Natalie Portman ventures into uncharted territory in the new trailer for ‘Annihilation’

Published

on

Paramount Pictures has released a new trailer for writer-director Alex Garland’s Annihilation, the follow-up to the filmmaker’s Oscar-winning directorial debut, Ex Machina. The upcoming sci-fi film features an impressive ensemble cast which includes Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny, and Oscar Isaac.

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy,  Annihilation follows a biologist (Portman) who embarks on an expedition into a surreal universe with four other women to search for clues surrounding the mysterious illness that has been inflicted upon her husband (Isaac).

“It’s actually more surreal than the novel,” VanderMeer told The Watch earlier this year. “There are a couple places where I was like, ‘I might need an anchor here.’ The ending is so mind-blowing and in some ways different from the book that it seems to be the kind of ending that, like 2001 or something like that, people will be talking about around the water cooler for years… Visually, it’s amazing. I must say that and that’s all I probably should say.”

Paramount will be handling distribution duties on Annihilation in the United States, Canada, and China, while Netflix will handle international distribution in other territories. In other words, the film will still open in theaters on February 23, 2018, but will be available on the streaming service about 17 days later.

Alicia Vikander fights to survive a deadly mission in an action-packed new trailer for ‘Tomb Raider’

Published

on

It’s no secret that the marketing campaign for the upcoming Tomb Raider adaptation starring Alicia Vikander got off to a very poor start. In addition to releasing a pretty underwhelming first trailer that failed to capture the excitement of many, including fans of the video games series, Warner Bros. also issued a rather poorly Photoshopped one-sheet for the film that people had a field day with over on Twitter.

That being said, the latest trailer for Tomb Raider dropped this morning and, while I’m still not entirely sold on this movie quite yet, our latest look at this action-packed adventure from director Roar Uthaug is a huge improvement over the first trailer and delivers plenty of great new footage.

As per the film’s official synopsis, Tomb Raider follows Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who suddenly vanishes while exploring a fabled tomb on a mythical island somewhere off the coast of Japan. Refusing to believe that her father is dead, Lara leaves everything she knows behind and sets out on a mission to find out the truth behind her father’s disappearance once and for all.

Tomb Raider also stars Dominic West, Walton Gogins, Daniel Wu, and Kristin Scott Thomas, and will open in theaters in just two months time on March 16. You can check out the newly released trailer above.

After teasing fans on social media yesterday, 20th Century Fox has finally released a new trailer for Greg Berlanti’s coming-of-age film Love, Simon starring Nick Robinson, Katherine Langford, Alexandra Shipp, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Miles Heizer, Logan Miller, Keiynan Lonsdale, Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, and Tony Hale.

For Simon, resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying, and life-changing.

Between films such as Edge of Seventeen, Lady Bird, and Call Me by Your Name, it’s been a phenomenal past couple of years for coming-of-age movies and Love, Simon appears to want to continue that magnificent trend; it looks funny, heartwarming, and so very enjoyable in almost every aspect.

Joaquin Phoenix tracks down a missing girl in a gripping new trailer for ‘You Were Never Really Here’

Published

on

Lynne Ramsay’s gripping new thriller You Were Never Really Here starring Joaquin Phoenix is undoubtedly one of my most anticipated movies of the year. The film world premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival last May where it won Best Actor and Best Screenplay and will make its U.S. debut next week at Sundance.

Described as a “powerful assault of a film,” You Were Never Really Here follows Joe, a traumatized veteran, unafraid of violence, who tracks down missing girls for a living. When one of his jobs begin to spin out of control, Joe’s nightmares overtake him as a conspiracy is uncovered leading to what may be his death trip—or his awakening.

Not only does You Were Never Really Here look stunning from a visual standpoint, but the performances look absolutely incredible, especially from Phoenix, who seems to be lost in the role of Joe, while Jonny Greenwood’s ambient score is simply mesmerizing. If you’re seeing this film at Sundance next week, consider me jealous.

You Were Never Really Here is scheduled to be released in U.S. theaters on April 6. Be sure to check out the new international trailer in the embedded player above, and read some of the wonderful things critics are saying about the film here.
