New US Trailer for Danish Film 'The Guilty' Starring Jakob Cedergren

The Guilty Trailer

"Emergency services. Hello?" Magnolia Pictures has debuted the official US trailer for the highly acclaimed, award-winning Danish drama The Guilty, from director Gustav Möller. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year, where it won the Audience Award in the World Dramatic Competition section, then went on to play at the Rotterdam, Seattle, Montclair, Dallas, Sydney, and Karlovy Vary Film Festivals. Set entirely inside of one place - a 911 call center in Denmark - the film is about a police officer demoted to work for a day in the call center receiving calls, who has a life-changing experience when a woman calls to report that she has been kidnapped. Jakob Cedergren stars in one of this year's best performances. I saw this at Sundance and loved it, saying in my review that it's "an exhilarating thriller." I can't recommend it enough.

First Trailer for László Nemes' New Film 'Sunset' Premiering in Venice

Sunset Trailer

"Why are you so sad?" Screen International has unveiled the first official trailer for László Nemes' new film Sunset and my goodness does it looks incredible. This is the next film from the highly acclaimed Hungarian director of the film Son of Saul, and it's set to premiere at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals this fall. Sunset tells the story of a young girl who grows up to become a strong and fearless woman in Budapest before World War I. Juli Jakab stars as Írisz Leiter, and the cast includes Vlad Ivanov, Susanne Wuest, Björn Freiberg, Levente Molnár, Mónika Balsai, Urs Rechn, Judit Bárdos, and Evelin Dobos. I don't know much about this film yet, but I think it looks extraordinary already, especially because I believe Nemes is a genius (for making Son of Saul). I'll be seeing this in Venice and will have a review up soon after.

Girl Trailer

"Work harder, or it will be a hopeless situation." The Match Factory has debuted an international trailer for the acclaimed film titled Girl, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year and won the Camera d'Or for Best First Film. Girl follows a 15-year-old transgender teen, who is trying hard to achieve her goal of becoming a professional ballerina. The film stars Victor Polster as Lara, and gives us an intimate look at the incredible struggles and emotional challenges that she is facing. It's one of the best films that I saw at Cannes this year, and I wrote in my effusive review: "it's such an achingly beautiful, emotionally resonant, intelligent, breathtaking film." The cast includes Arieh Worthalter, Katelijne Damen, and Valentijn Dhaenens. This is a really wonderful film that I hope finds an audience, it deserves to be seen. Take a look.

Full-Length Trailer for Filipino Action Film 'BuyBust' with Anne Curtis

BuyBust Trailer

"The only way out - is to fight." Well Go USA has debuted an awesome new full-length official trailer for an action thriller from the Philippines titled BuyBust, the latest film made by veteran Filipino filmmaker Erik Matti. The teaser trailer was promising, and this trailer has some impressive action as well. Might actually be worth a watch. The plot of BuyBust involves the anti-drug enforcement agency staging a massive drug bust in the slums of Manila in the Philippines. But when things go wrong, they get stuck in the middle of a brutal drug gang and hordes of bloodthirsty citizens, so their only option is to fight their way out. Hell yes. Anne Curtis (from In Your Eyes, The Gifted) stars, with Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying, Victor Neri, Joross Gamboa, Nafa Hilario-Cruz, Brandon Vera, and Nonie Buencamino. The action in this looks totally badass! These fights plus Anne Curtis kicking ass - this film is on my must see list for sure.

First Trailer for Next Norwegian Disaster Movie 'The Quake' Set in Oslo

The Quake Trailer

"But what if it's not the same strength as in 1904…?" Nordisk Filmdistribusjon already released an official trailer for a Norwegian disaster movie titled The Quake, the next big Norwegian disaster movie to follow the highly successful The Wave from 2015. As you might expect, the movie is about an Earthquake that hits Oslo, centered on a fault-line underneath the city of 1.7 million. Also known as Skjelvet in Norwegian, this is opening in August in Norway but still has no other international release plans set yet. Starring Ane Dahl Torp, Kristoffer Joner, Hang Tran, and Jonas Hoff Oftebro. The footage actually looks like a Roland Emmerich-esque disaster movie, so good work in that sense, but I'm not too sure it's going to be any good.

Legend of the Ancient Sword Trailer

Nothing like some campy Chinese fantasy action to start the day, right? The first teaser trailer has debuted online for a new Chinese fantasy-adventure-action film directed by action veteran Renny Harlin (of Die Hard 2, Cliffhanger, Cutthroat Island, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Deep Blue Sea, Exorcist: The Beginning, 12 Rounds, Skiptrace) titled Legend of the Ancient Sword. Based on the video game "Gu Jian Qi Tan 2", the film centers around a young student of a lost martial arts form (called "Yan") who heads out from his hometown to find a great master. The main cast includes Leehom Wang, Victoria Song, Godfrey Gao, Karena Ng, Julian Cheung, Archie Kao, Ada Liu, and Li Yan. This looks pretty much exactly like it sounds: packed with CGI action, vibrant sets, eccentric characters, and a flaming "ancient" sword. Have fun.

