'Kingsman: Secret Service' International Trailer Goes 'Pretty Woman'

Kingsman: The Secret Service

"What a shame we both had to grow up." After the last explosive and action-packed red band trailer for Mathew Vaughn's fun comic book spy thriller adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service, a new international trailer has arrived. But this one aims to lay out the story of the film a little more clearly, perhaps for those who may not be familiar with all the tropes of spy films and whatnot. Aside from the obvious James Bond references between Colin Firth and the villain played by Samuel L. Jackson, there's plenty of other pop culture riffs here as well, just adding to the full blown entertainment on display.

J.J. Abrams Thanks Fans from Set of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Star Wars: Force for Change

Long before the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released, our first look at the sci-fi sequel came from vidoes release in conjunction with the Star Wars: Force for Change fundraiser that was created in coordination with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The end of the fundraiser culminated with a single fan being granted the dream of visiting the set and getting a walk-on role in the film. Well, now director J.J. Abrams has returned from the set of Episode VII to thank everyone who donated and helped raise millions of dollars. You just might see a familiar droid and Wookiee. Watch!

Big Surprise: Mark Wahlberg Confirms Return for 'Transformers 5'

Mark Wahlberg

After the disaster that was Transformers: Age of Extinction, we know you're just chomping at the bits to get Mark Wahlberg back on the big screen as an inventor and friend of the Autobots. Well, the good news is that the actor is currently making the publicity rounds for this month's release of The Gambler, and of course he was asked about the future of the toy-selling franchise. MTV asked if he was coming back for the inevitable Transformers 5, and Wahlberg said, "Yeah, I committed to doing a couple more… you know I can’t speak for Mr. Bay, but something tells me we’ll be on the set soon.” Wait, what's that about Bay now?

First Look: Tom Hanks in Steven Spielberg's Untitled Cold War Drama

Spielberg's Cold War Drama

In case you didn't know, Tom Hanks is reteaming with director Steven Spielberg for a fourth time after previously working together on Saving Private Ryan, Catch Me If You Can and The Terminal. Two out of three isn't bad, and now the next film on the way is something completely different, a Cold War drama that has been referred to as St. James Place but is officially untitled as of now. The film follows the negotiation to recovering a captured pilot from behind enemy lines. But it's not a battlefield drama as this particular fight was waged by lawyer James Donovan. That's who Hanks is playing, and we have a first look below.

Watch: Period Romance 'A Little Chaos' Gets Trailers for US & UK

A Little Chaos

Most know Alan Rickman as the mysterious potions master Professor Snape in the Harry Potter franchise or Hans Gruber in Die Hard, but did you know that he occasionally directs movies? Well, until now, he had only directed one film, but now he's delivered his sophomore effort with A Little Chaos, a period romance that is about as British as any film can be. Fancy costumes, eloquent language, and the riveting clash between an architect (Matthias Schoenaerts) and a landscape designer (Kate Winslet) who work together in building one of the main gardens at King Louis XIV’s palace at Versailles in 17th Century France. But there's romance on the horizon! Doesn't sound all that compelling, but maybe it's good? Watch below!

Team America: World Police

Well, the good news bear just keep on delivering us sweet, sweet honey! Yesterday, following Sony Pictures' decision to pull The Interview from release on Christmas Day (with no plans to release the film on VOD or home video in the near future either), the Alamo Drafthouse revealed they were still going to have a little fun at North Korea's expense with a screening of Trey Parker & Matt Stone's comedy Team America: World Police, which features Kim Jong-un's father Kim Jong-il as a lonely puppet villain. This was only happening at the Dallas/Forth Worth theater, however, Deadline reports that the screening is canceled.

First Look: Jessica Chastain Gets Gothic in del Toro's 'Crimson Peak'

Crimson Peak

If the blockbuster action of giant monsters fighting human-controlled robots didn't do anything for you in Pacific Rim, then you might be a little more interested in director Guillermo del Toro returning to the horror genre with Crimson Peak. Taking the terror back to a period setting, this haunted house tale is one of our 20 Most Anticipated Films of 2015. And now we finally have a first look at the film with a photo featuring star Jessica Chastain. The film looks gothic through and through, and if you saw del Toro's tour of the gallery experience at Comic-Con over the summer, that should come as no surprise. Look below now!

Jonah Hill & James Franco in Trailer for Sundance Selection 'True Story'

True Story Trailer

"I want to tell you my side of this." Fox Searchlight has premiered a trailer for Rupert Goold's film True Story, starring Jonah Hill and James Franco as adversaries of sorts. Based on the real life memoirs of NY Times reporter Michael Finkel, played by Jonah Hill, the film follows the interactions between Finkel and accused killer Christian Longo, played by James Franco. For years, Longo lived using Finkel's identity, and even submitted writing work under his name. In addition to Hill and Franco, who look quite serious in this, the cast includes Felicity Jones, Ethan Suplee and Gretchen Mol. This actually looks really, really good. I love the intensity and some of the dialogue is on fire, this just shot to the top of my list for Sundance.

Bradley Cooper Struggles in War in Second 'American Sniper' Trailer

American Sniper

"Would you be surprised if I told you that the Navy has credited you with over 160 kills?" Bradley Cooper has been the focus of some major awards buzz for his turn in Clint Eastwood's modern war drama American Sniper, based on the true story of a Navy SEAL sniper. And while there's plenty of praise in this trailer, I have to say that performances are about the only thing worth commending. Otherwise, the film feels artificial (especially in the use of a rival enemy sniper), lacks subtlety, and doesn't cover any material that we haven't seen in films like Born on the Fourth of July or Saving Private Ryan. But judge for yourself.

Watch: Moviejerk Takes a Look Back at 'The Best of Cinema 2014'

The Best of Cinema 2014

We've featured some cool retrospective videos looking back at the films of 2014, like Sleepy Skunk's 2014 Movie Trailer Mash-Up and Nick Bosworth's Final Cut 2014. The next video we're featuring is a little more selective about the films used in a montage called The Best of Cinema 2014. There's actually only 30 films on display here, and that's because it's inspired by Moviejerk's Top 30 Films of 2014 (which hasn't been published yet). Now be prepared, because there are some films here released back in 2013 in the United States, but Moviejerk is based in the United Kingdom, so Spike Jonze's Her made the cut. Watch!

First Trailer for Peter Strickland's New Film 'The Duke of Burgundy'

The Duke of Burgundy Trailer

"This is all I have dreamed about..." IFC has debuted the first trailer for Peter Strickland's new film The Duke of Burgundy, a seductive and creepy little thriller. Strickland's last film was the mesmerizing Berberian Sound Studio with Toby Jones, which was quite a trip if you saw it. This new one has much of the same, it's twisted and weird and eerie, using cinema to evoke and provoke. The Duke of Burgundy stars Sidse Babett Knudsen and Chiara D'Anna as two women who get into a tricky relationship. The film received quite a bit of buzz out of TIFF and Fantastic Fest this year, with many critics calling it one of the best discoveries of this year's fall film fests. It's worth a look, especially if you're curious about butterflies.

Lucasfilm's Animated 'Star Wars' Holiday Card Needs More BB-8

If you're a Star Wars fan, then you're undoubtedly familiar with the infamously terrible holiday special from decades ago. Thankfully, Lucasfilm has never decided to dabble in that territory again, but they do send out some pretty cool holiday cards. This year, they posted a little animated short for their card featuring everyone's favorite astromech droid R2-D2 and the mischievous new droid Chopper from the animated series "Star Wars: Rebels." But what this card really needs is some BB-8, the ball droid who's name was just revealed with other characters from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer.
