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 take a look at Slowhand, take a look down under for some swinging good times in the 70s, think about the societal impact of the art we create, check in with the French dairy farmer who got smoked for hiding some Jewish folk under his house, and just sit back while we get weirded out by a completely original vision from Estonia.

Disobedience Trailer

Rachel McAdams once put aside her love for Ryan Gosling in the sappy romance The Notebook for fear of upsetting her parents. Rachel Weisz also once partook in a secret relationship with Colin Farrell in The Lobster. Now, the two actresses face another forbidden love, but this time the relationship is condemned by the religion they were raised with.

Disobedience follows Rachel Weisz as Ronit, the black sheep of an Orthodox Jewish family living in London. She’s been spending her years in New York as a photographer, in stark contrast to the life she was meant to lead with her family. After her father (a revered rabbi in the community) dies, she returns home only to find her past waiting for her in a way that will stir up controversy in her family all over again. Read More »

November trailer

If a folklorist drank an entire bottle of cough syrup, passed out and had their fever dreams somehow captured on film, the result might look something like November. This gorgeous Estonian fantasy-drama-horror-something from director Rainer Sarnet defies classification, and must be seen to be believed. Feast your eyes on the visually stunning November trailer below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

the young karl marx

First, it was a Young Pope, in the form of Jude Law. Then we received a Young Shakespeare, courtesy of TNT’s edgy series, Will. Then we were gifted Young Dumbledore, again in the form of Jude Law. I’m not suggesting that there is a cinematic universe of young, sexy versions of famous figures (the majority of them looking like Jude Law), but seeing the rollout of several film and TV projects centered around a “young” figure is a little funny.

And that brings us to The Young Karl Marx, a French-German movie that is not in the least bit funny, though it is a tad sexy. Starring Inglourious Basterds scene-stealer August Diehl as the titular young Marx, The Young Karl Marx comes from Raoul Peck, fresh off the acclaim of his documentary I Am Not Your Negro. But the name that will likely grab your attention is Vicky Krieps, the breakout star of awards season darling Phantom Thread.

Game Night Trailer

The last time Rachel McAdams got caught up in R-rated comedy shenanigans, it was in Wedding Crashers back in 2005. Now, she’s teamed up with Jason Bateman for what promises to be a deadly hilarious couples’ night.

solo a star wars story trailer debut

Update: It turns out that everyone was one day off. It now looks like the Solo trailer will debut on Good Morning America this Monday, February 5. Our original article follows.

“Where’s the Solo trailer?” has been the resounding question in the sci-fi fan community for the past few months. The Star Wars standalone film is merely four months away from release, and we haven’t heard a peep out of Lucasfilm or Disney — highly unusual for a tentpole film in one of the biggest franchises in the world.

Solo: A Star Wars Story has had a troubled journey to the big screen and the silence around the film is just as concerning as the behind-the-scenes tales of production woes. But new reports suggest that we finally have a (probable) release date for the Solo trailer: the Super Bowl.

the week of trailer

Adam Sandler and Chris Rock have gotten together for a handful of comedies like Grown Ups and The Longest Yard, but they’ve never really shared a lot of screentime together. But in a new Netflix original film, they’ll be spending plenty of time getting on each others’ nerves.

The Week Of follows the Saturday Night Live veterans as two fathers who are coming together so their kids can be married. In the week leading up to the wedding, everything can and does go wrong, and these two are not making it any easier on anyone. Read More »
