Full Trailer for Tribal Battle Action Film 'The Veil' Starring William Levy

The Veil Movie Trailer

"When I was young, I fought to survive. But with time, everything changed…" Vertical Entertainment has debuted a trailer for an action film titled The Veil, set in a "war-torn land where tribal factions live in fear of annihilation." Cuban actor William Levy stars as a deadly warrior who is betrayed and left for dead by his own tribe. He is healed by a mysterious princess and taken in by a secret tribe, only to go back and wage war against his own people. This seems like one of those cliche "tribal battle" movies that doesn't have much to offer. The cast includes Serinda Swan, William Moseley, Nick Tarabay, Adam Gregory, and Billy Blair. I don't feel like anyone actually watches these kind of action movies anymore, but what do I know?

Trailer for World Trade Center Drama '9/11' Directed by Martin Guigui

9/11 Movie Trailer

"I need you to try to get the hell out of that elevator." Atlas Distribution has premiered a trailer for a new drama titled 9/11, telling the story of five people trapped inside an elevator in the World Trade Center's North Tower on 9/11. They work together, never giving up hope, to try and find a way out safely. It's only been 16 years, but I guess we've reached a point where movies can literally use the 9/11 date as their title when telling a story centered around this horrific moment. The ensemble cast of this film includes Charlie Sheen, Whoopi Goldberg, Luis Guzman, Gina Gershon, Wood Harris, Jacqueline Bisset, Olga Fonda and Bruce Davison. It's directed by Martin Guigui, the same guy who made the unofficial Raging Bull sequel The Bronx Bull. The final shot in this trailer is totally crazy, and potentially a spoiler? Watch out.

Tony Jaa + Iko Uwais in Teaser Trailer for Action Movie 'Triple Threat'

Triple Threat Teaser Trailer

"We find them, we kill them, no messin' about." Well Go USA has debuted a brief teaser trailer for the new action film Triple Threat, from stuntman-turned-director Jesse V. Johnson, who also has the film Savage Dogs being released this year. Triple Threat features one hell of a kick ass cast - mainly action superstars Tony Jaa and Iko Uwais teaming up, along with more action stars: Michael Jai White, Scott Adkins, Celina Jade, Michael Bisping, Selina Lo, JeeJa Yanin, Ron Smoorenburg, and Tiger Hu Chen. Not that the plot matters much with this cast, but it's about a team of mercenaries who must take on a group of professional assassins and stop them before they kill an important woman. This looks like it'll be badass.

New International Trailer for DGG's 'Stronger' Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Stronger Trailer

"You need to tell your family what's going on with you…" A brand new international trailer for David Gordon Green's Stronger, about a survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013, has debuted online. This is the second Boston Marathon bombing movie, the fist one Patriots Day opened last winter. This new trailer is a similar but a bit different than the other US trailer and actually plays better. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the bombing. The cast includes Tatiana Maslany as his wife Erin Hurley, plus Clancy Brown, Miranda Richardson, and Frankie Shaw. This looks very emotional and very powerful, but triumphant in the end, which is of course the story it's trying to show us. Take a look.

Will Smith in Full Trailer for David Ayer's Fantasy Action Movie 'Bright'

Bright Movie Trailer

"All of the races are different. Just because they're different doesn't mean anybody's better or worse than anybody." Netflix has launched the full-length trailer for David Ayer's fascinating new film Bright – which is a Netflix Original production, starring Will Smith, set in a different world where other creatures like orcs and elves co-exist with humans. It's also a bit like Training Day, it seems, because Smith plays a cop assigned a partner who's an orc and he just doesn't like him. Joel Edgerton co-stars under the make-up as "Nick Jakoby", and the full cast includes Noomi Rapace, Kenneth Choi, Brad William Henke, Lucy Fry, Edgar Ramírez, Ike Barinholtz, Brandon Larracuente, and Dawn Olivieri. So this actually looks surprisingly damn good, I'm serious. The first half of this trailer starts a bit slow, but when everything kicks in mid-way through - wow. I'm seriously impressed. I really want to see this movie. What about you?

Official Trailer for Documentary on 'Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web'

Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web

"You don't do a raid like this and get away with it." Gravitas Ventures has debuted the first official trailer for a documentary titled Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web, telling the story of the controversial internet maven known as "Kim Dotcom". He is the founder of MegaUpload, and is being pursued for copyright infringement and money laundering in the United States. Born under the name Kim Schmitz in Germany, Dotcom now lives in New Zealand, hiding out there to prevent from being extradited. The documentary tells the story of the "Most Wanted Man Online", directed by New Zealand doc filmmaker Annie Goldson. As the quotes say, this does look fascinating and important and powerful. I'm always very curious about docs about the internet, because there's so much to explore and to examine. This is a short trailer, but I'm already sold.

