Final Trailer for Fincher's 'Love, Death + Robots Vol. 3' Sci-Fi Series

Love, Death + Robots Vol. 3 Trailer

"You can begin to feel your own existence… what you are, basically, is the fabric and structure of existence itself." This is the best trailer yet! Only 90 seconds and it's fantastic. Netflix has revealed one final trailer for their latest edition of the Love, Death + Robots for-adults-only animation series. This latest set of shorts is dubbed Volume 3 and it includes 9 segments, including one directed by David Fincher himself (the giant crab one). This new selection of shorts is now available to watch on Netflix as of May 20th! Buckle up and have fun. Terror, imagination and beauty combine in nine new episodes which stretch from uncovering an ancient evil to a comedic apocalypse, telling startling short stories of fantasy, horror and science-fiction with trademark wit and visual invention. The voice heard in this trailer is an excerpt from Alan Watts "Dream" speech (in full here). "If you awaken, from this illusion…" Maybe we don't want to wake from it…? I can't wait to watch every last one of these!! Such an awesome series. Let's hope they keep making more and more.

Fun US Trailer for Cheesy Sci-Fi 'Maika: The Girl from Another Galaxy'

Maika: The Girl from Another Galaxy Trailer

"A stranded alien girl who must find her lost friend." Well Go USA has revealed the official US trailer for a cheesy Vietnamese sci-fi kids movie titled Maika: The Girl from Another Galaxy, opening in theaters this June. This already premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, playing in the Kids section. After a meteor falls to earth, 8-year-old Hung meets an alien girl from the planet Maika, searching for her lost friend. The alien girl helps Hung make new friends and heal a broken heart. But danger lurks everywhere. Together, they go on an adventure to help Maika find a way home and escape from some local criminals. The fun film stars Phu Truong Lai, Diep Anh Chu, Tin Tin, Ngoc Tuong, and Kim Nha. I actually watched this during Sundance and it's enjoyable (my review), even if it is so cheesy and obvious, because there's a strange kind of charm to it. Definitely meant for kids but some adults might enjoy it, too.

Meet Charles Petrescu in Sci-Fi Buddy Comedy 'Brian & Charles' Trailer

Brian & Charles Trailer

"I want to go on an adventure. Everything is lovely." Time to meet your new best friend! Focus Features has revealed an official trailer for Brian and Charles, one of the most delightful and charming discoveries out of the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This extra quirky buddy comedy is pretty much a Taika Waititi-esque creation, but through the lens of filmmaker Jim Archer and comedian David Earl, who plays Brian. After a particularly harsh winter Brian goes into a deep depression; completely isolated and with no one to talk to, Brian does what any sane person would do when faced with such a situation. He builds a robot. It turns out Brian's best invention… is also his best friend. A friend named Charles Petrescu. David Earl co-stars with Chris Hayward as Charles, joined by Louise Brealey, Jamie Michie, Nina Sosanya, Lynn Hunter, and Cara Chase. This is adapted from their own short film that we featured on FS last fall - and it's one of the best feature adaptations of a short ever made. Highly recommend watching.

First Teaser Trailer for Dan Trachtenberg's New Predator Movie 'Prey'

Prey Trailer

20th Century Studios has unveiled the first 45-second teaser for Prey, the surprise new Predator movie from filmmaker Dan Trachtenberg (of 10 Cloverfield Lane previously). It tells an origin story of the Predator in the world of the Comanche Nation 300 years ago. Naru fights to protect her tribe against one of the first highly-evolved Predators to land on Earth. The filmmakers were committed to creating a film that provides an accurate portrayal of the Comanche and brings an authenticity that rings true to its Indigenous peoples. Producer Jhane Myers, also an acclaimed filmmaker, Sundance Fellow and member of the Comanche nation herself, is known for her attention and dedication to films surrounding the Comanche and Blackfeet nations and her passion for honoring the legacies of the Native communities. As a result, the film features a cast comprised almost entirely of Native and First Nation’s talent, including Amber Midthunder, newcomer Dakota Beavers, Stormee Kipp, Michelle Thrush, and Julian Black Antelope. Uh yeah, this looks good so far! I just wish we could see this on the big screen and not only on Hulu. Get your first look below.

