Official Full-Length Trailer for 'Super Troopers 2' Pits USA vs Canada

Super Troopers 2 Trailer

"They've been waiting for a second chance… waiting for their country to need them again…" Damn Yanks! Crazy Canadians! Fox Searchlight has debuted the new full-length trailer for the long-awaited sequel Super Troopers 2, hitting theaters on April 20th this spring, because of course it opens on 4/20. Makes total sense. This stoner comedy sequels picks up where the first film (released back in 2001) left off and follows the Super Troopers who are tasked with establishing a Highway Patrol station in a border area between the US and Canada. Pretty much everyone is back: Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, Erik Stolhanske, Brian Cox, Lynda Carter, and Marisa Coughlan. The newcomers this time include Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rob Lowe, Tyler Labine, Will Sasso, and Hayes MacArthur. As expected, this looks totally nuts and ridiculous, but still hilarious. Light up that blunt, kick back, and enjoy.

First Fun Trailer for Inspiring Doc 'Science Fair' Premiering at Sundance

Science Fair Trailer

"I know how to communicate ideas - that's really why I win." A trailer has debuted for a documentary titled Science Fair, premiering at the Sundance Film Festival - which kicks off today in Park City, Utah. As the title indicates, this is a doc about going to the big "science fair" - specifically the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (or Intel ISEF). The film profiles nine different high school students from all around the world who must "navigate rivalries, setbacks, and hormones on their quest to win the international science fair. Only one can be named 'Best in Fair.'" This looks like a very fun, inspiring, enjoyable look at the world of science fairs. It reminds me of October Sky, one of my favorite films involving a science fair. I'm most interested to see the kids from foreign countries who make it in, seems like that's the bigger challenge.

Second Trailer for 'Tomb Raider' Starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft

Tomb Raider Movie

"What are you doing here, Lara?" Warner Bros has released the second trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie, based on the popular video game series about adventurer Lara Croft. This trailer is a bit better than the first one, thankfully, so fire it up and take a look. Swedish actress Alicia Vikander stars as Lara Croft, 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. The cast includes Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, Dominic West, Daniel Wu, and Alexandre Willaume. This new trailer actually promises an entertaining movie, with some badass action and thrilling mystery. Yes, it's a big Hollywood movie but at least it doesn't seem like it's going to be a disaster. I'm honestly really looking forward to this now. Dive in.

Odeya Rush & Michael Caine in First Trailer for Comedy 'Dear Dictator'

Dear Dictator Trailer

"Sometimes I feel like you're the only one who gets me." Cinedigm has released the trailer for an amusing indie comedy titled Dear Dictator, which has a goofy, perhaps ridiculous premise. Michael Caine plays a British-Caribbean dictator who is forced to leave his island nation. He decides to move in and hide out with his "pen pal" (is this the 90s?), a young rebellious teenage girl, as played by Odeya Rush (from The Giver, Goosebumps, Almost Friends, Lady Bird). Somehow they make this work in a weird way, and of course he helps teach her how to "start a revolution and overthrow the 'mean girls' in her high school." It's not as bad as it sounds, but it also doesn't look that good either. But, Michael Caine! He's always great, right? The cast includes Jason Biggs, Katie Holmes, Seth Green, and Jordyn Cavros. Check it out if you're intrigued.

Haunted by a Vengeful Vietnamese Ghost in 'The Housemaid' Trailer

The Housemaid Trailer

"This has happened before… History is repeating itself." IFC Midnight has released an official trailer for a Vietnamese horror thriller titled The Housemaid, from director Derek Nguyen. Not to be confused with the Korean romantic thriller The Housemaid, this The Housemaid is about a ghost who haunts a mansion in Vietnam in the 1950s where a housemaid works. Kate Nhung stars as Linh, and she works at a crumbling rubber plantation run by a French officer. There's some eroticism, and similarities to the other Housemaid (which is a remake anyway) but this looks much scarier. The film's cast includes Jean-Michel Richaud, Rosie Fellner, Kim Xuan, and Svitlana Kovalenko. Aside from being a supernatural horror, this film also "confronts the dark shadows of Vietnam's colonial past." This trailer definitely is freaky, so watch out.

First Trailer for 'Ghostland' Horror from French Director Pascal Laugier

Ghostland Trailer

"Are you going to let me die alone?" The official French trailer has debuted for the latest horror film from French director Pascal Laugier (Martyrs), titled Ghostland or also Incident in a Ghost Land. The story is about a house where a woman had to fend off intruders to save her daughters. Years later, the two of them grow up with completely different personalities, still traumatized by the events. When they all reunite at the house once again, strange events began to occur. I like the tagline on the second poster: "you really thought you've been scared before?" Oh damn. The horror film stars Crystal Reed, Taylor Hickson, Rob Archer, Emilia Jones, Adam Hurtig, Anastasia Phillips, Mylène Farmer, and Alicia Johnston. The film opens first in France, then should hit US theaters sometime in the spring. Take a peek if you dare.

