Movies – New Trailer for “Far from the Madding Crowd” starring Carey Mulligan

Fox Searchlight Pictures has released a new trailer for the upcoming drama, Far from the Madding Crowd. Based on the novel by Thomas Hardy, this story has been around since 1874 and is set in Victorian era England.

Starring Carey Mulligan, Michael Sheen, Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge and Juno Temple, this updated version will surely delight fans of the recent film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility.

The first official trailer for director Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar has been released! This movie has been highly anticipated among those in the film community.

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.
