Spanish Romance 'Through My Window: Across the Sea' Netflix Trailer

Through My Window: Across the Sea

"A bit of San Juan fun won't hurt anybody." Netflix has revealed the full official trailer for another Spanish romantic dramedy called Through My Window: Across the Sea, originally known as A Través del Mar. It's actually a sequel to the Spanish sultry romance called Through My Window from last year, about a connection between Ares and Raquel - two extremely attractive Spanish people. In this follow-up, Ares is studying medicine in Stockholm and Raquel follows her dream of becoming a writer while they maintain a long-distance relationship that has not been easy for either of them. Now the summer is finally here and the long-awaited reunion. Will the distance be a problem for their relationship? The film stars Julio Peña, Clara Galle, Natalia Azahara, Guillermo Lasheras, Emilia Lazo, Eric Masip, Hugo Arbués, and Andrea Chaparro. It's definitely extra cheesy, but does look passionate if anyone is into this kind of stuff.

Brooklyn 45 Trailer

"The ghosts of your past would like to have a word with you." Shudder has revealed an official trailer for an indie horror creation titled Brooklyn 45, the latest from indie genre filmmaker Ted Geoghegan. This premiered at the 2023 SXSW Film Festival, also playing at The Overlook Festival, and will be streaming on Shudder (as well as on AMC+) starting in June this summer. It's one of these original indie creations that deserves our attention and if you have the time, check it out at home. It's set in the 1970s and takes place entirely at a Brooklyn brownstone. Five military veterans, best friends since childhood, gather together to support their troubled host, and the metaphoric ghosts of their past become all-too-literal. The film stars Anne Ramsay, Ron E. Rains, Jeremy Holm, Larry Fessenden, Ezra Buzzington, and Kristina Klebe. This starts out rather nice and turns into something crazy & intense in the second half. Have a look.

Must Watch Official Trailer for 'Theater Camp' Mockumentary Comedy

Theater Camp Trailer

"These people are really weird." Searchlight Pictures has revealed their fun first official trailer for the indie comedy Theater Camp, a mockumentary in the same vein as Waiting for Guffman or Best in Show. This first premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and was a massive hit, one of the best of the fest, I loved it and raved about it in my own review as well. The acclaimed faux documentary film follows the eccentric staff of a rundown theater camp in upstate New York, as they band together with the beloved founder's bro-y son to keep the camp afloat, when she falls into a coma right before the summer session is set to begin. They attempt to put on a masterpiece to save their theater camp known as "AdirondACTS". The ensemble cast of this comedy includes Noah Galvin, Molly Gordon, Ben Platt, Jimmy Tatro, Patti Harrison, Nathan Lee Graham, Ayo Edebiri, Owen Thiele, and Alan Kim, with Amy Sedaris. Even if you're not a theater nerd (like everyone in this film), you'll still laugh your ass off at this film. I had such a great time with it, especially with an audience. Don't miss Theater Camp when it opens this summer.

The Evolution of Film Festivals - Back at the 76th Cannes Film Festival

76th Cannes Film Festival

Tonight in the lovely beach resort town of Cannes, France, the 76th Cannes Film Festival is kicking off with the world premiere screening of Maïwenn's Jeanne du Barry after the opening ceremony. This is my 13th year attending and covering Cannes, starting back in 2009, and I am always happy to return. I skipped the opening film because it's just not my jam, but I am excited to watch plenty more films over the next 11 days in France. I come to Cannes year after year, spending more than I have in my bank account to be here, because I am here for the films. For the love of cinema. For the spirit of discovery and for all the hours of watching and discussing new films with my friends and colleagues. This is why I always come back. Yes, it can be annoying and frustrating to deal with. Yes, it the festival has problems like EVERY festival does. But I come anyway and make the most of it. It makes me happy that we're ALL here together to celebrate cinema.

"Entire lives are being ruined because of her presumptions." Madman Films in Australia has unveiled the official trailer for an acclaimed German film titled The Teachers' Lounge, from filmmaker Ilker Çatak. This premiered at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, earning unexpectedly positive reviews. It still has no US release date set yet, but is expected to open in theaters in more countries around the world later in 2023. It's already playing in cinemas in Germany right now. When one of her students is suspected of theft, teacher Carla Nowak decides to get to the bottom of the matter. Caught between her ideals and the school system, the consequences of her own actions threaten to break her. This anxiety-laden, compelling psychological thriller is specifically about "the seismic repercussions that can come from the seemingly smallest of decisions." The film stars Leonie Benesch, Leonard Stettnisch, Eva Löbau, and Michael Klammer. This looks like a smart film about how society has been changing recently, and not in good ways.

Sexy, Short Teaser for Ira Sachs' 'Passages' Starring Franz Rogowski

Passages Trailer

"You know what I was doing last night?" Mubi has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Passages, the latest film from American filmmaker Ira Sachs. This premiered at both the 2023 Sundance & Berlin Film Festivals earlier this year, earning rave reviews from critics calling it one of the best of both fests. The film is about two men who've been together for fifteen years and what happens when one of them has an affair with a woman. It's a very open LGBTQ film about polyamory, but also about the shifting dynamics of relationships and how emotions and feelings and sexuality can change and evolve – and get a bit sticky. Starring Franz Rogowski as Tomas, Ben Whishaw as Martin, Adèle Exarchopoulos as Agathe, with Erwan Kepoa Falé, Arcadi Radeff, and Léa Boublil. Reviews states it's "unapologetically sexy and infinitely wise… examines the ever-evolving nature of attraction with both intelligence and a sense of humor." Oh my they're really selling this on all the sex. Both kinds! Only a 30-sex trailer but it'll make everyone feel hot and heavy.

This looks extraordinary! So many colors and whimsical sets and fantastical costumes. I definitely need to see more footage. I'm not excited by the Frankenstein side of it, but everything else looks delectable. Enjoy.
