Best It Follows trailer

We’ve posted a few trailers for the indie horror film It Follows, but the movie is good, and deserves to build an audience. So here’s one more trailer for the film — the good news is that this may be the best It Follows trailer we’ve seen so far. This one sets up the basics of the story, in which a set of people are plagued by an unstoppable force that targets some sexually active kids, but also delves just a bit deeper into the situation without giving away anything too specific.

Great Directors documentary

The 2009 film Great Directors from doc filmmaker Angela Ismailos is a great introduction to the work, creative philosophies and personalities of ten directors: Bernardo Bertolucci, David Lynch, Liliana Cavani, Stephen Frears, Agnes Varda, Ken Loach, Todd Haynes, Catherine Breillat, Richard Linklater and John Sayles. The film presents conversations and clips from the work of those filmmakers, and is just the sort of thing to turn new audiences on to films from each of those filmmakers, or, if you’re already a fan of that crew, to bolster your knowledge of each. Watch the full Great Directors documentary below.  Read More »

Good Kill UK trailer

This new Good Kill UK trailer is a lot like the international trailer that dropped for the film not long ago. But it is a much better-assembled piece of work, with a more polished flow overall and a better deployment of the film’s signature elements. Specifically, Ethan Hawke as a fighter pilot turned drone pilot, who starts to crack as he targets and kills enemy combatants in the Middle East without leaving the safety of a control center in the US. Andrew Niccol (Gattaca) writes and directs, and just from this footage you might recognize the director’s touch. Check out this much better Good Kill trailer below. Read More »

Underdogs US trailer

Director Juan Jose Campanella (The Secret in Their Eyes) made an animated foosball movie a couple years ago, called variously Metegol and Foosball, and The Weinstein Company will release the movie in the US this spring under the title Underdogs. Along with giving the film that new title, the Weinsteins have dubbed the movie with an English-language voice cast that includes Matthew Morrison (Glee), Ariana Grande, Nicolas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Bell Thorne (Blended), Katie Holmes (Batman Begins) and John Leguizamo. You can see a new Underdogs US trailer, featuring work from that voice cast, after the break. Read More »

Huntsman director

It’s been an up and down news cycle for The Huntsman, which will be Universal’s prequel to the 2012 film Snow White and the Huntsman. First there was the news that it would leave out Snow White, but then came the announcement that Frank Darabont would write and direct. In a surprise move, however, Darabont pulled out of directing last week, thanks to “creative differences.” Now Universal has signed Cedric Nicolas-Troyan — the second-unit director and visual effects supervisor on the original film — to direct The Huntsman.

Kingsman upgrade

When theater attendance is declining overall, a little extra showmanship never hurts when trying to convince audience that theaters are the number one way to see a film. Food and drink, live personal appearances and quote-along events have become the obvious go-tos for most programmers. But some want to go a bit further. Take the Kingsman upgrade offered at one UK theater during a preview screening of Matthew Vaughn‘s film Kingsman: The Secret Service. If seeing the movie isn’t enough, how about being escorted into the film though a gauntlet of stunt performers in a live action scene? Check out video below. Read More »
