All right, so Steve Jobs has nothing to do with Jobs, the Ashton Kutcher biopic about late Apple cofounder and CEO Steve Jobs — except for the fake that they’re about the same person. The twist, supposedly, for this new Jobs biopic, which is directed by Danny Boyle and written by Aaron Sorkin, is that the whole film is set at and around three different Apple product launches. (Kutcher’s version featured a more traditional biopic structure).

If you were a fan of the Crimson Peak trailer that hit earlier this week, may we interest you in the new international trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s gothic horror tale? This trailer is even more effective and haunting (literally and figuratively) than the domestic version, with lots of spooky new footage and a few sneak peeks at the actual ghosts of this ghost story.
David Gordon Green returns with his follow-up to last year’s critically-acclaimed Joe, and although both Green and Al Pacino appear to be trying very hard, it doesn’t look like the director can do the same for Pacino that he did for Nicolas Cage. Credit where credit’s due: this does look like one of Pacino’s best performances in recent memory.
Since an ancient curse forces Ryan Murphy to produce as many new shows as humanly possible, he had find something to fill the Glee-shaped hole in Fox’s schedule or risk losing his soul to that ancient Sumerian demon he summoned all those years ago. The new Scream Queens trailer makes his new series look like the strange halfway point between Glee and American Horror Story, which is appropriate since he also created the latter.
Giving the little yellow sidekicks from the Despicable Me films was inevitable, but at least Minions looks fun. The new, full trailer for the spinoff has arrived, taking you on a journey back through time to learn the origins of these weird little creatures and following them on their endeavor to find a new villain to serve.
The Tribe is a film you should definitely put on your to-do list. The upcoming release from Drafthouse Films is a provocative, unnerving exercise in the value of show vs. tell, an affecting and layered drama that immerses the audience in the isolated world of its characters — a cast of deaf teenagers at a school in the Ukraine, who communicate entirely through sign language. There is no spoken dialogue or music, and the new trailer for the film effectively sells that premise.
Here is a handy guide to help you figure out if you are watching a Nancy Meyers movie: 1. Does it feature a well-to-do white couple with an impressively designed kitchen? 2. Does it feature a Person of Advanced Age? 3. Does the trailer make you tear up despite your better instincts? 4. Do you find yourself unable to relate to the tragically white cast of characters in their pleasant cardigans, with all their disposable income and their IKEA catalogue-ready kitchens? If you answered yes to all of the above (okay, maybe number three is just me), then you are watching a Nancy Meyers movie, or at least the trailer for The Intern.
Universal and Legendary have released the second full trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, the director’s new gothic ghost story featuring Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and a whole lot of crimson on snow — that actually might be the most striking image in the entire trailer.
The first trailer for Jon M. Chu’s Jem and the Holograms has arrived, and as indicated by a few of the photos released yesterday, this take on the classic ‘80s cartoon star is a bit more…serious. There are a couple of moments that promise levity and comedy, like Juliette Lewis’ record exec assuring the girls that it’s not them on that poster — “It’s Photoshop.” This new Jem doesn’t seem truly outrageous at all. She just seems a bit broody.
The new Vacation may bear the same name as the old Vacation, but it’s actually a sequel, taking place a few decades after the first ill-fated Griswold family trip to Walley World. The first trailer for this new version has arrived and while it has the same title and premise as its predecessor, it bends over backwards to let you know that Ed Helms is the same Rusty Griswold from 32 years ago, all grown up. Can we call this a rebootquel?
