Coming Attractions Trailer Night

Local film critics Joe Barber and Bill Henry host Coming Attractions Trailer Night, a D.C. Film Society event, in which the audience gets to watch — and vote on — the preview reels of this season’s potential Hollywood blockbusters. Exactly which film trailers will be screened wasn’t set at press time, but among the possibilities: Oscar winner Jeff Bridges in the Coen Brothers True Grit remake; Disney’s continuation of a cult favorite with TRON: Legacy (also with Jeff Bridges); Julie Taymor’s The Tempest starring Helen Mirren; Colin Firth in The King’s Speech; Cher and Christina Aguilera in Burlesque; and of course the latest Harry Potter and Narnia installments. Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 7 p.m. Landmark’s E Street Cinema, 555 11th St. NW. Tickets are $8. Visit for more information and updates on the trailers to be shown.
