JUDGE DREDD SUPERFIEND Teaser Trailer Warns “Death is Coming” in New Miniseries

by     Posted 8 days ago

judge-dredd-superfiend-teaser-trailer

A few weeks ago we told you that producer Adi Shankar was working on a miniseries to continue the story of Dredd that he started in the amazing 2012 film starring Karl Urban. Yesterday came the surprising news that this series wouldn’t be live action like Shankar’s other offshoots The Punisher: Dirty Laundry and Venom: Truth in Journalism, but an animated miniseries called Judge Dredd Superfiend.

And it actually looks really good.  It’s definitely broader in a visual sense than the 2012 film (though that film was so satirical in tone that this aesthetic embellishment seems organic).  It contains elements of the Dark Judges story arc and was written and directed by The Junquera Brothers.  Look for the full trailer on October 23rd and you don’t even have long to wait for the miniseries itself, which debuts next week on October 27th.  Hit the jump for the Judge Dredd Superfiend teaser trailer.

New Teaser for THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Introduces the Title Character

by     Posted 19 days ago

I remember being a little underwhelmed by The Woman in Black when I first saw it in 2012.  It was a well made movie, but fell firmly into the category of “not my thing” despite the fact that I’m a huge horror nut.  Most fans disagreed with me though and the movie made an impressive sum of money on a relatively small budget.  If you saw the ending of that film, it will come as no surprise that Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t return in the sequel (or does he) but it looks like the atmosphere – a unanimous high point – from the original has arrived intact.

The new clip is much better than the first teaser we saw a few months back.  It’s still brief, but it actually has some incident in it.  Hit the jump to check out the new teaser for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death.  Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine star in the film directed by Tom Harper.  It opens in theaters on January 20th, 2015.

The Flash premiered tonight on the CW and, if your interest as readers is any indication, it went over rather well.  It also doesn’t hurt that our own Dave Trumbore was incredibly pleased by the quality of tonight’s episode in his recap.  After the show aired we got a glimpse of a minute-long teaser trailer that gives us a look at the upcoming episodes of the season and features footage of Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold (a nice followup to the initial images we just shared).  I’ve gotta say, this new teaser is light years better than the initial trailer for the show we got over a month ago.  Not sure if it’s my thing but it’s much more cinematic.

The show also stars Grant GustinDanielle PanabakerCarlos ValdesJesse L. MartinCandice PattonTom CavanaghRick Cosnett, and John Wesley Shipp with Robbie AmellWentworth Miller, and Clancy Brown slated as guest stars.  The Flash airs on the CW on Tuesdays at 8/7c.

We still don’t have an official debut date nor any concrete plot details, but Penny Dreadful will return to Showtime in 2015 and now it’s got a very brief teaser to prove it.  There’s no footage just yet.  All it is is a little voiceover from Eva Green and, I believe, Danny Sapani, warning that the past “never leaves us” and “it is who we are.”

Season 1 veterans Josh HartnettTimothy DaltonReeve CarneyRory KinnearBillie PiperHarry Treadaway, Helen McCrory and Simon Russell Beale will also return and they’ll be joined by newcomers Patti LuPone, Douglas HodgeSarah Green and Jonny Beauchamp.  Hit the jump to check out that Penny Dreadful season 2 teaser.

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR Trailer and Poster; J.C. Chandor’s Film Starring Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac Opens Dec 31 in NY and L.A.

J.C. Chandor is definitely on the rise, with a surprising amount of people favoring his dark horse Robert Redford film All Is Lost over Alfonso Cuaron‘s Gravity juggernaut in last year’s “solo and in peril” sweepstakes.  And A Most Violent Year definitely looks like it could be the film that really solidifies his place on the map.  The film is set in New York in 1981 and revolves around “an American immigrant (Oscar Isaac) and his wife (Jessica Chastain) trying to expand their business as violence and corruption threaten to destroy all they have built.”

A24 has just released a trailer for the film that’s incredibly intense and foreboding and surprisingly successful in making you feel like you know these characters already.  Oscar Isaac is such a chameleon, I had to look twice to make sure this was in fact the same Isacc from Inside Llewyn Davis. And of course Jessica Chastain has never delivered a bad performance.  The trailer doesn’t even really show Albert Brooks, but after Drive I’m hoping he plays a similarly menacing figure.  Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster for A Most Violent Year.  The film opens in NY and LA on December 31st.

