Review: The Finest Hours Blu-ray

14 August 2016 3:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

The Finest Hours tells the incredible true story of the greatest small-boat rescue in United States Coast Guard History.

"I'll tell your husband what you've been up to!" The Weinstein Company has debuted a trailer for the period romance Tulip Fever, based on the book of the same name. Dane DeHaan plays Jan Van Loos, an artist hired to paint a portrait of a married woman and her husband during the tulip mania of 17th century Amsterdam.

This trailer is packed with vintage sets, big beards, elaborate costumes and much more, but I'm not sure the story is really that interesting. Take a look.

It seems you can't go a few weeks without hearing about a movie featuring Alicia Vikander. The actress is having a very busy 2015, with three movies on her slate for 2016, including the blockbuster "Jason Bourne" and the Derek Cianfrance directed "The Light Between Oceans." But coming before both of those is "Tulip Fever,"  a movie she shot back in 2014 and which features a new experience for Vikander, oddly enough.

For example, American audiences are still waiting to see the WWII tale "Suite Francaise" starring Michelle Williams and Matthias Schoenaerts, but another starry vehicle that has been lost in the wilderness has been given a release date, and it's right around the corner.
