Watch: First Red Band Trailer for 'ABCs of Death 2' Horror Anthology

ABCs of Death 2

Following the unveiling of the finalists vying for a spot in ABCs of Death 2, the horror anthology sequel featuring 26 different filmmakers at the helm of horror shorts inspired by the alphabet, the first red band trailer has arrived. But this isn't your average restricted trailer as it's being touted as an "extreme" red band trailer. And we gotta be honest, it's more than a little bloody, and it has some super gruesome moments, making it absolutely NSFW. Basically, if you had fun with the first film, then this looks like more of the same craziness, just with 26 all-new directors bringing all sorts of new horror goodness this time. Watch!

Watch: UK Trailer for 'Monsters: Dark Continent' Heads into Combat

Monsters: Dark Continent

"Killin' martians, baby." The most recent trailer for Monsters: Dark Continent, the sequel to Godzilla director Gareth Edwards' breakthrough indie sensation, showed off the larger scale story at the center of the follow-up. Now we get to see even more action as we follow a group of soldiers tasked with taking down some of the creatures across the globe. Thankfully though, it doesn't seem like they've completely thrown out the character-driven angle that made the first film so great as there seem to be hints of drama akin to Zero Dark Thirty or Black Hawk Down. This actually looks pretty decent, so we hope it ends up in the US.

Luke Evans Fights an Army in Japanese Trailer for 'Dracula Untold'

Dracula Untold

"I see the devil inside him!" Following the first trailer for the horror action adventure Dracula Untold not too long ago, a new trailer from Japan has surfaced, showing a bit more of the desperate transformation Luke Evans makes in order to save his family and people from a tyrannical ruler. There's a lot of the same beats from the first trailer here, but this time they don't shove the fact that this is Dracula down your throat until the title appears at the end (and it has a different title too). Frankly, I'm still not completely sold on this flick, and I have a hunch that it's not going to do very well at the box office next month. Watch below!

Willem Dafoe Becomes Cinema Icon in Abel Ferrara's 'Pasolini' Trailer

Pasolini

"Rome is finished, my friend." Pier Paolo Pasolini is one of the most iconic filmmakers Italy has ever produced, and he also had his hands in many other arenas as a poet, novelist, journalist, playwright, actor, painter, philosopher, and more. Now Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Out of the Furnace) will bring him to life in the aptly titled Pasolini, the latest film from Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, Mulberry St.). The film chronicles the final days of Pasolini's life and the events surrounding his murder. Now the first trailer for the film has arrived (the film plays at TIFF), and this looks to be a promising turn from Dafoe. Watch!

Watch: Boy Scouts Find Terror in TIFF Midnight Selection 'Cub' Trailer

Cub

The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival will see some big films debuting in Canada, but there's also plenty of lower key flicks that festival goers should take notice of. One such film seems to be Cub, part of the Midnight Madness section at the festival. The film follows a group of Cub Scouts who find themselves stalked by a psychopathic huntsman who has riddled the forest with ingenious and deadly traps. The film comes from Belgium, and unfortunately there's no subtitles for the ominous scout song being sung in the trailer, but once you see the trailer, you realize that it's not really necessary to get the right vibe. Watch!

Watch: Karen Gillan Shaves All Her Hair for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

Guardians of the Galaxy

There has been so much buzz and success for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy since the film hit theaters last month. The sci-fi action flick just topped the box office again this past weekend, and is now the highest grossing film (domestically) of the year so far. Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. recently praised the film saying that it might be Marvel's best one yet. And the demand for a cute dancing Groot toy has resulted in the real thing. Now we figured we show off some fun from before the film was made with Karen Gillan shaving her head to play the bald, cybernetically enhanced villain Nebula, daughter of Thanos. Cutting that long, gorgeous red hair clearly wasn't easy, and that's serious dedication on Gillan's part. Watch below!

Indie Trailer Sunday: Brilliant Argentinian Anthology Film 'Wild Tales'

Wild Tales Trailer

"Business or pleasure?" I just saw this film at the Telluride Film Festival and it was outstanding, worthy of being highlighted above and beyond the trailer, but I'll start with this since not that many people (outside of South America) have heard about the film yet. Wild Tales is a feature made up of six separate stories, an anthology film made by one director that focuses on the ridiculousness of modern society, and how it causes some people to snap. Each one is hilarious, each one is brilliantly conceived, each one has real characters and situations, and I loved every second of it. It's dark, violent, crude, but incredibly funny, extremely smart and reflective, and a worthwhile cinematic experience. Especially if you want to laugh your ass off. Enjoy!

