"What do you think you'll find in here?" Netflix has revealed the first teaser trailer for a mysterious new Korean sci-fi series titled The Silent Sea, arriving on Netflix in December. Not too long! Set in the future, when the planet suffers from a lack of water & food caused by desertification. Yoon Jae is a soldier for the space agency. He is selected for a team to travel to the moon. Their mission is to find a mysterious sample from an abandoned research station. During a perilous 24-hour mission on the moon, they try to retrieve samples from a research facility steeped in classified secrets. But one by one, they start to end up dead… "A suspenseful sci-fi mystery set on a lunar base." The title is a reference to the real Sea of Tranquility, which is 544 miles in diameter, and is also where Apollo 11 first landed in 1969. This stars Bae Doona (best known as Sonmi-451 in Cloud Atlas), Gong Yoo, Lee Joon, Kim Sun-young, Lee Mu-saeng, and Lee Sung-wook. There's a few "I wonder what she is looking at?!" shots. I definitely want to find out what's going on.
"Something more aggressive had to be done." This is scary! HBO has revealed the official trailer for The Forever Prisoner, yet another new documentary film made by acclaimed director Alex Gibney. He also released The Crime of the Century this year, helped produced The First Wave, and also released Crazy, Not Insane last year. The Forever Prisoner is an HBO original documentary film that takes viewers, for the first time, behind the architects of America's torture program. The doc focuses on the story of Abu Zubaydah, the first high-value detainee subjected to the CIA's program of Enhanced Interrogation Techniques (EITs), later identified as torture by those outside the agency. The film digs deep into the provocative question: "Are we prepared to abandon our principles in order to defend them?" I think too many might actually say "yes"… This looks at Guantanamo Bay and how torture was happening there for years. This isn't the same prisoner as the one in The Mauritanian, but they are similar stories anyway. Sometimes I wonder if America will ever reckon with the things it was doing. The more stories like this that come out, the more horrifying it seems…
"You can get rid of them whenever you want." Janus Films has debuted a new official trailer for a 4K re-release of the classic 1951 Italian surreal comedy film Miracle in Milan, which first premiered at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival, where it won the top prize Palme d'Or at the end of the fest. It was first restored in 2015, and the new 4K restoration premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival all over again. An infant found in a cabbage patch (by 77-year-old silent screen diva Emma Gramatica) grows up to be Francesco Golisano's Totó, whose sunny outlook — plus the magic dove left by Gramatica — help the denizens of a ramshackle Milanese squatters' shantytown find the actual beauty in their lives. But when businessmen learn there's oil there — is it time to fly away? The follow-up to DeSica's international triumph The Bicycle Thief, Miracle in Milan received two BAFTA Awards nominations plus a few other awards during its original release. The film stars Emma Gramatica, Francesco Golisano, Paolo Stoppa, Guglielmo Barnabò, Brunella Bovo, and Anna Carena. Oh this looks magnificent! As usual, this is the perfect time to catch up and enjoy this.
"We cannot let that bully steal our hopes and dreams!" "Guts! Faith! These are the things you need now…" Universal has revealed a third & final trailer for Illumination's sequel Sing 2. As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Buster Moon and his friends must persuade reclusive rock star Clay Calloway to join them for the opening of a new show. This time they're heading to glamorous Redshore City, which looks a bit like Las Vegas, to open a new singing show and dazzle audiences. Sing 2 features the voice of Bono as Clay Calloway, a rock legend, with a fantastic cast including Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Nick Kroll, Bobby Cannavale, Halsey, Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric Andre, and Chelsea Peretti. This sequels looks like the epitome of bigger and better and louder, but it also looks like the plot deals with the pressures that come with getting bigger and better and louder. Can they pull it off? Is it too much stress? This animation sequel might just turn out better than the first movie.
"That summons thee to heaven or to hell." A24 has revealed a third teaser trailer for the film The Tragedy of Macbeth, Joel Coen's stylish black & white Shakespeare adaptation arriving in theaters soon. Watch the first two teasers for more footage. This already premiered at the New York and London Film Festivals, and lands on Apple TV+ in January right when it should be getting some Oscar nominations. Bruno Delbonnel's cinematography is dazzling. Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand co-star as Lord and Lady Macbeth in Joel Coen's bold and fierce Shakespeare adaptation; a tale of murder, madness, ambition, and wrathful cunning. A Scottish lord becomes convinced by a trio of witches that he will become the next King of Scotland. The film's full cast includes Bertie Carvel, Alex Hassell, Corey Hawkins, Harry Melling, Brendan Gleeson, Moses Ingram, and Kathryn Hunter. This is the darkest teaser yet, with Macbeth getting his murder on. He wants that crown! Must have it! Plus another shot of McDormand in the window.
With their home melting away, where do they go? Migrants is a wonderful 3D animated short film made by students studying at the PÔLE 3D animation school in France. Two polar bears are driven into exile due to global warming. They will encounter brown bears along their journey away from home, with whom they will try to cohabitate. But the brown bears don't like them there… The film offers a clever dual narrative - focusing on both climate change and refugees, by integrating both stories into one superb film about polar bears being forced to leave their natural habitat. Most of all, I'm most impressed by the choice to create all the bears with cloth - despite this being a CG short made on computers. The meaning of which is even more potent with that shot at the end, too. This 8-minute animated film is worth your time - watch in full below.
