Watch: New Trailer for Acclaimed Original Horror Movie 'Lights Out'

24 June 2016 1:42 PM, PDT

"Everyone is afraid of the dark, and that's what she feeds on." Warner Bros has debuted the second official trailer for David F. Sandberg's Lights Out, a new horror thriller that received some rave reviews after premiering at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Based on Sandberg's short film, the film is about a malevolent ghost that only appears when the lights go out, which seems like a simple concept but it's done so effectively it makes this horror completely original and very, very scary. Teresa Palmer stars, along with Gabriel Bateman, Alexander Dipersia, Billy Burke and Maria Bello. There are a few creepy moments in this trailer, but the best scenes are being kept for the full movie. Which is a smart move. Don't watch in the dark. Here's the official trailer for David F. Sandberg's Lights Out, direct from WB's YouTube: You can still watch the first trailer for Lights Out here, »

24 June 2016 9:18 AM, PDT

"When you're shooting Stormtroopers in paradise, you have the best job in the world, you know? You can't really deny it at that point.” Entertainment Weekly has posted a first look gallery of photos from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, to compliment the teaser trailer for the upcoming Star Wars spin-off. There are some good new shots of a bunch of the characters, played by actors Felicity Jones, Forest Whitaker, Donnie Yen, Diego Luna, and Ben Mendelsohn.

There's also some great shots of Stormtroopers, including the new black commando troopers. Here's a few of the »

Review: Nicolas Winding Refn's Uncompromising, Hypnotic 'The Neon Demon'

24 June 2016 8:51 AM, PDT

Nicolas Winding Refn creates iconic characters, individuals who, despite the madness in which they're usually swept up, have a mythological aura that clings to them like a bur. His latest, The Neon Demon, follows suit. The protagonist is a young woman trying to break into the cutthroat world of modeling. Though Refn instills in her the same, memorable qualities he has used to grow many characters before, the harsh world and sadistic players he builds become more so. The Neon Demon is a wicked, bloody, fairy tale that could only be delivered by Refn. Uncompromising in tone, pace, and outcome, it may be his most divisive film yet. That doesn't stop The Neon Demon from being a brutally honest look at the fashion world and the shallowness that goes with it that slowly builds to a violent finale. In other words: it's pitch-perfect Refn. That young protagonist in the middle »

First Trailer for Ewan McGregor's Directorial Debut 'American Pastoral'

24 June 2016 8:26 AM, PDT

"Where is she?" Lionsgate has released the first trailer for the directional debut of actor Ewan McGregor, an adaption of the Philip Roth novel American Pastoral, about a family in the 1960s that falls apart when their daughter disappears after being accused of committing a violent act. This is actually the second film this year based on a Philip Roth story, the other being the excellent film Indignation which first premiered at Sundance. McGregor stars in this, with Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Connelly, Uzo Aduba, Molly Parker, Rupert Evans, Valorie Curry and David Strathairn. This looks like a very strong directorial debut from McGregor, and I'm quite curious to see it. I like the music and the way the story reveals itself. Here's the first full trailer for Ewan McGregor's American Pastoral, originally from Vanity Fair: Set in postwar America, a man watches his seemingly perfect life fall apart as »

First Full Trailer for Board Game Horror Prequel 'Ouija: Origin of Evil'

23 June 2016 7:32 PM, PDT

It was never just a game. Universal has unveiled a trailer for the upcoming horror prequel Ouija: Origin of Evil, the follow-up to the Ouija movie from 2014. Did anyone even want a sequel to the first one? The film has quite a cast: Henry Thomas, Elizabeth Reaser, Doug Jones, Parker Mack, Sam Anderson, Kate Siegel, Annalise Basso, and Lulu Wilson. The plot for this one involves a young daughter of a family being taken over by a malevolent spirit, and things get increasingly freaky from there. I can't help but say this looks fairly generic, with some bland scares and the usual horror tropes, nothing unique. Oh well. Here's the first official trailer for Mike Flanagan's Ouija: Origin of Evil, direct from YouTube: Inviting audiences again into the lore of the spirit board, Ouija: Origin of Evil tells a terrifying new tale as the follow-up to 2014’s sleeper hit. »

Watch: Jason Statham is Back in First 'Mechanic: Resurrection' Trailer

23 June 2016 7:07 PM, PDT

"I've been waiting too long to get even with you." Lionsgate has released the first full-length trailer for this summer's Mechanic: Resurrection, the sequel to The Mechanic from 2011, arriving in theaters in two months. This film stars Jason Statham in his 10,000th action film, as an assassin who makes his hits look like accidents. Aside from Statham, the cast includes Jessica Alba, Tommy Lee Jones, and Michelle Yeoh - impressive names for just another action movie. You thought he wouldn't return to this series, but he's back. The Mechanic is forced to travel the globe to complete three impossible assassinations, and do what he does best, make them all look like accidents. Well at least Tommy Lee Jones looks cool. Have a look. Here's the first official trailer for Dennis Gansel's Mechanic: Resurrection, direct from YouTube: Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham) returns as the Mechanic in the sequel to the 2011 action thriller. »

