Joker     HD720p 96MB   HD1080p 173MB
Second trailer for a stand-alone origin movie for another incarnation of The Joker. A summary so far reads: A failed stand-up comedian (Joaquin Phoenix) is driven insane and becomes a psychopathic murderer. Robert De Niro, Zazie Beetz, Bill Camp, Frances Conroy, Brian Tyree Henry, Brett Cullen and Douglas Hodge are also part of the cast. Interestingly, directed and co-written by Todd Phillips (The Hangover, War Dogs, Old School).
Movie currently takes part in the official competition in Venice. So the first reviews should become available soon.

The Laundromat     HD1080p 38MB
Satirical comedy based on the firm Mossack Fonseca. When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin (Meryl Streep) begins investigating a fake insurance policy, only to find herself down a rabbit hole of questionable dealings that can be linked to a Panama City law firm and its vested interest in helping the world’s wealthiest citizens amass even larger fortunes. The charming - and very well-dressed - founding partners (Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas) are experts in the seductive ways shell companies and offshore accounts help the rich and powerful prosper. Jeffrey Wright, Sharon Stone, David Schwimmer and Robert Patrick are also part of the cast. Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Eleven, Magic Mike, Logan Lucky), written by Scott Z. Burns (The Informant!, Contagion, Side Effects).
Movie currently takes part in the official competition in Venice. So the first reviews should become available soon.
Netflix is producing, so after a brief theatrical release it is said to start streaming October 18th. Which is the reason Apple won't host a trailer. The link above leads to a trailer with German subs and text inserts. English version on YouTube.

Official Secrets     HD720p 98MB
Drama based on a true story. In 2003, as politicians in Britain and the US angle to invade Iraq, GCHQ translator Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley) leaks a classified e-mail that urges spying on members of the UN Security Council to force through the resolution to go to war. Charged with breaking the Official Secrets Act, and facing imprisonment, Katharine and her lawyers (Ralph Fiennes) set out to defend her actions. With her life, liberty and marriage threatened, she must stand up for what she believes in. Matt Smith, Matthew Goode and Rhys Ifans are also part of the cast. Directed by Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Eye in the Sky, Rendition).
Now in limited release in the US.

The Aeronauts     HD720p 98MB
Adventure drama inspired by real events. In 1862, daredevil balloon pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) teams up with pioneering meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) to advance human knowledge of the weather and fly higher than anyone in history. While breaking records and advancing scientific discovery, their voyage to the very edge of existence helps the unlikely pair find their place in the world they have left far below them.
Looks a bit as if Michael Bay was involved in the making of the movie. After a brief theatrical release, the film will start streaming on Amazon Prime starting December 20th.
