Linda Cardellini in First Trailer for Kidnapping Comedy 'Austin Found'

Austin Found Trailer

"She's what they call nowadays a 'mean girl'." Gravitas Ventures has released an official trailer for the film Austin Found, a comedy about a fame-obsessed single mother who tries to pull off a fake kidnapping in order to get attention. Actress Linda Cardellini stars as Leanne, who is bored with her "unglamorously average lifestyle" and recruits her ex-boyfriend and his ex-con friend to put this plan together and have her daughter go missing for a few months. The cast includes Urusula Parker as her daughter Patty, along with Kirsten Schaal, Craig Robinson, Skeet Ulrich, Patrick Warburton, Jon Daly, Chris Parnell, and Matt Jones. This looks crazy stupid, but perhaps that is the point, it's a comedy about how stupid people can be sometimes all in pursuit of fame and fortune and glory. But I recommend Ingrid Goes West instead.

New Red Band Trailer for 'The House' with Will Ferrell & Amy Poehler

The House Trailer

"You're never going to believe what's in the next room." Warner Bros has debuted a new red band trailer for the wild comedy titled The House, where two parents decide to turn their home into an underground, illegal casino to make enough money to send their daughter to college. It's a fun concept for a comedy. Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler star as the parents, with Nick Kroll, Jason Mantzoukas, Allison Tolman, Ryan Simpkins, Sam Richardson, Rob Huebel and Michaela Watkins. This trailer is a red band trailer mostly for language, and one bloody scene at the end, and that's about it. Unfortunately this doesn't look better than the first trailer, but I'm still looking forward to seeing this anyway. Maybe it'll be enjoyable.

Another Official US Trailer for Netflix's Release of Comedy 'Mindhorn'

Mindhorn US Trailer

"Surely things aren't that bad?" Netflix has debuted an official US trailer for their upcoming release of the British cop spoof movie titled Mindhorn. This already opened in UK cinemas earlier this month, and first premiered at the London Film Festival last year, which must mean it's actually way better than expected. Mindhorn is about a washed-up actor named Richard Thorncroft, played by comedian Julian Barratt, who played "Mindhorn" on a 1980s detective show. He has a bionic eye that allows him to literally "see the truth", which is why he has the eye patch. Set in the current day, the film is about Mindhorn returning to the Isle of Man to take on the job of working as a real private detective. This also stars Andrea Riseborough, Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, Simon Farnaby, David Schofield, Nicholas Farrell, Simon Callow, and Steve Coogan. It looks quite entertaining, hopefully the entire film is as funny as this trailer is. Enjoy.

Final Red Band Trailer for the 'Baywatch' Movie Lets Loose on F-Bombs

Baywatch Movie Trailer

"Some fishy s*!t is happening on our beach…" Paramount has dropped one last trailer for the Baywatch movie, hitting theaters in just a few weeks. This final trailer is a red band trailer but only for foul language, no nudity or anything else (since there isn't actually any in the movie). But if you want to get a real sense of what this R-rated summer comedy is like, then watch this. Even though it does show a bit too much of the movie, so watch out. Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson star as two feuding, hunky Baywatch lifeguards; with Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Pamela Anderson, Ilfenesh Hadera, Charlotte McKinney, Kelly Rohrbach, Hannibal Buress, plus of course David Hasselhoff. Also note, this is now being released on Thursday, May 25th, and not Friday. In case you really need to see it one day early.

Trailer for Horror Comedy 'Another Evil' About a Ghost Exterminator

Another Evil Trailer

"Meet Os. A Straight Up Ghost Assassin." Dark Sky Films has released a trailer for a horror comedy titled Another Evil, about a wacky ghost exterminator named Os who is hired to get rid of a ghost in a summer home. Steve Zissis (from "Togetherness") stars as Dan, the guy who moves into his family's vacation home and encounters a ghost. The cast includes Jennifer Irwin, Mark Proksch as Os, Dan Bakkedahl, Dax Flame, Steve Little, and Mariko Munro. This looks very fun, I'm glad that we finally get to see another comedic take on haunted house and ghost exterminators (one of the only other ones I can think of is The Frighteners). It feels like this would be a nice double feature with What We Do in the Shadows. Have fun.

