The Beard Is Strong With This Trailer: The Revenant

the-beard-is-strong-with-this-trailer-the-revenant

Have you heard of Hugh Glass? You probably won’t forget his name after you watch this trailer for The Revenant.

Glass, a 19th century American frontiersman, is best known for surviving for months on his own after he was attacked by a bear and the other members of his expedition buried him alive and left him for dead. His unbelievable story has been the subject of a couple of books as well as the 1971 film Man in the Wilderness starring Richard Harris. Now Birdman director Alejandro González Iñárritu has adapted Michael Punke’s 2003 novel about Hugh Glass, The Revenant, into a film of the same name, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy.

Secret, Sinister, Shaken But Not Stirred: James Bond SPECTRE Trailer

secret-sinister-shaken-but-not-stirred-james-bond-spectre-trailer

Skyfall was in my Top Ten Films of 2012 and it’s also one of my favorite James Bond films. After Casino Royale, I was convinced that Daniel Craig is the best James Bond we’ve seen to date and although many hated Quantum of Solace (except me), Skyfall furthered that conviction. Like George Lazenby before him, Craig brings an emotional depth to Bond, one that the cinematic franchise has always been lacking.

Since Skyfall was such a massive critical and commercial success (it was the highest grossing film for Sony to date, even earning more than The Dark Knight Rises, which came out the same year), it seems like good sense to bring director Sam Mendes and screenwriters Neal Purvis, Robert Wade, and John Logan back for SPECTRE.

Horror Anthology Tales Of Halloween Looks Like A Scary Good Time

horror-anthology-tales-of-halloween

Horror anthologies are a hot property these days, with the V/H/S and The ABCs of Death franchises getting a lot of acclaim. Halloween horror anthology movies, however, are few and far between, with the exception of 2007’s wonderful Trick ‘r Treat. This Halloween, a new horror anthology will slash its way into cinemas: Tales Of Halloween.

Tales Of Halloween boasts ten films from 11 directors, and the talent behind this anthology is impressive. Adam Gierasch (Big Ass Spider!) plays a Trick; Neil Marshall (The Descent) brings Bad Seed to the table; Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate) gives us Grimm Grinning Ghosts; Paul Solet (Grace) tells the story of The Weak and the Wicked; Mike Mendez (The Gravedancers) tackles Friday The 31st; Ryan Schifrin, who wrote Abominable, delivers The Ransom of Rusty Rex; Andrew Kasch and John Skipp declare that This Means War; Darren Lynn Bousman (Repo! The Genetic Opera) unleashes The Night Billy Raised Hell; Dave Parker (Coldwater) has a Sweet Tooth; and Lucky McKee (The Woman) rings the bell with Ding Dong.

Trailer for Xavier Dolan’s Tom At The Farm Is Eerie And Exciting

trailer-for-xavier-dolans-tom-at-the-farm

Québécois filmmaker and enfant terrible Xavier Dolan has been called many names: bratty, cheeky, cocky, insufferable, pretentious, and self-indulgent. He’s also been called brilliant and a genius.

He started his career as a young actor, who appeared in movies (such as 2008’s French extremity horror Martyrs) as well as ads for Quebec’s Jean Coutu chain of pharmacies. Eventually, his interests turned towards writing and directing.

His first effort, I Killed My Mother (J’ai tué ma mère), which he wrote, directed, and starred in, premiered at the Director’s Fortnight programme of the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, where it received a standing ovation, the Art Cinema Award, the Prix Regards Jeunes, and the SACD Prize. Dolan was only 19.

Oh My Goth: Crimson Peak Trailer Delivers The Goods

oh-my-goth-crimson-peak-trailer

There’s fantastic news for fans of Hammer horror and good, old-fashioned gothic haunted house films: Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak creeps into theaters in October.

When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, a young woman is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak.

From the imagination of director Guillermo del Toro comes a supernatural mystery starring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam.

I can scarcely imagine a better cast! Tom Hiddleston was exquisite as emo vampire Adam in 2013’s Only Lovers Left Alive, and Mia Wasikowska brought brooding heroine beauty to her portrayal of Jane Eyre in 2011. Jessica Chastain has her own haunted history, having starred in 2013’s Mama, while Charlie Hunnam certainly proved his worth in del Toro’s Pacific Rim.

Jeff Goldblum and Ron Perlman Star in Shadows of Evil, a Call of Duty Zombie Noir Adventure

black-ops-3-goldblum

Zombies have been a hallmark of Treyarch’s Call of Duty games ever since World at War, and the cooperative multiplayer mode has rapidly become one of the most popular features in the franchise. Past iterations have allowed players to battle the undead as JFK, Buffy Summers, and Richard Nixon, and the studio is pulling out all the stops now that Black Ops 3 is on the horizon.

Which is to say that Treyarch has dialed up Ron Perlman and Jeff Goldblum, and I’m really not sure what else you need to know.

But there’s a new trailer, so we’ll get into the details anyway.

French-Canadian director Denis Villeneuve is on a hot streak. He directed 2013’s Prisoners and Enemy, both starring Jake Gyllenhaal and both critically acclaimed. Prisoners was nominated for Best Cinematography at the 2014 Oscars, while Enemy, an adaptation of José Saramago’s 2002 novel The Double, earned five Canadian Screen Awards and was picked as Best Canadian Film by the Toronto Film Critics Association.

Villeneuve’s newest film is called Sicario. Starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio Del Toro, it looks like it could cement Villeneuve’s reputation as one of the most exciting directors making movies today.

There have been many great Australian films in the last few decades and Joseph Sims-Dennett’s latest, Observance, might be ready to join that esteemed list.

Observance will be premiering at Montreal’s famed Fantasia Film Festival in July and according to the festival’s press release, the film is “a poignant and terrifying thriller in the vein of Polanski’s Repulsion” and “promises to haunt your nightmares.” Considering that Repulsion is one of the most memorable creepy films I’ve ever seen, that’s a hefty promise indeed

Self/Less Shows That Science Fiction Requires Sacrifice

self-less-sci-fi-sacrifice

If you found out you could live forever, would you want to? And what lengths would you go to? These are a couple of the questions posed by upcoming science fiction thriller Self/Less.

Self/Less is directed by Tarsem Singh, who is known for his eye-popping visuals in Mirror Mirror, Immortals, The Cell, and my personal favorite, The Fall, which is one of the most beautiful movies I’ve ever seen. Self/Less was written by David and Àlex Pastor, who also penned Out of the Dark, The Last Days, and Carriers. They seem to have a good grasp on horror.
