‘All I See Is You’ Trailer: Blake Lively Witnesses A New Reality

In last year’s “The Ticket,” Dan Stevens plays a blind man, who wakes up one morning with the miraculous gift of sight. However, his ability to see the world with fresh eyes, soon finds him giving in to his selfish desires and ambitions. Now comes “All I See Is You,” another tale where the blind can see, but one with a much different outcome.

Blake Lively and Jason Clarke star in the new film by Marc Forster (“Monster’s Ball,” “World War Z“), which follows a young woman who realizes all is not what it seems when she gains her vision, and witnesses the truth behind her life.

From Michelle Dockery to Joanne Froggatt, Where to Catch the ‘Downton Abbey’ Cast This Fall

Nearly two years after Downton Abbey went off the air, most of the beloved ensemble cast is back in action on screen and stage, with Michelle Dockery, Dan Stevens and Joanne Froggatt leading several high-profile projects coming out this fall.

2017 Fall Preview: Et's Complete Coverage

Even though the period drama ended in 2015, this year can definitely be dubbed “2017: Life After Abbey.” And to think, all we care about is a Downton Abbey movie!

Check out what’s coming up (and highlights of a few things you may have missed):

Dockery, aka Lady Mary, was one of the first cast members out of the gates with a decidedly un-Downton-like character, playing con artist and recovering drug addict Letty Raines on TNT’s Good Behavior. “I was very fortunate when it came along,” Dockery told Et. “I wasn’t

‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’ Trailer: Dan Stevens Finishes His Stellar Year As Charles Dickens

‘The Man Who Invented Christmas’ Trailer: Dan Stevens Finishes His Stellar Year As Charles Dickens
Dan Stevens has been everywhere this year, from Hollywood blockbusters like “Beauty and the Beast” to indies such as “The Ticket” and acclaimed television dramas like FX’s “Legion.” The English actor’s banner year wouldn’t be complete with at least one fall project, and so we have “The Man Who Invented Christmas” set for release this November.

Stevens stars as famed author Charles Dickens in the story of the six weeks in which he brought “A Christmas Carol” to life. Dickens was coming off of three poorly received novels at the time, and every major publisher rejected his pitch for a Christmas-themed tale. The author needed a hit to make ends meat for his family and revive his career, and little did he know a miracle was in store.

Exclusive: Dan Stevens Embraces the Unknown to Bring ‘Legion’ to Life

Exclusive: Dan Stevens Embraces the Unknown to Bring ‘Legion’ to Life
Dan Stevens has a lot to be grateful for.

Previously best known for playing Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey, the culmination of his work in the five years since leaving the Masterpiece series has come to fruition as the actor leads back-to-back high-profile projects, most notably Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast and the FX X-men series Legion. The former dominated the box office, taking in $1.2 billion worldwide, while the latter debuted to critical acclaim and has since earned considerable Emmy buzz. The success of those two projects, coupled with the releases of Colossal with Anne Hathaway, Kill Switch, The Ticket and the Tribeca Film Festival debut of Permission, not only makes Stevens feel like the man of the hour, but also makes Crawley seem like a distant memory.

“I've felt like I've grown so much as an actor,” Stevens tells Et of the opportunity to showcase a transformation from lord and lover to a multifaceted

‘Kill Switch’ Teaser Trailer: Dan Stevens Stars in Apocalyptic Sci-Fi Thriller — Watch
Dan Stevens is everywhere these days. The star of this year’s “Colossal” and “Beauty and the Beast” will appear next in “Kill Switch,” the sci-fi action film from first-time feature director Tim Smit. In the movie, Stevens stars as Will Porter, a pilot who battles to save his family (and the planet) after an experiment for unlimited energy goes drastically wrong. Charity Wakefield and Bérénice Marlohe (“Skyfall”) co-star.

Smit is a visual effects supervisor who also did the visual effects for “Kill Switch,” which looks at times like a cross between “District 9” and a video game movie. Saban Films acquired the North American distribution rights to the movie out of the Berlin Film Festival when it was still called “Redivider.” The movie is based on a short film of Smit’s

The Dinner: Director Oren Moverman Serves Up a Compelling Drama

Filmmaker Oren Moverman has never shied away from tackling difficult, seemingly impossible material to adapt to film with some of his writing work including the screenplays for Todd Haynes’ I’m Not There and the equally intriguing Brian Wilson biopic, Love and Mercy.

As a director and producer he’s followed suit with his 2nd film Rampart starring Woody Harrelson as an L.A. police officer with questionable motives, followed by a meditative look at homelessness with Richard Gere in Time Out of Mind.

For his latest movie, The Dinner, Moverman adapts Dutch author Herman Koch’s novel, which on the surface is about a dinner between two related couples with all the requisite food porn. As it progresses, it explores a variety of topics including mental illness and the battle of Gettysburg.

At the core of the film is Steve Coogan and Richard Gere playing brothers, the former a history professor,

'A Quiet Passion' Review: Cynthia Nixon Shines as Emily Dickinson

'A Quiet Passion' Review: Cynthia Nixon Shines as Emily Dickinson
The Furious 8 crowd is advised to run for the hills. Terence Davies is a poet of cinema, of images, sounds and rhythms that define a life. Davies films move at a pace demanded by the material, not fidgety audiences. His remarkable debut features – 1988's Distant Voices, Still Lives and 1992's The Long Day Closes – are drawn from his own growing up experiences as the youngest of 10 children in a working-class Catholic family in Liverpool. To deal with an abusive father, he escaped into music and movies.

