First Teaser Trailer for Hazanavicius' 'Redoubtable' Introduces Godard

Redoubtable Trailer

Time for a nice Cannes tease. French filmmaker Michel Hazanavicius (of The Artist, The Search) has premiered the first teaser trailer for his next film, titled Redoubtable, telling a story about the 1960s love affair between filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard and 17-year-old actress Anne Wiazemsky. The film takes place during the making of and release of Godard's film La Chinoise, from 1967 to 1968. Featuring Louis Garrel as Godard and Stacy Martin (from Lars von Trier's Nymphomaniac) as Wiazemsky. The cast includes Louis Garrel, Bérénice Bejo, and Grégory Gadebois. This is likely going to show up at Cannes, which is why there's so much hype around it already. This is just a quick first look, but I'm intrigued to see more.

New US Trailer for Cristian Mungiu's Film 'Graduation' from Romania

Graduation US Trailer

"A father will do anything to save his daughter's future." Sundance Selects + IFC Films have debuted the official US trailer for a film titled Graduation, made by acclaimed Romanian filmmaker Cristian Mungiu. Mungiu won the Palme d'Or at Cannes a few years ago for 4 Months 3 Weeks and 2 Days, and this new film also premiered in competition at Cannes last year. Graduation (or Bacalaureat in Romanian) is about a father and his daughter, who is just about to graduate and go to a university in the UK. But an attack against her jeopardizes everything. It's a complex film about compromises and the implications of the parent's role. The cast includes Adrian Titieni, Maria Dragus, Rares Andrici, Lia Bugnar, Malina Manovici and Vlad Ivanov. This received fairly positive reviews at Cannes, but it's not better than Mungiu's other films.

Official US Trailer for Thomas Vinterberg's New Film 'The Commune'

The Commune Trailer

"I'm going to hold on to you for the rest of my life." Magnolia Pictures has unveiled an official US trailer for a Danish drama titled The Commune, the latest film from Danish filmmaker Thomas Vinterberg. This first premiered at last year's Berlin Film Festival, and is just now getting a US release this summer more than a year later. The Commune is about exactly what the title says - a commune in Denmark in the 1970s. It plays with the idea of whether a commune, a collection of random people all living in one big house together, can actually work. The film's ensemble cast includes Trine Dyrholm, Ulrich Thomsen, Helene Reingaard Neumann, Lars Ranthe, Julie Agnete Vang and Fares Fares. I saw this at Berlinale last year, and it's pretty damn good, with some outstanding performances from the cast which make it better than it really is.

First Trailer for 'Warrior's Gate' About a Video Gamer in Ancient China

Warrior's Gate Trailer

"I need you to guard the most precious treasure of the Empire." Don't miss out on this one, movie lovers. EuropaCorp has unveiled a trailer for a crazy new action film titled Warrior's Gate, which is the latest feature co-written by Luc Besson & Robert Mark Kamen (of the Taken and Transporter series). Warrior's Gate is about a teenager gamer living in California who is transported to China and learns to fight as a kung fu warrior, in order to save the princess (of course). It's basically a twist on The Last Starfighter. This is a a co-production between France and China, which is an odd pairing, but it works. The cast includes Uriah Shelton as Jack, Mark Chao, Dave Bautista, Ni Ni, Francis Ng, and Sienna Guillory. This actually looks kind of cool, but also looks like it's straight out of the back of a video rental store in the 90s. Have fun.

New US Trailer for Danièle Thompson's 'Cézanne Et Moi' About Artists

Cézanne Et Moi Trailer

"I'd like to paint as you write." Magnolia Pictures has debuted an official US trailer for Danièle Thompson's biopic drama Cézanne Et Moi, also known as Cézanne and I, about a friendship between two artists. The film tells of the parallel paths between the lives and careers of post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne and novelist Émile Zola, starting as school pals in Aix-en-Provence to working artists in Paris. Guillaume Gallienne plays Cézanne, and Guillaume Canet plays Zola, with a cast including Alice Pol, Déborah François, Isabelle Candelier, Sabine Azéma, Freya Mavor and Félicien Juttner. This didn't play at any film festivals, but it did already open in European cinemas last year. The film is described as a "polished period piece" that "boldly paints a picture of two 19th century masters." This looks quite good. Take a look.

Watch: Another Action-Packed US Trailer for Johnnie To's Film 'Three'

Three Trailer

"True creative excess." Well Go USA recently released another new trailer for the action film Three, from Hong Kong director Johnnie To. We already featured a trailer for this film last year when it was about to hit theaters, but this new trailer is awesome and worth checking out. Johnnie To's latest film is an action-thriller set almost entirely inside of a hospital where the lives of three people intersect. When a police sting goes bad, a master criminal makes a desperate choice: he forces the cops to shoot him. Once in the hospital, he refuses treatment, instead waiting for his cohorts to break him out. The tension builds between the cop and a surgeon assigned to save his life. The cast features Louis Koo, Wallace Chung, and Vicki Zhao.

