The Breadwinner Trailer

“When I was young, Parvana, I knew what peace felt like…” GKids has debuted the full-length theatrical trailer for an animated film titled The Breadwinner, set in the heart of Afghanistan telling the story of a girl who dresses as a boy in order to work and provide for her family. This is directed by Nora Twomey, one of the co-directors of the lovely Oscar-nominated animated film The Secret of Kells, and it feature some stunning animation. It’s also executive produced by Angelina Jolie. Featuring the voice of Saara Chaudry as the lead girl Parvana, as well as Laara Sadiq, Shaista Latif, Ali Badshah, Noorin Gulamgaus, and Kawa Ada. I recently saw this at the London Film Festival and it’s a fantastic, heartbreaking film that is important for all to see because it can help us understand different cultures. I recommend it. Worth a watch. ›››

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

“Every so often, they see something.” A mysterious new teaser debuted this week without a title or much info, aside from a link to website. The video is called “This Means Something” and shows an encounter with a UFO from the perspective of an air traffic control radar. There are a few splices of scenes from Close Encounters of the Third Kind in the video with links it to the classic Spielberg sci-fi film first released in 1977. Thanks to some investigating by SlashFilm, they’ve discovered that this is a teaser for an upcoming theatrical re-release of Close Encounters to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the film. Aside from that, we don’t know which version will be showing but this is an announcement that it’s arriving September. This is cool, but I hope we get more marketing – another poster + another trailer before this returns to theaters. ›››
