Bradley Cooper has already been nominated for an Oscar four times, and The Weinstein Company is probably hoping that he can get another nomination as a struggling chef desperately trying to make a comeback in a big way.
Burnt sees Cooper play Adam Jones, a former star chef who landed two coveted Michelin stars, and as one of the characters in the new Burnt trailer says, you have to be like Luke Skywalker in order to get just one of them. But what if he’s more like the Darth Vader of chefs? Either way, Jones now wants his third Michelin star, and he’s pulling out all the stops to make it happen. Read More »

It’s really a shame that Man of Steel didn’t give Henry Cavill much room to show off his charm, because as the new trailer for Guy Ritchie‘s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. shows, he’s got it in spades. The big-screen remake of the ’60s series stars Cavill as CIA agent Napoleon Solo, who’s forced to team with KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to, I don’t know, save the world or something.
The specifics of the plot aren’t important. The key thing is that it offers Cavill and Hammer an excuse to engage in snarky banter, wear sharp suits, drive cool cars, and blow up shiny things. Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, and Hugh Grant also star. Watch the new The Man From UNCLE trailer, and check out a new poster, after the jump.

Alex Garland‘s directorial debut Ex Machina knocked us out with its combination of provocative writing, impeccable craftsmanship, and detailed performances from Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, and Alicia Vikander. The film has played around the world and is gradually expanding across the United States.
Now there’s one more Ex Machina trailer to see, and it’s a doozy — a brief but dense treatise on the dangers of the development of artificial intelligence, set to some of the film’s darkly ominous score, by Geoff Barrow and Ben Salisbury. Oh, and the film’s distributor has also released a video featuring the great Ex Machina dance scene. No spoilers in noting that (it’s official marketing, after all) but for those who’ve already seen the film, the second video below is going to be your jam. Read More »
Ex Machina, the directorial debut from screenwriter and producer Alex Garland (Never Let Me Go, 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Dredd) may be the antidote for your original sci-fi blues. At least that’s what the response in the film’s run in the UK and other countries suggests, and what the very positive reviews out of SXSW seem to indicate. The film went over particularly well in its US debut at the festival last weekend.
Garland has crafted a film in which a programmer and a CEO, played by Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac test, and are tested by Ava (Alicia Vikander), a powerful artificial intelligence. The film sounds like the next step in an evolutionary ladder that goes from Frankenstein to Blade Runner, and you can see a new Ex Machina trailer below. Read More »
