It’s official, sweetie darlings: Absolutely Fabulous is coming soon to a cinema near you.

Yes, the long-rumored, frequently assumed to be mythical feature film version of ridiculous adventures of desperate to be hip PR agent Edina Monsoon and her chain-smoking, hard-partying best friend Patsy Stone is finally arriving on the big screen. It will be titled, simply, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie.

We don’t know a lot about the film’s plot just yet, though Entertainment Weekly reported that the story finds Edina and Patsy reeling from “a major incident at an uber fashionable launch party” and decamping to the French Riviera.

Watch the First Trailer for ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’

The teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Harry Potter spinoff/sort-of prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has been released, and while it may not give much of anything away regarding the film’s characters or plot, if you – or anyone you know – happen to be a Potter fanatic, you’re going to be screaming about it anyway.

Oscar winner and general British acting darling of the moment Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a “magizoologist” who eventually authors the famous Hogwarts textbook that gives the film its name. 

Watch James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe in 'Victor Frankenstein' Trailer

The trailer for upcoming film Victor Frankenstein features several things that are awesome – including James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe as the titular mad scientist and his loyal sidekick, a pretty terrifying monster (even if you only see it for like three seconds), and the most amazing hair cinematic hair accessory you’ve seen in years.

Plus, it also just looks like an interesting twist on the Frankenstein story. (But, seriously! This wig!)

The Full Trailer for ‘Spectre’ is Pretty Awesome Actually (And Andrew Scott is In it!)

The full trailer for upcoming James Bond film Spectre is here and it’s definitely worth the wait.

Stars Daniel Craig, Ben Whishaw, Naomi Harris and Ralph Fiennes are all back for this latest 007 adventure, joined by a bunch of fresh faces, including the clearly villainous Christoph Waltz and two new Bond girls in the form of Monica Belluci and Léa Seydoux.

Spectre will be the twenty-fifth installment in the Bond franchise and, thus far, appears to be director Sam Mendes biggest/most dramatic entry yet - and that’s kind of saying something, after Skyfall – if the trailer is anything to go by. (Mendes has said this will be his last go-round with James Bond in the director’s chair, so it seems he’s aiming to go out on a high note.)

The New 'Crimson Peak' Trailer is Terrifying and Also Kind of Gorgeous

Full-length trailers for Crimson Peak, director Guillermo del Toro’s latest foray into Gothic horror have arrived, and if you are at all into the prospect of watching Tom Hiddleston swan about in fancy period dress as an emotionally conflicted romantic with an obvious deep, dark secret, this is the movie for you.

Provided you don’t mind blood, death or things that make you jump out of your seat.

Watch the Full Trailer for Ian McKellen’s ‘Mr. Holmes’

The full trailer for upcoming big screen Sherlock Holmes saga Mr. Holmes has arrived and, while it represents at least the fourth mainstream portrayal of the great detective to grace popular culture in the past five years, it seems safe to say that this film is doing its best to set itself apart as something different.

Based on the novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullin, the film follows the adventures of the great detective near the end of his life. At the age of 93, Holmes has retired to Sussex, where he lives with a housekeeper (Laura Linney) and her young son (Milo Parker) as he struggles with getting older and the perils of encroaching dementia.

And, of course, there’s the fact that it stars the great Sir Ian McKellen, one of those actors who is of such a caliber that most people would happily watch him read the phone book, let along play Sherlock Holmes. (I have actually watched McKellen read the phone book, for the record, and it was still a mesmerizing performance. Just so you know.)

Watch: Ian McKellen in the Teaser for 'Mr. Holmes'

Despite the fact that there are currently three versions of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's great detective in popular culture at the moment - Benedict Cumberbatch in Sherlock, Jonny Lee Miller in Elementary and Robert Downey, Jr in Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes series of films (Yes, I am determined to believe a third installment is going to happen. One day.) - there's always room for one more.

Especially when that one more is being played by acting legend Sir Ian McKellen.

Watch: Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain in Trailer for ‘Crimson Peak’

The first trailer has arrived for director Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming Gothic horror film Crimson Peak, and if what you most want in life is a bunch of shots of Tom Hiddleston being creepy in a super posh period costume, well, it’s your lucky day.

Hiddleston stars opposite Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam in this supernatural period drama that features ghosts, family secrets, dark passions, and general craziness.

Get Your First Look at Sir Ian McKellen as 'Mr. Holmes'

Since Sir Ian McKellen is one of those sorts of actors that most people would be willing to watch read out math equations, any time he takes a role, it's of interest. When he decides to take on play an iconic part like the great Sherlock Holmes - who, by the way, is the most frequently portrayed fictional character in film or television - it pretty much guarantees that the end result is going to be awesome. McKellen will be playing the great detective in the upcoming film Mr. Holmes, which is based on the 2005 novel A Slight Trick of the Mind by Mitch Cullen.

The movie will offer a slightly different take on the tale of Sherlock Holmes - unlike contemporary series Sherlock and Elementary which focus on a younger detective solving various cases, this story will be set during the twilight of his life, as he battles old age, dementia, and a growing obsession with an unsolved case from his past. Without his Watson, the 93-year-old Holmes now lives a housekeeper and his young son
