Christmas Eve has never looked this crazy...
Columbia Pictures has released a new red band trailer for the Christmas comedy The Night Before, and its the perfect gift to get us excited for the holidays! Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie star as childhood friends who get together for a final night of holiday craziness before Seth’s character becomes a father. And boy do they go crazy. The three of them basically put the “high” in high holidays in the new NSFW trailer for the Christmas comedy. The Night Before hits theatres Nov. 20, but make sure to watch the trailer above just to see what you’re in for! It’s definitely not the conventional holiday film we’re used to!
Adele, Queen of the World
So, you know the guy who gave us the beautiful video for “Hello”? His name is Xavier Dolan, and Adele could be making her big screen debut in his movie The Death and Life of John F. Donovan! Deadline reports that the singer is currently in talks to make a cameo in the movie that also stars Jessica Chastain, Kit Harrington, Susan Sarandon, and Kathy Bates. Now that’s a star-studded cast, am I right!? More »
Remember how much the world loved My Big Fat Greek Wedding? The movie was a major hit back 2002 and has basically cemented itself as one of those movies that’s impossible to hate–and impossible to turn off when you catch it on TV. Well, the first trailer for My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 made it’s way into the world today, and thankfully, it seems just as amusing as the first one. This time writer/director/star Nia Vardalos is dealing with a teenage daughter and parents who were apparently never married in the first place. I could be into this. Especially because we get to see more of hot John Corbett and all of the extended Greek family. Her family was totally the best part of the first movie (“That’s okay. I make lamb.”). And even if My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 doesn’t live up to the hype of the first movie, at least we all know it can’t be as bad as My Big Fat Greek Life. Check out the trailer above and tell us what you think of it. If they make a third one can it just be a buddy comedy about Lainie Kazan and Andrea Martin‘s characters?
Oh, I’m sorry, were you not planning on crying today? Because we’re about to change that. 32-year-old Star Wars fan Daniel Fleetwood passed away this week after a very rough battle with terminal cancer. As you’ll recall, Daniel was a life-long Star Wars fan who wasn’t sure he would be alive to see Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens in December. After writing about it on Facebook, getting a hashtag going on Twitter and getting support from Mark Hamill and John Boyega, Daniel did get to see a rough cut of the movie earlier this month. It was a pretty fantastic moment in the Star Wars community. More »
Can she remember her family?
The first Finding Dory trailer is here! Just one day after the official poster for the film was released, Ellen DeGeneres shared an exclusive first look at the trailer. The film brings back the fan-favorite character from Finding Nemo, voiced by Ellen. We also will see the return of Marlin and Nemo! In the trailer, we see the very forgetful Dory having her first memory, which has something to do with her family. Obviously this means we need another deep sea adventure to find Dory’s family, and we couldn’t be more excited! Finding Dory premieres in theaters on June 17. Watch above — we promise it will make you feel an ocean’s worth of emotions!
No Strangers here!
At least this sneak pic from the Doctor Strange set is a lot less grainy than the one we posted previously. You can now clearly see what Benedict Cumberbatch looks as the Marvel character, a former surgeon who is turned into a powerful sorcerer, trained to protect Earth from some otherworldly beasties. Walking with Benedict is Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays Strange’s arch-nemesis, Baron Mordo (even though he looks like a Jedi). Although they look chummy in the photo, guess it won’t stay that way. Take a look!
And why should she?
I’m usually wary on all sequels, especially when the original is so freaking good, but Pixar has rarely disappointed me in that regard. Both Toy Story sequels are even better than the original. So I have amazingly high hopes for Finding Dory, the follow up to probably my favorite Pixar movie, Finding Nemo. The first poster was released on Monday, and of course the tag line reads, “She just kept swimming.” Heart emoji.
Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god. You guys! There’s so much new stuff! Now, I’m not saying that the trailer we got a couple of weeks ago wasn’t one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, but I am saying that I might appreciate this Japanese trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens more. Probably because it gives us more story tidbits. Oh, and of course because it gave me chills and made me cry. This trailer gives us way more from Daisy Ridley‘s Rey (she knows “all about waiting…for my family”–who is her family?! Luke? Leia? Han? Mon Mothma?), John Boyega‘s Finn actually gives his name and we see more of Leia, C-3PO and everyone’s future BFF, BB-8. More »
As if the tearjerking documentary Amy wasn’t enough for you, Amy Winehouse‘s life story is getting major motion picture biopic treatment. And the totally badass, amazing, original Lisbeth Salander, Noomi Rapace, is in talks to star as Amy herself. The film will be written and directed by Irish filmmaker Kristen Sheridan, known for Dollhouse and August Rush. My first reaction to this news was, “I didn’t know Noomi could sing,”although who knows if she actually will in the movie. We’ve known her from her very serious roles in Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Prometheus, so I’m not used to seeing her play someone really artsy. But Amy clearly was clearly suffering in a deep and serious way, so based on her credentials I’m confident Noomi will nail the role. More »
