Oona Chaplin Conjures a Nightmare in Chilling Horror 'Lullaby' Trailer

Lullaby Trailer

"She's strong… but she's not as strong as faith." Vertical Entertainment has released an official trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Lullaby, directed by the DP / filmmaker John R. Leonetti - who doesn't exactly have the most impressive filmography (e.g. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, The Butterfly Effect 2, Annabelle, Wolves at the Door). Landing in theaters in just a few weeks. A new mother who discovers a lullaby in an ancient book and soon regards the song as a blessing. But her world transforms into a nightmare when the lullaby brings forth the ancient demon Lilith — from the Hebrew phrase "Lilith-Abi" which translates to "Lilith, begone." Lullaby stars Oona Chaplin, with Rámon Rodríguez, Liane Balaban, Kira Guloien, and Moni Ogunsuyi. This looks like a mostly derivative, generic horror without anything new to offer us. I feel like some of these exact shots have been in other films before this. It still might have a few good scares?

Impressive Full Trailer for 'The Last of Us' Series with Pedro Pascal

The Last of Us Series Trailer

"You've come this far, then you know what's out there…" HBO has debuted a full-length official trailer for their highly anticipated post-apocalyptic survival series The Last of Us, based on the popular video game series. It's now set to start streaming in mid January just over a month from now. Joel and Ellie, a pair connected through the harshness of the world they live in, are forced to endure brutal circumstances and ruthless killers on a trek across post-pandemic America. This "get her to the right people" plot reminds me of Children of Men. This stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey as Joel and Elli, with Gabriel Luna, Nick Offerman, Merle Dandridge, Murray Bartlett, Jeffrey Pierce, Melanie Lynskey, and Anna Torv. Original game composer Gustavo Santaolalla is scoring, and Kantemir Balagov (of Beanpole) directs the pilot ep. Said to be the largest TV production in Canadian history. Still looks great! This is a fantastic trailer, with "Take On Me" somehow being effective. A video game adaptation that might turn out just right.

Watch: Animated African Fable Short Film - 'The Voice in the Hollow'

The Voice in the Hollow Short Film

"Cross through the flames, huntress." You've never seen any short film like this before. The Voice in the Hollow is an animated short film created by Miguel Ortega and Tran Ma. Described as "an African fable of sisterhood, envy and ancient evil", it tells the story of Ala and Coa from the Leopards tribe. When her sister outshines her once again, Coa meets a mysterious entity, the morning star and the bestower of gifts, that can grant her wish… It's animated and rendered with the Unreal Engine 5, though it has a stop-motion look and feel. At first glance I thought this was made with marionettes and miniature sets, but it's all CGI and looks incredible. The film features the voices of Janeth Makungo, Rosalie Akinyi, Goodluck Gabriel, and Kaitlyn O'Connell. It's a very dark tale with some seriously frightening imagery, but that's part of why this is a one-of-a-kind creation. I really dig the masks in this, everything about its visual style is stunning. Enjoy.

Toni Collette & Monica Bellucci in 'Mafia Mamma' Red Band Teaser

Mafia Mamma Teaser Trailer

"You can't run away from your destiny!" You must embrace the mafia. Ha! Bleecker Street has revealed a first look teaser trailer for the action comedy set in Italy titled Mafia Mamma, the latest film by director Catherine Hardwicke - who hasn't made a new feature since Miss Bala in 2018. This one is now set to drop in Spring 2023, and this first teaser is red band rated as it's packed with tons of foul language. Hardwicke’s new action-comedy, Mafia Mamma, starring Toni Collette and Monica Bellucci - a suburban American woman who inherits her grandfather's "Mafia empire," and guided by the Firm's trusted consigliere, defies everyone's expectations – including her own – as the new head of the family business. The cast also includes Alfonso Perugini, Giulio Corso, and Alessandro Bressanello. This looks hilarious! I don't think this kind of wacky concept would work as well without Toni Collette leading the way. Stay tuned for a full trailer.

Full Trailer for Bank Robbery Action Film 'Last Resort' Starring Jon Foo

Last Resort Trailer

"Don't try anything stupid, it's too dangerous!!" He's going in anyway, his family is in there. Saban Films + Well Go Ent. have revealed the official US trailer for a movie titled Last Resort, an action revenge thriller formerly known as Ultima Ratio. The film lands in theaters in January just after the New Year, if anyone is looking for some action to kick them in the ass in early January. Last Resort follows a former special forces soldier who becomes a one-man army when his wife and daughter are taken hostage during a bank robbery. It's a bit like John Wick but with a bank heist, and oddly some chemical weapon that he must also prevent from leaking while saving his family. Jon Foo (aka Jonathan Patrick Foo from Extraction, The Outsider, "Rush Hour" series) stars with Clayton Norcross, Julaluck Ismalone, Armin Parvin, and Angelina Ismalone. The plot in this looks painfully derivative but all the brutal action might be entertaining at least.

The Story of TV Psychic Miss Cleo in 'Call Me Miss Cleo' Doc Trailer

Call Me Miss Cleo Trailer

"Who is the real Miss Cleo?" HBO Max has unveiled an official trailer for a documentary film titled Call Me Miss Cleo, debuting on the streaming service starting in just a few weeks this fall. Known for her larger-than-life persona and memorable accent, the infamous "Miss Cleo", born Youree Dell Harris, garnered a nationwide cult following on the "Psychic Readers Network," a popular telephone hotline that later came under fire for its alleged deceptive practices. Featuring interviews with celebrities and those closest to the self-proclaimed voodoo priestess, the film explores the many layers behind a complicated and charismatic figure. Revisiting an era of corded phones and 1-900-numbers, Call Me Miss Cleo reveals the whole truth behind the ever-enigmatic woman on late night TV, only to abruptly disappear from public consciousness. “Miss Cleo was such an iconic figure to fans and believers nationwide, but her story behind the camera remained an enigma." Until now! Learn all about her story in this new doc out this December on HBO Max.