Must Watch: Totally Awesome Horror Comedy Short Film 'Spooky Club'

Spooky Club Short Film

Spooky Club rules!! This is one of my favorite shorts we've discovered this month. Spooky Club is a horror comedy short film made by filmmaker brothers Joe and Lloyd Stas, about a "Spooky Club" group of friends. The short was released today in memory of horror icon Vincent Price, who died 23 years ago today. The Spooky Club recruits a new member and decides to go retrieve Price's stolen skull to cremate it just like he wanted. This is really just a totally awesome short - from the way it starts out, to the goofiness of it and the wacky mission to steal Price's skull, to the rock 'n roll vibe of the whole thing. I love the performances from the actors; it's funny, it's witty, and it's a perfect horror short film to put you in the Halloween mood. Enjoy.

Funny Short Film 'Otherhalf' About a Man Breaking Up with Himself

Otherhalf Short Film

"I don't know, I guess we've been drifting apart for a while… I'm more of a homebody, and my other half's more outdoorsy…" Framestore Pictures has released an amusing short film called Otherhalf, from writer & director Ben West, who usually does commercials work for Framestore. Starring Eric Normington and Jayme Lynn Evans, the short is about a man who breaks up with the "other half" of his body, but through his experience finds out more about what makes him whole. Aside from being funny, this is actually kind of a charming short with an honest side. And it's completely original - I've never seen anything like this. Enjoy.

Watch This: Comedic Short 'Life's a Bitch' Directed by François Jaros

Life's a Bitch Short Film

Life's a bitch. Yes it is. This amusing must see short film is from French director François Jaros and it first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and Telluride Film Festival in 2014. It's a comedic look at how great and how terrible life is, covering all the ups and downs of one man's adulthood in just over 5 minutes. Life's a Bitch isn't the most creative short film I've ever seen, but it is genuinely funny and considerably authentic. The main guy in this, played by Guillaume Lambert, also wrote the screenplay. If you need a reminder that life isn't always perfect every single day, or if you just need a good laugh, then fire it up below.

Find Out What Thor Was Up to During 'Civil War' in Comic-Con Video

Thor Comic-Con Video

"So, I needed some 'me' time, and I came to Australia and that's when I moved in with Daryl!" This is genius. Marvel Studios has officially released the hilarious video that first debuted in Hall H at Comic-Con this year showing what Thor was up to during Captain America: Civil War. If you saw that film, you may have noticed Thor was missing from action while things were getting crazy. To answer that question, they made this "The Office"-style video featuring Chris Hemsworth in character as Thor discussing his time hanging out with regular people down in Australia. He even meets up with Mark Ruffalo (aka Bruce Banner) at one point and tries to get in touch with Tony Stark via "electronic letter". Gotta love this. Enjoy.

Watch: Fantastic Fest Trailer for New Zealand Comedy Series 'Terry Teo'

Terry Teo Trailer

"In 2016, danger has a new name." We're breaking our own rules to bring you a trailer for a TV series, but this deserves the attention. Terry Teo is a 2016 reboot of a vintage 80's TV show from New Zealand, this version directed by the guy who made the film Housebound. The show stars Kahn Wes as the titular "Terry Teo", a "savvy teenager" who uses his street smarts to solve crime. This looks way better than it sounds, and the humor is spot on. The other reason we're featuring this is that it's actually premiering (in the US) at one of our favorite festivals - Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX. If you've enjoyed any of films by Taika Waititi, then you need to take a look at this. The series is actually rated PG in New Zealand but it still looks like crazy fun.

Another Trailer for Hilariously Vulgar Indie Comedy 'War on Everyone'

War on Everyone Trailer

"Utterly irresponsible." A new UK trailer has debuted for the absurd, vulgar and hilarious indie comedy War on Everyone, from Calvary director John Michael McDonagh. We featured a red band teaser trailer for this a few months ago, but it didn't fully dive into the humor the way this new trailer does. Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña star as two corrupt cops from New Mexico who end up battling against a British Lord, played by Theo James, who comes to town for his own piece of the pie. This is one of those wild indie comedies that arrived out of nowhere and will earn a huge cult following, so jump on it now before everyone else discovers it. And don't worry, this is definitely R-rated and totally worth seeing.Enjoy.

Watch: Theatrical US Trailer for Danish Comedy Sequel 'Klown Forever'

Klown Forever Trailer

"You don't know where its tongue's been." Drafthouse Films has unveiled the full theatrical US trailer for the film Klown Forever, the sequel to Danish comedy Klovn: The Movie about two awkward friends who go on a canoe trip together. This next one reunites co-stars and best friends Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, who take a trip to Los Angeles this time around to seek fame and glory in Hollywood. Casper decides to pursue a solo career in the City of Angels, but Frank follows along in hopes of getting his friend back, and of course there's tons of shenanigans along the way. You know this is solid since Drafthouse Films is releasing it, though it might also be good to catch up with the first Klown before continuing on. Have fun.
