Still recovering from that downer of a Game of Thrones finale? Here’s a little something that might cheer you up. HBO has released a new promo for 7 Days of Hell, a 45-minute comedy film starring Andy Samberg and Jon Snow (a.k.a. Kit Harington) as two tennis rivals caught in an epic, record-setting match.
The supporting cast includes actual tennis players like Serena Williams, John McEnroe, and Chris Evert, plus reliably funny actors like Will Forte, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, Lena Dunham, and June Squibb as the Queen.

Money makes strange bedfellows in filmmaking. As an example, here’s the first major US Dragon Blade trailer, showing off the film that unites Jackie Chan, Adrien Brody, and John Cusack in a story of Roman forces marching into China. The film was already a massive success in China earlier this year, no doubt because of Jackie Chan’s enduring popularity and relentless promotional efforts at home. Or perhaps people just like seeing very odd combinations of actors and action. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

We’re deep into the summer movie season now, with massive tentpoles like Avengers: Age of Ultron and Jurassic World already behind us. But fear not — there are still more fun times ahead, including next month’s Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
If you’ve ever seen a Mission: Impossible movie, you already know the drill. IMF agent Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is once again on the run, and once again he has to engage in a string of death-defying stunts to save himself, his agency, and the world. And once again, it all looks jaw-droppingly cool.
Christopher McQuarrie directed this time around, and Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner, Ving Rhames, Rebecca Ferguson, and Alec Baldwin star with Cruise. Watch the new Mission Impossible Rogue Nation trailer after the jump. Read More »
Right now you can get plenty of Lily Tomlin in the Netflix exclusive series Grace and Frankie, but later this summer she’s also got a new indie hitting theaters, fresh from the Sundance Film Festival and Los Angeles Film Festival this year.
The movie is called Grandma, but don’t think that just because Tomlin is old enough to play the title role that she’s some feeble old woman. In the indie comedy, Tomlin just might be the coolest grandmother you’ve ever seen, but she’s got a bit of an attitude problem, making it hard to get along with her granddaughter (Julia Garner of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For) when they need each other the most.

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 start using the word “Comic-Con”, scratch our heads at a mystery involving cows, realize the brilliance of Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, choke down a footlong, and stand in awe of things we will never do ourselves.

In the great debate over fast zombies vs. slow ones, the shuffling corpses of The Walking Dead fall definitively into the latter camp. Even so, it’s hard to blame a guy for wanting to get the hell away from them as fast as humanly possible. The newest Fear the Walking Dead teaser hits the ground running, sending star Frank Dillane on a sprint away from unseen forces. Watch the new Fear the Walking Dead teaser after the jump. Read More »
Sundance, that January institution, is coming to movie theaters and VOD now, in June. The festival which opens each year in film was the debut of some great films for 2015. Many are now in theaters, or arriving shortly: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope, and The End of The Tour, for example.
The latest is The Overnight, a very funny film that features Taylor Schilling and Adam Scott who, with their young son, relocate to Los Angeles. They’ve got some anxieties to deal with, and some sex problems, but once they meet a local couple played by Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche it seems like some of their social worries might be over.
The movie kicks into gear with raunchy comedy right in the first scene, leading into good scenes that lay out some of the problems facing this young couple. Check out The Overnight opening, featuring a few very not safe for work scenes, below. Read More »
