Watch| New "Lincoln" Trailer from Steven Spielberg

This Daniel Day Lewis starer is highly anticipated (we would literally watch him read the dictionary). He plays one of America’s most revered presidents, Lincoln, as he confronts the challenges of the Civil War. It’s directed by Steven Spielberg, and also stars Joseph Gordon Levitt, Sally Field, and Tommy Lee Jones. 

[As the Civil War continues to rage, America’s president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves.]

Watch| Trailer for Adorable Chess Doc – "Brooklyn Castle"

The new documentary, “Brooklyn Castle,” is about a group of Brooklyn teens from I.S. 318 who, perhaps improbably, hold the winningest record for a junior high school chess team. These are the type of kids that get called “at risk” because of the circumstances they’re growing up around (more than 60 percent of them live below the poverty line). When budget cuts threaten their team, these kids step up to the plate.

If you watch the trailer and you’re heart doesn’t get all melty and gooey, check your pulse, you’re probably dead.

New Trailer from ‘Green Hornet’ Director: "The We And The I"

This new trailer for “The We And The I” comes from famed art house director, Michel Gondry. All you film buffs out there know him as the director of such movies as “The Green Hornet” and “Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind.

The French director’s latest effort is about a group of Bronx high school kids as they take the bus together for last time before heading off in different directions in life. The project has its world premiere tomorrow as the kickoff of the Directors Fortnight sidebar at the Cannes Film Festival.

The trailer is very evocative and seems to really capture the spirit of rambunctious teens on NYC public transportation.  Most of the actors are unknowns but the performances seem to also be on point (although still a bit “acty”).
Anyway, did the trailer do its job? do you want to see this when in comes out stateside later this year?
