Trailer Buzz: ‘Rememory,’ ‘The Wilde Wedding,’ ‘The Florida Project’

Today’s trailer roundup showcases three star-studded upcoming indie films, two of which are coming hot off major festival premieres:

Rememory

When it comes out: September 8 (limited release and VOD).

Who is in it: Peter Dinklage, Julia Ormond, Martin Donovan, Anton Yelchin, Henry Ian Cusick.

What it is about: Dinklage stars as a detective investigating the death of a tech pioneer (Donovan) under assignment from his widow (Ormond). And to help him on the case, he uses a memory-extracting machine created by the deceased. The movie, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival and is co-written and directed by Mark Palansky (Penelope), features Yelchin’s final performance.

What people are saying about the movie:

“Peter Dinklage delivers a soulful lead perf that will attract fans’ attention.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“If it weren’t for Dinklage’s remarkable performance, the film would have very little to recommend it.” – Meredith Borders, Birth.Movies.Death

“It’s shot well and features stirring performances from Peter Dinklage and Julia Ormond, but it doesn’t have a thought in its sci-fi head or genuine bone in its emotional body.” – Scott Beggs, Nerdist

The Wilde Wedding

When it comes out: September 15 (limited).

Who is in it: Glenn Close, Patrick Stewart, John Malkovich, Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli.

What it is about: A retired movie star (Close) and a famous author (Stewart) are getting married, and her first husband (Malkovich) is attending the wedding — unless he keeps it from even happening.

The Florida Project

When it comes out: October 6 (limited).

Who is in it: Willem Dafoe, Bria Vinaite, Brooklyn Prince, Caleb Landry Jones, Macon Blair.

What it is about: In Orlando, near Walt Disney World, a group of children live in an extended stay motel called the Magic Castle, and the film follows their adventures over summer break. Prince is the precocious leader of the bunch, Vinaite plays her mother and Dafoe plays the owner of the motel in this latest feature by acclaimed filmmaker Sean Baker (Tangerine).

What people are saying about the movie:

“Further cements Baker’s status as one of the most innovative American directors working today.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire

“Baker’s talents are truly rare, [his] ability to siphon such authentic performances is truly a marvel.” – Gregory Ellwood, Collider

“One of Dafoe’s funniest and most moving performances.” – A.A. Dowd, A.V. Club
