Watch: New Trailer for 4K Re-Release of Woody Allen's 'Manhattan'

just now

"He adored New York City... He romanticized it all out of proportion." Park Circus and MGM have unveiled a brand new trailer for the 4K digital re-release this year of Woody Allen's seminal romantic comedy classic Manhattan, which first opened in 1979. It didn't win any Oscars, but it did win Best Film at the BAFTAs. Woody Allen also stars in this, along with Diane Keaton, Michael Murphy, Mariel Hemingway, Meryl Streep, Anne Byrne, Karen Ludwig and Michael O'Donoghue. The 96-minute film has been carefully restored to 4K, and will be released in NYC first, which is fitting considering it's all about a love for NYC. Ebert wrote in a review from 2001 that "it's more subtle, more complex, and not about love, but loss." Here's the new re-release trailer for Woody Allen's Manhattan, direct from YouTube (via Indiewire): In Manhattan, Isaac Davis is a divorced writer of TV shows unhappy with his job. »

First Trailer for Hazing Drama 'Burning Sands' from Gerard McMurray

just now

"It's all about the brotherhood." Netflix has debuted the official trailer for a film titled Burning Sands, which initially premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January this year. Directed by newcomer Gerard McMurray, making his feature debut, the film is about a fraternity pledge named Zurich played by Trevor Jackson. Deep into Hell Week, he finds himself torn between honoring his code of silence or standing up against the intensifying violence of underground hazing. The cast includes Alfre Woodard, Steve Harris, Tosin Cole, DeRon Horton, along with Moonlight star Trevante Rhodes. I'm already totally opposed to hazing and fraternities, so these kind of films don't interest me much (especially just to watch so many people suffer). But this does look like it might be a good film, so perhaps it is worth watching. Have a look. Here's the first official trailer for Gerard McMurray's Burning Sands, direct from »

First Teaser Trailer for 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul' Sequel

15 hours ago

"A Wimp will rise." Fox has released an extended teaser trailer for the latest sequel in the comedy series Diary of a Wimpy Kid, this one subtitled The Long Haul, about a family road trip. This is the fourth movie in the cinematic franchise based on the popular series of books by Jeff Kinney. Young actor Jason Drucker plays Greg, who convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother's 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: to attend a nearby gamer convention. The cast includes Jason Ian Drucker, Charlie Wright, Owen Asztalos, Tom Everett Scott, and Alicia Silverstone. Yes, this looks as campy and as absurd as you might expect for the fourth movie in the Wimpy Kid series. Not for me. Here's the first teaser trailer for David Bowers' Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, from YouTube: In »

New Us Trailer for Lone Scherfig's 'Their Finest' with Gemma Arterton

16 hours ago

"People like films, because stories are structure. And when things turn bad, it's still part of a plan." Stx Entertainment has unveiled a new trailer for the film Their Finest, the latest feature from writer/director Lone Scherfig, of the films The Riot Club, One Day and An Education (one of my favorites). The film is a WWII-set comedy about an awkward British team that attempts to boost morale by making a propaganda film. Gemma Arterton stars as a writer, along with an impressive ensemble cast including Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy, Jack Huston, Paul Ritter, Rachael Stirling, Richard E. Grant, Henry Goodman, Jake Lacy, Jeremy Irons, Eddie Marsan and Helen McCrory. This has screened at numerous film festivals and looks immensely charming and uplifting, which may be exactly what we need right now. Enjoy.

Watch: Official Trailer for Acclaimed Documentary 'Cries From Syria'

20 hours ago

"War was never our choice. We were forced into war." HBO has debuted an official trailer for the powerful documentary titled Cries From Syria, described as a "searing, comprehensive account of the Syrian war from the inside out." This looks intense and depressing. Made by the same filmmaker behind the Academy Award nominated doc Winter on Fire: Ukraine's Fight for Freedom, director Evgeny Afineevsky takes us inside the Syrian war examining the horrors occurring in that Middle Eastern country. The doc is narrated by Helen Mirren, and also features the original song "Prayers for this World," written by Diane Warren, and recorded by Cher along with The West Los Angeles Children's Choir. This should be mandatory viewing. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Evgeny Afineevsky's doc Cries From Syria, from HBO's YouTube: Stranded between the opposing forces in the conflict, hundreds of thousands of Syrians have been killed, seven »

20 hours ago

Must Watch: Superb Opening Prologue Preview for 'Alien: Covenant'

22 February 2017 10:07 PM, PST

"It kinda spooks me out - it's a big old sea of nothing." Fox has revealed a fantastic 4-minute opening prologue preview for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant. This is such an awesome way to introduce everyone to these new characters in this movie. In the preview, the entire crew on the new mission gather for a final meal before entering cryosleep. There's some really great moments in this, it's kind of eerie how good this is, especially Waterston's speech at the end. The massive cast includes: Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, James Franco, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Uli Latukefu, Benjamin Rigby, and Amy Seimetz. Everyone needs to pause and watch this. "I couldn't pick a better bunch of jerks to get marooned on a distant planet with."

