New Teaser for Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Has a Hidden Secret Code

Ready Player One Preview

"It's a good time to escape." With the big football game this weekend, Warner Bros has debuted a new TV spot for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One. Don't forget this movie is due out in theaters in just a few months, so there's not much of a wait now. The new preview also includes a hidden secret QR code which links to a hidden video that is narrated by Spielberg and author Ernest Cline, with some unseen footage. The more we see from this, the more excited I get. Young actor Tye Sheridan stars as Wade Watts, known in the Oasis gaming world as "Parzival". The full cast includes Mark Rylance as the game's creator, James Halliday, as well as T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Letitia Wright, and Kae Alexander. You can watch the newest TV spot below, and also check out the featurette.

Teaser Trailer for Crazy Sundance Midnight Film 'Assassination Nation'

Assassination National Trialer

"Something is going down in Salem…" This is going to be wild. A teaser trailer has debuted for a film titled Assassination Nation, premiering at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival at Midnight tonight. This is the film that hooked me based on its very short, weird single-sentence synopsis that it's a "1000% true story" about "how the quiet, all-American town of Salem, absolutely lost its mind." We all know Salem is where the infamous witch hunt took places in the 1800s, but this one is set in modern times, with the freaky concept of: what if all of our text messages and photos and everything were released to the public for anyone to see. The cast of rowdy youngsters includes Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, Abra, Anika Noni Rose, Colman Domingo, Maude Apatow, Kelvin Harrison Jr., with Bill Skarsgard, Joel McHale, and Bella Thorne. This is a wild trailer and doesn't reveal much, but I'm still excited to see this. Have fun.

First Trailer for Brazilian Teen Drama 'Rust' Playing at Sundance 2018

Rust Trailer

"I just want to disappear." The first official trailer has debuted for an indie drama from Brazil titled Rust, which is currently premiering at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival this month in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition category. Directed by Aly Muritiba, the film deals with a group of high school teens and a case of sexual abuse that gets even worse when a private video leaks to the entire school. The film specifically focuses on the brewing relationship between teens Tati and Renet, as well as their home lives. The film's cast is lead by Giovanni de Lorenzi, Tifanny Dopke, Enrique Diaz, and Clarissa Kiste. This looks like a very strong drama from Brazil addressing a very important topic of the times - and how everything gets even crazier when it's spread among teens in high school. Seems like it's worth catching at the festival.

New US Trailer for Warwick Thornton's Outback Drama 'Sweet Country'

Sweet Country Trailer

"Why did you run, Mr. Kelly?" Samuel Goldwyn has unveiled an official US trailer for an Australian racism drama titled Sweet Country, from acclaimed director Warwick Thornton (of Samson & Delilah). This first premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and played at the Toronto and London Film Festivals. It also plays at the Sundance Film Festival this month hitting pretty much every big fest. Sweet Country takes place in the Northern Territory of Australia nearly 100 years ago, telling the story of an Aboriginal stockman who shoots a white man and is taken to trial. Hamilton Morris stars, with Sam Neill, Ewen Leslie, Bryan Brown, Thomas M. Wright, and Matt Day. I saw this already in Venice and I liked it, but it's not my cup of tea - way too dry and slow for me. But other critics seem to be loving it, so it may still be worth your time.

Danny McBride in 'Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home' Trailer

Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home

"It's time to live up to the family name." Wait, what? Is this real? It can't be, this has to be a joke. A trailer has debuted online for a supposed sequel to the classic Australian comedy Crocodile Dundee, released in 1986 starring Paul Hogan. Everyone knows this one, right? This new film is titled Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home and stars Danny McBride as the new Dundee. Apparently he's the son of the original Dundee? Named Brian Dundee. And he's returning home? This movie appeared out of nowhere and there's no official information available anywhere yet - except for an article from People magazine and an official website with sparse details. Which makes me wonder if this is some elaborate hoax for a new comedy series or TV show or movie or something else that Danny McBride is involved in. My guess is this might be a viral Australia tourism kind of thing, but the trailer is weirdly amusing and worth wathcing below anyway.

Official Full-Length Trailer for 'Super Troopers 2' Pits USA vs Canada

Super Troopers 2 Trailer

"They've been waiting for a second chance… waiting for their country to need them again…" Damn Yanks! Crazy Canadians! Fox Searchlight has debuted the new full-length trailer for the long-awaited sequel Super Troopers 2, hitting theaters on April 20th this spring, because of course it opens on 4/20. Makes total sense. This stoner comedy sequels picks up where the first film (released back in 2001) left off and follows the Super Troopers who are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in a border area between the US and Canada. Pretty much everyone is back: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske, Brian Cox, Lynda Carter, and Marisa Coughlan. The newcomers this time include Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rob Lowe, Tyler Labine, Will Sasso, and Hayes MacArthur. As expected, this looks totally nuts and ridiculous, but still hilarious. Light up that blunt, kick back, and enjoy.

