We've already had some of the most sublime and gobsmackingly good trailers this year; from the heavily stylised Stoker trailers, the awe-inspiring Man of Steel trailers to the pulse-pounding Gravity teaser- and now, we have Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street trailer which effectively encompasses all of the above adjectives.
Woody Allen (Annie Hall, Midnight in Paris) is back with a trailer for his new film, Blue Jasmine.
Over the past week, Colombia Pictures have released a full international trailer for the upcoming apocalypse meta-comedy, This is The End. Starring James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Seth Rogen as exaggerated versions of themselves, the comedy sees a celebrity-party at Franco's house being rudely and violently interrupted by the end of the world, forcing the cast into a test of survival. The trailer is rather spoiler-heavy, so if you're trying to remain fresh, just know that it contains a whole host of celebrity cameos – including Michael Cera grab-assing on Rihanna, and Emma Watson robbing the leads of their belonging.
21 Jump Street, the funniest movie of last year, is getting a sequel. For once, this feels like good news, as the new movie will transport Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill's Jenko and Schmidt onto the College scene. A whole new environment, with all new pitfalls and distractions.
Following this summer's Before Midnight, the critically lauded capper to the greatest trilogy in the history of cinema (possibly), director Richard Linklater looks to be returning to past successes once again for his next feature. Abandoning the cozy romance this time for what will hopefully be a spectacularly sprawling spiritual successor to his 1993 ensemble hit Dazed and Confused.
A group of foul-mouthed lads go on a European holiday in search of one thing: sex. They make fun of each other, they mock people’s looks, they are offensive to the locals, they drink too much, and they perv over every attractive woman that crosses their path. So far so The Inbetweeners Movie. But in Come As You Are our sex-crazed lads are Josef, who is blind, Lars, who is confined to a wheelchair because of an aggressive tumour, and Philippe, who is paralysed from the neck down.
The first set images of Mexican director Alejandro González Iñárritu's Birdman – his first foray into comedy - have surfaced online. To a small extent, the film is a case of art imitating life imitating art, with Michael Keaton playing Riggan Thomson, an actor who once played an iconic superhero (the titular Birdman) who then faces a number of crises with his family, his career, and himself all the while trying to mount a Broadway play in order to regain former success.
Whilst doing the rounds for latest film After Earth Will Smith was asked about his feelings on starring in another MIB film.
As if the headache wasn't enough, audiences the world over have been threatened with a spin-off to the hugely successful The Hangover franchise, featuring none other than everyone's' least favourite bit-character, Mr. Chow (Ken Jeong). The final installment of the puzzlingly much-loved trilogy is currently boring audiences in cinemas, and features Jeong's insufferably high-pitched gangbanger in a bigger role than before; much to the films detriment.
Entourage creator, director, producer and sometime star Doug Ellin has signed on to rewrite and possibly direct the unnecessarily green-lit Bad Santa 2.
