First Trailer for Awkward Comedy 'Born Guilty' with Rosanna Arquette

Born Guilty Trailer

"What happens when you secretly pay someone to romance your Mom?" Freestyle Media has debuted an official trailer for a cute New York-set indie romantic comedy titled Born Guilty, from writer/director Max Heller. The ensemble comedy is about a mother and her son, both intervening in their lives a bit too much. Acclaimed actress Rosanna Arquette (of Pulp Fiction, After Hours, The Whole Nine Yards, Desperately Seeking Susan) stars as a "lonely and frazzled New York social worker." Her son is played by Jay Devore, and he decides to setup his free-spirited Australian friend Rawl, as played by David Coussins, with his mother - all the while trying to balance his own relationship, too. The cast includes Keesha Sharp, Anna Lore, Jay Klaitz, John Lavelle, and Xander Berkeley. This looks pretty bad, but have a look anyway.

Nicolas Cage Plays a Cop in True-Story Police Action Thriller Film '211'

211 Trailer

"Shots fired! Shots fired!" Momentum Pictures has released the official trailer for an action thriller titled 211, or #211, which is a reference to the police code "211" - meaning a robbery in progress. Inspired by one of the "longest and bloodiest bank heists in history", the film is described as a combination of End of Watch meets Black Hawk Down. Does it look like that description? See for yourself below. Nicolas Cage stars as a police officer who takes a civilian on a ride along, then gets caught up in this violent bank robbery heist. In addition to Cage, it also stars Cory Hardrict, Michael Rainey Jr., Ori Pfeffer, Weston Cage, Sophie Skelton and Alexandra Dinu. This looks like an all-out, action-packed, very intense bank robbery movie.

First Full Trailer for Jon M. Chu's 'Crazy Rich Asians' Romantic Comedy

Crazy Rich Asians Trailer

"These people aren't just rich, they're CRAZY rich." Warner Bros has unveiled the first official trailer for a new comedy titled Crazy Rich Asians, the latest film directed by Jon M. Chu (Step Up 2: The Streets, Step Up 3D, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, Now You See Me 2), which is actually more of a romantic comedy. The film features an international cast, led by Constance Wu and Henry Golding - making his feature film debut; along with Gemma Chan, Lisa Lu, Awkwafina, Harry Shum Jr., Ken Jeong, Michelle Yeoh, Sonoya Mizuno, Chris Pang, Jimmy O. Yang, Ronny Chieng, Remi Hii, Nico Santos, and Jing Lusi. The story follows a not-so-rich woman from New York who accompanies her boyfriend to a friend's wedding in Singapore, only to discover his family is extremely wealthy and his mom doesn't like her. This doesn't look as great as I was hoping, but at least it looks entertaining and way smarter than most comedies.

Full UK Trailer for Documentary 'Mansfield 66/67' on Jayne Mansfield

Mansfield Doc 66/67 Trailer

"Her whole life became chaos and drug use…" A new UK trailer has debuted for a creative musical dance / art documentary titled Mansfield 66/67, which premiered at many higher profile film festivals last year. This film already opened very quietly in the US last fall, but we never wrote about it or featured it. Now that it has a new UK trailer for its upcoming release there, why not toss this out for anyone curious. Mansfield 66/67 is about the last two years of movie goddess Jayne Mansfield's life, and the rumours swirling around her untimely death. "5 kids, 3 ex-husbands, and the first top actress to go nude on film, Jayne Mansfield is Hollywood Babylon made flesh! Was her tragic end caused by a curse?" Find out in this film and learn more about Jayne than you probably ever wanted to know. This looks like a very wild trip into her life and death.

First Trailer for Disneynature's Next Movie 'Penguins' Opening in 2019

Penguins Trailer

"He's looking for love." Disneynature has unveiled the first fun trailer for their next feature documentary, titled Penguins, arriving in theaters on Earth Day 2019. It's Disneynature's tradition to always preview their next film a year ahead of release on the Earth Day before, and they're doing that again with this one. Penguins is actually focused on mainly one little penguin, who stands out - an adorable little guy named Steve who joins millions of fellow males in the icy Antarctic spring on a quest to build a suitable nest, find a life partner and start a family. This looks remarkably adorable and so much fun, but that's of course because these filmmakers are experts, by now, at crafting very clever narrative stories around cute animals from this beautiful Earth we live on. So much amazing footage! I just hope it makes us all care more about our planet.

Trailer for Psychological Thriller 'A Good Dream' with Melany Bennett

A Good Dream Trailer

"There is a demon stuck in your skin." Or is it just a tattoo? Freestyle Digital Media has released an official trailer for an indie psychological thriller titled A Good Dream, the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Mahum Jamal, which premiered at a few smaller film festivals last year. The film is a very trippy, fanciful, creative thriller about a girl in her 20s trying to find herself living in New York City. When she suddenly finds herself haunted by a presence, she has trouble distinguishing fiction from reality and falls deeper into a world of her perceptions. Melany Bennett stars as Uma, with a cast including Karim Saleh, Victoria Atkin, and Kayvon Zand. This looks very cool, but I'm not sure how good it will really be - not much buzz around it in any way. Worth a look, especially for the clever animated touches added throughout. See below.

