First Trailer for A24's 'The Ballad of Lefty Brown' Starring Bill Pullman

4 hours ago

"Chase down Eddie's killer, then bring him back." A24 has debuted a trailer for western drama The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from filmmaker Jared Moshe, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival this year. Bill Pullman stars as washed-up sidekick Lefty Brown, who watches his longtime friend/partner murdered before his eyes. He decides to go after the killer, rallying a group of people to support him, including an old, experienced gunhand and a young cowboy. The full cast includes Kathy Baker, Jim Caviezel, Tommy Flanagan, Diego Josef, and Joe Anderson, with an appearance by Peter Fonda as Lefty's murdered friend. This looks damn good, a moody revenge western with some real grit. Pullman seems great as always. Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Jared Moshe's The Ballad of Lefty Brown, from A24's YouTube: Aging sidekick Lefty Brown (Bill Pullman) has ridden with Eddie Johnson (Peter Fonda) his entire life. »

Al Pacino Plays a Detective in First Trailer for 'Hangman' Crime Thriller

6 hours ago

"We're gunna find this guy." A trailer has arrived for a new crime thriller titled Hangman, which is about detectives hunting a serial killer, but apparently it even has some similarities to Paranormal Activity. Say what? From director Johnny Martin (of this year's Vengeance: A Love Story) the crime thriller stars Al Pacino as a homicide detective who teams up with a criminal profiler to catch a serial killer whose crimes are inspired by the children's game Hangman. Also starring Karl Urban, Brittany Snow, Sarah Shahi, and Joe Anderson. From the footage in this trailer, this seems closer to "Mindhunter" or "True Detective" or even The Snowman than most crime dramas, but maybe there's a big twist in it. Might be worth a look. Here's the first full-length trailer (+ poster) for Johnny Martin's Hangman, direct from YouTube: Decorated homicide detective Ray Archer (Al Pacino) and his partner, criminal profiler Will Ruiney, »

Michelle Morgan & Jorma Taccone in Trailer for 'It Happened In L.A.'

7 hours ago

"You know, I've never really thought about it before, but palm trees are actually very condescending." The Orchard has revealed a trailer for another indie comedy titled It Happened in L.A., formerly known as L.A. Times when it premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Written and directed by Michelle Morgan, and starring Morgan, the film is a classically styled comedy of manners set in Los Angeles about relationships. A thirty-something couple, played by Morgan and Jorma Taccone, try to determine whether ideal happiness exists in coupledom or if the perfectly suited couple is actually just an urban myth. This is a very odd, kooky little film with some off-beat humor that you'll either like or hate. Some of you will laugh your ass off, others will be uncomfortable by this, but that's why it's a unique comedy. Check this out below. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Michelle Morgan »

First Trailer for Louis C.K.'s Latest Twisted Comedy 'I Love You, Daddy'

7 hours ago

"A girl that age is getting into trouble..." The Orchard has debuted the first trailer for indie comedy I Love You, Daddy, the latest film from Louis C.K. that premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this fall to rave reviews. The timing of this film almost seems eerily coincidental and relevant to recent headlines about the film industry. I Love You, Daddy is about a successful TV writer who freaks out when daughter becomes the interest of an aging filmmaker with an appalling past. Conceived in the high style of 1940s Hollywood, with lustrous B&W 35mm photography and a soaring orchestral score, it "blends a classic look with Louis C.K.'s raucous modern comic sensibility to tell the story of a flawed man's struggle to connect with his daughter and get back on his feet as an artist." This stars Louis C.K., Chloe Moretz, John Malkovich, Rose Byrne, »

Official UK Trailer for Fun 'The Prince Of Nothingwood' Documentary

13 hours ago

"Hollywood (Us), Bollywood (India), Nollywood (Nigeria)... Nothingwood (Afghanistan!)" You don't want to miss this. Vertigo Releasing has debuted an official UK trailer for a documentary titled The Prince of Nothingwood, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. The film profiles an actor named Salim Shaheen, the most famous actor in Afghanistan, who produces, directs, and stars in extremely low budget movies made in his own country. He's basically the most famous guy from "Nothingwood" and is beloved by everyone there, no matter who they are or where they're from (in the midst of Afghanistan's wars and poverty). It's actually an engaging, fascinating documentary that shows the power of movies and how they can bring people together, along with an inside look at this embattled country and its people. Have fun. Here's the UK trailer (+ poster) for Sonia Kronlund's doc The Prince of Nothingwood, from YouTube: Salim Shaheen »

A Woman Becomes a Dog in First Trailer for Dark Comedy Film 'Bitch'

