“I noticed that know matter how much people had – they still wanted more.” Amazon has debuted a trailer for the superb documentary Generation Wealth, from photographer / filmmaker Lauren Greenfield (also of The Queen of Versailles). This first premiered at the Sundance and Berlin Film Festivals, and it’s an outstanding doc about how our obsession with money has actually gotten worse, and destroyed more lives, than anything positive. Greenfield takes a long-form look at her photography work, by examining a series of shots she took of wealthy kids in Los Angeles and following up with them today to see where they are. In addition, she profiles other wealthy (and formerly wealthy) people and asks them what it means to them. I adore this doc because it perfectly posits how greed will be America’s downfall, with endlessly compelling examples of people good and bad. If you aren’t actually aware just yet, maybe this film will open your eyes. Here’s the trailer …

“It’s all in the mind, y’know…” Get your psychedelic drugs ready, it’s time to take a trip back into the wacky world of The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine. The classic, wacky animated movie Yellow Submarine, released in 1968 as The Beatles’ fourth feature film, is returning to theaters/cinemas in the US and UK. Abraorama has announced the re-release for the 50th anniversary, which will feature a brand new 4K digital restoration of the film. The restoration was done carefully frame-by-frame in order to maintain the delicate nature of the original hand-drawn artwork. It also features a completely new mix in 5.1 stereo surround sound. As always, when a film like this heads back to the big screen, it’s the best time to catch it and experience it the way it was meant to be seen. This is one of those films I still haven’t watched, so I’m looking forward to this. Here’s the official US trailer for the re-release of The Beatles’ …

“Who’s this boy who waits for you everyday?” Grasshopper Films has released an official US trailer for a rebellious drama titled Ava, from Iran, the feature debut of filmmaker Sadaf Foroughi. Deemed “exquisite” and “spellbinding,” the film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and stopped by the Göteborg Film Festival, Portland Film Festival, and New Directors/New Films earlier this year. Ava tells the story of Ava, played by Mahour Jabbari, a high school girl in Iran. Her life becomes more complicated after her mother catches her in an act of rebellion. The cast includes Bahar Noohian, Vahid Aghapoor, Parnian Akhtari, Sarah Alimoradi, Mona Ghiasi, and Houman Hoursan. Rebel, young Ava! This looks great. Impressive cinematography, to go with an inspiring story of fierce independence in the face of oppression. Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for Sadaf Foroughi’s Ava, direct from Grasshopper’s YouTube: Based on her own adolescent experiences, Sadaf Foroughi’s Ava is a gripping debut about a young …

“In order to change her rank she had to change the rules.” Cinedigm has released the trailer for a high school, teen comedy titled Class Rank, one of the first two films directed by actor-turned-filmmaker Eric Stoltz (his other film is Confessions of a Teenage Jesus Jerk). It’s described as a “quirky teen comedy about placement, politics and finding your voice.” The story follows two high school outsiders who join forces in an attempt to overtake the school board. Guided by their families, they enter the perilous word of politics and, in the process, learn a thing or two about love. Yep. Class Rank stars Olivia Holt, Skyler Gisondo, Kristin Chenoweth, plus Bruce Dern. This makes me want to watch Alexander Payne’s Election again. Here’s the new official trailer (+ two posters) for Eric Stoltz’s Class Rank, direct from YouTube: The only thing holding Veronica (Holt) back from her dream of attending Yale is her #2 high-school class ranking. So when she …
