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 fall in love while our life spins out of control, get wrapped up in some dirty dealings, work through some things from our past, get convicted by a jury of our peers via the boob tube, and our work-life gets a little more intense.

One thing worse than being buried alive has to be being buried alive with plenty of time underground to think about the situation. The claustrophobic dread of knowing there’s no escape, coupled with a realization of impending doom is bad enough. Those feelings excruciatingly stretched over what feels like eternity, are pretty much the scariest thing imaginable. Which is exactly what director William Dickerson wants us to feel with the trailer for his feature debut, Detour.
While driving home from a meeting, a man named Jackson is swallowed into the Earth by a massive mudslide. Trapped in his car with no way out, he begins to fight for his life. Neil Hopkins (Lost, Skyline) plays Jackson and Brea Grant (Heroes, Friday Night Lights) plays his wife. Check out the trailer for the film, which hits limited theaters and iTunes March 29, below.

Indie filmmaker Sean Hackett is making his directorial debut with a film called Homecoming, and we’ve got the first trailer for the picture. Homecoming focuses on Estelle, a young Army medic on leave in her home town. It doesn’t look like the sort of modern ‘soldier at home’ story we’re used to seeing. Instead, this appears to be a film that takes a much more realistic approach to the time a soldier spends at home, and the issues that go along with that return. It’s something I expect a good number of people will be able to relate to, so check out the trailer below. Read More »

To be honest, I suspect most of you who follow Dexter but don’t subscribe to Showtime have already downloaded an illegal copy of Sunday night’s Season 6 premiere. But on the off chance you haven’t gotten around to that just yet — or that you’re one of those rare law-abiding types — the network is providing you with an opportunity to watch it legally and for free, in hopes that you’ll consider shelling out the extra $12 or so a month to just subscribe to the channel already.
After the jump, watch the full-length episode via YouTube. A message at the start of the show states that “the following program has been edited from its original form” (read: slightly less blood and blurred-out boobies), but unless you’re a real completist about premium cable-approved nudity, I’m thinking the video below is good enough. Watch it after the jump.
