The Lobster (1)

We’ve got all kinds of romances at the cinema this year. Love is blossoming amid zombie apocalypses and inspiring superpowered vengeance and overcoming Nicholas Sparks-ian brushes with death. But when it comes to sheer weirdness, all of these love stories pale in comparison to Yorgos Lanthimos‘ The Lobster, which is set in a world where singletons who can’t find a mate within 45 days are turned into an animal of their choosing.

Colin Farrell leads The Lobster as sad-sack David, who’s just been left by his wife. He’s whisked away to an idyllic retreat for single people, all of whom have come with the same goal in mind: find a “well matched” spouse so they don’t have to spend the rest of their lives as a dog, or a horse, or in David’s case, a lobster. And that’s just the starting point for the surreal joy and pain that unfolds. Watch The Lobster U.S. trailer below.  Read More »

super bowl movie trailers

The Super Bowl is the ultimate expression of the American id: a game where people hit each other really hard, advertisements for cheese flavored chips, extravagant halftime shows put on with colorful panache, and, of course, trailers for the biggest, loudest movies coming within the next year.

I kid because I love. The Super Bowl is ridiculous and the ads are ridiculous and the culture surrounding it is ridiculous, but it’s a good time. Plus, even when the game stinks (and last night’s game really stunk), you get to watch a whole bunch of movie trailers that have to be good because movie studios spent an exorbitant amount of money to buy this ad space. And if there’s one thing more American than the Super Bowl, it’s devoting a few thousand words to breaking down all of the noteworthy spots that premiered during last night’s game.

Keanu Green Band Trailer

With last month’s red-band trailer, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele‘s Keanu went from an unknown quantity to one of our most anticipated comedies of the year. In part, this was because Keanu looks like nothing so much as a feature-length version of a Key and Peele sketch: original and hilarious and brilliantly insightful about society’s expectations of black men. But mostly, if we’re being totally honest, it was because of that cat. Just look at those fuzzy little paws and those big wide eyes. How can you not fall in love with him?

Well, maybe if you didn’t get to see the first trailer because it was NSFW. Fortunately, for those who’ve yet to succumb to Keanu’s charms, a new green-band trailer has just arrived. Now the whole family can get together to coo over this pint-sized bundle of sheer cute. Watch the Keanu green-band trailer after the jump.  Read More »

daredevil season 2 teaser

Today marks the start of the Chinese New Year, so you know what that means: a new Daredevil season 2 teaser! Well, that’s seemingly what went through the heads of the marketing people at Netflix, who decided that cross-section of people who celebrate this holiday and binge-watch Marvel superhero shows must be large enough to warrant a special teaser trailer. There’s not too much going on here, but it does feature a brief vocal cameo from Jon Bernthal‘s Frank Castle (otherwise known as the Punisher), so you already know whether or not you want to click play on the video below.

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates trailer

One of the recurring themes of 2016 is going to be Zac Efron, comedy star. The High School Musical alum has not one, not two, but three separate comedies coming out this year. The first, Dirty Grandpa, has already come and gone, and this summer brings Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.

Efron leads the latter as the titular Dave, while Adam DeVine plays Mike. As the title suggests, the Stangle brothers need wedding dates. Their hard-partying ways have ruined every family gathering, and their dad (Stephen Root) figures a couple of sweet girls will help keep them in line at their sister’s wedding. They end up with Tatiana (Aubrey Plaza) and Alice (Anna Kendrick), who turn out to be much, much more than they bargained for. Watch the first Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates trailer after the jump.  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 revisit an Oscar contender, hit the backyards of Southern California for some real punk, get weird with some dudes who want to blow your mind, get weirder with some mermaids from Poland, and get real serious at a family reunion that may end violently.

Demolition trailer

How do you mourn the death of a spouse you never really loved, who represented a life that you never really wanted? If you’re like Davis, the character played by Jake Gyllenhaal in Jean-Marc Vallée‘s Demolition, you start by writing a series of long, rambly, bizarrely confessional letters to the company behind the vending machine that failed to spit out the peanut M&Ms you paid for.

And because Demolition is an indie dramedy, those letters eventually lead Davis to a sympathetic customer service rep, Karen (Naomi Watts), who, along with her rambunctious son Chris (Judah Lewis), may be just what Davis needs to destroy his life so he can rebuild it again. Demolition is making its way into theaters this spring after debuting at TIFF last year, and you can watch the new trailer after the jump.  Read More »

creative control trailer

The best thing I can say about Creative Control is that it would make a terrific double feature with Spike Jonze’s Her. This near-future slice of quasi-science fiction is a very funny and occasionally chilling look at what happens when the amazing technology within our grasp collides with the fact that human beings are, in general, Big Dumb Selfish Idiots.

Creative Control was snatched up from the 2015 SXSW Film Festival by Amazon Studios and Magnolia and they’ve just released the first trailer. Put this one on your radar.

Ice Age Collision Course trailer

Just as no one could have predicted back in 2001 that The Fast and the Furious would be the start of a box office juggernaut spanning ten installments across two decades, it seems doubtful anyone in 2002 would’ve guessed Ice Age would spawn a major movie franchise. And yet here we are in 2016, eyeballing a new trailer for the fifth film in the series, Ice Age: Collision Course.

While Ice Age has never been the buzziest of properties, these films are nothing if not reliable. They arrive every three or four years to tepid reviews, and then proceed to absolutely crush it at the box office. The four films so far have grossed a collective $2.8 billion worldwide; only a fool would bet against the fifth one becoming one of this year’s big commercial hits. So what do you and the children in your life have to look forward to this summer? Watch the new Ice Age: Collision Course trailer after the jump.  Read More »
