Official Trailer for Wacky Documentary Film ‘Don’t Be a Dick About It’

Don't Be a Dick About It Trailer

"Stop it!" "I'm not doing anything!" Ohhhhhh, brothers. Oscilliscope Labs has debuted an official US trailer for an indie documentary titled Don't Be a Dick About It, which originally premiered at the IDFA Film Festival in Amsterdam last year. It also stopped by numerous other doc festivals last fall, including DocPoint Helsinki and Docs Against Gravity. Ben Mullinkosson's doc film is a hilarious and beautiful portrait of two brothers growing up in Maryland. He follows the brothers – Peter and Matthew – around for one summer capturing the nuances of pissing each other off. A film about brotherly love, and brotherly hate. Anyone with siblings definitely knows these mixed feelings. As odd as this doc sounds, it's been picking up rave reviews from multiple critics - calling it "an absolute charmer from start to finish." You just need to see for yourself. ›››

Beanpole Trailer

"It will heal me." "It will heal us." Kino Lorber has debuted a full-length official US trailer for the acclaimed Russian drama Beanpole, which first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.

It's described as a "richly burnished, occasionally harrowing rendering of the persistent scars of war." Starring Viktoria Miroshnichenko and Vasilisa Perelygina as the two main women.

Tucker Albrizzi & Danny Trejo in Coming-of-Age Comedy ‘Bully’ Trailer

Bully Trailer

"It gets easier… But it ain't ever gunna be easy." An official trailer has arrived online for an indie coming-of-age comedy titled Bully, the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Santino Campanelli. This premiered at the Dances With Films Festival last year, but hasn't played anywhere else yet - and it's pretty clear why as there's not much here. Bully is about a heavy-set high school kid named Jimmy who is constantly tormented by the resident school bully and his cronies. But after he meets a boxer, he starts training and learns how to fight back. Truly the best way to fight bullies is to literally fight them! Right?! Starring Tucker Albrizzi as Jimmy, along with Danny Trejo, Ron Canada, Vincent Pastore, Jack DiFalco, Elanna White, and Jay Lee. Despite the good intentions, it looks pretty bad and impressively derivative. Check it out anyway. ›››

Official Trailer for Dark Mystery ‘The Host’ Starring Maryam Hassouni

The Host Trailer

"Beware - even those who look innocent can be dangerous." Vertical Entertainment has unveiled an official trailer for an indie crime mystery thriller titled The Host, the feature directorial debut of TV director Andy Newbery. There have been at least two other major films with the name The Host, including Bong Joon-ho's monster movie, and also the sci-fi flick from Andrew Niccol. Can we stop using this especially bland title, please? Newbery's The Host is about a London banker who risks everything taking on a job carrying a briefcase to Amsterdam. "But all is not as it seems in a city veiled by dark secrets. Fuelled by power players, drugs, seduction and violence Robert awaits his turn in a deadly game of choice and consequence." Starring Maryam Hassouni, Mike Beckingham, Dougie Poynter, Nigel Barber, & Suan-Li Ong. Watch out. ›››
