I have never really fancied FTS to be much of a movie news site, which is why I rarely bother posting the latest movie news. On occasion, I’ll share something that peaks my interest or write a little about it, but I usually don’t find any real reason to post something that I’ve already seen a million times somewhere else. But with access to press materials and releases, I don’t want to have it go to waste. I love checking out new images and stills from films so I thought I could show off some nice ones from a few different movies each week. Some old and some upcoming, enjoy a little bit of eye candy courtesy of FTS.
Jiro Dreams Of Sushi
This little doc popped up on my radar a while back after seeing a trailer on Apple Trailers. The movie follows Yoshikazu, son of 85-year-old sushi master Jiro Ono, as he tries his best to fill his father’s shoes and become just as successful in the art of sushi making. The film seems simple and innocent enough – there’s no flash or dramatic conflicts brewing – just a story about people we otherwise don’t know too much about. But the film’s main selling point seems to be this incredible and beautiful sushi the master chef puts together. I’m no foodie but this film sure makes me wanna be one.
Nothing in these photos really stands out, but for a film with a cast featuring Demi Moore and Miley Cyrus I’m surprised to say I know very little about it’s existence. I have yet to watch the trailer but the synopsis notes that the film is about YouTube, iTunes, Facebook, and some girl named Lola so I stopped reading. Some other faces in the cast include Gina Gershon, Ashley Greene and Thomas Jane. And just in cast you are playing a game of 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon with Miley Cyrus anytime soon you can totally do it real quick by connecting Bacon in A Few Good Men with Demi Moore.
This is the throwback for today. From 2008, The Wackness focuses on a few New Yorkers in the summer of 1994 and features fine performances from Ben Kingsly, Olivia Thirlby and the slimmed down former Nickelodeon star Josh Peck. The film captures the essence of summer in the city and makes for a nice cool down activity on one of those hot summer days. It isn’t perfect but has it’s charms and is certainly worth watching.