New International Trailer for RV Roadtrip Comedy 'The Leisure Seeker'

The Leisure Seeker Trailer

"We've had a lot of wonderful trips in this ole rust bucket." A new official international trailer from the UK has debuted for the indie roadtrip comedy The Leisure Seeker. This film actually premiered at the Venice and Toronto Film Festivals last fall, mostly because it's directed by a veteran Italian filmmaker named Paolo Virzì. The Leisure Seeker stars two great actors - Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland - who go on an unforgettable journey in the faithful old RV they call "The Leisure Seeker" as a runaway couple. The film's cast includes Christian McKay, Janel Moloney, and Kirsty Mitchell. The emotional side of the story is that Sutherland's character is losing his memory as they get older, and this may be the last vacation they'll remember together. It received mostly bad reviews at festivals, but looks like it might appeal to a few folks.

Alice Foulcher Stars in Official Trailer for Indie Comedy 'That's Not Me'

That's Not Me

"You think I'm talented, don't you?" The Orchard has debuted a trailer for the indie comedy That's Not Me, a quirk story about a struggling woman from Australia who has to take an "underwhelming" job at a local cinema after failing to get any acting gigs. Aussie comedian/actress Alice Foulcher stars as Polly, and the cast includes Isabel Lucas, Richard Davies, Belinda Misevski, Rowan Davie, and Andrew S. Gilbert. Here's a more specific synopsis for the film: "Constantly mistaken for her famous identical twin, an aspiring actress decides to use her sister's celebrity to her own advantage. What begins harmlessly enough - free clothes, casual sex - ends with disastrous consequences for them both" because her twin sister makes it famous before she does. This played at a bunch of festivals last year and seems like an amusing little indie.

Excellent Trailer for 'The Cage Fighter' Docu-Drama About Joe Carman

The Cage Fighter Trailer

"The only time I feel on top of the world is when I'm fighting." IFC Films has debuted the official trailer for a documentary titled The Cage Fighter, which premiered at the True/False Film Festival last year. This docu-drama from director Jeff Unay plays like a feature film with a narrative following the real-life story of a fighter named Joe Carman. Joe is a blue-collar family man who breaks the promise he made years ago to never fight again. Now forty years old, with a wife and four children who need him, he risks everything – his marriage, his family, his health – to go back into the fighting cage and come to terms with his past. Carman stars, and the film's "cast" (if you can call it that) includes Norinda Reed, Clayton Hoy, Callie Carman, Delanee Carman, Kira Carman, Mia Carman, and Vernon Beach. This is a helluva trailer, damn. A promising look at a powerful, personal film about the demons that drive a man to push himself to the limit.

Daniel Radcliffe Plays a Pilot in First Official Trailer for 'Beast of Burden'

Beast of Burden Trailer

"This isn't the plan! They re-routed me…" Momentum has unveiled a trailer for an indie drug thriller titled Beast of Burden, from Swedish filmmaker Jesper Ganslandt. The film stars Daniel Radcliffe as a pilot who must deliver an illegal cargo of cocaine across the US-Mexico border for his final run as a smuggler to save his wife. Most of the film takes place in the cockpit following Radcliffe as he flies his Cessna across the border. The cast includes Grace Gummer, Pablo Schreiber and Renée Willett. This seems like it has some intense action scenes, with drones, helicopters, and guns. Crazy. Worth a look because it is so unique.

Full Trailer for Harlem Crime Saga 'Honor Up' Directed by Damon Dash

Honor Up Trailer

"We don't do this for our first name, we do this for our last name!" Honor up! Lionsgate has released the official trailer for a crime saga film titled Honor Up, the latest film from writer/director Damon Dash (of Paper Soldiers, Death of a Dynasty), which is executive produced by Kanye West. Damon Dash also stars as OG, a drug lord's lieutenant from Harlem who is trying to maintain the code of honor — protect the family — within his unruly crew after a Harlem shootout. The full cast includes Stacey Dash, Cameron Giles, John Ancrum, Daniel Jenkins, Smoke DZA, Murda Mook, and Blackface. This looks like a gritty crime drama about staying true to your family, protecting your friends, and never ever snitchin'. See below.

Teaser Trailer for Korean Superpowers Action Comedy 'Psychokinesis'

Psychokinesis Trailer

"Suddenly… you have a supernatural power!" An international trailer has arrived online for a new Korean action film titled Psychokinesis, the latest feature from the director of the acclaimed zombie feature Train to Busan. Sang-ho Yeon directs this new dark comedy film about a father who ties to save his daughter after discovering he has superpowers. The cast includes Seung-ryong Ryu as the father, and Eun-kyung Shim as his daughter Roo-mi, along with Yu-mi Jung, Do-yoon Kim, and Yeong-gi Jeong. This is just the first trailer, but it does have some cool footage in it. I quite like the mix of comedy and action, seems like it's going to be very fun to watch. Hopefully it arrives over here sooner than later, as I want to see this already.
