US Trailer for French Film 'Other People's Children' with Virginie Efira

Other People's Children Trailer

"Why is Rachel always here? I want her to leave." Music Box Films has finally revealed the full US trailer for an acclaimed French film titled Other People's Children, which most recently stopped by the 2023 Sundance Film Festival a few months ago. It first premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival last fall, and also played at TIFF before opening in France last September. Rachel is a happy, 40-ish-year-old teacher who loves her life, her friends, her job, and even her exes. She is exploring the idea of having a child but is not desperate to have one. Intrigued, ambivalent about it at times — an authentic example of the conundrum many women around her age face. Everything changes when she meets a new man with a wonderful 4-year-old daughter. Virginie Efira stars as Rachel, along with Roschdy Zem, Chiara Mastroianni, Callie Ferreira-Goncalves, Yamée Couture, Henri-Noël Tabary, Victor Lefebvre, as well as Sébastien Pouderoux. It "impressed audiences with its deeply moving and acutely observed portrait of one woman’s fluctuating feelings around maternal instincts and societal pressures." A truly lovely film, it's worth a watch.

Wacky Trailer for 'Holy S&*t' Film About a Guy Stuck in a Porta Potty

Holy Sh*t Trailer

"You can't say I didn't try." That's for sure! Cinedigm has revealed the official US trailer for a hilarious, disgusting, wacky new horror film titled Holy Shit, which is the get-your-attention English title for this one. It originally premiered last year under the German title Ach Du Scheisse (which translates closer to "Oh Shit!") and is finally getting a US debut this week. It sounds like a Jackass movie spinoff, but with a sick and twisted, er, twist, about a corrupt mayor getting some F'ed up revenge. Architect Frank suddenly wakes up from being unconsciousness, squashed into a porta-potty. But it gets worse: In order not to be blown up during the imminent demolition where this particular porta potty is located, Frank must make his way out of his blue grave in one hour. Starring Thomas Niehaus as Frank, Rodney Charles, Gedeon Burkhard and Olga von Luckwald. It won the Audience Award at the Hard:Line Film Festival, playing at a handful of other genre fests. This looks gnarly! And so gross! Get your friends together for a movie night to "enjoy".

Campy Horror from Thailand - 'Night of the Killer Bears' Official Trailer

Night of the Killer Bears Trailer

"This reunion is about to get deadly." 4Digital Media has revealed an official US trailer for a camp B-movie horror film titled Night of the Killer Bears, with the hilarious tagline "Ted meets Terrifier". This is for all the horror fans! A hilarious way to try and sell this. The Thai film originally opened over there last year under the name The World of Killing People, which is a bit too dark & violent for US audiences. It's a story of a group of five friends who go camping after not seeing each other for a long time. But an unthinkable event happens. When a friend disappears and his body is found, their camping trip starts to fall apart. But the killer is still lurking nearby… Starring Sananthachat Thanapatpisal (as Aim), Patchata Jan-Ngern (as Win), Khemanit Jamikorn (as Som), and Chanagun Apornsutinan (as Tony). This looks like it'd make a great double feature with the other campy Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey slasher, though this just looks like a deranged guy in a bear suit, nothing mythical in here. Still looks like a brutal slasher - enjoy.

Angolan Genre-Fluid Fantasia 'Tommy Guns' in US Theaters This April

Tommy Guns Trailer

"S'kwata! S'kwata! S'kwata!" Kino Lorber has revealed the official trailer for a film titled Tommy Guns, made by up-and-coming filmmaker Carlos Conceição. Winner of Best European Film Award at the 2022 Locarno Film Festival, Tommy Guns has elicited comparisons to the work of Claire Denis, Miguel Gomes, and even M. Night Shyamalan, and it announces a bold and exciting new voice in Portuguese and Angolan filmmaking. Described as an "ambitious and exquisitely crafted genre-fluid fantasia." In 1974, after years of civil war, the Portuguese and descendants fled the colony of Angola (in Central Africa) where independentist groups gradually claimed their territory back. A tribal girl discovers love and death when her path crosses that of a young Portuguese soldier. Meanwhile, another group of Portuguese soldiers is barracked inside an infinite wall from which they will have to escape once from the past comes out of the grave to claim its long-awaited justice. The film stars João Arrais, Anabela Moreira, Gustavo Sumpta, Leonor Silveira, and Miguel Amorim. Looks like an experimental creation more than anything that is really worth a watch.

