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.
That headline is slightly misleading: Most people aren’t familiar with the name Christine Chubbuck, the subject of the new film from Afterschool and Simon Killer director Antonio Campos. But to her former co-workers, certain morbid corners of the internet, and a handful of cinema fans, her name is synonymous with one of the most tragic and harrowing events in television history. That event is teased to a chilling degree in the first trailer for Christine, starring an absolutely compelling Rebecca Hall in the title role.
Just when you thought it was safe to buy dolls again…Nope. Here’s the first trailer for Annabelle 2, which, as the title suggests, is a sequel to last year’s relatively successful James Wan-produced spinoff of The Conjuring, featuring that damn creepy doll and her creepy antics. This time, she’s terrorizing a doll-maker, and that seems totally fair, to be honest, since he’s responsible for the creation of her kind and their endless suffering at the hands of ruthless children.
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.
