He Just Wants to Have a Cookout - Trailer for Andre Hyland's 'The 4th'

2 hours ago

"Aw, sorry about your bike!" Gravitas Ventures has unveiled an official trailer for an indie comedy titled The 4th, which actually premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year (not this year). The 4th is the feature directorial debut of a comedian/actor named Andre Hyland, who takes us on a wacky trip through Los Angeles. Hyland also stars as the main character, Jamie. The story is simple - a scruffy dude in La tries to throw a cookout for his friends during 4th of July. But on his way to the store, he gets into an accident and everything goes nuts, throwing his whole life into disarray. Co-starring Anna Lee Lawson, Yasmine Kittles, Dugan O'Neal, and Jeff Carpenter. This doesn't look that good, but maybe it's just the trailer. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Andre Hyland's The 4th, direct from Gravitas' YouTube: It's the 4th of July in Los Angeles when Jamie (Andre Hyland), a down-on-his-luck illustrator who's behind on »

Looking Back: 'Spider-Man 2' is Still One of the Best Comic Book Movies

3 hours ago

When it comes to sequels, there an expectation to raise the bar. If you think of some of the best sequels of all time, whether that's The Empire Strikes Back, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan or Aliens (to name a few), each film improved upon the foundation of the first in major ways. In the second part of our weekly Spider-Man retrospective series leading up to the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7th this summer, we take a look at how Sam Raimi raised the bar for not only Spider-Man movies, but the entire superhero genre itself with Spider-Man 2. The superhero sequel hit theaters on June 30th, 2004 (that's 13 years ago!), just a week before 4th of July, and it once again went on to set records at the box office and beyond. After Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie swung into theaters on May 2nd, 2002 and made movie history, expectations were astronomically high for the »

Teaser Trailer for 'The Incredible Jessica James' with Jessica Williams

3 hours ago

Have You Met the Incredible Jessica James? Netflix has debuted the first teaser trailer for The Incredible Jessica James, the latest film from talented indie filmmaker Jim Strouse (of Grace Is Gone, The Winning Season, People Places Things - all three are great films). This upbeat indie comedy stars Jessica Williams from "The Daily Show" in a major breakout role as Jessica James, an aspiring playwright living in New York City struggling with the dating scene and the career scene. She meets a goofball guy that she slowly starts to fall for, played by Chris O'Dowd (not seen in this teaser). Also starring Lakeith Stanfield, Noël Wells, Megan Ketch, and Zabryna Guevara. I saw this at Sundance and it's wonderful, providing some much-needed optimism along with an outstanding performance from Williams. Don't miss this one, it's so good. Here's the first teaser trailer for Jim Strouse's The Incredible Jessica James, direct from YouTube: Jessica Williams ("The Daily Show") stars as a young, »

Review: Sofia Coppola's 'The Beguiled' is a Powerhouse Adaptation

4 hours ago

In less than 20 years, and with five feature films under her belt, filmmaker Sofia Coppola has amassed a rather small but powerful slate of motion pictures. Small though it is, her filmography is a charged batch of feminist expression that tells the world she isn't ready to unleash her next expression until she is good and ready. So it is that we come to her sixth feature, The Beguiled, a remake of the 1971, Don Siegel-directed, Clint Eastwood-starring thriller about the dangers of misogyny in the days of the American Civil War. As with her previous works, it's an immaculately crafted and powerful drama of human interaction and survival in this male-dominated world, and, once again just like her previous efforts, The Beguiled is a phenomenal film, an early candidate as one of the best films the year will offer. Based on the 1966 novel written by Thomas P. Cullinan, the film tells the story of John McBurney (Colin Farrell), »

Amusing Second Trailer for Tennis Showdown Film 'Battle of the Sexes'

5 hours ago

"There's not a single thing I don't hate about Bobby Riggs." Fox Searchlight UK has revealed a new trailer for the indie sports comedy Battle of the Sexes, from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks. Set in the 1970s, the comedy profiles the true story of a wacky tennis match between Emma Stone as tennis champ Billie Jean King, and Steve Carell as chauvinist Bobby Riggs. The match earned attention as a true "battle of the sexes", but there seems to be more going on than just tennis. The full cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Natalie Morales, Alan Cumming, Eric Christian Olsen, Sarah Silverman, and Martha MacIsaac. This seems very funny and fun to watch, looking forward to it. Here's the second official trailer for Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris's Battle of the Sexes, on YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer for Battle of the Sexes here, to see even more footage from this.

