Rogue One, Arrival, Allied and more in our weekly trailer round-up!Rogue One, Arrival, Allied and more in our weekly trailer round-up!Adriana Floridia8/12/2016 12:53:00 Pm

This week was a big one for movie trailers.

First off, last night, the highly anticipated Rogue One trailer finally debuted. Many of us sat around on our computers all night waiting for the event, and the trailer did not disappoint. We're pretty spoiled to have another new Star Wars movie this year, and as much as we loved The Force Awakens, this one might look even better.

Besides Rogue One, we also saw new trailers for Disney's Moana, a new red-band trailer for Bad Santa 2, and new trailers for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival, and Robert Zemeckis' Allied. Check out all of this week's new trailers below!

Brad Pitt Looks Like a Real-Life Benjamin Button in the First Trailer For Allied

12 August 2016 8:04 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

At this point, we're starting to think that Brad Pitt doesn't age. The first teaser trailer for Allied is here, and in it, the actor plays a spy assassin who falls in love with a French spy (Marion Cotillard) during World War II. Not only does the romantic thriller feature an A-list cast, but it's also directed by the man behind Forrest Gump and Cast Away, Robert Zemeckis. Although we've already gotten a few glimpses of the film with some adorable set photos, the trailer has us even more excited for its Nov. 23 release. »

‘Arrival’ Teaser Trailer: What Other Studios Can Learn From the Brief, Spoiler-Free Clip

10 August 2016 9:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Remember the “Dark Knight Rises” teaser? Sure you do — it was better than the movie itself. At barely 90 seconds long, it offered little in the way of actual footage from the film but made every frame count: Commissioner Gordon beseeching Batman to return to Gotham; the briefest glimpse of Bane; those ominous chants rumbling from the background that apparently translate to “rise.” It was a model for all other such ads, and one that yesterday’s look at Denis Villeneuve’s “Arrival” brings to mind.

Set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival early next month, the “Sicario” director’s latest is about an extraterrestrial species that visits earth for reasons unknown. Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker have to make their way into the aliens’ spacecraft and…well, it’s difficult to say after that, because the minute-long teaser doesn’t actually tell us — which is as it should be. »

Swiss Army Man – Review

30 June 2016 10:16 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

For many, Summer is a time to “get away from it all”. That’s been a theme for lots of movie characters over the years. Robert Redford in All Is Lost and James Franco in 127 Hours escaped the rat race to explore the world solo, but both getaways lead to disaster (we just saw that last weekend with Blake Lively in The Shallows). Of course, solitude is often not a choice, but the result of fate. It perhaps started with Robinson Crusoe (made into several films), the idea of one or two people (or the seven TV folks on a “three-hour tour”) stranded on a desolate island. Swept Away was an Italian flick and an American remake, but the recent epic adventure that most movie fans would recall might be 2000’s Cast Away, This new film explores similar themes, but while Tom Hanks had a volleyball named Wilson as company, »

Blake Lively on Filming The Shallows and Her Amazing Burger Hack

24 June 2016 12:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Like Tom Hanks (Cast Away), Sandra Bullock (Gravity) and husband Ryan Reynolds (Buried) before her, The Shallows' Blake Lively is joining the relatively small group of actors who have appeared alone on screen for the majority of a movie. "It was super intimidating, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do it," Lively told People and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle in the latest episode of The Jess Cagle Interview. "An isolation film is, I think, one of the greatest undertakings you can take as an actor because it's all you, and it seems like a terrible idea, »

Tom Hanks: His best performances to date

20 April 2016 8:27 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

This week, both at the Tribeca Film Festival as well as opening in theaters, we have an independent movie that stars Tom Hanks. Especially considering how infrequently Hanks acts in small films these days, this is something to take notice of. The film in question? Well, it’s A Hologram for the King, of course. Side note, this is another example of a thing that I mentioned yesterday, namely that a Tribeca title is going basically straight to general release. There’s another one of these still to discuss before the week is out, but right now, Hanks’ flick is what is in the spotlight. I see it tomorrow, so instead of delving too deep into it, I’ll be looking at his career and what I feel are his best performances so far to date. Fun, right? We’ll, here goes nothing! Quickly, a bit on the film itself. »

Daniel Radcliffe’s Farting Corpse Movie ‘Swiss Army Man’ Gets Trailer

4 April 2016 8:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The most divisive movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival has finally gotten a trailer.

