Cosmopolis

Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis

Opens August 17th

Being a David Cronenberg picture, it’s surprising so much questioning has been thrown Cosmopolis’s way. For one, its leading man, some guy from Bel Ami, isn’t exactly a critical darling, but if anyone is going to get a genuine performance out of Robert Pattinson, it’s Cronenberg.

Secondly, the fact we’re stuck in the car with said lead for 2 hours has raised questions over whether the film will be “cinematic.” With Cronenberg behind the camera along with Paul Giamatti, Juliette Binoche, Kevin DurandMathieu Amalric, and Samantha Morton in front of it, how could it not be?

Side by Side 

Side By Side Movie

Opens August 17th and on VOD August 22nd

Martin Scorsese, James CameronThe WachowskisDavid FincherRoger DeakinsSteven SoderberghChristopher NolanGeorge Lucas, and a bunch of other cool director cats all in the same movie? Side by Side is a real nerdy love fest about filmmaking.

The Keanu Reeves-produced (and starring) doc isn’t so much a documentary about a “battle” between digital and film, but the love and admiration filmmakers have for both forms of storytelling.

Sleepwalk with Me 

Sleepwalk with Me

Opens August 24th

You don’t have to be a fan of co-director, co-writer, and star Mike Birbiglia to enjoy Sleepwalk with Me. The well-known comedian’s film is as funny as his stand up material, but also surprisingly more dramatic. Sleepwalk with Me has gone on to become something of a festival favorite the past few months, and for good reason.

Robot & Frank

Robot and Frank

Opens August 24th

A grumpy Frank Langella and robotic Peter Sarsgaard stealing from rich folks? You couldn’t find a finer criminal duo than that.

Lawless

Lawless Tom Hardy

Opens August 29th

The only film in John Hillcoat‘s depressing filmography anyone can call “fun.” Since this still is a Hillcoat film, though, Lawless is filled to the brim with brutal violence. Thanks to the towering presence of Tom Hardy, a fantastically revolting Guy Pearce, and a nice appearance made by Gary Oldman, Lawless is far more fun than Hillcoat’s usual knack for unflinching bleakness.

Honorable MentionsThe Possession (an effective trailer for a film with some positive buzz), 2 Days in New York (Julie Delpy and Chris Rock together!), and Premium Rush (hopefully David Koepp is as good of a director as he is a writer).
