By now, you probably have a preferred actor in mind for James Bond. Maybe it’s Idris Elba. Maybe it’s Tom Hiddleston. Maybe it’s Gillian Anderson. You could probably make a compelling argument for or against every actor currently working today; regardless, it’s fun to watch both fans and actors alike cast a pretty wide net for the role. The fact that nothing is off the table this time around can only mean good things for the future of the franchis

Following his incredible CGI work in Life of Pi, Ang Lee took a similarly ambitious approach with his latest project, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk. We’ve been intrigued for months by reports that Lee shot the action sequences in 120fps to give them a more realistic and immersive feel, and while you can’t really grasp that in the first trailer, it’s still plenty compelling.

There’s a moment (spoiler, maybe?) in The Huntsman: Winter’s War, when Sam Claflin’s prince explains that Snow White is absent because staring at the magic mirror too much made her ill (what a diss). We then see a quick shot of Snow White from behind as she agonizes in front of the mirror, though her face remains obscured. If you’ve seen the film, then it’s easy to imagine why Snow White and the Huntsman star Kristen Stewart didn’t feel like reprising her role for the sequel, but she’s happy to spell it out for you, just in case.

‘Café Society’ Trailer: Woody Goes to Hollywood

See enough Woody Allen movies and you realize he only has like eight different stories and themes and he just mixes and matches them. Based on the trailer for his latest movie, Café Society, it appears that his latest effort (his tenth movie in the last ten years and 20th movie in 20 years) combines the standard issue Allen-esque nebbish (played this time by Jesse Eisenberg) who falls for a woman way out of his league (Kristen Stewart) with his deep nostalgia for the past (in this case Hollywood of the 1930s) in a story that takes a comic look at the futility of life. It ain’t the most original premise for Woody, but when make 20 movies in 20 years, how many original premises can there be?

‘Equals’ Trailer: Kristen Stewart Falls in Sweet, Illegal Dystopian Love With Nicholas Hoult

Equals left a mixed impression on festival crowds, but it left a sizable impression nonetheless. Soon we’ll be able to judge for ourselves, thanks to the good folks at A24, who have debuted a new official trailer for the sleek dystopian sci-fi romance starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult as a pair of doomed lovers living in a society that forbids all human emotion and physical contact.
