“Return to your tasks immediately or I will inflict pain.” Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for an intriguing high tech horror thriller titled Tau, the feature directorial debut Uruguayan filmmaker Federico D’Alessandro, who has worked as a storyboard artist and animatics supervisor in Hollywood. Tau is about a woman being held captive in a futuristic smart house, who tries to escape by befriending the A.I. program that controls the house. Maika Monroe (from It Follows, Independence Day: Resurgence, The Tribes of Palos Verdes) stars, along with Gary Oldman (what!!) and Ed Skrein. So, this actually looks like a really cool tech thriller, something along the lines of Breaking In or Ex Machina, but more contained and stylistic. Here’s the first official trailer for Federico D’Alessandro’s Tau, direct from Netflix’s YouTube: Kidnapped by an inventor who uses her as a test subject to perfect his robotic AI, a street-smart young woman (Maika Monroe) tries to escape her high-tech prison. Tau is …

“A living fossil.” “Thought to have been extinct…” Warner Bros has debuted a brand new Chinese trailer for Jon Turtletaub’s giant shark movie The Meg, a long-awaited adaptation of Steve Alten’s novel, about a 70-foot long angry, prehistoric shark. The plot is about a group of researchers in a big deep-sea submersible stuck at the bottom of the ocean after being attacked, with Jason Statham trying to rescue them and get rid of the shark. This was co-financed by a Chinese company, and this trailer includes a number of key shots of Li Binging as Suyin, of course. The Meg co-stars Winston Chao, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai, and Masi Oka. There’s not a ton of new footage in this trailer, but it’s fun to watch. Plus, I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m already 100% sold on this anyway – I don’t need any more. …

“She’s not interested in money.” Strand Releasing has debuted an official trailer for a film titled An L.A. Minute, from writer/director Daniel Adams (Primary Motive, The Golden Boys, The Lightkeepers). More importantly, the film stars the very talented up-and-coming actress Kiersey Clemons, who also appears in Hearts Beat Loud – which is now playing in theaters (go see it!). In this film, Clemons plays “an avant-garde performance artist” who befriends a best-selling author who wants to write more personal books rather than the stuff that got him famous. Gabriel Byrne (seen in Hereditary) also co-stars in this film about celebrity and fame and how it works and how fake it all is. The cast includes Bob Balaban, Katherine Kendall, Ed Marinaro, Ned Bellamy, Brianna Baker, Jake Adams, and Ash Adams. Doesn’t look that great. Here’s the first official trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Adams’ An L.A. Minute, direct from YouTube: An L.A. Minute is a satirical look at fame, success, the star-making …

“I didn’t know her… I didn’t know my daughter…” Sony Pictures has released a second official trailer for the thriller film Searching, from writer/director Aneesh Chaganty, making his feature directorial debut. The first trailer was a good sell, this one is made more for younger audiences who like cheesy horror. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival under the title Search, and was one of my favorite films of the festival. Searching is an emotional dramatic thriller told entirely through computer screens. John Cho stars as the father of a young Korean-American teenager who goes missing, following as he searches through her computer and phone in an attempt to find her. The small cast includes Debra Messing, Michele La, and Joseph Lee. This new trailer seems to be a response to the trailer for Unfriended: Dark Web, playing up the horror with some digital distortion gimmicks (don’t worry, it doesn’t do this in the film). See below. Here’s the second …

“One shot is what it’s all about… Deer has to be taken with one shot.” Studiocanal UK has debuted a new trailer for the 40th anniversary 4K re-release of the acclaimed film The Deer Hunter, from writer/director Michael Cimino. Originally released in late 1978/early 1979, the critically acclaimed film went on to win five Oscars including Best Picture. The 3 hour film is a drama about the Vietnam War and the toll it takes on good men. Starring Robert De Niro, John Savage, and Christopher Walken as men from a small town in Pennsylvania who volunteer to serve in Vietnam, unaware of the horrors that await. When they return, PTSD takes it grip as they struggle to get back to normal, damaged from the experience. The film is being re-released in cinemas for one day in the UK, but no word on US showings yet. For now, check out the trailer. Here’s the new 4K restoration re-release trailer for Michael Cimino’s …

