Our Kind of Traitor Trailer

Although the adaptation of John le Carré‘s spy thriller Our Kind of Traitor has been in the can since 2014, the film has taken a little while to make it to the big screen. But our friends across the pond will finally get a chance to see it this spring, and the first trailer finds Ewan McGregor and Naomie Harris (Skyfall) in the wrong place at the wrong time, suddenly caught up in a struggle between a Russian mafia money launderer (Stellan Skarsgard), a ruthless MI6 agent (Damian Lewis) and the British government.

the invitation trailer

If you’re the kind of person who already hates parties and social gatherings, Karyn Kusama‘s The Invitation is going to press your buttons in a very specific and unsettling way. This small-scale, slow-burning, intense gem is a special kind of cinematic nightmare – the one-location thriller where escape simply isn’t an option.

Drafthouse Films has released a new trailer for The Invitation and it’s a good one, playing up the film’s mystery and tension while side-stepping its various twists and turns.

house of cards season 4 trailer

I’ve joked a few times about Netflix‘s approach to marketing the fourth season of House of Cards, which has mostly entailed them nothing at all. There has been some viral marketing and some vague teasers, but otherwise, the the streaming service’s flagship series has been awfully quiet for a pop culture juggernaut that is less than a month away.

And right on cue, the first proper House of Cards season 4 trailer has arrived. Don’t give Netflix too much credit, though – this is still very much a teaser. They know they have a built-in audience for this show no matter what they show off in previews.

The Invitation Drafthouse

I had to include Karyn Kusama‘s The Invitation on my most anticipated movies of 2016 list. Even though I have already seen the film, I had to give it a shout-out. Kusama’s dramatic thriller is an excellent movie, a story that’s bound to grow richer on repeat viewings. With The Invitation opening in theaters next month, Drafthouse Films is kindly letting us debut the poster for the film.

Check out The Invitation poster below.

10 cloverfield lane viral marketing

A viral campaign for 10 Cloverfield Lane has begun, and it seems to connect directly with the augmented reality game (ARG) for Matt Reeves‘ original Cloverfield. Earlier this month we explained how Tagruato (the Japanese drilling company that produced Slusho that was likely responsible for unleashing the Cloverfield monster on New York City) had new activity on the interwebs. Well, now the official company website has posted an update that directly connects the backstory for 10 Cloverfield Lane to the original Cloverfield. While I’m pretty sure that this backstory isn’t explicitly explored in the movie, I’ll let you choose if you want to learn more.

High-Rise trailer

Tom Hiddleston is one of the few Marvel stars sitting out this summer’s Captain America: Civil War, but he might have something even better up his sleeve. This spring brings the release of Ben Wheatley‘s High-Rise, in which he plays a doctor named Robert Laing who moves into a high-end apartment building. He’s seduced by the easy luxury of life in the tower, which seemingly has everything a young man could need.

But tension and unease are brewing between the classes, and a charismatic provocateur named Wilder (Luke Evans) is fanning the flames of revolution. Full-fledged chaos breaks out, and Laing finds himself swept up as well. Watch the latest High-Rise trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Untitled Next Bourne Chapter

Up until now, Bourne 5 has been almost as big a mystery as its amnesiac hero. We’ve known it would feature the return of Matt Damon as Jason Bourne, as well as the return of Bourne Supremacy and Bourne Ultimatum director Paul Greengrass to the director’s chair, but not it would look like, or what the plot would be, or even what it would be called.

But that all changed during Super Bowl 50. Universal unveiled the first look at the next chapter in the Bourne series, and even gave it a brand-new title: Jason Bourne. Watch the Jason Bourne Super Bowl spot after the jump.  Read More »

10 Cloverfield Lane

Last month, Bad Robot cracked open a mystery box we didn’t even know existed. The first teaser trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane would’ve looked promising under any circumstance, what with its vaguely creepy premise and stellar cast (John GoodmanMary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher Jr.). But the title added an extra layer of intrigue. Was this the Cloverfield sequel fans had been waiting for? If not, what connection, if any, could the new film have to Cloverfield?

We’ll have our answers sooner rather than later, as 10 Cloverfield Lane is scheduled to hit theaters in a little over a month. But in the meantime, Paramount devoted some (very expensive) time during the Super Bowl to give curious audiences some more material to mull over.

Interstellar Cinematographer

Christopher Nolan‘s next movie, the World War II action thriller Dunkirk, will already serve as a reunion for several of the filmmakers previous collaborators.
