While we wait to see what Disney does with its never-gonna-get-recast icon Indiana Jones, Napoleon Dynamite duo Jared and Jerusha Hess have mounted their own search for the Holy Grail. Don Verdean stars Sam Rockwell as a Biblical archaeologist who gets caught in the rivalry between two congregations led by Danny McBride and Will Forte. Needless to say, this is a much sillier quest than the one Indy went on in The Last Crusade.
Also starring are Jemaine Clement as his Holy Land associate Boaz, Amy Ryan as his assistant Carol, and Leslie Bibb as McBride’s wife. Watch the Don Verdean trailer after the jump. Read More »

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks reunite this fall for another wartime story, but this one’s of a chillier sort.

Scott Shepherd, Amy Ryan, Sebastian Koch, and Alan Alda also star. Watch the Bridge of Spies trailer after the jump. Read More »
For people of a certain age, the Goosebumps books by R.L. Stine were the introduction to reading, and to horror, and probably to many other things. Now there’s a Goosebumps movie, with Jack Black as the lead, playing a fictionalized version of Stine himself, and Jillian Bell, Amy Ryan, Ken Marino, and Kumail Nanjiani playing characters who end up touched by the not-so-fictional world and creatures created by the writer. Check out the Goosebumps trailer below. Read More »

Forget Guardians of the Galaxy — this year’s most unusual superhero movie has got to be Alejandro González Iñárritu‘s Birdman. Though to be fair, it’s not so much a superhero movie as it is a superhero movie movie.
Former Batman Michael Keaton plays a washed-up actor who got famous years ago playing an iconic superhero. In a bid to recapture his former glory, he decides to put on a Broadway show. On his way to opening night, he struggles with everything from egotistical actors to an unhappy family to his own troubled soul. Watch the new Birdman international trailer after the jump.

Walter White isn’t the only prickly small-screen antihero coming back in the next couple of weeks. Larry David is returning to television for the first time since Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s eighth season ended in 2011 with Clear History, a new movie by HBO.
Technically, David’s Clear History character is entirely separate from his Curb one. For starters, his name here isn’t “Larry David” but Nathan Flomm. For another, Flomm’s a marketing exec who works with Jon Hamm’s character. But the film’s premise — Flomm loses his stake in a startup after a petty argument, only to see the company grow into a billion-dollar corporation — certainly sounds very Curb-y. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

Guy Pearce was last seen in Iron Man 3, and Felicity Jones will soon appear in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But in Drake Doremus‘ Breathe In, they’ll both ditch the superpowered world for a quieter, messier, more grounded one.
In his follow-up to 2011’s festival hit Like Crazy, which also starred Jones, Doremus once again delves into the complicated desires that connect and separate people. Pearce plays music teacher Keith, whose family plays host to British exchange student Sophie (Jones). A talented piano player — not to mention a soulful, striking young woman — she draws Keith’s attention, and a forbidden bond begins to form. Amy Ryan and Mackenzie Davis also star, as Keith’s wife and daughter, respectively. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
