Full Trailer for Documentary 'Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives'

Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives Trailer

"The greatest record man of all-time." IM Global has unveiled the official trailer for a music documentary titled Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives, profiling the life and work of Clive Davis. Davis is a music executive known for finding and turning many great artists into legends, by supporting their music and knowing how to make hit songs. The doc takes a look at his historic career, starting at at Columbia Records through his trailblazing work at Arista Records and J Records. It's Sean "P. Diddy" Combs who, at the end of this trailer, actually says that Davis is responsible for the "soundtrack for our lives", hence the official title of this doc. There seams to be a great amount of fantastic music docs these days, and this is yet another one to add to the queue, especially if you want to see a unique perspective from inside the industry.

Meet the Blind Magician in First Full Trailer for 'Dealt' Documentary

Dealt Documentary Trailer

"I represent why you should never play cards with strangers." IFC FIlms has debuted an official trailer for a documentary titled Dealt, introducing us to and telling the story of Richard Turner, a world famous magician who is completely blind. Turner went blind as a child, and then dedicated his life to learning how to do things that one can't do when they're blind - including becoming an expert in sleight of hand and card tricks. I've been looking forward to seeing this doc ever since I first heard about it earlier this year. I love what Turner says in this trailer about how he wants to be known for what he does on its own merit. I wish I could go see him perform live somewhere. This really seems like a fascinating and fantastic doc. Deal me in.

Blake Lively in Official Trailer for Marc Forster's Drama 'All I See Is You'

All I See Is You Trailer

"Well, we don't really know what me is, do we?" Open Road Films has unveiled an official trailer for All I See Is You, the latest from director Marc Forster (of Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace, World War Z). Blake Lively stars as a woman who was blinded in a near-fatal car accident when she was young. She now lives in Thailand, happily married to her husband, played by Jason Clarke. When she receives implants and can see again, their lives and relationship are upended by the truths that come to light. The cast includes Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Huston, Ahna O'Reilly, and Wes Chatham. This seems like an odd relationship drama that has been quietly sitting on the shelf all year. It almost seems like there's some twist in this where it turns out he's a serial killer, or something, I can't really tell. Take a look.

First Trailer for Crime Drama 'November Criminals' with Ansel Elgort

November Criminals Trailer

"My friend just got killed… You can't expect me just to sit around and not do anything about it!" Sony has debuted the first official trailer for a crime drama titled November Criminals, from the director of Anvil: The Story of Anvil and Hitchcock previously. Adapted from Sam Munson's novel of the same name, the story is about a high schooler who takes on his own investigation of a murder in Washington D.C. The film stars Ansel Elgort and Chloe Grace Moretz, along with Catherine Keener, David Strathairn, Cory Hardrict, Terry Kinney, Danny Flaherty, Victor Williams, and Tessa Albertson. Maybe it is just because I'm seeing Ansel Elgort once again, but this reminds me of so many other films recently, including Paper Towns and Netflix's "13 Reasons Why". Here's to hoping it's good, but I'm not entirely sure just yet.

Morgan Freeman in Full Trailer for Action Comedy 'Just Getting Started'

Just Getting Started Trailer

"I've got a big secret, wanna hear?" Broad Green Pictures has unveiled an official trailer for the new old-timers action comedy Just Getting Started, formerly titled Villa Capri until this official trailer arrived. From director Ron Shelton (of Bull Durham, White Men Can't Jump, Tin Cup) the film is about an ex-FBI agent and an ex-mob lawyer in the witness protection program who have to get over their petty old folks' home rivalry in order to save themselves from a mob hit. Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones star, with a cast including Glenne Headly, Rene Russo, Joe Pantoliano, Elizabeth Ashley, Sheryl Lee Ralph, Graham Beckel, and Mel Raido. This seems to be another one of those super cheesy "old people can still be funny" comedies we see all the time that really aren't that funny. This is definitely not for me.

Te Ata Trailer

"What can you show me that I haven't seen before?" Paladin has debuted the official trailer and poster for an indie biopic titled Te Ata (pronounced TAY AH-TAH), telling the true story of the renowned Chickasaw storyteller who entertained at the White House, befriended the First Lady, performed for European Royalty and on stages around the world in an illustrious career that spanned more than sixty years. Native American actress Q'orianka Kilcher stars as Mary Thompson Fisher (aka Te Ata Thompson Fisher), who dreamed of being on Broadway but was constantly rejected. Born in Indian Territory, and raised on the songs and stories of her Chickasaw tribe, Te Ata's journey to find her true calling led her through isolation, discovery, and love. The cast includes Graham Greene, Gil Birmingham, Brigid Brannagh, Mackenzie Astin, and Cindy Pickett. If you're curious about this film at all, the trailer is definitely worth a quick look. Enjoy.

