HBO Sports is best known for its documentaries and boxing match offerings, but the company is doing something a little different with 7 Days in Hell: it's a mockumentary about an epic tennis match between two intense rivals, played by Andy Samberg and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. And like a good mockumentary, this one seems to mine some great comedy from its authenticity.

If this trailer for Justin Kurzel’s adaptation of Macbeth is any indication, we’re not looking at our average Shakespeare movie. The upcoming film starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard as Lord and Lady Macbeth looks incredibly intense and visually stunning — definitely something you want to put on your must-see list.
It’s one those true stories that no one would believe if it didn’t actually happen. In 1974, artist high-wire Philippe Petit walked across a cable strung between the two World Trade Center towers. He didn’t have permission, it was very illegal, and it took an entire team of experts to pull it off. The story was the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire and now it has been dramatized in The Walk, which has just revealed a new trailer.
Hollywood has seen its fair share of movies where man attempts to conquer nature, only to find himself thoroughly humbled. Everest looks to continue that trend, putting one of the best ensembles in recent memory smack-dab in the middle of Mother Nature’s wrath. As the title implies, the film deals with an expedition up the world’s tallest mountain going oh-so-horribly wrong. As the trailer shows us, an Everest expedition going wrong looks like an incredible movie.
The new Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation trailer doesn’t offer up anything drastically different from the usual Mission: Impossible movie — Tom Cruise, shadowy government agents, an elegantly dressed woman kicking ass, insane stunts, an improbable task — but it does all those things (and does them all so well), it’s hard to not get excited for the upcoming fifth installment.
What at first seemed like a silly idea for a reboot/sequel has already proven itself as incredibly promising with just a couple of trailers — a new trailer for Vacation has arrived, and it’s just as funny as the previous ones (although it features less of Chris Hemsworth’s, um, area). A new generation of Griswolds hit the road for Walley World, and the results appear to be even more disastrous than the original gang’s vacation attempts.
From the very beginning of his career, Noah Baumbach has drawn comparisons to Woody Allen. Like Allen, Baumbach makes witty, urbane comedies of manners, mostly set in and around New York City. Many feature nebbishy Jewish actors (Jesse Eisenberg, Ben Stiller). Now we can add another Allen comparison to the mix: Baumbach’s become so prolific he’s releasing two movies in one calendar year. He’s an obsession with the New York Knicks, a thick pair of glasses, and a complete fear of technology away from becoming indistinguishable from the genuine article.
Boy, Andrew Garfield lost that Spider-Man gig and times got tough fast. Okay, maybe not. But in the trailer for 99 Homes, the new thriller from director Ramin Bahrani, Garfield plays a man evicted from his home by a remorseless real-estate broker played by Michael Shannon. Desperate to provide for his family, Garfield’s character goes to work for Shannon’s; soon he’s the one kicking poor people out of their beloved homes. It’s sink-or-swim in modern America, Shannon’s character says. But is it okay to keeping swimming if you have to drown other people and use their lifeless bodies to stay afloat? That’s the question.
I want to believe in the goodness of Paper Towns, the new film based on the novel by The Fault in Our Stars author John Green — but it’s difficult because it kind of looks like another one of those Manic Pixie Dream Girl movies where a lost boy just needs the most magical, perfect girl to teach him how to live. It could still be cute, and judging by the latest trailer, it probably is; it’s just that we’ve seen this story a lot already.
Here is the new red band trailer for Ted 2, which gets in on some of that Star Wars action by spoofing Darth Vader's breathing and swapping it out for bong hits. Did you like the first Ted movie? If so, good news, guys because the sequel looks like more of the same. More juvenile humor, stoner jokes and lots and lots of profanity. Enjoy!
