Another Creepy UK Trailer for Dinner Horror 'The Feast' from Wales

The Feast UK Trailer

"Everything looks so delicious." Picturehouses in the UK has revealed another new official UK for a freaky horror film titled The Feast, filmed in Welsh and directed by Welsh filmmaker Lee Haven Jones. This first premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival last year, and it already opened in the US last fall - we already posted the IFC trailer back then. This horror feature follows a young woman serving privileged guests at a dinner party in a remote house in rural Wales. However, the assembled guests do not realize they are about to eat their last supper. Something is coming for them. Annes Elwy stars as the very creepy Cadi, she's joined by Lisa Palfrey, Caroline Berry, Nia Roberts, Julian Lewis Jones, Steffan Cennydd, Sion Alun Davies, and Chris Gordon. This trailer and the new UK poster give away just a bit more than the US marketing, but there's still many mysteries to be discovered within. What is in all the food? Bon appétit.

Official Trailer for Health & Medical Research Doc 'The Human Trial'

The Human Trial Trailer

"I don't feel guilty, I feel hopeful!" And sometimes hope is what matters most. Abramorama has unveiled an official trailer for The Human Trial, a documentary film about trying to find & test a diabetes cure. The film follows different researchers across seven years of time, and it will be ready to debut starting in June. Chronicling the intimate stories of two patients living with Type 1 Diabetes, a physically and financially exhausting lifelong condition, it hopes for this overdue cure – needed now more than ever. Maren Badger and Greg Romero are the guinea pigs in a radical stem cell trial to cure their T1D. After it seemed like this day would never come, they navigate their emotions as they undergo this new life-altering treatment. The filmmakers reveal the mental & physical rollercoaster that scientists and patients go through as they travel along the road to a cure for the disease. This looks like an emotional and inspiring look at modern medicine.

Cannes 2022: Ruben Östlund Sinks Capitalism in 'Triangle of Sadness'

Triangle of Sadness

So this is what happens when you put a bunch of rich assholes on a big yacht! Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund is one of my favorite filmmakers these days - he's a genius when it comes to satire and mocking the most absurd parts of society. He makes films that say what you shouldn't say, that directly call out the bullshit, and then fling that bullshit around right back into everyone's face. Östlund already won the Palme d'Or in Cannes a few years ago with his comedy The Square, and already earned acclaim and tons of awards for Force Majuere from 2014. He's pretty much free to do whatever he wants now and his new film is titled Triangle of Sadness, which is an odd name for a film about a yacht full of rich assholes. That's because the name is a reference to the patch of skin between the eyes and the nose, most prominent in models who need to downplay their triangles of sadness. Look sharp and pretend you love capitalism, folks! All aboard.

Cannes 2022: Lola Quivoron's 'Rodeo' is an Impressive Feature Debut


Every year there are a handful of top notch films that premiere at major film festivals that are so impressive it's hard to believe they're the first feature film made by the filmmakers behind them. Earlier this year it was Fresh slicing it up at Sundance, directed by Mimi Cave; and last year it was The Lost Daughter, directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal (she even won the DGA Award for Best First Feature). Watch these films and they seem to be made by exceptionally talented directors with years of experience directing many other films, as they know how to craft scenes and hone the narrative at the same level as the best filmmakers out there. At this year's Cannes Film Festival, Rodeo is one of the most impressive feature debuts - joining these others as a stand out film that feels like it was made by someone who has made plenty of films before. In reality, this really is French filmmaker Lola Quivoron's feature directorial debut - and it's a gripping & exhilarating film.

Another Trailer for Marvel's 'Ms. Marvel' Series Starring Iman Vellani

Ms. Marvel Trailer

"If you save one life… you save the world." Disney has debuted another new 60-second "Destiny" trailer for a new Marvel Studios series Ms. Marvel, a sort of spin-off from Captain Marvel, similar to the Hawkeye series about a nerdy fan of the Avengers who ends up becoming a superhero herself. Ms. Marvel introduces us to Kamala Khan, played by Iman Vellani, a 16-year-old Muslim Pakistani-American from Jersey City, NJ who writes superhero fan fiction. She discovers she has her own polymorphous (shape-shifting) powers. The series cast also includes Aramis Knight as "Red Dagger", Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, and Azhar Usman. You know, I honestly think this looks pretty dang good. Like Hawkeye, I wasn't expecting to be into it, but I thoroughly enjoyed that series and there were a few outstanding episodes. Ms. Marvel might just be worth a watch, too.

Miu Tse Stops a Kidnapping in 'Ip Man: The Awakening' Film Trailer

Ip Man: The Awakening Trailer

"I've heard that you're quite the fighter." Well Go USA has revealed a new official US trailer for another new Ip Man movie - this one called Ip Man: The Awakening. It already opened in China & Hong Kong last year, and is available to watch on streaming from the Hi-YAH! service right now in the US. This one stars a new Ip Man - actor Miu Tse. While visiting Hong Kong, the young Master Ip intervenes in a kidnapping attempt, unintentionally igniting a turf war with a ruthless human trafficking ring. In retaliation, the gang kidnaps one of Ip Man's close friends, leaving him with no choice but to challenge the group's notoriously brutal boxing champion head-on. The cast also includes Guanying Chen, Hua Qi Long, Zhao Yu Xuan, and Hao Yan Fei. This definitely doesn't look like it has the same filmmaking artistry as the last few Ip Man movies (Kung Fu Master), but at least there should be some good fights. We can hope for that, right?

