In Dying of the Light Nicolas Cage plays an intelligence agent who wants to do something worth remembering. Based on the Dying of the Light trailer, Nic Cage may not achieve the same thing in this movie.
We’ve followed the film’s strange history for a while: scripted by Paul Schrader, Dying of the Light was originally going to be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, with Harrison Ford in the lead. But Ford and Refn had creative differences and that version fell apart. Eventually Schrader directed the film with Cage starring and Refn acting as exec producer. But there has been conflict between Schrader and the film’s primary producers, resulting in a final edit that does not involve the director. Check out the trailer below to see a representation of what will hit theaters in December. Read More »

Thought billionaire playboys made for unlikely vigilantes? You haven’t met Miss Meadows, the heroine of Karen Leigh Hopkins‘ offbeat indie thriller of the same title. Played by Katie Holmes, this prim and proper elementary school looks so sugar-sweet, bluebirds literally follow her around while she tap-dances down the street. But what her community doesn’t know is that when they’re not looking, she moonlights as a pistol-packing avenger.
This is obviously a big problem for the bad guys in her town but it also proves a headache for local law enforcement, represented by James Badge Dale. Especially once he starts falling for her. Hit the jump to see the new Miss Meadows trailer.

Here’s a new trailer for Bennett Miller‘s new film Foxcatcher before it hits theaters in November. Previous looks at the film have been brief, and little more than shadowy glimpses at the story of a rich man (Steve Carell) who opens a state of the art facility in a bid to train wrestlers for the US Olympic team. This time we get just a bit more story as we see a young wrestling hopeful (Channing Tatum) ally himself with Carell’s potentially unstable character in order to step out from the shadow of the success of his older brother (Mark Ruffalo). Check out what could be the final Foxcatcher trailer below. Read More »
It’s easy enough to describe the story in Sion Sono‘s Why Don’t You Play in Hell — a skin-of-the-teeth filmmaking group calling itself the Fuck Bombers gets involved in a yakuza rivalry, and is given the opportunity to make the ultimate gangster movie by filming the collision between two gangs. But it is almost impossible to describe the total whackadoo spirit of the film, in which nothing seems out of bounds, and in which Sono never casts aside an idea as too difficult or out there. The Why Don’t You Play in Hell trailer only starts to get across just how fervent, energetic and entertainingly indulgent this movie can be, but it’s a good start. Read More »
“How much trouble can one poet be?” Quite a lot, perhaps. In Set Fire to the Stars, Elijah Wood plays John M. Brinnin, an American poet and critic who has the task of coordinating the first trip to the US undertaken by poet Dylan Thomas. Played by Celyn Jones, Thomas turns out to be, as his reputation suggests, larger than life, and a difficult personality to manage. Brinnin is tested as he tries to keep Thomas on track. See the Set Fire to the Stars trailer below. Read More »
Jean-Luc Godard releases his thirty-ninth film this year, and his first in 3D. The film, Goodbye to Language, is an experimental effort that takes an approach to 3D that has been called radical and even game-changing. (Though we probably won’t see anyone using 3D in this manner for a conventional film any time soon.) The film premiered at Cannes, where it shared the Jury Prize with Xavier Dolan’s film Mommy; now you can see the first Goodbye to Language trailer from US distributor Kino Lorber.
Héloise Godet, Jessica Erickson, Kamel Abdeli, Richard Chevallier, Alexandre Païta and Zoé Bruneau all star in a film that appears to be about the structure of film itself. This isn’t a typical narrative, and it appears to be one that goes even further out than some of Godard’s recent work. I can’t wait to see it. This trailer seems like a pale representation, but we’ll take it for now. Read More »

Werner Herzog wants to teach you about penguins. We had no idea that the filmmaker with one of the world’s best voices had lent his talents to the DreamWorks Animation spin-off The Penguins of Madagascar. And yet here he is, as the voice of a documentarian leading a crew shooting footage of penguins in their natural habitat. Herzog’s presence in a kids film turns out to be just as great as you’d hope. As March of the Penguins parodies go, the only way this could be any better is if Morgan Freeman’s omniscient narrator showed up to get into a fist-fight with Herzog’s documentarian. Check out the Werner Herzog Penguins of Madagascar appearance in the extended clip below. Read More »
