Susan Sarandon is starring in not one but two movies about mothers and daughters this spring. Since The Meddler is about more than just being a mom — and because we don’t see enough movies about being a mom — getting two of them the same time of year, both starring Sarandon, isn’t such a bad thing. The trailer for the other one, Mothers and Daughters, has just been released, and you can watch it below.

The Meddler was on my most anticipated of 2016 list. The film, which stars Rose Byrne and Susan Sarandon, is Lorene Scafaria‘s second directorial effort, following the effortlessly charming Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Scafaria’s film premiered at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, where it was greeted with a positive reception. Sarandon, in particular, was praised for her performance.
Watch The Meddler trailer below.

In just a few short years, Melissa McCarthy has proven herself to be a major box office draw. This summer, she’ll put that appeal to the test again with her passion project Tammy. Her husband Ben Falcone directed the dark comedy, from a script they wrote together.
The plot centers on (you guessed it) McCarthy’s Tammy, a woman who’s just hit rock bottom. She’s desperate to get out of town, but she’s just crashed her car and doesn’t have any money. So she agrees to go on a road trip with her alcoholic grandma (Susan Sarandon), who wants to see Niagara Falls. The first teaser did a good job of setting the tone of the film; now check out the rest of the Tammy trailer, which lays out more of the story.

Melissa McCarthy co-wrote and stars in Tammy, a road-trip comedy opening July 2. The actresss’ husband, Ben Falcone, directed the film, which finds the main character on basically the worst day ever. She tries to get out of town, but has no car, so ends up on the road with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon). On paper, it sounds a little underwhelming but the prime Summer release date, and McCarthy’s last few hit films, definitely scream confidence. Does the trailer? Find out below. Read More »
The last time we saw footage from The Company You Keep — a political thriller directed by and starring Robert Redford — it was just about to premiere in Toronto. Now we’ve got a full, proper theatrical trailer for the movie. This trailer sets up the story a bit differently, using a dialogue cut-and-paste to lay out the story of two former Weather Underground members, one of whom is captured (Susan Sarandon), leading the other (Redford) to go on the run.
Shia LaBeouf is the reporter who goes on the trail of the story, giving the footage a real “All the President’s Men” sort of feel. Some of the rest of the impressive cast (Julie Christie, Sam Elliott, Brendan Gleeson, Terrence Howard, Richard Jenkins, Anna Kendrick, Brit Marling, Stanley Tucci, Nick Nolte, Chris Cooper) gets time in this trailer, too, just to let audiences know that everyone showed up when Redford called.