New AMERICAN HORROR STORY: FREAK SHOW Teasers; Is That Twisty the Clown Killer?

by     Posted 54 days ago

Have a fear of clowns?  Based on these new promos for American Horror Story: Freak Show, you’ll probably develop one as soon as the show returns.  The fourth season will take place in Jupiter, Florida in 1952, right when Elsa Mars (Jessica Lange) moves her freak show into the neighborhood.  The gang includes Kathy Bates’ bearded lady, Michael Chiklis’ strongman and Sarah Paulson’s conjoined twins, just to name a few.

We’ve also got John Carroll Lynch on board as the Freak Show villain, Twisty the clown killer.  Minus that shadow in the recently released character poster, we haven’t seen much of Twisty yet, but it looks as though one of the characters featured in this new set of American Horror Story: Freak Show teasers could be him.  Hit the jump to see for yourself.

NYMPHOMANIAC: DIRECTOR’S CUT Teaser Breaks the NSFW Barrier

by     Posted 55 days ago

nymphomaniac-director's-cut-teaser

Lars von Trier’s sexual epic Nymphomaniac was split into two parts upon its initial release (as Nymphomaniac: Volume I and Nymphomaniac: Volume II), it was also edited for content.  Though Von Trier gave his consent for that edit, he still held onto his plans to make a director’s cut of the film entitled Nymphomaniac: Director’s Cut.  And it looks like he’s prepping that cut for release, if this teaser is any indication.  Also, I need to tell you right now hat this teaser is NSFW.  You may think you know NSFW by now, but you don’t.  This kind of breaks both the NSFW barrier and my own brain when it comes to the amount of sexual content that can be crammed into 20 seconds.

Hit the jump to watch the teaser and click here to read Matt’s review of Volume I and here for his review of Volume II.  The film stars Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Uma Thurman, Christian Slater, Stacy Martin, Mia Goth, and Jean-Marc Barr.  There is no domestic release date for Nymphomaniac: Director’s Cut, but we’ll let you know when one pops up.  Again, please heed the NSFW warning.

HBO Releases New Teasers for THE NEWSROOM, THE COMEBACK, and BOARDWALK EMPIRE

by     Posted 65 days ago

the-newsroom-final-season-teaser

Last night, HBO ran the series finale for True Blood (read Allison’s recap here), but also released teasers for three shows that will be premiering this fall.  On September 7th, Boardwalk Empire will begin its fifth and final season, and as this latest teaser reminds us, “No One Goes Quietly”.  Then in November, HBO will premiere the final season of Aaron Sorkin‘s The Newsroom, and I can’t decide if it’s narcissistic or clever that they’re using script pages to tease the show’s conclusion.  And while it may be “good-bye” to Boardwalk Empire and The Newsroom, it’s “Welcome back” to The Comeback, which will also premiere in November.

Check out The Newsroom final season teaser after the jump along with the teasers for Boardwalk Empire and The Comeback.

Guillermo del Toro and THE WALKING DEAD’s Norman Reedus Involved in New SILENT HILL Game

by     Posted 77 days ago

silent-hill-guillermo-del-toro

Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) will be involved, in some capacity, in the new Silent Hill game.  I know that’s vague in regard to their roles on the project, but that’s all that has been announced thus far.  From the below video we can assume that Reedus will voice a character in the game (as well as give license to his visage), but I’m foggier on Del Toro’s involvement since his title card just has his name.  Did he write it?  Is he a producer of some kind?  No idea.  Also from the title cards, we can make an educated guess that the name of the game is Silent Hills. Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima is working on it as well.

That’s about all of the info we have, and most of it has been gleamed from a Silent Hills teaser video that sprung from what had been advertised as a demo for another game.  Since the announcement was made in an interactive manner, the following video contains some commentary from the woman playing it.  You may want to lower the volume on the speakers.  Hit the jump for the Silent Hills teaser.

ANNABELLE Teaser Trailer Hints at a Potentially Terrifying Film

by     Posted 104 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.

Marvel has released two brief teasers featuring Guardians of the Galaxy‘s animated characters, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and now they have teasers for the other three members of the crew.  This time, they’re focusing on the live-action characters: Chris Pratt as the roguish Peter Quill (aka “Star-Lord”), the assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and the rampaging Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista).  I assume these are the end of the character teasers, but it would be nice to see ones for Nebula (Karen Gillan) and The Collector (Benicio Del Toro) since they also made appearances in first trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the teasers.  The film also stars Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, and Peter SerafinowiczGuardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.
