A teaser trailer for HBO’s upcoming sci-fi series, ‘Westworld’, has been released.
HBO has released its first teaser trailer for its upcoming series, Westworld. The trailer was aired before the season two finale of True Detective on Monday (10th July). In typical HBO fashion, the series promises to be action packed, visually impressive and featuring a hugely talented cast.

Ryan Brenner is a talented busker travelling across the US on freight trains desperate to find success as a guitarist and singer. Jackie Laurel is just one of the many who have been captivated by his street music, being a former singer herself, and when she is knocked down by a pick-up truck in Ogden, Utah, he is first on the scene to help her to her feet. He manages to get her home, and eventually agrees to stay for supper as a thank you. But after hearing about how he has no fixed address, she offers him a place to crash for a little while - to the approval of both her mother and her young daughter. While he might be struggling to kickstart his career, she's looking to end her marriage to her husband in Manhattan, who is threatening to take custody of their daughter unless she stops divorce proceedings. Life might not be dealing them any aces, but it seems they could really find something special in each other.

Nick Tortano has always felt under pressure to do well in his life, no matter what that takes. He's constantly been the subject of bitter disappointment from his Italian father, who deeply disapproved of the life of petty crime and dodgy dealings that Nick had entered into. Having become so used to his criminal ways, Nick knows no other way to live his life, but is still ultimately ambitious in his career of violence and covert money making. Thus, the next step for him led him to join the Boston mafia, and while he may have found true status, he soon finds out that there's a lot more to this criminal underworld than he initially realised, and when he falls in love with a young girl named Ali Matazano, he suddenly discovers for the first time that he finally has something to lose - and he's in more danger of that than he thought.

The trailer for this fantasy epic has got us excited.
The last time we saw Jeff Bridges he was lumbering around the deep West as Rooster Cogburn, being harangued and harassed by the brilliant Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross in 2010’s True Grit. Now he’s some sort of fantasy dojo teaching a young warrior to fight the evil spirits they plague their world in The Seventh Son.
Bridges looking troubled - it's not easy to relax when evil spirits want to eat your heart
Master Gregory – Bridges’ character in the film – bears no resemblance to anything we’ve seen from the Big Lebowski before. He’s nimble, wise and mysterious as he trains young Thomas played by Ben Barnes (Dorian Gray) in the art of battle.
John Gregory is a Spook charged with ridding the country of witches, beasts and malevolent forces. But, as the years tick by, he realises that he must enlist another to keep evil at bay in the form of Thomas Ward, the seventh son of the seventh son who possesses the power to see things others cannot. When the powerful witch Mother Malkin makes her return, after Gregory thought he'd defeated her years ago, Thomas is forced to confront her and slay her once and for all. But things aren't as easy they seem when he befriends a witch girl who convinces him that not all witches are bad. Will Thomas succeed in sending Malkin back to the grave? Or will he find himself putting his trust in the wrong people?

An all-star cast very nearly goes down with the ship as filmmaker Justin Zackham (The Bucket List) indulges in relentlessly farcical silliness. Thankfully the actors play it relatively straight, injecting moments of dark emotion and sharp wit in between the corny wackiness. But the script is more interested in humiliating its characters than finding any genuine humour.
The eponymous nuptials are between Alejandro and Missy (Barnes and Seyfried), who haplessly watch their families implode as the big day approaches. Alejandro's adoptive dad Don (De Niro) and his long-time girlfriend Bebe (Sarandon) are planning the event, but Alejandro's deeply religious birth-mother (Rae) is coming from Colombia, so he asks his dad to pretend to still be married to his ex-wife Ellie (Keaton). Meanwhile, Alejandro's sister Lyla (Heigl) is having her own marriage crisis, while his brother Jared (Grace) can't keep his libido under control.
As the preparations continue, the plot gets increasingly tangled. But it also becomes strangely ingrown, as if these people have never met anyone outside their small circle of family and friends. Past secrets are revealed and dark peccadillos come to light, leading to a series of manic confrontations. Through it all, the film remains blandly amusing, although its rather extreme moments never quite escalate to Meet the Parents hilarity. Thankfully they avoid the strained goofiness of Death at a Funeral.

Like a Russian nesting doll, this film tells a story within a story within another story, playing around with fact and fiction, as well as the nature of creative inspiration and integrity. These themes are thoroughly engaging, although the film has a nagging familiarity to it because of its cliched story elements. And the structure prevents us from getting properly involved in any of the three story strands.
The main narrator is Clay (Quaid), who is reading from his book The Words, which tells the story of writer Rory (Cooper) and his wife Dora (Saldana), who struggled for five years before his first novel was published to rapturous acclaim from both critics and the public. But out of the shadows emerges an old man (Irons) who knows Rory's secret: he found the manuscript for the novel in a briefcase he bought in a Paris junk shop, then passed it off as his own. So the old man in turn tells Rory his own story, about when he was a younger man (Barnes) in Paris married to a French waitress (Arnezeder).
The layered storytelling lets filmmakers explore quite a few big issues, from the way most novels are based on elements from the writers' lives to the ruthlessness of the publishing industry, in which even the most talented authors struggle to earn a living. But of course, most of the characters in the film are fictional, so we never become very invested in their situations. And the only "real" person is Quaid's cocky, leery Clay, who's engaged in squirm-inducing flirtation with a grad student (Wilde) who stalks him.
Continue reading: The Words Review
Don and Ellie have been divorced for a long time but when their adopted son Alejandro and his fiancé Missy decide to get married, it looks to be time for a family reunion. If things weren't awkward enough with Ellie seeing that her best friend Bebe from years ago is now married to her ex-husband, Alejandro's biological mother has also decided to fly over from Columbia for the occasion. However, she happens to be an extremely devout catholic with the belief that divorce is a sin so the family's only resolution to appease her and make her feel that giving away her son was the right decision is for Don and Ellie to pretend that they are still married on the big day, to Bebe's resentment. As expected, things are not as straight forward as they planned and the days leading up to the nuptials couldn't possibly be more tense and disastrous for this unusual family.
This ridiculous though rather touching comedy has been based on the French movie 'Mon Frère Se Marie' written by Jean-Stéphane Bron and Karine Sudan and is the wonderful story of how broken families can mend or, at least, unite for their mutual relatives when it is a matter of importance. It has been directed and written by Justin Zackham ('Going Greek', 'The Bucket List') and is set to be released on May 31st 2013 in the UK.
Starring: Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Robin Williams, Ben Barnes, Megan Ketch, Greg Paul, Christa Campbell, David Rasche, Christine Ebersole, Kyle Bornheimer,
Rory Jansen is a young writer who is failing to achieve any kind of literary recognition and is on the edge of giving up as he and his wife Dora struggle to pay the bills. One day, as a kind gesture, Dora buys Rory an antique looking leather case in which he later discovers a collection of papers detailing a highly compelling and well written novel. In a moment of utter desperation and thoughtlessness, Rory copies the story and gets it published under his own name finally achieving the recognition and success he so craved. It's only a matter of time before he gets found out and he begins to realise how many people's lives he has affected by his one moment of stupidity. He must face the consequences for stealing the work of another writer and find a way to fix everything.

Dorian (Barnes) is an orphan who inherits a sprawling mansion when his tyrant grandfather dies. Young and eligible, he's quickly taken under the wing of Lord Henry (Firth), who introduces him to the licentious ways of late 19th century London. But the sex and drugs sabotage his relationship with an innocent young actress (Hurd-Wood), and Dorian pledges his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal youth. Now instead of aging, a portrait painted by his friend Basil (Chaplin) shows the scars of his depraved life.
