Second Trailer for Comedy 'Home Again' Starring Reese Witherspoon

Home Again Trailer

"Let's just do our best not to cramp each other's style." Open Road Films has debuted a full trailer for the comedy Home Again, the feature directorial debut of young filmmaker Hallie Meyers-Shyer. This amusing original Hollywood comedy is about a recently divorced woman who moves back home to Los Angeles with her two young daughters. She decides to take in three aspiring filmmaker boys who share her place with her, and disrupt things in both helpful ways and troubling ways. Reese Witherspoon stars, with Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, Candice Bergen, Nat Wolff, Jon Rudnitsky, Pico Alexander, P.J. Byrne. There is something about this film that is really annoying to me. The first teaser was good, this trailer not so much.

First Full Trailer for 'Daddy's Home 2' Comedy Sequel No One Wanted

Daddy's Home 2 Trailer

"Look who's here!" Paramount has debuted the first official trailer for Daddy's Home 2, the sequel to the comedy Daddy's Home, about a stepfather who has to deal with a crazy biological father. Why did they make a sequel to this? I don't remember anyone saying anything good about it or hearing about it being a hit. Ugh. Daddy's Home 2 brings back director Sean Anders, as well as stars Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, and Linda Cardellini. Newcomers for this sequel include John Cena, John Lithgow, and surprisingly, Mel Gibson. This looks as terrible as you're expecting, with cheap, excruciating humor and an absurdly cliche scenario that honestly seems kind of offensive. But whatever. I definitely won't be seeing this load of junk.

Must Watch: First Trailer for 'Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press'

Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press Trailer

"He's doing this because he wants to bring Gawker down." Netflix has premiered the official trailer for the documentary Nobody Speak: Trials of the Free Press, the latest from acclaimed filmmaker Brian Knappenberger, of the docs We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists and The Internet's Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz. Knappenberger is one of my favorite doc filmmakers, as he understands the internet better than most people, and always sheds a light on the truth no matter how hard it is to find. Nobody Speak dives deep into the case of Hulk Hogan (aka Terry Bollea) vs Gawker. Unfortunately, Gawker lost the trial and they had to shut down because of this defeat. The film looks at how the idea of a free press is fading away, and the most powerful people with the most money are taking control over everything. This premiered at Sundance and it's a riveting, frightening, remarkable doc that you should take time to watch.

Official Trailer for 'Bronx Gothic' Doc About Artist Okwui Okpokwasili

Bronx Gothic Doc Trailer

"I wanted a voice screaming out into the wilderness of 'I am here and this is what is happening to me.'" Grasshopper Film has debuted an outstanding official trailer for a performance documentary titled Bronx Gothic, profiling the performances by and life of acclaimed artist/dancer Okwui Okpokwasili. This is the latest doc from director Andrew Rossi, who previously made Page One: Inside the New York Times, Ivory Tower, and The First Monday in May. Okwui has African parents, but she grew up in Brooklyn, and brings all of that to her powerful theatrical performances. This trailer gives an excellent introduction to who she is, what she's trying to do, and how she tells her story with her body in front of mesmerized crowds. This looks like an eye-opening, emotional doc that examines the breathtaking work of a truly gifted artist. Have a look.

Full Trailer for Time-Loop Horror 'Happy Death Day' from Blumhouse

Happy Death Day Trailer

"I've already lived through this day! Somebody's going to kill me tonight…" Universal has unveiled the first full-length trailer for a new original horror movie titled Happy Death Day, formerly/also known as Half to Death while it was still in development. Directed by Christopher Landon, the time-loop horror story is about a college student who relives the day of her murder until she finds out who the killer is. The film stars Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, and Phi Vu. I'm always interested in time-loop movies (and we already had one this year - Before I Fall) and this looks like a fun horror twist on the concept. I want to see how she solves her own murder. Dive in.

Impressive Second Trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's 'Detroit' Riots Movie

Detroit Trailer

"It's a war zone out there. They're destroying the city." Annapurna has debuted a second trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's next film titled Detroit, about the Detroit Riots in 1967. The film features an ensemble cast of characters to tell the story of why so many citizens decided to rise up, and how the riot expanded so quickly to become so massive that the President had to send in federal troops to get things under control. The huge cast includes John Boyega, Jack Reynor, Will Poulter, Ben O'Toole, Hannah Murray, Anthony Mackie, Jacob Latimore, Algee Smith, Joseph David-Jones, Kaitlyn Dever, Jason Mitchell, John Krasinski, Jeremy Strong, and Laz Alonso. This trailer focuses on Boyega's character, who got mixed up in all the chaos. I like the appearance at the end by the real guy. This is looking better and better.

