Netflix is quickly becoming a force in movie distribution. In recent months, they’re announced deals with Adam Sandler, Pee-Wee Herman, and distribution on films like the latest from True Detective director Cary Fukunaga, Beasts of No Nation. Their latest deal is equally impressive and probably a little bit funnier.
Ricky Gervais‘s upcoming film Special Correspondents, which stars Eric Bana, has been acquired by Netflix. They’ll release it on the streaming service next year. Read more about the Ricky Gervais Special Correspondents deal with Netflix below. Read More »
These days, it seems like every summer has a big breakout horror hit. In 2014, the smart money is on Deliver Us From Evil. The film is from producer Jerry Bruckheimer, making the first horror movie in his long career, and is directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister) with stars Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Sean Harris, and Joel McHale.
Deliver Us From Evil is based on the true stories of New York Police Officer Ralph Sarchie (Bana) who is assigned numerous supernatural cases on his regular beat. He enlists the help of a priest (Ramirez) as the details of those cases become more and more unbelievable.
The latest Deliver Us From Evil trailer is now online, showing more of the super-creepiness that awaits come July 2. Check it out below. Read More »

In the hottest, stickiest days of summer, Scott Derrickson (Sinister) will be trying his best to give you the chills. Sony’s big release this Fourth of July weekend is Derrickson’s Deliver Us From Evil, and a new international trailer has been served up to show you what it’s all about.
Inspired by a true story (because of course it is), Deliver Us From Evil centers around NYPD cop Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), who teams with an unconventional priest (Édgar Ramírez) to investigate a series of disturbing crimes. Sarchie is initially skeptical about the whole supernatural angle, but eventually comes around after he sees too many things that can’t be explained.

Scott Derrickson last brought us the film Sinister, which put Ethan Hawke into the psyche of an increasingly messed-up writer. Now here’s the Deliver Us From Evil trailer, which marks the debut of Derrickson’s new horror, and features Eric Bana and Edgar Ramírez as an unlikely cop-priest duo who deal with demonic possession.
This is a pretty unusual trailer. It begins in typical fashion with a lot of quick cuts and some ominous images tied together with dialogue voiceover. But then it settles down into basically one sequence. The trailer takes its time. We’ve seen a few other horror films do something like this (The Conjuring comes to mind) but this is still stands as an atypical trailer. And this one ends with a real Twin Peaks-worthy moment that worked for me. Read More »
Here’s the second full trailer for the true war story Lone Survivor, which is based on the book by Navy SEAL Marcus Littrell, who was part of a small group of SEALs that found itself ambushed by the Taliban in Afghanistan. Peter Berg directs stars Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster & Eric Bana. Check it out below. Read More »
Peter Berg‘s new film, Lone Survivor, is heading towards theaters with a bit more subdued promotional push than is typical for the director’s last few films. But the first trailer was compelling, as it shows men in the Navy SEAL team who targeted an al Qaeda subject in Afghanistan, and was overwhelmed by an unexpected Taliban force.
Mark Wahlberg, Taylor Kitsch, Emile Hirsch, Ben Foster, Ali Suliman, Alexander Ludwig, and Eric Bana all feature in the film, and you’ll see them in some new footage in this featurette. There’s also some explanation from Berg about the mission on which the film is based. In fact, the source for the movie is the book Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell, who was (as the title suggests) the one survivor of the operation. He speaks up here, too, hoping that this feature will get his story out to a bigger audience than ever. Read More »

Director Peter Berg‘s last movie was Universal’s gigantic Battleship. By comparison, his new movie, Lone Survivor, is really sneaking up on us. The first trailer for the film was released relatively quietly today, and it shows Mark Wahlberg in the role of a Navy SEAL on a mission to take out a Taliban figure. It’s a true story, based on the book Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10, by Marcus Luttrell. The actual tale has gone down as a dramatic moment in recent military history, and this trailer suggests that Berg is taking it very seriously.
Taylor Kitsch, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch and Eric Bana are also part of the story, but as the title suggests, things don’t go super-well for some of them. Oh, and as soon as the trailer really kicks into gear it plays out to the tune of Peter Gabriel mournfully covering David Bowie’s “Heroes.” Check out the trailer below. Read More »