Berlinale 2017: 'Wilde Maus' Amusingly Profiles a Critic's Breakdown

22 February 2017 6:48 PM, PST

There's nothing like watching someone breakdown completely. Wilde Maus, which translates simply to Wild Mouse, is a dark comedy film from Austria which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival. Austrian actor Josef Hader makes his feature directorial debut with the film, also writing the screenplay and starring as the lead character, a music critic from Vienna who loses his job after 20 years. The film follows Hader as Georg, who goes bonkers and starts wandering around Vienna trying to make sense of his life after losing the job that kept him focused for so long. He ends up creating some unnecessary problems with his wife, and randomly partners with a guy who wants to run a little rollercoaster at Vienna's Prater amusement park. The title Wilde Maus is actually a specific reference to the rollercoaster - it's called the "Wilde Maus". This is clearly in reference to the idea that life »

Hand-Drawn Film 'My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea' Trailer

22 February 2017 12:58 PM, PST

"Help me and I'll invite you to my next party, I swear!" GKids has debuted the first official trailer for an animated film titled My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, which earned rave reviews out of the Toronto and New York Film Festivals last year. The hand-drawn film from acclaimed cartoonist Dash Shaw deals with exactly what the title says - an earthquake causes a high school to float into the sea, where it slowly sinks like a shipwreck. The impressive voice cast includes Jason Schwartzman, Reggie Watts, Lena Dunham, Maya Rudolph, Susan Sarandon, Alex Karpovsky, Louisa Krause, director John Cameron Mitchell, and Matthew Maher. Maybe it's just hearing Schwartzman in a school setting again, but this feels like a twisted mashup between Wes Anderson and Don Hertzfeldt, kind of like that. I'm so in. Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Dash Shaw's My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea, »

Samantha Isler in Full Trailer for Supernatural Thriller 'Dig Two Graves'

22 February 2017 11:51 AM, PST

"How far would you go to bring someone back?" Area 23a has debuted a trailer for an indie horror titled Dig Two Graves, from director Hunter Adams, which has been waiting for distribution for years. This film premiered at the New Orleans Film Festival way back in 2014, but is just now getting released in theaters March 2017. Dig Two Graves is a supernatural thriller about a young girl's obsession with her brother's death which leads her on a nightmarish journey where she is faced with a deadly proposition to bring him back. Samantha Isler stars as the lead, with Ted Levine, Danny Goldring, Troy Ruptash, Rachael Drummond, Dean Evans and Bradley Grant Smith. This looks fairly creepy, and probably forgettable. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Hunter Adams' Dig Two Graves, direct from YouTube: A supernatural thriller about the generational violence that plagues a small, backwoods town, set in the 1970s, »

Spoiler-Filled 'The Discovery' Trailer with Jason Segel & Rooney Mara

22 February 2017 10:58 AM, PST

"Don't you think your discovery was just too dangerous to share with the world?" Netflix has revealed a full trailer for Charlie McDowell's new sci-fi film The Discovery, to follow-up the first teaser launched just before Sundance. This outstanding little indie feature premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and it comes highly recommended for sci-fi fans. Jason Segel and Rooney Mara star, along with Robert Redford, Jesse Plemons & Riley Keough, in this film about a world where the afterlife is scientifically proven. The two connect and look back over their lives while almost everyone else is considering killing themselves to "get there". I wrote in my review from Sundance that this film is thought-provoking "cinema for intelligent minds." This trailer gives away almost All of the movie, which is pretty terrible, so be careful watching this. Here's the newest trailer (+ poster) for Charlie McDowell's The Discovery, direct from »

First Trailer for Dwayne Johnson's Prison Doc 'Rock and a Hard Place'

22 February 2017 10:28 AM, PST

"Don't squander this opportunity." HBO Documentaries has premiered a trailer for a new doc titled Rock and a Hard Place, featuring Dwayne Johnson (formerly known as "The Rock") sharing his experiences with a program he supports. Johnson tells about his own experiences with the law as a youth, and meets some of the kids currently enrolled in a one-of-a-kind boot camp program for incarcerated youth. This looks like a powerful, and hopefully inspiring, follow-up to Ava DuVernay's incredible documentary 13th - which touches on the troubles with the modern prison system. It looks like Johnson only comes in for a talk once, but maybe he is more prominent in the actual doc itself. I'm curious about seeing this. Check out the trailer. Here's the official trailer for Jon Alpert & Matthew O'Neill's doc Rock and a Hard Place, from YouTube: Inspired by Dwayne Johnson's own experiences with the law as a youth, »

