It’s the near-distant future and your husband or wife has left you. Instead of making a Tinder profile or joining OKCupid, you check into The Hotel. There you have 45 days to find a new partner, and if you fail you’re transformed into the animal of your choosing, then released into The Forest to live out your days. Is this a foreshadowing of our future? Maybe, but it’s also the plot of Yorgos Lanthimos’ latest film, ‘The Lobster.’

In 2013, Spike Jonze delivered one of the most poignant and thoughtful meditations on the complexities of relationships and humanity with Her. Two years later and Yorgos Lanthimos has given us what is perhaps the most definitive relationship film in years with The Lobster, a movie that explores the full spectrum of relationships with impeccable wit, delightfully dark humor and insights so sharp they verge on deadly.

A Week Prior to Release, A24 Delays ‘The Lobster’

Today, a small development that may have major ramifications down the line: Deadline reports that yesterday, fledgling film distributor A24 quietly struck the March 11 release date of The Lobster from their schedule, with plans to announce a new release date ‘shortly.’ (A24 recently took over distribution of the film from another company, Alchemy.) The Deadline item also takes care to note that the relatively young distribution outfit waltzed away from the Oscars on Sunday night with three key wins — Ex Machina picked up the Best Visual Effects prize, Amy Winehouse chronicle Amy snagged the Best Documentary Feature award, and their adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s novel Room earned Brie Larson the Best Actress Oscar. Though we’ll find out shortly, it smells a bit like A24 may be considering a release later in the year, to pose The Lobster as a possible awards contender.

Yorgos Lanthimos is responsible for such darkly satirical films as Dogtooth and Alps, but his latest might be his most heartfelt, perceptive and hilarious film yet. The trailer for The Lobster asks you to envision a world in which Colin Farrell is a mustached, lonely schlub faced with a rather alarming predicament: he has 45 days to find a mate, or he'll be transformed into an animal — at least he gets to choose the animal.

We got our first look at Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them just yesterday, offering a sneak peek at Eddie Redmayne’s magizoologist Newt Scamander, along with a few of his pals. While the Harry Potter spinoff is based on the fictional textbook featured in both the book and film series, very little has been said of the plot of Fantastic Beasts. Today brings some plot details as well as a full rundown of the new characters we’ll be meeting next fall.

An already impressive cast for the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has gotten even more impressive.

‘Solace’ Trailer: Anthony Hopkins and Colin Farrell Play a Game of Psychic Cat and Mouse

The Solace trailer is in the unfortunate position of having to sell a movie whose real world backstory seems far more interesting than what’s actually on screen. Still, there’s something weirdly charming about this low-rent preview, which looks like it was dragged kicking and screaming from the ‘90s. And that’s appropriate enough since it was originally a sequel to one of the most acclaimed films of that decade.
