Glance at the cast listing for the upcoming Netflix release Shimmer Lake and you’d probably expect a comedy: Rainn Wilson (The Office), Ron Livingston (Office Space), Adam Pally (Happy Endings), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect), Wyatt Russell (Everybody Wants Some). And the film’s writer-director, Oren Uziel, penned the surprisingly great — and funny — sequel 22 Jump Street.

Cate Blanchett is one of contemporary cinema’s most accomplished actresses, and her most ambitious project to date may be her latest: Manifesto, director Julian Rosefeldt’s film adaptation of his multiscreen art-installation project, in which the Oscar winner plays 13 different roles. It’s a chameleonic tour de force that features Blanchett reciting famous historic and modern manifestos in a variety of unlikely guises and settings. As you’ll see in the above scene, Blanchett is almost unrecognizable as a homeless man wandering an Eastern European wasteland.

Tom Holland will be swinging into action this July as Marvel’s web-slinging hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but that’s not the only adventure he’ll be embarking upon this year. Ahead of that film’s upcoming theatrical debut at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, we now have its first trailer above. On the Irish coast in A.D. 1209, Holland and his fellow monks — including Richard Armitage’s leader and Jon Bernthal’s mute — set out on a quest to bring a legendary artifact with biblical origins to Rome, where they believe it will be safe from those who seek to wield its power.

While the death of Anton Yelchin at the far-too-young age of 27 rocked Hollywood last June, the Star Trek actor’s big-screen legacy hasn’t been fully appreciated just yet, with his final four film performances still awaiting a domestic theatrical release. In the wrenching clip, Yelchin’s Max — whose disappearance sets off We Don’t Belong Here’s drama — shares a heart-to-heart with his sister Elisa (Keough) on a grassy hill. It’s a brief, agonized moment in a film that’s sure to elicit a fair share of tears when it arrives in theaters tomorrow. We Don’t Belong Here co-stars Cary Elwes, Maya Rudolph, and Molly Shannon.

Coping with the loss of a parent is an unquestionably traumatic experience for a young child, and that’s certainly the case for the boy at the center of Voice from the Stone, an upcoming supernatural thriller starring Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke. Making matters worse here, however, is that along with grief, there are evil forces at play, although one wouldn’t necessarily know it from the scene we’re debuting exclusively at Yahoo Movies (watch it above), in which we see more of Clarke’s initial encounter with her young charge (glimpsed at in the trailer below). Set in 1950s Tuscany, Verena (Clarke) is a nurse who comes to live with a family headed by Klaus (Marton Csokas), who’s getting over the death of his wife.
Fourteen years after finding herself Under the Tuscan Sun, Diane Lane is back for more breathtaking views of the European countryside in the new romantic comedy Paris Can Wait. (Watch the exclusive trailer above.)
Between Netflix‘s film-festival acquisitions and its original feature production (not to mention its TV series), the streaming service has become an entertainment industry juggernaut. Its commitment to movies clearly extends beyond new releases, however, as evidenced by yesterday’s headline-making news that it is coming to the rescue of The Other Side of the Wind, a never-completed film by Orson Welles that a team of producers (including Filip Jan Rymsza, Frank Marshall, and Peter Bogdanovich) has been trying to assemble for release for years, to no avail. As described by The New York Times, The Other Side of the Wind is “a skewering of avant-garde directors…conceptualized by Welles as a type of collage.
As proven by his work in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jurassic World, Chris Pratt is very good at being funny. In the above behind-the-scenes clip from the home release, Pratt shows off his boogie-woogie moves for costar Jennifer Lawrence and the rest of the Passengers crew during the filming of the dance scene. What’s undeniable is that Pratt and Lawrence had a great time making Passengers, as confirmed by both the above clip, this previous blooper reel, and their many charming joint interviews.
The international trailer for the upcoming drama A Family Man (watch exclusively above) opens with a familiar setup: Gerard Butler is a Dane Jensen, a hotshot headhunter (“the purest form of salesman,” he boasts) too busy for his wife (Gretchen Mol) and kids. He’s in the running for a promotion, too, though boss (Willem Dafoe) says it will come down to Dane or his rival (Alison Brie).
The 2017 movie season kicked into a higher gear last week with the release of Logan, and it’s set to explode with this Friday’s debut of Kong: Skull Island, a new take on the movies’ classic giant ape that’s also intended to help push Warner Bros. and Legendary Films’ ongoing MonsterVerse (which began with 2014’s Godzilla) into overdrive. While it boasts an impressive cast including Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Samuel L. Jackson, and John C. Reilly, Skull Island’s main attraction is unquestionably its title character. In the featurette, cast and crew members expound on their 100 foot tall “castmate.” He’s “truly monstrous in size and scale and scope,” says star Hiddleston, who describes Kong as “a force of nature.
