Watch: Full Trailer for Sci-Fi Thriller 'Identicals' from Simon Pummell

Identicals Trailer

"There's a better life waiting for us." Samuel Goldwyn Films has released an official trailer for the sci-fi psychological thriller called Identicals, from director Simon Pummell, and it looks pretty damn cool. At least, it has some amazingly cool visuals that I really dig. Is it actually a good film? Well, I don't really know, I'm not so sure. Starring Lachlan Nieboer, Nora-Jane Noone, Nick Blood, Tony Way, and Jacinta Mulcahy. The film, originally called Brand New-U, is about a futuristic company called Brand New-U that allows people to create a brand new life using other people known as "Identicals" as some kind of surrogate. Obviously, not everything is going to go as planned. Watch the new trailer below and tell us what you think.

Watch: New Official US Trailer for 'The Program' Starring Ben Foster

The Program Official US Trailer

"When you say, 'I can't go any further', say to yourself: 'I'm flying!'" eOne Films has debuted the official US trailer for The Program, the film by Stephen Frears telling the story of Lance Armstrong, played by Ben Foster. The film covers his entire career, including early introduction to the Tour, his era of doping, attempts to lie and cover it up for years, and eventual fall out. Chris O'Dowd plays journalist David Walsh, who was constantly after Armstrong for years because he knew something was up. The full cast includes Jesse Plemons, Lee Pace, Guillaume Canet and many others. I still want to see this, it looks like a deep investigation into one of the craziest cover-up stories in sports history. Compare to these first two trailers.

Anna Kendrick & Sam Rockwell Together in First Trailer for 'Mr. Right'

Mr. Right Trailer

"I'm on a date, and I like this girl. Can't we do this tomorrow?" Focus World has debuted a trailer for the new romantic comedy Mr. Right, about a lovable goofy girl who ends up with a guy that seems perfect until she discovers he's a hitman gone rogue. We all know how this is going to turn out, right? Of course after some bumps in the road and scary moments, she's going to live happily ever after with him, there's no doubt about it. That's always how these films end. Anna Kendrick stars along with Sam Rockwell, and a fun cast including Tim Roth, Anson Mount, James Ransone, Michael Eklund, Katie Nehra and RZA. Despite my love for these two lead actors, this movie looks as formulaic and bland as can possibly be. Enjoy.

Frank Grillo is Back First Trailer for Sequel 'The Purge: Election Year'

The Purge: Election Year Trailer

"This is not a drill." Universal has debuted the first official trailer for horror sequel The Purge: Election Year, which is essentially The Purge 3 following The Purge: Anarchy in 2014. The plot this time involves Frank Grillo returning as the head of security protecting Senator Charlie Roan, played by Elizabeth Mitchell, who encounters more than he bargained for when the annual purge event brings out the crazies. The "Election Year" angle is quite bold. The full cast from this one includes Raymond J. Barry, Ethan Phillips, Sparrowhawk, Edwin Hodge and many others. This latest Purge entry looks about as dark and violent and crazy as the last two, so if you've enjoyed the others this will be more of the same. Have at it.

Watch: Powerful Crime Drama Short 'Los Angeles 1991' by Zac&Mac

Los Angeles 1991 Short Film

"On the day they were going to kill him, Jun Seo did not arrive at his liquor store until 5PM." It's always hard to introduce short films without giving away too much about them. I prefer to say the least possible before simply encouraging watching the short in full. This one is titled Los Angeles 1991 and is set in Los Angeles in 1991 and is a real-life story about a shooting at a local liquor store. It's a very powerful drama that makes you think about how different lives intersect and interact in a tragedy like this. The short is made by "Zac&Mac", directed by a filmmaker known as "Macgregor", also known in real life as Miguel de Olaso. He's definitely proving that he can handle real-life drama and emotions with this short. Watch below in full.

Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Adaptation Release Pushed to 2018

Ready Player One

Briefly: This is exactly what we expected, and it's good to see Warner Bros making a smart move. WB has shifted and pushed back the release date of Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One adaptation from its original slot in December 2017 to spring of 2018 - specifically March 30th, 2018. This is mainly because Disney recently changed the release of Star Wars: Episode VIII (being directed by Rian Johnson) back to December 15th, 2017 (from May) - which was the exact same day that Ready Player One was originally set for release. It's always hard to tell whether Spielberg will make his release anyway, but this is just a big sigh of relief because there would be no point in seeing WB and Disney go head-to-head with these two massive sci-fi / fan-oriented projects. I'm excited to see both Star Wars and Ready Player One - three months apart.

Have You Seen Her? - Four Gorgeous Posters for Pixar's 'Finding Dory'

Pixar's Finding Dory

Can you help us find Dory? Where did she go this time? Disney-Pixar have unveiled a gorgeous set of four teaser posters for Finding Dory, the upcoming sequel to the beloved animated adventure Finding Nemo. This animated sequel sees Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, getting lost on a search for her parents, and Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, joining with Nemo to head back out and save her. We're still waiting to see more footage and get a better sense of the story aside from the original details (see paragraph below) but otherwise, I'm very excited for this just because I love all the different fish and animals found in the ocean. These are stunningly simple posters. I love the last one (with the sea anemone) the most. Take a look below.

