Amusing Second Trailer for Tennis Showdown Film 'Battle of the Sexes'

Battle of the Sexes

"There's not a single thing I don't hate about Bobby Riggs." Fox Searchlight UK has revealed a new trailer for the indie sports comedy Battle of the Sexes, from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks. Set in the 1970s, the comedy profiles the true story of a wacky tennis match between Emma Stone as tennis champ Billie Jean King, and Steve Carell as chauvinist Bobby Riggs. The match earned attention as a true "battle of the sexes", but there seems to be more going on than just tennis. The full cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Natalie Morales, Alan Cumming, Eric Christian Olsen, Sarah Silverman, and Martha MacIsaac. This seems very funny and fun to watch, looking forward to it.

Teaser Trailer for Icelandic Horror Film 'Rift' Set at a Secluded Cabin

Rift

"Someone is here with me." A short teaser trailer has debuted for an Icelandic LGBT horror film titled Rift, made by horror filmmaker Erlingur Thoroddsen. The story is about a guy named Gunnar who receives a mysterious call from his ex-boyfriend, who is living in a secluded cabin. He goes out there to find out what's going on, only to discover there's some weird things happening and something haunting them outside the cabin that wants to get in. Starring Björn Stefánsson, Sigurður Þór Óskarsson, and Guðmundur Ólafsson. The film already premiered at the Göteborg Film Festival earlier this year, and is playing at a few other festivals this summer as well, including OutFest in July. This actually looks pretty good, I'm curious.

Haley Lu Richardson in First Trailer for Outstanding Film 'Columbus'

Columbus Trailer

"Suddenly the place I'd lived my whole life felt different." A trailer has finally arrived for one of the best films from the Sundance Film Festival this year. Columbus is the feature directorial debut of a filmmaker known as "Kogonada", a Korean cinephile who previously made video essays that achieved quite a bit of acclaim online. Columbus stars Haley Lu Richardson as a young woman from the town of Columbus, Indiana, a small place known for its remarkable and innovative architecture (and it's all actually real). Her story intertwines with a Korean man played by John Cho who visits because his father, an architect, is in a coma. The cast also includes Parker Posey, Erin Allegretti, Rory Culkin, and Jim Dougherty. We published a glowing review of this from Sundance, and it's definitely worth your time to discover. See below.

Person to Person Trailer

"Terrible things happen every day in this city." Magnolia Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for an ensemble indie drama titled Person to Person, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film follows different characters "from person to person" in New York City, handing off the narrative to each one as it continues on. The full cast of quirky characters includes Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Tavi Gevinson, Isiah Whitlock, Michaela Watkins, Olivia Lucciardi, Ben Rosenfield, Buddy Durress, Bene Coopersmith, George Sample III, and Philip Baker Hall. This looks like a nice slice of life in New York City, showing the mix of people and all the interesting things going on. Enjoy.

First Trailer for David Gordon Green's Boston Bombing Film 'Stronger'

Stronger Trailer

"You showed the world that they can't break us no matter what the hell they do." Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, about a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 who helped the police track down the killers. This is the second Boston Marathon bombing movie, the fist one Patriots Day opened last winter, while Lionsgate is waiting until this fall to release this one. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bombing. The cast includes Tatiana Maslany as his wife Erin Hurley, plus Clancy Brown, Miranda Richardson, and Frankie Shaw. This actually looks a bit better than Patriots Day, mostly because it's more personal and emotional, and I trust in DGG.

Uncut 35mm Print of Argento's 'Suspiria' Found - Touring This Year

Suspiria

"Do you know anything about witches?" This is great news for fans of classic horror. There's a brand new remake of Dario Argento's 1977 stylish horror film Suspiria due to arrive later this year, from director Luca Guadagnino (of A Bigger Splash, Call Me by Your Name). But before that arrives, lucky cinephiles will have the chance to revisit the original film as a pristine 35mm print of an uncut version of the film was found by the Chicago Cinema Society. "The print was rescued from an Italian cinema that had closed down and the print had gone untouched in their storage area since 1977/78." Even more exciting, the print will be touring around the country as a restored version show in select cinemas through this year. Full list of cities below.

Chadwick Boseman as Thurgood Marshall in First Trailer for 'Marshall'

Marshall Trailer

"If you want freedom, you're going to have to fight for it." Open Road Films has released the first official trailer for a film titled Marshall, telling the fascinating and inspiring story of the first African American Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. Chadwick Boseman, who also plays Black Panther, stars as Thurgood Marshall in this compelling drama about Marshall when he was a "young rabble-rousing" attorney for the NAACP during the 1940s and 1950s. The full cast in the film includes Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell. This looks like a rousing, inspiring story of a determined, intelligent man fighting against racism and society to stand for justice above all. Might be good.

