New Trailer for ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’

A new trailer has been released for the highly anticipated sequel to heartwarming 2012 comedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, if the new clip is anything to go by, it pretty much looks as though we’re kind of in for more of the same as we go back to India for a second stay. However, in this case, “more of the same” is a perfectly acceptable and actually quite desirable outcome as the first film is so lovely.

Creatively titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the sequel will continue to follow the story of a group of British retirees making a home for themselves in a second-rate Indian retirement hotel. Eight months have passed since the events of the original film and, with the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and the Beautiful nearing capacity, owner-manager Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) is looking to expand his business empire. Or, at least build another retirement home.

Watch: Carey Mulligan and Michael Sheen in Trailer for ‘Far From the Madding Crowd'

Who’s up for a little Thomas Hardy at your local multiplex? A big screen adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd is headed our way next year, offering those of us who like our period drama with a bit of classical literary flavoring an option beyond Jane Austen. Also, this just looks pretty awesome in general, if you ask me.

The film’s cast is top notch, as is really to be expected in dramas such as this, featuring The Great Gatsby’s (or Doctor Who’s if you’re really fond of the episode “Blink”) Carey Mulligan as our heroine, opposite Masters of Sex’s Michael Sheen, The Hollow Crown’s Tom Sturridge and dishy Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts.

Lily James and Richard Madden Star in Magical Live Action ‘Cinderella’ Trailer

Disney is bringing one of its most iconic animated heroines to life – in a film that’s positively stuffed full of fabulous British actors. The House of Mouse has released the first trailer for its live action version of film classic Cinderella – and it’s surprisingly good.

Downton Abbey’s Lily James trades in her flapper dresses for a ball gown as the titular Disney princess, and she gets the King in the North (also known as Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden) as her Prince Charming.

Director Kenneth Branagh has assembled a top-notch supporting cast, including Helena Bonham Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Cate Blanchett as Cinderella’s wicked stepmother, and The Borgias’ Holliday Grainger and James’ own Downton co-star Sophie McShera as the horrible stepsisters.

Watch: The Final Trailer for the Final 'Hobbit' Film is All Kinds of Awesome

After fourteen years, six films and something like twenty hours worth of movies, Peter Jackson’s epic journey through the works of J.R.R. Tolkien is finally wrapping up this December with the release of the third film in The Hobbit trilogy.

Subtitled The Battle of the Five Armies (a switch from the original There and Back Again that I’m still miffed about), the film is set to wrap up the story of Bilbo Baggins’ journey, as well as showcase several massive fight scenes, and create a bridge of sorts between the end of the story in The Hobbit and the beginning of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

You can say what you like about Jackson’s work, and there are valid arguments to be made on both sides of the debate about whether The Hobbit trilogy really needed to be three films or not, but this trailer is something spectacular – if only because it represents the true end of an era, as we say goodbye to Jackson’s singular vision of Middle Earth.

Watch: New ‘Paddington’ Trailer Featuring the Voice of Ben Whishaw

The story behind the first live action movie based on beloved British children’s character Paddington Bear has been…well, a tiny bit dramatic. The initial excitement surrounding its teaser trailer gave way to a creepy internet meme based on the fact that live-action Paddington actually looked more than a bit like he might stalk you than cuddle. The film’s original voice of Paddington, Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth, dropped out in the midst of production and had to be replaced.

But, apparently nothing can keep a good bear down for long. Paddington is back with an all-new trailer featuring the voice talents of its new lead voice actor, none other than the fantastic Ben Whishaw. (You probably know him as Q from the latest James Bond sequel Skyfall or as Shakespeare’s King Richard II in The Hollow Crown.)

Watch the new trailer - and hear Paddington actually talk! - below.

Watch Another Trailer for Alan Turing Biopic ‘The Imitation Game’ with Benedict Cumberbatch

The highly anticipated biopic The Imitation Game – starring Benedict Cumberbatch as codebreaking genius Alan Turing – is set to open the London Film Festival with a gala screening this week. In honor of the film’s debut in England, a brand new trailer has been released, which focuses a bit more on the man behind the intellect that helped crack the Nazis’s Enigma code.

Two trailers for the film have already been released, both of which focus on the groundbreaking work done by Turing and his team at Bletchley Park. This newest clip focuses the team of mathematicians assembled to crack the most difficult code the world had ever seen and the machine that Turing created – considered the earliest computer – to help them do it. The trailer also highlights the growing stress Turing was under to crack Enigma as quickly as possible – as well as to keep the secrets of his personal life from those around him.

