ISLE OF DOGS trailer reminds us Wes Anderson’s stop-motion is as quirky as his live-action

First trailer for Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs

Isle of Dogs debuted its first trailer just over two months ago, so my apologies for only now sharing it. The site’s due for a redesign, and I’ve been falling behind, but it’s good to be back. The new stop-motion full-length feature from Wes Anderson comes eight years after Fantastic Mr. Fox, the director’s first foray into stop-motion, and it’s great to see Anderson dipping his toes into the medium again. This time around, we’re taken to Japan twenty years in the future, a time when overcrowding of the canine population leads to an outbreak of dog flu, and then we crash land with the film’s main character onto…wait for it…an isle of exiled dogs. The premise is fun, the voice acting is top-notch (Anderson has a rolodex full of familiar faces/voices to fill out his cast), and the fine edge and composition that have become a Wes Anderson staple all make Isle of Dogs worth the watch. I’m loving everything I see here.

Haven’t heard of Isle of Dogs or need a refresher since it’s been so long since the trailer dropped? Watch the trailer, read a short plot synopsis, and check out two posters for Isle of Dogs after the jump.

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.
