If You Want It: Tyler Perry's 'Boo 2! A Madea Halloween' Official Trailer

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween

"People got dead up there for real!" Oh boy, here we go again… Lionsgate has revealed the trailer for the newest Tyler Perry joint, another Madea comedy (sequel) titled Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. This is, obviously enough, a sequel to the goofy Halloween comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween release just last year. Tyler Perry not only returns to write and direct, but also star again as Madea (and Joe and Brian). The cast includes Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Chandra Currelley, Yousef Erakat, Diamond White, Lexy Panterra, and Andre Hall. The plot involves Madea, Bam & Hattie going to a haunted campground where they find monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman. As much as I have absolutely no interest in these movies, I have to give them props on the amusing poster design. Other than that, if you want to watch then go ahead.

Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Literally, Right Before Aaron' with Justin Long

Literally, Right Before Aaron Trailer

"He's actually a really cool guy." Screen Media Films has unveiled the first official trailer for an enjoyable indie comedy titled Literally, Right Before Aaron, telling the story of a heartbroken man invited to the wedding of his most recent ex-girlfriend. Justin Long stars in this fairly typical story about a guy dealing with a tough breakup and accepting the reality of letting go, while embracing the comedy in romance. The ensemble cast includes Cobie Smulders as his ex, as well as Ryan Hansen, John Cho, Kristen Schaal, Dana Delany, Peter Gallagher, Lea Thompson, and Luis Guzmán. This premiered at the Tribeca and Nantucket Film Festivals and seems like a painfully funny, awkwardly charming little comedy. Take a look.

Josh Hartnett in Official Trailer for '6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain'

6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain Trailer

"What do you want from me?!" Momentum Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for a survival movie called 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain, telling the faith-based story of a former hockey player and adrenaline junkie who gets stranded in the mountains. He must "battle his own personal demons" in order to survive. Josh Hartnett stars as as Eric LeMarque, who ends up lost while snowboarding in the High Sierras when a massive winter storm hits. Also starring Mira Sorvino, Sarah Dumont, Kale Culley, and Jason Cottle. Despite this being billed as "one of the most amazing tales of survival" it looks pretty much like every other tale of snowy survival. Right down to the wolves. And that song makes my eyes roll big time.

"This will go down in history as the single most important movie promo of all-time." 20th Century Fox is going eclipse-crazy with a new promo for Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, the action-packed sequel about the British spy organization. The wild idea is that they, wink wink, came up with the concept for the eclipse and are doing it to "promote" the "Golden Circle" movie. They've even made a funny video to joke about this promo. Taron Egerton returns as the superspy known as Eggsy, along with Colin Firth as Harry Hart, plus Mark Strong as Merlin; and a full cast featuring Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Vinnie Jones, as well as Hanna Alström, and Sophie Cookson.

Official Trailer for Ai Weiwei's New Film 'Human Flow' About Humanity

Human Flow Trailer

"When There Is Nowhere to Go, Nowhere is Home." Amazon Studios and Participant Media have released an official trailer for Human Flow, a new film directed by iconic Chinese artist/filmmaker Ai Weiwei. This will be premiering at the Venice Film Festival first before hitting theaters in October. This eye-opening, breathtaking, heart-wrenching documentary looks at the humanitarian crisis of our time. "Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II." Human Flow is made up of remarkable footage showing this mass migration and how people move around this planet. This looks incredible, I'm very excited to see the footage and experience it as presented by Ai Weiwei. I'm sure it's going to be an emotional experience.

Review: 'Brigsby Bear' is a True Love Letter to Fandom & Filmmaking

Brigsby Bear Review

The beloved sketch comedy group Good Neighbor was originally formed in 2007 by Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Nick Rutherford, and Dave McCary. The comedians racked up millions of YouTube hits with their offbeat and uncomfortable sketch videos, including such notable standouts as "My Mom's a MILF", "Is My Roommate Gay?", "420 Disaster," and "Unbelievable Dinner," based on Steven Spielberg's Hook. In 2013, Mooney and Bennett joined Saturday Night Live as featured players along with McCary, who stayed behind the camera as a segment director. Now Mooney and McCary are transitioning to the big screen with the indie comedy Brigsby Bear, a feature-length narrative about friendship, family, and nostalgia that deftly blends humor and heart to create something that is both odd and oddly affectionate.

