The last time we heard anything about When Marnie Was There, the latest film from Studio Ghibli, was the announcement of the English-language voice cast. As is always the case with films from the Japanese studio, the US localization features a high-calibre cast and may just turn out an English dub that compares favorably with the original Japanese audio. Now there’s a When Marnie Was There US trailer that lets us hear some of that cast, including Hailee Steinfeld as Anna and Kiernan Shipka as Marnie. Read More »

Mad Max: Fury Road looks unique in part because it resembles action movies of years past more than it looks like a modern tentpole release. That’s in part thanks to the guiding hand of George Miller, who has directed all four entries in the Mad Max series, and has consistently worked with some of the most insane stunt people around. The first three Mad Max movies were made when digital effects weren’t an option, but Fury Road, the fourth film, looks like it was made with the same attention to physical mayhem. Warner Bros. has created a new trailer that assembles footage from all the films in the series — not to recap that overall story, but to suggest that this new film fits right in line with the previous three.
Check out the great Mad Max legacy trailer below. Read More »

With every new bit of casting, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast sounds more delightful. And we aren’t the only ones who think so — the actors seem pretty satisfied with their new colleagues, too.
As Bthe live-action fairy tale prepares to shoot in London, stars Ian McKellen and Josh Gad have offered a tiny glimpse into the process. Based on their reports, working with the likes of Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, and Kevin Kline is exactly as cool as you think it’d be. Check out the Josh Gad and Ian McKellen Beauty and the Beast updates after the jump. Read More »
Results came out of Sundance this year, and shows director Andrew Bujalski (Funny Ha Ha, Mutual Appreciation) moving into more polished comedy than the very low-key films that originally made his name. This one stars Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, and Kevin Corrigan as an unlikely trio who are united by Corrigan’s neediness and depression after a divorce. And that sounds pretty heavy, but this first Results trailer makes the story look bitterly funny, with a particularly good turn from Smulders. Read More »

It’s easy to take for granted the right to vote when you don’t remember ever not having it. In truth, women won that right less than a century ago in the U.S. and the U.K. And though the victory feels inevitable in retrospect, it was a painful struggle at the time.
In the first Suffragette trailer, Carey Mulligan plays a foot soldier of the movement — a young wife and mother who’s decided to fight for herself and women like her. Meryl Streep plays Emmeline Pankhurst, a legendary activist. Watch the first Suffragette trailer after the jump. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The story of Brian Wilson and his work with the Beach Boys has been elevated to American musical mythology. The songs by Wilson and his brothers and bandmates had a dramatic and sunny effect on pop music just as Wilson’s own life was fraught with instability. Love and Mercy dramatizes his story, not for the first time, but in perhaps the most complete way to date — by splitting him in two. In the Love and Mercy trailer you’ll see John Cusack as Brian Wilson… and Paul Dano as Brian Wilson, with Cusack playing the troubled songwriter in later years, and Dano playing him at his peak.

A new Jurassic World trailer is likely right around the corner, but before that happens, a few new images have gone online. Most of them are stills from the film featuring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and others. Those are interesting but the coolest bit is a possible leaked teaser poster that features the Mosasaurus, the aquatic dinosaur we’ve seen in the trailers, trailing a shark in the water. And it’s kind of terrifying. It doesn’t say anything about the movie really, but it’s an incredibly striking image. Check out the Jurassic World poster, along with some new images, below. Read More »
The film Aloft, from director Claudia Llosa, is a multi-generational drama that features Cillian Murphy and Mélanie Laurent as a duo in search of a woman played by Jennifer Connelly. But it’s a bit more complicated than that, as Connelly plays Nana Kunning, who as a young woman unsuccessfully attempted to aid the healing of her son Ivan. Now grown, Ivan (Murphy) pairs with a journalist (Laurent) to find his mother. Even the basics of the story sound heavy and somewhat unusual, and you’ll see that reflected in the Aloft trailer, too.

Al Pacino plays a sort of recluse for David Gordon Green in Manglehorn, and the first trailer is here. Pacino plays a guy struggling with his past and the woman that got away, even as he avoids truly dealing with the aspects of his life that are right in front of him. The cast also features Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine (who will feature Pacino in his own next film), and Chris Messina. Check out the first Manglehorn trailer below. Read More »