Teaser Trailer for Icelandic Horror Film 'Rift' Set at a Secluded Cabin

5 hours ago

"Someone is here with me." A short teaser trailer has debuted for an Icelandic Lgbt horror film titled Rift, made by horror filmmaker Erlingur Thoroddsen. The story is about a guy named Gunnar who receives a mysterious call from his ex-boyfriend, who is living in a secluded cabin. He goes out there to find out what's going on, only to discover there's some weird things happening and something haunting them outside the cabin that wants to get in. Starring Björn Stefánsson, Sigurður Þór Óskarsson, and Guðmundur Ólafsson. The film already premiered at the Göteborg Film Festival earlier this year, and is playing at a few other festivals this summer as well, including OutFest in July. This actually looks pretty good, I'm curious. Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Erlingur Thoroddsen's Rift, from YouTube (via Dread Central): Months after they broke up, Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar. He sounds distraught, like he's about to do something »

Haley Lu Richardson in First Trailer for Outstanding Film 'Columbus'

22 hours ago

"Suddenly the place I'd lived my whole life felt different." A trailer has finally arrived for one of the best films from the Sundance Film Festival this year. Columbus is the feature directorial debut of a filmmaker known as "Kogonada", a Korean cinephile who previously made video essays that achieved quite a bit of acclaim online. Columbus stars Haley Lu Richardson as a young woman from the town of Columbus, Indiana, a small place known for its remarkable and innovative architecture (and it's all actually real). Her story intertwines with a Korean man played by John Cho who visits because his father, an architect, is in a coma. The cast also includes Parker Posey, Erin Allegretti, Rory Culkin, and Jim Dougherty. We published a glowing review of this from Sundance, and it's definitely worth your time to discover. See below. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Kogonada's Columbus, originally from EW.com: A Korean-born man (John Cho) finds himself stuck in »

23 hours ago

"Terrible things happen every day in this city." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for an ensemble indie drama titled Person to Person, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film follows different characters "from person to person" in New York City, handing off the narrative to each one as it continues on. The full cast of quirky characters includes Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Tavi Gevinson, Isiah Whitlock, Michaela Watkins, Olivia Lucciardi, Ben Rosenfield, Buddy Durress, Bene Coopersmith, George Sample III, and Philip Baker Hall. This looks like a nice slice of life in New York City, showing the mix of people and all the interesting things going on. Enjoy. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Dustin Guy Defa's Person to Person, direct from YouTube: During a single day in New York City, a variety of characters grapple with the mundane, the unexpected, and the larger questions permeating their lives.

First Trailer for David Gordon Green's Boston Bombing Film 'Stronger'

22 June 2017 10:44 AM, PDT

"You showed the world that they can't break us no matter what the hell they do." Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, about a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 who helped the police track down the killers. This is the second Boston Marathon bombing movie, the fist one Patriots Day opened last winter, while Lionsgate is waiting until this fall to release this one. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bombing. The cast includes Tatiana Maslany as his wife Erin Hurley, plus Clancy Brown, Miranda Richardson, and Frankie Shaw. This actually looks a bit better than Patriots Day, mostly because it's more personal and emotional, and I trust in Dgg. Here's the first official trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, direct from Lionsgate's YouTube: A victim of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 helps the police track down the killers while struggling to recover from devastating trauma.

Uncut 35mm Print of Argento's 'Suspiria' Found - Touring This Year

22 June 2017 10:06 AM, PDT

"Do you know anything about witches?" This is great news for fans of classic horror. There's a brand new remake of Dario Argento's 1977 stylish horror film Suspiria due to arrive later this year, from director Luca Guadagnino (of A Bigger Splash, Call Me by Your Name). But before that arrives, lucky cinephiles will have the chance to revisit the original film as a pristine 35mm print of an uncut version of the film was found by the Chicago Cinema Society. "The print was rescued from an Italian cinema that had closed down and the print had gone untouched in their storage area since 1977/78." Even more exciting, the print will be touring around the country as a restored version show in select cinemas through this year. Full list of cities below. Suspiria was first released in Italy in early 1977. It opened in Us cinemas later that year, but was released as a 92-minute version cut down from the original »

Chadwick Boseman as Thurgood Marshall in First Trailer for 'Marshall'

