OSCAR HOPEFUL TRAILERS
David Poland and Movie City News have posted a series of 17 trailers for films that he/they have deemed as Oscar possibles. The trailers include a number of possible Telluride films: "Carol", "Black Mass", "In the Heart of the Sea", "The Program", "Sicario", "Youth" and "Suffragette".
Take a look at the post, which is expected to be updated as we move through the summer and into awards season with trailers from other films:
"STEVE JOBS" FULL TRAILER
The full trailer for Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" dropped yesterday to a good deal of fanfare in the media. The film stars Michael Fassbender as Jobs along with Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet and Jeff Daniels. We had already seen a teaser for the film but this is a full two and a half minute trailer.

Additionally, I have linked a bunch of the coverage that accompanied the trailer's release yesterday:
Does "Steve Jobs" play Telluride? That's a maybe. It likely depends on how much sway Danny Boyle has and if he wishes to return. I'd expect that Boyle would prefer to come back to Telluride as he has had so much success with "Slumdog Millionaire" in 2008 and "127 Hours" in 2010.
THE GUARDIAN UPS its GAME AND SPONSORS TOO
British publication The Guardian has a new reporter and anew emphasis on American film with their hiring of Nigel Smith. The story from The Guardian yesterday also revealed that it would be involved in the Telluride Film Festival in a "premiere partnership" capacity.
In concrete terms, The Guardian will be sponsoring Telluride's Noon Sessions and the Labor Day picnic. The complete story is here:
REMINDERS: The second edition of 2015's Telluride "Ten Bets" from MTFB is coming tomorrow. Also, don't forget, MTFB begins its annual July look at distributors, producers and "usual suspects" for clues as to what may play at TFF #42 ON MONDAY!
That's it for Thursday...come back tomorrow for more...
