Netflix finally released a look at Neil Patrick Harris in The New Lemony Snicket Series and our expectations are now, incredibly, extremely high.
Netflix issued a trailer for the eight-part Lemony Snicket series, and Neil Patrick Harris is exactly and perfectly right as The Count.
The latest attempt to adopt the popular children’s book series holds true to the traditional aesthetic of the book illustrations and the first film, starring Jim Carey. What’s so different in this version is the the multi-talented and super creepy, Neil Patrick Harris playing Count Olaf.
Up until now, there was only a French-language trailer for the upcoming (and first!) animated feature adaptation of beloved children’s book The Little Prince. The English version just dropped—and it’s a longer and charming one complete with some big-name actors voicing the characters. If you’re anything like us, you’ll get a little giddy with childlike wonderment when you watch this one.
The Little Prince, which is helmed by Kung Fu Panda‘s director Mark Osborne and adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 book, will be premiering at the Cannes Film Festival next month. Its roster of A-list voice actors include Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Paul Rudd, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Benicio del Toro, Ricky Gervais, Paul Giamatti, Bud Cort and Albert Brooks.

A new trailer has been unleashed for The Giver film adaptation.
Lois Lowry Appears in a new Featurette Video For ‘The Giver’ Movie
As reported on Buzzfeed:
This new footage from The Giver, with commentary by Lois Lowry, the book’s author, offers viewers a short look inside the film.
An initial trailer was released a few weeks ago and viewers have been disconcerted by the fact that the trailer was entirely in color rather than black and white as in the novel. However, much to the pleasure of viewers, some of this new footage depicts the utopian (dystopian?) world of The Giver as it is in the novel: colorless.
The Giver stars Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep, and Brenton Thwaites; the film is slated for theatrical release on August 15, 2014.
The Weinstein Company released their first trailer for the upcoming movie The Giver. The film is a screen adaptation of the beloved children’s book of the same name. The Giver follows Jonas played by Brenton Thwaites in the film as he discovers that this utopian society is more dystopian than he once believed: it tries to deprive people of emotions and create Sameness. Jonas inherits the position of ‘Receiver of Memory.’ He will be the person who stores all the memories of the time before this society existed. Jonas begins to question things when he meets “The Giver Jeff Bridges,” who shows him the beauty and pain that exists beyond this world.The Giver was published in 1993, and received a Newbery Medal the following year. The novel begins a loosely formed series of four books: Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son the only direct sequel to The Giver. The other three books in the series were created seven years after the original book.
