Ben Affleck will try to reactivate his Argo mojo with Live By Night, a new prestige-y gangster picture coming to theaters very late in December (and expanding wider in 2017). Based on the novel by Dennis Lehane (who also wrote the source for Affleck’s first directorial effort, Gone Baby Gone), the film stars Affleck, who also directed and penned the screenplay, as the son of a Boston police captain who ventures into a life of crime. The cast also includes Elle Fanning, Brendan Gleeson, and Sienna Miller. Here’s the official synopsis:

Try to Make It Through the ‘Beware the Slenderman’ Trailer Without Freaking Out

by Charles Bramesco November 11, 2016 @ 8:38 AM
Even for a case in which a 12-year-old girl gets stabbed nearly 20 times, it was particularly heinous: young Payton Leutner of Waukesha, Wisconsin was recovered bleeding out in the woods near a slumber party she had been attending in 2014. Her attackers were two of her good friends, fellow middle schoolers. What could have possessed a couple of innocent kids to suddenly turn psychopath without warning and leave their pal for dead in the middle of the night?

Everyone’s Getting Upgraded in the New ‘Underworld: Blood Wars’ Trailer

by Emma Stefansky November 10, 2016 @ 7:01 PM
The wars in the next Underworld movie (can you believe there are five of these now???) are about blood, as evidenced by the subtitle “Blood Wars.” But whose blood? Selene’s, of course, who else’s? According to this new trailer, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is “the purest of them all,” although she says she’s not that pure. The Lycans have a new leader, and he believes that drinking Selene’s blood will give him powers stronger than any Lycan has ever had before.

Darth Vader Is All Over the New ‘Rogue One’ International Trailer

by Emma Stefansky November 10, 2016 @ 3:50 PM
As the Rogue One trailers keep rolling out, they get increasingly more Darth Vader-y. In the first few, we had that shot of the back of his helmet. Then, in the next couple, a new shot of him talking to Ben Mendelsohn’s Director Krennic. Now, the most recent international trailer actually starts off with his “Imperial March” theme and includes a short soundbite of that chilling breathing noise.

Will Smith Reckons with Existence, Plays with Dominos in New 'Collateral Beauty' Trailer

Warner Bros.
Following through on the soupy metaphysics and syrupy emotionality of past projects Seven Pounds and The Pursuit of Happyness, Will Smith completes his “All Along, the Meaning of Life… Was Love” trilogy on December 16 with David Frankel’s Collateral Beauty. A new trailer for the inspirational/”inspirational” morality play has surfaced online today, and it contains all the sky-high emotions, A Christmas Carol-but-with-a-soul narrative structuring, and elaborate domino structures that audiences would expect. It could certainly use more footage of Smith playing with dominos, but then, what movie couldn’t?

Cara Delevingne and Dane DeHaan Blast Into Space In First Trailer for Luc Besson’s ‘Valerian’

by Erin Whitney November 10, 2016 @ 9:46 AM
If you loved The Fifth Element (and honestly, who doesn’t?) then you’ll be excited for the latest sci-fi visual creation to pop out of the mind of Luc Besson. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets looks even more wacky than that 1997 sci-fi adventure based on the first trailer.

Jackie Chan Plays Chauffeur to a Lion (and Punches People) in ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ Trailer

Think of the new action-comedy Kung Fu Yoga as an East Asian rework of Driving Miss Daisy, except with Jackie Chan instead of Morgan Freeman, and a real live lion instead of Jessica Tandy, and flurries of punches instead of soft commentary on the undercurrents of intolerance in the American South. Okay, they’re almost entirely different movies, but the takeaway here is that Jackie Chan drives off a cliff in what appears to be a police cruiser with the king of the savannah riding in the backseat. Jackie Chan, in case anyone had forgotten, is 62 years old.

Hope Is Still Alive in This New ‘Rogue One’ TV Spot

We’re just about a month away from Disney’s biggest gamble on the Star Wars universe. While odds are good that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will do well at the box office  —  projects this big rarely fail to find their audience  —  there must be a little anxiety in the hearts of Star Wars fans and Disney executives alike. The studio has made some pretty big financial investments in their upcoming slate of standalone Star Wars stories; if Rogue One disappoints in its opening weekend, it could be seen as a shot across the bow of Disney’s future slate.

‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ Trailer: The Dark Knight Returns (Again)

by Britt Hayes November 4, 2016 @ 10:57 AM
Warner Bros.
Although just about every character in The LEGO Movie was delightful enough to deserve their own spinoff, only one truly warranted it: Will Arnett’s hilariously narcissistic Batman. The new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie expands on what made that character so great, functioning as both a loving sendup and amazing satire of the iconic superhero. It’s kind of perfect.

Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern Have a Daughter in the ‘Wilson’ Red Band Trailer

You know those actors you’ve always wanted to see reunite in a movie but never thought in your wildest dreams you’d get the chance? Woody Harrelson and Laura Dern both co-starred in 2005’s The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio, and now they’re together again for Wilson, a comedy from The Skeleton Twins director Craig Johnson. Johnson has proven to be adept at handling complicated family relationships while keeping a wry sense of humor the whole time, and in its first trailer, Wilson looks to be just that.