John Woo's Newest Action Movie 'Manhunt' Gets a 90s-Esque Trailer

Manhunt Trailer

He's back!! Media Asia has debuted a new international trailer for John Woo's latest action film Manhunt, being described as a return to his action roots in the vein of his 1989 classic The Killer. Let's hope that's all true, because we haven't really seen a great action movie from John Woo in a while. Manhunt is about an innocent prosecutor who sets out on a mission to clear his name after being framed for crimes he didn't commit. Zhang Hanyu stars as the prosecutor, and the cast includes Masaharu Fukuyama, Qi Wei, and Ha Ji Won. This is actually a remake of the 1976 Japanese film Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare. I'll be seeing this at the Venice Film Festival when it premieres there in a few weeks. The footage in this trailer looks very weird like it's straight from the 90s, but here's to hoping Woo is totally back and better than ever.

First Official Trailer for Los Angeles Neo-Noir 'Gemini' with Lola Kirke

Gemini Trailer

"I feel like there are so many crazy people who are mad at me right now." Neon has released a trailer for Aaron Katz's Gemini, which premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and also played at BAMcinemaFest this summer. The film received rave reviews and is already being referred to as one of the best of 2017. Gemini is about a heinous crime that tests the complex relationship between a tenacious personal assistant and her Hollywood starlet boss. She travels around Los Angeles attempting to unravel the mystery, confronting her own understanding of truth and celebrity. Starring Lola Kirke, Zoë Kravitz, Nelson Franklin, Greta Lee, James Ransone, and John Cho. Based on all the buzz and footage from this trailer, I'm already completely sold. One fest review calls it "a fantastic neo-noir set in the Thief-inspired Los Angeles of Drive."

New International Trailer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' Includes a Familiar Face

Thor: Ragnarok Trailer

"I sense a great change in your future." Disney has revealed a new international (Japanese) trailer for Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok, and while it features lots of footage we have seen before, there's a few new moments with some familiar faces from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (hint, hint). This trailer doesn't even try to hide it - it just starts out with Doctor Strange right away. There's also a few other teases in this, so fire it up to get a closer look. Chris Hemsworth is back as Thor, with a kick ass cast: Cate Blanchett as Hela, Jeff Goldblum as the Grandmaster, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Karl Urban as Skurge, plus all of the others from Asgard including Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Idris Elba as Heimdall, and Jaimie Alexander. I'm still so, so excited for this. I'm just ready to watch already! Bring on Taika Waititi's Ragnarok mayhem.

Trailer for Sci-Fi Spin-Off Sequel 'Beyond Skyline' Starring Frank Grillo

Beyond Skyline Trailer

"Do exactly as I say." An international trailer has debuted for the sci-fi spin-off sequel Beyond Skyline, which is indeed related to the odd sci-fi disaster Skyline from a few years back. Anyone else remember that one? Why the directors of the original film have moved on, they did produce this, though their company Hydraulx is no longer involved. Instead, Liam O'Donnell has directed Beyond Skyline telling the story of a detective who goes into one of the alien spaceships to rescue his son. Frank Grillo stars, along with a cast including Bojana Novakovic, Iko Uwais, Callan Mulvey, Valentine Payen, Betty Gabriel, Jack Chausse, and Kevin O'Donnell. This looks kind of cool, I really dig the alien designs, but I have a feeling it's going to be terrible. No matter how much they tried to improve this, it still seems like a huge disaster.

First Trailer for Action Film 'Vengeance: A Love Story' with Nicolas Cage

Vengeance: A Love Story Trailer

"Leave us alone!" FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for a new action film titled Vengeance: A Love Story, adapted from the Joyce Carol Oates novel titled Rape: A Love Story. The story is about a local police officer who goes for vengeance when a local gang rapes a woman. The criminals find a way to walk away free thanks to a hot shot lawyer, and so the detective takes matters into his own hands. Nicolas Cage stars as John Dromoor, with a cast including Anna Hutchison, Talitha Bateman, Deborah Kara Unger, Don Johnson, Joshua Mikel, Rocco Nugent, Joe Ochterbeck, Carter Burch, and Charlene Tilton. This looks like a generic vengeance movie, especially with Nicolas Cage, but who knows. It's also interesting they removed the word "rape" from any description of this film, but it's definitely a major part of the plot.
