20th Century Fox has released the long-awaited first trailer for Greg Berlanti’s coming-out teen dramedy Love, Simon starring Nick Robinson, Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg, Miles Heizer, Logan Miller, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Tony Hale.

Based on Becky Albertalli’s acclaimed novel of the same name, Love, Simon follows Simon Spier, a 17-year-old high school student who has yet to tell his family or friends that he’s gay and doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate he’s fallen for online. As you could imagine, resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying, and life-changing for the angsty teen.

“I just saw the best movie of my entire life. I’m sobbing. I can’t wait for you guys to see it,” Albertalli wrote on Twitter after watching an early cut of Love, Simon earlier this year. “It’s funny and relevant and timeless and charming and honest and painful and so romantic,” adding that there is indeed kissing in the film and it is “not half-assed.”

Love, Simon was adapted for the screen by This Is Us writers Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger and was produced by Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen. The film will open in theaters nationwide next year on March 16.

Focus Features has released the first trailer for Boy Erased, the coming-of-age and coming-out drama from writer/director Joel Edgerton, based on the memoir of the same name written by Garrard Conley. The film features an impressive ensemble cast which includes Lucas Hedges, Nicole Kidman, Russell Crowe, and Edgerton.

The story follows Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town who is outed to his parents (Kidman, Crowe) at age 19 and is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.

Boy Erased, which is Edgerton’s second feature film as director following the 2015 sleeper hit The Gift, also stars Cherry Jones, Michael “Flea” Balzary, Xavier Dolan, Troye Sivan, Joe Alwyn, Emily Hinkler, Jesse LaTourette, David Joseph Craig, Théodore Pellerin, Madelyn Cline, and Britton Sear.

“I will always thank Garrard for trusting my passion for his life story,” Edgerton said in a statement last year when it was announced that Focus had acquired worldwide distribution rights to Boy Erased. “I can’t think of a better reason to get behind the camera again.”

Focus is set to release Boy Erased in select theaters just in time for the forthcoming awards season on November 2. You can check out the newly released trailer for the film below.

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for Eli Roth’s adaptation of John Bellairs’ beloved children’s classic The House with a Clock in Its Walls. The film was adapted for the screen by Supernatural creator Eric Kripke and stars Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, and Kyle MacLachlan.

The magical adventure tells the story of 10-year-old Lewis (Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle (Jack Black) in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy facade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.

“I can give you the right books, teach you the right spells, but that last one percent, that’s up to you,” Black’s character tells Lewis, revealing that he is indeed a warlock himself and is willing to teach his nephew the ways of magic.

However, when Lewis’ uncle reveals that the home they reside in used to be owned by a very wicked and powerful warlock named Isaac Izard (MacLachlan), it is up to Lewis, his uncle, and Mrs. Zimmerman (Blanchett), the next-door witch, to destroy the clock once and for all before it does something horrible.

The House with a Clock in its Walls also stars Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams, Lorenza Izzo and Sunny Suljic, and will be released by Universal just in time for the forthcoming Halloween season on September 21.
