Adorable Full-Length Trailer for WB's New Panda IMAX Movie 'Pandas'

Pandas Trailer

"Qian Qian was born in captivity, so learning to thrive in the wild won't be easy." Aw, aren't they so cute and cuddly?! Warner Bros has debuted another new full-length trailer for the IMAX documentary titled Pandas, a nature documentary about everyone's favorite black & white bears. Filmed with IMAX cameras and being presented in IMAX & IMAX 3D, this takes place mostly around Chengdu Panda Base in China. It follows a few researchers and documents the re-introduction of a panda into the wild. This is made by the filmmakers behind the other nature docs Born to be Wild and Island of Lemurs: Madagascar, and features a score composed by Mark Mothersbaugh (of Thor: Ragnarok). As you can hear in this trailer, the movie also features narration by Kristen Bell, talking about the panda program and these wonderful creatures. Anyone want to bet this is going to be a huge hit? Pandas is rated G (oh yes!), and opens in theaters in April.

Geoffrey Rush & Armie Hammer in Official US Trailer for 'Final Portrait'

Final Portrait Trailer

"Your whole life can be swallowed up…" Sony Pictures Classics has debuted a new official US trailer for the film Final Portrait, which was one of my favorites from last year's Berlin Film Festival. Glad it's finally hitting US theaters soon. The film stars Geoffrey Rush as accomplished Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti, an eccentric painter and sculptor who lived in Paris for the the last years of his life. The story is all about his friendship with an American journalist named James Lord, played by Armie Hammer, who visited in the 1960s. Giacometti asked Lord to sit down for a portrait, to be finished in only a few days, but it ends up going on and on for months - his final portrait. This also stars Clémence Poésy and Tony Shalhoub. I wrote in my review from last year's Berlinale: "Rush gives such an outstanding performance, it's compelling and thoroughly enjoyable to watch him." I still recommend giving this one a watch when you can, it's good.

Official US Trailer for 'Ismael's Ghosts' Starring Cotillard & Gainsbourg

Ismael's Ghosts Trailer

"You no longer exist." Magnolia Pictures has debuted a new US trailer for the upcoming theatrical release of Arnaud Desplechin's Ismael's Ghost, which was the opening night film at last year's Cannes Film Festival. Despite this honor, the film received mostly mediocre reviews and it's nothing special. It stars Mathieu Amalric as a filmmaker named Ismael, who is just about to begin shooting his next feature. However, his long lost former lover suddenly shows up out of nowhere, freaking him out, sending him into a mental "tailspin". Marion Cotillard plays his former lover, and Charlotte Gainsbourg plays his current lover, who also freaks out. The cast also includes Louis Garrel, Alba Rohrwacher, Hippolyte Girardot, and Samir Guesmi. I saw this in Cannes and forgot about it fairly quickly, even though I really do like the cast.

Halle Berry & Daniel Craig in First Official Trailer for L.A. Drama 'Kings'

Kings Trailer

"Best thing to do in any situation - is do what you want to do." The Orchard has debuted the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Kings, the latest feature from acclaimed Turkish filmmaker Deniz Gamze Ergüven (of the film Mustang previously - which you should watch ASAP if you haven't seen it yet). Set in Los Angeles in 1992 right before the infamous L.A. riots erupted, the film is about a family in South Central. Halle Berry stars as the mom, with Daniel Craig, and a full cast including Issac Ryan Brown, Lamar Johnson, Kaalan "KR" Walker, and Rachel Hilson. This film already premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and arrives in limited theaters this April. It looks like an engaging, heartfelt drama with some very emotional moments. This seems like a good double feature with Justin Chon's Gook. Take a look.

'The Force of Sound' Doc Trailer About the Sound Design in 'Star Wars'

The Force of Sound Trailer

"Sound is not just a layer we put on top of the storytelling, it is the storytelling." ABC News has unveiled a trailer for a new short documentary titled The Force of Sound, a behind-the-scenes look at sound design in Star Wars - specifically focusing on Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is nominated for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing at the Academy Awards. The film takes viewers inside Skywalker Ranch to learn about how they craft all of the remarkable sounds in the Star Wars movies, from the lightsabers to BB-8 to the animals and creatures and everything else. The documentary is available to stream online for free starting today, Tuesday, so if you want to watch it after catching this trailer you don't have to wait at all.

First International Trailer for Christian Petzold's 'Transit' from Berlinale

Transit Movie Trailer

Hot on the heels of its premiere in-competition at the Berlin Film Festival this weekend, a trailer has arrived for the new film by German filmmaker Christian Petzold (Jerichow, Barbara, Phoenix) titled Transit. This film is set in modern times even though the story is actually based in WWII, with various people trying to escape from France on ships to America or Mexico. Franz Rogowski stars a man fleeing Germany, who ends up stuck in Marseille, encountering others trying to escape and get out of Europe, they all need transit papers for safe passage. The full cast includes Paula Beer, Godehard Giese, Lilien Batman, Maryam Zaree, Barbara Auer, and Matthias Brandt. I saw this at Berlinale and it's a great film, commenting on contemporary issues with immigration through a story from WWII - read my full review here. Watch below.

