An official US trailer has been released for Hotel Mumbai. The movie recounts the true story of the 2008 terrorist attack on the Taj Hotel in Mumbai, India.
Starring in Hotel Mumbai is Dev Patel, Armie Hammer, Nazanin Boniadi, Anupam Kher, and Jason Isaacs. It’s directed by Anthony Maras, who is making his feature directorial debut, from a screenplay penned by Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World and Happy Feet writer John Collee.
You can find an official synopsis and the new trailer, as well as a recently released poster, below.
We got our first look back in November at Chappie, the upcoming film from director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium).
Now, a second trailer for the film has been released, which you can watch here below.
The new trailer see the roles of Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Sigourney Weaver come into sharper focus and reveals more action than the more emotional spin of the first trailer. It also became more apparent to me that Chappie draws strongly on elements from two sci-fi classics, RoboCop and Short Circuit, which Blomkamp is weaving into a dystopian sci-fi take on Pinocchio.
The first trailer has been released for Chappie, the next movie from District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp.
The movie is a coming-of-age tale, but instead of following a young human being coming into their own, this follows a robot. It stars Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Jose Pablo Cantillo, South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord (Yo-Landi Visser, Ninja), and Sharlto Copley as Chappie.

With shows like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and True Blood leading the charge, it’s clear that HBO’s hit shows can often have a hefty budget and rely heavily on visual effects and costumes and so on. One of their newer series, The Newsroom, is not one of those shows.
Created by Aaron Sorkin, the show is simple enough on the surface—being about the inner workings of a news team—but a collection of lives intertwined within this newsroom setting leads to plenty of interesting storylines as the show progresses. Instead of the aforementioned effects and costumes, it instead relies on two key things: writing and acting, and nails both of them consistently.
