Clips of the Week April 19

This week features clips for some of the most highly-anticipated films of the year as well as a few that might not be on your radar yet. And Billy Boyd singing.

Let’s start with Paper Towns, a new film based on the novel by John Green (The Fault in our Stars). It stars Cara Delevingne and Nat Wolff. It’s released in the UK on August 20.

Just a reminder, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is released on DVD and Blu-Ray tomorrow. To celebrate, here’s a clip looking at the making of the film’s theme, The Last Goodbye, as sung by Billy Boyd.

Carey Mulligan and Meryl Streep lead the cast of Surfragette,  which tells the story of the ordinary British women at the turn of the last century who risked everything in the fight for equality and the right to vote. It’ll be in UK cinemas on October 30 (so odds-on it’ll be at this year’s BFI London Film Festival).

Inside Out is the new film from Pixar Animation and will be in cinemas this summer. It features the voices of Amy Poehler, Bill Hader and Mindy Kaling. The film will have its world premiere as part of this year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Love & Mercy stars Paul Dano and John Cusack both playing Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson. The film follows Wilson’s story from his rise to fame with the band to his nervous breakdown and relationship with controversial therapist Dr Eugene Landy. The supporting cast also includes Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks – I think this could be good!

Officially, the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice wasn’t supposed to be released until tomorrow but then it leaked online. So Warner Bros took the decision to release it early. So here it is:

Ok, so of course I’m not going to ignore the trailer that’s taken the world by storm this week – by Saturday morning the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens had been viewed over 30 million times. I’ve watched it six times (so far). Feast your eyes on pure joy:
