Yet Another International Trailer for 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter'

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Trailer

More creatures, more action, more stunts, more zombies, more guns, more Alice. Another new international trailer (labeled as #2) has arrived online for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the final movie in the Resident Evil cinematic series, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, once again starring Milla Jovovich. The full cast includes Ruby Rose, Ali Larter, Iain Glen, Shawn Roberts, William Levy, Eoin Macken, Rola and Lee Joon-Gi. The team of survivors head to Raccoon City for one final showdown to put an end to all the madness. This trailer is similar to the other second US trailer, but with even more footage of the various monsters and zombies they have to fight their way through. Admittedly, this looks better than expected, but it also doesn't look that good - probably perfect for a January release. Take a look.

The cast includes Lawrence Michael Levine, Alexander Koch, Jane Adams, Khan Baykal and Colleen Camp. Mackenzie Davis won the Best Actress award for this at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. It looks like a strong drama with a crazy side that appears as it plays out. Another film where Mackenzie Davis proves just how talented she is.

Watch: Sci-Fi Short 'Judy' - A Twisted Cautionary Tale Of Our Future

Judy Short Film

"I am here as your servant. I can perform any simple task." With the new "Westworld" show on everyone's minds, it's a perfect time to feature this new short film titled Judy. This first premiered at Fantastic Fest this year, and I owe Tim League thanks for the tip on its online debut. Judy is set in the near future and is about a guy who randomly receives an android assistant at his door one day. It starts out amusing, gets a bit raunchy, then ends on a very twisted note. I won't spoil it - you just need to be aware this may not play out the way you want. It's also a cautionary tale about how emotionless we can/will get with more technology.

Full Trailer for 'I Am Bolt' Documentary About the Legacy of Usain Bolt

I Am Bolt Documentary Trailer

"Every year I worry: 'Am I still fast?'" Universal has released an inspiring official trailer for the sports documentary titled I Am Bolt, profiling the life and legacy of Olympic running champion Usain Bolt. Bolt just won three more medals in Rio this summer, putting his total at nine Gold medals since his first Olympic games in 2008. This documentary includes intimate footage of Bolt's daily life and was filmed on location in Beijing, Rio, London, Germany and Jamaica. This actually looks like a full-on documentary, and not some made-for-TV special, with lots of footage of his personal life and his training. I really want to check this out.

Ford vs Ferrari in Official Trailer for 'The 24 Hour War' Documentary

The 24 Hour War Trailer

"It was the greatest rivalry in the history of racing…" That sounds gnarly. Chassy Media has debuted a trailer for the racing documentary titled The 24 Hour War, about the rivalry between Henry Ford II and Enzo Ferrari. Specifically, this focuses on the battle between the two automakers and their race cars that took place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in the 1960s. The story goes that, after the rise of Ferrari in the 60s, Henry Ford tried to just buy Ferrari outright since they didn't have much to compete with. Enzo Ferrari eventually said no, and Henry Ford was so upset he responded by building his own cars that could challenge the red Ferraris on the racetrack. This seems like a fun history lesson about the power of rivalries.

Watch: Steven Seagal in Official Trailer for Action Film 'Contract to Kill'

Contract to Kill Trailer

"I want to pick my own team, I want my own gear, and I need a jet." Lionsgate has debuted a trailer for a new action movie starring Steven Seagal, and if you've seen any of his other recent work, you know what to expect with this (which means - not much). Contract to Kill stars Seagal as a CIA enforcer investigating Arab terrorists captured in Mexico. His team includes actors Russell Wong and Jemma Dallender, and they're chasing after Ghassan Bouz as Abdul Raouf. This looks like a very low-rent Mission Impossible-meets-The Expendables, with all the typical cliches you'd expect. Including the "Islamic terrorists are our worst enemy" trope. This looks pretty awful, I'm surprised it's being released in theaters at all. Have a look.

Second US Trailer for 'Assassin's Creed' Starring Michael Fassbender

Assassin's Creed Trailer

"Your Destiny Is In Your Blood." 20th Century Fox has released a second official trailer for the adaptation of the video game series Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, giving us yet another look at this action movie. Fassbender plays Callum Lynch, who is sent back in time as his ancestor Aguilar. The cast includes Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Callum Turner; plus Ariane Labed. This trailer highlights more of the impressive action in this, but also spends time introducing us to the futuristic framing of the movie - Lynch being involved in this program. Perhaps playing off of the hype for Westworld a bit, maybe? Either way, this looks damn good - I'm excited to see it.

New Trailer for 4K Restoration of Itami's Ramen Western 'Tampopo'

Tampopo Trailer

"Whatcha eating?" Janus Films is re-releasing a Japanese film from 1985 titled Tampopo, from director Jûzô Itami, highly acclaimed by critics and foodies as one of the best films about a love for food. Described as a "ramen western", it's about a truck driver who stops at a small family-run noodle shop and decides to help its fledgling business. Tampopo is played by Japanese actress Nobuko Miyamoto. The film also has a few vignettes about the relationship of love and food. I only recently fell in love with authentic Japanese ramen after moving to New York and traveling to Japan a few years ago, and now I desperately want to see this. The 4K re-release will play in a few select cinemas (listings here) and I'll definitely be eating ramen after seeing it. For a full guide on ramen in Japan made in partnership with the re-release, click here. Enjoy!

Watch: Swedish Suspense Thriller Short Film 'The Best of Intentions'

The Best of Intentions Short Film

"I'd love to talk a little, we haven't done that very much." Another intriguing and well-made short film to feature this month. The Best of Intentions, also known as Han som ville henne så väl in Swedish, is a Swedish suspense thriller short film directed by actor Emil Jonsson - who also stars in this film. Famous Swedish actor Per Ragnar, seen in Light the Right One In, co-stars as a father of a disabled woman who comes to confront one of the workers at the care home where she lives. It's described as a thriller "in the vein of old Twilight Zone episodes" and definitely has that feel. The two lead performances are outstanding, and the tension building is impressive. It's a thought-provoking thriller cleverly addressing moral dilemmas.

Must Watch: Official Trailer for Herzog's Volcano Doc 'Into the Inferno'

Into the Inferno Trailer

"It is hard to take your eyes off the fire that burns deep under our feet." Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for Werner Herzog's other new documentary this year, titled Into the Inferno, which premiered at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals. Into the Inferno is Herzog's investigation into volcanoes, along with volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer. They travel the world and explore various cultures and concepts related to volcanoes. It's one of Herzog's best, and is definitely worth seeing, I totally loved it. Not only does he have some jaw-dropping footage, but it's fascinating to follow his tangents and side stories. I wrote in my review that it "examines the act of creation, with vivid imagery and utterly engrossing discussions." Watch below.