Toni Collette & Matthew Goode in First Trailer for Indie 'Birthmarked'

Birthmarked Trailer

"You can't raise kids like caged animals!" Vertical Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for an indie comedy titled Birthmarked, about the trials and tribulations and craziness of parenting. From Canadian director Emanuel Hoss-Desmarais, this stars Toni Collette and Matthew Goode as two scientists who decided to give up their work and become parents (for research). The main concept is that, being scientists, they set out to raise three genetically different children into becoming a genius, an artist and a pacifist. But years later, they realize that despite their best efforts, their children are simply "average" and really nothing special. The cast includes Michael Smiley, Suzanne Clement, Fionnula Flanagan, Jordan Poole, Megan O'Kelly, and Anton Gillis-Adelman. This looks a bit awkward and amusing, worth checking out.

Smashing New Japanese 'Rampage' Trailer Featuring Dwayne Johnson

Rampage Japanese Trailer

"This movie will excite more than just the kaiju fans." Warner Bros Japan has released an official Japanese trailer for the upcoming video game adaptation Rampage, starring the always-badass Dwayne Johnson. We recently posted the second official US trailer for this action movie just last week, but it's cool to see the new Japanese trailer, which comes with a fun intro from Johnson talking about kaiju (seriously). The title in Japanese is actually Rampage: Big Big Brawl, and I like that this trailer is only 60 seconds of pure action non-stop from start to finish. Short and sweet, gets right to it. The full cast of Rampage includes Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Joe Manganiello, Naomie Harris, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, Breanne Hill, Jack Quaid, Joey Thurmond, and P.J. Byrne. There's not much of a plot to talk about, because it's mostly just about giant monsters smashing up a city and humans trying to stop them. Fire it up.

First Trailer for 'Thy Kingdom Come' Made from Extra Malick Footage

Thy Kingdom Come Trailer

"I also see how difficult it must be for you to survive…" A trailer has debuted for an intriguing film titled Thy Kingdom Come, which is premiering at the SXSW Film Festival in March in the "Visions" section. How many remember Terrence Malick's 2012 film To the Wonder, with all the twirling? Thy Kingdom Come is a film made up of extra footage from early research on To the Wonder. In 2010, photojournalist Eugene Richards was hired by Malick to go to the town Bartlesville, Oklahoma with Javier Bardem (who plays a priest in the film) and meet some of the local residents. Some knew who he was, others didn't. "Absolutely no one cared, in the end, who he was, except that he was there to listen." Richards eventually got the rights back and made this 43 minute film, which screens alongside Malick's VR project Together. First look below.

First Trailer for Bizarre, High Concept Drone Romance 'Eye on Juliet'

Eye on Juliet Trailer

"Everytime I see you, it feels good, and it hurts at the same time." Entertainment One has debuted the first official trailer for a very bizarre, high concept indie romantic drama titled Eye on Juliet. Here's the crazy unique pitch for this: a drone operator falls in love with a Middle Eastern woman who is being beaten by her family. She can't really see him, because he operates a hexapod drone, but he can see her on his computer system back in America, and tries to save her. Joe Cole stars as the operator, along with Lina El Arabi as his love interest, plus a cast including Faycal Zeglat, Hatim Seddiki, and Brent Skagford. As weird as this sounds, and although it seems cheesy, this trailer actually shows some promise. He might've pulled this off? This already played at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, which means there's definitely something to it. You just have to watch the trailer to get an idea and see just what this is all about. Take a look below.

Vuyo Dabula in Official Trailer for Western 'Five Fingers for Marseilles'

Five Fingers for Marseilles Trailer

"Marseilles was never free, but it will be. Change is coming." EntertainmentOne has unveiled a new full-length official trailer for the action western film Five Fingers for Marseilles, which first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year. We posted the teaser trailer for this "neo-western" set in South Africa just before the festival last year, now we have a full theatrical trailer. The story follows a young boy whose life is changed forever when he kills two corrupt policemen in a South African shanty town. Decades later, he finally heads home but his return brings out his enemies who go after him and all of his friends. The film stars Vuyo Dabula as Tau, along with Hamilton Dhlamini, Zethu Dlomo, Kenneth Nkosi, Mduduzi Mabaso, Aubrey Poolo, Lizwi Vilakazi, Warren Masemola, Anthony Oseyemi, Jerry Mofokeng, plus Kenneth Fok. This looks very cool, very gritty. I'm quite curious to check it out, still has my attention.

Check Out This Short Teaser for a Fan-Made Han Solo Anime Project

Han Solo Anime Teaser

This is for true Star Wars geeks only. The first teaser trailer for the next Star Wars spin-off movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, was unveiled earlier this month. One fan named Daz Tibbles (follow him @daztibbles) decided to turn the trailer into an anime and start developing an anime series based on the Solo footage. He made this anime teaser in only four days time, which is very impressive. The tiny bit of footage we do get here seems to be inspired by a scene in the official teaser, but it looks like this could become its own anime series separate from the movie anyway. That is, if it were official, but it just seems to be a fan project. Still a cool tease, and something I would watch more of, for sure. Check out the trailer and follow Daz for updates.
