Rebecca Hall in The Awakening

Rebecca Hall in The Awakening

You may have seen Rebecca Hall in supporting roles in films such as Vicky Christina Barcelona and The Town, but as the star of The Awakening, she plays a 1920’s hoax exposer who is hired to investigate a school claiming to be haunted by the ghost of a young boy. She begins her investigation with the strong belief that there’s no such thing as ghosts, but the longer she stays in the school, the sooner she begins to question her initial assumptions. If you liked The Others, this is the perfect film for you. Check out the freaky trailer that already has us jumpy here.

The Future stars Miranda July and Hamish Linklater as Sophie and Jason, a couple whose perspective on life shifts once they adopt a cat that has one month to live. Paw Paw’s unfortunate oncoming fate inspires the couple to live as if they themselves only have one month left of their lives, and causes them to ponder their future together as a couple. Check out the quirky trailer here.

The young and talented Anton Yelchin (Star Trek) stars alongside newbie Felicity Jones (The Tempest) in Like Crazy, a romance about young love between an American college student and a British college student. After being kicked out of the States for overstaying her visa, Anna (Jones) must leave Jacob (Yelchin) behind to return to England. The two struggle to hold on to each other once they’re forced to live separate lives. The film also stars Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone), who can be seen briefly in the touching trailer. Watch it here.

If you haven’t heard of Elizabeth Olsen, her last name is sure to ring a few bells. She’s the younger sister of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, and at just 22-years-old, she’s already made her mark in the film industry. At this year’s London Film Festival you can see her star in Martha Marcy May Marlene, a drama/thriller about a young woman named Martha who, after fleeing from an abusive cult, must re-assimilate with her family while being plagued with painful memories and paranoia. This film definitely looks haunting. Take a look at the trailer here.
