Colin Firth Learns How to Sail in First UK Trailer for Drama 'The Mercy'

The Mercy Trailer

"Leave your doubts with us here on the shore. Take your dreams out to sea." StudioCanal UK has debuted an official UK trailer for an indie drama titled The Mercy, which tells the story of a humble man who takes an unfinished boat on a race around the world in an adventure on his own. This 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 Crowhurst, along with David Thewlis, Jonathan Bailey, Tim Downie, Andrew Buchan, Genevieve Gaunt, Adrian Schiller. It looks like everything you'd expect for one of these biopics, and it will surely be entertaining to watch. Firth is always remarkable.

Teaser Trailer for John Krasinski's 'A Quiet Place' Starring Emily Blunt

A Quiet Place Trailer

"If they can't hear you, they can't hunt you." Paramount has unveiled the first mysterious teaser trailer for a horror thriller titled A Quiet Place, directed by and starring actor John Krasinski. Holy smokes this looks good, original, and thrilling. The film is about a family living quietly on a farm, keeping to themselves. Monsters (I think?) have taken over the world but they only hunt by sound, so if you stay quiet they can't find you. The teaser sets up the story quite well. Emily Blunt stars, along with Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds (who you may recognize as the fantastic deaf actress from Wonderstruck). Okay, so I am way into this. Helluva tease. The big scratches on the wall have me intrigued - what are dealing with here? How big? Is anyone else reminded of Pitch Black? I like all the sign language already. Can't wait to find out more.

"It's all there. - the motherload." Saban Films has debuted the first official trailer for a funky crime thriller titled Bullet Head, from writer/director Paul Solet. The film is about three career criminals who end up trapped inside a warehouse together, after finding money inside. A deranged dog keeps them stuck in the building. Starring Adrien Brody and John Malkovich, along with Antonio Banderas, Ori Pfeffer, Alexandra Dinu, Velizar Binev, Owen Davis, and Cristina Segovia. This seems like it could be a cool film, but I'm not too sure this one pulled that off, though I am curious at least. You may want to take a look.

US Trailer for Crazy Russian Dash Cam Documentary 'The Road Movie'

The Road Movie Trailer

"World-class stupidity…" Oscilloscope Labs has unveiled a new official trailer for the brutal, the crazy, the wild, the epic documentary known as The Road Movie (or also Дорога in Russian), compiled entirely of dash cam footage from Russia. This doc played at IDFA, True/False, Sheffield, Zurich, Denver, and other film festivals and will be hitting theaters in January. One of the descriptions makes this seem a little over the top: "Super objective dashboard-cam videos grow into a strong image of the Russian national character, permanently awaiting for a miracle and the habitual approach to real dramas. Everything can happen on the road of… life." Apparently so. This seems like it should play well to US right audiences now. This trailer is packed with some very bold, vicious quotes that don't really make me any more interested in this. Have fun.

Wacky New 'Wet on Wet' Teaser Trailer for Ryan Reynolds' 'Deadpool 2'

Deadpool 2 Teaser Trailer

"I'm glad you could join me today." 20th Century Fox has debuted a hilarious new teaser trailer for the Deadpool sequel, currently known as just Deadpool 2, once again starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth. They're marketing for this sequel is as good as the first so far, and as things ramp up it only seems to be getting even better. This latest brilliant teaser is an example of that, an amusing mockery of Bob Ross that still delivers. Somewhere around the 1:40 mark, actual footage kicks in from the movie. The film's full cast includes Morena Baccarin, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller, Eddie Marsan, Zazie Beetz, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Julian Dennison, and Stefan Kapicic. So this looks a bit darker and more thrilling than the first Deadpool, I'm fine with that. I'm sure there'll still be plenty of jokes.

