3D trailers are great if you’re watching them in a 3D movie theater with your 3D glasses on, but so-called 3D trailers on the Internet usually aren’t anything special. Since the effects don’t work on our computers, most “3D trailers” just turn out to be 2D trailers with action-packed scenes that we can sorta-kinda picture looking exciting in 3D.
But leave it to Robert Rodriguez‘s gleefully over-the-top Machete Kills to go over-the-top with its 3D Internet trailer. No, not even the world’s toughest ex-Federale can make your laptop suddenly support 3D technology. But he can offer a video with explosions so big, they can’t be contained by your average video player. See what we mean after the jump.

At this point you probably know what the Robert Rodriguez film Machete Kills is all about, so a new red-band trailer is just a mid-week distraction. But if you’re looking for the sort of distraction that involves wild violence, exploitative action, and a knife fight with Mel Gibson, this is going to be perfect.
This sequel to Machete is a cavalcade of stars, or at least of personality. Danny Trejo returns as ex-Federale Machete, and Gibson is a bad-guy arms dealer, Charlie Sheen (aka Carlos Estevez) is the President of the United States, and Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofía Vergara, Lady Gaga, and Cuba Gooding Jr. all show up. That’s not even the whole of the cast.
Machete Kills opens in October, but it premieres this Thursday as the opening night selection of Fantastic Fest. We’ll have a report after that premiere. Read More »

This weekend marks the release of You’re Next, which made its festival debut in 2011 and has had horror fans waiting for two years. But there’s also new materials for a delayed festival horror fave that has been waiting even longer for release.
All the Boys Love Mandy Lane was the feature debut of Jonathan Levine, who has gone on to make The Wackness, 50/50, and Warm Bodies. The film debuted at TIFF in 2006, where the Midnight Madness crowd ate it up. (I was there; it was a fun show.) Amber Heard takes an early starring role as a girl who is the center of attention in her high school, and who finds herself at a secluded weekend party where attendees are being violently dispatched.
Years of difficulty with distributors has kept the film off screens in the US even as it has been released in other countries. The film finally hits VOD on September 6, with a limited theatrical release planned for October 11th. There’s a new official US trailer to promote that release, which you can see below. Read More »

The marketing team at Apple would have you believe that there’s an app for everything, but when you’re a killer agent, sometimes you need your tools to be a little more hands-on. Count on Robert Rodriguez to fix that problem by hiding a blade inside the device.
That’s just one of the many ridiculous sights on display in Machete Kills, which once again stars Danny Trejo as ex-Federale Machete. When a billionaire arms dealer (Mel Gibson) plans to ignite a war by launching a missile into space, the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen, billed as “Carlos Estevez”) calls upon Machete to stop him. Watch the new full-length trailer after the jump. Read More »

Over the past several years, we’ve watched as director Jonathan Levine has climbed up the Hollywood ranks. His ’90s indie drama The Wackness received lots of praise, as did his cancer comedy 50/50, and he even managed to find new life in the paranormal romance subgenre this year with Warm Bodies.
However, we in the States have so far been denied the pleasure of seeing where it all began. Levine’s directorial debut All the Boys Love Mandy Lane garnered enough positive buzz on the festival circuit in 2006 that Dimension Films scooped up the distribution rights, but the company never actually got around to releasing the film. And so it is that, seven years later, RADiUS-TWC has only just scheduled a U.S. premiere date for the movie.

During the summer movies tend towards sun, superheroes and sequels. There are romantic comedies with huge stars, and animated 3D films generating lines that run around the block. That doesn’t leave a lot of room for the little guy. But maybe something else can sneak in. Paranoia, directed by Robert Luketic, is an espionage thriller that doesn’t boast any big special effects, just an impressive cast with an intriguing plot.
Liam Hemsworth stars as a man hired by one tycoon (Gary Oldman) to spy on his competitor, played by Harrison Ford. Amber Heard, Josh Holloway, and Richard Dreyfuss are caught up in the scheme, too. The film opens August 16. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »
