HONEYMOON Trailer Turns Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway’s Post-Wedding Getaway into a Nightmare

Have you seen Rose Leslie in Game of Thrones?  Have you seen Harry Treadaway in Penny Dreadful?  Then you’ve got an idea of what to expect from Leigh Janiak’s first feature film, Honeymoon.  Sure, there’s some eerie imagery, but what makes Honeymoon a standout is Janiak’s deft approach to unraveling this mystery paired with Leslie and Treadaway’s impassioned performances.

If that’s not enough to sell you on seeing Honeymoon when it hits theaters on September 12th, the film’s brand new trailer should get the job done.  Again, it’s not about freaking you out with jump scares or grotesque visuals, but rather about building an unnerving tone, letting you get to know the characters and then having you watch as their loving relationship completely unravels.  Hit the jump to check out the Honeymoon trailer for yourself.

Today’s TIFF announcement marked the arrival of a new film from director Susanne Bier (Love Is All You Need), the thriller A Second Chance.  And now a trailer has hit online.  This movie looks really good at first glance, very tense and dour (and a little bit like a twist on some of the themes of Gone Baby Gone).

The film was written by frequent Bier collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen and stars Jamie Lannister himself,  Nikolaj Coster-WaldauUlrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen also appear.  Hit the jump to check out the A Second Chance trailer along with a few debut images.

SPACE STATION 76 Trailer Shows Patrick Wilson, Matt Bomber and Liv Tyler Living in Deep Space 70s-Style

space-station-76-trailer-slice

We’ve got an abundance of films set in a futuristic version of space, but what if space travel and deep space living more closely resembled the 70s instead?  That’s exactly what Jack Plotnick’s feature directorial debut is all about.  Rather than run with a single primary narrative, Space Station 76 puts the focus on a number of main characters going about their daily lives on a refueling station called the Omega 76.

There’s the bitter captain, Glenn (Patrick Wilson), his new assistant captain, Jessica (Liv Tyler), the space station mechanic, Ted (Matt Bomer), and his wife Misty (Marisa Coughlan) who struts around without a care in the world, often neglecting her own daughter.  You can catch them all in action in the very first Space Station 76 trailer after the jump.

New HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS Trailer Shifts Simon Pegg From Comedy to Drama

by     Posted 3 hours ago

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-trailer

A new Hector and the Search for Happiness trailer has gone online.  Based on the book of the same name by François Lelord, the film stars Simon Pegg as the titular Hector, an eccentric psychiatrist who’s going nowhere and whose patients aren’t getting any happier.  One day, he musters up the courage to set out on a quest to find out if happiness really exists.  I had actually never seen any of this film’s trailers before today, so I went and revisited the first and second trailers as well.  And I think I prefer this brand new one the most.  It sells the character’s need to go on this journey a bit more.  Or maybe I’m just getting old and schmaltzy.  The comedic elements of the first two trailers are still present, but now I get the restlessness of the character’s life.

Hit the jump to check out the new Hector and the Search for Happiness trailer.  The film opens in the U.K. on August 15th and in the U.S. on September 19th.  Rosamund Pike, Christopher Plummer, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgard, and Jean Reno also star.

PREDESTINATION Trailer Chooses an Engaging Science Fiction Scenario

by     Posted 4 hours ago

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Predestination, the time travel project that reteams Ethan Hawke with his Daybreakers directors The Spierig Brothers.  The last update we got was that Hawke had finished the film about a year ago, then nothing.  Then today we suddenly get a trailer for the film based on the 1959 Robert Heinlein short story “All You Zombies.”

And that trailer looks pretty cool.  It definitely seems like it mixes elements of Minority Report with elements of Looper, though the dating of its source material should clear up any claims of aping the latter.  Sarah Snook looks like she’s being put to unique use as well, with a remarkable transformation at the trailer’s halfway point.  My only real concern here is that they’re showing too much.  Sony will be distributing the film in the U.S. but a release date hasn’t been announced at the moment.  Hit the jump for the Predestination trailer.

