Ben Wheatley and his team are among the most interesting fresh talents working today. The US is just now getting a taste of last year’s Sightseers, a strange tale about a boring couple on a boring vacation who begin killing people. Now there’s A Field in England, which is a bit of a departure from the Wheatley team’s previous efforts, being a black-and-white period film. But it still looks to be bleak, surreal, and violent, which is right in line with the rest of their work. | Full Story
James Mangold’s Marvel comics project The Wolverine has been blessed with another trailer.
Most of the scenes were already shown in the first full-length trailer, but there is some additional footage that provides a better glimpse into the film’s plot.
In the first Wolverine flick, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, we witnessed how Logan got his claws and anger management issues. The new trailer offers more details into why and how he tries to get rid of both. | Full Story
This is another one of those movies I really wish I’d caught while I was at Sundance this year, when it was originally titled Toy’s House. This new trailer really sells the modern-day Stand By Me, truth-of-adolescence vibe that it seems to be going for. Plus, Nick Offerman deadpanning is always nice.
Joe Toy (Nick Robinson), on the verge of adolescence, finds himself increasingly frustrated by his single father, Frank’s (Nick Offerman) attempts to manage his life. | Full Story
The first full length Riddick trailer has made its way online, and from the looks of things, the upcoming film may be filled with even more badass Vin Diesel and strange dangerous creatures than the first installment, Pitch Black.
Aside from Vin Diesel, Riddick stars Katee Sackhoff, Dave Bautista, Jordi Mollà, Matt Nable, Bokeem Woodbine, Raoul Trujillo, and Nolan Gerard Funk.
Judging from the trailer, writer/director David Twohy returned to the original themes featured in Pitch Black, abandoned those introduced in the interplanetary debacle known as Chronicles of Riddick. | Full Story
Where have you been, Alfonso Cuarón? You direct Children of Men, one of the best movies of the 00′s, and then you up and disappear for seven years? That’s just cruel.
But now he’s back! In outer space! With Sandra Bullock and George Clooney! As astronauts who are completely stranded after an explosion aboard the space station. You might note something: this is the scariest scenario that a human being can possibly be in. | Full Story
Well folks, here’s Meryl Streep’s Oscar nomination for next year. August: Osage County will continue the grand prestige picture tradition of bringing together a group of distinguished white people to affect Southern drawls and yell at each other.
And what a group of distinguished white people! I won’t bother to restate the list of names that you can see on the film’s poster. Although I will draw attention to one name in particular: Benedict Cumberbatch. | Full Story
It is simply unacceptable that we have gone this long without an article about this trailer. This is the concluding film of the “Blood and Ice Cream” trilogy, director Edgar Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s three films of horrifying violence and Cornetto ice cream. The previous installments in the series, Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, are two of the best comedies of the 00′s. So we have reason to be excited for this film. | Full Story
Man, these parodies of Oscar bait movies just get more and more convincing! This fake trailer for The Butler posits a movie based on the real life of Eugene Allen, who served as a butler in the White House for over 30 years, from the 1950′s through the 80′s. Forest Whitaker plays “Cecil Gaines,” Allen’s fictional counterpart, while Oprah (Oprah!) plays his wife.
And just see who else is in this! | Full Story
