by     Posted 12 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 13 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 23 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 35 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 62 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.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is one of our most-anticipated films of the summer.  The follow-up takes place five years after the first installment as Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Toothless are exploring new territories while the rest of their friends are enjoying dragon races.  During one of Hiccup and Toothless’ journeys, they discover a secret ice cave, hundreds of new wild dragons, and the mysterious Dragon Rider.  In this teaser for tomorrow’s trailer, they meet up with a new rider (voiced by Cate Blanchett) and a new dragon who has an ability we haven’t seen before.  It’s another look at a world that’s going to be much bigger than the first, and I’m excited to see more when the new trailer drops tomorrow.

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.

The Doctor Who 50th anniversary special The Day of the Doctor was simulcast in over 200 countries today, creating a nice opportunity to air teasers for other fine British productions.  Naturally, there was a 10-second promo for the Doctor Who Christmas special which promised “Silence Will Fall” and a visit to the planet Trenzalore.  There were also slightly longer 30-second promos for Sherlock season 3 and Orphan Black season 2. Given where the previous season left off, the Sherlock clip opens on a tombstone that reads “Sherlock Holmes” before reassuring fans with the hashtag #sherlocklives.  The Orphan Black clip reveals the April 19, 2014 premiere date, then retreats as a distraught Tatiana Maslany stalks toward the camera.

Sherlock returns to PBS January 19.  Peter Capaldi will be fully revealed as the new Doctor on December 25.  Watch the teasers after the jump.
