Join the Jaeger Uprising - Viral Teaser Video for 'Pacific Rim: Uprising'

Pacific Rim: Uprising Teaser

Join the Jaeger Uprising! Well, this is a cool way to introduce the new movie. Legendary + Universal have debuted a viral teaser trailer video for Pacific Rim 2, known as Pacific Rim: Uprising. The video is an advertisement explaining what exactly a Jaeger is (the giant fighting robots controlled by two people who interlink via brain technology) and ends with an upbeat message encouraging fans to sign-up to be a Jaeger pilot. "Now accepting pilot applications" at GoJaeger.com. The video also features our first look at John Boyega as Jake Pentecost, in his Jaeger helmet. The full cast of the sequel includes Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Adria Arjona, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman, Rinko Kikuchi, and Karan Brar. I hope we get to see an actual trailer with real footage soon, but for now this is a cool way to start the Jaegar hype yet again.

First Teaser Trailer for Todd Haynes' Wonderful Film 'Wonderstruck'

Wonderstruck Teaser Trailer

Meet Rose and Ben. Amazon Studios + Roadside Attractions have debuted the first teaser trailer for the new film from Todd Haynes, titled Wonderstruck, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. The film tells two different stories set 50 years apart, following two kids who venture into New York City. One of them is a deaf girl who escapes home and tries to find her mom. The other is a young deaf boy who escapes home in search of a room at the Natural History Museum. Millicent Simmonds stars as Rose, and Oakes Fegley (from Pete's Dragon) stars as Ben. The full cast includes Julianne Moore, Cory Michael Smith, James Urbaniak, Damian Young, and Lauren Ridloff. It's an inspiring film. I wrote in my Cannes review it's "as much about the magic of New York City as it is about the magic of connection".

The Master Returns in First Trailer for 'Jigsaw' Arriving This October

Jigsaw Trailer

"You want mercy? Play by the rules." Lionsgate has revealed the first trailer for the next Saw movie, titled simply Jigsaw, referring to the original mastermind behind all the deadly traps and torture. Even though he supposedly died in one of the earlier movies, this title and the new trailer makes me wonder if Jigsaw (played by Tobin Bell) is somehow back from the dead. The cast this time includes Laura Vandervoort, Callum Keith Rennie, Matt Passmore, Hannah Emily Anderson, Brittany Allen, and others. Even though we already had a 3D Saw recently, this one is supposedly taking Jigaw's "signature brand of twisted scenarios to the next level." This didn't look so bad until the lasers on the head trap, then I rolled my eyes.

Taraji P. Henson Plays an Assassin in First Full Trailer for 'Proud Mary'

Proud Mary Trailer

"You a cop?" "Not exactly." Screen Gems has unveiled the first official trailer for a film titled Proud Mary, starring the always awesome Taraji P. Henson as an assassin. This is slated for release in early January, which is never a good sign, but I'm hopeful for something entertaining. We don't know much about this, except that Henson meets a young boy on a hit gone wrong and she decides to watch over him. The full cast includes Neal McDonough, Danny Glover, Xander Berkeley, Billy Brown, Margaret Avery, Jahi Di'Allo Winston, and Owen Burke. This is a very fun, clever trailer, without much dialogue in it (yet), relying entirely on the music, visuals, and some kick ass action. Damn! I'm looking forward to this already.

Comic-Con 2017: Our First Look at Preview Night Showfloor Photos

Comic-Con 2017

It is our tradition to kick off Comic-Con by walking the showfloor on preview night and taking photos of anything movie-related. This year, since Alex is not attending himself, the photos are coming from Marc Levy - a photographer working at Comic-Con. Our presence at Comic-Con has changed in the last few years (we're taking a break after 10 years since Alex has relocated to Berlin) but it's still always exciting to follow. To keep up with the tradition anyway, we present our initial gallery of shots from the showfloor at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 with photos taken by Marc exclusively for FS.net. There are tons of superheroes galore, as expected, along with Star Wars everywhere, and plenty of geeky goodies in every corner. Take a look below.

First US Trailer for Egyptian Crime Thriller 'The Nile Hilton Incident'

The Nile Hilton Incident Trailer

"Sir, I saw what happened at the Hilton." Strand Releasing has debuted the first official trailer for Tarik Saleh's The Nile Hilton Incident, an intense political thriller set against the back drop of the Egyptian Revolution. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and the film won the top Grand Jury Prize in the World Cinema Dramatic competition during the festival. The story is about a police office investigating the murder of a woman at the Hilton hotel, who discovers there's much more going on than it seems. The cast features Fares Fares, Mari Malek, Yasser Ali Maher, Slimane Dazi, Ahmed Selim, Mohamed Yousry, and Hania Amar. This seems like it has the vibe of an old school noir mystery, but with modern sensibilities and context. The film looks like it's definitely worth catching in theaters this year.

