Although he’ll be seen in the next Hollywood productions from Martin Scorsese and George Clooney, this year’s best actor winner Jean Dujardin is still splitting his time up with foreign productions and we’ve got the first look at one today. When we first heard about the thriller Mobius it sounded like a strong, but standard entry into the genre, with a promising cast also including Pulp Fiction‘s Tim Roth and The Kid with a Bike‘s Cécile De France, but this initial trailer sells it as much more.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
