"I'm not like you, Bif, I can't just open up like a lotus flower." Entertainment One in the UK has debuted an official trailer for the filming Finding Your Feet, directed by Richard Loncraine. The romantic comedy stars acclaimed actress Imelda Staunton as a "middle class, judgmental snob" who discovers her husband has been having an affair with her best friend. So she moves in with her estranged, bohemian, older sister Bif, played by Celia Imrie, and is dragged along to her community dance class where she starts to find some romance again. The full cast includes Timothy Spall, Joanna Lumley, David Hayman, and John Sessions. This seems like an amusing, charming film with a superb performance from Staunton. Have fun. ›››
"The tower is all that stands between light and darkness…" Sony has revealed a brand new "international" trailer for The Dark Tower adaptation, based on Stephen King's popular book series. Directed by Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel, this gritty sci-fi western is about a legendary "Gunslinger" roaming an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the Man in Black, who wants to destroy the fabled Tower. Idris Elba stars as Roland Deschain, with Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. Also starring Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Tom Taylor, Katheryn Winnick, Alex McGregor, Nicholas Hamilton, Claudia Kim, and Michael Barbieri. This is honestly looking better and better with every trailer. And you know - even if this movie isn't that great, I still think Idris Elba is a totally badass gunslinger. Love him. ›››

Now this is a unique, totally fun short documentary. Fish Story is a short doc produced by The Guardian, telling the tall tale of a event that happened years ago. The story goes that in North Wales, a weatherman named Michael Fish was the host behind an event where people with "fishy" last names (Mrs. Crab, Mr. Salmon, Mrs. Bass, Mr. Mullet) would attend a dinner and be served the fish of their last name. Filmmaker Charlie Lyne attempts to figure out if the story is actually true and reach the people who put it together. I admire the way this doc is presented, with the oral storytelling and nice, clean visuals to keep us captivated. ›››
"Our planet is unique…" BBC Films has unveiled the first official trailer for the documentary film Earth: One Amazing Day, the sequel to the stunning nature documentary Earth from 2007. Earth was a feature-length documentary version of the TV series "Planet Earth", and this one is also once again a feature-length version of the follow-up TV series "Planet Earth II" - which aired on BBC in 2016. This features a narration by Robert Redford, and presents a vivid look at one full day on our planet. "Told with humour, intimacy, emotion and a jaw-dropping sense of cinematic splendour, Earth: One Amazing Day is the enchanting big screen-family friendly adventure that spectacularly highlights how every day is filled with more unseen dramas and wonders than you can possibly imagine." This looks wonderful and awe-inspiring in many ways. ›››
"And what do you think happened?" Oscilloscope Labs has debuted an official trailer for the acclaimed documentary Santoalla, described as a "a true crime film as gripping as Making a Murderer or Serial." The intimate documentary tells the story of a Dutch couple, Martin and Margo Verfondern, who moved to a remote Spanish village on the island of Santoalla to start a new life living off of the land. Things seemed to be great at first but eventually they had some conflicts with the local Spanish residents, and then one day Martin disappeared. This doc tries to investigate what happened and looks back at the story of this couple and their desire for a good life. "As this once forgotten landscape is thrust into the center of controversy, Margo finds herself searching not only for answers, but for the strength to persevere." This looks a bit scary. ›››
