It was a big week for Jon Ossoff, the fresh-faced 30-year-old who shook up Georgia’s congressional race by landing 48.1 percent of the vote, catapulting him into a June runoff with Republican Karen Handel in a state that hasn’t had a Democrat in Congress for four decades. The excitement and speculation about Ossoff’s momentum sending a message to the Trump administration about waning interest in its platform has ignored one key detail: He’s a documentary filmmaker. In recent years, Ossoff has served as an executive producer on television documentaries that wrestle with a range of pressing issues, from Isis to ebola outbreaks.
That places him in a longstanding tradition of documentarians with an activist bent. And while Ossoff may be the only non-fiction director jockeying for elected office this year, plenty of other documentary filmmakers will present new work designed to help a troubled world in 2017 — and »

Al Gore has had his finger on the pulse of so many of the crucial junctures of our time. The early days of the Internet, the Clinton administration, his own Presidential bid that was - until recently - one of the most controversial elections of all time. And then there's been his stalwart crusade to raise awareness about climate change. Some dismissed his first major film about climate change, An Inconvenient Truth, as too much of a vanity project. But year after year, its facts and its message have proven to be increasingly topical. And unfortunately for the planet, they've also still been dismissed by vital institutions. And so here we are, 11 years later with the trailer for a follow-up film, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. Those who caught the film at...

The first official trailer for An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power was released on Tuesday. The timing of the clip's release comes at a crucial point for climate change discussion, with its release coming the same day Donald Trump signed an executive order to rescind Obama's Clean Power Plan and a host of other climate-related regulations.
The trailer opens with a clip of Trump mocking climate change while on the campaign trail. "It's supposed to be 70 degrees today, it's freezing here. Speaking of global warming, where is – we need some global warming. »

"Send a message of truth to power." Paramount and Participant Media have debuted the first official trailer for the highly anticipated (right?) sequel to Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, titled An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. You've no doubt already heard about this, as the film premiered opening night at the Sundance Film Festival in January to mostly positive reviews. Al Gore returns, a decade after the original film, to tell us all about how things have only gotten worse and that we must do something now. An Inconvenient Sequel features a clearly angry Al Gore speaking even louder, with more impatience, about the truly worrisome issue of climate change and the man-made pollution causing it. I much prefer the other doc Chasing Coral, but this one is still worth watching. More than anything I hope it helps makes a difference. Here's the first trailer for Bonni Cohen & Jon Shenk's doc An Inconvenient Sequel, »

Nearly 11 years after the powerful Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth hit theaters, former Vice President Al Gore returns to spread awareness of climate change even further in the highly-anticipated follow-up An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power. During Paramount's CinemaCon presentation today, the studio released the first trailer for this documentary sequel, which will hit theaters nationwide on June 28. This trailer also includes footage from President Donald Trump's campaign rallies, where he promises to put an end to the Environmental Protection Agency, at a time when we very well may need it the most.

In 2006, former United States Vice President Al Gore released An Inconvenient Truth, a documentary film which sought to educate citizens about global warming. The film became a critical and box-office success and has been credited for raising public awareness of climate change. Now, over a decade later, Al Gore is back with a timely follow-up in which he "continues his tireless fight traveling... Read More »

It turns out winning an Oscar and becoming one of the highest-grossing documentaries of all-time does not alone solve climate change issues. Therefore, this summer brings a sequel that, like many other films released in the season, will find our protagonist fighting to save the planet from destruction. However, with An Inconvenient Sequel, the stakes are much higher. Al Gore‘s follow-up to his 2006 hit documentary, directed by Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, will land in July and now the first trailer has arrived.
We said in our review from the Sundance Film Festival premiere earlier this year, “There have been a slew of climate-focused docs in recent years, so much so that Sundance now has a specific category devoted to the subject. And as much as there has been progress, it’s difficult to see these days. Gore, in responding to the election of Donald Trump, cites his religion, »

Now that's an interesting choice of song.
Former Vice President Al Gore walked out to Nelly's risque song "Hot In Herre" to introduce the trailer for An Inconvenient Sequel.
"The climate crisis is not a partisan issue. As I've traveled around the world, I've found communities are embracing … solutions and transcending politics," Gore said of the movie, which is produced by Participant Media.
Though Gore did not speak out onstage about Trump, the trailer featured President Donald Trump speeches »

The former vice revealed presented the trailer during the Paramount presentation.
Reminiscent of the original, “An Inconvenient Sequel” depicted the dire consequences of a warming earth — from flooding in Miami and the Philippines, to the worst drought on record in Syria — bringing human suffering there that predated the ongoing civil war — to air pollution so bad in some parts of China that life expectancy has declined by six years.

