Official Trailer for 'McLaren' Doc About Racing Legend Bruce McLaren

McLaren Documentary Trailer

"They were Kiwis taking on the world." FilmBuff has revealed the trailer for a racing documentary titled McLaren, telling the story of Bruce McLaren, the New Zealander who started the McLaren Motor Racing team. You may recognize the name, especially if you love cars, as Bruce McLaren is the father & founder of McLaren Automotive, which manufactures some of the fastest cars on the planet. McLaren died at age 32 in 1970 when his car crashed while racing in England. Despite this tragic early death, he left quite a legacy, and achieved a great amount of success. "A man who showed the world that a man of humble beginnings could take on the elite of motor racing and win." There have been some excellent racing movies recently (Senna and Rush come to mind) and this looks like it's another that will appeal to all audiences, not just racing fans.

Watch: Metal Detector Finds Something Big in Animated Short 'Martin'

Martin Short Film

Always inspiring to watch an entertaining short film made by one person as a "labour of love." This short film premiered a few months ago, but we just came across it recently and felt it was worth sharing. Martin is a short animated film designed & directed by Sholto Crow of "Crowmotion". It tells the story of a young scavenger using a metal detector to hunt for objects on the beach in his small coastal town. One day he finds something big and, well, you just have to watch below to see what he discovers. I admire the animation style in this, it's quite unique, and the way this ends should make you laugh and leave you with a smile. Have fun.

New UK Trailer for George Clooney's 'Suburbicon' Starring Matt Damon

Suburbicon Trailer

"Right now your path looks pretty bleak." Entertainment One in the UK has debuted an official UK trailer for Suburbicon, a new dark comedy written and directed by George Clooney. This film is premiering at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals in just a few weeks, so expect to hear lots of buzz. Set in 1959 in a "peaceful, idyllic suburban community" that is rattled by a home invasion, a death starts to reveal the town's "dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence". Starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, Megan Ferguson, Jack Conley, and Oscar Isaac. This looks so damn good, I'm already sold and already ready to just watch and laugh and enjoy it. This is a good trailer but it spoils the amusing reveal at the end with Damon riding away, oh well, no worries. "Welcome to Suburbicon! A town of wonder and excitement."

Review: 'Hitman's Bodyguard' is an Entertaining Mess of Buddy Action

The Hitman's Bodyguard Review

There is as much bad as there is good in The Hitman's Bodyguard, the latest in the recent slew of buddy action-comedies that have been barreling down the pike. Thank you for that, Shane Black. While that appreciation is genuine, there is a certain lull this particular sub-genre has quickly slid into, and there are definitely prerequisites an entry into this sub-genre appear to have to meet to satisfy some audiences. The Hitman's Bodyguard has no problem meeting all those prerequisites, but, while the buddies at play here (Samuel L. Jackson as the hitman and Ryan Reynolds as the bodyguard) seem to be having a blast with their back-and-forth verbal spars, the overall cheapness and familiarity of the film leaves plenty of room for improvement. At the very least, rest assured that Jackson drops a plethora of "motherfuckers".

If You Want It: Tyler Perry's 'Boo 2! A Madea Halloween' Official Trailer

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween

"People got dead up there for real!" Oh boy, here we go again… Lionsgate has revealed the trailer for the newest Tyler Perry joint, another Madea comedy (sequel) titled Boo 2! A Madea Halloween. This is, obviously enough, a sequel to the goofy Halloween comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween release just last year. Tyler Perry not only returns to write and direct, but also star again as Madea (and Joe and Brian). The cast includes Cassi Davis, Patrice Lovely, Chandra Currelley, Yousef Erakat, Diamond White, Lexy Panterra, and Andre Hall. The plot involves Madea, Bam & Hattie going to a haunted campground where they find monsters, goblins, and the boogeyman. As much as I have absolutely no interest in these movies, I have to give them props on the amusing poster design. Other than that, if you want to watch then go ahead.

