Official US Trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' Funky Romance 'The Lobster'

The Lobster Trailer

"Have you ever danced with anybody?" Alchemy has debuted the official US trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos' latest film called The Lobster, starring Colin Farrell. The film is mostly in English, set in a dystopian future where single people end up at a villa where they must find a mate within 45 days or be turned into an animal. It's a brilliant mockery of modern society and romance, and some moviegoers will totally fall or it, while others will find it annoying. The full cast includes Rachel Weisz, Léa Seydoux, John C. Reilly and Ben Whishaw. This trailer starts to show more of the second half where Farrell ends up with a group hiding out in the forest, all in pursuit of Weisz. I seriously enjoyed this film - read my NYFF review. Enjoy!

Must Watch: Full Green Band Trailer for Key & Peele's Comedy 'Keanu'

Keanu Trailer

"Here kitty, kitty!" Warner Bros has unleashed the new green band trailer for the comedy Keanu, starring Keegan-Michael Key & Jordan Peele. This is the regular green version of the red band trailer that was debuted a few weeks ago, just before the Sundance Film Festival kicked off, which sold me already. Key & Peele star as "black nerds" that go on a mission to find and rescue their missing kitten named Keanu. The supporting cast also includes Luis Guzmán, Will Forte, Nia Long, Rob Huebel & Method Man. I've been excited to see this ever since I heard about it and the footage looks hilarious, love these two comedians.

Efron, Kendrick, DeVine in 'Mike & Dave Need Wedding Dates' Trailer

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Trailer

"Who are these girls?!" You are cordially invited to meet the Stangle Brothers in this new comedy Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. This team-up stars Zac Efron and Adam DeVine as Dave and Make, respectively, along with Aubrey Plaza and Anna Kendrick as their dates, in a wacky comedy about two "hard-partying" brothers who need dates for their sister's wedding. Ever since noticing this film with this fun title on the release schedule, I've been wondering if it would play like Romy and Michele's High School Reunion. But it's actually much more like Step Brothers meets Wedding Crashers with a twist. See below.

Watch: Two Turkish Airlines Ads for the Cities in 'Batman v Superman'

Batman v Superman Turkish Airlines

"There's never been a better time to visit our great city." Whoa! Now these are cool TV ads, not just your conventional TV spots. Turkish Airlines has debuted two different 60-second TV ads that are also promoting Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman. Each spot is a travel ad for visiting either Gotham City, hosted by Wayne Enterprise CEO Bruce Wayne, played by Ben Affleck; or Metropolis, hosted by Lex Corp's CEO Lex Luthor, played by Jesse Eisenberg. There is mention of Metropolis' "heroes" and they show Superman flying around. I just love the way these TV spots are presented, like they're naturally a part of the world, and an airline deal is totally normal. They run back-to-back on TV and are very effective. I want to visit Gotham!

More Mysterious Footage in Super Bowl Spot for '10 Cloverfield Lane'

10 Cloverfield Lane Super Bowl Spot

"I saved your life by bringing you here." Paramount has debuted a new 30-second TV spot during the Super Bowl for Bad Robot's sneaky little sci-fi film 10 Cloverfield Lane, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, of the short Portal: No Escape (follow him on Twitter at @DannyTRS). Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars as a woman who wakes up in an underground bunker after a car accident, but doesn't know what's out there or why she's stuck there. She's joined by John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., and most of the film takes place in the bunker with these three. The final shot in this TV spot is quite a doozy - either that's a huge reveal from the third act or just a big tease, but I'm not sure what they're showing. Don't miss this one.

Watch: Marvel's Super Bowl TV Spot for 'Captain America: Civil War'

Civil War Super Bowl TV Spot

"United we stand! United we stand! Divided we fall! Divided we fall!" Disney aired this new TV Spot during the Super Bowl for Captain America: Civil War, directed by the Russo Brothers. Chris Evans stars as Cap, friend of Bucky played by Sebastian Stan, and they end up squaring off against Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. This also features a cool face-to-face shot of the two different sides brewing in this Marvel "Civil War", including Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Paul Bettany as Vision, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlett Witch. If this doesn't make you curious about how they're playing this split, I don't know what will.

Destruction in Super Bowl TV Spot for 'Independence Day: Resurgence'

Independence Day: Resurgence

"What goes up, must come… down." 20th Century Fox has released a very epic new TV spot for the Super Bowl for Roland Emmerich's Independence Day: Resurgence, the return of the Independence Day story. With only 30 seconds to spare, this spot focuses mostly on epic destruction of various cities and the arrival of whatever massive back-up destroyer the aliens have sent this time. The main cast features: Jeff Goldblum back as David Levinson, Jessie Usher as Dylan Hiller, Liam Hemsworth as Jake Morrison; plus there's a glimpse of Bill Pullman as President Whitmore. In terms of the "holy sh*t" factor and grabbing our attention, this spot is one of the winners. This looks crazy fun, I'm definitely hooked I'll admit.

