‘Big Hero 6’ follows a brilliant robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada, who finds himself in the grips of a criminal plot that threatens to destroy the fast-paced, high-tech city of San Fransokyo. With the help of his closest companion — a robot named Baymax — Hiro joins forces with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters on a mission to save their city.

While he’s understandably cryptic considering the secrecy surrounding ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,’ Jesse Eisenberg recently opened up briefly to Total Film about his incarnation as the iconic villain, Lex Luthor. “There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own. I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create a real psychology behind what is, perhaps, in a comic book, a less than totally modern psychology. I can only say I’ve been asked to play an interesting role. A complicated, challenging person.”
Antoine Fuqua’s Denzel Washington-led ‘The Equalizer’ is based on the 1980s TV show that starred Edward Woodward as the title character. In this movie version Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened.
StudioCanal has unveiled this second teaser trailer for ‘Shaun the Sheep the Movie,’ which lands in the UK on February 6th, 2015 and April 24th, 2015 in the US. From Aardman, the creators of ‘Wallace & Gromit’ and ‘Chicken Run,’ comes the highly anticipated big screen debut of Shaun the Sheep. When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. Shaun’s mischief accidentally causes the Farmer to be taken away from the farm, so it’s up to Shaun and the flock to travel to the Big City to rescue him.
First seen in the Oscar-winning short film ‘A Close Shave,’ the world’s most famous sheep and his flock have been enthralling TV audiences in over 170 countries and has proved to be one of the studio’s most popular and endearing characters.
After premiering yesterday at Venice Film Festival to stellar reviews, this first clip has arrived online from the Andrew Garfield and Michael Shannon-led ’99 Homes,’ which is directed by Ramin Bahrani, the award-winning filmmaker behind ‘Man Push Cart.’ The script, which Bahrani wrote, tackles recent economic headlines and sees Garfield play an unemployed construction worked who’s desperate to save his family home. Garfield’s character joins an unscrupulous realtor in the dirty business of foreclosing on the disenfranchised, and while his financial worries disappear, his conscience begins to break him down. Shannon plays the broker.
Poster For Jon Stewart’s Directorial Debut ‘Rosewater’ – Starring Gael Garcia Bernal As Maziar Bahari
Closely following the release of the film’s first trailer (which you can view below), Open Road Films has debuted this poster for ‘Rosewater,’ Jon Stewart’s much anticipated feature directorial debut. Stewart penned the script, which is adapted from Maziar Bahari’s 2011 book ‘Then They Came For Me: A Family’s Story of Love, Captivity and Survival,’ which he co-wrote with Aimee Molloy. Gael Garcia Bernal (Amores Perros, The Motorcycle Diaries) is playing Bahari.
‘Rosewater’ follows Maziar Bahari, a BBC journalist who leaves his pregnant fiancé behind in London while he travels to Iran to spend a week covering the country’s 2009 presidential elections. Bahari was soon arrested by Revolutionary Guard police, and he winds up spending 118 days in a notorious Iranian prison where he is brutally interrogated by a man whose defining characteristic is the smell of rosewater. In a twist of fate, Bahari’s appearance on ‘The Daily Show’ was used against him when he was accused of being a spy. Stewart and ‘The Daily Show’ covered Bahari’s saga nightly and had the journalist appear on the show to talk about his ordeal once he was released from prison.