First Teaser for Sci-Fi 'Monsters of California' Made by Tom DeLonge

Monsters of California Trailer

"Dad never thought I was crazy!" Cartel & To The Stars has revealed a teaser trailer for a mysterious sci-fi thriller project titled Monsters of California, arriving sometime later this year. This has a vintage look and feel, referencing the kind of low-budget sci-fi movies they don't make anymore. Marking the directorial debut of rocker Tom DeLonge (of Blink 182 and Angels & Airwaves), Monsters of California follows the teenager Dallas Edwards and his misfit friends as they attempt to unearth answers to a series of mysterious, paranormal events happening around Southern California. They soon begin to unravel the extraordinary secrets held within the deepest levels of the Government. The film stars Richard Kind, Casper Van Dien (Johnny Rico!!), Arianne Zucker, Camille Kostek, Gabrielle Haugh, Jack Samson, Jared Scott, and Jack Lancaster. This doesn't look half bad, but there's so much going on in this teaser it's a bit hard to make any sense of it. I hope the big reveal with the UFO isn't something too cheesy or obvious. Check it out.

First Teasers for Netflix's 'Resident Evil' Series Reboot - London 2036

Resident Evil Series Trailer

"Evil has evolved!" Netflix has unveiled the first teaser trailer for their new reboot of Resident Evil - a fresh series from long-time producers Constantin Film taking us on a journey to a different time & place. They do go back to Raccoon City at the start, but it's not the same as before - no one saw the movie last year. Set in 2036, Jade Wesker fights for survival in a world overrun by the blood-thirsty infected and mind-shattering creatures. In this new carnage, Jade is haunted by her past in New Raccoon City, by her father’s chilling connections to the sinister Umbrella Corporation but mostly by what happened to her sister. The cast features Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Ahad Raza Mir, Connor Gossatti, and Turlough Convery. Ohhh hell yes! This looks better than almost every other Resident Evil movie so far, with tons of crazy footage at the end of this teaser.

Anthony Hopkins in High-Tech Mystery Thriller 'Zero Contact' Trailer

Zero Contact Trailer

"I always expected great things of this world…" Lionsgate has debuted another new trailer for the mystery thriller, wacky sci-fi project called Zero Contact, described as one of the very first NFT movies. We already wrote about this film last year, as they tried to release it on an NFT viewing platform (I don't think anyone watched it). Zero Contact follows five characters all over the world, connected only by their devotion to the late founder and tech titan Finley Hart, played by Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins. Upon his death, five remote agents — including his son — are contacted by a mysterious A.I. entity to reactivate the initiative, which may enable time travel. As sinister events transpire at each of their homes, they must decide whether entering their passwords will save the world… or destroy it. The film stars Hopkins, Aleks Paunovic, Tuva Novotny, Rukiya Bernard, Veronica Ferres, Adrian Holmes, Lilly Krug, & Martin Stenmarck. This still looks as bad as it did last year, trying to take advantage of modern tech ideas in the worst of ways.

Universal Launches Dinotracker.com Viral Website for 'Jurassic World'

Dinotracker Viral Website

"Imagine if you lived in a world where dinosaurs were roaming wild? What would you do? And what would want to know to keep yourself safe?" Oh this is cool! Universal has launched a fun viral marketing website for Jurassic World: Dominion (in theaters June) called Dinotracker. By now everyone knows that the plot of Dominion involves dinosaurs fully on the loose worldwide (after the end of Fallen Kingdom) and living with humanity. But they need to be tracked! The site is run by the Department of Prehistoric Wildlife (or DPW) - "a global organization that publishes up-to-date reports on dinosaur encounters, user-submitted sightings, and vital information, to facilitate the co-existence of humans and dinosaurs on our planet." So far the website just features an interactive globe with sightings listed and videos included to show us where all these dinos are being found. The videos are all legit - everything looks believable and real, these feel authentic. And, considering it's been 29 years since Jurassic Park, the dino VFX look damn good.

Watch: Evolution Complete - 'Endling' A Sci-Fi Short Film About A.I.

Endling Sci-Fi Short Film

"Does the mystery of an irrational entity require unraveling?" What would our world be like if humans were replaced by advanced Artificial Intelligence beings? Endling imagines exactly that kind of upcoming future, following two beings taking the remains of the last human to be buried. They drive an impressive classic Corvette, which the human used to own. It's an intriguing, low key sci-fi film about A.I. in which they discuss the many flaws of humanity and how emotions rule us. Martin Challinor and Jasmin Hoinka star as the two A.I. beings. This isn't the best short you'll ever see, but it's somewhat creative and makes you think about our place on this planet. Will we ever evolve beyond the human condition? Only time will tell…
