The Lost City of Z Trailer

Mankind has always had a predilection towards exploring the unknown, journeying to places that most people have never been and will never go. The Lost City of Z tells the story of a historical expedition taken upon by explorer Percy Fawcett (Charlie Hunnam) as he ventures deep into the uncharted territory of the Amazon jungle in the 1920s. Though he disappeared in 1925 with no official recount of what he discovered, director James Grey imagines what it might have been like, based on the non-fiction bestseller by author David Grann.

bad day for the cut trailer

Much like how the Sundance Film Festival itself helps set the stage for every other film festival in the year that follows, the fest’s Midnight category helps to gauge what we can expect from independent genre cinema over the next twelve months or so. While I’m not attending Sundance (our own Peter Sciretta, Angie Han, and Ethan Anderton will be bringing you reviews over the coming week!), this is the section I tend to keep the closest eye on. Sundance has premiered plenty of unforgettable, and often gnarly, movies after the sane people have gone to sleep.

So that brings us to the trailer for Bad Day For the Cut, an Irish thriller that looks like it’ll be right at home with the after-hours crowd. It has everything you need: Revenge! Violence! Thick accents! A Game of Thrones veteran!

Deidra & Laney Rob a Train trailer

Sundance is now in full swing, which means those of you at home might be feeling festival envy right about now. But the good news is that we won’t have long to wait until some of this year’s promising features get released. As a matter of fact, we’re less than two months away from seeing Deidra & Laney Rob a Train, which was first announced by Netflix last year.

The film, directed by Sydney Freeland, is exactly what it says on the package: it’s about two girls named Deidra (Ashleigh Murray) and Laney (Rachel Crow) who decide to start robbing trains. They hatch the plan in order to make ends meet after their mother is thrown in jail, and it looks like they turn out to be actually pretty good at it. Unfortunately, their heists are so successful that they catch the attention of a detective (Tim Blake Nelson), who sets out to find these mystery bandits. Watch the Deidra & Laney Rob a Train trailer below.  Read More »

Anne Hathaway in Colossal teaser

Even if you’re a monster movie aficionado, it’s likely you’ve never seen one quite like Nacho Vigalondo‘s ColossalAnne Hathaway stars as Gloria, whose charm helps paper over the fact that she’s a total mess. Unemployed and freshly single, she moves back to her hometown and reconnects with an old friend (Jason Sudeikis) who becomes her new drinking buddy.

So far, it sounds like just another quarter-life crisis indie dramedy, right? But Gloria, it turns out, shares a mysterious connection to a giant monster that’s been rampaging through Seoul. As the truth of the situation dawns on her, Gloria must figure out how to stop it from spiraling completely out of control. Watch the Colossal teaser below. Read More »

house of cards season 5

Well, that’s one way to celebrate Inauguration Day.

As I type this sentence, Donald Trump is on the cusp of taking the oath of office and becoming the 45th President of the United States, so Netflix saw this as an opportune time to release the first House of Cards season 5 teaser. There is no actual footage here, no glimpse of Kevin Spacey‘s scheming Frank Underwood – just foreboding imagery, specifically an American flag being flown upside down…a sign of distress.

The Belko Experiment trailer

Greg McLean‘s (Wolf Creek) new thriller, The Belko Experiment, turns co-workers into animals. Written by James Gunn — who is busy with post-production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — the story is a dark, bloody, and violent office comedy. One day, the heads of a non-profit company decide they need 30 employees instead of 80, so they trap their workers, provide them with a deadly ultimatum, and turn them loose on each other.

Below, watch The Belko Experiment trailer.

I Don't Feel Like Home in This World Anymore trailer

If you’ve seen the films of Jeremy Saulnier, you know Macon Blair. While he’s been in plenty of other movies, Murder Party, Blue Ruin, and Green Room have placed Blair front-and-center, giving him meaty roles and asking him to pull off tricky characters. As a result, he has become one of my favorite actors and I am always delighted when I see him appear on screen.

So it’s a little weird to say that I’m looking forward to the new Macon Blair movie while knowing that he’s not playing a lead character. That’s because I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is Blair’s directorial debut and the new trailer has arrived. And wouldn’t you know it – it looks really good.

collide trailer

If you feel like you’ve been seeing trailers for Collide since 2015, you’d be right. Director Eran Creevy‘s crime thriller was a victim of Relativity Media’s bankruptcy and while Open Road Films scooped up the rights, the film has bounced around the release schedule like a ping pong ball in a car accident. After a series of delays (the most recent of which came this month), the film has seemingly settled on release date next month, which means that this new trailer is probably the last one we’ll see.

Sandy Wexler Teaser Trailer

Thanks to his deal at Netflix, we’re getting another Adam Sandler movie this year. Hot on the heels of The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, this time Adam Sander is putting on a goofy voice for his latest character, and he’s also taking us all the way back in 1994.

Sandy Wexler finds Adam Sandler playing the titular man, a talent manager who works in Los Angeles, but doesn’t really seem to fit in with the glitz and glamour the Hollywood scene. You’ll see what I mean in the Sandy Wexler teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »

before i fall trailer

What would Groundhog Day look like if it starred sullen teenagers instead of Bill Murray? It would probably look a lot like Before I Fall, which takes the whole “one person repeats the same day over and over again” template and applies a whole bunch of teen angst. The new trailer has arrived ahead of the film’s premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this weekend, so give it a watch and see what the folks in Park City may be talking about in a few days.
