Searching trailer

A father scrambles to find his missing teenaged daughter, wracking his brain to think of anything that could give him a clue to her whereabouts. With no other options, he begins to comb through her digital life and discovers that he didn’t know his daughter nearly as well as he thought.

This is Searching, an upcoming thriller starring John Cho that unfolds entirely across computer screens. It’s an innovative and twisty mystery, and it’s one of the best films of this year so far. Take a look at the new Searching trailer and poster below.

Searching trailer

Circle August 3, 2018 on your calendars, add an event in your phone, do whatever you need to do to remember that date, because that’s when one of the year’s best movies arrives in theaters. Searching stars John Cho (Star Trek, Columbus) as a father whose teenaged daughter goes missing, and as his quest to find her intensifies, he realizes he may not have known her as well as he initially thought. I’ve seen the movie twice already and can say without reservation that this is one of the best movies of 2018.

Search review

When 16-year-old high school student Margot Kim (Michelle La) goes missing, her father (John Cho) mounts a desperate attempt to find her in Searching, a fast-paced, nail-biting mystery that plays out entirely on computer screens. While the 2015 horror movie Unfriended unfolded on one screen, Search expands the gimmick to multiple computers and cell phones, creating an immersive experience that’s instantly engaging. This stylistic choice is executed to absolute perfection by first-time filmmaker Aneesh Chaganty, who uses it to draw a clever juxtaposition of our online lives and our daily reality while telling a dynamic story that grabs you from the first minute and doesn’t let go until its frantic conclusion. This movie rules. Read More »

Literally, Right Before Adam trailer

Justin Long and Cobie Smulders both have a likability that works well in romantic comedies. They can be naturally charismatic in movies, and that kind of charm can work wonders for a romantic comedy. Long and Smulders – which sounds like an insurance company – starring in a romantic comedy sounds appealing and we’ll soon see them in Literally, Right Before Adam, which might not qualify as a traditional rom-com. There’s comedy, yes, but the romance may be dead since it’s about Long’s character being invited to his ex-girlfriend’s (Smulders) wedding.

Below, watch the Literally Right Before Adam trailer.

gemini trailer

Combine the talents of rising indie star Lola Kirke, talented genre actress Zoe Kravitz, and the endlessly watchable John Cho, and you’ve already got a great set-up for a movie. Place them in a dark Los Angeles-set neo-noir, and well, you have one of the most intriguing indie films of the year.

The trailer for New York filmmaker Aaron Katz’s Gemini paints a dark and surreal picture of a Hollywood starlet (Kravitz) and her dangerously co-dependent relationship with her dedicated assistant (Kirke). But this is more than just a narcissistic tale of female friendship, as something more malicious lurks under the surface.

Columbus trailer

John Cho has long deserved a romantic leading man role after paying his dues for years in the broad comedy of Harold and Kumar and as second fiddle in action franchises like Star Trek. He even gave an underrated performance in Selfie, a surprisingly charming TV show with a terrible title. But now it seems like he’s finally been given the spotlight he deserves in the Sundance darling, Columbus.

And you can see him get that spotlight in the trailer for Columbus, which stars Cho as the son of an ailing professor and Haley Lu Richardson as the young drifting architecture enthusiast with whom he strikes up a friendship.

Columbus review

Early in Columbus, Casey (Haley Lu Richardson) defends her decision to use less spice in a dish. She was going for subtlety, she explains, all the better to let the true flavors of the ingredients shine through and leave a lingering aftertaste. That, essentially, is the mission statement for the entire movie. It might not be to everyone’s tastes — it’s too delicate and slow and, yes, subtle for that. But those who stick with it will find a drama worth savoring, with echoes of OncePaterson, and the Before trilogy and fine performances from Richardson and John ChoRead More »