Fun Trailer for The Asylum's 'Avatar' Spoof Movie 'Battle for Pandora'

Battle for Pandora Trailer

"Do not evac!!" The Asylum has revealed their official trailer for a spoof movie called Battle for Pandora, arriving in theaters today. The Asylum is known for making incredibly cheap, hilariously bad knock offs of major Hollywood blockbusters, and they're still going strong even nowadays (they also made the Sharknado franchise). This time they're riffing on James Cameron's Avatar movies (with Avatar: The Way of Water in theaters in two weeks) with this one, which uses the "Pandora" planet and lots of blue-tinged footage. But everything else is about different. After a help signal from a research vessel makes it back to Earth, the U.S. Space Force sends a rescue ship to Saturn's moon Pandora. But when they try to land, they discover that it's inhabited by a highly evolved humanoid species. Starring Tom Sizemore, Kristos Andrews, and Mark Andrew Riketson. Yes, this looks as terrible as you're expecting, but at least with The Asylum that is the entire point. They mashed up Avatar with The Abyss in this. I won't rent it, but the trailer is fun to laugh at.

Watch: Clever Sci-Fi Short Film 'Black Hole' Starring Aaron Moorhead

Black Hole Short Film

"After a while, as it had eaten my cat, and eaten my friend, it too began to eat at me…" Have you wondered what it would be like if you were sucked into a black hole? Maybe we shouldn't wonder too much, it might just break our brains. This fantastic short film titled Black Hole is now available to watch online thanks to Dust featuring it on YouTube, after it first premiered at film festivals last year. When a miniature black hole shows up in a man's house, he must learn to deal with it. But as time passes, his obsession with the anomaly grows, and he begins to dance with danger as he utilizes it in his every day life. This super clever 7-minute short film is written & directed by Jamie Parslow, starring fellow filmmaker Aaron Moorhead (of The Endless, Synchronic, Something in the Dirt) as Eddie. Also with Leo Camacho and Alexa Cappiello. The writing in this is extra sharp, and it has such a cute little black hole in it. I want one, too! Or maybe I don't?

Special Comic-Con Preview from Marvel - 'The Legacy of Ant-Man'

The Legacy of Ant-Man Trailer

"Your reality… everything you're holding on to – I know how it ends." During the Brazil Comic-Con event today, Marvel revealed a brand new special preview for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania titled The Legacy of Ant-Man, looking back over the past two Ant-Man movies before this. This next sequel is set to open in theaters in February early next year, kicking off MCU's 2023 selection - watch the full trailer. Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne, along with Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne and Scott's daughter Cassie, go on a new adventure exploring the Quantum Realm. This sequel also reintroduces the big bad Marvel villain - Kang, played by Jonathan Majors. The cast also includes Paul Rudd back as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Kathryn Newton, and Randall Park. This is one of these legacy trailers that pretty much just goes back over all of Ant-Man's scenes in the MCU, and the footage at the end is all from the first trailer anyway. Still got a good feeling that Quantumania will be a kick ass trip.

First Look Trailer for Mangold's 'Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny'

Indiana Jones 5 Teaser

"I miss waking up every morning wondering what wonderful adventure the new day will bring to us…" "Those days have come and gone…" Lucasfilm has just revealed the first look trailer for Indiana Jones 5 from director James Mangold, now officially announced with the sequel's final title: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. Here we go!! Not so sure about that title, but I think there's much more to pull apart in the footage. They still haven't revealed any plot details yet. Only: the film will be set in 1969 in the middle of the Space Race, with Harrison Ford back as Indy now in the background. Meanwhile, Voller, a NASA member and ex-Nazi involved with the Moon-landing program, wants to rectify the world and make it into a better place as he sees fit. Along with Ford, it stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson, Toby Jones, Antonio Banderas, and John Rhys-Davies. This looks phenomenal!! I'm loving all the footage so far. I have a better feeling about this after the first trailer than I did with Crystal Skull. So many incredible shots in here!! Fire it up below.

Léa Seydoux in Mia Hansen-Løve's 'One Fine Morning' Official Trailer

One Fine Morning Trailer

"I'd have never thought that it was possible between us." Sony Pictures Classics has revealed an official US trailer for an acclaimed French drama titled One Fine Morning, the latest film from the talented director Mia Hansen-Løve (Father of My Children, Eden, Things to Come, Bergman Island). This first premiered at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, and it also screened at the Sydney, Telluride, Toronto, San Sebastian, and Zurich Film Festivals in the fall. With her father suffering from dementia, a young French woman lives with her eight-year-old daughter. While struggling to secure a decent nursing home, she runs into a friend who although being in a relationship, embarks on a passionate affair with her. Léa Seydoux stars as Sandra Kienzler, with Pascall Greggory, Melvil Poupard, Nicole Garcia, and Camille Leban Martins. This is much more intimate, low key film from Hansen-Løve, with less of a narrative and more of a look at this woman's life at this point and all the challenges she's going through. Good film, worth a watch.
