Monsters: Dark Continent Trailer

Monsters: Dark Continent is set to hit the big screen next week and is the sequel to the 2010 film Monsters.

Tom Green is in the director’s chair this time around and has teamed up with Jay Basu to pen the screenplay. Green is best known for his TV work with Misfits and Blackout and Monsters: Dark Continent will mark his feature film directorial debut.

There is now less than a week to go until the film hits the big screen and here is a great new trailer:

Ten years on from the events of Monsters, and the ‘Infected Zones’ have now spread worldwide. In the Middle East a new insurgency has begun. At the same time there has also been a proliferation of Monsters in that region. The Army decide to draft in more numbers to help deal with this insurgency.

We follow four fresh new recruits from Detroit as they all excitedly look forward to performing what they were trained to do. At first it all seems like a game to them but things quickly change when they are given a special mission: to rescue five soldiers who have been lost deep in the Infected Zone.

The main focus of their mission is human but they are instructed to take down any creatures that get in the way along the route. We have generally learned to live along side these giant creatures as much as any other land based animal. The military only strike to control numbers.

Venturing deep into the IZ, the young troops embark on a life-altering mission through the heart of monster territory. By the time they reach their goal, they will have been forced to confront themselves with the true horrors of eradicating the alien threat.

Monsters: Dark Continent is released 1st May.

New Girlhood Trailer

May is set to be a great mix of big budget blockbusters and independent film, and Girlhood is one of the indies that is not to be missed.

Girlhood marks the return of writer and director Céline Sciamma, in what will be her first film since Tomboy back in 2011 and only the third feature film of her career to date.

The film is an intimate portrait of female friendship and a compelling and fresh coming of age story and as is being tipped as one of the best movies in this genre in recent years.

There are a couple of weeks to go until the film hits the big screen and we have a brand new clip for you to take a look at:

Girlhood is released 8th May.

Dil Dhadakne Do Music Video

Dil Dhadakne Do is set to be one of the biggest Bollywood movies to hit the big screen as Zoya Akhtar returns to the director’s chair.

Akhtar has been behind films such as Luck By Chance and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. but this is her first movie since Bombay Talkies back in 2013.

Priyanka Chopra has teamed up with Bollywood co-star, actor-producer Farhan Akhtar to lend her voice to the title track of this year’s most awaited release and the brand new video for the song has arrived:

Dil Dhadakne Do is a comedy-drama set on a cruise ship. The story begins in the sparkling lifestyle of popular Delhi socialite couple Neelam and Kamal Mehra. In celebration of their 30th wedding anniversary, they invite their family and close friends for a 10-day cruise around Turkey. A holiday that will change the lives of the Mehras forever.

As the journey progresses, the diamond-studded, champagne-swirling life of the perfect Mehra family begins to unravel. Kamal is heading into financial bankruptcy and neither he nor his wife Neelam, although portraying an image of the perfect marriage, can stand each other in private.

Their business-savvy daughter Ayesha is unhappy in her marriage and wants a divorce, escalating the drama on the high seas with her husband and mother-in-law, who are also in the family party.

Their son Kabir is the sole heir to his father’s empire and expected to save the languishing family business by marrying the only daughter of the wealthy Sood family. Except he finds himself in love with a dancer on board the ship and realises he is not cut out for business after all.

What is to become of the Mehras? With their carefully constructed facade so rapidly falling apart, how will their glittering social circle judge their personal failures? Will the Mehras survive as a family?

The track is avaliable to download on iTunes now.

Far From The Madding Crowd New Featurette

Far From The Madding Crowd is one of the May movies that I cannot wait to see as Carey Mulligan returns to the big screen.

Mulligan is a major favourite here at FemaleFirst, and she is set to take on the central role of Bathsheba Everdene, as Thomas Hardy’s classic novel is once again adapted for film.

Thomas Vinterberg is back in the director’s chair for the film, while Matthias Schoenaerts, Tom Sturridge, and Michael Sheen join Mulligan on the cast list.

However, it is not all about the cast as the film’s locations play a huge role in this movie, which was filmed in Dorset. This new featurette explores some of the film’s locations and how they helped bring this iconic novel to life:

Far From The Madding Crowd is the story of independent, beautiful and headstrong Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan), who attracts three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak (Schoenaerts), a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; Frank Troy (Sturridge), a handsome and reckless Sergeant; and William Boldwood (Sheen), a prosperous and mature bachelor.

This timeless story of Bathsheba’s choices and passions explores the nature of relationships and love – as well as the human ability to overcome hardships through resilience and perseverance.

Far From The Madding Crowd is released 1st May.

Mad Max Legacy Trailer

There is now just a month to go before Mad Max: Fury Road is set to hit the big screen and promises to be unlike any other action movie that we will see this year.

Mad Max: Fury Road comes thirty six years after we were introduced to this character for the first time and thirty years after Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome was released in 1985.

This new legacy trailer looks back at the original movies and ahead to what is in store in Fury Road:

Fury Road sees George Miller – who directed the first three films – return to the director’s chair, while Tom Hardy takes over the role of Max Rockatansky.

Hardy is joined on the cast list by Charlize Theron, Zoe Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa.

They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

There are some great blockbusters movies heading our way between now and the end of the summer, but I doubt very much that we will see another film like Mad Max: Fury Road this year. I have my fingers tightly crossed that it is going to live up to all of what the trailer promises.

Mad Max: Fury Road is released 14th May.

The Tribe Trailer

The Tribe has already won over critics and audiences at the Cannes Film Festival and London Film Festival last year, and now we are just a handful of weeks away before the movie hits the big screen.

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

The Tribe is written and directed by Ukrainian filmmaker Myroslav Slaboshpytskiy & tells the story of a deaf mute teenager who enters a specialized boarding school where, to survive, he becomes part of a wild organization – the tribe.

His love for one of the concubines will unwillingly lead him to break all the unwritten rules within the Tribe’s hierarchy.

The Tribe is released 15th May

Avengers: Age of Ulton Clip

There is now less than a week to go before Avengers: Age of Ultron blasts on to the big screen – I think it is fair to say that it is going to be a HUGE box office success.

We have already been treated to a couple of great clips this week and now we have a third to share with you:

Age of Ultron is set to be a bigger and darker action packed ride as Joss Whedon returns to the director’s chair and is also on writing duties.

However, this will be the last time that we will see him at the helm of an Avengers film as he will not be directing Infinity War Part 1 and Part 2 – that job has fallen to Anthony and Joe Russo.

When Tony Stark jumpstarts a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as they battle to save the planet from destruction at the hands of the villainous Ultron.

Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, and Jeremy Renner are back, while we will be introduced to James Spader, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, and Aaron Taylor Johnson as Ultron, The Vision, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver.

Avengers: Age of Ultron is released 23rd April.

Ant-Man New Full Length Trailer

Ant-Man is the second of two Marvel films that we are going to be treated to this year and is set to be a summer movie that is not to be missed.

I have to say, Ant-Man is not a Marvel character that I know much about, but this new trailer promises that we are in for another great big screen experience.

Peyton Reed is in the director’s chair for the film, while Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, and Michael Peña will make up the cast list.

The brand new full length trailer has arrived – take a look:

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.

Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

Ant-Man is released 17th July
