A Dog’s Purpose Rings In National Dog Day With Refreshing First Trailer

26 August 2016 2:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You’ve heard the saying claiming cats have nine lives, but what about their docile companions? Introducing us to an uplifting story of canine reincarnation, the first trailer for A Dog’s Purpose has scurried online just in time for National Dog Day.

The pic, one lifted from W. Bruce Cameron’s best-seller, hails from director Lasse Hallström (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Cider House Rules). As the trailer above reveals, Josh Gad lends his vocal chords to the central canine, who experiences life through a variety of wildly different vignettes – and breeds – ranging from a cutesy pup to a trained German Shepherd. The story then becomes about Gad’s interaction with each new owner, a pitch that is about as crowd-pleasing as they come.

Imagine the premise of Todd Solondz’s indie pic Wiener-Dog, only spreading its heartfelt story across multiple eras, beginning with the 1940s. Outside of Gad’s multi-faceted role, »

Universal has debuted a trailer for the movie called A Dog's Purpose, directed by Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallström (who also made the movie Hachi: A Dog's Tale ).

Poster/Trailer/Release Date For Thomas Dekker-Helmed Jack Goes Home Arrives; Hitting VOD/On-Demand This October!

24 August 2016 5:43 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Early last year, while promoting his role in Fear Clinic, actor Thomas Dekker mentioned to us that had been writing multiple screenplays and was set to direct one of them. Being a longtime fan of Dekker’s work as an actor, I was pretty anxious to hear more about his debut, and when the film, Jack Goes Home, played at this year’s SXSW fest, it sounded like a pretty awesome experience of a film. Now, thanks to the gang at Momentum Pictures, the film now has a poster, trailer and an On-Demand/VOD release date of October 14th. Personally, I’m quite anxious to see this one. When a friend of mine did a visit to the film’s set, she sent me a text and said it seemed like a film that would be right up my alley, so count me in.

...And the Oscar goes to 'Mr. Church!'

23 August 2016 4:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective.   Eddie Murphy wants an Oscar. And with Mr. Church, he's going for it hard core. You don't do this kind of movie for the money. You do this movie because you want to hobnob with your celebrity friends in the award show circuit.    This movie is trying to pull on your heartstrings so much your heartstrings might just snap and leave you in a stupor. I admit, this is not my kind of movie. It doesn't pass the smell test. The idea is that someone dies and hires Mr. Church to cook for a daughter and her mom until the mom dies of cancer, I mean, that's nice and all, but you could also leave them a hefty bulk sum which they can manage on their own. It's also »

'Casual' season 2 in review

23 August 2016 6:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Casual just concluded its second season. I sang the show's praises in non-spoiler fashion at the start of the season  and I have a few spoiler-y thoughts on the finale, and season 2 as a whole, coming up just as soon as you insult my eyebrows... "Most people I know have very different relationships with their siblings." -Jennifer The structure of season 2 was similar in a lot of ways to the first, particularly in the two adult story arcs: Val again spends a good chunk of the year in a relationship with a guy who's much less serious than she is (even if Jack got her references in a way the hot twentysomething didn't), while Alex spends a long time behaving like an immature sociopath before turning deeply introspective. Doing 13 episodes instead of 10 allowed the show to better foreground the arcs — season 1 started in a deep hole for me with Alex, »

Elegant First Trailer For Mr. Church Tackles Love, Family And Getting Older

12 August 2016 2:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s going on four years since Eddie Murphy last stepped before the camera for A Thousand Words, but the esteemed actor is ready to end that hiatus with a touching, heartfelt drama.

Entitled Mr. Church, today’s first trailer finds Murphy in the role of the titular Henry Church, a man of many talents who develops a strong bond with a young girl (Britt Robertson) and her dying mother. Said to be inspired by a true friendship, Church’s role in the family extends far beyond that of a surrogate father, and remains a loyal guardian to Robertson’s character as she goes through childhood, adolescence, and eventually pregnancy.

If that reads as a melodramatic, schmaltzy affair, we don’t blame you; making its debut at Tribeca Film Festival earlier in the year, our review found Mr. Church to be largely forgettable, wasting a stellar turn by Eddie Murphy with a lacklustre screenplay. »

Coming Distractions: Eddie Murphy rebrands himself as a wise old chef in the Mr. Church trailer

12 August 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

If there’s one thing that studio executives never get tired of greenlighting, it’s stories of privileged but emotionally damaged young white people who have their lives changed by the presence of older working-class black folk. Glancing up at the calendar, the year is 2016, a fact that’s kind of difficult to reconcile with this brand new trailer for Mr. Church. Directed by Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) from an autobiographical screenplay by writer Susan McMartin (Another World, Two And A Half Men), Mr. Church is the story of a young woman (Britt Robertson) whose world is torn asunder when her mother (Natascha McElhone) falls ill. Luckily though, their wise, jazz-and-book-loving cook (Eddie Murphy) is there to take the impressionable child under his wing and teach and teach her about the world in his strict but loving way. Naturally, there’s at least once scene involving a porch ...
