Beyond the Brick Trailer

Lego is the biggest, most successful toy company in the world. But it wasn’t always that way. Just a decade ago, the company was in danger of failing. New leadership had to redirect and refocus the brand before it began to soar. Then, with last year’s release of The Lego Movie, Lego was brought to the mainstream in a way it never had been before.

Before that even happened, filmmakers Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge were on the ground floor. They were documenting the world of Lego for a film now called A Lego Brickumentary (It was formerly called Beyond the Brick: A Lego Brickumentary.) The film hit the festival circuit last year but is now set for nationwide release, both in theaters and online, on July 31. The first trailer for the film, which is narrated by Jason Bateman, is now online and it’s a must watch not only for fans of Lego, but people who just don’t get the appeal, which is surely lots of you.

Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw

Jake Gyllenhaal has had a really excellent run over these past few years, culminating in a career-best performance with Nightcrawler. But it’s not over. He seems poised to continue his winning streak with Southpaw, if the first trailer is any indication.

He begins the painful process of putting his life back together the only way he knows how, by re-entering the ring.

Rachel McAdams plays his beautiful wife, Forest Whitaker his strict coach, and Oona Laurence his cute kid. Check out the Southpaw trailer after the jump. Read More »

No Escape Trailer

The Weinstein Company have released the trailer for their international thriller No Escape. No, this isn’t the big screen adaptation of Dan Trachtenberg’s Portal: No Escape you’ve been hoping for… The story follows Owen Wilson‘s family who move to Southeast Asia to suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, and must escape as rebels attack the city. The story sounds like a grounded character thriller but the trailer focuses on big moments of action you might not expect from that logline. The film is from Quarantine/Devil director John Erick Dowdle, and co-stars Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell. Watch the No Escape trailer now embedded after the jump.

new Halloween movie

Michael Myers never stays dead for too long, and now he’s returning to the big screen. Dimension films has revived efforts to make a new Halloween film. The first step in the process is to hire Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who together wrote several Saw movies (specifically the latter four films), to write the script for the new film. But what is this Halloween going to be? Reportedly, it will be a “recalibration,” which seems like a single-word replacement for “we’re not sure yet.” Read More »
