Director Alexander Payne has brought us plenty of outstanding quirky dramatic comedies, ranging from the dark laughs in Election to the family struggles of Nebraska with a little bit of cynical romance in-between with Sideways. Now he’s heading into sci-fi territory with his latest film, and the first teaser has arrived online.
Downsizing takes place in a future where scientists have figured out how to shrink humans down to about five inches tall as a way to deal with the overpopulation of the planet. Smaller societies mean less space required, and Matt Damon and Kristen Wiig are ready to embark on a new life as tiny people. Get your first look at the little civilization and the rest of the cast in the Downsizing teaser below. Read More »

It’s almost time for another holiday centric comedy from director Garry Marshall. However, this time the cast of Mother’s Day doesn’t seem quite as packed to the gills with celebrities as its predecessors Valentine’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Instead, it’s Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson, Britt Robertson, Sarah Chalke, Shay Mitchell, Jon Lovitz, Aasif Mandvi, Timothy Olyphant and Margo Martindale starring in the movie, which follows multiple interconnected storylines.
Now a new trailer introduces some characters we haven’t met before, including Mitchell (who debuted the trailer across her social media channels) as Olyphant’s new girlfriend — which doesn’t really sit well with his ex-wife, played by Aniston. Watch the new Mother’s Day trailer with your mom or significant other after the jump. Read More »

What would you do if your kid had a near-death experience and came back to life claiming to have seen heaven? Real-life couple Todd and Sonja Burpo found themselves in exactly that situation, after their four-year-old son Colton barely survived surgery. While the parents were initially unsure what to believe, they eventually came to trust their son’s revelations, and in 2010 the father published the book Heaven Is For Real about the family’s experience.
And now, in 2013, Sony has turned that book into a movie. Greg Kinnear and Kelly Reilly play the mom and dad, while newcomer Connor Corum plays their blessed son. Margo Martindale and Thomas Haden Church also star, and Randall Wallace (Secretariat) directs. Watch the new trailer after the jump.
