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.
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.
Earlier this week the trailer for Naughty Dog’s long awaited game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was finally released.
As per, the award winning game developer did not disappoint with the trailer hitting all the right marks for fans. Except there was a slight problem with the trailer’s content, more specifically it turned out some of the footage used was from another game.
Accusations ran riot on social media until Naughty Dog themselves admitted that they had indeed used some artwork from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. The detail had been spotted by Ubisoft employee Azaïzia Aymar who took to social media and declared:
“I get the ‘thief’ title now!”
Ouch! Turns out it was all an innocent mistake and Naughty Dog apologised for the error by releasing the following statement:
“In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen. We want to sincerely apologise to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”
We doubt that this ‘mix-up’ will have any detrimental effect on the launch day sales of the game.
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.
It was once dubbed the most absurd and surreal photograph of the 20th Century, a snapshot from 1970 of a meeting which took place in the White House between the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon and one of the most iconic singers in history Elvis Presley.
Now that quirky story of exactly how that picture was taken is to be told in a Hollywood rendition of the meeting. Starring Kevin Spacey as Nixon and Michael Shannon as Elvis the film will apparently explore the details behind the meeting, which were a lot stranger than the picture itself.
Elvis & Nixon is set for general release on April 29th.
Here’s the trailer for Jeff Nichols’ much anticipated sci-fi flick Midnight Special, starring Michael Shannon, Joel Edgarton, Adam Driver, Sam Sheppard and Kirsten Dunst.
The plot of Midnight Special rattles along like so:
Roy is a father desperate to protect his uniquely gifted, eight-year-old son Alton. Joined by Joel Edgerton and Kirsten Dunst’s characters, this group must race to get Alton to a secret location all while being hunted by an extreme religious sect led by Sam Shepard and a government task force headed up by Adam Driver.
Midnight Special is due for release on April 15th