Join the Jaeger Uprising - Viral Teaser Video for 'Pacific Rim: Uprising'

Pacific Rim: Uprising Teaser

Join the Jaeger Uprising! Well, this is a cool way to introduce the new movie. Legendary + Universal have debuted a viral teaser trailer video for Pacific Rim 2, known as Pacific Rim: Uprising. The video is an advertisement explaining what exactly a Jaeger is (the giant fighting robots controlled by two people who interlink via brain technology) and ends with an upbeat message encouraging fans to sign-up to be a Jaeger pilot. "Now accepting pilot applications" at GoJaeger.com. The video also features our first look at John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, in his Jaeger helmet. The full cast of the sequel includes Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Adria Arjona, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, and Karan Brar. I hope we get to see an actual trailer with real footage soon, but for now this is a cool way to start the Jaegar hype yet again.

First Teaser Trailer for Todd Haynes' Wonderful Film 'Wonderstruck'

Wonderstruck Teaser Trailer

Meet Rose and Ben. Amazon Studios + Roadside Attractions have debuted the first teaser trailer for the new film from Todd Haynes, titled Wonderstruck, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. The film tells two different stories set 50 years apart, following two kids who venture into New York City. One of them is a deaf girl who escapes home and tries to find her mom. The other is a young deaf boy who escapes home in search of a room at the Natural History Museum. Millicent Simmonds stars as Rose, and Oakes Fegley (from Pete's Dragon) stars as Ben. The full cast includes Julianne Moore, Cory Michael Smith, James Urbaniak, Damian Young, and Lauren Ridloff. It's an inspiring film. I wrote in my Cannes review it's "as much about the magic of New York City as it is about the magic of connection".

The Master Returns in First Trailer for 'Jigsaw' Arriving This October

Jigsaw Trailer

"You want mercy? Play by the rules." Lionsgate has revealed the first trailer for the next Saw movie, titled simply Jigsaw, referring to the original mastermind behind all the deadly traps and torture. Even though he supposedly died in one of the earlier movies, this title and the new trailer makes me wonder if Jigsaw (played by Tobin Bell) is somehow back from the dead. The cast this time includes Laura Vandervoort, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Brittany Allen, and others. Even though we already had a 3D Saw recently, this one is supposedly taking Jigaw's "signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level." This didn't look so bad until the lasers on the head trap, then I rolled my eyes.

Taraji P. Henson Plays an Assassin in First Full Trailer for 'Proud Mary'

Proud Mary Trailer

"You a cop?" "Not exactly." Screen Gems has unveiled the first official trailer for a film titled Proud Mary, starring the always awesome Taraji P. Henson as an assassin. This is slated for release in early January, which is never a good sign, but I'm hopeful for something entertaining. We don't know much about this, except that Henson meets a young boy on a hit gone wrong and she decides to watch over him. The full cast includes Neal McDonough, Danny Glover, Xander Berkeley, Billy Brown, Margaret Avery, Jahi Di'Allo Winston, and Owen Burke. This is a very fun, clever trailer, without much dialogue in it (yet), relying entirely on the music, visuals, and some kick ass action. Damn! I'm looking forward to this already.

First US Trailer for Egyptian Crime Thriller 'The Nile Hilton Incident'

The Nile Hilton Incident Trailer

"Sir, I saw what happened at the Hilton." Strand Releasing has debuted the first official trailer for Tarik Saleh's The Nile Hilton Incident, an intense political thriller set against the back drop of the Egyptian Revolution. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and the film won the top Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema Dramatic competition during the festival. The story is about a police office investigating the murder of a woman at the Hilton hotel, who discovers there's much more going on than it seems. The cast features Fares Fares, Mari Malek, Yasser Ali Maher, Slimane Dazi, Ahmed Selim, Mohamed Yousry, and Hania Amar. This seems like it has the vibe of an old school noir mystery, but with modern sensibilities and context. The film looks like it's definitely worth catching in theaters this year.

The Villainess Trailer

"Let me show you what you made me into." Well Go USA has released the first official trailer for an action film from Korea titled The Villainess, which premiered out-of-competition at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. I heard some rave reviews of this and I definitely want to check it out. Ok-bin Kim stars as Sook-hee, a trained assassin who tries to become a stage actress after giving 10 years of service as an assassin. But her dark past comes creeping back and she must take things into her own hands to finish her work and be free once and for all. The full cast includes Eun-ji Jo, Seo-hyung Kim, Ha-kyun Shin, and Jun Sung. One review from Cannes says that its "dynamically staged, blood-drenched action sequences are a highlight." Based on all the buzz and footage from this trailer, I'm very excited to see this film. Take a look.
