Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

«I hope you’re ready for what comes next…» 20th Century Fox has finally released the first trailer for the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle, once again directed by Matthew Vaughn, bringing back Taron Egerton as the British superspy known as «Eggsy». We’ve been waiting for this, and it’s finally here and it actually looks fun. Colin Firth also returns, with Mark Strong as Merlin, and a cast featuring Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges, Halle Berry, Julianne Moore, Vinnie Jones, as well as Hanna Alström, and Sophie Cookson. This seems to be a riff on America, as the Kingsman guys end up working with an American agency. I’m digging all the action so far, and I’m wondering if this could be a surprise hit. ›››

First Trailer for ‘The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography’ Doc

The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman's Portrait Photography

«Dorfman is uniquely fascinating… spending the entirety of a film with her is a rare pleasure.» Neon has released an official trailer for the documentary The B-Side: Elsa Dorfman’s Portrait Photography, the latest from veteran documentarian Errol Morris. The feature doc profiles the life of Elsa Dorfman, a «nice Jewish girl» photographer who fell in love with large scale portrait photography in the 1980s. She used to photograph all kinds of different people, including famous rock stars and poets, using a Polaroid Land 20×24 camera. Morris’ film is a trip into her workplace (and life) to examine what it was like to work with this kind of «analog» medium. The title of «The B-Side» is a reference to the way Dorfman always took two pictures of her clients and kept the rejected one, which she refers to as the «B-Side». This looks wonderful. ›››

First Official Trailer for Brett Haley’s ‘The Hero’ Featuring Sam Elliott

The Hero Trailer

«You can’t just decide to fix things!» The Orchard has unveiled the first official trailer for an indie dramedy called The Hero, from writer/director Brett Haley. The film stars Sam Elliott as «The Hero», basically he’s playing himself, an «aging Western icon with a golden voice, but his best performances are decades behind him.» He tries to deal with his own demons while falling for a young stand up comedian, played by Laura Prepon. The cast also includes Krysten Ritter, Nick Offerman and Katharine Ross. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and also played at SXSW to mostly positive reviews. This is actually a damn good film, with some great performances from Elliott, Prepon, and Offerman. As much as this seems like a comedy, there’s a humble and emotional side to this that makes it even better than it seems at first glance. ›››

Menashe Trailer

«Think about what’s best for your son.» A24 has debuted an official trailer for the acclaimed indie drama titled Menashe, a very unique film set entirely within Brooklyn’s ultra-orthodox Jewish community. The film tells the story of a widowed father of a young son, struggling to make ends meet and stay in his kid’s life. His Rabbi has required that his son live with his strict uncle’s family, but Menashe is given one more week to prove he’s a capable parent. Starring Menashe Lustig as Menashe, and Ruben Nyborg. This was filmed in secret in the neighborhood, and is one of the few films that is entirely in Yiddish, preserving the integrity of the culture it’s portraying. This is a good gem to seek out, and has a tender, charming side to it. ›››

First Trailer for Trapped Inside a Shark Cage Movie ’47 Meters Down’

47 Meters Down Trailer

«How deep are we?» «47 meters.» «I’m so scared!» Another scary shark horror movie? Why not! A trailer has debuted online for a film titled 47 Meters Down, about two sisters who are trapped inside a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean. This seems just a little bit freakier than The Shallows, considering they’re trapped underwater, inside a shark cage, with only so much oxygen left before they run out. Mandy Moore and Claire Holt star, with a cast including Matthew Modine, Yani Gellman, and Santiago Segura. This looks exactly like you would expect — there’s no surprises here. I’m curious if they’ll keep the «47 Meters» title for America, since most aren’t familiar with meters, but it works (and FYI, 47 meters = 154 feet). Enjoy. ›››

The Little Hours Trailer

«The girls can be tough. I’m not going to lie, they can be very tough.» Gunpowder & Sky has revealed the first red band trailer for a wacky comedy titled The Little Hours, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci star as three dirty, horny nuns in this comedy. Everything seems fine at their convent until Father Tommasso brings on new hired hand, a virile young servant forced into hiding by his angry lord. John C. Reilly and Dave Franco also star, along with Nick Offerman, Fred Armisen, Molly Shannon, Jemima Kirke, Paul Reiser, Adam Pally. This looks totally nuts. And I love that quote from Catholic League in the trailer: «It is trash. Pure trash.» ›››
