Happy Friday the 13th. Now this is a damn movie trailer. A French cannibal movie is always going to be on my radar, and it doesn’t hurt that Julia Ducournau’s Raw is supposed to be fantastic and reportedly made audience members faint at multiple festival stops. I still haven’t seen it yet, but as a U.S. release approaches, this new red band trailer gives us a taste, and I love the flavor (sorry, I couldn’t help myself). There’s also a green band trailer and poster.

A PG-13 horror movie released in early January, written by a cast member of Survivor, and directed by the woman who helmed Snoop Dogg’s Hood of Horror. I never go into a movie assuming it’s bad, but The Bye Bye Man certainly has an uphill battle to fight against a slew of potential preconceived notions. It checks off a lot of boxes that frequently keep audiences away from this sort of fare.
Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson is a movie about small things. It’s about finding the beauty in simplicity and the little ways we’re all creative. Almost nothing happens. That’s sure to turn off many viewers. But that’s also the entire point.

Plot Details For Nicolas Winding Refn's Spy Thriller 'The Avenging Silence' Sound Weird As Hell And Amazing
After the critical and popular acclaim of Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn’s last two movies, Only God Forgives and The Neon Demon (both of which I adore, by the way), took a lot of flack. Still, my favorite NWR joint is 2009’s under-appreciated, epic, hallucinatory Viking road trip, Valhalla Rising. Off-kilter, savage, and hypnotic, it’s right in my wheelhouse. A ton of new plot details have emerged about the filmmaker’s next project, The Avenging Silence, and it sound like it strays into similarly nightmarish thematic territory, which is nice.
A24 has been on a tear. Just last year the indie factory farm released The Witch, Green Room, The Lobster, Moonlight, and a ton of other fantastic movies. Basically, they can do whatever the hell they want and I’ll at least give it a shot. If nothing else, it’ll be interesting. Such is the case with their new mystery science fiction project. There’s not much to go on from this trailer, which looks a little like Word Association: The Movie. Take a look.

Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s speculative fiction classic, The Handmaid’s Tale, couldn’t be timed any better. Unless maybe it debuted late next week. We’ve seen a few stills, but today brings our first look at actual footage. Check out the first trailer below.
