The truest selling point of a Seth MacFarlane film is its red-band trailer. That’s where the writer/director’s humor is on full display and you’re about to get a lot of it in the latest Ted 2 trailer. It’s red-band, so the language is VERY not safe for work and it’s right in that MacFarlane wheel house: bodily fluids, drugs, race and lots of sex.
In Ted 2, Ted and John (Mark Wahlberg) continue to move on with their lives and Ted wants to start a family. Unfortunately, the law says he can’t because he’s not considered a person. So begins a legal battle for Ted’s civil rights lead by lawyer Samantha L. Jackson (Amanda Seyfried). In the Ted 2 red band trailer, there are a bevy of jokes, including some almost full sequences that certainly position the sequel as a likely Summer hit. But will it be as funny or original as the first? Watch and figure it out below. Read More »

The Human Centipede returns, and it is still ridiculous, and still pretty disgusting. Tom Six‘s latest film, which he has said “will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical” of the series, also looks cheaper and somehow even nastier than the rest of the films.
This time the setting is a prison, where an overbearing warden (Dieter Laser, returning to the fold) literally gets prisoners in line by, well, you know the drill by now. You can see the Human Centipede 3 trailer below, if that’s what you’re into — it’s technically a red-band trailer, thanks to a bunch of shots of writhing prisoners. Read More »

In advance of Maps to the Stars‘ release next weekend, Focus Features is squeezing in one last trailer. And it might be the craziest one yet. Which, if you’ve seen the other trailers, is really saying something.
Mia Wasikowska, Julianne Moore, and Robert Pattinson lead the David Cronenberg-directed satire about the unique insanity of modern-day Hollywood. John Cusack, Olivia Williams, Evan Bird, and Sarah Gadon also star. Watch the Maps to the Stars red band trailer after the jump.

This first Straight Outta Compton trailer, which dramatizes the rise of the rap group N.W.A, comes complete with a long intro featuring founding members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre.
In the film, Cube’s son O’Shea Jackson Jr. plays his father, while Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell are Dr. Dre, and Eazy-E respectively. The film follows the late-’80s rise of the group, set against the conservative climate that was freaked out by the vivid portrayal of urban life, and goes at least up to the 1992 riots that were sparked by the beating of Rodney King. This Straight Outta Compton trailer is a full-on red-band edit, with some nudity and the hint of violence, but all the language necessary to represent N.W.A in their prime. It’s a great trailer, watch below. Read More »

Lost in all the commotion surrounding Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview is the question of whether the movie itself is actually worth seeing, for reasons other than patriotism. Personally I’m a fan, but your mileage may vary if you’re not into that kind of thing. So to help you make up your mind, Sony has released one final The Interview red-band trailer. Watch it after the jump. Read More »

Now that the buzz surrounding Spectre has calmed down a bit, it’s time to check in on 2015’s other action-packed thriller about a suave British spy with a taste for finely tailored suits and outrageously advanced gadgets. Fox has just released a new red-band trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service, starring Colin Firth as a secret agent who recruits a street kid (Taron Egerton) into the service.
Matthew Vaughn is directing the film based on a Mark Millar comic, and we all remember how much fun we had the last time that happened. Kingsman: The Secret Service seems to be cut from the same crazy, bloody, “fuck”-filled cloth. Watch the Kingsman The Secret Service red band trailer after the jump. Read More »
Chris Rock is back in full force right now. His new movie, Top Five, which he wrote, directed, and stars in, opens in a couple weeks. And he also wrote an incredible essay for THR on what it’s like to be black in the Hollywood system. Read that link, then come back here to watch the Top Five red-band trailer. This edit has a lot of cursing and a great scene with Kevin Hart alluded to in the essay, but it doesn’t give away the movie’s funniest scene. (Be thankful for that, as the funniest bit is also one of the more unexpected moments.) Read More »
In Unfinished Business, formerly called Business Trip, Vince Vaughn is a guy who starts his own small upstart company after being forced out of a big outfit, only to find himself competing directly against his former colleagues for a big contract. All he’s got on his side is an aging associate (Tom Wilkinson), a too-green newbie (Dave Franco) and a willingness to do anything to win the contract. Ken Scott (Starbuck) directs, and Sienna Miller, James Marsden, and Nick Frost also show up. Now you can see a red-band Unfinished Business trailer — one which certainly doesn’t skimp on vulgarity — and a work-safe green band version, too. Read More »
This Nightcrawler red-band trailer is unusual. Most red-band trailers are restricted because of the language or images contained in the film footage. In this one, most of the foul language comes from critic quotes praising the film. (Though the characters spew a few choice lines, too.)
And, yeah, Nightcrawler is great; as bitingly funny as it is brutally disturbing. Jake Gyllenhaal shines as a very determined man who finds a career path freelancing in scummy late-night cable news. And while some people might find their road to success blocked by little things such as morals or a conscience, this character isn’t much troubled by such things. This trailer doesn’t give much away, but you’ll get to see Gyllenhaal getting into action. Read More »