First NIGHTCRAWLERS Trailer Features Jake Gyllenhaal in Desperate Need of Some Food and Work

by     Posted Yesterday

nightcrawlers-trailer-jake-gyllenhaal

Remember when Jake Gyllenhaal got scary skinny?  Now you can get a sense of why he did it because the very first viral video for Dan Gilroy’s feature directorial debut, Nightcrawlers, is out and Gyllenhaal’s gaunt appearance in the piece does make his character’s desperation to land a job even more heart wrenching and quite unnerving, too.  Gyllenhaal leads the film as an ambitious guy trying to land a good job, but it’s not really working out for him so instead, he winds up getting into the business of “nightcrawling,” the practice of using video cameras and police scanners to cover crimes and then sell the footage to local news stations.

The video is less than a minute long, but it sure does make an impression.  For those who’ve been on the job-hunt before, it’s easy to connect to Gyllenhaal’s passion and his very well rehearsed pitch, making the dark turn towards the end of the piece especially disconcerting.  Nightcrawlers is due in theaters on October 17th and also stars Bill Paxton, Rene Russo and Riz Ahmed.  Hit the jump to check out the Nightcrawlers trailer for yourself.

Watch THE IMITATION GAME Trailer Starring Benedict Cumberbatch; Drama Will Open the 58th London Film Festival

The Weinstein Company has released the first The Imitation Game trailer.  The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality made him a target of persecution.  Judging by this trailer, I’m sure there will be superficial Sherlock comparisons since Turing is brilliant but off-putting to those around him, but I think this looks like a solid World War II drama with some good performances.

Hit the jump to check out The Imitation Game trailer.  The film opens November 21st, and also stars Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Charles Dance, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Allen Leech, and Matthew Beard.  Additionally, The Imitation Game will open the 58th BFI London Film Festival on October 8th. [Update: We've added the U.K. trailer after the jump.]

First ART AND CRAFT Trailer and Poster: Documentary Follows Benevolent Art Forger Mark Landis

Oscilloscope has released the first Art and Craft trailer and poster.  The documentary centers on prolific and talented art forger Mark Landis.  Landis successfully mimicked everyone from Picasso to Walt Disney to convince a number of museums that he offered authentic work.  The catch: Landis wasn’t in it for the money.  He posed as a philanthropic donor, a grieving executor of a family member’s will, and a Jesuit priest to donate hundreds of works over several decades.  The documentary explores Landis’ motives as his foil, registrar Matthew Leininger, fights to expose the forgeries.

Directed by Sam Cullman and Jennifer Grausman and co-directed by Mark BeckerArt and Craft opens in New York September 19 before expanding to other cities.  Watch the Art and Craft trailer after the break.

THE ONE I LOVE Trailer Avoids Spoiling the Unconventional Comedy Starring Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass

RADiUS-TWC has released the first The One I Love trailer for director Charlie McDowell’s offbeat debut.  The film stars Elisabeth Moss and Mark Duplass as a couple on the brink of separation who escape to a vacation house for a weekend getaway.  Soon after arriving, however, they encounter an unexpected discovery that forces them to examine themselves, their relationship, and their future.  This is one of the films I was disappointed to miss at the Sundance Film Festival, as I heard only great things from those that caught it.  Moreover, I was told it’s best to go in without knowing the “twist” to the premise that occurs earlier in the film.  Thankfully, this trailer teases the intriguing story without giving anything away.  I’m definitely looking forward to catching this one next month.

Hit the jump to watch the The One I Love trailer.  The film also stars Ted Danson and will be released on VOD on August 1st and in select theaters on August 22nd.

ANNABELLE Teaser Trailer Hints at a Potentially Terrifying Film

by     Posted 5 days ago

annabelle-teaser-trailer

Last week we got the news that Annabelle, the spinoff of The Conjuring, was indeed the “Untitled New Line Horror Film” that had previously been scheduled for later this year.  Today, in what seems like a remarkably quick turnaround, we have a two minute teaser trailer for the movie.  If you’re even remotely a fan of The Conjuring this is something you’ll want to check out (though it should be noted that Annabelle is not the official sequel The Conjuring 2, which is set for release October 23rd, 2015).

