"All you have to do is wait for me." Just last week an illustrated teaser poster surfaced for the Sundance selected, slow-burning, western thriller Ain't Them Bodies Saints starring Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone). The film won the U.S. Dramatic Cinematography Award, and this writer called the film "a contemporary western with all the right beats, this film is full of authentic drama, and a respect for westerns of the past and present." Now you get a taste of the fantastic film from director David Lowery coming later this summer with this first gorgeous trailer. Watch below!
See this documentary. It is phenomenal. I first saw Joshua Oppenheimer's The Act of Killing at the New Directors/New Films fest at the Film Society of Lincoln Center earlier this year and was completely blown away. It's such a riveting, unbelievably real, challenging, but powerful documentary that, as is quoted in the official synopsis, "could well change how you view the documentary form." The movie challenges former Indonesian death squad leaders to reenact their real-life mass-killings in whichever cinematic genres they wish, including classic Hollywood crime scenarios and lavish musical numbers. The result, and story that unfolds as Oppenheimer captures these murderers on film, is truly remarkable. See the official trailer below.
In the past, we've featured cool live-action commercials for the Halo video game series, and so we figured it couldn't hurt to highlight a new game from game developers at Bungie and Activision. That game is Destiny, and it's been in the works for quite some time. Now the game is poised to debut on the Playstation 4, and a live-action trailer for the video game has just debuted, and it's pretty bad ass. What's also cool about the ad is that it's directed by Iron Man helmer Jon Favreau and it also features "Revolution" and "Breaking Bad" star Giancarlo Esposito. At the very least, this has me interested in the new game. Watch!
Since Universal is sending the high speed action bonanza Fast & Furious 6 into theaters this weekend, it's the perfect time to tout their racing drama Rush from director Ron Howard and starring Chris Hemsworth. Set in the world of Formula 1 racing, the period drama follows two rival F1 drivers and the crash that nearly took the life of driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) in his rivalry with driver James Hunt (Hemsworth). It looks like a pretty stylish drama, and something a little different for Howard as a director. The trailer might sell the sizzle a bit more just for the Fast & Furious franchise audience, but it looks good.
We've seen some pretty gruesome footage from the serial killer thriller Maniac starring Elijah Wood. When the film premiered at Cannes last year, an uncensored trailer made it online, and a red band international trailer showed off more gore last fall. Now the film is finally poised for release here in the United States and one final red band trailer has emerged for the story of a mannequin store owner who leads a double life as a serial killer with a fetish for scalps. It's definitely different for Wood who is best known for childhood roles and his lead turn in The Lord of the Rings, so it should be worth seeing. Watch!
A first look at the IMAX 3D concert feature film Metallica Through the Never showed Chronicle star Dane DeHaan in some sort of strange seemingly post-apocalyptic world where he plays one of the band's crew members sent out on a mission during Metallica's roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. But as you can see in this trailer, his mission is cut short by a car accident and some sort of crazy riot that just escalates and gets crazy while Metallica continues their epic stage show. It looks like this will only be enjoyable for fans of the metal band, but there are some cool visuals that will pop on the IMAX screen in 3D.
Going by both the red band trailer and much more tame green band trailer, all sorts of hell will be unleashed upon Hollywood in This is the End, the apocalyptic comedy from writers and directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. There's been glimpses of aliens, weird creatues, giant pits, and tons of fire, and now some religious terror in a red band TV spot. A creature from hell shows up and it looks like one of the guys ends up getting possessed by Satan or at least some sort of demonic force. Between this and The World's End, the apocalypse is going to rule comedy in theaters this summer, and we're pretty happy about that. Watch now!
Following the footsteps of the first teaser for Delivery Man, another comedy is getting introduced to audiences who will be catching The Hangover Part III this week. This time it's Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema's own We're the Millers starring Horrible Bosses co-stars Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston. The latter is looking pretty saucy as a struggling stripper, and Sudeikis asks her to pose as a fake family (including Will Poulter and Emma Roberts as their kids) in order to smuggle some marijuana from Mexico into the United States for the rich drug dealing Ed Helms. With a colorful cast of supporting characters including Nick Offerman and Kathryn Hahn, this red band trailer is hilarious. Watch below!
If you haven't yet checked out the original line of Threadless shirts commemorating Monsters University, check out the designs right here and pick up your favorites. The last trailer for the Pixar Animation sequel was the final theatrical trailer, but a new online trailer has surfaced highlighting the original music work of musicians Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso of Swedish House Mafia, who crafted a song called Roar for the film. It's quite an upbeat trailer, taking some bumper cues from the trailers for The Hangover Part III, but instead of being the end, it's actually where it all began. One more month! Watch!
After debuting at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the acclaimed directorial debut from Joseph Gordon-Levitt is finally coming to theaters this fall, and the first trailer is here. The Dark Knight Rises star also wrote and stars in the film which follows a selfish modern-day Don Juan who struggles with an addiction to pornography as he attempts to find a woman that can compare to the sensation he gets from pleasuring himself through adult entertainment. Scarlett Johansson also stars in the film with Julianne Moore and Tony Danza (for an Angels in the Outfield reunion). The film is original, funny and just damn good.
The recently released final trailer for Pacific Rim showed off the massive action sequences between the Jaeger robots and the monsters terrorizing Earth. If you're not sold on the movie yet, then it's likely the new film from Guillermo del Toro just isn't your cop of tea. But for those who are anxious to dive into the epic sci-fi blockbuster, a new featurette has just been released which looks at the logistics of the Jaeger robots and how the two pilots inside of them operate the machine so seamlessly. Here we get a sense of some of the human elements as the pilots are forced to share memories and experiences from their past. Watch below!
Adam Sandler and his buddies David Spade, Kevin James and Chris Rock are back together in for the comedy sequel Grown Ups 2. The first trailer showed us what Sandler and his family are up to as they've moved back to his hometown where Shaquille O'Neal is a cop and Taylor Lautner is a douchebag frat boy. Now we get more of the silly antics these friends get up to which include throwing Spade in a giant tire down a hill until he throws up everywhere and a challenge that results in some nude cliffdiving. Oh, and stick around for Nick Swardson if you happen to like that sort of thing. Watch below?
With The Hangover Part III hitting theaters tomorrow, new comedies are looking to introduce themselves to audiences and Delivery Man with Vince Vaughn is one of them. Director and writer Ken Scott has remade his French Canadian comedy Starbuck for American audiences with this story of a middle-aged man whose life is turned upside down when he learns he has fathered 533 children through sperm donation. As you can imagine, this comes as quite a shock, and for Vaughn, that likely means a lot of fast-talking. This teaser doesn't show much except Vaughn doing his thing and Chris Pratt at the end, but it's still amusing.
"It's not us that's changed. It's the town." When five friends reunite after 20 years, they're (somewhat) dead set on making it through an epic 12-bar pub crawl leading all the way to The World's End. But the end of the world might really be in store in the new film from Edgar Wright. In this third part of the Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost reunite and this time they're joined by Paddy Considine, Martin Freeman and Eddie Marsan and a slew of humans who have been possessed by some sort of robot or alien beings, complete with blue blood. This new trailer has exactly what fans have been waiting for. Watch!
