Brand New US Trailer for Epic Chinese Action Movie 'Wolf Warrior II'

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.

First Trailer for Steven Spielberg's 'The Post' Starring Hanks & Streep

The Post Trailer

"To make this decision, to risk her fortune and the company that's been her entire life, well I think that's brave." 20th Century Fox has unveiled the first trailer for Steven Spielberg's other film, The Post. Before Spielberg's Ready Player One movie comes out, he has this one first - a story about The Washington Post and publishing the Pentagon Papers about the Vietnam War. This seems like a very important, very timely story to present in these times. It will hit theaters in December and expand wide in January. Tom Hanks stars as editor Ben Bradlee, and Meryl Streep stars as Post publisher Katharine Graham. 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. This looks damn good, as fully expected, and it looks like it follows in the footsteps of Spotlight. Fire it up.

Official US Trailer for Hong Sang-soo's 'On the Beach at Night Alone'

On the Beach at Night Alone Trailer

"How old are you really? Are you back for good?" The Cinema Guild has released an official US trailer for the latest film from prolific Korean filmmaker Hong Sang-soo, titled On the Beach at Night Alone. This first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, where actress Kim Min-hee won the Silver Bear for Best Actress. It also played at the Los Angeles, Melbourne, Zurich, New York and London Film Festivals. "Art imitates life in this quietly devastating masterpiece" about an actress who wanders around a seaside town, thinking about her relationship with a married man. The film stars Kim Min-hee, Seo Younghwa, Jung Jaeyoung, and Moon Sungkeun. Hong Sang-soo is beloved by critics, but he's kind of an acquired taste, making slow moving but deeply contemplative films. His latest might be worth your time to discover.

WTF is This? Casper Van Dien in Trailer for Sci-Fi Film 'Ratpocalypse'

Ratpocalypse Trailer

"If they think we're going down without a fight… Oh hell gnaw!" Gravitas Ventures has released a trailer for a WTF film called Ratpocalypse, which surprisingly has nothing to do with the documentary Rat Film, nor does it have to do with the current state of the world. Well, but it kinda does. The film was already released in Moscow in 2015 and is just now getting a VOD release in America. Casper Van Dien stars as a Senator who delivers a speech in Moscow about corruption, claiming it will turn met into "rats". Suddenly this starts happening and people start turning into rats for real. Also starring Victoria Summer, Linda Bella, Catherine Oxenberg, Robert Craighead, Ilya Slovesnik, Natalia Lapina, Lidiya Korotko, and Alexander Khachatryan. The footage in the trailer is even weirder than it seems, if you dare to look.

Joseph Fiennes in First Trailer for 'Wings of Eagles' Set in WWII China

Wings of Eagles Trailer

"We'll get through this… together." Archstone Distribution has released an official trailer for a film titled Wings of Eagles, or On Wings of Eagles, formerly known as The Last Race. Produced in China, this film tells true the story of a Scottish athlete stuck in war-torn China during WWII. Joseph Fiennes plays Eric Liddell, a Scottish athlete and missionary in China. After competing in the 1924 Summer Olympics, he then returned to China and remained there until his death in a Japanese civilian internment camp in 1945. Liddell's story is also told in the famous film Chariots of Fire, though this new film focuses more on his experiences in China (he was originally born there of Scottish missionary parents). The film's cast includes Shawn Dou, Elizabeth Arends, Jesse Kove, Augusta Xu-Holland, and Simon Twu. Check this out.

More Rabbit Trouble - Full Trailer for Will Gluck's 'Peter Rabbit' Movie

Peter Rabbit Movie Trailer

"This is our ancestor's land! It's time to get our garden back." Sony Pictures has debuted a new, full-length UK trailer for Will Gluck's Peter Rabbit movie, a hybrid CGI family comedy about the lovable rabbit rascal who messes with Mr. McGregor. Peter Rabbit is voiced by James Corden, and the triplets Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail, are voiced by Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley. The human cast includes Domhnall Gleeson as Mr. McGregor, plus Rose Byrne. The footage in this trailer is so goofy, and not in any entertaining way, just an endless amount of wacky things happening involving animals that can talk. It's so quintessentially British, too. From what I hear, Paddington 2 is much better than this will ever be and is worth your time. I can barely even get through this trailer without cringing. Try to have fun.
