Brand New US Trailer for Epic Chinese Action Movie 'Wolf Warrior II'

Wolf Warrior II Trailer

"The rebels have hired the most expensive mercenaries out of Europe." Well Go USA has released the new trailer for the release of the epic action movie Wolf Warrior II from China. If you haven't seen the first Wolf Warrior, don't worry, this will be just as fun to watch no matter what. Wolf Warrior II is already the most successful film ever released in China, making over $800 million in that country alone. Wolf Warrior II (or Wolf Warrior 2) brings back Jing Wu, who stars and directs, as the "Wolf Warrior", China's deadliest Special Forces operative who must return to fight off mercenaries terrorizing innocent civilians. The cast includes Celina Jade, Gang Wu, Hans Zhang, Qian Yu, Nan Yu, Shanshan Chunyu, and Haifeng Ding. This looks like one of those action movies they don't make anymore, and I mean that in a good way.

Official US Trailer for Hong Sang-soo's 'On the Beach at Night Alone'

On the Beach at Night Alone Trailer

"How old are you really? Are you back for good?" The Cinema Guild has released an official US trailer for the latest film from prolific Korean filmmaker Hong Sang-soo, titled On the Beach at Night Alone. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, where actress Kim Min-hee won the Silver Bear for Best Actress. It also played at the Los Angeles, Melbourne, Zurich, New York and London Film Festivals. "Art imitates life in this quietly devastating masterpiece" 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. Hong Sang-soo is beloved by critics, but he's kind of an acquired taste, making slow moving but deeply contemplative films. His latest might be worth your time to discover.

Wings of Eagles Trailer

"We'll get through this… together." Archstone Distribution has released an official trailer for a film titled Wings of Eagles, or On Wings of Eagles, formerly known as The Last Race. Produced in China, this film tells true the story of a Scottish athlete stuck in war-torn China during WWII. Joseph Fiennes plays Eric Liddell, a Scottish athlete and missionary in China. After competing in the 1924 Summer Olympics, he then returned to China and remained there until his death in a Japanese civilian internment camp in 1945. Liddell's story is also told in the famous film Chariots of Fire, though this new film focuses more on his experiences in China (he was originally born there of Scottish missionary parents). The film's cast includes Shawn Dou, Elizabeth Arends, Jesse Kove, Augusta Xu-Holland, and Simon Twu. Check this out.

Official Trailer for Corruption Drama 'A Man of Integrity' Made in Iran

A Man of Integrity Trailer

"You wanted me to fight?" The Match Factory has released a new official trailer for an Iranian drama titled A Man of Integrity, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival before going on to play at a bunch of other festivals this year. The film is about a humble, hard-working man who runs a goldfish farm on his property in a small Iranian town. He tries to keep his life and his business legitimate and clean, until the corruption surrounding him begins to put pressure on his livelihood. This trailer reveals a lot of the story, so watch out, but it's a very hard sell otherwise. The film stars Reza Akhlaghirad, Soudabeh Beizaee, and Nasim Adabi. I saw this film in Cannes and it's damn good, but also super depressing. It's a sad story of an honest man just trying to be good in an endlessly corrupt world. It's still worth it to watch a film from Iran.

Full International Trailer for Nimród Antal's 'The Whiskey Robber' Film

The Whiskey Robber Trailer

"Viszkis was one of the most famous bank robbers in Hungary. He drank whiskey before every robbing. This is his story." An official trailer has debuted for a film titled The Whiskey Robber, also known as The Whiskey Bandit or A Viszkis in Hungarian. This is the latest feature film from Hungarian-American filmmaker Nimród Antal, of Kontroll, Vacancy, Armored, and Predators in the past. The Whiskey Robber tells the true story of a Hungarian man named Attila Ambrus, also known as "Viszkis", who robbed 29 financial institutions in Budapest between 1993 and 1999. The only clue left behind at the crime scenes was the distinct aroma of whiskey. This looks like a fascinating, thrilling story of a man who just wanted to be happy and realized the only way to feel that was to collect money - mainly by robbing banks. Check this out.

A Prayer Before Dawn Trailer

"I've got not family, no money, just give me this one chance." A24 has debuted an intense, badass official trailer for a film titled A Prayer Before Dawn, shot by a French filmmaker in a real Thai prison starring real inmates. This 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, apparently based on a true story. The cast includes Vithaya Pansringarm, Panya Yimmumphai, Nicolas Shake, Pornchanok Mabklang, plus the real Billy Moore in a cameo role. This looks frickin' awesome! I can't believe I have missed this film until now. And A24's trailer is exciting, building up the intensity right until the last second. I actually can't wait to see this.

