John Cusack is an Angry Sniper in Action Thriller 'Blood Money' Trailer

Blood Money Trailer

"What did you do to get this money?" Saban Films has launched the trailer for a new action thriller titled Blood Money, from horror filmmaker Lucky McKee. This film seems like it's straight out of the 90s, with John Cusack in a lead role as a white collar criminal who tries to retrieve his cash, but three kids pick it up first. Cusack gets all crazy on them, bringing a sniper rifle along to make sure he gets his money. The rest of the cast includes Ellar Coltrane, Willa Fitzgerald, Jacob Artist, and Ned Bellamy. This looks pretty awful, without much going on besides petty greed. Might be okay for a late night watch, but I'm not too sure.

Third Trailer for Animated Movie 'Ferdinand' with Voice of John Cena

Ferdinand Trailer

"Don't judge a bull by its cover." 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have debuted yet another trailer, the third official trailer, for the animated film Ferdinand, about a bull raised by a family in Spain and taken to be a fighter, who really prefers to smell flowers instead of battle against matadors. This trailer is all about the cast and the announcement that Nick Jonas has recorded a song for the film. John Cena voices Ferdinand the bull, which might be one of the best voice choices all year. The rest of the voice cast includes Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez, Daveed Diggs, Gabriel Iglesias, Bobby Cannavale, David Tennant, Anthony Anderson, Flula Borg, Jerrod Carmichael, Boris Kodjoe, and Raúl Esparza. This does look quite charming and most of all, it seems to have an important message we can all learn from.

Two More Trailers for Jake Kasdan's 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle'

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Trailer

"We have to work together!" Sony has revealed two more official trailers (US + international) for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which hits theaters in December just in time for the holidays. This new brand big screen take on the Jumanji board game stars Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan as glorified "avatar" versions of high school kids sucked into this game world. It also stars Nick Jonas, Alex Wolff, Rhys Darby, Madison Iseman, and Bobby Cannavale. As we all know, the twist in this is that it's now a video game not a board game, and the "adult" characters are just different versions of the teenagers stuck inside the game. This trailer is definitely action-packed and wild, but I have a feeling this is going to be way too cheesy to really enjoy it. As usual, the international trailer is much better.

Netflix's Full-Length Trailer for Baumbach's 'The Meyerowitz Stories'

The Meyerowitz Stories Trailer

"It'll be nice to spend time with dad, I didn't get a lot of time with him growing up." Netflix has debuted the full-length trailer for Noah Baumbach's The Meyerowitz Stories (New & Selected), which arrives on Netflix next month. This is Baumbach's new familial drama that first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. This quaint indie dramedy is about three siblings who reconnect and come together in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father. Dustin Hoffman plays the father, a sculptor who has always been the dominant member of the family. Emma Thompson stars as his wife, and the siblings are played by Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel. I did not care for this film when I saw it in Cannes, but others may still enjoy it. This trailer plays up some of the more absurd, comedic moments.

Official Full-Length Trailer for Todd Haynes' Delightful 'Wonderstruck'

Wonderstruck Trailer

"Why did my father have this book?" Amazon + Roadside have debuted the new full-length official trailer for Todd Haynes' charming film Wonderstruck, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The film tells two different stories set 50 years apart, following two kids who venture into New York City. One of them is a deaf girl who escapes home and tries to find her mom. The other is a young deaf boy who escapes home in search of a room at the Natural History Museum. Millicent Simmonds stars as Rose, and Oakes Fegley (from Pete's Dragon) stars as Ben. The cast includes Julianne Moore, Cory Michael Smith, James Urbaniak, Damian Young, and Lauren Ridloff. I recommend this film for the concept alone (two intertwining stories of deaf kids) but also because it is lovely. It's not my favorite, but it's pretty good.

New Official Trailer for Long Lost Cooking Mockumentary 'Cook Off!'

Cook Off! Trailer

"Use more marshmallows!" Lionsgate has unveiled a new trailer for a mockumentary comedy titled Cook Off!, making fun of cooking competitions. This was actually filmed over a decade ago, and it first premiered at the US Comedy Arts Festival Aspen back in 2007. Somehow it has been sitting on a shelf all these years, and yet is just now getting an official release thanks to Lionsgate. The huge ensemble cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Ben Falcone, Niecy Nash, Jennifer Cox, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Louie Anderson, Gary Anthony Williams, Jennifer Elise Cox, Cathryn Michon, Markie Post, and Sam Pancake. This definitely does have a Christopher Guest-esque vibe, with a cast of eccentric goofballs all makin' food under one roof. I'm just curious as to why it took so long to get a release.

First Trailer for New 'Tomb Raider' with Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft

Tomb Raider Movie Trailer

"Her legend begins." It's time to finally meet the new Lara Croft. Warner Bros has debuted the first official trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie, based on the popular video game series about adventurer Lara Croft. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft this time around, playing a young woman living in London who decides to travel to a mysterious island in an attempt to figure out what happened to her eccentric adventurer father. As expected, there is a tomb she'll raid and lots of other crazy things in this, including various video game-esque action scenes like swinging spiked logs and more. The full cast includes Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Alexandre Willaume. This seems like a nice follow up to WB's Wonder Woman, about another ass-kicking independent woman. I'm hoping it isn't as bad as pretty much every other video game movie, because the curse still isn't broken.

Watch: Zack Snyder's Gritty New iPhone Short Film 'Snow Steam Iron'

Snow Steam Iron Short Film

Get a load of this! While taking a break from Hollywood, Zack Snyder made a short film entirely on an iPhone for the social media app Vero. Titled Snow Steam Iron, the short film is set on the gritty streets of New York and stars Samantha Jo as a woman who decides to fight back. Vero explains: "Looking for an opportunity to change the alchemy, to challenge himself with new variables, to literally look at filmmaking through a new lens, Zack envisioned his next project." This actually turned out pretty dang cool, especially for a film made entirely on an iPhone and without any dialogue. Then again, we shouldn't expect anything less from Zack Snyder. The full short is exclusive to watch only on Vero for the moment, but it is available.

One More Trailer for Alien Invasion Thriller 'Revolt' Starring Lee Pace

Revolt Sci-Fi Trailer

"The machines are hunting everyone down. Machines programmed to kill." Vertical Entertainment has unveiled a new official US trailer for the sci-fi indie film titled Revolt, from director Joe Miale making his feature debut. The film stars Lee Pace as a US soldier in Africa attempting to fight back against a brutal alien invasion. This kind of seems a bit like a mash-up between District 9 and Transformers, with robot-like alien creatures taking over. Also starring Bérénice Marlohe (who was also in the sci-fi Kill Switch, as well as Skyfall and Song to Song), plus Jason Flemyng, Alan Santini, and Tom Fairfoot. I'm actually very curious about this, might be pretty cool. I dig the machines' designs, different than most other alien designs.

Second Trailer for Romance 'Breathe' with Andrew Garfield & Claire Foy

Breathe Trailer

"No one's ever believed its possible to live as you do." Bleecker Street has revealed another new trailer for the film Breathe, the directorial debut of Andy Serkis, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last week. Serkis' tells the story of Robin Cavendish, played by Andrew Garfield, and his wife Diana, played by Claire Foy. Robin was paralyzed at the age of 28 by polio, but their love kept him alive for years, fighting for the lives of other polio patients and continuing to travel and raise their son. Also starring Diana Rigg, Tom Hollander, and Hugh Bonneville. This film will also be the opener at the London Film Festival, so it will be getting a grand introduction in the UK after first showing in Toronto. This film looks like a very heartwarming, passionate story about overcoming hardship with the help of love. Definitely worth a watch.
