Watch This: 'Inside the Making of Dr. Strangelove' 45 Minute Video

Inside the Making of Dr. Strangelove Trailer

"From the unique perspective of one man, there is a lighter side to everything – even Armageddon." One of Stanley Kubrick's all-timer classics is the Cold War satire Dr. Strangelove, originally released in 1964. It was one of his big steps towards making his most famous films, delivered just before he would go on to make 2001, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and A Clockwork Orange. This vintage 45-minute long making of video has been floating around on the web for years, but we only stumbled across it recently and had to post it for everyone to watch. The video features plenty of stories and interviews with cast & crew and many other people involved in Kubrick's career as a filmmaker. Dr. Strangelove is based on Peter George's book "Red Alert" - an insane American general orders a bombing attack on the Soviet Union, triggering a path to nuclear holocaust that a war room full of politicians and generals frantically tries to stop. View in full below.

Official Trailer for Cult Horror Film 'Candy Land' Set at a Truck Stop

Candy Land Trailer

"We are here to cleanse ourselves of this world…" Quiver Distribution has revealed an official trailer for an intriguing revenge horror thriller titled Candy Land, from filmmaker John Swab. This first premiered at FrightFest, Grimmfest, and the Locarno Film Festival a few months ago, and will be out in the US on VOD starting in early January 2023. A seemingly naive and devout young woman ends up finding solace in the underground world of truck stop sex workers also known as "lot lizards." Under the watchful eye of their matriarch, and an enigmatic local lawman, Remy navigates between her strained belief system and the code to find her true calling in life. Will she make her way out? The film stars Olivia Luccardi, Sam Quartin, Eden Brolin, Owen Campbell, Virginia Rand, Guinevere Turner, and William Baldwin. Not too sure about this one, but it's made by a talented indie horror filmmaker so it might be worth a watch after all.

Park Ji-Min is Outstanding in Adoption Drama 'Return to Seoul' Trailer

Return to Seoul Trailer

"You have to evaluate the danger and jump in." Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled an official trailer for an indie film from France titled Return to Seoul, from up-and-coming Cambodian-French filmmaker Davy Chou. This first premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, then went on to win the Audience Award at the Hamptons Film Festival. It has been submitted by Cambodia as their official entry to the Best Internatioanl Film category at the Academy Awards this year. A 25-year-old French woman returns to Korea, the country she was born in before being adopted by a French couple, for the very first time. She decides to track down her biological parents, but her journey takes a surprising turn. The film spans years of time, following her as she struggles to deal with her identity, her parents, and her place in the world. Newcomer Park Ji-Min gives an unforgettable performance as a troubled young woman, with a Korean cast including Oh Kwang-Rok, Guka Han, and Kim Sun-Young. I saw this in Cannes and raved about it as one of my favorites of the festival this year, saying in my review "there has never been a film like this before." It's worth your time.

Frank Langella & Bobby Cannavale in Funny 'Angry Neighbors' Trailer

Angry Neighbors Trailer

"Hang in there, Harry, the end is near…" Lionsgate has revealed a funny official trailer for a dark comedy called Angry Neighbors, based on the book titled "Lapham Rising" written by Roger Rosenblatt. This is dropping on VOD later this week if anyone is curious. The film is about Harry March, a retired writer whose life starts to unravel when a multimillionaire begins building a mansion across from his quiet island home in the Hamptons. Up until now, he has lived peacefully with his talking dog, Hector (voiced by Cheech), a born-again Evangelical and unapologetic capitalist. To Harry, the gargantuan mansion represents the fetid and corrupt excess that has ruined modern civilization. Which means, quite simply, that this is war. Starring Frank Langella, Bobby Cannavale, Academy Award Nominee Stockard Channing, Ashley Benson, and Cheech Marin. This doesn't look bad, but it also doesn't look good either. The talking dog is the only thing that made me laugh in this, but I'm also ready to watch Langella tear down this McMansion. Let's go.

Bad Day for the Cut Trailer

"He's chasing me right now!" Well Go USA has re-released their official trailer for the US premiere of the Irish revenge thriller Bad Day for the Cut, which originally premiered years ago at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival playing in the Midnight section. Even with a small release back then it has been lost in time, but Well Go has officially released it on VOD and Blu-ray in the US for anyone interested in catching up with it. A middle-aged Irish farmer, who still lives at home with his mother, sets off on a mission of revenge when his mother is murdered. The indie film stars Nigel O'Neill, Susan Lynch, Józef Pawłowski, Stella McCusker, and Stuart Graham.

