We stan Keanu Reeves in leather. We stan Keanu Reeves violently avenging his dog. We stan Keanu Reeves always and forever, even more now in a hilarious cameo in new Netflix rom-com, Always Be My Maybe. The film follows two childhood sweethearts who reconnect as adults (dreamy stand-up comedian Ali Wong and Randall Park), with Reeves as the dashing romantic interest who’s dealing up “insane, freaky-ass sex.”
All the film and TV trailers to watch right now.
Always Be My Maybe
So long have we been celebrating the internet’s very own daddy Jeff Goldblum in Prada bowling shirts, releasing jazz albums, booking Glastonbury slots and living his most joyful Instagram life that we momentarily forgot that the Jurassic Park icon is actually an established and respected actor. And he’s back in a big way playing a lobotomist in eerie 50s flick, The Mountain. With undertones of Yorgis Lanthimos’ The Lobster, it’s a gorgeous visual treat high on the shock-factor, also starring X-Men star Tye Sheridan.
The Mountain is out in cinemas on 26 July.
Since we clocked Awkwafina in last summer’s diverse big-hitter Crazy Rich Asians, we have stanned the breakout star so hard. And now the rapper/actress is leading an all-asian cast for Sundance A24’s The Farewell, starring as a young woman who has to keep a huge secret in her family. Written and directed by Lulu Wang, the trailer’s already got us choked up, so we’re going to bring the tissues out en masse while we sob through the film.
The Farewell is out in cinemas on 12 July.
IT: CHAPTER TWO
“When will it end with the clowns?” We’ve been wailing to the heavens (and Stephen King). After the undisputed success of the record-breaking remake a couple of years ago, we’ve been treated to a second film, which is already generating buzz, only thanks in part to its major starry cast: Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy (X-Men, anyone?) and Bill Hader. The ever-terrifying Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise and this time we have a creepy-ass old lady to contend with. Watch the trailer at your own risk…
IT: CHAPTER TWO is out in cinemas on 6 September.
It might feel weird not to see Daisy Ridley brandishing a lightsaber for once, and clad with long red hair, but the Brit actress has stepped away from Star Wars momentarily to star in historical romantic drama Ophelia – “the real story” of the melancholic painting by John Everett Millais. Naomi Watts, Clive Owen and George MacKay also star in this reimagining of Hamlet.
Ophelia is out in cinemas on 28 June.
