Sundance 2018: The 10 Most Anticipated Films I Can't Wait to See There

Sundance 2018

Back to Sundance we go for another year of discovery. What's on the line-up this year? Out of the 110+ films showing at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, I've chosen 10 that I'm looking forward to seeing the most. To keep things well balanced, I've chosen 5 feature films and 5 documentaries from the line-up. There are so many films playing at the fest, and so many I'll end up seeing (30+), that this is a quick list to get everyone acquainted with some of the work premiering in 2018 (I just want to go see everything). There are new films from great filmmakers like Desiree Akhavan and Reed Morano, and docs about Robin Williams and Fred Rogers, and many other films. You never know what will good or bad, but here's my first few picks for 2018.

Teaser Trailer for Korean Superpowers Action Comedy 'Psychokinesis'

Psychokinesis Trailer

"Suddenly… you have a supernatural power!" An international trailer has arrived online for a new Korean action film titled Psychokinesis, the latest feature from the director of the acclaimed zombie feature Train to Busan. Sang-ho Yeon directs this new dark comedy film about a father who ties to save his daughter after discovering he has superpowers. The cast includes Seung-ryong Ryu as the father, and Eun-kyung Shim as his daughter Roo-mi, along with Yu-mi Jung, Do-yoon Kim, and Yeong-gi Jeong. This is just the first trailer, but it does have some cool footage in it. I quite like the mix of comedy and action, seems like it's going to be very fun to watch. Hopefully it arrives over here sooner than later, as I want to see this already.

First Trailer for Gus Van Sant's 'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot'

Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot Trailer

"This doesn't just go away… You have to fight with it, or you die." Amazon Studios has debuted the very first teaser trailer for Gus Van Sant's latest film, titled Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, which is premiering at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival starting this week. The film shows on Friday night, and we'll be there at the world premiere. Based on John Callahan's memoir, the story follows a Portland slacker who nearly loses his life in a car accident, and lives in wheelchair after. He tries to give up alcohol and figure out how to live a better life, discovering a love for drawing "edgy, irreverent" newspaper cartoons. Joaquin Phoenix stars as John Callahan, and the cast includes Rooney Mara, Jonah Hill, Beth Ditto, Olivia Hamilton, Udo Kier, Kim Gordon, and Carrie Brownstein. I'm very impressed, this is a stellar teaser, with some excellent classic rock music and solid footage. Looking forward to catching this at Sundance soon.

Nick Robinson in Second Trailer for Gay Coming-of-Age 'Love, Simon'

Love, Simon Trailer

"Disclaimer: this is about to get romantic as F." 20th Century Fox has debuted the second official trailer for a movie titled Love, Simon, in theaters this March. This is one of the first gay coming-of-age films about the life of high schooler who has yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. And it looks great! No really, check this out you may be surprised. Starring young actor Nick Robinson (from Jurassic World and The Kings of Summer) as Simon. Also starring Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Miles Heizer, Keiynan Lonsdale, Logan Miller, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Tony Hale. This looks very charming and entertaining, better than I was expecting, and I'm seriously looking forward to it. Have fun.

Fun UK Trailer for Feel-Good Wrestling Comedy 'Walk Like A Panther'

Walk Like A Panther Trailer

"The Panthers… You shall all be warriors once more!" 20th Century Fox UK has unveiled an official trailer for a feel-good, cheesy comedy titled Walk Like A Panther, which opens in UK cinemas in March (but no US release planned yet). The film stars Stephen Graham and Dave Johns (the lead of I, Daniel Blake) as a father-son duo who must team up to help save their local pub when it's threatened. They gather up their old wrestling friends to put on one big show dressed up in their goofy 80's wrestling costumes to make extra money for the pub. The cast includes Stephen Marcus, Julian Sands, Jill Halfpenny, Christopher Fairbank, Robbie Gee, Sue Johnston, plus Stephen Tompkinson, along with Lena Headey and Jason Flemyng. This looks sort of fun, I guess. If this kind of British humor is your thing, then have at it.

Trailer for 'Genesis 2.0' Sundance Doc About Hunting Mammoth Tusks

Genesis 2.0 Doc Trailer

"In the quest for life, there is nowhere man will not go." The first full trailer has debuted online for a new documentary film titled Genesis 2.0, which is premiering at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival this month. Made by Swiss filmmaker Christian Frei and Russian filmmaker Maxim Arbugaev, the film profiles the "gold rush" happening in Siberia right now - scavengers in the cold who hunt for mammoth tusks (prized in the Chinese art market). Not only do they go into Siberia to understand how these communities of hunters work, but it also goes beyond to explore next step: resurrecting the mammoth is a first manifestation of the next great technological revolution. "Man becomes Creator. Genesis two point zero." That's where the title comes from. This seems like a captivating, mind-expanding documentary that examines "life" itself. Dig in.

