The Beach Bum trailer

Matthew McConaughey has been so adamant on proving himself a very serious actor nowadays that it’s easy to forget that he first slouched onto our screens as a smooth-talking burnout in Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused. And just when we were ready to write off McConaughey’s surfer dude typecast forever, he teams up with Harmony Korine in a chaotic movie about a drugged out surfer dude, The Beach Bum. Read More »

happy new year colin burstead

Over the past few years, Ben Wheatley has proven himself to be one of the most exciting — and efficient — British directors working today, pumping out new movies on the regular. But after the release of High Rise in 2016 and Free Fire a year later, Wheatley went quiet. That is, until an inconspicuous Instagram post revealed that Wheatley was midway through shooting a new project tentatively titled Colin You Anus.

But now, we know the actual title of Wheatley’s new film. The secret Wheatley film has been revealed to be titled Happy New Year, Colin Burstead through the BFI London Film Festival’s announcement of its competition slate. And that’s how you make noise in the crowded film festival season.

I Think We're Alone Now trailer

The long break between Game of Thrones seasons means it’s been a while since we’ve seen a great Peter Dinklage performance. His work in Avengers: Infinity War was fine, but if you want to watch the actor dig into a more complex role, make sure I Think We’re Alone Now is on your radar. It’s a new post-apocalyptic movie in which Dinklage plays the last man on Earth – but his tranquil existence is interrupted when he discovers a young woman (played by Super 8‘s Elle Fanning) in his small abandoned town.

We’ve seen a couple of teaser trailers already, but now the full trailer has arrived and you can check it out below. Read More »
