Reilly and Steve Coogan, but if you need to be convinced to see this story about the later years of the classic comedy duo of Laurel and Hardy, a new batch of clips should do the trick.

Laurel & Hardy were one of the most famous duos of all time. While their antics on-screen were light, fun and hilarious, behind the scenes, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy had some serious drama between them as they came to terms with the end of their careers. That’s what the new biopic Stan & Ollie focuses on, following the duo (played by Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly respectively) as they embark on a variety show tour in the United Kingdom in 1953, and a new featurette takes a closer look at this touching story.

Call Me By Your Name was adored by critics last year, and it rode that wave of acclaim all the way to a worthy Best Picture nomination. The film unfolds in Northern Italy in the summer of 1983, where a teenage boy named Elio (Timothée Chalamet) becomes enamored with an American graduate student (Armie Hammer) who comes to study and live with his family. They share a summer full of food, surprising romance, and, of course, music. And that music will be getting a special release on vinyl later this year.
The Call Me By Your Name soundtrack, featuring original songs by Sufjan Stevens, will be getting a Limited Peach Season Edition vinyl release with a peach-colored 2xLP set, including record sleeves that smell like peaches. Just make sure you don’t try to do with these records what Elio does with a certain peach in the movie.

Put Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan, Elisabeth Moss, and Corey Stoll in a room, and you’ve got yourself one of the most talented, charismatic rooms in Hollywood. It’s too bad that The Seagull, Michael Mayer‘s plodding, histrionic adaptation of the Anton Chekhov play of the same name, puts that talent to waste.
Mayer and screenwriter Stephen Karam enthusiastically try to modernize an 1896 romantic drama that is steeped in the subtext and social environment of Chekov’s Russia. And while the camera swings with lively verve and the lush, picturesque setting lends a dreamy quality to the film, the many colorful characters are still stuck in a story that feels like it’s over 100 years old. At the end of the day, Bening and Ronan can only do so much, and The Seagull becomes a comedy of errors without the comedy.

We’ve known that Call Me By Your Name, last year’s romantic indie drama from director Luca Guadagnino, was going to get a sequel for a little while now. The filmmaker has mentioned it a few times, but only in vague terms – until last Sunday night on the Oscars red carpet. There he revealed some new Call Me By Your Name sequel details, and seemed to confirm that actors Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet will return to reprise their roles. Read More »
Call Me By Your Name just landed four Academy Award nominations, but rather than sit back and bask in all that glorious acclaim, director Luca Guadagnino is already thinking about the sequel. Instead of repeating the same formula as the first film, Guadagnino is looking to change things up, and he already has a brand new setting for the Call Me By Your Name sequel in mind.

When 16-year-old high school student Margot Kim (Michelle La) goes missing, her father (John Cho) mounts a desperate attempt to find her in Searching, a fast-paced, nail-biting mystery that plays out entirely on computer screens. While the 2015 horror movie Unfriended unfolded on one screen, Search expands the gimmick to multiple computers and cell phones, creating an immersive experience that’s instantly engaging. This stylistic choice is executed to absolute perfection by first-time filmmaker Aneesh Chaganty, who uses it to draw a clever juxtaposition of our online lives and our daily reality while telling a dynamic story that grabs you from the first minute and doesn’t let go until its frantic conclusion.

Check out the full video for the airy and relaxing “Mystery of Love,” which contains some clips from the movie that haven’t appeared in any of its trailers so far.
