Close Encounters of the Third Kind Trailer

"What do you want?" "I just want to know that it's, it's really happening." Sony has released a full-length trailer for the upcoming 40th anniversary theatrical re-release of Steven Spielberg's Close Encounters of the Third Kind. The classic sci-fi film first hit theaters in December of 1977, two years after Jaws. This re-release was first teased with a "mysterious" air traffic control video that didn't explain what exactly it was teasing, but that was quickly solved. Now we know the film is returning to theaters again September 1st and if you've never seen on it on the big screen before, now is your chance. Don't miss it! Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Bob Balaban, François Truffaut, Warren Kemmerling, and Cary Guffey. This trailer definitely makes this movie seem like a true classic - feast your eyes on this.

James Franco in First Trailer for Bank Robbery Horror Film 'The Vault'

The Vault Trailer

"There's people down here!" What the heck is in the vault? FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for a film called The Vault, a bank robbery heist thriller that actually turns into some kind of weird horror film. The film stars Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood as two estranged sisters who must rob a bank in order to save their brother. But down in the vault, they discover something "truly evil" because "this is no ordinary bank." Uh oh. The cast includes James Franco, Scott Haze, Q'orianka Kilcher, Jeff Gum, and Clifton Collins Jr. This looks pretty weird, and not in a good way. Not sure I've ever heard of a bank heist horror movie before, but perhaps that is why they decided to make this. Check it out if you're curious.

Second Trailer for Crime Film 'Shot Caller' with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Shot Caller Trailer

"The only thing that matters is you getting home to your family in one piece." Saban Films has debuted another 60-second trailer for the intense crime thriller titled Shot Caller, from writer/director Ric Roman Waugh. Anyone still interested in this? The film tells the story of a family man who gets thrown in prison after a car accident. There he becomes a member of a prison gang in order to survive, and upon release is forced to orchestrate a major crime with a brutal rival gang on the streets of Southern California. Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jacob, with a cast including Lake Bell, Emory Cohen, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Donovan, Benjamin Bratt, and Holt McCallany. They're selling the intensity and hard-hitting brutality of this, but I'm not sure it's going to work. For me at least, I don't know what everyone else thinks.

Official Trailer for Mike White's Film 'Brad's Status' Starring Ben Stiller

Brad's Status Trailer

"Sometimes I worry that people think of me as a failure…" Amazon + Annapurna have debuted the official trailer for Mike White's new indie comedy Brad's Status, both written and directed by White. Ben Stiller stars as a father who takes his son, played by Austin Abrams, on a roadtrip around the East Coast to visit colleges. Along the way he reconnects with four old college friends who now seem to be living a much more glamorous, wealthy life compared to his own, and he starts to question his own choices. The cast includes Mike White, Jenna Fischer, Luke Wilson, Jemaine Clement, Michael Sheen, and Shazi Raja. I'm a big fan of Mike White, he's a talented original voice, and this looks amusing and also like the kind of film that will make me question my own life choices *gulp*. Looking forward to catching this film. Take a look.

First Trailer for Survival Revenge Film 'Iceman' About a Neolithic Man

Iceman Trailer

"They found a man, but not his story…" A trailer has debuted for a film titled Iceman, which is premiering at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland kicking off this week. This film could be described as an ancient Neolithic man version of The Revenant, about one man who angrily seeks revenge but must first survive the brutal Ötztals Alps. Jürgen Vogel stars as Kelab, with the full cast including Susanne Wuest, André Hennicke, Violetta Schurawlow, Sabin Tambrea, Martin Schneider, and an appearance by Franco Nero. The film uses an early version of the Rhaetic language. This actually looks damn good, with some impressive hair + beards and an intense story set entirely in the wilderness. I'm intrigued enough to watch.