Former Vice President Al Gore is back with a follow-up to his 2006 Oscar-winning documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” which takes a look at the progress made in environmental issues over the last 10 years — and the amount of work left to do. On Tuesday, Paramount Pictures released the trailer for “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” which was produced by Participant Media and opens with President Donald Trump joking about global warming during a campaign rally on what was apparently a cold day. The video then cuts to Gore talking about how one of the most poorly received parts »

“It's time to fight like your world depends on it.” That’s the tagline for An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, the follow-up to Al Gore and Davis Guggenheim’s Oscar-winning 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth. And now, if you’ll boot up your PowerPoint, we have the first trailer. It starts with — who else? — Donald Trump, joking at a rally about how chilly it is and saying, “We need some global warming.” (Cue laugh track.) But things get serious as former Vice… »
Just over a decade ago, Al Gore rocked the world with “An Inconvenient Truth,” his eye-opening lecture about the crisis of global warming. It’d be nice to say that people listened, but they haven’t really, and now he’s back with “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power,” which brings more hard facts that deniers are going to be hard pressed to ignore.
The new film finds Gore once again putting a spotlight on the fragile state of the planet, and the very real consequences it’s going to have on all of us if change doesn’t happen — and hopefully, it’s not too late.

Al Gore returned to Sundance this year with “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” just as the current administration was taking office, including an Epa chief who doesn’t actually believe in climate change. See how optimistic you feel after watching the film’s new trailer below.

Said trailer was unveiled as part of the documentary’s CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas. Bonnie Cohen and Jon Shenk directed the film, picking up where David Guggenheim left off as he followed Gore’s lecture tour more than a decade ago. “An Inconvenient Truth” was much-lauded, winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary and playing a part »

An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power is bound to the be the 2017 movie that many audiences willfully choose to ignore. The same thing happened with 2006’s Oscar-winning An Inconvenient Truth – too many people simply don’t want to acknowledge or accept responsibility for certain catastrophes that are just over the horizon.

Last month, Sony Pictures released a new song that will be featured in the upcoming Dark Tower trailer, although it wasn't made clear when the trailer will be released. We still don't have word on when the first footage will be released, but we have the next best thing, the first poster, which surfaced over the weekend. The trailer reveals the new tagline, "There are other worlds than these," while showcasing this upside-down world. If you look closely, you can spot Matthew McConaughey's Randall Flag and Idris Elba's Roland Deschain at the top and bottom of this poster.
The first trailer was originally slated to debut in late October, during Entertainment Weekly's first annual PopFest. However, the trailer leaked before the event, which had unfinished special effects, and wasn't received well by the fan community. It hasn't been confirmed if we'll be getting a completely new trailer, or »
For the legions of elementary and middle school students who spent hours in science labs or living rooms watching “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” the goofy, bow-tied host at the show’s center might as well be a superhero. With his labcoat and legendary “inertia is a property of matter” earworm, he even has a cape and his own theme song. Two decades after the show left the airwaves, the state of the national scientific discourse has been Nye’s bat-signal, luring him back into the public eye.
As a result, “Bill Nye: Science Guy,” the latest from “The Immortalists” duo David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg, isn’t as much about the man himself as it is the world that he feels still needs him. The main thrust of Alvarado and Sussberg’s documentary centers on the grey area of the current scientific landscape that Nye currently occupies. Verging on »

When Al Gore lost the 2000 presidential election, he found a new platform for his message in storytelling. One reason “An Inconvenient Truth” became a huge success for the environmental movement was Gore’s dramatic comeback made him a natural fit for the movies. He was a tireless advocate whose globe-spanning quest to save the planet excited audiences while bringing them closer to his cause. Now, it’s Joe Biden’s turn.
Judging by the powerful stories he told in a speech at the 2017 SXSW conference about his efforts to fight cancer, Biden would make a killer documentary subject. His appearance, part of SXSW’s Connect to End Cancer series, targeted the tech-savvy audience to play up his efforts to empower digital tools as a means to combat the disease. However, his speech had a distinctly cinematic arc that could easily transition to the big screen. Biden recently signed with CAA, »

From director David Leitch and starring Oscar winner Charlize Theron, the breakneck action-thriller Atomic Blonde will debut at the SXSW Film Festival Sunday, March 12 at the Paramount Theater before hitting theaters this summer. To celebrate this big announcement, Focus Features has debuted the new poster for Atomic Blonde, previously known as The Coldest City, which offers our first look at Charlize Theron as this deadly assassin. Hopefully this poster's arrival could signal that the first trailer is coming soon, but the studio hasn't confirmed a trailer debut date at this time.
Atomic Blonde made headlines in late 2015, when David Leitch came aboard to direct this action-thriller by himself. The former stuntman and stunt coordinator made his directorial debut with the 2014 cult classic John Wick, which he co-directed alongside Chad Stahelski, both of whom co-founded the stunt company 87Eleven. The directorial duo decided to part ways for the time being, with »
