This Week In Trailers: The Comedy Store, After So Many Days, I Am Greta, Wolfwalkers, Bigorexia

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 pay a visit to a historic comedy venue, live on the road to try to hit it big, save the world, catch the latest by Oscar-caliber...

‘The Devil Has a Name’ Trailer: The Truth Lies Beneath

Have you heard the news? The Devil Has a Name! Or so the title of this new movie claims. Featuring always-welcomed character actor David Strathairn, this film claims to “comedically pull back the curtain on the culture of greed that poisons Corporate America, from sea to polluted sea.” Kate Bosworth, Edward James Olmos, Martin Sheen, Alfred Molina, and Haley Joel Osment all appear here, with Olmos also directing from a script by Rob McEveety. Watch The Devil Has a Name trailer below. The De...

‘The Father’ Trailer: Anthony Hopkins Gets His Wires Crossed

The Father earned rave reviews out of the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and from all accounts, it seems as if Anthony Hopkins is going to be in contention for another Academy Award thirty years after he won the trophy for playing Hannibal Lecter in 1991’s The Silence of the Lambs. In this movie, Hopkins plays an elderly man who slowly begins to lose his grip on reality, while fellow Oscar winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite) plays the daughter who’s trying to make sure he’s properly...

‘The Wolf of Snow Hollow’ Trailer: Robert Forster Hunts a Werewolf in His Final Feature Role

Jim Cummings made quite a splash in 2018 when the writer-filmmaker-star made his feature directorial debut with Thunder Road, a microbudget indie comedy that won the Grand Jury prize at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival. It earned him enough buzz that he was able to score Oscar nominee Robert Forster for his follow-up film, The Wolf of Snow Hollow, in what would be — in a bittersweet turn of events — Forster’s final feature film role. Watch The Wolf of Snow Hollow trailer below. The Wolf of Snow ...

Hans Zimmer Directed a Choir Over FaceTime to Create the ‘Dune’ Trailer’s Pink Floyd Cover

With the release of the buzzy Dune trailer last week, director Denis Villeneuve paid subtle homage to one of the past failed adaptations of Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi tome. The trailer featured a choral cover of the Pink Floyd song “Eclipse,” from the English band’s 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon. But it was more than just a creepy cover of a rock song that makes the choice of Pink Floyd a surprising fit for the Dune trailer. Back in the ’70s, when Alejandro Jodorowsky famously attempted ...

‘Welcome to the Blumhouse’ Trailers: Four Unsettling Films Under One Roof (that Roof Being Amazon Prime Video)

Welcome to the Blumhouse is the latest series of anthology films from the fright masters of Blumhouse. They did something similar with Hulu’s Into the Dark, and now they’re headed to Amazon Prime Video with a series of four films – two premiering on October 6, and two premiering on October 13. There was already one trailer encapsulating all the films, and now each film has its own trailer to get you ready for next month. Black Box Trailer First up we have Black Box. Written by Emmanuel ...

‘Synchronic’ Trailer: Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead Send Anthony Mackie on a Strange Trip

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, the filmmakers behind Resolution, Spring, and The Endless, are back with Synchronic. Once again, the filmmakers are playing around with space and time, and it might be their most ambitious film yet. In the film, Anthony Mackie plays a paramedic in New Orleans who finds himself going on a series of very, very strange trips. Watch the Synchronic trailer below.

‘Dick Johnson is Dead’ Trailer: Kirsten Johnson Blends Fact and Fiction

Dick Johnson is Dead, the winner of the 2020 Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Award for Innovation in Nonfiction Storytelling, is headed to Netflix next month, so get your tissues ready because it’s going to make you cry. Acclaimed filmmaker Kirsten Johnson uses her unique eye to focus on her aging father, Dick Johnson, staging elaborate (fake) ways for the man to die all in the hopes of staving off the inevitable.

‘Love and Monsters’ Trailer: Can Young Love Survive in the Aftermath of a Giant Monster Apocalypse?

Some of the most soul-crushing and formative experiences come from young romance. But imagine how much harder that kind of love would be in the wake of a giant monster apocalypse. Love and Monsters is a new sci-fi romance that finds a young man named Joel (Dylan O’Brien) estranged from his high school girlfriend Aimee (Jessica Henwick) after giant monsters appeared on Earth and forced what remained of humanity to hide underground. But when he reconnects with her on a radio, Joel decides to risk...

‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Teaser: Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn Are Back as The Claus Family

It’s been two years since Kurt Russell became Santa Claus in the Netflix family adventure comedy The Christmas Chronicles. Now the holiday movie has become a franchise and a real family affair of sorts, because after appearing in a cameo at the end of the first movie, Kurt Russell’s longtime partner Goldie Hawn is returning with a bigger role as Mrs. Claus in The Christmas Chronicles 2. The first brief teaser has arrived to announce the film’s arrival on Netflix in November, and the first synop...

‘Scare Me’ Trailer: Want to Hear a Scary Story?

Cool weather has not yet swept across the country, but fall is nearly upon us. And as we approach Halloween, a new swath of horror movies await. One we’re particularly looking forward to is a horror comedy called Scare Me, which stars Josh Ruben and Aya Cash as two writers who find themselves cooped up in a cabin in the woods and decide to tell each other scary stories. Check out the newest trailer below. Scare Me Trailer I was really looking forward to watching Scare Me at this year’s ...

‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ Trailer: Protests Turn Violent and Go to Court in Aaron Sorkin’s Timely and Relevant Drama

With peaceful protests turning violent in cities all over America this summer, Aaron Sorkin‘s drama The Trial of the Chicago 7 couldn’t be more timely and relevant. The new Netflix original movie focuses on the true story of another peaceful protest at the 1968 Democratic National Convention that turned into a violent clash with police and the court case that followed when seven protesters charged by the federal government with conspiracy. The first Trial of the Chicago 7 trailer has arrived, a...

‘Saint Maud’ Trailer: A24’s New Horror Movie is Still Set to Open This Year, Maybe

Sooner or later, A24 will release Saint Maud here in the states. I’m genuinely surprised they haven’t gone the VOD route with this one yet, as it’s a relatively small movie that would play great at home. But while we here in America wait to see what A24 is going to do, those in the UK will be able to check the film out when it arrives in October. Ahead of that release, here’s a new trailer. Saunt Maud Trailer  It’s hard for me to believe, but I saw Saint Maud almost a full year ago, at ...

‘2067’ Trailer: Kodi Smit-McPhee Tries to Save the Future

Welcome to the future, where Earth has been ruined by climate change! Fun, right? Well, that’s the premise of 2067, a new sci-film featuring time travel, post-apocalyptic landscapes, and Kodi Smit-McPhee dressed like a Ghostbuster. Ryan Kwanten also stars in the film, which comes from writer-director Seth Larney. Watch the 2067 trailer below. 2067 Trailer I can’t imagine 2067 was a big production with a big budget – which makes this trailer all the more impressive. The special effects w...

Watch: Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Trailer Side By Side with Footage From David Lynch’s Version

Earlier this week, the movie gods gave us a treat: the trailer for Denis Villeneuve‘s highly anticipated film adaptation of Dune, based on the classic science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert. The book has long been considered to be virtually unfilmable – but that hasn’t stopped multiple directors from trying over the years. Alejandro Jodorowsky gave it a shot but couldn’t get it over the finish line (as detailed in the 2014 documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune), while David Lynch actually succe...

‘Books of Blood’ Trailer: Clive Barker’s Classic Horror Collection Becomes a Hulu Movie

Clive Barker’s Books of Blood has inspired a few films already, and now Hulu is giving it a go with their own Books of Blood movie. If you’re hoping to see a bunch of the tales from Barker’s books present in this film, well…you shouldn’t. Instead, Books of Blood uses the framing device Barker used and then spirals off into its own original tales of terror. Watch the Books of Blood trailer below. Books of Blood Trailer I’ve already seen Hulu’s new Books of Blood, and while I can’t tell y...

‘Save Yourselves!’ Trailer: An Alien Apocalypse for the Social Media Age

What if you were taking a peaceful, phone-free getaway in an idyllic cabin in the woods, only to be interrupted by an alien invasion? That’s the wacky premise of the indie comedy Save Yourselves! which imagines an apocalypse for the social media age — and to an extent, the social distancing age.

‘Freaky’ Trailer: What Happens When Teenage Girl Gets Trapped in the Body of a Serial Killer?

The body swap formula never seems to get old, with comedies like Vice Versa, Freaky Friday, Hot Chick and The Change-Up giving us different variations on the familiar trope. But take that premise and apply it to the horror genre, and you get something totally fresh. Freaky is a new horror comedy from Blumhouse that finds a high school girl (Kathryn Newton of Blockers) switching bodies with a serial killer known as The Butcher (Vince Vaughn) thanks to a mystical ancient dagger. It sounds like a ...

‘Hubie Halloween’ Trailer: Adam Sandler’s Back to Making Silly Netflix Comedies

Every decade or so, Adam Sandler will emerge from semi-retirement to remind us that he really can act. And we, like the idiots we are, won’t give him the recognition he deserves. But this time, Sandler is coming back to his bad comedy career with a vengeance, having declared last year that if he didn’t get an Oscar for his spectacular performance in Uncut Gems, he would make a movie “that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay.” He didn’t get the Oscar.

