Christine Trailer

"Do I not seem okay?" The Orchard has unveiled an official trailer for Antonio Campos' film Christine, the fictional version of the story about Christine Chubbuck, the Florida news reporter who shot herself on live TV in the 1970s. Rebecca Hall plays Chubbuck in this version of the story, which dramatizes her life and the events leading to her infamous suicide in 1974. This film is one of two that premiered at Sundance this year about Chubbuck, the other is the docu-drama Kate Plays Christine. In addition to Rebecca Hall, the cast of this includes Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, Timothy Simons, J. Smith-Cameron, Maria Dizzia and John Cullum. It's a very bleak drama that shows just how sad the state of news has become, with similar themes as Nightcrawler. The poster for this is also one of the best posters this year. See below.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Antonio Campos' Christine, in high def from Apple:

Christine Poster

Christine (Rebecca Hall), always the smartest person in the room at her local Sarasota, Florida news station, feels like she is destined for bigger things and is relentless in her pursuit of an on-air position in a larger market. As an aspiring newswoman with an eye for nuance and an interest in social justice, she finds herself constantly butting heads with her boss (Tracy Letts), who pushes for juicier stories that will drive up ratings. Plagued by self-doubt and a tumultuous home life, Christine's diminishing hope begins to rise when an on-air co-worker (Michael C. Hall) initiates a friendship which ultimately becomes yet another unrequited love. Disillusioned as her world continues to close in on her, Christine takes a dark and surprising turn. Christine is directed by filmmaker Antonio Campos, of Afterschool and Simon Killer previously. The screenplay is written by Craig Shilowich. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The Orchard will release Christine in theaters starting October 14th this fall. Intrigued?

Why are things so heavy? Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?

Her performance made me think I should watch this ...

News industry is a necrophagous animal that feed of the morbid curiosity of the masses.

Tough question. Why do people kill their kids and then kill themselves when they face a stressful ordeal ( bankruptcy, divorce, etc.) Is it by their internal logic a compassionate act, or an act of revenge? I don't mind if the person commits a suicide ( even though it's a horrible act morally reprehensible), as long as they keep the kids away from their folly. I think this woman wanted to make the audience feel guilty, through her desperate act. We need the expertise of a shrink here.

Hey Bo! We agree, then disagree, then agree to disagree, then agree again...That's the beauty of life and human intellect. ;D Well...Sex isn't dirty, if done well, and with a stock of towels. ;D Actually, what I meant by horrible act is tragic act. Forgive my bad wording. So a tragedy not only it affects the person who committed the suicide , but a whole group of the society. Friends, parents, wife/husband, children, etc. Suicide isn't a banal act. People will be left with an insidious guilt that could stay with them the whole life. Was it my fault? Why didn't see it coming? I shouldn't have been so rude with him... Now, as for the morally reprehensible, well, we live in society. And as long as we will do it, we can't get rid of morality. It's an essential tool to live together. Nudity is great if I live it in the intimacy, But I can;t walk nude on the street, because it can be very disturbing for other people. Imagine if you have a boner when you will see a naked girl walking before you. Hard to predict the consequences... If walking nude isn't morally reprehensible, what about having sex on the street? Your last paragraph left me confused. Did I read you well? Are you suffering from this terrible disease?

tarek on Sep 16, 2016


Humm... So it took us thousand years to cover our intimate parts, and you want us to go back to when we lived like animals? No, thanks. ;D I don't want to show my balls to my daughter or to my kind neighbours, nor do I want to see my female colleague's boobs while discussing the budget plan. My reptiluan brain will assuredly ask me to fertilise her as a response to the stimulus. Because you probably suspect or know why we are so attracted by a female body? Wide hips, big boobs and big butt are a sign of fertility. So our body will react to this by stating an uncontrollable chain reaction to perpetuate the specie. It's programmed in our genes...

i don't know Bo...If we can really get used of nudity, porn industry and striptease bars wouldn't be that demanded... ;D

One of the best rants from you Bo in a long time. I was very pleased with what I read. Very much agree with your attitude about the church or the religion in general. Also about the nudity and feeling of body. As for the question of death, possibility of fatal disease and choice to end it freely I will for a long time carry one of your sentence from before when you wrote 'I'm killing time until time kills me'. Very brave and well thought statement. Very much personal matter, too. I salute you for bravery with this one. Bo, Although, having your age must make you decide some serious things. Wish you well Bo, wish you very well. For as long time as possible ... Cheers ...

Saw my mother dying from cancer for years. Helped as much as I could until there were no more chances to help. With others, of course. That was some, I mean her, fighting against all the odds and medical prospects. Seeing someone facing death is seeing a lesson of bravery, now and always. So, I just appreciate those people who bravely see all what makes their lives worth against the opposite ... Yup, peace and respect, Bo ...

Bo, I have a problem with films and good subjects in them these days since they do those things often very poorly. So, I honor them with some respect since, at least, they do give a hint of something good. On the other hand, I have to be honest here and say, I despise most of the films nowadays since they are not even close to anything worth of mention. So, that's why I am willing to sacrifice some of my expectations in this and in so many other movies. They are just not up to the seriousness of the subject they choose to depict. As for the nature of the event staged with the faith of this unfortunate woman, I agree, it's questionable very much. And I agree it must not be done without some serious background behind it. Whether that contains psychological, cultural, social or mediatic questions. And I must agree that film should exploit such a good potential for something more, for depicting the state of affairs in the society and in mediascape (if I may use that word) in her and our time. Films, America's especially, never really do that so one sometimes just cling to what one has. When it comes to this, books, critically and theoretically serious, are better with this and with level of seriousness that this production probably would never achieve. So, Bo, partially, I agree with you, I also take that criticism of yours as founded in facts and I also defend possibility of mrs. Hall performance ... I hope you understand me ,,, Cheers ...

Hall really melted into this character. I don't think I will watch this, but it does look like a solid watch.
