MANGLEHORN – Trailer

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

Here is the second trailer for the upcoming film MANGLEHORN. The movie is directed by David Gordon Green, starring Al Pacino, Chris Messina, Holly Hunter and Harmony Korine.

The film will be released June 19th in theaters and on VOD.

Reclusive small town locksmith A.J. Manglehorn (Al Pacino) has never recovered from losing the love of his life, Clara. Fixated on her memory, he feels closer to his beloved cat than the people around him. Still, he forges on with his tenuous human connections, maintaining intermittent contact with his son (Chris Messina) and taking misplaced pride in a former protégé gone astray, and establishing a cautious friendship with a kind woman from the local bank. As this solitary man approaches the possibility of new love, he finds himself at a crossroads between staying mired in the past and embracing the present. Instilled with director David Gordon Green’s unique brand of eccentricity and anchored by a remarkably rich, understated performance from Pacino, Manglehorn is a movingly humanistic portrait of a man rendered with unsentimental simplicity and idiosyncratic humor.

The film will be released in New York on January 23, 2015

Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) is in pain. Her physical pain is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each tentative step. She’s no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of searing insult, Claire’s anger seethes out of her with nearly every interaction. She has driven away her husband, her friends – even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out.

The only one left in Claire’s otherwise solitary existence is her housekeeper-cum-caretaker, Silvana (Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza), who barely tolerates her boss’ need for liquor and prescription pills. But the suicide of Nina (Academy Award nominee Anna Kendrick), one of Claire’s fellow chronic-pain group members, prompts another fixation. In pursuing questions about the death of a woman she barely knew, Claire explores the boundaries between life and death, abandonment and heartbreak, danger and salvation. As she inserts herself into the lives of Nina’s husband (Sam Worthington) and the son Nina left behind, Claire just might find salvation.

From writer-director Gia Coppola comes an astonishing debut feature that deftly captures the complicated ties, heightened emotions, and romantic highs and lows of adolescence. Based on several linked stories by James Franco, PALO ALTO is a teenage movie for the ages, made indelible though its ensemble cast featuring some of the most gifted up-and-coming young actors working today.

Shy, sensitive April (Emma Roberts) is the class virgin -a popular soccer player and frequent babysitter for her single-dad coach, Mr. B. (James Franco). Teddy (Jack Kilmer) is an introspective artist whose best friend and sidekick Fred (Nat Wolff) is an unpredictable live wire with few filters or boundaries. While April negotiates a dangerous affair with Mr. B., and Teddy performs community service for a DUI – secretly carrying a torch for April, who may or may not share his affection – Fred seduces Emily (Zoe Levin), a promiscuous loner who seeks validation through sexual encounters. One high-school party bleeds into another as April and Teddy finally acknowledge their mutual affection, and Fred’s escalating recklessness spirals into chaos.

Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) met in high school, married young and are growing apart. Now thirty, Celeste is the driven owner of her own media consulting firm, Jesse is once again unemployed and in no particular rush to do anything with his life. Celeste is convinced that divorcing Jesse is the right thing to do — she is on her way up, he is on his way nowhere, and if they do it now instead of later, they can remain supportive friends. Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even though he is still in love with her. As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, and her decision, which once seemed mature and progressive, now seems impulsive and selfish. But her timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous. While navigating the turbulent changes in their lives and in their hearts, these two learn that in order to truly love someone, you may have to let them go.

The films are each an official selection of the Festival and feature notable actors such as Jenna Fischer, Topher Grace, Malin Akerman, Tomer Sisley, Andy Serkis and Thomas Brodie-Sangster.

Tribeca Film also announced it has acquired North American rights to BOOKER’S PLACE: A MISSISSIPPI STORY, rounding out its selection of titles to be released during the Festival. BOOKER’S PLACE is a riveting documentary offering a wholly original perspective on the Civil Rights struggle through its subject, Booker Wright. The film is directed by Raymond De Felitta and produced by eyepatch productions, the independent in-house production company of Ogilvy & Mather, New York. The deal was negotiated by Nick Savva, Director of Acquisitions for Tribeca Film, and Steven Beer of Greenberg Traurig, LLP, on behalf of filmmakers De Felitta and producing partner David Zellerford, who teamed up with co-Producer Yvette Johnson, Booker Wright’s granddaughter.

From April 17 through June 19, THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN, DEATH OF A SUPERHERO and SLEEPLESS NIGHT will be available in more than 40 million homes via cable, telco and satellite systems.

Tribeca Film will also begin to roll out these films theatrically, starting with BOOKER’S PLACE on April 25 and THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN on April 27.

“Tribeca Film was founded as a distribution platform to help filmmakers find audiences and, equally important, audiences find films utilizing new connections and strategies,” said Geoff Gilmore. “To that end, we are pleased to support these four features. They embody the exceptional artistry and personal resonance that filmmaking at its finest can provide, and we are proud to be able to share these films with audiences across the country.”

Details on the films premiering on VOD:

BOOKER’S PLACE: A MISSISSIPPI STORY, directed by Raymond De Felitta. (USA) – World Premiere in TFF’s Spotlight section. In 1965, filmmaker Frank De Felitta made a documentary for NBC News about the changing times in Mississippi that featured Booker Wright – an African-American waiter who worked in a “whites only” restaurant. Booker went on national television and exploded the myth of who he was and his position serving the white community. 46 years later, Frank’s son, director Raymond De Felitta (CITY ISLAND, TWO FAMILY HOUSE), documents a journey into the past and current-day Mississippi with Booker’s granddaughter, in search of who Booker Wright was, the intricacies surrounding his courageous life and untimely murder, and the role Frank De Felitta’s documentary may have played in it. BOOKER’S PLACE will begin a theatrical release on April 25 in L.A. and April 27 in New York.

DEATH OF A SUPERHERO, directed by Ian Fitzgibbon, written by Anthony McCarten. (Ireland, Germany) – U.S. premiere in TFF’s Viewpoints section.

But when Donald discovers that a very real enemy is trying to kill him, an unorthodox psychologist tries to help him find the light in an otherwise dark world. Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Andy Serkis and Aisling Loftus star in this exceptionally honest drama about discovering life, love, and death. DEATH OF A SUPERHERO will have a limited theatrical release beginning May 4.

THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN, directed and written by Lee Kirk. (USA) – World Premiere in TFF’s Spotlight section. Thirty-somethings Janice (Jenna Fischer) and Tim (Chris Messina) haven’t quite learned how to navigate adulthood. Tim is a street performer whose unique talents as a “living statue” don’t exactly pay the bills. Janice is out of work and under pressure by her sister (Malin Akerman) to date an egotistical self-help guru (Topher Grace). In this charming comedic romance, these two strangers help each other to realize that it only takes one person to make you feel important. THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN will have a limited theatrical release starting April 27 in New York.

SLEEPLESS NIGHT (Nuit Blanche), directed by Frederic Jardin, written by Frederic Jardin and Nicolas Saada. (France, Belgium, Luxembourg) – New York Premiere in TFF’s Cinemania section.

When Vincent travels to the outskirts of Paris to trade the drugs for his son, he gets caught in an intense cat-and-mouse game that quickly spirals out of control. This night might not only be the longest of his life—it could be the last. SLEEPLESS NIGHT will have a limited theatrical release beginning May 11 in New York.
