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 spend our summer vacation in France, jump over to Spain to get our heart broken, resurrect the Third Reich for funsies, glow in the saintly aura of Kid ‘n Play, and wash it down with some brew compliments of the state that’s lovingly pronounced by its ex-governor as: CAHL E FOUR KNEE UHHH.

Back in March, we got our first look at AMC’s forthcoming sci-fi drama series Humans. The new series is based on the Swedish show Äkta människor, or Real Humans, and takes place in a world where humanoid robot servants are helping people in their everyday life. But as we’ve seen many times before, these creations won’t stay our servants for long.
Now a better look at the forthcoming series has arrived with a little bit of footage from the show that hits AMC in June. It’s nothing we haven’t seen from similar stories before, but with a cast that includes William Hurt, Katherine Parkinson, Tom Goodman-Hill, Gemma Chan and more, hopefully AMC has another hit show on their hands. Watch the second Humans teaser trailer below! Read More »
Even though director Josh Trank is no longer on board the second Star Wars Anthology film, which is reportedly about Boba Fett, we’re still hoping for the best when it comes to his reboot of Fantastic Four at 20th Century Fox. So far the trailers have painted a pretty serious picture for the comic book property that isn’t exactly known for being dark and gritty, so this will likely be very different from the previous big screen iteration of the super powered quartet.
Now a new international trailer has surfaced that’s almost identical to the previous domestic trailer we saw, but there are some bits of new footage of our heroes showing off their powers (which we also saw shown off in a new commercial). Watch the international Fantastic Four trailer after the jump! Read More »
“If nobody sees it,” Whitey Bulger tells his six-year old son in this new Black Mass trailer, “it didn’t happen.” But much of what we’ll see in this movie did happen, as Bulger, played here by Johnny Depp, was among the most notorious gangsters in Boston’s history — hell, in US history. He topped the FBI’s Most Wanted list for years. Depp may be channeling Jack Nicholson’s performance from The Departed, a performance which was also at least inspired by Bulger, but he still comes off as intense and terrifying in this new trailer.

Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, and Ana de Armas star in Eli Roth‘s thriller Knock Knock, and this new trailer really starts to reveal details of what happens when the married architect played by Reeves succumbs to temptation when Izzo and de Armas show up at his doorstep one night. The two women seduce Reeves, who protests, but only a little, and some time later they return to teach him a lesson in personal responsibility.
Note that this Knock Knock trailer is not technically red-band, but it has enough heavily suggested sex and violence that you might want to hold off watching if you’re unsure. Read More »

Despite a cushy release date (July 10) and a hotshot producer (Jason Blum), The Gallows has flown mostly under the radar. It doesn’t have a big-name cast or crew, and it’s not part of a high-profile franchise. But now that we’re well into the summer movie season, Warner Bros. / New Line is finally getting the ball rolling on the marketing campaign.
Today we have the first full-length The Gallows trailer to share with you. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Dope has been making waves since Sundance, but the first trailers have only partially showed off what’s really up with the film. This new Dope red-band trailer goes a lot further, by presenting the characters uncensored, and by showing off a lot more of the story that drives the film. It’s more than a sunny tale of three high school kids (played well by Shameik Moore, Kiersey Clemons, and Tony Revolori) trying to survive school and their neighborhood, after all. Check out the trailer below to find out more. Read More »
Batkid Begins will restore your faith in humanity. We live in a cynical world; hate and conflict are things we all deal with every day. But in the documentary Batkid Begins, you get to see how pop culture can not only bring out the best in people, it can unite us in ways that are absolutely remarkable.
You probably remember back in 2013, a young boy diagnosed with leukemia was chosen by the San Francisco Make-A-Wish foundation to get his wish. The boy, Miles Scott, wanted to be Batman. Granting that wish would be no easy task. As news of his wish got out, the event snowballed into something bigger than anyone imagined. From his family to the planning to the worldwide reaction, you see all facets of this incredible event in Batkid Begins.
Directed by Dana Nachman, Batkid Begins will be released by New Line Cinema on June 26. (Julia Roberts is also producing a narrative version of the story.) Check out the first Batkid Begins trailer below. Read More »
When the upfront presentation for the new TV shows coming to Fox this fall was unveiled, there was no new trailer for the horror comedy Scream Queens from Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy. Instead, a teaser trailer with actual footage from the show arrived on its own, which means Fox really wants this one to stand out and hopes it’ll be something special. Unfortunately, the full trailer for the series has arrived, and this looks like it’s going to be murder, and not in the way you want from a horror comedy. Watch the full Scream Queens trailer after the jump. Read More »
