funan featurette

When approaching horrific historical events like the rise of the violent Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia, any filmmaker has to tread carefully. But Funan director Denis Do has to approach the subject with an extra layer of sensitivity because his animated film, hitting select theaters next week, is about his own family.

Do’s mother is the basis for the main character of the French-Belgian animated film, which follows a Cambodian woman who searches for her child after he is forcibly taken from her during the beginning of the Khmer Rouge revolution in April 1975.

/Film is debuting an exclusive Funan clip featuring Do speaking about how his family’s experiences informed the acclaimed animated film. Watch the Funan featurette below.

Braveheart Honest Trailer

Honest Trailers continues their stroll through blockbuster season by taking a look back at the kind of epic war movie that studios don’t really make anymore.

Braveheart tells the true story of William Wallace (Mel Gibson), a medieval Scottish patriot who is spurred into revolt against the English when the love of his life is slaughtered. You know the line, “They may take away our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!” Well, even though this is a true story, history tells us there were no kilts, bagpipes, facepaint, wife, or princess that ever existed when these events unfolded. Oh, and that whole speech is made up too. Watch the Braveheart Honest Trailer for more! Read More »

Take a look at the trailer for the upcoming series and meet the show’s stacked cast, which includes Lizzy Caplan (Masters of Sex), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men), and Tom Wlaschiha (Game of Thrones). Read More »

tolkien featurette

So much is known about the rich world of Middle-earth that author J.R.R. Tolkien created, but little popular thought is given to his life before he wrote The Lord of the Rings. That will soon change with the upcoming Fox Searchlight biopic, Tolkien, which shows the early days of the legendary British author from his childhood through the publication of The Hobbit and his magnum opus, The Lord of the Rings. But what went into the choice of this time frame — of showing young, hot Tolkien other than an excuse to use that tagline? A new Tolkien featurette explains why the biopic covers the early years of a young J.R.R. Tolkien.

ghost army movie

The military is about to get seriously spooky thanks to Ben Affleck! The former Batman is set to direct and star in Ghost Army, from a script by True Detective creator Nic Pizzolato. Despite that title, there are no specters floating around the film rattling chains. Instead, Ghost Army tells the true story of a secret World War II military force that used tricks and fakery to fool the Nazis. This premise sounds similar to Affleck’s Argo, which may be what attracted him to the project. More on the Ghost Army movie below.
