We’ve been waiting on the first trailer to Seth Rogen’s adult animated movie Sausage Party for quite some time. The initial buzz around the R-rated film is highly positive with many early reports indicating that the film is outrageous and debauched. Just how we like it.
The plot of Sausage Party rattles along like so:
The film tells the story of one sausage setting out on a quest to discover the truth about his existence. After falling out of a shopping cart, our hero sausage and his new friends embark on a perilous journey through the supermarket to get back to their aisles before the Fourth of July sale.
Sausage Party is scheduled for general release on August 12th,
Here’s the second eye melting trailer for the first person movie Hardcore Henry, starring Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky and Tim Roth.
The film is directed by first time Russian director Ilya Naishuller and the plot rattles along like so:
Hardcore Henry is a first-person perspective action film, in which the audience sees everything through the eyes of Henry, who’s resurrected from the brink of death as a cybernetic super soldier that remembers nothing about his past. He is trying to save his wife Estelle, who has been kidnapped by Akan, a powerful warlord with a plan for bio-engineering soldiers. In the unfamiliar city of Moscow, Henry tries to avoid being killed while discovering the truth behind his identity.
Hardcore Henry is scheduled for general release on April 8th.
Last year a mash-up video artist called Antonio Maria Da Silva made a ten minute short called Hell’s Club, (see below), which featured a vast array of movie characters all interacting with each other in the same nightclub. It was a technical feat of editing and video manipulation.
This year Antonio has pushed his creative talents even further with a follow-up entitled Hell’s Club Part Two: Another NIght which is double the length and twice the fun. This is why I love the Internet so much.
It was a critical hit at last year’s Fantastic Fest and Toronto International Film Festival and now it’s picking up stellar reviews, with some critics describing it as the best disaster movie for a generation.
The plot of Norwegian film The Wave rattles along like so:
The experienced geologist Kristian Eikfjord has accepted a job offer out of town. He is getting ready to move from the city of Geiranger with his family, when he and his colleagues measure small geological changes in the underground. Kristian gets worried and his worst nightmare is about to come true, when the alarm goes off and the disaster is inevitable. With less than 10 minutes to react, it becomes a race against time in order to save as many as possible including his own family.
No word on a UK release date.
Music video and film director Spike Jonze recently guest directed the opening introduction to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
The two and a half minute segment has no dialogue, just music and portrays Colbert as a vagabond, sleeping rough in Central Park. It’s an emotional short about hope and never giving up, with a surprise cameo from the blue muppet Grover.
Chris Rock hosted the 88th Academy Awards last night and started proceedings with a blistering ten minute long opening monologue.
In light of recent controversy surrounding the Oscars, regarding the complete lack of black nominees, Rock did not shy away from addressing the issue. We’re pretty sure in years to come this will be regarded as the most politically charged opening to any Awards ceremony.
Here’s the critically acclaimed short film The Chickening which, due to it’s highly successful debut at last year’s Fantastic Fest, is now available to all, thanks to YouTube.
The Chickening is a ‘classic film remix’ from the warped mind of Nick DeBoer which you can watch in it’s full surreal, f**ked up glory above.
