I know San Andreas is a dark, serious disaster movie about a massive earthquake that decimates most of the West Coast, but c’mon; shouldn’t they have called it That Fault’s A’Rocking? It stars The Rock! It’s the San Andreas fault! It’s rocking! Because the earthquake and he’s Dwayne “The Rock” Johnsyou know what nevermind, let’s just move on.

One of Robin Williams’ final projects was lending his voice to the comedy Absolutely Anything, in which Simon Pegg is granted immense power to do, well, anything in the world, thanks to some scheming aliens. The first trailer paints the film as something like Bruce Almighty, but with aliens instead of God.
LEGO’s popularity is at an all-time high, thanks in part to the vast success of The LEGO Movie, which quickly launched a series of spinoffs and a new sequel. The major studios all have relationships with the toy giant, which releases LEGO sets based on popular franchises like the Marvel and Warner Bros. superhero films, as well as Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean. You really can’t get into the blockbuster business without getting into the brick-buster business (sorry). A LEGO Brickumentary will now tell the story of the manufacturer, with a little help from Jason Bateman.
The Nightmare is the latest film from Room 237 director Rodney Ascher, combining a mix of documentary interviews with eerie reenactments to explore the concept of sleep paralysis — a fairly common, if unsettling problem that plenty of people have faced. We have the first trailer for the upcoming horror documentary, which gathered a bit of attention when it played both Sundance and SXSW this year.
Although not as publicized as award-winner Me and Earl and the Dying Girl following this year’s Sundance film festival, Tangerine was also a movie that got a lot of people talking. It’s the first film shot entirely on an iPhone to get a theatrical release, but that’s not the only exciting aspect — the film centers on two transgender women of color, a demographic that is sadly underrepresented in the media. And now you can see why this film is generating so much buzz via a new red band trailer.
You know what’s better than Tom Hardy? Two Tom Hardys for the price of one. That’s what we get in the first trailer for 1960s gangster drama Legend, from the Academy Award-winning writer of L.A. Confidential, lending it a little extra cred for good measure — as if two Tom Hardys wasn’t enough for you.
Just yesterday, THR reported on a conversation with Universal executive Donna Langley, who revealed that the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey sequel is “more of a thriller.” The first teaser, as promised, has arrived, and in keeping with the Fifty Shades Darker title, it definitely looks…darker? It’s certainly a little ominous.
On paper, The Last Witch Hunter seems silly, but you know who can handle silly action well? Vin Diesel. The leader of the Riddick franchise is taking on witches and supernatural forces in his upcoming film, and judging by the trailer there’s going to be lots of sword-wielding, flames, and flaming sword-wielding action. Did we also mention Michael Caine is in this? Michael Caine is in this. Let’s go.
Not a year goes by without a new Woody Allen film, so even when he delivers a so-so product, there’s always the promise of a better film around the corner. This year brings Irrational Man, which is set to make its debut at Cannes next month ahead of its summer release. The first trailer has arrived to promote the Cannes premiere, and looks to feature rather charming performances from Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix.
Your knee-jerk reaction to the words “ballet drama” may be to avert your eyes, but like Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan, upcoming Starz series Flesh and Bone promises to deliver on some very dark aspects of the world of ballet. The first trailer for the series definitely doesn’t play down that comparison, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as the series likely hopes to draw a similar audience — especially with the help of acclaimed Australian director David Michod.
