Left with no answers and no way to communicate, the man and his estranged father-in-law (Forest Whitaker) must race across the country to save his pregnant wife.

Michael Peña’s only 2016 release was Collateral Beauty. Alexander Skarsgård had Zoolander 2 and Legend of Tarzan. Needless to say, this has not been a great year for them. Thankfully, their 2017 already looks way more promising, thanks to the upcoming release of War on Everyone.
Directed by John Michael McDonagh (Calvary, The Guard), this dark comedy stars Peña and Skarsgård as a pair of cops working in New Mexico. But don’t assume they’re the good guys — this pair is so crooked, even the criminals they deal with seem taken aback. When they get mixed up with a strip club manager (Caleb Landry Jones) and his even shadier boss (Theo James), they realize they may be in deeper than they’d intended. Tessa Thompson also stars. Check out the War on Everyone trailer below. Read More »

Rooney Mara has had a very busy fall, with not one, not two, but three separate films playing at TIFF. Today we’ve got the trailer for one of them, Jim Sheridan‘s The Secret Scripture.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Sebastian Barry, The Secret Scripture chronicles the loves and losses of a young woman named Rose (Mara) in 1940s Ireland. She’s caught the attention of several men in town including the local priest (Divergent‘s Theo James), but has eyes only for a dashing fighter pilot (Sing Street‘s Jack Reynor). What unfolds next explains why, 40 years later, she’s in an insane asylum (Vanessa Redgrave plays the older Rose) where she is being interviewed by a psychologist (Eric Bana).

The Underworld franchise is now over 13 years old. The fifth installment in the series, Underworld: Blood Wars, isn’t another prequel like Underworld: Rise of the Lycans; it’s another sequel following Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a vampire with a deep fondness for tight black leather and a real knack for disposing of Lycans. At first, Underworld: Blood Wars was going to be a reboot, but Beckinsale decided to return to her role for the fourth time.
Below, watch the Underworld: Blood Wars trailer.

Richard Gere is one of those movies stars who’s probably slightly undervalued as an actor because of his stardom. But for the past decade, aside from the occasional hokey romance or two, he’s been doing some of his most thoughtful work as a performer. He’s taken on smaller and more intimate projects, frequently playing some wonderfully unlikable and deeply human characters (see The Hoax or The Hunting Party, if you haven’t already). His next film, The Benefactor, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, and it was met with mostly positive reviews.
After the jump, watch the trailer for The Benefactor.
