Do you hear that? That's the sound of Harvey and Joel Weinstein counting their 'hard earned' Oscar nominations. Oh and money, gonna be lots of that to count as well. The Weinstein Company rolled out some more trailers of its high 'award winning' hopes this past week, as well as acquiring The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, Can A Song Save Your Life, and last week's The Railway Man (no trailers for the first two, don't worry I'm waiting up day and night for those). So welcome to this week's Trailer Trashed: The Weinstein Edition.

First off, Idris Elba fans hold onto your panties, the trailer for Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom is here. The review's from TIFF haven't been as hopeful as many expected (12 Years a Slave basically sold the show), and with a life so pertinent, it makes you wonder how much of Mandela's story they've managed to fit into 146 minutes. But even from this trailer, we're in for some epic performances from Elba and Naomie Harris.


Ever wondered what it would be like to hear James Cordon sing opera? Well look no further! One Chance is the story of Paul Potts (that one from Britain's Got Talent) because apparently Simon Cowell hasn't made enough money yet. Fake welsh accents aplenty. I literally sat through this trailer cringing.


Holy smokes, Ewan McGregor and Meryl Streep in the same film. And Julia Roberts, Abigail Breslin and Dermot Mulroney. Woah, is there anyone not in August: Osage Country. Oh that guy who plays Sherlock is in it too.


And just in case any of you are living under a bucket and missed the shenanigans surrounding the release of Snowpiercer, let's sit back and bask in it's glory.
