Another New IMAX Trailer for James Gray’s Space Adventure ‘Ad Astra’

Ad Astra IMAX Trailer

"What did he find out there in the abyss…?" IMAX has debuted an official "IMAX trailer" for James Gray's space adventure sci-fi film Ad Astra, which is premiering at the Venice Film Festival next week. We've seen two stunning official trailers for Ad Astra so far [here and here] and a featurette, but they're really trying to play up the "IMAX experience" angle this time. Brad Pitt stars as an astronaut who travels to the outer edges of the solar system to find his missing father. He uncovers extraordinary secrets which challenge the nature of human existence. Also starring Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Donald Sutherland, and Jamie Kennedy. Featuring a new score by Max Richter. This trailer only has a tiny bit of extra footage, which is fine - because I want to see the rest of it on a big screen for the very first time. Get ready for lift off. ›››

Eliza Scanlen in First Trailer for ‘Babyteeth’ Film Premiering in Venice

Babyteeth Trailer

"It's not reasonable!" "This is her first love…" eOne has revealed the first official trailer for an indie drama titled Babyteeth, marking the feature directorial debut of up-and-coming filmmaker Shannon Murphy. The film is set to premiere at the Venice Film Festival starting this month, playing in competition as one of only three films directed by women in the main line-up at the festival this year. This Australian bittersweet comedy, self-adapted from the play of the same name by Rita Kalnejais, follows a couple who discover their seriously ill teenage daughter has fallen in love with a kooky small time drug dealer. Eliza Scanlen, who also appears in Little Women, stars with a small cast including Toby Wallace, Emily Barclay, Eugene Gilfedder, Essie Davis, and Ben Mendelsohn. This film is one of my most anticipated to see in Venice, and so far so good. Looks promising with plenty to admire in the unique story and all the deft performances. ›››

First Trailer for Action Movie ‘Rogue Warfare’ Featuring Stephen Lang

Rogue Warfare Trailer

"We don't know what we're walking into!" Saban Films has debuted an official trailer for an action movie titled Rogue Warfare, made by stuntman / filmmaker Mike Gunther. This is supposedly part of a trilogy of movies called the Rogue Warfare trilogy, but seems to be just a solo offering so far. The synopsis is rather vague - it only states that Rogue Warfare is about a group of skilled military elite who join forces to fight an underground terrorist network. This stars Will Yun Lee, Jermaine Love, Rory Markham, Bertrand-Xavier Corbi, Katie Keene, Fernando Chien, Gina Decesare, Michael Blalock, Mike McKee, Essam Ferris, with Chris Mulkey and Stephen Lang. This really looks like one big action extravaganza with literally no plot, since these kind of jingoistic movies only really need guns and explosions, and no plot. ›››

Katherine Hughes in Trailer for Bob Shaye’s Music Thriller ‘Ambition’

Ambition Trailer

"You need to pull it together." Shout Studios has unveiled a trailer for the "gripping, suspenseful thriller" titled Ambition, the latest film directed by producer Bob Shaye. In Ambition, Katherine Hughes stars as a young aspiring violinist preparing for a competition. She's incredibly confidant and gets wrapped up in a frightening trap that she has to find her way out of. It raises the question: If an insane person is telling a story, is it real? That sounds like quite an intriguing introduction to this film. The full cast includes Sonoya Mizuno, Giles Matthey, Kyanna Simone, Jared Bankens, Deneen Tyler, Dylan McNamara, and Jordan Salmon, with a special appearance by Lin Shaye. Ambition is said to "create a world where desire and revenge converge into a questionable reality." Seems a bit like Black Swan, but with even more horror. ›››

Angel Has Fallen Review

Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) has seen more action in his career as a Secret Service Agent than most superheroes see in a lifetime, but Angel Has Fallen pits the rugged hero against a new threat to the president he is sworn to protect: himself.

In the second sequel to 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, Banning is dealing with a mild addiction to painkillers stemming from a series of concussions he’s suffered on the job throughout his career, keeping his physical struggles a secret from his wife Leah (Piper Perabo, taking over for Radha Mitchell) and his superiors, President Trumbull (Morgan Freeman) and Secret Service Director David Gentry (Lance Reddick).
