Love and Mercy

A teaser trailer was released this week for Love & Mercy, the Beach Boys biopic starring Paul Dano and later John Cusack as genius musician Brian Wilson. Elizabeth Banks and Paul Giamatti costar in the film, which looks artful and introspective, and received warm buzz on the festival circuit last year. It opens in America in June. Watch 'Love & Mercy' Teaser Trailer.

Out in Britain in June, Mr Holmes stars Ian McKellen as an ageing Sherlock Holmes trying to solve a nagging unsolved mystery. The film reunites McKellen with Gods & Monsters director Bill Condon, and costars include Laura Linney and newcomer Milo Parker. The new teaser trailer promises an intriguing costume-style whodunit. Watch 'Mr Holmes' Teaser Trailer.


There's also a new trailer for Self/less, a sci-fi movie centring on Ben Kingsley as a retiring architect who puts himself into suspended animation and inhabits Ryan Reynolds' body. Also starring Michelle Dockery and Matthew Goode, the film looks like a stylish thriller about the cost of immortality. It opens at the end of July. Watch 'Selfless' Trailer.

And the first trailer has arrived for The Lady in the Van, based on a true story from screenwriter Alan Bennet's life about a woman lived in a van in his driveway for 15 years. It looks lively and funny, and a clear awards contender for Maggie Smith in the title role. The film costars Jim Broadbent, Dominic Cooper, James Corden and Frances de la Tour, and opens in November. Watch 'Lady In The Van' Trailer.
