If you watched Sarah Polley’s Take This Waltz, then Sarah Silverman’s dramatic turn in I Smile Back will hardly come as a surprise to you, but if you’re only familiar with her comedy work, then this trailer for the upcoming drama might knock your socks off a bit. Silverman shows a very different side of herself in the critically acclaimed new film, which impressed critics earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.

When Clive Owen’s John Thackery says “I feel better than ever” in the new Season 2 trailer for The Knick, it’s hard to take that at face value — or any value, really. Last we saw Thackery, he was holed up in a nice rehab home for his cocaine addiction, where he was being treated with a revolutionary new drug: heroin. Hardly a promising ending for the brilliant, spun-out doctor, but whether he’s actually better or not, Thackery is back.
In The Program, Ben Foster plays renowned champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, who gave up his prestigious titles when it was revealed that he had been using performance-enhancing drugs in order to obtain them. A new trailer shows off Foster’s intensity in the role, which the actor says he achieved with the help of a little performance-enhancement of his own.
Among all the great stuff hitting the small screen this fall, it may be easy to forget that Amy Schumer — comedy goddess, hilarious human, et al. — has an HBO special coming next month. The live special was directed by HBO vet Chris Rock, but judging by the first trailer for Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo that’s probably going to seem like an afterthought because Schumer is absolutely killing it. And by it we mean this bottle of wine — but also jokes!
After the blockbuster offerings of summer we have the fall and winter movie season to look forward to, which offers some very exciting prospects — and while many (us included) are looking forward to new Star Wars, Quentin Tarantino and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, there’s one film that’s a little less showy and perhaps a little under your radar: Carol, the upcoming drama from acclaimed director Todd Haynes, which has just unveiled a new official trailer.
We’re still getting used to the fact that fall is almost here and Pumpkin Spice has taken over our lives, so it may seem a little early to be looking forward to Christmas, but Krampus is one Christmas movie that feels right at home in the Halloween season. A creepy holiday-themed horror movie, Krampus has all the makings of a future cult classic.
Before he was set to direct the remake of The Crow, director Corin Hardy helmed a spooky Irish horror flick called The Hallow. The film played festivals like Sundance and Stanley earlier this year, and to promote its fall release in the United States IFC Midnight has revealed the first official trailer for Hardy’s eerie supernatural tale.
When the Toronto International Film Festival kicks off in a little over two days, here’s how it begins, with Jean-Marc Vallée’s Demolition.
Boy, Billy Bob Thornton with no hair really looks like James Carville, huh?
Netflix may have an Oscar contender on its hands.