New Trailer for Dan Brown Adaptation 'Inferno' Starring Tom Hanks

23 June 2016 12:52 PM, PDT

"Human lives are at stake, I just want to know that I'm on the right side." Sony has unveiled another full trailer for the new Dan Brown adaptation Inferno, once again directed by Ron Howard, and once again starring Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon. We featured the first trailer a few months ago, but that one was just a teaser, and this sets up more of the story - a thriller taking place in historic cities like Florence and Istanbul. The cast includes Felicity Jones as Dr. Sienna Brooks, Langdon's beautiful sidekick this time, plus Ben Foster, Irrfan Khan, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ana Ularu, Ida Darvish. I kind of do want to see this, I just hope it's a bit better than the last Dan Brown movie. We'll find out later this year. Here's the latest official trailer for Ron Howard's Inferno adaptation, direct from Sony's YouTube: »

'A New Hero' Featurette for 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'

23 June 2016 11:38 AM, PDT

WB continues to introduce audiences to the cinematic world of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with featurettes focusing on new characters in the Harry Potter universe. Eddie Redmayne stars as Newt Scamander, a magizoologist who winds up letting loose a suitcase full of magical creatures in New York City in the 20s. It looks like they're still finishing the FX, so most of the footage involves characters interacting. There's some brand new shots we haven't seen before, and plenty of discussion from author J.K. Rowling, who was much more involved in the making of this than she was Harry Potter. The full cast includes Katherine Waterston, Alison Sudol, Dan Fogler, Colin Farrell and others. They're doing a good job building up interest in this, as I'm getting more and more curious with each new video they release. Here's the "A New Hero" featurette for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, »

See the Trailer for Extreme Kayaking Documentary 'Chasing Niagara'

23 June 2016 11:14 AM, PDT

"Is it worth it to possibly lose a friend?" Red Bull Media has unveiled a trailer for a documentary film called Chasing Niagara, profiling the life of "extreme kayaker" Rafa Ortiz and his dream of paddling over the Niagara Falls. The doc looks at the way he takes big risks to live a life on the edge, literally, kayaking over waterfalls and in places where no one has ever kayaked before. Of course Red Bull is releasing this film, it's right up their alley. The footage is impressive as it seems they've captured some of the best shots they could of Rafa and his crew, including footage from cameras mounted to his helmet. I'm a big fan and supporter of adventure junkies and risk takers, and this looks like another exhilarating, inspiring doc about them. Enjoy. Here's the official trailer for Rush Sturges' documentary Chasing Niagara, direct from YouTube: »

Watch: Trailer for Welsh Identical Twins Thriller 'The Library Suicides'

23 June 2016 10:21 AM, PDT

"If you leave enough behind, then death isn't the end." Soda Pictures has debuted an official UK trailer for The Library Suicides, a film from Wales made entirely in the Welsh language. It's adapted from Fflur Dafydd’s bestselling novel titled Y Llyfrgell, the original Welsh title, and it's about two identical twin sisters who investigate the suicide (or potential murder) of their mother, who was a librarian at the National Library of Wales. Actress Catrin Stewart (best known from "Doctor Who" and "Stella") plays dual roles as both daughters, and the cast also includes Dyfan Dwyfor, Ryland Teifi, Carwyn Glyn and Sharon Morgan. The way this trailer plays out, I would say it looks more fun than it does "thrilling". Take a look. Here's the official trailer for Euros Lyn's The Library Suicides, direct from YouTube: The Library Suicides (Y Llyfrgell), the debut feature from award-winning director Euros Lyn, »

First Trailer for Greg Mottola's Comedy 'Keeping Up with the Joneses'

22 June 2016 10:29 AM, PDT

"Who are these people?" 20th Century Fox has unveiled a trailer for Greg Mottola's latest comedy, titled Keeping Up with the Joneses, which is almost a bit like Mr. & Mrs. Smith about a couple next door that are actually super spies. On the other side are Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis, an ordinary suburban couple that are in for a wild ride when they figure this out. Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot play the "covert operative" couple - whoever cast them did a perfect job. The cast includes Patton Oswalt, Matt Walsh, Kevin Dunn and Maribeth Monroe. This looks like it should be harmless entertainment, right? Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer for Greg Mottola's Keeping Up with the Joneses, from Fox's YouTube: An ordinary suburban couple (played by Zach Galifianakis & Isla Fisher) finds it’s not easy keeping up with the Joneses (played by Jon Hamm & Gal Gadot »

