Ray Donovan wrapped its most creatively satisfying season to date Sunday with a three-years-in-the-making moment. In the episode’s closing minutes, Liev Schreiber’s titular fixer at long last opened up about the childhood sexual abuse he suffered at the hands of Father O’Connor (the fact that his sounding board was also a man of the cloth and the setting of his emotional breakthrough was a church heightened the sequence’s potency).

A Brilliant Young Mind tells the story of a mathematically gifted British teen on the autism spectrum as he prepares to compete in an international math Olympics.
Nathan (Asa Butterfield) is gifted at math but struggles with relationships, including with his caring but overwhelmed mother Julie (Sally Hawkins).

His mother has done her best to raise him as a single parent but Nathan was never as close to her as his dad and it has been difficult for them both. A chance to enter the International Math Olympiad brings an unconventional math coach into Nathan’s life and introduces him to other mathematically gifted kids.

Over the weekend, Walt Disney Pictures released a brief trailer preview for their highly-anticipated adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, arriving in theaters April 15, 2016. The brief 15-second video didn't offer much in the way of new footage, but the studio did reveal that the first full trailer would debut yesterday, Monday, September 14, during Access Hollywood. Now, Disney has debuted our first full look at The Jungle Book online for all to enjoy.
The Jungle Book marks the feature film debut of young actor Neel Sethi, who plays Mowgli, the only character portrayed through live-action. The rest of this star-studded cast will only provide the voices for their animated characters, including Bill Murray (Baloo), Idris Elba (Shere Khan), Ben Kingsley (Bagheera), Scarlett Johansson (Kaa), Giancarlo Esposito (Akela), Lupita Nyong'o (Raksha) and Christopher Walken (King Louie). The film was originally set to debut this October, before being pushed to its current April 15, 2016 release date. »
Fans who attended the D23 Convention in Anaheim, California last month got their first look at Disney's The Jungle Book, where the first footage was presented by director Jon Favreau and stars Neel Sethi, Ben Kingsley and Lupita Nyong'o. Earlier today, Walt Disney Studios released a brief preview of the full trailer through their Instagram page, revealing that the full trailer will debut Monday, September 14 on Access Hollywood. This brief teaser doesn't offer much footage, but gives us our first glimpse at Mowgli, played by Neel Sethi.
Aside from concept art and set photo revealed by director Jon Favreau last year, we haven't seen much from The Jungle Book. Last month, a poster debuted that teased a confrontation between Mowgli and the nefarious Bagheera, voiced by Ben Kingsley. Neel Sethi's Mowgli will be the only character portrayed through live-action, with the rest of the cast merely providing their voices for the rest of the characters. »

Early yesterday, one of the formerly unseen awards contenders finally revealed itself with a Trailer. The film in question is Concussion, the Will Smith vehicle that tackles the issue of head trauma within the National Football League. Last year we had a decidedly lighter NFL related movie with Draft Day, but this year it’s Oscar bait and concussions. The flick seems to be hoping to appeal as a drama/dramatic thriller of sorts, but I’ll get into that shortly. Smith will hope to contend for his first Academy Award, but what are the prospects overall for the film? Well, let’s discuss that right now, and of course, you’ll have the Trailer to take a peek at at the end of this piece… The movie is a dramatized look at an issue the NFL is struggling with right now, namely how dangerous concussions are for their players. »

Will Smith stars in one of his most powerful roles yet as soft-spoken Nigerian doctor Bennett Omalu. He takes on the NFL in the first trailer for his new movie “Concussion,” about NFL football players devasted by multiple head injuries. Alec Baldwin, Luke Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Arliss Howard, Stephen Moyer, Eddie Marsan, Paul Reiser, David Morse and Albert Brooks play supporting roles. ...Read More
With summer drawing to a close, the season of movies on the hunt for potential awards is in full swing, and here comes another in the shape of Concussion, which stars Will Smith. The first trailer has arrived online and can be watched below. Parkland director Peter Landesman adapted Jeanne Marie Laskas’ GQ article Game Brain and has called the shots on the movie. The piece followed Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who made the crucial first discovery of concussive head trauma in a National Football League player and strove to bring awareness to the general public. Landesman’s take has already been described as an NFL-centric The Insider, putting a human face on a story about a thorny issue and the commercial interests involved in making sure the news doesn’t spread too far. If it can avoid the big pitfalls of prestige issue dramas, it could have a shot at some trophies. »
"You turned on the lights and gave their biggest boogeyman a name." Sony Pictures has unveiled the first official trailer for Concussion, a very powerful drama starring Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a real life neuropathologist who discovered how football-related trauma was becoming a health problem within the sport. They've been quietly holding onto this and positioning it for a strong awards-season push, with Smith giving it his all in the kind of emotionally riveting film that will earn a few nominations. The cast includes Alec Baldwin, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stephen Moyer, Eddie Marsan and many others. This is one of my most anticipated movies left to watch this year, the kind of powerful and subversive drama I love seeing. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Peter Landesman's Concussion, originally from The Mmqb: Will Smith stars in the incredible true David vs. Goliath story of Dr. Bennet Omalu, »
