New Trailer for That Controversial Bruce Lee Film ‘Birth of the Dragon’

Birth of the Dragon Trailer

"Sooner or later, gunna have to fight him." BH Tilt has just unveiled a brand new trailer for Birth of the Dragon, a fictional feature based on the true story of the legendary Bruce Lee. This film is controversial because it's not an accurate depiction of the events or the history of Bruce Lee, and features a white main character despite focusing on Lee. Starring Philip Ng as a cocky, young Bruce Lee living in San Francisco training and teaching his kung fu skills. He is confronted by a legendary Shaolin monk named Wong Jack Man, played by Yu Xia, who is upset that he is sullying the art and spirituality of kung fu. The main white guy is played by Billy Magnussen, with a cast including Jin Xing, Jingjing Qu, and Simon Yin. The publicity is keen to point out that this is a brand new cut of the film, not the version shown at TIFF last year. ›››

Official Trailer for Comedy ‘The Layover’ Directed by William H. Macy

The Layover Trailer

"I want him!" "Not this time…" Vertical Entertainment and DirecTV have released the first foul-mouthed trailer for a comedy titled The Layover, directed by actor-turned-filmmaker William H. Macy (his second film after Rudderless a few years back). The spunky comedy stars Alexandra Daddario and Kate Upton as best friends who get stuck in St. Louis on an extended layover. Along the way they meet and fall for the same guy, played by Matt Barr, and end up battling for his affection. The full cast includes Matt Jones, Molly Shannon, Kal Penn, and Rob Corddry. This looks mildly entertaining, but also very cliche and generic, but I'm not surprised. Don't really think this is for me, but I'm sure some people will love it. Enjoy. ›››

New Trailer for Destin Cretton’s ‘The Glass Castle’ Starring Brie Larson

The Glass Castle Trailer

"I can't let you cling to the side your whole life just ’cause you're scared." Lionsgate has released a second trailer for the film The Glass Castle, the latest feature from filmmaker Destin Daniel Cretton (I Am Not a Hipster, Short Term 12). From the looks of it, this is going to be something very special. Brie Larson plays Jeannette Walls, a woman who grew up in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with an eccentric mother and alcoholic father. The full cast features Naomi Watts & Woody Harrelson (as her mother & father, respectively), Sarah Snook, Max Greenfield, Brigette Lundy-Paine, and others. This looks like it has such strong emotions and will be very powerful and heart-wrenching to watch. See below. ›››