If this sounds good, check out the trailer.

Watch: Freaky 'The Callisto Protocol' Game Live-Action Promo Spot

The Callisto Protocol

"Every sound, every movement, is closing in." Time for a visit to Jupiter's moon Callisto in the year 2320. We're not a video game site and only post gaming content when it's worthwhile, and this live-action trailer for a sci-fi game is worth a look. The Callisto Protocol, made by Striking Distance Studios, is launching later this week on all platforms. They recently debuted a live-action promo trailer, featuring the actor Josh Duhamel starring as the main character Jacob Lee, an inmate of Black Iron Prison on the moon Callisto. Players must face terrifying creatures as they uncover the secrets of the United Jupiter Company. The game is a story-driven, single-player survival horror from the mind of Glen Schofield. This plays like a two minute sci-fi short film about discovering a prison where everyone is dead but coming back to life. Some freaky shit.

Full Trailer for Illumination's Animated 'The Super Mario Bros. Movie'

The Super Mario Bros. Movie Trailer

"Wahoo!!" Universal and Illumination Animation have debuted an amazing full-length trailer for the epic animated Super Mario Bros. Movie, arriving in theaters worldwide next April. This looks like quite an adventure that might live up to all the decades of Mario legacy. This movie is produced by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto with Illumination's CEO Chris Meledandri. A plumber named Mario travels through an underground labyrinth with his brother, Luigi, trying to save a captured princess. The movie features the voices of Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Princess Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser (of course), Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong, Fred Armisen as Cranky Kong, Kevin Michael Richardson as Kamek, and Sebastian Maniscalco as Spike. I am digging all the little details in here - from the Tanooki suit, to Luigi's goofiness, to the fire flower, to the Rainbow Road Mario Kart finale. All the nostalgia! But I still love it. This looks great, seriously, I'm impressed so far.

Mysterious Supernatural Oil Rig Thriller Series 'The Rig' Official Trailer

The Rig Trailer

"Nature isn't a balance, it's a war!" Amazon has revealed the official trailer for a new British mini-series titled The Rig, debuting for streaming on Prime Video in early January. The synopsis says it takes place on an oil rig in Scottish waters, and is Amazon's first series filmed entirely in Scotland. When the crew of the North Sea stationed Kinloch Bravo oil rig is due to return to the mainland, a mysterious fog rolls in and cuts off communication with the outside world. They will be driven to the limits of their endurance and loyalties and will be forced into a confrontation with forces that are beyond their imagination. The series stars Emily Hampshire as Rose, the oil company representative & scientist and a fresh face on the rig; Iain Glen as Magnus MacMillan, the leader of the crew and the offshore installation manager; with Martin Compston, Mark Bonnar, Rochenda Sandall, Owen Teale, Richard Pepple, Calvin Demba, & Emun Elliott. This is obviously an eco-thriller, but it also really does seem a bit like Steven King's The Mist – on an oil rig.

Jeff Fahey & Nathalie Cox in Island Romance Film 'One Year Off' Trailer

One Year Off Trailer

"What if we just start fresh here. This place is special." Lionsgate has revealed a trailer for a cheesy comedy called One Year Off, landing in February early next year on VOD. This film seems to be skipping theaters because eeesh it does not look good. Heartbroken Claire's wine-fueled post-breakup pity-party in London is crashed by her old friend Ben calling from New York City. He has inherited his unknown father's gorgeous beachfront house and club in the Caribbean island of Nevis, West Indies, and he wants her and the old crew to join him for a week while he absorbs this news. In love with the island, and thrilled to be back together again like the good old days, they unanimously decide to stay for year-one year off to reset their lives. This was filmed as a pandemic project on the island of Nevis (see Google Maps) as a strategy to bring money to the island during the COVID shutdowns in early 2021. Starring Jeff Fahey, Nathalie Cox, Chad Michael Collins, Antonio Fargas, and Ray Fearon. Looks pretty awful, nothing more than a bad tourism promo.
