Yahoo! Movies has debuted this trailer for J.C. Chandor’s acclaimed survival drama, ‘All Is Lost.’ Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Robert Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.
Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face. ‘All Is Lost’ opens on October 18th.

Warner Bros. Pictures has released this new NSFW trailer for Rawson Thurber’s (Dodgeball) upcoming comedy, ‘We’re The Millers.’ A small-time pot dealer (Jason Sudeikis) hires a phony family as camouflage to bring two metric tons of weed from Mexico to Colorado.

Preferring to keep a low profile for obvious reasons, he learns the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished when he tries to help out some local teens and winds up getting jumped by a trio of gutter punks. Stealing his stash and his cash, they leave him in major debt to his supplier, Brad (Ed Helms).
The 57th BFI London Film Festival send word that this year’s Opening Night will take place on October 9th at the Odeon Leicester Square, with the European Premiere of Sony Pictures’ ‘Captain Phillips.’ The film is directed by acclaimed Academy Award nominee Paul Greengrass (United 93, The Bourne Supremacy) and stars two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia), both of whom are expected to attend the Festival.
‘Captain Phillips’ is described as director Paul Greengrass’s “multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is – through Greengrass’s distinctive lens – simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control.”
