A Midsummer Night’s Dream: New trailer and promotional photos
A Midsummer Night's Dream Movies

The enduring charm of William Shakespeare’s classic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” has translated to innumerable adaptations over the years, including big screen outings like the popular 1999 Michael Hoffman feature and even, oddly enough, the 2015 animated film “Strange Magic.” More than four centuries since its original creation, the story of befuddled and betwixt friends and lovers who are literally bewitched during a wild night in the forest is as fun (and funny) as ever. Now, it’s getting another update, this one from first-time filmmaker Casey Wilder Mott, who has translated the tale into a delirious-looking Hollywood farce.

The film stars Rachael Leigh Cook as Hermia and Lily Rabe as her best friend Helena, along with Finn Wittrock as Demetrius and Hamish Linklater as Lysander, both of whom are consumed with love for Hermia (even though Helena is in love with Demetrious, it’s tangled). Mott’s cast also includes Paz De La Huerta as Hippolyta, Avan Jogia as Puck, Ted Levine as Theseus, poet Saul Williams as Oberon, singer-songwriter Mia Doi Todd as, Titania and Fran Kranz as Bottom.

The new film is set in contemporary Los Angeles — Hermia is even introduced as a “starlet” and Demetrius is a bonafide hustler — and offers up some clever sight gags (keep an eye out for that standoff between Helena and Demetrius) and what appear to some smart observations about Hollywood itself. This time, with more naughty woodland nymphs to make things really weird.

Check out our exclusive trailer for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” below.

Our gallery was update with screencaptures from the trailer, a new poster and 4 new stills. Check out:

Finn Wittrock joins ‘Last Black Man in San Francisco’ cast
Last Black Man in San Francisco

It’s Finn’s year! Wittrock has joined the cast of ‘Last Black Man in San Francisco.’ a drama that reteams Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner with A24. The two previously collaborated on the Oscar-winning Moonlight.

Joe Talbot is directing the feature that is inspired by events in Fails’ life and is based on a short the two made in 2017.

In a timely tale involving race and gentrification, Last Black Man tells of the story of a man (Fails) and his oddball best friend (Majors) who are living in San Francisco’s last and fast-dwindling Black neighborhood. They hatch a plan to buy back the  Victorian home that belonged to the man’s grandfather, searching for belonging even as they feel the city is leaving them behind.

Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Finn Wittrock and Thora Birch round out the cast.
