Starz Digital has released the first trailer for My Blind Brother. The romantic comedy stars Adam Scott as a blind athlete who relies on his brother (Nick Kroll) to help him. But when the two fall for the same girl (Jenny Slate), their sibling rivalry reaches new heights. This is a great concept for a rom-com and seeing Scott, Kroll and Slate play off of one another appears to be worth the price of admission alone. My Blind Brother opens September 23.
Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions have released the first trailer for Manchester by the Sea. Directed by Kenneth Lonergan (You Can Count on Me, Margaret), the film stars Casey Affleck as a janitor who must return to his hometown of Manchester when he receives word that his brother (Kyle Chandler) has died. Sea received rave reviews at Sundance this year and it's an early contender for multiple Oscar nominations. Having seen the trailer, the film looks surprisingly funny and heartfelt and Affleck and Michelle Williams appear to be as strong as ever. Manchester by the Sea opens in select theaters November 18.
Lionsgate has released a new trailer for La La Land. Directed by Damien Chazelle (Whiplash), the film revolves around a romance between a musician (Ryan Gosling) and a struggling actress (Emma Stone). This is the first original musical released since 1992 and like the first trailer, this new one is both magical and melancholy. We got to hear Gosling's singing abilities in the first trailer and this one shows off Stone's pipes. La La Land arrives in theaters December 16.
