A couple of years back we found out that Steve Coogan (Philomena, Alan Partridge, Tropic Thunder) and John C. Reilly (Chicago, Gangs of New York, Step Brothers) would be playing the legendary comedy duo Laurel and Hardy in a movie titled Stan & Ollie. Now Entertainment One UK has released an official trailer for the movie.
Stan & Ollie tells the true story of what ended up being the final chapter of the comedy duo’s run as performers. Shirley Henderson (24 Hour Party People, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets), Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris, Florence Foster Jenkins), Danny Huston (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, 30 Days of Night), and Rufus Jones (The Foreigner, Paddington) star alongside Coogan and Reilly.

Illumination Entertainment is a fine animation studio, but despite their well-convinced stories, the execution comes nowhere near the level of Disney or Pixar. If you had to ask what their flagship film would be, it would most probably be the Despicable Me films.
Despicable Me took the studio to where it is now, and Universal has released the first trailer for Despicable Me 3, starring Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, and Trey Parker.
A pair of actors have been chosen to step into the massive shoes of legendary comedy duo Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, best known simply as Laurel and Hardy, in a movie about the pair titled Stan & Ollie.
Laurel is set to be played by Steve Coogan, best known for his work on Philomena (for which he scored two Academy Award nominations), Alan Partridge, Tropic Thunder, the Night at the Museum movies, and more. He was recently seen in the short-lived Showtime series Happyish. Hardy will be played by John C. Reilly, who is best known for his roles first in dramas like Chicago (for which he was nominated for an Oscar), Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and Gangs of New York, and then comedies like Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, Step Brothers, and Wreck-It Ralph. He was also seen in a smaller role in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
After two Despicable Me films, those tiny yellow baddies, better known as Minions, are finally getting their own spinoff film, appropriately titled Minions. It’s a sort of prequel to the entire franchise of sorts, as the film will explore the origins of the Minions and their quest to find the perfect boss.
We’ve seen plenty of trailers for the film, but this new video is by far one of the longest, clocking in at almost three and a half minutes. That being said, there is all-new hilarious footage, plus a vital plot that reveals why they end up working for Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock). Check out the latest trailer here below.
A new trailer has been released for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third installment in the Night at the Museum franchise.
The trilogy-maker heads to London for this adventure, which is again directed by Shawn Levy and stars Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Rami Malek, Skyler Gisondo, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, and Ben Kingsley.
