Full Trailer for Sci-Fi 'Biosphere' w/ Mark Duplass & Sterling K. Brown

Biosphere Trailer

"I'm going to go find a way to keep us alive. I just need you to believe." Believe in him, trust in him! And together you might just save the world. IFC Films has unveiled a full official trailer for Biosphere, an indie sci-fi comedy that first premiered at the 2022 Toronto Film Festival last year. Co-written by, produced by, and starring Mark Duplass, it's yet another Duplass Brothers production - cultivating an original idea and giving a first-time filmmaker a chance to create something unique. In the not-too-distant future, the last two men on earth must adapt and evolve to save humanity. Stuck in this little "biosphere", they have to figure out what is going on when their fish start dying. This looks unique and compelling, though I'm still not sure what the big hook is, why they're stuck in there. Either way, I'm really looking forward to catching up with it soon. Biosphere co-stars Mark Duplass & Sterling K. Brown. Cohabiting theaters this July - take a look.

Official Trailer for 'The Last Rider' Doc About the 1989 Tour de France

The Last Rider Trailer

"Everything that I dreamed of was taken away when I was shot." Roadside has unveiled an official trailer for a documentary film titled The Last Rider, from acclaimed doc filmmaker Alex Holmes. This premiered at the 2022 Telluride Film Festival last year, and is getting a proper release in theaters later in June. Timed with the start of this year's Tour de France, it's opening a few weeks before the race begins in July. The film tells of a remarkable sports story. Greg LeMond, who in 1986 became the first non-European professional cyclist to win the Tour de France, recovered from a near-fatal shooting during an off-season hunting trip, to win the 1989 Tour de France in Paris on the Champs-Élysées in dramatic style, winning by only 8 seconds, the closest ever margin of victory. Directed by Alex Holmes and featuring exclusive interviews with LeMond and his wife Kathy as well as, never before seen footage, The Last Rider is an exhilarating portrait of one of the greatest athletes of our time. From the looks of it, we really should be idolizing LeMond and his passion.

Official US Trailer for Funkadelic Friendship Film 'Amanda' from Italy

Amanda Trailer

"It just so happens that I'm looking for a best friend." Oscilloscope Labs in the US has revealed an official US trailer for an indie film from Italy titled Amanda, a wacky drama about a young woman who prefers to stay by herself at home. This first premiered at the 2022 Venice Film Festival last year, and it also played at the Toronto and Tromsø Film Festivals. It will be opening in July in a few art house theaters if anyone is curious about it. Amanda, age 24, lives mostly isolated and has never had any friends, even if it's the thing she wants the most. Amanda chooses her new mission to accomplish now - to convince her childhood friend to believe that they are still best friends. A playful, provocative feature debut from writer / director Carolina Cavalli. Benedetta Porcaroli stars as the titular Amanda, with a small Italian cast including Giovanna Mezzogiorno, Margherita Missoni, Michele Bravi, and Monica Nappo. This definitely looks kooky and clever, offering up some fresh commentary on Italian society. It's definitely worth a quick look at least.

Hilarious Arnold Action Figure Commercial for His New 'FUBAR' Series

Arnold Action Figure Trailer

"He's ready to risk it all to protect his family… and save the world!" Ha! Dang this is pretty funny. Netflix has posted an amusing throwback action figure commercial promo video for the FUBAR spy comedy action series. It just started streaming this past weekend (view here), and they're trying to build the buzz with some clever viral marketing stunts. Arnold Schwarzenegger's FUBAR is a global spy adventure - when a father & daughter learn that they’ve each secretly been working as CIA Operatives for years, they realize their entire relationship has been a lie and they truly don’t know one another at all. It's pretty much a True Lies sequel. FUBAR stars Arnold, along with Monica Barbaro, Milan Carter, Gabriel Luna, Fortune Feimster, Travis Van Winkle, Fabiana Udenio, Barbara Eve Harris, Aparna Brielle, Andy Buckley, and Jay Baruchel. I'm smiling at how much they pack into this 90 second video, with good jokes about Arnold being the Terminator, his old age, the title "FUBAR", and more. This actually does make me want to tune in.

