Scott Adkins & Dolph Lundgren in Action Thriller ‘Castle Falls’ Trailer

Castle Falls Trailer

"Follow the guard, find the money." Shout Factory has released a trailer for Castle Falls, an action thriller directed by Swedish action star Dolph Lundgren. This is dropping on VOD in December just in time for the holidays! And remarkably it's not Lundgren's first film he has directed - he has a few others under his belt, including Dolph Lundgren Is the Killing Machine most recently in 2010. Castle Falls is about rival gangs trying to find millions of dollars hidden inside Castle Heights Hospital, which is filled with dynamite and scheduled to be demolished, but first they have to deal with the janitor who found the loot first. It just so happens that this guy is an ex-fighter. "The clock is ticking. Who will seize the cash… and will they get out alive?" Scott Adkins stars with Dolph Lundgren, plus Dave Halls, Kim DeLonghi, Kevin Wayne, Scott Hunter, Robert Berlin, and Bill Billions. Surprise, surprise - this film does not look good. At all. ›››

Is She Possessed By a Demon? Nun Horror Film ‘Agnes’ Official Trailer

Agnes Trailer

"You don't have the luxury to be frightened!" Magnet Releasing has unveiled an official trailer for a nun horror film titled Agnes, from filmmaker Mickey Reece. This initially premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, and also recently stopped by Fantastic Fest and the Sitges Film Festival this fall. Rumors of demonic possession at a religious convent prompts a church investigation into the strange goings-on among its nuns. A disaffected priest and his neophyte are confronted with temptation, bloodshed and a crisis of faith. That description sounds a lot like Paul Verhoeven's Benedetta (which I also highly recommend) - but this is something else entirely! Agnes stars Hayley McFarland as the titular nun "Agnes", with Molly C. Quinn, Sean Gunn, Chris Sullivan, Rachel True, Chris Browning, and Jake Horowitz. This looks rather cliche and obvious, especially following the exquisite Saint Maud. But it still might be worth a watch. ›››

Official Trailer for ‘A Man Named Scott’ Doc About Musician Kid Cudi

A Man Named Scott Trailer

"Everything I make has to help people in some way." Amazon Prime Video has unveiled an official trailer for a documentary film titled A Man Named Scott, a reference to the actual name of renowned musician "Kid Cudi". His real name is Scott Mescudi, and after launching his first mixtape in 2008, he has become known as a renowned artist, musician and creator. In early 2011, Cudi announced he was making a mixtape titled "A Man Named Scott", but it was never finished or released. Now we have this documentary! The film follows the music career of Kid Cudi from the release of "Day 'N Night" in 2008 through present day music. Friends and producers illustrate his story in conjunction with concert footage and never before seen behind-the-scenes. This looks like a endearing look at his life and what makes him so unique, with some creative flourishes as well. I'm also curious to hear his thoughts on the pressures of fame, always interesting to hear. ›››

Unwelcome Trailer

"They'll need feeding… They'll be hungry." Well Go USA has revealed an official trailer for creature feature horror film Unwelcome, the latest from Irish filmmaker Jon Wright (of Grabbers and Robot Overlords previously previously). The film spins a tale of what happens to people who come in contact with the violent, bloodthirsty goblins known originally in Irish folklore as the fear dearg or "far darrig," now often referred to worldwide as the "Redcaps." Londoners Maya and Jamie escape their urban nightmare to the tranquility of rural Ireland only to discover malevolent, murderous goblins lurking in the gnarled, ancient wood at the foot of their new garden. Those nasty lil creatures. Unwelcome stars Hannah John-Kamen and Douglas Booth, with Niamh Cusack, Colm Meaney, Kristian Nairn, and Jamie-Lee O'Donnell. This look frighteningly good! Not only a bunch of scary little creatures, but the look and feel of it is top notch as well. ›››

Official Trailer for ‘Procession’ Doc on Catholic Priests & Sexual Abuse

Procession Trailer

"I need to conquer these fears." Netflix has released an official trailer for the acclaimed documentary film titled Procession, the latest from filmmaker Robert Greene (Actress, Kate Plays Christine, Bisbee '17). This originally premiered at the 2021 Telluride Film Festival, and has played at a number of other festivals this fall before debuting on Netflix this November. A group of survivors of sexual abuse by Catholic priests battles for justice and collaborates to create fictional scenes depicting rituals of power in the church as part of a "drama therapy-inspired experiment designed to collectively work through their trauma." As one of the men says, "Spotlight was about trying to get in from the outside. In our film, we're trying to get out." Made in consultation with Joe Eldred, Mike Foreman, Ed Gavagan, Dan Laurine, Michael Sandridge, and Tom Viviano. This looks like an extraordinarily moving doc with the goal of teaching about the process of healing. ›››

