We’re a week and a half away from the opening of Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. The buzz is strong for the director’s horror-romance, but it’s still a financial gamble. Del Toro’s film is an original, R-rated period piece, which are never a sure thing at the box-office. Then again, there’s nothing else quite like Crimson Peak coming out anytime soon, so maybe that’ll be enough to draw general audiences in. It’s a very good, beautifully directed movie — and a Crimson Peak clip, a handful of features and TV spots highlight the beauty of del Toro’s latest. Check them out after the jump.

Like the seasonal return of locusts, Nicolas Sparks is back. It would be unfair to call Sparks movies a plague — there’s an audience for every movie — but films based on Sparks novels are certainly numerous, and now there’s one more that you can struggle to distinguish from the rest. The new film is The Choice, which features Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, and Tom Welling in the story of a romance that spans years and tries to overcome tragedy.
The Choice trailer showcases so many of the elements we’ve come to take as given in a Sparks movie: pretty young leads, a romantic triangle, golden North Carolina landscapes, and that one horrible event that changes everything. Check out the footage below. Read More »

Earlier this summer, Gaspar Noé’s brought his controversial romance Love to Cannes as an out of competition entry, and since then it’s been making the rounds at Toronto and Athens. But soon this erotic, X-rated, 3D film will be coming to limited theaters, and the first Love trailer has just arrived to tease the arousing story.
The story follows Karl Glusman as Murphy, a young man who ends up on a journey trying to find his missing girlfriend, reflecting on the two years they spent together. The trailer after the jump doesn’t have any nudity, so it’s mostly safe for work, however, at the bottom of the page we’ve included some NSFW clips, so beware of scrolling too far down. Read More »

When you’re single and lonely, it can feel like the whole world is full of smug couples judging you for your solo status. In Yorgos Lanthimos‘ The Lobster, they literally are. Singlehood is a crime in this society, and those caught committing it are given 45 days to find a mate, or else be turned into an animal of their choosing.
It’s an absurd premise, but we’d expect no less from the director of Dogtooth. In this strange dystopia, David (Colin Farrell) meets and falls for a woman from another community, where coupledom is strictly forbidden. Watch The Lobster trailer after the jump. Read More »

Romantic comedies usually don’t impress me. They’re just not my cup of tea unless I really like the on-screen talent involved. More often than not it’s the indie romantic comedies that bring something fresh enough to shake up the subgenre to make it entertaining and sincere, and that’s exactly what happens with Sleeping with Other People.
The Sundance selected movie from Bachelorette writer and director Leslye Headland features Alison Brie and Jason Sudeikis as two two sex addicts unable to commit to real relationships who decide to hold each other accountable for their destructive behavior and strike up quite the strong bond. So strong that they begin to act like a couple, even though they’re not, and you know what that means
This is an R-rated romantic comedy so the new Sleeping with Other People red band trailer is the best way to get the right vibe from this hilarious, authentic romance. Watch the new trailer below! Read More »
One of my favorite films from this year’s Sundance Film Festival was the raunchy romantic comedy Sleeping with Other People, starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie. Thankfully, IFC Films picked up the indie from the festival, and you’ll be able to see it in theaters in just a few weeks.
In the meantime, a new international trailer for the film has just surfaced, and be prepared to watch it somewhere privately, because even though it’s not an official red band trailer, it’s still a little NSFW, due to some pretty risque conversation topics. The major culprit is Sudeikis explaining to Brie how to touch herself in a very intimate way.
