A new promo for Hector and the Search for Happiness shows Pegg as a young London psychiatrist who’s married to Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Pride and Prejudice)—yet somehow deeply unfulfilled. So Hector decides to jet around the world, asking strangers in foreign countries to explain what makes them smile. The whole thing bears a resemblance to a certain 2010 film about another soul-searching world traveler. (Both movies are also based on books.) Is Simon Pegg the British male Julia Roberts? Will he also be doing gender-flipped takes on Pretty Woman and Erin Brockovich? Sadly, Hector and the Search for Happiness doesn’t answer these important questions—at least not in this trailer.

Reese Witherspoon would like another Oscar—so she dyed her hair Serious Brown and channeled Erin Brockovich by way of The Blind Side for her latest movie, The Good Lie. (As the trailer quickly tells you, The Good Lie is brought to us by the same producers as Sandra Bullock’s football drama.)
Based on the true story of an out-of-her-element American woman who takes in four Sudanese “Lost Boys” refugees, the film costars House of Cards‘ Corey Stoll in what looks to be the Aaron Eckhart role and boasts this tagline: “Miracles are made by people who refuse to stop believing.”
The Good Lie is just one of a few Serious Projects Witherspoon has lined up for the fall. She’ll also star in the adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s bestselling memoir Wild, and is producing the highly-anticipated adaptation of Gone Girl.
Watch the trailer for The Good Lie below: READ FULL STORY
We’ve seen complicated father-son relationships on the big screen before, but Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr. offer a new perspective on an old story in The Judge.
Downey plays fast-and-loose defense attorney Hank Palmer, who heads home when his mom dies only to stick around to defend his dad, small-town judge Joseph Palmer (Duvall), in a murder case.
“His father is a pillar of the community. Everybody knows a dad like the judge,” Downey told EW’s Anthony Breznican earlier this month. “Every community has one, and every family has either heard of or been under that kind of patriarchy. It’s this very American story. But it’s also a story about family, and reconciliation, and law, and justice.”
Forty years after it scared the pants off America — and territories beyond — Tobe Hooper’s ultimate scare machine The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is returning to the big screen this summer in freshly restored form. Hooper himself worked on the restoration and recently told Entertainment Weekly “the film works as well, if not better, than it originally did.” READ FULL STORY
Wouldn’t it be great if Eminem provided the music to an action movie? The trailer for The Equalizer gives us a look into this beautiful, beautiful fantasy, featuring a preview of a new collaboration between the artist and Sia.
But the trailer for The Equalizer isn’t short on its own thrills. Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he’s put his violent past behind him until he’s drawn into protecting Teri (Chloe Grace Moretz). The old fighting instincts spring back and Washington finds himself righting wrongs, fighting for the weak, and getting on the wrong side of some Russian gangsters. READ FULL STORY
Reclusive street artist Banksy continues to play games.
On Wednesday, the artist posted a three minute clip (titled “Better Out Than In — the movie”) about his time as a self-proclaimed “Artist in Residence” in New York last October. Banksy’s stint in the city inspired both acclaim and derision as the artist’s installations provoked what his video calls a “city-wide, full-contact game of hide and seek.”
Seth Rogen and James Franco are trading the apocalypse for North Korea.
The duo’s latest comedy, The Interview, finds the stars playing a bumbling journalist (Franco) and his producer (Rogen). When it’s discovered that Kim Jong Un (Randall Park) is a fan of theirs, the two score an interview — but then the CIA asks them to assassinate Jong Un, a job they’re grossly unequipped to handle.
Some might think the goofy action-comedy’s plot sounds like an exaggerated version of what’s going on with Jong Un’s BFF Dennis Rodman. But as Franco previously explained, the movie was in the works before Rodman’s escapades.
“[Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg] wrote a version of this script before Rodman went to North Korea,” Franco told EW. “And then as this movie went into pre-production, Rodman started going over there. So it was a very strange coincidence that I think ultimately will make this movie somehow more legitimate. Our movie is already so crazy, but things like that are actually kind of happening — so now it isn’t that out there. It’ll just make our movie resonate in different ways. It’ll become a few steps away from just being an outrageous comedy towards, I guess, [being] social satire or something.”
Watch the trailer — which features Lizzy Caplan (Freaks and Geeks reunion!) explaining why Jong Un is so dangerous — below: READ FULL STORY
Penguins are the closest things the animal kingdom has to James Bond; they’re already in tuxedos.
And in the trailer for The Penguins of Madagascar, the penguins — who have appeared in the previous Madagascar movies — get help from the most debonair of the humans: Benedict Cumberbatch, providing the voice of a superspy wolf Agent Classified. Though given the penguins’ penchant for messing around (and eating cheesy puffs at the wrong time), it doesn’t seem like the alliance will be the most easy-going. READ FULL STORY
Things are looking bleak for all of our antiheroes in the latest trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Co-directors Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez have been coy about the plot details so far — especially since two of the four stories are Miller originals, but now it seems they’re ready to tease specifics — including a ghost version of John Hartigan (Bruce Willis), who was killed off in the first film. Here, his presence seems to be driving Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) to vengeance (and madness). We also get a glimpse into Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s mysterious, cocky gambler Johnny and how things devolve quickly after he decides to challenge Senator Roark (Powers Boothe) to a game of cards.
It’s the most revealing trailer yet, and no, we’re not just talking about the scantily clad femmes fatales. READ FULL STORY
Fed up with Hollywood’s fondness for CGI? Nostalgic for the days of practical effects-heavy horror movies like John Carpenter’s The Thing and the early Alien movies? Then you’re going to want to check out the trailer for the new, Lance Henriksen-starring creature feature Harbinger Down.
