It’s rare that a single minute of film dialogue can tell you everything you need to know about a character’s emotional state, but that’s the case with the above exclusive scene from the new comedy Brad’s Status, premiering Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival. Brad (Ben Stiller), looking dubious and disheveled, is getting the low-down on a mutual friend’s wedding that he wasn’t invited to from the much tanner, much healthier, and much wealthier Billy Wearslter (Jemaine Clement). Brad, as he puts it, has just been “doing his thing” — but as the clip reveals, is experiencing a crisis in confidence.
Despite the fact that they regularly beat the living snot out of each other, there is a mutual respect among the fighters enforcers of the hockey world. That aspect of the sport was lovingly portrayed in the criminally underseen 2012 comedy Goon, starring Seann William Scott as a minor league player who excels at the, uh, more physical elements of the sport.
New York’s hottest club, the Box, is back on the screen in a new romantic drama.

As revealed in the mini-movie Gunter Babysits from the upcoming home edition of Universal’s tuneful hit, things get downright scary when the bumbling Gunter (voiced by Nick Kroll) agrees to watch the expansive brood of his duet partner Rosita (Reese Witherspoon) for the night. Gunter Babysits is one of three all-new shorts available on the digital and disc versions of Sing. There’s also Love at First Sight, in which gorilla Johnny (Taran Egerton) persuades his piano teacher, Miss Crawly (voiced by the film’s writer-director Garth Jennings), to join a dating website, and Eddie’s Life Coach, where slacker sheep Eddie (John C.

Remember that Golden Globes TV spot with Emma Watson singing “Belle”? Well, you ain’t heard nothing yet.

(Watch above.)
Since it opened, director Mel Gibson has insisted that his Oscar-nominated Hacksaw Ridge is a “love film, not a war film.” The movie’s battle scenes are such a key ingredient and so relentlessly intense, though, that we’ll respectfully disagree. It’s in plain sight in the film’s much tamer first act, in which future WWII war hero Desmond Doss vies for the affection of the nurse Dorothy (Teresa Palmer). In the scene, Desmond just wants some sugar from his sweetheart, but it ain’t happening.

It’s been 12 years since ghoulish young demon Samara last stalked movie theaters in 2005’s The Ring Two, and technology has changed a lot since she last terrorized viewers of her home movie. While her return in Rings, directed by F. Javier Gutiérrez, again hinges on the idea that anyone who watches Samara’s video is marked for death, she’s finally upgraded from VHS to digital delivery, just like everyone else. Watch the first three minutes of the film above — we think you’ll be safe — to see how she’s now able to get screams from streams to airplane seatbacks.

The suit worn by Robin, Batman’s longtime sidekick, was inspired by vintage illustrations of Robin Hood.
