I Feel Pretty Trailer

Comedian Amy Schumer made a huge splash on the big screen with Trainwreck back in 2015, and now she’s back with another comedy that might make some waves this summer.

I Feel Pretty follows Amy Schumer as an average woman who deals with some low self-esteem and insecurity in her everyday life. Whether it’s because of her figure or her hair, she just doesn’t have enough confidence in herself and feels inadequate day in and day out. But as we see in the I Feel Pretty trailer, that suddenly changes when a Soul Cycle accident leaves her looking at herself in a new light. Suddenly, she believes she is a knockout supermodel who can do anything, and it’s a total gamechanger for her. Read More »

Disobedience Trailer

Rachel McAdams once put aside her love for Ryan Gosling in the sappy romance The Notebook for fear of upsetting her parents. Rachel Weisz also once partook in a secret relationship with Colin Farrell in The Lobster. Now, the two actresses face another forbidden love, but this time the relationship is condemned by the religion they were raised with.

Disobedience follows Rachel Weisz as Ronit, the black sheep of an Orthodox Jewish family living in London. She’s been spending her years in New York as a photographer, in stark contrast to the life she was meant to lead with her family. After her father (a revered rabbi in the community) dies, she returns home only to find her past waiting for her in a way that will stir up controversy in her family all over again. Read More »

Submergence Trailer

Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy are both part of blockbuster franchises. While Vikander has Tomb Raider coming up, she also appeared in Jason Bourne not too long ago. Meanwhile, McAvoy will play Professor X for the fourth time in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix and he’s also reprising his role as The Horde in Glass, a sequel to both Split and Unbreakable. But the two took time out of their schedule to make a more quiet, subdued film from director Wim Wenders.

Submergence follows Danielle Flinders (Vikander) and James More (McAvoy) as they meet in a Normandy hotel, falling for each other romantically before they go off on two very different missions. The distance between them will be great (there’s a literal ocean between them), but their love may be enough to keep them going. Read More »

When We First Met Trailer

Plenty of movies take a cue from Groundhog Day and feature a character who gets stuck in some kind of inexplicable time loop. Edge of Tomorrow, Source Code, Run Lola Run, and most recently Happy Death Day have all used the time loop formula to tell a story, and now it’s time for a new romantic comedy to give it a shot.

Netflix has announced a new movie called When We First Met, which finds Adam Devine (Workaholics, Pitch Perfect) as a guy named Noah who stumbles upon a photo booth time machine that allows him to go back in time in an effort to win over the heart of his best friend Avery (Alexandra Daddario), who is getting married to someone else. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

love simon trailer

Teen romance movies are a dime a dozen, but Love, Simon has the benefit of being a major teen romance film revolving around a gay character. Sure, plenty of indie films and prestige flicks have explored the heartache of young gay love or the excruciating fear of coming out, but have any of them done it to an upbeat pop soundtrack? Not many.

Yes, the movie looks cheesy as hell, and yes the stars are as generically attractive as the ones you’ll find in any schlocky teen romance film — star Nick Robinson did first stretch his teen romance acting chops in 2017’s tearjerker Everything, Everything — but it’s still gives the spotlight to a gay lead in a major motion picture. And that’s huge.
