Batkid Begins will restore your faith in humanity. We live in a cynical world; hate and conflict are things we all deal with every day. But in the documentary Batkid Begins, you get to see how pop culture can not only bring out the best in people, it can unite us in ways that are absolutely remarkable.
You probably remember back in 2013, a young boy diagnosed with leukemia was chosen by the San Francisco Make-A-Wish foundation to get his wish. The boy, Miles Scott, wanted to be Batman. Granting that wish would be no easy task. As news of his wish got out, the event snowballed into something bigger than anyone imagined. From his family to the planning to the worldwide reaction, you see all facets of this incredible event in Batkid Begins.
Directed by Dana Nachman, Batkid Begins will be released by New Line Cinema on June 26. (Julia Roberts is also producing a narrative version of the story.) Check out the first Batkid Begins trailer below. Read More »

When the upfront presentation for the new TV shows coming to Fox this fall was unveiled, there was no new trailer for the horror comedy Scream Queens from Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy. Instead, a teaser trailer with actual footage from the show arrived on its own, which means Fox really wants this one to stand out and hopes it’ll be something special. Unfortunately, the full trailer for the series has arrived, and this looks like it’s going to be murder, and not in the way you want from a horror comedy. Watch the full Scream Queens trailer after the jump. Read More »
Tobey Maguire plays chess champion Bobby Fischer in the film Pawn Sacrifice, directed by The Last Samurai helmer Ed Zwick. The first real trailer for the film should arrive shortly, given that we’ve got a poster, but for now we’ll have to stick with this debut one-sheet. Fortunately it’s a great image, with Maguire front and center, looking intense and somewhat unhealthy. See the image below. Read More »
As good as Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is, it’s hard to put that quality into words. I tried with my Sundance review and I tried again when the first trailer for the film was released. Still, the wonderful mix of humor, sadness, melancholy and cool is something you simply just have to see to understand.
Thanfully, a new Me and Earl and the Dying Girl trailer does a better job of conveying the unique tone of the film than the first trailer, which was already pretty good. The film opens on a limited basis June 12; check out the trailer below along with a few new clips from the Sundance Award-winner. Read More »
In the horror comedy Cooties, Elijah Wood and Rainn Wilson play teachers at a school where the kids become infected with cooties… well, they’re infected with a food-borne virus that has devastating effects on anyone who hasn’t gone through puberty. Mayhem naturally ensues. Imagine some cross between the Community paintball episode and Village of the Damned, and you might be on the right track. Check out the energetic Cooties trailer below.
