"I represent why you should never play cards with strangers." IFC FIlms has debuted an official trailer for a documentary titled Dealt, introducing us to and telling the story of Richard Turner, a world famous magician who is completely blind. Turner went blind as a child, and then dedicated his life to learning how to do things that one can't do when they're blind - including becoming an expert in sleight of hand and card tricks. I've been looking forward to seeing this doc ever since I first heard about it earlier this year. I love what Turner says in this trailer about how he wants to be known for what he does on its own merit. I wish I could go see him perform live somewhere. This really seems like a fascinating and fantastic doc. Deal me in. ›››
"Well, we don't really know what me is, do we?" Open Road Films has unveiled an official trailer for All I See Is You, the latest from director Marc Forster (of Stranger Than Fiction, The Kite Runner, Quantum of Solace, World War Z). Blake Lively stars as a woman who was blinded in a near-fatal car accident when she was young. She now lives in Thailand, happily married to her husband, played by Jason Clarke. When she receives implants and can see again, their lives and relationship are upended by the truths that come to light. The cast includes Yvonne Strahovski, Danny Huston, Ahna O'Reilly, and Wes Chatham. This seems like an odd relationship drama that has been quietly sitting on the shelf all year. It almost seems like there's some twist in this where it turns out he's a serial killer, or something, I can't really tell. Take a look. ›››
With Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the sequel to 2014’s Kingsman: The Secret Service, director Matthew Vaughn has once again tailored a film that’s an outlandish mix of over-the-top action, subversive social commentary, and oddly sweet character dynamics. As absurd, ultra-violent, and darkly humorous as it can get, The Golden Circle remembers that its heart and humor comes from remaining emotionally invested in its endearing protagonists.
The Golden Circle fearlessly lays waste to much of what was so precisely established in the first film as the Kingsman organization comes under attack from a mysterious drug cartel. After Eggsy's (Taron Egerton) still relatively new world is violently turned upside down he, along with his tech guru Merlin, must seek aid from the Kingsman’s American counterparts, the Statesman. Along the way, Eggsy is shocked to discover that his Kingsman mentor Harry Hart (Colin Firth) is, in fact, still alive albeit not quite his old self.
