Brie Larson has been kicking around for a while now, appearing in films like 21 Jump Street, Short Term 12 and Don Jon. However, it’s her role as Amy Schumer’s sister in Trainwreck that’s putting the spotlight on the talented 25-year-old actress. Her star will no doubt rise even more after people see her in Room. It’s been selected to be shown in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.

Larson plays a woman named Ma who is being held captive with her five-year-old son in a single small room for years. The film is based on the best-selling novel by Emma Donoghue. Joan Allen and William H. Macy also star. Room is schedule for a limited release on October 16, then nationwide on November 8.

Check out the haunting and heartbreaking trailer below. Based on the short clip, it’s clear Brie will be scoring some critics awards and perhaps some Oscar attention.

christina-applegate-legally-blonde

It’s hard to imagine anyone else besides Reese Witherspoon teaching the world the ‘Bend and Snap,’ but it almost happened. While promoting her new film Vacation, Christina Applegate revealed she received the script after recently wrapping up Married… With Children. Understandably, she was hesitant to play another ditzy blonde.

With the 2001 comedy becoming a huge hit and spawning a sequel and musical adaptation, not surprisingly, she regrets that decision. “What a stupid move that was, right?” she said.

Watch the short interview with Entertainment Tonight below to hear her thoughts on Witherspoon taking over and more.

antonio-banderas-the-33-movie-trailer

Who could forget that image of 33 men hoisted up one-by-one in a missile-like escape capsule after being trapped 69 days in a collapsed mine. The harrowing tale suffered by those Chilean miners is being told on the big screen in The 33.

Antonio Banderas headlines the cast as Mario “Super Mario” Sepúlveda, “the face of the public” for the miners, who made daily video logs to assure the public that they were alright. Joining him in the moving film are Lou Diamond Phillips, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, Gabriel Byrne and James Brolin.

The 33 heads into theaters on November 13, 2015. Check out the emotional trailer below. I wasn’t expecting to well up, but I did. Having A Great Big World’s “Say Something” in the background as the trailer plays had me almost tearing up. Be sure to have a tissue close by.

The 33 Movie Synopsis

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out. A story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up. Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—“The 33” reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon.

night-before-movie-trailer

Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie play lifelong friends in The Night Before. After years of getting together for Christmas Eve, they decide to end their annual tradition. For their swan song they search out for the ultimate Christmas party in New York City.

If you liked Knocked Up, Neighbors and This Is The End, this holiday comedy is for you. Rogen pretty much plays the same character as in those aforementioned films.

Jonathan Levine who directed Gordon-Levitt and Rogen in the cancer film 50/50 reunites with them but for a more fun frivolous romp. The Night Before jingles into theaters on November 25 just in time for the holiday season.

Mindy Kaling, Lizzy Caplan and Miley Cyrus also appear in the film. The latter makes a brief cameo to sing “Wrecking Ball” at a karaoke bar. Check out the red band trailer below.

staten-island-summer-trailer

As with any Lorne Michaels-produced film, Staten Island Summer features a handful of current and past Saturday Night Live cast members. Will Forte, Bobby Moynihan, Fred Armisen, Cecily Strong and Colin Jost are among those who appear in the comedy film. Jost played double duty and also wrote the screenplay.

Staten Island Summer isn’t anything groundbreaking but looks like it’ll provide a few laughs. It’s giving me a Porky’s meets American Pie type of vibe. Two teenage buddies and their motley crew throw one last huge bash before heading off to college. Naturally, a hot girl that one friend has been crushin’ on for years is the ultimate conquest. Ashley Greene plays the unattainable girl-next-door.

Staten Island Summer arrives on Netflix on July 30, but is already available for digital download. Check out the trailer below.

While one young adult dystopian franchise is ending, The Hunger Games, another one is just ramping up. The next chapter of James Dashner’s dystopian sci-fi saga, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, hits theaters on September 18.

The first film, made for just $34 million, was a blockbuster hit, earning $340.8 million worldwide. The sequel should match its performance, if not exceed it. The studio certainly feels bullish about its potential. It’s clear they shelled out more cash for the second instalment. The action scenes look tense and harrowing.

Movie Synopsis
Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.

Joining Dylan O’Brien for the second go-round include Ki Hong Lee, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson, Rosa Salazar, Aidan Gillen and Giancarlo Esposito. Check out the exciting new trailer below.

Holy Knights of the Roundtable Batman!!! How hot does Charlie Hunnam look on the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. I could rub his scruffy blond beard all over me all night long. And don’t even get me started on his ‘excalibur‘ ;)

The 35-year-old actor plays King Arthur in Guy Ritchie’s upcoming epic adventure film. The project boasts an all-star cast including Djimon Hounsou, Eric Bana, Jude Law and Aiden Gillen. It’s set to gallop into theaters on July 22, 2016.

“He’s a little bit rough around the edges, but he’s basically a survivor. He’s a hustler,” the 35-year-old actor told the EW. “He’s a street kid. There’s definitely a harder edge to him than people would imagine. It’s sort of classic Guy Ritchie stuff.”

Photographer Marc Hom snapped the Sons of Anarchy stud on set during production. Check out more pics below, along with a behind-the-scenes video.

hunger-games-mockingjay-part-2-trailer

Lionsgate wowed Comic-Con attendees with a thrilling new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2. Two weeks later, those who weren’t lucky enough to attend the annual San Diego event finally get to see for themselves what the buzz was all about. The clip certainly lives up to all the hype.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Movie Synopsis

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin], and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

This final chapter looks like it’s going to be action-packed from the get-go. Thank God, because I was bored out of my mind watching Part 1. Am I alone in thinking that? The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 storms into theaters on November 20. Watch the trailer below.
