I don’t think I’ve ever not recognized Kate Winslet in a movie before. But I did not recognize her in the latest trailer for Triple 9.

This week we got our first unofficial look at Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Sporting a rugged beard, Cumberbatch certainly looks the part of the Sorcerer Supreme, and it’s given us a tiny idea of director Scott Derrickson’s aesthetic for the film. But what of Cumberbatch’s co-stars? Glad you asked! Today brings our first look at Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, all robed up and looking sort of like a mystical Jedi.

“He can change his name. He can dump his car.

John Hillcoat is the director behind The Road and Lawless, which makes Triple 9 an instant must-see. Originally conceived as a starring vehicle for Lawless star Shia LaBeouf, Triple 9 was put on the back burner for a few years before Hillcoat got back to work on it, replacing LaBeouf with Casey Affleck for this nasty little crime thriller.

One of the most talked about films at this year’s Sundance film festival was Z for Zachariah, the new film from Compliance director Craig Zobel. Lionsgate has debuted the first trailer for the post-apocalyptic love triangle drama, imagining a world in which the last few people standing are also three of our most beautiful.
