snowden trailer

Oliver Stone‘s Snowden may seem like an odd fit for Comic-Con, but the controversial filmmaker and his cast took the stage at Hall H earlier today to premiere a new trailer for his Edward Snowden biopic and engage an audience of nerds on topics that are a bit more heated than your average pop culture discussion. The full panel was apparently a weird one (for starters, Stone said that Pokemon Go was a big step toward totalitarianism), but movie itself looks like a fairly straightforward examination of Snowden and his controversial actions. This movie is going to ruin a few family dinners no matter its stance on its subject, so start arming yourself for the inevitable screaming match between you and the people you love by watching the new trailer below.

narcos season 2 trailer

One time I made a joke about having never met a single person in real life who has actually watched Netflix’s crime series Narcos and I instantly regretted it. Narcos fans immediately began to emerge from the woodwork to let me know how much they enjoy the show and how I should give it a chance and so on and so forth. And since I’m fascinated by the drug war and would very much like more Pedro Pascal in my life, I think I may take them up on that suggestion.

Meanwhile, the Narcos season 2 trailer has arrived and while I’m sure it’ll get the dedicated fans properly excited, this is the exact kind of preview that helps pique my interest.

Hell or High Water trailer

Chris Pine and Ben Foster kicked off the year with The Finest Hours, a tale of heroism and survival at sea. Now they’ve reunited for Hell or High Water, which seems like it could have been an alternate title for The Finest Hours but actually has nothing to do with water at all. Instead, the crime drama directed by David Mackenzie (Starred Up, Perfect Sense) centers on two brothers in West Texas who rob a string of banks to keep their family farm from going under.

Before long, their spree catches the attention of the authorities, represented here by two Texas Rangers played by Jeff Bridges and Gil BirminghamHell or High Water got some very good reviews at Cannes earlier this year and is now on its way to U.S. theaters. Check out the latest Hell or High Water trailer after the jump.  Read More »

The Girl on the Train Trailer

Before Gone Girl arrived not too long ago, it had been awhile since there was a juicy, quality thriller of that kind. Now The Help director Tate Taylor is adding another entry in the revitalized field of movies geared towards adults with The Girl on the Train, and it looks like the kind of movie that will keep you guessing right up to the very end.

Emily Blunt plays Rachel Watson, a recently divorced woman who attempts to help the police find a missing woman after witnessing certain activities that she believes may help find her. However, Rachel isn’t the most stable, emotionally or mentally, so when the missing woman ends up sharing a connection with her ex-husband, Rachel may also turn out to be a suspect.

rebirth trailer

One of these days, I’d like to the be kind of person who gets a thrill by looking over numbers and spreadsheets. And on that day, I would like to dig into Netflix‘s business model, which seems to be focused entirely on acquiring as many original movies and shows as possible, building a library that has been fairly consistent in its quality over the years. I’ll never stop giving Netflix a hard time over their dwindling film library, but I find many of the projects they produce and acquire to be worth my time.

And that brings us to Rebirth, the first in a series of low-budget independent projects Netflix has acquired and fully financed for $2 million. For years, movie fans have wondered why major studios were spending $200 million on single movies instead of using that money to finance countless small movies with lower overheads and expectations. Well, Netflix seems to be giving that approach a shot and the first film out of the gate is a creepy cult thriller starring the stoner from The Cabin in the Woods.
