Jake Gyllenhaal has had a really excellent run over these past few years, culminating in a career-best performance with Nightcrawler. But it’s not over. He seems poised to continue his winning streak with Southpaw, if the first trailer is any indication.
Directed by Antoine Fuqua and written by Kurt Sutter, Southpaw stars Gyllenhaal as a boxer who’s lost everything — up to and including his daughter, who’s been taken away by Child Services. He begins the painful process of putting his life back together the only way he knows how, by re-entering the ring.
Rachel McAdams plays his beautiful wife, Forest Whitaker his strict coach, and Oona Laurence his cute kid. Check out the Southpaw trailer after the jump. Read More »

The Weinstein Company have released the trailer for their international thriller No Escape. No, this isn’t the big screen adaptation of Dan Trachtenberg’s Portal: No Escape you’ve been hoping for… The story follows Owen Wilson‘s family who move to Southeast Asia to suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, and must escape as rebels attack the city. The story sounds like a grounded character thriller but the trailer focuses on big moments of action you might not expect from that logline. The film is from Quarantine/Devil director John Erick Dowdle, and co-stars Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell. Watch the No Escape trailer now embedded after the jump.

Marta Etura, Lluís Homar and Alberto Ammann also star; check out the footage below. Read More »
Michael Myers never stays dead for too long, and now he’s returning to the big screen. Dimension films has revived efforts to make a new Halloween film. The first step in the process is to hire Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who together wrote several Saw movies (specifically the latter four films), to write the script for the new film. But what is this Halloween going to be? Reportedly, it will be a “recalibration,” which seems like a single-word replacement for “we’re not sure yet.” Read More »

Paddington is a PG-rated family film about a talking bear who moves from the jungles of Peru to London. That premise, based on a popular series of children’s book by Michael Bond, is obviously silly. Yet writer director Paul King‘s adaptation is so on the money, so well-done, so deceptively simple, heartfelt and flat-out entertaining, it make movies with far more plausible plots seem silly by comparison.
Below read the rest of our Paddington movie review, which talks about what the movie does right that others should take note of. Read More »
