WAR DOGS trailer gives Jonah Hill and Miles Teller keys to the arms race kingdom

War Dogs trailer tells true story of fledgling arms dealers

Playing a little trailer catch-up, and the movie War Dogs has been on my radar since the first trailer dropped a few months ago. The movie star Miles Teller and Jonah Hill as real-life amateur arms dealers who dive headfirst into the international arms trade by lowballing the competition by more than $50 million. The aesthetic and story makes me think of the Nicolas Cage movie Lord of War, and it’ll be interesting to see director Todd Phillips (The Hangover, Due Date) venture into somewhat-more-serious territory.

Watch the trailer for War Dogs, read an official plot synopsis, and check out a poster for the movie after the jump.

Zoolander 2 trailer sees Mugatu return and Blue Steel lost again

The first Zoolander 2 trailer looks like a movie that was made simply to remind audiences these characters exist and were once worth a laugh. That said, I chuckled more at Mugatu looking ripped (above) and Benedict Cumberbatch pulling a Marilyn Manson than at anything else in the trailer, but fans of Ben Stiller’s first high fashion parody will likely enjoy his follow-up film. There are some new faces, some bound-to-be-hilarious cameos, and the return of the two male models (Stiller and Owen Wilson) and their signature looks that filled the first movie. I won’t say I’ll be lining up to see this one opening night, but it should be worth the watch if only to see more of these crazy characters.

GODS OF EGYPT trailer and posters hint at a wild fictional interpretation of Egyptian myth

Gods of Egypt trailer and character posters are pretty outrageous

When the first posters for Gods of Egypt popped up a few days ago, the media wasn’t sure what to make of how flamboyant and strange they were. I’ll admit, I wasn’t even aware of the project until those posters made their waves, and now a trailer for the movie helps solidify the oddness of what’s to come. Gods of Egypt looks like something akin to Immortals in its unashamed bending and stretching of ancient mythology, and I’m a sucker for swords and sandals fantasy adventure films, so I’m optimistic. The cast is strong enough to spark some curiosity, but what’s more curious is director Alex Proyas (Knowing, I, Robot, Dark City) being involved. If anything, the trailer teases a colorful romp through some wild Egyptian fiction.
