First official trailer for Charlie Kaufman’s highly-anticipated, stop-motion animated movie, “Anomalisa” has arrived! Kaufman fans are sure to be pleased as it looks like yet another thoughtful foray into the beautifully mundane struggle that is life. Gorgeous score by Carter Burwell (works with Coen Bros. a lot) as well! Enjoy below!
What did you do for Halloween? If you were in New York hopefully you had a chance to check out The Wolfpack Show at Jeffrey Deitch’s gallery. For those familiar with Crystal Moselle’s documentary, The Wolfpack (2015), Halloween is kind of a big deal for the Angulo brothers. Growing up in a strict environment, and largely confined to their small apartment, homemade movie-making was an important form of imaginative escape.
The exhibit (which ended November 1st) featured many of the costumes and props the brothers made throughout the years. It also included a series of portraits by photographer Dan Martensen, who used their photo shoot as another platform for the Angulos’ staged recreations. Check out the trailer for The Wolfpack and more images from The Wolfpack Show below!
This looks really good! “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, won the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and is set to come out June 12th. The story is about a kid who makes bad parodies of movies and his friendship with a classmate who has been diagnosed with cancer.

I can’t tell if this documentary is real or not, but I hope it is. This appears to be a trailer focused on the work of divisive contemporary artist, Maurizio Cattelan, who famously retired at 51 following his retrospective at the Guggenheim, in which he suspended all his works from the ceiling. The artist’s body of work includes sculptures of a marble middle finger, a meteor landing on the pope, a praying Hitler; needless to say no one feels luke warm about his work. I personally enjoy the mischievous spirit in a lot of his work (not all of it), I would be disappointed if there wan’t some sort of trick pulled on viewers with this film.
According to the New York Times, director Maura Axelrod has been following him around collecting footage since 2000, and it appears her film will finally be released next year.
Watch the official trailer for it below.
The official trailer for “Inherent Vice” has been released and it looks fantastic! The film is the seventh feature from director Paul Thomas Anderson, who also wrote the screenplay based on a Thomas Pynchon novel.
The all-star cast includes Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro, Martin Short, Jena Malone, Eric Roberts, Michael K. Williams, Maya Rudolph, and musician Joanna Newsom. The icing on the cake for me is the music is once again by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.
Watch the official trailer below! Can’t wait.
The official trailer for Terry Gilliam’s latest film “The Zero Theorem” is out and it looks like it might actually be good?! There is a question mark on the end there because, well, “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” was so terrible I kinda completely lost faith. Christoph Waltz does feel like the perfect fit for a Terry Gilliam film though. I really hope the quote in the trailer about this being his greatest work since Brazil is true. Watch the official trailer below.
