First Teaser Trailer for Jason Reitman's 'Tully' Starring Charlize Theron

Tully Teaser Trailer

"Hey! Frozen pizza, awesome." Focus Features has unveiled a teaser trailer for the newest film by Jason Reitman, titled Tully. Reitman reunites with Charlize Theron, who starred in his film Young Adult, and also reunites with screenwriter Diablo Cody, who wrote the scripts for Retiman's films Juno and Young Adult. Theron plays a mother of three, including a young baby, who provided a night nanny by her brother. Mackenzie Davis plays the titular Tully, who seems to be a lovely, thoughtful nanny, but perhaps there's more to her. The cast includes Mark Duplass and Ron Livingston. As far as I can tell, there is no dark twist to this, it seems like a nice drama about (as it states) motherhood in 2018. Though this is just a teaser.

Official UK Trailer for Indie Drama 'Scott and Sid' About Two Friends

Scott and Sid Trailer

"It's a pattern! We're born into this system…" An official trailer has arrived for an eccentric, offbeat British drama about two schoolboys who become friends and chase bigger dreams, titled Scott and Sid. This is the first time we've heard anything about this film, which doesn't seem to have shown up at many film festivals but is opening in cinemas in March (at least in the UK). Directed by the real life "Scott and Sid", Scott Elliott and Sid Sadowskyj, the film stars Richard Mason as Scott and Tom Blyth as Sid. It seems to be a story about the power of friendship, and how these two misfits were able to inspire and push each other to achieve more than they were ever supposed to, growing up as underachievers. This actually looks fairly good, it's a solid trailer and seems to be a straightforward coming-of-age drama with strong performances. Take a look.

Teaser Trailer for WB's 'Teen Titans Go! To The Movies' Opening in July

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies Teaser

"Do you know what makes a real hero?" Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for the big screen, feature version of the "Teen Titans" animated superhero series, titled Teen Titans Go! To The Movies, hitting theaters this July. "Teen Titans Go! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza — a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers." The voice cast includes Will Arnett and Kristen Bell, plus Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, and Hynden Walch as Starfire, reprising their roles from the series. This looks very funny, as expected. The Wonder Woman gag in this is pretty good, along with all the meta-jokes. Enjoy.

Looking Back: Alex's Top 10 Favorite Films of 2017 - 'Call Me' Reigns

Alex's Top 10 Favorite Films of 2017

"If you only knew how little I really know about the things that matter…" It was a year of masterpieces, another outstanding year of films big and small, funny and serious, that I fell madly in love with. It's time to present my personal list of my Top 10 Favorite Films of 2017. 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. So I just have to go with what I feel in my gut. This year, my #1 film is one that could not be topped for the entire year - I first saw it at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and it remained my #1 for the next 11 months. As for the rest of my picks, I've included two documentaries because they both made me unabashedly happy.

Logan Lerman & Elle Fanning in 'The Vanishing of Sidney Hall' Trailer

The Vanishing of Sidney Hall Trailer

"Tell me if this sounds familiar…" A24 has unveiled an official trailer for a mysterious indie drama titled The Vanishing of Sidney Hall, formerly known as just Sidney Hall when it premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival. There wasn't much buzz for this and it's just finally getting a release one year later, for those who might be interested. Logan Lerman stars as the titular Sidney Hall, who found accidental success as a writer of a popular novel, along with unexpected love, at an early age, then disappears without a trace. Some of his friends and family go on a hunt to find him, and figure out what happened. Elle Fanning also co-stars, along with Kyle Chandler, Michelle Monaghan, Nathan Lane, and Margaret Qualley. I actually saw this film at Sundance but totally forgot about it, because there wasn't much to it. There's an intriguing truth to it with Lerman's character, who hates popularity, but the rest is a bit dry. Check this out.

Final Full-Length Trailer for 4th 'Hatchet' Horror Film 'Victor Crowley'

Victor Crowley Movie Trailer

"Death returns, and its name is…" Dark Sky Films has released the final, full official trailer for the horror sequel Victor Crowley, the 4th film in the Hatchet horror series. Creator Adam Green returns to write & direct this film, which has been described as "smartly written, outrageously funny, and incredibly gory." Horror fans may remember that this film was a big surprise last fall, as no one knew it was even being made and suddenly they had announced with a touring road show. Set a decade after the events of the first three films, the story follows the one-and-only survivor who has been trying to get people to believe his story for years. He ends up back at the place where it all started, and Crowley is resurrected. Starring Kane Hodder and Parry Shen, with Laura Ortiz, Dave Sheridan, and Brian Quinn. Only for die-hard horror fans.