Trailer for Camping Horror 'Desolation' Made by Director Sam Patton

Desolation Trailer

"Dad said you should never go off trail." IFC Midnight has unveiled an official trailer for a horror thriller titled Desolation, the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Sam Patton. This first premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival, but hasn't played at too many other festivals. In Desolation, a young mother, her best friend and son venture into the wilderness for a camping trip only to find themselves the hunted prey in a deranged killer’s terrifying game. The cast includes Jaimi Paige, Alyshia Ochse, Claude Duhamel, and Toby Nichols. This looks like an interesting horror thriller, but I'm pretty sure I've already figured out the twist. Though I guess I don't really know. The sunglasses dude doesn't seem that creepy, but that's just me.

New Trailer for Rupert Jones' Thriller 'Kaleidoscope' with Toby Jones

Kaleidoscope Trailer

"You left clues everywhere…" IFC has debuted the first official trailer for an intriguing psychological thriller titled Kaleidoscope, from writer/director Rupert Jones. The film stars Toby Jones as middle-aged man just released from prison. The film is apparently about his relationship to his mother, and asks the question: "is it possible to escape our past?" The cast includes Anne Reid, Sinead Matthews, Manjinder Virk, Karl Johnson, Deborah Findlay, and Frederick Schmidt. This looks like a creepy, mysterious head-trip kind of film, but actually quite good with seemingly lots of twists. Per the description: "At the heart of this modern day Psycho are some unsettling questions: Can we ever escape the role in which we are cast by our early circumstances? Must a perpetrator first be a victim?" This trailer is definitely worth checking out.

Hugh Jackman in Magnificent Full Trailer for 'The Greatest Showman'

The Greatest Showman Trailer

"Does it bother you that everything you're selling is fake?" 20th Century Fox has released the new full-length trailer for The Greatest Showman, the exciting new musical telling the story of showman P.T. Barnum, the original creator of the vaudeville show known as the circus. Hugh Jackman stars as P.T. Barnum, in this rather extravagant but mesmerizing musical, with original songs from the Oscar-winning lyricists of La La Land, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul (this is a big marketing point). The huge ensemble cast also includes Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Paul Sparks, and Zendaya. Okay I have to honestly say, this looks magnificent, I really can't wait to see this. Maybe there's a chance it could be another outstanding year-end movie sliding in the last few days of 2017. No really, it looks great. Have fun.

Official Trailer for Bryan Buckley's True Story 'The Pirates of Somalia'

Pirates of Somalia Trailer

"You want to make it as some big journalist, you gotta go somewhere crazy." Crystal Sky Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for an indie dramatic thriller titled The Pirates of Somalia, from writer/director Bryan Buckley (The Bronze). The film tells the "incredible true story" of rookie journalist Jay Bahadur, who in 2008 decided to go to Somalia to embed himself among the pirates there. He ultimately succeeds in providing the first close-up look into who these men are, how they live, and the forces that drive them. Evan Peters stars as journalist Jay Bahadur, and of course they got Somalian native Barkhad Abdi to star as his local fixer. The cast also includes Coral Peña, Philip Ettinger, Russell Posner, Melanie Griffith, and Al Pacino. This actually looks better than expected, so far so good, I am honestly intrigued.

Official Trailer for Indie Film 'Small Town Crime' Starring John Hawkes

Small Town Crime Trailer

"We do this - there is no half way." Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for an indie dark comedy titled Small Town Crime, which played at the SXSW and London Film Festivals. The "small town" crime film stars John Hawkes as an alcoholic ex-cop who finds the body of a young woman and, through an act of self-redemption, becomes hell-bent on finding the killer but unwittingly puts his family in danger and gets caught up with several dark characters along the way. Sounds fun, no? The ensemble cast includes Octavia Spencer, Anthony Anderson, Robert Forster, Clifton Collins, Jr., Michael Vartan, James Lafferty, Daniel Sunjata, Caity Lotz, Jeremy Ratchford, Don Harvey, Stefanie Scott, and Dale Dickey. This looks pretty much exactly as it sounds, but at least it's nice to see Hawkes in another lead role.