New Trailer for Indonesian Action Film 'Headshot' Starring Iko Uwais

Headshot Trailer

"I died once. I won't die again." Vertical Entertainment has debuted a kick ass new action-packed trailer for the Indonesian action film Headshot, starring Iko Uwais from The Raid movies, directed by the guys who made that totally crazy "Safe Haven" segment of V/H/S 2. We initially featured a trailer for this film last year just before it premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, but this new one is much better and makes this movie look like a must see. Uwais plays a guy who wakes up without any memory, only to sudden remember everything and go after the gangsters who took the love of his life. The cast includes Julie Estelle, Sunny Pang, Very Tri Yulisman and others. This looks totally awesome, I'm so ready to give this film a shot. Enjoy.

"Do you live happily?" A short teaser trailer has arrived online for the next film from Korean filmmaker Hong Sang-soo, titled On the Beach at Night Alone. The film is set to premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February this year, which is why this trailer is being released now. Not much is known about the plot yet, but On the Beach at Night Alone is supposedly about an actress who wanders around a seaside town, thinking about her relationship with a married man. The film stars Kim Min-hee, Seo Younghwa, Jung Jaeyoung, and Moon Sungkeun. There isn't much to this first trailer, but it is alluring to watch.

Official US Trailer for Polish Docu-Drama 'All These Sleepless Nights'

All These Sleepless Nights Trailer

"Blurs the line between documentary and fiction like few films before it." The Orchard has released a trailer for a film from last year's Sundance Film Festival, titled All These Sleepless Nights, a Polish docu-drama about the wild lives of carefree youngsters growing up in Poland. The film follows students Kris (Krzysztof Baginski) and Michal (Michal Huszcza) across two summers in Warsaw, who experience life to the limit spending all night at clubs and parties around the city. Described by The Film Stage as "a music-filled ode to the ever-shifting bliss and angst of youth", this seems like a mesmerizing portrait of what life is like growing up in Europe in this day and age. This trailer is amazing, I'm totally into this and really, really want to see it.

Watch: Emrhys Cooper in First Trailer for Bhutanese Film 'Kushuthara'

Kushuthara

"You don't seem happy. I'm just worried about you." A trailer has debuted for a charming new film titled Kushuthara, a rare romantic drama from the tiny Himalayan country Bhutan. Historically, the Bhutanese film industry has looked east for inspiration, modelling itself on the films of Bollywood. Kushuthara is one of the first films to be made in a more western style, with a storyline that draws on Buddhist spirituality. Emrhys Cooper, the first western actor to appear in a Bhutanese film, stars with Kezang Wangmo, and Jamyang Jamtsho Wangchuck (who appeared in Seven Years in Tibet). The dialogue is very cheesy, but I must admit there's a charm to it that makes me want to see it anyway. Plus, I totally love the Himayalas.

Trailer for Korean Action Film 'Fabricated City' About a Framed Gamer

Fabricated City Trailer

"When they step into reality, the real game begins." CJ Entertainment has released an official international trailer (with English subtitles) for an epic Korean action film called Fabricated City. The story follows a nerdy, uber-gamer who is the "best leader" online with his gamer friends. But he is framed for the murder of a young woman, so he teams up with his gamer/hacker friends to try and solve the case and clear his name. Starring Ji Chang-wook, Shim Eun-Kyung, and Oh Jung-se. So this actually looks pretty damn cool, there's some crazy action in it, and the Koreans certainly know how to make edgy but fun thrillers. Game on.

Jackie Chan in First Trailer for Stanley Tong's 'Kung Fu Yoga' Comedy

Kung Fu Yoga Movie Trailer

Two new Jackie Chan movies in one month! Yes indeed (Railroad Tigers is the other). Well Go has debuted an official trailer for the action comedy Kung Fu Yoga, starring Jackie Chan, directed by Stanley Tong. When I was younger, one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies was Rumble in the Bronx, an R-rated action comedy set in Brooklyn and it was awesome. Kung Fu Yoga reunites Chan with Supercop and Rumble in the Bronx director Stanley Tong for the first time in years. And as much as I would hope that was a good thing, this looks terrible. The cast includes Amyra Dastur, Aarif Rahman, Sonu Sood, Disha Patani, Lay Zhang, Eric Tsang. It's an India-China co-production and looks like a CGI-fest. But, the trailer is still fun.
