I worship at the altar of Ang Lee! A director who has proved he can direct any genre, whether it's a period piece ("Sense and Sensibility"), martial arts ("Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"), comic book adaptation ("Hulk"), and drama ("Brokeback Mountain").
The Academy award winning director is set to return to the big screen with "Taking Woodstock" in August 14. It's a dramedy about a young man who accidentally sets Woodstock in motion.
Demetri Martin, who stars in the film, debuted the trailer in his Comedy Central show, "Important Things with Demetri Martin."
Based on the book by Elliot tiber, Martin co-stars with Emile Hirsch, Liev Screiber, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Paul Dano.
And the trailer makes me want to watch the movie now! I can't wait! Hippies, Ang Lee, and a Great Cast!

The last time we saw a Tony Scott movie was back in 2006 for "Deja Vu." So it's a welcome treat to see a new film from the director even though the plot is very similar to "The Cassandra Crossing."
Scott's thriller will be called "Unstoppable" and it's about an unmanned runaway train carrying toxic chemicals. Very similar to "The Cassandra Crossing" where passengers of a European train have been exposed to a deadly disease.
I loved that movie as a child. I guess I was happy with all these disaster flicks
Just to travel back in time, take a look at the trailer for "The Cassandra Crossing."

Matthew McConaughey is set to play another lawyer in the upcoming legal thriller, "The Lincoln Lawyer."
Based on the book by Michael Connolly, McConaughey is attached to star as low-level criminal defense attorney Michael Haller who has to defend a super-rich client. The problem is, this wealthy customer may have ties to a previous murder case that Haller handled.
The last time McConaughey starred as a lawyer, effectively, was in "A Time to Kill" based on a John Grisham novel.
