‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Trailer: The Bellas Go International

by Jacob Hall February 10, 2015 @ 11:15 AM
The first ‘Pitch Perfect’ was a sleeper success, doing surprisingly solid business at the box office and earning equally solid reviews from critics. But it was home video that transformed this little a cappella comedy into a genuine sensation, instantly becoming the favorite film of 12-year-old girls (and their initially reluctant parents) all over the world. So the new ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ trailer arrives with the air of an event film. The sequel is not an underdog, but the Bigger, Flashier, and Louder follow-up that has the confidence to suggest that there is an entire franchise to be found here.

‘Straight Outta Compton’ Trailer: You Are Now About to Witness the Strength of Street Knowledge

by Mike Sampson February 9, 2015 @ 8:32 AM
‘Straight Outta Compton’, the biopic of controversial gangsta rap group N.W.A., hasn't had the easiest road to the big screen. The film has been in development since 2009, with a number of directors set to direct. Finally, Universal Pictures came on board to make the film happen with director F. Gary Gray (who had previously worked with both Ice Cube and Dr. Dre on previous projects), but the big question is, was it worth the wait?

‘Cut Bank’ Trailer: Liam Hemsworth Would Like His Reward Now, Please

by Britt Hayes February 8, 2015 @ 1:27 PM
We haven’t heard much about country thriller ‘Cut Bank,’ which was snatched up by A24 prior to its premiere at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, but there’s now a trailer for the new film, starring Liam Hemsworth (the non-‘Thor’ Hemsworth) and Billy Bob Thornton. The trailer touts a comparison to the Coen Brothers’ classic ‘Blood Simple’ (obviously), which is a set of pretty big shoes to fill, but with Thornton and a pretty solid cast on board, it looks solid at the very least.

‘Beyond the Reach’ Trailer: Michael Douglas Wants to Watch You Die

Before we get a chance to see Michael Douglas play the good guy in ‘Ant-Man,’ we’re going to see him take on a much more twisted role in ‘Beyond the Reach.’ The upcoming thriller features Douglas as a powerful businessman who goes out hunting in the desert, where he accidentally murders someone and then purposely tries to murder someone else. Fun!

‘Faults’ Trailer: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Needs a Little Deprogramming

by Britt Hayes February 5, 2015 @ 8:25 PM
One of the best films to come out of SXSW last year was ‘Faults,’ an unnerving, gloriously dark and wry thriller featuring Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a cult member whose parents sanction an expert to kidnap and deprogram her. Of course, it doesn’t go that smoothly in the film, which was directed by Winstead’s husband, Riley Stearns. ‘Faults’ is finally hitting theaters, and the first appropriately twisted trailer has arrived.

‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2’ Trailer: Kevin James Fights Thieves and a Bird and a Horse and an Old Woman and...

by Jacob Hall February 5, 2015 @ 11:37 AM
After six long years, our national nightmare is over. The sequel to ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop’ has finally arrived. In the stunningly titled ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2,’ Kevin James reprises his role as the portly rent-a-cop with a bad habit of stumbling into dangerous situations that are beyond his meager pay grade. This time, he fights thieves while attending a security conference in Las Vegas, as you are wont to do when you visit Las Vegas in a comedy sequel.

Pro-tip: if you're scared of clowns or creepy dolls, you might want to skip the new ‘Poltergeist’ trailer. If you're all good with evil clown dolls coming to life and attacking young children, what are you waiting for?! You can watch the new ‘Poltergeist’ trailer above.

‘Fast and Furious 7’ Trailer: This Time It Ain't Just About Being Fast

‘Fast and Furious 7’—the next installment in the best film franchise that isn’t Marvel—is coming this spring after some lengthy delays (it was originally scheduled to open last summer), and based on this new trailer, we couldn’t be more excited.

The ‘Magic Mike XXL’ Trailer Isn’t Long, But Size Doesn’t Matter

by Matt Singer February 4, 2015 @ 9:30 AM
It’s great when a movie understands exactly what it is. ‘Magic Mike’ was an intelligently made Steven Soderbergh movie about life in Great Recession America. But it became a huge surprise hit in the summer of 2012—grossing $167 million worldwide against a budget of just $7 million—because it had Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, and an assortment of the finest man-candy in Hollywood bumping and grinding with their shirts off. The marketing for ‘Magic Mike XXL’ seems to have an innate sense of this. The first poster is a picture of Tatum with his shirt off, pointing at his crotch where the word “Coming” is suggestively placed. And this teaser trailer is basically Channing Tatum (and the rest of his team of shredded male strippers) dancing, stripping, and then dancing with their shirts off. I smell box-office gold. Wait, no, that’s baby oil and Muscle Milk. But those things smell a lot like box-office gold when they’re in ‘Magic Mike XXL.’

‘Lost River’ Trailer: Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut Takes You Under the Sea

by Britt Hayes February 3, 2015 @ 5:21 PM
Hey girl, not long ago it was rumored that ‘Lost River,’ the directorial debut from Ryan Gosling, would be heading straight to VOD—but that rumor was quickly debunked, and we’ll be seeing Baby Goose’s new movie in April. Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for the upcoming film, which is scheduled to play at SXSW in March after making the festival rounds last year, where it garnered some mixed-to-negative reviews.