Daguerrotype Trailer

"You bend reality to suit yourself." An official US trailer has arrived for one of Japanese filmmaker Kiyoshi Kurosawa's films from last year, titled Daguerrotype (properly spelled - Daguerreotype). The film first premiered at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival, and has been awaiting a US release ever since. It goes under a few different titles - The Woman in the Silver Plate, or in France it's Le secret de la chambre noire, which translates roughly to The Secret of the Dark Room. French actor Tahir Rahim stars as a young apprentice in Paris, back in the days of daguerreotypes. He falls for the photographer's daughter, but they learn there's some kind of malevolent forces stopping them from escaping. The full cast includes Olivier Gourmet, Constance Rousseau, Mathieu Amalric, Malik Zidi, Valérie Sibilia. This seems like a strange film.

"You're almost a man Pio." IFC + Sundance Selects has debuted the official US trailer for A Ciambra, a film that played to great reviews in the Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The story follows a 14-year-old boy named Pio growing up in a Romani community in Southern Italy. Martin Scorsese loved the film so much, he joined as an executive producer and is presenting it in the US. The trailer starts out with a nice Scorsese quote about how the world in the film is so fully realized he felt like he was "living alongside its characters." Starring Pio Amato as Pio, plus Koudous Seihon & Damiano Amato. If you haven't already heard about this film, now is the time, and you'll probably hear more about this as it gets closer to the release. It won't open in the US until early 2018, but catch the trailer below for your first look.

Official Trailer for Japan's Live-Action Horror Adaptation 'Tokyo Ghoul'

Tokyo Ghoul Trailer

"Humans are no longer at the top of the food chain." A new US trailer has arrived online for the Japanese live-action adaptation of the manga series Tokyo Ghoul, which already opened in theaters in Japan back in July. The story is about a Tokyo college student who is attacked by a ghoul, a superpowered human who feeds on human flesh. He then discovers there's an entire race of ghouls and becomes a fugitive on the run, the "one and only existence who knows the two worlds." Starring Yû Aoi, Masataka Kubota, Shun'ya Shiraishi, Nozomi Sasaki, Fumika Shimizu, Yô Ôizumi, and others. One of the quotes in this trailer claims the film is the "best live-action anime adaptation to date." Not sure if that's true but it's worth a look.

Official Trailer for Brazilian Western 'O Matador' From Marcelo Galvão

O Matador Trailer

"When you're born to kill, you have to have an empty mind." Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for a Brazilian western titled O Matador, telling the story of Cabeleira, a feared killer living in the countryside of Pernambuco State in the 1840's. Diogo Morgado stars as Cabeleira, a gunman who goes looking for his missing mentor but ends up working for a ruthless French land baron as a hired assassin. The cast includes Maria de Medeiros, Will Roberts, Etienne Chicot, Phil Miler, Marat Descartes, Mel Lisboa, and Paulo Gorgulho. The trailer has another English title, simply just The Killer, but I like O Matador better. This definitely seems like a gritty western, with plenty of violence and slick cinematography. Watch below.

Badass Full UK Trailer for Gritty Japanese Action Thriller Film 'Re:Born'

Re:Born Trailer

"If you want my blood… come and get it!" Eureka Entertainment has debuted a new official UK trailer for a Japanese action thriller titled Re:Born, which premiered at a few genre film festivals last year. Re:Born features a hand-to-hand fighting technique called "Zero-Range Combat", originally developed by combat strategist and master fight instructor Yoshitaka Inagawa. The film's story follows a covert soldier with a mysterious past who decides to once again unleash the "beast inside of him" to stand up for what he cares about. The cast includes Tak Sakaguchi, Yura Kondo, Takumi Saitô, Mariko Shinoda, and Akio Ôtsuka. This trailer has hints at some of the badass action in this film, which looks like a lot of very close-range fighting, including inside a phone booth at one point. I don't know much about this, but it looks cool.

Eva Green in International Trailer for Polanski's 'Based on a True Story'

Based on a True Story Trailer

"You're in danger carrying this trust…" An official international trailer from France has debuted for the latest Roman Polanski drama titled Based on a True Story, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Most of the reviews were mixed to negative, despite two great performances, the story is redundant and bland and the film never amounts to much. Based on a True Story is about a famous writer, played by Emmanuelle Seigner, going through a tough time who hires a ghost writer to help her with her work. However, it turns out "L", played by Eva Green, is more of an obsessive admirer who actually has an ulterior motive. The full cast includes Vincent Perez, Damien Bonnard, Dominique Pinon, Noémie Lvovsky, and Camille Chamoux. This is worth watching just for Eva Green, but that's about all I can say.
