The Burning Trailer

We don’t see too many Westerns hit the big screen but we have already been treated to a couple this year… this summer The Burning will one not to miss if you are a fan of this genre.

The Burning sees writer and filmmaker Pablo Fendrik return to the director’s chair for the first time since Blood Appears back in 2008.

A brand new trailer for the film has arrived and we have it for you to take a look at:

Gael García Bernal will take on the central role of Kai and is joined on the cast list by Alice Braga, Chico Diaz, and Jorge Sesan.

Kai (Garcia Bernal), a mysterious and mystical figure, emerges from the Argentinean rainforest to rescue Vania (Braga), who has been kidnapped by mercenaries. Together they face off against the men who have ruthlessly murdered Vania’s father, a poor farmer, and taken over his land.

Part love story, part western, Fendrik turns this latter genre on its head as so-called civilisation becomes a destructive force over both the rich jungle setting and the communities living within it.

The Burning is released 19th June.

Jurassic World Brand New Featurette

The release of Jurassic World is now just a couple of weeks away and it is the summer movie that I really cannot wait to see.

Jurassic World sees Colin Trevorrow take over the director’s chair of this popular franchise for the first time, while Steven Spielberg is on board as executive producer.

This brand new featurette sees director, producer, and cast talk about the film and what they were hoping to achieve when they brought it to the big screen. There is also some terrific footage from the movie to check out:

Chris Pratt is one of the most in demand actors in Hollywood and he is set to take on the central role of Owen Grady in the new film – this is the second summer in a row where he has led a major blockbuster.

Pratt leads a terrific cast as Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D’Onofrio, Judy Greer, Jake Johnson, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson, and Irrfan Khan are all also on board.

Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park (1993), Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond.

After 10 years of operation and visitor rates declining, in order to fulfill a corporate mandate, a new attraction is created to re-spark visitor’s interest, which backfires horribly.

Jurassic World is released 11th June

We Are Your Friends Trailer

Zac Efron is set to return to the big screen at the end of the summer as he leads the cast in We Are Your Friends.

We Are Your Friends is the highly anticipated feature film directorial debut for Max Joseph – creator of MTV series Catfish. As well as being in the director’s chair, Joseph has teamed up with Meaghan Oppenheimer to pen the screenplay.

The first trailer for the film has arrived and we have it for you to take a look at:

Efron is set to take on the role of aspiring DJ Cole Carter and is joined on the cast list by Emily Ratajkowski, Jonny Weston, Wes Bentley, Diana Prince, Jon Bernthal, and Shiloh Fernandez.

We Are Your Friends is a coming of age drama about what it takes to find your voice. Set in the world of electronic music and Hollywood nightlife, an aspiring 23 year old DJ named Cole spends his days scheming with his childhood friends and his nights working on the one track that will set the world on fire.

All of this changes when he meets a charismatic but damaged older DJ named James who takes him under his wing. Things get complicated, however, when Cole starts falling for James’ much younger girlfriend, Sophie.

With Cole’s forbidden relationship intensifying and his friendships unravelling, he must choose between love, loyalty, and the future he knows he’s destined for.

We Are Your Friends is released 28th August.

The Longest Ride – Britt Robertson Featurette

If romance is your thing then The Longest Ride is the film that you cannot miss this summer.

The Longest Ride is the latest of Nicholas Sparks’ novels to be adapted for the big screen – Craig Bolotin has been on adapting duties, while George Tillman Jr is in the director’s chair.

Britt Robertson is an actress who has been making a name for herself in recent years on both the big and small screen and she will take on the role of Sophia Danko in the film.

This is the second film of the summer for Robertson – we have already seen her in Tomorrowland: A World Beyond – and she takes centre stage in this brand new featurette.

Robertson gives us a personal introduction to her character and we get a look behind the scenes during her time filming:

The longest ride centres on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world.

As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and life altering connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple.

Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, The Longest Ride explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love.

The Longest Ride is released 19th June.