Official Trailer for the 50th Anniversary Re-Release of Kubrick's '2001'

2001: A Space Odyssey Trailer

"Open the pod bay doors, HAL." Warner Bros has unveiled a brand new trailer for the 50th anniversary re-release of Stanley Kubrick's seminal sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey. We've already written about this before, since Christopher Nolan will be presenting a new 70mm print, struck from the original negative, at the Cannes Film Festival this May. After it premieres at the festival, WB will then prepare for a nationwide re-release in theaters all over America. "Kubrick (who co-wrote the screenplay with Arthur C. Clarke) first visits our prehistoric ape-ancestry past, then leaps millennia (via one of the most mind-blowing jump cuts ever) into colonized space, and ultimately whisks astronaut Bowman (Keir Dullea) into uncharted space, perhaps even into immortality." The movie won one Oscar in 1969 for Best Special Visual Effects. Now is your chance to see it again on the big screen. Get hyped with the new trailer (which shows the end!).

Trailer for 'Boom for Real' About Jean-Michel Basquiat as a Teenager

Boom for Real Trailer

"His work was a texture of the city around him." "He was into letting art be itself…" Magnolia Pictures has released an official trailer for a documentary titled Boom for Real, made by director Sara Driver; in full it's: Boom for Real: The Late Teenage Years of Jean-Michel Basquiat. That title pretty much explains it all - this is a look at famed artist Jean-Michel Basquiat's teenage years, living in New York City, when he shaped his vision before becoming big. Early on, he was known as the street artist "SAMO" (as this trailer explains nicely) living in a tough time in NYC in the 70's and 80's, before becoming the world-famous artist he is known as today, known now by his own original name: Jean-Michel Basquiat. This looks very good, and I think I'm especially fascinated because it has such a specific focus on an artist's early years and what influenced/shaped him into the person he would become. I like this more than showing his entire life story.

New Official Trailer for Ryuhei Kitamura's Sniper Thriller 'Downrange'

Downrange Trailer

"Hell is on the way." Shudder has released an official trailer for a dark horror, thriller titled Downrange, the latest feature from Japanese genre filmmaker Ryuhei Kitamura (of Versus, The Midnight Meat Train, No One Lives, Lupin the Third). The film is about a group of friends who end up the target of a distant, vicious, hidden sniper after they pop a tire driving cross country. The film's cast includes Kelly Connaire, Stephanie Pearson, Rod Hernandez-Farella, Anthony Kirlew, Alexa Yeames, and Jason Tobias. This is basically a terrifying sniper survival movie on a dusty country road with no one around. The shot of the sniper in this trailer is very slick, and the way it builds is intense. Looks like a helluva scary sniper film.

Trailer for Underrated Filmmaking Doc 'Filmworker' About Leon Vitali

Filmworker Trailer

"Stanley assigned Leon to me." Kino Lorber has debuted a trailer for the indie documentary Filmworker, telling the story of "filmworker" and Stanley Kubrick's right-hand man Leon Vitali. This is a MUST see for film geeks and cinephiles, a fascinating look behind-the-scenes. Most probably don't know who Leon Vitali is, that's because he never was in the spotlight at all, but once you see this doc everything will change. Vitali started out as an up-and-coming actor in England, first landing a bigger role in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon as Lord Bullingdon. From there he gave up everything and devoted his life to Kubrick and started working behind-the-scenes as his right hand man, helping him in everything from editing to directing and so much more. This is a superb doc that is also another rare look at how Kubrick worked, what he was like on sets and how he made his masterpieces. It's an underrated gem, worth a watch whenever you can catch it.

Rupert Everett as Oscar Wilde in Full UK Trailer for 'The Happy Prince'

The Happy Prince Trailer

"I can make you happy." "Yes, you can." Lionsgate UK has released the trailer for Rupert Everett's film The Happy Prince, which he not only wrote and directed (and produced), but he also stars in it. Everett plays the infamous, talented writer Oscar Wilde, who was exiled from London at the end of the 1800s after it was discovered that he is gay. He spends most of his time in Paris, drunkenly making a fool of himself. The film's cast includes Colin Firth, Emily Watson, Colin Morgan, Edwin Thomas, Tom Wilkinson, and Anna Chancellor. This premiered at Sundance and played at Berlinale, but unfortunately it's an awful film, not only forgettable but the kind of film you want to scrub from your memory as soon as it's over. So boring and the filmmaking is very bad. I do not recommend this unless you're a really big Oscar Wilde fan.

One More Time: Netflix's US Trailer for Augmented Reality Film 'Anon'

Anon Trailer

"Who can hack a human being?" One more trailer for the indie sci-fi film Anon, written and directed by sci-fi storyteller Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, S1m0ne, Lord of War, In Time, The Host). We posted another trailer earlier this year, and a new international trailer this week already. This new US trailer from Netflix presents the story entirely differently - about hackers and hacking our augmented reality, and how one of them is getting away with murders by erasing memories. Clive Owen plays a cop investigating a series of unsolved murders, who meets a mysterious hacker woman known as "The Girl" - Amanda Seyfried. This also stars Colm Feore, Sonya Walger, Mark O'Brien, Joe Pingue, Iddo Goldberg, and Sebastian Pigott. This actually looks good, I'm planning to watch once it's available - starting in early May on Netflix.
