There’s plenty of insanity to go around on all sides of this year’s presidential race, but it’s not like high-profile elections have ever been scandal- and drama-free. Case in point: remember the 2013 mayoral race? You know, the one that ended with Carlos Danger showing up and ruining everything for then-frontrunner Anthony Weiner? A new documentary, Weiner, looks at the politician’s dramatic and very public decline, offering a juicy inside look at a campaign in crisis. Read More »

What’s more exciting than mathematical theories? The Man Who Knew Infinity isn’t so much about equations and theories, but the film does focus on one of 20th century’s most notable mathematicians, Srinivasa Ramanujan. Dev Patel (The Newsroom) stars in the biopic as Ramanujan, alongside Jeremy Irons, Stephen Fry, and Toby Jones.

It looks like one of this spring’s big cinematic themes is going to be heavily fictionalized not-quite-biopics about washed-up jazz legends staging unlikely comebacks. Just a few days before Don Cheadle’s Miles Ahead hits theaters, IFC Films is releasing Born to Be Blue, starring Ethan Hawke as Chet Baker.
Directed by Robert Budreau, the film picks up with Baker in the 1960s. Though he was a big deal in the 1950s, his heroin addiction has taken its toll, demolishing his personal and professional life. But with the help of a new love (played by Carmen Ejogo), he finds the strength to try and dig himself out of the hole he’s put himself in, and begin the climb back to the top. Watch the Born to Be Blue trailer after the jump.

This summer hasn’t really been a great one for horror, but thankfully there seem to be some more promising entries on the horizon as fall rolls around. One on our radar is The Hallow, a British-Irish supernatural thriller that got some good reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The story follows a British conservationist (Joseph Mawle) who’s sent to rural Ireland, wife (Bojana Novakovic) and infant son in tow, to survey a forest for development. Locals warn him that the woods are teeming with malevolent spirits and supernatural creatures, and he realizes too late that they’re probably right. Watch The Hallow trailer after the jump.

Canadian director Bruce McDonald has been making weird movies and TV shows for a long time; his 1991 film Highway 61 is a personal fave, as are the 1998 series Twitch City and the 2008 thriller Pontypool. His latest film is Hellions, in which a few people have probably their worst-ever Halloween night when demonic little trick-or-treaters show up on their doorstep. The Hellions trailer has some very odd Halloween sights; have a look below. Read More »

Romantic comedies usually don’t impress me. They’re just not my cup of tea unless I really like the on-screen talent involved. More often than not it’s the indie romantic comedies that bring something fresh enough to shake up the subgenre to make it entertaining and sincere, and that’s exactly what happens with Sleeping with Other People.
The Sundance selected movie from Bachelorette writer and director Leslye Headland features Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis as two two sex addicts unable to commit to real relationships who decide to hold each other accountable for their destructive behavior and strike up quite the strong bond. So strong that they begin to act like a couple, even though they’re not, and you know what that means
This is an R-rated romantic comedy so the new Sleeping with Other People red band trailer is the best way to get the right vibe from this hilarious, authentic romance. Watch the new trailer below! Read More »

One of my favorite films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival was the raunchy romantic comedy Sleeping with Other People, starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. Thankfully, IFC Films picked up the indie from the festival, and you’ll be able to see it in theaters in just a few weeks.
In the meantime, a new international trailer for the film has just surfaced, and be prepared to watch it somewhere privately, because even though it’s not an official red band trailer, it’s still a little NSFW, due to some pretty risque conversation topics. The major culprit is Sudeikis explaining to Brie how to touch herself in a very intimate way.

As Emmy voters recognize Elisabeth Moss one last time for her work on Mad Men, she’s already moved on to a thriving post-Sterling Cooper career.

The film Phoenix, a post-WWII thriller set in Berlin immediately after the war, has played festivals and is currently playing only New York City in the US. Even so, it should be it a film everyone knows about and is ready to see when the opportunity arises, as suggested by its standing at 98% on Rotten Tomatoes with more than 40 reviews. The film will hit LA on July 31, with more cities to come afterward.
No surprise that director Christian Petzold‘s new film is terrific, as he’s been building his skills for years (check out Barbara on Netflix) but this looks like one you won’t want to sleep on. We ran a Phoenix trailer last fall when the film was at the Toronto International Film Festival, but here’s the latest one to remind us all that this one is now rolling out slowly. Read More »
