This his first in 16 years since last making Little Children in 2006. Set in the international world of classical music, the film centers on Lydia Tár - as played by Cate Blanchett. She is widely considered one of the greatest living composer / conductors and she was also the first-ever female chief conductor of a major German orchestra.

This is such a terrific trailer - doesn't give away too much. Don't miss this when it opens.

My Neighbor Adolf Trailer

"You are… a good neighbor." Signature Ent. in the UK has revealed the official trailer for an indie comedy titled My Neighbor Adolf, made by a Russian-Israeli filmmaker. Based on a true story, set in Colombia in the 1960s. Polsky is a lonely and grumpy Holocaust survivor who is now living in the remote Colombian countryside. He mostly spends his days playing chess and tending to his beloved rose bushes. However, when a mysterious old German man moves in next door he begins to suspect his new neighbor is… Adolf Hitler. Since nobody believes him, he embarks on a detective mission to find the evidence. But, in order to prove his suspicions, Polsky will need to be closer to his neighbor than he would like – so close that the two could almost become friends. Starring David Hayman as Polsky and Udo Kier as his neighbor, along with Danharry Colorado and Olivia Silhavy. This looks quit good! Not as strange as it sounds. I'm intrigued by the relationship they build together, and how the story plays out with them. It might be worth a watch.

Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power Trailer

"If the camera is predatory, then the culture is predatory as well." Kino Lorber has unveiled the official trailer for a documentary film titled Brainwashed: Sex-Camera-Power, which originally premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

The film investigates the politics of cinematic shot design, and how this meta-level of filmmaking intersects with the on-going twin epidemics of sexual abuse/assault and employment discrimination against women. It's a deep-dive into patriarchal power, and how it even seeps into every last shot in cinema. Featuring over 175 movie clips from 1896 to 2020. The film also features interviews with an all-star cast of women and non-binary industry professionals discussing all of this, including: Julie Dash, Penelope Spheeris, Charlyne Yi, Joey Soloway, Catherine Hardwicke, Eliza Hittman, Rosanna Arquette. The result is an electrifying call-to-action that will fundamentally change the way you see – and watch – movies.

'The Year of the Dog' Film About Strays: An Alcoholic & His Rescue

The Year of the Dog Doc Trailer

"He's a sensitive dog, and you iwll have to become sensitive, too. Lean into that connection." Nova Vento Ent. has unveiled an official trailer for an indie true story film titled The Year of the Dog, which is not a documentary but a feature based on real events. The film is made by Rob Grabow, who sold his condo and put everything into making this. He spent years in Alaska, working around and meeting people, including a dogsled musher who was having a difficult journey with alcoholism and addiction, who credited his sobriety in large part to one of his dogs; a high-spirited Alaskan husky. This is that story turned into a film. A loner alcoholic finds a path to recovery when he meets a stray dog with a unique talent. The film stars Michael Spears, Rob Grabow, Jon Proudstar, Alyssa Groenig, and Jeff Medley. Awww! Of course this looks wonderful - it's a dog movie! It looks a bit rough around the edges as an indie film, but it has all the heart and soul it needs, especially with an adorable husky leading the way. Keep an eye out for this coming soon.

Trailer for 'Bad Axe' Documentary About an Asian American Family

Bad Axe Trailer

"It's a hard time to be going through right now." IFC has revealed an official trailer for an award-winning documentary called Bad Axe, which first premiered at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival. It won the Audience Award for Best Doc and a Special Jury Prize for "Exceptional Intimacy in Storytelling" at SXSW, and tons of other awards at festivals throughout this year. Bad Axe tells the story of a Cambodian family who owns a restaurant in rural Michigan throughout 2020. Filmmaker David Siev heads home and films them during 2020 - the tumultuous year the family faced their business being shut down during the pandemic. They also experienced a big increase in racism due to their Asian heritage, dealt with harassment by anti-vaxxers, and the various family members had different reactions to the rise of the BLM movement in their conservative town. The film unveils the complex dynamics within the family, especially between the different generations and each of their takes on all the political strife that we all experienced in 2020. "They're all as passionate as they are flawed and the film beautifully captures both aspects." This looks like a very heartfelt, moving film.

