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.

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.

Official US Trailer for Japanese Alien Arrival Drama 'Before We Vanish'

Before We Vanish Trailer

"Is the government declaring war on them?" Neon has launched the first official US trailer for a Japanese sci-fi drama titled Before We Vanish, which played at Cannes Film Festival and New York Film Festival last year and many other fests. The premise is rather peculiar - three aliens travel to Earth to prepare for an invasion, and take possession of human bodies. In doing so, they only leave hollow shells of these people, which start to become noticeable to those around them. The cast features Masami Nagasawa, Ryûhei Matsuda, and Hiroki Hasegawa. It's described as "equally hilarious, thrilling, and profound" and looks like a fascinatingly unique perspective on humanity (and sci-fi) that we don't normally see. I've heard very good things about this and the footage looks excellent. Looking forward to catching this film once it arrives.

New International Trailer for Eva Green & Alicia Vikander's 'Euphoria'

Euphoria Trailer

"If you leave, I'll still do it." This is an intriguing film that may not show up in US theaters for quite some time. Euphoria is the latest film from Swedish filmmaker Lisa Langseth, her first English language feature, and it stars two incredible actors: Eva Green and Alicia Vikander. The story follows these sisters as they travel through Europe to a beautiful country mansion. At first we're not sure why they're going there, but soon discover that one of them wants to go there to end her life. The cast also includes the great Charlotte Rampling with a strong presence throughout, as well as Charles Dance, Mark Stanley, and Adrian Lester. This is our first look at a full trailer and I am very curious about this film, though the buzz seems to be mixed. I like the whole "freedom of choice" concept and I'm curious to see what revelations this contains.

Official US Trailer for Samuel Maoz's Award-Winning Film 'Foxtrot'

Foxtrot Trailer

"Did you know the foxtrot is a dance?" Sony Classics has finally unveiled an official US trailer for one of the best films of 2017, titled Foxtrot, which is Israel's main entry into the Academy Awards this year. Foxtrot premiered at the Venice, Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals and we posted a teaser trailer during its festival run. Now we finally get a full trailer and you can get a glimpse at this masterpiece. Foxtrot is about a family who must face the facts when their son is killed at a desolate military outpost. The film tells both sides of the story, starting with the parents. Featuring Lior Ashkenazi, Sarah Adler, Yonaton Shiray, and Shira Haas. I caught this in Venice and flipped for it (read my review), a phenomenal film with exceptional sound design, cinematography, performances, and an emotional rollercoaster of a story that you will never forget.

Chasing the Dragon Trailer

"From now on, we're the kings of Hong Kong." Well Go USA has dropped another new trailer for the Hong Kong action/crime film Chasing the Dragon, from directors Jason Kwan & Jing Wong. This true story is about a drug lord in the 1960s, who snuck into British-ruled Hong Kong as an illegal immigrant. Donnie Yen stars as "Crippled Ho", who uses his combat skills to get deep into the underground world before being physically destroyed. He eventually works under the control of Chief Detective Sergeant, Lee Rock, played Andy Lau, until the Independent Commission Against Corruption (aka ICAC) in 1974. The cast includes Philip Keung, Kang Yu, Kent Cheng, and Bryan Larkin. This film already first opened in September this year, but this is another trailer for the upcoming DVD/VOD release this January, in case you missed it.

First Quick Teaser for Wacky 'Journey to China' with Schwarzenegger

Journey to China Trailer

This looks very weird. A very short teaser trailer has debuted online for a film titled Journey to China, for short, though it goes by many names. This film is actually Viy 2, a sequel to Viy (from 2014), also known as Forbidden Empire - a fantasy adventure movie set in a cursed Romanian forest. This sequel goes by other titles including: Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask, The Mystery of Dragon Seal: The Journey to China, or just simply Viy-2. The plot involves English traveler/cartographer Jonathan Green journeying to China and falling into a fantastical adventure. The film's peculiar cast features Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng, Yuri Kolokolnikov. Schwarzenegger is playing James Hook, but I don't even know what's going on. Maybe the full-length trailer will reveal more.

