Pre-Production, Nicole Kidman

Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert will finally make its way to North America in 2017 and (naturally) there’s a new trailer trumpeting the historical drama’s arrival. The film, released in Germany way back yonder in the simpler days of 2015, features Nicole Kidman as British traveler/writer/archaeologist/spy/explorer/political officer Gertrude Bell. Here’s the bluffer’s guide to what the motion picture offers: Gertrude Bell (Kidman) chafes against the stifling rigidity of life in turn-of-the-century England, leaving it behind for a chance to travel to Tehran.

"We can't fix them, we can only fix ourselves." Starz Digital Media has debuted a trailer for the indie drama The Family Fang, directed by actor Jason Bateman, who also stars in the film which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. Nicole Kidman also stars with Bateman as brother & sister who go home looking for their prankster parents, played by Christopher Walken & Maryann Plunkett. The cast includes Marin Ireland, Josh Pais, Michael Chernus and others.

TIFF Review: Jason Bateman's 'The Family Fang' Starring Bateman, Nicole Kidman & Christopher Walken Jason Bateman is getting better and better at directing. Working with an adaption of Kevin Wilson's novel, by screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire ("Rabbit Hole”), this is his second movie behind the camera.  He rounds up a great ensemble of actors (himself included) to deliver a funny, sensitive, and layered piece of work. It's an original story about the thin, squiggly, line between art and life, comfortably swaying between comedy and drama. To call "The Family Fang" an improvement on Bateman’s debut "Bad Words", would be an understatement.

"It is something that you in your world would never understand…" Atlas Distribution has debuted a new US trailer for Werner Herzog's Queen of the Desert, starring Nicole Kidman as the legendary Gertrude Bell, who was an important figure in Middle East relations in the early 1900s. This isn't the first trailer we've featured, however the other trailer was an international version, this new one has a much more epic, Lawrence of Arabia-esque feel. Which is what they're really selling it like, with Robert Pattinson playing T.E.

The first, long-awaited trailer for Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert opens sort of like a more gentle Mad Max: Fury Road, with Nicole Kidman explaining that her world is “life and fire.” It’s the true story of Gertrude Bell, a woman so suffocated by civil life that she strikes out into the desert of Tehran in the 1920s, where she becomes integral in shaping the politics of the Middle East.

After that lost long weekend of lucid dreams and crumbling sanity spent rewatching half his catalogue for our Werner Herzog Retrospective I might have made some pronouncement like: Werner Herzog may have made a few bad films, but he has never made an uninteresting one. He comes damn close, however, with "Queen of the Desert," which does not deserve the outright trashing that can be felt brewing in the Berlinale air, but also can't be classed as anything other than a disappointment.

Berlin Film Festival Adds Werner Herzog’s QUEEN OF THE DESERT Starring Robert Pattinson and Nicole Kidman The Berlin International Film Festival already has quite the lineup, but the list continues to grow.  Another batch of official selections was just announced and while there are loads of promising projects in the mix, the standout is Werner Herzog’s Queen of the Desert.  The Gertrude Bell biopic was in development for years before finally going into production in late 2013.  Nicole Kidman leads as Bell, an “explorer, writer, archaeologist and attaché for the British Empire who is credited with helping to catalyze the formation of the Middle East at the dawn of the 20th century.” Hit the jum
