HEIST

www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvJDL8v8lTk

This movie is the anti-Ocean's Eleven.

Forget pretty men or glamour boys. Instead, you get a ruthless godfather (Robert De Niro), scruffy not-so-famous dude (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), ex-wrestler (Dave Bautista) and a has-been babe (Kate Bosworth).

To rip off riverboat casino big-shot (De Niro), Morgan and his gang of thieves hijack a bus for a getaway - think Speed (1994) meets Heat (1995), an earlier heist film which starred De Niro doing the looting.

"You need to fold your hand and walk away from the table," De Niro threatens Morgan with stern gambling talk.

Anne Hathaway would be absolutely shocked that this Ageing Bull just played her sweet old intern in The Intern.

Seriously, girl, you just never know who you hire these days.


THE FOREST

Game Of Thrones actress Natalie Dormer (right) looks for her missing twin sister in the Aokigahara "suicide forest" at the foot of Mount Fuji.

"Forest is very dangerous," a Japanese woman warns her.

Taylor Kinney (TV's Chicago Fire) plays the man who guides her and, since he is Lady Gaga's real-life fiance, this crazy stuff probably isn't too nuts for him.

This trailer about dead spirits in a supernatural green zone is totally been-there-seen-that-un- scary, although there is an interesting Psycho-homage shower scene.
