Will the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' teaser live up to the franchise's previous trailers?

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After months of on-set reports, wild rumors, tweeted photos and cryptic interviews, Disney and J.J. Abrams are releasing the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" on Friday. Moviegoers are sure to see some familiar faces and designs, plus new characters, creatures, ships and planets that will have fans speculating about what they're seeing in the same way they  did in for 1977's 'Star Wars" and 1999's "The Phantom Menace." Abrams is even more secretive than most Hollywood directors, and he loves to misdirect (remember the Khan confusion prior to the release "Star Trek Into Darkness"?), and the teaser will likely be a true tease that avoids any kind of narrative twists.  With that in mind, it's time to turn back the clock to re-visit the ever-evolving teasers released in advance of all six films. It's a list a billion of years in the making. »

Ewan McGregor And Brenton Thwaites Go On The Lam In First Trailer For Son Of A Gun

21 November 2014 1:18 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

From first-time director Julius Avery, Son Of A Gun is an explosive action thriller exploring the aftermath of a prison break. Ewan McGregor tackles the lead as the charismatic Brendan, a manipulative criminal kingpin. Along for the ride as his sidekick is Brenton Thwaites’ sympathetic Jr. The pair of accomplices rustle up a way out of the Australian slammer and strike up a professional deal on the outside.

In September, we brought you the first clip, which served as a very brief introductory moment between the pair of convicts. Definitely a tease for the bigger picture, there’s now a ton more footage in the full-length trailer that expands upon the dangerous relationship Jr enters into with Brendan. There’s also a gold mine robbery and an impossibly gorgeous bit of love interest in the shape of Alicia Vikander thrown in for good measure. Well, it Is a heist flick. »

Son Of A Gun: First Trailer For The Gritty Ewan McGregor Heist Picture Looks Flat Out Fantastic

19 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Given the early success of Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave it's really somewhat surprising that star Ewan McGregor has largely stayed away from like minded criminal fare through his career. There have been blips here and there, sure, but it's a format and genre that fits him like a glove particularly as he ages and gets a bit of weather in his face. Case in point: The just released trailer for Julius Avery's Son Of A Gun.In the criminal world, life is like a game of chess. To gain control, you have to stay a few moves ahead of your opponent.

Watch: It's All Or Nothing In U.S. Trailer For Crime Thriller 'Son Of A Gun' With Ewan McGregor & Alicia Vikander

18 November 2014 1:21 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We'll watch any film with Ewan McGregor or Alicia Vikander, so good news for us, both star in the upcoming Aussie thriller "Son Of A Gun." After premiering and opening overseas, the movie is getting on a plane and coming to the United States, and the first trailer is here. Co-starring Brenton Thwaites, the storyline for this one is pretty simple: a young thug helps a criminal veteran bust out of the jail and the pair them team up on a heist that could make them all very rich. But mix in a femme fatale, mistrust, and the tiny detail of breaking the law, and it's not quite as easy as you might think. While it sounds like the kind of effort that promises solid B-movie thrills, the result is a film that's "forgotten almost as soon as the credits roll," and that's a shame given the faces in front of the camera. »

Son Of A Gun Trailer and Poster: Ewan McGregor and Brenton Thwaites Get into a Criminal Partnership and Have a Falling Out

18 November 2014 11:09 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A24 has released the Son of a Gun trailer and poster.  The Australian thriller follows Jr (Brenton Thwaites), a young man who becomes the apprentice of a calculating crime boss (Ewan McGregor) when they bond on a prison break, but their relationship becomes jeopardized over a heist and a woman (Alicia Vikander).  I was somewhat interested in the film, but this trailer saved me the time because it doesn't play like a trailer as much as a condensed version of the entire movie.  It's almost impressive to see all three acts play out in the span of less than two minutes. Hit the jump to check out the Son of a Gun trailer and poster.  The film hits DirecTV on December 11th and will be in theaters in mid-January 2015. Via IGN. Here's the official synopsis for Son of a Gun: In the criminal world, life is like a game of chess. »

Ayelet Zurer Circling Role In Ben-Hur Remake

13 November 2014 5:53 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

MGM’s remake of 1959 historical epic Ben-Hur failed to nab Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice actress Gal Gadot (who had to pass on the project due to a scheduling conflict), but it may have managed to get a hold of another powerful woman in Superman’s life all the same.

According to THR, Ayelet Zurer, who played Superman’s Kryptonian birth mother Laura Lor Van in Man of Steel, is circling a role in Ben-Hur, though it’s not the same one that was offered to Gadot. If she ends up committing to the project she’ll play Naomi, the mother of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston).

This marks one of several big projects to come Zurer’s way following last year’s Superman reboot; she recently wrapped production on Last Days in the Desert opposite Ewan McGregor, and has been cast as Vanessa Fisk, the wife of the Kingpin, »
