We all love movie trailers. Some of us get to the theater early so we can catch all the trailers. We review trailers. Studios even make trailers for trailers. (And we review those, too.) Trailers get people excited. That’s their job, if they’re done correctly. Comic-Con has unveiled a bunch of trailers over the past few days. Cinelinx is taking a second look at seven trailers for some of the most anticipated upcoming movies.
Justice League: What’s immediately obvious from the trailer is that the tone of this film will be very different from the earlier Snyderverse films. When the WB opened the set to critics several weeks back, everyone present said that they were encouraged by the humorous scenes being filmed featuring the Flash. This trailer seems to back up those claims, focusing on the interactions of the team members. The thread of the trailer »

Back in May, Lionsgate released a teaser for the new horror flick "The Woods." Little did we know, it's really the sequel to the genre-defining "The Blair Witch Project" simply called "Blair Witch."
Some lucky fans at Comic-Con were treated to a late-night Friday screening of "Blair Witch." They all thought they were seeing "The Woods." And the word-of-mouth has been generally positive! Forget "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2," this is the "Blair Witch" sequel we've all been waiting for!
I can't wait when it's released September 16. For now, let's check out the new trailer of "Blair Witch."
Lionsgate has set a Sept. 16 launch for Blair Witch, the third film in the found-footage horror franchise — and the first in 16 years.
The studio revealed the project Friday night at Comic-Con at what had been billed as a screening of “The Woods,” releasing a poster and trailer. The updated story, directed by Adam Wingard, is set in the remote Maryland woods where three filmmakers disappeared 20 years ago.
“Blair Witch” centers on a group of college students venturing into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland to uncover the mysteries surrounding the disappearance of the sister of one of the students — who many believe is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods, but as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence.

One of the biggest surprises to come out of San Diego's Comic-Con so far is the revelation that a sequel to The Blair Witch Project, the horror movie that spawned an entire found-footage genre, will arrive in theaters in September.
Titled simply Blair Witch, the film takes place in present day, with the brother of Heather, the girl who disappeared in the 1999 original, setting forth into the Black Hills Forest of Maryland in search of his sister, The Playlist reports.
If it seems like the Blair Witch sequel has been conjured up out of nowhere, »
It’s been 17 years since “The Blair Witch Project” changed the horror genre and independent filmmaking forever, and yet the new surprise sequel, “Blair Witch” (formerly known as “The Woods”) is hoping you’ve forgotten — at least a little bit. Helmed by Adam Wingard (“You’re Next,” “The Guest”) and written by his regular collaborator Simon Barrett, “Blair Witch” is shot, constructed and executed just like the original. And the slow-build fright fest will please genre purists — perhaps enough to reinvigorate the potential franchise — even if it feels all too familiar to the rest of us.
Starting in the very (scary) house we left off in — a fact given away in the trailer — Wingard and Barrett introduce us to four fresh faces, one of which holds close ties to a victim from the original. Driven to the woods for answers, the group also aims to make a documentary on their friend’s eerie journey. »

Has it come to this? Is legendary documentary filmmaker Joe Berlinger now making branded content for the undeniably charismatic self-help guru Tony Robbins? Sure, filmmakers fund their passion projects through a variety of projects that pay the bills, from Errol Morris’ commercial work to Berlinger’s own helming of Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, but Tony Robbins: I’m Not Your Guru is a particular beast of a concert film with an undeniable emotional power that isn’t quite the character study I had come to expect from the director of Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.
Of course, the film may resist criticism as Robbins devotees receive access to his Date With Destiny, an event they might otherwise not be able to attend. Berlinger takes his camera to Robbins’ 6-day Boca Raton retreat, an “intimate” event limited to an audience of 2,500 where the cost of attendance is just »