New US Trailer for Award-Winning Russian Family Drama 'Loveless'

Loveless Trailer

Sony Classics has debuted an official US trailer for the acclaimed Russian drama Loveless, which has been picking up awards and accolades ever since it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in May. If you haven't heard about this film, now is the time to catch up with it, because it will be showing up on plenty of Top 10 lists from critics this year not to mention the big awards. Loveless is about a Russian couple going through a brutal divorce, and their young son decides to run away to escape them. It's apparently not only a tough look at families and modern relationships, but also a criticism of Russia's current society. Loveless won the Jury Prize in Cannes, Best Cinematography & Best Score at the European Film Awards, Best Film at the London Film Festival, and was nominated for a Golden Globe award (it will very likely get an Oscar nomination as well). The film's cast includes Maryana Spivak, Alexei Rozin, Varvara Shmykova, Matvey Novikov, Daria Pisareva, and Yanina Hope. Check out the new trailer below for a glimpse at this searing drama.

US Trailer for Spain's Oscar Entry Coming-of-Age Film 'Summer 1993'

Summer 1993 Trailer

"Authentic and memorable… with maturity, empathy, and heartfelt emotion." Oscilloscope Labs has just released the first official US trailer for a coming-of-age film titled Summer 1993, which is Spain's official entry into the Best Foreign Language category at the Academy Awards this year. This played at numerous film festivals and will be released in early 2018, after the Oscar nominations are announced. Summer 1993 is a coming-of-age autobiographical drama following a six-year-old girl who moves with her uncle from Barcelona to the countryside, but she finds it hard to forget her mother and adapt to her new life. Newcomer Laia Artigas plays Frida, and the film's cast includes Paula Robles, Bruna Cusí, David Verdaguer. This looks like a very lovely, tender portrait of youth and the challenges of growing up without your parents.

Full US Trailer for Lebanese Film 'The Insult' from Director Ziad Doueiri

The Insult Trailer

"It's about the truth." "Which truth?" Cohen Media Group has released the official US trailer for a Lebanese film titled The Insult, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival this fall. This film is a radical, dramatic profile of the division and tensions in Lebanon, specifically between the two prominent religious groups - Christians and Muslims. Set in Beirut, the story begins when a local man insults a construction worker, and then their tiny verbal spat blows completely out of proportion, almost causing a war in the entire country. From the director of The Attack, The Insult stars Adel Karam, Kamel El Basha, Camille Salameh, Rita Hayek, Christine Choueiri, Diamand Bou Abboud, and Georges Daou. I caught this in Venice and it's a thrilling, intense film, but also very loud and flashy at times, with some weird twists in the second half (it turns into a court room legal battle). Still an important film from Lebanon that is worth seeking out.

Full International Trailer for Refugee Super Power Film 'Jupiter's Moon'

Jupiter's Moon Trailer

"Something's not right about the boy." Curzon UK has debuted the new official international trailer for the Hungarian indie film Jupiter's Moon, made by filmmaker Kornél Mundruczó, who broke out big with the film White God a few years back. Jupiter's Moon first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard category, and received quite a bit of attention because it's about a refugee in Hungary, tying right in with the most important humanitarian crisis of our time. The story follows a refugee who suddenly discovers he has the ability to levitate, and partners with a doctor to make money and attempt to escape the camp where he's being kept. The film's cast includes Zsombor Jéger as Aryan, Merab Ninidze, György Cserhalmi, and Mónika Balsai. This film is worth a look for its originality and cinematography, at least.

Official US Trailer for Aki Kaurismäki's 'Film 'The Other Side of Hope'

The Other Side of Hope Trailer

"Kale has a very sad story." Janus Films has launched a brand new US trailer for the upcoming stateside release of Aki Kaurismäki's latest indie gem film, the highly acclaimed The Other Side of Hope. Set in Helsinki, Finland, this film tells the story of two struggling men whose lives intersect in the middle of the city. One story follows a young refugee from Syria who sneaks into Helsinki, the other follows a traveling salesman who buys a small, unprofitable restaurant. The ensemble cast features Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kuosmanen, Janne Hyytiäinen, Ilkka Koivula, Nuppu Koivu, Simon Hussein Al-Bazoon, and Niroz Haji. This has played at festivals all over the world, and is regarded as one of the best international films this year. It's quite a quirky, funky trailer that really captures how unique and intelligent this film is.