Official Trailer for 'Hidden Strike' Starring John Cena & Jackie Chan

Hidden Strike Trailer

"I'm just taking back what they owe us…" XYZ Films has revealed an official trailer for Hidden Strike, an intense new action movie set in Iraq following a special ops team trying to escape safely, like so many other films being made right now. Originally called S.N.A.F.U. or Project X-traction, the Chinese production is set to launch sometime later this year. When an oil refinery in Iraq is attacked, Jackie Luo, a Chinese security professional, is tasked with keeping the company's employees safe. When Luo discovers that the attackers' intent is to steal the oil – he gets the help of Chris Van Horne, an American former Marine, and together they try to stop them and escape to the safety of the Green Zone. Starring John Cena, Jackie Chan, Pilou Asbæk, Amadeus Serafini, Minghao Hou, and Zhenwei Wang. This looks like Mad Max meets Rush Hour set in… Iraq? They're all out of ideas, but had to make another action flick anyway. Maybe it'll be fun?

"You used to think I was the funniest person in the world…" Variance Films has unveiled an official trailer for the indie comedy The Adults, which initially premiered at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival earlier in the year. It's also playing at the Tribeca Film Festival next in June before opening later in August. The second feature film from filmmaker Dustin Guy Defa after Person to Person, which also starred Michael Cera. The plan to make a trip back home as short as possible begins to unravel as Eric finds himself struggling with balancing the challenging relationship with his two sisters and his addiction to a local poker game. A film about not wanting to grow up. Berlinale describes it as "a shrewd study of the pitiless condition known as adulthood." Starring Michael Cera as Eric, with Hannah Gross, Sophia Lillis, Wavyy Jonez, Anoop Desai, Kyra Tantao, Kiah McKirnan, & Simon Kim. This looks like it has plenty of heart and humor.

French Animated Film 'Nina And The Hedgehog's Secret' Promo Trailer

Nina And The Hedgehog's Secret Trailer

"Nobody will stop me from saving him!" A festival promo trailer has premiered for an indie animated film made in France called Nina And The Hedgehog's Secret, also known as Nina et le Secret du Hérisson in French. It's screening in a few weeks at the Annecy Film Festival in France, hence why this new trailer is debuting just before its unveiling at the fest. The adorable animated feature is about a young girl on a rescue mission and her hedgehog friend who helps motivate her. Another reminder to discover the classic animated film Hedgehog in the Fog. Nina's life turned upside down since her father lost his job in a factory following embezzlement made by the foreman. With her friend, she embarks on a life-saving quest which leads to the discovery of a hidden treasure in the factory. With the voices of Guillaume Canet and Audrey Tautou. It looks charming and cute, but the voice performances and script seem pretty bad - from what it's this trailer.

New US Trailer for UK Series 'Somewhere Boy' About a Sheltered Teen

Somewhere Boy Trailer

"I need to see the man who did this me, ’cause I don't know what I'm doing." Hulu has revealed a new US trailer for a British series titled Somewhere Boy, which seems to be a fun riff on the more popular title Nowhere Boy. It already played on BBC last year in the UK, but it is only now coming to the US - available for streaming in early June on Hulu. Here's the intro to this one: Daniel F. Harris has lived inside almost his entire life. He's always believed the world was full of monsters – the monsters that took his mum. For nearly 20 years, he and his dad Steve have stayed in, listening to old records and watching movies that always had a happy ending – and Danny was happy too. But one day that life shatters in an instant, and Danny has to take his first tentative steps into the outside world. Suddenly he has to come to terms with a whole world he didn’t know existed. This stars Lewis Gribben as Danny, with Samuel Bottomley, Rory Keenan, Lisa McGrillis, Johann Myers, Samuel Mckenna, Jamie Michie, and Gethin Alderman. It earned some rave reviews in the UK, and it looks like a very strong original story about how harsh the real world can be…
