It has been confirmed that A Serious Man, a new Coen Brothers flick set in 1967 about a Midwestern professor, is set to be released in the US on October 2, 2009.  Mark your calendars.  Thanks for the tip Coenesque!

Do you go out of your way to watch previews for upcoming films?  I used to do it much more often than I do know because it's good to know what your options are at the theater.  I found a list of 2009 movies you should be anticipating and thought you'd like to know about three of the movies involving characters from Coen films - Jeff Bridges, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Javier Bardem.  The link for the full article is included at the bottom.

The Boat That Rocked

The Boat That Rocked

Directed by: Richard Curtis,
Starring: Bill Nighy, Philip Seymour Hoffman , Nick Frost

Inspired by the British pirate radio revolution in the ’60s, the film tells the story of a group of DJs who are at the forefront of the pirate movement; putting them at odds with a traditionalist British government which prefers to broadcast jazz. Richard Curtis’ second directorial outing and his  first non-rom-com has a ridiculously fun cast that also includes Kenneth Branagh, Rhys Ifans, Emma Thompson and the lovely Gemma Arterton this should be a comedy to lookout for.

BIUTIFUL

Directed by: Alejandro González Iñárritu           
Starring: Javier Bardem, Rubén Ochandiano

Produced by the Cha, Cha, Cha team (Guillermo Del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron and Iñárritu), BIUTIFUL is the Oscar-nominated Mexican director’s first project since his much publicized split from writing partner Guillermo Arriaga (AMORES PERROS, BABEL, 21 GRAMS). Iñárritu has taken on sole screenwriting duties for the Spanish-language film which stars Javier Bardem as a wheeler-dealer confronted by a policeman who was his childhood friend. Shooting is currently underway in Barcelona, Spain and the music will be composed by Academy Award winning composer Gustavo Santaolalla. This is a cracking director-actor pairing and it should be interesting to see how Iñárritu fares on his own.

MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS

Directed by: Grant Heslov
Starring: George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey, Jeff Bridges

Damon’s mate Clooney has a damn fine moustache of his own in this upcoming film based on the book of the same name by Guardian columnist Jon Ronson. Scheduled for a December release, the film is a satiric espionage thriller set inside a secret, psychic military unit and it deals with the US Army’s exploration of New Age concepts during the war in Iraq. I am intrigued by the cast and the paranormal/psychic elements of the story; the whole thing sounds strangely appealing and the premise of the film is as odd as its title. Can’t wait to see how this will turn out!
