Shooter TV Series Trailer

Back in 2007, Mark Wahlberg starred in the feature film Shooter, an action thriller based on the book Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter. The story followed an expert marksman who is called back into action in order to foil a plot to kill the President of the United States of America. But he ends up being framed for the crime instead and ends up on the run. Now Ryan Phillippe is in the lead of a TV series at USA that is bringing the same story to the small screen, and the first trailer has just arrived.

Director Gavin O’Connor (Warrior) last boarded a moving train with Jane Got a Gun, a project that was plagued with problems before he arrived on set. The Western quickly disappeared from theaters this year, but it’s hard to blame O’Connor, who typically delivers quality dramas. The director’s new film, The Accountant, opens in theaters later this year. The thriller stars Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons, Jon Bernthal, Jean Smart, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow.

Hell or High Water

Lately, we’ve seen some trailers that begin with advertisements for the trailer. I don’t understand this trend, but it seems to keep happening. Hell or High Water is the latest trailer to begin with an ad, including shots we see later on in the footage. Why you’d have to sell a trailer to someone who’s already decided to watch it is beyond me, but enough about that. Let’s instead focus on Hell or High Water, the upcoming film from Starred Up and Perfect Sense director David Mackenzie. Mackenzie’s thriller stars Ben FosterChris PineJeff Bridges, and more.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Ben Wheatley is one of the most exciting filmmakers working today and I look forward to each of his movies like a kid looks forward to Christmas. I named Kill List one of my fifteen favorite movies of all time. I think High-Rise, which is currently available on VOD and hits theaters this week, is an astonishing (if divisive) achievement. I have a Sightseers poster on my office wall. I’m in the tank for the man.

So yes, I’m very much looking forward to his next film, Free Fire, which is finished and awaiting a release date as we speak. In the meantime, we can enjoy the first image from the movie, which shows off the awesome ensemble in some colorful duds.

Into the Forest Trailer

Ellen Page has already faced the end of the world as we know it as a mutant in both X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Now she and Evan Rachel Wood will have to deal with humanity turning on itself in the isolated, quiet apocalyptic thriller Into the Forest.

The film from director Patricia Rozema premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, and now it’s coming to theaters and VOD this summer. For all the apocalyptic thrillers that are out there, this one takes a more isolated, intimate approach to the idea of humanity falling apart in the wake of power outages, gas and food shortages and sheer desperation to survive.

godless series

Well, now it’s official: Steven Soderbergh is indeed coming out of retirement. Back in February, the “rumor” was that Soderbergh would return to moviemaking with Logan Lucky, but Soderbergh went on to dismiss the story on his always entertaining Twitter feed. However, the project is both real and moving forward, as a few big actors have just signed up for the heist film.

nerve trailer

The movies have always had a fraught relationship with the internet, depicting the online world as a vile hellscape where there is no hope, only agony and humiliation and maybe even the end of the world. And that’s not an entirely inaccurate description. The whole “the internet is pure evil” thing has been the subject of more than a few science fiction and horror films, with most of them building grand online conspiracies or using technology as the host for some king of supernatural evil. The arrival of a movie like Nerve proves that we’re ready to start talking about really makes the internet such a wretched hive of scum and villainy: other people.

The Nerve trailer is all about Emma Roberts and Dave Franco versus The Internet and c’mon, we all know who’s going to win that particular showdown. The internet devours all.

you were never really here

We’ve reached the point where Joaquin Phoenix deciding to star in a movie is nothing short of an event. He’s picky these days, but that pickiness tends to work out for just about everyone – he works with some of the best and most interesting filmmakers alive and he consistently turns in phenomenal performances. Everybody wins, especially movie fans.

So that brings us to You Were Never Really Here, a thriller that will team Phoenix with director Lynne Ramsay. This news doesn’t bring me to Joaquin Phoenix/Paul Thomas Anderson levels of interest quite yet, but it’s certainly close.
