First Teaser Trailer for Pixar's Long-Awaited Sequel 'The Incredibles 2'

18 November 2017 8:45 AM, PST

"You have powers!" Disney has released the very first teaser trailer for Pixar's The Incredibles 2, or now titled simply Incredibles 2 (drop the "the"). This teaser isn't that much, but it is officially something, since we've all been (im)patiently waiting 13 years for them to make this sequel. Brad Bird directs once again, and the plot synopsis released by Disney only states that it's about Bob navigating "the day-to-day heroics of 'normal' life", allowing him time to bond with Jack-Jack, "whose superpowers are emerging—much to Dad's surprise." Which is pretty much what this trailer shows. Craig T. Nelson is back as the voice of Bob, with Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, and Sarah Vowell. I'm excited to see some actual footage and find out what this sequel is going to really be about, because I'm intrigued after waiting all these years already. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Brad Bird's Incredibles 2, »

More Monster Humor: 'Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation' Trailer

18 November 2017 8:35 AM, PST

"If anyone needs a vacation... it's Drac!" Sony has unveiled the first trailer for the animated sequel Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, again directed by the animation mastermind Genndy Tartakovsky. By now you should know what to expect with this series, considering we're about to see the third one next year. Hotel Transylvania 3 brings back the "Drac Pack" and his family/squad, this time going on a summer vacation cruise. Apparently he falls for the "intriguing-yet-dangerous" captain of the ship, causing problems of course. This once again featuring the voices of Adam Sandler, Selena Gomez, Andy Samberg, and Genndy Tartakovsky. I'm a fan of Tartakovsky so I want to be into these, but I don't think I've watched any, and I don't know if I want to watch them. Something just tells me no, not for me. But - enjoy it anyway. First two trailers for Genndy Tartakovsky's Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, »

First Trailer for Goofy Break-In Comedy Film 'A Bad Idea Gone Wrong'

16 November 2017 4:51 PM, PST

"Who are these people trying to protect themselves from?" Freestyle Digital Media has debuted the first trailer for the indie comedy A Bad Idea Gone Wrong, a goofy film about two wanna-be thieves who trap themselves in a house they just broke into. Yeah, it's pretty much one of those why-not, let's-try-it concepts that kind of works, but also kind of doesn't. This played at a few festivals this year to quite a bit of acclaim, like winning the Best Feature prize at the dead Center Film Festival. The cast of A Bad Idea Gone Wrong includes Matt Jones, Will Rogers, Eleanore Pienta, Sam Eidson, and Jonny Mars. This looks a bit odd, there's something weird about the trailer that doesn't feel quite right to me. But I do think this seems like the film would be worth seeing at a festival. There's something quirky about it that's appealing enough. »

First Trailer for Live-Action 'Rampage' Movie Starring Dwayne Johnson

16 November 2017 4:10 PM, PST

"Oh, what, you didn't know about the 30 foot wolf?" Warner Bros has launched the first official trailer for Rampage, the live-action version of the classic 1980s video game about apes and monsters destroying city buildings. Yeah, they actually went and made this. Can you believe it?! Rampage the movie, get out of town! From the director of San Andreas and Incarnate, Rampage follows a primatologist named Davis Okoye, played by Dwayne Johnson, who shares a bond with the big white ape George. Suddenly something weird causes him to start growing in size fast. The full cast includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Naomie Harris, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hill, Jack Quaid, Joey Thurmond, and P.J. Byrne. You shouldn't be surprised to hear that this looks fun, but it also looks like CGI mania. Yes, there is building smashing. I prefer this Dwayne Johnson over the one in Jumanji any day. »

Horror Spin-Off - First Teaser Trailer for 'The Strangers: Prey at Night'

