While there have been some notable exceptions, 2019 hasn’t exactly been a great year at the movies. If you’ve been feeling like you’ve been slowly drowning in a sea of mediocre blockbusters, take solace in the fact that you can soon burst back above the surface and gulp down a breath of fresh air in the form of a new indie called Paradise Hills, a visually stunning fairy tale which marks the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Alice Waddington.
I loved this movie when I saw it at its Sundance premiere earlier this year, and I’ve been eagerly anticipating its first trailer so you all can see the incredible style on display here for yourselves. That day has finally come, and you can check out the trailer below. Read More »

Now the two who were playfully at odds in The Fate of the Furious will be teaming up against their biggest threat yet: Idris Elba.

What are we to make of Robert Zemeckis‘ Welcome to Marwen? The film is based on a rather tragic, depressing true story, but every trailer so far has made Marwen look like a wacky, over-the-top comedy. Steve Carell plays a man who finds solace creating dolls after surviving a brutal attack. Also, the dolls come to life with creepy uncanny valley faces, and dance around. Folks, I just don’t know. Watch the latest Welcome to Marwen trailer below, and see for yourself.
