A24 Films has released the first Revenge of the Green Dragons trailer and poster for directors Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and Andrew Loo’s upcoming crime drama.  Based on a true story, the film revolves around two immigrant brothers (played by Justin Chon and Kevin Wu) who survive the poverty of 1980s New York by joining the Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons”, where they quickly rise up the ranks and draw the attention of the city cops.  Martin Scorsese—who remade Infernal Affairs with 2006’s The Departed—lends his name to the film as an executive producer, and it’s not hard to see why.  The trailer highlights a unique story with heavy stakes, told against the backdrop of the American Dream.  It looks to be an altogether promising feature, and one I’m curious to check out.

Hit the jump to check out the Revenge of the Green Dragons trailer and poster.  The film also stars Harry Shum Jr., Shuya Chang, Geoff Pierson, Billy Magnussen, and Ray LiottaRevenge of the Green Dragons will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival and will be available exclusively on DirecTV starting September 11th, followed by a theatrical release in October.

Opening this weekend is 21 and Over, a new alcohol-drenched frat house comedy that marks the directing debut of The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. In the film, three high school buddies reunite to celebrate the youngest’s 21st birthday. And then things go horribly, horribly wrong. Alcohol poisoning, angry sorority sisters with twisted hazing rituals, stampeding buffalo and pratfalls from five stories ensue.

Last week, Collider sat down with Miles Teller (Footloose) and Justin Chon (Twilight) to discuss their wild roles in the comedy. During our interview, Teller and Chon discussed getting naked on film, Chon’s deep childhood traumas, Teller urinating on his friends, how I look like a skinny Bradley Cooper and much more.  Hit the jump to watch.

Relativity Media has released a large batch of new high-resolution images from the upcoming college comedy 21 and Over.  Written and directed by The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the film stars Justin Chon (Twilight) as a Straight-A student who, on the night of his 21st birthday, has strict orders from his father to rest up for his medical school interview the next morning.  Things go awry when his best friends, played by Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose), surprise him and take him out for a night of debauchery.  Though the film wasn’t initially on my radar, after seeing Teller’s incredible performance in the Sundance hit The Spectacular Now and Astin’s charming work in Pitch Perfect, I’m hoping we’re in for a great new entry in the college comedy genre.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Sarah Wright, Jonathan Keltz, and Francois Chau21 and Over opens on March 1st.

New Trailer for 21 AND OVER Starring Miles Teller, Justin Chon, and Skylar Astin

Relativity has released a new trailer for 21 and Over, a comedy written and directed by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.  The hijinks are kicked off when Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose) surprise their button-downed friend Justin Chon (Twilight) on his 21st birthday.  Although he has an crucial medical school interview the next morning, you can imagine that the boys get into the kind of trouble that can only come from the writers who thought up The Hangover.

21 and Over has a likable young cast, a small touch that should help it land with its target audience (21 and under, natch).  I see enough potential in this and the first to believe in a funny movie with just a bit of heart (friendship is important, guys), but not so much that I’d bet on it.  Watch the trailer after the jump.  21 and Over opens on March 1, 2013.

New Images from EPIC and 21 AND OVER

epic-21-and-over-slice

New images have been released for the animated film Epic and the raunchy comedy 21 and Over.  Both films seem to loudly echo previous flicks.  Epic seems to be very much following in the footsteps of FernGully: The Last Rainforest and Avatar where an outsider learns that the forest is important to people who live in a forest.  As for 21 and Over, writer/directors Jon Lucas and Scott Moore have returned to the film that made them, The Hangover, with another story about how serious intoxication can lead to chaotic and hilarious consequences.  Judging by the trailer, I’m hoping we get another surprisingly great college comedy like Van Wilder.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Epic opens in 3D on May 24, 2013 and features the voices of Beyonce Knowles, Colin Farrell, Jason Sudekis, Josh Hutcherson, Amanda Seyfried, and Johnny Knoxville21 and Over opens March 1, 2013 and stars Miles Teller, Skyler Astin, and Justin Chon.

Earlier this week we saw the first trailer for the college comedy 21 and Over, and today we’re happy to debut two exclusive new images from the film.  Written and directed by The Hangover scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the pic stars Justin Chon (Twilight) as a Straight-A student who, on the night of his 21st birthday, has strict orders from his father to rest up for his medical school interview the next morning.  Things go awry when his best friends, played by Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose), surprise him and take him out for a night of debauchery.  These new images tease some of fallout from said debauchery, as Chon’s character finds himself in a rather precarious position.

Relativity has released the first trailer for 21 and Over, a comedy written and directed by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.  The film stars Justin Chon (Twilight) as a Straight-A student who, on the night of his 21st birthday, has strict orders from his father to rest up for his medical school interview the next morning.  Things go awry when his best friends, played by Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect) and Miles Teller (Footloose), surprise him and take him out for a night of debauchery.  Naturally, things go wrong quickly.  Essentially this looks like a college verison of The Hangover, only this time we’ll be following the increasingly outrageous events as they happen rather than simply seeing them in photo form during the credits.  There are a few laughs here and there, and I’m encouraged by Astin and Teller’s previous work so hopefully we’re in for a fun college comedy.