Watch: Full-length UK Trailer for Ben Wheatley's 'High-Rise' Arrives

High-Rise Poster

"How's the high life?" "Prone to fits of mania, narcissism, and power failure." Studiocanal UK has debuted a full-length trailer for Ben Wheatley's film High-Rise, starring Tom Hiddleston as one of the newest residents of the top floor of a massive high rise complex that represents social classes. Jeremy Irons plays the man at the very top, joined by a cast including Luke Evans, Sienna Miller, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Keeley Hawes and Sienna Guillory. This is looking like the kind of dark, devious, dastardly film I'm anxious to see right now. Lots of complex ideas about society and power crammed into one crazy story - read Jeremy's review or Amanda's review. Hopefully this will be hitting US theaters soon, too. Enjoy!

First Full Trailer for Lee Tamahori's New Zealand Drama 'The Patriarch'

The Patriarch Trailer

"This country is great because of hard working men. Don't let us forget who our friends are, nor who are our enemies." eOne in Australia has debuted the first official trailer for the film The Patriarch, otherwise known as Mahana down in New Zealand, the latest drama from filmmaker Lee Tamahori (who previously made films like The Edge and Die Another Day before circling back around). The film tells a tale of family rivalry and reconciliation, set against the stunning backdrop of rural New Zealand in the 1960's. Temuera Morrison stars as Grandfather Mahana, along with Akuhata Keefe and many other fresh young faces. This trailer starts fairly slow, but picks up and becomes something quite beautiful and alluring by the end.

Ben Wheatley's 'High-Rise' Film Has the Best Posters So Far This Year

High-Rise Poster

Leave the real world behind. Even though it's barely a week into February, I'm impressed by the amount of high quality marketing material we've seen this year so far. While I must acknowledge that the marketing for Deadpool has been brilliant across the board, and this new poster for Allegiant is worth pointing out, the best poster art released this year so far is for Ben Wheatley's High-Rise. The film already premiered last year and played at a few festivals (read Jeremy's review or Amanda's review) but has yet to be given a US release date, even though it opens in the UK in a few months. These posters are promoting the UK release, which is perhaps the explanation behind why they're so unique. View both High-Rise posters in full below.

Official US Trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Funky Romance 'The Lobster'

The Lobster Trailer

"Have you ever danced with anybody?" Alchemy has debuted the official US trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' latest film called The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell. The film is mostly in English, set in a dystopian future where single people end up at a villa where they must find a mate within 45 days or be turned into an animal. It's a brilliant mockery of modern society and romance, and some moviegoers will totally fall or it, while others will find it annoying. The full cast includes Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux, John C. Reilly and Ben Whishaw. This trailer starts to show more of the second half where Farrell ends up with a group hiding out in the forest, all in pursuit of Weisz. I seriously enjoyed this film - read my NYFF review. Enjoy!

Must Watch: Full Green Band Trailer for Key & Peele's Comedy 'Keanu'

Keanu Trailer

"Here kitty, kitty!" Warner Bros has unleashed the new green band trailer for the comedy Keanu, starring Keegan-Michael Key & Jordan Peele. This is the regular green version of the red band trailer that was debuted a few weeks ago, just before the Sundance Film Festival kicked off, which sold me already. Key & Peele star as "black nerds" that go on a mission to find and rescue their missing kitten named Keanu. The supporting cast also includes Luis Guzmán, Will Forte, Nia Long, Rob Huebel & Method Man. I've been excited to see this ever since I heard about it and the footage looks hilarious, love these two comedians.

Efron, Kendrick, DeVine in 'Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates' Trailer

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Trailer

"Who are these girls?!" You are cordially invited to meet the Stangle Brothers in this new comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. This team-up stars Zac Efron and Adam DeVine as Dave and Make, respectively, along with Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick as their dates, in a wacky comedy about two "hard-partying" brothers who need dates for their sister's wedding. Ever since noticing this film with this fun title on the release schedule, I've been wondering if it would play like Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. But it's actually much more like Step Brothers meets Wedding Crashers with a twist. See below.

Watch: Two Turkish Airlines Ads for the Cities in 'Batman v Superman'

Batman v Superman Turkish Airlines

"There's never been a better time to visit our great city." Whoa! Now these are cool TV ads, not just your conventional TV spots. Turkish Airlines has debuted two different 60-second TV ads that are also promoting Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman. Each spot is a travel ad for visiting either Gotham City, hosted by Wayne Enterprise CEO Bruce Wayne, played by Ben Affleck; or Metropolis, hosted by Lex Corp's CEO Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg. There is mention of Metropolis' "heroes" and they show Superman flying around. I just love the way these TV spots are presented, like they're naturally a part of the world, and an airline deal is totally normal. They run back-to-back on TV and are very effective. I want to visit Gotham!
