TOMB RAIDER 2018 gets its first action-packed, video game reminiscent trailer

Tomb Raider trailer reboots the movie in the vein of the game reboot

Tomb Raider 2018 is another movie in a long line of hopefuls that attempts to “be the first successful video game adaptation,” which is always a strange slot for a new film to occupy. Assassin’s Creed recently tried and fell flat on its face, even with the help of Michael Fassbender, and there have been so many more before Tomb Raider that they’re just not worth counting (I guarantee someone, somewhere, has counted every single game-turned-movie adaptation). Unfortunately, Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) doesn’t have the audience pull of Fassbender, yet she’s taken up the Lara Croft mantle, and the Tomb Raider game franchise barely seems to keep knocking the last nail from the coffin with each new iteration. Reboots upon reboots upon “hey look a top-down weird/kind of cool one.” With that in mind, I think anyone would be hard-pressed to root for Tomb Raider the movie 2018 TM with 100% gusto, and the first trailer for the film does little the raise anticipation levels.

Judge for yourself, and check out the first trailer for Tomb Raider after the jump.

THE SHAPE OF WATER new red band trailer teases del Toro’s strange fantasy fairytale

shape of water movie trailer 2017

Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water trailers are full of wonder and weird

The Shape of Water is Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming thriller/fantasy/fairytale, and if the trailers are any indication we can expect del Toro’s iconic stamp of surreal innocence and naive danger. A new red band trailer just debuted, which is red band for language for the most part, but the film’s R rating makes me optimistic that the director will continue to dig into the shadows in a way that only he manages to pull off. Del Toro always seems to be climbing his own Mountain of Madness toward more mainstream success (Blade, Hellboy, Pacific Rim), but it’s like he’ll drop something crazy and unique and then slide back down the mountain for a while. The Shape of Water looks great, but I don’t see it catapulting him back up to the peak where I think he’d like to be in order to bring some of his more outrageous Lovecraft ideas to life.

Watch both the first full-length and the new red band trailers for The Shape of Water after the jump.

JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE trailer replaces the board with a Nintendo

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle trailer takes a Tron turn

The first trailer for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the upcoming remake/reboot no one really wants but we’re all curious about, was released a while ago but is worth checking out if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m late to the party, and I remember cocking an eyebrow and filing this trailer away in June when I first gave it a watch. The remake/reboot/sequel(?) sees the iconic board game turned into a Nintendo-like video game and updated for a new generation. Instead of wooden pieces and real-world wildlife, it looks like this time around we’re being immersed in a virtual reality-type, body transfer…thing. Check out the trailer and you’ll see what’s going on.

Watch the first trailer for 2017’s Jumanji, read a plot synopsis, and glimpse a poster for the movie after the jump.

ANTI MATTER trailer teases a mind bending low budget movie like Pi, Primer, or Memento

anti matter movie trailer 2017

Anti Matter looks like a low key gem of a movie

Stumbled across the trailer for the movie Anti Matter recently, and the movie looks interesting enough to sink some time into (you’ll get it once you watch the trailer). Cerebral mind benders are tough to sell in a the span of a trailer, so don’t get your hopes up too high, but Anti Matter dropped in the UK last year (with a US release scheduled for this fall) and has been compared to cult favorites like Pi, Primer, and Memento. That’s some deep water to be wading around in as a debut feature film, and comparisons like that are bound to turn a few heads. The monkey mask got my attention, and the high praise kept me around for the length of the trailer. Here’s hoping Anti Matter finds a respectable audience when it hits US theaters in September.

Watch the trailer, read a plot synopsis, and check out a few movie posters for Anti Matter after the jump.

First full-length IT trailers tease what looks like a terrifying remake of a classic

Pennywise is back in first It remake movie trailers

I’m a little late to the It party, but better late than never, right? A few trailers and teasers for the upcoming remake of the 1990 TV mini-series based off of Stephen King’s original novel have made the rounds, and it’s safe to say the update is creepier, darker, and less Tim Curry-er. Curry’s incarnation of the iconic clown is hard to forget, but all signs point toward the remake looking like a promising reincarnation of both the story and the creature/clown/character. Whether you loved the book or feared the mini-series, It should be worth the watch to see what’s changed, what’s stayed the same, and whether clowns can still be terrifying.

Check out two It trailers, read a short plot synopsis, and take a look at the poster for It after the jump.