Dubbed “Daniel Radcliffe’s farting corpse movie,” “Swiss Army Man” prompted walk-outs when it premiered at Sundance on Jan. 22. A24 released the first trailer, which is sure to divide an even larger audience, for the film on Monday.

Paul Dano’s Hank is about to commit suicide in the teaser when he catches sight of a corpse (Daniel Radcliffe) that has washed ashore on the desert island where he’s stranded. The deranged man befriends the dead body who eventually talks back. And when they’re not discussing profound topics like the meaning of life, the duo chats about masturbation. Radcliffe’s Manny soon becomes a multi-purpose utility tool that Hank uses to karate chop logs and ride as a jet ski back to the mainland.

Six Memorable Female Body Transformations in Movies

Body transformations has always been a talked about topic.  Sometimes actors give it their all for a part and that can mean going through rigorous training to transform their body to epitomize their character to maximum levels.  Often when people think about crazy transformations for films it involves men.  Think about Robert De Niro in Raging Bull.  Or how about the insane transformation of Christian Bale in The Machinist.  Remember Edward Norton in American History XTom Hanks in Cast Away? Seriously, the list goes on and on and on.  But notice the main theme here: men.  I did a

Rob Bredow Promoted to Chief Technology Officer of Lucasfilm

17 March 2016 2:13 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rob Bredow has been promoted to chief technology officer of Lucasfilm.

Bredow has long been one of the most respected technologists in Hollywood. He was a visual effects supervisor and chief technology officer at Sony Pictures Imageworks before ankling for Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic in 2014, with the title of vfx supervisor. Within months of the move, he was appointed VP of new media and head of the studio’s Advanced Development Group.  In this role, Bredow assisted in the launch of Lucasfilm’s R&D unit ILMxLab, which introduced a “Star Wars” Virtual Reality experience to a group of reporters in San Francisco earlier this week.

In assuming this new role, Bredow says he is striving to uphold Lucasfilm’s signature innovative spirit, and do so in a way that prioritizes storytelling.

“We’re not about technology for technology,” the vfx vet told Variety.  “It’s really about creating experiences, »

Sleepy Hollow Recap: Is There a Mrs. Kindred?

19 February 2016 6:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

An ancillary member of Team Wtf is back in this week’s Sleepy Hollow, and while his return is clunky, everything that surrounds it is very promising, indeed.

In other words, think of the hour in terms of Adele’s troubled performance on Monday’s Grammys, where The Kindred is a discordant microphone bloop on the piano strings… but the rest of the episode is buttery goodness that warms you from the inside and leaves you wanting more.

Because if Ben Franklin’s Frankenstein becoming sentient — and really getting into collages (?!) — is what it takes for Abbie and Ichabod to »

Tisca gets sassy for the “write” cause!

3 February 2016 1:14 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The year has begun on a winning note for Tisca Chopra! After wowing Bollywood and bagging a much-coveted award for her powerful performance in Rahasya, the actress is now set to make her mark as a writer. The actress recently attended the prestigious Jaipur Literature Festival as a Guest of Honour to launch a book she has written one story in,  Walking Towards Ourselves on 23 January, 2016.

The book – an anthology of stories by 12 prolific Indian women writers – is Tisca’s second book after ‘Acting Smart’. Thrilled with the book being launched at the Lit-Fest, Tisca shares, the book started out as something small, but then snowballed into something bigger. “It’s an exciting time, now that the first copies of the book are out in the world. I’ve been getting enthused feedback already, from those who purchased the initial copies at the Jaipur Lit Fest,” says Tisca.

Sundance: A24 Lands Daniel Radcliffe Corpse Movie ‘Swiss Army Man’ (Exclusive)

29 January 2016 3:08 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A24 has landed North American distribution rights to “Swiss Army Man,” starring Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano, Variety has learned.

Several distributors had bid on and were circling the project. A24, which landed the film in the low seven-figure range, will give “Swiss Army Man” a robust theatrical release over the summer.

The film premiered at Sundance last Friday, where it became one of the festival’s most talked-about titles. The story about a man (Dano) who comes across a corpse (Radcliffe) that comes to life divided audiences. But it also received standing ovations in later screenings and good reviews from critics who liked the offbeat directorial debut from the music video duo Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert.

“Imagine ‘Cast Away’ meets ‘Weekend at Bernie’s,’ as directed by Michel Gondry,” wrote Variety chief international critic Peter Debruge. “The result represents not just independent cinema, but an emerging strand of »
