‘Black Mass’ Trailer: First Look At Johnny Depp As Boston Gangster Whitey Bulger
Given how many films and TV show plots the man inspired, it’s kind of surprising that James Joseph “Whitey” Bulger never has been the subject of a narrative film. That changes with Black Mass, based on the true-crime book and starring an almost unrecognizable Johnny Depp as the Boston gangster-turned-informant-turned-fugitive. The first brutal and slightly terrifying official trailer has been released from captivity, and we have the UK version here.
Set during the 1970s, B… Read
‘The Disappearance’ Uncovers Big Ratings; Is It France’s ‘Broadchurch’?
From Quad Television, the TV arm of the production company behind 2011’s hit feature The Intouchables, Disparue (aka The Disappearance) may just be France’s answer to UK dramas like Broadchurch and The Missing.

‘The Little Prince’ Flies In With New International Trailer – Cannes
Kung Fu Panda-helmer Mark Osborne’s animated The Little Prince has a Special Screening berth in Cannes next month, the second time he’s had a movie open out of competition at the festival. The adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic and timeless novella comes with a twist: It’s framed by the story of a young girl with an overachieving mother whose new next door neighbor is an old aviator. He recounts to her his tale of crashing in a desert and meeting a boy from… Read
‘The Overnight’ Trailer: Schwartzman, Schilling, Scott As SoCal Swingers
After several years spent playing the most wholesome man in Indiana on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, it makes sense that Adam Scott’s resume is now filling up with roles that go a full 180-degree turn away from his Ben Wyatt. His latest, The Overnight, a very well-received sex comedy that provoked a minor bidding war this year at Sundance, finally has a trailer. And it’s hilarious.
The film follows a married couple (Scott, and Orange Is The New Black star Taylor Schilling)… Read
‘Jurassic World’ Trailer: Let The Dino-Feasting Begin
Here are a couple of chilling and telling lines from the first full trailer for Jurassic World that pretty much sum up the movie — and the franchise. “These animals are thinkin’, 'I gotta eat, I gotta hunt." That’s one from Chris Pratt’s Owen, a park staffer who specializes in behavioral research. This one is from Bryce Dallas Howard’s Claire, the operations manager, who shouts it to colleagues on her car’s radio, “We have an asset out of containment.” Suppose we add one… Read
‘Star Wars Battlefront’ Game Trailer Looks Like A Live-Action Movie
It’s been quite the weekend for Star Wars trailers of various sorts, no doubt in part because of the big four-day fan event in Anaheim this weekend focused on the franchise.
First there was Thursday’s (really pretty thrilling) teaser for The Force Awakens, which did plenty to awaken the force of fan frenzy for the film debuting in December. Then there was today’s teaser for first spinoff, Rogue One, which screened in a panel at the Anaheim show but hasn’t officially been… Read
Doctor Doom Revealed As Fox Unleashes New ‘Fantastic Four’ Trailer After Leak
Not one to be left out of a trend, following the leak earlier this morning of a new trailer for 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot, the studio has made the official video available online. Now revealed, the look of iconic Fantastic Four villain Doctor Doom. The answer: kind of awesome.
The trailer gives us slightly more details about the origin of Marvel’s first family, though nothing that hasn’t already been revealed. They’re a team of government-funded scientists… Read
‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Spinoff A Prequel, With Teaser Trailer Shown
Shocking no one, except perhaps those who aren’t force-sensitive, details for Star Wars: Rogue One – the first of several planned stand-alone films set in a galaxy far, far away but not connected to the new official trilogy – were revealed today at Star Wars Celebration, the big four-day fan frenzy in Anaheim. As it turns out, the film will be a prequel set just before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope (for those losing track, that’s the franchise’s original film).
‘Tale Of Tales’ Trailer: Salma Hayek Dines On A Dragon Heart – Cannes
French distributor Le Pacte has dropped a teaser for Cannes Film Festival competition entry Tale Of Tales. The movie is one of a trio in the section that hails from an Italian director. Reality and Gomorra helmer Matteo Garrone here turns his lens on a collection of 17th century fairy tales by Giambattista Basile. In English, though there’s virtually no dialogue in the trailer above, the film is a fantasy that stars Salma Hayek (digging with gusto into the bloody heart of… Read
‘Batman V Superman’ Trailer Gets Official Release Following Leak
Nearly 24 hours after the trailer for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was leaked via a shaky cellphone camera recording, Warner Bros has kneeled before reality and released the teaser officially. The trailer for the film, starring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill as DC’s contentious superheroes, originally was planned to be unveiled during a 15-minute long event in Imax theaters on Monday. The studio’s official release spoils that planned surprise.
Warner Bros and DC can… Read