Second Trailer for Teen-Angst Dramedy 'Flower' Starring Zoey Deutch

Flower Trailer

"So what's the plan?" The Orchard has debuted the second official trailer for an teen-angst dramedy titled Flower, from director Max Winkler (of the film Ceremony). This follows up the first red band teaser trailer. Flower stars the awesome Zoey Deutch as a young rebellious teen who decides to act out and band with her two friends to expose the kinky secrets of sexy high-school teacher Will, played by Adam Scott. Things get wacky and weird. The film's full cast includes Kathryn Hahn, Joey Morgan, Tim Heidecker, Dylan Gelula, Maya Eshet, plus Eric Edelstein. This looks hilarious, there's a few times I actually laughed out loud watching this trailer. Really looking forward to seeing this! Damn, where did it come from? Have fun.

Trailer for Comedy 'The Female Brain' Directed by Whitney Cummings

The Female Brain Trailer

"Knowing your brain makes life so much easier." IFC Films has debuted the first official trailer for an indie comedy film titled The Female Brain, which is the feature directorial debut of popular comedian/actress Whitney Cummings. Cummings also stars in the film as a "no-nonsense neuroscientist", researching the biochemistry of the female brain. The film attempts to explain how and why our brains work when it comes to attraction and relationships, in a quirky, comedic way. The full ensemble cast includes Cecily Strong, Blake Griffin, Sofia Vergara, Deon Cole, Lucy Punch, James Marsden, Toby Kebbell, as well as Beanie Feldstein (from Lady Bird and Neighbors 2). This trailer doesn't have much impressive footage in it, with barely an appearance by Toby Kebbell in one shot. I'm not too sure this will be any good. See below.

New HBO Trailer for Doc 'May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers'

May It Last: A Portrait of The Avett Brothers

"Do we turn, and explore?" HBO has unveiled a new trailer for the documentary May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers, which is a film about the band known as the Avett Brothers, from North Carolina. We already posted a trailer for this last year, as it played in theaters for one night, but HBO is releasing it streaming in January hence the new trailer. This is an Apatow Production in association with RadicalMedia and HBO Documentary Films; and co-directed by fans Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio. For those who haven't listened to them, The Avett Brothers combine bluegrass, country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, indie rock, honky tonk, and ragtime to produce a novel sound. This is an "intimate documentary" that follows them as they create their 2016 album "True Sadness." Any/all music fans might want to take a look.

Official Trailer for 10th 'Hellraiser' Horror Film 'Hellraiser: Judgment'

Hellraiser: Judgment Trailer

"Evil seeks evil." Lionsgate has launched an official trailer for the latest Hellraiser film titled Hellraiser: Judgment, which is actually the 10th film in the Hellraiser series (believe it or not?). I didn't even realize there with this many. The original horror cult classic Hellraiser was released in 1987, from writer/director Clive Barker. Hellraiser: Judgment is directed by Gary J. Tunnicliffe, who has been working for two decades as a horror make-up effects artist before jumping into the director's seat this time. It tells the story of three detectives as they struggle to solve a horrifying murder, but instead find themselves thrust into the depths of Pinhead’s hellacious landscape. Starring Paul T. Taylor as Pinhead, along with Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, John Gulager, Mike Jay Regan, plus Heather Langenkamp. See below.

Lyndsy Fonseca in First Trailer for Time Travel Indie Film 'Curvature'

Curvature Trailer

"Why do you think Wells was so secretive about his work?" Screen Media has unveiled a trailer for indie sci-fi thriller Curvature, which premiered at the Sitges Film Festival last year. This time travel film follows a young engineer named Helen Phillips, played by Lyndsy Fonseca (who you will recognize from Kick-Ass or "Agent Carter"), distraught by her husband's suicide. He had been developing a time travel prototype. She wakes up one morning and gets a phone call from herself, which sets things in motion as she tries to figure out what's going on. Co-starring Linda Hamilton, Glenn Morshower, Alex Lanipekun, Zach Avery, Noah Bean. I saw this at Sitges and unfortunately it's not good. It has all the right ingredients, including a cool-looking time travel machine, but just doesn't amount to much and is instantly forgettable. Check it out.

Official Trailer for Los Angeles-Set Druggie Indie 'A Thousand Junkies'

A Thousand Junkies Trailer

"Who do we know who can come through for us?" An official trailer has debuted for a funky little indie film titled A Thousand Junkies, set in Los Angeles following a drug junkie looking for his next fix. As much as that sounds like a film no one wants to see, the description is rather intriguing: it's a "'drug' movie with no drugs, and a 'road' movie that goes nowhere." From first-time director Tommy Swerdlow, the film stars TJ Bowen (who co-wrote the script) as TJ, one of the junkies going about his 9 to 5 life of searching for drugs. The cast includes Patricia Castelo Branco, Dinarte de Freitas, and Blake Heron. The Film Stage says the film "is not necessarily a morality tale, nor is it pure voyeurism. It's simply capturing a day in a life — or three, to be more specific." This reminds me a bit of Trainspotting, looks like a good time. Fire it up below.
