Today we have the official trailer for the upcoming "Spotlight" film, starring Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Michael Keaton, Liev Schreiber, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, and John Slattery. Check it out below. The movie is based on a story by the Boston Globe that investigates the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts. Boston Globe's team of reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-up by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests and opened the floodgates to other revelations of molestation and cover-ups around the world that still reverberate today. "Spotlight" is directed by Tom McCarthy (The Visitor) and is set to hit theaters on November 6th. Trailer: »

Each year, a lot of filmmakers make a lot of movies. Some of them are noteworthy, some become celebrated award-winners, while a rare one or two enter into the annals of history – taking place alongside great works by artists such as Alan J. Pakula. Part of the fun is predicting which film – if any – will fall into the latter category, and this year, all eyes are on Spotlight.
It’s not an outlandish idea to compare the upcoming drama to Pakula’s legendary All The President’s Men, since the subject matter shares the theme of presenting a fictionalized account of some of the most important and remarkable journalism of the 20th century. Where Pakula’s Oscar winner focused on The Washington Post’s work on the Watergate scandal, Spotlight depicts the work of The Boston Globe in uncovering the Massachusetts Catholic sex abuse scandal of 2001.

Tom McCarthy has become a familiar figure over the course of his career in several arenas, whether as a performer on Syriana and HBO’s The Wire, or as a writer for films such as Pixar’s Up and Million Dollar Arm. It is as a filmmaker, however, that McCarthy has gained the most prominence, receiving critical acclaim for his filmmaking debut The Station Agent, which was matched by the praise for his follow-ups The Visitor and Win Win. With his last film hitting theatres early this year, McCarthy immediately got back behind the camera for his next film, titled Spotlight. The film’s synopsis is as follows.
The true story of how the Boston Globe uncovered the massive scandal of child molestation and cover-up within the local Catholic Archdiocese, shaking the entire Catholic Church to its core.

Movie trailers are starting to scare us a bit. Last week Lionsgate released a preview for "Freeheld" which made the gay rights drama look like a Lifetime movie. Today we have the first look at "Spotlight," the new ensemble drama centered on The Boston Globe's investigation into child abuse by Catholic priests and the Church's subsequent cover-up. We're hoping the movie is better than the first preview. The best news about "Spotlight" is that it brings a bunch of actors working at the height of their craft together. Mark Ruffalo has been pretty exceptional in everything he’s done since 2010's "The Kids Are All Right." Michael Keaton is coming off his first Oscar nomination for "Birdman." Rachel McAdams is hands down the best thing about "True Detective" season two. Across the cable dial Liev Schreiber's incredible work on "Ray Donovan" is making everyone forget about the bad movie roles he's landed recently. »

The 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival now has something of a slate. Festival toppers Cameron Bailey and Piers Handling presided over a press conference Tuesday morning where more than 34 films were announced including the world premieres of "The Martian," "The Family Fang" and "Demolition." It's an intriguing initial lineup for the venerable Canadian institution and something of a steadying the ship after losing some major debuts to Venice, Telluride and the New York Film Festival over the past few years. Well, maybe. The most impressive world premieres include the aforementioned "Demolition" with Jake Gyllenhaal (officially the best opening night film in recent memory), "The Family Fang" with Nicole Kidman, "Legend" with Tom Hardy, "Trumbo" with Bryan Cranston, "The Martian" with Matt Damon and Lance Armstrong doc "The Program" with Ben Foster and Michael Moore's latest documentary, "Where to Invade Next."
