Official US Trailer for Jeunet's 'The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet'

3 hours 48 min ago
The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

"They think I'm an adult." The Weinstein Company has put out a last minute new US trailer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet's The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet. You've probably heard of this one before, because it opened in Europe two years ago, in 2013, and has been delayed by The Weinstein Company for release until now. They're quietly dumping the new Jeunet film in select theaters this weekend. We've posted at least one trailer for this a few years ago, but another brand new trailer has just debuted for this week's opening. Kyle Catlett (who went on to star in Poltergeist after making this) plays T.S. Spivet in this quirky adventure about a ten-year-old cartographer who travels solo across the country. I might still check it out sometime. ›››

Watch: Trailer for Rick Alverson's Kooky New Film 'Entertainment'

7 hours 42 min ago
Entertainment Trailer

"That's what it's all about folks - having fun." A few years back filmmaker Rick Alverson broke out with a controversial comedy called The Comedy, which premiered at Sundance to both rave reviews and constant walk outs. Alverson is back again this year with a new film, Entertainment, starring Gregg Turkington as The Comedian, a performer "caught in a struggle between being the center of attention and the object of alienation". The cast includes Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz. This is a very funky film that seems like something more from the mind of Quentin Dupieux, with lonely, dusty California landscapes and kooky characters aplenty. This is not for everyone, but might tickle your fancy. ›››

6 Years Trailer

"I don't want you to have regrets, we make decisions they affect the rest of our lives." The Orchard has premiered the official trailer for Hannah Fidell's 6 Years, a relationship drama looking at the first six years in the romantic life of a young woman. Taissa Farmiga, younger sister of actress Vera Farmiga, stars as Mel Clark. She is in a relationship with Dan Mercer, played by Ben Rosenfield. The cast includes Joshua Leonard and Lindsay Burdge from Hannah Fidell's previous film, A Teacher. This looks quite good, I must say, it's a nicely cut trailer with an energy to it that pulls you in, makes you feel like you're a part of it. ›››

8 hours 56 min ago
Battling Boy

One of the best animated short films of last year was Patrick Osborne's Feast (it also won the Oscar), which played in front of Disney's Big Hero 6. A charming story about a dog's place in a family, the filmmaker got his foot-in-the-door to Hollywood with his work on that short and now has his first big gig. Variety confirms the Tracking Board news that Patrick Osborne is attached to direct an adaptation of Paul Pope's graphic novel Battling Boy. We've actually been covering this one for years and years, reporting news on various rewrites and screenwriter updates as the film has been in development for about 7 years already. Read on. ›››

Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Another New 'Black Mass' Trailer

9 hours 54 min ago
Black Mass

"Jimmy's business is Jimmy's business…" Warner Bros has debuted one more official theatrical trailer for Scott Cooper's Black Mass drama, starring Johnny Depp as the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger. We've seen plenty of trailers for this already, so we all should know what to expect at this point, but they keep revealing more and more. This time there's a focus on Depp as Bulger, and lots of the action around his character, and he looks so damn good. And crazy. The big cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, Dakota Johnson, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon and Adam Scott. I actually really dig the pacing and the intensity of this trailer, thanks to the song "Till It's Gone" by Yelawolf. Enjoy! ›››

Must Watch: First Trailer for Cary Fukunaga's 'Beasts of No Nation'

12 hours 33 min ago
Beasts of No Nation

"Agu, go on! Agu!" Netflix has debuted the first teaser trailer for Cary Fukunaga's Beasts of No Nation, the latest feature from a talented filmmaker. When civil war tears his family apart, a young West African boy is forced to join a unit of mercenary fighters and transform into a child soldier. The film stars Abraham Attah as Agu, the boy, along with Idris Elba as Commandant in a powerful role. The film looks brutal, and tough, but still beautiful like all of the films Fukunaga has made so far. I'm very intrigued to see how this plays out. If the film is as good as it looks, then Netflix is going to ruffle some feathers when they release it. ›››

First Teaser Trailer for Lenny Abrahamson's 'Room' with Brie Larson

12 hours 57 min ago
Room Teaser Trailer

"You're gonna love it…" From the filmmaker who gave us Frank comes a new film titled Room, starring Brie Larson as "Ma", exploring the boundless love between mother and child. A24 has unveiled a teaser before the film's premiere at TIFF in just a few months, and this will definitely throw you for a loop. The cast includes Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen and William H. Macy. As usual, Brie Larson looks to be at the top of her game with a riveting performance, though there seems to be so much going on in this that we don't know about yet. Is this a horror-thriller, or just a thriller, maybe it's merely a drama? Very interesting. ›››

