James Marsden & Friends Hide a Murder in Delayed 'The Loft' Trailer

The Loft

While I wouldn't say anyone is eagerly awaiting The Loft, the film has been sitting around for a couple years, waiting for release on the big screen. The thriller is finally heading to theaters next month, and one more trailer for the film starring Karl Urban, James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Eric Stonestreet and Matthias Schoenaerts has arrived. The five actors play a group of friends who have a secret loft for secret sexy times with various women, but their friendship suddenly gets much darker as the body of a dead women is discovered there, and they're all more than willing to turn on the other to avoid the consequences.

Extended UK TV Spot, Four Character Posters for 'Jupiter Ascending'

Jupiter Ascending

With all the love for Guardians of the Galaxy this year and the excitement for Star Wars: The Force Awakens next year, Warner Bros. Pictures is hoping that you don't forget about their space adventure Jupiter Ascending coming in February with Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. The film hails from The Matrix masterminds Andy & Lana Wachowski, and this looks like a big helping of sci-fi fun from the new extended TV spot from the United Kingdom (there's also four character posters). It may not be quite as smart as the aforementioned, groundbreaking sci-fi flick, but maybe that's the idea. Frankly, I see this film bombing pretty hard, but I think those who do give it a chance may just enjoy themselves. Watch below!

Jason Statham Has No Limits in First US Trailer for 'Wild Card' Thriller

Wild Card

"One way or another, this is my last night in Vegas." After an international trailer gave us our first look at Simon West's latest action thriller Wild Card starring his Expendables 2 star Jason Statham, the first domestic trailer has arrived, and there's a lot going on. Statham is lethal professionally, and after helping a friend who is beat (and seemingly raped) by a thug, he helps her get revenge. But the thug's father (Milo Ventimiglia) decides he wants to retaliate. Meanwhile, Statham keeps playing blackjack to get out of some bad luck, but he keeps finding it in other ways elsewhere. It's pretty standard Statham fare. Watch below!

Chris Hemsworth Hacks & Runs in 'Blackhat' Thriller Second Trailer

Blackhat

"The moment you connect, you lose control." The latest film from Michael Mann, a cyber thriller called Blackhat, is getting released in the dumping ground of early January. However, we're starting to think perhaps that's only because it's not a big blockbusters, and it's not an awards contender, but that doesn't mean it's bad. This actually looks like a solid thriller from the director of Heat in this second trailer, but my only concern is that the fears inspired by real-life technological threats are much scarier and thrilling in theory (as they would be in real-life) than they are realized on the big screen with Chris Hemsworth.

Watch: Fight Back in Full Trailer for 'Divergent' Sequel 'Insurgent'

The Divergent Series: Insurgent

"This is the only chance to rescue what little civilization we have left." After a nightmare teased The Divergent Series sequel Insurgent, the full theatrical trailer for the next chapter in the sci-fi tale has arrived. Shailene Woodley and the other rebels are still being chased, but this time it's because the leader of the Erudite (Kate Winslet) is on the hunt for a powerful Divergent to use a powerful device she's obtained. The stakes are higher, and it looks like the budget is too, since this looks bigger and better than the first. We also get a first look at Naomi Watts as a new ally, and Shailene Woodley fighting herself. Watch below!

Taylor Lautner Flips a Lot in Parkour Action Thriller Trailer 'Tracers'

Tracers

If you thought we'd seen the last of mannequin actor Taylor Lautner, think again. The star of The Twilight Saga is back, and he's still trying really hard to be a real boy with his latest role in the action thriller Traces. This time, Lautner uses his physical prowess to partake in parkour, making him a reliable bike messenger in New York City. After meeting a young woman named Nikki (Marie Avgeropoulos), learns that he can make some serious cash if he uses his developing parkour skills to help a group of street criminals pull off some heists. It looks about as generic as you'd expect, and sadly, not even the action looks all that fun. It would be better if this were about Brodie Bruce and a team of fellow comic book inkers battling injustice.

Watch: Stephen Colbert Interviews Smaug from 'The Hobbit' Trilogy

Stephen Colbert & Smaug

After posing for a photoshoot inspired by Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of The Hobbit, late night satirist and future inheritor of "The Late Show with David Letterman," Stephen Colbert, continued his love for all things J.R.R. Tolkien by interviewing the one and only Smaug the tyrannical, the dragon under the mountain. And this isn't just an interview with a puppet, but rather a fully animated version of the dragon, or at least as much as would fit in the small space of Colbert's studio. I wonder how much it cost to get this feature together, especially since Benedict Cumberbatch clearly recorded his voice for it. Watch!

