SyFy Channel and The Asylum have released an “almost-redband” trailer for the upcoming SyFy channel original movie Sharknado. This film looks beyond ridiculous, and I’m excited to see every horrible minute of it. Watch the new trailer, complete with obvious Jaws-reference, embedded after the jump.

For his latest film as a director, Bobcat Goldthwait goes micro-budget with a found-footage story of the search for Bigfoot. That is, Willow Creek follows a couple as they trek out into the woods where Bigfoot was first caught on film, in order to satisfy the guy’s interest in the story of the monster. There are some real-life sasquatch enthusiasts who play minor characters in the film, but in the end the movie appears to lean towards real horror as the couple goes deep into the woods.
In presenting this trailer, Badass Digest also notes that there’s a lot more humor in the film than is represented here, and that the film’s “central set piece is a bravura piece of tension that is so protracted you could never fit it in a trailer.” Regardless, this is a great trailer that suggests Willow Creek could be a great piece os suspense. Check it out below.

We’ve still got a few years to go before Danny Boyle gets around to that Trainspotting sequel, but in the meantime Jon S. Baird‘s Filth should tide us over nicely.
Also adapted from an Irvine Welsh novel, the dark comedy stars James McAvoy as bad cop Bruce Robertson. And I mean bad: Bruce is corrupt, violent, drug-addicted, and just plain mean. He’ll happily stomp all over his own colleagues on his way to the top. Ultimately, though, he becomes his own biggest threat when his sanity starts to slip. Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, Imogen Poots, and Jim Broadbent also star. Watch the NSFW trailer after the jump.

In The To Do List, Aubrey Plaza plays a high school graduate who decides she needs to make some serious headway (er) into sexual experience before going off to college. Think of a film like Superbad oriented around a female character, and you might have the right frame of mind.
We saw a red-band teaser not long ago, but that seems to have been pulled. Here’s the official red-band look at the film, complete with all the sexually explicit talk you might expect, along with a showing from some of the supporting cast. (Which includes Andy Samberg, Donald Glover, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Connie Britton, Alia Shawkat, Johnny Simmons, Mae Whitman and Clark Gregg.) The winner in this trailer is definitely Bill Hader, who gets to close out the end of this edit with a particularly awkward scene, handled in a way that would likely never happen in real life — which is why it is funny as hell on film.

The early word on Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s apocalyptic comedy This Is the End has been great. The film that began as an expansion of the short Jay and Seth Versus the Apocalypse has really grown up. It reportedly achieves more than a few laughs based on the joke premise of a comedy who’s who (Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Jonah Hill) playing thinly fictionalized versions of themselves as the world goes to hell.
Here’s a new international spot, complemented by a long red-band TV spot, that shows some of the disaster that the actors/characters must face. And speaking of faces, there are character posters for six of the actors. (Why doesn’t Emma Watson get one? At least she gets a lot of play in the red-band spot.) You can see three of them above, and bigger versions of all six are collected in a gallery below. Read More »
This new red-band trailer for The Kings of Summer, from Jordan Vogt-Roberts, does a much better job of capturing the movie’s character, humor, and adolescent unease than the first trailer did. In fact, this is the look at the film that audiences should have had in the first place.
Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, and Moises Arias play three kids who take off into the woods to build their own house over the course of a summer, while Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and Alison Brie play family of a couple of the kids, and actors like Kumail Nanjiani, Mary Lynn Rajskub, and Hannibal Buress show up in comic supporting roles. You’ll see a lot of them in the trailer. A lot of the interaction of the core character trio here is limited to their forest shenanigans, but that’s a great way to get to know them. Read More »

There are a whole lot of great people in Rapture-Palooza, written by Chris Matheson (Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) and directed by Paul Middleditch (Separation City). The film features Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daley as a young couple navigating the slightly hellish landscape of Earth after the Rapture. Craig Robinson is the Antichrist, and Rob Corddry, Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Thomas Lennon, Ana Gasteyer, John Michael Higgins, and Tyler Labine are on hand, too.
Like I said, a lot of great people… so we’ll just pretend for a while that the film looks a lot better than this red-band trailer makes it out to be. Knowing that this was written by the guy who created Bill & Ted helps, and this trailer seems to be angling for some of that spirit, and the weirder moments of the Harold & Kumar movies, too. But a lot of Rapture-Palooza looks a bit like Birdemic, only with recognizable actors. That might be good; a lot of people seem to like Birdemic.
There’s a lot of bad language in here, which is what earns the red-band status. Whether the language adds to the jokes is something we’ll let you decide. (I do like the vulgar crow.) Read More »
