Pauly Shore Stands Alone trailer
Showtime has acquired the independent documentary feature Pauly Shore Stands Alone about the life of a struggling and aging comedian. The Pauly Shore film was produced by a /Film reader and recently won Best Documentary Feature at the Downtown Los Angeles Film Festival, and is now set to premiere on the premium cable channel on December 4th 2014. Unlike some of Shore’s recent efforts, Pauly Shore Stands Alone is not a fake documentary or mockumentary and actually seems to be an interesting look at a comic trying to run back into the spotlight after his 15 minutes of fame had ended. The Pauly Shore Stands Alone trailer can be watched after the jump.

Tokyo Tribe

I want you to go get a piece or paper or open the Notes program on your phone and write down two words: Tokyo Tribe. You’re going to want tangible proof you knew about one of the craziest, most surprising, surreal fun films of the year well before anyone else.

Tokyo Tribe is directed by Shion Sono, a director whose films (Love Exposure, Cold Fish) are usually pretty brutal. For the most part, this one isn’t. In fact, it’s the opposite. Tokyo Tribe is a hip hop musical about gang wars in Tokyo filled with sex, action, rapping and more rapping. Think Les Miserables if it were populated by The Warriors, who acted like they were in a kung-fu version of Beat Street, with the visual aesthetic of Spring Breakers. Set in an Eighties. That almost describes Tokyo Tribe, a film I loved to no end. Read More »

‘Better Call Saul’ Teaser: Can I Get an Amen?

Better Call Saul teaser

The TV schedule will be jam-packed with new shows for the next few weeks, some much more promising-looking than others. However, even within that crowded slate there’s one highly anticipated project that’ll be conspicuously absent. The Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul doesn’t premiere until early next year, which means we’ve got several months to wait still.

But of course, AMC would rather you didn’t forget about it in the meantime. So the network has debuted another brief Better Call Saul teaser, hinting that even before Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) remade himself as Saul Goodman, he had a whole lot of Saul Goodman in him. Hit the jump to see the latest Better Call Saul teaser.

The Interview Red Band Trailer

Nestled in among all the family-friendly holiday releases and prestigious Oscar hopefuls this Christmas will be The InterviewSeth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s follow-up to This Is the End. Rogen does double duty as one of the film’s leads, a TV producer named Aaron Rapoport who runs a popular celebrity tabloid TV show starring the charismatic Dave Skylark (James Franco).

In an attempt to get ambitious, the pair score a rare interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) — and then quickly find themselves way in over their heads when they’re recruited by CIA agent Lacey (Lizzy Caplan) to take him out. And she doesn’t mean for drinks. Or to dinner. Watch The Interview red band (NSFW) trailer 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 remember the lowly cassette tape, get funky with an old school space station, delve into short story, try and make an effort with the family, and look at western music through the eyes of Japan.

Force Majeure trailer

I literally just walked out of a screening of Force Majeure at Fantastic Fest 2014 and had to let you know about it. Thankfully for me, a new poster and trailer came out earlier this week.

Directed by Ruben Östlund, the film follows a family who are on a ski vacation. When an avalanche unexpectedly hits, everyone is forced into a life or death situation where they’ll reveal their true colors. In one case, they aren’t what they expect. That might sounds like the set up to some kind of horror movie, but Force Majeure walks an absolute stellar tightrope of tone, seamlessly going from uncomfortable to funny, then tense and human. It’s poignant, it’s hilarious, it’s beautifully shot and it’s totally unexpected. The film won a special award at Cannes earlier this year and has been slaying the festival crowd, myself included. Below what the latest Force Majeure trailer and see the new poster. Read More »

Low Down

It’s been a bad year for Elle Fanning and cinematic father figures. Her Maleficent dad sent her away as a baby, and her Boxtrolls dad mostly just neglects her. Her streak will continue with Low Down, in which John Hawkes finds himself torn between his love for her, his passion for music, and his addiction to heroin.

Directed by Jeff Preiss, the indie drama debuted at Sundance this year and is now headed for a theatrical release thanks to Oscilloscope. Also starring are Glenn CloseTaryn Manning, Flea, Lena Headey, and Peter Dinklage – which means we might actually get to see the two Lannister sibs share a scene without trying to kill each other. Watch the first Low Down trailer after the jump.
