Another Trailer for Autobahn Action Film 'Collide' with Nicholas Hoult

Collide Movie Trailer

"We've all got our reasons to crazy, reckless things in life…" Open Road Films has debuted another new trailer for the action thriller Collide, starring superstar actors Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones. This film was supposed to be released last August (see the first trailer here), but after generating pretty much no buzz they delayed it until this February. I'm still not interested, and this still looks as generic and bland as it did before, even with a great cast. Besides Hoult and Jones, this also stars Anthony Hopkins (as a mob boss) and Ben Kingsley (looking wacko), plus Nadia Hilker and Clemens Schick. The story is about an American backpacker caught up in a drug smuggling ring while trying to pull off a heist, taking him "on the run from his employers across Munich's high-speed Autobahn." Of course it's all about the action. Enjoy.

Looking Back: Alex's Top 10 Favorite Films of 2016 - In 'La La' Love

Alex's Top 10 - La La Land

"Without love, what reason is there for anything?" What a year. Admittedly, it's always a challenge for me to put together a Top 10 list, just because there's never enough time to watch (and rewatch) everything. That said, I fell head-over-heels in love with a number of movies in 2016 and it was easy to put them on this list. I learned so much from my Favorite Films of 2016. Paterson taught me to love poetry (and write some of my own). La La Land reminded me that dancing is the key to life, and jazz is awesome. Captain Fantastic taught me to always seek the truth. Pete's Dragon reminded me that sometimes we must believe in magic. I'm invigorated by how much movies often affect me, and the more emotional I get, the more I love them.

Watch: New Trailer for Greg McLean's Thriller 'The Belko Experiment'

The Belko Experiment Trailer

"We are not going to entertain the option of killing people." BH Tilt + Orion have released a second trailer for the horror-thriller film The Belko Experiment, which premiered at TIFF last year. Here's the concept: a corporate high-rise building is locked down and the workers are forced to play a game of "kill or be killed". Directed by Greg McLean (of Wolf Creek), written by James Gunn (of Guardians of the Galaxy), starring John Gallagher Jr, Michael Rooker, Tony Goldwyn, Adria Arjona, John C. McGinley, Melonie Diaz, Owain Yeoman, Sean Gunn, Brent Sexton, and Josh Brener. This is much better than the first trailer, and I'm still looking forward to seeing it. Going to be dark and violent and totally wicked. Have fun.

First Trailer for Charlie McDowell's New Sundance Film 'The Discovery'

The Discovery Trailer

"There goes my heart…" Netflix has debuted a teaser trailer for Charlie McDowell's The Discovery, just a few days before this film premieres at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. This film is listed as one of my most anticipated of the festival, and that doesn't change after seeing this teaser trailer, I'm still very excited for it. Jason Segel and Rooney Mara star, along with Robert Redford, in this film about a world where the afterlife is scientifically proven. The two reconnect and look back over their life and choices while the rest of the world struggles with the choice to kill themselves to "get there" or remain alive. This is a fantastic trailer - I love the music, and it sets up some seriously powerful moments. Can't wait to see this.

Another New Trailer for Ricky Gervais' 'David Brent: Life On The Road'

David Brent: Life On The Road Trailer

"On the road is where I really come alive." Netflix has released an official US trailer for Ricky Gervais' new film David Brent: Life of the Road, which is finally being prepped for release in February on Netflix. The film follows Gervais' character from "The Office" series, David Brent, who has now turned to the life of being a rockstar in a band called "Foregone Conclusion". Hilarity ensues. The cast includes Tom Bennett, Jo Hartley, Mandeep Dhillon and Rebecca Gethings. We've previously featured a few different UK trailers for this, but if you are still curious, here's another one made for the upcoming US release. This is probably only for die-hard fans of Gervais or "The Office", but check it out below. Not many laughs from me.

First Trailer for Netflix's Film 'Girlfriend's Day' Starring Bob Odenkirk

Girlfriend's Day Trailer

"I hate optimistic people. They bum me out with their upbeat attitude." Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a dark comedy called Girlfriend's Day, co-written by and starring Bob Odenkirk as a greeting card writer. The wacky plot involves Odenkirk getting entangled in a web of murder and deceit as writers vie to create the perfect card for a new holiday: Girlfriend's Day. It's described as a "clever and quirky story about love, loss and the worst place to get a paper cut." The full cast includes Amber Tamblyn, Natasha Lyonne, Ed Begley Jr, Stacy Keach, Rich Sommer, June Diane Raphael, Andy Richter, Stephanie Courtney and Echo Kellum. This looks much darker and weirder than expected, but I'm not so sure about this one.

