Dark, the eerie, stylish time-travel mystery show from Germany, just got the go-ahead for season 2 on Netflix. The series was marketed as a kind of German Stranger Things, and while it certainly shares some connections with that other Netflix hit, Dark is a bit more cerebral and a lot less nostalgic. Overall, it’s a creep-tastic show and if you haven’t checked it out yet, you should stream it on Netflix ASAP. Here’s what we know about Dark season 2.

Kids on bikes. A small town with a dark secret. An underbelly of supernatural forces threatening the town at large. A government building conducting experiments that will lead to further problems. No, it’s not Stranger Things, it’s Netflix’s first German-language original series Dark.

If you’re tired of prestige-pic-season leftovers and Monster Trucks isn’t exactly your jam, perhaps Sleepless will be just the jolt you’re looking for. A remake of the buzzy 2011 French thriller Sleepless Night, it’s essentially Jamie Foxx‘s Taken, with a bit of The Departed mixed in. Michelle Monaghan is also there to glower at Jamie Foxx and David Harbour gets the chance to demonstrate that he can say “Nevada” correctly. Watch the Sleepless red-band trailer below. Read More »

The Sleepless Night remake just got a jolt of much-needed energy. Open Road has just picked up the action-thriller and attached Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan to star. Baran bo Odar will direct from a script by Andrea Berloff.
The original French film by Frédéric Jardin was a big hit with critics, if not the box office. To give you general sense of the tone, it’s been described as “a sort of Die Hard (in a nightclub) crossed with Taken.” More on the Sleepless Night remake after the jump. Read More »

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. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we go on a quest to get some love from a woman of the night, go on the hunt for some gorillas, revisit our teenage years, look back at concentration camps with footage from the front line, and have an adventure overseas with some dudes who possess computer skills.

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. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: I celebrate all levels of trailers and hopefully this column will satisfactorily give you a baseline of what beta wave I’m operating on, because what better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? Some of the best authors will tell you that writing a short story is a lot harder than writing a long one, that you have to weigh every sentence. What better medium to see how this theory plays itself out beyond that than with movie trailers?
