Trailer Watch: Helen Hunt Leads a Girls’ Volleyball Team to Glory in “The Miracle Season”

The Miracle Season

“How many teams ever win two championships back to back? Almost none,” a high school volleyball coach (Helen Hunt) tells her team in the trailer for “The Miracle Season.” The girls of West High School seem poised to to beat the odds and claim their second consecutive victory at state championships — until their captain and star player Caroline (Danika Yarosh) dies in a tragic accident.

The team is left reeling and mourning the loss of their friend and strongest player, but it’s the coach and Caroline’s best friend Kelly (Erin Moriarty) who seem to be hit the hardest. Kelly takes over as team captain, but the girls have gone from champions to underdogs without Caroline.

After devoting themselves to the gym and the court, the girls manage to reclaim their concentration and enthusiasm and rebuild their team. They’ve become serious contenders. “You strong women.

John Travolta set to headline Speed Kills

According to Deadline, John Travolta has signed in to portray speedboat racing champion Don Aronow in Speed Kills, a new drama from director John Luessenhop (Texas Chainsaw 3D, Takers) and screenwriter David Aaron Cohen (Friday Night Lights).

The film will see Travolta as Aronow, “a womanizing multimillionaire who created the Cigarette and other speedboats and sold them to presidents, the Shah of Iran, Malcolm Forbes and pop stars. At his height, he did business with the U.S. government and drug cartels at the same time — a double life that led to his mysterious murder in 1987 while he sat in his car in Miami.”

“Once I starting learning about Don Aronow’s life, I jumped at the opportunity to bring this story to the big screen,” said director Luessenhop. “John Travolta is the perfect actor to bring Aronow’s story to life.”

Fall TV’s Top 5 New Shows

Rachel Bellwoar on Fall TV’s top five new shows…

Due to how pilots are spaced out this fall, figuring out to the right time to launch a top five list gets complicated. Wait too long and you fall behind on shows that have started airing as early as August. Submit too early and newcomers like this week’s Chance on Hulu and Dirk Gently on BBC America, don’t get a, well, chance. Then there’s personal handicaps, like lack of a Netflix subscription, that force any commentary on shows like Luke Cage to be left to a later date.

So. what is this list saying? It’s saying, out of an extensive pool of new network, basic cable, and Amazon titles, these five are the best and most worthy of your commitment this season. As a title, it’s a mouthful, but if you’ve seen how large

Pitch Premiere Review: Fox Hits a Home Run With New Baseball Drama

The best sports dramas, especially the best ones on television, understand that the people playing the sport are much more important than the games themselves. Friday Night Lights wasn’t nominated for Outstanding Drama at the Emmys multiple times because it portrayed exciting, realistic football games; it was one of the greatest shows on television for years because of how well it crafted its characters and the situations in which they found themselves. While it’s still far too early to compare Pitch to something of the caliber of Friday Night Lights, the series premiere of the new Fox drama shows quite a bit of promise.

Bryce Dallas Howard Stars In New Trailer For Disney’s Pete’S Dragon

Watch the brand new trailer for Disney’s Pete’S Dragon, featuring spectacular never-before-seen footage of Pete’s dragon, Elliot.

See the film when it flies onto the big screen in 3D August 12.

A reimagining of Disney’s cherished family film, Pete’S Dragon is the adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just so happens to be a dragon.

The movie stars Bryce Dallas Howard (“Jurassic World”), Oakes Fegley (“This is Where I Leave You”), Wes Bentley (“The Hunger Games”), Karl Urban (“Star Trek”), Oona Laurence (“Southpaw”), Isiah Whitlock, Jr. (“Cedar Rapids”) and Oscar® winner Robert Redford (“Captain America: The Winter Soldier”). The film, which is directed by David Lowery (“Ain’t Them Bodies Saints”), is written by Lowery & Toby Halbrooks based on a screenplay by Malcolm Marmorstein and produced by Jim Whitaker (“The Finest Hours,” “Friday Night Lights”), with Barrie M. Osborne (“The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” “The Great Gatsby”) serving as executive producer.

For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley).

Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Meet ‘Pete’s Dragon’ in New Trailer For David Lowery’s Disney Remake

While some may already feel burned-out by the summer movie season, there are more promising films to come. One of our most-anticipated features will arrive in mid-August. It’s David Lowery‘s follow-up to his sublime drama Ain’t Them Bodies Saints: a reboot of Disney’s 1977 Pete’s Dragon. If you’ve never seen the original, it follows a orphan kid who brings his magical dragon to a new town. With a cast featuring Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Karl Urban, and Wes Bentley, a new trailer has now arrived.

