“First Man” Trailer showcases an early Academy Award frontrunner

On Friday night, the world got their first look at a potential Best Picture possibility when First Man debuted its Trailer. This film, given its pedigree, more or less has to be at the very top of any early set of Oscar predictions. The follow up to La La Land from filmmaker Damien Chazelle pairs him again with Ryan Gosling, this time for a prestige biopic. If anything though, it seems like he’s going back to his Whiplash roots. That combination alone would make any movie worth seeing, but this is something else. You can see the Trailer below, but first, some discussion of the potential Academy Award favorite is in order. The film is a biopic of Neil Armstrong, arguably the world’s most famous astronaut. Here is the official synopsis that Universal Pictures has provided: “On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land,

First Man Poster with Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong, First Trailer Drops Tonight

This could be one of the early Oscar contenders for 2018, reuniting Gosling with writer-director Damien Chazelle, after their work together on 2016 Best Picture nominee La La Land. While Gosling certainly won't be dancing through the streets of L.A. in this drama, it could put him at the forefront of the Oscar race once again.

On the heels of their six-time Academy Award-winning smash, La La Land, Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle and star Ryan Gosling reteam for Universal Pictures' First Man, the riveting story of Nasa's mission to land a man on the moon, focusing on Neil Armstrong and the years 1961-1969.

First Man Trailer Sends Ryan Gosling to the Moon as Neil Armstrong

Following the first poster drop earlier today, Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for First Man. Ryan Gosling stars as American icon Neil Armstrong, set in the decade as he prepares to become the first man in human history to set foot on the moon. This trailer was first aired on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight before it arrived online for all to see.

Ryan Gosling takes on First Man, based on the book First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by author James R. Hansen, which was published by Simon & Schuster in 2005. The author was a history professor at Auburn University, who first wrote to Armstrong in 1999, asking if he could write a biography about him. Armstrong replied that he was just too busy at the time, adding that he had already turned down offers from prominent authors such as Stephen Ambrose and James A. Michener before him.

Widows Trailer Is the Gritty Heist Movie of Your Dreams

Widows Trailer Is the Gritty Heist Movie of Your Dreams
The first trailer for Widows is here. Steve McQueen made a big name for himself in Hollywood with 2013's 12 Years a Slave. The movie went on to win the Oscar for Best Picture that year and earned McQueen a nomination in the category of Best Director. He's taken some time to choose his next directorial effort carefully and it looks to be vastly different than what we might have expected, but no less fascinating. The first footage for Widows is action-packed and promises to be one of the most hotly-anticipated movies coming down the pipeline later this year.

There is so much to process in this first trailer. Essentially, this is a gritty heist movie that sees a team led by Viola Davis and a bunch of other awesome women. Unlike Ocean's 8, however, this girl gang is reluctantly pulled into the crime life and this is going to

Viola Davis Assembles a Fierce Criminal Team in First ‘Widows’ Trailer

Fox has dropped the first trailer for “Widows” with an intense Viola Davis dominating as a robbery crew leader.

The film, based on the British miniseries of the same name, opens with four armed thieves being killed during a robbery. Their surviving widows come together to try to deal with the debt left behind from the failed job with Davis’ character as the leader — and in full-body armor.

Set in contemporary Chicago, the other crew members are portrayed by Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez and Cynthia Erivo. “Widows” also stars Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Robert Duvall,

Viola Davis Plans a Heist in First Trailer for Steve McQueen’s ‘Widows’

The heist movie has been a tried-and-true subgenre since the early days of filmmaking, but if there’s one filmmaker in today’s Hollywood that can put a unique spin on it, that would certainly be Steve McQueen.

May We All One Day Be as Happy as Leo Blissfully Running to Catch a Cab in NYC
Leonardo DiCaprio is having what I like to call "the Summer of Me," which basically means he's putting himself first to indulge and enjoy the hell out of life. So far this Summer we've seen him invent a fun new way to carry a bag, creatively wrap a towel around his lovely body, vacation with Bff Kate Winslet, and vape in the sunshine, but his latest outing is honestly our favorite of them all. The actor was spotted having a boys' day out in New York City on Thursday with his friend Lukas Haas. Not only did the pair have an actual race to see who could catch a cab first, but Leo also had Lukas take photos of him outside a yogurt shop (maybe Leo has a secret street style Instagram account we don't know about?). These pictures will make you way too happy, so do yourself a favor

Shirtless Leonardo DiCaprio Serves Poolside Glamour With Kate Winslet in St.-Tropez
Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet reunited for a charity gala in St.-Tropez, France, last month, and during their downtime, the BFFs lounged by the pool at Leo's villa with a few other friends, including Tobey Maguire, Kevin Connolly, and Lukas Haas. Leo went shirtless in a pair of swim trunks for the pool day, while Kate covered up her neon bikini with a sheer dress. The Oscar winners were spotted chatting it up and sharing a hug, and Leo also made sure to strike a few poses between hitting the vape pen and checking his cell phone for text messages from models (we assume). It was during this same getaway that Leo debuted a Project Runway-worthy beach towel design, which we couldn't be more thankful for. Speaking of models, Leo has reportedly been busy romancing yet another stunner since his pool day with Kate. This week, Page Six
