Third Trailer for Seth Gordon's 'Baywatch' Movie Actually Looks Good

Baywatch Movie Trailer

"You've got one job - make sure swim happy white people don't drown." Paramount released a third trailer for the summer comedy Baywatch, the movie, from director Seth Gordon. We've seen a few other trailers for this movie so far, and yet as much as I want to hate this movie, it actually looks good. Seriously, it looks laugh-out-loud funny, and weird, and self-aware, and full of odd but genuinely amusing comedic moments. Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson star as two feuding, hunky Baywatch lifeguards; along with Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Pamela Anderson, Ilfenesh Hadera, Charlotte McKinney, Kelly Rohrbach, Hannibal Buress, plus of course David Hasselhoff. As another website said, this is the kind of movie you're going to pretend you don't want to see this summer, but will sneak into a showing and enjoy.

Spring Break Vacation Posting Update - We'll Return Again Next Week

Athens Sunset

It's time for a brief pause in the usual excitement. I'm currently on a vacation, taking a spring break holiday for the week. We'll return to normal next week with regular updates again. Last year I took a life-long-dream trip to Nepal in March and stopped writing anything for the entire month, this time it's just a week. It's also my birthday this week, and I'm looking forward to just relaxing and taking my mind off of everything. The big new releases opening on March 24th, this weekend, are CHIPS, the Power Rangers movie, and the sci-fi space thriller Life. We'll be catching up with any trailers as they arrive, but in the meantime, there's nothing major going on. Thank you for understanding, and for your continued support. We'll be back soon.

Official Trailer for 'Burden' Documentary About the Artist Chris Burden

Burden Doc Trailer

"I'm not about death, I didn't want to die, but I wanted to come close." Magnolia has debuted an official trailer for a documentary titled Burden, telling the story of artist Chris Burden, who made his place in art history in 1971 with dangerous performances. The film features Burden himself, as well as Jonathan Gold, Marina Abramovic, Frank Gehry, Alexis Smith, and Brian Sewell. The description says the doc examines "the artist’s works and private life with an innovative mix of still-potent videos of his 70s performances, personal videos and audio recordings, friends fellow students and colleagues, critics’ comments and latter day footage at his Topanga Canyon studio, all peppered with his thoughts and musings through the years." This definitely looks fascinating, and I'm intrigued to learn more about Burden and his motivations for this.

For the Kids - Second Trailer for Bay's 'Transformers: The Last Knight'

Transformers: The Last Knight Trailer

"You think I'm afraid of you?!" Paramount has launched a new full-length trailer for Michael Bay's latest Transformers sequel, titled Transformers: The Last Knight. This new trailer is totally focused on the kids in the movie, a cast of youngsters who have to deal with the Decepticons coming back for revenge. Why the focus on the kids? Because this trailer was created exclusively to run in theaters with Beauty and the Beast, of course. The full cast includes 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. This is a very odd trailer, I don't think I like it much, but points for doing something different.

Second Trailer for Fox's 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul' Sequel

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul

"There's a new hero who dares to be… wimpy." Fox has debuted the official theatrical trailer for the latest sequel in the comedy series Diary of a Wimpy Kid, this one subtitled The Long Haul, about a family road trip. This is the fourth movie in the cinematic franchise based on the series of books by Jeff Kinney. Young actor Jason Drucker plays Greg, who convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother's 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: to attend a nearby gamer convention. The cast includes Jason Ian Drucker, Charlie Wright, Owen Asztalos, Tom Everett Scott, and Alicia Silverstone. Surprisingly, this trailer is better than the teaser trailer but cuts out all the gaming convention footage. This actually looks like it might be an enjoyable road trip comedy, but I'm still not going to watch it.

Rebooting 'The Matrix' Furthers Hollywood's Obsession with Nostalgia

The Matrix

Everything old is new again. It was revealed this week that Warner Bros is currently considering rebooting The Matrix and making a new series of movies. Keanu Reeves had hinted at the possibility of returning for a fourth Matrix for some time. However, WB appears to be interested in forging a new path. In a world full of endless remakes, sequels and reinterpretations, a Matrix re-imagining seems wholly unnecessary. So let's explore why The Matrix needs to be revisited, but not rebooted. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that a film as revered and respected as The Matrix would get a reboot. Even a film as treasured as The Lion King is getting a live-action do-over. So let's explore why The Matrix needs to be revisited, but not rebooted.

