Josh Lucas in Mega Shark Thriller 'The Black Demon' Official Trailer

The Black Demon Trailer

"This is not just any shark, it's a curse." The Avenue has revealed a freaky trailer for The Black Demon, another epic mega shark movie gliding into waters near you soon. While we wait for the other megalodon movie, The Meg 2: The Trench, due out sometime in the summer, they're offering us this bait instead. Josh Lucas stars as the oil worker Paul Sturges, who goes to inspect a rig but finds it abandoned. Stuck on the rig, their idyllic family vacation turns into a nightmare when they then encounter a ferocious megalodon shark that will stop at nothing to protect its territory. This also stars Fernanda Urrejola and Julio Cesar Cedillo, and it was shot in the Dominican Republic. "He's going to keep getting his revenge until a sacrifice is made." An intriguing mix of supernatural horror + shark movie, this looks like it might be good. Dive in.

Official US Trailer for Cristian Mungiu's Latest 'R.M.N.' from Romania

R.M.N. Trailer

"To survive, you need to know one more thing: how to fight." IFC Films has revealed an official US trailer for the acclaimed indie drama titled R.M.N., the latest work from acclaimed, award-winning Romanian filmmaker Cristian Mungiu. This premiered in competition at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival last year, and we posted a trailer back then when it initially debuted. One of my least favorite of the fest. An analysis of the driving forces of human behavior when confronted with the unknown, of the way we perceive the other and how we relate to an unsettling future. The director explained the title last year: "RMN in English is NMR: Nuclear Magnetic Resonance – basically a brain investigation. Given how the world looks today, I feel we need one." The film stars Marin Grigore, Judith State, and Macrina Bârlădeanu. Described as a "gripping portrait of ethnic and economic resentments tearing at the fabric of a small mountain town." Definitely not for everyone, but fans of Romanian cinema should not miss this when it plays in the US soon.

Final Trailer for Vampire Comedy 'Renfield' with Nicholas Hoult + Cage

Renfield Trailer

"I am enough. I deserve happiness. And I take full charge of my life today." Bring on the fangs. Universal has debuted a second & final trailer for Renfield, the Dracula comedy coming to theaters this spring. The first trailer was great, this is even better. Nicholas Hoult stars as Renfield, the tortured aide to history's most narcissistic boss. Renfield is forced to procure his master's prey and do his every bidding, no matter how debased. After centuries of servitude, Renfield is ready to see if there's a life outside the shadow of The Prince of Darkness. If only he can figure out how to end his codependency. Ha! Nicolas Cage plays the Count, joined by Awkwafina, Ben Schwartz, Shohreh Aghdashloo, and Adrian Martinez. From the director of The Lego Batman Movie comes this comedy about what happens when Drac loses his "assistant." This looks like it's going to be a blast, great to see some fresh new ideas that actually turn out entertaining.

Action Thriller 'Hunt Club' Trailer with Mena Suvari & Casper Van Dien

Hunt Club Trailer

"They brought us here to hunt – us." Uncork'd Entertainment has revealed a trailer for an indie action thriller titled Hunt Club, from a British filmmaker named Elizabeth Blake-Thomas. This is being dumped on VOD / DVD in April if anyone is interested in watching anyway. A gripping story of male hunters who lure women to their island with the chance to win $100K in a hunt, only to discover they are the hunted. But this time they have messed with the wrong girls and discover women can be better hunters than men. The film features a gnarly B-movie cast: Mena Suvari, Maya Stojan, Casper Van Dien, Mickey Rourke, and Jessica Belkin. Rourke and Suvari previously co-starred in Tony Scott's Domino back in '05. "We're extremely stoked to be releasing this very hot tale of survival and revenge, with it’s exciting storyline and an incredibly gritty performance by Mena Suvari in the lead role," Uncork'd says. It just doesn't look any good.

Netflix's 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always' Movie Trailer

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always Trailer

"You've got this, good luck!" Netflix has revealed a full trailer for their upcoming epic Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: Once & Always movie, a spin-off from all the other Power Rangers TV series. This one lands on Netflix later in April this spring. "A mighty morphin reunion 30 years in the making," this one is a throwback to the old series from when it first debuted in the 1990s. In this new follow-up, the Rangers come face-to-face with a familiar threat from the past. In the midst of a global crisis, they are called on once again to be the heroes the world needs. The full cast includes Richard Steven Horvitz, Johnny Yong Bosch, David Yost, Barbara Goodson, Catherine Sutherland, Karan Ashley, Steve Cardenas, Charlie Kersh, and Walter Jones as The Black Ranger. "Once a Ranger, Always a Ranger" is the motto. This looks like a classic throwback in good and bad ways, as cheesy as the original show yet with all the vibrant charm.

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.

Nawell Madani Leads French Crime Series 'Thicker Than Water' Trailer

Thicker Than Water Trailer

"We're not playing gangsters. We play it smart." Netflix has revealed the official trailer for a new French crime thriller series titled Thicker Than Water, arriving for streaming in early April. A journalist's life devolves into chaos when she shields her brother from the law, inadvertently entangling her family in a drug lord's merciless scheme. Belgian humorist Nawell Madani (C'est tout pour moi, Stuck Together) leads this dramatic crime series, alongside Djebril Zonga and Paola Locatelli. The title, which is a reference to the phrase "blood is thicker than water," defines this series that's about the importance of sisterhood & family. The cast includes Kahina Carina, Carima Amarouche, Aïda Guechoud, Mayane Sarah El Baze, Paul Hamy, Vincent Rottiers, and Walid Afkir. This seems like a legit series, though a bit campy with the drug plot. It has a good setup and a clever cast bringing levity to this drug lord story. Take a look below.

