Their Finest Trailer

Hollywood loves making movies about making movies, and even though Lone Scherfig‘s World War II romantic dramedy Their Finest actually hails from across the pond, it’s still looking for that sweet spot of nostalgia for classic filmmaking crossed with the hardships of war.

After playing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and the Sundance Film Festival just last month, Their Finest follows the making of a movie about the heroic events of a couple sisters at Dunkirk who save hundreds of soldiers. Sadly, it’s not anywhere near as compelling as we hope Christopher Nolan’s movie about Dunkirk will be, but Their Finest is coming to US theaters this spring, delivering lighthearted laughs, sappy romance, and stilted war drama. Watch the new Their Finest trailer after the jump to get a taste of the film. Read More »

the discovery trailer

The first trailer for The Discovery, which arrived shortly before the film’s world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last month, was all about unnerving imagery and unsettling questions without answers. The new trailer slows down just enough to explain what the movie is actually about…which only means more unnerving imagery and even more unsettling questions. The film has a great hook: what if scientists discovered that the afterlife is real, leading millions of people to commit suicide to get there faster? What would the world look like? This new preview offers a few hints.

the irishman netflix

Welcome to 2017, where Martin Scorsese‘s long-awaited The Irishman, which will reunite him with Robert De Niro for the first time since 1995, is heading straight to Netflix. Think about reading that sentence ten years ago and then realize how much the movie world has fundamentally changed…and how debuting on a streaming service no longer carries the low-rent reputation associated with direct-to-video movies. Netflix has made it clear in the past that they’d very much like to be in the business of making prestige pictures and this feels like them doubling down on that mission.

Woody Allen's next movie

Another period piece is coming our way from writer-director Woody Allen. We know little about his latest movie, titled Wonder Wheel, which is typical of Allen’s movies. Rarely are character and plot details shared early on. But we do know his latest film stars Justin Timberlake, Kate Winslet, and Juno Temple and it takes place in the 1950s.

Below, check out the first photo from Woody Allen’s next movie.

La La Land Rehearsal

Even though La La Land has been sweeping up during awards season (with plenty more victories to come at the Academy Awards this coming weekend), there has been some backlash surrounding the modern romance with classical musical style. One of the lingering criticisms about the film has been the fact that despite turning in fantastic performances, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone don’t sing and dance like true musical professionals. Frankly, I think that’s intentional, but that doesn’t mean director Damien Chazelle took the musical elements of his film lightly by any means.

A new La La Land rehearsal video has surfaced that was shot on Damien Chazelle’s iPhone. The video in question shows the extensive rehearsal process that was employed in order to plan the opening Los Angeles freewayway song and dance number. The cast and crew took over a scaled down parking lot in order to plan all the blocking with cars and performers, and you can see how it compares with the final scene below. Read More »

brain on fire trailer

After making November Criminals and an adaptation of Susannah Cahalan‘s memoir, Brain on Fire, back-to-back, actress Chloë Grace Moretz dropped out of all future projects. The actor wanted to slow down and reassess her choices. We’ve seen her in quite a few roles over the last few years, but right now she only has a handful of movies coming up, such as the Suspiria remake and writer-director Gerard Barrett‘s Brain on Fire, which co-stars Tyler Perry, Jenny SlateRichard Armitage, and Carrie-Anne Moss.

Below, watch the Brain on Fire trailer.