"Look at you, you're already under a spell…" Gravitas has released a new US trailer for Australian mystery thriller The Second, which is arriving in the US this fall after originally opening in Australia back in 2018. It's another story that mixes the intrigue of fiction from an author with reality and her own life. The persona of a celebrated author is threatened when her best friend and muse reveals the dark secret behind her first novel's provenance, igniting an incendiary tale of sex, lies & betrayal. Reviews say "director Mairi Cameron creates an prestige aesthetic that affects a sense of haunting isolation, and writer Stephen Lance's script manipulates time and memory to weave a disturbing tale of creation… What secrets are entangled in this fiction?" The film stars Rachel Blake, Susie Porter, Vince Colosimo, and Martin Sacks. Have a look.
"What kind of story do you want to tell, and how important is it to you?" Array has unveiled a trailer for the documentary film Love and Fury, which initially premiered last year at the prestigious Hot Docs Film Festival. It was also an official selection of the Seattle International Film Festival, imagineNATIVE Film and Media Arts Festival, Virginia Film Festival and DeadCenter Film Festival. Love and Fury chronicles a cadre of Native artists as they work to amplify indigenous creativity in a post-colonial world and navigate their careers without seeking permission. Made by Native American filmmaker Sterlin Harjo, also of this year's "Reservation Dogs" series on FX. "This lovingly made film explores the complex artistry of multiple Native American artists' while offering texture, nuance and insight into Native identities and perspectives." Enjoy.
"Now we're going into the spy business." It's almost time! 20th Century has released another 60-second TV trailer for The King's Man, the next prequel in Matthew Vaughn's Kingsman series. We've already posted tons of trailers for this before, but the marketing still rocks as this is looking better than ever. Discover the origins of the very first independent intelligence agency. This prequel goes back to the days of World War I, The Great War, to tell the origin story of The King's Man "spy" agency. It's lead by a kick ass ensemble of actors. Ralph Fiennes stars as the Duke, with Gemma Arterton, Matthew Goode, Tom Hollander, Harris Dickinson, Daniel Brühl, as well as Djimon Hounsou, and Charles Dance. Plus Rhys Ifans as big bad Russian villain Rasputin. The crazy goat scene at the end of this trailer is the best part about it - but I'm looking forward to watching all of it anyway. Seems like it's going to be a blast. Bring on December.
"There is now so much more that we know." Madman Films in Australia has debuted an official trailer for a seemingly different cut of Oliver Stone's new JFK documentary follow-up this year. Their version is officially titled JFK: Destiny Betrayed, which is described as a "four-part 'deep dive' into the infamous Kennedy assassination." The original version, titled JFK Revisited: Through The Looking Glass (watch that trailer) premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year and is still set to be released later (likely in 2022) in the US. Maybe it will be re-cut, too? Fresh evidence reveals the truth behind the lies and misinformation like no other JFK documentary has done before. The Cannes premiere cut is two hours, but this "four-part" version seems to include even more footage. "Viewers are also given a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the post-assassination actions and initial suspicions of Kennedy's brother, Robert, as well as his views on the official Warren Commission investigation. Additionally, assassination forensic and ballistic evidence is explored here in great detail." With narration by Whoopi Goldberg and Donald Sutherland. Take a look below.
"Sunny days, furry friends, classic songs, and a whole lot of heart." HBO has unveiled their own full trailer for the acclaimed documentary Street Gang: How We Got to Sesame Street, made by doc filmmaker Marilyn Agrelo (Mad Hot Ballroom). This intiially premiered at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival this year, and already opened in theaters back in April (watch the first trailer). The doc film chronicles the improbable origins and expansion of the groundbreaking show that not only changed children's TV, but it also had real-world effects on equality, education, and representation. With over 20 interviews with original writers, cast, and crew, and never-before-seen behind the scenes footage, Street Gang is told from the inside with humor and emotion, weaving together personal narratives and eyewitness accounts. The film explores the original mission of the "gang" that created this cultural phenomenon, spanning 50-plus years and reaching more than 150 countries. Even though this film already opened earlier in the year, this is an extra trailer for the HBO Max streaming debut in December. And if you haven't seen it yet, now is your time to catch up with it.
"When one has an abundance of power, they have a certain duty to use that power to--" Warner Bros has released the first full-length official trailer for the animated DC League of Super Pets movie, also known as simply DC Super Pets.

Superman's dog named Krypto (of course) teams up with other superhero pets to stop crime while Superman is on vacation. He teams up with a group of other super-powered pets and teaches them how to harness their newfound powers, work together, and become the superheroes they were destined to be.

The main voice cast includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kate McKinnon, John Krasinski, Vanessa Bayer, Natasha Lyonne, Diego Luna, and Keanu Reeves as Bruce Wayne(!!). This is going to be a blast! A much better trailer than that DC FanDome teaser. Meet the Super Pets below.