Official Trailer for HBO's 'The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks' Movie

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks Trailer

"Science took her cells. Her family reclaimed her story." HBO has unveiled an official trailer for a film titled The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, adapted from the book of the same name, telling the story of Henrietta Lacks. Lacks died of cervical cancer in 1951, but her cells were taken without her permission for medical research, and they eventually became the first "immortal" human cells. Renée Elise Goldsberry plays Henrietta. The movie follows two timelines, the second involving her ancestors fighting to reclaim her name in medical history. Oprah Winfrey stars as Lacks' daughter, with a cast including Rose Byrne, Courtney B. Vance, Lisa Arrindell, and Reed Birney. This is technically a "made-for-TV" movie, but we're making an exception because this is an HBO production, and they're at the top of their game recently.

Meet a Cave Man in First Teaser for Aardman's New Film 'Early Man'

Aardman's Early Man

"You lot are really putting me off!" Huzzah, Aardman is back! It's time to journey back in time to meet the "Early Man" in this new stop-motion animated adventure from Aardman Animation. Early Man is the latest movie from Aardman, telling the story of how an early cave man and his friend, a wild boar named Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game. The voice cast features Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne and Maisie Williams. I wish this trailer showed some of the story, but it's still an amusing teaser and fun introduction. I'm looking forward to seeing more footage.

First Teaser Trailer for Coogan & Brydon's Sequel 'The Trip to Spain'

The Trip to Spain Trailer

"Roll-around-on-the-floor-funny." The first teaser trailer has debuted for the latest sequel to The Trip, the road trip comedy starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon. This latest film is titled The Trip to Spain and it's literally about, as the title says, their trip to Spain. This is fun teaser trailer because it introduces the sequel ever-so-perfectly, not only with quotes and footage of them driving and singing (like idiots), but with the title cards explaining where each film premiered. I wish there was more footage in this teaser, but maybe it's best that we don't see anything else. Better to just go in and experience this. If you loved The Trip or The Trip to Italy before this, make sure you catch this film when it arrives. Hopefully it's just as funny. Dive in.

Julian Barratt Stars in First UK Trailer for British Cop Spoof 'Mindhorn'

Mindhorn

"You can't hide the truth from Mindhorn." Get ready for this. An official trailer has debuted for a British cop spoof movie titled Mindhorn, which actually premiered at the London Film Festival last year. Surprising for a spoof comedy, but that must mean this is way better than expected. Mindhorn is about a washed-up actor named Richard Thorncroft, played by comedian Julian Barratt, who played "Mindhorn" on a 1980s detective show. He has a bionic eye that allows him to literally "see the truth", which is why he has the eye patch. Set in the current day, the film is about Mindhorn returning to the Isle of Man to take on the job of working as a real private detective. This also stars Andrea Riseborough, Essie Davis, Russell Tovey, Simon Farnaby, David Schofield, Nicholas Farrell, Simon Callow, and Steve Coogan. Have fun.

First Trailer for War Drama 'Megan Leavey' About a Marine & Her Dog

Megan Leavey Trailer

"What would you say to Rex, if he were here?" Bleecker Street has unveiled a trailer for a film titled Megan Leavey, telling the story of US Marine Corporal Megan Leavey, played by Kate Mara. Leavey served in Iraq in 2005 and 2006, and was assigned to "clean up" the K9 unit. There she befriended a dog named Rex, who was particularly aggressive when she first met him. She worked with him and trained him and they completed more than 100 missions together, before an IED injured both of them. She then fought to adopt him while home recovering. It's based on a true story, which makes these even more emotional to watch. In addition to Mara, the cast includes Edie Falco, Common, Bradley Whitford, Ramon Rodriguez, and Geraldine James. As a big time dog lover, I'm so into this, doesn't even matter what the footage looks like.

Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Pixar's First Musical Titled 'Coco'

Pixar's Coco Trailer

"The music - it's not just in me, it IS me." Disney has debuted the first official teaser trailer for Pixar's new movie, a musical titled Coco, based around the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead. We don't know much about the plot, but as you can see, it involves a young boy getting lost in the world of the dead while searching for his father. The voice cast includes newcomer Anthony Gonzalez playing Miguel, along with Benjamin Bratt, Gael Garcia Bernal, Renee Victor. As our initial introduction to this original movie from Pixar, this is quite wonderful. I love that we're getting a new Pixar movie that has a dog as a sidekick. Beyond that, it looks like it has the emotion of Monsters Inc in a Mexican musical, and I'm excited already.
