Tony Jaa Hits Hard in ‘SPL 2′ Trailer

SPL 2 trailer

Tony Jaa fans will get to see their favorite elbow-thrower kick some ass in a couple scenes in Furious 7 when that film opens at the beginning of April. If his guest appearance in that movie doesn’t seem like enough, there’s something else to look forward to: the sequel to the 2005 film Saat Po Long. (Aka SPL, aka SPL: Kill Zone.) That movie is the film where Donnie Yen and Sammo Hung fight like men possessed; it’s one of the great fight films of the last decade.

SPL 2 comes a decade later, and we were fairly skeptical about it being a good idea. But with Jaa, and Wu Jing and Zhang Jin among the co-stars, there was reason to hope. Now the first SPL 2 trailer is out, and it definitely looks violent and strange. Whether it will earn its title is another thing altogether, but this first trailer is fairly promising. Read More »

‘Max’ Trailer: A Dog With the Heart of a Marine

Max trailer

Call it War DogMax is the story of a dog trained to work with military units in Afghanistan, who finds a new life with family in the States after his handler is killed in action. If you’re a dog person, this first Max trailer is probably going to be enough to have you shedding tears on your laptop keyboard, and I can just imagine the tear-jerking power of the film, even when it throws out pretty goofy lines like “we’ve got the Air Jordan of dogs.” Check out the trailer below.

Breaking Bad Pizza

Deliberately throwing stuff onto a stranger’s roof is a jerk movie pretty much any time, especially when the thrown object is something that is a pain to clean up and primed to slowly decompose. And when random people are throwing the same thing on the same roof over and over again, it gets really irritating. But some Breaking Bad fans evidently can’t stop throwing pizza onto the roof of the house used as Walter White’s home in the series, and that’s becoming a problem for the people who actually live there. Now show creator Vince Gilligan is asking fans to cut it out. Read More »

Welcome to Me trailer

Here’s the first Welcome to Me trailer, featuring Kristen Wiig as a woman suffering from Borderline Personalilty Syndrome who wins millions in the lottery. But those lottery winnings don’t make her life any easier, as she ditches her treatment and moves in to a casino. Oh, and she buys her own talk show, which she appears to host with unusually transparent personal candor. Reviews from the film’s TIFF debut last year were filled with praise for Wiig’s work, and watching this trailer it isn’t difficult to understand why.

Update: The original trailer we ran with this piece was removed at request of the distributor; now we have the official version.