First Fun Trailer for Inspiring Doc 'Science Fair' Premiering at Sundance

Science Fair Trailer

"I know how to communicate ideas - that's really why I win." A trailer has debuted for a documentary titled Science Fair, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival - which kicks off today in Park City, Utah. As the title indicates, this is a doc about going to the big "science fair" - specifically the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (or Intel ISEF). The film profiles nine different high school students from all around the world who must "navigate rivalries, setbacks, and hormones on their quest to win the international science fair. Only one can be named 'Best in Fair.'" This looks like a very fun, inspiring, enjoyable look at the world of science fairs. It reminds me of October Sky, one of my favorite films involving a science fair. I'm most interested to see the kids from foreign countries who make it in, seems like that's the bigger challenge.

Second Trailer for 'Tomb Raider' Starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft

Tomb Raider Movie

"What are you doing here, Lara?" Warner Bros has released the second trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie, based on the popular video game series about adventurer Lara Croft. This trailer is a bit better than the first one, thankfully, so fire it up and take a look. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft, playing a young woman living in London who decides to travel to a mysterious island in an attempt to figure out what happened to her eccentric adventurer father. The cast includes Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Alexandre Willaume. This new trailer actually promises an entertaining movie, with some badass action and thrilling mystery. Yes, it's a big Hollywood movie but at least it doesn't seem like it's going to be a disaster. I'm honestly really looking forward to this now. Dive in.

Odeya Rush & Michael Caine in First Trailer for Comedy 'Dear Dictator'

Dear Dictator Trailer

"Sometimes I feel like you're the only one who gets me." Cinedigm has released the trailer for an amusing indie comedy titled Dear Dictator, which has a goofy, perhaps ridiculous premise. Michael Caine plays a British-Caribbean dictator who is forced to leave his island nation. He decides to move in and hide out with his "pen pal" (is this the 90s?), a young rebellious teenage girl, as played by Odeya Rush (from The Giver, Goosebumps, Almost Friends, Lady Bird). Somehow they make this work in a weird way, and of course he helps teach her how to "start a revolution and overthrow the 'mean girls' in her high school." It's not as bad as it sounds, but it also doesn't look that good either. But, Michael Caine! He's always great, right? The cast includes Jason Biggs, Katie Holmes, Seth Green, and Jordyn Cavros. Check it out if you're intrigued.

Haunted by a Vengeful Vietnamese Ghost in 'The Housemaid' Trailer

The Housemaid Trailer

"This has happened before… History is repeating itself." IFC Midnight has released an official trailer for a Vietnamese horror thriller titled The Housemaid, from director Derek Nguyen. Not to be confused with the Korean romantic thriller The Housemaid, this The Housemaid is about a ghost who haunts a mansion in Vietnam in the 1950s where a housemaid works. Kate Nhung stars as Linh, and she works at a crumbling rubber plantation run by a French officer. There's some eroticism, and similarities to the other Housemaid (which is a remake anyway) but this looks much scarier. The film's cast includes Jean-Michel Richaud, Rosie Fellner, Kim Xuan, and Svitlana Kovalenko. Aside from being a supernatural horror, this film also "confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam's colonial past." This trailer definitely is freaky, so watch out.

First Trailer for 'Ghostland' Horror from French Director Pascal Laugier

Ghostland Trailer

"Are you going to let me die alone?" The official French trailer has debuted for the latest horror film from French director Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), titled Ghostland or also Incident in a Ghost Land. The story is about a house where a woman had to fend off intruders to save her daughters. Years later, the two of them grow up with completely different personalities, still traumatized by the events. When they all reunite at the house once again, strange events began to occur. I like the tagline on the second poster: "you really thought you've been scared before?" Oh damn. The horror film stars Crystal Reed, Taylor Hickson, Rob Archer, Emilia Jones, Adam Hurtig, Anastasia Phillips, Mylène Farmer, and Alicia Johnston. The film opens first in France, then should hit US theaters sometime in the spring. Take a peek if you dare.

New International Trailer for RV Roadtrip Comedy 'The Leisure Seeker'

The Leisure Seeker Trailer

"We've had a lot of wonderful trips in this ole rust bucket." A new official international trailer from the UK has debuted for the indie roadtrip comedy The Leisure Seeker. This film actually premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals last fall, mostly because it's directed by a veteran Italian filmmaker named Paolo Virzì. The Leisure Seeker stars two great actors - Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland - who go on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call "The Leisure Seeker" as a runaway couple. The film's cast includes Christian McKay, Janel Moloney, and Kirsty Mitchell. The emotional side of the story is that Sutherland's character is losing his memory as they get older, and this may be the last vacation they'll remember together. It received mostly bad reviews at festivals, but looks like it might appeal to a few folks.
