Tom Hardy is all over the place this year. There’s so much of him to go around, in fact, that we’re actually getting two of him in one movie. Legend stars Hardy and Hardy again as Reginald and Ronald Kray, real-life twin gangsters who ruled London in the 1960s.
It’s the latest film from writer-director Brian Helgeland, who won an Oscar in 1998 for exploring similarly dark, stylish territory with the script for L.A. Confidential. Watch the first Legend trailer after he jump. Read More »

Here’s the first trailer for the tense Australian drama Strangerland which premiered at Sundance this year. Nicole Kidman plays a woman whose children disappear, leading her and her husband into a desperate search. Well, this is the first real domestic trailer; we saw another Strangerland trailer late last year that was quickly pulled. This one is better, so it works out for everyone.
Kim Farrant makes her directorial debut with the film, which also stars Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving. Check out the trailer after the jump. Read More »
Partisan marks the feature directing debut of Ariel Kleiman, who made the short films Young Love and Deeper than Yesterday, and this coming-of-age story looks like a compelling tale. The film, which won a Special Jury Award for cinematography at Sundance this year, follows a cult leader played by Vincent Cassel, and the group of abandoned women and children who make up his private little society.
Cassel’s character Gregori acts as surrogate father to the kids, but also trains them in more violent ways than most regular upbringings would offer. One child, Alexander (Jeremy Chabriel), is a promising student, but soon shows a problematic mind of his own. Check out the Partisan trailer, which introduces the basics of the story and characters.

What if the gingerbread house witch in the story of Hansel and Gretel was the kids’ actual grandmother? That concept looks like part of the inspiration for The Visit, the new film from writer/director M. Night Shyamalan. In the film, two siblings are sent off to visit their grandparents, and while the strictly-enforced 9:30pm bedtime seems weird right off the bat, the kids soon find that something is very definitely not right. There are late-night noises, strange behavior, and eventually some much weirder goings-on.
Check out The Visit trailer below. There’s even the beginning of a “kid in the oven” scene here, just to tie up the connection with the old Brothers Grimm tale. Read More »

Writer/director John Michael McDonagh is following up Cavalry with a new movie called War on Everyone, featuring Michael Peña and Alexander Skarsgård in the lead roles. They play “two corrupt cops in New Mexico who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path.” Now the first image is out for the film, and while McDonagh’s name should be enough to raise your interest, seeing Skarsgård flip us the bird in this War on Everyone image might help.
