Jackie Chan in First Trailer for Stanley Tong's 'Kung Fu Yoga' Comedy

Kung Fu Yoga Movie Trailer

Two new Jackie Chan movies in one month! Yes indeed (Railroad Tigers is the other). Well Go has debuted an official trailer for the action comedy Kung Fu Yoga, starring Jackie Chan, directed by Stanley Tong. When I was younger, one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies was Rumble in the Bronx, an R-rated action comedy set in Brooklyn and it was awesome. Kung Fu Yoga reunites Chan with Supercop and Rumble in the Bronx director Stanley Tong for the first time in years. And as much as I would hope that was a good thing, this looks terrible. The cast includes Amyra Dastur, Aarif Rahman, Sonu Sood, Disha Patani, Lay Zhang, Eric Tsang. It's an India-China co-production and looks like a CGI-fest. But, the trailer is still fun.

Official Trailer for Indie Drama 'Dark Night' from Director Tim Sutton

Dark Night Trailer

Cinelicious Pics has debuted an official trailer for a super low budget indie drama titled Dark Night, from New York-based director Tim Sutton. The film premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival in the low budget Next category, and is opening in limited theaters this February. It follows a troubled kid planning a mass shooting, loosely based around The Dark Knight Rises shooting a few years ago, even though it's not the same story (turned into a film). Starring Robert Jumper, Anna Rose Hopkins, Karina Macias. I saw this film at Sundance last year and it's definitely not for me: oh so boring, not much of a plot, really not impressive in any way. Of course, that's just my opinion, other critics found more to appreciate. Have a look.

Cars 3 Trailer 3

It’s not over until Lightning strikes. Disney-Pixar have revealed a new 90-second sneak preview trailer for Cars 3, the latest sequel from Pixar arriving in theaters this summer. We've already seen one attention-grabbing trailer and an intro to the villains, but this trailer finally show part of the story. Lightning has to figure out how to make a big comeback after a disastrous crash, along with new high tech race cars making him obsolete. Owen Wilson returns as McQueen, with a voice cast including Armie Hammer, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Katherine Helmond, and Paul Dooley. I have to say it - this looks damn good, I'm seriously looking forward to this. Might be better than we're all expecting. "I'm coming for you, Storm."

My Life as a Zucchini Trailer

"She has eyes that go right through me." GKids has debuted an official US trailer for the fantastic Swiss stop-motion animated film My Life as a Zucchini, originally titled Ma vie de Courgette. This has played at film festivals all over the world and is showing at Sundance 2017 coming up soon. It also was nominated for Best Animated Film at the Golden Globes. The film is about a young boy with blue hair who becomes an orphan, and is sent to an orphanage where the other kids pick on him. But he quickly learns how to make new friends and teaches all of them how to enjoy life, no matter what. I watched this movie recently and totally loved it, it's wonderful and a must see for anyone who needs a bit of happiness in their life right now.

Second Trailer for Self-Aware 'Baywatch' Movie with Efron & Johnson

Baywatch Movie Trailer

"I thought we were lifeguards…? Everything that you guys are talking about sounds like a really entertaining, but far-fetched TV show." Paramount has debuted a new UK trailer for the Baywatch movie, directed by Seth Gordon, starring Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson as lifeguards. This trailer features at least one big F-bomb, but it's a UK trailer so no one really minds, which is totally fine with me. The full cast includes Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra, Pamela Anderson, Ilfenesh Hadera, Charlotte McKinney, Kelly Rohrbach, David Hasselhoff, and Hannibal Buress. I'm not sure I should admit this, but I actually laughed. I appreciate that the movie is self-aware, and making jokes about the TV show it's based on, and referencing how absurd everything is that they're doing. I might actually have to see this.

Golden Globes Winners

The winners of the HFPA's 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards, the precursor to the Academy Awards, have been announced tonight at a ceremony held at The Beverly Hilton hotel, hosted by late night comedian Jimmy Fallon. Hopefully this will be a lively show, as the HFPA can be quite boring. Our list below will be updated with all film-related winners as they're revealed during the live broadcast. The nominees featured a lots of great films from 2016, including Moonlight, La La Land, Hacksaw Ridge and Deadpool, of course, and I'm interested to find out which films/actors the HFPA fell for this time. Let's see who the winners are.

Watch: Video Essay on Scorsese Asks 'Is God Watching in All His Films?'

