Now a new HBO Max sizzle reel teases all the same-day premieres coming throughout 2021. Read More »

What Would Sophia Loren Do Trailer

Sophia Loren, the famous Italian actress who made everyone pop their eyes out of their heads like a Tex Avery cartoon character, is the subject of the new documentary short What Would Sophia Loren Do? Sort of. This isn’t really a doc about Loren – instead, it’s about Nancy “Vincenza” Kulik, an Italian-American mother and grandmother living in Fort Lee, New Jersey who has based her philosophy of life around what Loren may or may not do in certain situations.

In fact, Warner Bros. just bumped up the Godzilla vs. Kong release date to March, two months earlier than originally planned. Read More »

This Week in Trailers

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect.

Then came Taken, the 2008 flick that inexplicably turned Neeson into an action hero. Ever since TakenNeeson has stuck with his action star status – a move that sometimes backfired, like when the bleak drama The Grey was incorrectly marketed as a movie about Neeson fist-fighting some wolves instead of the harrowing meditation on death that it actually was. Now, it looks like Neeson is ready to retire from action films Then again…he’s said that before.
