Planet of the Apps Trailer

Apple is following Netflix and Amazon’s lead and is getting into original programming. The first two shows from the computer company will premiere later this year, which includes a series called Planet of the Apps, which looks to be Shark Tank for the iPhone app world. As a big Shark Tank fanatic and Apple fanboy, this seems right down my alley. See the first Planet of the Apps trailer embedded after the jump now.

dean trailer

At a glance, Dean sounds like a parody of what many people imagine modern indie cinema to be: a comedian making his directorial debut casts himself in a more-dramatic-than-usual role to tell the story of a morose guy struggling with grief who has to balance family obligations with a new woman in his life. However, Dean has something going for it – the comedian making his directorial debut and starring in that more-dramatic-than-usual role is the very talented and very funny Demetri Martin and the first trailer is here to sell you on the whole thing.

Everything, everything trailer

Director Stella Meghie‘s (Jean of the Joneses) adaptation of Nicola Yoon’s novel, Everything, Everything, looks like a movie that’ll get some moviegoers reaching for a kleenex box. The romance stars Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) and Nick Robinson (Jurassic World) in a love story about a teenage girl who can’t ever leave the house.

Below, watch the Everything, Everything trailer.

Carpool Karaoke Trailer

Even if you’re not a regular viewer of The Late Late Show on CBS with host James Corden, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of his popular, consistently viral segment known as Carpool Karaoke. In the recurring segment, James Corden hops in a car with a famous celebrity, usually a chart-topping singer but sometimes just another figure in pop culture, and they cruise around Los Angeles jamming out to an assortment of songs in the car, just like you and me. This year, that segment gets its own series.

Carpool Karaoke: The Series will be the first programming endeavor for Apple as they start to expand into original programming. Last night the first trailer debuted in front of the perfect audience during the Grammys, which were hosted by James Corden, and featured a few of the famous faces that he’s shared a ride with before. The trailer shows that Corden won’t be hosting every episode, but there’s quite a cavalcade of talent from across the board to make up for it.

The Bad Batch

Ana Lily Amirpour‘s debut feature, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, felt simultaneously fresh and familiar: it borrowed from the iconography of several decades’ worth of cinema, but it combined those elements in a way we’d never quite seen before. Her sophomore effort, The Bad Batch, looks every bit as attention-grabbing. Suki Waterhouse and Jason Momoa star as two very different people whose paths collide in a dusty dystopia overrun by cannibals, while Keanu Reeves shows up late in the game as a charismatic cult leader.

If that description doesn’t pique your interest, I can’t help you — this movie might just be Not Your Thing. But if it entices you, click through to get a little taste of this weird, colorful world that’s equal parts Mad Max and Spring Breakers. Watch the first The Bad Batch teaser trailer below.  Read More »

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3

Netflix announced a whole bunch of upcoming release dates last week, but leave it to Titus Andromedon to be fashionably late. On the bright side, this means he gets to capitalize on the renewed buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s Lemonade following her showstopping performance at the Grammys last night — because, naturally, the first Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser has him doing his very best knockoff rendition of “Hold Up.”

Watch the first official Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 teaser, which also reveals the Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt season 3 premiere date, below.  Read More »

Ghost in the Shell trailer

While Marvel continues to hem and haw about giving Scarlett Johansson her own solo superhero movie, Paramount’s swooped in and made her the centerpiece of her very own would-be sci-fi action franchise. She stars as the Major in Ghost in the Shell, a new live-action adaptation of the classic Japanese manga. With director Rupert Sanders behind the camera, the film seems to have no shortage of stunning visuals. But can the rest of the movie live up to those cool designs?

A new Ghost in the Shell trailer offers a bit more story, so you can judge for yourself. Plus: find out what Johansson has to say about the ongoing whitewashing controversy over the casting of this film. Read More »

The Ticket Trailer - Dan Stevens

Millions of us hope that one day we’ll win the lottery, thinking that it might make our lives easier. But when James (Dan Stevens), a blind man, wins his own lottery by suddenly waking up with his sight restored, all it does is make things more complicated.

The Ticket is a new drama from director Ido Fluk that played at the Tribeca Film Festival, and the first trailer for the drama just arrived, showing us that getting the one thing that we want so desperately may not make us as happy as we initially thought.

unlocked trailer

I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Unlocked was originally conceived over a decade ago – the trailer feels like something we’d be seeing in theaters around 2004 or so, at the height of Hollywood’s attempt to come to grips with the events of September 11, 2001. You have a heroic CIA interrogator (which has become something of an oxymoron) battling Islamic terrorists to prevent a biological attack in London. This thing looks like a throwback to the days when Jack Bauer was shooting out kneecaps and beating up ACLU lawyers on Fox’s 24. It feels positively ancient.

But maybe that’s part of the appeal? After all, 24 is back. Maybe it will be fun to watch Noomi Rapace and Orlando Bloom running around London shooting people while respected character actors furrow their brows in expository scenes where they have to talk about where bombs are located and who sold them out and so on. Maybe?

Dozens of independent films debuted at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, and plenty of them got picked up for distribution, presumably sometime later this year.