First Trailer for Syfy Original Movie 'Atomica' Set Inside a Nuclear Plant

22 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST

"Is there something you're not telling me?" "It's under control." Syfy has released a trailer for their original movie titled Atomica, that is supposedly being released into theaters and not just on TV. Atomica is set inside a nuclear power planet in the "near future", when communications go offline and mysteriously weird things start to happen inside. The cast includes Sarah Habel starring, with Tom Sizemore, Dominic Monaghan, Phil Austin, Hahn Cho and Jennifer Spriggs. I like the futuristic sci-fi look and feel of this film, but I am worried it'll probably turn out to be a big mess. The footage is interesting until it becomes confusing and it's hard to make sense of what's going on inside this weird place. Still, it's worth a quick look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Dagen Merrill's Atomica, direct from Syfy's YouTube: In the near future, when communications go offline »

New Us Trailer for Danièle Thompson's 'Cézanne Et Moi' About Artists

21 February 2017 5:42 PM, PST

"I'd like to paint as you write." Magnolia Pictures has debuted an official Us trailer for Danièle Thompson's biopic drama Cézanne Et Moi, also known as Cézanne and I, about a friendship between two artists. The film tells of the parallel paths between the lives and careers of post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Émile Zola, starting as school pals in Aix-en-Provence to working artists in Paris. Guillaume Gallienne plays Cézanne, and Guillaume Canet plays Zola, with a cast including Alice Pol, Déborah François, Isabelle Candelier, Sabine Azéma, Freya Mavor and Félicien Juttner. This didn't play at any film festivals, but it did already open in European cinemas last year. The film is described as a "polished period piece" that "boldly paints a picture of two 19th century masters." This looks quite good. Take a look. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Danièle Thompson's Cézanne Et Moi, »

Trailer for Medical Drama 'Brain On Fire' Starring Chloë Grace Moretz

21 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST

"To put it simply - her brain is on fire." An odd trailer has debuted for the film Brain on Fire, a medical mystery psychological drama from Irish director Gerard Barrett. The film stars Chloë Grace Moretz as a young woman who starts going mad after she begins to experience really terrible seizures, and her life falls apart as a result. Based on the true story of Susannah Cahalan. The full cast includes Richard Armitage, Carrie-Anne Moss, Tyler Perry, Thomas Mann, Vincent Gale, Nicole Laplaca, Navid Negahban, Agam Darshi, with an appearance by Jenny Slate. This is a weird trailer that throws a curveball part of the way through, then gets laughably cheesy at the end. The footage is okay, but the title cards are the worst. Here's the first official trailer for Gerard Barrett's Brain On Fire, direct from YouTube: Susannah Cahalan (Chloë Grace Moretz), a journalist at the New York Post, »

Berlinale 2017: Exploring Berlin's Many Movie Palaces Around the City

20 February 2017 4:20 PM, PST

I love movie theaters. Every time I walk into one, I get the feeling I'm at home again. They are my places of worship, they are my cathedrals, they are my palaces. Every last city in the world has their own unique set of movie theaters, usually with an extensive and interesting history behind each one. Over the last 10 days of the 2017 Berlin Film Festival (aka "Berlinale") I was able to explore a number of different venues for screenings all over the city. I really love Berlin, and it's now my home where I live, but I'm still exploring and still going to places I've never been before. Looking back over this year's festival, I wanted to highlight a few of the gorgeous movie palaces I visited and share some photos of these places, since they're all so lovely. There's nothing like watching a movie in these cinemas. But until »

Watch: 'Tears In The Rain' Sci-Fi Short Film Inspired by 'Blade Runner'

20 February 2017 1:01 PM, PST

"I would know if I was a replicant!" We're always on the lookout for good sci-fi short films. Tears In The Rain is an intriguing little short from South Africa that is clearly directly inspired by Blade Runner, set in the world of Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?. This short was made on a budget of only $1500 which is crazy impressive, and it looks great. I wish there was more taking place outside on the streets, but it's still cool to see a well-made short film set in this world, and I can always appreciate some fascinating dialogue. This gets deep into the themes from the original novel about free will and whether or not our memories are real, and if we would know that we're a robot, or are just designed to think we're real. Original synopsis for the short: "In a dystopian Los Angeles future, »

New Official Trailer for Guy Ritchie's 'King Arthur' with Charlie Hunnam

20 February 2017 12:24 PM, PST

"Why does the sword reveal itself now?" Warner Bros has unveiled another new trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, the new take on the legendary King Arthur story. As we know from the previous trailer, Ritchie's style stands out in particular, making this look a bit more unique than other versions of this story. Charlie Hunnam stars as the new King Arthur with a cast including Jude Law, Annabelle Wallis, Katie McGrath, Eric Bana, Djimon Hounsou, Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, Tom Wu, as well as Aidan Gillen. I really, really like this new trailer. The music is perfect, the way it's edited is exciting, I am totally sold. I don't know if it will be good, but this trailer definitely gets me hyped to see this. Here's the second official trailer for Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, from YouTube: You can still watch »
