7 guardians of the tomb trailer

To save you the trouble of clicking on multiple pages, we’ve compiled a whole bunch of trailers in on convenient location via a new trailer round-up. You’re welcome. Here we have Kelsey Grammer vs. spiders with 7 Guardians of the Tomb, the documentaries Genesis 2.0 and Do You Wonder Who Fired the Gun?, the World War I drama Journey’s End, and the U.K. comedy Finding Your Feet.

7 Guardians of the Tomb

What on earth is this? I don’t know, but it has my attention. 7 Guardians of the Tomb could easily be retitled Frasier vs. Spiders, as the film pits Kelsey Grammer against some terrifying killer arachnids. It looks…kind of amazing? At the start of the trailer, Grammer dramatically announces, “Your brother called from the research site in China.” Then Grammer adds, “He’s missing.” Wait, did he call to say he’s missing? I don’t know, but I do know this: spiders are creepy, even in CGI form. I also know that the font for the film’s logo heavily steals from Guardians of the Galaxy, and I have no idea why. 7 Guardians of the Tomb also stars Li Bingbing and Kellan Lutz. Look for it in theaters, VOD, and Digital HD on February 23, 2018.

When a team of scientists lose a colleague in an ancient labyrinth; the motley crew must work together to recover him while trying to make the discovery of a century. In their quest they find themselves underground, battling ancient, terrifying Chinese magic and making their way through a swarm of deadly, man-eating spiders – only to uncover the secret behind the insects’ power and intelligence.

Genesis 2.0

One time I found five bucks in the pocket of an old coat, but that’s nothing compared to finding the tusk of a mammoth (I guess). The new documentary Genesis 2.0, which recently played at Sundance, focuses on a “gold rush” in Siberia in which individuals are going out and risking life and limb to find prized mammoth tusks. Part of this is for the sake of profit – the tusks are valuable in the Chinese art market – but it’s also part of an overall plan to bring an extinct wooly mammoth back to life. Sounds wildGenesis 2.0 is still seeking distribution.

On the remote New Siberian Islands in the Arctic Ocean, hunters are searching for the tusks of extinct mammoths. There is a gold rush fever in the air. The price for white gold has never been so high. The thawing permafrost not only releases precious ivory. The tusk hunters find a surprisingly well-preserved mammoth carcass. Such finds are magnets for high-tech genetic scientists. They want to bring the extinct woolly mammoth back to life à la “Jurassic Park”. Resurrecting the mammoth is a first manifestation of the next great technological revolution. Man becomes Creator. Genesis two point zero. A Film about the secrets and mysteries hidden within nature and the fundamental difference in view of creation and the role of man in it.

Adventures in Public School

What is the deal with Judy Greer‘s agents? Why are they so bad at their job? Greer is a fantastic actress, yet she continually gets stuck in either blink-and-you’ll-miss-her roles in blockbusters like Jurassic World or Tomorrowland, or she ends up in terrible-looking indie films that vanish from memory the second they’re released. Adventures in Public School appears to fit in the latter category, with Greer playing the mother of an awkward home school kid who ventures into public school. “Quirky” stuff happens, and none of it looks promising. Adventures In Public School opens sometime this year. I’ll be skipping it.

When socially awkward, home-schooled kid Liam spots one-legged beauty Anastasia at the local school, he’s instantly hooked. Determined to find a way of getting closer to her, and fed up with his sheltered existence, Liam persuades the principle and his mom, Claire (Judy Greer), to give him a chance to try out high school life for himself.

As her beloved son navigates a new and unfamiliar world of sex, drugs and social studies, and struggles to impress a girl who doesn’t even know he exists, his mom/best friend decides it’s time to teach him the ropes of teenage rebellion.

When Liam spots one-legged beauty Anastasia during an exam at his town’s local school, he’s instantly hooked. Determined to find a way of getting closer to her, and fed up with his sheltered existence, Liam persuades the principle and his mom, Claire (Judy Greer), to give him a chance to try out high school life for himself.

Journey’s End

While World War II seems to occupy the minds of most filmmakers who make war movies, someone will occasionally remember World War I and make a movie about that as well. Enter Journey’s End, a new film from Saul Dibb. Journey’s End stars Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham, Tom Sturridge, Sam Claflin, Asa Butterfield, Toby Jones, Robert Glenister, Oliver Dimsdale, and Miles Jupp. The film is based on a British play, and focuses on a group of soldiers stuck down in a trench. It looks promising, and that cast is rather stellar. Journey’s End opens March 16th, 2018.

March, 1918. C-company arrives to take its turn in the front-line trenches in northern France led by the war-weary Captain Stanhope (Sam Claflin). A German offensive is imminent, and the officers (Paul Bettany, Stephen Graham Tom Sturridge) and their cook (Toby Jones) distract themselves in their dugout with talk of food and their past lives. Stanhope, meanwhile, soaks his fear in whisky, unable to deal with his dread of the inevitable. A young new officer, Raleigh (Asa Butterfield), has just arrived, fresh out of training and abuzz with the excitement of his first real posting – not least because he is to serve under Stanhope, his former school house monitor and the object of his sister’s affections. Each man is trapped, the days ticking by, the tension rising and the attack drawing ever closer…

Finding Your Feet

Sometimes, you just need to kick back and watch a British comedy. Thankfully, Finding Your Feet is here to help. The film stars Imelda Staunton as a woman who discovers her husband is having an affair with her best friend. Staunton travels to London to crash with her older sister (Ceila Imrie) and the two soon enter a community dance class. Finding Your Feet isn’t a movie that’s going to set the world on fire, but it is the type of movie your mother will text you about and say, “We should go see this.” Finding Your Feet opens in select theaters on March 30, 2018.

When ‘Lady’ Sandra Abbott (Academy Award nominee Imelda Staunton, Maleficent, Vera Drake) discovers that her husband of forty years (John Sessions) is having an affair with her best friend (Josie Lawrence) she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif (Celia Imrie, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Bridget Jones’ Baby). The two could not be more different — Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where gradually she starts finding her feet and romance as she meets her sister’s friends, Charlie (Timothy Spall), Jackie (Joanna Lumley) and Ted (David Hayman). This colorful, defiant and energetic group start to show Sandra that retirement is in fact only the beginning, and that divorce might just give her a whole new lease on love and life.

Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun?

The documentary Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? has won rave reviews on the festival circuit and now it’s making its way to a large audience. In 1946, director Travis Wilkerson‘s white supremacist grandfather murdered a black man, and got away with it. Wilkerson’s film examines the story of that crime and more, painting a portrait of race in the American south. Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun? opens on February 28, 2018.

Formally audacious and emotionally powerful: a meditation on conscience and responsibility, in the context of a documentary on race in the American South, as well as a highly personal exhumation of family secrets that may include a double murder. Travis Wilkerson begins with a scene from To Kill a Mockingbird, and introduces a “secular saint,” Atticus Finch, but reminds us that Harper Lee’s story was fiction, “whereas mine is true.” He continues: “In 1946, my great-grandfather murdered a black man named Bill Spann and got away with it.” His movie is a detective story with important roles played by the filmmaker’s aunt (a Southern secessionist), by a 31-year-old local activist named Rosa Parks, by the rap song “Hell You Talmbout” by Janelle Monáe, and by the still-resonant words of a Phil Ochs song that memorializes white activist William Moore.
