The Stranger trailer

In the series finale of Game of Thrones, Tyrion Lannister makes a grand speech about how there’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story. I hope Maika Monroe‘s character in the new Quibi movie The Stranger saw that speech and took it to heart, because she’s going to need one hell of a story of her own if she wants to stay alive. She plays a ride share driver who picks up a deranged sociopath (played by Dane DeHaan), and he threatens to kill her unless she tells him “a really good story.” Check out the newest trailer below.

the stranger teaser

It’s still up in the air whether Quibi will be a force to be reckoned with in the streaming wars, or just another curious experiment, but the mobile video platform certainly has a talent for releasing star-studded trailers. The latest trailer stars Dane DeHaan and Maika Monroe in a thriller series that follows the rideshare from hell. The Stranger follows Monroe’s rideshare driver as she picks up DeHaan’s titular stranger, who claims to have just committed a murder and threatens to do the same to her unless she tells him “a great story.” Watch The Stranger teaser below.

Villains trailer

A young couple (It‘s Bill Skarsgärd and It Follows‘ Maika Monroe) robs a gas station and scores enough cash to start a new life in Florida, but wouldn’t you know it: their getaway car runs out of gas. When they break into a fancy house looking for another vehicle to take them the rest of the way, they end up stumbling on much more than they bargained for in the new thriller Villains.

Check out the latest trailer below, and read some excerpts from our review of the film from this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival.

villains review

Dan Berk and Robert Olsen’s Villains isn’t their first genre rodeo, and it shows. Their feature debut Body ignited their affair with home invasion horror, Stake Land II sucked some serious sequel blood, and their script for Don’t Kill It burst with howlin’ mad body-possession beats. So what makes Villains their most gratifyingly unstable and deliciously dark midnighter yet? Simplicity in casting: Bill Skarsgård and Maika Monroe. Maybe that’s my specific answer, but I’d watch these two imitate Bunny and Clive (bargain bin versions) until the proverbial cows come home.

Granted, there’s far more to the morally blurry Villains worth pondering than two charismatic and devious burgeoning criminals, but try not falling head-over-heels with Berk and Olsen’s daydreaming amateur fugitives. Read More »

greta trailer

Acts of good Samaritanism usually result in tears, hugs, and maybe a viral video. But in Chloë Grace Moretz‘s she’s rewarded with sinister friend played by the elegant Isabelle Huppert who slowly becomes a sinister stalker. In the Greta trailer, Oscar-winning director Neil Jordan directs a psychological thriller about a toxic friendship that dissolves into a life-threatening relationship.

tau trailer

Netflix has become a new hub for sci-fi thrillers, and it looks like its latest film is one to watch out for. Tau is a brutal, horror-tinged thriller starring Gary Oldman as an AI house that terrorizes its inhabitants in a horrifying game of cat and mouse. And while the Oscar winner doesn’t appear on screen himself, his voice is chilling enough.

Hot Summer Nights trailer

Timmy C is back, baby. After a stellar 2017 with a memorable appearance in Lady Bird and his breakout star-making role in Call Me By Your Name, Oscar-nominee Timothee Chalamet is about to hit the big screen once again.

Check out the stylish new trailer below. Read More »

batgirl actress

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

bokeh trailer

Bokeh is built around a captivating, albeit familiar, concept: what if you woke up one day and you were seemingly the last person on the planet? And what if you were on vacation at the time of this dramatic event, leaving you alone (perhaps forever) in a place that is wholly unfamiliar to you? It’s not clear where the film goes beyond that, but the trailer is certainly intriguing enough to make you wonder.

Independence Day Resurgence Review

When Independence Day hit theaters in 1996, it brought the spectacle of global destruction, exciting action, some decent laughs, and an ensemble of memorable characters with nary a huge movie star in sight. Twenty years later, Independence Day: Resurgence attempts to deliver all that again. But despite a plot point out of left field that shifts the sequel away from a simple retread of the original and toward an absolute bonkers, universe-expanding set-up for a sequel, this follow-up falls flat and lacks any of the heart, charm, efficiency and exhilaration that makes the first one entertaining to this day.
