war for the planet of the apes teaser

It’s the beginning of the end for the Planet of the Apes franchise, or so the enthralling teaser trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes suggests. Or maybe it’s just referring tot he human race?

The teaser for the final trailer for War for the Planet of the Apes, the third installment in the Planet of the Apes reboot series, is quite apocalyptic, painting a foreboding picture of human history while showing little new footage from the upcoming film. Yes, that’s Charlton Heston narrating, guys.

Home Again Trailer - Reese Witherspoon

Over the past few years, Reese Witherspoon has taken on an eclectic batch of projects like the animated musical comedy Sing, Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Inherent Vice, an Oscar-nominated turn in Wild, and an impressive recent turn in the intriguing HBO series Big Little Lies. But now she’s going back to the well with a new romantic comedy, but this one comes from the offspring of two filmmakers best known for their work in the genre.

Home Again stars Reese Witherspoon as a 40-year old woman named Alice, recently separated from her husband, who decides to start her life anew by moving back to her hometown in Los Angeles. Choosing to live a little more spontaneously, she allows three young filmmakers to crash at her place for a bit, which creates all sorts of new surprising relationships.

Green Band 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 go retro with our comedy, wonder aloud why Alec Baldwin is narrating a documentary on ultimate Frisbee, go on walkabout through Paris, go overboard, and we get the band back together.

lost in paris trailer

Fiona Gordon‘s aunt lives in Paris and she’s trying to find her. Yes, that’s a La La Land joke, but the premise for Gordon and fellow director and co-star Dominique Abel‘s whimsical, candy-colored comedy Lost in Paris doesn’t do justice to the superb brand of physical comedy that the recently released trailer boasts.

Hounds of Love

2016 was one the best years for horror movies in a long time and 2017 looks like it could give it a run for its money. Get Out and Raw are already contenders for any future top 10 list I cook up come December and there are plenty of other promising genre movies waiting in the wings.

Like Hounds of Love, a movie that has been winning critical accolades from the film festival scene, even as each rave has been accompanied by a warning: this is a harsh movie and a tough watch and it’s not something you want to approach lightly. However, the reviews suggest that it’s worth the trouble. Now, the trailer is here.

gypsy trailer

Another day, another look at a new series coming to Netflix. At this point, the streaming service’s modus operandi seems to be all about overwhelming the competition with the sheer amount of stuff they’re putting out on a monthly basis…and it certainly helps that enough of it has been good enough to warrant our continued attention.

And while many of Netflix’s movies and shows involve offering a platform to recognizable filmmakers looking to work free of the traditional Hollywood model, the upcoming series Gypsy comes from a newcomer. In fact, the big draw here seems to be the chance to watch Naomi Watts star in a 10-part psychological thriller series. Is that enough to get you to press play? Well, let’s answer that question after we watch the new trailer.

iron sky the coming race trailer

Iron Sky, which followed two American astronauts who land on the moon only to find it occupied by the descendants of Nazis who escaped in 1945, was a movie that existed. And now, a sequel to the 2012 cult hit is going to be released. With more space Nazis. Oh, and dinosaurs this time.

War Machine Trailer

Right now political satire is at its best simply because everything coming out of Washington DC is just as laughable as it is disheartening. The only way we can cope with this kind of nonsense is to make fun of it, and that’s exactly what Netflix’s new movie War Machine appears to be doing with the war in Afghanistan.

Brad Pitt plays a fictionalized version of four-star General Stanley McChrystal (named as General Glen McMahon in the movie), the commanding general of international and US forces in Afghanistan. The real life general’s career tanked after a journalist exposed the wild partying, unorthodox behavior and surprising incompetence that took place behind the scenes of this military operation that appears to be unwinnable despite the general’s best efforts, and it appears that’s exactly what we’ll see happen in this movie, albeit with a bit more of an exaggerated comedic spin.

Cars 3 trailer

Sylvester Stallone turned the training montage into a staple of the sports movie genre with his Rocky films, but it looks like the people at Pixar are big fans of Rocky IV in particular. The brand new Cars 3 trailer that just debuted looks like this movie is essentially a remake of Stallone’s sequel, and Cars 3 even has its own version of Dolph Lundgren’s steroid-fueled Russian boxer Ivan Drago: a sleek new car named Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). See him go head-to-head with Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) in the new Cars 3 trailer below.

Baywatch Trailer

A few studio comedies try to break up the summer blockbuster spectacle every year, but some try to combine the laughs with the action. That’s exactly what the big screen adaptation of Baywatch is trying to do by teaming up Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in what Paramount Pictures hopes will be their own 21 Jump Street.

So far, the trailers for Baywatch have been unimpressive in the comedy department, but a new red band trailer for the summer comedy is easily the best one yet, though it still doesn’t look like the quality buddy cop comedy that it’s trying to be.