“For Team Israel, it’s a chance for the underdog to get a crack at the big dog.” We are proud to exclusively debut the official trailer for an award-winning documentary titled Heading Home: The Tale of Team Israel, made by filmmakers Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger. This uplifting, moving, intimate sports documentary tells the inspiring story of a team of nice Jewish baseball players who take on the world. Some of them are actual players from the MLB who join the national team to compete. After years of defeat, Team Israel is finally ranked among the world’s best in 2017, eligible to compete in the prestigious international tournament – the World Baseball Classic. The film won Best Documentary at a few Jewish Film Festivals this year, and is ready for release this August. My favorite part about their team is the “Mensch on the Bench” mascot, and the final bit from the end of this trailer. Perfect …

“Why are you here… after all this time? Why now?” Netflix has released the first official trailer for an indie dramedy titled Like Father, the directorial debut of Lauren Miller Rogen, a talented comedian / actress / writer who is also Seth Rogen’s wife. The film is about a workaholic woman who, after being dumped at the altar, decides to take her honeymoon cruise with her estranged father who she hasn’t seen since she was a kid. Of course, there’s funny things that happen but then they realize how similar they are. Kristen Bell stars as Rachel, with Kelsey Grammer as her father, with a cast including Seth Rogen, Brittany Ross, Zach Appelman, Danielle Davenport, Lenny Jacobson, Wynter Kullman, and Brian McCarthy. This looks funny and heartfelt, with a good message I’m sure, I’m curious to watch sometime this summer. Here’s the first official trailer for Lauren Miller’s Like Father, direct from Netflix’s YouTube: When workaholic young executive Rachel (Kristen Bell), is …

“If a man looks too good to be true – he is!!” Paramount has debuted the first official trailer for Nobody’s Fool, the new comedy from filmmaker Tyler Perry, something a bit different than his Madea films in the past. This wacky movie stars two of the most popular actresses – Tiffany Haddish and Tika Sumpter – as sisters. Tanya (Haddish) is finally released from prison and reunites with her sister Danica (Sumpter), who discovers she is in an online relationship with a man that may be “catfishing” her. The full ensemble cast includes Whoopi Goldberg, Missi Pyle, Courtney Henggeler, Omari Hardwick, Amber Riley, and Crystal Lee Brown. This looks about is absurd and slightly funny as you might expect from Tyler Perry, not really my cup of tea. Maybe some of you will be into seeing this just because of Haddish? Check this out. Here’s the first official trailer for Tyler Perry’s Nobody’s Fool, direct from Paramount’s YouTube: Trying to get …

“You’re a clever girl – that’s the most wonderful thing in all creation.” Sony Australia has debuted the first official trailer for an ensemble comedy titled Ladies in Black, adapted from the popular book The Women in Black by Madeleine St John. The film is the latest directed by award-winning Aussie filmmaker Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy, Double Jeopardy, Mao’s Last Dancer), and it’s an “alluring and tender-hearted comedy drama about the lives of a group of department store employees in 1959 Sydney.” The film’s cast includes Julia Ormond, Angourie Rice, Rachael Taylor, Ryan Corr, Vincent Perez, Alison McGirr, Susie Porter, Shane Jacobson, and Noni Hazlehurst. This looks like a spunky, entertaining film about Australian women learning to stand up for themselves and be strong & independent. Watch out. Here’s the first Australian trailer (+ poster) for Bruce Beresford’s Ladies in Black, direct from YouTube: Ladies in Black is set in Sydney, Australia in the summer of 1959, against the backdrop of …

“I never should’ve stayed in that house.” Vertical Entertainment has debuted a new official US trailer for the supernatural horror thriller Incident in a Ghostland, the latest from French director Pascal Laugier (Martyrs, The Tall Man). We posted an international trailer for this earlier in the year. The story is about a house where a woman had to fend off intruders to save her daughters. Years later, the two of them grow up with completely different personalities, still traumatized by the events. When they all reunite at the house once again, strange events began to occur. The horror film stars Crystal Reed, Taylor Hickson, Rob Archer, Emilia Jones, Adam Hurtig, Anastasia Phillips, Mylène Farmer, and Alicia Johnston. Unfortunately this still looks as mediocre as it did in the first trailer, only for the most diehard horror fans. Here’s the official US trailer (+ poster) for Pascal Laugier’s Incident in a Ghostland, from YouTube: You can still watch the original trailer for Pascal …
