My Cousin Vinny as a courtroom thriller trailer works incredibly well

My Cousin Vinny is a classic comedy. The titular character, Vincent Gambini, is a fledgling lawyer from Brooklyn who finds himself completely in over his head as he tries to prove his nephew’s innocence in a grisly murder case. The film’s comedy comes, in part, from subverting this bleak set-up. But it’s also what…

Professor X admits he’s too old for this shit in new Logan trailer

We’ve been bracing ourselves for the adult language and mature situations of Logan ever since James Mangold’s movie got an R rating. The depressing truth we confronted in the first trailer—that even a man whose cellular structure is constantly regenerating can grow old—was enough to make us wonder whether we’re ready…

It’s Always Sunny red band trailer’s full of indecent exposure and proposals

We have some idea what the 12th season of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia will entail: a musical, some Scott Bakula, and a little dutty wine from Dennis (Glenn Howerton). That’s in addition to the usual profanity-ridden hijinks from the Paddy’s gang, which are all on full display in this red band trailer. The gang…

Steven Seagal returns to his backbreaking work in Contract To Kill trailer

Among Steven Seagal’s dubious achievements in the last decade are his recently granted Russian citizenship and this trailer for Contract To Kill, which is not, as you might expect, a straight-to-DVD release. No, Contract To Kill—not to be confused with Hard To Kill, which also starred Seagal—will have a proper…

Villains rise in new Batman: Return Of The Caped Crusaders trailer

While waiting for Bruce Wayne to pass puberty, Fox’s Gotham series has been chock full of bad guys —the previous season was even dedicated to their “rise”. That “more is more” sentiment has made its way to the new Batman ’66-based animated film, which sees part of Batman’s rogues gallery spill out onto the streets of…

The End Of A Gun trailer reminds us that Steven Seagal still makes movies

Looks like someone is really stepping up their game in the perpetual “I can nap through a movie more consistently than you” competition with Bruce Willis. Steven Seagal, who is only vaguely aware that he’s continued to make movies throughout the 21st century (including, let us never forget, his immortal role as “Cock…

Luke Cage becomes Harlem’s Defender in the first official trailer

Was there a more significant moment at this year’s Comic-Con than when Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker told attendees that the world was ready for a “bulletproof black man?” We doubt it, but then we also got our first look at the ground-and-bone-breaking new Netflix series that stars Mike Colter as the titular…

Matthew McConaughey looks appropriately insufferable in The Sea Of Trees trailer

Imagine if you will a movie in which Matthew McConaughey plays a spectacled academic who’s so beaten down by the difficulties of his middle-class life that he travels to Japan in order to end his life in the Aokigahara forest. Imagine that within that tangle of branches and leaves his character happens upon a wise old…
