If you’re going to make a movie that’s basically just two people in the entire cast, it might as well be two of the most charismatic and attractive people on the planet.
Trailer teasers seem to be the next big thing for large-budget blockbusters these days, giving us a taste of a taste of the movie we’ll be buying tickets for months from now. Today brings us the trailer teaser (or trailer trailer) for the new original sci-fi Passengers, starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. Written by Prometheus scribe Jon Spaihts and helmed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Passengers is set on a luxury spaceship housing 5,000 passengers all bound for a colony 120 years’ journey away. For everyone to remain alive until they get to their new home, all of the people onboard are put into hypersleep so that their bodies remain in stasis. Mysteriously, two of these passengers are awakened by the ship 90 years before the end of the trip, they first fall for each other and then learn that they’re the only people who can save the crew from a deadly malfunction.
Don’t say it, don’t think it. Doug Jones is coming to get you. STX Entertainment has released the new trailer for The Bye Bye Man, from the producers of Oculus and The Strangers.
There are a lot of movies about adults searching for their birth parents, but those are often warm, heart-touching stories about love and reunion. In ‘Bastards,’ that search is more about two sons digging up their mother’s sexual past.
Remember the documentary Super Size Me, that made you never want to eat anything ever again? Well, Morgan Spurlock is back, baby, and now he’s planning on making you afraid of a whole bunch of other things. The trailer for his new documentary Rats is edited like a horror movie, showcasing terrifying images of the havoc rats wreak on major cities across the world, and the preventative measures humans have taken to try to stop them. If you like rats, maybe don’t watch this trailer. If you don’t like rats... well, you probably shouldn’t watch it either.
Horror has never been an unpopular genre, and some would even argue that arthouse horror is greater than it ever has been. But none even come close to the terror conjured by Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of Stephen King’s chilling The Shining, a film so meticulous and mysterious in its composition it has its own conspiracy theory documentary. If you’re a fan of The Shining and you also happen to live across the pond, or will be vacationing there within the next month, good news: the BFI is planning a theatrical re-release of the film for one night only this Halloween, and they just posted the new trailer.
That headline is slightly misleading: Most people aren’t familiar with the name Christine Chubbuck, the subject of the new film from Afterschool and Simon Killer director Antonio Campos. But to her former co-workers, certain morbid corners of the internet, and a handful of cinema fans, her name is synonymous with one of the most tragic and harrowing events in television history. That event is teased to a chilling degree in the first trailer for Christine, starring an absolutely compelling Rebecca Hall in the title role.
Just when you thought it was safe to buy dolls again…Nope. Here’s the first trailer for Annabelle 2, which, as the title suggests, is a sequel to last year’s relatively successful James Wan-produced spinoff of The Conjuring, featuring that damn creepy doll and her creepy antics. This time, she’s terrorizing a doll-maker, and that seems totally fair, to be honest, since he’s responsible for the creation of her kind and their endless suffering at the hands of ruthless children.
Fresh from its premiere at the Venice Film Festival (where it won the second place trophy) and screenings at the Toronto Film Festival, here is the trailer for Nocturnal Animals, the newest from from fashion designer and director Tom Ford. His follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2009 film A Single Man features an excellent cast, with Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal as the two leads. Adams plays an art gallery owner who receives a manuscript from her ex-husband (Gyllenhaal) in which the character clearly inspired by her (and played by Isla Fisher in films from the book-within-the-film) meets a horrible fate.
