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.

As a format, VHS is dead, but as a horror movie franchise, V/H/S is doing very well. For the third year in a row, we’re getting one of these found-footage anthologies, with another new crop of filmmakers. And it looks every bit as nutty, creepy, gross, and bizarre as the earlier installments did. Check out the new V/H/S: Viral red-band (i.e., NSFW) trailer after the jump.

The best thing about the ABC’s of Death franchise is they have 26 chances to get it right. Twenty-six short films, combined into one, offering up the most brutal, disgusting, disturbing or hilarious methods of death imaginable directed by a laundry list of talented directors. If you don’t like one letter, there are plenty more to go and even if one or two really stick with you, the film has done its job.
The sequel ABC’s of Death 2 comes to iTunes and On Demand October 2 before hitting theaters October 31. Directors such as Alejandro Brugues, Bill Plympton, Larry Fessenden, Rodney Ascher and Vincenzo Natali are just a few of the filmmakers who are part of the fun this time around and a brand new red-band trailer is out, showcasing their madness. This is as red-band as red-band gets, with some absolutely stomach churning violence. It’s not safe for work, but it’s a lot of fun if you like this sort of thing. Check out the new ABCs of Death 2 Red Band trailer below. Read More »
What if the catacombs segment in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was the setup for a horror movie, rather than an adventure film set piece? Ben Feldman (Mad Men), Perdita Weeks (The Great Fire), and Edwin Hodge (The Purge: Anarchy) star in As Above So Below as a crew of budding urban archaeologists who seek a hidden truth in the catacombs beneath Paris.
They find something else: shadows of their past incarnated in visions that have the power to do more than just spook each kid. This As Above So Below extended red-band trailer features blood, fore, and plenty of weirdness as the crew finds what might be the gate to their own personal hell. Read More »
Here’s what you need to know about Wetlands: Carla Juri, who plays the central character, is terrific in it. She gives one of the most magnetic performances I’ve seen all year; she’s captivating to watch, no matter what goes on in the film. And Wetlands definitely tries to push buttons. Juri plays a young woman who has slightly more exaggerated relationship with sex and her body than most people. She’s given to flights of fancy, and impulsive behavior. After she suffers an intimate and unusual injury she’s put in a position where many of her simmering problems come to the surface. Check out the Wetlands trailer below. (Technically this isn’t a red-band trailer, but you should probably approach it as if it were.)

Could it be career rehab time for Gerard Depardieu? Abel Ferrara, who made audiences see Harvey Keitel in a harsh new light when he made the original Bad Lieutenant, has cast Depardieu as a vague analogue of embattled IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn. Ferrara scripted with Christ Zois, and Jacqueline Bisset co-stars. While it’s difficult to pull too much story out of this Welcome to New York trailer, the edit is definitely not safe for work as it is a parade of partying, partial nudity, and shadowy dealings. Watch after the jump. Read More »
/Film is proud to exclusively debut the red-band trailer for Premature. Co-written and directed by Dan Beers, Premature opens in theaters and On Demand on July 2.
In the mold of another big summer film, Premature takes the time travel conceit made popular by Groundhog Day and grafts it onto another genre. Edge of Tomorrow did the same sort of thing with sci-fi action; here, Beers does it with raunchy teen comedy.
Imagine reliving the worst, most embarrassing day of your life and over and over again. That day that includes the lead having an opportunity with the girl of his dreams, only to, well, provide the title of the movie. Premature stars John Karna (Bindlestiffs), Craig Roberts (Submarine, The First Time), Katie Findlay (The Philosophers, “The Killing”) and Alan Tudyk (Dodgeball, Wreck It Ralph). Below, check out the hilarious Premature red-band trailer, exclusively on /Film. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz are both going back to raunchy comedy under director Jake Kasdan. In Sex Tape, the couple make exactly what the title suggests. But it’s a heat of the moment thing, and in the morning they try to delete the video (recorded on an iPad) only to find that it has been uploaded to the cloud, and shared with all their friends and family. Maybe worry less here about the precise “how” of that process, and just focus on the fact that this is a weird R-rated comedy where product placement and tech paranoia collide like, well, a couple having sex.
And if you’ve wondered just what goes on in the sex tape the couple makes, this new Sex Tape red-band trailer gives up some details. (Spoiler: their checklist is ‘The Joy of Sex.’) Read More »
