A lot has been talked about Jessica’s recent projects, and the one who got me really excited to watch is “A Most Violent Year”, that is opening on December 31 (and expanding next). This new trailer looks really amazing! Led by Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain, they star as heads of an oil business that begin to clash with the criminal underworld of New York City.
A MOST VIOLENT YEAR is a searing crime drama set in New York City during the winter of 1981, statistically the most dangerous year in the city’s history. From acclaimed writer/director J.C. Chandor, and starring Oscar Isaac (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) and Jessica Chastain (ZERO DARK THIRTY), this gripping story plays out within a maze of rampant political and industry corruption plaguing the streets of a city in decay.
J.C. Chandor’s third feature examines one immigrant’s determined climb up a morally crooked ladder, where simmering rivalries and unprovoked attacks threaten his business, family, and – above all – his own unwavering belief in the righteousness of his path. With A MOST VIOLENT YEAR, Chandor journeys in a bold new direction, toward the place where best intentions yield to raw instinct, and where we are most vulnerable to compromise what we know to be right.

INDIEWIRE – A24 has released a new poster for J.C. Chandor’s highly anticipated “A Most Violent Year,” starring Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain.
Set in 1981, “A Most Violent Year” centers on a couple struggling to survive during what was one most violent years in the history of New York City.
The poster, which you can check out below, features a faded image of a couple, presumably Isaac and Chastain’s characters, looking at the New York City skyline from across the river. As if the faded color palette weren’t unsettling enough, the image is accompanied by a log line submerged in moral ambiguity.
“A Most Violent Year” is slated to premiere next week at AFI Fest on opening night. The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 31, 2014, with an expansion to follow suit in January 2015.
