“You want to join them?” Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted the first official trailer for an indie musical titled Saturday Church, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. The film is being described as Moonlight meets La La Land (of course these two films are named), but set in New York City.

Things get wacky and weird. The full cast includes Kathryn Hahn, Joey Morgan, Tim Heidecker, Dylan Gelula, Maya Eshet, plus Eric Edelstein.

Here’s the first red band teaser trailer for Max Winkler’s Flower, direct from YouTube: Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross (Zoey …
