A dozen years after his last outing as Bond, Pierce Brosnan is getting back into the spy game in The November Man. He even has a former Bond Girl accompanying him, Quantum of Solace‘s Olga Kurylenko.

But the first trailer for the Roger Donaldson-directed thriller feels a bit more melancholy than your average 007 adventure. There are lots of shots of men coolly walking away from big explosions, sure, but there’s also a sad little speech about how “love has no place in this life.” Watch the November Man trailer and see some images after the jump.

The Best of Me

Death is a staple of Nicholas Sparks romances, and that’s as true as ever in his latest movie adaptation The Best of Me. This time, the Grim Reaper conveniently provides an excuse to bring two high school sweethearts back together.

Rich girl Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and wrong-side-of-the-tracks boy Dawson (James Marsden) haven’t seen each other in twenty years when they reunite at the funeral of a mutual friend. Sparks fly, but lots of obstacles stand in their way because there would be no movie otherwise. Hit the jump to watch the first The Best of Me trailer.

Oculus

These days it feels like every horror movie can be easily categorized. Either it’s a possession movie, a found footage movie, a slasher movie or some inane combination. Finding something different is rare. Mike Flanagan‘s Oculus, at the very least, strives to be different. Combining elements from several subgenre columns into something that feels new and fresh, Oculus is the story of a brother and sister who try to destroy a haunted mirror that drives people to wild hallucinations, blurring lines between what’s real and what’s not.

Flanagan’s script is a psychological jumping bean as it hops wildly between multiple timelines, putting the audiences in the shoes of the characters, everyone totally unaware of precisely what’s going on. The whole thing has a fluid feeling that’s not exactly innovative, but exciting enough to potentially kick off a new franchise. Read more of our Oculus movie review below. Read More »

Brick Mansions trailer

This second Brick Mansions trailer, for the the Banlieue 13 remake that is also one of the late Paul Walker’s final films, relies on a moody cover of ‘Stand by Me’ to give it a little oomph. Not that the trailer really needs it, as the action (also featuring RZA and original B13 star and parkour pioneer David Belle) looks to be pretty hard-hitting and high-flying.

Luc Besson, who produced the original, scripted this remake, which opens in April. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

‘Oculus’ Trailer: The Mirror That Kills

OCULUS

You’d think a character convinced that a mirror had somehow killed her parents would spend the rest of her life avoiding all mirrors at all costs. But in the new Oculus trailer, Kaylie (Karen Gillan) does just the opposite, going out of her way to track the item down.

She claims it’s all in an effort to clear the name of her brother Tim (Brenton Thwaites), but the way she strokes and coos at it suggests she has a sick fascination that goes beyond any responsibility to her sibling. And as Oculus is a horror movie, it’s not long before her attempt to right some wrongs starts to go horrifyingly awry. Watch the video after the jump.

‘Earth to Echo’ Pushed From Spring to Summer 2014

Earth to Echo

Briefly: Another found-footage genre picture has been delayed, and this time it seems to be for a pretty good reason. Relativity is pushing the Amblin-esque Earth to Echo from a spring release into July of this year. That indicates that Relativity has confidence in the film’s ability to draw an audience in competition with films that will likely have far more marketing muscle behind them. The film now lands a week after Transformers: Age of Extinction, and a week before Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
