New US Trailer for Sci-Fi Epic 'Osiris Child' Directed by Shane Abbess

Osiris Child Trailer

"This is going to be fun." RLJ Entertainment has unleashed another new full-length trailer for an under-the-radar sci-fi epic titled The Osiris Child, or rather, The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One in full. You may remember hearing about this, as we posted an international trailer earlier in the year. It's not getting a US release in the fall. Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonization, the story is about a drifter, played by Kellan Lutz, who gets mixed up with a lieutenant named Kane who works for a military contractor. They form an alliance and head out to rescue Kane's daughter amid an impending global crisis. Also stars Daniel MacPherson, Isabel Lucas, Rachel Griffiths, and Teagan Croft. This seems crazy ambitious with impressive VFX for an indie production, I just hope it isn't a complete disaster. Take a look.

First Trailer for Indie Sci-Fi Film 'Rememory' Starring Peter Dinklage

Rememory Trailer

"The machine is incredible!" "Pure, unfiltered truth." Ready to remember all of your memories? Lionsgate has debuted the official trailer for an indie sci-fi film titled Rememory, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This is one of a few subtle indie sci-fi films that played at the festival, along with Marjorie Prime and The Discovery. The gimmick in this is a device that can extract, record and play a person's memories. The inventor is found dead, and his wife retreats into her home until a mysterious man shows up and begins investigating what exactly happened. Peter Dinklage stars, with Julia Ormond, Martin Donovan, Evelyne Brochu, Henry Ian Cusick, and the late Anton Yelchin. The film received pretty bad reviews out of Sundance, and while I am somewhat intrigued, this trailer doesn't really grab me.

Check Out This Infographic About the Evolution of Movie Poster Design

Movie Poster Designs

Time for a quick look back at movie posters over the last 60 years. We're all used to seeing Photoshopped movie posters these days, with massive floating heads, explosions and lighting effects, and plenty of other cheesy design tricks. However, movie posters have a glorious history, originating as hand-painted pieces of art that were just as iconic and unforgettable as the movie itself. This new infographic takes a look back at "The Evolution of Movie Posters", featuring 12 different designs ranging from the 1950s to the 00s. It highlights some of the best movie posters in Hollywood history, and discusses how the design and style of posters has changed over time. The Jaws poster is one of the best ever made, and the designs for E.T. and Star Wars are also perfect. Check out the infographic below to dive even deeper into the history of posters.

Trailer for Prison Break Drama 'Last Rampage' Featuring Robert Patrick

Last Rampage Trailer

"You can have anything you want in this world, as long as you know how to steal it." Epic Releasing has debuted a trailer for an action thriller titled Last Rampage, about the true story of a notorious prison break in Arizona in 1978. The film stars Robert Patrick as Gary Tison, a convicted murderer who escaped from prison with his cellmate, played by Chris Browning. While the sheriff, played by Bruce Davison, was hunting him down the two went on a murderous rampage. The film features a "chilling tour-de-force turn by Robert Patrick" in a story "about the dark side of family loyalty." The full cast includes Heather Graham, Molly C. Quinn, Jason James Richter, William Shockley, and the late John Heard. This looks very gritty and violent, perhaps it's an uncomfortable film to watch, but maybe there's something to it.

Beautiful Official Trailer for Sean Baker's Excellent 'The Florida Project'

The Florida Project Trailer

"Thank you very much!" "You're not welcome!" A24 has debuted the first official trailer for the outstanding indie film The Florida Project, the latest feature from Tangerine director Sean Baker. This premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year to rave reviews - read mine here. The film tells the story of Halley, played by Bria Vinaite, and her daughter Moonee, played by Brooklynn Prince. They live at The Magic Castle, a motel in Orlando just in the backyard of Disneyland. Moonee and her friends run around causing all kinds of trouble and it's such a delight to watch them. Willem Dafoe also stars in one of his best performances of his career, and I really mean that. This film is really something special, and you can see why with this trailer - which captures the magic and charm of this beautiful film just perfectly. One of the year's best indie gems.