“We explored pink, just to see what would happen,” Lowery tells EW, commenting on his title character’s design. “From the get-go, the aesthetic was always to make everything feel as handmade as possible, including effects. To really have it feel like a blur between a very grounded realistic world and a world in which a big green dragon that can turn invisible can exist.” Check out the new trailer and poster below.

New Pete's Dragon Footage Shows Elliott Taking Flight

New Pete's Dragon Footage Shows Elliott Taking Flight
Earlier today, Disney debuted a new poster for their upcoming remake Pete's Dragon, along with news that the full trailer will debut tomorrow. Star Bryce Dallas Howard will debut the new footage on Access Hollywood, but for those who can't wait another day, a brief trailer teaser has arrived. This footage gives us a closer look at Oakes Fegley as Pete, along with his mighty dragon Elliott as the beast takes flight.

Disney debuted the first trailer in February, during ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 TV special. Disney also previewed this remake during their CinemaCon presentation in April, but we don't know if this new trailer will be the same as the footage shown at the convention. Pete's Dragon could be one of this summer's last big hits at the box office, opening in theaters August 12, going up against Sony's Sausage Party, Universal's Spectral and Paramount's Florence Foster Jenkins.

Pete’s Dragon Stands Tall In Latest Still As Director Talks Reimagining A Classic

Making it three for three with Entertainment Weekly scoops – following hot on the heels of new images for both Jason Bourne and Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters – the outlet has unveiled a new still for David Lowery’s (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) live-action fairytale, Pete’s Dragon.

Yes, Pete’s reptilian ally may have been camera shy up until now, but today’s all-new shot showcases the beast – bearing the name Elliot – in all its furry glory. Emerging from a 40-year hibernation, Pete’s Dragon is a total reimagining of the Disney classic, introducing newcomer Oakes Fegley in the role of Pete, a lonesome 10-year-old that takes solace in the company of a rather unusual friend.

In breathing new life into the motion picture, the House of Mouse was conscious to retain much of the creature design glimpsed in the 1977 original. According to Lowery, there were “certain things about the

The First Teaser for Pete's Dragon has Arrived

  • Cinelinx
Last week saw the debut of the first poster for Disney's upcoming Pete's Dragon remake, along with the promise of the trailer to come. Now it's arrived, and you can check it out right here to see your first look at the revamped classic.

If you're a fan of the original Pete's Dragon and eager to see what the remake will be like...well, you may have to keep waiting. The first teaser has arrived, but it does little to tell you about the movie or sell us on the need for its existence:

See what I mean? I may be coming down on it a bit harsh, but I was expecting a little bit more from it. If you know nothing of the original story, this trailer won't help new audiences out, and seems to actively avoid the whimsical nature of the movie which made it so fun to begin with.

Pete’s Dragon Lurks In First Trailer For Disney’s Re-Imagined Classic

It may seem strange for one studio to commit to the release of two re-imaginings of past glories about orphan boys living in wooded areas – especially in the same year – but this very particular trend looks set to pay off for Walt Disney Studios in spectacular fashion, as The Jungle Book charges into theatres in April, while Pete’s Dragon is scheduled to dominate late summer. Up until now, little has been seen of this project, but with the first trailer now available, we can see that something magical this way comes.

There has always been something fascinating about the idea of dragons – these mythical creatures that have inspired so many centuries of storytelling. It seems the idea of lost children, fending for themselves and discovering spectacular secrets is also fascinating, as that plot device has given us generations of tales to pass on, too.

First Trailer For David Lowery’s ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Remake

One of my favorite Sundance films of the last few years was Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, a sublime drama starring Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck and Ben Foster, which marked the break out for director David Lowery. When his follow-up was announced a few years ago, it caught us all by surprise. Yes, he jumped to a reboot of Disney’s 1977 Pete’s Dragon, tasked with reinventing “the core story,” but this time without the musical numbers of the original animated/live-action hybrid family film.

If you’ve never seen the Disney original, it follows a orphan kid who brings his magical dragon to a new town and hijinks ensue. With a cast featuring Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Redford, Karl Urban, Wes Bentley, the first trailer has arrived, which acts more like a teaser, setting up our main characters and the tone. This is one of the most promising, and curious,
