Official Trailer for Bradley Cooper’s ‘A Star is Born’ Starring Lady Gaga

A Star is Born Trailer

“All you gotta do is trust me.” Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for A Star is Born, a new remake of the classic film from 1937. Bradley Cooper both stars in and directs this movie, set in modern times, being billed as a “tragic love story” between a musician and a struggling artist. He co-stars with Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Germanotta, who plays a woman named Ally. The full cast includes Andrew Dice Clay, Anthony Ramos, with Dave Chappelle & Sam Elliott. In addition to playing Ally, Gaga performs original songs in the film, which she wrote with Cooper and a handful of artists, including Lukas Nelson, Jason Isbell and Mark Ronson. All the music is original and was recorded live. This looks like it’s going to be a HUGE hit, a musical romance for our modern era that Americans will flip for. Turn up the volume & enjoy. ›››

First Trailer for ‘The Old Man and The Gun’ Starring Robert Redford

The Old Man and The Gun

“Look at that – is he smiling?” Fox Searchlight has debuted the first official trailer for The Old Man and The Gun, the latest feature film written & directed by David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon, A Ghost Story). The film is based on and tells the true story of Forrest Tucker, from his audacious escape from San Quentin at the age of 70 to an unprecedented string of heists that confounded authorities and enchanted the public. Robert Redford stars as Forrest, and the cast includes Casey Affleck, Sissy Spacek, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, and Tika Sumpter. As expected, this looks wonderful – Lowery has been on a roll and only seems to be getting even better with every new film he makes. I love the vintage, film grain look to this – makes it feel like a heist film from a whole other time. It’s going to be good. Watch below. ›››

Impressive Full Trailer for ‘Mortal Engines’ Produced by Peter Jackson

Mortal Engines Trailer

“I’ve been looking for you for a long time.” Universal has debuted the full-length official trailer for the sci-fi adaptation Mortal Engines, based on a popular book series. This adaptation has been in the works for years, in development by Peter Jackson and the LOTR/Hobbit team. Jackson is not directing, instead he’s letting a VFX supervisor from Weta make his directorial debut. The fantastically eccentric ensemble cast includes Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide, and Stephen Lang. While they’re still not done yet, this does have some amazing VFX from Weta. The plot in this, which reminds me a bit of Dune at first glance, is about huge cities that move around and battle against each other. I have to say – I’m very impressed, this looks awesome, with a huge scope and scale that seems like it might be exciting to get into this world. You might want to check this out. ›››

First Trailer for Animated Sequel ‘The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part’

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part Trailer

“Oh no… Something new. What is it up to?” Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, the sequel to the wildly successful and highly acclaimed original The Lego Movie released in 2014. This one isn’t directed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, but they did write the screenplay and they did produce it, so they’re definitely still involved. This time around, the citizens of Bricksburg must fight off Duplo invaders from outer space. The voice cast includes Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Stephanie Beatriz, Elizabeth Banks, Channing Tatum, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Jonah Hill, and Tiffany Haddish. WB already made two other Lego “spin-off” movies about Batman and Ninjago in the meantime, but they’re bringing it back to the original story about Emmet Brickowski and Wyldstyle. This may only be a teaser, but it looks great already. The amusing Mad Max-esque opening is funny, I dig it. Check it out below. ›››

Watch: Wonderful Animated Short ‘Polaris’ About a Young Polar Bear

Polaris Animated Short Film

Well, this is wonderful. Polaris is an animated short film made by Japanese filmmaker Hikari Toriumi, finishing his 4th year of study at CalArts. This is his 4th year short film in the character animation program, and it’s an adorable, heartwarming film about a young polar bear leaving home for the first time, having trouble letting go of her mother. The animation style is unique and simple, but still meaningful and elegant. And the story perfectly captures that feeling of leaving home for college, or wherever, and how much you miss your parents. This film really moved me and made me sad at first, then happy by the end. Watch below. ›››

Cannes 2018: Ali Abbasi’s ‘Border’ is a Wacky, Wild Instant Cult Classic

Ali Abbasi's Border

It’s fairly easy to throw around the phrase that a film is an “instant cult classic”, but this time I really mean it. Border, which is the translation of the title Gräns in Swedish, is a new film from filmmaker Ali Abbasi (Shelley) and it just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section. File this one under “what the fuck did I just watch?!?” It’s one of those kind of “WTF” films, but it’s actually damn good. The more I think about it, the more I love it, so quirky and ridiculous and weird and wild and disgusting yet surprisingly amusing and tender. The only problem – I don’t want to give away the big reveal, and it’s hard to talk about this film without discussing that aspect of it. For this early festival review, I’ll be as vague as I can, and I won’t spoil it – because this is best experienced without knowing the big reveal before watching it. ›››

Second Trailer for ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me’ with Kunis & McKinnon

The Spy Who Dumped Me Trailer

“This is insane! Have you ever felt so alive?” Lionsgate has debuted the second official trailer for the buddy comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon as best friends who get into some spy trouble. The title is a riff on the classic James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me (released 1977). The plot involves the two women getting caught up in a deadly spy conspiracy with assassins on their tail, and even though he’s her ex-boyfriend, they’re still going after them. This trailer is a more conventional action movie trailer, and I still prefer the Bond song riff for the first teaser. Justin Theroux co-stars as the titular “spy”, with Gillian Anderson, Ivanna Sakhno, Sam Heughan, and Hasan Minhaj. This does look a little too absurd, and a little too cheesy, maybe it could be entertaining? Let’s hope it’s not a disaster. ›››