Cumberbatch is joined by an all-star supporting cast featuring Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Allen Leech, Charles Dance and more. And, quite frankly, it looks outstanding.

WATCH: Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything' Trailer

Biopics about incredible British men – and starring incredible British men – seems to be quiet a theme at the movies in 2014. Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is earning early raves for his portrayal of Alan Turing in The Imitation Game and now fellow dreamy Brit Eddie Redmayne (whom you may know from Les Miserables and Birdsong) is also generating quite a bit of buzz in a role Cumberbatch previously played. (Because, you know, of course he did).

Redmayne is playing the great British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking in a new film entitled The Theory of Everything. The drama explores the complex relationship between Hawking and his first wife Jane, and chronicles his diagnosis and subsequent battle with motor neurone disease beginning at the age of 21. (Motor neurone disease, in case you weren’t aware of this, is known as ALS in America, and was the impetus behind that Ice Bucket Challenge that took over your Facebook feed this summer.) The film follows his career as a groundbreaking theoretician and the many discoveries he made as his body deteriorated.

Get Your First Look at ‘Downton Abbey’s’ Dan Stevens in ‘Night at the Museum 3’

Here’s the deal: We’re all never going to get over Matthew Crawley on Downton Abbey. It’s just not happening. We’re going to miss Dan Stevens around the Highclere Castle grounds forever, no matter how much we end up enjoying Lord Tony or Evelyn Napier whoever else shows up next season. So, it’s totally okay that we’re all obsessively tracking his post-Downton career with a zeal we don’t even dedicate to keeping apprised of the lives of actual family members. It’s fine.

Luckily, Stevens has been doing his best to keep busy since departing the 1920s. He’s made several movies over the past year and a half, playing everything from a swoony romantic lead (again), to a troubled drug dealer (yikes) to what appears to be a complete psychopath (oh dear). Happily, his role in franchise sequel Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb looks though it’s going to be a bit more as familiar.

Steven joins the third installment of the family-friendly franchise, starring Ben Stiller and Robin Williams, that follows the story of a nighttime security guard who discovers that all the exhibits in the museum come to life after the building shuts down, with the help of a magical Egyptian tablet. (It’s cute, just go with it.) Secret of the Tomb finds our heroes headed to London to solve a mystery at the British Museum and meeting a bunch of new museum figures who are secretly alive.

Stevens plays Lancelot – yes that Lancelot – and as you can see from the trailer below, looks rather perfect for the part, even if he is sporting some rather deplorable facial hair.

Watch: The First Trailer for ‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy’s Epic Conclusion

Hi guys! I’m home from Comic Con – exhausted, sore, seriously jetlagged and super happy. I had a great con. More on that later, but first I have to catch up on the apparently millions of things I did not read or watch over the last week. Bear with me!

One of the (many, many) fantastic bonuses to come out of San Diego Comic Con International is a positive explosion of new trailers for things. Having a captive audience, so to speak, the biggest studios and networks in the world want to make as big of a splash with as many properties as possible.

Thus, it’s no surprise that Warner Brothers rolled out the red carpet for the final appearance of The Hobbit – and likely the final Comic Con for fanboy god Peter Jackson for a very long time (if ever). The director has filmed six Tolkien-based movies over the past fourteen years, and unless he somehow manages to wrest the rights to The Silmarillion away from the author’s estate (unlikely), we’re approaching a true end of an era.

The studio hosted a star-studded panel on Saturday morning in the convention center’s Hall H, featuring stars Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, Evangeline Lilly and more, and dropped the first trailer for the trilogy’s highly anticipated final installment, subtitled The Battle of the Five Armies.

Spoiler alert: If you are at all in any way a fan of Jackson’s vision of Middle Earth, get your tissues ready now. Just trust me.

Get Your First (Two) Look(s) at Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley in ‘The Imitation Game’

World War II biopic The Imitation Game – which tells the story of British codebreaker, genius and general hero Alan Turing - has been a buzzy project for months now, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that the release of the film’s first trailer has been met with rapturous reviews.

Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch – well known for his ability to portray complicated genius types like Stephen Hawking, Vincent Van Gogh and Julian Assange – plays Turing, joined by an all-star cast comprised of British acting heavyweights, including the Oscar-nominated Keira Knightley, Game of Thrones’ Charles Dance, Downton Abbey’s Allen Leech, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Matthew Goode, Matthew Beard and more.
