Dark Teaser for Jacob Anderson's 'Interview with the Vampire' Series

Interview With the Vampire Trailer

"If you finally submit to your nature, you will be filled with all the life you could hold." Time to descend into the dark world of vampires once again. AMC has debuted a new 60-second promo teaser for Interview With the Vampire, their fresh new take on the iconic vampire book by Anne Rice. The gothic tale, which follows the love/hate relationship between two vampires, is about Louis de Pointe, Lestat De Lioncourt and Claudia's epic story of love, blood and the perils of immortality. Everyone remembers the iconic movie, Interview with the Vampire from 1994, because it starred Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst. This new series stars Sam Reid as Lestat, Jacob Anderson as Louis, Eric Bogosian, Chris Stack, Kalyne Coleman, plus Bailey Bass as Claudia, Assad Zaman, and John DiMaggio. It's clear from this trailer that Louis is being interviewed decades later and is recounting his early days, which is right from the book but it still makes this look compelling. At least Jacob Anderson's performance seems delectable. Have a bite.

Fun Trailers for Three 'Ivy + Bean' Movies About Young Best Friends

Ivy + Bean Trailer

"We're not playing, we're on a mission!" Netflix has revealed trailers for a set of three (!!!) movies called Ivy + Bean, about two young best friends on adventures. It's adapted from the beloved, best-selling book series of the same name by Annie Barrows and Sophie Blackall. Two unlikely friends, the loud and fearless Bean, and the thoughtful and quiet Ivy – they discover that an adventure can reveal that even seemingly different people can become the best of friends. "Each girl thinks the other one is weird. Each girl thinks she could never be friends with the other. But sometimes opposites can become the best of friends… because they're opposites!" All three movies will be released on the same day and feature back-to-back stories, based on the first three books in the series. They star Keslee Blalock as Ivy, and Madison Skye Validum as Bean, with Lidya Jewett, Garfield Wilson, Marci T. House, Jaycie Dotin, Innocent Ekakitie, Mia Swaminathan, Ava Marchfelder, and Nia Vardalos. Really for kids only but these do like amusing fun.

First Look Featurette for 'Samaritan' Film Starring Sylvester Stallone

Samaritan First Look

"There's many, many layers to this story. It's a hero movie that's a little more grounded in reality." As if we haven't heard that before. Amazon will be releasing this movie Samaritan streaming on Prime Video next week, in case you've already forgotten about it. This featurette includes Sly saying some very generic things about how exciting this gritty superhero action movie is. A young boy learns that a superhero who was thought to have gone missing after an epic battle twenty five years ago may in fact still be around, now laying low. Sylvester Stallone stars as "Mr. Smith", now working as a garbage truck man, who is actually the long lost superhero known as "Samaritan". As his city begins to fall apart, he must make a comeback to put a stop to all the violence and chaos. Also starring Javon "Wanna" Walton, Pilou Asbæk, Martin Starr, Dascha Polanco, Moises Arias, and Sophia Tatum. This does look better than expected, but it's hard to get excited about watching it streaming at home rather than in theaters. Hopefully it's entertaining.

Explosive Trailer for Epic Hong Kong Sci-Fi Action 'Warriors of Future'

Warriors of Future Trailer

"This is an unprecedented operation." Whoa!! There's a Hong Kong sci-fi action movie called Warriors of Future that has finally opened in theaters in China and Hong Kong this summer. It was being prepped for release in 2019, with an early trailer dropping years ago. But after all the pandemic delays and lockdowns, it's only being released now. Set in the year 2055, a meteorite brings an extraterrestrial to the Earth in the form of an alien vine that "purifies the planet but kills everything in its path." (Is this anti-climate change propaganda?) When powerful alien creatures threaten humanity, Cmmdr. Sing Lee's elite forces are almost wiped out, and the surviving soldier Tai Loi discovers an even bigger conspiracy. Starring Louis Koo, Sean Lau, Carina Lau, Philip Keung, Tse Kwan-ho, and Nick Cheung. This looks EXTRA epic, from a VFX supervisor making his directorial debut. It's even being marketed as the new "Gold Standard" in Asian VFX. Though the mech is stolen from Ghost in the Shell, the suits look like Iron Man, and the story looks a lot like China's Restart the Earth, also about an alien vine. Huh. That said, you still need to watch this epic trailer.