22 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT

"If you want freedom, you're going to have to fight for it." Open Road Films has released the first official trailer for a film titled Marshall, telling the fascinating and inspiring story of the first African American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Chadwick Boseman, who also plays Black Panther, stars as Thurgood Marshall in this compelling drama about Marshall when he was a "young rabble-rousing" attorney for the NAACP during the 1940s and 1950s. The full cast in the film includes Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell. This looks like a rousing, inspiring story of a determined, intelligent man fighting against racism and society to stand for justice above all. Might be good. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Reginald Hudlin's Marshall, direct from YouTube: Long before he sat on the United States Supreme Court or claimed victory in Brown v. Board of Education, Thurgood Marshall (Chadwick Boseman) was a young rabble-rousing attorney for »

Official Trailer for Cliché Action Movie 'Cartels' Starring Steven Seagal

21 June 2017 5:07 PM, PDT

"Who the hell are you?" "I'm the guy you shoulda called when you went sideways." Lionsgate has dropped a trailer for yet another new Steven Seagal action movie, and it looks as terrible as his last one. The trailer is for a film called Cartels, formerly known as Killing Salazar. It's made by the same director who has made all of Seagal's recent movies, including Contract to Kill, which we featured a trailer for last year (did anyone actually watch it?). Cartels has some super cheesy, twisty plot involving a drug lord being captured, the DEA, and Seagal being Seagal. Also starring Georges St. Pierre, Martine Argent, Darren E. Scott, Massimo Dobrovic, and Luke Goss. I honestly don't even know why I bother with trailers for films like this, I'm never going to watch it, and I hope no one else will want to either. Move along, nothing to see here. Here's the newest official trailer (+ poster) for Keoni Waxman's »

New Featurette for 'Blade Runner 2049' Takes Us Behind-the-Scenes

21 June 2017 2:25 PM, PDT

"The story. The themes. The stunning visual environments. It was a pleasure getting back to the world of Blade Runner again." Warner Bros has unveiled a behind-the-scenes featurette for Blade Runner 2049, the sci-fi sequel directed by Denis Villeneuve. This is easily one of our most anticipated, and the more they show us, the better it looks. Holy crap. This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original story, and stars Ryan Gosling as the new Lapd Officer who must find Deckard, who has been missing all this time. Harrison Ford returns to play Deckard, and the new cast of 2049 also includes Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, and David Dastmalchian. All the footage in this looks stunning, and I love that everyone in this video talks about how daunting and impressive every aspect of it is. I'm so happy this movie looks this amazing. Cannot wait.

New Us Trailer for 'From the Land of the Moon' with Marion Cotillard

21 June 2017 2:07 PM, PDT

"I am planted within you. I am alone with you." IFC Films has debuted an official Us trailer for the French drama From the Land of the Moon, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year (not this year). This romantic story from filmmaker Nicole Garcia stars Marion Cotillard as a French woman from a small village in the South of France who falls in love with a man she meets in the Alps. Set right at the end of World War II, she is married to a man she doesn't really love, only to find the man she really loves when she goes to a clinic in the mountains to heal her kidney stones. The full cast includes Louis Garrel, Alex Brendemühl, Brigitte Roüan, Victoire Du Bois. From the looks of it, this seems to be a very sensual, sultry thriller about a woman being allowed to be with her true love. Is that so much to »

Featurette for 'War for the Planet of the Apes' Examines the Stellar VFX

21 June 2017 1:34 PM, PDT

"I fight only to protect apes." 20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for War for the Planet of the Apes, focusing on the groundbreaking, unbelievable VFX work in the movie. Weta is the VFX studio responsible for bringing to life all of the apes in the movie, which is amazing because they didn't use a single real ape yet it's almost impossible to tell that they aren't real. Seriously. Weta has been improving with each of these three modern Apes movies, and this one has their best work yet. Andy Serkis returns as Caesar, and the cast includes Woody Harrelson as the Colonel. At this point, I really believe Fox needs to push Serkis for awards consideration, because it's jaw-dropping how much his performance makes Caesar feel real. I love that Fox is showing some of this behind-the-scenes footage now. Let's keep building up the hype. Here's the "Making History" featurette for Matt Reeves' War for the Planet of »

