On a Road of Personal Discovery in First Trailer for 'In Search of Fellini'

In Search of Fellini Trailer

"This is your life - what do you want to do?" Ambi Media Group and Spotted Cow Entertainment debuted an official trailer for an indie coming-of-age film called In Search of Fellini, which is indeed about a young woman's search for Fellini. Ksenia Solo stars as a shy small-town Ohio girl who discovers Federico Fellini's "delightfully bizarre films" (see IMDb) and sets off on a journey across Italy to find him. Along the way, she discovers herself and romance and tasty Italian candy and much more. The cast includes Maria Bello, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Beth Riesgraf, Andrea Osvárt, and David O'Donnell. This looks quite adorable, and cute, very much a film-lovers adventure, though it does seem a bit cliche with its story. Enjoy.

Official Trailer for 'The Challenge' Doc About Amateur Falconry in Qatar

The Challenge Documentary

"Luxuriously alluring." Kino Lorber has debuted an official trailer for a stunning documentary called The Challenge, which has been playing at film festivals all over the world picking up all kinds of prizes. The film examines the world of wealthy Qatari sheikhs with a passion for amateur falconry, who collect and train their prized pet falcons, flying them in private jets around the world, and taking them for rides in their fancy cars. If, like me, your first thought is wait I've never heard of this before and it sounds totally amazing and I want to learn more about this, then this doc is for you. There's some really stunning footage in this, and it looks like it's more of a visual essay than just a simple doc, which makes me even more intrigued to see this.

Robert Redford & Jane Fonda in Teaser Trailer for 'Our Souls at Night'

Our Souls at Night Trailer

Hello again, you two. Netflix has released the first official trailer for Ritesh Batra's new film Our Souls at Night, a new romantic drama starring Robert Redford and Jane Fonda, who have appeared together four times in films, starting with Barefoot in the Park over fifty years ago. The story is about two people who are neighbors in a small town in Colorado, but had little contact. They finally connect and romance sparks, as they try to make the most of the rest of the time they have. In addition to Redford and Fonda, the film stars Bruce Dern, Matthias Schoenaerts, Judy Greer and Iain Armitage. This teaser trailer doesn't show much at all, but it is a nice teaser and is just enough for me to be interested. I'll be catching this at the Venice Film Festival where it will premiere soon, and I'm looking forward to some sweet, sweet romance.

First Trailer for Animated 'Animal Crackers' About Reviving a Circus

Animal Crackers Trailer

"They say a circus is a lot like a family, but every family needs that special something that holds it all together." Blue Dream Studios (not related to Blue Sky Studios) has released the first official trailer for an animated comedy called Animal Crackers, about a down-on-his-luck guy who tries to revive a circus. The catch - he finds a magical box of animal crackers that allows him to transform into any of the animals in his box. He thinks this might save the circus, until he discovers he has to go up against his long lost evil uncle - Horatio P. Huntington. The extensive voice cast in Animal Crackers includes John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Danny DeVito, Ian McKellen, Raven-Symoné, Sylvester Stallone, Patrick Warburton, Tara Strong, Lydia Rose Taylor, Wallace Shawn, Gilbert Gottfried, Harvey Fierstein, and Kevin Grevioux. This looks fun, even though it seems seriously derivative in many ways, but that's not surprising.

Rousing Second Trailer for 'Wonder' Starring Jacob Tremblay as Auggie

Wonder Movie Trailer

"I knew I'd never be an ordinary kid." Choose kindness! Lionsgate has debuted a second official trailer for the film Wonder, adapted from R.J. Palacio's book of the same name. Wonder stars acclaimed young actor Jacob Tremblay (seen in Room, Before I Wake, The Book of Henry), who plays Auggie, a kid with an awkward facial difference who decides to go to public school despite being made fun of by other students. He makes a few new friends who help him learn to be himself. The full cast includes Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson as Auggie's parents, and also featuring Daveed Diggs, Mandy Patinkin, Sonia Braga, Izabela Vidovic, Ali Liebert, and Bryce Gheisar. This looks so wonderful, I'm pretty sure it's going to be a huge hit this fall. I like that it is all about laughter and good friends - the most important things in life.

Big-Game Hunting is Questioned in Trailer for 'Trophy' Documentary

Trophy Doc Trailer

"We have to keep this fight going!" The Orchard has debuted an official trailer for a documentary called Trophy, examining the world of big game trophy hunters and how it connects to wildlife conservation. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in competition earlier this year, and has played at other fests all over the world. The description for this says it will make you question "what is right, what is wrong and what is necessary in order to save the great species of the world from extinction." This seems like it would make a great double feature with the other wildlife doc The Ivory Game (about elephant poaching) from last year. I will admit I'm curious about seeing this, and I'm a bit sad I missed it at Sundance. Take a look below.

