Sleeping with Other People

"This guy is taking up emotional real estate that could be occupied by a real option." IFC has debuted their own red band trailer for Leslye Headland's Sleeping with Other People, an indie comedy starring Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie as platonic friends struggling with their problem of sleeping with too many other people. This new trailer is quite similar to the international trailer we featured a few days ago, which was very raunchy and didn't hold back on the sex, similar to this one. Obviously the sex is a key part of the story, but it's not the only way to sell this. That said, I'm still intrigued to see this I just don't need to see any more trailers or footage or anything else. Anyway, give this a look if you're still not convinced. Have fun! ›››

Quay Brothers in 35mm Teaser Trailer

Get ready for a master class in stop-motion animation taught by Christopher Nolan. After announcing that Nolan's new short documentary about American animators the Quay Brothers would be premiering in New York City this August, Zeitgeist Films has followed up with a 11-city tour.

Along with the news that it might be coming your way sooner than you thought (though everything will be available on Blu-ray this fall), the first teaser trailer has debuted and it's a quick introduction to the Quay Brothers and their animation. This looks like it may be worth your time and money to see in cinemas. ›››

FirstShowing.net - Tue, 08/11/2015 - 14:12
Straight Outta Compton

"You are now about to witness the strength of street knowledge." I just saw this film last night, and it's dope. No really, it's exceptional. Our friends at Fandango have debuted a new set of artistic posters designed by illustrators from Southern California made to promote F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton, the story of N.W.A and the rise of many of the talented musicians from that era. The posters feature unique styles that highlight the five main talents - Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Dj Yella and MC Ren. Watching these five on screen is enrapturing because they're played with such bravado by an incredible young cast - O'Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Neil Brown Jr. and Aldis Hodge. I dig these posters - see below. ›››

Watch: Second Trailer for Jon Chu's 'Jem and the Holograms' Movie

FirstShowing.net - Tue, 08/11/2015 - 13:39
Jem and the Holograms Trailer

"Who is Jem?!" Universal has unveiled a second official trailer for Jon M. Chu's Jem and the Holograms movie, based on the campy 80's animated TV show. The first trailer debuted a few months back and this latest one follows up with more flashy, totally outrageous Jem action. They're amazing rock star musicians by night! This trailer also introduces the very creepy, very stupid robot thing that seems to track them all the time. We get it, Hollywood, you have no idea how technology works, but nice try. Aubrey Peeples plays Jerrica, along with Stefanie Scott, Aurora Perrineau & Hayley Kiyoko as her rockin' sisters. Enjoy. ›››

First Two Revealed on New Poster for Tarantino's 'The Hateful Eight'

FirstShowing.net - Mon, 08/10/2015 - 13:13
The Hateful Eight

Meet John Ruth and Daisy Domergue. Over at Entertainment Weekly, they're revealed the first character poster for Tarantino's upcoming western The Hateful Eight. The poster features Kurt Russell as John "The Hangman" Ruth and Jennifer Jason Leigh as Daisy Domergue. There's also six more marks to denote the remaining six members of "The Hateful Eight", so I imagine we'll be seeing a set of posters like this for all of the characters - likely connected with the trailer debut. I much prefer the other teaser poster designed and debuted at Comic-Con, that one is hard to top, and this one doesn't even come close. But I'm still crazy excited for this movie, especially after seeing some footage at Comic-Con. It's going to be amazing. ›››

FirstShowing.net - Mon, 08/10/2015 - 12:54
Louder Than Bombs

"I wanted to know…" The first powerful teaser trailer for Joachim Trier's new film Louder Than Bombs has debuted online, and it's a must see. Trier is the Danish filmmaker behind Reprise and Oslo, August 31st, and this new drama just premiered at Cannes and will likely hit a few other festivals coming up. Louder Than Bombs is mostly in English and stars Jesse Eisenberg, Amy Ryan, Gabriel Byrne, David Strathairn, Isabelle Huppert and Devin Druid. The story concerns two brothers, played by Eisenberg and Druid, and their feelings and memories of their mother, a famed war photographed who was killed in a horrific car accident that is teased at the end of this. I'm looking forward to seeing the film, something very mesmerizing about this teaser. I'm not the biggest Joachim Trier fan but I'm curious about this. Take a look. ›››

