Official Trailer for Yance Ford's Personal Documentary 'Strong Island'

15 hours ago

"The police had turned my brother into the prime suspect in his own murder." Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for Yance Ford's powerful, personal documentary Strong Island, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It won a Special Jury Prize for Storytelling there, and went on to play at numerous other festivals throughout the world. Strong Island is a unique documentary, where the story is not only being told by the filmmaker, but is about the filmmaker, who is expressing his anger and pent-up frustration about the murder of his brother. "A deeply intimate and meditative film, Strong Island asks what one can do when the grief of loss is entwined with historical injustice, and how one grapples with the complicity of silence, which can bind a family in an imitation of life, and a nation with a false sense of justice." If you're a fan of innovative, »

First Official Trailer for Snowy French Retro Horror Film 'Cold Ground'

19 hours ago

"The lucky ones freeze to death." A trailer has debuted for a snowy indie horror titled Cold Ground, a creature feature about a team of documentary filmmakers who venture into the mountains. Set in the 1970s, the found footage story follows journalists who head to the French-Swiss border to investigate a strange case of cattle mutilations, but the scientific team they were supposed to meet is nowhere to be found. This is described as a retro horror that is like "The Blair Witch Project meets The Descent", and it's filmed to look like it was made in the 70s with Super 8 cameras. Starring Doug Rand, Philip Schurer, Gala Besson, Fabrice Pierre, and Maura Tillay. This looks very scary, here's to hoping it's as good as the quotes claim. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Fabien Delage's Cold Ground, direct from YouTube: 1976: Two young journalists leave for the »

Adam Scott Battles an Evil Child in First Trailer for Netflix's 'Little Evil'

19 hours ago

"There is nothing wrong with Lucas!" Netflix has released the official trailer for an indie horror comedy titled Little Evil, the latest from Eli Craig, director of the other great horror comedy Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Remember that one? We covered it closely when it opened back in 2010. Little Evil stars Adam Scott as a man who marries the woman of his dreams, played by Evangeline Lilly. The only problem is that her child is the antichrist. Also starring Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, Tyler Labine, Donald Faison, Chris D'Elia, and Owen Atlas as Lucas. This looks good, don't think we've seen many comedies making fun of the evil child horror trope, but I'm up for this. Glad to see something new from Eli Craig, too. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eli Craig's Little Evil, direct from Netflix's YouTube: Meet Gary (Adam Scott). He just married »

Trailer for Michael Winterbottom's 'On The Road' Following Wolf Alice

21 hours ago

"That's life on the road for you." Lorton Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for a film titled On the Road, directed by Michael Winterbottom, not to be confused with the Jack Kerouac adaptation of On the Road from a few years back. This On the Road is a docu-drama that follows the British band Wolf Alice as they tour around the UK promoting their debut album, My Love Is Cool. Aside from documenting the ups and downs of life on the road, the story follows two people in particular: Estelle (played by Leah Harvey), an intern from the record label, and Joe (played by James McCardle), a member of the band's "imagined" crew. They start up an intimate friendship, and of course get caught up in the tumult of touring. The film is mostly unscripted, and seems to capture the raw beauty and randomness of life and love. Dive in. »

22 hours ago

"Remember what the pastor said: 'Blood is life.'" Cinema Slate has revealed an official Us trailer for an indie horror film from Brazil titled Kill Me Please (also just Mate-me por favor in Portuguese). The film is about a group of high school girls who waste their days wandering through the neighbor of Barra da Tijuca in Rio de Janeiro. When a series of murders begins to "terrorize the neighborhood" they develop a morbid curiosity with the victims, leading them to some dangerous places. Starring Valentina Herszage, Júlia Roliz, Mariana Oliveira, and Dora Freind as the four leading ladies. Kill Me Please is "partly inspired by the 1980s teen slasher genre" and is described as a "disturbing and funny dive into teenage sexuality, spirituality, loneliness and fragility." This actually looks damn good, I'm looking forward to checking it out. Here's the official trailer (+ posters) for Anita Rocha da Silveira's Kill Me Please, »

