La La Land trailer

We’re guessing a large number of you have been in the bag for La La Land since the moment it was announced, based solely on the talent and premise. It’s an old-fashioned musical romance (albeit one set in the modern day) from Whiplash wunderkind Damien Chazelle, starring two of the most appealing actors working today, Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. What’s not to like, right?

So for those of you, this La La Land trailer probably isn’t so much a chance for you to make up your mind about whether you want to see this thing, as it is an opportunity for you to get excited all over again. And the good news is that it still looks great. Watch the La La Land trailer below. Read More »

Penny Dreadful sequel comic

The Penny Dreadful series finale is a bit of a disappointment. Not because fans didn’t know the season three finale was actually the series finale until the end credits, but because the show rushes a little towards the finish line. A few storylines and subplots, like which side Ethan Chandler chooses, feel incomplete. The final moments of the series are emotional, but are they earned? Yes, for the most part, but the ending of John Logan‘s beautiful show still leaves you wanting more. Thankfully, for those of us fans who want to spend more time in this world, we’ll have the opportunity to do so with the Penny Dreadful sequel comic coming from Titan Comic Books.

rules don't apply trailer

It’s been 15 years since Warren Beatty has acted in a movie and 18 years since he stepped behind the camera, so the return of the Hollywood legend as both actor and director in Rules Don’t Apply should be enough to pique the curiosity of anyone with a sense of film history. But if a 79-year-old living legend isn’t enough, this film also features delightful young actors like Alden Ehrenreich and Lily Collins, a supporting cast stacked with some of your favorite actors, and a new trailer that makes Beatty’s return to the silver screen look like a charming, frothy, and likable time at the movies.

13 Going On 30 Musical

Since the 1980s comedy favorite Big starring Tom Hanks (who just hosted a great episode of Saturday Night Live) has already been turned into a musical, it only makes sense that the female-centric successor 13 Going On 30 gets the same treatment.

Jake Scott short film

Sir Ridley Scott has quite the talented family. His three children have all directed feature films. The last feature Scott’s eldest son, Jake Scott, directed was Welcome to the Rileys, a compelling drama with memorable performances. The director made his feature filmmaking debut with the little-known Plunkett & Macleane, which, even in Jake Scott’s eyes, is a very rough around the edges first movie. He’s also directed some excellent music videos and short films throughout his career, including a new eight-minute short starring Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal) as an assassin.

Operator Trailer - Martin Starr and Mae Whitman

After Her explored how artificial intelligence may become a new outlet for humans to find love, a new film that played at SXSW earlier this year feels like a kindred spirit. It’s one that’s a little more grounded in reality, but still uses technology as the catalyst for romantic confusion.

Operator follows Martin Starr as a software developer whose team is tasked with creating a new voice for a Siri-like program on a smartphone. After getting a nice, calm chat from his wife (Mae Whitman), he decides that she would make the perfect new voice. But then he starts preferring the company of her presence on the phone instead of her in real life.

rules don't apply trailer

Rules Don’t Apply brings Warren Beatty back to us.

THE SPACE BETWEEN US trailer

Asa Butterfield plays a Martian in The Space Between Us, but not the kind with slimy green skin and giant jet-black eyes. He’s a human, just one that happens to have been born on Mars. His mother was an astronaut, you see, and didn’t realize she was even pregnant until after she’d already set out as part of a mission to colonize the red planet. So Gardner becomes the first baby born there, and grows up in a tiny settlement consisting of just 15 people.

Gardner does have one lifeline to Earth, though — an online friend named Tulsa (Britt Robertson), who lives in Colorado. He sets out to visit her on Earth, and enlists her in a quest to learn more about where he came from. It’s part The Martian and part John Green, and if you’re in the mood for an earnest coming-of-age romance with a bit of sci-fi flair, it just might hit the spot.
