"It's something that could change the world." What Is this movie?! Saban Films has unveiled a full-length trailer for the unique sci-fi feature Kill Switch (not related to the Steven Seagal action film Kill Switch). This is based on a Pov concept short film called What's in the Box?, which a visual effects supervisor has turned into a feature film. Dan Stevens stars as a pilot who heads into another dimension (created by an energy experiment gone wrong) to save Earth. Also starring Charity Wakefield and Bérénice Marlohe. I really don't know what's going on, but it does seem very cool. This looks like it's half video game, and half movie combined into one, and I'm not sure it's going to work. But I'm definitely curious anyway. Get ready. Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Tim Smit's Kill Switch, direct from YouTube (via Tmb): You can also still »

Dan Stevens is definitely having a moment. The "Downton Abbey" star had been a familiar commodity since before his time on the period drama but that show really landed him on the map. Not long after leaving the show he came out swinging for the genre fences with a memorable turn in Adam Wingard's The Guest and he's been popping up everywhere since then.
The sci-fi actioner stars Stevens as Will Porter, a pilot who fights to save his family after an experiment to create unlimited energy goes wrong. If you managed to get any of that plotting from the trailer, you're definitely reading some sublimi [Continued ...] »
"This is the opportunity to explore impossible frontiers." What the heck is this? Saban Films has released a very weird teaser trailer for a sci-fi film titled Kill Switch (not related to the Steven Seagal action film Kill Switch). This one is actually based on a Pov concept short film called What's in the Box?, which a visual effects supervisor has turned into a feature-length film. And it still has some video game-esque Pov shots in it. Dan Stevens stars, with Charity Wakefield, and Bérénice Marlohe. I don't even know what is going on in this trailer, only that Dan Stevens plays a pilot, and there's very weird sci-fi stuff happening. Fire it up. Here's the first teaser trailer for Tim Smit's Kill Switch, direct from YouTube (via Tmb): A pilot (Dan Stevens) battles to save his family and the planet after an experiment for unlimited energy goes wrong. »

Raoul Peck’s documentary about the life and work of James Baldwin is a stunning tribute to the writer’s vital work. Even thirty years after his death, Baldwin’s words still cut to the heart of issues confronting American society. With performances of Baldwin’s writing from narrator Samuel L. Jackson, Peck provides a deeply human gateway to understanding the achievements and contributions of a man who still has much to say about how our country understands race.
2) “The Salesman” (Available May 2)

In 2014, after financing features and TV shows for some three decades, Haim Saban was ready to establish a North American film label of his own. “With the very rapid expansion of distribution platforms, we want to be in the supply chain with as many types of programs as we can,” he says.
“I pitched a business plan based in the premium VOD world, and there were many people that I had to get through in order to get Haim to approve it,” says Saban Films president Bromiley. “He was concerned that the film business could be very volatile, and wasn’t interested in taking huge chances, so he asked lots of questions.”

The cast also includes Clifton Collins, Jr., Michael Vartan, James Lafferty, Daniel Sunjata, Caity Lotz, Jeremy Ratchford, Don Harvey, Stefanie Scott and Dale Dickey.
