After playing at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, the tribal martial arts flick The Dead Lands is headed to theaters this spring, and it just might put New Zealand on the map when it comes to action. The film features the traditional (and terrifying) Maori martial art of armed combat known as Mau rakau, making the film full of genuine culture as it's set in pre-colonial New Zealand. We got a glimpse of the film last year when it hit TIFF, and now a red band trailer has just surfaced to show off how brutal this flick can be. Between this and What We Do in the Shadows, there's good stuff coming out of New Zealand.

"Put the money on the ground, and then get in your car, and fuck off." While we're used to seeing Simon Pegg get a little bloody in the likes of Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, this time things are a little more serious. In Kill Me Three Times, the British actor plays an assassin hired to kill a rich man's wife. But soon some more people end up getting in the way, each with their own desires for money and survival. It's more thriller than comedy, but there seems to be some dark laughs in store. Teresa Palmer, Alice Braga and more star in the film, and now a red band trailer is here with plenty of f-bombs to go around. Watch!

Even though we've seen plenty of footage from Maps to the Stars, thanks to the Canadian trailer, the United Kingdom trailer and most recent US trailer (just to name a few), we have one more quick, wild red band trailer for the skewering of Hollywood as only director David Cronenberg can deliver. It's not all that crazy of a red band trailer, with only hints of nudity and one f-bomb dropped by Mia Wasikowska, but it's certainly frenetic and full of some weird imagery, including one curious shot of Robert Pattinson. But it's Oscar nominee Julianne Moore stealing the trailer with her crazy actress character again. Watch!

If the first red band trailer or raunchy version of the Super Bowl spot didn't convince you to see the new comedy Unfinished Business next month, 20th Century Fox is making one last attempt to get you on board. The final red band trailer has just arrived for the film starring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco, and it brings some more raunchiness to the table. While I don't think this looks flat out terrible, it doesn't seem to offer up anything we haven't see before comedically with the exception of Franco's character being on the autism spectrum (though I don't buy his performance yet). Watch below!

"Our art is a reflection of our reality." Complete with a minute-long intro featuring the real life Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, founding members of the influential rap group N.W.A., the first red band trailer for the film chronicling the rise of the hip-hop giant has arrived. Straight Outta Compton follows this group of young boys from the hood who decided to use their words as a form of protest and to shine a light on their world. But what comes with that is a cultural war about race and class. This feels like it might be a little cliche as far as hindsight and dramatization is concerned with the rap group, but it doesn't look bad. Watch!

Even though the Super Bowl is mostly big of debut TV spots for films that are still months away, movie studios also have to push the films that are hitting theaters sooner than later. That's why we're here with a Super Bowl spot for the comedy Unfinished Business starring Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson. In addition to the tame TV spot, there's an extended red band trailer for the film. Can't say that I'm all that excited to see this, but I can appreciate the use of The Lonely Island's comedic track "Like a Boss" being used in the advertising. Though that video and song seem to be funnier than this movie. Watch!

The dust has settled on the controversial release of The Interview, but if you haven't been able to see the film in its limited theatrical engagement or for some reason couldn't watch the Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg comedy on YouTube, Google Play, Xbox or Sony's website to stream the film, you'll have even more options to watch it. Beginning today, Deadline reports a slew of cable, satellite and telecom providers will be offering The Interview for rental on VOD for $5.99, which is how much it costs to stream everywhere else. And if you still need to be convinced to see the movie, one final red band trailer has arrived too. Watch!

The found footage horror franchise [REC] began back in 2007, and it's still going strong, at least overseas, with the fourth installment [REC] 4: Apocalypse. After wreaking havoc on a wedding in the last film, this one takes the action to an oil tanker, and also brings back Manuela Velasco as the young television reporter who was stuck in the quarantined building from the original film. After making it out alive, they've isolated her on this boat, but that may not be enough to contain the virus. This is a red band trailer with lots of blood and gore, so it's probably not best to fire it up around kids or at the dinner table. Watch it below!

"I look like I give a fuck?" There's a part of me that's worried that Kingsman: The Secret Service is going to bomb when it hits theaters in February next year, but the latest red band trailer shows off a fun spy flick that looks so crazy that it just might work. Samuel L. Jackson is doing his best impression of himself as a James Bond villain with a lisp, Mark Strong is having some fun and Colin Firth looks like a real ass-kicker. And if this trailer is any indicator, newcomer Taron Egerton may have a bright future as a young big screen star. And don't forget, Mark Hamill has a bit part in this movie too. Watch below now!

Coming up this weekend, Chris Rock's latest writing and directorial effort hits limited theaters in the form of Top Five. The film has gotten some solid buzz after premiering at TIFF earlier this year, and it's only been helped by the sheer amount of comic talent involved. Now to help push the film even more, an extended red band trailer for the film has arrived that show's some of Rock doing stand-up as big time comedian Andre Allen. Everyone looks to be hilarious in this movie, with Cedric the Entertainer being the funniest he's been in years. Looks like a nice break from blockbusters and heavy awards dramas. Watch!

In case you didn't know, Vince Vaughn is officially part of the cast of "True Detective" for the anthology show's second season next year. But for those of you who prefer the fast-talking actor in comedy roles, you still get what you want too. Unfinished Business is an R-rated comedy that sees Vaughn playing a businessman who heads overseas to land a big deal, but he doesn't have the best comrades on his endeavor with Dave Franco and Tom Wilkinson at his side. Plus, there's James Marsden and Sienna Miller as a competing duo going after the same deal. It looks a little better than what we've seen Vaughn deliver lately in the comedy world, especially with this supporting cast, and the red band trailer is pretty raunchy. Watch!

"This is so fucked up on so many levels." That quote from the latest red band trailer for the comedy The Wedding Ringer is exactly what I'm thinking when it comes to the kind of critical acclaim on display. Along with a whole slew of profanity (some of it seems a little excessive), there's also dozens of tweets from presumably real people who saw preview screenings of the comedy and called it "dope as fuck" and "frikkin hilarious." Yes, I can see what the marketing department is going for, but shouldn't the jokes just sell themselves in the trailer? Honestly, I didn't know this movie was going to be R-rated, and that means I'm a little more interested in this flick with Josh Gad and (*sigh*) Kevin Hart but not entirely sold. Watch!

When it comes to conventional horror thrillers in theaters this Halloween, there's not much to choose from (our own Jeremy K. Kirk says Ouija isn't very good at all), but Jake Gyllenhaal and his latest film Nightcrawler looks like it might offer a nice alternative to the usual slashers and supernatural terror. Gyllenhaal plays an aspiring crime journalist who decides to do whatever it takes to get his stories on the nightly news, even if that means staging an accident scene or filming a grisly murder. But his career path as a "nightcrawler" just might cost him his sanity and his life. This new red band trailer shows off just how twisted and crazy this movie is going to be, and it looks like a great trip to the movie theater on Halloween.

"A wise man's life is based around 'fuck you.'" After some first look photos surfaced earlier this month, we finally get a better look at the last minute awards contender The Gambler from Rise of the Planet of the Apes director Rupert Wyatt. A red band trailer for the film starring Mark Wahlberg has arrived, and it has one hell of a profanity-ridden monologue from John Goodman that gets us really excited to see this flick. Wahlberg plays an English professor and a high-stakes gambler who bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael K. Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. But things don't go so well. Watch!