More sequels! Always more sequels. With the latest Mission: Impossible movie about to hit theaters, Tom Cruise is out doing the press rounds and was in New York City this week talking with everyone. During the premiering, MTV News caught up with him and got a very brief tease about a possible Edge of Tomorrow sequel. Everyone has been catching up to that one and realizing how damn good it is, and now they want a sequel, so he says "I pitched it to [Rogue Nation director Christopher] McQuarrie and [Edge of Tomorrow director] Doug [Liman]. We were there one night and I was like, I’ve got an idea for it…" That's all that was revealed, but on "The Daily Show" Cruise confirmed some bigger news regarding more Mission: Impossible. ›››

Robert Eggers / Nosferatu

Another day, another remake. This time they're digging deep and remaking a horror classic from the early years of cinema. Deadline reports that Jeff Robinov's Studio 8 will be remaking F.W. Murnau's 1922 silent film masterpiece Nosferatu, and they've found a director who wants to bring back Dracula once again. The studio is bringing on filmmaker Robert Eggers, a writer turned director who broke out earlier this year with The Witch at the Sundance Film Festival (still yet to be released by A24). Eggers will write & direct the new Nosferatu, a fitting follow-up to The Witch and another chance for Eggers to show how talented he is. ›››

 The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

"How willing are you to die for your country? I want to know right here, right now." Paramount Pictures has debuted the new trailer for the new Michael Bay movie, called 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi in full. Yep, that's one long title, and it tells you exactly what this is about - the Benghazi incident and the secret ex-military security team that's trying to protect the American Ambassador. The cast includes Pablo Schreiber, John Krasinski, Toby Stephens, David Denman, Max Martini, James Badge Dale, David Costabile, and Dominic Fumusa. There are plenty of Michael Bay-esque explosions in this, plus some characters to follow and a bit of a plot, it doesn't look so bad. Might be good. Check it out below. ›››

Watch: Teaser Trailer for 'Eadweard' About the Very First Filmmaker

Tue, 07/28/2015 - 16:53
Eadweard Teaser Trailer

"Your mind strings the pictures together and creates life." Whoa. Where did this come from? Deadline has premiered a teaser trailer for an indie biopic called Eadweard, about pioneering photographer Eadweard Muybridge who some may say was the very first filmmaker ever. He was the man who experimented with motion and multi-camera photography and eventually shot "The Horse In Motion" in 1886, known sort of as one of the very first movies ever made. Michael Eklund plays Eadweard and he's kind of a quirky proto-hipster, with a beard and a passion for vintage cameras. But this actually looks really, really good with some excellent attention to deal and an interesting story about an inventor. I am curious to see it as soon as I can. ›››

The film is about three dudes, three bros, who get together on Christmas eve in New York City to throw the most epic Christmas party ever as friends.

This looks downright hilarious, I'm ready to laugh my ass off this holiday season with the wackest holiday comedy around. Rogen tweeted this out saying it "was made by Jews, is about Christmas, and opens on Thanksgiving." Sounds perfect. Have fun! ›››

Sicario Trailer

"Every day across that border people are kidnapped, or killed." Lionsgate has debuted the second full-on trailer for Denis Villeneuve's Sicario starring Emily Blunt and it is intense as all hell. This is the film, which already premiered at Cannes (read our review), starring Blunt as a young FBI agent working the drug cartels in Mexico. The first trailer was solid but this cranks things up and reminds us that there's no safety around any corner. The cast includes Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal, Josh Brolin, Jeffrey Donovan and Victor Garber. This is still one of my most anticipated films to see this fall, can't wait to check it out. ›››

Watch: 90's VHS 'Fantastic Four' Trailer with Roger Corman Footage

Tue, 07/28/2015 - 09:46
Fantastic Four

"With every new discovery there is risk…" Check out this amusing old school VHS remix trailer for a totally different Fantastic Four movie. Vulture has remixed and recut footage from the campy Roger Corman Fantastic Four movie made in the early 90s that was never distributed. Josh Trank's take on Fantastic Four hits theaters in a few more weeks, and seems to be a very dark, very grounded take on "what if this really happened to these four people". This version is the total opposite, a glossy and fantastical take on four superheroes trying to save the world. It looks so cheesy and bad I'm even more excited for this year's movie. ›››
