Lily James in 'The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society' Trailer

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society Trailer

"There's more to that story than they like to let on…" Studiocanal has debuted the first official trailer for a film titled in full The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, based on the book of the same name. This is the latest film from veteran English director Mike Newell, who hasn't done much since his 2012 adaptation of Great Expectations, but now he's back at it. The always-impressive Lily James stars in Guernsey as a young journalist who forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey Island (Google Maps) in the aftermath of WWII when she decides to write a book about their experiences during the war. The title is a reference to the book club that she befriends on the island. The cast includes Jessica Brown Findlay, Matthew Goode, Michiel Huisman, Katherine Parkinson, Glen Powell, Tom Courtenay, and Penelope Wilton. This looks like a moving & passionate film about the power of stories.

Stelio Savante & Autumn Withers in Trailer for Indie Drama 'Avalanche'

Avalanche Trailer

"How many more secrets do you have?" "Oodles." The Willoughby Movie Company has debuted the first official trailer for a relationship drama titled Avalanche, from writer & director Todd L. Green. The film is about a librarian, his wife, and her lover who become trapped in a house together and are forced to navigate the fallout of their indiscretions. Starring Stelio Savante, Autumn Withers, and Gideon Emery in the three lead roles. There seems to be some intriguing things going on, involving cameras and setups just to catch the other person. This has a very low budget look and sound, and it feels like a stage play more than cinema, but it should still be a fun film to watch. As long as you can laugh at this kind of relationship humor.

Karl Urban in Official Trailer for Bobby Moresco's Crime Thriller 'Bent'

Bent Trailer

"You want to make them pay for what they did to you?" Lionsgate has debuted the first official trailer for a new crime thriller titled Bent, from NYC-raised director Bobby Moresco, based on the novel titled "Deadly Codes". Bent stars Karl Urban as a shamed former cop now working as a private investigator. He ends up in over his head following a government conspiracy involving rogue agents from a top spy agency. The full cast includes Sofía Vergara, Andy Garcia, Vincent Spano, John Finn, Grace Byers, Tonya Cornelisse, and Patrick Brennan. As cool as this sounds, it looks like pretty much every other gritty ex-cop crime thriller, which is a shame, because Urban deserves better roles than this. Not sure it's going to be any good.

First Trailer for Supernatural Horror 'Marrowbone' with George MacKay

Marrowbone Trailer

"We have to tell Allie the truth." Magnet Releasing has unveiled a new official trailer for the supernatural horror thriller film Marrowbone, which is the feature directorial debut of Spanish writer Sergio G. Sanchez, who previously wrote the scripts for The Orphanage and The Impossible. The film is about four siblings who seek refuge in an old home after the death of their mother, only to discover that the house has another, more sinister, inhabitant. George MacKay (seen in Captain Fantastic) stars, along with Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton, Mia Goth, Nicola Harrison, and Matthew Stagg. This looks like it has some impressive cinematography to top off a chilling ghost story. Another solid horror that is worth a look.

Toni Collette & Harvey Keitel in Trailer for Parisian Comedy 'Madame'

Madame Trailer

"It's like a slow motion car crash…" Blue Fox Entertainment has debuted an official US trailer for the indie comedy Madame, set in Paris, starring two great actors - Toni Collette and Harvey Keitel. Collette & Keitel play a wealthy and well-connected American couple who just moved into a big house in Paris. They host a fancy dinner party with other upper class guests, but to even out the number of those at the table, they recruit their "loyal maid" Maria to disguise as a "Spanish noble woman" but she falls for one of their other guests and everything gets a little wacky after that. The full cast includes Rossy de Palma, Michael Smiley, Tom Hughes, Violaine Gillibert, Stanislas Merhar, and Sue Cann. This looks totally kooky and entertaining, almost like a French mix between Dinner for Schmucks and Beatriz at Dinner (with Salma Hayek). Seems like it'll be fun to watch, especially because Collette & Keitel are so damn talented. See below.

Second Trailer for John Krasinski's Eerie Sci-Fi Thriller 'A Quiet Place'

A Quiet Place Trailer

"Who are we, if we can't protect them? We have to protect them…" Paramount has unveiled another official trailer for the sci-fi thriller A Quiet Place, from director John Krasinski, who also stars in this. While there is more footage in this latest trailer, thankfully it doesn't give anything big away (yet) - they're still keeping most of it a mystery. Which is perfect because I don't want it all spoiled. The film is about a family living quietly on a farm, keeping to themselves. Some kind of monsters have taken over the world but they only hunt by sound, so if you stay quiet they can't find you. Emily Blunt also stars, along with Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds (who you may recognize as the deaf actress from Wonderstruck). This has quickly become one of my most anticipated films this year, the little touches in it make all the difference. Can't wait.

