Incredible Full Trailer for Hideaki Anno's 'Shin Kamen Rider' Movie
Whoa!! This looks awesome. Toei Studios in Japan recently released another live-action take on a classic tokusatsu franchise - an update on Kamen Rider. The great Hideaki Anno (also of Shin Godzilla) directed Shin Kamen Rider, which is now playing in cinemas in Japan. We still don't know when it will play in the US, hopefully later this year. A man who was given unwanted power & became a non-human. A woman who questions the theory of happiness she was given. Takeru Hongo, transformed into an Augment with killing power by the hands of the SHOCKER, escapes under the guidance of Ruriko Midorikawa, who was born to the organization but rebelled against it. He is drawn into an epic battle with the assassins who are closing in. What is justice? What is evil? Is there an end to the exchange of violence? Starring Sôsuke Ikematsu as Hongo, with Minami Hamabe, Masami Nagasawa, Shin'ya Tsukamoto, Takumi Saitoh, Kanata Hongô, and Nao Ômori as the voice of Kumo Augment-01. Uh this looks totally badass!! Even without understanding any of the dialogue, it seems like this might be the best of the Shin movies from Japan so far.

Another Teaser for Composer Film 'Chevalier' Feat. Kelvin Harrison Jr.
"Master of the sword, maestro of the bow." Searchlight Pics has unveiled a new promo spot for Chevalier, which is now set to open in theaters on April 21st next month. They're calling this a new trailer, though it's more of a 30-second TV spot - still looks damn good. It premiered at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival last year to rave reviews. Starring Kelvin Harrison Jr. in a "tour de force performance" as real life composer Joseph Bologne, "Chevalier" de Saint-Georges. The son of an African slave and a French plantation owner, Bologne rises to great heights in French society as a celebrated violinist-composer and fencer, complete with an ill-fated love affair and a falling out with Marie Antoinette and her court. It also stars Lucy Boynton as Antoinette, plus Samara Weaving, Minnie Driver, Marton Csokas, Sian Clifford, Alec Newman, Ronke Adekoluejo, and Alex Fitzalan. I am dying to see this!! I love me a good revolutionary film, and this looks like it should be an exhilarating tale of rebellion from the past. Conquering theaters in one month.
Watch: A Killer Microwave Horror Comedy Short 'Ding... You're Dead'
Here's a fun concept for a horror movie: what if the killer was… a microwave?! This short film from director Jay Salahi premiered a few years ago, but we're just catching up with it. Ding… You're Dead follows a negligent house sitter who is unknowingly stalked by a malevolent flesh-eating microwave. Salahi describes it as a "5-min Sam Raimi inspired Killer Microwave short. We use practical effects to suck someone through a microwave!" Inspired by all the fun B Horror / sci-fi films of the early '80s. Filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg watched it and praised it already, saying it's "super fun and REALLY well done." The short stars Trevor Larson, and a demonic microwave. I'm a big fan of throwback horror referencing the make-it-from-scratch mentality of the 80s, when they'd build any crazy idea practically to make it look awesome on screen. Enjoy.

Eerie Trailer for Human Flesh Doc Film 'De Humani Corporis Fabrica'
"What will be will be." Grasshopper Film has revealed an official US trailer for a strange, disgusting, eerie film titled De Humani Corporis Fabrica, made by the acclaimed doc directors Verena Paravel & Lucien Castaing-Taylor (Leviathan, Caniba). The title is Latin for "The Structure of the Human Body", and the film is described as "an immersive experience from the Harvard Sensory Ethnography Lab, an exhilarating and profound odyssey through the landscape of the human body." They pull footage from macro cameras placed on various medical instruments that go inside the human body. This doc first premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival in the Directors' Fortnight sidebar, which means it should be taken seriously, not as some exploitative, gross film. It focuses on five hospitals in northern Paris neighborhoods. It reveals that human flesh is an extraordinary landscape that exists only through the gaze & attention of others. It seems crazy fascinating, and not just for medical students. Dive deep into the human body & explore details in close-up.

Cherry, a driftless 25-year-old young woman discovers she is ten weeks pregnant and has only 24 hours to make a decision. Her journey will examine how softly life moves, even in our most urgent moments. "After playing countless festivals around the world, we are thrilled to partner with Entertainment Squad to share a deep-human comedy about women's rights and freedom to a broader audience." Alex Trewhitt stars as Cherry, with a cast including Joe Sachem, Dan Schultz, Sandy Duarte, Alice Bang, Hannah Alline, Melinda DeKay, and Angela Nicholas. Has some charm and some style, not sure about the rest of this.

Well Go USA has revealed an official US trailer for an action thriller titled Sakra, a wuxia martial arts film made by Donnie Yen - who directs and stars in this.