Full US Trailer for Anime 'Goodbye, Don Glees!' Coming to Theaters

Goodbye, Don Glees! Trailer

"Haven't you ever taken a path that wasn't laid out for you?" GKids has revealed an official US theatrical trailer for Goodbye, Don Glees!, a Japanese anime from Atsuko Ishizuka arriving in US theaters next month. The film opened in Japan in February and has been playing at international festivals this summer. Teen misfits Roma, Toto, and Drop call themselves the "Don Glees," an informal name for their backyard adventures. One day, when the trio gets blamed for a nearby forest fire, they set off into the woods to prove their innocence. As disaster strikes their expedition, tensions flare between the friends as they realize that growing up has taken them on wildly different paths in life. Ishizuka follows up her series A Place Further Than the Universe with her first original feature film. With luminescent animation and lush backdrops, Goodbye, Don Glees! is a tender coming-of-age about the fearlessness of being young and the bittersweet journey of self-discovery. The US release will include an English dub with the voices of Adam McArthur, Nick Wolfhard, Jonathan Leon. Thankfully they're also releasing the original Japanese version with it.

First Spanish Teaser Trailer for Albert Serra's Tahiti Film 'Pacifiction'

Pacifiction Teaser Trailer

Elástica Films in Spain has revealed a teaser for Pacifiction, the latest film from extravagant director Albert Serra. This premiered in Cannes to rave reviews and was regarded by many critics as one of the best films of the festival, though it definitely won't be for everyone. On the island of Tahiti in French Polynesia, a writer returns to her country after having triumphed in France with a novel. However, she is disoriented and in a creative crisis. Faced with the impossibility of writing new works, she decides to accept a simultaneous translation job together with an ambassador. A strange attraction begins between them, full of contrasts. Little by little she realizes the cynicism of international politics, with a latent threat of new nuclear tests. Her love affair with the ambassador will be affected by that conflict, and interest and romance will mix in a confusing and absorbing way. Starring Montse Triola, Benoît Magimel, Sergi López, Lluís Serrat, and Pahoa Mahagafanau. Reviews describe it as a "sensation: a film unlike any other this year." This isn't the best teaser as it is hard to make sense of the film's story, but I'm curious about the visuals nonetheless.

New US Trailer for 'Railway Children' Remake of a UK WWII Classic

The Railway Children Trailer

"I can't talk about it, but I'm on a secret mission." Blue Fox has debuted a new official US trailer for the film The Railway Children Return, which already opened in the UK back in July. It's now opening in the US in late September. It's a "sort of sequel" / remake of the 1970 British film The Railway Children, about three children who move with their mother to Yorkshire. Jenny Agutter returns to her role as Bobbie from the original and is joined by Sheridan Smith, Tom Courtenay, and John Bradley. This one also follows a group of children who are evacuated to a Yorkshire village during the Second World War (to keep them safe from bombings), where they encounter a young American soldier who, like them, is far away from home. The cast of children also includes Beau Gadsdon, Eden Hamilton, Zac Cudby, KJ Aikens, Austin Haynes. It's described as "enchanting, moving, and heart-warming adventure for a new generation." The US release has taken "Return" out of the UK title and is going with simply Railway Children, which works because most US audiences probably don't know the original film. Already a hit in UK cinemas this summer.

First Trailer for Jafar Panahi's 'No Bears' Film Premiering in Venice

No Bears Trailer

"Did you go to the border last night?" Celluloid Dreams has unveiled an official trailer for the latest Jafar Panahi film titled No Bears, which is premiering soon. Unfortunately Panahi was recently arrested by the Iranian government after he went to check on his friend, another filmmaker also imprisoned under dubious claims. No Bears is premiering at the Venice Film Festival, TIFF, and New York Film Festival back-to-back. "Panahi continues to push against the boundaries of the medium with his latest film, involving two parallel love stories and the dire consequences that can bubble up out of seemingly insignificant artistic pursuits." It's obvious from this trailer that the film also acts as meta commentary on his own situation, unable to cross the line. "He feels trapped, with no future, no freedom, and no job." The cast includes Panahi, Naser Hashemi, Vahid Mobaseri, Bakhtiyar Panjei, Mina Kavani, and Reza Heydari. Get your first look.

