the rental trailer

Dave Franco makes his directorial debut with The Rental, an indie horror-thriller starring Alison Brie, Dan Stevens, Sheila Vand, and Jeremy Allen White. The cast places two couples who venture to a gorgeous oceanside house for a weekend getaway only to get more than they bargained for, and then some. At this point, couples should probably stop going away for the weekend, because if there’s one thing I’ve learned from movies, it’s that such getaways never go well. Watch The Rental trailer below.

At this point, we all know what to expected from a haunted house horror movie. The poor residents of a very creepy, often old, house are being terrorized by some supernatural forces that picks them off one by one. But Natalie Erika James’ debut feature Relic, which hails from the Sundance Film Festival’s lauded Midnight section, puts a refreshing twist on the haunted house movie, setting up the Emily Mortimer-starring thriller as a family drama about the debilitating effects of dementia. And then things get sinister. Watch the Relic trailer below.

the wretched box office

IFC Films is winning at the box office. To be fair, there aren’t many other movies out there to compete with, but IFC’s indie horror flick The Wretched is cleaning up, remaining at the top of the charts for the fifth weekend in a row. This is an achievement that hasn’t happened since 2018’s Black Panther, and the fact that a small horror flick is following in the footsteps of a Marvel blockbuster is kind of a big deal.

the trip to greece review

Few could have guessed that a simple BBC travelogue series that followed two British comedians riffing and doing Michael Caine impressions would take off, but the Trip movies have been a comforting part of our pop culture landscape for the past decade. Like a warm blanket. Or a nicely grilled scallop. For 10 years, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon have been traveling across Europe, feasting on local delicacies while exchanging hilarious banter and ponderous musings about life and aging. It’s a formula that has worked for the past three movies, and which director Michael Winterbottom repeats again with a heavier dose of melancholy in The Trip to Greece.

One of the most buzzed-about genre entries at Sundance this year was Relic, writer-director Natalie Erika James‘ horror film about three generations of women dealing with something potentially supernatural. If that sounds vague, that’s intentional – this is clearly being set-up as one of those “the less you know about, the more surprised you’ll be” movies. Watch the Relic trailer below.

Movie theaters will probably be back open by September…right?

And that they also have a lot of faith in movie theaters being up and running again soon.

opening movie theaters

Lately, there’s been an aggressive push from some to reopen just about everything, including movie theaters. It’s understandable – we’re all sick of being quarantined, and cabin fever is setting in. But the coronavirus is still here, and it would be a big mistake to rush reopening movie theaters too soon. And filmmakers Spike Lee and Armando Iannucci both agree.
