Watch: ‘Ash vs Evil Dead’ Official Television Series Trailer is Bloody Perfection

ashvsevildead-trailer

Sam Raimi’s 10-episode television followup to the cult horror classic The Evil Dead has a trailer and it is 3 minutes of over the top gore and one-liners; everything you were hoping for. I was trying to figure out a way to work in a ‘Booooooom stick’ joke here somewhere.

Bruce Campbell won’t be alone either, Lucy Lawless will also star in the show reuniting the two actors from their Xena days. Can’t wait! Watch the trailer for Ash vs Evil Dead below, and this sorta goes without saying but a warning for those unfamiliar – it is violent.

Bartkira: Official Animated Trailer

bartkira-trailer-01 bartkira-trailer-02 bartkira-trailer-03

Ryan Humphrey and James Harvey’s fantastic Bartkira project just gets bigger and better as time goes on. Their labour of love, to have artists all over the world re-create Akira using Simpsons characters, is one of my favourite crowd-sourced projects ever! You can see a map here of all the contributing artists’ locations.

Kaitlin Sullivan organized a group of over 50 artists to create a trailer for the animated version of Bartkira and made it look like something that would have appeared on an old Bartman VHS. The results are amazing. Watch the Bartkira trailer below.

Trailer: Maurizio Cattelan The Movie

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.

Official Film Trailer: “The Zero Theorem” Directed by Terry Gilliam

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.

Trailer: “Inside”

inside-limbo-trailer-playdead

I am not a gamer by any stretch of the imagination but I do like puzzles. A few years ago a Danish publisher called Playdead released an indie puzzle game called “Limbo” that completely blew my mind. It was kinda dark, with beautifully stylized animation, and insanely difficult puzzles. The game really struck a chord, won all kinds of awards, and scored 10/10 on many sites. (If you have an iPad, you should get this game for your next flight.)

Playdead has just released a trailer for their new game “Inside” and it looks spectacular. I probably won’t post about video games too often but this is a work of art. I kinda wish it was a movie; I don’t even own an Xbox. Watch the trailer below.
