New Yorkers aren’t exactly known for our sunny, upbeat demeanor. But even by the city’s surly standards, the character Robin Williams plays in his next movie has an attitude problem. He’s such an obnoxious jerk, in fact, that in the first Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer, he causes his doctor (played by Mila Kunis) to snap and tell him he has 90 minutes left to live.
What ensues is a mad-dash scramble to try and set things right before time is up. Williams’ Henry attempts to quickly mend his relationships with his wife (Melissa Leo), his brother (Peter Dinklage), his son (Hamish Linklater), his friends… it turns out pretty much everyone who’s met him has reason to be unhappy with him. Watch the first Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer after the jump.

A second Expendables 3 trailer has just been released. It asks that you “hang on for one last ride.” However, with a cast like this (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kellen Lutz, Ronda Roussey, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammer, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas and Mel Gibson to name a few), it’s hard to imagine The Expendables won’t be back again (and again). Especially since this latest trailer looks bigger than the last two films in every single way. It features the first actual footage we’ve seen from the August 15 release, including tons of action, attitude, humor and a roll call of the entire roster. Check out the latest Expendables 3 trailer below. Read More »

A second trailer for the Hammer Films horror film The Quiet Ones is now online. The film is based on a true story of a university professor (Jared Harris) who recruited some students (such as Sam Claflin) to help him conduct a series of experiments on a young girl (Olivia Cooke) who is possessed by a demon. Directed and co-written by John Pogue, The Quiet Ones is scheduled for release April 25.
Compared to the first Quiet Ones trailer, this one is shorter, punchier and incredibly effective. Check it out below. Read More »
The Voices is weird. Really weird, and violent, and even uncomfortable. The film features Ryan Reynolds as a mentally troubled guy who has a solid gig in a bathtub factory, and who finds himself acting out unconscious urges when he falls for a pretty girl at work. Those unconscious urges are often brought to the surface via pets owned by Reynolds’ character. See, the pets, a cat and a dog, talk to him, with the cat speaking in a rough Scottish brogue and the dog in a slow, gloppy and dopey drawl.
Marjane Satrapi, who directed Persepolis, made the film based on from a script by Michael R. Perry (Paranormal Activity 2). Now Lionsgate has bought US distribution rights, and will put the film in theaters later this year, hopefully without cuts. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Henry Joost and Ariel Shulman got a lot of attention at Sundance a few years ago for the film Catfish, and have even turned the movie into several popular seasons of television on MTV. Now the team is going back to genre pictures (having also directed Paranormal Activity 3 and 4) with a deal to direct Nerve, based on the YA novel from Jeanne Ryan. It’s a sci-fi story of sorts, with a high school girl who becomes a player in an online game, only to find that the game is far more dangerous and aware of her personality than she would have originally guessed.
