A general rule of thumb is, if you buy a new house and discover a spooky room that’s not on the floor plans, you run away as fast as you can. But if that happened in horror movies like The Disappointments Room, there wouldn’t be much of a story, would there?
Say a word. Is it connected to the mystery in BBC America’s version of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency? According to this teaser, probably!
Of all the things in this trailer—the body horror, the water coming from nowhere, the hand coming out of the TV—I think the thing that worries me the most is that these people went to Vincent D’Onofrio for help.
Fourteen-year-old new girl in school Greta is already neck-deep in the petty horrors of adolescence when her totally embarrassing family decides to throw her a big birthday party... a fiasco so epic it sends the girl into a trippy, fantastical dream world that’s even crazier than her reality.
Daylight’s End looks like yet another zombie apocalyptic action movie, but it has a secret weapon: Lance Henriksen, who is pushing 80 but is still quite obviously 100 percent badass. He may have a supporting role here, but anyone in a doomsday plague survival situation would be lucky to have this Aliens veteran by…
It seems like it’s truly captured to total blandness of the Max Steel concept, so, uh, good job there.
Terrence Malick has a documentary that is, of course, about the entire history and future of humankind. And, equally obviously, there’s a 40-minute version for IMAX narrated by Brad Pitt as well as a regular film version narrated by Cate Blanchett. No offense to Pitt, but we’d take the Blanchett version any day.
A comic-book artist draws her dream man, a hotshot film director, who comes alive in animated form as he’s shooting his new movie, an artsy drama about a novelist whose latest project is about a comic-book artist. All three stories intertwine and reality collapses in on itsel in Zoom.
It’s been over a year since Adam West revealed that he and Burt Ward would reprise their roles as Batman and Robin for a new animated feature—but now we have the first look at it in action: Holy footage, Batman, it’s a trailer for Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders!
A slightly different, international trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has hit the web. With it comes a few seconds of new footage and one very intriguing reveal.
The stories of NASA’s formative years and the early days of the space program have been chronicled time and time again, but Theodore Melfi’s Hidden Figures is telling one we’ve not seen before about the African American women who helped send rockets to the stars. It’s looking great so far.
We finally got another trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story last night, and it was packed full of new stuff—including, of course, Darth Vader. We’ve gone through it with a magnifying glass and all of our nerdery to see what secrets and details are hiding inside it.
The second trailer for the first standalone Star Wars film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has finally arrived, urged forth by the legions of fans (and their memes of fraught anticipation) forced to sit through hours of Olympics coverage to see it. Was it worth it? HELL YES IT WAS. (Heavy breathing.)
The first trailer from Arrival, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of the Ted Chiang short story Story Of Your Life is finally here. It looks like an Oscar contender wrapped in a high-concept blockbuster package, which is a way to say it looks great.
In case the title wasn’t clear. In case writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson’s statements that this would be the last weren’t clear. In case the actors saying it was the last one weren’t clear. In case all of those things were missed, the international trailer has got you covered.
If you’re reading io9, odds are if you see that there’s a teaser trailer for any new scifi movie, you’ll check it out. The hope is always: “Is this the next big thing?” It usually isn’t, but this is how we found Primer, Timecrimes, Snowpiercer, and others—and it’s how we found this incredible trailer for Hidden…
The five-minutes-into-the-future megacorp dystopia is hardly a new concept—this Matt Damon and Ben Affleck-produced take on it for Syfy is just the latest in a long line. Original or otherwise, however, the first footage from Incorporated manages to strike an effectively tense tone.
Update: Oops. We’ve been had, apparently. The teaser trailer was actually viral marketing for a new series called Junketeers. Sorry Roth fans and thanks to /Film for the heads up.
This November, the National Geographic Channel will take audiences into outer space in a way we haven’t seen before. From producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer comes Mars, a six-part TV miniseries that blends documentary and science fiction to dramatize humankind’s first trip to Mars in 2033—and io9 is proud to…
Christophe Gans’ version of the fairy tale, starring Vincent Cassel (Jason Bourne) and Léa Seydoux (Spectre) is coming to the United States this fall. And with this trailer, it’s officially the best-looking of any of the recent cinematic attempts to do these fairy tales justice.
