i daniel blake trailer

Today is the 80th birthday of director Ken Loach, one of the most prolific and respected filmmakers of the past half-century. The breadth of his filmography is astonishing – between 1967 and 2016, there have only been a handful of years where he didn’t have a new film ready to go. Although he’s best known amongst cinephiles for his 1969 classic Kes, Loach has continued to earn accolades throughout his entire career, with his 2006 film The Wind That Shakes the Barley taking home the Palme d’Or at theCannes Film Festival.

And then he won the Palme d’Or for a second time earlier this year for his newest film, I, Daniel Blake, making him only the ninth filmmaker to achieve that honor. So happy birthday, Mr. Loach. Let’s celebrate it by watching the new trailer for his latest film.

David Brent Life on the Road Trailer

For any fans of the original iteration of The Office, it appears this is as close as we’ll get to seeing a film adaptation of the comedy mockumentary series. Comedian Ricky Gervais is back as former Wernham Hogg Paper Company boss David Brent, only this time he’s a traveling salesman who is still desperate to follow his dream to become a rock star.

David Brent: Life on the Road is a mockumentary feature that follows the clueless title character as he self-finances a tour across the United Kingdom with his band Foregone Conclusion. As you might expect, audiences aren’t so keen to receive the band, and Brent continues to make every situation awkward with his inappropriate sense of humor and complete lack of self-awareness.

outlaws and angels trailer

The past year or so has been a fantastic time for fans of offbeat westerns, with a variety of filmmakers taking on this conic genre and giving it a unique twist. The Keeping Room used the genre to craft a low-key feminist thriller. Bone Tomahawk eased you into a traditional The Searchers riff before taking a brutal left turn into hardcore horror. The Hateful Eight was a spectacular exploration of a nation’s rotten core. The western may be in recession, but it’s never been more interesting than it is right now.

Could Cowboys and Angels continue this trend? The Sundance Film Festival alum hasn’t been generating a ton of buzz, but a new trailer has arrived and it looks like it could fall in line with the recent spate of bizarre and bloody westerns.

Roseanne for President Trailer

America is so embroiled in the current insane election that you may have forgotten some of the craziness that ensued in the election for president back in 2012. You may not remember this, but comedian and sitcom star Roseanne Barr was once legitimately campaigning to be President of the United States as a challenge to the two-party political system that runs our democracy. Now a documentary reminds us of her journey, and gives us an in-depth look at not just her campaign, but the comedian herself.

Anthropoid Trailer

Right now Christopher Nolan is working on a World War II drama called Dunkirk about Operation Dynamo, which saw the evacuation of hundreds of thousands of British, French, Belgian, Polish and Dutch soldiers in the title French city after being completely surrounded by German forces. Cillian Murphy is reteaming with Nolan for the film, but before we get to see a frame of Dunkirk, we’ll get to see the Batman Begins star carry out another famous World War II operation.

Anthropoid tells the true story of the operation of the same name which tasked two Czech soldiers (Cillian Murphy and Jamie Dornan) with assassinating SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the Reich’s third in command after Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler. See how the mission comes together in the first Anthropoid trailer after the jump. Read More »

Middle School Trailer

After delivering the bumbling comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop, director Steve Carr is heading into the world of young adults with an Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, an adaptation of the book of the same name by James Patterson. With flairs of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Matilda and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, the film looks like it’s perfectly geared towards the target audience who read the books, but with some familiar comedic talent to make it a little more appealing to adults.

‘Storks’ Trailer: Andy Samberg Delivers a Baby

Storks trailer

“Where do babies come from?” is the question all parents dread hearing, at least according to every family sitcom ever. But if you can wait ’til fall to have the talk, Warner Bros.’ Storks can help you out with a kid-friendly, completely scientifically accurate accounting of how exactly the process works.

As all of us adults know, of course, it begins with the Baby Making Machine on Stork Mountain. The device spits out a tiny human, and a bird (possibly one that sounds exactly like Andy Samberg) is assigned to drop it off at its new home. Along the way, said bird will inevitably run into hilarious and adorable mishaps. Get a little peek at that incredible journey with the latest Storks trailer.
