Watch Eddie Redmayne transform in The Danish Girl trailer
It's movie trailer mania! Leading our must-watch list of upcoming films is Tom Hooper's The Danish Girl starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander who play Einar and Gerda Wegener respectively. Their life takes an uncomfortable turn when Einar decides to become a woman after his wife innocently gets him to model as one for her painting.

The trailer that was (finally!) released yesterday is every bit emotional as we thought it would be and we can't think of anyone better than Eddie to play such a powerful role.

Fassen your seatbelts for the upcoming adaptation of Macbeth
Next is an adaptation of the Shakespeare classic Macbeth, which tells the story of General Macbeth (Michael Fassbender) and his ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard) who manipulates the former to use wicked means to take the throne.

The trailer promises a beautiful, sinister and visceral story and it is clear that Marion and Michael make a fantastic team. We can't wait for the film to hit the big screens on 3 December this year.

Will Smith plays a passionate doctor in Concussion
Sony Pictures Entertainment is shedding some light on the death and the dementia that football players face after enduring repeated head trauma during games, with new sports drama Concussion. Will Smith plays Dr Bennet Omalu, a neuropathologist who (in real life) diagnosed the first case of Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) in a former NFL player.
