Little Women, Portrait of a Lady on Fire, Little Monsters, A Hidden Life, The Angry Birds Movie 2

Little Women     HD720p 98MB
Trailer for another adaptation of the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott, this time written and directed by Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird). It unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March (Saoirse Ronan), reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters (Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen) - four young women each determined to live life on her own terms - is both timeless and timely. Timothee Chalamet plays their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern Marmee, and Meryl Streep Aunt March.

Portrait of a Lady on Fire - Portrait de la jeune fille en feu     HD1080p 35MB
Trailer from Australia for this romantic drama from France. Set in 1770, Marianne (Noémie Merlant), a painter, is commissioned to do the wedding portrait of Héloïse (Adèle Haenel), a young woman who has just left the convent. Héloïse is a reluctant bride to be and Marianne must paint her without her knowing. She observes her by day, to paint her secretly. Valeria Golino is also part of the cast. Written and directed by Céline Sciamma (Water Lilies, Girlhood, Tomboy).
Was awarded the prize for the Best Screenplay this year in Cannes, where it was very well received.

Little Monsters     HD720p 35MB
Redband trailer for this horror comedy that follows Dave (Alexander England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a serious liking to the fearless schoolteacher, Miss Caroline (Lupita Nyong’o). His intentions are complicated by the presence of the world’s most famous kids’ show personality and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections, Teddy McGiggle (Josh Gad). One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak.
The reason to see it is Lupita Nyong’o. But you have to be comfortable with lots of little kids being surrounded by zombies.

A Hidden Life     HD720p 91MB
Trailer for the latest movie written and directed by Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, The New World, The Thin Red Line), a three hour long drama based on real events. It's the story of an unsung hero, Franz Jägerstätter (August Diehl), who refused to fight for the Nazis in World War II. When the Austrian peasant farmer is faced with the threat of execution for treason, it is his unwavering faith and his love for his wife (Valerie Pachner) and children that keeps his spirit alive. Maria Simon, Tobias Moretti, Bruno Ganz, Matthias Schoenaerts, Karin Neuhäuser, Ulrich Matthes and Michael Nyqvist are also part of the cast.

The Angry Birds Movie 2     Trl1 HD720p 101MB    Tlr2 HD720p 109MB
Two trailers for the sequel in which the flightless angry birds and the scheming green piggies take their beef to the next level. When a new threat emerges that puts both Bird and Pig Island in danger, Red (Jason Sudeikis), Chuck (Josh Gad), Bomb (Danny McBride), and Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage) recruit Chuck’s sister Silver (Rachel Bloom) and team up with pigs Leonard (Bill Hader), his assistant Courtney (Awkwafina), and techpig Garry (Sterling K. Brown) to forge an unsteady truce and form an unlikely superteam to save their homes.
According to reviews, it's actually quite funny. In a somewhat aggressive, silly kind of way. Either already or soon in a theatre near you.