Official Trailer for Cliché Action Movie 'Cartels' Starring Steven Seagal

Cartels Trailer

"Who the hell are you?" "I'm the guy you shoulda called when you went sideways." Lionsgate has dropped a trailer for yet another new Steven Seagal action movie, and it looks as terrible as his last one. The trailer is for a film called Cartels, formerly known as Killing Salazar. It's made by the same director who has made all of Seagal's recent movies, including Contract to Kill, which we featured a trailer for last year (did anyone actually watch it?). Cartels has some super cheesy, twisty plot involving a drug lord being captured, the DEA, and Seagal being Seagal. Also starring Georges St. Pierre, Martine Argent, Darren E. Scott, Massimo Dobrovic, and Luke Goss. I honestly don't even know why I bother with trailers for films like this, I'm never going to watch it, and I hope no one else will want to either. Move along, nothing to see here.

New Featurette for 'Blade Runner 2049' Takes Us Behind-the-Scenes

Blade Runner 2049 Featurette

"The story. The themes. The stunning visual environments. It was a pleasure getting back to the world of Blade Runner again." Warner Bros has unveiled a behind-the-scenes featurette for Blade Runner 2049, the sci-fi sequel directed by Denis Villeneuve. This is easily one of our most anticipated, and the more they show us, the better it looks. Holy crap. This direct sequel takes place 30 years after the original story, and stars Ryan Gosling as the new LAPD Officer who must find Deckard, who has been missing all this time. Harrison Ford returns to play Deckard, and the new cast of 2049 also includes Ana de Armas, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, Mackenzie Davis, Robin Wright, Barkhad Abdi, Lennie James, and David Dastmalchian. All the footage in this looks stunning, and I love that everyone in this video talks about how daunting and impressive every aspect of it is. I'm so happy this movie looks this amazing. Cannot wait.

New US Trailer for 'From the Land of the Moon' with Marion Cotillard

From the Land of the Moon Trailer

"I am planted within you. I am alone with you." IFC Films has debuted an official US trailer for the French drama From the Land of the Moon, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year (not this year). This romantic story from filmmaker Nicole Garcia stars Marion Cotillard as a French woman from a small village in the South of France who falls in love with a man she meets in the Alps. Set right at the end of World War II, she is married to a man she doesn't really love, only to find the man she really loves when she goes to a clinic in the mountains to heal her kidney stones. The full cast includes Louis Garrel, Alex Brendemühl, Brigitte Roüan, Victoire Du Bois. From the looks of it, this seems to be a very sensual, sultry thriller about a woman being allowed to be with her true love. Is that so much to ask for? Take a look.

Featurette for 'War for the Planet of the Apes' Examines the Stellar VFX

War for the Planet of the Apes Featurette

"I fight only to protect apes." 20th Century Fox has released a new featurette for War for the Planet of the Apes, focusing on the groundbreaking, unbelievable VFX work in the movie. Weta is the VFX studio responsible for bringing to life all of the apes in the movie, which is amazing because they didn't use a single real ape yet it's almost impossible to tell that they aren't real. Seriously. Weta has been improving with each of these three modern Apes movies, and this one has their best work yet. Andy Serkis returns as Caesar, and the cast includes Woody Harrelson as the Colonel. At this point, I really believe Fox needs to push Serkis for awards consideration, because it's jaw-dropping how much his performance makes Caesar feel real. I love that Fox is showing some of this behind-the-scenes footage now. Let's keep building up the hype.

Lord & Miller Fired from the 'Han Solo' Movie in the Middle of Filming

Lord & Miller / Han Solo

Whoa! Major news to report. Directors Phil Lord & Christopher Miller will no longer be directing the Han Solo spin-off Star Wars movie, currently in the middle of filming. Lucasfilm and Lord/Miller have both released statements, via Hollywood Reporter, confirming the shocking news and admitting to "creative differences" as the reason. The project was already most of the way through filming, apparently with only a few weeks left, yet they're not going to finish and will instead hand over the work to someone else (yet to be announced). This is a huge shake-up in Hollywood, and will be talked about for years. For now, the original May 25th, 2018 release date is still unchanged, with reshoots planned later this summer with a new director.