New Trailer for Woody Harrelson's 'Wilson', Premiering at Sundance

Wilson Trailer

"I'm just lucky I figured it out a long time ago: life is lonely, and miserable." Fox Searchlight has revealed a second official trailer for the indie comedy Wilson, starring Woody Harrelson as the character Wilson, from the director of The Skeleton Twins. This is premiering at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival next week. Harrelson plays a "lonely, neurotic and hilariously honest middle-aged man reunites with his estranged wife and meets his teenage daughter for the first time." The cast includes Laura Dern (who looks awesome), Judy Greer, Cheryl Hines, Shaun Brown, David Warshofsky and Isabella Amara. This looks fun, and oddly charming at the same time, and I'm looking forward to checking it out at Sundance soon. Enjoy.

First Trailer for Cheesy 'E.T. Meets Pixar' Kids Movie 'My Pet Dinosaur'

My Pet Dinosaur Trailer

Making friends is easy, keeping them is impossible… What in the heck is this? A trailer has debuted for an Australian kids adventure movie titled My Pet Dinosaur, which is literally being pitched as "E.T. meets Pixar". The story is about a boy who befriends a dinosaur, that is actually a creation of a military experiment gone wrong. But as they grow closer, he does his best to keep him safe and prevent it from being captured. Seems more like The Iron Giant than Pixar. Starring Jordan Dulieu, Annabel Wolfe, Christopher Gabardi, Tiriel Mora, Harrison Saunders, David Roberts, and Joanne Samuel. This is made by a VFX supervisor, so he knows how to make it all seem realistic, but that doesn't make up for the cheesiness.

Check Out This Mesmerizing Trailer for A24's Sci-Fi Short Film 'Toru'

Toru Short Film

In our near future. Over the weekend, A24 debut a mysterious teaser trailer for an untitled film - without any information or details about what it is or what it's for or anything. After some sneaky investigation, The Film Stage discovered that the trailer is actually for a short film playing at Sundance 2017 called Toru. The footage has a sci-fi edge to it and shows the life of a baby living in a futuristic Japan. Early speculation was that this might be Shane Carruth's new sci-fi film, but apparently not. It's actually a very unique short about sci-fi tech that allows a baby to experience a full life in a matter of days. Some are speculating that maybe A24 is developing a feature, or just releasing the short, either way they've definitely got our attention.

Sundance 2017: The 10 Most Anticipated Films We Can't Wait to See

2017 Sundance Film Festival

Back to Sundance we go for another year of discovery. What's on the line-up this year? Out of the 120+ films showing at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, I've chosen 10 that I'm looking forward to seeing the most. To keep things well balanced, I've chosen 5 feature films and 5 documentaries from the line-up. There are so many films playing at the fest, and so many I'll end up seeing (30+), that this is a quick list to get everyone acquainted with some of the work premiering in 2017 (and why I'm so excited for these). From docs about free speech and doping, to features about life after death. Nothing like watching movies in the mountains.

Catherine Walker stars as Sophia, with a cast including Mark Huberman, Susan Loughnane and Steve Oram. This played at Fantastic Fest and the London Film Festival, and looks like a very creepy thriller. Take a look.

Watch: French Sci-Fi Short 'The Edge' From Director Simon Saulnier

The Edge Short Film

A forest, a symbol, a dream of humanity. Fire up this fantastic French sci-fi short film titled The Edge, from director Simon Saulnier. After playing at film festivals throughout 2015 and 2016, the short has finally arrived online. The Edge is a contained sci-fi story following the journey of a young girl tracking down the thieves who stole from her something she cares about. It runs about 13 minutes, but is worth watching for the impressive attention to detail and the compelling, mysterious story of a renegade woman. The score by Alex Cortès (Eden Log, Martyrs, Arès) is also stellar. This might be one of the best shorts we'll see this year.
