"To put it simply - her brain is on fire." An odd trailer has debuted for the film Brain on Fire, a medical mystery psychological drama from Irish director Gerard Barrett. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a young woman who starts going mad after she begins to experience really terrible seizures, and her life falls apart as a result. Based on the true story of Susannah Cahalan. The full cast includes Richard Armitage, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tyler Perry, Thomas Mann, Vincent Gale, Nicole Laplaca, Navid Negahban, Agam Darshi, with an appearance by Jenny Slate. This is a weird trailer that throws a curveball part of the way through, then gets laughably cheesy at the end. The footage is okay, but the title cards are the worst. Here's the first official trailer for Gerard Barrett's Brain On Fire, direct from YouTube: Susannah Cahalan (Chloë Grace Moretz), a journalist at the New York Post, »

Clouds of Sils Maria star Chloë Grace Moretz premiered her latest project, Brain on Fire, at Toronto International Film Festival last year and ahead of a Netflix release, the first trailer has landed. Directed by Gerard Barrett (Glassland), the film explores the true story of Susannah Cahalan, a journalist in New York City who was inflicted with serious health issues, including seizures and hallucinations (scientifically diagnosed as anti-nmda receptor encephalitis).
As one can see in the trailer, her condition worsens over the course of weeks and she quickly goes from violence to catatonia. It’s not until having numerous misdiagnoses and a hospitalization, when a doctor finally gives her a diagnosis with the hope she can rebuild her life. Also starring Jenny Slate, Thomas Mann, Tyler Perry, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Richard Armitage, check out the trailer below for the Charlize Theron-produced drama.

The closing credits of a documentary always include a list of film and TV clips, along with the sources that granted their permission to use them. At the end of “Erase and Forget,” the list is jarringly different: It’s a catalogue of clips lifted right off of YouTube, listed simply by their URL addresses, with no permission given. This could prove to be a legal-rights nightmare for any company that was interested in distributing “Erase and Forget.” And it’s of a piece with the film’s thrown-together student-movie naïveté. The director, Andrea Luka Zimmermann, hasn’t so much made a documentary as presented 90 minutes’ worth of raw material for a documentary. Yet Zimmermann has grabbed hold of the tail of a fascinating subject: the life of James “Bo” Gritz, the Vietnam veteran who enjoyed 15 minutes of fame in the 1980s (he was said to have inspired the character »

If there’s one defining trait that underpins the Ocean’s franchise, it’s a suitably suave cast. More than five decades ago, Lewis Milestone gathered a crack team of well-tailored, fiercely intelligent crooks for an old-school heist movie. That tradition continued through Steven Soderbergh’s 2001 remake, one which birthed a trilogy of crime capers headed up George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon and many more well-tailored, fiercely intelligent crooks.
Now, the buck has been passed on to director Gary Ross (The Hunger Games), who has brought together an enviable lineup for his female-fronted spinoff, Ocean’s Eight. Billed as more of a continuation of the Ocean’s series than a full-scale reboot, we now have our first official look at Sandra Bullock and her fellow criminals riding on the New York City subway. She’ll take point as Debbie Ocean, the estranged sister of George Clooney’s Danny Ocean, »

With production underway and its female stars already cast, Ocean’s Eight has been spending the last few weeks rounding out the supporting cast with actors like Damian Lewis (Billions, Homeland) and James Corden (The Late Late Show, Into the Woods). Now, we have word on another cast addition, and a couple Kardashian cameos.
According to Deadline, The Hobbit trilogy and Hannibal actor Richard Armitage has signed on in a secretive role. There are literally no details as to who he’ll be playing, or how big of a role he’ll have.
In other news, E! has the scoop that both Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner will cameo in the film. The models/reality TV stars shot a scene set at the New York Met Gala. They’ll reportedly be joined by Vogue editor in chief and fashion icon Anna Wintour. Their’s won’t be the only cameos »

Deadline has the scoop, confirming that Armitage, who is perhaps best known for his roles across Alice Through the Looking Glass and Peter Jackson’s Hobbit franchise, will play a mystery character in next year’s female-led crime caper. How exactly the actor’s newcomer fits into proceedings is up for question, though given the stacked ensemble cast, we’re inclined to believe the Brit will hold a small supporting role opposite Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett and their merry band of crooks.
Those two leading ladies will anchor Ocean’s Eight as a pair of master criminals, presiding over an ensemble that includes Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. Their mission? Staging a heist that involves stealing an invaluable »

Despite the recent additions of Matt Damon, James Corden, and Damian Lewis, Ocean’s 8 is still poised to be a female-led caper. While casting for cameos, the production team stumbled upon the perfect players for bit roles in the New York Fashion Week-centered story: Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. We say that because both Kardashian and Jenner are involved in the fashion industry, and because they should be able to play themselves with aplomb. TMZ reports the sisters were recently and ever so briefly on set, all dolled up and ready to stroll wordlessly past the actors. (Our header image is actually a photo of Kardashian and Jenner‘s performance.)
But, just as we were ready to welcome one or both of the Hadids to the heist, Deadline reports that another dude has made his way into the cast. The Hobbit trilogy’s Richard Armitage has signed on in ...
