USS Indianapolis Trailer

Over the past few years, Nicolas Cage hasn’t been making very good choices when it comes to the movies in which he chooses to star. It’s a bummer that the man who starred in the likes of Leaving Las Vegas, The Rock, Raising Arizona and Face/Off has stooped so low as to star in a pandering adaptation of Left Behind, not to mention the countless other forgettable action thrillers.

Sadly, USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage doesn’t look like a huge step up from his recent disappointing work, but at the very least, it’s inspired the the true story of some real courageous men in the American Navy during World War II. The first trailer for this movie paints a tearjerker of a war drama, bordering on melodrama, but it’s hard to really hate on the movie when it’s about real heroes.

Fathers and Daughters trailer

There probably isn’t a person alive who has not been shaped, in some way, by some lingering childhood trauma or another. In Gabriele Muccino‘s Fathers and Daughters, those scars take center stage. Russell Crowe plays a writer and the doting father of an adorable daughter named Katie. But a painful incident tears the family apart, leaving little Katie to be raised by her aunt (played by Diane Kruger). Decades later, she’s grown into a young woman played by Amanda Seyfried, a social worker who deals with orphaned children while struggling with her own daddy issues.

Aaron Paul plays a nice young man who woos the grown-up Katie, and Quvenzhané Walls appears as particularly troubled charge of Katie’s. Octavia Spencer and Jane Fonda are also among the supporting cast. Watch the Fathers and Daughters trailer after the jump.  Read More »

The Nice Guys final trailer

Forget all of those super-serious superhero-on-superhero showdowns. Sometimes, the brightest sparks fly when two not-so-heroic foes are forced to join forces. And no one does that particular genre of story like Shane Black, as we’ve seen in films like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon. His latest, The Nice Guys, pairs a hapless detective (Ryan Gosling) with the gruff enforcer (Russell Crowe) who broke his arm, as the two get caught up in an ever-more-tangled web of intrigue involving a missing girl, a dead porn star, and Matt Bomer in a really unflattering haircut.

All of the marketing so far has suggested that Black is up to his usual tricks — colorful characters, ridiculous action, crackling dialogue — with typically spectacular results. And the first reactions from early screenings are backing that up. Get a taste of the Nice Guys buzz and watch the Nice Guys final trailer after the jump.

Now You See Me 2 Trailer

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for Now You See Me 2. The new piece of marketing shows how Morgan Freeman’s character, incarcerated skeptic Thaddeus Bradley, has somehow framed the Four Horseman and is using the magician group to do his evil bidding. Of course we also see a lot of visual flourishes thanks to the film’s magic-fueled heist set-pieces, many of which appear to use too much CG for my tastes. (As an amateur magician, I’d love to see more practical magic being used, as some of these visuals look too impossible even if the ideas are based in possible science.) Hit the jump to see the third Now You See Me 2 trailer.

urge trailer

Every James Bond actor must eventually come to terms with the end of his tenure as the most famous spy in movie history and address a most terrifying question: what’s next? For Sean Connery, that was a decade-plus of poor choices followed by an Oscar, a career resurrection, and a quiet retirement. For Roger Moore, that was a few decades of work followed by an unofficial position as official mascot of the 007 series. For Timothy Dalton, that was a slow transformation into a malleable supporting actor and eventually, a fantastic starring role on Penny Dreadful.

The arrival of the Urge trailer finally gives us a clue what Pierce Brosnan‘s later years may look like now that he’s officially phasing out of the action hero thing. If this preview is any indication, Brosnan is fully prepared to drop all inhibitions and become the wacky character actor that we’ve occasionally been able to glimpse beneath his steely veneer. Urge looks like a must-see just so we can bear witness to whatever the hell Brosnan is doing here.

In season two of Wayward Pines, another man (Jason Patric) finds himself just wanting to go back home. The set up is quite similar to season one’s, but the current situation in the small town and the new cast should add some distinction to the upcoming season of Wayward Pines. Executive produced by M. Night Shyamalan (The Visit), the thriller returns this month to Fox.

Watch the Wayward Pines season two teaser trailer below.

men go to battle trailer

If you’ve recently looked over the slate of films arriving in 2016 and thought “Man, I really wish there were two films about the American Civil War coming out this year,” you’re officially in luck. In addition to Free State of Jones, we will soon be treated to Men Go to Battle, which looks about as far removed from that bigger, more bombastic take on this material as possible. Zachary Treitz‘s feature debut as a director looks small and scrappy, but there’s an undeniable charm on display in this trailer. The film landscape is no stranger to offbeat and darkly comedic looks at life during wartime, but this particular conflict is usually treated with a certain amount of historical sanctity. It’s about time that the Civil War got weird at the movies.

scream season 2 trailer

I rolled my eyes harder than anyone when it was revealed that MTV was making a new television series based on the Scream movies. However, a few trusted friends and colleagues have told me that my negativity was misplaced. I have yet to actually eat my words, but enough serious horror fans have informed me that my decision to not watch the first season of this show was a poor one and that the negative early reviews were off-base. With the new season arriving later this month, it seems that I officially have a fire lit under me to actually watch this show, even if it’s just an excuse for me to tell everyone that they’re wrong.

Igniting that fire is the new trailer for the show’s second season, which gives away some of the first season’s biggest plot twists. Tread carefully if spoilers matter to you and you haven’t caught up with season one quite yet.

THE SHALLOWS trailer

When it comes to underwater adventures this June, you’ve got two choices. You can cuddle up to the friendly fish of Pixar’s Finding Dory, and go home thinking about how enchanting the world under the sea is… or you can scare the crap out of yourself with The Shallows.
