Whether or not you liked Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice when it hit theaters earlier this year, there’s a good chance that you’re curious to see the 30 minutes of footage that’s being put back into what is being called the Ultimate Edition. The alternate cut of the movie arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next month (though it will hit Digital HD a few weeks earlier), so a new trailer has arrived to tout the home video release. It’s not chock full of new footage like the previous trailer was, but there are glimpses of some new shots, as well as the special features that will take you behind the scenes.

Last week we got our first look at Jack Reacher: Never Go Back thanks to Entertainment Tonight. Unfortunately, the video was periodically interrupted by star Cobie Smulders as a talking head. (Don’t blame her, it’s the Entertainment Tonight way.) This week we’ve got the first real, full Jack Reacher: Never Go Back trailer, now with more context, more action, and fewer pointless interjections.
Tom Cruise returns as the stoic vigilante hero, who visits Virginia to meet with the head of his former unit (Smulders) and learns she’s been charged with espionage. Then he discovers he’s a wanted man, too. Oh, and that he might have a daughter he never knew about. Lots of drama for our guy this time around.

Any way you slice it, The Birth of a Nation was one of the biggest success stories to come out of Sundance this year. The film got scooped up by Fox Searchlight for $17.5 million — a new Sundance record — and it walked away with the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award. By all accounts, the energy at the film’s premiere was electric. By the time I got to see it at the press screening the next day, word had spread and the lines to get in were some of the longest I saw at the entire festival.
So what’s all the fuss about? What is it about the movie that has everyone so hyped up, director and star Nate Parker being anointed as the Next Big Thing, and critics predicting awards nominations a full year ahead of schedule? Well, you’ll get to see for yourself this fall when the film hits theaters. But to give you a little taste in the meantime, here’s a new The Birth of a Nation trailer.

Andrea Arnold‘s (Red Road) first U.S.-set film, American Honey, made quite an impression at the Cannes Film Festival last month. The drama won the Jury Prize and, although it somewhat divided critics, it provoked a variety of passionate reactions. Some called American Honey superficial, others proclaimed the film an achievement. Whatever the quality of the movie is, it’s directed by Andrea Arnold, meaning it’ll be, at the very least, an experience.
Below, watch the first American Honey trailer.

The makers of The Mind’s Eye love their ’80s genre cinema and they wear that affection as a badge of honor. Like he did with his debut feature, Almost Human, writer/director Joe Begos has made a horror movie that looks like it time-warped straight out of 1982. The synth soundtrack is appropriately icy, the practical make-up effects nasty, and the performances pitched just to the right of hammy. This film killed amongst a certain subsection of horror fans at last year’s Fantastic Fest, where it also took home the award for Best Horror Director.
The trailer for the film has arrived online and you will probably know whether or not this is your kind of movie after watching it. The Mind’s Eye caters to a very specific audience of horror nerds. You know who you are.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The story chronicled in the new documentary The Lovers and the Despot sounds like a joke, which only makes the truth of it feel all the weirder and all the more horrifying. In 1978, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il abducted South Korean director Shin Sang-ok and actress Choi Eun-hee (who were estranged lovers) and forced them to help revitalize his struggling film industry. What followed was truly stranger than fiction and directors Ross Adam and Robert Cannan look to chronicle every beat of this incredible tale in The Lovers and the Despot. You can get a sample of what to expect in the newly arrived trailer.

The trailer for Disorder appears to be selling a paint-by-numbers thriller, but everything else about the movie seems to suggest that there’s more going on here than meets the eye. For starters, there’s Matthias Schoenaerts and Diane Kruger in the lead roles and you’d be hard-pressed to name a movie where those two phoned in their lead roles. And then there’s director Alice Winocour behind the camera, who co-wrote last year’s critically acclaimed drama Mustang. Even if the trailer is selling an accurate portrait of Disorder, there’s a definite chance it will be a fair bit more interesting than your boilerplate Hollywood action movie.

Even if you think you know everything there is to know about The Beatles, a new documentary coming to Hulu this fall is bound to have something that you haven’t seen or heard yet. Director Ron Howard has been working on a documentary about the British import known as the Fab Four, focusing on the years the band was touring around the world to screaming audiences and fainting women from 1962 to 1966, and the first teaser trailer gives us a glimpse of the film, complete with talking heads from the surviving members of the band, Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

Game of Thrones prides itself on unpredictability, but the end of each season follows a familiar structure. Episode nine is where things comes to a head — the most shocking deaths, the biggest bombshells, and the bulk of the special effects budget are generally saved for the penultimate entry in each season. And then episode ten is where the season ties up some loose ends, and starts laying the groundwork for the next season.
Last night’s installment, “Battle of the Bastards,” stuck to that usual pattern. We got a long-awaited showdown which may have been the most visually impressive set piece Game of Thrones has ever done. But the show isn’t done with its twists and turns. The Game of Thrones season 6 finale trailer debuted after last night’s episode, and it teases some major developments at King’s Landing and over in the Riverlands.
Obviously, spoilers for the most recent episode of Game of Thrones are ahead. If you haven’t seen “Battle of the Bastards,” come back when you have. Read More »
