Transformers: The Last Knight

"You want to know, don't you? Why the keep coming here…" Yes, I do, but without sitting through another movie - please? Paramount has unleashed one final trailer for Michael Bay's latest Transformers movie, titled in full Transformers: The Last Knight. At this point, you probably already know whether or not you're going to see this movie in theaters, and don't need to see any more footage. But this final trailer packs in a whole bunch of epic, VFX-filled eye candy. The huge cast stars Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Hopkins, Laura Haddock, John Goodman, Stanley Tucci, John Turturro, Josh Duhamel, Isabela Moner, Santiago Cabrera, and Liam Garrigan as King Arthur; plus the same voices as before: Peter Cullen, Frank Welker and Ken Watanabe. If you're curious to watch even more footage, then fire this up below.

Emmanuelle Riva in Trailer for Abel & Gordon's Comedy 'Lost in Paris'

Lost in Paris Trailer

"Will you dance with me?" Oscilloscope Labs has released an official US trailer for the whimsical, quirky comedy Lost in Paris, made by (and starring) the filmmakers Dominique Abel and Fiona Gordon, known as "Abel & Gordon". This actually has the feel of a comedy made by Wes Anderson if he was French, with a overtly charming and amusing visual style along with absurd but entertaining humor. Emmanuelle Riva, who passed away earlier this year, plays Aunt Martha, who sends a letter to her niece which prompts her to travel to Paris to find out what's going on. There, she gets in all kinds of trouble and meets a lovable goofball named Dom, as played by Abel & Gordon. This looks surprisingly unique and totally fun to watch.

Watch: The End of a Relationship in Short Film 'Closure' by Dan Marcus

Closure Short Film

"Just put on an old record… helps loosen the mind." A new short film to watch this week that will make you think about your own relationship. This is titled Closure, and it's the latest short directed by filmmaker Dan Marcus, who also happens to write for this site (see his work here). Dan previously directed the sci-fi thriller short titled Streamline, which we featured back in 2014 when it first premiered. He followed that film up with this one, a passion project about two young lovers at the end of their relationship. It's about when two people know the ending is near but they can't bring themselves to face that reality. This is a bit longer than a normal short, but it's worth getting into for a good story about the challenges of relationships.

First Groovy Trailer for Grateful Dead Documentary 'Long Strange Trip'

Long Strange Trip Trailer

"We're the same as you, you're the same as us." Get ready to rock 'n roll! Amazon Studios has debuted a full-length trailer for the documentary Long Strange Trip, an extensive look into the history and music of the iconic rock band known as the Grateful Dead. "Artfully assembling candid interviews with the band, road crew, family members and notable Deadheads," director Amir Bar-Lev "reveals the untold history of the Dead and the freewheeling psychedelic subculture that sprouted up around it." Featuring interviews and footage of Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, and Bob Weir; and executive produced by Martin Scorsese. There's lots of footage from their concerts, plus never-before-seen interviews and photos for Dead Heads (and newbies) to enjoy. This premiered at Sundance and also played at SXSW and seems like another definitive music doc for everyone to appreciate, even if you're not the biggest fan. Dive right in.

Emma Stone vs Steve Carell in Tennis in Trailer for 'Battle of the Sexes'

Battle of the Sexes Trailer

"I'm done talking, let's play!" Yes!! Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for the indie sports comedy Battle of the Sexes, the latest feature from the directors of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks. The comedy stars Emma Stone and Steve Carell and is set in the 1970s, based on the true story of a wacky tennis match between these two individuals. The name is spot on - it was (and still is) a "battle of the sexes", but the spunky awkwardness of the whole thing makes for hilarious moments for us to now enjoy on the big screen. The cast includes Elisabeth Shue, Andrea Riseborough, Natalie Morales, Alan Cumming, Eric Christian Olsen, Sarah Silverman, and Martha MacIsaac. This looks as good as I was hoping, perhaps even better, can't wait to see it. I dig the vintage Fox Searchlight logo, and I love the poster as well.

A Fight For Freedom - Final Trailer for 'War for the Planet of the Apes'

War for the Planet of the Apes Trailer

"I refuse to accept the end of man." 20th Century Fox has revealed one final trailer for the new War for the Planet of the Apes movie, directed again by Matt Reeves, continuing (and likely ending) this latest trilogy of Apes movies. The last trailer for this is one of my favorite trailers this year so far, and this movie is most #1 most anticipated of the year (followed by Blade Runner 2049, The Last Jedi, and Dunkirk). Andy Serkis returns to play Caesar, and the cast includes Woody Harrelson as his adversary, the Colonel. Also starring Judy Greer as Cornelia, Max Lloyd-Jones as Blue Eyes, plus Steve Zahn, Chad Rook, Ty Olsson, Aleks Paunovic and Sara Canning. I'm completely sold on this movie already, so I don't need to see any more. But this is an superb trailer that plays up the epic feeling of this man vs ape war. Must watch.