Leslie Bibb & Dermot Mulroney in 'The Inhabitant' Horror Film Trailer

The Inhabitant Trailer

"You can't hide from an evil that lives within." Lionsgate has revealed an official trailer for a psychological horror thriller titled The Inhabitant, from filmmaker Jerren Lauder. This is actually a weird re-imagining of the classic axe murderer Lizzie Borden story – but about one of her descendants, a young woman named Tara. As Tara begins to hear voices and have paranoid visions of butchering her family, people in her small town are attacked and killed — and all evidence points to her. Of course. Can she confront the past and her own family history to find out the truth and stop more bloodshed? The film stars Dermot Mulroney, Leslie Bibb, Odessa A'zion, Lizze Broadway, Ryan Francis, and Michael Cooper Jr. Unfortunately this looks pretty bad - no wonder they're dumping it on VOD in a few weeks. Doesn't look worth your time.

First Trailer for Passionate Romance 'Game of Love' with Bella Thorne

Game of Love Trailer

"What is going on between you guys?" "Nothing is going on, okay?" Vertical Ent. has revealed an official trailer for Game of Love, a passionate romantic drama set in Italy. The logline for this is quite tantalizing: "An accident will force Vivien and Roy to come to a stop and reclaim their lives, one minute at the time, and finally start living in a present that perhaps will prove to be more exciting than any predefined." But this ends up looking like just another cheesy romance anyway. Roy and Vivien arrive in Sicily to prepare for the sale of Roy's family estate. During the visit, a mysterious woman arrives and befriends Vivien, much to Roy's displeasure. Tensions build & lines are crossed as secrets from Roy's past force them to face new questions. Starring Bella Thorne and Benjamin Mascolo, along with Alma Noce, Francesca Inaudi, Simone Coppo, Bruno Di Chiara, and Barbara Giummarra. Looks extra cheesy & dramatic - not my cup o' tea.

Final Trailer for David Gordon Green's Horror Finale 'Halloween Ends'

Halloween Ends Trailer

"You pretend like you've moved on, but you're just obsessed with death!" Universal has debuted the second & final official trailer for Halloween Ends, the grand finale, final (or not?) sequel in the back-from-the-dead horror series from filmmaker David Gordon Green (and co-writer Danny McBride). So who's ready for one more ending? They filmed this back-to-back with last year's Halloween Kills and it's being released this October - once again on streaming on Peacock the same time it's in theaters. The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode comes to a spine-chilling climax in this final installment of the franchise - set four years after the events of Halloween Kills. Even after the entire town went after him in the last movie, he remains an unstoppable and unkillable evil force. Jamie Lee Curtis returns once again as Laurie Strode, joined by Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Rohan Campbell, & Kyle Richards, plus both Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney credited as playing "The Shape". It almost feels like this trailer gives away the whole film? It's definitely an all-out "we need to do whatever we can to get people to see this film" trailer. Have a look.

Official Trailer for 'The Playlist' Sensationalizing the Creation of Spotify

The Playlist Trailer

"Shut them down or we won't have an industry." Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for the mini-series The Playlist, arriving this October. This is pretty much The Social Network but about the creation of Spotify, following other series recently about tech businesses – from Uber to WeWork. In this hyper-fictionalized account of the true story: led by Swedish tech entrepreneur Daniel Ek, a group of passionate young people come together in what seems to be the impossible task to revolutionize the music industry - and the world. They set out to create a legal streaming service for music. The series stars Edvin Endre as Daniel Ek, Ulf Stenberg as Per Sundin, Gizem Erdogan as Petra Hansson, Joel Lützow as Andreas Ehn, Christian Hillborg as Martin Lorentzon, and Janice Kamya Kavander as "Bobbie T". Also with Valter Skarsgård, Amy Deasismont, Hanna Ardéhn, Ella Rappich, Agnes Kittelsen, and Sofia Karemyr. This all looks like extremely exaggerated, over-the-top drama, but might still be an entertaining series to watch.

One More Trailer for Survival Thriller 'Fall' Stuck on a Tall Radio Tower

Fall Trailer

"If you're scared of dying, don't be afraid to live." Lionsgate has revealed another, extra official trailer for the survival horror thriller Fall, which has already been playing in theaters. It has been out for about a month already and is also on VOD services to watch now, with the Blu-ray release coming up in October. For best friends Becky and Hunter, life is all about conquering fears and pushing limits. But after they climb 2,000 feet to the top of a remote, abandoned radio tower, they find themselves stranded with no way down. Now Becky and Hunter's expert climbing skills will be put to the ultimate test as they desperately fight to survive the elements. Starring Virginia Gardner and Grace Caroline Currey, along with Jeffrey Dean Morgan in a small role. I watched this recently and it's the most edge-of-your-seat experience I've had this year with a film - utterly nerve-wracking, sweaty palms intense. If you're afraid of heights, don't watch this.