Watch: Teaser for HBO's Chilling Doc 'Tales of the Grim Sleeper'

Tales of the Grim Sleeper

Pretty much every month, HBO has a great new documentary premiering, and one of them has already played at the New York Film Festival. Tales of the Grim Sleeper dives into the life and crimes of Lonnie Franklin Jr., a man arrested as the suspected murderer of a string of young black women. But what's really scary is that police seemed to ignore this ongoing murder case despite claiming a victory after 20 years of investigations. Director Nick Broomfield exposes the past of Franklin, from the friends who knew the killer, to those who lost someone to his vicious crimes, but he also exposes something else very horrifying.

Watch: The Trilogy Trailer for 'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies'

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All right, well, the trailer we posted over a month ago for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies was supposed to be the final trailer, but now we promise this is actually the last trailer for the final installment of Peter Jackson's fantasy trilogy. Much like the fanmade trailer for the entire journey Bilbo Baggins has taken, this one goes through some highlights of An Unexpected Journey and The Desolation of Smaug, leading to this climactic battle that will link The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings (though there's still some 50 years in between). Are you ready to go back to Middle-Earth #OneLastTime?

New Trailer + Poster for Hitoshi Matsumoto's Kinky, Wild Film 'R100'

R100 Trailer

"No one under 100 will be admitted!" Dang this looks crazy. Drafthouse Films has debuted their official US trailer for Hitoshi Matsumoto's R100, a funky, wacky Japanese thriller about a man (Nao Ohmori of Ichi the Killer) who joins an S&M club and gets into some crazy shit when dominatrices appear and kick his ass anytime of the day. The title R100 is a riff on the Japanese movie rating system, whose equivalent to NC-17 is R18, and this is playing on the idea that it's not okay for anyone under 100. Ha. The new poster is a bit too much, aiming to sell it purely on the sex/S&M angle, but the trailer hints at the absurdity of the film in so many other ways. This definitely isn't for everyone, but it's not just for S&M fans either, I think. Have fun.

Watch: Sean Penn is Targeted in Pierre Morel's 'The Gunman' Trailer

The Gunman

"It's the ones who aren't after you who do you in, in the end." It's been about a year and a half since we got a first look at Sean Penn in Pierre Morel's action thriller The Gunman, and for some reason the film has taken a long time to hit the big screen. But it's finally arriving next spring, and the first trailer has arrived, showcasing an impressive cast that also includes Javier Bardem, Idris Elba and more. In the film, Penn plays a Special Forces soldier who ends up getting targeted by his own colleagues. Basically, it's Sean Penn's turn to be an aging bad ass, and it seems to pack the same punch as the first Taken movie too.

Trailer for Sundance Doc 'The Visit' - Are We Ready to Meet Aliens?

The Visit

"This film documents an event that has never taken place..." Chills. This documentary explores the idea of what would happen, and how we would respond, if aliens came to Earth. Titled The Visit, from filmmaker (not actor) Michael Madsen (of Into Eternity: A Film for the Future), the documentary is premiering at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in January and it looks like a must see (it's definitely on my radar now). As explained by Sundance, utilizing "unprecedented access to" the United Nations' Office for Outer Space Affairs (such an office exists?), and "leading space scientists and space agencies," the doc wonders how we would respond and what might happen. I can't wait. "Our scenario begins with the arrival. Your arrival."

Watch: '[REC] 4: Apocalypse' Red Band Trailer Gets Bloody on a Boat

[Rec] 4: Apocalypse

The found footage horror franchise [REC] began back in 2007, and it's still going strong, at least overseas, with the fourth installment [REC] 4: Apocalypse. After wreaking havoc on a wedding in the last film, this one takes the action to an oil tanker, and also brings back Manuela Velasco as the young television reporter who was stuck in the quarantined building from the original film. After making it out alive, they've isolated her on this boat, but that may not be enough to contain the virus. This is a red band trailer with lots of blood and gore, so it's probably not best to fire it up around kids or at the dinner table. Watch it below!
