In case you didn't know, Vince Vaughn is officially part of the cast of "True Detective" for the anthology show's second season next year. But for those of you who prefer the fast-talking actor in comedy roles, you still get what you want too. Unfinished Business is an R-rated comedy that sees Vaughn playing a businessman who heads overseas to land a big deal, but he doesn't have the best comrades on his endeavor with Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson at his side. Plus, there's James Marsden and Sienna Miller as a competing duo going after the same deal. It looks a little better than what we've seen Vaughn deliver lately in the comedy world, especially with this supporting cast, and the red band trailer is pretty raunchy. Watch!
While the music video for Billy Boyd's credits song for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies proved to be a touching retrospective look at both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit trilogy (concluding next month), a legacy trailer has just debuted looking back at both of these long adventures across Middle-Earth. Even though the prequel trilogy hasn't lived up to the quality of Peter Jackson's original ambitious jaunt into the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, there's no doubt that the filmmaker has achieved something massive and grand by giving fans the adaptations that most of them have always wanted. Watch!
"Give me a farfetched theatrical plot any day." From across the pond, a new trailer has emerged for Matthew Vaughn's big, fun spy action thriller Kingsman: The Secret Service, and fans of spies movies of all kinds are going to find something to love. It's like James Bond meets kick ass with all sorts of meta talk of other spies and their movies between Colin Firth and villain Samuel L. Jackson. Plus, the action looks to be pretty insane, especially with that henchwoman with giant blades for legs (she's also featured on four new character posters). This one also continues the trend of featuring adorable dogs (specifically a pug) in action thrillers, if that's something you love. It certainly looks like it'll be outlandish fun. Watch below!
Awards season is heating up, and one of the potential Best Actress contenders, believe it or not, may be Jennifer Aniston. The actress rarely goes down the indie road, but when she has before (The Good Girl), it's resulted in some solid work. This time she's getting plenty of acclaim for Cake, a film that strips down Aniston to being a plain, scarred, troubled woman, angry at the world and everyone around her. And there's an interesting supporting cast here too with Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington and Adriana Barraza appearing as well. The buzz indicates the film may not be as good as Aniston's performance, but we'll see.
After getting a first look at Joe Wright's new take on the infamous Lost Boy, the first trailer for the prequel story Pan has arrived. This time we find the title orphan living in the World War II era where he's kidnapped by pirates and taken to Neverland. There the boy slowly realizes his destiny to save this magical place. Hugh Jackman plays the villain Blackbeard, and Captain Hook (Garrett Hedlund) is here too, but he's not a captain yet, and he still has both hands. In fact, he's more of a dashing hero than a dastardly villain, but we all know how he turns out. This looks big and grand, but I'm not entirely sold just yet. Watch!
"Remember, if something chases you, run." Arriving ahead of schedule, the official first trailer for Jurassic World has arrived, and the park is most definitely open. Not only does the trailer introduce to just how expansive and immersive the theme park of Jurassic World actually is, but it introduces us into their new project: a genetically modified hybrid. Chris Pratt doesn't seem all too happy with Bryce Dallas Howard's endeavor, especially when their creation escapes. There's some awesome stuff here, including seemingly trained velociraptors and barely a hint of what this new terrifying dinosaur looks like. Watch it!
"Did you know you can win medals for maths?" Yes, over in the United Kingdom, the subject is called "maths," and that's exactly what Asa Butterfield (Ender's Game) does to help him connect to a world he doesn't quite understand as a high-functioning autistic boy in the drama X+Y. Though it does have some hints of cheesiness and melodrama, there's a great supporting cast here that includes Rafe Spall, Sally Hawkins and Eddie Marsan, seemingly elevating this to a genuinely inspirational story. It looks charming and and uplifting, and we hope it gets a release here in the United States next year. Watch below!
"I will harvest that planet tomorrow before I let her take it from me." We're finally getting close to Jupiter Ascending hitting theaters after it was delayed from its original release date this past summer. Because of the delay, we've already seen a good amount of what's in store for the film from Andy & Lana Wachowski, but a new French trailer teases a bit more of the big sci-fi action, and that along with the gorgeous visual seems to be the biggest selling point. It's undoubtedly a fairytale with a huge budget, and Channing Tatum fighting aliens with rocket boots just looks fun as hell. It may bomb, but I'm in. Watch!
"Did you just say China? And did you just say dong?" With almost exactly one month left until Seth Rogen and James Franco arrive in theaters with their latest comedy The Interview, the final trailer for the film has arrived, and this time we get much more Kim Jong-Un (Randall Park). The CIA paints the militant leader of North Korea as a master manipulator, but it appears as if the dimwitted talk show host Dave Skylark (Franco) finds a lot in common with him, like their love of Katy Perry. This trailer isn't quite as energetic or funny as the previous red band trailer, but there's still some great new stuff on display here.
Now that we've gotten all the buzz about the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens out of the way (see where it's playing this weekend right here), it's time to look at a little indie romance on the complete opposite end of the spectrum. "Mad Men" star Vincent Kartheiser and Juno supporting actress Olivia Thirlby star in the film chronicling the rocky relationship of a newly married couple as they take a trip on a research vessel bound for Antarctica. There's beautiful imagery and a promising, quiet and intimate drama here as what starts as a makeshift honeymoon slowly begins to unravel a couple's love. Watch the trailer!
Originally slated for release this week, DreamWorks Animation opted to send their sci-fi adventure Home to theaters next spring. And since Penguins of Madagascar gets the prime holiday release slot this weekend, that means we get a new trailer for the film featuring the voice of Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") as the unfortunately nicknamed Oh, a clumsy alien in hiding on Earth. Speaking in a dialect that seems lifted from cat memes (you'll see what I mean), this guy seems to be a lovable walking accident, but there are more of his race (including Steve Martin as their leader) coming to our planet, looking for a new home. Watch!
"You are very different than anyone I have ever met." IFC Films has debuted a brand new trailer for a film called Match, starring Patrick Stewart as an aging ballet instructor in New York City who takes up a job at Julliard. He's interviewed by a woman and her husband about dance in the 1960's, but he soon learns there's much more to her connection to him. Carla Gugino also stars, along with Matthew Lillard and Maduka Steady. This is based on a play, which makes sense considering Stewart's involvement, but more than anything it just looks like a heartwarming, life-affirming look at how to live in this wild world. Enjoy.
"I'm not going to tell stories just to please you." Wow, this looks stunning. Fox Searchlight UK has debuted a trailer for Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Thomas Hardy's classic romantic story Far From the Madding Crowd, and it looks magnificent. Carey Mulligan stars as Bathsheba Everdene (no relation to Katniss), who captures the eyes and hearts of three men in this love story: Tom Sturridge as Frank Troy, Michael Sheen as William Boldwood, and Matthias Schoenaerts as Gabriel Oak. Aside from compelling performances, the cinematography by DP Charlotte Bruus Christensen is gorgeous. Back in 1967, Julie Christie starred as Bathsheba and now it's Carey Mulligan's turn to woo us. This looks fantastic.
"As for me, I'm done making movies." Here's something to make you smile. GKids has released an official US trailer for The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness, a documentary about legendary animation house Studio Ghibli in Japan. From director Mami Sunada, the doc provides an unprecedented inside look at the inner workings of Ghibli and the daily life of animator Hayao Miyazaki, who has officially retired from making features. I've seen this documentary and it's absolutely wonderful, I was refreshed and felt so happy by the end. There's a certain magic to Studio Ghibli and they capture some of that, then again I just could go on spending days watching footage of Miyazaki-san smile and laugh. This doc is a real gem - don't miss it.