First Trailer for 'Goodbye Christopher Robin' with Domhnall Gleeson

Goodbye Christopher Robin Trailer

"Hardly anyone could remember what happiness was like. But something happened that changed all that." Fox Searchlight has unveiled the first trailer for the film Goodbye Christopher Robin, telling the true story of beloved children's author A. A. Milne, as played by Domhnall Gleeson in the film. Set in England in the early 1900s, the story is all about how Milne came up with Winnie the Pooh, inspired by his son Christopher Robin and his stuffed animals. Along with Gleeson, the cast includes Margot Robbie as Daphne Milne, Will Tilston as C.R., plus Kelly Macdonald, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Stephen Campbell Moore. This seems to be a lovely relief from the heaviness of the world, focusing on the good things and the happy things that we can appreciate. There's some cool shots in this, hopefully it's a fine film.

Official US Trailer for Coogan & Brydon's Sequel 'The Trip to Spain'

The Trip to Spain Trailer

"We should enjoy this moment guys, we're in the sweet spot." IFC Films has debuted another new official US trailer for The Trip to Spain, to compliment the first teaser trailer from a few months ago. The Trip to Spain is the second sequel in The Trip series (after The Trip to Italy in 2014), starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon as friends who go on a road trip wining and dining and doing impersonations. Early word from critics is that this is just as hilarious and ridiculous as the first two films, and might be a good bit of entertainment to catch at your local art house later this summer. The cast also includes Marta Barrio and Claire Keelan. These films don't seem like they should work as well as they do, but damnit, they are fun.

First Trailer for Intense Survival Film 'Jungle' Starring Daniel Radcliffe

Jungle Movie Trailer

"This is the last frontier on Earth. The jungle shows us what we really are." An official trailer has debuted for a new survival thriller titled Jungle, based on the true story of Yossi Ghinsberg (and his book), who got lost in the Amazon rainforests with a few of his friends. This is the next film from Australian director Greg McLean, who also directed the action horror The Belko Experiment in theaters earlier this year and the Wolf Creek films. Daniel Radcliffe stars as Yossi, along with a cast including Alex Russell, Joel Jackson and Thomas Kretschmann. This looks crazy intense and brutal, which is expected for a survival movie, but I'm impressed by the attention to detail and beauty of the Amazon jungle that McLean has captured. The film is premiering at the Melbourne Film Festival, which is where this first trailer comes from. Watch below.

Official Trailer for Doc 'Whitney: Can I Be Me' About Whitney Houston

Whitney: Can I Be Me Doc Trailer

"Success doesn't change you, fame does." Showtime has debuted the first official trailer for a documentary titled Whitney: Can I Be Me, telling the full story of singer/actress Whitney Houston's extraordinary life and tragic death. The doc premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, and will be released by Showtime later this summer. Houston is the only artist to chart seven consecutive #1 Billboard Hot 100 songs, and she released seven studio albums and two soundtrack albums over the course of her singing career. She was found dead in her bathtub inside of her guest room at a hotel in Los Angeles in 2012. This trailer is a good sell, ending with the claim that she died of a broken heart. This looks like it's worth a watch.

Second Trailer for 'Ferdinand' Movie About a Bull Who Loves Flowers

Ferdinand Movie Trailer

"Built to fight, born to love." 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have unveiled a second official trailer for the animated film Ferdinand, about a bull raised by a family in Spain and taken to be a fighter, who really prefers to smell flowers instead of battle against matadors. John Cena voices Ferdinand the bull, which might be one of the best voice choices all year. The rest of the voice cast includes Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, David Tennant, Anthony Anderson, Flula Borg, Jerrod Carmichael, Boris Kodjoe, and Raúl Esparza. This looks charming and heartwarming, with a good message about animals/people being more than they seem on the surface.

Official Trailer for Another PTSD Film 'Battle Scars' with Zane Holtz

Battle Scars Trailer

"True valor does not require recognition." Gravitas Ventures has debuted a trailer for a drama titled Battle Scars, yet another movie about a soldier with PTSD returning home to America. The description says this "examines the war experience as well as the wrenching change many veterans face upon returning home." I hate to say it, but these kind of PTSD movies with this exact pitch are a dime a dozen these days. There's nothing creative or unique or interesting about them anymore. But maybe that's just me. Battle Scars stars Zane Holtz (seen on "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series"), Heather McComb, Ryan Eggold, Fairuza Balk, and David James Elliot. This does not look like it's worth your time, but the trailer is free to watch.