Studio Ghibli is Back from the Dead! Miyazaki is Developing New Film

Studio Ghibli

Can you believe it?! I don't know if I do?! Reports are going around that Studio Ghibli has re-opened its doors, started hiring a new team of animators, and will soon start working on a brand new project. It was massive, heartbreaking news a fear years ago when legendary animator Hayao Miyazaki announced his retirement (after finishing The Wind Rises in 2013) and then subsequently the studio he helped start, Studio Ghibli, decided to stop making new films and instead focus on monetizing their old filmography. In the last few years, Miyazaki kept himself busy by making an animated short film for the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo. But now the studio is back from the dead and Miyazaki has a new idea for a film, which is what this is about.

First Trailer for Indie Comedy 'The Wilde Wedding' with Patrick Stewart

The Wilde Wedding Trailer

"You are so thoughtful - as if you'd have any idea what a 'keeper' was." Vertical Entertainment has debuted the first official trailer for an indie comedy titled The Wilde Wedding, about a wedding that gets a bit crazy (if the title wasn't already an indication of that). The two people getting hitched are played by Glenn Close and Patrick Stewart, a retired film star marrying a renowned English writer. The rest of the "wild" ensemble cast of great actors includes John Malkovich, Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Noah Emmerich, and Grace Van Patten. I'm not sure where this came from, as I've never heard of the film before, but it looks entertaining in an awkward dysfunctional comedy way. There's tons of sexual tension being built up and released in this trailer, so make sure you wear a condom. Have fun.

First Trailer for Armando Iannucci's Political Satire 'The Death of Stalin'

The Death of Stalin Trailer

"I have no idea what is going on!" Entertainment One in the UK has debuted the first official trailer for Armando Iannucci's new film, The Death of Stalin, a darkly comic look at the internal political landscape of 1950’s Soviet Russia. Based on Fabien Nury's graphic novel, film is about Russian dictator Joseph Stalin's last days and the disorganized chaos of the regime after his death in 1953 and 30 years of iron-fisted rule. Adrian McLoughlin plays Joseph Stalin, with an ensemble cast of characters including Rupert Friend, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, and Jonathan Aris. This looks like another brilliant, hilarious political satire from Armando Iannucci that might be perfect entertainment for the times. Just fire up the trailer and enjoy.

Polina Doc Trailer

"I don't want to see a pretty dancer, I want to see Polina dancing." Oscilloscope Labs has debuted a trailer for a dance film titled Polina, telling the story of a classically trained ballet dancer who decides to switch to contemporary dance. This decisions "throws everything into question on a profound level", taking her on a journey of discovery and understanding. This is a full-on dance film through and through, made by two filmmakers with an extensive background in dance. Anastasia Shevtsova, a professional dancer who has performed with Saint Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre, stars as Polina. The cast includes Niels Schneider, Jeremie Belingard, and Juliette Binoche, who has danced with London-based choreographer Akram Khan. This looks very kinetic and unique, taking dance and the commitment involved to a whole other level.

First Eerie Trailer for Brazilian Horror 'Good Manners' Playing at Sitges

Good Manners Trailer

"Is he normal?" A trailer has arrived online for a Brazilian fantasy horror film titled Good Manners, which just premiered at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland and is also playing at the Sitges Film Festival coming up. The story is about a lonely nurse hired by a wealthy, mysterious woman named Ana to be the the nanny for her unborn child. But she soon realizes things are a bit strange when she discovers Ana sleepwalks around the house at night looking for prey. Isabél Zuaa stars, with a cast including Marjorie Estiano, Miguel Lobo, Cida Moreira, Andréa Marquee, and Felipe Kenji. This looks very peculiar and eerie, but it's that final shot with the freaky dog (boy?) that really sells this. I dig the hand drawn poster art, too.