Throwback Samurai Western 'Once Upon a Time in Ukraine' US Trailer

Once Upon a Time in Ukraine Trailer

"He has something that is not his to have. I want to take it back." Goldwyn Films has revealed an official US trailer for an indie action western from Ukraine titled Once Upon a Time in Ukraine, their local riff on Once Upon a Time in the West. This actually opened in Ukraine back in 2020 (with an alternate title The Inglorious Serfs), and never played outside of the country before this year. With the war going on there's more interest in Ukraine so they're finally giving it a chance to screen in the US, and it actually looks like some good B-movie fun. "What if Taras Shevchenko put down his pen and took a samurai sword into his hands?" A Ukrainian serf named Taras teams up with the samurai Akayo to get revenge for Akayo’s master and to free his beloved Maria from a slave master. Roman Lutskyi stars with Kateryna Sliusar, Gen Seto, Yakov Tkachenko, Andriy Malynovych, Andriy Borys, and Li Berlinskaya. This is certainly another homage, with connections to so many other genre films, but it seems like it'll be quite entertaining.

One Final Trailer for Korean Assassin Thriller 'Kill Boksoon' on Netflix

Kill Boksoon Trailer

"Killing is simple compared to raising a kid." Netflix has debuted one final trailer for the Korean assassin action thriller Kill Boksoon, out for streaming on Netflix worldwide at the end of March. The film recently premiered at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival. A single mother who is a renowned hired killer finds it difficult to achieve a balance between her personal and work life. Jeon Do-yeon stars as Gil Boksoon in this action thriller from director Sung-hyun Byun. At work, she's a renowned assassin. At home, she's a single mom to a teenage daughter. Killing? That's easy. It's parenting that's the hard part. As she tries to find her way out of the company, she ends up confronting more assassins. The cast includes Sul Kyung-gu, Kim Si-A, Esom, & Koo Kyo-hwan. I caught this already during the festival - it's solid but isn't so clean, with a rather drawn out runtime. Not as much action as you might be expecting either, but it has some cool characters she fights.

Acclaimed Japanese Drama 'Plan 75' Opens in US Theaters This April

Plan 75 Trailer

"We're all alone in life." KimStim has announced an official US release date for this indie from Japan titled Plan 75, marking the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Chie Hayakawa. It premiered in the Un Certain Regard section at last year's 2022 Cannes Film Festival, and stopped by Busan, Karlovy Vary, and Toronto. In a near dystopian future, Japan's government launches "Plan 75", a program encouraging the elderly to terminate their own lives to better handle its rapidly aging population. In Chie Hayakawa's remarkable and sensitive film, the lives of three ordinary citizens intersect in this new reality. "On the surface, the plan and its hawkers exude a kindness that serves as the film's chilling vision of bureaucratic indifference and our increasing loss of interconnectedness. However, Hayakawa's view is far from grim, as these characters soon learn to fully reckon with their own lives and what it truly means to live." The film stars Chieko Baishô and Hayato Isomura. One of the best reviews of this is written by Marya E. Gates, stating "that's where magic can be found." It's start to screen in limited US theaters in late April / early May. Take a look below.

Gnarly Trailer for Epic Historical 'Ninja vs. Shark' B-Movie from Japan

Ninja vs. Shark Movie Trailer

"It's ready to blow your mind!" Let! Them! Fight! A Japanese trailer is out for an epic B-movie battle called Ninja vs. Shark, made by filmmaker / stunt expert Koichi Sakamoto. If you can believe, it isn't an Asylum creation, but an actual live-action movie from Japan. Set in the Edo period, the film is about a village that hires a ninja warrior to help them fight off evil sharks that are attacking pearl divers. That's pretty much all you need to know, other than that it will likely by pretty gnarly. Kohshu Hirano of "Ultraman Z" will play Kotaro, and Shun Nishime of "Kamen Rider Ghost" will play Shinsuke, who fights with Kotaro. Yuichi Nakamura plays Sameshiro. In addition, the heroine Sayo is played by Julia Nagano, while Kikuma, a female ninja who loves Kotaro, is played by Kanon Miyahara. This trailer is a bloody, gory first look at the film, with a wacky English voiceover and fake scratches on the footage - a grindhouse offering from Japan.

A woman running her family's noodle restaurant receives an invite to join the fine-dining industry under the tutelage of an infamous chef.