Full-Length Trailer for Netflix's New 'Benji' Film Starring Kiele Sanchez

Benji Movie Trailer

"He's not just any dog - he's Benji." Netflix has debuted the full-length trailer for their new Benji movie, an update/remake of the original classic dog hero movie from the 70s. We posted a short teaser trailer for this last week, but this full trailer actually looks great. The story of Benji follows one orphaned puppy and Carter and Frankie, two capricious New Orleans school kids who strike up a friendship with the tenacious street dog. When they end up kidnapped by robbers who are in over their heads, Benji and his scruffy sidekick come to the rescue. The film stars Kiele Sanchez, Gabriel Bateman, and Darby Camp. It's directed by Brandon Camp, whose father Joe Camp created the original. This looks quite adorable, really want to see it.

Full International Trailer for Spanish Horror Fantasy Film 'Errementari'

Errementari Trailer

This looks freaky cool. A full-length international trailer has debuted for a Spanish horror fantasy film titled Errementari: The Blacksmith and the Devil, which has been playing at a few of the big horror film festivals in Europe since premiering in Sitges late last year. From Spanish filmmaker Paul Urkijo Alijo, Errementari does tell the story of a blacksmith outside of a small town, who is perhaps possessed by the devil. It's actually about a government commissioner investigating the blacksmith, and a young orphan girl named Usue who manages to sneak inside the smithy's place and discover the truth. Errementari stars Kandido Uranga as the blacksmith Patxi, Uma Bracaglia as Usue, plus Eneko Sagardoy, Ramón Aguirre, José Ramón Argoitia, Gorka Aguinagalde, Josean Bengoetxea, and Iñigo de la Iglesia. I'm not sure what to make of this, could be good or could be bad. The shot of the devil at the end is wicked.

William Jackson Harper in First Full Trailer for Thriller 'They Remain'

They Remain Trailer

"When I'm into something, I can't let it go." Paladin has debuted the trailer for a slow burn psychological thriller titled They Remain, from writer/director Philip Gelatt. This first premiered at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival last fall, but hasn't played at many other festivals. Adapted from one of Laird Barron's short stories, the film is about two scientists, who share a romantic history, that are tasked with investigating unnatural animal behavior on the site of a Manson Family-style cult's compound. Actor William Jackson Harper (seen in Paterson, and on "The Good Place") stars along with Rebecca Henderson. This is one of those psychological films that slowly breaks down into the question of "what is real and what is imagined." It also seems like a good companion to Alex Garland's Annihilation, strangely enough. Worth a quick look.

Another New Trailer for That 'Overboard' Remake Starring Anna Faris

Overboard Trailer

"I have an idea… that is poetic in its justice." Pantelion Films has unveiled a official trailer for the comedy remake Overboard, updating the 1987 movie with Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell. The plot is about a spoiled, wealthy yacht owner who is thrown overboard and becomes the target of revenge from his mistreated employee. We featured the first trailer for this late last year, and the release is coming up in April. This new version of Overboard stars Eugenio Derbez and Anna Faris, as well as Eva Longoria, John Hannah, Swoosie Kurtz, Josh Segarra, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Emily Maddison, and Mel Rodriguez. This looks amusing, a bit cheesy, with some revenge humor you may love or may hate. How many people are familiar with the original? Is it really necessary to remake this? Maybe it's just all about getting back at the rich man.

Official Trailer for 'Ramen Heads' Documentary About the Best Ramen

Ramen Heads Trailer

"It's worth waiting a whole day just to eat this ramen." FilmBuff has released the trailer for a delectable documentary titled Ramen Heads from Japan, profiling five of the finest Japanese ramen chefs and their techniques. If you love ramen, you have to see this. If you don't know what ramen really is, you have to see this. If you love good food, you have to see this. Koki Shigeno's Ramen Heads is a fascinating culinary film about what makes ramen so great, and how dedicated to their craft these various chefs are. "As a chef maybe you need to be more of a ramen head than your customers. You need to make the soup so good that people never get tired of it, even if they eat it every day." I caught this at IDFA and it's an okay doc, felt more like a film best for train/bus trips than the cinema, but it will make you love ramen even more. Get a taste below.

New Trailer for GKids' Release of Animated 'Satellite Girl & Milk Cow'

Satellite Girl and Milk Cow Trailer

"True love may fly into your heart!" GKids has debuted a new official trailer for their upcoming released of the Korean animated movie Satellite Girl and Milk Cow, or The Satellite Girl and Milk Cow / Uribyeol Ilho-wa Eollukso, from "the brilliant and slightly twisted mind" of writer & director Chang Hyung-yun. This film was actually released back in 2014 in Korea, and played at a few film festivals in 2014 and 2015, but is just now getting released in US theaters four years later. Satellite Girl and Milk Cow is described as "a heartfelt and wildly entertaining commentary on the possibility for human connection in the crazy, mixed-up, post-modern world we live in." GKids' president David Jesteadt is also excited about showing it to US audiences, saying it's "a truly original, fantasy anime sci-fi rom-com, just bursting with humor and heart. I'm hoping as many people as possible get the opportunity to see this remarkable film." This looks crazy fun.
