Revenge of the Green Dragons trailer

Martin Scorsese has lent his name to a new tale of gangs of New York. Revenge of the Green Dragons follows two brothers who join a Chinese gang in New York during the ’80s. Based on a New Yorker article by Frederick Dannen, the film is directly inspired by tales of ’80s and ’90s Asian-American gangs in the city. The movie is directed by Andrew Lau & Andrew Loo; Lau previously made Infernal Affairs, which Martin Scorsese remade as The Departed. (Hence Scorsese’s participation as an exec producer here.) Watch the Revenge of the Green Dragons trailer below. Read More »

Mortdecai trailer

To put it mildly, Johnny Depp is not exactly at a high point in his career. He hasn’t had a solid hit since the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and his last three starring roles were outright flops. But on the bright side, he’ll have plenty of opportunities to redeem himself in the near future.

One of those chances arrives next February in the form of a goofy comedy. Depp plays the title character in Mortdecai, a roguish art dealer racing to recover a stolen painting that could lead to Nazi gold. The first Mortdecai trailer has just been released, and you can watch it after the jump.

PRIDE trailer

The Cannes Film Festival is never short on buzzy works by high-profile directors and A-list stars. But one of the biggest crowdpleasers this year wound up being a film that had mostly flown under the radar until its premiere.

Directed by Matthew Warchus, Pride tells centers on an unexpected alliance that develops between LGBT activists and striking miners in 1980s Britain. What makes the story even more touching is that it’s true. Hit the jump to watch the first Pride trailer.

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 dip our toe in the Israeli/Palestinian situation, see if a faux doc is worth your time, go on a head case with a first time director, see what Jean-Luc Godard is up to these days (nudity, apparently) and follow one dude on a magical night of shenanigans.

Miss Julie trailer

It really is impressive how versatile Jessica Chastain is. As her Oscar nominations will attest, she’s equally convincing as a bubbly Southern misfit as she is a hardened CIA agent. Now she looks poised to knock our socks off again in the new Miss Julie trailer.

Chastain plays the title character, an upper-class woman with a self-destructive streak. She falls into a toxic affair with her father’s valet, the ambitious John (Colin Farrell). Caught in the crossfire are bystanders like Christine (Samantha Morton), John’s fiancee. Watch the Miss Julie trailer after the jump.

Houdini trailer

Can the History Channel manage to get all the intricate events of Harry Houdini’s life into one two-part mini-series? We’ll see what happens, but this first full Houdini trailer shows Adrien Brody as the performer, escape artist and opponent of spiritualism; Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods) co-stars as Bess, the woman who was Houdini’s stage assistant, and eventually his wife, who outlived him by a significant margin. The trailer is like a highlight reel of Houdini’s career, with some of his early work represented, as well as shots of his most significant stunts and escapes, and hints of his later work as a debunker of fake mediums and spiritualists.

Check out the Houdini trailer below. Read More »

Green Prince trailer

One of the most talked-about films at Sundance — and, inevitably, one that I missed — was The Green Prince, a documentary about a top figure in Hamas who was recruited as an Israeli informant. Now the film is nearing general release, just as the film’s subject is more attention-getting than ever, as the conflict between Israel and Hamas rages on in Gaza. Watch The Green Prince trailer below.