The Villainess Trailer

"Let me show you what you made me into." Well Go USA has released the first official trailer for an action film from Korea titled The Villainess, which premiered out-of-competition at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this summer. I heard some rave reviews of this and I definitely want to check it out. Ok-bin Kim stars as Sook-hee, a trained assassin who tries to become a stage actress after giving 10 years of service as an assassin. But her dark past comes creeping back and she must take things into her own hands to finish her work and be free once and for all. The full cast includes Eun-ji Jo, Seo-hyung Kim, Ha-kyun Shin, and Jun Sung. One review from Cannes says that its "dynamically staged, blood-drenched action sequences are a highlight." Based on all the buzz and footage from this trailer, I'm very excited to see this film. Take a look.

The Boys are Back in Second Trailer for 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

"As your American cousins, we'll be working side-by-side." 20th Century Fox has released a second trailer for the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, once again directed by Matthew Vaughn, bringing back Taron Egerton as the British superspy known as "Eggsy". This trailer is being debuted in time for Comic-Con in San Diego and is wild red band trailer to boot. Colin Firth also returns as Harry Hart, with Mark Strong as Merlin, and a cast featuring Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Vinnie Jones, as well as Hanna Alström, and Sophie Cookson. This sequel seems to be a big riff on America as the British spies head over there to kick some butt and save the world. So far this looks fantatic, and I'm hoping it's as good as this trailer looks, because hot damn. Some badass action.

Official Trailer for 'May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers' Doc

May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers

"We are kind of at a crossroads…" Oscilloscope Labs has debuted the official trailer for the documentary May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers, which is exactly what it says - a "portrait" of the band known as the Avett Brothers, from North Carolina. The film is an Apatow Production in association with RadicalMedia and HBO Documentary Films; 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 documentary is more than just a music doc, described as "a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time." This looks great, and I admit I'm even more intrigued because Apatow is co-directing it. I want to see what they're all about.

First Trailer for Kosinski's 'Only the Brave' About Wildfire Firefighters

Only the Brave Trailer

"It was the most beautiful and terrible thing I've ever seen." Sony Pictures has finally revealed a trailer for a movie called Only the Brave, telling the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. This was formerly titled Granite Mountain and then Granite Mountain Hotshots before they switched to Only the Brave. Directed by Tron Legacy's Joe Kosinski, Only the Brave is about an elite crew of firemen from Prescott, Arizona who battled a wildfire in Yarnell, AZ in June of 2013 that claimed the lives of 19 of their members. The huge cast includes Josh Brolin, Miles Teller, Jeff Bridges, James Badge Dale, Geoff Stults, Andie MacDowell, Ben Hardy, Taylor Kitsch, and Jennifer Connelly. This surprisingly looks pretty good, better than I was expecting. There seems to be an emotional side to it, along with the threat of the fire.

Full-Length Trailer for 'Brigsby Bear' Shows the Power of Imagination

Brigsby Bear Trailer

"Try to imagine a hero…" Sony Classics has debuted the second trailer for indie film Brigsby Bear, one of the breakout hits of the Sundance Film Festival this year. This full-length trailer gives away most of the film (so watch out), but it's still a great trailer. Brigsby Bear stars Kyle Mooney (from SNL) as a kid who has grown up in an underground bunker, watching one and only one TV show over-and-over - called Brigsby Bear. One day everything stops, and he has to deal with the real world. The full cast includes Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Ryan Simpkins, Andy Samberg, Michaela Watkins, Jane Adams, and Chance Crimin. The film played at Sundance and Cannes (read my review) and it's an excellent film, most of all because it's a lover letter to the power of storytelling. I hope people take a moment to go see this.

Michael Fassbender in First Trailer for Serial Killer Film 'The Snowman'

The Snowman Trailer

"He calls himself 'The Snowman Killer'… he's completely insane." Universal has unveiled the first trailer for a new serial killer thriller titled The Snowman, adapted from Jo Nesbø's bestselling novel, from Swedish director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). Michael Fassbender stars as the lead detective who investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter. He begins to believe there's a serial killer on the lose who may start killing again soon if he can't stop him first. The full cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, and J.K. Simmons. This was filmed entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan. Very intense trailer. This reminds me of both "Fargo" and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, with a dash of Zodiac thrown in. I'm definitely curious, seems like there could be some good twists and turns in this. So who is the killer?
