Trailer Park Tuesdays - Whiplash
Welcome to Trailer Par. . WILL YOU TURN THAT RACKET DOWN?!!
Today's movie trailer is for Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury and Audience Award winner WHIPLASH, a movie I have been highly anticipating since reading some early reviews, and now that anticipation has been augmented by a movie trailer! This looks like a good one.
Whiplash is about a young jazz drummer who wants to be the best. His teacher is a total dick.
Onscreen fireworks ensue.
The film stars Miles Teller, a young actor who has been tearing it up (Rabbit Hole, The Spectacular Now), and who looks like he tears it up royally in this one. I've heard nothing but good things about this kid in this movie. You'll be seeing more of Mr. Teller next year; he just landed the gig of Reed Richards in the Fantastic Four reboot.
Starring opposite Teller is a terrifying J.K. Simmons (Burn After Reading, Spider-Man, TV's OZ). He's beyond intense. Jesus. . . who could be taught be this guy?
Whiplash is written and directed by Damien Chazelle (writer, Grand Piano) and will see a limited theatrical release this fall, starting October 10th.
