Pixar’s ‘Coco’ takes you on a vivid journey through the Land of the Dead in this gorgeous new trailer

Published

on

The gorgeous new trailer for Pixar’s Coco was released this morning and does an outstanding job of further introducing us to this animated love letter to Mexico where an aspiring musician goes on an extraordinary journey through the Land of the Dead in search of the person he looks up to the most.

Miguel is a boy who, despite his family’s generations-old ban on music, does nothing but dream about becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. In a desperate attempt to prove his talent, he accidentally ventures into the Land of the Dead. However, in order to leave the newly discovered world, he may need to give up his love for music forever.

Lee Unkrich, perhaps best known for his work on Toy Story 3, directed Coco with the assistance of co-director Adrian Molina, who served as a story artist on Monsters University, so we know this film is in nothing but the best of hands. Gorgeous visuals, a touching story, and plenty of laughs are sure to make Pixar’s latest release one to remember, especially with a cast that includes the likes of Gael García Bernal and Benjamin Bratt.

While there seem to be a number of striking similarities to The Book of Life, another animated film which bore similar themes to those of Coco, we can’t help but think Unkrich and Molina have something much more special tucked up their sleeves with this one. I suppose we’ll find out when Coco opens in theaters on November 22, 2017.

Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams solve a murder mystery in the first ‘Game Night’ trailer

Published

on

The first trailer for New Line’s action-comedy Game Night starring Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams has arrived and, while the trailer may have shown one too many spoilers over the course of its two-minute and thirty-second runtime, this looks like one stupid comedy we can get behind.

Game Night follows Max and Annie, whose weekly couples game night gets taken to a whole new level when Max’s brother Brooks arranges a murder mystery party, complete with fake thugs and faux federal agents. When Brooks gets kidnapped, though, the players think it’s all part of the game, but they soon realize that this “game” is not what it seems to be.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who co-wrote Spider-Man: Homecoming, directed Game Night from a script written by Mark Perez. The film features a star-studded cast that also includes Billy Magnussen, Sharon Hogan, Lamorne Morris, Kylie Bunbury, Jesse Plemons, Danny Huston, Michael C. Hall, and Kyle Chandler.

We’ll find out if Bateman and McAdams are able to crack the case when Game Night opens in theaters on March 2, 2018.

Published

on

20th Century Fox has released the highly anticipated first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming drama The Post. The film follows the unlikely partnership between The Washington Post’s Katharine Graham (Meryl Streep) and Ben Bradlee (Tom Hanks) as they race to expose a massive cover-up of government secrets that spanned three decades and four U.S. presidents.

According to a recent report from IndieWire, Spielberg recently finished putting the final touches on The Post and will complete the final sound mix with composer John Williams’ score next week. The studio is expected to begin screening the film for press no later than the end of the month in order to meet voting deadlines for many of the critics’ groups.

Written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, the star-studded cast of The Post also features Bradley Whitford, Carrie Coon, Tracy Letts, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bob Odenkirk, Alison Brie, Zach Woods, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, and Jesse Plemons. Spielberg produced the film along with Amy Pascal and Kristie Macosko Krieger.

The Post will open in theaters on December 22, 2017. What did you think of the first trailer for Spielberg’s latest film? Will it truly dominate the forthcoming awards season? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment down below.

Annapurna mounts awards campaign for Kathryn Bigelow’s ‘Detroit’ with powerful new trailer

Published

on

Kathryn Bigelow’s dramatic-thriller Detroit flew under the radar when it first opened in theaters back in August despite being a timely look at the growing political and social unrest that led to the 1967 Detroit riots. However, in hopes of having better luck the second time around, Annapurna Pictures is looking to give Detroit a limited theatrical re-release that will begin on December 1.

According to Deadline, the Detroit re-release will take place in 20-25 screens in select markets such as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Springs, Maui, and Aspen. Given how weirdly unpredictable this year’s awards season seems, a “For Your Consideration” campaign for Detroit may very well work to help build voter enthusiasm around the film.

“This movie creates empathy that can spark dialogue that will, hopefully, lead to healing and change. This country needs that now more than ever,” Annapurna Pictures president Mark Weinstock told Deadline in a statement. “The events in Charlottesville, Virginia, happened after our movie came out. The world has changed since August; the mood is different. The film is not only important – it’s even more relevant. People really consider this movie an emotional experience.”

On Saturday, the studio also debuted a powerful new trailer for Detroit and it offers what is perhaps our best look at Bigelow’s new film which stars John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Jon Krasinski, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray, and Kaitlyn Denver. You can check out the trailer above.
