The impending arrival of new Ben Wheatley movie is always a cause for celebration. The genius (yes, I’ll break out the “G” word) behind films like Kill List, Sightseers, and High-Rise has been a favorite of mine for years, leaping between genres while maintaining his signature dark comedy and unflinching ability to sell genuine pain and terror. His new film, Free Fire, is built around a premise that is simultaneously old school and high concept: two groups of criminals in 1970s Boston arrange an arms deal in an old warehouse, things go south, guns are drawn…and they proceed to engage in a gun battle that plays out over the course of the entire movie, mostly in real time.
The first Free Fire trailer has arrived (in bloody, NSFW red band form!) and you can check it out below.

Last month brought the horror thriller Lights Out to theaters, and plenty were terrified by the dark all over again. Now darkness looks to be even more terrifying in the forthcoming horror thriller Don’t Breathe. The film from Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez horrified audiences at the South by Southwest film festival earlier this year, and now it’s coming to theaters in just over a couple weeks. If the first teaser trailer wasn’t enough to unnerve you, then this new red band trailer should really push your buttons. There’s no nudity, just some blood and salty language, so it’s only a little NSFW. Read More »
Let’s get this out of the way right now. If you’re already on board for the raunchy, R-rated animated comedy Sausage Party from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg, then you probably shouldn’t watch the new red band trailer that was just released. However, if you’re the kind of person that likes to watch all the trailers, then we can’t stop you from watching this latest tease that reveals much more about what happens after Frank the hot dog (voiced by Seth Rogen) learns what happens to food after it goes to the “great beyond” outside of the grocery store.
It’s up to you whether you watch the new red band Sausage Party trailer after the jump. Read More »
Following her breakthrough performance in True Grit, the future looked promising for young actress Hailee Steinfeld. Since then, she’s taken on a variety of roles ranging from the likes of satisfactory films such as Begin Again and Ender’s Game to more disappointing projects such as Three Days to Kill and Barely Lethal. But she really got a chance to show a different side to herself in Pitch Perfect 2. Now it appears we’ll get to see Steinfeld blossom into a more mature actress.
In what could serve as the spark towards a career that resembles something like the career of Chloe Grace Moretz or Elle Fanning, we have The Edge of Seventeen trailer. The film is produced by James L. Brooks, the producer of films such as Jerry Maguire and the writer/director of Broadcast News, Terms of Endearment and As Good As It Gets, and it looks like an outstanding coming of age story.

Kids are getting up to some pretty crazy things nowadays with their Tinder and their Pokemon Go, and hopefully a bright future that combines promiscuous dating and Nintendo in a single app somehow. Still, it’s a safe bet that most youths of today don’t get caught up in the kind of risky and risque shenanigans that are on display in the first trailer for the indie flick White Girl.
Marking the directing debut of Elizabeth Wood, the film follows a young girl who isn’t shy about her sex life, usually involving casual drug use. But her wild lifestyle gets a little more crazy when a young drug dealer she starts dating gets arrested, leaving her with a bunch of cocaine and a big decision to make.

In a few weeks we’ll see Alexander Skarsgård as king of the jungle in The Legend of Tarzan, but later this year he’ll get in touch with his wild side in an entirely different way. Directed by John Michael McDonagh (The Guard, Calvary), War on Everyone stars Skarsgård and Michael Peña as two very corrupt cops who get in over their heads in New Mexico. If Shane Black’s The Nice Guys left you wanting more in the “pitch-black buddy action-comedy” subgenre, War on Everyone should have you covered.
War on Everyone hit Berlin and SXSW earlier this year to strong reviews, and now it’s gearing up for a theatrical release in the U.K. (No U.S. release date has been announced yet, alas.) As smuch, the first War on Everyone red-band trailer has just arrived, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »
For every film festival movie that hits all the expected cliches, whether it’s troubled romance, coming-of-age, or dysfunctional families, there’s always one movie that goes against the grain of everything. And that’s where The Greasy Strangler comes into play.
From The ABCs of Death 2 segment director Jim Hosking comes a positively nuts feature film debut that feels like the insanity of Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim turned up to 11 and made even more gross and revolting. Honestly, I have no idea what’s going on in this movie or why, and that’s probably why I’ll end up watching it.

Continuing the deal for Adam Sandler to make movies exclusively for Netflix, a new R-rated action comedy is coming to the streaming service this weekend. The Do-Over reunites Sandler with his Saturday Night Live buddy David Spade in a movie that feels straight out of the 1990s. Adam Sandler plays a bit of a badass who decides to help his old high school friend (Spade) out by fixing his boring life. The only problem is he does that by faking their deaths and giving them new identities that get them into some serious trouble.

Last month brought us the first trailer for Swiss Army Man, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert‘s (in)famous Sundance dramedy about a desperate man stranded all alone on a desert island (Paul Dano), until he stumbles across a flatulent corpse (Daniel Radcliffe). With a description like that, Swiss Army Man‘s marketing was never going to be appropriate for polite company — but if you walked away thinking that first green-band trailer was still a bit too tasteful, today we’ve got the Swiss Army Man red-band trailer to share with you.
This cut of the Swiss Army Man trailer actually does a better job of capturing the utter rudeness and surprising poignancy of Swiss Army Man, though it arguably also gives away too much. Manny (as Radcliffe’s dead body is called) first proves useful when his farts help propel Hank (Dano) across the surf, but it turns out this “multi-purpose tool guy,” as Hank calls him, has a lot of other tricks up his sleeve as well. Watch the Swiss Army Man red-band trailer below. Read More »
Since Mother’s Day is coming up this weekend, there’s no better time to unleash the Bad Moms trailer. Mila Kunis is sick of trying to be the perfect mother, so she decides to just take a break from trying to please everyone all the time and just live it up. Joining her for the carefree lifestyle change are Kristen Bell and Kathryn Hahn while Christina Applegate plays the uppity, high-strung PTA mother who is not about to let them get away with their reckless behavior.
