Watch the Intense Trailer for Beasts of No Nation

The film tells the story of an African child soldier involved in civil war

The first trailer for Cary Fukunaga’s upcoming Beasts of No Nation is an emotional, intense look into the life of an African child soldier that ends with Idris Elba’s character forcing the little boy to make a choice: kill the man in front of him who possibly killed his family — or let him escape with his life.

Beasts of No Nation is a Netflix original film based on Uzodinma Iweala’s 2005 novel of the same name, and will be one of the first Netflix original films along with Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, The Ridiculous Six, and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend. It’s set to begin streaming Oct. 16, and will debut in select Landmark theaters in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Atlanta, Indianapolis, Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Houston, Dallas, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and San Diego that same day. The film will debut at the Venice Film Festival and also screen at the Toronto International Film Festival. See the trailer above.

The New Fargo Trailer: Mystery, Murder, and Minnesota Accents

The new season is set in 1979

“That’s how it starts, with something small, like a break-in at the Watergate Hotel,” a bearded Nick Offerman scoffs. “But this thing’s only getting bigger.”

And that’s how a new trailer for the upcoming season of Fargo starts, with a mysterious diner murder in otherwise bland and boring Luverne, Minn. Amidst the backdrop of a frigid northern winter, we hear a mix of foreboding spooky music and quirky disco-era beats, see streaks of blood splattered on the ground, and smirk at blunt sexual innuendos. There’s Kirsten Dunst as a town tart, Patrick Wilson as a Vietnam vet-turned-police-officer investigating a local gang, and many rounded Minnesota o’s. If Mad Men made the 70s sexy, Fargo makes it alluringly brash.

The show will premiere on FX in October.

Here’s the Suicide Squad Trailer That Leaked at Comic-Con

The studio released the high-quality reel after a low-resolution, pirated version made its way around the Internet

Warner Bros. executives were faced with a dilemma when a Comic-Con visitor posted a pirated, low-quality tape of the studio’s Suicide Squad sizzle reel online. Should they wait to release a trailer on their own terms while a poor rendition made its way around the Internet, or put out the high-resolution version earlier than they wanted?

The studio went with the latter option on Monday, putting out the clean version of the three-minute teaser on YouTube.

Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and international distribution for the studio, told Deadline, “We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic-Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

The gang of dangerous criminals busted out of jail to work on black ops for a government agency are played by a star-studded cast of characters including Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto and Cara Delevingne. Suicide Squad is scheduled to hit theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.

Watch Caitlyn Jenner Give an Empowering Speech in New I Am Cait Trailer

"Hang out with the people that love you"

 

A new teaser for Caitlyn Jenner’s upcoming series, I Am Cait, shows Jenner and company toasting to Caitlyn — with mother Esther Jenner present.

Esther called Caitlyn “beautiful” after the Vanity Fair cover reveal, but mentioned she would still call Caitlyn her birth name, “Bruce.” But maybe that’s changing. “My first feeling was, ‘I lost my son,’ ” Esther says in the promo, which debuted on E! News. “Then I thought, ‘You know what? I’m gaining.’ “

Jenner is then shown talking to transgender teens. In a blog post released earlier Monday, Jenner wrote, “I have totally isolated myself from the transgender community so I have a lot of catching up to do.” She’s catching up, telling the kids, “Hang out with the people that love you and respect you. We’re all beautiful!”

Watch the trailer above, including the awkward fashion moment at the end. I Am Cait debuts July 26 on E!.

Watch the First Trailer for I Am Chris Farley

The film chronicles Farley’s life, and includes vintage footage, home videos, and interviews with numerous celebrities

Watch the First Teaser Trailer for The Leftovers Season 2

The show has unveiled a new setting

Normally sitting in an endless line of stand-still traffic is no one’s idea of fun.

On the other hand, when 2% of the world’s population disappears in an unexplained phenomenon and your destination is a town where exactly 0% of the population has mysteriously departed, a little traffic seems like a reasonable cross to bear.

The second season of HBO’s critically-acclaimed drama The Leftovers will return this fall with new characters and a new location. Instead of the fictional New York town of Mapelton, the latest season of Damon Lindelof’s series will be set in the fictional Texas town of Jarden (pop. 9,261). It’s probably too much to hope that there’ll be a crossover with another famous fictional Texas town called Dillon.

The Leftovers will return this fall on HBO, though the network has yet to announce a specific date.
