This news has been floating around for at least a day or two, so it’s not the freshest dish, but I can’t stop thinking about it and getting really, really, ridiculously excited. It is, definitively, the best news. 30 amazing Shaw Brothers joints have been refurbished and are coming back to theaters.

Earlier this week, we got our first glimpse at footage from Martyrs director Pascal Laugier’s new movie, the upcoming Ghostland. The release is still a few months out—March 14 in France, so no telling when the rest of the world will get our grubby mitts on it—but now we’ve got a longer trailer to gawk at.
Den of Thieves is just my kind of trash. The directorial debut of London has Fallen writer Christian Gudegast, the sprawling heist film plays like a bargain bin version of Michael Mann’s 1995 classic Heat. Only more macho. Which is impressive, given Heat is already jacked up on testosterone and fragile male egos.

I dig Train to Busan. It’s one of those movies that comes out every once in a while and reminds us that there’s still life left in what appears to be a particularly drained subgenre, zombie movies in this case. Now, a short time later, South Korean director Yeon Sang-ho is back to put his stamp on superhero movies with Psychokinesis. Check out the latest trailer below.

Pascal Laugier hasn’t made a movie since 2012’s The Tall Man, but his brutal 2008 masterpiece Martyrs may be the defining moment of the New French Extremity movement. (His only other work in that time was an episode of the TV series XIII.) He’s set to return to theaters this year with Ghostland (or Incident in a Ghost Land depending on where you look). If that’s not enough to perk your ears up, there’s a short, to-the-point new teaser trailer to whet your whistle.
The first season of Hulu’s The Handmaid’sTale was not only grim and timely and captured the attention of audiences and end-of-year awards voters for those very reasons, it also encapsulated the entire narrative from Margaret Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel. Basically, the young series is in uncharted water from here on out. Where season 2 goes remains to be seen, but we have our first look at the upcoming episodes in this new trailer.

“The suburbs are where the craziest shit happens.” True, little dude, true. Between It and Stranger Things, we’re in the midst of an 1980s suburban horror nostalgia tsunami. The latest entry into this cannon looks to be Summer of 84, and as it’s the brainchild of the folks behind Turbo Kid, this new trailer has my full attention.