16 November 2017 11:45 AM, PST

"Leave us alone!" "But we've just started..." Aviron Pictures has launched the first teaser trailer for a new horror spin-off titled The Strangers: Prey at Night. Instead of actually making a sequel to cult horror hit The Strangers (directed by Bryan Bertino in 2008), they went off and decided to make an "inspired by" film. This one follows a family staying in a secluded mobile home park for a night, who are visited by three masked psychopaths. So the same masked weirdos are back, but a different time/place. The cast includes Christina Hendricks, Martin Henderson, Bailee Madison, & Lewis Pullman. This really does look creepy with a few very scary moments, just not sure if it will bring anything new to the horror/slasher table. Here's the first teaser trailer for Johannes Roberts' The Strangers: Prey at Night, from YouTube: A family's road trip takes a dangerous turn when they »

Colin Firth Learns How to Sail in First UK Trailer for Drama 'The Mercy'

16 November 2017 11:27 AM, PST

"Leave your doubts with us here on the shore. Take your dreams out to sea." StudioCanal UK has debuted an official UK trailer for an indie drama titled The Mercy, which tells the story of a humble man who takes an unfinished boat on a race around the world in an adventure on his own. This tells the triumphant, inspiring, incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst, an amateur sailor who decided to take on the task of competing in the 1968 Golden Globe Race - sailing around the world solo. Colin Firth stars as Crowhurts, and the cast includes Rachel Weisz as his wife Clare Crowhurst, along with David Thewlis, Jonathan Bailey, Tim Downie, Andrew Buchan, Genevieve Gaunt, Adrian Schiller. It looks like everything you'd expect for one of these biopics, and it will surely be entertaining to watch. Firth is always remarkable. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for James Marsh's The Mercy, »

Teaser Trailer for John Krasinski's 'A Quiet Place' Starring Emily Blunt

16 November 2017 7:26 AM, PST

"If they can't hear you, they can't hunt you." Paramount has unveiled the first mysterious teaser trailer for a horror thriller titled A Quiet Place, directed by and starring actor John Krasinski. Holy smokes this looks good, original, and thrilling. The film is about a family living quietly on a farm, keeping to themselves. Monsters (I think?) have taken over the world but they only hunt by sound, so if you stay quiet they can't find you. The teaser sets up the story quite well. Emily Blunt stars, along with Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds (who you may recognize as the fantastic deaf actress from Wonderstruck). Okay, so I am way into this. Helluva tease. The big scratches on the wall have me intrigued - what are dealing with here? How big? Is anyone else reminded of Pitch Black? I like all the sign language already. Can't wait to find out more. »

Review: Snyder's 'Justice League' Has Few Bright Spots, Mostly Dim

15 November 2017 4:17 PM, PST

Director Zack Snyder's Superman reboot, Man of Steel, received mostly positive reviews when it released in 2013, but ultimately underperformed at the box office. The second entry in the DC Extended Universe (Dceu), Snyder's sequel Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, encountered an overwhelmingly negative response from critics and lukewarm audience sentiment, despite making $873 million. Similarly, the third film in the franchise, David Ayer's Suicide Squad, wound up with terrible reviews but still surpassed expectations. Everything changed this year, when Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman received widespread critical acclaim and overwhelming audience support, becoming one of the best-reviewed superhero movies of all time and the highest-grossing superhero origin movie in history. Now, Justice League hopes to ride Wonder Woman's coattails and deliver a fun, hopeful film that lives up to the legacy of the iconic superhero team that first assembled in DC Comics' 1960's The Brave and »

First Trailer for 'Bullet Head' Starring Adrien Brody & John Malkovich

15 November 2017 3:50 PM, PST

"It's all there. - the motherload." Saban Films has debuted the first official trailer for a funky crime thriller titled Bullet Head, from writer/director Paul Solet. The film is about three career criminals who end up trapped inside a warehouse together, after finding money inside. A deranged dog keeps them stuck in the building. Starring Adrien Brody and John Malkovich, along with Antonio Banderas, Ori Pfeffer, Alexandra Dinu, Velizar Binev, Owen Davis, and Cristina Segovia. This seems like it could be a cool film, but I'm not too sure this one pulled that off, though I am curious at least. You may want to take a look. Here's the first official trailer for Paul Solet's Bullet Head, direct from YouTube: A highly-stylized crime story reminiscent of Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. As three career criminals find themselves trapped in a warehouse with the law closing in and an even worse threat waiting inside, »