Official Trailer for Fascinating German Documentary Film 'He She I'

He She I Trailer

"I'm the only link between my parents." An official trailer is available online for a German documentary film titled He She I, or just Er Sie Ich in German, made by the very talented filmmaker Carlotta Kittel. This fascinating documentary is about two parents, and former lovers, who chat about their experiences together from their past. Here's the concept - each person (they haven't seen or talked to each other in over 20 years) was interviewed individually about their romance and the child they had together. Then, a year or so later, the other person's interview was shown to the opposite person - and that interview was also taped as they discuss thoughts on what the other person was saying. It's a painfully honest, sometimes amusing look at how everyone tells a different story - and how everyone's experiences are unique, even time spent together. I had a chance to see this film and I think about it often, a very impressive, emotional, unique doc.

First Trailer for Netflix Doc 'Seeing Allred' About Activist Gloria Allred

Seeing Allred Doc Trailer

"There is a war on women… Women depend on me to be strong." Netflix has debuted the first trailer for a documentary titled Seeing Allred, premiering at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival this month. Directed by doc filmmakers Sophie Sartain & Roberta Grossman, the film profiles activist and women's rights attorney Gloria Allred, who has become even more prominent in the last few years with so many high profile sexual assault cases. The doc features key interviews with Gloria Steinem, Don Lemon, Alan Dershowitz, Allred's daughter Lisa Bloom and many others. Seeing Allred is described as "a portrait of a woman everyone thinks they know, at a time when women need her the most." This looks like a powerful, timely, very important film that goes beyond just profiling the life of a candid activist, by also holding up a mirror to society today.

Zosia Mamet in Trailer for Sophie Brooks' Drama 'The Boy Downstairs'

The Boy Downstairs Trailer

"He's probably still in love with you…" FilmRise has debuted a trailer for a charming romantic drama film titled The Boy Downstairs, from newcomer Sophie Brooks. The film played at the Tribeca and London Film Festivals, and will hit limited theaters starting February. Zosia Mamet (from "Girls", Wiener-Dog, Kate Can't Swim) stars as a woman who moves back to New York City and finds the perfect apartment to live in. However, she discovers her ex-boyfriend happens to be living in the apartment downstairs, and deals with her feelings for him while trying to figure out how to be successful in her own way. The cast includes Matthew Shear as the "boy", as well as Sarah Ramos, Deirdre O'Connell, and Diana Irvine. I saw this in London and it's charming, very quirky, but not that memorable or original in its story, but still good.

Official US Trailer for François Ozon's Sensual Romance 'Double Lover'

The Double Lover

"Lying to seduce is common practice among pretty women." Cohen Media Group has debuted the official US trailer for the latest film from French filmmaker François Ozon, titled The Double Lover (in French, it is L'amant Double), which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year. This is being released right around Valentine's Day in the US, which might be too on-the-nose for this very sexual romance. Apparently the opening shot is a jaw-dropping zoom out from a woman's privates, and the film only gets more sensual from there. Marine Vacth stars as Chloé, a vulnerable Parisian woman who falls madly in love with her charming therapist, only to discover he is hiding part of his identity when she gets closer to him. The cast includes Jérémie Renier, Jacqueline Bisset, Myriam Boyer, and Fanny Sage. If you're looking for something romantic and sexual and tantalizing and very French, then you might want to take a look at this.

Watch: Impressive Homemade 'Gremlins' Short Film 'Gremlins: Recall'

Gremlins: Recall Short Film

"They don't normally does this?!" They're back! Don't feed them after midnight, don't let them get wet, you know the rules. While we wait patiently for the long-awaited official Gremlins reboot, or sequel, or whatever it is they're working on, we have this awesome fan film to keep Gremlins fans happy. Gremlins: Recall is a fan film made by filmmaker Ryan Patrick and a whole bunch of his Gremlins-loving friends. This is a seriously impressive fan film, with excellent production value and sleek cinematography, not to mention a good soundtrack (which you can download here). I love the way this opens with the infomercial, it's kind of deceptive at first, but plays right into the story. And now I really would like another official Gremlins movie.