Watch: Official UK Trailer for 'The Girl With All The Gifts' Adaptation

22 June 2016 10:11 AM, PDT

"She saved me, and you're still afraid of her?" Whoa! Where did this come from? Warner Bros in the UK has debuted a trailer for an adaptation of a book called The Girl With All The Gifts. The best way to describe this would be to call it a post-apocalyptic zombie movie meets the X-Men, with a young girl who has a special ability. She seems to be the best hope for the human race in a world overrun by the living dead. The movie stars Sennia Nanua, Gemma Arterton, Glenn Close and Paddy Considine. There are some fantastic shots in this trailer, and it sets up the story in a very thrilling way that makes me intrigued to find out more. I'd never heard of this before seeing the trailer, and now I'm more than interested. See below. Here's the first UK trailer for Colm McCarthy's The Girl With All The Gifts, »

Tom Cruise Returns in First Trailer for 'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back'

22 June 2016 9:38 AM, PDT

"We're on the run for this entire movie." Paramount has unveiled the first trailer for the sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, directed by Edward Zwick, bringing back Tom Cruise in the role of Jack Reacher, a character invented by author Lee Child. He's joined by actress Cobie Smulders, along with a cast including Robert Knepper, Aldis Hodge and Holt McCallany. I like the cold opening of this, with Reacher in the small diner talking back to some cops. From there it gets much more interesting, and for some reason I'm a bit more excited to see this sequel than I ever was the original. Maybe it's the way Zwick directs, as I almost always enjoy his films no matter what. Take a look below and let us know your thoughts. Here's the first official trailer for Edward Zwick's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, on YouTube (via Tfs): (Update! »

Luke Treadway as James Bowen in 'A Street Cat Named Bob' Trailer

21 June 2016 5:48 PM, PDT

Sometimes it takes nine lives to save one. Sony UK has debuted a trailer for a film called A Street Cat Named Bob, based on the bestselling book about a street musician whose life is changed by an adorable stray cat named Bob. Luke Treadway plays James Bowen, a young homeless busker and recovering drug addict living on the streets of London. The cast also features Bob the Cat (the real one!), Ruta Gedmintas, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head, and was filmed mostly on location around Covent Garden. This looks quite charming, better than expected from that title, and it features some impressive cinematography and heartwarming moments. It could've turned out so cheesy but it actually looks pretty dang good. Take a look. Here's the official UK trailer for Roger Spottiswoode's A Street Cat Named Bob, found on YouTube: Based on the international best selling book by James Bowen. The »

Must Watch: Full Theatrical Trailer for Nate Parker's 'Birth of a Nation'

21 June 2016 1:57 PM, PDT

"To watch a strong man broken down is a terrible thing." Fox Searchlight has debuted the full theatrical trailer for Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation, the award-winning film from Sundance this year about a slave uprising. The first trailer was powerful, but this one is even better. The cast includes Aunjanue Ellis, Armie Hammer, Jackie Earle Haley, Gabrielle Union, Mark Boone Junior, Penelope Ann Miller and Aja Naomi King. I raved about this film at Sundance, and I'm waiting for it to connect with audiences worldwide when it opens. The song they're using for these trailers is lovely, and it adds an extra amount of emotional power. It's one of the best films this year and I recommend catching this in theaters. Here's the full theatrical trailer for Nate Parker's The Birth of a Nation, from Fox Searchlight's YouTube: Set against the antebellum South, The Birth »

Watch: 5-Minute Extended Preview for Gary Ross' 'Free State of Jones'

21 June 2016 1:39 PM, PDT

"We'll make our for the treeline..." Stx Entertainment has revealed an extended 5-minute preview for Gary Ross' new Civil War drama Free State of Jones, starring Matthew McConaughey as a Southern farmer who organizes a rebellion against the Confederacy. The preview starts out with an extended scene from the beginning of the film (so it's not a spoiler to see what happens), taking place on a Civil War battlefield. At the end there is a bit of extra footage from the rest of the film, which opens in theaters this weekend. This is Stx's big final push to get people interested in seeing this, and it's very emotional. The whole point is setup the original part of the story that pushes McConaughey towards becoming a rebel, and it's an effective tease. Here's the 5-minute extended preview for Gary Ross' Free State of Jones, direct from YouTube: You can »

21 June 2016 1:14 PM, PDT

Big news today! Warner Bros has already started the marketing for Zack Snyder's Justice League, which is already filming in London to make its release in November of 2017. Photographer Clay Enos revealed a photo from the set of the new Batmobile (seen below in full) and a small handful of movie bloggers were invited to visit the set last week. In an unprecedented move, the studio has allowed the bloggers to reveal everything they saw and post many of the quotes from their on-set interviews. Nothing major has been uncovered except that they all seem convinced that Justice League might actually be pretty good, despite the mixed reaction to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice this March. Until we see more, check out the shot. Some of the best coverage from the set comes from SlashFilm. During one conversation with Zack Snyder, he revealed that he was taken aback »

"The score is a huge part of the movie." A24 has released a new featurette on the making of the score for the craziest corpse movie of the summer, Swiss Army Man, directed by "The Daniels" - Dan Kwan & Daniel Scheinert.