"Everything they've built will fall!" Nothing can stop the Apocalypse. 20th Century Fox has unveiled a new TV spot for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse, the latest epic sequel in the new iteration of the X-Men movie series.

Watch: New Super Bowl TV Spot for 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

"No sleep till Brooklyn!" Paramount debuted this new TV spot during the Super Bowl for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2, the sequel to the live-action-CG-hybrid TMNT movie from 2014. This sequel seems to follow in line with the first, but introduces Bebop and Rocksteady as the villains, briefly appearing in this. The cast includes a few folks from the first and the Turtles: Megan Fox, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Noel Fisher, Pete Ploszek, Jeremy Howard, Stephen Amell and others. This doesn't make me any more excited than the first trailer, but maybe I'm just not the right audience for this anymore. Take a look.

First TV Spot for Paul Greengrass' 'Jason Bourne' Starring Matt Damon

Jason Bourne TV Spot

"Remembering everything doesn't mean you know everything. Universal has released the first TV spot for Jason Bourne, the new sequel/reboot starring Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, once again nine years after Ultimatum. It's directed by Paul Greengrass, returning again also nine years after Ultimatum. I've got to be honest - this is a badass re-introduction to Bourne to drop. There's some seriously kick ass action footage in this, though that's all there seems to be - action. Matt Damon is also credit on the screenplay, which means he's fully invested. Also starring Alicia Vikander, Julia Stiles, Tommy Lee Jones, Vincent Cassel and Riz Ahmed. Hope we get to see more soon. Watch below and let us know your initial thoughts.

The Jungle Book Trailer

"Bears don't hibernate in the jungle!" "Not full hibernation, but I nap… a lot. Disney has unveiled a full-length trailer along with the full Super Bowl spot for Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, which still looks better than expected. This live-action-CG-hybrid version of The Jungle Book stars Neel Sethi as Mowgli, the boy from the jungle. The voice cast includes Bill Murray as Baloo, Ben Kingsley as Bagheera, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Scarlett Johansson as Kaa, also featuring Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Lupita Nyong'o and Emjay Anthony. We finally get to see a real scene with Baloo in this, and he seems as lovable as always. The animals and VFX are looking better and better, can't wait to see this film.

Alejandro G. Iñárritu & Alex Garland Win 2016 Directors Guild Awards

Alejandro G. Iñárritu & Alex Garland

This is an awards season unlike any other. Last night, the 68th DGA Awards were held in Los Angeles and for the second year in a row, Alejandro G. Iñárritu won the top prize in feature filmmaking. Iñárritu won the DGA Award last year for directing Birdman, and won this year for directing The Revenant, which is still playing in theaters nationwide. Iñárritu won over industry favorites George Miller (of Mad Max: Fury Road) and Adam McKay (of The Big Short). Both of these guys could've/should've won and it would've been just as worthy. In addition to Iñárritu's, writer-turned-filmmaker Alex Garland won the inaugural award for Best First-Time Director for Ex Machina, which is the best new addition to the DGA Awards this year.

See the Full Super Bowl Spot for Alex Proyas' 'Gods of Egypt' Movie

Gods of Egypt Super Bowl Spot

"Soon, I will rule all the world…!" Lionsgate has unveiled their 60-scond Super Bowl TV spot for Gods of Egypt a bit early, for those who want a closer look before the Big Game starts. Gods of Egypt is the crazy epic action-adventure movie from Alex Proyas involving lots of white actors playing mythological Egyptian gods, and the first few trailers haven't been that great as the footage looks insane. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau stars as Horus, the one with the eye patch, and he's joined by Gerard Butler as Set, Brenton Thwaites as Bek, Rufus Sewell as Urshu, Geoffrey Rush as Ra, Abbey Lee as Anat, Courtney Eaton as Zaya, Elodie Yung as Hathor and Chadwick Boseman as Thoth. Is this looking any better? Or much worse?

Miles Teller & Anna Kendrick in Official Trailer for Comedy 'Get a Job'

Get a Job Trailer

"I'm 22 years old and I have no idea what I'm going to do with the rest of my life! And I'm fine with that." CBS Films has debuted the theatrical trailer for the comedy Get a Job, starring Miles Teller and Anna Kendrick as a couple struggling with life after college. Right as one of them might finally have snagged a good job, the other one gets fired, and it makes for good humor and good lessons to be learned. The full cast includes some other big names like Bryan Cranston, Marcia Gay Harden, Alison Brie, Ravi Patel, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jorge Garcia, John C. McGinley and John Cho. Not the best looking comedy out there, but it does have good laughs. I'm always glad to see Anna Kendrick in a lead role, too.