'Chewing Gum': Meet the Mastermind Behind Netflix's Sex-Obsessed Britcom
Michaela Coel isn't afraid of being uncomfortable. And she certainly isn't afraid to make you feel uncomfortable. "I'm way too honest," she admits, calling in from the U.K. "It can backfire. I think you could do another kind of comedy like this that's not awkward." There's a momentary silence. "But I don't know how to do that."

As the creator, writer and star of the British sitcom Chewing Gum, Coel has channeled her particular strain of cringe-comedy into one young woman's carnal-knowledge coming-of-age nightmare. The show's revolves around Tracey Gordon,

'Norman' Review: Richard Gere's Political Fixer Drama Is a Career High

'Norman' Review: Richard Gere's Political Fixer Drama Is a Career High
The subtitle for this compulsively watchable film is The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer. It’s a mouthful. But Norman, written and directed by American-born Israeli Joseph Cedar (Footnote) in his first English-language film, is a spellbinder that features Richard Gere in one of his best performances ever.

The American Gigolo star alters his movie-star looks to play Norman Oppenheimer, a schlubby loser who’s termed a "generous Jew" by the people he helps. Roaming the streets of New York in the same cap and

There are few words that can kill a film quicker than cute – just say to yourself, "Gosh, what a cute movie that was," and you can practically feel the inside of your mouth lined with a thin, granular film of Nutra-Sweet. It's one thing, of course, to plunk down cash to watch grumpy old coots and/or kids say the darnedest things, or bask in the cinematic equivalent of a puppy licking a baby's head.

Weekly Update for April 7: Women Centric, Directed, and Written Films Playing Near You

Films About Women Opening This Week“Their Finest

Their Finest — Directed by Lone Scherfig; Written by Gaby Chiappe

Their Finest” sees Gemma Arterton as Catrin, a young woman hired to write lines for women in British war propaganda movies. It’s a movie within a movie dealing with gender roles in the ’40s that at times feels all-too-relevant. Catrin’s paid less, she’s treated like a second class citizen, yet she endears herself to the operation which is vital to the morale of the British citizens during the war. Arterton, one of the finest young actresses working, infuses Catrin with some serious spunk in her endeavor to be taken seriously. (Melissa Silverstein)

Gloria (Anne Hathaway) is a mess. She gets kicked out of the apartment she shares with her boyfriend (Dan Stevens) — which served as a way station for her partying friends — and she winds up on the floor of her childhood house in the town everyone tries to escape from. She re-meets a childhood friend (Jason Sudeikis), starts to work in his bar, and then discovers that she is fueling a Godzilla-like monster wreaking havoc on Seoul, South Korea. The premise is crazy, but the movie works. There is a twist, which I won’t reveal, that illuminates a great gender discussion and sets Gloria on the path to taking her life back.

‘Thelma’ Exclusive First Look: Joachim Trier Goes Supernatural in Lesbian Love Story — Watch

‘Thelma’ Exclusive First Look: Joachim Trier Goes Supernatural in Lesbian Love Story — Watch
Love is a weird enough thing on its own, but things can get especially strange if you find out you have supernatural powers because of said emotion. That’t the plot of Joachim Trier’s upcoming thriller, “Thelma.”

In the film, a young Norwegian student moves to Oslo and falls in love with a beautiful classmate. At the same time, she begins to notice her own mystifying and inexplicable connection to the supernatural. It’s a decidedly different direction for the filmmaker behind such indie favorites as “Reprise” and “Oslo, August 31st,” one who is best known for his beautifully humanistic films.

And yet Trier has always valued emotion and personal experience, putting feeling at the forefront of all his features, so why not twist that into something new for his fourth feature? If our exclusive first look is to be believed, the final product promises to trade in emotion

Smurfs & Gramps Take One Last Swing At Box Office -- The Weekend Warrior

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out.

Three New Movies May Have Trouble Making Much of a Mark

After a couple impressive March weekends with one new box office record, and a couple impressive openings, we’re now into April, and of the new movies, there just doesn’t seem like anything can defeat last week’s powerful duo of DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby--which exceeded all predictions with $49 million, taking the top spot from Beauty and the Beast. Ghost in the Shell didn’t even do as well as I thought it may, opening with just $19 million, those late reviews helping to kill its weekend.

Sony Pictures Animation are giving the loveable blue Smurfs a third go at American audiences with The Smurfs: The Lost Village (Sony), after two previous movies,

'Going in Style' Review: Remake of Cute-Coot Crime Comedy Could Use Some Viagra
If you want to hang with a trio of old-coot charmers, you could do worse than Going in Style, a comic softball that, for the price of a movie ticket, puts you in the pleasurable company of Morgan Freeman, 79, Alan Arkin, 83, and Michael Caine, 84. The movie is no bargain, but the actors keep delivering dividends.

Constructed from the blueprint set in 1979 by director Martin Brest and now-deceased stars George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg, this remake is the same tired piffle about three Brooklyn-based seniors who decide to rob a bank.

Dan Stevens is having a bit of a moment. In February, you could see him in Legion, FX's stellar, must-see Marvel TV series in which the 34-year-old English actor plays a troubled young man who, despite having lived in a mental institution since his teens, discovers that he's not really schizophrenic.
