Mindhunter Trailer

Director David Fincher has tackled crime thrillers with fantastic, acclaimed results in films like Panic Room, Zodiac and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Now he’s returning to the genre, but this time in serial form on Netflix.

Mindhunter is a new Netflix original series based on on Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, a non-fiction book by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker about agents of the FBI’s Investigative Support Unit which set out to get into the mindset of serial killers and psychopaths so that they might have an easier time identifying and catching them. A new trailer for the series has arrived, and it looks like exactly the kind of gripping crime drama we’d expect from a filmmaker like David Fincher. Read More »

What Happened to Monday trailer

Netflix has unveiled a new trailer for a dystopian thriller called What Happened to Monday that features Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) playing seven identical twin sisters whose very existence is a crime: they’ve secretly grown to adulthood in a world in which every family is only allowed to have one child. This looks like a ridiculously fun B-movie, and I can’t wait to check it out. Watch the trailer below.

mother! Jennifer Lawrence

The mother! teaser trailer for Darren Aronofsky‘s newest film seemed as cryptic you could get, with garbled, disconnected dialogue playing over a scene of Jennifer Lawrence walking silently through a house. That is, until the last horrifying 10 seconds.

It’s a teaser trailer in the truest sense, offering us nothing to make of the film, except for the fact that it looks disturbing as hell. Bring it on.

Escapes Trailer

The only way we could get a Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott crossover would be in our dreams. But the next cl0sest thing is the Wes Anderson-produced documentary Escapes, which follows the strange and beautiful life of Hampton Fancher, the former flamenco dancer-turned screenwriter of one of the most iconic sci-fi movies of all time, Blade Runner.

How did he end up in the world of Hollywood, and what misadventures and detours did he get into along the way? And why is Anderson so fascinated in him that he’ll produce a documentary, albeit one directed by Michael Almereyda, about him? Find out in the Escapes trailer.

flatliners trailer

From producer Michael Douglas comes a remake of Flatliners. Based on Joel Schumacher‘s 1990 film, the premise appears to be more or less the same with some modern touches. It’s a fine movie that doesn’t quite live up to its premise, so unlike a lot of cases, a remake here makes sense. So far, based on the marketing, it doesn’t look like Niels Arden Oplev‘s (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) movie is bringing a whole lot new to the table – except for a strong cast.

Below, watch the new Flatliners trailer.

Cop and a Half: New Recruit

Teaming up two unlikely partners for a buddy cop comedy is a cinematic cliche. That formula gets even more ridiculous when one of those characters is a grizzled, grumpy detective and the other is a precocious, ambitious little kid. We’ve seen this exact scenario play out before in the 1993 family comedy Cop and a Half starring Burt Reynolds, and now that premise is being revived for a reboot.

Cop and a Half: New Recruit sees Lou Diamond Phillips playing a detective not all that dissimilar from the one Burt Reynolds played in the original 1993 version. But this time, the cop in question is teamed up with a spunky 12-year old girl (Lulu Wilson of Ouija: Origin of Evil and Annabelle: Creation) eager to lay down the law. Believe it or not, this is a real movie getting released next week and you can watch the trailer right now. Read More »

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 witness the power of sheer will to get a movie made, visit with a Disney tween heartthrob who would become a serial killer, get our kid out of the house and into college, find love on the farm, and try not to get shot to death by the police.

the vault trailer

“Crime does not pay,” the trailer for The Vault ham-fistedly declares. But it’s probably a very accurate description for the heist thriller-turned-horror-movie that is The Vault.

In James Franco‘s one-millionth project this year (does the guy never sleep?), he stars as a mild-mannered bank manager with a mustache who finds his bank being robbed by two sisters (Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood). But this this isn’t just a nuts-and-bolts thriller as the tables are turned when Franco’s manager unlocks the true horrific nature of The Vault.

Comrade Detective trailer

Amazon has unveiled the first trailer for its new series Comrade Detective, and while I think a lot of you are really going to dig this show, it might be a little too niche for mainstream audiences.

It’s being presented as a long-lost, hard-boiled Romanian cop show from the 1980s that’s recently been found and restored by Channing Tatum, who executive produces the show and has dubbed over the lead actor’s voice with his own. Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nick Offerman, Jenny Slate, Mahershala Ali, and tons of other great actors all contribute voiceovers, too. Check out the explosive first trailer below.