Three Young Activists Fight On in ‘Dear Future Children’ Doc Trailer

Dear Future Children Trailer

"A film about the next generation, made by the next generation." Dartmouth Films has unveiled an official trailer for the documentary film Dear Future Children, which premiered at the CPH:DOX and Hot Docs Film Festivals earlier this year. It's opening in the UK this fall, but still doesn't have any US release set yet. Strangely, because this film looks great! Made by a young German filmmaker, Dear Future Children follows three young female activists in Hong Kong, Chile, Uganda as they cope with the immense personal impacts of their activism. Rayan protests for social justice in Chile, Pepper fights for democracy in Hong Kong and Hilda battles the devastating consequences of climate change in Uganda. The film asks them "why they keep fighting" but the answer is obvious; "Fear of failure and not achieving change drives them, more than their fear of violence or death. By facing fear, they transform it into something else entirely." Hell yes! Now this is inspiring, telling stories about fighting for real change no matter what will happen because it's so necessary. ›››

Official US Trailer for ‘France’ Starring Léa Seydoux as a TV Journalist

France Trailer

"Why do you need to be in the spotlight?" Kino Lorber has unveiled an official US trailer for French dark comedy France, which first premiered at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. It also went on to play at the Toronto and New York Film Festivals, and is opening in theaters in the US starting in December. Léa Seydoux brilliantly holds the center of Bruno Dumont's unexpected, unsettling new film, which starts out as a satire of contemporary news media before steadily spiraling out into something richer and darker. A celebrity journalist, juggling her busy career & personal life, has her life over-turned by a freak car accident. The film is described as a "tragicomedy" with plenty of drama, following Seydoux as TV journalist "France de Meurs" who deals with a series of self-reckonings, as well as a strange romance that messes her up. The cast includes Blanche Gardin, Benjamin Biolay, Emanuele Arioli, Juliane Köhler, Gaëtan Amiel, and Jawad Zemmar. This film didn't get the best reviews out of Cannes, but still looks rather intriguing. ›››

Sandra Bullock is Out of Prison in Netflix’s ‘The Unforgivable’ Trailer

The Unforgivable Trailer

"You're life starts here, now. Not twenty years ago." Netflix has unveiled a powerful official trailer for The Unforgivable, a new drama based on the TV mini-series "Unforgiven" from the UK. A woman is released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime and re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, her only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind. The film stars Sandra Bullock in the lead role as Ruth Slater, with a full cast including Vincent D'Onofrio, Jon Bernthal, Richard Thomas, Linda Emond, Aisling Franciosi, Rob Morgan, and Viola Davis. It's directed by German filmmaker Nora Fingscheidt, following up her hit film System Crasher from a few years ago. This kind of film can only work with someone extremely talented in the lead role, there's so many emotions and feelings hidden deep within her. This looks remarkably good so far, and the trailer ramps up as it goes on until the emotions burst out. ›››

Bruce Campbell & Devon Sawa in Horror Comedy ‘Black Friday’ Trailer

Black Friday Trailer

"There is something wrong with the shoppers!" Screen Media Films has released the official trailer for a horror comedy titled Black Friday, set at a big toy store on Thanksgiving night just before the opening of Black Friday at midnight. And guess who's back at S-Mart! I mean, at "We Love Toys" - Bruce Campbell! Sporting a mighty fine gray mustache in this film (which makes him look like John Cleese in a few of the shots). Story manager Jonathan and his longtime employee Ken soon find them themselves battling against hordes of holiday shoppers that have been turned into monstrous creatures taken over by a parasite hellbent on a murderous rampage. The comedy stars Devon Sawa, Ivana Baquero, Ryan Lee, Stephen Peck, Michael Jai White, plus the one-and-only Bruce Campbell. This isn't the most original concept, but it does look quite fun anyway. The zombie people look mean, the kills look ridiculous and amusing. Shop safe. ›››