14 hours ago

"Maybe Jill is doing you a favor? Maybe it's the life you're supposed to be living..." The official trailer has debuted for a bizarre dark comedy film titled Bitch, from indie writer/director Marianna Palka (Always Worthy, Good Dick), who also co-stars in the film. The film is about a woman who assumes the psyche of a vicious dog as her checked-out, philandering husband attempts to keep the family together. Palka stars as Jill, and Jason Ritter stars as her husband (the same duo who co-starred in Palka's Good Dick in 2008, though I don't think these are shared universes). The cast includes Jaime King and Brighton Sharbino, with appearances by Sol Rodriguez, Roger Guenveur Smith, Eric Edelstein, and Martin Starr. This looks totally wacky and biting (no pun intended) and comedic in the weirdest of ways. Worth a quick look. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Marianna Palka's Bitch, »

17 October 2017 4:10 PM, PDT

"Fate has ordained that the men who went to Mars to explore in peace will stay on Mars to rest in peace..." This new sci-fi short film is pretty damn cool, and worth a watch if you love space exploration as much as I do. Others Will Follow is a sci-fi short made by Andrew Finch, based on the Apollo 11 contingency speech written for Nixon in the case that the astronauts ended up on stuck on the Moon, unable to return home. The short film is about a failed mission to Mars and the value of human space flight. Featuring the voice of Bruce Greenwood, and starring Winston Tao, Erica Sabol, and Damian Chey.

Official Trailer for Horror Thriller Film 'Angelica' Starring Jena Malone

17 October 2017 3:53 PM, PDT

"The evil that troubles your home must see that I am your invited guest." Freestyle has revealed an official trailer for the horror thriller Angelica, which has been sitting on the shelf for two years awaiting release. Angelica is the latest film from Mitchell Lichtenstein, the director of that wacky, freaky horror film Teeth from a decade ago. This is a supernatural thriller set in Victorian England about a couple who encounter a ghost in their house after having a baby named Angelica. It's described as a "spellbinding ghost story about desire, repression and its consequences", which sounds like it could be good, but also sounds like it could be bad. Jena Malone stars, also with Ed Stoppard, Janet McTeer, Tovah Feldshuh, Charles Keating, Daniel Gerroll, and James Norton. The footage is creepy, but it doesn't seem like anything that special. Here's the official trailer (+ old poster) for Mitchell Lichtenstein's Angelica, »

Ethan Hawke in First Trailer for Action-Packed Film '24 Hours to Live'

17 October 2017 12:35 PM, PDT

"I'm going to come at you with everything I've got!" Saban Films has unveiled an official trailer for an action film titled 24 Hours to Live, yet another assassin movie if you're up for another one of these. Ethan Hawke stars as a career assassin who is given a chance at redemption after his employer brings him back to life temporarily after being killed on the job. Sounds a bit like the plot to Crank, but this doesn't look similar at all. The rest of the cast includes Xu Qing, Liam Cunningham, Rutger Hauer, and Paul Anderson. I'm seriously surprised that Ethan Hawke is in a film like this, but I guess he needs some extra work to keep things going. The clock on the arm isn't an original idea, but it is kind of cool. Fire it up below. Here's the first official trailer for Brian Smrz's 24 Hours to Live, »

Watch: Uber Gorgeous Animated Adventure Short 'Fox and the Whale'

16 October 2017 2:50 PM, PDT

This is one of those jaw-dropping stunning animated short films that you need to stop and watch right away. Fox and the Whale is animated short made by Robin Joseph about a fox that goes on an adventure to find a whale. While the plot is seemingly that simple on paper, this gorgeous film has so much more depth to it than that, and will leave your mind reeling. This film reminds me of Don Hertzfeldt's animated shorts because there's so much profoundness to it, and that's not something easy to pull off. There's nothing more to say now than please just take a moment to watch and enjoy this mesmerizing work of art. It's so worth it. Thanks to Film School Rejects for the tip on this. Originally from Vimeo. Description: "A curious fox goes searches for an elusive whale." This was an Independent, self-financed project with character animation by Kim Leow. »

Full Trailer for Ryan Coogler's 'Black Panther' with Chadwick Boseman

16 October 2017 8:02 AM, PDT

"My son, it is your time. You get to decide what kind of King you are going to be." Disney has revealed the full-length official trailer for Marvel's Black Panther movie, directed by the talented filmmaker Ryan Coogler (of Fruitvale Station, Creed), and it looks awesome. The story follows King T'Challa, once again played by Chadwick Boseman, who goes back to his African nation of Wakanda after the events of Civil War. There he encounters new enemies that want to challenge his seat on the throne, and destroy Wakanda. The outstanding ensemble cast includes Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis, Florence Kasumba, John Kani, Winston Duke, and Sterling K. Brown. This looks damn good. Yes it looks like another Marvel movie, but I dig the Coogler's style and boldness, seems a bit more unique than others. Check it out. »
