New Trailer for Aussie Drama ‘Felony’ Starring Joel Edgerton and Tom Wilkinson

felony-4Actor Joel Edgerton stars and penned the script for Felony, an Australian thriller directed by Matthew Saville, about a detective (Edgerton) involved in a tragic accident. Enter two detectives, Tom Wilkinson and Jai Courtney, with conflicting motives and you’ve got yourself a tense little drama.

Melissa George co-stars in the film that had its worldwide premiere at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival and will open in Australia on August 28th.

Unfortunately, we do not have a release date for the US as of this moment, but I feel and hope this will change.

New Trailer for Simon Pegg’s ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness’

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-simon-pegg-stellan-skarsgardLooks like this fine day has graced us with a new trailer for Simon Pegg’s new film, Hector and the Search for Happiness, slated for release in the US on September 19th.

Christopher Plummer, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Stellan Skarsgård, and Jean Reno join Mr. Pegg in what appears an inspirational tale of a psychiatrist struck with a bad case of the blues and sets off to explore the world with hopes of finding true happiness (I bet you he finds it, but it’s not where he think it is).

Because Simon Pegg appears to be a truly good guy in a sea of clueless nutters, any film he is in is worth mentioning in my book. So, here we are.

‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Turns 40, Watch NSFW Trailer For New 4K Restoration


40 years ago, a group of Austin film students gathered to film one of horror’s most enduring classics, Tobe Hooper’s grotesquely glorious The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  To celebrate this milestone, the 70’s horror phenomenon got a 4K makeover, Blu-ray birthday and a nationwide theatrical release.

View the NSFW trailer for the restored edition here:

Although it might seem that this is just one in a long list of aging classics to hit the restored and released circuit, the original Massacre still throws a mighty punch and is well worth the price of admission.

Trailer for Simon Bolivar Biopic ‘The Liberator’ Starring Edgar Ramirez


Yesterday witnessed the release of a new trailer for the Simon Bolivar biopic entitled The Liberator, starring Edgar Ramirez.  Ramirez, who portrays Bolivar, is known for his work in such films as Zero Dark Thirty, Domino and more recently, his starring role in Carlos The Jackyl.  The feature was directed by Latin directing giant Alberto Arvelo and penned by Timothy J. Sexton, known for his Oscar-nominated adaptation of Children of Men.  

There are no confirmed release dates for wide-release in the states although the piece has been appearing at various film festivals across North America, including a future screening at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 15th.

Watch The Trailer For New Icelandic Film From Baldvin Z, ‘Life in a Fishbowl’


Few Icelandic films in recent history have created a buzz like the one for director Baldvin Z‘s second feature, Life In A Fishbowl. One critic even states that the film is “The best Icelandic film in history.” The film has already obliterated the blockbuster competition in it’s native country, beating out such films as Godzilla, Edge of Tomorrow and X-Men: Days of Future Past on their premiere weekends.

That being said, there is no news yet regarding international distribution or any release dates outside of Iceland; however, with the box-office receipts claiming that at least a tenth of Iceland’s population gained admission to the film since it’s May 16th release, there now might be enough fiscal weight attached to the hit to snatch up a deal.

The drama starring Hera HilmarÞorsteinn Bachmann and Thor Kristjansson is based on true events in Iceland and follows the stories of 3 individuals: a single mother who moonlights as a prostitute, a suicide-drunk dealing with a past trauma and a former footballer now prominent financial VIP.
