So far, March is shaping up to be great month for badass female-fronted international action movies. First up we have Veronica Ngo in Furie, which looks incredible, and though it’s full of dudes, Triple Threat prominently features JeeJa Yanin and Celina Jade. And now there’s Filipino director Pedring Lopez’ Maria to add to the pile. Check out the trailer below and mark your calendars.

'Triple Frontier' Trailer: Handsome Men Rob Drug Dealers

Handsome Man and a Mule

Handsome white men can get away with damn near anything. From the look of the new trailer for J.C. Chandor’s Triple Frontier, the film plans to push this thesis to the extreme as a bunch of good looking dudes—Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Pedro Pascal, and Garrett Heduld—basically invade a foreign country to rob a drug cartel. What can possibly go wrong?

'Donnybrook' (2018) Movie Review

Man and a punching bag

Holy hell, Donnybrook is bleak. A movie about a down-on-his-luck former soldier and a vicious drug dealer competing for $100,000 in an underground bare-knuckle melee already sounds grim, but damn. 

'Triple Threat' Trailer: Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Scott Adkins, And Everyone Else Are Here To Fight

Happy Valentine’s Day! While some choose to celebrate this holiday with candy, candlelight, and other romantic markers, I prefer the way the good folks behind Triple Threat like to party, with face kicking, spinning elbows, flying knees, and general badass action mayhem. Yes, the full Triple Threat trailer promised a few days ago has arrived, and all I can say is, “Hell Yes!” to what is apparently “the killingest action event of the year.”

A low-budget, teens-in-peril horror movie from Blumhouse and starring Octavia Spencer? Yes, please, sign me up for your newsletter. I didn’t know this movie existed until yesterday, but this new trailer for Ma puts this on my radar in a big way. Take a look below.

This 'Triple Threat' Trailer Teaser May Be Short But Still Punches Everyone In The Face

Under normal circumstances, I’m not inclined to share trailers for trailers That’s generally a ridiculous practice and sharing actual trailers is problematic enough. (I’m a fan, they get me hyped, but I now many folks who avoid them like the plague—to each his own.) That said, I’m all kinds of jacked up for Triple Threat, there’s a new trailer coming Thursday, and there’s a teaser for that impending preview. And here it is.

If you thought dolls were creepy before…well, they’re still creepy, but now they’ll kill you and your mom. At least that’s the general gist of this trailer for the new incarnation of Child’s Play. Check it out below. Friends to the end?
