READY PLAYER ONE gets its first trailer and teases Spielberg’s anticipated adaptation

Spielberg’s Ready Player One adaptation gets a crazy trailer

Ready Player One made a big splash as a novel in 2011 and found a home in the hearts of ’80s nostalgia enthusiasts the world over. Steven Spielberg, the ’80s nostalgia auteur himself, decided the book was perfect source material for a live-action, big screen adaptation, and the first trailer for his movie proves there will be plenty of in-book references for the director to play with. Personally, I wasn’t smitten by the book, and I felt the ’80s pop culture references were a bit heavy handed at times, but I can imagine a movie adaptation in the hands of Spielberg (and backed by the cast this movie has) being a ton of fun. The trailer teases plenty of recognizable characters and creatures, and the book was packed with enough references to fill a few Spielberg toy boxes, so it’ll be cool to see what makes the cut and what gets left out.

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.

ATOMIC BLONDE trailers preview Charlize Theron’s John Wick movie

Charlize Theron means business in first Atomic Blonde trailers

If every actor or actress gets a Taken/John Wick, the upcoming beat-em-up Atomic Blonde is Charlize Theron’s. The first trailers for Atomic Blonde paint the movie in neon and dangerous with Theron kicking ass and taking names as an international spy on a mission. She’s “equal parts spycraft, sensuality, and savagery,” and there’s not much more you need to know before digging into the trailers and deciding whether Atomic Blonde is up your alley. Comparisons to John Wick (given the fight choreography on display and the fact that the director directed some of Wick) are bound to abound, which is alright if you were among those who thought John Wick was a blast. I’m feeling a little Guy Ritchie, hints of Edgar Wright/Matthew Vaughn, and that jump-out-the-window scene is peeled straight out of Robert Rodriguez’s first Machete movie. Sounds like fun, right?

Watch Charlize Theron get beat up and do some beating up in the trailers for Atomic Blonde after the jump.
