How much brutality can you take from a movie? How much is too much? How many scenes of pain, suffering and bloodletting can you stand before you throw up your hands and cry uncle? With The Nightingale, her follow-up to the horror hit The Babadook, director Jennifer Kent seems to posing those direct questions to the audience. The filmmaker knows that we, as a species, have a thirst for violence. But that thirst has its limits. Kent wants to push beyond those limits, and then keep going. And then go further. And then ask, “Isn’t this what you wanted? Why so squeamish now?” As an experiment, it’s fascinating. As a film, it’s almost too much to stand.

Hollywood loves making movies about making movies, and even though Lone Scherfig‘s World War II romantic dramedy Their Finest actually hails from across the pond, it’s still looking for that sweet spot of nostalgia for classic filmmaking crossed with the hardships of war.
After playing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and the Sundance Film Festival just last month, Their Finest follows the making of a movie about the heroic events of a couple sisters at Dunkirk who save hundreds of soldiers. Sadly, it’s not anywhere near as compelling as we hope Christopher Nolan’s movie about Dunkirk will be, but Their Finest is coming to US theaters this spring, delivering lighthearted laughs, sappy romance, and stilted war drama. Watch the new Their Finest trailer after the jump to get a taste of the film. Read More »

I’d be lying if I said I was familiar with the work of Daphne du Maurier, the English author and playwright who wrote the book upon which director Roger Michell‘s new film My Cousin Rachel is based. However, I am familiar with several film adaptations of her work and it’s quite the track record – her novels and stories have been adapted by master filmmakers like Alfred Hitchcock (the Best Picture-winning Rebecca, the under-seen Jamaica Inn, and the bonafide horror classic The Birds) and Nicolas Roeg (the endlessly creepy Don’t Look Now). So as you watch the My Cousin Rachel trailer, it’s easy to think “Hey, no pressure, guys.”

With Game of Thrones back in full swing, fans are happy to have Emilia Clarke back as their Mother of Dragons. But this summer they’ll see another side of the British actress as she stars in the tearjerking romance Me Before You, based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes. No, it isn’t a Nicholas Sparks movie, but that doesn’t mean it’s not full of sappy, cheesy romance.
The story follows a caretaker named Louisa Clark (Clarke) tasked with taking on a paralyzed young banker named Will Traynor (Sam Claflin of The Hunger Games franchise), who is having trouble finding joy in life since an accident put him in a wheelchair a couple years ago. But Clarke’s endless charm just might be enough to get him out and about, as evidenced by a new Me Before You trailer that you can see after the jump. Read More »
Even though fans are used to seeing Emilia Clarke as the fearless mother of dragons Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones, and Sam Claflin as the trident-wielding Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise, this summer we’ll see them both in a whole new light in the heartbreaking romance Me Before You, based on Jojo Moyes book of the same name.
A new, extended Me Before You trailer has just arrived online, showing off more of the touching love story between a quirky British woman (Clarke) and a paralyzed man (Claflin) for whom she becomes a caregiver. Plus, we finally get a look at Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom from the Harry Potter series) in the movie. Watch the trailer below. Read More »

Love is in the air, what with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, and that means it’s the perfect time for Warner Bros. to try and get you to swoon for Me Before You. Emilia Clarke (of Game of Thrones fame) and Sam Claflin (of Hunger Games fame) meet and fall for each other in Thea Sharrock‘s adaptation of Jojo Moyes‘ bestselling novel.
This being a romantic drama, of course there’s a tragic twist: he’s basically given up on life following a terrible accent that’s left him a quadriplegic, and she’s his caretaker. Moyes wrote the screenplay with Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter, who basically specialize in tearjerker romances these days — they’re also the duo behind The Spectacular Now, The Fault in Our Stars, and Paper Towns. The first Me Before You trailer has arrived today, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »
