Watch: New US Trailer for 'Youth' with Michael Caine & Harvey Keitel

Youth US Trailer

"Who were you? 'Who?' - that's what I always ask myself…" Fox Searchlight has debuted their new official US trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, starring Michael Caine as an aging composer who retreats with his filmmaker friend, played by Harvey Keitel, to a spa in the Alps. There they encounter some interesting characters and discuss life, and youth, and beauty, and more. Rachel Weisz also stars as Caine's daughter, who also joins him on the trip. The cast includes Paul Dano, Jane Fonda and Ed Stoppard. This trailer starts out looking like a fun indie comedy, then becomes something very poetic in the second half. The best trailer yet, very moving - I can't wait to see this. "I don't owe anybody anything, I did it myself!" Enjoy it.

New Poster for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Film Premiering Very Soon

Steve Jobs Film

Universal has debuted a poster for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film, which is about to premiere and start earning real buzz with critics/journalists. I've heard from numerous places that the film will be premiering at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day, and it will also play at the New York Film Festival in October. We've already seen a couple of trailers so far, and it looks way better than I was expecting, though I'm very curious to see how much of an influence Boyle had. Since I'm perhaps more intrigued by Sorkin's script than anything else. Michael Fassbender plays the iconic black-turtleneck-wearing tech innovator Steve Jobs.

Check Out This Excellent Daniel Craig Era James Bond Tribute Video

Daniel Craig James Bond Tribute

"You don't trust anyone, do you James?" It may be a bit too early to be posting a tribute to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond movies, considering we're still in the midst of it, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy one anyway. YouTube user Steven Thomas has edited together an excellent five minute tribute to Daniel Craig as Agent 007 in anticipation of his fourth movie coming up, Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes arriving in theaters this November. Roger Moore made seven Bond movies, Sean Connery made six (not counting Never Say Never Again), so Craig has a few to go to match them. I'm very excited for Spectre and I'm hoping it's as good as if not better than Skyfall. In the meantime, watch this 007 tribute in full below.

Watch: Sharlto Copley Playing Chappie in Impressive VFX Breakdown

Chappie VFX Breakdown

This is impressive. While Neill Blomkamp is off working on his version of an Alien movie, let's try not to forget that Chappie was released this year. Whether you liked the film or not, there's a lot that Blomkamp does as a sci-fi director that should be admired. Whether it's the way he seamlessly integrates sleek CGI into practical scenes, or tries to create entirely CG characters and make them feel completely real. That's a lot harder than it sounds, and thankfully there's a few VFX teams that help him pull this off. One of the VFX houses responsible for a large chunk of the main work on Chappie was Image Engine, a Vancouver based agency. This 4-minute reel shows how they went from blank plates or actual shots with Sharlto Copley in costume to the final footage with the robot. There's some impressive work on display in here, so take a look.

First Teaser Trailer for Guy Maddin's New Film 'The Forbidden Room'

The Forbidden Room Trailer

Get a load of this! What a funky teaser trailer. The first official teaser trailer for Guy Maddin's new film The Forbidden Room has debuted online, and it's a quite a doozy. This wacky, experimental film premiered at Sundance in the New Frontier section. If you're familiar with Maddin's past work, you may know his style already. But if not, this fun teaser will give you a brief glimpse. The introduction of the cast is a bit tiresome, but at least it looks nice. Directed by Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson, The Forbidden Room stars Roy Dupuis, Clara Furey, Louis Negin, Udo Kier, Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Rampling and Victor Andres Turgeon-Trelles. If abstract stories that dive six layers deep are your thing, then give this a whirl.

Watch: Omaze's Nimoy Tribute from Cast & Crew of 'Star Trek Beyond'

Star Trek Beyond - Nimoy Tribute

Omaze has launched another short new promo video from the set of Star Trek Beyond. This one is special though, it's a tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy from the entire cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond, being directed by Justin Lin. We've already featured a number of these Omaze Star Trek mini promos before, but this one is worth seeing for all the footage of Nimoy and the love they have for him. The video features most of the cast and is narrated specifically by Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in this new Star Trek series. The rest is all about collecting money for a charity Nimoy supported, so take a look. Live long and prosper.

See the Trailer for Stephen Tobolowsky Doc 'The Primary Instinct'

The Primary Instinct Trailer

"That thing that makes a story a story…" FilmBuff has debuted the first teaser trailer for David Chen's documentary The Primary Instinct, about actor/entertainer Stephen Tobolowsky. The documentary follows Tobolowsky across the country while he speaks at events and performs "The Tobolowsky Files", the podcast hosted by Chen and Tobolowsky. It's essentially a concert film made up mostly of footage from his events with an extra edge looking at storytelling, asking the question of "why do we tell stories in the first place?" This actually looks really good! I'm already fascinated by what Tobolowsky talks about in this tease.

Alamo Drafthouse Hosting 'Septemberg' Spielberg Month Screenings

Septemberg - Alamo Drafthouse

"I wanted to show them something that wasn't an illusion. Something that was real." Get ready for Steven Spielberg mania all-September-long at your local Alamo Drafthouse! Drafthouse has officially announced a new screening series they're hosting called Septemberg, in honor of the upcoming release of Spielberg's newest movie Bridge of Spies (in theaters October 16th). Many of my friends grew up watching Spielberg movies, whether it was E.T. or Indiana Jones or Jaws or Hook or Close Encounters. He's a one-of-a-kind, masterful filmmaker even today, and it's always exciting to revisit his past work. The Drafthouse also put together a fun video teaser for the "Septemberg" series, along with info and locations around the country.

Teaser Trailer for Dark Comedy 'Kill Your Friends' with Nicholas Hoult

Kill Your Friends Teaser Trailer

"How far are you willing to go?" Are you ready for this? StudioCanal UK has debuted a teaser trailer for the dark comedy Kill Your Friends, starring Nicholas Hoult as an A&R man working at the height of the Britpop music craze. This looks like it gets a bit more darker and crazier than just an "A&R man" looking for a new hit group, almost like a British mash-up between American Psycho, Filth and Almost Famous. Aside from Hoult, the cast includes Ed Skrein, James Corden, Rosanna Arquette, Tom Riley, Georgia King and Craig Roberts. It's just a tease, though I'm certainly intrigued after that glimpse. Take a look!

Watch: New 'I'm Alive' TV Spot for Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi 'The Martian'

The Martian TV Spot

"I'll never stop fighting to make it home." This is easily one of my most anticipated movies coming up this fall, so I'm happy to keep posting some cool promos. This time it's another new TV spot (following the latest trailer) for Ridley Scott's sci-fi The Martian, starring Matt Damon as Mark Watney, and the spot comes in at 60 seconds. There's lots of new footage, lots of old footage, everything together making this look absolutely amazing. Of course, we should be cautiously optimistic since it is Ridley Scott, but at least there are some cool FX, and Watney's story seems worth exploring. Co-starring Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor. Enjoy.

Official Trailer for Korean Martial Arts Film 'Memories of the Sword'

Memories of the Sword

"The next time we meet, one of us must die." Well Go USA has unveiled an official US trailer for the Korean martial arts film Memories of the Sword, starring Byung-hun Lee (seen in Terminator: Genisys) and Jeon Do-yeon (seen in The Housemaid) and Kim Go-eun (seen in Monster). The story seems to follow a revenge plot involving a young girl who trains to take on one of the most powerful men and warriors of the Goryo Dynasty. It does look like there are a few epic fight scenes in this, with some stunning slow motion shots. But is it anything more than just a revenge story with some martial arts action? Will anyone find out?

Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Finders Keepers' Amputated Leg Doc

Finders Keepers Documentary

One man's leg is another man's treasure. The Orchard has revealed the first official trailer for Finders Keepers, one of our favorite documentaries out of the Sundance Film Festival this year. This is one of those so-crazy-you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it true stories about two men from North Carolina fighting over a leg. One of them lost his leg in a tragic and fatal plane crash, and through some weird happenstance, it ended up in the hands of another man, who used it to make himself famous - his life dream. No, seriously. At first he charged money for people to see it, then even got himself on TV shows, and it just went from. It's wild, and this documentary is a heartfelt, honest, and remarkable look at both sides of the story. You have to see this!

Trailer for Todd Strauss-Schulson's Horror Comedy 'The Final Girls'

The Final Girls Trailer

"Movies like this end when the final girl kills the bad guy, and the credits roll…" This looks crazy! If you love horror movies, you have to see this. The first trailer has debuted for a horror comedy spoof called The Final Girls, directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson. The film is basically a huge riff on the entire horror genre, breaking all sorts of tropes and making fun of everything from flashbacks to the "final girl" killing the bad guy at the end. It looks really crazy fun, and I'm sure it'll be a good one to watch this October. The huge cast includes Taissa Farmiga starring as Max, plus Malin Akerman, Alexander Ludwig, Nina Dobrev, Alia Shawkat, Adam Devine, Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges & Thomas Middleditch. Have fun!
