Surprise! Michael Moore Made a Secret Donald Trump Movie, and It Opens This Week

With Where to Invade Next, audiences saw a different, more optimistic side of Michael Moore. It was a fairly fun movie — at least in comparison to Moore’s other films, which are typically a bit pessimistic about American politics. If you thought the outspoken documentarian might sustain that positive attitude for his next film, you were mistaken. Moore’s latest project is a documentary he’s been working on in secret, and it’s all about this election year’s most controversial candidate: Donald Trump.

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly Reunite as ‘Holmes and Watson’

No, it’s not a sequel to Step Brothers (but do we really need one, anyway?), but professional funny people Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are reuniting for another new movie, which is still pretty great news. The actors are teaming up for Holmes and Watson, in which they’ll work their hilariously juvenile magic on the iconic literary duo of Sherlock Holmes and his pal, good ol’ Watson.

Jimmy Fallon to Host the 2017 Golden Globes

Following in the footsteps of his former SNL pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon will host the 2017 Golden Globes — which should also provide a respite from the antics of Ricky Gervais, for those of you who were growing a little weary of his schtick. The big question now is whether or not Fallon can make it through the awards ceremony without laughing.

‘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. Take the latest trailer for Oliver Stone’s Snowden, for instance, which A.) Reminds you that this is a movie that is still coming out soon, and B.) Features one of the most baffling prestige-acting accents in recent memory.

‘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? The Rock is an instant selling point, even when we’re only hearing his voice. But the international trailer puts the spotlight on the titular hero, seen here in the opening scene as a cute little toddler who discovers that she has a rather magical connection to the ocean.

‘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.
