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 Donnie Darko gets a 4K re-release, the new Captain Kirk narrates a story of some overly ambitious high schoolers, Fat Mike learns a thing a two about running a music label because he’s seen a thing or two, we try and earn a few bitcoins, and North Korea lets in an industrial band to play a few tunes for the people.  Read More »

Fences Trailer - Denzel Washington

Awards season is heating up, and today we get a better glimpse at what is sure to be one of the key contenders.

Fences is an adaptation of August Wilson‘s play of the same name with Denzel Washington directing, not to mention reprising the role that won him a Tony Award back in 2010 for his performance on Broadway. His stage co-star Viola Davis is also joining him, and if the new Fences trailer is any indicator, the two have clearly delivered Oscar caliber performances that will likely land them nominations when the time comes next year.

Emerald City trailer

If you’ve ever watched The Wizard of Oz and wished it played more like a low-rent version of Game of Thrones — or, conversely, if you’ve ever watched Game of Thrones and thought it could use some Wizard of Oz insanity — then Emerald City might be for you. The new NBC series from Tarsem Singh reimagines L. Frank Baum’s classic adventure as a grown-up fantasy drama. A young cop named Dorthy Game is whisked off to a far-off realm where she must contend with witches, warriors, sky portals, and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Goon Last of the Enforcers trailer

Canadian Thanksgiving came and went over a month ago, but American Thanksgiving takes place this week. So consider this a little holiday gift from our neighbors in the north. The first trailer for Goon: Last of the Enforcers brings back Seann William Scott as hockey enforcer Doug Glatt. Though he’s retired now, the sequel sees him lured back to the ice in search of glory.

Liev Schreiber returns as his professional rival, and Alison Pill as his love interest. Elisha Cuthbert and Wyatt Russell have also joined the cast. Jay Baruchel, who co-wrote and co-starred in the first film, makes his feature directing debut with Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Check out the Goon: Last of the Enforcers trailer below.

Passengers trailer: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt

I suspect a great many people would be perfectly happy to find themselves stranded in space with nothing to do but make out with Chris Pratt and/or Jennifer Lawrence and trade witticisms with a robot bartender who looks like Michael Sheen. But the characters in Passengers apparently don’t feel that way. In the new sci-fi romance directed by Morten Tyldum, Jim (Pratt) and Aurora (Lawrence) are panicked to realize they’ve come out of hibernation 90 years early en route to another planet.

To be fair, it looks like they’ve got good reason to freak out. It slowly dawns on them that they were woken up for a reason, that they’re in great danger, and that there’s very little they can do about their imminent doom. Now, if it were me, I’d probably just go back to that robot bartender and keep drinking until the bitter end. But there’s a reason no one’s making movies about me. Jim and Aurora are more proactive types, who set out to get to the truth about their situation and prevent the worst from happening. Watch the Passengers trailer below. Read More »

Girls Season 6 Trailer and Crashing Season 1 Teaser

HBO’s current run of original programming is winding down before the end of the year. Westworld, Divorce and Insecure will all have their season finales in the next few weeks, but they’ll all be back with second seasons, presumably around the same time of the year in 2017. That means it’s time to look ahead at HBO’s original programming coming early next year, and that includes the end of one of their hit shows, and the first season for an all-new comedy series.

The final trailer for Lena Dunham‘s hit series Girls has arrived online along with the first trailer for Crashing, the new comedy series starring comedian and former late night host Pete Holmes. Watch them both after the jump. Read More »

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 12 Trailer

Early next year, we return to the city of brotherly love to see what kind of shenanigans the crew of Paddy’s Pub will be up to when the 12th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres on FXX. It’s crazy to think that the series has been running this long, and it even has an order for its 13th and 14th seasons already placed. And if this new trailer for this season is an indicator, things are only going to get more out of hand.

A red-band It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12 trailer has just popped up online, and it’s far more raunchy than anything we’ve seen from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. I’m talking about words that you normally don’t hear on cable channels other than HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, plus a couple of dildos, some discussion of being paid for sex and much more.

See all the madness below, but beware that the language is totally NSFW. Read More »

Inner Workings Short

Pixar Animation already covered what happens with our emotions with Inside Out last year. Now Walt Disney Animation is taking a crack at showing us what happens inside our bodies with their latest animated short.

Inner Workings hails from a story artist at Disney named Leo Matsuda, who previously worked on Big Hero 6 and Wreck-It Ralph. As you’ll see in the Inner Workings short teaser trailer after the jump, the heart, brain and lungs are our main characters, attempting to control the whims of a man who is stuck in a mundane job. Will his head or his heart win out? Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

The Book of Love Trailer

As we get closer to the end of the year, we’re starting to get trailers for movies that are getting unceremoniously dumped in January so as to have little to no competition with early spring blockbusters, the prime summer tentpoles or the previous month’s awards contenders. One of those is a new comedy that played at Tribeca under the title The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea, but now it has a new title and a telling release date.

The Book of Love has a promising cast featuring Jason Sudeikis and Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams in the story of a widower who sets out to help a young homeless girl build a vessel so she can literally set sail on a metaphorical new path for her life.
