Lion trailer

Producer Harvey Weinstein sees awards potential in Lion, one of the two contenders he’s betting on this fall. The other awards hopeful film coming from TWC, in Harvey Weinstein’s eyes, is The Founder, based on the life of Ray Kroc. While that biopic is about a man driven by greed, Lion is a more kind-hearted and inspiring tale, about a man (Dev Patel) searching for his family.

Below, watch the Lion trailer.

Kubo and the Two Strings Trailer

We know that the last Kubo and the Two Strings trailer was supposed to be the final one, but it looks like Focus Features and LAIKA wanted to show off a little more from their anticipated stop-motion animated fantasy epic. It’s a quick new trailer, but it has plenty of new footage featuring Kubo stepping into the big shoes left behind by his warrior father, as well as some little bits of humor as well.

Rooney Mara

Charlie McDowell recently shot his second feature film, The Discovery. The sci-fi film is his follow-up to the high-concept drama The One I Love, a promising, small-scale directorial debut. While his new feature doesn’t sound much bigger in scope, its cast is certainly larger than the two-person show McDowell previously directed. The Discovery stars Rooney Mara , Robert Redford, Jason Segel, Jesse Plemmons, and Riley Keough. Netflix has acquired the global rights to McDowell’s next feature, which we’ll see in 2017.

Kubo and the Two Strings Trailer

There’s a good chance that I will always be stunned by how incredibly gorgeous stop-motion animation looks from Laika. The studio is host to dozens of animators who are masters of their craft, and when you see the new footage from the final Kubo and the Two Strings trailer, you’ll certainly agree.

The fantasy adventure follows a young boy named Kubo (Art Parkinson) who gets caught up in the kind of fantasy adventures with which he usually entertains his village. With the help of a monkey (Charlize Theron) and a trusty, loyal warrior named Beetle (Matthew McConaughey), Kubo must face gods and monsters in order to learn the true history of his family and become a hero in the process.

joaquin phoenix jesus

Jesus Christ is one hell of a role for an actor. You get to be a brave spiritual leader, face down the enemies of both God and man, and then you get the most dramatic death scene of all time. It’s the complete package. Whether you follow the Christian religion or not, Jesus is one of most fascinating figures in human history, a vessel for a variety of a beliefs and a vehicle for examining faith and how we view the world and its inhabitants.

So the news that the great Joaquin Phoenix may play Jesus in Garth DavisMary Magdalene is just plain fascinating to me. It’s hard to imagine Phoenix playing a traditional riff on the chief symbol of the Christian faith, so the fact that he’s being considered for the role at all says a great deal about what Davis may have in store for us with this Biblical drama.

Carol trailer

Todd Haynes‘ Carol is an excellent film. The more I think about it, the more I love it. It’s a quiet movie, one that speaks to you through performances and visuals, not always dialogue. It’s a rare movie, in that sense, and it’s one of the many reasons why you should all see it in a theater. The Weinstein Company has released another trailer for film, which you can watch after the jump.
