The 21 Jump Street reboot surprised many with the chemistry between Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, and the comic energy of everyone around them. So there’s a sequel, 22 Jump Street, with the major cast back in their roles, and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller back in the driver’s seat(s). The setting is moved from high school to college, so there are plenty of college movie cliches to lampoon, and a new drug plot to follow up. And one character has had gender reassignment surgery, though that may be more of an incidental thing than a big plot point.

Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the comedy Bad Words, about a guy (played by Bateman) who hijacks a national spelling bee. How does that happen, exactly? The red-band trailer below will show you a bit, just as it’ll let you know how the supporting cast such as Rohan Chand (Homeland), Kathryn Hahn (We’re the Millers), Ben Falcone (Bridesmaids), Philip Baker Hall (Argo), and Allison Janney (The Help) factor in.
The language in this one really isn’t for work; this teaser makes the Bad Grandpa red-band stuff sound positively tame.

Jude Law is a pretty, pretty man, and (like many actors) he’s enjoyed a long, healthy career in part by capitalizing on this fact. But in Dom Hemingway, he’s nothing like the handsome, elegant presence we’ve come to expect. Instead, he looks bleary and bloated and altogether slimy, and his performance looks all the more entertaining for it.
Directed by Richard Shepard, the British crime dramedy stars Law as a loud, lewd safecracker just coming off of a twelve-year stint in prison. He reunites with his BFF (Richard E. Grant) to try to get his life back on track, which means trying to collect what he’s owed from his boss (Demián Bichir) and mending his relationship with his daughter (Emilia Clarke). Check out the newest red-band trailer after the jump.

Charlie Countryman, starring Shia LaBeouf, has been somewhat divisive since it debuted at Sundance. Adherents (including our own Germain Lussier, quoted in the new trailer) like the film for its audacious, raw visuals and LaBeouf’s all-in performance, while detractors say that the debut from commercials director Fredrik Bond is more music video than anything else.
LaBeouf plays a guy who falls, hard, for a young woman (Evan Rachel Wood) while he’s touring around Europe. But there’s a problem. Her ex, played by Mads Mikkelsen, is possessive and very violent. Would you want to square off against a pissed-off Mads? Thought not.
Get a taste of the film for yourself in the new red-band trailer, which is more true to the film than some other looks we’ve had at it in the past. Like Shia’s other video clip to hit the web this morning, this one is not at all safe for work. Read More »
Takeshi Kitano follows his 2011 film Outrage with a sequel Yakuza film, Beyond Outrage (originally called Outrage Beyond), and a new red-band trailer for the US release has come online.
This is red-band because Takeshi’s films tend toward extreme bursts of violence perpetrated by stoic men, with Takeshi himself typically the most prone to the worst action. In this case there’s a lot of gunplay, and a drill, and a pretty mean use of an automatic baseball pitching machine. The story concerns multiple crime families who are set against one another, with Takeshi as an instigator (or pawn?) in the middle. Seems a bit like Dashiell Hammett’s Red Harvest, with yakuza.

The Jackass segments featuring Johnny Knoxville made up to look like a much older man were always fun, but can that concept work during the course of an entire film? We’ll find out in a few days when Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa opens in theaters.
In the meantime you can get another look at the film via this red-band trailer, which is very definitely not safe for work thanks to the presence of, among other things, a very stretchy prosthetic penis. If that seems tame, there’s also very underage drinking, some awkward strip club action, and serious car-on-penguin violence. Read More »

James Franco got pretty weird in Spring Breakers earlier this year, but Alien is a big old teddy bear compared to the unhinged meth kingpin he plays in Homefront. He’s so scary, in fact, that Jason Statham may be the only man who can take him down.
The Gary Fleder-directed, Sylvester Stallone-scripted thriller follows a former DEA agent who retires to a quiet rural community to start a new life with his daughter. But the peace is soon disturbed when he discovers the town’s secret, and the town discovers one of his. A new red-band trailer has hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

Is there a better time than Halloween season to unveil a trailer for a horror film? The studios apparently don’t think so, as we’ve seen several hit this week alone. Devil’s Due released its first promo yesterday, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones revealed a spot earlier today, and now comes Here Comes the Devil to try and make its own creepy mark.
Directed by Adrián García Bogliano, the thriller follows two kids (Michele Garcia and Alan Martinez) who go missing during a family trip to the caves of Tijuana. Though they eventually find their way back to their parents (Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro), it quickly becomes clear that something terrible has happened to them. Hit the jump to watch the NSFW red-band trailer.
