Michael Pena & Dax Shepard in First Official Trailer for ‘CHiPs’ Movie

CHiPs Movie Trailer

“What’s your job?” “Find the dirty cops.” Warner Bros has released the first trailer for a big screen version of the TV show CHiPs, about two California Highway Patrolmen assigned as partners and their crazy antics. Dax Shepard directs himself in the comedy, co-starring Michael Pena, as well as Jessica McNamee, Adam Brody, Ryan Hansen, Vincent D’Onofrio, Justin Chatwin and Kristen Bell. This seems a bit like a mix of Reno 911 and Super Troopers, following in the footsteps of 21 Jump Street rebooting a TV show about cops into an all-out action comedy. This does look fun, and not as bad as I was expecting, but not sure how good it will be. I’m getting tired of all these old TV show updates, but that’s just me. Have a look below. ›››

Watch: Official US Trailer for Wacky Polish Mermaid Film ‘The Lure’

The Lure Trailer

“All you need to do is have fun. The rest is easy.” Janus Films has debuted an official US trailer (red band for mermaid nudity) for a film titled The Lure, a wacky Polish indie about two mermaid girls who join a human band in Warsaw. Part comedy, part cabaret, part horror, part romance, you won’t find anything else like this film out there, though it may be a little too wacky for some. The cast includes Marta Mazurek, Michalina Olszanska, Kinga Preis, Andrzej Konopka, Jakub Gierszal, Zygmunt Malanowicz, Katarzyna Herman and Marcin Kowalczyk. I’ve been hearing about this film for a while, ever since it premiered at Sundance last year, and it’s destined to become a cult classic – catch it in theaters this winter. ›››

Official US Trailer for Hirokazu Kore-eda’s New Film ‘After the Storm’

After the Storm Trailer

“If you’re that interested in being a good father, why didn’t you try harder before?” Film Movement has debuted an official US trailer for the latest film by acclaimed Japanese filmmaker Hirokazu Kore-eda, which first premiered at the Cannes, Toronto and London Film Festivals last year. Titled After the Storm, the familial drama is about an estranged father who attempts to reenter the life of his young son, with the moment to reconnect arriving with a typhoon. The cast includes Hiroshi Abe as Ryota, as well as Taiyo Yoshizawa, Kirin Kiki, Yoko Make, and Lily Frankie. One review from Cannes last year says that even fans of Kore-eda “might be taken aback by the supreme subtlety of his latest, achingly beautiful ode to the quiet complexities of family life.” It looks like another honest, heartfelt Kore-eda film about being a parent. ›››

First Official Trailer for HBO Documentary ‘Becoming Warren Buffett’

Becoming Warren Buffett

“I think sometimes geniuses are by default lonely and isolated.” HBO has debuted an official trailer for the documentary Becoming Warren Buffett, telling the life story of billionaire Warren Buffett, owner of Berkshire Hathaway, who’s famous for being one of the wealthiest people alive. “With unprecedented access to Buffett’s day-to-day personal life, the film tells the improbable story of how an ambitious, humble, numbers-obsessed boy from Nebraska—who still lives in Omaha—became one of the richest, most-respected men in the world.” I’m curious about this, but as always I wonder if the filmmakers are too close to Buffett, telling his story in a glamorized way and never lifting up the rug to see what might be hiding underneath. ›››

Official Trailer for Jack Fessenden’s ‘Stray Bullets’ Crime Thriller Film

Stray Bullets Trailer

“My understanding is we’ve got a bit of a situation…” A trailer has debuted for a film titled Stray Bullets, from young filmmaker Jack Fessenden, son of Larry Fessenden. Not to be confused with the comic book series Stray Bullets, this crime thriller is about two teenaged boys who end up in a fight against a hitman while being held hostage by three criminals they discover hiding out in their father’s old mobile home. Jack Fessenden stars along with Asa Spurlock, including James Le Gros, John Speredakos, and Kevin Corrigan, with an appearance by Larry Fessenden. This looks solid, better than expected for a first film. ›››