'This England' Teaser Featuring Kenneth Branagh as Boris Johnson

This England Teaser Trailer

"You have to reign him in." Who's ready to revisit the pandemic again?! Sky TV has revealed the first look teaser trailer for a new series titled This England, with that title being spoken in a line of dialogue at the end of the trailer. It was originally pitched with the title This Sceptred Isle, but was updated for release this fall. The series follows the events surrounding Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his government in the face of the first wave of the 2020 global pandemic. It's described as a "truly unique drama that combines Michael Winterbottom's talent for conveying powerful real-world stories with a stunning performance from Kenneth Branagh." Branagh stars as Boris, with a cast featuring Ophelia Lovibond as Carrie Symonds, Andrew Buchan as Matt Hancock, plus Tim Goodman, Alec Nicholls, James Corrigan, and Simon Paisley Day as Dominic Cummings. I was expecting this to be more of a spoof series like something from Armando Iannucci, I just hope it pokes fun at the funky UK PM because he's undeniably a kooky guy. Enjoy.

Britt Rentschler in Sonoma Party Comedy 'Pretty Problems' Trailer

Pretty Problems Trailer

"I thought she was joking when she said she invited you up here." IFC Films has revealed an official trailer for an indie comedy titled Pretty Problems, which originally premiered at this year's SXSW Film Festival in the spring. Jack and Lindsay are invited on a getaway trip with affluent strangers: down the rabbit hole, and into the most unhinged weekend of their lives. Can their relationship survive? This wacky, wild comedy takes a look at the difference between the "haves" and "have nots" on this party trip to a Sonoma Chateau. The film stars Britt Rentschler and Michael Tennant as Lindsay and Jack, with J.J. Nolan, Charlotte Ubben, Graham Outerbridge, Alex Klein, Clayton Froning, Katarina Hughes, Vanessa Chester, and Amy Maghera. This looks like it's trying to make fun of "pretty people" and all their crazy problems, but it also looks so ludicrous it may not even be fun? Should pair well with Bodies Bodies Bodies. Thoughts?

Second Trailer for Showtime's 'American Gigolo' with Jon Bernthal

American Gigolo Trailer

"Somebody set me up… It's not over!!" Showtime has revealed the second trailer for American Gigolo, a new streaming series remake of the 1980 film of the same name. The first trailer was quite impressive and totally sold me, this one adds to that buzz. This series stars the ultimate suave guy Jon Bernthal, taking on the very same role that was played by Richard Gere in the original film. Showtime's American Gigolo is a present-day reimagining of the iconic 1980 film. Julian Kaye has always been an object of desire, so much so that people are willing to destroy him in order to have him. Exonerated, after 15 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit, he now faces the challenge of picking up the pieces as the detective who put him behind bars tries to unravel the mystery that led to his wrongful incarceration. Also with Gretchen Mol, Gabriel LaBelle, Lizzie Brocheré, and Leland Orser. Yet another true crime series, this looks damn good so far.

Two Families at Odds in Dutch/Danish Horror 'Speak No Evil' Trailer

Speak No Evil Trailer

"No one's forcing you to stay, but I really hope you do." Shudder & IFC have revealed an official trailer for a crazy new indie horror film from Denmark titled Speak No Evil, which initially premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section. A Danish family visits a Dutch family they met on a holiday. What was supposed to be an idyllic weekend slowly starts unraveling as the Danes try to stay polite in the face of unpleasantness. What exactly happens? You have to watch and find out. One description says "their lives [are] altered in unexpected, deeply horrifying way." Reviews say it's "a frightening fable about the rise of complacency in the face of evil over the past decade." The mostly English-language film stars Morten Burian, Sidsel Siem Koch, Fedja Van Huêt, Karina Smulders, Liva Forsberg, Marius Damslev. This is a great trailer that doesn't give away much of the film but does setup the stakes and tease the horror.
