We know this is a long shot, but there’s a chance that people are going to be interested in discussing movies other than “The Avengers” this weekend, right? Right? Well, we hope so, because we’ve got a few new clips from some upcoming movies that you might want to take a look at.
First up is a short clip from “Safety Not Guaranteed” featuring two actors we’re rather fond of -- Mark Duplass and Aubrey Plaza. The film follows a journalist digging behind the story of a man looking for a partner to time travel with. Duplass plays Kenneth, the man looking to escape from the present, and he does most of the talking in the clip telling a tale from his childhood, while Plaza, typically, says little but remains a charming presence throughout. Nerds that celebrate May the Fourth (sigh) will be pleased to see that there’s a “Star Wars” reference in this one too. The film opens on June 8th.
Next up is a clip from “Hick” featuring talented up-and-comer Chloe Grace Moretz and the walking mannequin Blake Lively, in a tale of young runway, a grifter and lots and lots of accents. The clip shows Moretz’s character faking a seizure to distract from Lively robbing the convenience store they’re in, except the reaction they get isn’t exactly what they were expecting. This goes VOD and hits theaters on May 11th.
Lastly, there’s a new clip from "Bel Ami" – a film which barely scraped past $5m internationally, and is released on VOD in the U.S. today. R-Patz dances a merry jig with Christina Ricci in this clip before Tonks from 'Harry Potter' (aka Natalie Tena) turns up and reveals some information which prompts Ricci to give him a good old slap. We can’t tell you what she says though, as it’s too rude for this clip to make audible. Check it out on VOD if you want to hear it all, we guess. Watch 'em all below. [PopSugar/JustJared/PopSugar]
