"There's never been anything like it in history." The Orchard has debuted an official trailer for the doc Meeting Gorbachev, opening in US theaters in a few months. This premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year, and also played at the Telluride and Luxembourg City Film Festivals. Meeting Gorbachev is the latest documentary from Werner Herzog, co-directed by André Singer, and it seems to be a provocative, eye-opening look at an iconic politician. Herzog sat down for a total of three interviews over six months with Mikhail Gorbachev, the eighth and final President of the Soviet Union. Herzog's candid conversations with the former Soviet head of state form the backbone of this illuminating film, which tries to show that America and Russia are much similar than we all think. Herzog tells Indiewire in an interview: "I wish I can be part of creating a climate that would appeal to the best moments between America and Russia." Perhaps he can. ›››

"Our stuff was so entangled, that I ended up not knowing what was mine and what was his." The first official trailer has arrived for an indie drama titled End of the Century, made by Argentinian filmmaker Lucio Castro. This is premiering at the prestigious New Directors / New Films festival in NYC later this month, where they highlight the first films from some of the finest up-and-coming filmmakers. End of the Century is about an Argentinian man from New York and a Spanish man from Berlin who meet in Barcelona and, after spending a day together, they realize that they have already met twenty years ago. Described as a film that turns "a love story into a cosmic voyage." Starring Juan Barberini and Ramon Pujol, with Mía Maestro. This looks like a compelling, thought-provoking film marking the debut of a talented filmmaker. ›››
"She's seen so much death here…" Scream Factory has debuted an official trailer for the indie horror thriller I'll Take Your Dead, the latest film from Canadian horror filmmaker Chad Archibald (The Drownsman, Ejecta, Heretics). This originally premiered at two Canadian film festivals last year - Calgary and Toronto After Dark - and is getting a limited release in May. The concept for I'll Take Your Dead is pretty twisted - a guy who cleans up dead bodies at a farm house gets one dumped there. But this woman isn't actually dead, and so patches and locks her up until he can figure out what to do. The two begin to develop a very unusual respect for each other, but the killers come back to finish the job. Aidan Devine stars, with Ava Preston, Jess Salgueiro, Brandon McKnight, and Ari Millen. Looks like this has some creepy twists and turns. ›››
