Whiplash brings thunderous new trailer!

An intense and confident  trailer for Whiplash is causing us all to really sit up and take notice.

I’ll admit, until yesterday this upcoming film had slipped under my radar. I don’t quite know how it had as it stars J.K Simmons alongside Miles Teller, and looks to be like it’s something that would interest me. The story appears to be very simple with the tale of young man who is furiously training in order to become an excellent jazz drummer. Now stories about the pressure place on musicians are fairly rare to come by, certainly good ones are hard to find, and this one looks like it could be very good indeed.

Whiplash is an adaptation of a short film that director and writer Damien Chazelle made a little while back. Since then he has gone on to be one of the screenwriters on The Last Exorcism Part II which… is less than encouraging, but he also wrote Grand Piano which was that unusual film last year which was basically Phone Booth but with a piano and Elijah Wood. That one may not have been flawless, but it certainly was intriguing and experimental enough that I have faith in Chazelle to produce something interesting here with Whiplash.

Right, for now I’ll leave you with the latest trailer. Let me know whether you’ll be checking this one out by writing in the comment box below!

        1. Good good, that’s what I like to hear!

          1. I’m glad you’re back!

          2. I finally have time to post every day now, I love it!

  2. I’ve only seen Miles Teller in Divergent and he was quite memorable. This sounds like a much more meaty role for him tho, might have to rent it later.

    1. Yeah I have my fingers crossed that the script gives him the chance to really dig into the role somewhat!

  3. I’ve seen this described as “Black Swan” with guys and I can definitely see that. Cannot wait to watch this. looks fucking amazing.

    1. That is exactly the right way to sell this thing to me! I can’t wait to see it!
