It’s rough out there at the multiplexes right now, unless all you want is to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the eighteenth time, but if you can hang tight for a few more months, some great films are just on the horizon. Like Jeremy Saulnier‘s Green Room. The thriller wowed on the festival circuit last year, and now it’s on its way to a spring release date on the U.S. Watch the first Green Room teaser trailer after the jump.

Even though we’re seeing more films from Terrence Malick (Badlands) these days, he still likes to take his sweet time with each project. We have no clue when exactly we’ll see his untitled Austin-set picture, which he shot footage for all the way back in 2011. But we Malick fans are in luck, because we’ll have something to tide us over in the meantime: Knight of Cups opens in theaters in less than two months.
After the jump, see new Knight of Cups footage and read a new synopsis.

Terrence Malick‘s films are often quite patient in their pacing. They aren’t exactly high-energy, unless you find excitement in staring off into the distance for long periods of time, caressing a lover’s hand or hair, or talking about what it all means to be alive. Malick’s movies are invigorating in their own way, as tone poems. However, his latest film, Knight of Cups, looks quite enthralling, in a more conventional sense.
Watch the Knight of Cups trailer after the jump.

Jeremy Saulnier‘s Green Room is the cinematic equivalent of getting your face bashed in. In a good way, of course. This take-no-prisoners thriller has been making the festival rounds throughout 2015, sucker-punching unsuspecting audiences from Cannes to Toronto. It’s a mad and brilliant movie… and it’s already been picked up by A24, who have officially given this gruesome instant-gem a release date.
For details on the Green Room release date, hit the jump!

Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.
The movie is perched near the top of my “most anticipated films of 2015” list, and there’s some good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that Green Room has been picked up for distribution in the US by the terrific A24, which also boasts films such as The Witch (see that ominous trailer here), The End of the Tour, Ex Machina, and Slow West. The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.

For the first time since 2001, we have a new Peter Bogdanovich film arriving this year. She’s Funny That Way (formerly titled Squirrels to the Nuts, a reference to Ernst Lubitsch’s Cluny Brown) stars Owen Wilson as Arnold, a theater director who gets involved with an escort and aspiring actress (Imogen Poots) whose therapist (Jennifer Aniston) is dating his playwright (Will Forte) — who, in turn, begins to fall for the escort.
Meanwhile, Arnold tries to duck the wrath of his wife (Kathryn Hahn), who’s also his star, along with her ex (Rhys Ifans). Lucy Punch is somehow involved as well. It’s a lot to keep track of, so see if you can keep up with the She’s Funny That Way trailer after the jump. Read More »
When Cameron Crowe and J.J. Abrams team up for a TV show, it’s pretty obvious lots of people are going to be interested. Not just in watching it though, but taking part in it too. Well, Crowe and Abrams are both executive producing a new Showtime pilot called Roadies and the first two actors have just come on board: Luke Wilson and Imogen Poots. Read more about the Roadies casting below. Read More »
Jeremy Saulnier is putting together the follow-up to his excellent thriller Blue Ruin, and he’s got a cast that makes the film an instant lock to see. Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat and Imogen Poots all star in Green Room, which Saulnier wrote and will direct. But it’s the most recent addition that will probably get your attention. Patrick Stewart has joined the cast to play the leader of a bunch of “white power skinheads.” Read More »

André Benjamin, aka André 3000 of Outkast, does a solid job of playing Jimi Hendrix in the movie Jimi: All Is By My Side. The film isn’t your typical biopic, as it veers away from providing a top to bottom account of the guitarist’s life. Instead, it focuses on the year of Hendix’s life in which he went from being an unknown supporting player to a guy on the brink of stardom.
During that year, he meets Linda Keith (Imogen Poots), who dates Keith Richards and consequently has the connections to get Jimi’s career started. The film wanders through this strange, intense year in the man’s life with an odd rhythm that gives it a unique feel. Some of that is captured in the new Jimi: All Is By My Side trailer, which you can see below. Read More »

In May, James McAvoy will show off his superheroic side as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past. But first, he’s gonna let out his inner villain in an Irvine Welsh adaptation.
The latest Filth red-band trailer has hit, and it shows McAvoy at his most unlikable. He plays Bruce Robertson, a sleazy, corrupt, drug-addicted cop who’ll stop at nothing to get what he wants. But the biggest obstacle standing in his way may be his own faltering grip on reality.
Jon S. Baird directed, and Imogen Poots, Eddie Marsan, Jamie Bell, and Jim Broadbent also star. Watch the video after the jump. Read More »
