It's Trailer Thursday and the inadvertent theme this week is based-on-a-true-story (mostly). See which big screen teasers have caught our eye...
1. The Fifth Estate - 1 January 2014
A transformed Benedict Cumberbatch rocks an Australian accent and a rather dodgy ‘do to play Julian Assange in this fictionalised account of the Wikileaks saga. The man himself has called the film a 'massive propaganda attack' which (sorry, Julian) sort of makes us want to watch it even more.
2. 12 Years A Slave - TBC
Brad Pitt, Michael Fassbender, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Benedict Cumberbatch share the screen in 12 Years A Slave which is based on the true story of Soloman Northup, a free man living in New York who found himself kidnapped and sold into slavery. Set in 1840's America, it's sure to appeal to fans of Django Unchained - sans Tarantino.
3. Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom
As the world celebrates Nelson Mandela's 95th birthday, we've spotted the trailer for Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom. Luther's Idris Elba and Bond girl Naomie Harris star in this stunning, Oscar-tipped biopic based on Mandela’s own autobiography.
4. Out of the Furnace - 29 November
Christian Bale and Zoe Saldana play a (very convincing!) married couple alongside Ben's brother Casey Affleck in this gritty drama about a family who become embroiled in the brutal underworld of a crime ring run by Woody Harrelson. Think Fight Club meets The Godfather with plenty of shots of a shirtless Casey. Hot.
5. Saving Mr Banks - 17 January 2014
Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks star in this heart-warming story based on the life of P.L. Travers, the author who gave us the original oversized handbag aficionado – Mary Poppins. We see Tom as Walt Disney who tries to persuade Mrs Travers to grant him the rights to make his own all-singing, all-dancing movie about everyone's favourite nanny. Turns out the bribe of a trip to Disneyland doesn't just work on kids...
