Michael Abbott Jr in Official Trailer for Indie Film 'In the Radiant City'

In the Radiant City Trailer

"There's no such thing as evil, son. There's just people doing good and bad to each other." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for indie drama In the Radiant City, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film is the feature directorial debut of Kentucky native Rachel Lambert, and it's set in Kentucky, about a man who returns home only to find his family is still haunted by the stigma of a murder his brother committed years ago. The cast includes Michael Abbott Jr in the lead role, along with Marin Ireland, Madisen Beaty, Celia Weston, Jon Michael Hill, Deirdre O'Connell, and Paul Sparks. This film is produced by fellow filmmaker Jeff Nichols, and it also has one of the best posters this year (as seen below).

Official Trailer for Eliza Hittman's Drama 'Beach Rats' Set in Brooklyn

Beach Rats Trailer

"I don't really know what I like…" Neon has unveiled the official full-length trailer for indie drama Beach Rats, the second feature from filmmaker Eliza Hittman, following up her debut It Felt Like Love. This originally premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January, where it won the Best Director award. Newcomer Harris Dickinson plays Frankie, an aimless youth on the outer edges of Brooklyn, struggling to escape his bleak home life. He spends his summer balancing time between his delinquent group of friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online. The cast includes Nicole Flyus, Frank Hakaj, Kate Hodge and Neal Huff. Despite some good reviews, this looks like pretentious art house drivel to me.

Disney + Marvel have revealed the new full-length trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the next sequel in the Thor series, at Comic-Con today during their Hall H presentation.

Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a seriously kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from Asgard before including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander. I'm insanely excited for this, it looks so frickin' good, even all the sci-fi stuff looks like it works perfectly. I'm so there opening night. Between this and Black Panther, Marvel is lookin' really good.

Awesome New Comic-Con Trailer for DC's Epic 'Justice League' Movie

Justice League Comic-Con

"They said the age of heroes would never come again." "It has to." Warner Bros has revealed a new Comic-Con trailer for DC's Justice League, and it looks totally awesome, packed with action and plenty more. Justice League is the continuation of the Batman v Superman series in the DC Extended Universe, bringing together five super-powered beings: Ben Affleck as Batman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, and Ray Fisher as Cyborg. The extensive cast also includes Willem Dafoe, Jeremy Irons, Amber Heard, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. As we all know, Joss Whedon has taken over finishing the movie since Zack Snyder had to step down for family tragedy reasons. As usual, there's some epicly cool shots in this worth admiring on their own. The line from Alfred about wind-up penguins is great, too. They've got my attention. Dive in.

Watch: Teaser Trailer for Steven Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Movie

Ready Player One Teaser Trailer

"There's nowhere left to go… Nowhere, except the Oasis." Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg's adaptation of Ready Player One, the geeky novel about a kid in the future who logs into a virtual reality world and plays games to win the ultimate prize. I'm so excited to finally see something from this, and I still can't believe Spielberg is actually directing. Young actor Tye Sheridan stars as Wade Watts, known in the gaming world as Parzival. The cast includes Mark Rylance as the game's creator, James Halliday, as well as T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Letitia Wright, and Kae Alexander. There's some great references to The Iron Giant, Back to the Future, and E.T. of course, and this is only just the first tease. Dang I'm hyped for this!! Very excited to see more.

Review: Nolan's 'Dunkirk' is as Riveting as it is Groundbreaking

Dunkirk Review

When it comes to telling a story about war, the filmmaking game has been hitting many of the same strides for a couple of decades now. Ever since 1998's Saving Private Ryan and the opening scene set on Omaha Beach, war movies, especially those set during World War II, have been satisfied retreading that same water, rolling with similar tides, giving us much of what we've already seen before. It takes a true craftsman in the game to deliver something fresh but still maintain a sense of scope, compassion, and intensity. That craftsman, apparently, is Christopher Nolan, who has been reshaping genres and defying expectations since his 2000 thriller, Memento, floored audiences with its disjointed structure. Nolan is the craftsman, and Dunkirk, a WWII movie unlike any seen or experienced before, is the stunning result of his craft.

