Judi Dench, Ian McKellen, Gillian Anderson and Salma Hayek are among the stars due to attend the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London on Sunday.
As the summer draws to a close and autumn fast approaches it’s time to say farewell to the big blockbusters and begin to prepare ourselves for the inevitable slide into awards season.
August to October is always a strange time in cinema as distributors move away from the big tent-pole movies into the more dramatic, kudos-likely fare. But, as always, there are plenty of films that are worth getting excited about.
There’s a real mixture of trailers is week starring everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Snoopy.
This week’s brand new trailers include Simon Pegg and his talking dog, Meryl Streep rocking out and Chris Hemsworth in a role that’s a million miles away from Thor.
