‘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.

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.’
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.
A ‘Minions’ movie shouldn't work. They were undoubtedly the best part of the ‘Despicable Me’ movies, and a very large part of why those films were successful. But, could they actually support their own movie? That would be like giving Kramer his own ‘Seinfeld’ spinoff. Yet, watching this new ‘Minions’ trailer has us totally hooked. This could actually work.
We haven’t seen much from ‘Tomorrowland’ yet, so the new Super Bowl trailer is very pleasant surprise for anyone anticipating the new film from director Brad Bird. In fact the trailer leans heavily on Bird’s name, promoting the film as being the latest project from the genius who made ‘The Incredibles’ and ‘Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol.’ More importantly, the new trailer feels like exactly what we needed after that vague teaser. There is as much action and excitement in these quick spot as their is mystery in the full trailer.
You know that annoying movie trope where the story begins with something wild and crazy before flashing back to explain how we got there? The new ‘The Lazarus Effect’ trailer may be the first movie preview actually guilty of utilizing this tired device. Thankfully, the rest of the film actually looks like a pretty solid mash-up of a bunch of various horror concepts that we happen to dig starring a bunch of people we like, so we’re on board.
You may recall a horror film from 2007 called ‘Teeth,’ about a teen girl coping with the discovery that she’s been afflicted with the fabled Vagina Dentata. The director of that film, Mitchell Lichtenstein (yes, the son of famous pop artist Roy Lichtenstein) has returned with a new horror film, and this one looks way more atmospheric, but still appears to deal with sexual and gender politics, much like ‘Teeth.’ Bonus: it stars Jena Malone, who most recently appeared in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ and ‘Inherent Vice.’
Here’s what you need to know about ‘The Salvation’: it features ‘Hannibal’ star Mads Mikkelsen and Eternal Queen of Darkness Eva Green, and it’s a gritty and bloody revenge-filled Western that takes place in the 19th century…which sounds absolutely amazing. The first U.S. trailer has arrived for the upcoming film, and it definitely promises a whole lot of dusty outlaw violence.
Just last month we saw the first trailer for ‘Focus,’ the new con-man romance thriller starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as quite an ambitious pair of criminals, who let their feelings for each other get in the way of their schemes. Today brings a second, longer trailer for the film, which sheds a little more light on the plot and brings these two classy criminals into, um, focus.
Following her role in Cary Fukunaga’s gorgeous and haunting adaptation of ‘Jane Eyre,’ Mia Wasikowska is at it again with another adaptation of a literary classic—this time, it’s ‘Madame Bovary,’ which boasts a lovely cast and even lovelier scenery, with Wasikowska playing the titular role of a woman who quickly discovers that she’s married a total Debbie Downer. So what does Mme. Bovary do? Have some affairs with some handsome fellas, of course.
