Christian Bale in New Full-Length Trailer for Wild West Film 'Hostiles'

Hostiles Movie Trailer

"You have no idea what war does to men." Entertainment Studios has unveiled a new full-length trailer for Scott Cooper's wild west thriller Hostiles, which will hit theaters in December at the end of the year. Set in New Mexico in 1892, the film follows a legendary Army captain who reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne war chief and his family through dangerous territory. Christian Bale stars as Captain Joseph J. Blocker, and Wes Studi stars as Yellow Hawk. It's described as a "heroic odyssey of survival" that "becomes a story not about the miles traveled nor the battles fought, but the journey towards respect, reconciliation, and forgiveness." The cast includes Rosamund Pike, Ben Foster, Peter Mullan, Jesse Plemons, Stephen Lang, Q'orianka Kilcher, Timothée Chalamet, and Rory Cochrane. This premiered to great reviews in Telluride, and looks like a solid, dusty action thriller. This trailer actually makes me want to see this film.

Review: Branagh's 'Murder on the Orient Express' is Old-Fashioned and Stiflingly Stodgy

Murder on the Orient Express Review

First published in 1934, Agatha Christie's novel, Murder on the Orient Express, is considered one of the most suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever written. The book, which concerns the murder of a wealthy businessman aboard a luxury train, features one of Christie's most famous & long-lived characters, detective Hercule Poirot. The Belgian sleuth with a magnificent mustache has appeared in more than 30 novels and 50 short stories and has been portrayed on radio, in film, and on TV by various actors, including Albert Finney, Sir Peter Ustinov, Tony Randall, Alfred Molina, Orson Welles, and David Suchet. Now, 83 years after its debut, Murder on the Orient Express receives another lavish, star-studded film adaptation, this time by actor-turned-director Kenneth Branagh (Henry V, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein), who also stars.

Hilarious Teaser Trailer for WB's Murder Mystery Comedy 'Game Night'

Game Night Teaser Trailer

"Tonight - we're taking 'game night' up a notch." Get your 12-sided dice ready. Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for a comedy titled Game Night, opening in theaters in March of next year. This comedy puts a spin on the popular "game night" concept and turns it into a crazy horror thriller. When a group of friends who meet regularly for game nights discover that the murder mystery game they're playing this time is actually for real, everyone freaks out but figures out the only way to win is to keep playing. Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams star along with Billy Magnussen, Sharon Horgan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston, with Michael C. Hall and Kyle Chandler. This looks absurd and totally fun, which might be what we all need right now. The plane at the end - what?!

Wolf Warrior II Trailer

"The rebels have hired the most expensive mercenaries out of Europe." Well Go USA has released the new trailer for the release of the epic action movie Wolf Warrior II from China. If you haven't seen the first Wolf Warrior, don't worry, this will be just as fun to watch no matter what. Wolf Warrior II is already the most successful film ever released in China, making over $800 million in that country alone. Wolf Warrior II (or Wolf Warrior 2) brings back Jing Wu, who stars and directs, as the "Wolf Warrior", China's deadliest Special Forces operative who must return to fight off mercenaries terrorizing innocent civilians. The cast includes Celina Jade, Gang Wu, Hans Zhang, Qian Yu, Nan Yu, Shanshan Chunyu, and Haifeng Ding. This looks like one of those action movies they don't make anymore, and I mean that in a good way.

New UK Trailer for That Russian Alien Arrival Action Movie 'Attraction'

Attraction Movie

"It depends on what they do next." Another new trailer has launched for the epic Russian alien arrival sci-fi action movie titled Attraction. We posted three different trailers for this movie all through last year, since it opened in Russia in January of this year. It's just now getting a UK release next January, which is why they've launched their own UK trailer. This is my kind of sci-fi - the VFX are top notch, the concept seems exciting and entertaining, the aliens (and their ship) look cool, I'm really looking forward to this (still). The film stars Oleg Menshikov, Alexander Petrov, Rinal Mukhametov, and Irina Starshenbaum. "The drama unfolds in the ruins of a working-class suburb overwhelmed by the disaster, as the military struggles to control fear, anger, and the eventual clash between Earth and visitors from another galaxy." Take a look.

New US Trailer for British Action Movie 'Stratton' with Dominic Cooper

Stratton Trailer

"So what's the deal with Stratton? What's he like?" Momentum Pictures has debuted an official US trailer for the British action movie titled Stratton, starring Dominic Cooper as a British Special Boat Service commando named Stratton who tracks down an international terrorist cell. From the director of Con Air and The Mechanic, this movie is also known as Stratton: First Into Action and opened in the UK back in September. The name "First Into Action" comes directly from the book that this is based on, a "Dramatic Personal Account of Life in the SBS." The film's full cast includes Connie Nielsen, Tom Felton, Tyler Hoechlin, Gemma Chan, Thomas Kretschmann, Derek Jacobi, and Austin Stowell. It seems like Momentum is dumping this in January, and it doesn't look like it's really that good, mostly heavy on action.

Watch: Gabriel Kalim Mucci's Excellent Sci-Fi Short 'Lunatique' in Full

Lunatique Short Film

Are you ready for more exciting post-apocalyptic sci-fi? An excellent Brazilian short film titled Lunatique has arrived online in full after playing at numerous film festivals, including the Sitges Film Festival most recently. The short is directed by cinematographer-turned-filmmaker Gabriel Kalim Mucci, and it's set in a gritty, desolate, ash-covered world. The story is about one lonely woman (Lila Guimaraes) struggling to survive in this world, but she looks quite badass, kind of a bit like Ripley from Aliens. This short has some excellent production design and solid VFX work, which makes it even more thrilling to see. Worth a watch.

New US Teaser Trailer for Aardman's Stop-Motion Movie 'Early Man'

Early Man Teaser Trailer

"The age of stone is over!" Summit Entertainment, StudioCanal, Aardman Animations and The British Film Institute present the first US teaser trailer for Aardman's new stop-motion animated movie Early Man, telling the story of how an early cave man and his friend, a wild boar named Hognob, unites his tribe against the mighty Bronze Age in a battle to beat them at their own game. This "teaser" is very similar to the full international trailer for Early Man, which will open in the UK before it arrives in US theaters. The primary voice cast features Tom Hiddleston, Eddie Redmayne and Maisie Williams. I'm always happy to see footage from a new Aardman movie, and this one looks as goofy yet still wildly amusing as they come. Enjoy.

Trailer for Hulu's 'Obey Giant: The Art & Dissent of Shepard Fairey' Doc

Obey Giant: The Art & Dissent of Shepard Fairey

"The idea that someone didn't like it, didn't really phase me." Hulu has premiered the trailer for the new feature-length documentary titled Obey Giant: The Art & Dissent of Shepard Fairey, which will be available on Hulu starting this weekend. Made by Oscar-winning documentarian James Moll, the film profiles the life and work of artist Shepard Fairey, following his roots in punk rock and skateboarding to his creation of the iconic Obama HOPE poster and the controversy that surrounds it. We're big fans of street art and the artists behind controversial street art, including Banksy (including his two docs Exit Through the Gift Shop and Banksy Does New York) and many others. Fairey is also a prominent, well-respected artist and this seems like a fascinating, exciting look at his life and all of his work. I really want to watch this doc.

The cast includes Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, Zach Woods.
