First Trailer for Eli Roth's Cannibal Horror Thriller 'The Green Inferno'

The Green Inferno

Following a bloody first look over a year ago, and playing the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and Fantastic Fest (where our own Jeremy Kirk mostly enjoyed the film), the first trailer for Eli Roth's latest directorial effort, The Green Inferno, has arrived. There's already a sequel on the way, but that shouldn't really spoil the proceedings as a group of students find themselves captured by the native tribe they were intending on saving. It's just a teaser trailer, so there's not much show, but it's certainly effective. Also, the little disclaimer at the end adds a little ominous flare to the film as well. Is it real? Watch the teaser trailer!

Michael C. Hall Kills Again in First Trailer for Indie Drama 'Cold in July'

Cold in July

While many are used to seeing Michael C. Hall kill someone with no problem on the now completed Showtime drama series "Dexter," his role as a killer in the Sundance selected drama Cold in July is a little different. Complete with a terrible haircut, Hall plays Richard Dane, a man who ends up fatally shooting a home invader to death. But the real tension begins when the dead intruder's father (Sam Shepard) is released from prison, and seeks out revenge by targeting Richard's young son. This looks like quite an intense thriller, with a solid performance from Hall. We missed it at Sundance, but will certainly seek it out.

First Powerful Trailer for Adaptation 'If I Stay' Starring Chloe Moretz

If I Stay Trailer Chloe Moretz

"Life is this big, fat, gigantic, stinking mess, and that's the beauty of it, too..." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's If I Stay, an adaptation of Gayle Forman's novel of the same name about an aspiring musician who must overcome great tragedy and make an impossible decision. Chloe Moretz stars, along with Jamie Blackley as the boy, plus Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds and Stacy Keach This looks like a heartbreaker to compete with Fault in Our Stars, but, maybe by the end, a heartwarmer, too. The footage looks solid, nothing like The Lovely Bones thankfully. Take a look.

Must Watch: Final Astounding 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Trailer

X-Men: Days of Future Past

With the film just over a month away, it's time for the final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and if you're not fully excited for this sequel after watching it, we're not sure what to tell you. This promises to be the biggest X-Men film to date, which is crazy since X-Men: Apocalypse could be even bigger. But it's hard to argue with the presence of this positively massive cast that includes the young X-Men: First Class crew, and the veteran original X-Men franchise cast brought to life by Bryan Singer. We're still trying to keep our hype in check, but we can't help our growing anticipation after this last tease. It features everyone from Magneto to Kitty Pryde, Beast to Mystique, Quicksilver to Iceman, and of course, Professor X. Enjoy!

Elizabeth Banks Causes Trouble in 'Walk of Shame' Red Band Trailer

Walk of Shame

Following a somewhat underwhelming trailer earlier this year for the comedy Walk of Shame starring Elizabeth Banks, a second red band trailer offers a slightly better look at the comedy. While the terrible audio editing in the first half of the trailer is thoroughly distracting, Banks shines as she runs around Los Angeles, trying to get her car back in order to make it to the most important job interview of her career as a news anchorwoman. Meanwhile, her one-night-stand James Marsden and friends Gillian Jacobs and Sarah Wright are in hot pursuit, trying to end her long night from hell with a happy ending. Watch below!

Jenny Slate Gets Pregnant in First Trailer for Hilarious 'Obvious Child'

Obvious Child

After loving the comedy Obvious Child at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, we're happy to report the film is hitting theaters this summer, and the first trailer has just arrived. Former "Saturday Night Live" star and "The Kroll Show" regular Jenny Slate delivers a charming, hilarious and spectacular breakthrough performance as Donna, a Brooklyn comedian who gets dumped and takes solace in a one night stand and ends up pregnant. It throws her whole life into upheaval, not to mention her struggle with telling the would-be father about the mishap, including her plan to get an abortion. Not only is the film funny, but it's genuine and as I wrote in my review, "everything that romantic comedies wish they could be." Watch!

Dudes Love 'My Little Pony' in Odd Tribeca Doc Trailer 'A Brony Tale'

A Brony Tale

If you frequent the internet enough, then you might already know about the phenomenon of men aged 13 to 30 who are obsessed with the Hasbro toy line and animated TV series "My Little Pony." This group of males has been dubbed "Bronies" and now they're getting the spotlight at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month in the form of A Brony Tale, a documentary that looks at the perplexing, pop culture niche which has a big enough following to warrant its own convention, BronyCon. Complete with interviews with various Bronies, this looks like a truly eye-opening documentary that should illicit some chuckles. Watch it!

