What if the catacombs segment in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was the setup for a horror movie, rather than an adventure film set piece? Ben Feldman (Mad Men), Perdita Weeks (The Great Fire), and Edwin Hodge (The Purge: Anarchy) star in As Above So Below as a crew of budding urban archaeologists who seek a hidden truth in the catacombs beneath Paris.
They find something else: shadows of their past incarnated in visions that have the power to do more than just spook each kid. This As Above So Below extended red-band trailer features blood, fore, and plenty of weirdness as the crew finds what might be the gate to their own personal hell. Read More »

As the domineering music conservatory teacher at the center of Whiplash, J.K. Simmons spews vile, mean, even brutal dialogue. Most of it is aimed at the the young drummer and would-be jazz great played by Miles Teller. Is the teacher just using a bit of old-school motivation, or is he really out of his mind? The guy’s propensity to throw things suggests the latter, but the student isn’t exactly balanced either. Each drives the other a little further over the edge.
This Whiplash international trailer isn’t rated “red” by the MPAA, because it comes out of France rather than the US. But it does feature some of the cursing Simmons spits at Teller. This is just the barest hint of how ugly he gets, though. Seriously, if you’re a fan of Simmons, especially when he shows his mean side, this movie is an absolute must-see. Read More »

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 find out what we’re really into behind closed doors, stay adrift in the South, think about overseas suicide, and get all kinds of Rain Man with our knowledge of math.

Viggo Mortensen has had a busy couple years, though he hasn’t been doing Hollywood films. The Two Faces of January (trailer) and Jauja (trailer) have premiered recently in Berlin and Cannes, respectively. Now he’s got a third film hitting a major fest this year. In Far From Men, French writer-director David Oelhoffen started with the Albert Camus short story The Guest to create what is, in many respects, a western — just one set in Algeria during the revolution of the mid/late 1950s. Check out the Far From Men trailer below. Read More »
