'Sunflowers' Doc Trailer Ponders the Mystery of Van Gogh's Paintings

Sunflowers Trailer

"A revealing exhibition of triumph and tragedy." Exhibition On Screen has unveiled an official trailer for their latest art documentary offering, titled simply Sunflowers. The Exhibition On Screen series is about taking us closer into the art world and sharing new details with everyone watching these films in cinemas, without having to go a museum or gallery. This time they focus on the Sunflowers paitnings by the iconic Vincent Van Gogh. Director David Bickerstaff explains: "This cinematic journey brought the sunflowers series into sharper focus for me and revealed a new insight to the tragic circumstances that followed. […] Drama, struggle and a passion for life can be seen in every dash of paint in the Sunflower paintings. In my opinion, each one shows an honesty and a virtuosity that speaks to the enduring power of an extraordinary artist, who lived an extraordinary life." It features five of the famous Arles Sunflowers from collections in London, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Munich and Amsterdam. This looks mesmerizing and incredibly fascinating.

Crazy Badass 'Total Car-Nage' Behind-the-Scenes Featurette for 'F9'

Total Car-Nage Featurette

"Who drives like a bat out of hell?" "Torreto." Whoa! This is badass, I will admit. As dumb as these movies are, it is still cool that they do so many practical stunts, and shoot car scenes for real - including crashes and explosions and more. Universal has debuted a "Total Car-Nage" behind-the-scenes featurette for Fast & Furious 9, aka F9, the latest installment in the never-ending "Fast Saga". "The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tbilisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before." Featuring Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, and Charlize Theron. We've posted two official trailers for this, including a new one last month, and they're moving ahead with the final June 25 opening. Get ready for "car-nage" in theaters this summer.

New Trailer for George A. Romero's 70s Film 'The Amusement Park'

The Amusement Park Trailer

"There's nothing outside!" "I'm going outside anyway…" Shudder has unveiled a killer trailer for the long lost George A. Romero film titled The Amusement Park, which is available for streaming this June on the streaming horror channel. This was initially filmed in 1973, but was never released or finished until now. "Though not in the horror genre it is George's most terrifying film," producer Suzanne Desrocher-Romero has said. "It has Romero's unique footprint all over it." An elderly gentleman goes for what he assumes will be an ordinary day at the amusement park, only to find himself in the middle of a hellish nightmare instead. It's described as "an allegory about the realities of growing old," which is a bit amusing considering Romero made this while in his thirties, some 44 years before he would pass away. This new 4K digital restoration was commissioned by the George A. Romero Foundation and carried out by IndieCollect. Starring Lincoln Maazel. This is a freaky trailer, this definitely looks like a nightmare with some kooky aspects. I'm curious.

"There's a fine line between poverty and prosperity. All I see is the forgotten…" Vertical Entertainment has debuted an official trailer for Feral State, a gritty crime thriller set in Florida. "Tucked far away from the white sandy beaches and amusement parks is a Florida that few outsiders ever see. Nestled alongside the gator infested swamps and rundown trailer parks lives a charismatic grifter and self-proclaimed 'father of the forgotten' named Mack Monroe." A small misfit gang of runaways and orphans are taken in by a dark and charismatic father figure who together wreak havoc throughout swamps and the trailer parks of central Florida. On their tail is Detective Ellis, played by AnnaLynne McCord. A young new arrival in their gang causes everything to start to fall apart. The cast includes Ronnie Gene Blevins as Mack, with Octavio Pisano, Veronica Burgess, Donnell Siler, Kacey Fisher, & Jasmine Tamposi. This is worth a look.

In a rush to complete an overdue screenplay, a screenwriter's past explodes into the present and his world begins to unravel… When he meets a neighbor from down the hall, everything begins to spin out of control, and he struggles to hold onto hope. Starring Ry Barrett and Joanna Saul, with Suzy Giannakopoulos.

A Quiet Place: Part II Trailer

"There are people out there… People worth saving." Paramount Pictures has debuted one final new 2021 trailer for A Quiet Place: Part II, the sequel to John Krasinski & Emily Blunt's sci-fi monster thriller A Quiet Place from 2018. It was originally supposed to open last March, and after numerous delays, they've finally reset the opening for this May.

This a fantastic final trailer, and really really makes me want to go see this in theaters. Looks thrilling as hell! I'm so there.

Gina Rodriguez Tries to Survive in Post-Apocalyptic 'Awake' Trailer

Awake Trailer

"Our survival depends on her. Let's get to work." Netflix unveiled the official trailer for a post-apocalyptic survival thriller titled Awake, made by Canadian director Mark Raso. This will debut streaming on Netflix early next month. Chaos ensues after a global event wipes out all electronics and takes away humankind’s ability to sleep. But Jill, an ex-soldier with a troubled past, may hold the key to a cure in the form of her own daughter. This setup mashes up a few sci-fi concepts - kind of like Bird Box meets Children of Men, with humanity going crazy because they can't sleep, but one young girl can. Gina Rodriguez stars, with Ariana Greenblatt, Frances Fisher, Shamier Anderson, Finn Jones, Lucius Hoyos, Gil Bellows, Barry Pepper and Jennifer Jason Leigh. This looks like it's packed with all the usual apocalyptic movie tropes - aggressive military, crazy people everywhere. Looks entertaining, but not that smart. Survive the madness.

Official Trailer for Quarantine Zoom Comedy 'Untitled Horror Movie'

Untitled Horror Movie Trailer

"I didn't film that!" Another webcam horror! (Yet) Another Distribution Company (that's their name) has released an official trailer for an indie horror film called Untitled Horror Movie - yep, that's the real title for this, too. Also can be abbreviated as UHM. A supernatural comedy about making a horror movie. When six actors learn their TV show is about to be canceled, they decide to make their own film, unintentionally summoning a spirit with an affinity for violence. Untitled Horror Movie is another follow-up in the make-a-horror-film-over-Zoom craze (see: Host), at first mocking it, then becoming seriously scary as well. Or so it seems. The big ensemble cast features: Luke Baines, Darren Barnet, Tim Granaderos, Claire Holt, Katherine McNamara, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Kal Penn, Aisha Tyler, Kevin Daniels, Lesly Kahn and Sohm Kapila. It looks much funnier than it does scary, for better or worse. Check it out below.

Trailer for Doc Film 'Mosley: It's Complicated' About FIA's Max Mosley

Mosley: It's Complicated Trailer

"Life is a battle… and I generally only pick the fights I can win." Flat-Out Films has released the official trailer for a biopic documentary titled Mosley: It's Complicated, chronicling the life and times of former FIA president Max Mosley, who was the head of F1's governing body from 1993 to 2005. Over fifty years, Mosley achieved great things, making the family name well respected, until a hidden camera from a BDSM "party" exposed his colorful sex life in the British tabloids. Some colleagues and friends turned against him. Most public figures would have hidden away, but not Max, who argued his personal affairs are nobody else's business. He sued the News of the World, and won, and was a driving force in the Leveson phone-hacking inquiry. He then went after the lawmakers to implement greater press regulation and data protection laws. Featuring appearances by Max Mosley, Bernie Ecclestone, Hugh Grant, and Gerhard Berger. This one seems primarily for F1 fans, but there should also be some fascinating life lessons in here for everyone to consider.
