Thoughts I Had...While Staring at "Wonder Wheel"and "Tomb Raider" Posters

by Nathaniel R

Movie posters aren't everything.In fact,it's arguable that they do little to change whether or not someone wants to see a movie,at least not half as much as a trailer,commercial,or recommendation might.Still,there's a certain thrill in looking at them if you love movies.Reactions can vary all the way from amping up excitement about a movie you're already interested in,to puzzlement and pondering over how anyone in Hollywood marketing departments keeps their jobs.Every reaction inbetween those two poles happens,too.

So let's look at new posters forWonder WheelandTomb Raiderafter the jump with unedited thoughts as they come.(Please to do the same in the comments!)

NYFF Lineup: Call me by your florida project, Meyerowitz

The New York Film Festival's 55th edition begins on September 28th and runs through the first two weeks of October.This year they're super hooked on France (not that there's anything wrong with that) and their longstanding compulsion to screen every single thing that the prolific South Korean director Hong Sang-Soo has ever shot results in him hogging 2 of the 25 slots.Predicting a Hong Sang-Soo at NYFF is like saying "Woody Allen is filming an untitled new project this year"...it'salwaystrue so you will always be prophetic.

Joachim Trier's THELMA - will it be Norway's Oscar submission?

The results of the NYFF lineup are helpful when planning your Toronto festival because many of the titles overlap.If it's showing at NYFF I try to avoid it in Toronto knowing I can see it in just two weeks time.But in some cases the need to shove something in your eyeballs will be too great to wait.

How many of the foreign titles after the jump will be Oscar submissions this season?I'm guessing at least a few with the most likely being Sweden'sThe Squareand Norway'sThelma.Other possibilities are Argentina'sZama(though Argentina often has several options),Finland'sThe Other Side of Hope(Finland's sole nomination comes from this director) and Poland'sSpoor(two of Agnieszka Holland's previous movies have received an Oscar nomination,Europa Europain screenplay andIn Darknessfor foreign language film).

The lineup is after the jump...

NYTterribly sad debacle going on withThe Great Comet of 1812on Broadway.When I first heard about Mandy Patinkin's casting I was thrilled because I haven't yet seen the show and totally love that man.But it seems in order to accomodate him (in the role formerly played by Josh Groban) they were ousting their current leading man Okieriete "Oak"Onaodowan (fromHamilton)earlier than his scheduled final date.The optics look bad even though Broadway shows do these type of celebrity casting changes constantly.Patinkin has now dropped out and Oak won't extend and now the entire cast,which includes several actors of color (the show was previously praised for its diverse casting),could be out of jobs because they might close early due to the public outrage.

Exit Video
The new Charlie XCX video "Boys"is a sexy blast.So many celebrity cameos including the internet's current boyfriend Riz Ahmed,diver Tom Daley,and a slew of musicians.There is a chainsaw in this video but as Charli states

NO BOYS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO

2017 is full of 'Wonder'

Murtadahere.On twitter the CEO of the French distributor Mars,which usually distributes Woody Allen movies in France,announced that the title of his 2017 film isWonder Wheel.It stars Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake (playing a lifeguard,if thoseset photosare to be believed),as well as Juno Temple,Jim Belushi and Max Casella.The film was partly shot in Coney Island so we assume that the title refers to Deno's Wonder Wheel Amusement Park.July is our annual date with Woody so expect a US release announcement soon.

If this title holds it'll mark the 4th movie scheduled for release this year that contains the word "wonder"in its title.We don't have to remind you ofour most anticipated filmof the year,Todd Haynes'Wonderstruck.There's of courseWonder Woman.

And recently it was announced that a Julia Roberts - Jacob Tremblay collaboration,simply titledWonder,is coming out at Thanksgiving.Tremblay plays a kid with facial differences who becomes a hero when he goes to school for the first time in his young life.Roberts and Owen Wilson are his parents and the director is Stephen Chbosky (Perks of Being a Wallflower).

ObviouslyWonder Womandoesn't have to worry about anyone mixing it up with the other three.But one of the others will definately blink and change its title,no?Lay down your bets on which film will it be.
