nomis trailer

It’s rare that you see a film with as stacked an ensemble as Ben Kingsley, Henry Cavill, Stanley Tucci, Alexandra Daddario, and more disappear by the wayside, but the dark crime thriller Nomis, aka Night Hunter as it’s being released domestically, could be in danger of doing just that. Kingsley stars as a vigilante who targets child predators, but ends up embroiled in a “dangerous scheme” involving the police force and a troubled man who has been “linked to years of female abductions and murders.” Watch the full international Nomis trailer below.

Would you let Jeff Goldblum give you a lobotomy? The answer is probably yes – he’s so charming! But in Rick Alverson‘s surreal new film The Mountain, Goldblum’s lobotomy practices are growing increasingly controversial. The actor plays a doctor in the 1950s, working with a young photographer (Tye Sheridan) on an asylum tour. Watch The Mountain trailer below.

the place of no words trailer

Mark Webber‘s The Place of No Words poses a large, unanswerable question: “Where do we go when we die?” The indie drama follows a three-year-old who poses such a question through a fantasy-tinged tryptic, while also dealing real-world troubles. It looks visually inventive and narratively interesting, and could definitely be a smaller film worth looking out for. Watch The Place of No Words trailer below.

When the scrappy Indonesian martial arts thriller The Raid: Redemption became an instant action classic in 2011, it seemed inevitable that a Hollywood remake would be on its way. Lo and behold, Frank Grillo soon signed on to star in The Raid remake, and director Joe Carnahan signed on three years later. But that was in 2017, and since then, we’ve heard nary a peep about The Raid remake.

But don’t worry, Carnahan is here to assure us that The Raid remake is still happening, in a new interview where he reveals the plot details of his English-language “reimagining” of Gareth Evans‘ hit film.

Getting a film made is one of the most challenging experiences anyone can go through. From writing the script, to securing the financing, to picking a crew, to casting the film, to finally shooting and editing it, filmmaking requires a huge diversity of technical and creative skills.

But in today’s media-saturated world, it’s arguably just as hard to convince people to care about your small indie film. If you have a tiny movie, how do you get it out there? What strategy do you use? What elements do you prioritize?

I had a chance to chat with writer/director Megan Griffiths about how she approached these problems for her latest film, Sadiewhich is out now on home video (Disclosure: I consider Megan a friend, plus I did some behind-the-scenes photos for Sadie.). Check out the video of our interview read a transcript of the conversation. This transcript has been edited for clarity.