Trailer for Indie Comedy 'Literally, Right Before Aaron' with Justin Long

Literally, Right Before Aaron Trailer

"He's actually a really cool guy." Screen Media Films has unveiled the first official trailer for an enjoyable indie comedy titled Literally, Right Before Aaron, telling the story of a heartbroken man invited to the wedding of his most recent ex-girlfriend. Justin Long stars in this fairly typical story about a guy dealing with a tough breakup and accepting the reality of letting go, while embracing the comedy in romance. The ensemble cast includes Cobie Smulders as his ex, as well as Ryan Hansen, John Cho, Kristen Schaal, Dana Delany, Peter Gallagher, Lea Thompson, and Luis Guzmán. This premiered at the Tribeca and Nantucket Film Festivals and seems like a painfully funny, awkwardly charming little comedy. Take a look.

Josh Hartnett in Official Trailer for '6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain'

6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain Trailer

"What do you want from me?!" Momentum Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for a survival movie called 6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain, telling the faith-based story of a former hockey player and adrenaline junkie who gets stranded in the mountains. He must "battle his own personal demons" in order to survive. Josh Hartnett stars as as Eric LeMarque, who ends up lost while snowboarding in the High Sierras when a massive winter storm hits. Also starring Mira Sorvino, Sarah Dumont, Kale Culley, and Jason Cottle. Despite this being billed as "one of the most amazing tales of survival" it looks pretty much like every other tale of snowy survival. Right down to the wolves. And that song makes my eyes roll big time.

Official Trailer for Ai Weiwei's New Film 'Human Flow' About Humanity

Human Flow Trailer

"When There Is Nowhere to Go, Nowhere is Home." Amazon Studios and Participant Media have released an official trailer for Human Flow, a new film directed by iconic Chinese artist/filmmaker Ai Weiwei. This will be premiering at the Venice Film Festival first before hitting theaters in October. This eye-opening, breathtaking, heart-wrenching documentary looks at the humanitarian crisis of our time. "Over 65 million people around the world have been forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change and war in the greatest human displacement since World War II." Human Flow is made up of remarkable footage showing this mass migration and how people move around this planet. This looks incredible, I'm very excited to see the footage and experience it as presented by Ai Weiwei. I'm sure it's going to be an emotional experience.

Review: 'Brigsby Bear' is a True Love Letter to Fandom & Filmmaking

Brigsby Bear Review

The beloved sketch comedy group Good Neighbor was originally formed in 2007 by Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Nick Rutherford, and Dave McCary. The comedians racked up millions of YouTube hits with their offbeat and uncomfortable sketch videos, including such notable standouts as "My Mom's a MILF", "Is My Roommate Gay?", "420 Disaster," and "Unbelievable Dinner," based on Steven Spielberg's Hook. In 2013, Mooney and Bennett joined Saturday Night Live as featured players along with McCary, who stayed behind the camera as a segment director. Now Mooney and McCary are transitioning to the big screen with the indie comedy Brigsby Bear, a feature-length narrative about friendship, family, and nostalgia that deftly blends humor and heart to create something that is both odd and oddly affectionate.

John Woo's Newest Action Movie 'Manhunt' Gets a 90s-Esque Trailer

Manhunt Trailer

He's back!! Media Asia has debuted a new international trailer for John Woo's latest action film Manhunt, being described as a return to his action roots in the vein of his 1989 classic The Killer. Let's hope that's all true, because we haven't really seen a great action movie from John Woo in a while. Manhunt is about an innocent prosecutor who sets out on a mission to clear his name after being framed for crimes he didn't commit. Zhang Hanyu stars as the prosecutor, and the cast includes Masaharu Fukuyama, Qi Wei, and Ha Ji Won. This is actually a remake of the 1976 Japanese film Kimi yo Fundo no Kawa o Watare. I'll be seeing this at the Venice Film Festival when it premieres there in a few weeks. The footage in this trailer looks very weird like it's straight from the 90s, but here's to hoping Woo is totally back and better than ever.
