‘Snowden’ Trailer: Watch the Government Watch Joseph Gordon-Levitt Watch You

In some ways, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a higher-end version of James Franco but occasionally you have to wonder if we’ve allowed him to take himself a little too seriously.

‘Moana’ International Trailer Reveals a Magical Baby Moana

Perhaps understandably so, the first trailer for Disney’s Moana was a bit more preoccupied with Maui, the jovial demigod character voiced by Dwayne Johnson. What can we say?

‘Tallulah’ Trailer: Ellen Page Steals a Baby, But It’s For a Good Reason…Kind Of

Tallulah is like the bleak, bizarro version of Juno: It stars Ellen Page and Allison Janney, but instead of giving a baby away, Page steals one from an ill-equipped mom and tries to pass it off as her own. The new drama received mostly positive reviews at Sundance, and before it debuts on Netflix next month, you can watch the first trailer to see what all the fuss is about.

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ Is No Match For ‘Finding Dory’

It took 20 years for Roland Emmerich to deliver a sequel to Independence Day, a film that’s largely responsible for the modern summer blockbuster season. Unfortunately, it looks like most audiences didn’t think it was worth the wait.
