cafe society trailer

Like clockwork, another Woody Allen movie has peeked its head over the horizon. It’s an annual tradition at this point: the legendary filmmaker always arrives with another movie and each of them feels like another bold shout of “I’m not dead yet!” at the dark, gaping and empty void that encircled his comedy and drama for the past fifty or so years. After all, you have to go back to 1981 to find a year that didn’t feature the release of a new Allen film. A year without a new Woody Allen movie is the year Woody Allen kicks the bucket.

The trailer for Café Society, his latest movie, has arrived and, well, it looks like another late-period Woody Allen movie. By now, you probably know whether or not this is your thing.

Lady Dynamite Trailer

Hopefully you’re familiar with Maria Bamford due to her outstanding stand-up comedy. If not, you might have seen her on the most recent episodes of Arrested Development, or heard her voice WordGirl or Adventure Time. Otherwise, she’s also been the star of several Target commercials that have been all over television. But now she’s finally getting her own show.

Lady Dynamite is a semi-autobiographical comedy series coming to Netflix this summer, but it’s adding a bit of the bizarre and surreal to help bring it to life. Watch the first Lady Dynamite trailer below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

the founder trailer

Every successful business is a story. There are those hopeful and desperate beginnings, when someone puts their livelihood on the line to pursue a dream. There are those dramatic rises to power, where everything pays off and the money and accolades start to roll in. And, often enough, there are those dramatic third acts where all kinds of chickens come home to roost and the shape of that original dream has been distorted beyond measure.

The Founder tells the story of Ray Kroc, the struggling businessman who stumbled across a homegrown hamburger restaurant called McDonald’s, recognized its potential for greatness, and dragged it kicking and screaming into the future, where it set the template for how Americans would consume food for the rest of the century and beyond. Oh, and as the new trailer makes it clear, he was probably a bit of a dick.

Jason Bourne Trailer

You know his name, and now he remembers everything. What’s left for Jason Bourne to do? We’ll find out this summer when the fourth chapter of the franchise (fifth if you count The Bourne Legacy) that began with The Bourne Identity continues the path of the Treadstone asset who lost his memory, gained it back, and waged a war against those who turned him into a weapon.

However, a new Jason Bourne trailer shows us that Matt Damon‘s character is going to have to come to terms with the things he’s done. After all, he volunteered for the job to begin with, and now he’s caught up in more danger and intrigue again, this time taking the action to Greece, Las Vegas and more. Read More »

Mr Robot on Amazon

Like many of you, I was sucked into Mr. Robot, a television show which I’ve described as Hackers meets Fight Club, by way of The Social Network. It was surprising that a show of this quality could be a USA Network original series (and that’s not a slam from someone who doesn’t know that the channel has some good shows — I watch Suits). And to say that season one of Mr. Robot left us with more questions than answers is an understatement. USA Network has released the first teaser trailer for the second season, which plays up many of these questions but mainly: what did Elliot hope to accomplish, and what happened during Elliot’s blackout? Watch the Mr. Robot Season 2 Teaser Trailer now embedded after the jump.

the infiltrator trailer

Over the course five increasingly intense seasons of Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston‘s Walter White built a drug empire that damaged and destroyed the lives of countless characters. Perhaps Cranston believes in establishing some kind of cinematic karmic balance, because his new movie is all about him attempting to take down a drug empire. The Infiltrator tells the true story of DEA agent Bob Mazur, who went undercover in Pablo Escobar’s network of drug suppliers and corrupt bankers and ended up pulling off one of the largest drug busts in history. The new trailer for the film has the rest of the necessary details.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Do-Over Trailer

Adam Sandler‘s partnership with Netflix either got off to a great start or a terrible one, depending on how you want to look at it. The Ridiculous 6 got horrid reviews even by Adam Sandler standards, and attracted controversy for its treatment of Native Americans. On the other hand, Netflix claims it was “the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix.” And in either case, it doesn’t really matter because Sandler already has a four-picture deal with the company. Now he’s preparing to drop the second of those movies.

The Do-Over stars Sandler regular David Spade as Charlie, a sad sack who spends his days shuffling between the job that he hates and the family that he doesn’t much care for either. A high school reunion puts him back in touch with an old friend, Max (Sandler), who seems to be living the dream. At first, Max offers Charlie the promise of a new life full of fun and adventure and pretty girls. But then Max tries to take things to the next level by faking their deaths, and things spiral out of control. Watch The Do-Over trailer after the jump.  Read More »

His body of work includes films such as Scarface, Carrie, Blow Out, The Untouchables, Casualties of War, Mission: Impossible, Snake Eyes, The Black Dahlia, Carlito’s Way and most recently, Passion.

Watch the De Palma trailer below to see just how amazing this documentary is going to be for cinephiles. Read More »

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Red Band Trailer

The last time Aubrey Plaza and Zac Efron got crazy together, it was with Robert De Niro in the dreadful Dirty Grandpa. However, in Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, they have Workaholics star Adam DeVine and Pitch Perfect leading lady Anna Kendrick to help out. Plus, it helps that the script comes from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien, the scribes behind the hit comedy Neighbors and the sequel coming this summer.

A new Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates red band trailer has arrived, featuring Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza scamming the hell out of our title characters, who are desperate for some respectable ladies for their sister’s wedding. This actually doesn’t look half bad. Watch the new trailer below. Read More »
