Jon Hamm & Lois Smith in Full Trailer for Subtle Sci-Fi 'Marjorie Prime'

Marjorie Prime Trailer

"She's nicer to that thing than she is to me." FilmRise has unveiled an official trailer for the film Marjorie Prime, the latest feature by filmmaker Michael Almereyda, which premiered at Sundance. This subtle sci-fi film is set in the near future in a time where intelligent AI can recreate a perfect holographic version of a deceased person. The story involves a family figuring out what to make of these lifelike recreations of people who aren't around anymore. It's a meditation on "memory and identity, love and loss." Jon Hamm stars, with Geena Davis, Tim Robbins, Stephanie Andujar, Hannah Gross, and Lois Smith as Marjorie. This seems like a cool concept, but unfortunately never lives up to its potential, and it's a very dull film. I saw this at Sundance and wanted to like it, but there's just not much to like about it. But that's only my take.

First Trailer for Joachim Trier's Super Powers Romance Film 'Thelma'

Thelma Trailer

Meet Thelma. An international teaser trailer has debuted online for the new film from Norwegian filmmaker Joachim Trier (of Oslo August 31st, and Louder Than Bombs). Titled Thelma, the film tells the story of a young woman who moves to Oslo and begins to fall in love with another woman, discovering that she also has fantastic, terrifying "super" powers. Starring Eili Harboe as Thelma, as well as Okay Kaya, Ellen Dorrit Petersen, and Henrik Rafaelsen. This will premiere first at the Norwegian International Film Festival in August, and will also play at the Toronto Film Festival this fall. I'm very intrigued, it looks like Trier (and co-writer Eskil Vogt) are trying to mix up the typical "super powers" story and give us something more frightening than exciting. The footage in the second half of this trailer is wild, they have my attention.

Official Trailer for New Horror Film 'Temple' Written by Simon Barrett

Temple Trailer

"This temple, it will make you sick." Screen Media Films has debuted the official trailer for the horror film titled Temple, directed by Michael Barrett, from a screenplay originally written by Simon Barrett (of You're Next, The Guest, Blair Witch) along with fellow horror filmmaker JT Petty. The film is supposedly an homage to Japanese horror as it follows a group of Americans visiting Japan who decide to stay overnight at a haunted temple. Of course, they end up discovering this was a bad idea despite warnings from locals. The film stars Logan Huffman, Brandon Tyler Sklenar, and Natalia Warner. Oddly, screenwriter Simon Barrett has kind of disowned the film, explaining in an article on Medium, "I don’t know what that project is any more than you do." Now that we have some footage does it look any good? Not really. Take a look below.

Chadwick Boseman in Official US Trailer for 'Message from the King'

Message from the King

"Whoever you work for, get him! This was a Message from the King." Don't mess with Chadwick Boseman! Netflix has released a new official US trailer for the hardcore action thriller Message from the King, starring American actor Chadwick Boseman as a mysterious badass who comes to Los Angeles to find his sister. "His pursuit of revenge will lay bare a network of depravity that stretches from the dive-bars of the gang heartlands to the glitz of the Hills." The entire cast includes Teresa Palmer, Luke Evans, Alfred Molina, Tom Felton, and Sibongile Mlambo. This kind of looks like a cool mashup of Taken plus John Wick, with Boseman kicking some serious ass while seeking revenge for his sister. Yes, yet another revenge movie, but at least it's not the typical version of this kind of story. Or maybe it is? I'm still interested. Enjoy.

Now we know the film is returning to theaters again September 1st and if you've never seen on it on the big screen before, now is your chance. Don't miss it! Starring Richard Dreyfuss, Teri Garr, Melinda Dillon, Bob Balaban, François Truffaut, Warren Kemmerling, and Cary Guffey.

James Franco in First Trailer for Bank Robbery Horror Film 'The Vault'

The Vault Trailer

"There's people down here!" What the heck is in the vault? FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for a film called The Vault, a bank robbery heist thriller that actually turns into some kind of weird horror film. The film stars Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood as two estranged sisters who must rob a bank in order to save their brother. But down in the vault, they discover something "truly evil" because "this is no ordinary bank." Uh oh. The cast includes James Franco, Scott Haze, Q'orianka Kilcher, Jeff Gum, and Clifton Collins Jr. This looks pretty weird, and not in a good way. Not sure I've ever heard of a bank heist horror movie before, but perhaps that is why they decided to make this. Check it out if you're curious.

