spider in the web trailer

Spider in the Web, a film that has nothing to do with The Girl in the Spider’s Web or Spider-Man, stars Ben Kingsley as an aging Mossad agent suspected of fabricating intelligence. A younger operative is sent to shadow him – and that’s when things get slippery. Spider in the Web looks to be drawing on John Le Carré-style spy thrillers, without the benefit of adapting Le Carré’s actual work. Watch the Spider in the Web trailer below.

night hunter trailer

Night Hunter was stuck between a rock and a hard place: go with a tantalizing, vague title like Nomis that would probably get mispronounced to hell, or adopt a generic, hyper-masculine title like Night Hunter. The David Raymond film obviously went with the latter.

The thing about a title like Night Hunter is that it’s both too specific and too vague — sure, it’s about a person who hunts at night, but what does that mean? In this case, the hunter in the title refers to a serial killer who at the beginning of the film is arrested — but that doesn’t stop him from taking more lives with every passing second, despite the efforts of Henry Cavill, Alexandria Daddario, and Ben Kingsley. Watch the Night Hunter trailer below.

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.

operation finale trailer

A tense, and final, Operation Finale trailer presents the true story of the Mossad’s hunt for, and capture of, Nazi officer Adolf Eichmann. Oscar Isaac and Ben Kingsley star, and based on this trailer, both of them are acting their heads off, to the point that it might end up giving you anxiety. Watch the Operation Finale trailer below.

Operation Finale trailer

In Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Best Picture winner Schindler’s ListBen Kingsley played a Jewish administrator who aided in the effort to save lives during the Holocaust. In a new movie called Operation Finale, Kingsley steps to the other side and plays a Nazi official responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people.

MGM has released the first Operation Finale trailer, which stars Oscar Isaac as a Mossad agent who’s tracking Kingsley’s character in an attempt to bring him to justice. Check it out below. Read More »

Security Trailer

Antonio Banderas seems to have followed guys like Steven Seagal and Bruce Willis into the kind of direct-to-video movies that even cinephiles used to pick up from a Blockbuster Video shelf and wonder, “what the heck is this?” It’s hard to blame him – the guy’s gotta work, and if this is the only way he can do that, there are some larger issues at play here – but I’m still a little crestfallen to see him in something like Security, a new action thriller that looks like a cross between Die Hard and Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

the wackness sequel

If somebody reading this has a few extra million bucks to spare, they should consider giving Jonathan Levine a call. The director behind 50/50The Night Before, and Snatched wants to revisit the struggling characters from his excellent coming-of-age film, The Wackness. Almost a decade after the movie went overlooked in theaters, Levine wants to explore New York City again with Luke Shapiro (Josh Peck) and Dr. Squires (Ben Kingsley).

Below, Levin discusses The Wackness sequel he wants to make.

collide trailer

If you feel like you’ve been seeing trailers for Collide since 2015, you’d be right. Director Eran Creevy‘s crime thriller was a victim of Relativity Media’s bankruptcy and while Open Road Films scooped up the rights, the film has bounced around the release schedule like a ping pong ball in a car accident. After a series of delays (the most recent of which came this month), the film has seemingly settled on release date next month, which means that this new trailer is probably the last one we’ll see.

Collide trailer

In Collide, Casey (Nicholas Hoult) must revisit his dark past to save the one he loves. That set up is very familiar, but Eran Creevy is a director capable of transcending tropes. Creevy’s sophomore effort as a filmmaker, Welcome to the Punch, is a story of hero and foe uniting, a potentially trite set up that makes for a refreshingly streamlined film with a reliance on practical action. His follow-up, Collide, which he co-wrote with F. Scott Frazier (xXx: The Return of Xander Cage), looks like another lean action-thriller from the director.

Below, watch the Collide trailer.
