"I'm going to count to three… and you'll go back to the past." Scream Factory has released an official trailer for On The 3rd Day, an Argentinian horror fantasy thriller launching on VOD / DVD this March in the US. It played at last year's Fantasia Film Festival and opened in Argentina earlier that year. While on a trip with her young son, Cecilia has a car accident. Three days later, she finds herself wandering a lonely road with no sign of her child—and no memory of what happened since the crash. Cecilia's desperate search for her son leads her on a tumultuous journey to face off against a religious fanatic who holds the shocking key to it all. The film stars Mariana Anghileri as Cecilia, along with Arturo Bonín, Diego Cremonesi, Lautaro Delgado, Mathias Domizi, & Nicolás Galvagno. This certainly looks creepy and strange. Unfortunately this trailer has English dubbing which is just awful, and is not the right way to present this film. Watch out.
"I used to use fabric as a way to hide myself. But now its become a way for me to show myself." Greenwich Ent. has released an official trailer for the documentary film Let Me Be Me, arriving in the US in theaters and on VOD late in February. This heartwarming, inspiring film is about a family that learns to connect with their autistic son through a radical treatment program. Withdrawn and constantly wrapping himself in fabric and blankets, Kyle was retreating from the world around him when he was very young and his parents weren't sure how to help. Twenty years later, the entire family looks back at Kyle's journey with candor and humor. Let Me Be Me reveals what happens when a boy who used fabric as his shield to hide himself grows up to become a fashion designer, forging connections with friends and family along the way. This looks like an inspiring, authentic story of growth, not only in learning to understand Kyle, but it's also a moving story of appreciating what makes someone who they are. "Everyone's on their own journey. I just want to be me."
"What can anyone tell me about our friend in the tollbooth?" Samuel Goldwyn Films has revealed an official US trailer for the film Tollbooth, formerly known as The Toll, a dark comedy thriller from Wales about a lone toll-booth operator with a past that is fast catching up with him. This premiered at the Glasgow Film Festival and is arriving on VOD in March in the US. Brendan works solo shifts in the quietest toll booth in Wales, hiding from a criminal past where nobody would ever look. When he finally gets rumbled, word of his whereabouts gets out and his enemies head west to find him for revenge. Meanwhile, local traffic cop Catrin's investigation into a simple robbery finds her heading over to the booth at exactly the wrong time… Starring Michael Smiley, with Annes Elwy, Iwan Rheon, Gary Beadle, Steve Oram, Evelyn Mok, and Darren Evans. This looks like one amusing and crazy crime thriller with some good twists and turns.
"You have no idea who you partnered with." Tell that to the video game studio… Sony Pictures has revealed another new official trailer, the third one so far, for the Uncharted movie. It's based on the popular video game series about an adventurer named Nathan Drake, and it looks as bad as every other video game movie before it. Tom Holland stars as Drake, who goes on his first treasure hunting adventure with wisecracking partner Victor "Sully" Sullivan, played by Mark Wahlberg. The main cast also includes Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas. We've posted two other full trailers for this already, but none of them are looking any better. Maybe it will be so bad that it's actually fun? But it also seems like they totally forgot about what makes the game great and how that could translate to the big screen and made something else.
"I'm still plenty angry, you understand, but the difference is that I am now able to strike back." Super LTD has revealed the first teaser trailer for this film known as Ted K, from filmmaker Tony Stone. This already premiered last year at the 2021 Berlin Film Festival, and it played at Camerimage and the Stockholm Film Festival. Sharlto Copley stars as the infamous madman. The film is an exploration of Ted Kaczynksi's life in Lincoln, Montana in the years leading up to his arrest as The Unabomber. Based on Kaczynski's diaries and writings, the film is a kaleidoscopic true crime journey into the life of one of America's most complex and eccentric killers. It features a tour-de-force performance by Copley who portrays the complexity of this unique outsider, raging at the forces of both the inescapable technological society that plagues him and his own inner demons. Also with Drew Powell, Travis W Bruyer, and Wayne Pyle. This is a gnarly teaser.
"Think like you're lost in the forest." Greenwich Entertainment has revealed an official US trailer for the documentary film titled simply Mau, the feature-length documentary about design visionary Bruce Mau. This originally premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival last year, and it also stopped by CPH:DOX and Hot Docs. Filmed over a period of approximately three years and directed by Benji and Jono Bergmann, the documentary looks back at Mau's life to date and his career. It tells the story of his humble beginnings in Canada to his sharp rise to fame in the design space. "From working with the greatest living architects (Rem Koolhaas & Frank Gehry) on books and museums to rebranding nations such as Guatemala and Denmark. Bruce Mau is a pioneer of transformation design and the belief that design can be used to create positive change in our world." I want to see this just to hear all the crazy stories about him. Sounds like a funny guy.