First Teaser Trailer for Creepy Indie Thriller Film 'My Friend Dahmer'

My Friend Dahmer Trailer

"I'm just like anybody else…" FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for a creepy new indie thriller titled My Friend Dahmer, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. The film is based on an acclaimed graphic novel and tells the story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured by police. Before he became that killer, though, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. This is the true, haunting "story before that story" of Dahmer in high school. Ross Lynch plays Dahmer, and the cast includes Anne Heche, Alex Wolff, Dallas Roberts, Vincent Kartheiser, Miles Robbins. This is just a teaser, but but damn does it have some unsettling moments in it, which is the whole point of the film. Lynch's performance looks superb.

Official Trailer for Sundance Doc 'Dolores' About a Legendary Activist

Dolores Movie Trailer

"The FBI knew how dangerous Dolores was." PBS Distribution has unveiled the first official trailer for a documentary titled Dolores, profiling the life and achievements of American activist Dolores Huerta. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and has gone on to play at numerous other festivals including Hot Docs and AFI Docs. Her career as an activist began alongside Cesar Chavez and, at age 87, Huerta still continues to advocate for the common good. Described as an "energetic, sweeping story" about the "iconic labor leader and feminist pioneer", the film explains her influence, impact – and why you probably have never heard her name. This definitely does look like a very energetic, inspiring, and hopeful documentary about one remarkable, driven woman and her innate ability to encourage people to speak up.

Nicholas Hoult Stars as Salinger in First Trailer for 'Rebel in the Rye'

Rebel in the Rye Trailer

"Are you willing to devote your life to telling stories?" IFC Films has debuted an official trailer for the film Rebel in the Rye, an indie drama which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film stars Nicholas Hoult as famed author J.D. Salinger, telling the story of his early years, his time fighting in WWII, and his pursuit of a love interest. It also shows how the success of his novel, Catcher in the Rye, turned him into a recluse, staying out of the public for the rest of his life after it was published in 1951. The cast includes Zoey Deutch as Oona O'Neill, Kevin Spacey, Lucy Boynton, Sarah Paulson, Victor Garber, Hope Davis, Amy Rutberg, James Urbaniak, Celeste Arias, and Eric Bogosian. This received dismal reviews at Sundance, and not so surprisingly the trailer doesn't look that great either.

Michael Abbott Jr in Official Trailer for Indie Film 'In the Radiant City'

In the Radiant City Trailer

"There's no such thing as evil, son. There's just people doing good and bad to each other." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for indie drama In the Radiant City, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The film is the feature directorial debut of Kentucky native Rachel Lambert, and it's set in Kentucky, about a man who returns home only to find his family is still haunted by the stigma of a murder his brother committed years ago. The cast includes Michael Abbott Jr in the lead role, along with Marin Ireland, Madisen Beaty, Celia Weston, Jon Michael Hill, Deirdre O'Connell, and Paul Sparks. This film is produced by fellow filmmaker Jeff Nichols, and it also has one of the best posters this year (as seen below).

Beach Rats Trailer

"I don't really know what I like…" Neon has unveiled the official full-length trailer for indie drama Beach Rats, the second feature from filmmaker Eliza Hittman, following up her debut It Felt Like Love. This originally premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January, where it won the Best Director award. Newcomer Harris Dickinson plays Frankie, an aimless youth on the outer edges of Brooklyn, struggling to escape his bleak home life. He spends his summer balancing time between his delinquent group of friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online. The cast includes Nicole Flyus, Frank Hakaj, Kate Hodge and Neal Huff. Despite some good reviews, this looks like pretentious art house drivel to me.

Thor: Ragnarok Trailer

"So much has happened since I last saw you! I lost my hammer…" Indeed, so much has happened! Let's find out! Disney + Marvel have revealed the new full-length trailer for Thor: Ragnarok, the next sequel in the Thor series, at Comic-Con today during their Hall H presentation. It looks like hiring Taika Waititi to direct this is one of the best decisions Marvel has ever made, as this looks seriously badass and entertaining in 100 different ways. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a seriously kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from Asgard before including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander. I'm insanely excited for this, it looks so frickin' good, even all the sci-fi stuff looks like it works perfectly. I'm so there opening night. Between this and Black Panther, Marvel is lookin' really good.
