I hate boats. Okay, maybe hate is strong. I just don’t like them. I’m not necessarily phobic; I’ll get on one when I have to. But given the choice between land and sea, I pick land ten times out of ten. If man was meant to hang out in the ocean, he’d have a orange and green outfit and we’d all call each other Aquaman.
Back before he made Cop Car and landed the highly-coveted Spider-Man: Homecoming directing gig, Jon Watts made a little horror film called Clown. The twisted result of a collaboration between Watts and Christopher D. Ford, Clown tells the story of a man whose life is torturously taken over by a seemingly innocuous clown suit that turns out to be far more than a mere costume.
Bryan Cranston became a superstar as drug kingpin Walter White on AMC’s Breaking Bad. Clearly one of the hooks of this summer’s The Infiltrator is the way it flips Cranston’s image on its ear; this time he play the federal agent who goes undercover to take down notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar.
Kate Mara looks very confused in the new teaser trailer for ‘Morgan,’ and so am I.
As anyone who has watched a fair amount of movies can tell you, it’s a bad idea to mess with Anthony Hopkins. But that’s exactly what Nicholas Hoult does — however unwittingly — in the trailer for Collide, a new thriller that puts the Fury Road star back behind the wheel, this time to save the woman he loves, played by Felicity Jones. That’s perfectly fine, but the real attraction here is Ben Kingsley and whatever the hell he’s wearing.
There was a lot of initial skepticism about the idea of a Finding Nemo sequel. What are you gonna do? Have Nemo vanish again? How many times can a fish get lost?
The trend in trailers right now is to make things shorter. Teasers for trailers. Vines for teasers for trailers. Even full-length trailers on YouTube now often start with a five-second tease of the trailer you are about to watch five seconds later. It’s hard to conceive of ways content can be chopped any smaller, but studios keep finding ways.
The Blackout Experiments sounds like it could be a fictional horror film, but it’s not: Rich Fox’s new documentary takes you inside Blackout, an extreme, adults-only haunted house experience that boasts locations in New York and Los Angeles. As you can see in the official trailer, it’s more of a trauma house than a haunted house, and it’s definitely not for the faint of heart.
If you weren’t particularly sold by the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, then you may find the latest preview for Justin Lin’s sequel far more persuasive. It has a bit of everything: emotion, drama, epic intergalactic action, and Idris Elba as a menacing new villain unlike any the crew of the Enterprise has faced before. One thing is clear: this isn’t your average Trek mission.
A film about the world of improv comedy from Mike Birbiglia will be an instant must-see for some of you, but if you’re anything like me, the phrase “improv comedy” usually makes your eyes roll. If this trailer doesn’t sway you (and it should), then rest assured that Don’t Think Twice is an incredibly funny and surprisingly relatable comedy that might make you shed a tear or two.