James Franco, Mila Kunis & More in 'Third Person' International Trailer

Third Person

Following a debut at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, and a forthcoming slot at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in New York, an international trailer for Paul Haggis' most recent directorial effort Third Person has arrived. Though the film doesn't have distribution in the United States yet, the star-studded cast that includes Liam Neeson, James Franco, Adrien Brody, Mila Kunis, Olivia Wilde has made it appealing enough to get a release in Italy and Belgium this month and Japan later this year. Unfortunately, we're not looking forward to the film getting picked up for release in the US, because this looks melodramatic, overwrought and cheesy as hell. If you didn't like Crash, this one won't be for you.

Must Watch: Ben Affleck in David Fincher's 'Gone Girl' Teaser Trailer

Gone Girl

Following a pretty chilling first look at the thriller Gone Girl, based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel of the same name, the first trailer for the adaptation from The Social Network director David Fincher has arrived. The film tells the story of a woman (Rosamund Pike) who disappears on her fifth wedding anniversary, with all the evidence pointing to her husband Nick (Ben Affleck). And even though the film is based on the book, readers will have a surprise because Flynn wrote a new ending for the film. From the looks of this trailer, Fincher has another fantastic thriller on his hands, and we can't wait to see it. Watch!

Watch: First Two Trailers for David Cronenberg's 'Maps to the Stars'

Cronenberg's Maps to the Stars Trailer

"Do you understand - it's all ending now." Wow. eOne Films has unveiled the first official trailer for David Cronenberg's new film, titled Maps to the Stars, starring the young Mia Wasikowska as Agatha in the lead role, as well as a very talented, recognizable cast: Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Sarah Gadon and Robert Pattinson. This new film is said to be a "complex look at Hollywood and what it reveals about Western culture" but this trailer plays almost like Lynch's Mulholland Dr. meets Coppola's Somewhere more than a meta look at Hollywood. But I like the mood in this much more than Cronenberg's last film, Cosmopolis from 2012, and I'm curious to see what his Maps to the Stars is all about. Take a look.

Philip Seymour Hoffman Struggles in First Trailer for 'God's Pocket'

God's Pocket

At the end of last week, the first trailer for A Most Wanted Man debuted, which sadly turned into one of the two final performances from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman that also debuted at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival (there's also The Hunger Games: Mockingjay coming up). Now the first trailer for God's Pocket has arrived, featuring his other stirring lead performance. The film wasn't one of our favorites from Sundance since it ambitiously goes for a dark comedy vibe akin to Coen Brothers, but stumbles in staying in the right tone. Still, the performances are great and John Slattery shows promise as a director. Watch it!

First Trailer for Tommy Lee Jones' Western Drama 'The Homesman'

The Homesman

The 2014 Cannes Film Festival is next month, and we'll definitely have some coverage from the overseas celebration of cinema when the time comes. As the festival gets closer, more and more films are being hinted at for a premiere in France (though Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu's Birdman with Michael Keaton won't be one of them). One film that is expected to debut at Cannes is The Homesman, which is written, produced, directed by and starring Tommy Lee Jones, and a trailer has arrived.. The cinematography and settings look gorgeous as Jones journeys from Nebraska to Iowa to transport three mentally insane women.

Indie Trailer Sunday: Audrey Tautou in French Comedy 'Chinese Puzzle'

Chinese Puzzle Trailer

"It's funny that you find life so complicated." Today's indie trailer is for a film called Chinese Puzzle, or Casse-tête chinois in French, another third film in a charming romantic comedy trilogy about a couple and their lives over the years. The film features the same cast/characters from Cédric Klapisch's Russian Dolls and The Spanish Apartment, including Romain Duris as Xavier Rousseau, along with Audrey Tautou, Kelly Reilly, Toshiko Onizawa, Cécile de France and Sandrine Holt. While it is a French film, they do speak English and it takes place mostly in New York City, and doesn't look that bad at all. I'll check it out.

Watch: Norwegian Deep Sea Diving Thriller 'Pioneer' Full US Trailer

Pioneer Trailer

"Focus on the job and we'll all end up making a lot of money..." This looks eerie. After featuring posters yesterday, today we have the full US trailer for Erik Skjoldbjærg's Pioneer, a Norwegian conspiracy thriller set in the 1980s about the beginning of the Norwegian Oil Boom and deep sea divers using "controversial techniques" to extract oil. The cast includes a number of recognizable names and faces, from Wes Bentley to Stephen Lang to Jonathan LaPaglia, and they speak in English most of the time. This actually looks way better than I expected and I'm glad I stumbled across this film, there's just something mysterious and alluring about it. And I'm glad the footage in the trailer actually looks solid. Take a look for yourself below.
