Benedict Cumberbatch is a man of many hats. Mainstay of the British theatre scene, unlikely Hollywood heartthrob, prestige-picture leading man, mystical off-beat superhero, and of course, the noted lizard alien’s greatest performance of all has been...

‘Collide’ Trailer: Nicholas Hoult Goes For a Drive to Save Felicity Jones

by Britt Hayes May 24, 2016 @ 8:00 PM
As anyone who has watched a fair amount of movies can tell you, it’s a bad idea to mess with Anthony Hopkins. But that’s exactly what Nicholas Hoult does — however unwittingly — in the trailer for Collide, a new thriller that puts the Fury Road star back behind the wheel, this time to save the woman he loves, played by Felicity Jones. That’s perfectly fine, but the real attraction here is Ben Kingsley and whatever the hell he’s wearing.

Anyone familiar with Richard Adams’ Watership Down can attest to its grim nature, but an upcoming animated miniseries for The BBC and Netflix at least has a bright outlook on its cast. Not only can Star Wars lead John Boyega and several X-Men count themselves among the new voices, so too can Gemma Arterton and more.

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.

We have a pretty stacked summer ahead of us, kicking off in May with Captain America: Civil War, followed by the (hopefully) equally epic X-Men: Apocalypse. The mutants of First Class and Days of Future Past are no longer the new kids on the block, as younger versions of Jean Grey, Scott Summers and more are getting in on the action in the upcoming sequel. To better familiarize you with the lineup, 20th Century Fox has released several new character posters which boast various mutants old and new along with their respective powers.

Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult Have Slick Sci-Fi Haircuts in the ‘Equals’ Trailer

by Charles Bramesco February 11, 2016 @ 10:31 AM
In the distant future, humankind has completely eradicated the scourge of emotion. More importantly, they have eradicated the scourge of bad haircuts. Everyone in the future has slick, immaculately coiffed hairdos perfectly complemented by an ensemble of crisp stainless whites. The future looks so clean you could eat off of it, and yet even in this antiseptic utopia, trouble’s a-brewing. There’s a lethal virus going around, and while the trailer embedded above dare not speak its name, we don’t share the same reservations. The leads of Drake Doremus’ festival sensation Equals have a bad case of ‘the feels’.

One of the most hotly anticipated films on the docket for this year is Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan, the filmmaker’s first foray into English-language scripting and his first collaboration with Hollywood A-listers. Another round of casting has brought even more wattage into this buzzy production, with Natalie Portman, Nicholas Hoult, and The Slap’s Thandie Newton all joining the cast in unspecified roles.

There are approximately 134 Robin Hood movies in development at various studios (okay, it’s actually more like four or five), but Lionsgate is rushing to get their version to the big screen first. The studio recently hired Peaky Blinders director Otto Hathurst (whose name sounds like a character from Peaky Blinders) to helm Robin Hood: Origins, and now they’ve come up with a shortlist of potential leading men to play the rebooted version of the Prince of Thieves.

‘Dark Places’ Trailer: Charlize Theron Survives a Massacre and Joins the Kill Club

by Britt Hayes June 18, 2015 @ 6:08 PM
The first U.S. trailer for Dark Places has finally arrived, featuring Charlize Theron in the latest film adaptation of one of best-selling author Gillian Flynn’s novels. Flynn also wrote the novel (and subsequent screenplay) for last year’s Gone Girl, though it doesn’t seem like Dark Places is going to be as big of a hit — the film is currently available on DirecTV almost two months ahead of its theatrical release.
