'Black Sea' Trailer Promises Jude Law, U-boats, and Nazi Gold

2015's first month is starting look surprisingly solid.

Could January 2015 be the best January ever?

January is traditionally the dump month, when last minute Oscar hopefuls gain steam and studios fill multiplex screens with movies they'd prefer not to have on their permanent records. But that's all changing thanks to an overloaded release schedule. Today, if a studio has a good movie, it makes more sense to put it out when someone has time to actually see it then stack on top of industry-approved seasonal dates. A radical practice.

New 'Theory of Everything' trailer plays up Eddie Redmayne's Stephen Hawking transformation

Felicity Jones costars in James Marsh's biopic

A whiff of “Man on Wire" director James Marsh's "The Theory of Everything" should convince you the Stephen Hawking biopic is a Best Picture contender (and we would agree with you). Shades of "A Beautiful Mind," Eddie Redmayne's all-in performance as the paralysed Professor Hawking, a breakout role for critical darling Felicity Jones, and praise from the festival circuit all add up to Oscar. Some things aren't physics.

'Exodus: Gods and Kings' trailer turns Christian Bale's Moses into a superhero

Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton star in front of Ridley Scott's green screen.

"Your parents never told you the truth. The year of your birth, there was a prophecy that our leader would be born to liberate us. That leader is you."

Yes, that's basically a line from the recent "Jupiter Ascending" trailer, but no, this exact quote comes from "Exodus: Gods and Kings," the latest Biblical epic attempting to shatter the Christmastime box office. From "Gladiator" and "The Counselor" director Ridley Scott, "Exodus" retells the classic Moses legend with ex-Batman Christian Bale as the chosen one and Joel Edgerton as Ramesses, wearing more eye-liner than Jack Nicholson's Joker. This is The Good Book as The Comic Book.

Via the magic of Twitter, Crowe debuted the first trailer for the war drama, a shiny blockbuster reminiscent of the high-impact Hollywood productions that shaped the actor's career. When it's not blowing up World War I battlefields, it's swelling with emotional power strings.

Watch designer Jum Nakao create a 'Marie Antoinette'-inspired dress out of Sofia Coppola's script

The Academy celebrates Hollywood costumers with an artistic commission

Japanese-Brazilian fashion designer Jum Nakao is fascinated by paper. He sees the material as both "very ephemeral, very fragile" and, with the right words scribbled across it, powerful enough to change the world. So when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences asked Nakao to create a piece celebrating the opening of its upcoming "Hollywood Costume," the artist naturally went back to the page.

Annapurna to produce Richard Linklater's 'Dazed' spiritual sequel

'That’s What I’m Talking About' is a baseball dramedy set in the 1980s

Richard Linklater grew into one of North America's premiere filmmaking voices with films like "Slacker," "Dazed and Confused," "School of Rock," "Bernie" and the "Before" trilogy, but it took this year's "Boyhood" for full approval from auteur connoisseur Megan Ellison. Deadline reports that Ellison's artistically-inclined production company Annapurna Pictures will produce Linklater's next film, what he refers to as a "spiritual sequel" to "Dazed."
