New UK Trailer for Chappie starring Hugh Jackman

15 January 2015 5:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Following the second trailer last week, a new UK preview of Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie has been released and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.

Chappie is set for release on March 6th 2015 with Blomkamp directing a cast that includes Hugh Jackman (X-Men: Days of Future Past »

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming comedy sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, which we have for you below after the official synopsis…

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy) have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the »

Here's the synopsis for the sequel, courtesy of Fox Searchlight: "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it's making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai).  Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only »

Watch: Second Best Trailer for 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel'

8 January 2015 2:47 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Alright, so admittedly the headline you see above is a bit of a fib: I haven't yet watched a single trailer for the sequel to Fox Searchlight's 2012 breakout hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, so referring to it as "second best" isn't exactly fair. However, it was a chance to draw attention to the partly-absurd, partly-witty title of the upcoming film, so why not live a little and just run with me here, yeahc For those of you not in the know, yes, there is a sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, yes, it is called The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and yes, it is hitting theaters very, very soon, March 6 to be precise. I'm not entirely sure the intent regarding the title, whether it is a riff on hotel owner Sonny Kapoor's (Dev Patel) general lack of business knowledge -- why would you refer to your next »

See Eddie Redmayne Relive His Horrible Hobbit Audition

5 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Just like Harry Potter and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Peter Jackson's Hobbit franchise is essentially a social service that provides much-needed income for working British actors. But despite having a fairly successful career, Eddie Redmayne has not managed to appear in any of the Hobbit trilogy's 513 minutes. What's wrong with him? As Redmayne revealed on The Graham Norton Show last week, his absence can be traced back to one particularly terrible audition. (At least he made Anna Kendrick laugh.) Convincing Stephen Hawking to fight a dragon remains Redmayne's best shot at getting a trilogy. »