Full US Trailer for Korean Double Agent Thriller 'The Spy Gone North'

The Spy Gone North Trailer

"His influence in the North is unimaginable." CJ Entertainment has just released a new full-length official trailer for a political thriller titled The Spy Gone North, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Midnight section earlier this summer. If you're into political thrillers, this is definitely a must see. The latest from Korean filmmaker Yoon Jong-bin (The Unforgiven, Kundo: Age of the Rampant), the double agent film follows a South Korean spy who infiltrates the North to obtain intelligence on the country's nuclear weapons plans in the mid-1990s. This stars Hwang Jung-min, Lee Sung-min, Cho Jin-woong, and Ju Ji-hoon. The new trailer is as intense and compelling as the first teaser previously, but with even more clarity. This seems like such a sneaky, complex noir thriller and I'm very curious to check it out myself.

But as the title says, of course she is not a witch. The film stars Maggie Mulubwa as Shula, along with a vibrant cast of local actors. If you've been hearing about this one, now is your chance to finally catch it when it opens in theaters this September.

"Just give me this one chance…" A24 has released a second official trailer for a film titled A Prayer Before Dawn, shot by a French filmmaker in a real Thai prison starring real inmates. This played at the Cannes Film Festival last year, but has been awaiting release from A24 ever since, finally in theaters next month. Based on a true story, the film is about a young English boxer who is thrown into prisons in Thailand, where he fights back and trains to be a competitor in a vicious Muay Thai boxing tournament. Joe Cole stars as Billy Moore, the one white man in this Thai world, who has nothing but boxing. The cast includes Vithaya Pansringarm, Panya Yimmumphai, Nicolas Shake, Pornchanok Mabklang, plus the real Billy Moore in a cameo role.

Cold War Trailer

"A faultless romantic epic." Curzon Artificial Eye has revealed an official UK trailer for the award-winning Polish film Cold War (or Zimna Wojna), which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in competition this May. Cold War is the latest from acclaimed Polish filmmaker Pawel Pawlikowski (The Woman in the Fifth, Ida) and he also won Best Director in Cannes. The film is about a passionate love story between two people, who are fatefully mismatched. Wiktor, played by Tomasz Kot, falls for Zula, played by Joanna Kulig, and they spend years drifting together and apart. Set against the background of the Cold War in the 1950s. The cast includes Borys Szyc, Agata Kulesza, Cèdric Kahn, and Jeanne Balibar. The two leads are stupendous, some of the best performances all year, enhanced by gorgeous B&W shots by Pawlikowski's DP Lukasz Zal. This lovely trailer provides a preview of some of the mesmerizing jazz music from the film.

Cocote Trailer

"Your father owed him money but couldn't pay back." Grasshopper Film has released an official US trailer for an acclaimed crime drama titled Cocote, set in the Dominican Republic and made by a talented up-and-coming Dominican filmmaker named Nelson Carlo De Los Santos Arias. The film first premiered at the Locarno and Toronto Film Festivals last year, and played at a few other festivals before its upcoming release in limited US theaters later this July. Cocote is about an Evangelical Christian man who attends the funeral services for his father in his small hometown, where he has to participate in religious rites that clash with his beliefs and he finds himself pressured to take revenge on the murderer. Cocote stars Vicente Santos, Judth Rodríguez, and Yuberbi de la Rosa. This looks like a very authentic, riveting film about a man struggling to come to grips with his own reality after the death of his father. This one is for real cinephiles.

Official US Trailer for Portuguese Horror 'The Forest of the Lost Souls'

The Forest of the Lost Souls Trailer

"Sadness will last forever." Wild Eye Releasing has debuted an official US trailer for a Portuguese horror film titled The Forest of the Lost Souls, or originally A Floresta das Almas Perdidas in Portuguese. The psychological coming-of-age horror film is about two strangers who find themselves in the same "dense and remote forest", a place where many people go to commit suicide. They continue talking and walking and start to learn more about each other, taking them down a path neither expected. The Forest of the Lost Souls stars Daniela Love and Jorge Mota, along with Mafalda Banquart, Lígia Roque, Lília Lopes, and Tiago Jácome. It's hard to really figure out what's going on in this trailer, but it looks like there might be something intriguing here. It also seems like there's a major twist or two we're not supposed to see coming.
