can you ever forgive me trailer

Melissa McCarthy rocketed to fame as the crass and loud-mouthed Megan in 2011’s Bridesmaids, and since then, the actress has perfected her brand of broad comedy to the tune of an $18 million paycheck in 2017. She was the fourth highest-paid actress last year according to Forbes. So why change up the formula?

For the art and possibly, the Oscar. McCarthy makes her foray into serious dramatic acting with Can You Ever Forgive Me?, an biographical comedy-drama about Lee Israel, a former author who ran a notorious literary forging scheme. And it may be early to call an Oscar buzz, but McCarthy gives an impressive and surprising performance in the first Can You Ever Forgive Me trailer

Isle of Dogs Cast Interviews

There are plenty of featurettes released every week that have talking heads from directors, actors, producers and other crew members to help explain to audiences what’s so special about the movie they’re working on. Every now and then, one comes along that does something a little different, and this time it’s director Wes Anderson and his stop-motion animated adventure Isle of Dogs.

Instead of talking to the voice actors behind the dogs with a cardboard cutout of the poster behind them, Wes Anderson had Bryan Cranston, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Liev Schriber, F. Murray Abraham, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Bob Balaban, and Tilda Swinton interviewed about the movie, and then created animation as if their canine characters were doing the Isle of Dogs cast interviews themselves.

The Shape of Water Guillermo del Toro cameo

Directors have been making cameos in their own movies since the early days of cinema, so it’s appropriate that The Shape of Water – which is at least partially a throwback to classic Hollywood – would include a cameo from its own filmmaker as well. It also seems appropriate that an iconoclast director like Guillermo del Toro wouldn’t have a traditional cameo in his movie; even if you were straining your eyes to look for him, you’d never see del Toro’s face on screen during the entire run time. That’s because he appears in a more unconventional cameo, aiding actor Doug Jones in bringing his exotic fish-man creature to life.