Lord & Miller Fired from the 'Han Solo' Movie in the Middle of Filming

21 June 2017 6:52 AM, PDT

Whoa! Major news to report. Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller will no longer be directing the Han Solo spin-off Star Wars movie, currently in the middle of filming. Lucasfilm and Lord/Miller have both released statements, via Hollywood Reporter, confirming the shocking news and admitting to "creative differences" as the reason. The project was already most of the way through filming, apparently with only a few weeks left, yet they're not going to finish and will instead hand over the work to someone else (yet to be announced). This is a huge shake-up in Hollywood, and will be talked about for years. For now, the original May 25th, 2018 release date is still unchanged, with reshoots planned later this summer with a new director. This kind of filmmaking news is usually referred to as just a "parting of ways", with each side agreeing to move on. However, THR (who broke the original news story) is reporting in a separate article that »

Lily Collins Stars in Official Trailer for Anorexia Drama 'To the Bone'

20 June 2017 12:46 PM, PDT

"What's going on with you?" Netflix has released the first official trailer for a film titled To the Bone, an anorexia drama that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to mostly positive reviews. To the Bone is the directorial debut of producer/writer Marti Noxon, and tells a very real story of a young woman struggling with anorexia, or the inability to eat and an intense obsession with looking thin. Lily Collins stars, giving a remarkable (and almost unbelievable because of how scary thin she is) performance as Ellen. The full cast includes Keanu Reeves, Alex Sharp, Kathryn Prescott, Liana Liberato, Alanna Ubach, Carrie Preston, and Ciara Bravo. I caught this at Sundance and it's an endearing, heartfelt film worth your time. Here's the first official trailer for Marti Noxon's To the Bone, direct from Netflix's YouTube: A young anorexic woman (Lily Collins) reluctantly enters an unconventional treatment program, where she bonds with other residents struggling with eating disorders.

Official Trailer for Belgian Drama 'Souvenir' Starring Isabelle Huppert

20 June 2017 12:25 PM, PDT

"You need a lot of love. From your audience, too." Studiocanal has debuted the first UK trailer for a Belgian drama titled Souvenir, starring French actress Isabelle Huppert as a former singer now working at a factory in a small town. The film played at a few major festivals last fall, including Toronto and London, and is opening in Us theaters later this year. Huppert plays Liliane Cheverny, who was once "Laura", a singer who finished second in the 1974 European Song Contest. Her singing dreams are reignited when she meets a young boxer who convinces her she should make a comeback. Also starring Kévin Azaïs, Johan Leysen, Muriel Bersy, and Benjamin Boutboul. This looks like a provocative, passionate film about lost dreams. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Bavo Defurne's Souvenir, direct from YouTube: Liliane (Isabelle Huppert) was once "Laura", a rising star in the singing world, who had her moment of glory when she finished second in the »

Full Red Band Trailer for 'American Assassin' Starring Dylan O'Brien

20 June 2017 10:04 AM, PDT

"This whole thing is just a means to an end for you, isn't it?" CBS Films + Lionsgate have released a new full-length trailer for an action thriller titled American Assassin, adapted from Vince Flynn's novel of the same name. The film tells the story of Mitch Rapp, an "ordinary every day all-American athlete and scholar" who's secretly recruited by the CIA after his girlfriend is killed. He becomes one of the best assassins they've ever seen, but gets into big trouble on an assignment in Beirut. The Maze Runner star Dylan O'Brien plays Mitch, and the rest of the cast includes Michael Keaton, Taylor Kitsch, Sanaa Lathan, Scott Adkins, David Suchet, and Shiva Negar. I'm curious about Kitsch as the bad guy and the big explosion at the end. Here's the new red band trailer (+ poster) for Michael Cuesta's American Assassin, direct from YouTube: You can still watch the first teaser trailer for American Assassin here, to see even more »

Watch: Excellent Deaf Horror Short 'Dawn of the Deaf' from England

20 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT

"I feel like you're ashamed everywhere we go." Another awesome horror short film worth your time. This year is a stand out year for deaf performances/characters, in films like Wonderstruck, John Wick: Chapter 2, and Baby Driver. We can also include this short film, titled Dawn of the Deaf, about a few deaf people who must band together to survive in a zombie apocalypse - though it's much more about the relationship the main girl has with everyone in her life. It was made by deaf actors in London and tries to show disability as a strength, not a weakness. Starring Caroline Ward as Sam. This takes its time to build up and establish all the characters, then tosses in some crazy twists that have a strong emotional effect. Watch in full below. Thanks to Alicia Malone for the tip on this. Description from Vimeo: "When a strange sound wipes out the hearing population, a small group of Deaf people must »
