Coming Attractions: Gimme Shelter

Film: Gimme Shelter

Actors: Vanessa Hudgens, Rosario Dawson and Brendan Fraser

Release Date: January 24, 2014

I’m really excited about this coming attraction. The film, Gimme Shelter, stars Vanessa Hudgens is a down on her luck pregnant teen that’s searching for her rich father.

Vanessa Hudgens, of Disney Channel and Spring Breakers fame, is back with a film that may contribute a positive boost to her film career. I’ve been following her career since her days on Disney and even her musical pursuits, but when I saw pictures for this upcoming film I knew this had the potential to be great.

From the above pictures you can see the transformation that Vanessa went through in order to deliver this role. The trailer alone displays the depth and range of Vanessa’s acting that I’ve personally never seen from her before. I’m expecting this film to be critically acclaimed and elevate Vanessa’s career and hopefully she’ll followup with more films like this.

 

Coming Attractions: The Dallas Buyers Club

There has been a lot press surrounding the new film, The Dallas Buyers Club, this film festival season and I’m intrigued. The film stars Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner. I first heard about this movie before filming began because of the extreme amount of weight Matthew lost for the film. Not to mention, the fact that I’m excited to see Jennifer Garner getting back to work. 

Here’s a synopsis of the film:

The story of Texas electrician Ron Woodroof and his battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies after being diagnosed as HIV-positive in 1986, and his search for alternative treatments that helped established a way in which fellow HIV-positive people could join for access to his supplies.

The Dallas Buyers Club will be released in limited theaters beginning on November 1, 2013.
