Thomas Haden Church & Terrence Howard in 'Cardboard Boxer' Trailer

2 hours ago

"I wish someone would see me, just to know I am here..." Well Go USA has debuted a trailer for an indie drama titled Cardboard Boxer, starring Thomas Haden Church as a homeless man struggling to make ends meet. He's coerced by two teens to fight other men for cash, but obviously doesn't like doing so, and just wants to get away from his life on the streets. The cast includes Terrence Howard, Boyd Holbrook, and Macy Gray. The official description calls the film an "unflinching look at the lives of the displaced and forgotten members of society." This looks very powerful and heartbreaking, and even though Thomas Haden Church is almost hard to look at, he seems to be giving an earnest performance. This is worth a quick watch. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Knate Lee's Cardboard Boxer, in high def from Apple: Willie (Thomas Haden Church »

Zombies, VHS Games, Heists & Thrills at Germany's Fantasy Filmfest

6 hours ago

Over the past week and a half I've been attending a few screenings of films as part of the Fantasy Filmfest in Berlin (where I now live). Inspired by and operated similar to Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX and Fantasia in Montreal, the Fantasy Filmfest is a horror/sci-fi/genre festival in Germany (taking place in multiple cities over these past few weeks). Their catchy tagline is "Fear Good Movies" and their line-up of films this year is impressive, including some of my favorites from other fests like: Swiss Army Man, Under the Shadow, Train to Busan, Yoga Hosers, and War on Everyone. I caught four films over the last few weeks, two of them worth recommending. Overall, I'm glad I heard about this fest (from a fellow movie lover in Germany) - I always enjoy seeing some of the latest genre films, especially since there's so many out there every year. »

James Cameron's 'Terminator 2' in 3D Will Arrive in Theaters in 2017

7 hours ago

"The unknown future rolls toward us. I face it, for the first time, with a sense of hope. Because if a machine, a Terminator, can learn the value of human life, maybe we can too." Get ready for the return of the Terminator movie we all love. James Cameron's 1991 sci-fi classic Terminator 2: Judgement Day is being re-released in theaters in 2017 in 3D. The Facebook page for the T2 movie confirmed and released a poster to go along with the news. If, like me, you went to one of the Universal Studios theme parks as a kid you probably fondly remember the Terminator 2 ride in 3D (called "T2 3-D: Battle Across Time"), pretty much the best use of 3D up until Cameron gave us Avatar. Here's to hoping this 3D conversion is as good. Here's the poster for Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 3D in 2017 officially released to announce »

Second Trailer for Rob Zombie's Evil Carnival Game Horror Movie '31'

8 hours ago

"Nightmarish on every level." If you already hate carnivals, you might want to stay away from this. Saban Films has released a second trailer for Rob Zombie's latest horror feature, titled 31, about an evil carnival, twisted game. Five carnival workers are kidnapped and held hostage in a "Hell-like" compound where they must survive for 12 hours against a gang of sadistic clowns to escape alive. Starring Sheri Moon Zombie (of course), Malcolm McDowell, Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Torsten Voges, Sandra Rosko, and Meg Foster. I can't even tell what's going on in half of this trailer, way too many close-ups and it's over-edited. But if you dig Zombie's messed up horror flicks, then have at it. Here's the second official trailer (+ poster) for Rob Zombie's latest film 31, direct from YouTube: You can also still watch the first trailer for Rob Zombie's 31 here, for even more footage from this. »

8 hours ago

"When the two connect, the true terror begins." Eureka Entertainment has debuted an official (subtitled) trailer for the Japanese horror-thriller Creepy, which has been playing the film festival circuit all year so far. The latest from filmmaker Kiyoshi Kurosawa, the film is about an ex-detective and criminal psychologist who discovers that his new neighbor isn't quite who he says he is. The cast includes Hidetoshi Nishijima, Teruyuki Kagawa, Yüko Takeuchi, Haruna Kawaguchi, and Masahiro Higashide. Not only has it played at numerous fests, but the film has received some great reviews so far. One review on ScreenAnarchy says "it's an example of a master attempting a new direction -- in the form of a good, old-fashioned, bloody, spirited thriller." This definitely does look creepy. That guy's smile is the freakiest part about it. Have a look. Here's the official UK trailer for Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Creepy, direct from Eureka's YouTube: Takakura is a former detective. »

Watch: Another Weird Trailer for Wacky Horror 'The Greasy Strangler'

29 August 2016 6:06 PM, PDT

"Kiss my cheeks, cherry lips." FilmRise has released a second trailer for the wacky horror film The Greasy Strangler, which premiered at Sundance this year to quite a bit of acclaim. The first teaser trailer for this was pretty messed up, focusing more on the gore and gross side of this film. This new trailer is packed full of sex and nudity, the kind you don't want to see, but that's what this film is all about. The surreal horror stars Michael St. Michaels as Big Ronnie, along with Sky Elobar as Big Brayden, plus Elizabeth De Razzo and Gil Gex. It's about an aging disco enthusiast who turns into a creepy, grease-covered strangler at night. The other story twist revealed in this trailer is the brutal father-son rivalry for the same woman. Get greasy. Here's the new highly-nsfw official trailer for Jim Hosking's The Greasy Strangler, from YouTube: The Los Angeles-set "surreal, »

"Now I have a chance to fight for something." Ambi Group has debuted the first official trailer for James Franco's adaptation of John Steinbeck's acclaimed novel In Dubious Battle, about a group of workers on apple farms in the 1930s who rise up and strike against the landowners.

This actually looks pretty damn inspiring, I have to admit, I'm intrigued. Check it.

Legendary Actor / Comedian Gene Wilder Has Passed Away at Age 83

29 August 2016 4:44 PM, PDT

"Thanks for stopping by Earth for a while." -Olivia Wilde. Another legendary actor has passed away today. We're sad to report the death of the one-and-only Gene Wilder, who died at the age of 83 of complications from Alzheimer's disease. Wilder was nominated for two Oscars and two Golden Globes, but never won either, despite writing and starring in some of the most memorable and beloved films of all-time. He's most known for playing Willy Wonka in the classic 1971 musical version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (one of my favorites), and he worked closely with Mel Brooks for years, starring in Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein. This is another tough loss to entertainment, but he will be remembered fondly. Here are some of the tweets being posted in memory of Gene Wilder today, including one from Mel Brooks: "We are the music makers. And we are the »

Watch This: 'Chasing The Infinite Sky' - New 'Star Trek' Short Fan Film

29 August 2016 12:36 PM, PDT

"Albatross welcomes you. Prepare for docking." Sometimes fans come up with tributes that rival the actual work, and this is a great example of that. This new Star Trek fan film, titled Chasing The Infinite Sky, was released at the end of July timed with the opening of Star Trek Beyond. Created by Albert Martinez entirely in his own spare time, with VFX co-created by Ricardo Elliott, the short is about Captain Storm piloting a new experimental ship called the U.S.S. Albatross. It focuses more on space travel than anything else, inspired by J.J. Abrams' visuals, but it's still seriously impressive and enjoyable to watch even if you're not the biggest Trekkie. There isn't much of a story but that doesn't bother me because it's so nice to look at. Described on YouTube: "I created this fanmade conceptual Short piece simply to express my love for the franchise. »
