Staying on top of the trailer circuit is a full-time job in and of itself. We’re here to help.
Trailer Watch returns this week and it features, in one way or another, two biopics, two films based on novels, two films by first-time feature directors, a Netflix original, and a 4:3-shot film that’s deeply steeped in everything 1990s. Oh that’s right, there are a few period pieces too!
Lizzie (dir. Craig William Macneill)
Chosen as one my most anticipated films of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, I wrote: “A historical thriller about the Lizzie Borden murders starring Kristen Stewart and, in the title role, Chloë Sevigny? Sign me up! As a “true crime” and Unsolved Mysteries obsessive, I’ve long been interested in the case of the prolific Massachusetts case.” Unfortunately, due to one scheduling conflict or another, the film, eight months later, remains one of my most anticipated, as I was unable to catch a screening back in snowy Park City, Utah.
