With every new casting update, the gestating detective spoof Holmes and Watson gets a little bit better. Casting former Step Brothers Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as bumbling iterations of Sherlock Holmes and his man Watson was an inspired move to...

We’ve got one of the biggest movies of the summer (or any summer!), with superheroes doing battle with each other instead of the bad guys, the sequel to one of the most popular comedies of the last decade, and Tilda Swinton and Ralph Fiennes in a steamy film about love and betrayal amongst a rock star and her friends.

Anomalisa is a tough stop-motion act to follow (to be fair, Charlie Kaufman typically sets the bar pretty high), but if anyone is suited for the task it’s Laika, the studio behind delightful animated features like ParaNorman and The Boxtrolls. Their latest effort blends Laika’s usual wit and charm with stunning visuals matched by an equally remarkable journey, making Kubo and the Two Strings an epic worthy of the eponymous character’s vibrant mythology.

‘Kubo and the Two Strings’ Trailer: More Fantastical Stop-Motion From Laika

We’ve been looking forward to Laika’s upcoming fantasy adventure Kubo and the Two Strings since the first trailer surfaced back in December. The fledgling studio has accrued a ’00s-Pixar-level spotless track record in the past seven years; their releases Coraline, ParaNorman, and The Boxtrolls dazzled critics and audiences alike with their blend of ceaselessly clever humor and stop-motion wizardry. There’s no reason to believe Kubo won’t continue this hot streak for Laika, and the latest trailer to appear online cements this as one of the year’s most exciting animated releases. (Though the potential for crossover appeal in the world of furries is not quite as great as that of Zootopia. Point, Disney.)

To be fair, that's a pretty believable headline. If Tilda Swinton started a glam rock band tomorrow, she'd be the biggest music star on the planet in a matter of seconds. That's sort of the space she occupies in the trailer for A Bigger Splash, which reunites her with the director of I Am Love for a new dramedy that features Swinton basically playing a female version of David Bowie, by the looks of it.

The studio behind ParaNorman, Coraline and The Boxtrolls returns with the beautiful new stop-motion animated project Kubo and the Two Strings, an action-fantasy-adventure that, uh, pulls out all the stops. But seriously, the first trailer for Laika’s latest looks more epic and stunning than anything they’ve attempted before.

So far, the voice casting for the LEGO Batman movie has been exceptionally on-point, with Will Arnett reprising his satirically brooding role as the titular hero alongside Michael Cera’s Robin, Rosario Dawson’s Batgirl and Zach Galifianakis’ Joker. Joining that awesome lineup is Ralph Fiennes, who will lend his vocal talents to the role of Batman / Bruce Wayne’s wise old butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

If you saw 2009’s I Am Love, the family drama from director Luca Guadagnino, you’re going to want to see A Bigger Splash, Guadagnino’s new movie with his I Am Love star, the chameleonic Tilda Swinton. This time Swinton plays a rock star on vacation with her partner (Rust and Bone’s Matthias Schoenaerts), when the arrival of an ex played by Ralph Fiennes (and his daughter, played by Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson) throws their whole trip into chaos.

Ranking the 2015 Oscar Snubs From “Totally Forgivable” to “WTF?"

Yep, it’s that time of the year again. The 2015 Oscar nominations are here and it’s time for everyone to get outraged and cynical over which movies get the opportunity to take home statuettes of naked golden dudes. Sure, we always tell ourselves that the Academy Awards don’t really matter and that a film’s legacy will live or die for reasons beyond trophies, but we always end up getting angry about these things anyway. However, this year’s biggest snubs seems more egregious than usual and require slightly more yelling and stamping of feet.
