Released in 1999, The Blair Witch Project quickly became one of the most profitable independent films of all time. It wasn’t technically the first found footage horror film, but it’s still the most famous of the bunch. Everyone knows the Blair Witch name (and the names Heather, Josh and Mike), but did you know that directors Eduardo Sanchez and Daniel Myrick’s wildly successful horror flick didn’t even have a script? That’s just one of the facts featured in the last episode of You Think You Know Movies!
You may recall an atmospheric black-and-white Iranian vampire film from a couple of years back called A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night; the debut feature from Ana Lily Amirpour was one of the best films of 2014, and introduced us to a promising new director. Amirpour is back this year with The Bad Batch, a dystopian cannibal western that’s playing this month at TIFF and stars Jason Momoa, Suki Waterhouse, Keanu Reeves and Jim Carrey (this cast is nuts, y’all). To give us a little, um, taste of what’s in store, two new clips from the film have debuted online, and they might be a little different from what you expected.
Anticipation for Arrival to, well, arrive is pretty high, with several cinephiles eager to experience the latest effort from Denis Villeneuve — the director of last year’s exquisitely intense Sicario. If you’re feeling particularly anxious to see more from the new sci-fi drama, Sony has released two new clips that expand upon a couple of scenes from the trailer, in which Amy Adams’ expert linguist first meets our unearthly visitors.
Jacob Tremblay has had it with your “aww”s and dumb baby noises. He will not conform to society’s expectations of what an adorable child actor should be. He will not be boxed in by your precious stereotypes. The star of Room is determined to shatter his Cute Kid persona before the adhesive on that label even has a chance to dry, as evidenced by the trailer for Shut In (the anti-Room, if you will), Tremblay’s latest attempt at defying twee norms.
Vice Principals Season 1 may be ending next month, but HBO NOW’s September slate also includes the series premiere of the network’s latest comedy offering, High Maintenance. For those interested in catching up with (or revisiting) newer films, HBO’s big September movie additions include The Revenant and Steve Jobs.
Not long ago we learned that Idiocracy director Mike Judge and screenwriter Etan Cohen were planning on making a series of anti-Trump ads for the coming election, which would feature Terry Crews reprising his role as President Camacho. Not long after that, it was revealed that the ads wouldn’t be happening after all, and in a new interview, Judge himself explains why the idea ultimately fell apart.
September is a big month for Amazon streaming releases, and if you have a Prime membership, there’s plenty to get excited about — like the highly-anticipated debut of Transparent Season 3. Also premiering next month are new shows from Tig Notaro and Woody Allen, as well as the addition of several films, including a handful of classic titles and recent favorites like The Witch and Sicario. Read on for our complete guide to Amazon Prime Instant Video’s new releases.
2016 has been the year of pop culture surprise releases — some, like Lemonade and 10 Cloverfield Lane, have been pretty great, which makes us even more hopeful for Blair Witch. Originally marketed as The Woods, the sneaky sequel to the found footage horror classic is set to hit theaters next month, taking audiences back to where it all began…but judging by these new TV spots, heading back into the woods of Burkittsville seems like a pretty terrible idea (in a good, spooky way, of course).
In news that might make you go “Uhh…,” John Turturro is reportedly filming a secret spinoff to The Big Lebowski. Turturro is said to be shooting the new film, which is based on his salacious Jesus Quintana character from the Coens’ cult classic, under a misleading production title in New York. The only thing more surprising than this movie is its bizarre plot.
It should go without saying, but the red band trailer for Bad Santa 2 is NSFW — or for life, really, but that depends on your level of sensitivity. If there was any doubt that the sequel could be as profane and gleefully repulsive as its predecessor, the latest trailer should restore your optimism…or cynicism, as it were. Never fear, Billy Bob Thornton’s unsavory Santa has returned, and he’s just as foul as ever.
Ah yes, the red band trailer. When you absolutely, positively have to hear all the F-bombs a film can offer, the red band trailer is for you. And the latest preview for Don’t Breathe sure does love those F-bombs, but at least it’s found a somewhat clever way to incorporate them. if nothing else, the new trailer for the latest film from Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez is determined to let you know that things are about to get “really f—ed up.”
Hey, remember Masterminds? We saw the first trailer for the film last year, when it was originally set to hit theaters in August. But the latest comedy from Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess fell victim to Relativity Studios’ bankruptcy and was pushed back to this September — well over a year after its original release date. Now that it’s finally seeing the light of day (or the dark of the theater, whatever), Masterminds has a new trailer to remind you that A. It is definitely hitting theaters soon, and B. There are some very good reasons to see it.
