After the film made the rounds at TIFF this year, with our own Mike Ryan calling it an "interesting bad movie," a new 'Maps to the Stars' trailer has debuted. It's pretty apparent from the footage that director David Cronenberg doesn't care too much for the glamorization of Hollywood. Still, without a clear Best Picture Oscar frontrunner just yet, this film remains one to watch.
With all the action going on at TIFF, including praise for 'Foxcatcher' and 'The Equalizer,' let us not forget entirely about 'Fury.' While Brad Pitt's WWII drama isn't making the rounds at the international film festival, a new international 'Fury' trailer has rolled out to keep the film on our radars.
Universal has released its 'The Boy Next Door' trailer, proving once again that 45-year-old Jennifer Lopez is still one hot tamale. We've seen her steam up our computer screens with that music video for "I Luh Yah Papi," in which she manhandled all her numerous boy toys, but now she's in way too deep with her smokin' hot but super-underage next-door neighbor.
The second full trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2' is here, and it features some seriously amateur kidnapping maneuvers, as the guys try to put together a foolproof plan to help Chris Pine's character get revenge on his dear old dad, played by Christoph Waltz. If these guys can't even spell "kidnapping" correctly, we don't see this thing turning out very well.
We'll profess to not knowing a whole lot about 'Destiny' - the new console game from Activision and developer Bungie ('Halo') - but after watching this new launch trailer directed by Joseph Kosinski ('Oblivion' and 'Tron: Legacy'), our interest level is definitely raised. At the very least, we'd watch this movie.
The new trailer for 'The Equalizer' essentially doubles down on what the other trailers have only hinted at: this movie is all about taking weird pleasure in watching a remarkably calm Denzel Washington kill off the Russian mob. It looks nothing like the TV show it's supposedly based on, but it does look like it'll fall right in line with the bulk of Washington's modern filmography. Once again, he plays the coolest guy in the room and once again, he's a good enough actor to make it all look oh-so-easy.
The 'ABCs of Death 2' trailer is not something you want to watch at work. Well, unless your workplace is cool with botched decapitations, exploding heads, massive male organs and other images that will be burned into your brain with the force of a hot iron. Then again, you shouldn't expect anything less from the 'ABCs of Death' series, which goes out of its way to be extreme, unpleasant, and, for a certain group of horror nuts, really fun.
Our first look at Jon Stewart's directorial debut has arrived in the 'Rosewater' trailer, showcasing a side of this funnyman we've never seen before. After years of making us laugh and sigh as the host of 'The Daily Show,' the beloved comedian has stepped behind the camera with a film that doesn't look like it has a single laugh in its entire running time, but it looks harrowing and fascinating all the same.
Instead of one full-length 'Foxcatcher' trailer (which would traditionally run around 2:30), Sony Classics has been issuing one-minute teasers for the film. We've got another new teaser trailer today, which focuses on Steve Carell's role as John du Pont (you can watch the previous teaser, focusing more on Channing Tatum's character, below). It really is remarkable to see how Carell has not only changed his looks (those teeth, my god, those teeth), but also his cadence. With labored breathing and long pauses, it doesn't sound like Steve Carell at all.
Remember that Jeff Bridges movie 'Seventh Son'? It was supposed to hit theaters this year, and we even got a Comic-Con 2013 panel from the film, but Legendary and Universal pushed it to 2015. Now, a new 'Seventh Son' trailer has been released to pretty much remind us all that it's still happening ... and that it kinda looks like what 'Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters' would've looked like without that R rating.
