This Week In Trailers: Run This Town, Enormous: The Gorge Story, Over the Rainbow, Enter the Fat Dragon, Love Fraud

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get religious with a look at Scientology, travel really far for a good time, see Donny Yen become the martial arts version of The...

These are 2020’s most anticipated movies

Around this time a year ago, we were all charged up with anticipation to see the climax of the 23-film Marvel Cinematic Universe, the end of the 42-year-old main “Star Wars” saga and career-culminating epics from Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. Nothing on that scale is coming along in the 2020 movie year. But appropriately enough for the start of a new decade, the films getting released in the next 12 months will likely reset Hollywood’s trajectory. And that’s something long overdue. To s...

‘Avenue 5’ Trailer: Josh Gad Invites You on a “Luxury” Space Experience

Josh Gad is not the best billionaire salesman, but he does his awkward, creepy best in the latest Avenue 5 trailer, which plays like a very bad advertisement for Gad’s luxury space cruise. In the new space comedy from Veep creator Armando Ianucci, Gad plays Judd Galaxy’s founder, Herman Judd, who uses stock footage and shots of Hugh Laurie to bring us a vision of the future of space travel.

‘Avenue 5’ Teaser: The Creator of ‘Veep’ Takes Us on a Luxurious Space Cruise with Hugh Laurie and Josh Gad

Veep creator and In the Loop director Armando Ianucci got bored with political satire a little while back, mostly because the real politics of today are far too ludicrous and depressing to effectively make comedy out of them. But that’s not stopping the masterful comedy writer and director from starting a new series. Avenue 5 has Armando Ianucci taking us to space aboard the luxurious space cruise ship of the same name. Hugh Laurie is the captain who seems to love his job, that is until the shi...
