Here’s The Trailer For The Danish Girl!


Here’s the trailer for The Danish Girl, a film that everyone is expecting to be a major Oscar contender.

They’re saying that Eddie Redmayne might be the first actor since Tom Hanks to win two consecutive awards for best actor.

(By they, of course, I mean my next door neighbor and the cashier who took my money at Victoria’s Secret this weekend.  Seriously, they are Oscar crazy!)

Plus, Alicia Vikander is in it.  She’s in like a 100 films this year.  (You may have seen her in Ex Machina and if you didn’t, you missed a great film.)  She will definitely be nominated for something.  It’s just a question of what.  If The Danish Girl is a big Oscar contender, it could very will be the film that gets her a nomination.

Here’s The Trailer for MacBeth!


Hey, did anyone else ever do high school theater and get violently admonished for loudly yelling “MacBeth!” while wandering around backstage in her underwear?  Or was that just me?

Anyway, here’s the first U.S. trailer for the upcoming Shakespeare adaptation, MacBeth!  This version stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard and, judging from the trailer, it certainly looks dark and gloomy.

Jane’s beau, Ned Kincaid (Harvey Stephens), knows something about the Kid’s mysterious past. McCall then puts a “sooner” claim on a parcel of land that becomes Tulsa. The town is wide open thanks to McCall…
