Videos and Trailers
Magnolia Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for ‘Life Itself,’ the documentary about the life of Roger Ebert directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Steve James (Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters). ‘Life Itself’ premiered to critical acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is set for a July 4th release, followed by an exclusive broadcast on CNN later this year.
Roger Ebert was a much beloved figure and arguably the best-known and most influential movie critic, and his passing in 2013 was deeply felt across the world. Based on his memoir of the same name, ‘Life Itself’ recounts his fascinating and flawed journey – from politicized school newspaperman, to Chicago Sun-Times movie critic, to Pulitzer Prize winner, to television household name, to the miracle of finding love at 50, and finally his “third act” as a major voice on the Internet when he could no longer physically speak.
With the first full trailer set to debut tomorrow, Walt Disney Animation Studios and Marvel have released the above teaser poster and the following trailer sneak peek for ‘Big Hero 6.’ The film 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. Featuring the voices of TJ Miller, Jamie Chung and Maya Rudolph, ‘Big Hero 6′ is inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name and is set to hit cinemas on November 7th.
