First Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Rainbow Time' Directed by Linas Phillips

Rainbow Time Trailer

"I'm jealous of what you have." The Orchard has debuted a trailer for an odd indie comedy titled Rainbow Time, written, directed by and starring Linas Phillips. The film is about a mentally challenged man named Shonzi, played by Linas Phillips, who moves in with his brother Todd, played by Timm Sharp. He now lives with his girlfriend Lindsay, played by the always wonderful Melanie Lynskey, and things become awkward when Shonzi wants to get more involved in their relationship, threatening to reveal secrets about Todd's past. As weird as this sounds, the trailer actually promises a charming, quirky, enjoyably unique film.

Final Trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Outstanding Sci-Fi Movie 'Arrival'

Arrival Final Trailer

"We need to talk to them." Paramount has unveiled a final trailer for the outstanding sci-fi movie Arrival, directed by master filmmaker Denis Villeneuve, arriving in theaters this November. You've already heard the buzz on this, as it has played at a bunch of film festivals in the last few months, and it's one brilliant film about alien spacecraft that suddenly land on Earth. Amy Adams plays a linguistics expert who is recruited by the military to determine whether they come in peace or are a threat. The full cast includes Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tzi Ma, Mark O'Brien and many others. I wrote in my glowing review from Telluride that Arrival is "a major milestone in sci-fi." Thankfully they don't reveal too much in this final trailer, which could ruin this, so take a look and catch this in theaters soon. Go see it.

First Teaser Trailer for James Mangold's 'Logan' Starring Hugh Jackman

James Mangold's Logan Teaser Trailer

"Charles, the world is not the same as it was…" 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser trailer for James Mangold's new Wolverine movie, titled Logan, with Hugh Jackman playing the mutant superhero one last time. This is Jackman's 9th time playing Wolverine, commonly known as Logan though his original name is James Howlett, and this time they're sending him out on the "Old Man Logan" storyline. This is set in 2024 and follows aging Wolverine and Professor X, played again by Patrick Stewart, as they struggle with mental issues. Also starring Boyd Holbrook, Doris Morgado, Elizabeth Rodriguez, Stephen Merchant and Eriq La Salle. I love the look of Jackman as "Old Man Logan", all grizzled with the beard. This looks like it should be an exquisite grand finale for Wolvie, glad to see them going all in with this story.

Dominic Monaghan & Ksenia Solo in Abduction Thriller 'Pet' Trailer

Pet Movie Trailer

"I'm not doing this for me, I'm doing this for you. Samuel Goldwyn Films has released a trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Pet, about a sweet guy who works at animal shelter who all of a sudden kidnaps and locks up a woman he is interested in. Dominic Monaghan plays the seemingly nice guy who goes crazy and kidnaps her, and Ksenia Solo plays the beautiful woman he has his eyes on. The cast also includes Jennette McCurdy and Nathan Parsons. The twist in this seems to be that she might be even crazier than he is, or something like that (even the synopsis hints at it), but it's hard to tell where this is going with the trailer - there's some really funky moments in this. I'm curious about this, especially because of the cast.

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.

Hard to even describe - just see the footage.

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.
