Damien Chazelle’s new film couldn’t be further away from his feature debut, Whiplash, but it looks pretty amazing in the new trailer, Dreamers. Check it out after the break.

La La Land will be in theaters on December 9th.

The first trailer for Saban’s Power Rangers was screened today at New York Comic-Con 2016. It is a lot less cheesy than I was expecting – though there are some familiar moments that seem pretty traditional for superhero movies.

Three friends who are in a major rut decide to throw a party for one’s 30th birthday.

So, check out the trailer after the break. Dirty 30 will be in select theaters and on Digital HD on Friday, September 23rd, with the DVD becoming available exclusively at Target on Tuesday, September 27th.
