Janus Films has released the new trailer for Criterion Collection’s 2K restoration of Andrei Tarkovsky’s brilliant science fiction classic Stalker.
The restored version will be screening in a limited theatrical run at the Film Society of Lincoln Center starting on May 5 (followed by Solaris), and will be available on DVD and Blu-ray on July 18.
Following the box-office success of the R-rated Deadpool and Logan, some fans are hoping that Marvel Studios should be jumping on that bandwagon too.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, however, sees it differently, and doesn’t have plans of making R-rated movie anytime soon. Speaking with THR, the studio head explained his own takeaway from those movies:
The Orchard has released the first official trailer for The Hero, starring Sam Elliott as an aging western actor who tries to cement his legacy with one final performance.
The film is directed by Brett Haley (I’ll See You in My Dreams) and also stars Laura Prepon, Krysten Ritter, Nick Offerman, and Katharine Ross. The Hero played at Sundance and at SXSW to mostly positive reviews.
Lionsgate and CBS Films have released the official trailer for their upcoming action thriller American Assassin, featuring The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien as CIA black ops recruit who works with Michael Keaton to stop terror attacks.
Co-starring Taylor Kitsch, Sanaa Lathan, Scott Adkins, David Suchet, and Shiva Negar, the film is directed by Michael Cuesta from a screenplay by Stephen Schiff, and based on Vince Flynn’s novel.
Nikita Mikhalkov‘s production company Three T has released the 45-second clip from its upcoming sports drama film Going Vertical (Движение вверх). Based on the true story of the Soviet Union’s basketball victory over the United States in the championship game of the 1972 Summer Olympics, the film was directed by Anton Megerdichev (Metro). Nikolai Kulikov (Legend No. 17) wrote the script.
Netflix has released the official trailer for Adam Leon‘s Tramps, an indie romance-heist film which first premiered at Toronto International Film Festival last fall.
Starring Callum Turner and Grace Van Patten, Leon’s sophomore feature is about a young man who agrees to transport a briefcase full of cash for his troublemaking older sibling, only to lose it, and team with the driver girl on a long night to get it back.
Universal Pictures‘ The Fate of the Furious won the weekend race with $100.2 million domestically and a $432.3 million internationally to an estimated $532.5 million global debut over Easter weekend.
The eighth film in the 16-years old franchise played in nearly 23,000 theaters around the world and cracked the global record held by Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which made $529 million worldwide in 2015.
