'Frank' is a movie that has the audacity to cast a known face like Michael Fassbender in the lead role and then hide him in a giant, silly-looking fake head for the entire running time. In other words, it's our kind of weird. The film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival -- where we gave it a sparkling review -- and with the first 'Frank' trailer, you can see why. This movie looks crazy and, more importantly, crazy good.
The first preview for Angelina Jolie's latest directorial effort, 'Unbroken,' premiered during the 2014 Winter Olympics today -- appropriate, as the story of her latest film follows an Olympian who tragically becomes a prisoner of war during World War II. And it looks to be pretty inspirational stuff from the sophomore director and A-list actress, whose debut film, 'In the Land of Blood and Honey,' also told a harrowing and inspirational story.
Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson star in Richard Curtis' ('Love Actually') latest and, unfortunately, last directorial effort, 'About Time.' The two play a father-and-son duo with a unique family trait -- the men can all travel through time. While the film is a unique take on the rom-com genre, focusing primarily on Gleeson's Tim as he uses his gift to land a girlfriend (in Rachel McAdams), this familial relationship offers some of the film's most moving moments.
If the finished film is anything like the trailer, 'About Time' will be one of those movies that your girlfriend/wife drags you to see against your wishes that you end up loving. After all, writer/director Richard Curtis is responsible for 2003's 'Love Actually,' which everyone with a soul cherishes.
