The Final girls trailer

I went into The Final Girls at SXSW this year having no idea what to expect from the horror/comedy Todd Strauss-Schulson. What I saw was a very funny comedy that has a good take on the tropes of slasher films, but also a movie that has a really effective core about dealing with difficult family trauma. The cast is led by Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, and Nina Dobrev, with Alexander Ludwig, Alia Shawkat, Thomas Middleditch, and Adam Devine in major roles. Check out The Final Girls trailer here.

‘Hellions’ Trailer: New Demons Haunt Halloween

Hellions trailer

Canadian director Bruce McDonald has been making weird movies and TV shows for a long time; his 1991 film Highway 61 is a personal fave, as are the 1998 series Twitch City and the 2008 thriller Pontypool. His latest film is Hellions, in which a few people have probably their worst-ever Halloween night when demonic little trick-or-treaters show up on their doorstep. The Hellions trailer has some very odd Halloween sights; have a look below.  Read More »

Films about people turning on each other after maybe getting victimized by spiritual forces are nothing new. But Robert EggersThe Witch puts a fresh spin on the formula by moving the action to colonial New England, surrounded by superstition and wilderness.

However, they seem to be cursed at every turn — their crops fail, and their infant son goes missing. Fear and dread begin to plague the family, as they grow increasingly suspicious of one another.

The Martian trailer

While we wait to see what happens with Prometheus 2 and Alien 5, here’s a Ridley Scott space adventure we definitely know is coming in our near future. The Martian stars Matt Damon as astronaut Mark Watney, who’s presumed dead and left behind after a dust storm hits on Mars. But he’s very much alive, and now all he has to do is wait for rescue.

The problem is, help is 140 million miles and four years away — and he’s only got the resources to survive on Mars for a few weeks. As he puts it, he’s “gonna have to science the shit out of this.” Watch The Martian trailer after the jump. Read More »

Every Thing Will Be Fine is the latest film from Wim Wenders, with James Franco starring in a film about a man whose life is thrown into disarray after a car accident. Marie-Josée Croze, Rachel McAdams, and Charlotte Gainsbourg also star in the slow-burn drama, and there’s a good Every Thing Will Be Fine trailer to check out below.

In addition to that, we’ve got the Wim Winders touring retrospective that features the 295-minute version of Until the End of the World. (You read that right; it’s a five-hour cut.) Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Victor Frankenstein trailer

20th Century Fox has dropped the first trailer for Victor Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy as the mad doctor and Daniel Radcliffe as his faithful (and so far non-hunchbacked) protege Igor.

If you’ve seen really any version of the Mary Shelley classic, you know how it goes: Frankenstein engages in some crazy science and creates a literal monster, with predictably disastrous results. What’s different this time is a playful buddy comedy dynamic between Frankenstein and Igor, a la Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies. Watch the Victor Frankenstein trailer after the jump.

Minority Report promo

A few months ago we saw the first Minority Report promo, showing off Fox’s new series that picks up the story of Steven Spielberg’s feature film. Now there’s a new one, which has more details on the sci-fi crime series.

Ten years after the events of the film, cops still use high-tech tools to fight crime and solve cases, but the predictive precog program is gone. One detective, Lara Vega, played by Meagan Good, runs across the mysterious Dash (Stark Sands) while trying to solve a case. Dash is one of the three former precogs, now living as far off the grid as he can manage. His twin brother, Arthur, now played by Nick Zano, is missing, and Dash is having distressingly incomplete precognitive visions without him.

Fox is still keeping Arthur in hiding, even after adding Zano to the cast. (Sands had previously played both precog brothers.) But this new Minority Report featurette reveals a bit more of the show’s approach to science fiction, crime, and adventure. Read More »
