You’ve got to hand it to Jonah Hill and James Franco, both of whom manage to effortlessly glide between comedic and dramatic roles. It’s not easy to be a popular goofball and an Oscar nominated “serious” actor, but somehow these two have managed to pull it off. Their latest film, ‘True Story’ is unique in that it is the first project to cast them together in dramatic roles. When you watch the first trailer for film, you can be forgiven for expecting them to drop the dramatic stare-downs and start riffing with each other at any moment.

David Robert Mitchell’s ‘It Follows’ made the festival rounds throughout 2014 and the general consensus was that it was one of the scariest films of the year. Well, technically it’s one of the scariest films of next year, since it won’t actually open in theaters until 2015. But believe us: This is one horror movie worth the wait, and the freaky new domestic trailer should do a fine job of whetting your appetite.
Earlier we showed you the trailer for one of the best films from this year’s SXSW, and now we’re thrilled to show you the trailer for one of the best films from neighboring Austin film festival Fantastic Fest. Behold, the first trailer for ‘The Duke of Burgundy,’ a film that renders ‘50 Shades of Grey’ even more unnecessary than it already was. From the filmmakers behind ‘Berberian Sound Studio’ comes this seductive and brilliant new film that will definitely give you something to talk about.
One of the best films from this year’s SXSW film festival is undoubtedly ‘Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter,’ in which ‘Pacific Rim’ star Rinko Kikuchi plays a young woman from Tokyo who believes that the Coen brothers film ‘Fargo’ is actually a true story. The first official teaser trailer for ‘Kumiko’ has arrived online today, just as haunting and beautiful as the film itself.
From ‘The Dark Knight’ to ‘Knight of Cups’: The first trailer for director Terrence Malick’s latest film has arrived and it’s ... super Terrence Malick-y. Shots of beaches! People walking slowly! Solemn voiceover narration! Other people walking slowly—on beaches! I was one glimpse of Christian Bale running his hand through a field of thistle from winning Terrence Malick Bingo!
On paper, 'A Most Violent Year' doesn't sound like anything special. It's a story we've seen a hundred times before: a criminal finds his bloody business creeping into his family life, threatening to tear down everything he's worked so hard to build. However, when you put J.C. Chandor in the director's chair and cast people like Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain in the lead roles, what was once old starts to feel new again.
We’ve seen the green band trailer, we’ve seen the naughtier red band trailer, and now we have the final, ultimate trailer for the Seth Rogen and James Franco action comedy ‘The Interview,’ which features a whole lot more Kim Jong-Un. According to James Franco’s character, he’s not so bad—he does give an adorable puppy as a gift (if this year’s film trends are any indication, that puppy’s life may be in danger), and he really digs Katy Perry.
Hopefully ‘Wild Card’ is better than Jason Statham’s last outing, ‘Homefront.’ The new film is a remake of ‘Heat,’ the 1968 movie starring Burt Reynolds, and is based on a screenplay by Academy Award-winning writer William Goldman (‘All the President’s Men,’ ‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’). Can Statham fill the awesome shoes of Reynolds? Not likely, but you can enjoy watching him try his hand in this new trailer.
We first saw a trailer for ‘The Loft’ way back in 2012, and since then this thriller remake has languished in studio limbo, bouncing from Universal over to Open Road films. Originally slated for a 2014 release, the movie finally has a new release date, hitting theaters in January. Along with the new release date comes a new trailer, in which a group of married dudes buy a loft so they can have affairs on the down low. Everything is great for these jackasses until one of the women they brought to their pleasure pad is murdered. You know how it goes.
If you loved ‘Divergent’ and are already totally on board with the cinematic adaptations of Veronica Roth’s young adult science fiction novels, then the trailer for the awkwardly titled ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ is probably going to prove exciting. If you’re unfamiliar with the franchise, prepare for 144 seconds that might as well be in a foreign language.