New Extended TV Trailer for 'Blade Runner 2049' Shows Us the Future

22 August 2017 3:21 AM, PDT

"Replicants are the future of the species." We're only a few months away, strap in. Sony (who is distributing this internationally) has released a new extended TV spot which is essentially just a new trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049. We've already seen plenty of footage in the previous three trailers, but why not a bit more to whet our appetite? This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original, and stars Ryan Gosling as a Lapd Officer who must find Deckard, who has been missing all this time. Harrison Ford returns to play Deckard, and the cast of 2049 includes Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, and David Dastmalchian. After this trailer, I really don't want to see anything else from this before watching it on the big screen. I'm ready. Here's the new international TV trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049, »

First International Trailer for Cult Sci-Fi 'How to Talk to Girls at Parties'

22 August 2017 3:05 AM, PDT

"Do more 'punk' to me." An international trailer for John Cameron Mitchell's cinematic adaptation of Neil Gaiman's How to Talk to Girls at Parties has arrived online. This weird, totally wacky cult sci-fi film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this summer to mixed reviews (I wasn't a big fan of it). How to Talk to Girls at Parties stars Alex Sharp (of Tony-winning "Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" Broadway fame) as Enn, a boy from the dreary London suburb of Croydon. Set in the late 70s, it's a punk rock-infused, horny-adventure about a group of punk kids who discover a secret convent of aliens visiting planet Earth. The cast includes Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Ruth Wilson, Matt Lucas, and Tom Brooke. It's really hard to describe this film, but thankfully this trailer helps set things up and I guess we need to just accept »

Official Trailer for 'McLaren' Doc About Racing Legend Bruce McLaren

21 August 2017 12:42 PM, PDT

"They were Kiwis taking on the world." FilmBuff has revealed the trailer for a racing documentary titled McLaren, telling the story of Bruce McLaren, the New Zealander who started the McLaren Motor Racing team. You may recognize the name, especially if you love cars, as Bruce McLaren is the father & founder of McLaren Automotive, which manufactures some of the fastest cars on the planet. McLaren died at age 32 in 1970 when his car crashed while racing in England. Despite this tragic early death, he left quite a legacy, and achieved a great amount of success. "A man who showed the world that a man of humble beginnings could take on the elite of motor racing and win." There have been some excellent racing movies recently (Senna and Rush come to mind) and this looks like it's another that will appeal to all audiences, not just racing fans. Here's the official trailer »

Watch: Metal Detector Finds Something Big in Animated Short 'Martin'

21 August 2017 11:57 AM, PDT

Always inspiring to watch an entertaining short film made by one person as a "labour of love." This short film premiered a few months ago, but we just came across it recently and felt it was worth sharing. Martin is a short animated film designed & directed by Sholto Crow of "Crowmotion". It tells the story of a young scavenger using a metal detector to hunt for objects on the beach in his small coastal town. One day he finds something big and, well, you just have to watch below to see what he discovers. I admire the animation style in this, it's quite unique, and the way this ends should make you laugh and leave you with a smile. Have fun. Thanks to Vimeo Staff Picks for the tip on this. Original short description from Vimeo: "A man unwittingly unleashes armageddon." The short film was designed, directed, and animated by »

New UK Trailer for George Clooney's 'Suburbicon' Starring Matt Damon

21 August 2017 8:47 AM, PDT

"Right now your path looks pretty bleak." Entertainment One in the UK has debuted an official UK trailer for Suburbicon, a new dark comedy written and directed by George Clooney. This film is premiering at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals in just a few weeks, so expect to hear lots of buzz. Set in 1959 in a "peaceful, idyllic suburban community" that is rattled by a home invasion, a death starts to reveal the town's "dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence". Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, Megan Ferguson, Jack Conley, and Oscar Isaac. This looks so damn good, I'm already sold and already ready to just watch and laugh and enjoy it. This is a good trailer but it spoils the amusing reveal at the end with Damon riding away, oh well, no worries. "Welcome to Suburbicon! A town of wonder and excitement." Here's the official UK »

