Deadpool isn’t like any Marvel movie before. True, if you break them down, the same could be said for all the movies that make up the current subgenre of superhero films. Though the basic structures all resemble one another, the sheer number of new entries flooding theaters allows the fimmakers behind them to play around in different, cinematic territories. Captain America has become the paranoid thriller. Guardians of the Galaxy is the space opera. Deadpool nestles its way into a subgenre taking on all the characteristics. It’s the filthy, R-rated superhero movie comedy. Though it never reaches the height of vulgarity or subversion it intends, Deadpool offers an abundance of crude humor, edgy self-referentiality, and a huge amount of fun.
"How far will he go?" Sony Pictures has released another new red band trailer for Louis Leterrier's The Brothers Grimsby, featuring even more crazy footage from this upcoming comedy starring Mark Strong and Sacha Baron Cohen as brothers that must team up to stay alive. We've seen a whole bunch of trailers for this over the last few months, including two full-length trailers already, so why not one more. The full cast includes Penélope Cruz, Isla Fisher, Rebel Wilson, and Scott Adkins. I'm enjoying whatever they keep showing us from this, hoping it's as funny as it looks. Sacha Baron Cohen looks to be doing some of his best character comedy work since Bruno and Borat. And I always enjoy seeing Mark Strong. Have fun.
"I'm so glad you're here! We've got a lot to talk about… So much to celebrate tonight." Drafthouse Films has unveiled a new trailer for Karyn Kusama's creepy horror-thriller The Invitation, about a dinner party that isn't exactly what it seems. The cast includes Michiel Huisman, John Carroll Lynch, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Tammy Blanchard, Mike Doyle and Lindsay Burdge. Following up the first teaser, this trailer finally gives us more of a look at what's waiting these guests of the party. "Don't tell me that this is normal!" There's some really eerie, unsettling stuff going on and the reviews seem to indicate it's wild. Rob Hunter from FSR says: "In addition to being a suspenseful and well-acted ride the film also looks fantastic."
"What are you gunna do - be the hero who defeats the Mirror, and saves the entire kingdom?" Universal has debuted the second official trailer for The Huntsman Winter's War, the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman from 2012. This live-action fantasy fairy tale gone mad stars Chris Hemsworth as The Huntsman, a man stuck in the middle of a battle between a Queen and her sister Freya, played by Emily Blunt. This big budget studio sequel also stars Jessica Chastain as Sara, Charlize Theron as Ravenna, Sam Claflin as William, plus Colin Morgan, Sophie Cookson, Nick Frost and many others. This looks as bland as the first trailer (or the first film for that matter), but that's just me. "Are you ready, Huntsman?"
We've been waiting to see something for this one! Roadside Attractions is releasing Tom Tykwer's new film A Hologram for the King and has set an April release date. But we still have yet to see a trailer or much else. The film has been scheduled for release on April 22nd, and along with that news a batch of first look photos (and a new German poster for now) have been unveiled. A Hologram for the King stars Tom Hanks as a failed American businessman who flies to Saudi Arabia to try and sell his idea to a wealthy monarch, based on the book by Dave Eggers. Sounds good. We'll be keeping an eye on this one leading up to release.
"I can't get involved." "I'm afraid you are involved." Studiocanal UK has debuted a trailer for the spy thriller Our Kind of Traitor, an adaptation of another John le Carré novel (other recent adaptations include Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and A Most Wanted Man) about spies and secrets. Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris stars as a couple drawn into a dangerous game of international espionage, caught between Stellan Skarsgard playing a mysterious money-launder, the Russian mafia, the British government, and Damian Lewis as a ruthless MI6 agent. This looks good, not great, though it's tough to pass up that cast.
"This is an extreme environment. People with actual experience make bad decisions here." Paramount has debuted another new trailer for Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, the comedy from Glenn Ficarra & John Requa starring Tina Fey as a TV reporter sent to do coverage in Afghanistan and Pakistan for her first time. It's a good story to tell, and they try to have fun with it, but sometimes the jokes in this fall flat and it doesn't look that good, but other times it looks solid. This also stars Margot Robbie, Billy Bob Thornton, Martin Freeman, Nicholas Braun, Josh Charles, Alfred Molina, plus Christopher Abbott. This trailer is slightly better than the first one, but it still doesn't really show too much. Opening in theaters next month.
"Will you risk everything to feel something?" A24 has unveiled a teaser trailer for the new sci-fi romantic drama from Drake Doremus called Equals, which played at the TIFF and Venice Film Festivals last year. The film is set in a futuristic society where crime and violence have been eradicated through the genetic elimination of human emotion, and where those afflicted with the emotional "disease" are forced to go on the run. Sounds a bit like Logan's Run or any futuristic story like this, but with a much stronger romantic angle. Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult star, with Guy Pearce, Bel Powley, Kate Lyn Sheil and Jacki Weaver. This footage looks good, but it also really makes me want to watch Her again. Take a look.
"Even you got too old to die young. Not for lack of trying…" It's here! Warner Bros has unleashed the final trailer for Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, our introduction to the Justice League and an epic showdown between Bats and Supes. Metropolis v Gotham. Who will win…? What is the world going to look like at the end of this? Ben Affleck stars as Batman, Henry Cavill stars as Superman, Gal Gadot stars as Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg stars as Lex Luthor, and the full cast has Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and many others. There are no other major reveals in this footage, but it does look badass overall, with some very dark and gritty fights. Can't wait to see this!
"You're capable of more than you think!" This looks so awesome!! STX Entertainment has unveiled a new trailer for Ilya Naishuller's Hardcore Henry, originally titled just Hardcore, which played to rave reviews at midnight at TIFF last year (read Marco's review). The POV action film stars you, as Henry, suddenly waking up in the middle of crazy situation that turns into a gunfight. From there they go all out with cars and explosions and grenades and more. Featuring Haley Bennett, Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky and Cyrus Arnold. For more info, visit the official website. This looks totally, insanely awesome in the best way possible, unbelievable action that makes you go "wow". Looking forward to seeing this when it opens.
"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.
"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.
