First Trailer for Steven Soderbergh's New Heist Comedy 'Logan Lucky'

Logan Lucky Trailer

"They gotta know what we want ’em to know." Bleecker Street has debuted the first official trailer for the new Steven Soderbergh heist film, titled Logan Lucky. We all thought Soderbergh was done making new movies, but he decided to jump back into the game and bring us another goofy comedy. Channing Tatum and Adam Driver star as brothers who attempt to pull off a heist during a NASCAR race in North Carolina. The ensemble cast includes Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Katherine Waterson, Dwight Yoakam, Sebastian Stan, Brian Gleeson, Jack Quaid, with Hilary Swank, and introducing Daniel Craig as "Joe Bang". Ohh this looks like it's going to be so much fun. I'm loving all the southern accents, the cast is totally nuts, and I can't wait to see if they actually pull off the heist or not. Rock 'n roll.

'Baby Driver' Making Of Featurette Shows How Real the Stunts Were

Baby Driver Featurette

"That's all completely real, there's no sort of trickery in that sequence." This is awesome! Sony has dropped a new making of featurette for Edgar Wright's Baby Driver showing how they pulled off some of the crazy car chase action sequences in the movie. Start by watching the trailer, then follow up with this featurette. They show bits of the driver training, as well as the actual filming rigs and techniques used on set to make this all seem real. And craziest of all is that half of it is real, they shot on location in Atlanta and most of the car stunts were real. Ansel Elgort stars as Baby, with a cast including Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, with Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx. I am so so excited to see this. Can't wait!

Trailer for Lost Silent Film Collection Doc 'Dawson City: Frozen Time'

Dawson City: Frozen Time

"It was an incredible story.." Kino Lorber has debuted the official trailer for a very unique cinema history documentary titled Dawson City: Frozen Time, that is a must-see for any die-hard fans of silent films. This beautiful doc tells the bizarre true story of a lost silent film collection, lost for over 50 years until being discovered buried in a sub-arctic swimming pool deep in the Yukon Territory. Dawson City is a gold rush town located about 350 miles south of the Arctic Circle in Canada, situated at the confluence of the Klondike and Yukon rivers and rests on a bed of permafrost. It was the "end of a film distribution line", and movies became popular in the town despite its distance. The old reels were discovered by a construction company in 1978, then recovered and restored. The film features a lovely original score composed by Alex Somers, from Sigur Ros, who also scored Captain Fantastic. This looks quite charming and fascinating - take a look.

International Teaser Trailer for Fatih Akin's 'In the Fade' Playing Cannes

In the Fade Trailer

Get a glimpse at one of the films playing at Cannes. A French teaser trailer has debuted for the German film titled In the Fade, directed by German-Turkish filmmaker Fatih Akin. This just premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday, to mostly positive reviews from critics. Prominent German actress Diane Kruger stars in what is apparently her very first German role playing a woman named Katja, who goes for revenge after a bombing that kills her husband and son. The cast includes Numan Acar, Ulrich Tukur, Johannes Krisch, Siir Eloglu, Denis Moschitto, Jessica McIntyre, and Ulrich Brandhoff. I saw this film at Cannes and I think it's a great film, playing strong on emotions but also providing much to think about. I always appreciate films that can inspire good discussions, and this is definitely one that will.

Official Trailer for Netflix's 'Shimmer Lake' Film with Benjamin Walker

Shimmer Lake Trailer

"Once you open that door there's no going back!" Netflix has unveiled an official trailer for a new film titled Shimmer Lake, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Oren Uziel. This small-town crime mystery is told in reverse, going backwards day-by-day, telling the story of the local sheriff's attempt to solve a bank robbery and find the criminals. Benjamin Walker (from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) stars as the sheriff, with an eclectic cast of indie actors including Rainn Wilson, Stephanie Sigman, Rob Corddry, Wyatt Russell, Ron Livingston, Adam Pally, and John Michael Higgins. This seems like it's riding the coattails of all the buzz about small-town crime TV shows and films, but I'm still curious to check it out.