Must Watch: Oliver Stone's 'Nuclear Now' Climate Change Doc Trailer

Nuclear Now Doc Trailer

"The very thing that we fear… is what may save us." Yes, indeed, listen to Oliver. He did his research on this, he knows what's good. Abramorama has unveiled the official trailer for a documentary titled Nuclear Now, the latest feature made by prolific director Oliver Stone. This premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival last year, where I first saw it and wrote a glowing review of it. A vitally important film for our times, this is more of Stone's urgent climate change documentary than anything else. He addresses the problems, the propaganda, the people, and dives into the most appropriate solution for the moment - atomic energy, or nuclear power. Instead of shutting down and demolishing nuclear plants, we should be building more because yes - nuclear power is the only immediate solution to turn off all of the goal & gas plants while still producing enough power to maintain the worldwide demand for electricity. This is an outstanding film that comprehensively covers this topic, answers questions, and might just make a difference in saving the world.

J.K. Simmons & Frank Grillo in Crime Film 'One Day as a Lion' Trailer

One Day as a Lion Trailer

"I'll find Jackie… This time you gotta whack him." Lionsgate has revealed an official trailer for an indie crime thriller titled One Day as a Lion, arriving to watch in early April (in theaters and on VOD). It's the latest collaboration between filmmaker John Swab and actor Frank Grillo, following Body Brokers, Ida Red, and Little Dixie before. Jackie Powers, played by Scott Caan, will stop at nothing to prevent his son from following him into a life of crime. With his mob employer in pursuit, a chance encounter at a roadside diner with a young woman charts a new path. The script is written by Scott Caan, who also stars in it. This crime comedy is a witty homage to Tarantino and the Coen Bros. Also featuring J.K. Simmons, Frank Grillo, Virginia Madsen, Marianne Rendón, George Carroll, and Billy Blair. The fun cast makes this look better than it should, otherwise seems like a clunky jumble of characters gettin' into plenty of dumb trouble.

Trailer for Doc Series 'Redefined: J.R. Smith' About Golf & Basketball

Redefined: J.R. Smith Trailer

"I'm not doing this to prove nobody else wrong… I'm really proving to myself that I can do it." Amazon has unveiled an official trailer for a compelling new sports documentary series titled Redefined: J.R. Smith, made by filmmaker Philip Knowlton. The four-part series coming to Prime Video soon is about an athlete shifting from one sport to another. J.R. Smith, the two-time NBA champion (for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers) who's gotten "a lot of ink"" for changing his focus from basketball to golf, is the subject of this doc. Redefined: J.R. Smith will follow the retired player as he pursues a college education and new athletic passion – golf – at North Carolina A&T. At the age of 19, after being selected in the NBA draft, finds himself without a team to call his own and is looking to redefine his future. The series comes from LeBron James and Maverick Carter as executive producers at their Uninterrupted banner. This looks like an inspiring story about following your passions & fighting for your place, no matter who you are. Check it out.

Official Trailer for 'Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields' Biopic Documentary

Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields Trailer

"The world tells you how to be… But how do you become who you really are?" ABC News Studios + Hulu have revealed an official trailer for a documentary film titled Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields, which first premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It'll be available on Hulu to watch in April. The doc is a galvanizing look at actor, model and icon Brooke Shields as she transforms from a hyper-sexualized young girl (starting at age 12 in the film Pretty Baby) to a woman discovering her power. Holding a mirror up to a society that objectifies women and girls, her story shows the perils and triumphs of gaining agency in a hostile world. Produced by Matador Content and BedBy8 for ABC News Studios. The film marks the debut project from BedBy8, the newly formed production company created by Ali Wentworth, George Stephanopoulos and partner Alyssa Mastromonaco. This looks like a fascinating double feature with The Most Beautiful Boy in the World, about how our beauty-obsessed culture really is super toxic and damaging.

Broken Lizard's New Hunchback Spoof Comedy 'Quasi' Official Trailer

Quasi Trailer

"In a tale of love, betrayal, and scandal – everyone plays a part, or two." Hulu has revealed the official trailer for Quasi, the latest Broken Lizard comedy created by all five members of the troupe. Produced by Searchlight Pictures, they're dropping this direct to streaming, skipping theaters - but it should be good to grab a bunch of friends for a fun night to watch anyway. Quasi is the story of a hapless hunchback who only yearns for love, who then finds himself in the middle of a murderous feud between the Pope and the King of France when each orders the hunchback to kill the other. The satirical take on Victor Hugo's classic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame will debut on their usual stoner day, 4/20, next month. The film stars BL's: Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme (as Quasi), Jay Chandrasekhar, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske, along with Adrianne Palicki and Michael Yurchak. This looks like the kind of wacky, absurd, over-the-top humor from Broken Lizard we haven't seen in a long time. Looks a bit better than their last few movies.