Official Trailer for Darren Aronofsky's 'Mother!' with Jennifer Lawrence

Darren Aronofsky's Mother! Trailer

"What do they want?" "God help you…" Paramount has debuted the official full-length trailer for Darren Aronofsky's new film titled Mother!, or actually correctly mother!, without any capitalization. This looks super creepy and mysterious and dark, which is not what I was expecting at all, but damn does it still look thrilling as hell. Jennifer Lawrence and Javier Bardem star as a couple whose relationship is "tested" when uninvited guests arrive at their secluded home. The full cast includes Ed Harris, Michelle Pfeiffer, Domhnall Gleeson, Brian Gleeson, Stephen McHattie, Kristen Wiig, and Stefan Simchowitz. With a score by Jóhann Jóhannsson. This looks like it is reminiscent of Shutter Island and a few other psychological horror thrillers, all with Aronofsky's unique touches and incredibly powerful performances.

Danny Pudi Stars in Trailer for Coming-of-Age Film 'The Tiger Hunter'

The Tiger Hunter

"I only wish to live up to my father's example…" An official US trailer has debuted for an indie coming-of-age comedy titled The Tiger Hunter, starring young actor Danny Pudi best known from "Community". Pudy plays Sami Malik, a young Indian boy who comes to America in the 1970s in order to impress his crush back home, as well as his father, a legendary tiger hunter. But of course he ends up working a low-end job and meets some wacky friends who he hopes will convince them of his success, even if it's not entirely true. The entire cast includes Rizwan Manji, Jon Heder, Karen David, Kevin Pollak, Sam Page, Anand Desai-Barochia, and Parvesh Cheena. This looks oddly charming and amusing in a quaint way. Enjoy.

Second Trailer for 'Leatherface' Horror Prequel Cuts Out All the Blood

Leatherface Horror Trailer

"You know his legend, witness the creation." Lionsgate has revealed a second official trailer for the horror prequel Leatherface, telling the origin of the man who would become known as "Leatherface". This is a much more tame green band trailer without any blood, compared to the much more violent red band. This is the long-awaited official prequel to Tobe Hooper's original horror classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre from 1974. In this film, Jessica Madsen plays one of four inmates from a mental hospital - the other three played by Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, and James Bloor. They kidnap a nurse, Vanessa Grasse, and take her on a "road trip from hell." The full cast also includes Stephen Dorff, Lili Taylor, and Julian Kostov. I'm still not sure about this movie, especially with this bloodless trailer, but give it a look anyway.

Antonio Banderas & Olga Kurylenko in Trailer for 'Gun Shy' Comedy

Gun Shy Trailer

"Rock out with your glock out." Saban Films has debuted the first official trailer for an action comedy called Gun Shy, formerly known as Salty (which is the title that appears on the very early poster art seen below the trailer). The movie stars Antonio Banderas as an over-the-top rockstar named Turk Henry, with a wife played by Olga Kurylenko. She gets kidnapped while the two are vacationing in Chile, and Banderas recruits some wacky people to help him find and free her. Sounds like a fun straight-to-VHS concept for an action movie, why not. The full cast includes Ben Cura, Mark Valley, Aisling Loftus, David Mitchell, Jeremy Swift, and Jesse Johnson. This really looks ridiculous, but it may be a fun beer-and-pizza rental.

Second Trailer for 'Same Kind of Different as Me' with Greg Kinnear

Same Kind of Different as Me Trailer

"Amazing how far a little tender lovin' care can go." Paramount and PureFlix have debuted another new official trailer for the heartfelt drama Same Kind of Different as Me, from director Michael Carney. This was originally scheduled to open in February, but was delayed seven months and is now being released in October, if anyone still wants to see it. Greg Kinnear stars as a family man who befriends a homeless man, played by Djimon Hounsou, and changes his life through a bit of kindness and friendship. The film also stars Renée Zellweger in one of her other major roles (aside from Bridget Jones's Baby) after her hiatus, along with Jon Voight, Olivia Holt, Ty Parker and others. This doesn't look any better than it did when we posted the first trailer last year, but perhaps these a few good performances in this worth appreciating.

Kill Or Be Killed - First Trailer for Voyeur Horror Film 'Keep Watching'

Keep Watching Trailer

"They want us to fight back!" Voltage Pictures has released an official trailer for a horror film called Keep Watching, a creepy voyeur thriller about a family imprisoned by intruders. The concept of this one is a bit uncomfortable, but that's what makes it horror, right? A bunch of cameras are rigged up in a house where a family is tormented, while live viewers can watch as they're killed off. But they don't know if what they're watching is real or staged, they're just told to "keep watching". (Cue eye roll now.) The cast includes Bella Thorne, Natalie Martinez, Christopher Baker, Ioan Gruffudd, and Chandler Riggs. This looks a bit too bland and uninteresting, despite the freaky concept. And I'm guessing no studio wants to deal with the backlash of releasing a movie about watching people die, but it is finished and just waiting for a release.
