Les Miserables-Trailer

Here is the trailer for the musical film Les Miserables staring Hugh Jackman,Anne Hathaway,Russel Crowe,Amanda Seyfried and Samantha Barks.The trailer is possibly the best trailer released this year after the Prometheus .It features Anne Hatthaway who plays the dying prostitute Fantine singing 'I Dream a Dream'.If the movie and Anne  fulfils its expectation,I'm sure she is gonna win her first Oscar!

The Great Gatsby-trailer

This week ,lots of trailers  of Oscar bait movies have been released.So here is the trailer of The Great Gatsby staring Leonardo DiCaprio,Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan.The film is about Nick Carraway(Tobey Maguire) who gets interested  with his who his mysterious sudden rich millionaire(DiCaprio).
I'm loving the trailer and based on the trailer ,the film seems to be a great contender of the art direction category and the costumes design besides the acting department.

The Master-teaser trailer

So here is the teaser from Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master staring Phillip Seymour Hoffman,Amy Adams and Joaquin Phoenix after a long absence onscreen.The film deals on the Master(Hoffman) who builds this new religion during the 60s.The teaser only features Joaquin but I absolutely loving it as it kinda reminds us that we miss seeing a great  actor like him onscreen.This is a major Oscar bait film with the guy who directed There Will Be Blood directing the project and the amazing cast.Check it out

Hyde Park On Hudson-Trailer

Here is the trailer of the film Hyde Park on Hudson staring Bill Murray as Franklin Roosevelt,Laura Linney as Margaret Suckley and Olivia Williams as Eleanor Roosevelt.The film is about the relationship between the president and his distant cousin.All three actors I that I mentioned are in my list of actors to earn a Oscar nod this year.Check it out.

Won't Back Down- Trailer

Starring Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal,Won't Back Down is about how two women gets together to improve the school system for the sake of their children and the community.
I'm not impressed with the trailer as it looks like a trailer for a TV film.So finger's crossed that the film will be much better than the trailer as I'm rooting for Viola Davis for another nod next year.

85th Academy Awards-Best Supporting Actress(predictions)

1.Amy Adams,The Master(predicted winner)

-Three times Oscar nominee,Amy Adams will  be joining her Doubt co-star Phillip Seymour Hoffman,playing  Mary Sue Dodd,the wife of the master who is about to start a new religion.Less is known about this film but based on the director Paul Thomas Anderson and the cast involved,this is a Oscar bait role.

2.Anne Hathaway,Les Miserables

-Playing the dying prostitute Fantine in Les Miserables,Anne Hathaway is probably going to earn her second Oscar nod for this film after Rachel Getting Married.She had physically transformed into the character by losing lots of weight and cutting her hair.In addition,she is also have a nice  singing voice.And by the look of the leaked trailer,I wouldn't be surprised if she wins.

3.Sally Field,Lincoln

-Sally Field had impressed me in all her movies and television roles.In this biopic of the famous US president,Sally Field will be playing Mary Todd Lincoln ,the supportive wife of Abraham Lincoln despite of her health conditions.This film is probably gonna get nominated for most of the category just because the big and amazing names attached to it .

4.Marion Cotillard,Rust and Bone

-The french beauty will be playing a very vulnerable role of a killer whale trainer who loses her two legs.Based on the reviews from the Cannes,critics have been praising her take on the character.

5.Olivia Williams,Hyde Park On Hudson

-Have you seen her in Ghost Writer and An Education?She was beyond great in those films.Two very distinct roles and yet  succeeded with ease.In Hyde Park On Hudson,Williams plays Eleanor Roosevelt the  First Lady and the film explore her husbands infidelity

Other Possible contenders

6.Samantha Barks,Les Miserables

-Samantha will be playing the role Eponine,the daughter of Thenardiers who is falling for Marius which will be played by Eddie Redmayne.Its a sympathetic role and since Barks is already familiar to the role I'm pretty sure she would nail it.
7.Kerry Washington,Django Unchained

-In this Quentin Taratino film,Kerry Washington plays Broomhilda  ,a slave who is captured by a plantation owner(Leonardo DiCaprio) .Her Character is the focal point of the plot as the movie is about how the freed husband played by Jamie Foxx saves the wife.
8.Tabu, Life Of Pi

-One of India's boldest and best actress,Tabu would be playing Pi's mother in this Ang Lee adaptation.If you have seen some of her Indian films, you would realise that she superb in all the films she is in.To many,I reckon you would recognise her in Mira Nair's The Namesake.

End of Watch -Trailer

Here is the trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal End of Watch trailer.I'm so excited for this film as it has been quite long since we saw Jake onscreen .In the film Jake plays a cop while Anna Kendrick plays his love interest.The film does look interesting the bald look with the violence in the trailer reminds us of Jake's Jarhead

The Dark Knight Rises-trailer

Here is the trailer of the  most anticipated film  of 2012 The Dark Knight Rises.

This time we get some clearer glimpses of the supporting cast such as the amazing Joseph Gordon Levitt,Anne Hatthaway and Gary Oldman.The trailer does look great but I'm quite sceptical whether it can surpass the previous film where the character Joker played by the late Heath Ledger stole the show.On the plus side,both Bane and Selina Kyle looks awesome!
