Sense8 trailer

The Wachowskis link eight lives in an usual way in their new Netflix series Sense8, and the debut Sense8 trailer shows some of the repercussions and benefits of being deeply linked to several other people at once. This is a break for the filmmakers, who have consistently worked in big-budget arenas ever since The Matrix became a massive hit in 1999. Now they’ve scaled back, and the results look interesting. Check out the trailer here. Read More »

Ricki and the Flash trailer

In Ricki and the Flash, Meryl Streep plays a woman whose career as the frontwoman of a rock band seems to be kind of fading (she’s playing clubs, not massive stadiums), but a trip home in order to support her adult child in a for a moment of crisis forces her to confront the many aftereffects of putting her music career before her family. And because this is Meryl Streep (being directed by Jonathan Demme, no less, from a script by Diablo Cody) she makes the process of wringing tears out of audiences look pretty effortless.

Check out the Ricki and the Flash trailer below, and keep an eye out for Meryl’s amazing American flag back tattoo. What’s the story behind that? Read More »

Human Centipede 3 trailer

Has writer/director Tom Six gone full Sharknado with The Human Centipede 3 [Final Sequence]? This latest Human Centipede 3 trailer shows that this second sequel to the conceptually-disgusting original film is not only self-referential (Tom Six is even in this one) and histrionic, but deliberately goofy and tongue-in-cheek. I guess that’s better than the tongue being lodged somewhere else, as this trailer will show.

Note: This isn’t a red-band trailer but it is a trailer for a Human Centipede movie, so you’ll have to apply your own wisdom with respect to watching at work. Read More »

Magic Mike XXL

Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike was a thoughtful examination of the American dream, but of course the real draw was the gyrating hardbodies on stage. So far, Magic Mike XXL seems to be leaning into that raunchy appeal, with a marketing campaign heavy on half-naked torsos and naughty puns. Not that we’re complaining.

The newest Magic Mike XXL trailer continues in the same vein, commenting on how hard (wink wink) it was to resist showing off all the best parts (nudge nudge) of the movie. Even so, there’s plenty to enjoy here. Feast your eyes on the new Magic Mike XXL trailer after the jump. Read More »

Mr Holmes trailer

Being famous kinda sucks sometimes, especially if you’re the most famous detective in the land. Sherlock Holmes seems to be more perturbed by fame and the misunderstandings that come with it than his is by the encroachment of old age in this Mr Holmes trailer. Ian McKellen plays the celebrated sleuth in this take on the character’s later days from director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters). And by the look of this trailer, that team has crafted a version of Sherlock Holmes that will appeal to die-hard fans and more casual viewers alike.

The Strain S2 trailer

This full trailer for the new season of The Strain is full of big makeup and effects shots, and a promise that the show’s concept of Manhattan overrun by vampires will really boil over into insanity this year. And that’s half of what we want to see from the show; the other half is something that’s harder to get across in a one-minute trailer, and that’s further character development. But we’ll take the thrill of the effects for now. Check out The Strain S2 trailer below. Read More »

new San Andreas Trailer

Despite the devastating earthquake that recently rocked Nepal, the Warner Bros. blockbuster San Andreas starring Dwayne Johnson is still hitting theaters at the end of the month. The studio is, however, making sure its worldwide marketing campaign is modified in order to be more sensitive to those dealing with the aftermath of the natural disaster. And now one more piece of promotion for the film has arrived: a somber new San Andreas trailer. Read More »

Absolutely Anything

If you’re a superhero, the saying goes that with great power comes with great responsibility. If you’re a supervillain, you’re terrible proof of the truism that absolute power corrupts absolutely. If you’re just some ordinary Joe, though, total power first offers an excuse to make a predictable dick joke.

That’s the takeaway from the first Absolutely Anything trailer, in which Neil (Simon Pegg) discovers he suddenly has the power to do, well, absolutely anything. His first instinct is to give himself a better body, a talking dog (voiced by Robin Williams), and a better look at a hot neighbor (Kate Beckinsale) who lives downstairs.

Terry Jones directed, and he and his Monty Python castmates (Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, John Cleese, and Michael Palin) voice the aliens who give Neil that power in the first place. Watch the Absolutely Anything trailer after the jump.  Read More »

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 get overtaken by giant human beings, work hard for dat cheddar only to get American Cheese, find something special in lo-fi horror, and get exposed to something far more disturbing than It Follows.