Watch: Roger Moore is Back as Bond in a Fan-Made 'Spectre' Trailer

Roger Moore Spectre Trailer

What if… We can dream, and thanks to computers, we can make those dreams real. Sort of. I was tipped off yesterday on a video going around YouTube that remixes and edits the latest Spectre trailer so that James Bond is played by Roger Moore, not Daniel Craig. It's not as bad as you think, and it actually uses some very creative editing to pull off the feeling that this could actually be real. As a huge Bond fan myself, I was skeptical about this and whether it would be jittery or smooth, and it actually works well together. The shots he found of Moore fit rather perfectly. Makes me more excited for Spectre. "Q - have I ever let you down?" ›››

 The Force Awakens

"There has been an awakening… have you felt it?" We're getting closer and closer. As of today, there's officially 130 days left until J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: The Force Awakens is out playing in theaters worldwide. The countdown is on! Tickets will be on sale in the next few months. This new TV spot features a few seconds of new footage, but not too much more. We've already seen behind-the-scenes footage and two teasers so far for the Force Awakens, so more is expected to be revealed soon (especially as Disney gets closer to their D23 convention). Daisy Ridley as Ren is featured prominently in this, along with a new shot of Supreme Leader Snoke's courtyard and some of the teaser shots. Only a few more months to go! Enjoy. ›››

Watch: Full US Trailer for Gabriele Muccino's 'Fathers & Daughters'

FirstShowing.net - Fri, 08/07/2015 - 18:54
Fathers & Daughters

"We'll be fine." "Pinky swear?" To follow-up the Japanese trailer we featured yesterday, Voltage Pictures has debuted the official US trailer for Gabriele Muccino's Fathers and Daughters, the drama starring Russell Crowe and Amanda Seyfried. The film takes place across two different storylines, one set in the 1980s with Crowe raising his daughter, the other set at current day with his daughter now grown up struggling to connect with her boyfriend, played by Aaron Paul. This is a slightly different version of the trailer from the other day, with many of the same moments, and a few more scenes and alternate music. I still prefer Crowe's storyline with the younger daughter more than the other one with Seyfried. Take a look. ›››

Review: Joel Edgerton's 'The Gift' is a Serious and Surprising Success

FirstShowing.net - Fri, 08/07/2015 - 17:00
Joel Edgerton's The Gift Review

There's a very frank, spoiler-filled discussion I'd like to have with Joel Edgerton about The Gift. His directorial debut, for which he also wrote the script, is intense, and loaded with surprises and ambiguity. More serious drama than suspenseful thriller, the film serves as a cautionary tale about… well, that's just one of those many surprises Edgerton has in store for his audience. Dripping with darkness, The Gift only delves into horror on foreboding tone alone, and the choices made by its characters are very real with real consequences. Edgerton's screenplays have always analyzed human choices we make and the results of our actions, and, with The Gift, he offers a daring, satisfying depiction of one's past coming back to haunt them. ›››

FirstShowing.net - Fri, 08/07/2015 - 13:29
 Portraits Along the Road

Kicking off later this month is a retrospective screening series of a filmmaker that more people should know about. His name is Wim Wenders, one of the major figures in New German Cinema, who has been making films for over 40 years. His most recent work includes the drama Every Thing Will Be Fine (which I saw in Berlin), his photographer documentary The Salt of the Earth (which I adore), and the dancer documentary Pina, which was filmed in 3D. The retrospective spans his entire career and will include screenings in 15 cities showing restored 4K or 2K versions of his early work, including Paris, Texas, Tokyo-Ga, American Friend, Wings of Desire and of course The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick. Catch a short trailer below. ›››

"Shine light where there is darkness." Another filmmaker we've posted many shorts from previously on this site has made the leap into feature filmmaking, and is set to direct his first movie called Origin Unknown. ScreenDaily made the announcement this week, reporting that work is already underway on producers Parkgate Entertainment and IAM Entertainment’s "UK sci-fi thriller" being directed by Hasraf 'HaZ' Dulull. HaZ is the name behind the shorts Sync, Project Kronos and I.R.I.S., and he's also worked as a VFX supervisor on a number of other projects.