First Official Trailer for Taylor Sheridan's Snow-Noir Film 'Wind River'

Wind River Trailer

"You're looking for clues, but you're missing all the signs." The Weinstein Company has unveiled an official trailer for the indie thriller Wind River, the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (of Sicario and Hell or High Water previously). This film is a "snow-noir" thriller about a murder mystery set in the snowy mountains of Wyoming, mostly around an Indian Reservation where the locals clash with the government authorities. Jeremy Renner stars, with Elizabeth Olsen as a FBI agent sent to investigate. The cast includes Jon Bernthal, Martin Sensmeier, Julia Jones, Kelsey Asbille, Graham Greene, and Gil Birmingham. I first saw this at the Sundance Film Festival and loved it - saying in my review that "Sheridan is as talented of a director as he is a screenwriter." It's also showing at the Cannes Film Festival.

Third Trailer for 'Despicable Me 3' Sequel Takes Gru Back to His Roots

Despicable Me 3 Trailer

"Become a villain again!" Sometimes you just gotta get back to your villain roots. Universal has revealed the third trailer for Illumination Entertainment's next sequel Despicable Me 3, hitting theaters at the end of June. The story brings back the lovable villain Gru (and his minions) for another misadventure, this time involving his long lost twin brother Dru (who is also voiced by Steve Carell) who tries to get him back into the villain business. The voice cast includes Kristen Wiig returning as Lucy Wilde, along with Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Michael Beattie, Dana Gaier, plus also "South Park's" Trey Parker as the stuck-in-the-80s supervillain Balthazar Bratt. This trailer really sells the complete story and packs in tons of finished footage from this sequel, which looks pretty much just like the other two films before it. Have fun.

Neill Blomkamp is Testing Ideas for Original Sci-Fi Projects on Steam

Oats Studios

What is Neill Blomkamp up to now? Ever since the sad news broke that his Alien reboot with Sigourney Weaver was being canned thanks to Ridley Scott taking over the franchise again, we've been curious about where Blomkamp would head next. Is he working on any movies? What is he developing next? We don't have any definitive answers yet, but we do have some exciting teases for potential science fiction projects in the works. Blomkamp has been tweeting since April about a partnership he has with Steam (the video game platform/distribution service). Apparently he has launched a new development studio called Oats Studio, where they're creating all kinds of crazy cool sci-fi projects. And what they want to do is release teases for them as short films on Steam in order to test and see which ones might become feature-length films. I'm in.

Watch: Jacob Tremblay Has a Unique Face in First Trailer for 'Wonder'

Wonder Trailer

"You're the toughest kid in that school - show them!" Lionsgate has revealed the first official trailer for an upcoming film titled Wonder, adapted from R.J. Palacio's book of the same name. Wonder stars acclaimed young actor Jacob Tremblay (seen in Room, Before I Wake, The Book of Henry), who plays Auggie, a kid with an awkward facial difference who decides to go to public school despite being made fun of by all the other students. He makes a few new friends who help him learn to be himself. The full cast includes Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as Auggie's parents, also featuring Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin, Sonia Braga, Izabela Vidovic, Ali Liebert, and Bryce Gheisar. This looks incredibly charming and, I don't mean to be so cheesy, but "wonder"ful. It's set for release in the fall right in the middle of the awards season.

Spidey Keeps NYC Safe in Latest Trailers for 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'

Spider-Man: Homecoming Trailer

"What are you hiding, Peter?" Sony has unleashed two more trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming, hitting theaters in the middle of the summer. Tom Holland stars as (the new) Peter Parker, who was first introduced in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War. This story continues with Parker returning from the events in that movie, still trying to figure out his place as a teenager in NYC. The focus seems to be entirely on the city, and it's cool to see him caring about stolen bikes and old ladies. The full cast includes Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Michael Keaton as The Vulture, as well as Donald Glover, Robert Downey Jr., Martin Starr, Logan Marshall-Green, Angourie Rice, Hannibal Buress, and Zendaya. I like the US version of these trailers more, better footage. Looking forward to this.
