Black Panther     HD720p 83MB   HD1080p 159MB
Second trailer for another movie set in the Marvel Comic Universe, which, for a change, doesn't star "another white dude". It follows T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman) who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda, returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, his mettle as king - and Black Panther - is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker and Andy Serkis are also part of the cast. Directed by Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station).

The New Mutants     HD720p 72MB
First trailer for another addition to the ever expanding X-Men universe, this time in the form of what looks like to be something very close to a horror movie. Info available so far reads: Five young mutants (Maisie Williams, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt), just discovering their abilities while held in a secret facility against their will, fight to escape their past sins and save themselves. Directed by Josh Boone (The Fault in Our Stars, Stuck in Love).

Wonder Wheel     HD720p 60MB
Trailer for the annual movie written and directed by Woody Allen (Midnight in Paris, Magic in the Moonlight, Irrational Man). This time it's a drama set in Coney Island in the 1950s. A lifeguard (Justin Timberlake) tells us a story that just might be filtered through his vivid imagination: a middle-aged carousel operator (James Belushi) and his beleaguered wife (Kate Winslet), who eke out a living on the boardwalk, are visited by his estranged daughter (Juno Temple)—a situation from which layer upon layer of all-too-human complications develop.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties     HD720p 26MB
Coming of age movie directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Rabbit Hole, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus), based on a short story from Neil Gaiman. Strap yourself in for a cosmic ride, because the aliens have landed ... in Croydon. One night in the 1970s, fanzine-toting teen Enn (Alex Sharp) and his punk buddies crash a party only to find a house full of groovy extra-terrestrials in skin-tight clobber. One alien, intergalactic megababe Zan (Elle Fanning), is spellbound by Enn. She swiftly ditches her species for a suburban safari with the homo sapien, and on their odyssey they encounter cockney svengali Queen Boadicea (Nicole Kidman). Matt Lucas and Ruth Wilson are also part of the cast.
Many festival reviewers were just as confused as I was after watching the trailer.

78/52     HD720p 53MB
Documentary that takes a look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho. The screeching strings, the plunging knife, the slow zoom out from a lifeless eyeball: in 1960, the film changed film history forever with its taboo-shattering shower scene. The title refers to the 78 camera set-ups and 52 edits over the course of 3 minutes.
Now in limited release in the US and available on streaming platforms.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi     HD720p 91MB   HD1080p 167MB
Full trailer for the eighth episode, written and directed by Rian Johnson (Looper, Brick, Brothers Bloom). There isn't much yet in terms of official summary other than Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe and Luke Skywalker. But I'm reasonably confident it will be one of the Top Ten Star Wars movies. Many actors from the last few decades return, new additions are Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran. Last time it was Daniel Craig, this time imdb lists Tom Hardy as a possible stormtrooper.
Director Johnson recommends not watching the trailer because he thinks you should go into the movie "blind".

Justice League     HD720p 110MB   HD1080p 200MB
Final trailer for this comic book adaptation (mostly) directed by Zack Snyder (Man of Steel, 300, Sucker Punch). Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman's selfless act, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot), to face an even greater enemy. Together, the two work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes - Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) - it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions. J.K. Simmons, Amy Adams, Connie Nielsen, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Amber Heard, Joe Morton, Billy Crudup, Ciarán Hinds, Kiersey Clemons, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg and Henry Cavill are listed as cast members.

Crooked House     HD720p 8MB
Another adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel. The suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a wealthy patriarch is investigated by spy-turned-private-detective Charles Hayward (Max Irons), who is lured by his former lover to catch her grandfather's murderer before Scotland Yard exposes dark family secrets. On the sprawling estate, amidst a poisonous atmosphere of bitterness, resentment and jealousy in a truly crooked house, Hayward encounters three generations of the dynasty, including a theater actress (Gillian Anderson), the old man's widow 50 years his junior (Christina Hendricks), and the family matriarch Lady Edith de Haviland (Glenn Close). Julian Sands, Christian McKay, Amanda Abbington and Terence Stamp are also part of the cast. Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (Dark Places, Sarah's Key).
Certainly not as high profile as the upcoming Orient Express, but maybe still worth a look.

Replicas     HD720p 15MB

Will it be so bad that it will be good again?

Roman J. Israel, Esq.     HD720p 95MB
Thriller drama set in the underbelly of the overburdened Los Angeles criminal court system. When first we meet Roman (Denzel Washington), a driven, idealistic defense attorney, he is working behind the scenes, preparing cases in a shabby, book-strewn office and letting his boss perform in the courtroom. But when his boss is suddenly unable to work and Roman must collaborate with a richer, slicker, more ruthless attorney (Colin Farrell), what might have been an ordinary case becomes a test of Roman's ethics and his nerve. Carmen Ejogo is also part of the cast. Written and directed by Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler).
Pleased to read in reviews that Washington plays a different character than he does most of the time.

Pacific Rim Uprising     HD720p 85MB   HD1080p 161MB
Full trailer for the sequel to the globe-spanning conflict between otherworldly monsters of mass destruction and the human-piloted super-machines built to vanquish them. The first movie was only a prelude to the all-out assault on humanity. Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), son of Stacker Pentecost, reunites with Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) to lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots, including rival Lambert (Scott Eastwood) and 15-year-old hacker Amara (Cailee Spaeny), against a new Kaiju threat. Burn Gorman and Charlie Day also return, Jing Tian is another cast addition. Guillermo del Toro doesn't direct, he has a producing credit.

Molly's Game     HD720p 77MB
Not that it was really necessary since I was already completely sold by the first one, another trailer for this thriller that tells the story of Molly Bloom (Jessica Chastain) a beautiful, young, Olympic-class skier who ran the world's most exclusive high-stakes poker game for a decade before being arrested. Her players included Hollywood royalty, sports stars, business titans and finally, unbeknownst to her, the Russian mob. Her only ally was her criminal defense lawyer (Idris Elba), who learned that there was much more to Molly than the tabloids led us to believe. Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, Chris O'Dowd and Bill Camp are also part of the cast. Directorial debut of renowned screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network, Steve Jobs, The West Wing).

Trailer for the latest relationship drama directed by Drake Doremus (Breathe In, Like Crazy, Equals). It's about two young Los Angelenos (Nicholas Hoult, Laia Costa) navigating a social media-driven hookup culture begin a relationship that pushes both emotional and physical boundaries.
Festival reviews were quite mixed.

The Divine Order - Die göttliche Ordnung     HD720p 70MB
Feel-good political drama from Switzerland. Set in 1971 where, despite the worldwide social upheavals of the previous decade, women were still denied the right to vote. When unassuming and dutiful housewife Nora is forbidden by her husband to take a part-time job, her frustration leads to her becoming the poster child of her town’s suffragette movement. Her newfound celebrity brings humiliation, threats, and the potential end to her marriage, but, refusing to back down, she convinces the women in her village to go on strike.
It should be pointed out that it took twenty years more until women were fully allowed to vote in the last canton. Switzerland's entry for the foreign-language Oscar race. A record 92 countries have submitted movies this year.
