First Girl I Loved trailer

Most people got to known Brianna Hildebrand for the very first time through her scene-stealing performance as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool. But if you were at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, you might have seen her a bit earlier. Hildebrand hit the festival with First Girl I Loved, a tender coming-of-age drama directed by Kerem Sanga (The Young Kieslowski). Hildebrand and Dylan Gelula (best known as Xan on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) play two high school classmates who fall in love, but find their relationship threatened by forces internal and external.

While I did catch the film at Sundance, I didn’t have the opportunity to review this one myself, unfortunately. But pretty soon you’ll be able to judge it for yourself as it’s coming to theaters this fall. Check out the First Girl I Loved trailer below.

Planetarium trailer

Natalie Portman has had a busy 2016, starring in Jane Got a Gun and Knight of Cups, as well as her own directorial debut A Tale of Love and Darkness. And she’s still not done. Next month she has two films debuting at both Venice and Toronto. One is Jackie, the First Lady biopic from Pablo Larraín. The other is Planetarium, an intriguing drama directed by Rebecca Zlotowski (Grand Central).

The latter stars Portman and Lily-Rose Depp (Yoga Hosers) as two American sisters with an unusual gift. The ladies make their way through 1930s Paris and catch the attention of a filmmaker (Emmanuel Salinger) mounting an ambitious new movie. Watch the Planetarium trailer below.  Read More »

Blair Witch sequel

Audiences lucky enough to get into a sneak preview screening of the horror flick The Woods at Comic-Con were treated to one of the coolest surprises that cinema has seen in a while. The horror film directed by Adam Wingard was revealed to actually be a sequel to The Blair Witch Project simply called Blair Witch. In the spirit of the original film, it’s apparently one of the scarier horror releases in recent memory.

Now a new Blair Witch trailer has arrived to show you the terror in store when the movie hits theaters next month, and it looks even more suspenseful and terrifying than the original movie from 1999. With the way this secret was kept from audiences, I really hope it delivers the scares along with the surprise that this movie even exists. Read More »

Genndy Tartakovsky Superman short concept art

It seems like there’s no shortage of stories about abandoned superhero movies, but this one’s a little different in that it’s an animated short rather than a live-action feature. Back around 2013, Genndy Tartakovsky was planning an animated Superman short. His plans were scrapped, but not before back artist Scott Willis had put together a couple of gorgeous concept art pieces. Check out Willis’ work on the Genndy Taratakovsky Superman short below.  Read More »

manchester by the sea trailer

When Manchester by the Sea premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it was met with near universal acclaim from all who saw it. Many attendees declared it an early frontrunner for the best film of 2016. It started the 2017 Oscar conversation before the 2016 awards could even occur. The film was quickly purchased by Amazon Studios and Roadside Attractions. Director Kenneth Lonergan, whose Margaret famously endured all kinds of hell on its way to release, was now responsible for a movie that looked like it could play far beyond an audience of faithful cineastes and critics.

The first Manchester by the Sea trailer has arrived and it’s full of drama and bittersweet laughs and glimpses at complex performances from the likes of Casey Affleck and Michelle Williams. Oh, and there are Massachusetts accents. Oh boy, are there Massachusetts accents.