Wacky Estonian Stop-Motion 'The Old Man Movie: Lactopalypse' Trailer
"This cow is mine!" 606 Distribution has unveiled an official UK trailer for an Estonian animated comedy called The Old Man Movie: Lactopalypse, originally known as Vanamehe film or The Old Man: The Movie. Based on a popular Estonian web series, The Old Man Movie: Lactopalypse is the most outrageous, crowd-pleasing, stop-motion comedy in years. An outrageous road movie about The Old Man and his three grand-kids in a race against time to stop a milky madman hell bent on killing his prized cow to save the world. The kids and the Old Man have 24 hours to find and milk the rogue bovine before its exponentially expanding udders bring about the "Lactopalypse". Ha. Featuring the voices of Märt Avandi, Reio Blond, & Meriiyn Elge. The film won The Satoshi Kon Award for Excellence in Animation at Fantasia in 2020, and first opened in Estonia in 2019, finally finding intl. distribution this year. It reminds me of the Belgian stop-motion comedy A Town Called Panic, but with a few unique Estonian quirks. The film looks like the kind of wacky, ingenious animation discovery we all need more of these days - you do not want to miss this.
Must See Trailer for Tommy Wiseau's Hilarious Shark Movie 'Big Shark'
"You can run… You can hide… But that won't save you." Tommy Wiseau, famed director of The Room, is back!! I guess…? Maybe? A new trailer has debuted for his next feature film titled Big Shark. The second trailer for a shark movie out this week after The Black Demon, too. It's also Wiseau's only feature since The Room in 2003. The trailer launched on Variety along with a poster and info about a roadshow tour Wiseau is going on, playing the film in different cinemas around the country throughout 2023. So it will indeed be the return of Mr. Wiseau. The only simple synopsis available is: Three firefighters must save New Orleans from a shark attack. Because of course they do. It's no surprise to say that this looks like a parody film. Also a warning - the trailer ends halfway and suddenly turns into an ad for Wiesau's underwear brand - yes, for real. Very strange. Wiseau writes & directs Big Shark, and stars with Isaiah LaBorde & Mark Valeriano. A different trailer was put out in 2019, showing Greg Sestero, but he's not in this new tease. Chomp chomp.
Official Trailer for Acclaimed Trans Film 'Monica' Starring Trace Lysette
"I don't know what I would do if I couldn't be with my own mom at a moment like this…" IFC has revealed an official US trailer for Monica, which they will be releasing exclusively in art house theaters starting this May - right at the beginning of the summer movie season. It premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival last year in the main competition. The film is an intimate portrait of a trans woman who returns home to care for her dying mother. A delicate and nuanced story of a fractured family, the story explores universal themes of abandonment, aging, acceptance, and redemption. Andrea Pallaoro's film delves into Monica's internal world & state of mind, her pain & fears, her needs & desires, to explore universal themes of abandonment and forgiveness. The very talented Trace Lysette stars as Monica, along with Patricia Clarkson, Emily Browning, Adriana Barraza, and Joshua Close. This is a very quiet, intimate, sensitive film lead by an outstanding performance from Trace Lysette. It comes highly recommended from Venice. Get a look below.
Canadian Indie Film About Autism - Trailer for 'When Time Got Louder'
"This is for you to be able to do it by yourself." LevelFilm has revealed an official trailer for When Time Got Louder, a Canadian indie film that marks the feature directorial debut of LGBTQ filmmaker Connie Cocchia. This premiered at the Frameline Film Festival last year, and is screening at the Canadian Film Fest this month before it opens in select cinemas in Canada. Alas, we still don't have a US date set yet. Departing for college, Abbie leaves her parents and brother who has autism and is non-verbal. As she explores her independence and sexuality, she's torn between her new life and her love for her brother. The indie film stars Willow Shields as Abbie, Lochlyn Munro, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Jonathan Michael Simao as her brother Kayden. This reminds me of Sia's film Music, which got in trouble for reasons related to being inauthentic, hopefully this one is better (seems to be the director's own story). Looks like it's worth a watch.
Gibney's Tennis Doc 'Boom! Boom! The World vs. Boris Becker' Trailer
"That's not the end yet…" Apple has revealed the trailer for Alex Gibney's latest, a two-part series titled Boom! Boom! The World vs. Boris Becker. This doc is all about the German tennis superstar Boris Becker, covering his entire life story across two feature-length films. An inside look at the controversial life and career of the tennis great, featuring interviews with John McEnroe, Novak Djokovic, Björn Borg, and other icons. The film will explore the life of Becker, who became a tennis sensation when he won the first of his six majors at the age of just 17 and went on to have a glittering career, including 49 major career titles and an Olympic Gold. There is a massive story to telling… Part 1 - "Triumph": Winning Wimbledon at 17, Boris Becker becomes best in the world and a global superstar. But great expectations signal troubles ahead. And Part 2 - "Disaster": After ending his career in spectacular fashion, Becker continues to risk everything—leading to scandal, bankruptcy, and ultimately prison. I caught Part 1 during the Berlin Film Festival and it's fantastic - a thrilling, fascinating look at his achievements on the court. And he's absolutely an incredible athlete. But what happened after that, how did he end up throwing his life away? I'm intrigued to find out…
