Gotti trailer

John Travolta (Pulp Fiction, American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson) has been wanting to star in a movie about 1980s New York City crime boss John “The Teflon Don” Gotti since 2011, and after going through multiple iterations and spending years in development hell, the film is finally ready. Here, at long last, is the first trailer for Gotti, which ended up being directed by Kevin Connolly: yep, the guy who played “E” on HBO’s Entourage. And weirdly, this movie seems like a fake film you’d see in the background of an Entourage episode.

Pitch Perfect 3 trailer

The marketing for Pitch Perfect 3 is referring to this as “last call,” so there’s a chance that this truly is the final time audiences will be able to hang out with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and the rest of the Bellas. And while this new trailer for the sequel promises a film that’s just as enjoyable as the first two, it might actually be a good idea for this franchise to go out on top after the curtain falls here, because it seems like it’s reached its natural conclusion.

Jack Ryan TV show teaser

Update: A new Jack Ryan teaser has been released by Amazon ahead of the full teaser trailer premiere at New York Comic Con.

Shows about spies have been a near-constant presence on television since the medium’s early days, and while we’ve seen properties like Get Smart and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. make the jump to the big screen in recent years, Amazon is about to reverse that trend by bringing one of cinema’s biggest spies to TV. The company has just released the first brief teaser for Jack Ryan, based on the Tom Clancy-created character that’s appeared in five movies so far, and you can check it out below. But if you’re looking for your first glimpse at The Office star John Krasinski locked and loaded as the title character, you’ll have to wait just a little while longer.

Maze Runner The Death Cure Trailer

Fans have been patiently waiting to see the concluding chapter of the Maze Runner trilogy after Dylan O’Brien was injured during a stunt gone wrong while the film was shooting in 2016. Originally set for release earlier this year, Maze Runner: The Death Cure is now coming to theaters in February of 2018, and the first trailer has just been unleashed.

At the end of Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) was preparing to take the fight to WCKD to rescue Minho, kill Dr. Ava Paige (Patricia Clarkson), and bring the rebel group The Right Arm and the rest of his fellow Gladers with him. The first Maze Runner The Death Cure trailer, which debuted during the finale of Teen Wolf on MTV, shows us that Thomas isn’t screwing around anymore. Read More »

cook off trailer

It’s the heyday of TV series like Chopped and The Great British Bake Off, so it seems like there’s no better time for a mockumentary film about the lives of quirky small-town cooking competitors.

Ironically, Melissa McCarthy‘s comedy Cook Off! is a movie that has been long in the development oven, originally made a decade ago before being shelved in 2007. Now Lionsgate has picked up the film and re-edited it for 2017 consumption. Hopefully the jokes haven’t expired by now.

Steven Spielberg Documentary Trailer

There aren’t too many filmmakers who general audiences know by name. But if there’s one name still making movies today that they’ll recognize the most, it’s Steven Spielberg.

The man has been behind the movie magic and suspense of Jaws and Jurassic Park, the wonder of Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, the adventure and action of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Minority Report, and the powerful drama of The Color Purple and Schindler’s List. Now he’s getting in front of the camera for an extensive documentary profile on HBO that is simply called Spielberg, and the first trailer not only has the man himself, but it also features an impressive array of talent talking about the Oscar-winning filmmaker and his undeniable influence on cinema at large.

Watch the Steven Spielberg documentary trailer below. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?

This week we scratch our chins trying to figure out what we just watched, get the band back together at Riot Fest, ask the dangerous question about whether there’s a link between vaccinations and autism, sit in awe by the sheer power of sight and sound, and feel transported by a story about young love and the mafia.

1922 trailer

Stephen King is everywhere these days. In fact, he’s sitting right behind you as you read this. Okay, maybe that’s not true. But adaptations of King’s work have increased tenfold in the last year, and that was before It went ahead and made all the moneys. With It taking in boffo box office, expect even more King adaptations to be announced. For now, though, there’s 1922, which is one of two different Netflix King adaptations on the horizon. The first 1922 trailer is below.

The Commuter teaser trailer

Earlier this month, we were treated to the first teaser for Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra‘s newest action thriller The Commuter, which reunites him with his frequent collaborator Liam Neeson (Non-Stop, Unknown, Run All Night). That trailer featured a small glimpse at the blend of goofiness and deadly seriousness with which Collet-Serra tends to approach genre movies like these, but a new international teaser has just come out, and this thing makes me want to inject the film directly into my veins as soon as possible.
