Our first look at the crime thriller Nightcrawler featured star Jake Gyllenhaal going through a few permutations of a job pitch to an unseen person — and despite that potentially dull setup, it was a strange, riveting piece of film thanks to Gyllenhaal’s performance. Now there’s a longer Nightcrawler trailer that shows us a lot more of Gyllenhaal’s character as he combs the nighttime streets of LA looking for lurid news. And even though we see a lot more, this trailer still leaves a lot of questions.
I love this new look at the film, and each new thing we learn about the movie helps it climb to a higher spot on the “must watch” list. Check out the Nightcrawler teaser trailer below.

Nightcrawler is not a film featuring the furry blue X-Man, but don’t close the tab just yet! The film features Jake Gyllenhaal as a small-time crook in Los Angeles, and, well, we don’t know much more. The first teaser for the movie is a bit out of the ordinary, and is actually pretty refreshing. It features some intense work from Gyllenhaal, and leaves a lot of room for you to figure out what comes next. Check out the Nightcrawler teaser below. Read More »
Jon Favreau‘s small, personal film Chef opens in New York and Los Angeles this weekend. It’s really good but not for the reasons you’d think. Yes, there is a lot of cooking and delicious-looking food, which is always fun to watch. However, what makes Favreau’s film really tasty is that it’s more about a father’s relationship with his son, the way social media has changed our lives and the complicated relationship between critics and their subjects.
It also happens to co-star Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt and Scarlett Johansson. Which is never bad.
A clip from the film has now come online and, in 90 seconds, perfectly encompasses everything that makes the film so good. Watch the new Chef movie clip below. Read More »
Eli Roth‘s new film, The Green Inferno, is ugly. That’s by design — it’s not just a horror movie, but a film made in the mold of super-shockers like Cannibal Holocaust. Though the cannibal movie has largely passed out of fashion, Roth goes as far as he can with The Green Inferno, which drops an idealistic group of college-age activists in a Peruvian jungle. There they attempt to stop rapacious corporate clear-cutting. But things go wrong, and the kids end up deep in the Amazon, facing the violent tendencies of the very natives they hoped to help. Check out the first Green Inferno trailer, which is more tease than anything else, below.

Jon Favreau returns to his roots with the upcoming comedy Chef. He wrote, directed and starred in the film, which tells the story of a chef who tackles his own independent food truck after being unhappy with his more traditional restaurant job. The film is a far cry from Favreau’s latest work, the Iron Man films and Cowboys and Aliens. That’s surely by design. He hasn’t skimped on the talented cast, though, which includes Robert Downey, Jr., Sofia Vergara, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt,and Scarlett Johansson.
The film opens May 9, check out the Chef trailer below. Read More »

Briefly: After taking a bit of time to beat up Nazis and dabble in TV, Eli Roth is returning to his feature directing work next year with The Green Inferno. Open Road Films has just scheduled the cannibal horror pic to open on September 4, 2014. The only other film currently set to open that day is Addicted, a sex addiction drama starring Boris Kodjoe.
Written by Roth and Guillermo Amoedo, The Green Inferno follows a group of New York City student activists who head into the Amazon jungle to save a remote tribe from extinction. Once they get there, however, they discover that the people they’re trying to protect are a bunch of cannibals who want to eat them. Oops. Lorenza Isso, Ariel Levy, and Daryl Sabara star. [TheWrap]

Even though most of us have chosen to forget it, the Paranormal Activity spoof A Haunted House starring Marlon Wayans actually came out earlier this year. Not only that, it grossed $60 million worldwide against a budget of $2.5 million, making it a bonafide hit. Who knew?
The studio knew, that’s who, and they’ve already shot a follow up. A Haunted House 2 directed by Michael Tiddes is scheduled for release March 28, 2014 and a teaser trailer is now out. The plot is genius. Wayans’ character moves out of his one haunted house to…wait for it…another haunted house! Hilarity ensues.
