A popular moving coming out of last year’s Toronto Interntional Film Festival was Jodorowsky’s Dune, a documentary that goes behind the scenes of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s adaptation of the Frank Herbert sci-fi novel. The movie manages to celebrate the filmmaker’s imagination and enthusiasm although the film was never made.
Through interviews with legends and luminaries including HR Giger (artist, ALIEN), Gary Kurtz (producer, STAR WARS) and Nicolas Winding Refn (director, DRIVE and ONLY GOD FORGIVES), and an intimate and honest conversation with Jodorowsky filmed over the course of three years, director Pavich’s film – featuring never-before-seen realizations of Jodo’s mind-blowing psychedelic space opera (animated by Emmy Award nominated Syd Garon) – finally unearths the full saga of ‘The Greatest Movie Never Made’.
Jodorowsky’s Dune opens March 21st, watch the trailer below:
We showed you an unofficial trailer last month for David Gordon Green’s new drama, Joe about a relationship that forms between troubled Joe (Nicolas Cage) and an abused teen (Tye Sheridan). There is now an official trailer and release date for the great looking character dram that you can check out below along with the full synopsis. The movie looks great and Cage has never looked better, I can’t wait to check it out.
Joe opens in theaters and on VOD on April 11th, watch the trailer below:
Here is the first trailer for the comedy Tammy starring Melissa McCarthy as a woman who takes a road trip with her grandmother played by the great Susan Sarandon. Luckily her grandmother is diabetic, an alcoholic and foul-mouthed – the ingredients for comedy which we don’t get to see in this trailer, sorry.
McCarthy does her best big girl shtick once again and it’s pretty funny. I’ve come to terms on her (and writers) repetitious need to fall down; if Chris Farley can do it and be a legend there is no reason why McCarthy can’t.
The film also stars Allison Janney, Gary Cole, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd, and Kathy Bates.
Tammy opens July 2nd, the synopsis and trailer are below:
This was meant to be I think; having just watched The Purge for the first time last week and hating it more than any movie I’ve seen in a very long time, I knew I would be the one to post this trailer for the money grabbing sequel.
James DeMonaco’s sequel The Purge: Anarchy keeps the same “plot” device as all crimes are legal on one day of the year, during the annual “Purge”, which preserves peace and prosperity for the other 364 days of the year. The first movie had so many plot holes, bad acting, bad writing, laughable exposition…sigh, I’m still tired. I will give the sequel this, it’s a pretty cool trailer. Then again, the whole idea here is awesome and was wasted once so what do I know anymore.
The Purge: Anarchy opens in theaters on June 20th, watch the trailer below:
After checking out the cool full poster by clicking the banner image above, watch the trailer for Jonathan Glazer’s Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson below. She plays a woman of unknown origins combing the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, they are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again. Sounds like another Friday night right fellas? Ah, jokes and jokes.
The trailer shows some excited critic quotes and shades of Kubrick that are sure to get noticed; it looks like a good one and I can’t wait to see the movie. I haven’t’ seen Scarlett Johansson bring it since Match Point in 2005; it looks like she’s in top form here.
Under the Skin opens in the U.K. on March 14th, in L.A. and New York on April 4th, then a limited release on April 11th. Watch the trailer below:
It’s come to this folks, when the market is saturated with beaver films it’s only a matter of time before they cross over into something really stupid, like zombies. Wait…
This looks to be one of those films that is just so ridiculous and terrible that you can’t help but love it. Stupid teenagers, a cabin in the woods, Eddie, and zombie beavers; what’s not to like? There’s no release date as of yet but…hopefully it’s soon.
Zombeavers is an action-packed horror/comedy in which a group of college kids staying at a riverside cabin are menaced by a swarm of deadly zombie beavers. A weekend of sex and debauchery soon turns gruesome as the beavers close in on the kids. Riding the line between scary, sexy and funny, the kids are soon fighting for their lives in a desperate attempt to fend off the hoard of beavers that attack them in and around their cabin.

Here is a full theatrical trailer director Denis Villeneuve’s (Prisoners) upcoming thriller Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal. In the flick, Gyllenhaal discovers that he has a double, whom he eventually tracks down and engages, resulting in “a complex and dangerous struggle”. Well if they were trying to pull off a haunting and provocative psychosexual thriller, they certainly did it by the looks of things.
The film also stars Melanie Laurent, Sarah Gadon, and Isabella Rossellini. Enemy debuts exclusively on DirecTV February 6th followed by a theatrical release on March 14th.
ENEMY tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who is nearing the end of a relationship with his girlfriend Mary (Laurent). One night, while watching a film, Adam spots a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, an actor living with his pregnant wife Helen (Gadon) and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle.

Here is the first red-band trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s (Ted) latest titled A Million Ways to Die in the West. It’s MacFarlane’s live-action acting debut, and the film also stars Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Neil Patrick Harris, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, and Giovanni Ribisi. It certainly makes you look at the West in a whole new light, it was just awful! Everyone is dying all the time it seems; now that’s funny.
It’s comes off as a live-action Family Guy and a great western action movie too; I’m a little more than curious to see how it all comes together. Share your thoughts below in the comments.
A Million Ways to Die in the West opens May 30th, watch the trailer below:
David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, George Washington) is back with Joe, an adaptation of Larry Brown’s 1991 novel of the same name starring Nicolas Cage. It premiered at the 2013 Venice Film Festival and at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival where it received good reviews and praise for Cage’s performance.
I love character driven movies and this story about the relationship that forms between the troubled Nicolas Cage and an abused teenager Tye Sheridan looks terrific. It’s good to see Cage playing a human being and not a caricature of himself.
Joe currently doesn’t have a North American release date, watch the trailer below:
