Not long ago we brought you the trailer for ‘Cymbeline,’ the upcoming dark ‘n gritty contemporary take on the William Shakespeare play of the same name—well, not anymore. ‘Cymbeline’ has been given the new title ‘Anarchy,’ which doesn’t really scream “Shakespeare,” though it does sound like a pretty cool title if you’re living on the edge in high school in 1996.

If there’s one thing the ‘Good Kill’ trailer has going for it, it’s relevancy. Filmmakers have been telling stories about U.S. military actions in Afghanistan for a decade now, but this seems to be the first somewhat major movie to tackle the subject of drones, a topic that has started its fair share of controversy in the media and arguments around dinner tables. Even if it had nothing else going for it, this is a film that is very much of the moment.

Today brings the first trailer for 'Cymbeline,' yet another modernization of a William Shakespeare play -- though this one is lesser-known. And while we've certainly seen Shakespeare updated plenty of times, and we've seen Shakespeare done with Ethan Hawke and John Leguizamo, we've definitely never seen Shakespeare with a biker gang twist. So at least it has that going for it.

After months of negotiations, Joaquin Phoenix still hasn't accepted the title role in Marvel's 'Doctor Strange' and if you want to believe that latest rumor floating around the internet, Phoenix's hesitation and resistance is Ethan Hawke's gain. Yep, according to at least one source, Hawke is now the new frontrunner to play Marvel's cinematic Sorcerer Supreme.

Although you'd think that starring in Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' -- a film that took twelve years to make -- would be a labor of love, star Ethan Hawke found a way to make the project even more personally appealing. He used it as an audition for the next 'Star Wars' movie. Well, sort of.

The first 'Predestination' trailer shows a film in which Ethan Hawke ('The Purge,' 'Boyhood') seeks to prevent major crimes before they even happen. It sounds just like something out of a Philip K. Dick novel, right? Only here Hawke is traveling through time to stop these events, as opposed to relying on those pesky Precogs of 'Minority Report.'

'Boyhood' Review

Richard Linklater
Every film is a cultural artifact. As singular works of art, movies are their own self-contained contributions to popular culture, but their often essential inclusion of things like music, fashion, and slang within their own narratives puts them into a unique space – art wrapped around art, culture enveloped in culture. It’s why even bad period-set films are so fun to watch, as seeing canny cultural representations is almost always amusing, if not a bit intriguing. Blame it on nostalgia, shared memory, or even a good old-fashioned affection for otherwise forgotten pop culture snippets, but movies that work hard to accurately depict a time period or an era always have an extra it of built-in entertainment.

The 'Boyhood' trailer isn't shy about sharing the film's countless accolades (including one from our own Mike Ryan), but can you blame 'em? Richard Linklater's upcoming epic won rave reviews out of Sundance and SXSW, where it was described as a masterpiece and one of the best films of the year. If the trailer is any indication, none of that is empty hype -- this looks like something truly special.