Andrey Zvyagintsev's Cannes Selected 'Leviathan' Gets a US Trailer

Leviathan

Following yesterday's US trailer for the Cannes Palme d'Or prize-winning film Winter Sleep, we have another much buzzed about title from the French showcase of cinema debuting a trailer. This year, Russian filmmaker Andrey Zvyagintsev (The Return, Elena) returned to Cannes with his drama Leviathan, the story that is described as a gripping parable of class, faith and corruption, centering on a land dispute between a small-time mechanic and his local authorities that reaps unimaginable consequences. The film is actually inspired by the Biblical tale of Job, and looks like a provocative, masterfully shot piece of cinema.

Watch: A Brief History of J.J. Abrams' Abandoned 'Superman: Flyby'

Superman / J.J. Abrams

Plenty of people are familiar with the failed Superman Lives project that director Tim Burton tried to put together with a script from Kevin Smith and wacky actor Nicolas Cage in the lead role. We've featured a couple trailers for a Kickstarter documentary showcasing the making of the movie that never was, but there's another attempt to make a Superman movie that fewer people might know about. Before Bryan Singer would direct Superman Returns, Warner Bros. tried their hand at a film called Superman: Flyby, with a script from J.J. Abrams and questionable director Brett Ratner behind the camera. Watch now!

HBO's 'Banksy Does New York' Doc About the Street Artist's NYC Show

Banksy Does New York Doc

"Becoming less an art show than a city-wide, full-contact game of hide-and-seek." We occasionally make exceptions to feature HBO movies and documentaries, and this is worth your attention. It's a documentary titled Banksy Does New York, inspired by Banksy's Better Out Than In (the real name of the show), profiling the controversial street artist's residency in New York City last October. Every day for the entire month, Banksy would reveal a new piece of art hidden around the city, and it caused a flurry of interest and activity. The doc, which will be airing on HBO, is made up of footage from the masses and it looks fantastic. I was involved in the Banksy mayhem myself, scouring the city and chasing the art, and it was so much fun.

Aardman Animation's 'Shaun the Sheep' Gets a Second Teaser Trailer

Shaun the Sheep

If dry British humor and stop-motion animation make for a cup of tea that you enjoy, then you're probably excited about the forthcoming release of Shaun the Sheep, an adaptation of the popular TV series from across the pond. The first teaser for the film debuted this past spring, and now we get a better idea of the story as Shaun and a bunch of his sheep friends end up stuck in the big city, leaving them with no choice but to find their own way home. However, since this property is far more popular in the United Kingdom, don't expect a release in the United States too quickly, if it even makes it over here at all. Watch the trailer now!

Second 'Harmontown' Trailer: 'Community' Creator is in His Element

Harmontown

For several years now, the NBC comedy series "Community" has evaded cancellation like a ninja. It earned five seasons on the TV network after nearly getting canceled several times, and when they finally axed it before the sixth season, Yahoo Screen revived it at the last minute. And one of the reasons the show has gotten such a big cult following is because of series creator Dan Harmon. The writer and producer has become known for his cynicism and blunt attitude along with his hard work and clever writing. Now the documentary Harmontown has followed him on a podcast and live performance tour, complete with interviews with collaborators like Sarah Silverman, Jack Black, Joel McHale and many more. Watch!

And now you can get a look at the film that clocks in at over three hours long as the first US trailer has arrived showcasing the story of a small hotel owner, his wife (and her sister) who are at odds with each other as the winter weather becomes more fierce, forcing everyone into an inescapable, tense environment from which they can't leave as long as the snow keeps up.

Hilary Swank Struggles with ALS in First Trailer for 'You're Not You'

You're Not You

Awareness of ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gherig's disease) has been raised exponentially thanks to the online charity trend of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, with donations going to the ALS Association, aiming to find a cure for the disease that attacks the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. All the talk about support to fight disease is mere coincidence as a film called You're Not You is on the way featuring Hilary Swank as a famous pianist who suddenly finds herself diagnosed by the disease, and hires an unconventional assistant, Emmy Rossum, to help her cope. It looks pretty conventional and very melodramatic, but also pretty uplifting on some level, I guess. Watch!