Annabelle was directed by John R. Leonetti (who served as a DP on The Conjuring and should be able to recreate that film’s style) and written by Gary Dauberman (the upcoming Crawlspace).  James Wan is producing alongside Peter Safran.  The film stars the somewhat ironically named Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders), Ward Horton, and Alfre Woodard. New Line and Warner Bros. will release the film on October 3rd, 2014.  Hit the jump for the Annabelle teaser trailer.

First OUIJA Trailer, Poster and Images: When Board Games Kill

by     Posted 6 days ago

ouija-poster

The idea of a horror movie inspired by a Ouija Board never really sounded like a great idea, but now the very first Ouija trailer is here and sadly, it confirms it.  The film marks Stiles White’s feature directorial debut and involves a group of friends using a Ouija Board to contact Debbie (Shelley Henning), another friend who just passed.  Turns out, Debbie’s death was no accident.  She started messing with a Ouija Board she found and the thing killed her.

We get horror movies about folks contacting spirits all the time, but what could have (and should have) made Ouija a standout is using the familiar board game in a nostalgic manner, just like Phil Lord and Christopher Miller did with The Lego Movie.  Just having your leads sit at a table in a dark house with the board won’t do that, especially when they’re also being drowned in genre clichés as well.  Ouija is due in theaters on October 24th and stars Olivia Cooke, Daren Kagasoff, Douglas Smith, Bianca Santos and Ana Coto.  Hit the jump to catch the new trailer, poster and images.

LAGGIES Trailer: Keira Knightley Runs from Adulthood with Chloe Grace Moretz in Tow

A24 Films has released the first Laggies trailer for director Lynn Shelton’s (Your Sister’s Sister) coming-of-age comedy.  The film stars Keira Knightley as Megan, a 28-year-old woman who, being unable to cope with the pressures of adulthood when her longtime boyfriend proposes, runs off and befriends a 16-year-old named Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz).  I caught the film at Sundance and despite charming performances from Knightley and Sam Rockwell as Annika’s father, unfortunately the pic is pretty forgettable.  Though the film begins strong, it becomes quite frustrating as Megan’s actions grow more implausible and irresponsible.  This trailer does a fine job of conveying the tone and direction of the pic, so you should be able to gauge your interest accordingly.

BIG HERO 6 International Trailer: Hiro Hamada Meets Baymax

by     Posted 6 days ago

big-hero-6-international-trailer

Disney has released a Big Hero 6 international trailer.  Although the trailer is entirely in Japanese, after that domestic trailer dropped yesterday and absolutely melted my heart, I’m down to watch Hiro (voice by Ryan Potter) and Baymax (Scott Adsit) do just about anything, even if I can’t understand what they’re saying.

This one still has the footage of Hiro trying to train Baymax and help him suit up, but it’s got a far more somber tone to it.  Rather than open up with vibrant colors and an amusing scene like watching Baymax plug up a few holes with tape, this international version gets a funeral and rather blue and grey imagery to go with it.  However, as soon as Baymax pops up – or rather, blows up – the piece lightens significant and also gives us a look at how and why Hiro and Baymax came together in the first place.  Hit the jump to check out the Big Hero 6 international trailer.  The film opens in 3D on November 7th, and also features the voices of Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., and Alan Tudyk.

PUMP Trailer and Poster Aim to Break Our Oil Addiction

Our dependence on oil is obviously a politically touchy subject (personally I like keeping the planet as clean as possible and my wallet full without depending on a non-renewable resource) but, as fans of both cinema and Tesla Motors’ Elon Musk, we have decided to share both the Pump trailer and poster with you.  The documentary on alternative fuel and vehicles comes from directors Joshua Tickell and Rebecca Harrell Tickell, who previously helmed the Sundance award-winning film Fuel.

The film stars Musk along with John Hofmeister (Founder and CEO at Citizens for Affordable Energy) and Luiz Inácio da Silva (Brazil’s president from 2003-2011). Hit the jump for the Pump trailer and poster.
