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 »
Jason Momoa is probably only a small part of Wolves, the movie from writer/director David Hayter, but he looks like one of the best parts. Hayter jumps from screenwriter (X-Men, Watchmen) and voice actor (he was Solid Snake in the Metal Gear Solid games until Kiefer Sutherland took over) to feature director. Wolves is about — brace yourself — a bunch of werewolves. Lucas Till plays a high school kid who has some hairy stuff developing in his blood. He hits the road and ends up in a town full of secrets and werewolves. I’m sure there’s a coming of age metaphor here somewhere, but you’ll have to give me a minute to pin it down. In the meantime, watch the Wolves red-band trailer below. Read More »

Often the release of a red-band trailer means that we’re going to see way too much from a film that is still weeks from release. But in the case of this Stretch red-band trailer, it shows off stuff from a movie you can watch right now. Universal may have decided that Joe Carnahan‘s late-night whackadoo adventure wasn’t a theatrical bet on which it wanted to gamble, but the movie is on digital outlets and VOD right now. So you can see Patrick Wilson as a limo driver, Chris Pine as a rich kook, Ed Helms as, well, a ghost, I guess, and a whole bunch of other people too.
This trailer embraces being adults-only; it’s got violence, cursing, nudity, and a lot of weird stuff. It isn’t safe for work, but it might just be as crazy as the film. Read More »
Here’s the great red-band trailer for Dear White People, which looks like a very funny comedy exploring culture clashes, stereotypes and racism on a college campus. You’ll meet a bunch of characters in this trailer, or at least you’ll start to get acquainted with some of the faces they present on campus, and the ways in which they collide. This Dear White People red-band trailer isn’t all that explicit, but there are a couple moments where you’ll want headphones if you’re at work.

So Katherine Heigl and Patrick Wilson star in Home Sweet Hell, a vision of a very messy marriage. Wilson plays the former used-car salesman husband, and Heigl the woman who has smoothed him out over the years. But he’s having an affair, with Jordana Brewster, and when she claims to be pregnant, Heigl’s character responds with murderous intent. Heigl is actually in a sort of Lisa Kudrow mode here as she orders murder in the most peppy, up-beat manner. (Shades of Serial Mom come to mind, too.) This Home Sweet Hell red-band trailer is somewhat cute and not safe for work. Read More »

Nestled in among all the family-friendly holiday releases and prestigious Oscar hopefuls this Christmas will be The Interview, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s follow-up to This Is the End. Rogen does double duty as one of the film’s leads, a TV producer named Aaron Rapoport who runs a popular celebrity tabloid TV show starring the charismatic Dave Skylark (James Franco).
In an attempt to get ambitious, the pair score a rare interview with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (Randall Park) — and then quickly find themselves way in over their heads when they’re recruited by CIA agent Lacey (Lizzy Caplan) to take him out. And she doesn’t mean for drinks. Or to dinner. Watch The Interview red band (NSFW) trailer after the jump.