Us Trailer for Crazy Russian Dash Cam Documentary 'The Road Movie'

15 November 2017 8:24 AM, PST

"World-class stupidity..." Oscilloscope Labs has unveiled a new official trailer for the brutal, the crazy, the wild, the epic documentary known as The Road Movie (or also Дорога in Russian), compiled entirely of dash cam footage from Russia. This doc played at Idfa, True/False, Sheffield, Zurich, Denver, and other film festivals and will be hitting theaters in January. One of the descriptions makes this seem a little over the top: "Super objective dashboard-cam videos grow into a strong image of the Russian national character, permanently awaiting for a miracle and the habitual approach to real dramas. Everything can happen on the road of... life." Apparently so. This seems like it should play well to Us right audiences now. This trailer is packed with some very bold, vicious quotes that don't really make me any more interested in this. Have fun. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Dmitrii Kalashnikov's The Road Movie, »

Wacky New 'Wet on Wet' Teaser Trailer for Ryan Reynolds' 'Deadpool 2'

15 November 2017 8:11 AM, PST

"I'm glad you could join me today." 20th Century Fox has debuted a hilarious new teaser trailer for the Deadpool sequel, currently known as just Deadpool 2, once again starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth. They're marketing for this sequel is as good as the first so far, and as things ramp up it only seems to be getting even better. This latest brilliant teaser is an example of that, an amusing mockery of Bob Ross that still delivers. Somewhere around the 1:40 mark, actual footage kicks in from the movie. The film's full cast includes Morena Baccarin, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller, Eddie Marsan, Zazie Beetz, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Julian Dennison, and Stefan Kapicic. So this looks a bit darker and more thrilling than the first Deadpool, I'm fine with that. I'm sure there'll still be plenty of jokes. Here's the new "Wet on »

Time to Watch Documentaries - My First Visit to Idfa in Amsterdam

15 November 2017 4:36 AM, PST

What's up next on the film festival tour? My next stop is at Idfa in Amsterdam in the Netherlands, in full known as International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam. This is another film festival I've heard about for years, and I'm finally attending it for the first time. Idfa is known around the world as one of the premiere film festivals for documentaries. They only show and host documentaries at the festival (with a few exceptions) but that means it's all about truth and non-fiction and cinema as an important tool for telling stories from the real world. I'm very excited to be here, I love Amsterdam, and I'm happy to start watching more documentaries. I wasn't always a big fan of docs before, to be honest, but I am a big fan now. We are living in the Golden Age of Documentaries, I am pretty damn sure of it. There »

Watch: Super Entertaining Cyber Punk Animated Short Film 'X-Story'

14 November 2017 10:12 AM, PST

If you love action adventure or anything cyber punk, you have to stop for a moment and watch this awesome short film. X-Story is an animated short made by Russian animator Vitaliy Shushko that is a cyberpunk adventure about a guy who gets a "bionic power arm" and goes to find hidden treasure. It seems like kind of an homage to video games, almost Mega Man meets Mario, but there's also a bit of The Incredibles in here with the big villain. Whatever it is, the animation is gorgeous and feels vintage yet fresh. I really enjoyed watching Shushko's X-Story, and I think you will also find it to be very impressive animated entertainment. Thanks to Quiet Earth for the tip on this short. Original description from Vimeo: "A guy equipped with the latest model of bionic power arm gets a map and a mysterious ball from a clandestine dealer, »

