Taking on the difficult task of opening the weekend after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Warner Bros. Pictures will attempt to wage war at the box office with their medieval action epic King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Initially, I only had a passing interest in this project from director Guy Ritchie, but this most recent trailer for the movie starring Charlie Hunnam as the titular king has officially piqued my interest. It’s like the fantasy action of Lord of the Rings mixed with the style of Sherlock Holmes with some Gladiator thrown in there for good measure, including Djimon Hounsou in the cast.

Rooney Mara has had a very busy fall, with not one, not two, but three separate films playing at TIFF. Today we’ve got the trailer for one of them, Jim Sheridan‘s The Secret Scripture.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture chronicles the loves and losses of a young woman named Rose (Mara) in 1940s Ireland. She’s caught the attention of several men in town including the local priest (Divergent‘s Theo James), but has eyes only for a dashing fighter pilot (Sing Street‘s Jack Reynor). What unfolds next explains why, 40 years later, she’s in an insane asylum (Vanessa Redgrave plays the older Rose) where she is being interviewed by a psychologist (Eric Bana).

Sadly, director Guy Ritchie didn’t attend Comic-Con this year to promote a Man From U.N.C.L.E. 2. We’re not going to see that sequel anytime soon (or ever…), but Ritchie is currently hard at work on King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. Today, the first trailer for the fantasy film debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. Since Ritchie was preoccupied, only Charle Hunnam (Pacific Rim) was present to discuss the movie, which he described as possessing a “magical realism” quality.
Below, watch the King Arthur: Legend of the Sword trailer.

After making a comfortable home at Netflix for his series Derek, British comedian Ricky Gervais is bringing an original comedy feature to the streaming service with Special Correspondents. In what feels like a Tropic Thunder meets Wag the Dog kind of story, Gervais plays a sound engineer who teams up with a radio journalist (Eric Bana) to fake a report from the front line of a war in Ecuador. But when they’re believed to be missing in the country, they end up having to actually go to Ecuador so their deception isn’t discovered.
The first Special Correspondents trailer has arrived, and while it doesn’t seem quite as hilarious as I was hoping, there are a few laughs to be had. Watch it below. Read More »

Next month brings Guy Ritchie‘s swinging spy action adventure The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (watch the trailer here), but the Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director is already busy on his next film, in a completely different time period yet again.
Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur is a new telling of the classic monarch legend, a 6th century king who has been said to have defended Britain against Saxon invaders. Pacific Rim and Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam plays the title role, and now some first look photos have just surfaced, showing off a rather gruff King Arthur and his trusty sword Excalibur.
