Stan & Ollie Trailer: Laurel and Hardy Get the Memoir Treatment

0

Slapstick comedy legends Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy get their own big screen memoir in the trailer for Filth director Jon S. Baird's Stan & Ollie. The movie stars Steve Coogan and John C. Reilly and is scheduled to make its world premiere as the closing title at the 2018 BFI London Film Festival next month.

Scripted by Jeff Pope (who also cowrote the Oscar-nominated Philomena with Coogan), Stan & Ollie follows Laurel (Coogan) and Hardy (Reilly) as they embark upon a music hall tour across Britain and Ireland in the early 1950s. Nina Arianda (Goliath) and Shirley Henderson (the Bridget Jones movies) costar in the film as Laurel and Hardy's wives Ida Kitaeva and Lucille - a "formidable double act in their own right", as the movie's synopsis puts it. They are joined in the supporting cast here by names like Danny Huston (Wonder Woman), Rufus Jones (Camping) and Susy Kane (House of Anubis).

Laurel and Hardy's European tour ultimately served as the swan-song to their prolific career, due to the general public's declining interest in their comedy act and issues like Hardy's failing health. Nevertheless, the duo had already secured their place in film history by that point and collaborated on well over one hundred shorts and feature-length movies (of both the silent and sound variety), over the course of some three decades. You can watch the trailer for Stan & Ollie in the space below.

Stan & Ollie, as it were, is one of two Reilly vehicles that will screen at the BFI London Film Festival in a few weeks. The other movie in question is The Sisters Brothers, a quirky western that doubles as A Prophet director Jacques Audiard's english-language feature debut. Sisters Brothers was only just added to the event today and will be joined by such fall 2018 releases (and fellow awards contenders) as British filmmaker Steve McQueen's crime-thriller Widows at the festival.

While Sony Pictures Classics (which is distributing the eOne title in the U.S.) has yet to set a domestic launch day for Stan & Ollie, there's a reasonable chance the film will arrive in time to qualify for next year's Oscars. The movie certainly seems like a potential awards season contender, with Coogan and Reilly delivering solid performances that come off as poignant, touching and funny in the trailer alone (to mention nothing of the impressive makeup and prosthetics on Reilly). However, the film's reception at the London Film Festival may have the final say on that matter.

Captain Marvel Trailer Reveals FIRST Footage From Marvel Film

Marvel Studios released the first Captain Marvel movie trailer. Starring Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the 90s-set film will tell the origin story of the titular superhero. The Marvel Cinematic Universe marked its 10 year anniversary in 2018 with the release of three films - the wildly successful Black Panther, the monumental Avengers: Infinity War, and a solid sequel in Ant-Man and the Wasp. However, fans are looking ahead to the next Marvel Studios release and the company's first of 2019: Captain Marvel.

With Larson starring as Captain Marvel, the film marks the first MCU entry to be headlined solely by a female character, following Evangeline Lilly's The Wasp co-headlining the Ant-Man sequel. Captain Marvel also marks the first MCU film to be co-directed by a woman with the team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck at the helm. As such, Captain Marvel will feature quite a few firsts for Marvel Studios, and fans are understandably excited to get their first glimpse of the movie - especially after the first look at Larson as Captain Marvel arrived arrived earlier this month - and they now can.

Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva and Mckenna Grace as young Carol. In addition to Fury, Captain Marvel sees the return of fellow MCU characters Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Korath (Djimon Hounsou). See the trailer below.

The trailer offers first looks at many of the main characters, including de-aged versions of Nick Fury and Phil Coulson, who will be younger than fans have previously seen since Captain Marvel takes place in the 90s (as evidenced clearly with the shot of a Blockbuster video store). Further, the trailer offers a great deal of insight into the character of Carol Danvers, who seems to return to Earth and not be sure whether she grew up there or not. We see flashes of her life both on Earth and in space, teasing the hero Captain Marvel will become in her solo movie.

What we don't see very much of is the alien threat that Captain Marvel will face in the film, though we know it to be the Skrulls. The trailer features a voiceover from Nick Fury talking about war, and there's a brief glimpse of Mendelsohn's Talos, a member of the Skrull race. Further, there's a shot of Captain Marvel punching an old lady on a train, which may be another Skrull since they're shapeshifters. All in all, the trailer teases the Kree-Skrull War that Captain Marvel will depict, but doesn't outright showcase it. Of course, that's to be expected with a teaser trailer. Additional trailers will no doubt dive deeper into the story.

For now, fans will have to make due with the first footage from Captain Marvel, which focuses mainly on Larson's Carol Danvers and the journey she'll undergo during the film. But with Captain Marvel set to hit theaters in March 2019, it's clear this is just the beginning of Marvel Studios' marketing campaign for their first solo female superhero movie.