"That old man said… you died fifty years ago." Yellow Veil Pictures has released an official trailer for The Long Walk, a slow born indie sci-fi horror film from the country of Laos (see Google Maps). This initially premiered at the 2019 Venice Film Festival playing in the "Venice Days" sidebar, and it also played at TIFF and Fantastic Fest and the Sitges Film Festival a few years ago. Made by a Laotian filmmaker named Mattie Do, this film has earned some rave reviews. She is the first and only woman filmmaker from Laos, and the only filmmaker of the country to work in the horror and fantastic genres. An old Laotian hermit discovers the ghost of a road accident victim can transport him back in time 50 years to the moment of his mother's painful death. Starring Yannawoutthi Chanthalungsy, Vilouna Phetmany, Por Silatsa, Noutnapha Soydara, Chanthamone Inoudome, and Vithaya Sombath. This is a very cool film, with some original ideas that we've never really seen before. If this kind of quiet horror is your jam, you really need to see this.
"This rig is leaking gas! We have to get out of here!" Magnolia Pictures has unveiled an official US trailer for the Norwegian disaster movie The Burning Sea, the latest in Norway's disaster series. An oil platform dramatically goes down on the Norwegian coast, and researchers try to find out what happened when they realize this is just the start of something even more serious - an environmental apocalypse. The Burning Sea is the latest disaster epic from the team behind The Quake and The Wave. As rigs are evacuated, submarine operator Sofia's companion Stian becomes trapped in the depths of the sea, and Sofia must dive in to rescue him. The movie stars Kristine Kujath Thorp, Henrik Bjelland, and Rolf Kristian Larsen. This looks crazy! And I'm glad the Norwegians keep making epic movies like this. Whatever is going on under the sea looks freaky indeed. I hope this movie wakes up people about how bad oil is! We need to stop drilling for it.
"You will all pay for the sins made by our elders." LD Entertainment has unveiled an official trailer for the film The Cursed, which is the new titled for the horror thriller called Eight for Silver. This premiered at last year's Sundance Film Festival under the Eight for Silver titled, received mixed reviews with some bits of praise. In rural 19th-century France, a mysterious, possibly supernatural menace threatens a small village. John McBride, a pathologist, comes to town to investigate -- and exorcise some of his own demons in the process. This is a werewolf film, which isn't so much of a spoiler, because it's a "reimagining" meaning the mythology is not what you're expecting. You'll have to watch to find out what that means! Starring Boyd Holbrook, with Kelly Reilly, Alistair Petrie, Roxane Duran, Nigel Betts, Stuart Bowman, Simon Kunz, and Amelia Crouch. I caught this last year and it's solid, not so amazing, but good for horror fans.
"You need to find your tribe." Picturehouse has unveiled an official UK trailer for True Things, an indie drama that first premiered at the 2021 Venice Film Festival last fall. It also played at the Toronto, London, and Stockholm Film Festivals last year. The film follows a young woman living on the fringes of society who becomes intoxicated by a stranger who overwhelms her quiet life. She lives in a small town on the water in the UK, and is lonely and just wants to meet a nice man. But she ends up falling for a complete asshole, and the film is supposed to be a lesson in how this can happen and how women need to watch out. But it's just painful. Ruth Wilson stars with Tom Burke, Hayley Squires, Elizabeth Rider, Frank McCusker, and Ann Firbank. I saw this in Venice and did not like it much. But that's just my own take. Give it a look.
"Pinocchio is not just a puppet, he's a miracle!" Lionsgate has unveiled an official US trailer for an 3D CG animated movie called Pinocchio: A True Story, originally made in Russia by a Russian filmmaker. This is not the same as the upcoming Guillermo del Toro stop-motion animated Pinocchio movie that was also teased this week. It's the third new Pinocchio movie in the last few years, along with the Italian live-action version recently. This release will be available with an English-language voice cast, featuring Pauly Shore, Jon Heder, and Tom Kenny (of "SpongeBob" fame). Young Pinocchio runs away from his genius creator Jepetto accompanied by the horse Tibalt to see the world and joins the traveling circus run by the hustler Modjafocco. No surprise, this looks awful, with bad animation, a bad story, and bad voice work. Stay away.
This is the story of Lucy and Jane – two friends who have always been best friends. This is the story of two women who finally realize it's time to grow up and figure themselves out on their own. Am I OK? is a new buddy comedy made by actors / lovers / partners Stephanie Allynne & Tig Notaro, both making their feature directorial debut. In addition to making a film about friendship and how important that is, this film is meant as a guide for young women who are struggling to come to grips with a realization that they might be lesbian or bisexual or queer or whatever. The film is about a woman who, at age 32, realizes she has never dealt with the feelings deep inside her telling her she might not be straight. But instead of encountering hate or other trouble, Notaro & Allynne made a film that offers support and understanding. It's a compassionate comedy that will make you laugh and smile, and by the end you'll feel much better. No matter who you are.
