Official Trailer for Kaitlin McLaughlin's Indie Thriller 'Hostile Border'

Hostile Border Trailer

"Are you, or aren't you a criminal? There is no in between." Samuel Goldwyn Films has released a trailer for the indie thriller Hostile Border, co-directed by Michael Dwyer & Kaitlin McLaughlin. Veronica Sixtos stars as Pocha, a crafty undocumented immigrant living in the US who is sent back to Mexico, but struggles to cope on the other side of the border. The full cast includes Roberto Urbina, Julio Cedillo, Jorge A. Jimenez, Jesse Garcia and Maria del Carmen Farias. This film was originally titled Pocha: Manifest Destiny at the Los Angeles Film Festival before being renamed to Hostile Border, described as a slow burning crime thriller mixed with a western. This actually looks better than you're probably expecting.

First Poster for Disney's 'Pete's Dragon' Remake from David Lowery

Pete's Dragon

What a Brazzle Dazzle Day! Disney has unveiled a teaser poster for director David Lowery's new remake of Pete's Dragon. The original Pete's Dragon film is a Disney classic from 1977 featuring a mix of live-action and animation, and this new movie will also be a hybrid. My first thought is that this reminds me of Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are, in a warm and fuzzy way, not a bad way. This reimagining takes us on an adventure of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliott, who just so happens to be a dragon. Sounds like fun. Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence and Oscar winner Robert Redford. The first trailer debuts on ABC this Sunday, so check back.

First Teaser Poster Revealed for Shane Black's New 'Predator' Sequel

Predator Sequel

"Here we go again, bro." Whoa! Where did this come from? No release date or any solid confirmation on filming, yet the first poster is now out. An early teaser poster for the upcoming Predator movie has been unveiled on the official Predator Facebook page (found via SlashFilm). According to early details, this film is actually a direct sequel to the original 1987 sci-fi feature starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The poster only says "You'll never see him coming" and lists the title as The Predator, which perhaps means we'll only see one Predator this time around again. I'm definitely curious to know more about this. Check this out in full.

A Hologram for the King

We've been waiting to see something for this one! Roadside Attractions is releasing Tom Tykwer's new film A Hologram for the King and has set an April release date. But we still have yet to see a trailer or much else. The film has been scheduled for release on April 22nd, and along with that news a batch of first look photos (and a new German poster for now) have been unveiled. A Hologram for the King stars Tom Hanks as a failed American businessman who flies to Saudi Arabia to try and sell his idea to a wealthy monarch, based on the book by Dave Eggers. Sounds good. We'll be keeping an eye on this one leading up to release.

Have You Seen Her? - Four Gorgeous Posters for Pixar's 'Finding Dory'

Pixar's Finding Dory

Can you help us find Dory? Where did she go this time? Disney-Pixar have unveiled a gorgeous set of four teaser posters for Finding Dory, the upcoming sequel to the beloved animated adventure Finding Nemo. This animated sequel sees Dory, voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, getting lost on a search for her parents, and Marlin, voiced by Albert Brooks, joining with Nemo to head back out and save her. We're still waiting to see more footage and get a better sense of the story aside from the original details (see paragraph below) but otherwise, I'm very excited for this just because I love all the different fish and animals found in the ocean. These are stunningly simple posters. I love the last one (with the sea anemone) the most. Take a look below.

Ben Wheatley's 'High-Rise' Film Has the Best Posters So Far This Year

High-Rise Poster

Leave the real world behind. Even though it's barely a week into February, I'm impressed by the amount of high quality marketing material we've seen this year so far. While I must acknowledge that the marketing for Deadpool has been brilliant across the board, and this new poster for Allegiant is worth pointing out, the best poster art released this year so far is for Ben Wheatley's High-Rise. The film already premiered last year and played at a few festivals (read Jeremy's review or Amanda's review) but has yet to be given a US release date, even though it opens in the UK in a few months. These posters are promoting the UK release, which is perhaps the explanation behind why they're so unique. View both High-Rise posters in full below.

We'll follow up once the trailer premieres - until then, take a look.

Poster + TV Spot for Coen Brothers' 'Hail, Caesar!' Arriving February

Hail, Caesar! TV Spot

"Uncovering Hollywood's biggest secret, will take Hollywood's biggest actors." Universal has debuted a new TV spot for the upcoming Coen Brothers film Hail, Caesar!, starring George Clooney as actor Baird Whitlock. This adds to the first TV spot and first trailer for the film, setting up a plot involving Whitlock getting kidnapped. The cast includes Josh Brolin, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand and Jonah Hill. In addition to the TV spot, a new poster appeared online and although it looks official, it may just be fan-made, though we've added it below anyway since it looks so cool. I'm glad we're seeing even more marketing arriving for this film, since the release is coming up soon.

Check Out These Three Fan-Made Posters for Nolan's 'Dunkirk' Film

Dunkirk Poster

In Nolan We Trust! It has been just over 24 hours since Warner Bros officially announced details about Christopher Nolan's next film, a WWII-set action-thriller titled Dunkirk, to be filmed in 65mm. The news arrived with an announcement from the Mayor of Dunkirk, France discussing a major movie production shooting there in May/June next year. Loyal Nolan fans are already so excited they've whipped up the first three fan-made posters for a project we know hardly anything about. These posters are all designed around the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940, known as Operation Dynamo, referencing events and imagery from WWII. They're still very cool to see, and I love that fans are so excited by the film already that they've made this art.

IMAX Drops an Awesome Poster + Teaser for the 'Deadpool' Movie

Deadpool

Size matters. At least when it comes to Deadpool's team. IMAX has unveiled this awesome new poster for the upcoming Deadpool movie, starring Ryan Reynolds as the fourth-wall-breakin' Merc with a Mouth. The marketing for this movie has been absolutely brilliant, fully embracing the mock-everything attitude of Deadpool himself. This IMAX poster (and a short new trailer below) continues to follow that trend by going overboard on absurdity and mockery, and it's perfect. I can't think of any other movie or character that this poster would work for, and it's crazy they actually approved this. Makes me look forward to this even more.

Check Out These Badass New Posters for Paul Feig's 'Ghostbusters'

Ghostbusters

Who You Gonna Call?! Sony has unveiled four new teaser posters for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters, which is starting to look like it might actually be pretty damn good. The posters feature the four new Ghostbusters each with a different "weapon", including proton packs for most of them. It stars: Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, and Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert. I really love the look of these posters, I'm so glad they're being bold and fully embracing the badassness of this movie, with the black background and colorful highlights they really stand out. I dig it. The goggles are a nice touch with McKinnon, but where's Wiig's weapon? Hopefully we'll see a trailer soon.