‘Memories of Murder’ Re-Release Trailer Brings Back a Bong Joon-Ho Classic

Bong Joon-Ho‘s 2003 film Memories of Murder is getting a high-profile re-release from Neon, the company that distributed his award-winning Parasite. The mystery-thriller has been digitally remastered and will head to theaters for two nights in October. After that, the film is set to head to Blu-ray as part of the Criterion Collection.

‘Charm City Kings’ Trailer: A Kid Named Mouse Just Wants to Cruise Through the Streets of Baltimore

The size of your dreams can often depend on where you grow up. Since 14-year old Mouse ( Jahi Di’Allo Winston) lives in the tough streets of Baltimore in the Sundance selected drama Charm City Kings, his options aren’t exactly plentiful. That’s why right now he only has his sights set on joining the Midnight Clique of dirt-bike riders. But first, he needs his own bike. The only problem is the opportunities to get enough cash together for a bike are few and far between, and as the Charm City K...

‘Dune’ Trailer: Denis Villeneuve’s Visionary Take on the Sci-Fi Classic Looks Truly Epic

Frank Herbert’s seminal 1965 science fiction novel Dune has long been considered a dense, sprawling, essentially unadaptable narrative, with the wreckage of several mediocre-to-disastrous attempts serving as a warning about the perils of trying to bring this story to the big screen. But it looks like director Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049, Sicario) has finally done the story justice, because the film’s first trailer has arrived, and wow, this thing rules. Feast your eyes on one of the bes...

‘Nomadland’ Trailer: Frances McDormand Heads West in Chloé Zhao’s New Film

Less than four years after the breakout success of The Rider, Chloé Zhao is already one of the biggest names in Hollywood. The Beijing-born director is working on Marvel Studios’ highly anticipated blockbuster Eternals, but before that, she has another indie arthouse film set to sweep the film festival circuit this year. Nomadland, starring Frances McDormand, is Zhao’s anticipated follow-up to The Rider, another melancholic Western that stars the Oscar winner as a wandering nomad in the contemp...

‘Rebecca’ Trailer: Kristen Scott Thomas Terrorizes Lily James and Armie Hammer in This New Take on the Haunting Gothic Classic

How do you follow up Alfred Hitchcock? The 1941 Rebecca was famously the only film Hitchcock directed that nabbed a Best Picture win at the Oscars, and remains to this day, a beloved adaptation of the Daphne du Maurier Gothic classic. But can Ben Wheatley‘s new version hold a candle to Hitchcock’s film, or even du Maurier’s haunting novel? We’ll have to see once it hits Netflix this October. Watch the Rebecca trailer below.

‘The Comeback Trail’: Robert De Niro Tries to Murder Tommy Lee Jones for Insurance Money

The first Friday the 13th of this year came on March 13, just days before the world shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The final Friday the 13th of 2020 arrives in November. While we have no clue what the state of the world will be at that point, a new movie will be released that day which features three Oscar winners in a comedy about a group of conmen trying to murder an actor during the filming of a fake movie. See Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman, Tommy Lee Jones, Zach Braff, Eddie Griff...

‘No Time To Die’ International Trailer: Same Bond, New Footage

If you need more Bond action after the new No Time to Die domestic trailer, here’s an international trailer for your viewing pleasure. While this isn’t that different from the domestic trailer there’s still new footage – and some old footage presented in new ways – and that should be enough. This trailer also makes the film look gorgeous. In fact, as blasphemous as this may be, I think the cinematography here by Linus Sandgren is even better than Roger Deakins’ Skyfall cinematography.

Gloria Steinem is an American icon, journalist, and social political activist who became the face of the feminist movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Now the story of her revolutionary life is getting an unconventional biopic from Across the Universe director Julie Taymor. Inspired by Gloria Steinem’s biography My Life on the Road, The Glorias will tell the feminist’s story at various stages of her life, from her childhood years to the 1977 National Women’s Conference and several mom...

‘Bleeding Audio’ Trailer: What Does It Take for a Band to Break Out in the Digital Music Industry?

What does it take for a band to break through in the increasingly digital music industry? Pop punk band The Matches grappled with that question through their 12-year career, which started in 1997 Oakland and seemed to be on the rise until the mid-2000s when digital music struck and the physical LP was rendered obsolete. To chronicle their rise and fall, and their eventual reunion, director Chelsea Christer made the documentary Bleeding Audio, “an intimate portrait detailing The Matches’ promisi...
