DOWNSIZING trailer is Matt Damon’s Honey I Shrunk the Kids! world for wealthy adults

Downsizing trailer shrinks Damon and Wiig down to a manageable size

The first trailer for Downsizing dropped mid-month to preview the upcoming Honey I Shrunk the Adults-style overpopulation and responsible budgeting dramedy from director Alexander Payne (Sideways, Nebraska). Imagine a world in which $52,000 is worth $12 million because you’re only a few inches tall and your resource demands are only a fraction of the cost. Sure, shrinking yourself and your financial responsibilities may be exciting and adventurous at first, but I bet the seams start to come apart when the gravity of what you’ve done sets in. That’s the premise of Payne’s Downsizing, an odd movie that sees a tiny Matt Damon scraped off a hospital table by a nurse with a spatula, and I’m curious to say the least.

Watch the first trailer for Downsizing and read a short plot synopsis for the movie after the jump.

THE DISASTER ARTIST trailer promises a self-aware meta mockumentary of The Room

The Disaster Artist trailers put Tommy Wiseau front and center again

No one knew what to expect when The Disaster Artist was first announced. Until the new trailer for the movie dropped, wondering why a James Franco-starring meta mockumentary film about the making of the infamous movie The Room needed to exist would be a natural response. Having seen the trailer, I’m joining the online opinion that The Disaster Artist could be something special. Not as laugh-out-loud upsettingly terrible as The Room special, but terribly laugh-out-loud upsetting in an ironic sort of way. Franco’s portrayal of the cartoonish Tommy Wiseau seems on-point, and the humor appears to be a self-deprecating thread holding together a more heartfelt tale of dreams, triumphs, and disasters.

If you’re still skeptical, check out the new trailer after the jump.

Red band trailer for INGRID GOES WEST focuses on social media obsession

Explore Aubrey Plaza’s social media obsession in Ingrid Goes West

UPDATE: Now includes newest full-length trailer for the movie after the jump as well.

The first red band teaser trailer for Ingrid Goes West previews the dark side of social media mania. It’s red band for a few choice words early in the trailer, but for the most part there’s nothing overtly outrageous on display. The movie looks like it might loosely follow the introvert-turns-crazy-party-girl stereotype, but there’s enough flair on display in the trailer to give off hints of Sophia Coppola mixed with maybe Harmony Korine. Admittedly, I don’t know much about this one, but it looks like it could be dark and quirky in a cult classic black comedy sort of way. Aubrey Plaza has been doing more out-of-the-box work lately, with this and the upcoming naughty nun movie The Little Hours, and I’m interested to see where Ingrid Goes West…goes.

Check out the red band teaser (again, red band for language), read a plot synopsis, and take a look at the poster for the movie after the jump.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI trailer previews Martin McDonagh’s new dark comedy

Red band trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a mouthful of a title, and the first trailer for the movie is an earful of absurdly enjoyable profanity. Director Martin McDonagh made his mark with fun-but-flawed previous movies In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths (the second more flawed than the first), and his latest looks like real black comedy territory. On the surface, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is about a mother angry over her daughter’s murder, but the trailer teases an escalation that turns violent and outrageous. This is McDonagh’s trademark style–start simple then get strange–and this movie should be an enjoyable romp through small-town trouble.

The first red band trailer for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri doesn’t hold back on the language, so consider yourself warned if you’re in a work setting. That said, I found myself grinning by the end at just how odd and awesome this movie looks, so the trailer is worth the watch. Check it out, read a plot synopsis, and take a look at the first poster for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri after the jump.

THE LITTLE HOURS trailers dress funny women in nun costumes and let them loose

The Little Hours trailers feature foul-mouthed naughty nuns

The Little Hours looks like a chance for some funny women to get a little unhinged and raunchy while playing dress-up as nuns. Sound like fun? It could be, but the movie could also be a bit too much for some people. If the first red band trailer is any indication, these nuns aren’t holding back, and we’re in for screaming, swearing, sexing, and general nunnery shenanigans. The cast is a blend of comedy favorites, and it’s fun to see these performers together in what may easily be dismissed as a raunchy comedy period piece akin to Your Highness. I’m optimistic, but this kind of humor is hit or miss most times. The fine line between hilariously absurd and offensive for the sake of being offensive is a tough one to walk. That said, there’s talent here who have been successfully swimming in that strange pool for quite some time, and it’s been working for them. Naughty nuns seems like a logical stepping stone.

Watch a few trailers for The Little Hours, read a plot synopsis, and check out a handful of posters for the movie after the jump.
