A Most Violent Year Trailer

"Are you maybe doing something to bring this on yourself?" A24 has debuted a second excellent trailer for J.C. Chandor's new film A Most Violent Year, starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in a crime drama set in 1980's New York City. Isaac plays an honest, ambitious immigrant businessman trying to stay clean in a very rough year. I'm going to come out and say it: this trailer is absolutely beautiful. The way the (perfect choice of) music builds throughout, there are some totally stunning shots from cinematographer Bradford Young (of Ain't Them Bodies Saints), the story looks compelling, the direction looks bold, I'm impressed. This may just be a sleeper surprise late in the awards season. Seriously, give this your attention.

Here's the second trailer for J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year, direct from A24 Films' YouTube:

Update! Here's an additional new UK teaser trailer to compliment the US trailer, found on YouTube:

See the first official trailer for A Most Violent Year, and stay tuned for additional updates from @A24Films.

A Most Violent Year is written and directed by J.C. Chandor (All is Lost, Margin Call). Set during the winter of 1981 -- statistically one of the most crime-ridden of New York City’s history -- the film follows the lives of an immigrant and his family as they attempt to capitalize on the American Dream, while the rampant violence, decay, and corruption of the day drag them in and threaten to destroy all they have built. Jessica Chastain, Oscar Isaac, Albert Brooks and David Oyelowo star in the film that A24 sends to New York and Los Angeles on December 31st and will expand wide to more theaters throughout January 2015. Good?

    Jessica Chastain is looking better and better with every film... I'll watch it for her. As for the story; it's mediocre narrative...
    Damn this looks good. Chastain you done it again!!! // That male actor looks like a young (old) DeNiro.

    Wow! This looks like a masterpiece for the ages. Both Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain are clearly terrific (and I also adore the Pacino / DeNiro vibes in Isaac's performance) but dammit, if Jessica Chastain isn't going to win the Best Supporting Actress Award at the 87th Academy Awards ceremony, I don't see why the Best Supporting Actress Award category should exist. Give this woman her Best Supporting Actress Award for "A most violent year" and her Best Leading Actress Award for "The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby" already! Just give her everything, proclaim her as queen of cinema!!! She's maybe an android or something, because it's impossible for human measures to have a talent like hers. I'm obviously kidding, but I'm really in awe of her groundbreaking talent. She's just the best of the best!
  • Why?
    Jessica is channeling Michelle Pfeiffer from Scarface. All I kept seeing was Elvira.
