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.

The new ‘Venom’ trailer isn’t very good but at least they show us the symbiote this time

Published

on

As you may recall, the first teaser trailer we received for Venom a couple months back caused quite a stir online due to the fact that the titular anti-hero was nowhere to be found in the trailer. Last night, though, after Tom Hardy unveiled the newest trailer for Venom at CinemaCon, the studio dropped the full trailer online and, yes, they actually show the symbiote in the damned thing.

Hardy stars here as investigative reporter Eddie Brock who is on the trail of Dr. Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), head of the Life Foundation, an organization which houses a number of alien symbiotes that they use to perform dangerous scientific experiments on humans. However, it isn’t long before Brock is infected with a symbiote that turns him into a very grotesque-looking version of Spider-Man.

I don’t know about you, but I think this trailer looks dumb as hell and makes Venom look like it has the potential to be one of the absolute worst movies of the year. To be fair, a movie like Venom is something that is incredibly hard to sell, so I’ll give Sony the benefit of the doubt and hope the movie itself will be much better than their marketing campaign makes it look.

Ruben Fleischer directed Venom from a script written by Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinker. The upcoming film also stars Michelle Williams, Scott Haze, Jenny Slate, Reid Scott, Woody Harrelson, Sope Aluko, and Scott Deckert, and will open in theaters on October 5, 2018.

‘Deadpool 2’ final trailer further introduces the members of the X-Force, pokes fun at the DCEU

Published

With a little less than a month to go until Deadpool 2 opens in theaters next month, 20th Century Fox has released the final trailer for the upcoming sequel starring Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth and it reveals a bunch of new footage of the X-Force in action.

While the previously trailer only very briefly introduced us to the members of the X-Force team, our latest look at Deadpool 2 gives us a much closer look at the supporting cast, which includes Zazie Beetz’s Domino and Terry Crews’ Bedlam. We also see a pretty brutal interaction between Deadpool and Cable (Josh Brolin) that manages to squeeze in a line poking fun at the DC Extended Universe.

I still can’t say I’m 100% sold on Deadpool 2 as I’m still a bit turned off by the previous trailers we’ve gotten in recent months, but I will say that I’m staying cautiously optimistic for the sequel. The final trailer is definitely a pretty big improvement over the others.

For Deadpool 2, John Wick co-director David Leitch is behind the camera directing from a script written by returning screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The film also stars T.J. Miller, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Stefan Kapicic, and will hit theaters on May 18.

‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ final trailer offers our best look yet at the action-packed sequel

Published

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never been a huge fan of the Jurassic Park franchise. The movies have never really piqued my interested and my eyes pretty much rolled to the back of my head when I first heard about the Jurassic World trilogy a while back.

That being said, while I don’t necessarily care much for Colin Trevorrow’s first installment in the Jurassic World trilogy, nor am I looking to the next one he is co-writing and directing, I must say that J.A. Bayona’s highly anticipated Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom looks like an absolute blast. This is the type of Jurassic Park movie I’ve been waiting for.

Per the film’s official synopsis, when Isla Nublar’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their mission uncovers a conspiracy that could return the entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

As someone who is a massive fan of J.A. Bayona’s 2016 fantasy drama A Monster Calls, which didn’t receive nearly as much attention around awards season as it should have, I’m pretty excited to see what the filmmaker as in store for us with his latest effort. Jurassic World also stars Jeff Goldblum, BD Wong, James Cromwell, Ted Lavine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, and will hit theaters on June 22.
