Official UK Trailer for German Comedy Film 'My Blind Date with Life'

My Blind Date with Life Trailer

"Let me prove to you that I can do it." Studiocanal UK has debuted the official UK trailer for a Germany comedy film titled My Blind Date with Life, or originally Mein Blind Date mit dem Leben in German. The film tells the true story of a student who nearly became blind as a teenager. He keeps his limited eye sight a secret and starts working at a hotel in Munich, soon falling in love with a woman. Kostja Ullmann stars as the lead character Saliya Kahawatte, with a cast including Anna Maria Mühe, Nilam Farooq, Sylvana Krappatsch, Ludger Pistor, Johann von Bülow, and Herbert Forthuber. This looks like a very cheesy German romantic comedy, but there's a heartwarming story behind it all. That said, this doesn't seem like it will be good. At least you can get a glimpse at what campy German comedies are like - have fun.

Watch: 'Kinderfänger' - Genuinely Scary Pied Piper Horror Short Film

Kinderfänger Short Film

"Following the music leads to death…" Whoa! Looking for something to really, truly scare you? Watch this. Kinderfänger is a horror short film from director Christopher Alender, that premiered on Crypt TV's YouTube series of horror shorts this month. The title Kinderfänger roughly translates to "child snatcher", which makes this all the more scary when you see what happens in it. There are a few big twists, and some crazy horrific moments that you won't see coming. But damn this is some slick, minimal filmmaking. The Kinderfänger villain is freaky as hell, one of the scariest horror creatures I've seen in a while. So, watch out.

I Remember You Trailer

"It's impossible that this is a coincidence." IFC Films has debuted an official US trailer for a horror thriller titled I Remember You from Iceland, about a young man and woman who move into a small abandoned town in Iceland to renovate an old house. Of course, this house has a dark past and things start to happen once they arrive. While this trailer is appropriately timed for the horror season this October, the film doesn't actually open until mid-November in America. This stars a fine set of Icelandic actors: Jóhannes Haukur Jóhannesson, Thor Kristjansson, Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir & Anna Gunndís Guðmundsdóttir. This looks like another good dark, freaky supernatural thriller with an Icelandic twist. Check it out below.

How 'Blade Runner 2049' is Both a Perfect Sequel & Singular Creation

Blade Runner 2049

"Sometimes to love someone… you have to be a stranger." Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 is a unique creation. It comes 35 years after Ridley Scott's original masterpiece, which is a cult classic that was almost unanimously rejected at its original release by both audiences and critics. It's a sequel to a moody, atmospheric science fiction film being advertised as an event blockbuster. While Blade Runner 2049 is not an action film, it definitely should be viewed as an event. While mainstream audiences may not be swarming in large masses to see the film, there is no question to the film's majesty and beauty. Let's take a closer look at why Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049 is the perfect sequel and a singular creation in its own right.

Remembering 'The Dana Carvey Show' in 'Too Funny to Fail' Doc Trailer

Too Funny to Fail Doc Trailer

"We had hired badass nerd pirates to blow up the system." Hulu has debuted a trailer for a documentary titled Too Funny to Fail, looking back at the short-lived comedy show "The Dana Carvey Show". Does anyone remember this show? Dana Carvey's "The Dana Carvey Show" launched in spring of 1996 and only lasted 7 episodes before it was cancelled. This doc examines how it all happened, how it came together, and how it all went wrong. It features Carvey and former Carvey Show cast members/writers Stephen Colbert, Robert Smigel, Steve Carell, Louis C.K., Charlie Kaufman, Jon Glaser, and more in a look back at why the ABC sketch show would "crash and burn so spectacularly." The show had such an amazing set of writers and comedians, it's fascinating to examine its failure. Hulu also has all the episodes available for you to watch.

LFF Review: Paddy Considine's 'Journeyman' is an Emotional Journey

Journeyman Review

This is not a boxing film. Though it is about a boxer, and involves a major boxing match, it is not a boxing film. Journeyman, the latest feature written and directed by English actor Paddy Considine, is actually a heartwrenching drama about the struggle of those with mental disabilities. Considine plays every role - he writes, directs, and stars in this film as Matty Burton, a famed boxer who decides to go for one last match with a wise-mouth up-and-comer. This film is really not about how the match turns out, that doesn't really even matter, and while we do get to watch the match, it is what comes after that matters. That's what this film is actually about, and it is an impressive, emotional journey through one man's struggle to stay himself.

