"Eventually it'll be the two of you having to figure this out… together." Netflix has debuted the full trailer for the new film from Noah Baumbach, titled Marriage Story. This premiered at the Venice, Telluride, and Toronto Film Festivals to rave reviews (read mine here) and glowing praise from pretty much everyone. "Marriage Story is a love story that reveals itself within the breakdown. With these companion trailers I wanted to show the relationship through the eyes of both characters. There are many sides to every story, and the movie embraces these different viewpoints in order to find the shared truth." Adam Driver stars as Charlie, and Scarlett Johansson stars as Nicole. The film is opening in theaters first next month before streaming. The cast includes Laura Dern, Alan Alda, Ray Liotta, Mark O'Brien, and Julie Hagerty. This is an especially beautiful, remarkably subtle trailer that captures all the ups & downs of this fine film. ›››

"If I have learned anything, it's to not get too attached." Netflix has released the official trailer for a cute, cheesy holiday romantic comedy titled Holiday in the Wild - available to watch at the end of this month. Formerly known as Christmas in the Wild, but we all know anything will sell better when you only say "holiday" instead of "Christmas" and don't offend anyone. Right. Kristin Davis plays Kate, a woman who almost cancels her adventurous African honeymoon when her husband splits. Once she has touched down in Africa, however, she gets a second chance at romance with Derek, a pilot caring for rescued elephants. Also starring Rob Lowe, with John Owen Lowe, Colin Moss, Thandi Puren, and Lynita Crofford. This looks like one of those super campy Hallmark romance movies they churn out, but this one is from Netflix. ›››

"Will you raise your voice? Are you brave enough?" Abramorama has debuted an official US trailer for the acclaimed "European breakout" documentary #Female Pleasure (yes, including the hashtag symbol) from director Barbara Miller (Forbidden Voices). The inspiring, bold doc film "shows the universal mechanisms at work that determine the position of women until today, spanning cultures, religions and continents: from Japan and India and the Somali Muslim diaspora to the Hasidic community in Brooklyn and the Catholic clergy in Europe. [Each came] to the same conclusion: the female body is subjected to male lust and first and foremost is meant for procreation, without any regard for female sexual pleasure and autonomy." Time to change that. This doc encourages the empowerment women, focusing specifically on their shared interest in sexual pleasure. Showing us "how courage, strength, and zest for life can indeed alter societal structures." ›››

"These are the end times…" Lionsgate has debuted a full-length official trailer for the film Bombshell, the new project from Oscar-winning screenwriter Charles Randolph (of The Interpreter, Love & Other Drugs, The Big Short). A few brave women decide to take on Fox News boss Roger Ailes and the toxic male culture he presided over at the propaganda network.

Bombshell stars Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie, John Lithgow, Kate McKinnon, Connie Britton, Mark Duplass, Rob Delaney, Malcolm McDowell, and Allison Janney. This is a potent, exciting trailer about a film that is definitely going to stir up some shit. I just don't like that song choice at the end! The rest of it looks very good, though. ›››
