Published

After taking home the Golden Lion for best film in competition at this year’s Venice Film Festival, Fox Searchlight has released a new red-band trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s fairy tale love story The Shape of Water, a film that is already generating plenty of awards buzz as it continues to make the rounds on the festival circuit, having made stops at Telluride and Toronto in recent weeks.

A departure from del Toro’s typical horror fare, the latest trailer for the film further reveals its unique story, which is set against the backdrop of Cold War era America and stars Sally Hawkins as Elisa, a lonely, mute woman who works in a hidden high-security government facility, where she carries out her daily duties in silence and isolation. However, Elisa’s life slowly begins to change when she and her co-worker discover a secret classified experiment; a mysterious underwater creature that has the ability to communicate with her.

With an aesthetic that seems quite reminiscent of BioShockThe Shape of Water seems to be an extremely stylish, magical, and heartfelt, original fairy tale that is destined to be a serious contender in the forthcoming awards season race and may even see Hawkins earn her second Best Actress nomination, while del Toro is destined for a Best Director nod. Fox Searchlight is expected to release the film on December 8, 2017.

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.

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.
