trailer break: ‘Oceans’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer… Remember, if you don’t see this movie opening week, it’s the same thing as saying, “Fuck the coral reefs.” But hey, what have the coral reefs ever done for you, anyway? Unlike last year’s disappointing Earth, this DisneyNature film is not adapted from the BBC series Planet … more…

opening in North America April 24: ‘The Soloist,’ ‘Fighting,’ ‘Obsessed,’ ‘Earth,’ more
