Welcome back to the end of the week! Here are a few more select trailers to get excited for the year ahead! Take a look and see what you like:
“The Fallout” is arguably the most hard hitting trailer I saw this week, starring Jenna Ortega and evoking tragedy and exploring trauma and relationships while claiming to be the first movie to define Gen-Z. I don’t really know if that’s true, but this hits hard:
Written and directed Megan Park and produced by Shaun Sanghani, Todd Lundbohm, David Brown, Cara Shine, Rebecca Miller, Joannie Burstein and Giulia Prenna, Warner Brothers will release this streaming on HBO Max January 27th, 2022.
“Kimi” is a technology-inspired thriller from Steven Soderbergh, and the central performance from Zoe Kravitz sells it harder than most elements:
Directed by Steven Soderbergh and written by David Koepp, HBO will release this streaming on HBO Max February 10th, 2022.
“Against the Ice” stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and is a survival thriller set in the early 1900’s:
Directed by Peter Flinth, written by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Joe Derrick (adapted from a novel by Ejnar Mikkelsen), and produced by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Baltasar Kormákur, Netflix will release this streaming on March 2nd, 2022.
“Last Looks” stars Charlie Hunnam, Morena Baccarin, and Mel Gibson and seems to be an effort to reinvigorate some careers through an LA-based edgy-murder-comedy:
Directed by Tim Kirkby and written by Howard Michael Gould (adapted from a novel BY Howard Gould), RLJE Films will release this in select US theaters and on VOD February 4th, 2022
“Hellbender,” because I’m one of those weirdos, is the trailer that has me the most excited as a film fan this week. The imaginative visuals and creep factor elevates this significantly for me:
Written, directed, produced, scored, and edited by a filmmaking family: Toby Poser, John Adams, and Zelda Adams, also known under the company name ‘Wonder Wheel Productions,’ Shudder will release this streaming on February 24th, 2022.
“A Violent Man” is a more somber prison drama and seems to have a unique, soft aesthetic:
Written and directed by Ross McCall and produced by Stefan D’Bart, Hester Ruoff, and Bart Ruspoli, Vertigo will release this in theaters in the UK February 4th, 2022.
“Moon Manor” seems like a meditative comedy about a man who announces intent to end his life and plan, the best he can, for it:
Written and directed by Erin Granat and Elizabeth Brissenden (Machete Bang Bang) and produced by John Humber, Bay Dariz, Erin Granat and Elizabeth Brissenden, Good Deed Entertainment will release this in select US theaters and on VOD March 11th, 2022.
“Expired” looks, at first, like its capitalizing on a budget-Blade Runner aesthetic, but the concept that a person begins to deteriorate as he grows affection for someone after “selling his soul” to become a killer…:
Ryan Kwanten looks like he’s putting his all into this. And hey, Hugo Weaving! Written and directed by Ivan Sen and produced by David Jowsey, Angela Littlejohn, Greer Simpkin, and Ivan Sen, Lionsgate will release this in select US theaters and on VOD March 18th, 2022.
“King Knight” looks like a dark, promising indie comedy about to horrid secrets of a witch, that he used to be prom king, threaten his status among his followers:
Written and directed by Richard Bates, Jr. and produced by Richard Bates Jr., Robert Higginbotham, and Colin Tanner, XYZ Films will release this in select US theaters and on VOD February 17th, 2022.
And finally, “Wu Assassins: Fistfull of Vengeance” is the first movie in some time starring Iko Uwais, of “The Raid: Redemption” and its’ sequel:
Directed by Roel Reiné (aka John Rebel), written by Cameron Litvack and Yalun Tu, and produced by Roel Reiné, Netflix will release this streaming on Netflix February 17th, 2022.
