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 I witness abject horror at a Michael Shannon performance that must have been done to pay some back taxes or a Superbowl bet gone bad, we hunt us some Nazis, get animated about a girl trying to save her family, try to play nice with the ex-boyfriend, realize how much money we don’t have, and go on a dark road trip with our brother.  Read More »

Pottersville trailer

The time has come for Michael Shannon to star in a Christmas-themed comedy. You probably never thought you’d live to see this day, but it’s here at last, in all its glory. In the new film Pottersville, Shannon leads a surprisingly strong cast in a film that seems like it’s some sort of elaborate leg-pull, but is in fact a real movie. There’s even a trailer! You can watch it below and everything!

Counterpart trailer

What’s better than J.K. Simmons? How about another J.K. Simmons? In the wild new Starz series Counterpart, Simmons pulls double duty, playing two different characters from literally two different worlds. The new Counterpart trailer teases a show that’s a blend of sci-fi and espionage, and it looks like it has the makings of something great.

The Disaster Artist trailer

Writer, director, actor and fashion icon Tommy Wiseau unleashed The Room upon unsuspecting audiences in 2003, creating a film that would achieve cult status as one of the very best worst movies ever made. Wiseau’s filmmaking skills may have been wildly inept, but he was committed to his dream. Wiseau’s story, and the making of The Room, gets the biopic treatment in James Franco‘s The Disaster Artist, and an brand new trailer reveals an extend look at one of the year’s most anticipated films.

downsizing trailer

Alexander Payne, the director of Election, The Descendants, and Nebraska, is doing something totally different for his newest movie. Downsizing – a film that features Matt Damon as a character who shrinks down to be only five inches tall – has the most fantastical premise he’s dealt with yet, but a brand new trailer for the movie has shifted my perspective in a big way about what exactly is in store for us when the film arrives this holiday season.

daddy's home 2 trailer

The new Daddy’s Home 2 trailer makes two things immediately clear. First, this is very much a holiday movie, a comedy that leans heavily into its Christmas iconography and looks to attract families who want to sit in silence and not talk to each other for a few hours. Second, this movie looks loud. Seriously. Like Transformers loud. Everything in this trailer is pitched to 11 and I’m pretty sure it broke my old man ear drums.

ghost stories trailer

From the ’60s output of Hammer and Amicus to Danny Boyle’s reinvention of the zombie genre with 28 Days Later, the United Kingdom has always been a dependable source of thrills and chills. There’s just something special about horror movies with an English accent. Now, a new movie called Ghost Stories looks to add its name to the nation’s line-up of must-see genre movies and all of the right pieces seem to be here: creepy stories, a wry tone, and the presence of strong actors like Martin Freeman to lend credibility to the whole thing. Oh, and it’s a horror anthology telling three (seemingly!) unrelated tales, so toss some bonus points its way for that.

The first Ghost Stories trailer has arrived…well, actually the first three Ghost Stories trailers have arrived, teasing the film’s three narratives, and you can watch them now.
