When you’re single and lonely, it can feel like the whole world is full of smug couples judging you for your solo status. In Yorgos Lanthimos‘ The Lobster, they literally are. Singlehood is a crime in this society, and those caught committing it are given 45 days to find a mate, or else be turned into an animal of their choosing.
It’s an absurd premise, but we’d expect no less from the director of Dogtooth. In this strange dystopia, David (Colin Farrell) meets and falls for a woman from another community, where coupledom is strictly forbidden. Watch The Lobster trailer after the jump. Read More »

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Tom Hooper‘s The Danish Girl, starring Redmayne as transgender pioneer Lili Elbe. Alicia Vikander plays Elbe’s wife Gerda Wegener.

Romantic comedies usually don’t impress me. They’re just not my cup of tea unless I really like the on-screen talent involved. More often than not it’s the indie romantic comedies that bring something fresh enough to shake up the subgenre to make it entertaining and sincere, and that’s exactly what happens with Sleeping with Other People.
The Sundance selected movie from Bachelorette writer and director Leslye Headland features Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis as two two sex addicts unable to commit to real relationships who decide to hold each other accountable for their destructive behavior and strike up quite the strong bond. So strong that they begin to act like a couple, even though they’re not, and you know what that means
This is an R-rated romantic comedy so the new Sleeping with Other People red band trailer is the best way to get the right vibe from this hilarious, authentic romance. Watch the new trailer below! Read More »
One of my favorite films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival was the raunchy romantic comedy Sleeping with Other People, starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. Thankfully, IFC Films picked up the indie from the festival, and you’ll be able to see it in theaters in just a few weeks.
In the meantime, a new international trailer for the film has just surfaced, and be prepared to watch it somewhere privately, because even though it’s not an official red band trailer, it’s still a little NSFW, due to some pretty risque conversation topics. The major culprit is Sudeikis explaining to Brie how to touch herself in a very intimate way.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Richard Linklater has already completed his follow-up to Boyhood — when your last feature took over a decade to make, pretty much any other turnaround seems quick. The movie has been called That’s What I’m Talking About, and also referred to as Everybody Wants Some, but the current status pegs it as Untitled Richard Linklater movie.
What we do know about the film is that it follows a young man as he arrives at college, and now the film has an April 2016 release date. In addition, Linklater is the top choice to direct The Rosie Project, which Sony has set up with Jennifer Lawrence set to star. Read More »
Chris Evans put down his shield for a while in December 2013 to direct his first feature, and you can now see the results of his efforts via the Before We Go trailer. The film stars Evans and Alice Eve as a pair of people who come together in Manhattan when Eve’s character deals with the theft of her purse, and nice guy Chris Evans comes gently to the rescue.
You might wonder if romance blossoms between the two, and given that the stars are Eve and Evans, you probably don’t even need to watch the trailer to figure that out. If you’re eager to see what Evans does when he’s not suited up as Captain America, check out the Before We Go trailer below. Read More »

You can take the man out of the James Bond franchise, but you can’t take the James Bond franchise out of the man. Or so it seems based on the Some Kind of Beautiful trailer, which stars Pierce Brosnan as a notorious British womanizer. Sound familiar?
But while 007’s adventures usually revolved around assassins, femmes fatale, and megalomaniacs, the issues here are more mundane — marriage, a kid, an awkward love triangle. (Of course, given that said love triangle involves Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba, you could argue his problems are just as exciting.) Watch the Some Kind of Beautiful trailer after the jump.

Making its way to theaters this summer after a premiere at the 2015 Sundance film Festival is the indie, coming of age tale Brooklyn starring The Lovely Bones, Hanna and The Grand Budapest Hotel star Saorise Ronan.
Set in 1950s New York City, the film follows a young Irish immigrant girl, fresh off the boat and hoping for the opportunity that America is known for across the world. Life isn’t easy at first, but then a budding romance enters the picture and everything changes. And if the trailer is any indicator, this one should be a touching charmer.
