Most directors are lucky to have one smash hit in a given year. Phil Lord and Chris Miller are about to have two. Fresh off of the success of The Lego Movie, Lord and Miller are releasing 22 Jump Street, once again starring Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill as a mismatched pair of undercover cops.
21 Jump Street was one of the funniest studio comedies in recent memory, and if the new 22 Jump Street red-band trailer is anything to go by, these guys haven’t lost their touch. This time around, Schmidt and Jenko pass as college students and head down to spring break — all in the name of catching baddies, of course. Watch the trailer after the jump.

In Sex Tape, director Jake Kasdan and his Bad Teacher stars Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel offer up the comedic tale of a couple that has lost their spark. To put a little fire back into their lives, the couple makes a sex tape… which they promptly lose control of, thanks to the cloud. (Oh, that prankster, the cloud!) Is this basically a feature-length update of one joke from Trainspotting? Maybe so, but it’s also a chance for a skinny Segal and Diaz to curse and yell at one another, and pretend to have sex. Check out the Sex Tape red-band trailer below. Read More »

Arnold Schwarzenegger could use a hit right about now, not that he’s at a loss for the ability to crush things. Based on the new Sabotage red-band trailer, however, this could be that hit. The David Ayer-directed thriller looks tough and exciting, with plenty of badass moments and stone-cold violence to go around.
The plot, loosely inspired by the Agatha Christie mystery And Then There Were None, follows a team of DEA agents who start to get picked off one by one after they bust a drug cartel safe house and make off with the cash. Watch the newest promo after the jump.

The SXSW film festival has been ramping up its Midnight programming over the past few years, to the point where each new iteration of the fest sees the debut of at least one or two very worthy genre entries.
Two of the Midnight films this year are 13 Sins and Starry Eyes, and short, violent and intense trailers are available for each. (That’s an excerpt of the spectacular Starry Eyes poster above; see the full image below.) Read More »
Based on this Stage Fright red-band trailer, if you infuse the classic ’80s slasher formula with a little bit of Glee and some of the revisionist energy of Scream, you get Stage Fright. (No relation to the 1987 film of the same name.) The shocker is set in a camp for theater kids where the production of one play turns into the catalyst for a series of killings that are rooted a decade in the past.
If you’re coming to this just for the horror, the red-band trailer below suggests that there’s some gory stuff within. Which is to say: if you don’t like blood, this trailer isn’t for you. If you do want to see the red stuff, stick with this trailer until the end. Read More »
David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch) and Arnold Schwarzenegger team for Sabotage, which looks like a straight-forward, foul-mouthed, head-shootin’ B-movie. Despite the fact that he has been trying to do some acting in his various recent pictures, Schwarzenegger’s return to the screen hasn’t exactly set the box office on fire. Could this movie, which teams him with a solid supporting cast, be the one? (That cast includes Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway.)
This long red-band trailer dresses up the film’s pretty routine plot (bad-ass DEA agents get in trouble with a cartel, and the law) with a lot of cursing and violence, but thanks to Ayer’s touch it works pretty well. Check out the spot, which definitely isn’t safe for work, below. Read More »
The new film from Family Guy and Ted creator Seth MacFarlane is a western, but otherwise it looks like just what you’d expect from the guy: a violent, vulgar, kinda weird comedy about a guy who maybe isn’t cut out for the frontier. Check out the first red-band trailer for A Million Ways to Die in the West below. It is very not safe for work. Read More »

After a triumphant premiere at Cannes this spring, Blue Is the Warmest Color got some negative attention this fall when stars Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos told press that working with director Abdellatif Kechiche was a “horrible” experience and that they’d never work for him again.
The question of whether Kechiche pushed his stars too hard is still open, and based on the director’s statements may even be headed to court. But it can’t be argued that his methods, however brutal, got results. Overnight, Blue Is the Warmest Color transformed Exarchopoulos from a virtual unknown (at least in the States) into an international sensation.
And IFC Films would very much like you to remember that. The U.S. distributor for the French film has just released a red-band For Your Consideration trailer highlighting Exarchopoulos’ stunningly raw, tender performance. Check it out after the jump.
