Brigsby Bear

The time has come for you to meet Brigsby Bear. The indie comedy that made a splash at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year has slowly been rolling out to more cities. Right now it’s only in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Washington DC, but it arrives in even more cities like San Diego, Austin, Minneapolis, Philadephia and more, this weekend.

Once the movie is playing in your city, you must seek it out immediately. It’s one of the best movies of the year and explores the power of storytelling and fandom in a fascinating, touching way. Not only is Brigsby Bear hilarious, but it’s also charming as hell. A big part of the charm comes from how genuine Kyle Mooney plays his character James, who is obsessed with the TV show Brigsby Bear Adventures, a strange blend of Teddy Ruxpin, Star Trek and educational children’s programming.

Now you can see part of an episode of Brigsby Bear Adventures yourself with a retro clip from the show surfacing online. Read More »

Call Me By Your Name Trailer

While plenty of our favorite films from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival have been hitting theaters over the summer, from the odd but charming Brigsby Bear to the breakout indie hit The Big Sick, there are still a few that have been held back from release. One of those movies is a wonderful coming-of-age romance set in Italy in 1983, and the first trailer has finally arrived.

Call Me By Your Name focuses on a 17-year old boy named Elio (Timothée Chalamet) spending the summer in his family’s villa, spending his time playing classical music, reading, swimming or flirting with his friend Marzia. But when a handsome, charming 24-year old American doctoral student named Oliver (Armie Hammer) moves into the house as an intern for Elio’s professor father (Michael Stuhlbarg), his fascination with the twentysomething man leads him to a personal discovery that will change his life forever.

Brigsby Bear

This weekend brings the charming, quirky indie Brigsby Bear to select theaters before it expands for a wider release as the summer winds down. The movie follows a young man who tries to cope with a massive change in his life by taking solace in his love for a television show that he grew up with called Brigsby Bear Adventures. That’s really all we can tell you without spoiling an interesting turn that happens 15 minutes into the movie, something that the marketing of the movie has tried to avoid directly revealing.

If you want to know more about the story, you can read about it in our full review from the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year (again, beware of spoiling a certain story point revealed early on), but if you’d rather learn more about the fictional bear at the center of the movie, then we have something you’ll want to check out below.

Brigsby Bear Trailer

When the /Film crew attended the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, one of our favorite movies was the comedy Brigsby Bear. The film hails from Saturday Night Live sketch director Dave McCary and cast member Kyle Mooney, and a new trailer finally digs a little deeper into what makes this quirky comedy so damn good.

However, we want to point out that while the new Brigsby Bear trailer gives away a little more of the story than the teaser trailer did, it still doesn’t come right out and explain the catalyst for the film’s story (though it’s not difficult to figure out). Personally, I think the movie is better experienced if you go in knowing as little as possible, but if you’re not worried about ruining an interesting turn in the story that happens within the first 10-15 minutes, then just keep on reading after the video. Otherwise, just watch the Brigsby Bear trailer and then go about your day. Read More »

Brigsby Bear Trailer

After debuting at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the first trailer for the quirky indie comedy Brigsby Bear has arrived, and it’s perfectly weird. Just like the movie.

Just in case the marketing campaign somehow manages to keep certain details about the narrative under wraps, we’ll leave certain story points below the trailer, since they don’t reveal any key pieces of information just yet. So if you want to go into this movie completely blind, don’t read anything below the Brigsby Bear trailer embed. You’ve been warned! Read More »

the silent man

Liam Neeson speaks with a low, hushed tones in the clip for the aptly titled The Silent Man, a film based on the life of Mark Felt, the high-ranking FBI informant revealed to be the infamous “Deep Throat” in the President Richard Nixon Watergate scandal that was chronicles in the Best Picture nominated 1976 film All the President’s Men.

Brigsby Bear Clip - Mark Hamill

The first teaser poster for Brigsby Bear arrived yesterday, introducing us to Kyle Mooney as James Pope and his favorite TV show star, the titular space-trekking bear who taught him math and life lessons all throughout his formative years. Of course, all of this happened while living he was living in a bunker, secluded from the irradiated Earth above ground.

Now we get to see a Brigsby Bear clip, which features Kyle Mooney having a chat with the man who he believes to be his father, played by Mark Hamill. They’re sitting in a dome with a scenic view that keeps them safe from the poisoned environment outside of their sealed home. It’s a fairly normal chat that an insecure kid might have with their father about the world around us, but it’s made all the more strange when you see what the world looks like outside the dome.

Brigsby Bear

One of the standout movies from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival was an indie comedy called Brigsby Bear. The film is led by Saturday Night Live cast member Kyle Mooney, who stars as a twentysomething young man named James Pope who has spent his life growing up in a bunker, raised by his parents and watching a kids TV show known as Brigsby Bear, the only form of entertainment available to him.

However, James has his life thrown into upheaval when authorities raid the bunker and he learns that his parents are actually two strangers who kidnapped him as a baby. Struggling to adapt to the real world that he’s been isolated from his whole life, he takes solace in tapes of the TV show that he’s collected over the years, and it just might be the best way for him to cope with his stolen life. That might sound pretty serious, but this is undoubtedly a comedy, albeit one with a touching emotional core that’s all about the power of storytelling.

Now the first teaser poster has arrived, give us a new look at Kyle Mooney and his beloved childhood TV pal, Brigsby Bear. If you like 1980s style portraits that used to be taken at the mall, you’ll love this poster. Read More »