Taraji P. Henson in First Trailer for Tyler Perry's Next Drama 'Acrimony'

Acrimony Trailer

"So, do you think you have an anger problem?" Lionsgate has revealed the first trailer for Tyler Perry's next drama, an infidelity thriller starring Taraji P. Henson called Acrimony. The word acrimony is actually a noun meaning "bitterness or ill feeling." It connects to the plot here, because Henson plays a woman tired of standing by her husband who continues to lie and cheat on her. Lyriq Bent plays her husband, with a cast including Danielle Nicolet, Jazmyn Simon, Tika Sumpter, Jason Vail, and Ptosha Storey. The film seems to be told through flashbacks, with Henson retelling her story of how she first met him and all the abuse she has quietly received over the years, before turning vicious and vengeful. This doesn't look so bad.

David Arquette & Amy Acker in 'Amanda & Jack Go Glamping' Trailer

Amanda & Jack Go Glamping Trailer

Gravitas has debuted the trailer for an indie titled Amanda & Jack Go Glamping, which is playing at the Austin Film Festival this month. For those who don't know, the word "glamping" is an amalgamation of "glamorous camping", essentially describing luxurious camping in which you go stay in fancy places - in this case, a "yurt". David Arquette and Amy Acker stars as a married couple who decided to go "glamping" in hopes of reigniting their spark for each other. Of course, things get weird and crazy, and yeah you know how these films go. This also stars Adan Canto, Nicole Elliott, Daniel Ross Owens, Chris Carpenter, Gustavo Gomez, and June Squibb. It's not really my kind of indie comedy, but it might be up your alley.

Final Trailer for Stephen Chbosky's 'Wonder' Starring Jacob Tremblay

Wonder Trailer

"We all deserve a standing ovation at least once in our lives." Lionsgate has revealed the third and final official trailer for the film Wonder, adapted from R.J. Palacio's book of the same name. There have already been two previous trailers released, so why not one more to push this film. Wonder stars acclaimed young actor Jacob Tremblay (seen in Room, Before I Wake, The Book of Henry), who plays Auggie, a kid with an awkward facial difference who decides to go to public school despite being made fun of. He makes a few new friends who help him learn to be himself. The full cast includes Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as Auggie's parents, and also featuring Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin, Sonia Braga, Izabela Vidovic, Ali Liebert, and Bryce Gheisar. This looks charming and inspiring, which is pretty much the point, that we all should learn to look past these little differences and appreciate everyone for who they are deep down.

Official Trailer for Superb 'Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond' Documentary

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond Doc Trailer

"I couldn't remember who I was anymore… So you step through the door not knowing what's on the other side." Netflix has debuted the official trailer for a superb documentary titled Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond, which is all about the performance Jim Carrey gave as comedian Andy Kaufman in the film Man on the Moon. This documentary dives deep into Carrey's mind, examining how and why everything happened back in 1999 while making the film. They filmed over 100 hours of footage, which was never seen until now, giving us a very impressive look at exactly what Carrey was like. He "became" Andy for months, responding only to the name Andy and pretending that Jim was completely gone from Earth for that time. I saw this doc at the Venice Film Festival and loved it (here's my review), because it goes beyond just being a behind-the-scenes film to become profound as a profile on truth and comedy. It's definitely worth your time.

First Teaser Trailer for Festival Hit 'I, Tonya' Starring Margot Robbie

I, Tonya Teaser Trailer

"America: they want someone to love, they want someone to hate." Neon has revealed a short teaser trailer for the indie dark comedy I, Tonya, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival to lots of rave reviews. I, Tonya, the latest from director Craig Gillespie, tells a fictionalized version of the true story of figure skater Tonya Harding, who planned an attack on her rival Nancy Kerrigan after a practice session at the 1994 U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Detroit. Margot Robbie stars as Tonya Harding, with a cast including Sebastian Stan, Allison Janney, Paul Walter Hauser, Julianne Nicholson, Bobby Cannavale, Mckenna Grace, plus Caitlin Carver as Nancy Kerrigan. Based on all the buzz from TIFF and this first look, I am crazy excited to see this film. Sounds like it's dark and devious and enjoyable in all the right ways.
