The filmmaker’s latest project, Loving, follows the real-life couple (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga) whose union led the Supreme Court to strike down laws prohibiting interracial marriage. The couple’s last name — which all you law students already know — was, amazingly, Loving.

    'Long Strange Trip' Trailer: First Look at the Epic Grateful Dead Documentary (Exclusive)

    It’s hard to believe there has not yet been a definitive documentary about the Grateful Dead, the seminal, cultishly followed jam-band. You can get your first look at Long Strange Trip in the exclusive trailer above. Directed by Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, My Kid Could Paint That) and produced by Martin Scorsese (you already know), Long Strange Trip culls new interviews, never-seen-before footage, concert performances, acid flashbacks, and more to tell the untold story of the Grateful Dead, from their conception in Palo Alto, California, to the 1995 death of de facto leader Jerry Garcia and beyond.

    There’s a lot of chemistry, and no “spaghetti arms,” in this rare footage of Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey’s Dirty Dancing screen test. This Yahoo Movies exclusive clip, taken from a new featurette on the 30th anniversary Dirty Dancing Blu-ray, shows the two stars getting to know each other as they work through some dance steps. Swayze, an experienced ballet dancer by the time he made the film, instructs Grey to lift her chest so he doesn’t hurt her ribs. “It hurts my ribs,” she replies, giggling, as Swayze gently puts her down.

    How foreign-born 'Loving' stars Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga united for an important American love story

    The new romantic drama Loving, based on the real-life couple whose 1967 Supreme Court trial Loving v. Virginia legalized interracial marriage, is a quintessential tale of American social justice. “I kept thinking he cast me ’cause he’s just lazy,” the Australian-born Edgerton joked to Yahoo Movies (watch above) about director and Arkansas native Jeff Nichols (Mud, Take Shelter), whom the actor had just worked with on the spring release Midnight Special. Edgerton (Warrior, Black Mass) plays Richard Loving, a soft-spoken carpenter who wants nothing more than to live The Simple Life with his sweet-natured bride, Mildred Jeter (Negga).

In fact, very early in the movie, they sell their house to a lovely couple played by Sam Richardson and Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson.

    In retrospect, assuming the iconic role of Obi-Wan Kenobi was nothing compared to Ewan McGregor’s latest undertaking. Written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia (Nine Lives, Albert Nobbs) and shot by Emmanuel Lubezki (who has won the last three consecutive Academy Awards for Best Cinematography), the film imagines a 40-day trek made by Christ as he fasts, prays, soul searches, and resists the temptations of the Devil (also played by McGregor).
