Tulip Fever trailer

It was almost a year ago the first trailer came out for Tulip Fever. Director Justin Chadwick‘s (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) period drama was originally scheduled to come out last July, but The Weinstein Company pushed the release date back twice. Days before it was set to open in February, the distributor again postponed its release.

About three years after the drama, which stars Alicia VikanderChristoph Waltz, and Dane DeHaan, was shot, it’s finally coming out in August. Below, watch the Tulip Fever trailer.

Ewan McGregor Christopher Robin

As Disney continues its reign of box office domination, one of the most effective tools in the studio’s arsenal has been the live-action adaptation of a classic animated property. Beauty and the Beast is the latest example, pulling in over a billion dollars worldwide (and counting), but there are plenty more where that came from.

One of the many in development is Christopher Robin, a live-action Winnie the Pooh sequel that follows an adult version of Pooh’s best friend. A new report states that Beauty and the Beast star Ewan McGregor is set to play the title character…does that bode well for a Star Wars spinoff centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi? Read on for the Ewan McGregor Christopher Robin news.

The Social Network

If you’re looking for a film that accurately depicts the creation of Facebook, it’s not The Social Network. But if you’re looking for a sharply written drama that defines the generation who is living on the internet, then David Fincher‘s drama scripted by Aaron Sorkin is just the ticket.

Still, just because The Social Network was nominated for Best Picture does not make it safe from the folks at Screen Junkies, who decided to mock the film in an Honest Trailer in honor of this week’s release of The Circle starring Tom Hanks. You also might be surprised to learn how many laptops were broken in the scene where Andrew Garfield smashes Jesse Eisenberg‘s computer.

The Exception Jai Courtney

Maybe if I’d seen the Starz show Spartacus: War of the Damned, I’d be on board the Jai Courtney train. But aside from a halfway decent performance in the first Jack Reacher movie and the weirdness of his Captain Boomerang in Suicide Squad, I haven’t seen much from the guy that warrants his level of stardom.

But maybe he’s better in smaller films than blockbusters. Let’s test that theory by taking a look at the trailer for a new World War II thriller called The Exception, which stars Courtney as a Nazi soldier who falls in love with a Jewish girl played by Baby Driver’s Lily James. Watch The Exception trailer below.

better call saul sunk costs review 3

(Every week, we’re going to kick off discussion about Better Call Saul season 3 by answering one simple question: who came out on top when the credits rolled?)

The title of this week’s Better Call Saul, “Sunk Costs,” refers to a cost that’s been paid and can’t be recovered, i.e. it refers to irreparable damage. A lot has happened over the course of the last two seasons, but the ground lost has always seemed like it could be regained. But something’s snapped, now. We’ve past the point of no return on the path from Jimmy to Saul, and the pall it casts over the show is palpable, not to mention painful.

Hell or High Water pic

David Mackenzie’s sweaty western heist film Hell or High Water was ripped straight from the headlines last year, depicting the aftermath of the mortgage crisis as a Robin Hood-style revenge thriller. It resonated with audiences and critics alike, earning four Oscar nods and catapulting Mackenzie to a higher level of recognition.

For his follow-up film, Mackenzie is looking to reteam with stars Chris Pine and Ben Foster for Outlaw King, an “epic period drama” about Robert the Bruce. And yes, before we go any further, Pine is in talks to play the Scottish king. Take a second to let that sink in.

Churchill Trailer - Brian Cox

Hollywood loves history, but it can be a real challenge to bring a real life event to the big screen, especially when it involves people that some of the public lived through and experienced through the radio and television. Churchill will attempt to chronicle the struggle of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) as he deals with the impending start of D-Day during World War II in 1944. It looks like it could be a typical awards contender, but that might be difficult since the movie hits theaters this summer.

Scorsese De Niro DiCaprio The Audition

If Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, or Robert De Niro become involved with a new movie, cinephiles perk up. Well, maybe not as much for De Niro in the past few years, but with The Wizard of Lies on the way, maybe that’ll change. When all three of those guys are mentioned as possible collaborators on the same project? That could be cause for a full-on celebration.

The film in question is a new thriller called Killers of the Flower Moon, and all three men are reportedly interested in coming on board. Read on to learn everything we know so far.
