New 60-Second Trailer for 'The Mercy' with Colin Firth & Rachel Weisz

The Mercy New Trailer

"I can't go on, and I can't go home… so where else is there?" StudioCanal UK has revealed a new 60-second trailer for the indie drama The Mercy, which tells the story of a humble man who takes an unfinished boat on a race around the world for an adventure. We posted the first UK trailer last fall and it looks mildly enjoyable, with some inspirational moments. This film tells the triumphant, inspiring, incredible true story of Donald Crowhurst, an amateur sailor who decided to take on the task of competing in the 1968 Golden Globe Race - sailing around the world solo. Colin Firth stars as Crowhurts, and the cast includes Rachel Weisz as his wife Clare, along with David Thewlis, Jonathan Bailey, Tim Downie, Andrew Buchan, Genevieve Gaunt, Adrian Schiller. I'm not really into this one too much, but it might be worth a look.

Judy Greer in First Trailer for Indie Film 'Adventures in Public School'

Adventures in Public School Trailer

"Forget about school, it's time to party." An official trailer has debuted online for an Canadian indie comedy film titled Adventures in Public School, formerly known as Public Schooled when it premiered at last year's Toronto Film Festival. The film is about a socially awkward home-schooled kid named Liam who forces his way into attending public school against his "suffocating but loving" mother's wishes. The talented Judy Greer stars as the mother, and the kid is played by Daniel Doheny. The cast also includes Siobhan Williams, Russell Peters, Grace Park, Andrew McNee, Alex Barima, Andrew Herr, and Eva Day. I don't recall hearing much about this from TIFF last year, but it seems like it might be a fun coming-of-age comedy about parenting and school life. I like that Greer seems to be having as much crazy fun as her son is.

First Trailer for 'Pick of the Litter' Dog Documentary from Slamdance

Pick of the Litter Doc Trailer

"They have to do everything correctly 100% of the time." Aw, puppies!! An official trailer has debuted for a film titled Pick of the Litter, a documentary about puppies. No, really. The film is actually about the process of choosing the right dog to be trained as a Guide Dog for the blind. I feel like there have been films made about this before (a few from Japan perhaps) but why not another one? Everyone loves dogs! At least I do. The documentary, from filmmakers Don Hardy Jr. & Dana Nachman, follows dogs as they are trained for two years. It also spends time with the Guide Dog community and introduces us to some of the people who end up getting these dogs as their companion and best friend. This actually looks adorable, of course, and I'm curious to see it. This is premiering at the Slamdance Film Festival this month, surprisingly enough.

Official UK Trailer for Exceptional Doc 'Makala' About a Charcoal Maker

Makala Documentary Trailer

"If you don't pay, you stay here." Dogwoof has debuted the full UK trailer for an exceptional documentary titled Makala, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year and also played at the Toronto & London Film Festivals. I saw this in London and loved it, writing a rave review, hoping that I could convince a few people to check it out. Made by French filmmaker Emmanuel Gras, Makala follows one man from Congo (aka Democratic Republic of the Congo) who makes charcoal on his own then carries it on a bike to a nearby city to sell. As I said in my review: "it is one of the most engaging looks at humanity you can find on screen all year." It's a visceral, eye-opening experience following one man, that's the power of great cinema.

New International Trailer for Ava DuVernay's Sci-Fi 'A Wrinkle in Time'

A Wrinkle in Time Trailer

"Dad was right - it really is possible." Disney has revealed a new international trailer for Ava DuVernary's adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time, based on the novel by Madeleine L'Engle. We've already seen multiple trailers and a TV spot for this, but one more trailer can't hurt, especially since it looks crazy cool. The sci-fi fantasy follows three people - Meg, her brother, and her friend - who are sent into space by three beings in hopes of finding her missing scientist father. The impressive ensemble cast includes Chris Pine, Reese Witherspoon, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Zach Galifianakis, Oprah Winfrey, Bellamy Young, Mindy Kaling, Rowan Blanchard, Levi Miller, André Holland, Daniel MacPherson, Will McCormack, Deric McCabe, along with Storm Reid as Meg. Looking forward to this, in theaters soon.

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.