Scorsese's God Watching in All His Films

Perfectly timed with release of latest religious epic directed by Martin Scorsese, titled Silence, which is slowly expanding to more theaters this month, is a video essay on religious themes in Scorsese's films. Titled "God's Point of View", the video proposes the simple question: "Is God watching in all Marty's films?" There is no narration, instead the video uses footage from almost every single Scorsese film to present the possibility that Scorsese always includes scenes in his film from the point-of-view of God. But how? And why? His focus is on the choice to shoot some scenes looking straight down at characters in times of their greatest struggle, accompanied by the music of Max Richter. A must watch for fans of Scorsese and cinema.

Full Red Band Trailer for Corman's Racing Reboot 'Death Race 2050'

Death Race 2050 Trailer

"Ready for one last dance?" Universal has launched a new trailer for the racing reboot Death Race 2050, updating Roger Corman's 1975 camp classic Death Race 2000. We featured a short teaser trailer for this back in October, but now we have a full-length trailer and it's red band because they don't hold back on the violence and gore and nudity, which are always important aspects of Roger Corman's movies. Death Race 2050 brings back the character of Frankenstein, played this time by Manu Bennett, who takes on drivers in the deadly, violent cross-country road race. This also stars Malcolm McDowell, Burt Grinstead, and Marci Miller. This looks fun, but it doesn't look like that different from the original - just another reboot.

Final US Trailer for Action Comedy 'Railroad Tigers' with Jackie Chan

Railroad Tigers Trailer

"I started this mission. I will finish this mission." Well Go USA has revealed a new official US trailer for the action comedy from China titled Railroad Tigers, about a "ragtag" group of freedom fighters who ambush a military train. Jackie Chan stars, playing a railroad worker who leads a team of skilled fighters trying to take out the Japanese in order to get food for the poor. Also starring Huang Zitao, Wang Kai, Darren Wang, Alan Ng and Sang Ping. The first teaser trailer for this was goofy, and this trailer isn't that much better, but at least the VFX aren't as bad. I really, really wished this looked better than it does, because it would be nice to have another fun Jackie Chan movie, but I'm not sure this is one. In theaters starting today.

First Trailer for 'Tommy's Honour' About the Scottish Founders Golf

Tommy's Honour Trailer

The pride of a father. The love of a wife. The soul of a rebel. The heart of a champion. Roadside Attractions has debuted a trailer for a film titled Tommy's Honour, about the founders of the modern sport of golf. The film focuses on Tommy Morris, played by Jack Lowden, and his father Tom Morris, played by Peter Mullan, two golfing legends who helped make the sport into what it is today. Set in the 1800s, these two Toms helped redefine the sport at a time when Scottish golfers were considered low-class players. The cast includes Sam Neill, Ophelia Lovibond, Peter Ferdinando, Max Deacon and Paul Reid. This looks like a fine drama about a desire to rewrite the expectations of society, proving that anyone can be successful.

New UK Trailer for 'Trespass Against Us' Starring Gleeson & Fassbender

Trespass Against Us UK Trailer

"I'm just trying to look after my family…" Film4 out of the UK has debuted another official trailer for the generational crime drama Trespass Against Us, about a family of criminals who end up battling against each other. The indie film stars Michael Fassbender as a man trying desperately to escape the dangerous criminal world presided over by his savage father, played by Brendan Gleeson. The cast also includes Rory Kinnear, Sean Harris, Lyndsey Marshal, Killian Scott and Georgie Smith. This also features a score by The Chemical Brothers, some of which can be heard in the trailer. It seems like a solid crime thriller with some intense dramatic scenes and entertaining action, but it's oddly being released very quietly later this month by A24 in the US (see the US trailer here), which makes me a bit concerned. Have a look.

Watch: Official US Trailer for Wacky Polish Mermaid Film 'The Lure'

The Lure Trailer

"All you need to do is have fun. The rest is easy." Janus Films has debuted an official US trailer (red band for mermaid nudity) for a film titled The Lure, a wacky Polish indie about two mermaid girls who join a human band in Warsaw. Part comedy, part cabaret, part horror, part romance, you won't find anything else like this film out there, though it may be a little too wacky for some. The cast includes Marta Mazurek, Michalina Olszanska, Kinga Preis, Andrzej Konopka, Jakub Gierszal, Zygmunt Malanowicz, Katarzyna Herman and Marcin Kowalczyk. I've been hearing about this film for a while, ever since it premiered at Sundance last year, and it's destined to become a cult classic - catch it in theaters this winter.