Second Trailer for Crime Film 'Shot Caller' with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

Shot Caller Trailer

"The only thing that matters is you getting home to your family in one piece." Saban Films has debuted another 60-second trailer for the intense crime thriller titled Shot Caller, from writer/director Ric Roman Waugh. Anyone still interested in this? The film tells the story of a family man who gets thrown in prison after a car accident. There he becomes a member of a prison gang in order to survive, and upon release is forced to orchestrate a major crime with a brutal rival gang on the streets of Southern California. Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jacob, with a cast including Lake Bell, Emory Cohen, Jon Bernthal, Jeffrey Donovan, Benjamin Bratt, and Holt McCallany. They're selling the intensity and hard-hitting brutality of this, but I'm not sure it's going to work. For me at least, I don't know what everyone else thinks.

Official Trailer for Mike White's Film 'Brad's Status' Starring Ben Stiller

Brad's Status Trailer

"Sometimes I worry that people think of me as a failure…" Amazon + Annapurna have debuted the official trailer for Mike White's new indie comedy Brad's Status, both written and directed by White. Ben Stiller stars as a father who takes his son, played by Austin Abrams, on a roadtrip around the East Coast to visit colleges. Along the way he reconnects with four old college friends who now seem to be living a much more glamorous, wealthy life compared to his own, and he starts to question his own choices. The cast includes Mike White, Jenna Fischer, Luke Wilson, Jemaine Clement, Michael Sheen, and Shazi Raja. I'm a big fan of Mike White, he's a talented original voice, and this looks amusing and also like the kind of film that will make me question my own life choices *gulp*. Looking forward to catching this film. Take a look.

First Trailer for Survival Revenge Film 'Iceman' About a Neolithic Man

Iceman Trailer

"They found a man, but not his story…" A trailer has debuted for a film titled Iceman, which is premiering at the Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland kicking off this week. This film could be described as an ancient Neolithic man version of The Revenant, about one man who angrily seeks revenge but must first survive the brutal Ötztals Alps. Jürgen Vogel stars as Kelab, with the full cast including Susanne Wuest, André Hennicke, Violetta Schurawlow, Sabin Tambrea, Martin Schneider, and an appearance by Franco Nero. The film uses an early version of the Rhaetic language. This actually looks damn good, with some impressive hair + beards and an intense story set entirely in the wilderness. I'm intrigued enough to watch.

First Teaser Trailer for Creepy Indie Thriller Film 'My Friend Dahmer'

My Friend Dahmer Trailer

"I'm just like anybody else…" FilmRise has debuted an official trailer for a creepy new indie thriller titled My Friend Dahmer, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. The film is based on an acclaimed graphic novel and tells the story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured by police. Before he became that killer, though, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. This is the true, haunting "story before that story" of Dahmer in high school. Ross Lynch plays Dahmer, and the cast includes Anne Heche, Alex Wolff, Dallas Roberts, Vincent Kartheiser, Miles Robbins. This is just a teaser, but but damn does it have some unsettling moments in it, which is the whole point of the film. Lynch's performance looks superb.

Official Trailer for Sundance Doc 'Dolores' About a Legendary Activist

Dolores Movie Trailer

"The FBI knew how dangerous Dolores was." PBS Distribution has unveiled the first official trailer for a documentary titled Dolores, profiling the life and achievements of American activist Dolores Huerta. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and has gone on to play at numerous other festivals including Hot Docs and AFI Docs. Her career as an activist began alongside Cesar Chavez and, at age 87, Huerta still continues to advocate for the common good. Described as an "energetic, sweeping story" about the "iconic labor leader and feminist pioneer", the film explains her influence, impact – and why you probably have never heard her name. This definitely does look like a very energetic, inspiring, and hopeful documentary about one remarkable, driven woman and her innate ability to encourage people to speak up.
