Gus Van Sant‘s Sea of Trees premiered almost a year ago at the Cannes Film Festival. The drama, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe, wasn’t particularly well received. Booing from critics was reported, but you can’t really take booing, especially at the Cannes Film Festival, seriously. Plus, what kind of an adult really feels the need to boo after a movie?
Roadside Attractions picked up Sea of Trees for U.S. distribution, but a release date has yet to be set. The film is opening in Japan soon, though, so a foreign Sea of Trees trailer has just been made available.

Suicide Squad stole the show at Comic-Con this summer with an excellent first trailer, but hasn’t revealed any new footage since, and we’ve yet to see any footage at all from Wonder Woman, which just began shooting last month.

And while internet commenters the world over were going through this thing shot-by-shot, director Tim Miller was sitting down to answer all (well, most) of your pressing questions. Let’s check out this official Deadpool trailer breakdown.
