The New ‘Zoolander 2’ Trailer Is So Hot Right Now

by ScreenCrush Staff November 18, 2015 @ 7:36 AM
Cult comedies that attempt to regroup for a sequel many years after the original film often have mixed success. You’ll probably find few people who like Anchorman 2 or Dumb and Dumber To as much as the originals. But, that hasn’t stopped Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson from returning for Zoolander 2 and, despite the odds, this actually looks really funny.

‘Gods of Egypt’ Trailer: No Seriously, What the Hell Is This Movie?

The text says this is Gods of Egypt. And I recognize some of the actors here: Gerard Butler as Set, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus, Brenton Thwaites as Bek. And I know the director, Alex Proyas, a talented visual stylist who’s made films like the original Crow, Dark City, and Knowing. But what the hell did they make? Unlike so many of these big, loud wannabe blockbusters, Gods of Egypt isn’t a remake of an old movie, or based on a comic book or a video game. And it’s got big crazy CGI effects and Gerard Butler ripping out Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s eyes, and then people fighting giant fire-breathing snakes, and flying dudes with wings. It’s like the Clash of the Titans remake made a baby with Immortals, and then the baby got beat up by 300. Just weird weird weird.

‘Allegiant’ Trailer: The End of ‘Divergent’ Begins

by Matt Singer November 13, 2015 @ 12:09 PM
There are only three Divergent books. But there’s going to be four movies. Because when you take a popular series of young-adult novels and turn them into a series of movies, you always split the last one. That’s just the rule. If you don’t, they kick you out of Hollywood.

The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Trailer Will Run Before ‘The Force Awakens’

by Charles Bramesco November 11, 2015 @ 1:09 PM
Theaters tend to attach trailers to films that share their genre or target audience. It’s just good marketing — someone who’s just bought a ticket for Aggressive Action Movie A will probably be interested in a trailer for Aggressive Action Movie B, rom-com audiences want more rom-coms, so on and so forth. And so it follows an eminent logic that, as Collider has newly reported, the trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse will run preceding showings of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. They share the genre Movies Everyone in America Will Be Federally Mandated to See.

‘Triple 9’ Trailer: An Intense Heist Thriller With an Insane Cast

Open Road
I don’t think I’ve ever not recognized Kate Winslet in a movie before. But I did not recognize her in the latest trailer for Triple 9. It wasn’t until her name flashed onscreen that I even realized it was her — and even then I had to rewind to see for myself. According to Wikipedia, which is never wrong, she plays “a Russian-Israeli Mafia moll.” My favorite kind of Mafia moll!

‘Ride Along 2’ Trailer: It’s Time for a Ride Along Road Trip to Miami

by Britt Hayes November 10, 2015 @ 5:21 PM
The brothers-in-law (get it?!) are back, and this time Ice Cube is taking Kevin Hart down to Miami as Ride Along 2 takes the ride along on a road trip. The first trailer for the sequel has landed, and…this sort of looks like a rehash of the first film. That might not be an entirely bad thing, at least not on the studio level, since the first Ride Along proved to be such a big hit.

‘Finding Dory’ Trailer: Pixar Returns With an Unforgettable Adventure

by Mike Sampson November 10, 2015 @ 8:03 AM
You’d be forgiven for thinking that Finding Nemo didn’t really need a sequel. It was a completely charming, yet contained adventure, wrapped up pretty neatly. But, it was a very, very successful Pixar movie and, these days, that means sequel. Of the first seven Pixar movies, only Finding Nemo and A Bug’s Life (which has seemed to be almost ret-conned out of existence in the Pixar universe) hadn’t yet had sequels, but that’s about to change next summer as Finding Dory opens in theaters.

‘Concussion’ Trailer: Will Smith Mounts an Offense Against the NFL

by Britt Hayes November 8, 2015 @ 1:29 PM
A new trailer for Concussion has arrived, featuring more footage from the upcoming sports drama starring Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic neuropathologist who discovers just how traumatic — and fatal — head injuries can be for football players. Based on actual events (and ongoing controversy), Concussion looks like a very different kind of sports movie, though there’s still something a bit average about these trailers.

‘Chi-Raq’ Trailers Introduce Spike Lee’s Bold Retelling of an Ancient Greek Play

by Britt Hayes November 7, 2015 @ 1:21 PM
We’ve been blessed with not just one, but two new Spike Lee films this year, both retellings of established stories, and both very different kinds of movies. Following the release of Da Sweet Blood of Jesus (based on the cult classic Ganja and Hess) earlier this year, Lee returns with Chi-Raq — based on the ancient Greek comedy Lysistrata, the film also happens to be Amazon’s first original production, and we have two new trailers for the ambitious project.