Paper Towns – Behind The Scenes With Cara Delevingne & Nat Wolff

The Fault In Our Stars was one of the most successful films of last summer and now Paper Towns is coming to the big screen in just a few weeks time.

Paper Towns sees a second John Green adapted for the big screen as Jake Schreier returns to the director’s chair.

Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff take on the central roles of Margo Roth Spiegelman and Quentin Jacobsen and this new video sees them fooling around in a new photoshoot for the film:

Paper Towns is just the second feature film for Schreier as he returns to the director’s chair for the first time since he made his debut with Robot and Frank.

Paper Towns is a coming-of-age story centring on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbour Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one. After taking him on an all-night adventure through their hometown, Margo suddenly disappears–leaving behind cryptic clues for Quentin to decipher.

The search leads Quentin and his quick-witted friends on an exhilarating adventure that is equal parts hilarious and moving. Ultimately, to track down Margo, Quentin must find a deeper understanding of true friendship–and true love.

Paper Towns is released 17th August.

Spy Latest Clip

Spy is set to be one of the comedy movies not to miss this summer and we have a brand new clip to share with you.

Spy marks the return of writer and director Paul Feig as he reunites with actress Melissa McCarthy. Spy will be their third project together after the huge success of Bridesmaids and The Heat in recent years.

McCarthy is set to take on the central role of wannabe spy Susan Cooper and is joined on the cast list by Jude Law, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Allison Janney, Morena Baccarin, Miranda Hart, and Bobby Cannavale.

Susan Cooper (McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions.

But when her partner (Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster.

If you are a comedy fan, then Spy looks set to be a movie that you cannot miss this summer.

We love Jason Statham here at FemaleFirst and he is set to return to the big screen this summer in action/comedy Spy.

Now, comedy is perhaps not the genre that we would mostly associate with the actor but director Paul Feig has revealed that he has been trying to get Statham into one of his movies for years.

The director also hinted that Statham is on top form in Spy and steals all the scenes that he is in. And he takes centre stage in this latest clip from the movie:

Spy marks the return of Feig to the director’s chair as he teams up with Melissa McCarthy for their third film project together – they have already worked on and enjoyed huge success with Bridesmaids and The Heat.

Aloha Sneak Peak

Cameron Crowe is one of my favourite directors with the likes of Almost Famous and We Bought A Zoo under his belt during his career. He is set to return to the director’s chair in September with his new film Aloha.

Aloha sees Crowe in the director’s chair as well as having penned the screenplay as he mixes elements of comedy, drama, and romance with this latest project.

He has assembled a terrific cast as Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, John Krasinski, Bill Murray, Jay Baruchel, Alec Baldwin, and Danny McBride are all on board – it really is one of the best ensemble casts of the autumn.

This brand new featurette takes behind the scenes as the cast and crew talk about the project:

Aloha follows a down-on-his-luck military contractor (Cooper) who is given the opportunity to return to the site of his greatest career triumphs in Hawaii.

While he goes in hope of professional redemption, he also seeks closure with a long-ago love (McAdams) and must deal with unexpected feelings for his partner on the project, a promising young Air Force pilot (Stone).

Aloha is released 4th September.

London Road Featurette

London Road is set to hit the big screen this summer and promises to be one of the musicals not to miss if you are a fan of this film genre.

London Road is already a critically acclaimed and award winning stage production at the National Theatre and now it has been adapted for the big screen for the first time.

The movie is based on the real events of 2006, when the bodies of five women were discovered in the Ipswich and sees Rufus Norris in the director’s chair.

This latest featurette sees the team talk about the movie and how they brought it to life as well as some great footage from the movie itself:

A great cast has been assembled for the film as Olivia Colman, Kate Fleetwood, Anita Dobson, Lynne Wilmot, and Tom Hardy are just some of the names that are on board.

London Road documents the events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street.

The film follows the community who found themselves at the epicentre of the tragic events. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, London Road tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences.

London Road premieres on 9th June via NT Live and is on general release on 12th June. Visit londonroadfilm.co.uk for more information.
