8 January 2017 2:32 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The connection between stand-up comedy and sadness has long been apparent, and what we see of these performers onstage is almost never the full story. For a more lighthearted examination of this than, say, the documentary “Misery Loves Comedy,” consider the trailer for “Dying Laughing” — a nonfiction look at the failures that preceded the successes of Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Jerry Lewis and more.

“Comedy is purely a result of your ability to withstand self-torture,” says Seinfeld as it opens. Lewis, meanwhile, points out that audiences can always tell the difference between a rehearsed joke and something spontaneous that “comes from the heart.” None of them are exempt from bad nights and hecklers, of course, and Kevin Hart — by many metrics the most successful comic in the world at the moment — recounts being »

Preceded by the likes of “Alien vs. Predator” and “Freddy vs. Jason,” the film makes no secret of being total fan service for the two respective J-horror franchises. (Both have been remade here in America, of course, though purists contend that neither live up to the original.) The trailer gives a brief rundown of the two villains’ mythologies — Sadako comes from a cursed VHS, while Kayako is tied to the house in which she died — before setting them loose on one another, ostensibly as a means of »

7 January 2017 2:40 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From cult icon Roger Corman comes the sensational, action-packed film “Death Race 2050,” sequel to his 1975 post-apocalyptic picture “Death Race 2000.” The red band trailer, which was recently released, features even more car crashes, explosions, blood and pedestrian fatalities.

Directed by G.J. Echternkamp, the film is set in the year 2050 when America is controlled by a powerful corporate government ruled by The Chairman (Malcom McDowell). The story follows the most violent event of the year, as drivers compete cross-country in a road race, scoring points for shamelessly running people over, as well as crashing each other off the road.

“Now this is all about freedom,” says The Chairman. “The freedom to sit on your big, fat ass all day and watch the single greatest sports event known to man. Welcome to the Death Race.”

Manu Bennett co-star as Frankenstein, the reigning champion of the race. Additional cast members include Marci Miller, »
