First Official Trailer for “Lullaby” starring Garrett Hedlund and Amy Adams

The first trailer for ARC Entertainment’s Lullaby has officially been released! Let me tell you, this looks like it is going to be an amazing and emotional film.

Lullaby stars Garrett Hedlund, Richard Jenkins, Amy Adams, Jessica Brown Findlay, Anne Archer, Terrence Howard, Jennifer Hudson, and Jessica Barden. Here is an official synopsis (via Apple Movie Trailers):

“Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours’ time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert (Jenkins) fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients’ rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother (Archer), sister (Brown-Findlay), and his love (Adams) and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts—a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient (Barden) and a no-nonsense nurse (Hudson). Through this intensely life-affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.”

Does this look like a film you would be interested in seeing? What do you think of this first trailer? Lullaby will be available on iTunes and be released in theaters on June 13.

Here is the official synopsis (via Apple Movie Trailers): Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, The Lost Child of Philomena Lee, Philomena focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock—something her Irish-Catholic community didn’t have the highest opinion of—and given away for adoption in the United States. In following church doctrine, she was forced to sign a contract that wouldn’t allow for any sort of inquiry into the son’s whereabouts. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son. Philomena will be theatrically released on November 22, 2013.

3) Belle stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Sarah Gadon, Penelope Wilton, Miranda Richardson, Tom Felton, Sam Reid, and Matthew Goode. Here is an official synopsis (via Apple Movie Trailers): Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizebeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England. Belle premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on September 8, 2013 and will be released in theaters on May 2, 2014.

A stunning new international poster has been released for the Oliver Hirschbiegel-directed biopic entitled Diana. The production itself has actually undergone several changes with both the title and release date being changed. The original title was Caught in Flight, but it was later changed to simply, Diana. The release date was also changed from August 29 to September 20, 2013.