Watch: New Extended TV Spot for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Movie

Steve Jobs Extended TV Spot

"What you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you! You're a father…" Universal has debuted an extended 60-second TV spot for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the late technology innovator Steve Jobs. We've already seen two trailers for this already, but this new TV spot throws in some extra footage, including that line quoted at the start about how he's supposed to be a father (maybe they're focusing on that part of the story in the marketing more?). The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Katherine Waterston, Jeff Daniels, and Michael Stuhlbarg. This looks outstanding. ›››

'Fathers & Daughters' Trailer with Russell Crowe & Amanda Seyfried

FirstShowing.net - Thu, 08/06/2015 - 18:46
Fathers & Daughters

"I was so afraid of you leaving me!" The first Japanese trailer (in English) for Gabriele Muccino's Fathers & Daughters has arrived. The film stars Russell Crowe as the father, with Amanda Seyfried as his daughter (all grown up). The cast includes Aaron Paul, Diane Kruger, Jane Fonda, Octavia Spencer and many others. The story spans two settings across 30 years - the first in the 1980s when Crowe struggles to try and raise his young daughter as a single father; and also the modern day where that same daughter, now all grown up, struggles to connect with others just as well. It seems to be a very bold, emotional look at the long-term effects of tragedy. This got my attention, though I already like Crowe's side of the story more. ›››

New Line Cinema Rebooting 'A Nightmare on Elm Street' Series Again

A Nightmare on Elm Street

One, two, another reboot coming for you. Three, four, the more franchise movies the better. Five, six, you get the point. Over at the Tracking Board, they're reporting that New Line Cinema is ready to try again with A Nightmare on Elm Street. Just a few years ago we followed very closely the most recent remake that came out in 2010, directed by Samuel Bayer starring Jackie Earle Haley as the new Freddy. And, once again, since that remake didn't end up doing so well they're simply going back to the drawing board and restarting because of course it's a successful name-brand horror franchise so they can restart and it still has a fanbase. ›››

Second Trailer for Baumbach's 'Mistress America' with Greta Gerwig

FirstShowing.net - Thu, 08/06/2015 - 15:00
Mistress America Trailer

"Being around Brooke made you want to find life, not hide from it." Fox Searchlight has just debuted the second trailer for Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, starring Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke as two unlikely friends in New York City. Kirke plays the younger one, a college freshmen at Columbia, who follows around her older soon-to-be stepsister Brooke, played by Gerwig. It's a look at this generation and how they're not so bad, even though everything seems so bad about them. Trust me, it's not as bad as it seems. Oh no, this sounds bad… Anyway, it's a bit different than Frances Ha and nothing like While We're Young, but it does have the same unique spunk that can be found in all of Baumbach's films. Don't forget to laugh. ›››

By the Sea Trailer

"Do you wanna hurt me? Hurt me!" Universal has debuted the first official trailer + a poster for Angelina Jolie Pitt's By the Sea, a period romance starring Brad Pitt and of course, Angelina Jolie Pitt herself as well. The cast includes Mélanie Laurent, Melvil Poupaud, Niels Arestrup and Sarah Naudi. It was filmed around Malta, an archipelago in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. Truthfully, this really just seems like Pitt and Pitt – or rather Angelina and Brad – having "fun" doing a movie together where they can dress up and explore all these crazy emotions in a romantic story set in a beautiful location in the past. I'm definitely intrigued, this trailer is a very alluring tease. Take a look below. ›››

Watch: Vin Diesel as Kaulder in New 'The Last Witch Hunter' Trailer

The Last Witch Hunter

"Do you know what it's like to live forever?" Lionsgate has debuted the full-length trailer for The Last Witch Hunter, a CGI-filled horror fantasy action mash-up starring Vin Diesel as the immortal "last witch hunter" Kaulder. We featured the first teaser trailer for this a few months ago, now we can follow up with the full trailer and poster. Aside from Diesel, the cast includes Rose Leslie, Elijah Wood, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Rena Owen, Julie Engelbrecht and Michael Caine. I hate to say it, but this just looks way too cheesy and overly-FX-driven to be taken seriously. "I need you to take me to the dream world. It's the only way…" There are all kinds of crazy things in this, flaming swords and flaming trees. I don't even know. ›››
