Stan & Ollie

A couple of years back we found out that Steve Coogan (Philomena, Alan Partridge, Tropic Thunder) and John C. Reilly (Chicago, Gangs of New York, Step Brothers) would be playing the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy in a movie titled Stan & Ollie. Now Entertainment One UK has released an official trailer for the movie.

Stan & Ollie tells the true story of what ended up being the final chapter of the comedy duo’s run as performers. Shirley Henderson (24 Hour Party People, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris, Florence Foster Jenkins), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 30 Days of Night), and Rufus Jones (The Foreigner, Paddington) star alongside Coogan and Reilly.

Continue below for a full synopsis and to check out the official trailer.

Despicable Me 3

Illumination Entertainment is a fine animation studio, but despite their well-convinced stories, the execution comes nowhere near the level of Disney or Pixar. If you had to ask what their flagship film would be, it would most probably be the Despicable Me films.

Despicable Me took the studio to where it is now, and Universal has released the first trailer for Despicable Me 3, starring Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, and Trey Parker.

Check out the trailer here below.

Laurel and Hardy

A pair of actors have been chosen to step into the massive shoes of legendary comedy duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, best known simply as Laurel and Hardy, in a movie about the pair titled Stan & Ollie.

Laurel is set to be played by Steve Coogan, best known for his work on Philomena (for which he scored two Academy Award nominations), Alan Partridge, Tropic Thunder, the Night at the Museum movies, and more. He was recently seen in the short-lived Showtime series Happyish. Hardy will be played by John C. Reilly, who is best known for his roles first in dramas like Chicago (for which he was nominated for an Oscar), Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Gangs of New York, and then comedies like Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Step Brothers, and Wreck-It Ralph. He was also seen in a smaller role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.

Minions Trailer Header

After two Despicable Me films, those tiny yellow baddies, better known as Minions, are finally getting their own spinoff film, appropriately titled Minions. It’s a sort of prequel to the entire franchise of sorts, as the film will explore the origins of the Minions and their quest to find the perfect boss.

We’ve seen plenty of trailers for the film, but this new video is by far one of the longest, clocking in at almost three and a half minutes. That being said, there is all-new hilarious footage, plus a vital plot that reveals why they end up working for Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock). Check out the latest trailer here below.

Indie Movie Spotlight: Frances Ha / What Maisie Knew

Frances Ha Film

Frances Ha

Frances (Greta Gerwig) is a quirky 27-year-old hipster who lives with her best friend Sophie (Mickey Sumner) in Brooklyn. Without warning, Sophie moves into her dream apartment in Tribeca with another girlfriend and Frances suddenly finds herself out on the street. Now she has to find a new place to live and re-examine her place in the world, since few of her lofty ambitions are likely to come to fruition.

Filmed in black-and-white, Frances Ha is directed by Noah Baumbach (Kicking and Screaming, The Squid and the Whale) and written by Baumbach and Gerwig. The film plays out like a Woody Allen-inspired episode of HBO’s Girls, without the awkward nudity but plenty of hipster cliches. Previously, Gerwig starred in Baumbach’s 2010 film Greenberg, and you may recognize her from films like Hannah Takes the Stairs, House of the Devil, Arthur, and No Strings Attached.

Despicable Me 2 Header

The one thing that Despicable Me 2 has going for it, aside from Agnes, that one kid known for screeching “it’s so fluffy,” are those tiny yellow minions that are constantly causing mayhem and by the side of Gru (voiced by Steve Carell).

The first trailer wasn’t too heavy on the details, which is fine by all means since it was a teaser trailer, as was the second trailer. Now a new more plot centric trailer has revealed a lot of detail about the story that will force Gru to fight for the good side.

Hit the jump to see the latest trailer for Despicable Me 2.

Despicable Me 2

A lot of what makes Despicable Me so adorable are those lovable mischievous yellow minions that go around assisting Gru (Steve Carell). The first trailer for Despicable Me 2 featured only three minions singing their off-key rendition of “Barbara Ann.” But it didn’t tell us anything about the sequel at all.

Now a new holiday-appropriate trailer has hit the web and it seems to tell us that the sequel will be focused on them. Check it out after the jump.

DVD Review: The Trip

The Trip
DVD
Directed by Michael Winterbottom
Starring Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon
IFC/MPI Home Video
Release Date: October 11, 2011

Nothing screams cinematic awesomeness like two people’s vacation.

Joking aside, that’s exactly what the team of Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, and director Michael Winterbottom have done with their latest collaboration, a docudrama entitled The Trip. Telling the story of Coogan, who, asked by The Observer to tour the UK’s best eateries, teams up with Brydon after his then-girlfriend passes on the short little vacation, the film finds our lead at his wits end when his long-time friend, Brydon, takes the vacant slot on the trip.

However slight the narrative may indeed sounds, the film that we ultimately get is both charmingly entertaining and intellectually delectable, more so than it frankly has any right to be.

The Not-So-Must-Watch Teaser Trailer For ‘Marmaduke’ Is Here

Marmaduke

Not too long ago, we discovered that the long-running comic strip Marmaduke was one of many old comics, toys, and other similar titles being turned into feature films. Apparently they were already hard at work on the film, as we now have a brand new teaser trailer for the flick to watch…if you so dare.

Fans of the comic strip and kids alike may find themselves enjoying a film like this much like with Alvin and the Chipmunks and their new sequel Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. For me personally — and most of our readers, I assume — this isn’t going to be at the tippy-top of your movie viewing wish list for 2010. The teaser trailer is short and consists of a little voice over action from the giant dog we know as Marmaduke (Owen Wilson), as well as a transition from Phantom Planet’s “California” to 2Pac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love,” if you’re into that sorta madness.

Head on over to the other side to check out the trailer.
