After spending yet another season of Boardwalk Empire as a walking repressed tornado of coiled rage, Michael Shannon takes the lead in the upcoming true-life crime film The Iceman. He plays a hitman with exceptional ’70s facial hair, and to judge by the trailer, he’s flanked by one of the greatest random casts ever assembled. Winona Ryder as The Wife! Ray Liotta as The Mob Boss! James Franco, mewling like Troy-era Orlando Bloom! And even a very special, completely unrecognizable appearance by a certain big-screen superhero.

It’s a dramatic American true story — about as dramatic as they come, really. But the tale of Jackie Robinson, the first black man to play Major League Baseball, has only made it to the big screen one time, in 1950, with Robinson playing himself. That is, until this April, when 42 arrives in theaters with newcomer Chadwick Boseman as Robinson and Harrison Ford as Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers general manager who signed Robinson in 1945.
The new trailer for the film, written and directed by Brian Helgeland (Payback, A Knight’s Tale), makes clear Robinson’s road to the Dodgers’ dugout was fraught with racist players, referees, even fellow teammates — as well as the impossible pressures that accompany becoming a national role model. But thanks in part to Jay-Z’s thumping anthem “Brooklyn Go Hard,” the trailer also makes clear Robinson’s story has the potential to deliver the goosebumps of triumph and inspiration.

Danny Boyle’s first project since vanquishing Lord Voldemort at the London Olympics involves an art heist and hypnotherapy. Naturally.
In the Slumdog Millionaire director’s new feature, Trance, James McAvoy plays an art auctioneer who teams up with a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) to recover the location of a painting that goes missing during an attempted robbery. French actor Vincent Cassel plays the baddie in charge of the heist. Romance, intrigue, and thick foreign accents abound.
Watch the trailer below:
When I spoke with French director Quentin Dupieux just before the release of his memorably odd, 2011 movie Rubber he said that his next film, Wrong, would be a “super simple” story about a guy looking for his dog. What he didn’t mention was the movie would also feature — as the film’s new trailer makes clear — a character who seems delighted about the fact that his face has been horribly burned with acid and another who believes it is possible to access the memory of canine feces. Then again, Rubber concerns the adventures of a homicidal car tire so maybe Dupieux believes these kinds of things are just a normal part of the contemporary cine-scape.
Regardless, you can check out the trailer for Wrong — which is available on VOD from February 1 and hits cinemas March 29 — below.
Take a look and tell us what you think.

There’s teeth-chattering horror, and then there’s camp, and then there’s both, which is exactly what happens in the new trailer for Eli Roth-produced The Last Exorcism Part II, out in theaters March 1.
Check out the trailer, below, full of all the usual suspects: whispered cliches (“He’ll kill us alllllllll”), blackened evil eyes, gymnastics-worthy possession-caused backbends, creepy-sounding songs, and of course, lots of screams. When redhead Ashley Bell as demon-plagued Nell Sweetzer yells out, “MAKE IT STOP!” you kind of agree with her.

Like a woodland-trapped demon waiting for someone to read the appropriate, evil-corporealizing incantation, the Evil Dead movie franchise has been quiet since 1992′s Army of Darkness. But that will change on April 12 when the remake of director Sam Raimi’s original 1981 shocker The Evil Dead hits cinemas. Produced by the architects of the previous three films in the franchise — Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce “Ash” Campbell — this new iteration is cowritten by Diablo Cody and stars Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Shiloh Fernandez, and Lou Taylor Pucci. Replacing Raimi in the director’s chair is newcomer Fede Alvarez, whose alien invasion short film Panic Attack! has garnered an impressive 7m views on the ol’ YouTube.
Colin Farrell stars in Dead Man Down as some kind of criminal hitman with a heart of gold. But the real draw for the thriller, opening in March, is that it reteams Noomi Rapace (a.k.a. “original Swedish Lisbeth Salander”) with director Niels Arden Oplev (a.k.a. “Original Swedish director of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”) That collaboration positively guarantees that everyone who discovered Dragon Tattoo on Netflix a couple of years ago will go see this movie, if only to complain about the inevitable David Fincher remake. The film also stars Terrence Howard as a vile mob boss. It looks pretty cool. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY »
Are you looking for an education where extraordinary comes standard? Where you can be unique in a family of thousands? Where you can love to learn and learn what you love? Forget Harvard, Princeton, and Yale. Monsters University is the place for you!
Disney Pixar unveiled its latest promo for the upcoming Monsters, Inc. prequel Monsters University at Tuesday’s Rose Bowl Parade. Styled like a typical college recruitment ad, the short TV promo shows nothing of our favorite monsters Sulley or Mike, but rather focuses on the university itself, beautiful autumn colors and all. So if you’re reeling from an early college rejection, perhaps you should consider checking out MU. Watch the spot below: READ FULL STORY »
You know, because they’re in a scary movie. What did you think I meant?
After a seven-year hiatus, Dimension Films’s killer parody series will return next year with a 5quel that takes aim at cutting-edge, topical targets including Paranormal Activity (released in 2007), Inception (2010), Black Swan (2010), and Lindsay Lohan’s career (1998-2007). Lohan is just one of several stars, including Charlie Sheen and Mike Tyson, who play themselves in the film; High School Musical alum Ashley Tisdale stars as an actual character, taking over for franchise mainstay Anna Faris.
Here’s the movie’s official trailer, which should be just the thing to suck away any and all remaining Christmas cheer:
Ah, Chile — land of unspoiled natural beauty, perfect weather, and gorgeous locals wearing little but bathing suits. Nothing could ever go wrong here… right?
Well, unless you’re horror virtuoso Eli Roth, and you’re co-writing and starring in a new thriller set within its borders. In that case, Chile isn’t just the “indie station of Latin America,” whatever that means — it’s a place where a devastating earthquake is just a preamble to the violence committed by the quake’s victims. Call it a disaster movie meets Lord of the Flies, encapsulated by this line from the film’s new teaser: “The only thing more terrifying than mother nature is… human nature.”
Watch a lovely, sun-soaked vacation devolve into a horrific, fire-filled, ax-wielding nightmare in the clip below. Shades of Hostel, anyone?
