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.

End of Watch director and Training Day writer David Ayer takes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, and Olivia Williams to the mean streets of Atlanta for the violent DEA story Sabotage. Arnie leads a DEA crew that gets into trouble when millions of dollars go missing after a huge cartel bust. (Or what looks like a bust, at least.) Worthington, slightly disguised with a shaved head, Enos, and Howard are part of his crew, and Williams is a local detective who is looking into cartel activity and murders.
While Schwarzenegger’s movies haven’t done big business since he really got back into the game, he was the most entertaining part of Escape Plan (he was really doing some acting, and had a great stretch of performance in German), and here he’s in super-serious mode, which could be a good time.

3D trailers are great if you’re watching them in a 3D movie theater with your 3D glasses on, but so-called 3D trailers on the Internet usually aren’t anything special. Since the effects don’t work on our computers, most “3D trailers” just turn out to be 2D trailers with action-packed scenes that we can sorta-kinda picture looking exciting in 3D.
But leave it to Robert Rodriguez‘s gleefully over-the-top Machete Kills to go over-the-top with its 3D Internet trailer. No, not even the world’s toughest ex-Federale can make your laptop suddenly support 3D technology. But he can offer a video with explosions so big, they can’t be contained by your average video player. See what we mean after the jump.

Liam Neeson is no stranger to crime pics, but his latest falls very, very far outside the Taken wheelhouse. The Nut Job centers around an intrepid city squirrel (voiced by Will Arnett) who decides to stock up for the winter by robbing a nut store. Neeson voices the villain, a raccoon.
Also lending their voices to the animated comedy are Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, Stephen Lang, Maya Rudolph, and Jeff Dunham. Check out the trailer after the jump.
