The Personal History of David Copperfield     HD1080p 21MB
UK trailer for Armando Iannucci's (The Death of Stalin,In the Loop,) fresh and distinctive take on Charles Dickens’ novel. Set in the 1840’s, it chronicles the life of its iconic title character (Dev Patel) as he navigates a chaotic world to find his elusive place within it. From his unhappy childhood to the discovery of his gift as a storyteller and writer, his journey is by turns hilarious and tragic, but always full of life, colour and humanity. Tilda Swinton, Hugh Laurie, Peter Capaldi, Ben Whishaw, Gwendoline Christie and Benedict Wong are also part of the cast.
Festival reviews are predominantly good, and the trailer is hilarious.

The Gentlemen     HD720p 35MB
Trailer for the latest action comedy written and directed by Guy Ritchie (Snatch., Aladdin, RocknRolla). It follows American expat Mickey Pearson (Matthew McConaughey) who built a highly profitable marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that he’s looking to cash out of the business forever it triggers plots, schemes, bribery and blackmail in an attempt to steal his domain out from under him. Charlie Hunnam, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery, Jeremy Strong, Eddie Marsan, Colin Farrell and Hugh Grant are also part of the cast. Especially the latter one looks highly amusing.
It has a US release date in January which I consider mildly alarming.

I Lost My Body - J'ai perdu mon corps     HD1080p 15MB
Dialogue free trailer for this animated movie from France with a rather unusual plot. In a Parisian laboratory, a severed hand escapes its unhappy fate and sets out to reconnect with its body. During a hair-raising escapade across the city, the extremity fends off pigeons and rats alike to reunite with pizza boy Naoufel. Its memories of Naoufel and his love for librarian Gabrielle may provide answers about what caused the hand's separation, and a poetic backdrop for a possible reunion between the three.
Was very well received in Cannes. Limited theatrical release starting November 15th, will start streaming on Netflix November 29th.

6 Underground     HD1080p 90MB
Trailer for the latest action movie from auteur Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, The Rock). The description on IMDb reads: Meet a new kind of action hero. Six untraceable agents, totally off the grid. They've buried their pasts so they can change the future. The description on YouTube reads: Ryan Reynolds, Michael Bay and a metric f**ck-load of dynamite. It is written by the duo who wrote the screenplays for the Deadpool and the Zombieland movies.
It is kind of insane that an action movie like this will start streaming on Netflix December 13th. Then again, it does kind of look like a best-of compilation of previous Mission: Impossible movies.

Spies in Disguise     HD720p 36MB
Another full trailer for this animated action comedy. Super spy Lance Sterling (Will Smith) and scientist Walter Beckett (Tom Holland) are almost exact opposites. Lance is smooth, suave and debonair. Walter is... not. But what Walter lacks in social skills he makes up for in smarts and invention, creating the awesome gadgets Lance uses on his epic missions. But when events take an unexpected turn, Walter and Lance suddenly have to rely on each other in a whole new way. Ben Mendelsohn, Karen Gillan, Rashida Jones, DJ Khaled and Masi Oka will also provide their voices.
