When Ransom Riggs first published the novel Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children it may have well have been subtitled, "Please Make This Into A Movie, Tim Burton". And having failed to particularly light the box office on fire with his more personal slice of oddity, Big Eyes, Burton has now retreated back to the comforting warmth of his general stock in trade and done exactly that. When Jake discovers clues to a mystery that spans different worlds and times, he finds Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. But the mystery and danger deepen as he gets to know the residents and learns about their special powers. Predictability (for Burton) aside, this boasts a pretty fabulous cast with Eva Green, Chris O'Dowd, Judi Dench, Asa...

An anbsolute flood of trailers has hit today and here's just a few of the smaller ones. First up, the new U.S. trailer for the Lance Armstrong doping scandal drama "The Program". Ben Foster and Chris O'Dowd lead the film which opens in limited released and VOD on March 18th.
Logan Marshall-Green plays a man who shows up for dinner at a Hollywood Hills party held by his ex-wife Eden (Tammy Blanchard) and her new husband David (Michiel Huisman).

"When you say, 'I can't go any further', say to yourself: 'I'm flying!'" eOne Films has debuted the official Us trailer for The Program, the film by Stephen Frears telling the story of Lance Armstrong, played by Ben Foster. The film covers his entire career, including early introduction to the Tour, his era of doping, attempts to lie and cover it up for years, and eventual fall out. Chris O'Dowd plays journalist David Walsh, who was constantly after Armstrong for years because he knew something was up. The full cast includes Jesse Plemons, Lee Pace, Guillaume Canet and many others. I still want to see this, it looks like a deep investigation into one of the craziest cover-up stories in sports history. Compare to these first two trailers. Here's the new Us trailer for Stephen Frears' The Program, found on YouTube (via The Film Stage): From Academy »

There a few sports stories like that surrounding Lance Armstrong, the formerly beloved and inspiration cycling champion, who soon become the poster boy for disgrace and duplicity. It's rich dramatic material, and it's no surprise the story has made it to film, but it's a bit of a bummer there hasn't been that much excitement about Stephen Frears' "The Program." Read More: Watch: Three New Clips From 'The Program' With Ben Foster The always reliable Ben Foster leads the adaptation of David Walsh's book "Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong," that tracks the downfall of Armstrong as the controversy about his alleged doping began to swirl. And there's a solid supporting cast in place including Chris O'Dowd, Jesse Plemons, Dustin Hoffman, and Guillaume Canet taking roles. And while the picture didn't quite work for our critic at Tiff, I'm nonetheless curious to check it out. »
