Sundance, that January institution, is coming to movie theaters and VOD now, in June. The festival which opens each year in film was the debut of some great films for 2015. Many are now in theaters, or arriving shortly: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope, and The End of The Tour, for example.
The latest is The Overnight, a very funny film that features Taylor Schilling and Adam Scott who, with their young son, relocate to Los Angeles. They’ve got some anxieties to deal with, and some sex problems, but once they meet a local couple played by Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche it seems like some of their social worries might be over.
The movie kicks into gear with raunchy comedy right in the first scene, leading into good scenes that lay out some of the problems facing this young couple. Check out The Overnight opening, featuring a few very not safe for work scenes, below. Read More »

If it seems like we’ve been pushing a lot of Dope trailers the past couple months, that’s because we firmly believe that everyone needs to see this fantastic indie teen comedy when it hits theaters starting next week.
The sensation from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival is a refreshing coming-of-age adventure from the inner-city, and it’s the kind of indie we always hope to discover on the festival circuit. So here we are with a second red band trailer showing off the lively and fun film from writer and director Rick Famuyiwa. Imagine taking Superbad and setting it in tough, urban Los Angeles, and you begin to have an idea of what Dope is like, but it also stands on its own merits. Watch the second Dope red band trailer after the jump! Read More »

The premise of a married couple losing their sexual mojo after having a kid isn’t new, but Patrick Brice‘s The Overnighters seems to take it in some unexpected directions. The husband and wife in question are played by Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling, and they’re still adjusting to a recent move to Los Angeles.
Eager to make friends, they accept an invitation from a cool hipster dad played by Jason Schwartzman. But once they arrive for their “playdate” with him and his wife (Judith Godrèche), things get weird. Watch The Overnight red-band(that means NSFW) trailer after the jump. Read More »
Seth MacFarlane‘s comedy is at its best when there are no boundaries whatsoever. Which is why the red band trailer is his bread and butter. You never quite know what a MacFarlane film is until you see the red band.
We’ve already seen one red band trailer for Ted 2 and now a new Ted 2 Red Band trailer is out. This one is incredibly economical, as it starts with a familiar sci-fi spoof on a popular trailer, and then packs as many F-bomb and drug jokes as possible into the next 70 seconds. The sequel stars Mark Wahlberg, Amanda Seyfried, Morgan Freeman and opens June 26. Watch the new Ted 2 red band trailer below. Read More »
Think of the most unlikely action hero ever and the name Jesse Eisenberg might come up. Which is exactly why the red band trailer for American Ultra is so surprising. Directed by Nima Nourizadeh (Project X) and written by Max Landis (Chronicle), American Ultra is about a young man (Eisenberg) who wants to propose to his girlfriend (Kirsten Stewart) but is then revealed to be a sleeper agent, super spy. The main difference between him and other spies though is he’s a huge stoner, slacker.
Co-starring Topher Grace, Connie Britton, John Leguizamo and others, American Ultra opens August 21. Check out the first American Ultra trailers below.
UPDATE: We’ve added a green band trailer to go along with Thursdays red band. Read More »

Sexual assault is a tricky subject to tackle, as the outcry over that Game of Thrones rape scene reminded us so very recently. Too often it’s treated like just another crazy twist, rather than a grim reality that millions of people have to live with every day. Thankfully, that’s not the case in Felt, Jason Banker‘s character study-turned-thriller from Fantastic Fest 2014.
Starring and based on the experiences of Amy Everson, Felt follows an artist dealing with the fallout of sexual trauma in a most unusual way: by crafting grotesque costumed alter egos for herself. Her behavior alienates some of the people around her, but eventually she falls into a relationship with Kenny (Kentucker Audley). Watch the Felt red band trailer after the jump. (There’s also an all-ages version if you’re at work.) Read More »
Dope has been making waves since Sundance, but the first trailers have only partially showed off what’s really up with the film. This new Dope red-band trailer goes a lot further, by presenting the characters uncensored, and by showing off a lot more of the story that drives the film. It’s more than a sunny tale of three high school kids (played well by Shameik Moore, Kiersey Clemons, and Tony Revolori) trying to survive school and their neighborhood, after all. Check out the trailer below to find out more. Read More »
We’ve been hearing all sorts of positive buzz from behind the scenes about Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema’s reboot of the comedy classic Vacation. The film was bumped up from an initial fall release to a much more confident summer date, and now the first red band trailer has arrived to show us what all the fuss was about. Surprisingly, this looks absolutely hilarious. Watch the Vacation red band trailer after the jump. Read More »
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 »
