In what appears to be a mix of Training Day, Sicario and Inside Man, a new trailer for the action thriller Triple 9 has just debuted. And with a story that feels very familiar, it’s the star-studded cast that seems to makes this one worth watching. Casey Affleck plays a rookie cop joining a crew of dirty cops who have blackmailed to pull off a heist for the Russian mob. No one can be trusted, and someone is probably going to die. Watch below!

The Golden Globes were last night, but the Awards season is far from over, as the Oscars and more events are still to come. Generally one of the few joys of all this awards coverage are The Hollywood Reporter roundtables, which puts some of the most talked about actors, writers, directors, and more artists in a room together for an hour. This year’s actress roundtable features Carey Mulligan (Suffragette), Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Cate Blanchett (Carol), Jane Fonda (Youth), Brie Larson (Room), Helen Mirren (Woman in Gold), Charlotte Rampling (45 Years), and Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs).

A great cast doesn’t guarantee a great movie (just look at Black Mass), but it certainly never hurts. And John Hillcoat‘s Triple 9 has got a fantastic one. The director of Lawless and The Road has brought together Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck, Anthony Mackie, Aaron Paul, Clifton Collins Jr., Norman Reedus, and Gal Gadot for his new crime drama, about an impossible heist gone very, very badly awry. Watch the latest Triple 9 trailer after the jump. Read More »
Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind Lawless, The Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red Band Trailer now after the jump.

Yorgos Lanthimos is lining up a high-powered cast for The Favourite, as Kate Winslet, Emma Stone, and Olivia Colman have all entered talks to star. That’s not too surprising, considering the success he’s had with Dogtooth and now The Lobster. No, the weird part is how un-weird it sounds. As far as we can tell, The Favourite is a pretty straightforward historical drama.

Universal has released a new trailer for Steve Jobs. Michael Fassbender stars as the iconic tech guru, seen here at three key product launches in his career — the Macintosh in 1984, NeXT in 1988, and the iMac in 1998. Kate Winslet plays his “work wife” Joanna Hoffman, Seth Rogen is Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, and Jeff Daniels is former Apple CEO John Sculley. Behold the new Steve Jobs trailer after the jump.

The simply titled biopic Steve Jobs premiered at the Telluride Film Festival over the weekend, and the first reviews coming from the mountains of Colorado seem to indicate that we have our first Oscar frontrunner.
Michael Fassbender takes the titular role as the Apple co-creator and tech genius who brought us innovations such as the iPod, iPhone and perhaps most importantly, the first mainstream home computer. The supporting cast is nothing to scoff at either with Seth Rogen, Kate Winslet, Jeff Daniels, Michael Stuhlbarg and more giving plenty more reason to pay attention to this drama.
Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle is behind the camera this time with a script by The Social Network scribe Aaron Sorkin driving the whole film. And if the Steve Jobs early buzz from reviews and reactions following the film are any indicator, this team of talent has delivered an intense, powerful, home run of a biopic that finally paints a portrait of Steve Jobs that’s worth hanging on the wall.

Just because Steve Jobs is called Steve Jobs, doesn’t mean it’s just about Steve Jobs. In fact, star Kate Winslet says, it’s “almost not about Steve Jobs at all.” Because really, “The film is about all of us.”
She’s speaking symbolically, of course, but it does sound like the film has much more on its mind than just the man in the title. In a new interview, Winslet dishes on the themes of the movie, her “extraordinary, feisty” character, and much more. Read her comments, and check out the new Steve Jobs poster, after the jump.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get our alcoholic on, stay in a really long term relationship, see what an old cast member of You Can’t Do That On Television is up to, and throw another shrimp on the barbie with Kate Winslet.