Trailer for Camping Horror 'Desolation' Made by Director Sam Patton

14 November 2017 6:00 AM, PST

"Dad said you should never go off trail." IFC Midnight has unveiled an official trailer for a horror thriller titled Desolation, the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Sam Patton. This first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival, but hasn't played at too many other festivals. In Desolation, a young mother, her best friend and son venture into the wilderness for a camping trip only to find themselves the hunted prey in a deranged killer’s terrifying game. The cast includes Jaimi Paige, Alyshia Ochse, Claude Duhamel, and Toby Nichols. This looks like an interesting horror thriller, but I'm pretty sure I've already figured out the twist. Though I guess I don't really know. The sunglasses dude doesn't seem that creepy, but that's just me. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Sam Patton's Desolation, direct from IFC's YouTube: A young mother (Jaimi Paige) takes her son and her »

Official Trailer for 'Big Time' Doc About Danish Architect Bjarke Ingels

13 November 2017 2:39 PM, PST

"To see abstract ideas become concrete reality is all it's about." Mongrel Media has released the first official trailer for a documentary called Big Time, telling the story or Danish architect Bjarke Ingels. You may not know his name, but he is well-known in the architecture world as a rising star. Ingels' company Bjarke Ingels Group (Big) was given the task of designing and building one of the skyscrapers which will replace Two World Trade Center in Manhattan. He has been named "one of architecture's biggest innovators" but that doesn't mean he takes his work lightly. The documentary lets us "into Bjarke’s creative processes as well as the endless compromises that his work entails, and we are on the side when his personal life starts putting pressure on him, too." An intriguing and intimate doc about an architecture virtuoso. Take a look. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Kaspar Astrup Schröder »

Interview: Swiss Filmmaker Petra Volpe on Making 'The Divine Order'

13 November 2017 11:32 AM, PST

"Sometimes you need luck as a director. We always think it's all about control and it is a lot about control when you direct a movie, but it's also about things that you can't foresee." There's a film now playing in theaters titled The Divine Order, from Swiss writer/director Petra Volpe. The film is Switzerland's entry in the Oscars this year and it's obvious why when you see it. This very entertaining, exciting, engaging film tells the story of a woman in a mountain town in Switzerland who rallies other women to join in the fight for the right to vote. Swiss women only passed a law in 1971. I had a chance to talk with writer & director Petra Volpe and I'm so happy I did - she's a joy to talk with and had much to say about making empowering films. I highly recommend seeking out The Divine Order »

New Trailer for Rupert Jones' Thriller 'Kaleidoscope' with Toby Jones

13 November 2017 9:10 AM, PST

"You left clues everywhere..." IFC has debuted the first official trailer for an intriguing psychological thriller titled Kaleidoscope, from writer/director Rupert Jones. The film stars Toby Jones as middle-aged man just released from prison. The film is apparently about his relationship to his mother, and asks the question: "is it possible to escape our past?" The cast includes Anne Reid, Sinead Matthews, Manjinder Virk, Karl Johnson, Deborah Findlay, and Frederick Schmidt. This looks like a creepy, mysterious head-trip kind of film, but actually quite good with seemingly lots of twists. Per the description: "At the heart of this modern day Psycho are some unsettling questions: Can we ever escape the role in which we are cast by our early circumstances? Must a perpetrator first be a victim?" This trailer is definitely worth checking out. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Rupert Jones' Kaleidoscope, direct from YouTube: This intense, »

Hugh Jackman in Magnificent Full Trailer for 'The Greatest Showman'

13 November 2017 8:42 AM, PST

"Does it bother you that everything you're selling is fake?" 20th Century Fox has released the new full-length trailer for The Greatest Showman, the exciting new musical telling the story of showman P.T. Barnum, the original creator of the vaudeville show known as the circus. Hugh Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum, in this rather extravagant but mesmerizing musical, with original songs from the Oscar-winning lyricists of La La Land, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul (this is a big marketing point). The huge ensemble cast also includes Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Paul Sparks, and Zendaya. Okay I have to honestly say, this looks magnificent, I really can't wait to see this. Maybe there's a chance it could be another outstanding year-end movie sliding in the last few days of 2017. No really, it looks great. Have fun. Here's the full theatrical trailer for Michael Gracey's The Greatest Showman, direct from »
