Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Midnight Special. Directed by Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter), the sci-fi thriller stars Michael Shannon as a father who goes on the run from religious extremists and local cops in order to protect his young son who has unique abilities. Nichols is a very talented filmmaker and I love that he's taking a chance with material that is essentially in the superhero genre. The film looks like a cool throwback to science fiction from the '70s and '80s in the vein of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Starman. Throw in Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver and Sam Shepard and this looks very intriguing. Midnight Special opens March 18, 2016.
Zoolander 2 Trailer
Paramount Pictures has released the first feature-length trailer for Zoolander 2 or 2oolander as it's known in the trailer. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return as male models who are faced with the reality that they may be getting a little too old to be walking the runway. But when a secret agent (Penelope Cruz) recruits them to help track down a killer who's knocking off other beautiful people, they must answer the call. The cast that they've assembled for this is amazing. Benedict Cumberbatch looks unrecognizable as All, an androgynous supermodel and throw in the insanely brilliant Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell and you have the makings of a great comedy sequel. Zoolander 2 opens next year.
The Divergent Series: Allegiant Trailer
Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment have released a new trailer for Allegiant, the third entry in the Divergent series. Shailene Woodley stars as well as Theo James, Miles Teller and Ansel Elgort returning. I've never seen any of the Divergent movies and I don't really care to. The whole thing seems like a discount Hunger Games story. And yet they make just enough money to keep going and somehow getting the likes of Naomi Watts and Jeff Daniels to appear in them. The Divergent Series: Allegiant opens March 18, 2016.
