The word ‘epic‘ gets thrown a lot these days, but there’s no other way to best describe the new trailer for Macbeth. It’s like Braveheart meets The Dark Knight but with a Bard twist.

Michael Fassbender is the latest actor to portray the iconic Shakespearean tragic hero. Marion Cotillard plays his power-hungry wife, Lady Macbeth. To date, Roman Polanski’s 1971 version remains the most revered adaptation. This one could rival that. At least based on this new trailer.

I love all things William Shakespeare so I’m extremely stoked for this new adaptation. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. Early reviews of the film rave about Fassbender and Cotillard’s performances.

Macbeth will hit selected theaters on December 4. Check out the trailer below.

Tom Hanks was the last man to win back-to-back Best Actor Oscars. Eddie Redmayne, who snagged the award last year for The Theory of Everything, could very well win consecutive statues as well. The 33-year-old actor is mesmerizing in the first trailer for The Danish Girl. At the very least, he’ll score a nomination.

Based on David Ebershoff’s historical novel of the same name, the film tells the story of Lili Elbe who is believed to be the first person to undergo gender confirmation surgery. Born male as Einar Wegener in 1882, Lili transitioned to female in the 1920s with the support of her wife, Gerda played by Alicia Vikander. Oscar buzz is also deafening for her performance as well.

The Danish Girl opens in New York and Los Angeles on November 27, and will expand to additional cities in December. Matthias Schoenaerts, Ben Whisaw and Amber Heard round out the cast. Les Miserables‘ Tom Hooper directed the film. Check out the powerful trailer below.

Bill Murray Rocks The Kasbah In New Comedy

The premise for Rock The Kasbah is absolutely absurd but Bill Murray can sell anything. The 64-year-old actor is in fine form in the upcoming comedy.

Murray plays Richie Lanz who heads to Afghanistan with his last remaining client (Zooey Deschanel). He finds himself stranded in the war-torn country when she steals his money and passport. While there, he discovers a sensational talented young woman who has dreams of becoming the first female contestant on Afghan Star.

One major glitch though. She’s forbidden due to being a woman and is threatened if she attempts. With a motley crew including Kate Hudson, Bruce Willis, Danny McBride and Scott Caan, Bill tries to make the young singer’s dreams come true.

The Barry Levinson-directed film heads into theaters on October 23. Check out the new trailer below.

Christmas is still several months away but don’t inform my local Costco that. I nearly gasped as I saw yuletide decorations en route to the rotisserie chickens the other day. I mean c’mon, Labor Day hasn’t even happened yet.

If Costco is already prepping for the holiday season, naturally Hollywood is gearing up as well. The first trailer for Love The Coopers recently debuted. The family movie appears not to stray too far away from your typical holiday comedy, but the talent involved might make it worth checking out.

The star-studded cast includes Olivia Wilde, Ed Helms, Amanda Seyfried, Diane Keaton, John Goodman, Marisa Tomei and June Squibb. Rising star and hottie Jake Lacy (the soldier above) also appears. Love The Coopers checks into theaters on November 13. Check out the trailer below.

Love The Coopers Movie Synopsis

“The Cooper clan as four generations of extended family come together for their annual Christmas Eve celebration. As the evening unfolds, a series of unexpected visitors and unlikely events turn to night upside down, leading them all toward a surprising rediscovery of family bonds and the spirit of the holiday.”

Fueled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, he lives the dream, as he searches for his next hit record. He’ll stop at nothing to further his career.

Rosanna Arquette, James Corden, Craig Roberts and Georgia King round out the cast. Kill Your Friends makes its debut at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and then hits theaters on November 6. Check out the trailer below.

Matt Damon Is Stranded On Mars In ‘The Martian’

In: Donovan, Movies

The pedigree behind this film is beyond ridiculous. Director Ridley Scott has corralled himself a talented and star-studded crew for the sci-fi flick, The Martian, based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Andy Weir. Matt Damon headlines a cast that includes Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Jeff Daniels, Kate Mara, Donald Glover, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sebastian Stan.

The Martian Movie Synopsis

During a manned mission to Mars, Astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is presumed dead after a fierce storm and left behind by his crew. But Watney has survived and finds himself stranded and alone on the hostile planet. With only meager supplies, he must draw upon his ingenuity, wit and spirit to subsist and find a way to signal to Earth that he is alive. Millions of miles away, NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring “the Martian” home, while his crewmates concurrently plot a daring, if not impossible rescue mission. As these stories of incredible bravery unfold, the world comes together to root for Watney’s safe return.

If the film is anything like Scott’s other forays in the genre, I expect it’ll be another blockbuster. Alien and Blade Runner are among my favorite films ever. The Martian lands into theaters on October 2. Check out the new trailer below.
