The first teaser for The Strain season 2 premiered on television recently, and is now online. This top-down flyover of New York City ravaged by vampiric infected and damaged by fires could be for a video game as easily as for a TV show. The Strain just went back into production in November, and is evidently saving a real new footage reveal for later in its promotional cycle. But the show, created by Guillermo del Toro and Carlton Cuse based on the books by del Toro and Chuck Hogan, looks like it is aiming for a bit more spectacle this time out; hopefully there will be more satisfying character explorations to go along with it. Check out The Strain S2 teaser below. Read More »

It’ll be at least a couple years before Taken 4 comes out — if it ever does come out — but while we wait, The Gunman might be able to tide you over. Directed by Pierre Morel (of the first Taken), The Gunman stars Sean Penn as Jim Terrier, a former Special Forces soldier and military contractor suffering from PTSD.
All he wants is to reconnect with his love, but circumstances get in the way. He has information that has certain very dangerous people wanting him dead, and he goes on a globe-trotting mission to clear his name. Watch The Gunman international trailer after the jump. Read More »
There’s a film with Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, and Richard Roxburgh that US audiences haven’t had a chance to see yet. The Turning is an Australian anthology film that adapts a set of short stories by Tim Winton, with more than a dozen directors, including Mia Wasikowska and Anthony Lucas (The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello), David Wenham (300: Rise of an Empire) and Justin Kurzel (Assassin’s Creed). But the anthology structure and long running time mean that has mostly been on the festival circuit for a while. Check out a trailer for The Turning below. Read More »
The Thunderbirds TV series that captured imaginations in the ’60s is about to get a new revival. The 50th Anniversary of the original show will be celebrated in part with a new series from ITV called Thunderbirds Are Go!, with effects from WETA. A new Thunderbirds teaser is now available, and though it doesn’t show off very much, it might be enough for fans who have been excited about the new show.
Update: Previously, we had seen only an image of the backs of the new Thunderbirds team design. Now we’ve got the reverse of that shot, showing off the faces of the puppet-based CG designs. Check it out in full below.

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 grow up, get drunk, get Shakespeare’d, get a life, and wonder what hides in the minds and hearts of office a-holes.

Unsurprisingly, Taken 3 was the run away box office champion in its opening weekend, grossing almost $40 million. People just love Liam Neeson kicking ass, especially on a weekend and month that’s down at the theaters. And though almost everyone involved figured the third film would be the end, maybe it won’t be.
Jimmy Kimmel Live got on the train early. They created their own Taken 4 trailer a mere three days after the Taken 3 opening weekend. Liam Neeson stars, of course, as does the host himself. But it’s the subject who is actually “taken” that brings it all together. Watch this funny Taken 4 trailer below. Read More »
