First Official Trailer for “Lullaby” starring Garrett Hedlund and Amy Adams

The first trailer for ARC Entertainment’s Lullaby has officially been released! Let me tell you, this looks like it is going to be an amazing and emotional film.

Lullaby stars Garrett Hedlund, Richard Jenkins, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Anne Archer, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson, and Jessica Barden. Here is an official synopsis (via Apple Movie Trailers):

“Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours’ time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert (Jenkins) fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients’ rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother (Archer), sister (Brown-Findlay), and his love (Adams) and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts—a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient (Barden) and a no-nonsense nurse (Hudson). Through this intensely life-affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.”

Does this look like a film you would be interested in seeing? What do you think of this first trailer? Lullaby will be available on iTunes and be released in theaters on June 13.

Hypable and Page to Premiere recently shared four new stills from The Fault in Our Stars movie adaptation! These images give us a closer look at the swing set scene and the dinner scene in Amsterdam.

The Fault in Our Stars - #31

For those unfamiliar with the story, Hazel, her mom, and Augustus end up going on a short trip to Amsterdam to meet Hazel’s favorite author, Peter Van Houten. The trip ends up being quite disappointing because Van Houten is not very welcoming during their visit.

One still seems to be showing Hazel asking her mom for advice as she is getting ready for dinner out with Augustus. This is the only still that reveals a moment not shown in the trailer. The three other stills are simply giving us a closer glimpse at moments already revealed in the recent trailer.
