After Bad Buzz, New ‘Welcome To Marwen’ Trailer Course Corrects With A Brand-New Tone Just A Month Later

The first trailer for “Welcome to Marwen” is…interesting. If you knew nothing about the true story the film is based on, you might assume ‘Marwen’ is a fairly light-hearted romp. But for those of us familiar with the documentary “Marwencol” (and if you aren’t, this is your homework for today, seek it out!), the trailer […]

‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” Might Not Be A Great Movie But It Is A Great Time [Review]

The equivalent of a karaoke video made for tens of millions of dollars, “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” is silly, stupid and – Cher help me – so much fun. Your interest drops when you don’t know the ABBA song on screen (“When I Kissed the Teacher,” anyone?) in this jukebox musical sequel, but when you […]

‘Overlord’ Trailer: J.J. Abrams Is Back With A Sci-Fi War Film That Is Not Part Of ‘Cloverfield’

The buzz surrounding the film “Overlord” has less to do with what the film is about and more to do if it’s connected to a well-known franchise. You see, back when rumblings came about that J.J. Abrams was producing another mystery sci-fi/action film, everyone assumed that it would be connected to his “Cloverfield” franchise, in […]

Gus Van Sant Says Robin Williams Originally Was To Star In ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot’

Last week, Joaquin Phoenix’s latest film, “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” was released in select theaters.

In an interview with the Independent, actor Matthias Schoenaerts discussed his work on the forthcoming film “Radegund” with Malick, and it was revealed that the film might see it’s premiere later this year at one of […]

‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ Trailer: Joe Cole Fights For His Life In Prison

The 2017 Cannes Film Fest was of a great year for films full of non-actors. Sean Baker’s “The Florida Project” introduced us to the excellent talents of Brooklynn Prince and Bria Vinaite. Then Chloe Zhao’s “The Rider” uniquely told South Dakota cowboy Brady Jandreau’s real-life story with him playing a fictional version of himself. Continue […]

Unpacking ‘Sorry To Bother You’ And ‘Legacy Of A Whitetail Deer Hunter’ [Adjust Your Tracking Podcast]

Everything in its right place… On this episode of Adjust Your Tracking, Joe and I get back on mic for the first time since our “Hereditary” episode last month. But it’s for a damn good reason, as we dive into the truly oddball and singular world of Boots Riley‘s “Sorry To Bother You.” The film, a bizarre satire […]

‘Hell Fest’ Trailer: A Killer Uses A Halloween Festival As His Own Personal Playground

As far as a premise goes, “Hell Fest” seems strong. If you were a masked killer and all you wanted to do was hunt annoying millennials, then going to an annual Halloween festival seems like a smart thing to do. Unfortunately, the trailer doesn’t do much else with that premise and instead falls back on […]

Christopher McQuarrie Explains Jeremy Renner’s Absence From ‘Mission: Impossible — Fallout’

Over the years, fans have come to love the cast members of the “Mission: Impossible” films. Leading the way is the duo of Tom Cruise and Ving Rhames, who have been there since the beginning. And in the later films, they’re joined by Simon Pegg and Rebecca Ferguson. However, if you’ve been watching all the […]

‘Elizabeth Harvest’ Trailer: Whatever You Do, Don’t Go In That Room!

Everyone knows that the second they’re told not to go into a specific room, all they can think about is going into that room. That’s the basic premise of the new horror-thriller “Elizabeth Harvest.” As seen in the trailer for the film, which stars Abbey Lee as the titular character, follows a young woman who marries […]
