Full Trailer for Lake Bell's New Film 'I Do... Until I Don't' with Ed Helms

I Do... Until I Don't Trailer

"Will you accept that marriage is dead?" The Film Arcade has unveiled an official trailer for the new film written/directed by Lake Bell (of the excellent In a World… previously) titled I Do… Until I Don't. The film is an ensemble comedy following three couples "stuck in the web of a jaded filmmaker looking to prove that marriage should be a seven-year contract with an option to renew." Lake Bell stars, along with Ed Helms, Mary Steenburgen, Paul Reiser, Wyatt Cenac, Amber Heard, and Dolly Wells. I've been waiting to see another film directed by Lake Bell, and I'm so happy to have another one out this year! This looks entertaining, if not a bit depressing, but I'm just excited to see Bell directing again. Fire this up below.

First Short Trailer for Indie Sci-Fi 'Axcellerator' Featuring Sean Young

Axcellerator Trailer

"I made something. Something that can change everything, the whole world!" A teaser trailer has debuted for an indie sci-fi film titled Axcellerator, from director David Giancola who runs his own production company out of Vermont. This super low budget thriller is about a car thief / delivery guy who stumbles upon the invention of the century, some kind of device that allows him to teleport, and brings a beautiful checkout clerk with him. Co-starring Ryan Wesen and Laura James, as well as Sean Young, Maxwell Caulfield, Sam J. Jones, John James, David Johnson, and John Romeo. I don't know what's going on in this trailer, but I am intrigued. It reminds me a bit of that Netflix sci-fi film ARQ. Check it out below.

Second Trailer for Safdie Bros' 'Good Time' Starring Robert Pattinson

Good Time Trailer

"Come on, bro!" A24 has debuted the second trailer for the film Good Time, from directors Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie, the brothers behind the films Heaven Knows What and Daddy Longlegs. This crime thriller first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival with mixed reviews, mostly positive. I wasn't the biggest fan (read my review) as the story doesn't have many redeeming values. Robert Pattinson stars as Connie, a wild kid in New York who gets even deeper into the crime world in an effort to get his brother out of jail. Also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi, & Benny Safdie (as Connie's brother). The trailers for this film are good at selling it, I just don't think it's the best film. It has a great score, but that's about it.

Review: Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver' is an Act of Clockwork Precision

Baby Driver Review

The British writer-director behind the "Three Flavours Cornetto" trilogy – consisting of Shaun of the Dead (2004), Hot Fuzz (2007), and The World's End (2013) – and also the director behind 2010's Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Edgar Wright, is known for his unique, kinetic, energetic cinematic style. Unlike most comedy directors working today, Wright finds humor in the filmmaking, utilizing framing, lighting, mise-en-scène, camera movement, editing, and sound to pull as much comedy out of a scene as possible. With his latest film, Baby Driver, Wright has not only improved upon his signature style, but matured with it.

First Trailer for Martin Campbell's 'The Foreigner' Starring Jackie Chan

The Foreigner Trailer

"Never push a good man too far." A trailer has debuted for the action film The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan in a serious role as a man who goes for revenge when the police do nothing to help him. This is the latest film from Martin Campbell, director of GoldenEye, Casino Royale, Edge of Darkness, and Green Lantern; adapted from a book called "The Chinaman". Chan plays a father who tries to get revenge when his daughter is killed in an IRA bombing, leading him right up to the politicians involved. The full cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Charlie Murphy, Katie Leung, Simon Kunz, Rory Fleck Byrne, Pippa Bennett-Warner, Stephen Hogan, and Dermot Crowley. This seems like an quietly intense story of a man who goes to war against everyone when no one else will do anything. Footage looks great, I'm totally in for this.

New Featurette for 'The Dark Tower' on The Legacy of the Gunslinger

The Dark Tower Featurette

"I'm sword to defend the tower, I'll stop at nothing to protect it." Sony has debuted a new featurette for The Dark Tower movie, adapted from Stephen King's book series. Directed by Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel, this cinematic version of the story is more sci-fi than fantasy, about a Gunslinger roaming an Old West-like landscape in pursuit of the man in black. The featurette gives a basic introduction to Idris Elba as the "Gunslinger" Roland Deschain, and his nemesis, Matthew McConaughey as the Man in Black. The full cast includes Abbey Lee, Jackie Earle Haley, Fran Kranz, Tom Taylor, Katheryn Winnick, Alex McGregor, Nicholas Hamilton, Claudia Kim, and Michael Barbieri. There's tons of new footage in this featurette and you know, I actually think it looks damn good. I'm down for some ass kicking gunslingin'.

He Just Wants to Have a Cookout - Trailer for Andre Hyland's 'The 4th'

Andre Hyland's The 4th Trailer

"Aw, sorry about your bike!" Gravitas Ventures has unveiled an official trailer for an indie comedy titled The 4th, which actually premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year (not this year). The 4th is the feature directorial debut of a comedian/actor named Andre Hyland, who takes us on a wacky trip through Los Angeles. Hyland also stars as the main character, Jamie. The story is simple - a scruffy dude in LA tries to throw a cookout for his friends during 4th of July. But on his way to the store, he gets into an accident and everything goes nuts, throwing his whole life into disarray. Co-starring Anna Lee Lawson, Yasmine Kittles, Dugan O'Neal, and Jeff Carpenter. This doesn't look that good, but maybe it's just the trailer.

Looking Back: 'Spider-Man 2' is Still One of the Best Comic Book Movies

Spider-Man 2

When it comes to sequels, there an expectation to raise the bar. If you think of some of the best sequels of all time, whether that's The Empire Strikes Back, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan or Aliens (to name a few), each film improved upon the foundation of the first in major ways. In the second part of our weekly Spider-Man retrospective series leading up to the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7th this summer, we take a look at how Sam Raimi raised the bar for not only Spider-Man movies, but the entire superhero genre itself with Spider-Man 2. The superhero sequel hit theaters on June 30th, 2004 (that's 13 years ago!), just a week before 4th of July, and it once again went on to set records at the box office and beyond.

Teaser Trailer for 'The Incredible Jessica James' with Jessica Williams

The Incredible Jessica James Teaser

Have You Met the Incredible Jessica James? Netflix has debuted the first teaser trailer for The Incredible Jessica James, the latest film from talented indie filmmaker Jim Strouse (of Grace Is Gone, The Winning Season, People Places Things - all three are great films). This upbeat indie comedy stars Jessica Williams from "The Daily Show" in a major breakout role as Jessica James, an aspiring playwright living in New York City struggling with the dating scene and the career scene. She meets a goofball guy that she slowly starts to fall for, played by Chris O'Dowd (not seen in this teaser). Also starring Lakeith Stanfield, Noël Wells, Megan Ketch, and Zabryna Guevara. I saw this at Sundance and it's wonderful, providing some much-needed optimism along with an outstanding performance from Williams. Don't miss this one, it's so good.