Official Trailer for Safdie Bros' 'Good Time' Starring Robert Pattinson

Good Time Trailer

"Are you feeling this?!" A24 has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Good Time, from directors Josh Safdie and Benny Safdie, the brothers behind the films Heaven Knows What and Daddy Longlegs. This film is debuting at the Cannes Film Festival, which kicks off this week, which is also why this trailer is being released to connect to the upcoming premiere in France at the festival. Robert Pattinson stars as "Connie", a wild kid in New York who gets even deeper into the crime world in an effort to get his brother out of jail. This trailer does a nice job of introducing the story and setting up everything, so dive right in. Also starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Barkhad Abdi, & Benny Safdie (as Connie's brother). This looks like it has an exceptional performance from Pattinson, so at least there's that to look out for in here. Enjoy.

Teaser Trailer for 'It Came From the Desert' Movie About Giant Ants

It Came From the Desert Trailer

"We're trapped by this giant ant!" File this one under "Wait, this film really exists?!" Roger! Pictures out of Finland has launched the first trailer for a movie called It Came From the Desert, adapted from a video game in the 1980s about giant ants. The game is obviously inspired by the sci-fi classic Them! (also about giant ants) and thus this is clearly an updated version of the giant ant sci-fi story. Sadly, it looks more like a SyFy movie than anything I'm excited to see, but maybe I should've expected that. This film stars Mark Arnold, Harry Lister Smith, Vanessa Grasse, Alex Mills, James Alper, Claudia Trujillo, Callum McGowan, and Aino Sirje. The coolest part in this is the first reveal of someone being impaled through the chest, but the ants themselves look terrible. Hopefully they're much better in the final version. Have fun.

First Trailer for Finnish Superhero Movie 'Rendel' Made by Jesse Haaja

Rendel Movie Trailer

"What the hell is Rendel?" The first official trailer has arrived online for a Finnish, futuristic superhero film titled Rendel, which is the name of the masked superhero character that it's about. Created by the film's director, Jesse Haaja, Rendel is a "faceless" superhero fighting against the VALA criminal organization in the "cold dystopia" of a fictionalized version of a Finnish city called Mikkeli. This "superhero story" is a bit darker and grittier than what we see out of Hollywood, but still has some of the same tropes of the genre. Starring Finnish actor Kristofer Gummerus as Rendel, along with Matti Onnismaa, Minttu Tamski, Roosa-Maria Makinen, Alina Tomnikov, Bianca Bradey, and Johnny Vivash. This looks it could be cool, but I'm also a bit worried it might also be straight-to-VHS level terrible. Check out the footage below.

Marilyn Manson Stars in First Trailer for 'Let Me Make You a Martyr'

Let Me Make You a Martyr Trailer

"My daddy used to sing me a song…" FilmRise has debuted the first official trailer for a small town indie thriller titled Let Me Make You a Martyr, from filmmakers Corey Asraf & John Swab. This is sort of a continuation of their 2014 short film Judas' Chariot. The film stars Marilyn Manson as a hitman hired by two adopted siblings who devise a plan to kill their abusive father. The cast includes Mark Boone Junior, Sam Quartin, Niko Nicotera, Michael Potts, William Lee Scott, and Slaine. This is an intriguing trailer that uses one chilling scene with Manson to introduce us to the film, and it's very effective. See below.

'Homie-Moon' Craziness in Official 'Random Tropical Paradise' Trailer

Random Tropical Paradise Trailer

"We're in a Fast & Furious movie right now, nothing has to make sense." Gunpowder & Sky has debuted a trailer for a wacky comedy called Random Tropical Paradise, about two friends who end up going on a honeymoon together. The story is that, when one guy discovers his soon-to-be-wife is cheating on him, he cancels the wedding. But his friend suggests that instead of cancelling the honeymoon, they turn it into a "homie-moon" and take the trip to this random tropical paradise together and have fun while they can. As with all tropical paradise movies, this dips into the drug boss trope and there's clearly a few drug trip scenes in this. Starring Bryan Greenberg, Brooks Wheelan, Joe Pantoliano, Spencer Grammer, Brittany Furlan, Beth Littleford, Kyle Kinane, & Alphonso McAuley. This looks a bit too crazy for my tastes.
