Of last year’s many Oscar snubs, David Oyelowo not receiving a nomination for his commanding leading performance in Selma was a total shock. 2014 was Oyelowo’s breakout year, and Selma cemented his place as an intensely talented star. The actor has a few films hitting theaters this year, and one hitting the small screen, as well: Nightingale, the new HBO film from producer Brad Pitt. And judging by the first trailer, Oyelowo knocks this one out of the park — but are you really surprised?
As Jon Snow on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, Kit Harington is a rugged protagonist who often seems a bit boring in his goodness. While handsome, he’s never particularly been a fan favorite in the book or the show. But you’ll get to see a different side of Harington in the upcoming Testament of Youth, in which he gets a hair cut and a shave to play a man sent off to battle in World War I.
Like the famed government site itself, Oren Peli’s Area 51 film was something that’s existed for a while now, but has remained shrouded in secrecy and hidden from the public. The director began working on the project in 2011, and the last update we received was sometime in 2013. Since then, the film has been stuck on Paramount’s shelf, and it wasn’t clear if Area 51 would ever see the light of day. Coinciding with today’s abrupt announcement of the film’s upcoming May release date, we finally have an official trailer.
After a brief intermission, M. Night Shyamalan is back. In addition to the new Fox series Wayward Pines, the twist-y filmmaker also has a new movie coming out: The Visit. We first heard about the film last year, but other than the casting of Kathryn Hahn, production has remained fairly quiet. With Shyamalan’s latest hitting theaters in just four months, the first trailer has arrived to reveal just what The Visit is all about.
It wasn't long ago that Johnny Depp, a highly respected actor, starred in the first Pirates of the Caribbean and became a huge A-list star. But, instead of taking his newfound fame (and wealth) and using that to star in some more challenging roles, he’s starred in a bunch of Pirates sequels, Tim Burton movies and Mortdecai. Had Johnny Depp lost his touch?, people asked. If this new Black Mass trailer is to be believed, no. Absolutely not.
In a summer filled with sequels and remakes and reboots, Tomorrowland is one of the few truly massive releases that doesn’t have a number in the title. While it may take its name from a “land” in Disney theme parks, the new trailer showcases a film that looks awfully ambitious, nutty and original. The studio’s accountants certainly see this as another avenue in strengthening the company’s theme park IP, but if all such exercises had directors like Brad Bird, the world would probably be a better place, full of more interesting movies.
The Overnight was a big hit at both Sundance and SXSW this year, and pretty soon you’ll be able to see why for yourself. The new comedy starring Adam Scott and Jason Schwartzman has delivered an official trailer, inviting you to witness what might be the most hilariously uncomfortable dinner party in the history of uncomfortable dinner parties.
Something has survived ... and it’s been packaged, licensed and sold to an audience of millions! No, we’re not talking about the Jurassic Park franchise or the new Jurassic World trailer, but rather the dinosaurs on display in the film, who are the star attractions in a fully functioning prehistoric theme park where nothing ever goes wrong! Until it does. And when things go wrong at dinosaur theme parks, things go really wrong.
Star Wars! It’s back! With lightsabers! And Stormtroopers! Jedis! The Force! The Force awakening! X-wings! X-wings flying over water! R2-D2! Other, additional droids! The Millennium Falcon!
