Writer/director Jeff Nichols’ (Take Shelter) Mud has an official trailer for you to watch below and it’s pretty great. MUD is an adventure about two boys, Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and his friend Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), who find a man named Mud (Matthew McConnaughey) hiding out on an island in the Mississippi.
Mud describes fantastic scenarios—he killed a man in Texas and vengeful bounty hunters are coming to get him. He says he is planning to meet and escape with the love of his life, Juniper (Reese Witherspoon), who is waiting for him in town. Skeptical but intrigued, Ellis and Neckbone agree to help him. It isn’t long until Mud’s visions come true and their small town is besieged by a beautiful girl with a line of bounty hunters in tow.
Mud opens in limited release on April 26th.
The only thing I’ve heard about The Paperboy is that it’s from Lee Daniel’s, he made Precious which I enjoyed. Also, that there is a scene in which Nicole Kidman urinates on Zac Efron; you can’t pay for that kind of publicity. I’m sure the urinating has more context to it, but it isn’t revealed in this trailer, instead we see Zac Efron dancing in tighty whities, you’re welcome ladies.
The movie stars Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron as two brothers who team-up to investigate the potential wrongful conviction of a death-row inmate John Cusack. I had to look that up after, as this trailer is a mess. The cast is great and it shows, but something tells me the botch trailer represents bigger problems with the movie.
The Paperboy opens on October 5th.
Here is a red band trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike. Channing Tatum shows off his ass and there are lot of girls screaming all over the place. The movie opens June 29th and stars Tatum, Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Olivia Munn, Cody Horn, Matt Bomer, Riley Keough, Joe Mangianello, Kevin Nash (yes, the wrestler), Adam Rodriguez and Gabriel Iglesias.
Magic Mike is said to be based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a male stripper. The film follows Tatum as he takes a young dancer under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.
Watch the NSFW trailer below, here’s a link to the green trailer.
Matthew McConaughe plays a killer, is that a first? If Kate Hudson isn’t around, that even better. You can watch the trailer for Killer Joe below, in the NC-17-rated film Emile Hirsch and his father Thomas Haden Church hire cop/hitman Matthew McConaughey to murder their mother in order to get her insurance policy.
Killer Joe was directed by Academy Award winner William Friedkin (The Exorcist, The French Connection) and also stars Juno Temple and Gina Gershon.

The Expendables 2 Teaser Starring Terry Crews
Here is the first trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike which is said to be based on Channing Tatum’s early days as a male stripper. The film follows Tatum as he takes a young dancer under his wing and schools him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women, and making easy money.
This could have easily been a movie with a female lead or some 3D dance movie, but that story has been done many times. It seems like an odd choice for a director of Soderbergh’s caliber, but that should actually help the predictable story gain some ground. It could be fun in a “well at least it’s better than Burlesque” kind of way.
Watch the trailer below, Magic Mike opens June 29th.
Richard Linklater’s (Dazed and Confused) new dark comedy Bernie has a trailer below and it’s delightfully weird. Jack Black is pretty great in most things he does, but it’s Matthew McConaughey here with his shirt on finally that had me laughing. He needs to do more comedy, as does Shirley MacLaine who looks to have a few crabby scenes reminding me of Anne Ramsey.
Based on a true story out of Carthage, TX, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede (Black) was one of the town’s most beloved residents. So it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent (MacLaine), an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Bernie frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. Marjorie quickly became fully dependant on Bernie and his generosity and Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands. The people of Carthage were shocked when it was reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and Bernie Tiede was being charged with the murder.
Watch the trailer below, Bernie opens April 27th.
