This 'John Wick 3' Trailer Prepares For War And Cute Dogs

Oh dang, I got a late start this morning and what happens? There’s a damn John Wick: Chapter 3—Parabellum (that’s an unwieldy mouthful of a title) trailer to gawk at like a slack-jawed yokel. At this point, what needs to be said about the best action franchise currently on the market? (Sorry, Mission: Impossible, you’re great, too.) Just give this a spin below.

Robert Pattinson And Claire Denis Explore The Depths Of Space, And Humanity, In This 'High Life' Trailer

Claire Denis directing a stellar (sorry) cast in an esoteric, deep-space hybrid of sci-fi, drama, and horror. You better believe I’m psyched beyond belief for High Life. Some folks saw it on the fall film festival circuit last year, but the rest of us have to wait until April—at least it has a release date now. But everything we’ve seen, including this new trailer, makes it look worth having patience.

Watch The First 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Trailer

Once Marvel snagged back the rights to Spider-Man (or at least worked out whatever back-alley deal they agreed upon with Sony), they turned in Spider-Man: Homecoming, easily the best Wall Crawler adventure since Sam Raimi took a swat at the character. (Admittedly, I haven’t seen Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is supposed to be fabulous—but I’m talking live-action here.) The Web Slinger is back once again in 2019 for Spider-Man: Far From Home, and you can watch the first teaser trailer now.

Art Is Dangerous In The First 'Velvet Buzzsaw' Trailer

Last time star Jake Gyllenhaal and director Dan Gilroy got together, the result was Nightcrawler, a thriller that crackles with an electric energy and features the actor’s career-best performance IMO. They’re back at it again with Velvet Buzzsaw, and I know it’s just a trailer, but this first real glimpse at the art-world-set horror looks incredible. I was already intrigued, but hot damn, I can’t wait to check this out.

Jean-Claude Van Damme's 'The Bouncer' Gets A Dark, Gritty Trailer

As someone who grew up on Jean-Claude Van Damme movies, I’m happy he still largely makes the same types of movies he always made. (There are, of course, variances with the likes of JCVD and Jean-Claude Van Johnson, both of which are meta, self-referential, and great.) Sure, they all land on VOD these days, but by and large, he continues to work in the same low-to-lowish budget action realm ad the bulk of his career, with roughly the same awesome-to-stinker ratio. Some of his films rule, others not so much, but this trailer for his latest, The Bouncer, looks like it might be the former rather than the latter.

'Buffalo Boys' (2018) Movie Review

Two brothers return from far away, to a home they left when they were too young to remember, only to find it overrun with violent, corrupt outsiders who rule over their people with an iron fist and exploit every resource. Sounds like a standard western plot. And it is, but in Buffalo Boys, instead of a historical American epic, director Mike Wiluan transfers the setup to 19th century Java.

'Polar' Trailer: Mads Mikkelsen Does His Best Badass 'John Wick' Impression. Yes, Please.

Uh, one-eyed Mads Mikkelsen playing a former assassin named “The Black Kaiser,” doing his best over-the-top John Wick impersonation in a snow-covered wilderness? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. This trailer for Netflix’s upcoming Polar is extremely my speed. Check it out below and mark January 25 on your calendars.
