Endearing Trailer: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl!

My & Earl - Me & Earl

Me and Earl and the Dying girl won both the Judges and audience Prizes at Sundance this year. The tale of Greg – who simply seeks to get through high school senior year anonymously but is pressured by his mom to speak to a girl he hasn’t spoken to since kindergarten – looks to be charming, offbeat, funny and maybe a wee bit poignant.

Check out the trailer after the jump. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl opens on June 12th.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – A Cozy Visit With Old Friends!

The Gang

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was, to say the least, a most unexpected global hit.

And suddenly, a sequel didn’t seem like a bad idea.

Now we have The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and, if it’s not quite got that shiny, new film intrigue, seeing it is certainly like visiting some old, dear friends.

In the sequel to the surprise hit The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, hotel proprietor Sonny Kapoor has opened a second hotel – and it the first was The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, then the second must be The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (Sonny’s English if very good – but a bit literal).

Joining the most of cast of the original is Richard Gere as Guy – an gentleman of a certain age whose looks prompt a bit of unsubtle banter.
