Kate Winslet in Triple 9

What do you get when you combine John Hillcoat, the talented director of Lawless and The Road; an A-list ensemble cast that includes Woody HarrelsonCasey AffleckChiwetel Ejiofor, and Kate Winslet; and more dirty-cop tropes than you can shake a stick at? The answer is Triple 9, a gritty crime thriller that lands in theaters next weekend. The Black List script by Matt Cook centers on a group of corrupt officers blackmailed by the mob into pulling off an insane heist. They decide the only way to pull it off is to kill one of their own, but suffice it to say things don’t go as planned.

Open Road Films has come in just under the wire with one last Triple 9 trailer, just as the first Triple 9 reviews have hit the web. Watch the latest promo, and find out what the critics are saying about Hillcoat’s caper, after the jump.  Read More »

Mother's Day trailer

Apparently at some point in the past decade, Garry Marshall decided he could not rest until he’d turned every major holiday into a middling ensemble romcom. Having already put out Valentine’s Day and New Year’s Eve, he’s now turned his attention to Mother’s Day. This one stars Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Jason Sudeikis as a loosely interconnected group of people with all kinds of mommy issues. Watch the first Mother’s Day trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Triple 9 Trailer

In what appears to be a mix of Training Day, Sicario and Inside Man, a new trailer for the action thriller Triple 9 has just debuted. And with a story that feels very familiar, it’s the star-studded cast that seems to makes this one worth watching. Casey Affleck plays a rookie cop joining a crew of dirty cops who have blackmailed to pull off a heist for the Russian mob. No one can be trusted, and someone is probably going to die. Watch below!

Spotlight trailer

Writer-director Tom McCarthy has had one bizarre year. He wrote and directed one of the year’s finest films, Spotlight, and also The Cobbler — a movie so strange and tonally troubled you must watch it. McCarthy, to my surprise, also had a role in this summer’s Pixels. The man keeps busy. But Spotlight is the movie everyone keeps talking about, and for good reason. It’s an all around excellent film, with an efficient script, taught direction, and quietly riveting performances.

After the jump, watch Tom McCarthy break down a Spotlight scene.

Fifty Shades of Black Red Band Trailer

Just when you thought you were safe from the parody movies of Marlon Wayans, the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Black arrived last month. The comedy is a parody of the popular Fifty Shades of Grey, with Wayans taking the title role of Mr. Black, who begins a provocative sexual relationship with an innocent reporter (Kali Hawk).

Now a new Fifty Shades of Black red band trailer has arrived, and along with the goofiness of the spoof this time comes some real raunchy comedy and plenty of f-bombs, making this NSFW. While this doesn’t look like it’s a quality parody, I will say this one at least looks better than all of the previous Wayans parodies (with the exception of the first Scary Movie). Read More »

Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind LawlessThe Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red Band Trailer now after the jump.
