"He thought of himself as the sheriff in town." Hulu has revealed the official trailer for the documentary titled Untouchable, which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film is a look at the rise and fall of disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, featuring interviews with former colleagues and those who accused him of sexual misconduct. It's an attempt at telling the story of the "untouchable" Harvey and how his years of sexual abuse and harassment finally caught up with him in the "#MeToo era", causing him to be ousted from his own company and (hopefully) convicted in court. The film contains testimonies from several victims, including Rosanna Arquette, Paz de la Huerta, Caitlin Dulany, and Erika Rosenbaum, as well as journalist Ronan Farrow who originally broke the big story. A major film. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Ursula Macfarlane's doc Untouchable, from Hulu's YouTube: The inside story of the rise and fall of producer Harvey ...

"You ain't like them... You're better." Lionsgate UK has unveiled an official UK trailer for the indie drama Farming, which is the feature directorial debut of English actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

"The musical is timeless." Universal has revealed a behind-the-scenes preview for Tom Hooper's Cats, a new movie based on the classic Broadway/West End musical of the same name. This is just a teaser to get people excited about the actual trailer coming out in just a few days - and surprisingly it still doesn't reveal what any of the actual cats look like.
