Free Birds

In the States, Thanksgiving is practically synonymous with turkey. Any mention of the holiday automatically conjures images of a big, juicy, oven-roasted bird, and vice versa. Even vegetarians aren’t immune to the association — plenty of them nod to tradition with products like Tofurkey.

But as pleasant as it is for us humans to gorge ourselves on tryptophan-laced poultry, you can’t blame turkeys for wishing they could remove themselves from the menu. In Relativity’s Free Birds, two of them finally get the chance to do just that. Reggie (Owen Wilson) and Jake (Woody Harrelson) find a time machine to take them back to the very first Thanksgiving, where they attempt to save their kind once and for all. Hit the jump to watch the first trailer.

‘Larry Crowne’ Trailer #2

Larry Crowne, the second film in which Tom Hanks worked behind the camera as director, is one that I’ve mostly passed over in the last few months. It stars Hanks as a guy who loses his job and goes to community college as part of an attempt to rebuild his future. He makes new friends, joins a scooter gang, and falls for one of his teachers, played by Julia Roberts. (Yep, it’s a big-screen alternate version of Community.)

Tom Hanks tweeted out a link to the film’s second trailer, which provides the first look at George Takei‘s work in the film, among other things. Check it out below. Read More »