New Comic-Con Trailer + Poster for WAG's 'The LEGO Ninjago Movie'

The LEGO Ninjago Movie Trailer

"A true ninja knows when to fight, and when to blend in the shadows." With Comic-Con underway, Warner Bros has debuted another new trailer for The LEGO Ninjago Movie at the comic book convention in San Diego. This latest LEGO Movie from Warner Animation Group, arriving in theaters this fall, tells the story of six young ninjas who must go back to their ninjas root to defend their island called Ninjago. Jackie Chan voices Sensei Wu, their master and ninja teacher. The rest of the main voice cast includes Olivia Munn, Dave Franco, Michael Peña, Abbi Jacobson, Zach Woods, Kumail Nanjiani, Fred Armisen, and Justin Theroux as the evil Garmadon. This looks as good as the previous two LEGO movies, with as much humor and action and wacky, fun quirks thrown in - like the cat at the end of the trailer. I'm down for this.

Comic-Con 2017: Photos from WB's 'Blade Runner 2049' Experience

Blade Runner 2049 Experience

"The key to the future is finally unearthed. Bring it to me." We're only a few months from experiencing Blade Runner 2049 on the big screen, but Warner Bros has already invited us into the future at Comic-Con this year. Remember the incredible Tron Legacy experience at Comic-Con years ago, featuring a full-sized Flynn's Aracde built inside a warehouse downtown? Well, Warner Bros has topped that with a massive off-site experience at Comic-Con this year for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 and it's one of the best things that has ever come to Comic-Con. It begins with a look at concept art, continues with a VR experience in one of the flying cars, then takes us directly to the streets of the future. Take a look at our photos below.

Full Trailer for Tribal Battle Action Film 'The Veil' Starring William Levy

The Veil Movie Trailer

"When I was young, I fought to survive. But with time, everything changed…" Vertical Entertainment has debuted a trailer for an action film titled The Veil, set in a "war-torn land where tribal factions live in fear of annihilation." Cuban actor William Levy stars as a deadly warrior who is betrayed and left for dead by his own tribe. He is healed by a mysterious princess and taken in by a secret tribe, only to go back and wage war against his own people. This seems like one of those cliche "tribal battle" movies that doesn't have much to offer. The cast includes Serinda Swan, William Moseley, Nick Tarabay, Adam Gregory, and Billy Blair. I don't feel like anyone actually watches these kind of action movies anymore, but what do I know?

Review: Luc Besson's 'Valerian' Wastes Visual Splendor on So-So Storytelling

Valerian Review

Written and directed by Luc Besson (of Léon: The Professional, La Femme Nikita, and Lucy), Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is based on the Valérian and Laureline graphic novel series by writer Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières. First published in 1967 in the French comics magazine, Pilote, the seminal science fiction series paved the way for Heavy Metal, and informed George Lucas' Star Wars and Besson's 1997 film, The Fifth Element, for which Mézières contributed concept art. The live-action adaptation, independently crowd-sourced and personally funded by Besson, is supposedly now the most expensive independent film ever made, but does it live up to its influential source material?

Trailer for World Trade Center Drama '9/11' Directed by Martin Guigui

9/11 Movie Trailer

"I need you to try to get the hell out of that elevator." Atlas Distribution has premiered a trailer for a new drama titled 9/11, telling the story of five people trapped inside an elevator in the World Trade Center's North Tower on 9/11. They work together, never giving up hope, to try and find a way out safely. It's only been 16 years, but I guess we've reached a point where movies can literally use the 9/11 date as their title when telling a story centered around this horrific moment. The ensemble cast of this film includes Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Luis Guzman, Gina Gershon, Wood Harris, Jacqueline Bisset, Olga Fonda and Bruce Davison. It's directed by Martin Guigui, the same guy who made the unofficial Raging Bull sequel The Bronx Bull. The final shot in this trailer is totally crazy, and potentially a spoiler? Watch out.

Tony Jaa + Iko Uwais in Teaser Trailer for Action Movie 'Triple Threat'

Triple Threat Teaser Trailer

"We find them, we kill them, no messin' about." Well Go USA has debuted a brief teaser trailer for the new action film Triple Threat, from stuntman-turned-director Jesse V. Johnson, who also has the film Savage Dogs being released this year. Triple Threat features one hell of a kick ass cast - mainly action superstars Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais teaming up, along with more action stars: Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins, Celina Jade, Michael Bisping, Selina Lo, JeeJa Yanin, Ron Smoorenburg, and Tiger Hu Chen. Not that the plot matters much with this cast, but it's about a team of mercenaries who must take on a group of professional assassins and stop them before they kill an important woman. This looks like it'll be badass.
