Ryan Gosling is Neil Armstrong in the riveting first trailer for Damien Chazelle’s ‘First Man’

Published

Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Damien Chazelle’s upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic First Man, which finds the Oscar-winning La La Land director reteaming with Ryan Gosling for what will undoubtedly be one of the biggest contenders of the forthcoming awards season when it opens in theaters on October 12.

Based on James R. Hansen’s prizewinning 2005 book, First Man tells the riveting story of NASA’s mission to land on the moon, focusing on Armstrong’s life between the years of 1961 and 1969, and explores the sacrifices and the cost, on both Armstrong and on the nation, of one of the most dangerous missions in history.

“What fascinated me about Neil Armstrong is that he is kind of a mystery,” Chazelle told PEOPLE in an exclusive interview earlier this month. “For someone that accomplished something that is among one of the most famous things that anyone has ever accomplished, the human himself is a little bit of an enigma.”

The film, which was written by Oscar-winning Spotlight and The Post co-writer Josh Singer, stars Gosling as the world-famous astronaut, while The Crown actress Claire Foy plays his wife, Janet Armstrong. Kyle Chandler, Jason Clarke, Patrick Fugit, Ciaran Hinds, Ethan Embry, Shea Whigham, Corey Stoll, and Pablo Schreiber round out the supporting cast.

‘Dumbo’ teaser trailer reveals Tim Burton’s live-action reimagining of the 1941 Disney animated classic

Published

on

Disney has released the first trailer for Tim Burton’s live-action reimagining of Dumbo, the beloved animated classic which first opened in theaters nearly 77 years ago in October of 1941 and picked up an Oscar for best scoring of a musical picture and a nomination for best original song for the iconic “Baby Mine.”

The teaser, which features a dreamy rendition of “Baby Mine” performed by Norweigan singer-songwriter Aurora, finds Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlisting former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.

But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an outstanding comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar little elephant for his larger-than-life entertainment venture known as Dreamland. However, it isn’t long before Holt discovers that, beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

The last time Burton reimagined a beloved animated Disney classic was in 2010 with his live-action version of Alice in Wonderland, which managed to reel in more than $1 billion worldwide, despite receiving fairly mixed reviews from critics that leaned more towards the negative end of the spectrum.

Dumbo, which was written by Ehren Kruger, was produced by Justin Springer, Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder, and Derek Frey (the latter two produced Burton’s previous film, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), and will open in theaters on March 29, 2019.

The demon nun from ‘The Conjuring 2’ is back again in the terrifying first trailer for ‘The Nun’

Published

on

The fifth installment in The Conjuring franchise will arrive in theaters this September and, in an effort to prepare audiences for the fright-fest that awaits them, Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the upcoming next chapter in the horror series, The Nun.

Directed by Corin Hardy, the film will serve as a prequel of sorts to The Conjuring series and takes us back to 1950s Romania where, after a young nun takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, however, they uncover the order’s unholy secret.

Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that we first met in The Conjuring 2 when it was haunting Ed and Lorraine Warren as they helped a single mother of four rid their home of malicious spirits in London in 1977.

Following in the footsteps of her older sister, Vera Farmiga (who plays Lorraine Warren), The Nun stars Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene; Demian Bichir as Father Burke; Jonas Bloquet as local villager Frenchie; Charlotte Hope as Sister Victoria; Ingrid Bisu as Sister Oana; and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her role from The Conjuring 2 as the titular demon nun.

Hardy directed The Nun from a screenplay written by Gary Dauberman, based on a story created by Wan and Dauberman. Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Todd Williams all serve as executive producers on the film, which will open in theaters on September 7.

‘The Little Stranger’ first trailer finds Domhnall Gleeson trapped in a ghost-infested mansion

Published

on

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Lenny Abrahamson’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated 2015 drama Room titled The Little Stranger. The film, which is based on the 2009 gothic novel of the same name by Sarah Waters, stars indie sensation Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter, and Charlotte Rampling.

The Little Stranger follows Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a traveling country doctor. However, when Faraday is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked, during the long hot summer of 1948, things start to go, well, a little bit sideways.

The Hall, which has been home to the Ayres family for more than two hundred years, is now in decline and its inhabitants are being haunted by something much more sinister than just a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely (and how disturbingly) the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

“I wouldn’t say horror,” Gleeson told Digital Spy when asked about the film earlier this month. “It’s a ghost story – a very unsettling psychological ghost story, in a way that I think will be compulsive. There’s an oddness to it. You know like The Others and films like that – there’s something like that about it.”

The Little Stranger will be released by Focus Features on August 31.
