The Ivory Game Trailer

Leonardo DiCaprio has been rather vocal when it comes to fighting for environmental issues. He’s produced several documentaries about climate change, clean energy and more such as The 11th Hour, Catching the Sun and Before the Flood. Now he’s turned his attention to the threat of extinction facing African elephants due to the illegal ivory trade around the world.

Directors Richard Ladkani (The Devil’s Miner) and Kief Davidson (A LEGO Brickumentary) spent 16 months with a team of intelligence operatives, undercover activists, passionate frontline rangers and tough-as-nails conservationists to infiltrate the corrupt global network of ivory trafficking. The result is The Ivory Game, a documentary of this surprisingly dangerous criminal underworld that shows the total lack of respect given to some of the most majestic animals on the planet, all for some rich jerks.

Amy Adams in Nocturnal Animals trailer

The new Nocturnal Animals trailer is so decadently gorgeous, you’d think it was a Tom Ford ad. And, well, technically it is — but it’s not for one of his fragrances or clothing lines. Nocturnal Animals is the new film by Ford, the fashion designer who made his feature directing debut on A Single Man.

This one stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal as a divorced couple who’ve been estranged for many years. But their shared past comes rushing back to the forefront when Edward sends Susan a manuscript of his latest novel, a dark thriller about a family assaulted one night on a deserted West Texas road. Cutting between Susan’s life and the story in Edward’s novel, Ford weaves together a riveting tale of love, betrayal, and revenge. Watch the Nocturnal Animals trailer below. Read More »

Barry teaser trailer

In the final year of his presidency, Barack Obama has been the subject of not one but two movies about his formative years. The first, Southside With You, premiered at Sundance and opened in theaters in August. The second, Barry, landed a few weeks later at TIFF and is now headed to Netflix before the end of the year.

Set in the early 1980s, Barry picks up with a young Barack Obama just as he’s embarking on his junior year of college at Columbia University. The tricky task of playing Obama goes to Devon Terrell, an Aussie actor whose only major screen credit to date is a failed HBO pilot, and by all accounts he acquits himself quite nicely. Also starring are Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) as his college girlfriend, Ashley Judd as his mother, and Ellar Coltrane (Boyhood) and Jason Mitchell (Straight Outta Compton) as some of his friends. Watch the Barry teaser trailer below.  Read More »

logan hugh jackman

The first trailer for Logan arrived this morning and it’s safe to say that the look and feel of this movie is unlike any other X-Men movie. Director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman seem intent on bringing the saga of Wolverine to a definitive and dramatic close, complete with a trailer that is as solemn as it is exciting.

We’re still in the early days of the film’s marketing and much about the movie remains under wraps, but there’s still a lot to dig into here. Let’s comb through that trailer shot-by-shot and frame-by-frame and see what we can discover. Speculation, and maybe accidental spoilers, follow.

Doctor Strange Clips

Last night, a bunch of members of the press saw Doctor Strange, and while the reviews are still under embargo, a bunch of initial reactions hit Twitter last night praising the visual spectacle, the incredible action, and Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. It doesn’t sound like it blows any of our favorites from the Marvel cinematic universe out of the water, but it should be a great franchise starter for another Marvel hero.

If all of the early reactions have you hungry to see the movie, we have a couple Doctor Strange clips that should hold you over. One of them features more Rachel McAdams than we’ve seen in the entirety of the trailers, displaying the somewhat complicated relationship history that her character has with Strange. Meanwhile, the other clip has a frustrated Strange listening to what he regards as spiritual nonsense from Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One. Read More »

Arrival Trailer - Amy Adams

It’s a good time to be a sci-fi fan. Sure, there’s all the comic book and superhero movies out there right now, but more importantly there are shows like Westworld on HBO and movies like Arrival on the way. After premiering to rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival, the new sci-fi drama from Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve is on the way next month, and one quick final trailer gives us one more tease of what’s in store. Thankfully, it doesn’t give away any of the mystery. If anything it only makes the mystery even more enticing.

a cure for wellness trailer

With the original Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, director Gore Verbinski proved himself so adept at orchestrating globally popular blockbusters that it often looked like the world of big budget franchise filmmaking had swallowed him whole. While I’ve mostly enjoyed his excursions into the world of big budgets and movie stars (I even have a soft spot for The Lone Ranger!), I could never shake the gut feeling that 2002’s The Ring was his best movie and that his instincts as a filmmaker made him a perfect match for horror in general.

Lo and behold, here’s the trailer for A Cure For Wellness, which finds Verbinski returning to the genre that helped solidify his career. And it certainly has my attention.

Logan trailer

Hugh Jackman has been playing Wolverine for the past 16 years. To give you a sense of just how long that is, he’s been in that role before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was even a twinkle in Disney’s eye. He’s lasted through two different Batmen, two different Supermen, and three different Spider-Men. Heck, he even managed to stay on when his own franchise rebooted itself with X-Men: First Class.

But everything’s gotta come to an end sometime. Next year brings Jackman’s next and last performance as the mutant superhero, in the Wolverine solo movie Logan. Directed by James Mangold, the new movie sees Wolverine as we’ve never seen him before: as an old and ailing man. The first Logan trailer has just arrived, and you can watch it below.

UPDATE: The Logan red-band trailer is also here, and you can watch it below.  Read More »

We’re days away from MondoCon 2016, the annual celebration pop culture art organized by the good folks at Mondo, and previews from this year’s show have already been invading the internet. We’ve played our part, having debuted Kevin Tong’s new poster inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Ran last week and interviewed artist Todd Slater (and showed off his new The Secret of NIMH print) earlier today. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as other stunning posters have already made their way online in advance of the show. Let’s run through ’em.

Resident Evil The Final Chapter Trailer - Milla Jovovich

Much like the long life of the Fast and Furious franchise, it’s hard to believe that early next year we’ll be getting the sixth film in the Resident Evil franchise. While the film series based on the video games of the same name hasn’t really found the same massive audience after starting back in 2002, there are still plenty of fans eager to see how it all ends.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter appears to be pulling out all the stops this time as a new international trailer shows even more absolutely batshit insane action sequences featuring hordes of zombies, giant winged-creatures, and villainous corporate executives talking menacingly in board rooms at the Umbrella Corporation headquarters. It’s exactly what you would expect from director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s latest contribution to the franchise.
