Imitation Game trailers

Prickly geniuses aren’t the only thing Benedict Cumberbatch knows how to play, but they do kind of seem to be his specialty. The Sherlock star’s latest movie is The Imitation Game, in which he plays brilliant but troubled mathematician / cryptologist / computer scientist / etc. Alan Turing.

During World War II, Turing was called upon to help Britain crack Germany’s codes. He was spectacularly successful, and is credited with helping turn the tides in the Allies’ favor. Hit the jump to watch the first The Imitation Game trailers. Keira Knightley, Mark Strong, and Matthew Goode also star.

Laggies trailer

Dramas about overeducated, underemployed 20somethings in the throes of a quarterlife crisis are a dime a dozen on the indie film circuit. But Laggies seems worth a look anyway, if only because of the names attached.

Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister) directed the coming-of-age tale, which follows an aimless 28-year-old (Keira Knightley). When her anxieties about impending adulthood come to a head, she runs off to move in with a 16-year-old girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her single dad (Sam Rockwell). The first Laggies trailer has just arrived, and you can check it out after the jump.

Begin Again trailer

Once was one of the real gems of 2007, a delicate love story about two people brought together by music. Based on the new Begin Again trailer, director John Carney seems to be trying to repeat the trick in 2014, only on a larger scale with bigger stars.

Mark Ruffalo plays a washed up record exec who has just about hit rock bottom — that is, until he chances upon a freshly dumped musician (Keira Knightley) who’s also feeling adrift. The two strike up a collaboration that takes them all over New York City. Music is so central to this film, it was originally titled Can a Song Save Your Life?. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Laggies

Ask someone what the quintessential Sundance movie is and they might say something with well-known stars, directed by a popular independent filmmaker, in a story about finding one’s place in the world. Which, on the surface, is Lynn Shelton‘s Laggies, starring Keira Knightley, Chloe Grace Moretz and Sam Rockwell. But Laggies breaks from that mold by spinning those festival tropes in an original, likable way.

Knightley plays Megan, a 28-year-old struggling with the inevitability of adulthood. To cope she befriends — and moves in with — a high school girl (Moretz) and her single dad (Rockwell). It might sound a bit creepy, but Shelton’s direction and the three lead performances instead lead to a sweet and interesting, if never spectacular film. Read More »

Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit

The best that can be said about Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is that it’s mostly competent. The worst that can be said about it is that it’s nothing more than that. This is a slick, shiny film without an ounce of personality or depth. Its protagonist may hold a doctorate degree from the London School of Economics, but the film around him is the cinematic equivalent of the preppy frat boy who does just enough homework to pull a C- average.

Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit

As Captain Kirk in the Star Trek movies, Chris Pine has perfected the art of keeping cool under big, violent, explosive pressure. But his character in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is a whole different story.

In a new clip from the Paramount thriller, Jack is enjoying a breathtaking view from his comfy hotel when the guy (Game of ThronesNonso Anozie) supposedly helping him suddenly tries to kill him. Fortunately for Jack and unfortunately for the other guy, Jack is a trained Marine — not that that makes him any less freaked out by the way things go down.

Watch the scene and check out two new character posters featuring Keira Knightley and Kevin Costner after the jump.

jackryanpine-4_3

What better way to honor the memory of the recently deceased author Tom Clancy than to get our first look at the reboot of a franchise featuring his most famous character? Kenneth Branagh‘s reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, stars Chris Pine in the title role. Unlike versions of the character played by Ben Affleck, Harrison Ford and Alec Baldwin, however, this Jack Ryan is just at the beginning of his career as a secret agent.

Branagh does double duty as the main bad guy, Kevin Costner plays a senior agent and Keira Knightley is Ryan’s lady. Check out the trailer, which is full of that trademark Tom Clancy action and intrigue, below. Read More »