Elisabeth Moss in First Trailer for HBO's New Short Film 'Tokyo Project'

Tokyo Project Trailer

"You ever spend the night with a stranger?" HBO has unveiled a trailer for a short film they're debuting this October. Tokyo Project is a 30-minute short from director Richard Shepard (Dom Hemingway, The Hunting Party, The Matador), produced by Lena Dunham. Ebon Moss-Bachrach stars as Sebastian, a man on a business trip to Tokyo. He keeps running into a mysterious woman named Claire, as played by Elisabeth Moss. They eventually hook up, but also end up dealing with their own sordid pasts. Co-starring Shu Kakizawa. This obviously reminds me of Lost in Translation, but hopefully it's a bit different. I am always up for anything with Elisabeth Moss, because she is so talented, and this looks like it could be good.

Prolific American Actor Harry Dean Stanton Has Passed Away at 91

Harry Dean Stanton

Sad news to report about a very talented, beloved actor. Harry Dean Stanton has died at age 91 (report via The Guardian) at a hospital in Los Angeles. Stanton has a legendary, prolific actor who appeared in over 100 different roles throughout the years. Many may recognize him because he's probably been in something you've seen, or a movie you love, there's no question about it. Roger Ebert even created the "Stanton-Walsh Rule", saying: "No movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad." Stanton most recently appeared on the new "Twin Peaks" show, playing Carl Rodd, and has a film out this year (titled Lucky). He also dabbled in writing and music, but ended up sticking to acting.

Must Watch Adorable Trailer for JR & Agnes Varda's Doc 'Faces, Places'

Faces, Places Documentary Trailer

"It's funny we didn't cross paths sooner." Cohen Media Group has unveiled an official trailer for Faces, Places, a wonderful documentary starring JR & Agnes Varda, who team up for a road trip around France to photograph and talk with locals in small towns about life and love. Also known as Visages, Villages in French, this film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival to rave reviews. It totally won me over, it's one of the most uplifting, inspiring, lovely films this entire year and it made me so happy (here's my full review). Seriously, you'll leave with a huge smile on your face. The way they bring life to these towns just by talking with people and photographing them is heartwarming. I can't recommend this enough, and I really hope it finds a grand audience. The more people that go see this charming film, the better, it'll bring joy to so many.

Sophia Mitri Schloss Stars in Trailer for Coming-of-Age Film 'Lane 1974'

Lane 1974 Trailer

"You have to understand, sometimes things in life don't happen the way you want them to…" The Orchard has premiered an official trailer for an indie coming-of-age film titled Lane 1974, set in 1974 telling the story of a young teenage girl raised in the communes and dusty back woods of Northern California. Sophia Mitri Schloss stars as Lane, with a cast including Katherine Moennig, Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sara Coates, Linas Phillips, Annette Toutonghi, Sarah-Eve Gazitt, and Erik Braa. This almost seems like the all-woman version of Captain Fantastic, about a mother who is raising her family in the woods, free from the typical capitalistic amenities of modern society. It also reminds me a bit of The Glass Castle, about a woman raised by weird parents. I'm still intrigued by this, just not sure if it will have much else to offer.

Trailer for Documentary 'Gilbert' Profiling Comedian Gilbert Gottfried

Gilbert Gottfried Doc Trailer

"He doesn't really filter himself, and I think that's why people are drawn to him." Submarine has debuted an official trailer for a documentary titled Gilbert, telling the story of the legendary "comedian's comedian" Gilbert Gottfried. Most will recognize Gottfried's voice first and foremost, along with his famous roles in big films like Aladdin and Beverly Hills Cop II, but he's so much more than just a funny voice. This new documentary takes a peek "behind the larger-than-life persona at a more personal story about growing up in Brooklyn and becoming a husband and father late in life." Surprisingly it also "strips the comedic character away to reveal the man behind it." There's some great footage in this trailer, and tons of other comedians talking about him, which is wonderful to see. I'm looking forward to watching this doc at some point soon.

Second Trailer for Kosinski's Wildfire Firefighters Film 'Only the Brave'

Only the Brave Trailer

"When this thing sweeps over you, it's going to feel like the end of the world." Sony has debuted a second trailer for the film Only the Brave, telling the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots firefighters. Directed by Tron Legacy's Joe Kosinski, Only the Brave is about an elite crew of firemen from Prescott, Arizona who battled a wildfire in Yarnell, AZ in June of 2013 that claimed the lives of 19 of their members. The huge cast includes Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Geoff Stults, Andie MacDowell, Ben Hardy, Taylor Kitsch, and Jennifer Connelly. This was titled Granite Mountain Hotshots before being changed to Only the Brave. With so many more dangerous wildfires ablaze right now, I'm not sure if this is good timing or bad timing, but it does seem like this has a positive message.
