Carol trailer

Todd Haynes‘ Carol is an excellent film. The more I think about it, the more I love it. It’s a quiet movie, one that speaks to you through performances and visuals, not always dialogue. It’s a rare movie, in that sense, and it’s one of the many reasons why you should all see it in a theater. The Weinstein Company has released another trailer for film, which you can watch after the jump.

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 go on the hunt for those sweet sweet sweet Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pies, get schooled on some artwork, check in with the dudes of Blur, watch the first vlogger ever let it all out (literally), watch a family of girls get imprisoned by their father, see what hilarity Bill Burr is ready to unleash on the masses, and marvel at the true power of a food critic.

zootopia trailer

The Walt Disney Company was built on the backs of talking animals, so the existence of a movie like Zootopia was inevitable. Why settle for a talking mouse and a talking duck and their small circle of friends when you can have an entire city populated by talking animals, each of them ready to line store shelves in huggable plush form?

And while the merchandising opportunities for Zootopia seem enormous (you just know Disney is already looking for ways to squeeze these characters into their theme parks and Disney Infinity and what-have-you), the movie itself looks clever and cute. A new preview has arrived, offering a look at a single scene from the movie and it’s charming stuff. Walt Disney Animation Studios has been on a roll recently with Frozen and Big Hero 6, both of which took home Academy Awards, so no pressure, Zootopia.

Watch the new Zootopia trailer after the jump.

Real Rob Trailer

Netflix has revived everything from Arrested Development to The Killing to Full House to Gilmore Girls, and apparently they figured while they were at it, they might as well bring back Rob Schneider‘s short-lived CBS sitcom ¡Rob!, too.

Well, not really. But the company is putting out another sitcom named after and starring Schneider. Real Rob promises to be somewhat more autobiographical, though. This is to Schneider what Master of None was to Aziz Ansari. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on what you think of Schneider’s brand of comedy. Watch the first Real Rob trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Transparent Season 2 trailer

Amazon’s original television series Transparent became one of the biggest critically acclaimed shows of last year, earning two Golden Globes and five Emmy wins. Jill Soloway’s series proved that Netflix had real competition in the streaming subscription television game, and also showed what kind of entertainment was still possible outside of the traditional ad-supported content sources.

The acclaimed Amazon Studios original series will return with a second season on December 11th 2015 (a week before Star Wars: The Force Awakens is unleashed upon the world, give g you a few days to marathon through it). Amazon has premiered a new two-minute Transparent season 2 trailer, which you watch now embedded after the jump.

Boss, The (2016)

Melissa McCarthy seemingly can do no wrong when it comes to the box office, and she’ll try to continue her hot streak next year with two more new comedies. We’ve already heard all about one of them, Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot, and today we finally have a first look at the other.

The Boss stars McCarthy as, well, the boss. Not as in Bruce Springsteen, but as in the epitome of every terrible, shady, ruthless corporate boss that sank the economy. After Michelle Darnell is finally convicted for insider trading, she re-emerges from prison ready to start fresh. The comedy is directed by McCarthy’s frequent collaborator (and real-life husband) Ben Falcone, who also directed her in Tammy.

Sisters Trailer

Next month, it feels like everyone in the world will be heading to the movies to catch Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But there are plenty of people who simply don’t give a damn about the sci-fi franchise and may be in the mood for something completely different. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have you covered.

Sisters brings the Saturday Night Live veterans together on the big screen yet again, following their team-up on Baby Mama and their brief cameo in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues. But this time they’re really cutting loose by throwing one last huge party in the house their parents just sold, and you can see how it goes in the new Sisters international trailer. Read More »


Richard Gere is one of those movies stars who’s probably slightly undervalued as an actor because of his stardom. But for the past decade, aside from the occasional hokey romance or two, he’s been doing some of his most thoughtful work as a performer. He’s taken on smaller and more intimate projects, frequently playing some wonderfully unlikable and deeply human characters (see The Hoax or The Hunting Party, if you haven’t already). His next film, The Benefactor, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival this year, and it was met with mostly positive reviews.

After the jump, watch the trailer for The Benefactor.

Fifty Shades of Black trailer

Based on the box office numbers, just about every grown-up in the world celebrated Valentine’s Day this year by going to see Fifty Shades of Grey.

Well, there are a couple of options. You could watch Dakota Johnson’s vanilla romcom How to Be Single, the trailer for which debuted yesterday. Or, if you’ve got more, um, unconventional desires, you could check out Marlon WayansFifty Shades of Grey parody, Fifty Shades of Black. Watch the trailer after the jump. Read More »
