'Seized' Trailer: Scott Adkins, Isaac Florentine, And Mario Van Peebles In A Cowboy Hat

Scott Adkins, Isaac Florentine, Mario Van Peebles in a cowboy hat? The upcoming action/revenge movie Seized has all of that, which is more than enough to get me fully on board. I don’t know how I let this trailer slip by, but damn, it’s here now and that’s all that matters.

'The Witch: Part 1-The Subversion' (2018) Movie Review

Koo Ja-yoon (Kim Da-mi) looks like a normal teenage girl. Sure, she’s exceptionally bright and talented, and extraordinarily devoted to her aging parents and their failing farm, but by most measures, she’s an average kid on the cusp of adulthood. Except in Park Hoon-jung’s The Witch: Part 1—The Subversion, she’s also an escaped child soldier with telekinetic powers on the run the government agency that genetically created her in a lab,  and she may or may not remember all of that. The result plays like an action-heavy sci-fi/horror version of The Long Kiss Goodnight, with Dark Angel flourishes thrown in for good measure. (And yes, I mean the James Cameron/Jessica Alba show from the late 1990s, and yes, I mean that in a good way.)

'Bill & Ted Face The Music' Gets A New Trailer, Release Date, And Release Strategy

COVID-19 continues to rewrite the world, especially here in the U.S. because we’re too cool to wear masks and not flood public spaces the second the weather got nice. It’s affected every industry, and the entertainment industry is no different. With theaters closed, limited, or closing, and most productions halted, everything is delayed. Studios and distributors are scrambling to find new, profitable ways to get their films in front of audiences. One movie that’s shifted its plans is Bill & Ted Face the Music. The long-gestating sequel has a new release date and new strategy, and a new trailer to mark the occasion.

'The Rental' (2020) Movie Review

The Rental doesn’t have a whit of originality in its 89 minutes. This is a beat for beat, paint-by-number horror thriller. However, it does what it does well enough, knows not to overstay its welcome, and a fantastic cast ensures the film at least remains watchable throughout.

'Possessor' Trailer: Brandon Cronenberg Delivers Gruesome, Gory Sci-Fi

With the name Cronenberg, you have our immediate attention. You’re probably thinking David Cronenberg, director of Scanners, The Fly, Eastern Promises, and a ton of other masterpieces. This time, however, we’re talking about his son, Brandon Cronenberg, who has become a filmmaker of some renown in his own right. And from the look of this red band trailer for his sophomore feature, Possessor, the body horror apple doesn’t fall far from the body horror tree. Check it out.

'Project Power' Trailer: Jamie Foxx And Joseph Gordon-Levitt Team Up For Netflix's Latest Action Movie

Yeah, sure, why the hell not? I’d seriously never heard of Project Power, which sounds like a reality show about electrical engineers, until yesterday. But an action movie starring Jamie Foxx and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, about a drug that gives users five-minutes of a surprise power? (Maybe you’ll be invisible, maybe you’re super strong.) I’ll watch that. Check out the first trailer from the upcoming Netflix movie below.

This 'Halloween Kills' Teaser Trailer Lets It Burn, Reveals New Release Date

Among many other things, COVID-19 has decimated the movie industry. Production came to a screeching halt around the world and every major movie of the spring and summer, and most others as well, pulled their release. Some pushed back a few months, while others will arrive in theaters—in theory anyway—much later. One of those is the upcoming Halloween Kills. It is still coming, however, not until a year after originally expected. Along with a new release date of October 15, 2021, there’s also this new Halloween Kills teaser trailer.

'Mortal' Trailer: Nat Wolff Plays With Fire In André Øvredal’s Latest

André Øvredal’s Mortal has been in the works for a while. There was talk of it even around the time of The Autopsy of Jane Doe, well before Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Though it’s taken it’s sweet time, the Trollhunter director is back and this Mortal trailer further convinced us this is something we need to see ASAP.