Review: 'Hitman's Bodyguard' is an Entertaining Mess of Buddy Action

21 August 2017 8:27 AM, PDT

There is as much bad as there is good in The Hitman's Bodyguard, the latest in the recent slew of buddy action-comedies that have been barreling down the pike. Thank you for that, Shane Black. While that appreciation is genuine, there is a certain lull this particular sub-genre has quickly slid into, and there are definitely prerequisites an entry into this sub-genre appear to have to meet to satisfy some audiences. The Hitman's Bodyguard has no problem meeting all those prerequisites, but, while the buddies at play here (Samuel L. Jackson as the hitman and Ryan Reynolds as the bodyguard) seem to be having a blast with their back-and-forth verbal spars, the overall cheapness and familiarity of the film leaves plenty of room for improvement. At the very least, rest assured that Jackson drops a plethora of "motherfuckers". We're introduced first to Reynolds' Michael Bryce, a freelance agent who specializes »

If You Want It: Tyler Perry's 'Boo 2! A Madea Halloween' Official Trailer

21 August 2017 7:59 AM, PDT

"People got dead up there for real!" Oh boy, here we go again... Lionsgate has revealed the trailer for the newest Tyler Perry joint, another Madea comedy (sequel) titled Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. This is, obviously enough, a sequel to the goofy Halloween comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween release just last year. Tyler Perry not only returns to write and direct, but also star again as Madea (and Joe and Brian). The cast includes Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Chandra Currelley, Yousef Erakat, Diamond White, Lexy Panterra, and Andre Hall. The plot involves Madea, Bam & Hattie going to a haunted campground where they find monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman. As much as I have absolutely no interest in these movies, I have to give them props on the amusing poster design. Other than that, if you want to watch then go ahead. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Tyler Perry's Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, »

Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Literally, Right Before Aaron' with Justin Long

21 August 2017 7:24 AM, PDT

"He's actually a really cool guy." Screen Media Films has unveiled the first official trailer for an enjoyable indie comedy titled Literally, Right Before Aaron, telling the story of a heartbroken man invited to the wedding of his most recent ex-girlfriend. Justin Long stars in this fairly typical story about a guy dealing with a tough breakup and accepting the reality of letting go, while embracing the comedy in romance. The ensemble cast includes Cobie Smulders as his ex, as well as Ryan Hansen, John Cho, Kristen Schaal, Dana Delany, Peter Gallagher, Lea Thompson, and Luis Guzmán. This premiered at the Tribeca and Nantucket Film Festivals and seems like a painfully funny, awkwardly charming little comedy. Take a look. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Ryan Eggold's Literally, Right Before Aaron, from YouTube: Still reeling from his recent breakup, Adam (Justin Long) is devastated when he learns that his ex (Cobie Smulders) is engaged. »

Josh Hartnett in Official Trailer for '6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain'

21 August 2017 7:03 AM, PDT

"What do you want from me?!" Momentum Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for a survival movie called 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain, telling the faith-based story of a former hockey player and adrenaline junkie who gets stranded in the mountains. He must "battle his own personal demons" in order to survive. Josh Hartnett stars as as Eric LeMarque, who ends up lost while snowboarding in the High Sierras when a massive winter storm hits. Also starring Mira Sorvino, Sarah Dumont, Kale Culley, and Jason Cottle. Despite this being billed as "one of the most amazing tales of survival" it looks pretty much like every other tale of snowy survival. Right down to the wolves. And that song makes my eyes roll big time. Here's a trailer (+ poster) for Scott Waugh's 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain Trailer, on YouTube: When a snowstorm strands former professional hockey player Eric LeMarque »
