After costing Disney a pretty penny (or millions of them) with The Lone Ranger and having his North Korea thriller with Steve Carell nixed by New Regency, Gore Verbinski has finally returned with a new film. Originally scheduled to hit theaters this year, A Cure for Wellness was pushed back to February 2017, but a pair of mysteriously creepy viral promos should get you pretty excited for The Ring director’s return to the horror genre.
Well that was quick! Not long after debuting the first official teaser poster, James Gunn has revealed the first honest-to-goodness teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 — and if you were digging that poster, you’re going to love this teaser, which features the delightfully familiar sound of “ooga chaka, ooga chaka, ooga ooga chaka.” Everyone sing along!
Amazon is giving you plenty of things to be thankful for in November, adding dozens of new film and television titles to their streaming library — would it be too much to ask for an add-on program that takes the agony out of deciding what to watch, though? For instance, it’s a heavy first world burden to choose between the first season of AMC’s The Night Manager and binge-watching all of the Rocky movies (yes, even Creed). Before you know it, you’ve already wasted half of your Saturday browsing before you end up rewatching The Addams Family for the billionth time.
Like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man before it, Doctor Strange is kind of a wild card in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the titular hero doesn’t have the same name recognition among general audiences as, say, Captain America. But Marvel is using that to their advantage and taking some bolder creative risks with the Sorcerer Supreme’s solo outing. At a special preview event, the studio screened 15 dizzying minutes of IMAX footage from the upcoming film, and it’s far weirder and wilder than those trailers are letting on.
Looks like the studio behind Bad Moms is creeping in on Wes Anderson’s territory: STX Entertainment is reportedly developing a spinoff to this summer’s hit comedy, this time focusing on not-so-great dads. Let’s be honest, though — Bad Dads could describe Wes Anderson’s whole filmography (there’s even an Anderson art tribute show and book with that title), but it could also easily describe most studio comedies.
Not to confuse you or anything, but this is the first full official trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars — even though you may have understandably thought that the first trailer was, you know, the first one. But that was a “Legacy” trailer, which offered a little recap of the previous films along with a preview of the upcoming sequel. This is a “full official trailer,” which means it’s for Underworld veterans only. No newbies allowed.
Do you like the Taken films? Do you love John Wick? (That’s a rhetorical question; of course you do.) What if you combined the two into one film, threw in some dirty cops and Jamie Foxx with a vendetta? You’d get Sleepless, the new remake of the acclaimed French action film Sleepless Night. The first trailer for the upcoming thriller ticks off all the right boxes, and with the help of some great music and excellent editing, we were sold on this one before the 60-second mark.
If you loved Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin, then you’re going to want to pay attention to Evolution. After debuting at TIFF in 2015, Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s gorgeous and surreal sci-fi drama spent the past year on the festival circuit, playing everywhere from Paris to Portland. And now that Evolution is finally heading to theaters in November, IFC Midnight has released a new trailer that offers a tantalizing preview as enigmatic and unnerving as the film itself.
So much for that acting hiatus, huh? Just a couple of weeks after announcing that she’s taking a break from acting to assess her career choices, Chloe Moretz has already lined up her next project, but at least it’s a potentially interesting one: The young star is joining Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson in the long-developing remake of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic Suspiria.
We’ll never get to see that series of 2016 election ads starring Terry Crews, but there’s still good news for fans of President Camacho and Mike Judge’s Idiocracy: The 2006 cult classic comedy is celebrating its 10th anniversary by returning to theaters this October, just one month ahead of the presidential election — you know, just in case you need a little boost of humor (or a scarily prescient reminder) before you head into the voting booth.
It seems pretty silly that anyone would bother with releasing a green band trailer for Bad Santa 2 — it’s not as if this movie is for people who aren’t aware of what they’re getting into. The whole selling point is Billy Bob Thornton as a booze-drenched, foul-mouthed and utterly despicable (that’s seriously an understatement) crook who dresses up as Santa. Any pretense of propriety has been dropped with the release of the second red band trailer which is, somehow, more crass than the first.
Karyn Kusama handily delivered one of this year’s best thrillers with The Invitation, an incredibly unnerving and masterful “horror film for grown-ups” that proves you don’t need gimmicky jump scares and supernatural creatures to create chilling atmosphere and spooky vibes. Although her most recent effort wasn’t overt horror, it looks like Kusama’s next project definitely is, as she’s attached herself to helm Breed for executive producer Scott Frank.
