In Son of a Gun Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites are prisoners in a West Australian prison, where McGregor offers the younger Thwaites protection inside in exchange for help breaking out, which leads to the two pulling a big job outside. Once out of prison, there’s a gold heist, and a sense that betrayal is only a moment away, and the allure of the enigmatic and possibly criminally seasoned woman played by Alicia Vikander. Check out the Son of a Gun trailer after the break. Read More »

It’s been four year since we first reported on Seventh Son (then called The Last Apprentice), three years since the film went into production, and two years since its originally scheduled release date. But the movie somehow still hasn’t hit theaters, so today we have a new Seventh Son trailer to share with you.
Jeff Bridges leads the production as Master Gregory, the last member of a mystical order. He takes a prophesied hero named Tom Ward (Ben Barnes) under his wing, and together they two battle an evil witch queen (Julianne Moore) from unleashing hell. Hit the jump to watch the new Seventh Son trailer.

Kit Harington and Alicia Vikander star in Testament of Youth as friends, and potential lovers, who are separated by the insanity of the First World War. Based on the memoir by Vera Brittain, considered one of the primary accounts of the war from a woman’s perspective, the film follows the dawning independence of Brittain (Vikander), and the relationship she forges with her brother’s friend, played by Harington. In this Testament of Youth UK trailer we’re treated to some glowing pullquotes, but also to many visions of England and Europe during the years before and during the war. This is a much more effective look at the film than the last trailer we saw; have a look below. Read More »

As a writer, Alex Garland has been behind some of our favorite sci-fi films of the past several years including Sunshine, Never Let Me Go, and Dredd. But it’s only now, with Ex Machina, that he’s trying to make one as a director.
He’s already got a great cast assembled for the project, including Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, and Alicia Vikander. Now a trippy new image of Vikander as a half-formed android has arrived to give us a better idea of what exactly Garland has in mind. Get an eyeful at new Ex Machina images after the jump.

Since making the transition to English-language films, Alicia Vikander has been building a solid CV, or at least one dotted with big films. There’s The Fifth Estate, Anna Karenina, and forthcoming films The Man From UNCLE, Seventh Son, and Derek Cianfrance’s Light Between Oceans, just to name a few.
More specifically, she’s got the WWI drama Testament of Youth, which shot this past spring with James Kent directing and co-stars Kit Harington, Taron Egerton, Colin Morgan, Dominic West, Emily Watson, Hayley Atwell, and Anna Chancellor. Here’s the first Testament of Youth trailer, introducing a young woman who chronicled her experience as a WWI nurse in an emotional memoir. Read More »
