It was far from groundbreaking but the first Inbetweeners film did at least raise a few decent titters. Now the trailer for the film’s long anticipated sequel has appeared online and the makers “promise” that none of the best jokes are in it – check it out below:

Foxcatcher – trailer

Foxcatcher

I saw the first trailer for a new movie starring Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Vanessa Redgrave tonight. ‘Foxcatcher‘ is based on the true story of Mark Schultz, an Olympic wrestler whose relationship with mentor John du Pont and brother Dave Schultz leads to strange and unlikely circumstances.

It caught my attention as it’s Carell‘s first real ‘serious’ role and comes courtesy of Bennett Miller, the man behind Moneyball and Capote - which augers well. Check out the trailer below:

Foxcatcher, which debuted recently at Cannes Film Festival (and got a glowing write up from The Guardian‘s Peter Bradshaw) is released in the US on the 14th November – as yet it doesn’t have an official UK release date.

Late 80′s tv show ‘The Equalizer’ gets a movie remake

the equalizer

In my early teens I used to love watching Edward Woodward in The Equalizer. The show ran for four seasons (and 88 episodes) from 1985 to 1989, and amongst other things had one of my favourite ever TV soundtracks (courtesy of Stewart Copeland). I bloody loved it and Woodward was a revelation as the ice cool, retired intelligence officer, Robert McCall, a man with a mysterious past who helps people in trouble.

The show also featured a huge array of stars and gave early showcases to Kevin Spacey, Christian Slater, John Goodman, Laurence Fishburn, William H. Macy, Steve Buscemi, Amanda Plummer and Stanley Tucci, amongst others. After Woodward suffered a heart attack in 1987 the show’s producers also brought in Robert Mitchum for a number of episodes. It was a great show and one that’s remained remarkably absent from the land of TV repeats, which is a shame.

Anyway, until tonight I was aware that the show has been turned into a forthcoming Hollywood movie. This time around, Denzil Washington is due to play McCall, with Training Day director, Antoine Fuqua overseeing things. The premise remains the same but the result is a darker and slicker proposition. Whether that proves to be a good thing is another matter.

Check out the trailer below:

The Equalizer is out in UK and US cinemas on the 26th September.

The minute long teaser for Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, the Detroit set, Lost River appeared online over the weekend.

The bad news for Gosling fans is the film received a bit of a critical mauling last night at Cannes.

The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw tweeted after seeing it, “If Ryan Gosling hadn’t been such a star actor, he’d never have been allowed to direct *stares into space, screams*.” Kate Muir from The Times didn’t care for it much either, tweeting, “Cripes. Ryan Gosling’s Lost River is a lurid mash up of Lynch, Refn and Edward Hopper. In a bad way.”

The film stars ex-Doctor Who Matt Smith, Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan and Eva Mendes and is due in cinemas later this year – check out the rather odd trailer below:
