If you’re like us and absolutely love trailers, then this was your week.

The tail-end of Comic-Con at the beginning of the week saw tons of new trailers for some of our most hotly-anticipated movies like Wonder Woman, Kong: Skull Island, and Justice League. There were so many new trailers that we made an entire post catching you up on what you might have missed: read it here.

Even after the Comic-Con excitement died out, we saw a bunch of new trailers for a variety of films being released over the next little while. Check them out below to see what you missed!

Oscar Hopefuls Chart the Course With Venice, Telluride and Toronto Bows

28 July 2016 9:33 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The early awards season landscape is filling out as selections have been made for the Venice and Toronto film festivals, leaving clues for Telluride in their wake (where seven of the last eight best picture winners have screened).

Venice (Aug. 31-Sept. 10) kicked things off with an interesting opening night choice: Damien Chazelle’s “La La Land.” Recent films that have nabbed the slot include Oscar heavyweights like “Gravity” and “Birdman.”

Selections for the festival’s competition lineup were laid out this morning, including Derek Cianfrance’s “The Light Between Oceans,” Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals,” Terrence Malick’s “Voyage of Time” and Denis Villeneuve’s “Arrival.”

Earlier in the week, Toronto (Sept. 8-18) announced its first wave of galas and special presentations for the 41st annual event. By parsing language that mostly serves to undercut Telluride (Sept. 2-5) — which keeps its lineup a secret until attendees arrive, and has been »

From Snapchat Movies to Web Series: The ‘Sickhouse’ Team Plans ’60 Second Docs’

28 July 2016 8:56 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The first feature-length movie released on Snapchat was just the tip of the iceberg for Indigenous Media, which is following up “Sickhouse” — which it produced on the social media platform — by turning to documentaries. The aptly named “60 Second Docs” is a new web series profiling eccentric real-life characters in just one minute. Its tagline: “Life. One minute at a time.”

The first installment, which premiered on June 1, is available on Facebook, YouTube and VidMe. The latest episode was released today. Already, the series has gained significant momentum, with over two million views to date.

Swamp Thing Animation Test Emerges from Canceled Justice League Dark Movie

28 July 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just three years ago, filmmaker Guillermo del Toro was prepping a live action adaptation of Justice League Dark, which at the time was entitled Dark Universe. After two years in development, the director eventually left the project, and we didn't hear much else about it until rumors swirled earlier this year that the studio is making an animated adaptation instead. That news was confirmed at Comic-Con, with the movie debuting this year, but today we have a new look at what may have been, if another director would have been involved.

Joseph Kahn, who has directed the feature films Torque and Detention, along with the controversial Power/Rangers short film last year, revealed on Twitter that he pitched his take on the project before it became an animated movie. He also shared his video of an eight-second animation test, which featured his version of Swamp Thing. Of course, we will »

Have Secret Cinema just revealed their next two big productions?

28 July 2016 12:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Next Secret Cinema production could be a musical spectacular (spectacular) and a Spielberg classic.

The next Secret Cinema gigs could have been revealed in a series of mysterious social media posts.

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been covering the latest Secret Cinema event here on The Hollywood News. That project was the superb Dirty Dancing where the organisers turned an East London park into the Kellerman’s resort from the famous movie. It was nothing short of awesome to be honest, and the 30,000 attendees sent the film hurtling into the top ten for the first time in 29 years. You can check out some images from the event here, and our review of proceedings over here.

As ever when one production closes, thoughts immediately turn to which movie they will concentrate their efforts on next, and we may just have figured out what they may be plotting. Over »

Newswire: Tiff’s 2016 lineup features The Magnificent Seven and a young Barack Obama

26 July 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Toronto International Film Festival announced a host of films that will be heading to Canada this September, including new offerings from Tom Ford, Denis Villeneuve, and Mira Nair. Kicking things off is Antoine Fuqua’s Denzel Washington- and Chris Pratt-starring remake of the The Magnificent Seven, which will anchor this year’s opening night. The film selection was announced at a press conference earlier today, which you can watch here:

The special presentation lineup will feature the likes of Damien Chazelle’s eagerly anticipated Whiplash follow-up La La Land, Ewan McGregor’s Philip Roth adaptation American Pastoral, young Barack Obama movie Barry, Rachel Weisz’s Holocaust denier drama Denial, and Mascots, which is the latest mockumentary from Christopher Guest. Among the more eyebrow-raising entries: King Of The Dancehall from Nick Cannon—yes, that one—and a film called Catfight starring Anne Heche, Sandra Oh, and Alicia Silverstone. »

Toronto Film Festival 2016: What Films Will Contend For Oscar Gold After Tiff Premieres

26 July 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Toronto Film Festival, which runs September 8-18, announced its lineup today with a ton of potential Oscar contenders — but it’s not the only showcase that some of them will have in the fall. Tiff has been sensitive of late about Labor Day weekend rival Telluride’s annual panoply of unannounced Oscar contenders. However, the two film events work in concert, as the earlier well-curated festival — attended by a small coterie of influencers — builds buzz for the later, sprawling Tiff, with its larger mass of junket media, including the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes on the Golden Globes.

The Original Cast Return for T2: Trainspotting

25 July 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The original "Trainspotters" are back for more in T2: Trainspotting!  You can see how they've aged in the new teaser for the film!

A much older Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, and Ewen Bremner are back to reprise their roles in the sequel for the 20 year old classic, Trainspotting, with T2: Trainspotting.  Even Danny Boyle has returned to conduct the feature!  

Since this is just a teaser, there aren't a lot of details as far as the plot is concerned.  However, there is a lot of hope that the movie will follow the same path, author, Irvine Welsh laid out for the cast of misfits.  He originally wrote Trainspotting followed by Porno.  In Porno, the guys cross paths again but instead of through drugs its through pornography.  Although, in that novel, it had only been a 10 year gap.

We'll just have to wait and see when »

‘T2: Trainspotting’: Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie Return in First Teaser

25 July 2016 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twenty years after the original “Trainspotting” premiered, director Danny Boyle has reassembled the original cast for a sequel, “T2: Trainspotting.”

The first teaser, which dropped Monday morning, shows Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie standing on a platform as a train passes by with Iggy Pop’s “Lust for Life” playing in the background. “T2” takes place nine years after the original.

Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle reprise their roles from the 1996 British drama. The original, which was nominated for an Academy Award and won a BAFTA, follows Renton, who is deeply immersed in the Edinburgh drug scene, as he tries to clean up and get out, despite the allure of the drugs and influence of friends.

John Hodge, writer of the original screenplay, also returned to pen the sequel alongside Boyle.

The film is loosely based on author Irvine Welsh’s own sequel to “Trainspotting, »
