kidnap trailer

I don’t know about you people, but I’m ready for the Halle Berry career renaissance. I think that we, as a symbolic nation of movie fans, are ready to completely forget about the likes of Catwoman and Die Another Day and Gothika and Things We Lost in the Fire and embrace a second wind. She’s a fine actress, a more-than-capable screen presence, and when it comes to more recent Berry performances, more people should talk about her brave and bonkers work in the brave and bonkers Cloud Atlas.

In any case, she appears to be carving out a new niche as the star of lower-budgeted thrillers. 2013’s The Call was a modest hit and Kidnap looks to be cut out of similar cloth.

Wolverine Storm romance

So much of Wolverine’s storyline in the X-Men movies has revolved around his tortured love for Jean Grey. But a new X-Men: Days of Future Past deleted scene reveals he was supposed to finally move on in the last film. With longtime colleague Storm, of all people.

Extant trailer

In Extant, the upcoming CBS show from producer Steven Spielberg, Halle Berry plays a woman who spends thirteen months on a solo mission in space. She returns pregnant, and what happens next will blow your mind. Or so we’re told — and I don’t think that’s because she goes home to write Upworthy headlines. We’ve known next to nothing about the mysterious show, and this first full Extant trailer starts to tease some vague sense of what the producers meant when they said last year that the main character’s “experiences lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.” Read More »

Wolverine: The Musical?

Thursday, two new X-Men Days of Future Past posters were revealed. They were not very good. Today, nine more have hit the web. Nine. Unlike those two, these don’t appear to be theatrical. Instead these look like the $8 poster you’d purchase at Wal-Mart or Spencer’s Gifts and, surprise surprise, that actually makes them kind of cool. (Some of them at least.) Others are the same simple composition that plagued these two. Still, you’ll get some new glimpses at Ian Mckellen, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Halle Berry, James McAvoy, Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Lawrence and others. Check out nine new X-Men Days of Future Past posters below.

Frankie and Alice

Over three years ago, we saw the first trailer for Frankie & Alice, a fact-based drama about a ’70s stripper suffering from dissociative identity disorder. And then… nothing. Aside from a brief, barely publicized awards-qualifying run in late 2010 (which didn’t get star Halle Berry any Oscar love, but did earn her a Golden Globe nomination), the picture never received a theatrical release.

But it looks like someone has finally taken the film off the shelf and blown off the dust. Frankie & Alice is now headed for a spring opening, and there’s a brand-new trailer to prove it. Hit the jump to check it out.
