While the premise seems a tad absurd, Colin Farrell’s latest film, The Lobster, seems to have a certain amount of whimsy in it which makes it a fresh take on the romance genre.
According to the official synopsis, The Lobster is a love story set in the near future where single people are arrested and transferred to a holding facility. There, they are then obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days. If they fail, they are transformed into an animal of their choosing and released into the woods.
Vanity Fair’s Richard Lawson described The Lobster as looking like “if Charlie Kaufman, Miranda July, and Wes Anderson went into the woods together and all had the same vision quest hallucination.”
Co-starring, Rachel Weisz, Jessica Barden, Olivia Colman, Ashley Jensen, Ariane Labed, Angeliki Papoulia, John C. Reilly, Léa Seydoux, Michael Smiley, and Ben Whishaw, The Lobster from director Yorgos Lanthimos arrives October 16 in the U.K. and Ireland.

In the lead up to one of the most highly-anticipated sequels of 2016, Zoolander II, we’ve seen both Zoolander and Hansel — played by Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson — close out Valentino’s runway show for fall/winter 2015, as well as several announcements of notable celebrities set to make cameo appearances. There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the movie, however, the world has been eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of the first trailer, which launched yesterday. The short kicks off with what sounds like a narration by Stephen Hawking about the Big Bang theory and evolution, before Derek interjects with his words of wisdom, seemingly questioning the name of his own movie. Zoolander II is expected to hit the silver screen during February 2016.
Not content with last year’s cinematic foray into space in Interstellar, Matt Damon is to return in Ridley Scott’s forthcoming adaptation of the Andy Weir novel The Martian. In the first trailer for the film, slated for release on November 25, we see Damon having fun with his fellow NASA crew-mates as they prepare for their trip to Mars, in a lighthearted video-log style teaser. The synopsis for the full movie is set to take a darker tone, with Damon’s character being stranded on the planet after a huge storm when his crew, played by Sebastian Stan, Kate Mara, Aksel Hennie, Jessica Chastain and Michael Pena, assume him dead. Keep an eye out for more detailed, plot-driven trailers in the coming months.