Official Trailer for George Miller's 'Three Thousand Years of Longing'

Three Thousand Years of Longing Trailer

It's time to explore an exciting new vision from the mind of George Miller… MGM has revealed the first official trailer for the grand new George Miller movie titled Three Thousand Years of Longing, which has been described as more of an epic romantic thriller than anything like any of his past movies. This is premiering today at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, hence the trailer launching in unison with the film's unveiling before it lands in theaters nationwide this August. A lonely scholar, on a trip to Istanbul, discovers a Djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. What she wants is love, but can and should he grant it to her? Along their journey together they explore time and passion and the incredible powers of love. Tilda Swinton co-stars with Idris Elba, with a massive ensemble cast including Aamito Lagum, Burcu Gölgedar, Matteo Bocelli, Kaan Guldur, and Alyla Browne. This looks spectacular! I'd expect nothing less from Miller. It looks so ravishing & audacious, he's shooting for the Moon. Can't wait to watch.

Cannes 2022: Exploring 'The Eight Mountains' with Luca Marinelli

The Eight Mountains Review

"It's not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves." –Sir Edmund Hillary. Mountains are mystical, magical, and extraordinary. Some people are born in the mountains, and they never leave, unable to step away from them. Some people are born in the mountains, and leave to find their place elsewhere, yet always longing to return. Those who are drawn to their poetic majesty never forget their grandeur and immensity no matter where they are on this planet. One of the best films from the 2022 Cannes Film Festival so far is The Eight Mountains, an Italian feature (originally Le Otto Montagne) co-directed by Belgian filmmakers Felix van Groeningen (director of The Broken Circle Breakdown, Belgica, and Beautiful Boy) and Charlotte Vandermeersch. It's another breathtaking, slow burn story about men and mountains. It takes its time, following boys growing into men as two friends navigate the cliffs, passages, and snowy peaks of their lives.

Final Trailer for Fincher's 'Love, Death + Robots Vol. 3' Sci-Fi Series

Love, Death + Robots Vol. 3 Trailer

"You can begin to feel your own existence… what you are, basically, is the fabric and structure of existence itself." This is the best trailer yet! Only 90 seconds and it's fantastic. Netflix has revealed one final trailer for their latest edition of the Love, Death + Robots for-adults-only animation series. This latest set of shorts is dubbed Volume 3 and it includes 9 segments, including one directed by David Fincher himself (the giant crab one). This new selection of shorts is now available to watch on Netflix as of May 20th! Buckle up and have fun. Terror, imagination and beauty combine in nine new episodes which stretch from uncovering an ancient evil to a comedic apocalypse, telling startling short stories of fantasy, horror and science-fiction with trademark wit and visual invention. The voice heard in this trailer is an excerpt from Alan Watts "Dream" speech (in full here). "If you awaken, from this illusion…" Maybe we don't want to wake from it…? I can't wait to watch every last one of these!! Such an awesome series. Let's hope they keep making more and more.

Chris Pratt is Cmdr. Reece in First Teaser for 'The Terminal List' Series

The Terminal List Teaser

"Nothing in this file adds up." Amazon has revealed a teaser trailer for a new series called The Terminal List, adapted from a book by Jack Carr about a former Navy SEAL. Wait - hasn't Chris Pratt already played this same kind of role many times before? Maybe. A former Navy SEAL officer investigates why his entire platoon was ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. As new evidence comes to light, Reece discovers dark forces working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those he loves. Which is why it's a full series and not just a movie. This stars Chris Pratt stars as Commander James Reece, along with Taylor Kitsch, Constance Wu, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Riley Keough, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Arlo Mertz. This looks like yet another generic military action series like the Jack Reacher or Jack Ryan series before it. Unless there's some clever sci-fi twist, this doesn't look it has anything original to offer us.

Ralph Fiennes & Jessica Chastain in Morocco in 'The Forgiven' Trailer

The Forgiven Trailer

"There's nowhere to run, nowhere to hide." Roadside Attractions + Vertical Ent. have revealed the official trailer for an indie film titled The Forgiven, the latest from filmmaker John Michael McDonagh (Calvary, War on Everyone). This premiered at last year's Toronto Film Festival to some mixed reviews, but I'm still curious to give it a look when it opens this summer. The Forgiven takes place over a weekend in the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, and explores the reverberations of a random accident on the lives of both the local Muslims, and Western visitors to a house party in a grand villa. Ralph Fiennes & Jessica Chastain star as wealthy Londoners on a trip to a party at a lavish villa, who end up in trouble after a tragic accident with a local teenage boy. The full cast also includes Matt Smith, Ismael Kanater, Caleb Landry Jones, Abbey Lee, with Saïd Taghmaoui and Christopher Abbott. This looks like an impressively smart film about, as one of the quotes states, "the haves and the have nots." We recommend giving this trailer a watch.
