Ghost in the Shell HD720p 89MB HD1080p 163MB
Second trailer for the live-action adaptation of a classic Japanese comic book series. It follows Major (Scarlett JJohansson), a special ops, one-of-a-kind human-cyborg hybrid, who leads the elite task force Section 9. Devoted to stopping the most dangerous criminals and extremists, Section 9 is faced with an enemy whose singular goal is to wipe out Hanka Robotic's advancements in cyber technology. Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Rila Fukushima are also part of the cast. Directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman).
It'll be interesting to see how much of the complexity of the animated movie will make it into the Hollywood version.
The Beguiled HD720p 69MB
First trailer for the latest movie from Sofia Coppola (Marie Antoinette, Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides), a remake of a 1971 movie from Don Siegel that starred Clint Eastwood. It's a drama that unfolds in Virginia at a girls' school during the Civil War where the young women have been sheltered from the outside world. When a wounded Union soldier (Colin Farrell) is discovered and taken in, the house is taken over with sexual tension, rivalries and an unexpected turn of events. Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Oona Laurence are also past of the cast.
The Circle HD720p 87MB
Full trailer for this sci-fi thriller based on a book by Dave Eggers. As she rises through the ranks of the world's largest tech and social media company, The Circle, Mae (Emma Watson) is encouraged by company founder Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks) to live her life with complete transparency. But no one is really safe when everyone is watching. John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, Bill Paxton, Karen Gillan and Glenne Headly are also part of the cast. Directed by James Ponsoldt (The Spectacular Now, Smashed, The End of the Tour).
My Cousin Rachel HD720p 14MB
UK trailer for this dark romance, an adaptation of the novel by Daphne Du Maurier. It tells the story of a young Englishman (Sam Claflin) who plots revenge against his mysterious, beautiful cousin (Rachel Weisz), believing that she murdered his guardian. But his feelings become complicated as he finds himself falling under the beguiling spell of her charms. Holliday Grainger and Iain Glen are also part of the cast. Directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Morning Glory, Hyde Park on Hudson).
I find the use of a version of "Wicked Game" in the trailer a little distracting.
Lovesong HD720p 77MB
Low key romantic drama about two friends, Sarah and Mindy, who are in their early twenties. Their lives may be different but both find their friendship reassuring as they struggle with their individual uncertainties. Sarah (Riley Keough), married with an energetic three-year-old daughter and a husband who she barely sees, is particularly struggling. Mindy (Jena Malone) decides to take Sarah on a road trip, intending to inject some playfulness back into her life. During the trip the women go out drinking. One thing quickly leads to another.

The Circle - I read the book ages ago, and I remember being disappointed by it, though I don't remember why. So I rented this when it came out on DVD and sure enough, I was disappointed by the movie, too. I guess they didn't change enough of it from the book to make it worthwhile. And I still can't find a movie that I enjoy watching Emma Watson in. =/
Yes, The Circle was really bad. I certainly sympathise with the core message, applying it with a sledge hammer is counter-productive.
As much as I like her personally, without going through Watson's whole movie list, I fear I have to agree. :(
