It’s almost time for another holiday centric comedy from director Garry Marshall. However, this time the cast of Mother’s Day doesn’t seem quite as packed to the gills with celebrities as its predecessors Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Instead, it’s Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Britt Robertson, Sarah Chalke, Shay Mitchell, Jon Lovitz, Aasif Mandvi, Timothy Olyphant and Margo Martindale starring in the movie, which follows multiple interconnected storylines.
Now a new trailer introduces some characters we haven’t met before, including Mitchell (who debuted the trailer across her social media channels) as Olyphant’s new girlfriend — which doesn’t really sit well with his ex-wife, played by Aniston. Watch the new Mother’s Day trailer with your mom or significant other after the jump. Read More »

Apparently at some point in the past decade, Garry Marshall decided he could not rest until he’d turned every major holiday into a middling ensemble romcom. Having already put out Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, he’s now turned his attention to Mother’s Day. This one stars Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis as a loosely interconnected group of people with all kinds of mommy issues. Watch the first Mother’s Day trailer after the jump. Read More »

The Academy didn’t even think to nominate Tom Hanks for Best Actor this year, despite their overall affection for Bridge of Spies, but in the hearts of Americans he’s already secured the #1 slot. According to the new poll, Hanks is the country’s favorite movie star, beating out fellow A-listers like Denzel Washington, Harrison Ford, and Jennifer Lawrence.
Which isn’t that surprising, really. Hanks is an unquestionably talented actor who does dad movies (Bridge of Spies) and kiddie fare (Toy Story), prestige dramas (Captain Phillips) and bankable franchises (Da Vinci’s Code), and even throws the occasional artsy curveball (Cloud Atlas) for good measure. On top of all that, he enjoys a sterling personal reputation — the only gossip you ever hear about Hanks is about how nice he is.
No, far more surprising is who placed #2: Johnny Depp, who hasn’t led a solid commercial hit since that last, terrible Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Read More »

Jodie Foster‘s last directorial effort, The Beaver, made less than a million dollars domestically. That’s unfortunate, because the 2011 drama, starring Mel Gibson, is a very good film that deserved more love than it got. The Beaver isn’t a movie for everybody, but Foster’s newest film, Money Monster, looks far more accessible.
Watch the Money Monster trailer after the jump.

Did Juan José Campanella‘s Secret in Their Eyes really need to get remade in English? Eh, probably not. But it happened anyway, so all we can really do now is hope for the best. At least there’s reason to be ever-so-slightly optimistic: Chiwetel Ejiofor, Julia Roberts, and Nicole Kidman head up the new cast, and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass) directs.
That’s a solid lineup, if you can look past how very unnecessary this project seems to be in the first place. So what will the new version have to offer that the old one didn’t? Maybe the new Secret in Their Eyes trailer will have some clues. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

You could argue that Juan José Campanella‘s 2009 Argentinian thriller Secret in Their Eyes didn’t really need an English-language remake, and you’d probably be right. But as far as unnecessary remakes go, this one actually looks pretty promising.
Directed by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), the new Secret in Their Eyes stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman, and Julia Roberts as three FBI colleagues whose lives were torn apart by a brutal murder. Many years later, Ray (Ejiofor) gets a lead that could finally resolve the case, only to uncover something even more destructive. See the Secret in Their Eyes trailer and images after the jump.
