The wait is over. For many months, readers have had their noses inside the erotic thriller novel, and now the trailer is finally here.

Adapted from E L James‘s chart-topping series, the film follows the romance between businessman Christian Grey and the collegiate Anastasia Steele.

At this time the big question will be if casual film fans will go see the film or if it’ll just appeal to readers of the S&M tale.

Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Marcia Gay Harden, Max Martini, Eloise Mumford, Dylan Neal, Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk, and Callum Keith Rennie.

Fifty Shades Of Grey opens on February 13, 2015.

This fall, we’re going to see exactly why The Weinstein Company paid $7 million dollars to acquire the rights for The Imitation Game.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Alan Turing in the true-story tale about the man credited with cracking the German Enigma code, and the race against time he and his team faced at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment (read: he was persecuted for his homosexuality), but his work and legacy live on.

The film also stars Keira Knightley, directed by Morten Tyldum, and hits theaters on November 21st, 2014.

Review: Starred Up

Part Bronson, part Hunger, UK prison drama Starred Up is one that will stick with you and be talked about in the pantheon of prison flicks going forward.

Rising star Jack O’Connell plays 19-year-old Eric Love, a violent, hot-tempered troublemaker who does his problem solving with his fists. The film’s title refers to a young persons early transfer into an adult prison due to their behavior. It’s clear from the start that our main character has a few screws loose. Inside, things get a bit more complicated as his estranged father, Neville (Ben Mendelsohn), is in the same prison, battling his own issues, now having to deal with his son.

Starred Up is a gritty, hard to swallow depiction of the prison dynamic. While it focuses on Eric, his unstable personality and his path toward mental maturity, it also hones in on a not-so-normal father and son relationship what doesn’t have a choice but start to mend.

While everyone is talking about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers: Age of Ultron, one superhero film is going seemingly undetected.

Director Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot.

Kate Mara (Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman), Miles Teller (Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic), Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm/The Thing), Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm/ The Human Torch) have all been in Louisiana for a few months shooting, but no one is saying a peep.

In an interview with MTV, rising star Jordan says that the film is a lot different than that first mess we got it 2005. With the cast headed to Comic-Con, we should expect to start seeing more from the set in the not so distant future.

Prepare to be scared again.

As someone who is not fond of horror films, I was dragged to see The Conjuring. And was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. There wasn’t any cheesy music or absurd kill scene where someone falls as they are being chased by the monster.

It was a well made scare flick. Now comes the spinoff, Annabelle. Titled after the creepy doll in the first film, Annabelle stars Ward Horton, Alfre Woodard and (ironically) Annabelle Wallis.

Details have been kept under wraps but this first teaser is similar to The Conjuring’s first teaser. The suspense is there and after its predecessor cashed in $315 million at the box office, Annabelle should have quite the loyal following on October 3rd, 2014.

Trailer: Horns

The first trailer for Alexandre Aja’s Horns has arrived.

Starring Daniel Radcliffe the film follows the Harry Potter star as Ig Perrish, the main suspect in the rape and murder of his girlfriend (Juno Temple).  He wakes one morning to find horns growing from his head, appendages that have the ability to force confessions from strangers, which aid him in his quest to find the real killer and exact his revenge.

I think many people are looking to see if Radcliffe can become a main stay in Hollwood without the aid of a J.K. Rowling book. He has certainly kept himself busy on Broadway and in a few films coming up, but none with a premise this harsh.

Horns also stars Max Minghella, James Remar, Joe Anderson, Kelli Garner and hits theaters and VOD on Halloween.

Angelina Jolie’s second effort behind the camera is making waves.

After her first attempt, In the Land of Blood and Honey, went unnoticed, she now returns with the World War II drama Unbroken, featuring rising star Jack O’Connell as Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini.

Along with two other crewmen, he survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII — only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

The script was written by Joel and Ethan Coen (as well as Richard LaGravenese), along with cinematography from Roger Deakins, and also stars Domhnall Gleeson, Garrett Hedlund, Finn Wittrock, John Magaro, Jai Courtney, Alex Russell, and Miyavi.

Bridge and Tunnel: 2/3rds of the way to Three Before 30

Bridge and Tunnel has always been about home. Never once did director Jason Michael Brescia lose his grip on what was the backbone to making this film successful: Long Island.

Uttered often as a moniker of success, “never forget where you came from,” this dramedy has focused on breathing life into that motto, making sure the first time it was screened was at the Cinema Village in New York City on December 13th, 2013, followed by a cozy home viewing in Bellmore, Long Island on December 15th, 2013 at Bellmore Movies.

On July 11th, 2014, Bridge and Tunnel is heading to the Long Island International Film Expo, followed by the Long Beach International Film Festival on August 2nd. It’s been almost a full two years since Brescia and I first spoke about this film, and hard work has landed his passion project at 13 film festivals thus far.

With the movie finished, title cards, visual effects, music and all the I’s dotted and T’s crossed, I caught up with Brescia once more to discuss the feature outside the editing room. We talked about life in the  festival circuit, the growth as a director from one feature to another and much more.
