Trailer Thursday: Top 5 Film Clips Of The Week Including Parkland, A.C.O.D and Pompeii

23 August 2013 by

It's Trailer Thursday. Check out which big screens teasers we've been eyeing up this week...

1. Parkland

Peter Landesman's Parkland is so bone-chillingly intense you’ll have shivers running up and down your spine throughout. Hell, it may even bring a tear to your eye. With an all-star cast including Billy Bob Thornton, Paul Giamatti and Zac Efron, Landesman will have you looking at one of the most significant points in recent history with a whole new set of emotions.

2. Getaway

Selena Gomez pairs up with Ethan Hawke in the action packed thriller Getaway, where a man’s driving skills may be the only thing that can save his wife. Fans of Taken and Need for Speed will love this films combination of intense car chases and dramatic one liners – Liam Neeson would be proud!

3. A.C.O.D – Adult Children of Divorce

As if divorce wasn't traumatic enough, what about the kids? With the help of the ever fantastic Jane Lynch, A.C.O.D is a light-hearted film about the effects of divorce on children – when they’re adults. Proving they still know how to go wild, check out the cheeky parents Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara.

4. Pompeii

Pompeii portrays the awe inspiring damage Mount Vesuvius possesses as it threatens to keep a pair in love from being reunited. The plump rosey cheeks of Game of Thrones' Kit Harington and Emily Browning play the hopeless romantics. Can't say we've ever had a guy battling a volcano for our affections but it might just do the trick...

5. The Book Thief

While subjected to the horrors of World War II Germany, Liesel (Sophie Nélisse) finds solace in books and sharing them with others (they aren’t always hers to share but we don’t mind). Showing that the world offers hope in unexpected places, we’re brimming with excitement for this fantastic adaptation.
