Netflix has been coming in hot with the trailers all year long. They’re pumping out new content like nobody’s business, well, except for the new season of Stranger Things, but whatever.
Their latest trailer release? A thriller titled Intrusion. The home invasion drama stars Freida Pinto and Logan Marshall-Green.
Pinto plays a young woman named Meera who moves into a new, remote home designed by her architect husband, Henry. Not long after the couple moves in, their home gets broken into, leaving Meera traumatized and increasingly suspicious of everyone around her.
The trailer doesn’t exactly spoil anything, but it does make you question her husband a bit. Can she even trust him? Of course, we have to imagine there are several twists and turns.
This flick was directed by Adam Salky, who previously directed the 2015 drama I Smile Back starring Josh Charles.
Intrusion will hit Netflix on September 22, and it should be a fun Friday night popcorn flick. Check out the trailer below…
I’m not sure the filmmakers behind ‘Karen‘ were going for outrageous comedy when they made the film, but it’s clear that’s what they got.
The first trailer for the film was dropped this past week, and it’s made a lot of noise online, mostly from people clowning on just how bad it looks.
‘Karen’ was directed by Coke Daniels and stars Taryn Manning (Orange is the New Black) in the titular role. The plot is pretty simple. A black family moves to a new neighborhood and is basically terrorized by their white neighbor, appropriately named Karen.
They have described this film as a ‘thriller’ so we’re assuming they weren’t actively trying to make a comedy, which somehow makes the trailer even more hilarious.
Several people on Twitter called out the filmmakers for trying to be Jordan Peele and failing terribly…
No release date has been announced, but we’ll be watching out for one.
We all love a good psychological thriller, right? Well there might be a new one coming up.
It was just announced that Selena Gomez will star in the upcoming psychological thriller, Spiral. Petra Collins is set to direct. She’s a 28-year-old Canadian artist, who has directed a number of music videos, including one for Gomez.
Additionally, Drake is on board to exec produce with Matthew Budman and Sumaiya Kaveh producing through Forest Hill Entertainment.
The story follows a former influencer whose addiction to social media is causing her body to literally fall apart. Phoebe Fisher penned the most recent version with Collins and Melissa Broder penning a previous draft. Given the star power attached, this package should gain a ton of attention as it makes it way around town.
It sounds like an interesting idea, but also a dangerous one. Dangerous in the sense that it could easily go off the rails and turn almost comical.
No word on when production might begin, but we’re assuming sometime this year.
Gomez recently finished filming on the upcoming Hulu series, Only Murders in the Building. It’s set hit to hit the streaming service very soon.
Justin Hartley has become a household name in recent years, thanks to his starring role on the hit NBC series, This Is Us.
But the show can’t go on forever, and so Hartley is trying to make his name known in the feature world as well. The 44-year-old actor is reportedly joining the upcoming thriller feature, A Lot Of Nothing.
Filming is currently happening in Los Angeles right now, so it appears he was a late addition. He’ll be joining a cast that features Y’lan Noel, Cleopatra Coleman and Lex Scott Davis.
In the film, which is described to us as a ‘dark comedy-thriller,’ things spiral out of control when a married couple living in a LA suburb is compelled to take dangerous actions when they discover their next-door neighbor (Hartley) is the police officer that just murdered an unarmed motorist.
So even though he was a late addition, it appears he’s going to be playing a pretty important role in the film.
Actor/producer Mo McRae is making his directorial debut with the film, from a script he co-wrote with Sarah Kelly Kaplan.
Honestly. I’m excited for this project. I knew nothing about it before now, but the premise sounds intriguing. Plus, any mix of horror and comedy or thriller and comedy is an automatic win in my book.
No word on a release date, but it could be as early as this fall.
Filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov directed the thriller film ‘Profile’ back in 2017/2018. It actually premiered at the 68th Berlin International Film festival back in 2018.
But for some reason, it’s just now getting a release date inside theaters. Some people believe that a film sitting on a shelf for two years is a sign that it’s not good, but that’s not always the case. Hollywood is a bizarre place and sometimes things get pushed back for the most mundane reasons.
Profile follows an undercover British journalist in her quest to bait and expose a terrorist recruiter through social media, while trying not to be sucked in by her recruiter and lured into becoming a militant extremist herself.
The story is based on the 2015 nonfiction bestseller, In The Skin of a Jihadist by a French journalist who was forced to change her name and hire 24/7 security.
And just like the Timur-produced ‘Unfriended‘ film, this movie plays out entirely on a computer screen.
Check out the trailer below. It’s set to hit theaters May 14, 2021.
With theaters opening back up, more films are releasing trailers and preparing for a theatrical run.
The latest? Guy Ritchie’s revenge thriller, Wrath of Man. Ritchie wrote/directed this film, and he recruited action film star Jason Statham for the lead role.
Statham stars as the cold, mysterious and wild-eyed ‘H,’ who goes to work at a cash truck company that moves hundreds of millions of dollars around Los Angeles every week. He surprises his new co-workers during a heist in which he unexpectedly unleashes precision skills. The crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. Soon, the marksman’s ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score.
The project is actually a reimagining of Nicholas Boukhrief’s 2004 French heist thriller Le Convoyeur.
In addition to Statham, Wrath of Man also stars Scott Eastwood, Jeffrey Donovan and Josh Hartnett.
It’s set to hit theaters May 7, 2021. Check out the trailer below…
The serial killer thriller ‘The Good Nurse‘ is getting a lot of heat in Hollywood. It’s one of the more hyped Netflix films in recent memory, and for good reason.
The movie is set to star Jessica Chastain, Eddie Redmayne, and now ‘Sylvie’s Love’ star Nnamdi Asomugha. Production is expected to begin next month on the East Coast.
And not only does this film have some impressive talent in front of the camera, it also has talent behind the camera.
The script was written by ‘1917′ screenwriter Krysty Wilson-Cairns and it’s being directed by Tobias Lindholm, the writer behind the lovely film, Another Round.
The Good Nurse will tell the true story of the pursuit and capture of Charlie Cullen, a nurse who is regarded as one of the most prolific serial killers in history. Now called ‘Angel of Death,’ Cullen was a married father who was thought to be a responsible caretaker, but his secret compulsion to take life led to his implication in the deaths of as many as 300 patients over 16 years, spread across nine hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
As mentioned above, production will begin in April, so it’s possible it gets released this fall/winter on Netflix.
Aubrey Plaza will forever live in our hearts as April from ‘Parks & Rec‘ but she’s much more than just that.
She’s been starring in a handful of films recently, including the Christmas romance, Happiest Season, where she was perhaps the most likable character in the entire movie.
According to a new report, she’ll be switching genres completely for her next project.
Plaza will star alongside Jason Statham in the Guy Ritchie untitled thriller formally known as Five Eyes.
The story follows MI6 guns-and-steel agent (Statham) who is recruited by a global intelligence alliance to track down and stop the sale of a deadly new weapons technology that threatens to disrupt the world order. Reluctantly paired with CIA high-tech expert, Fortune sets off on a globe-trotting mission where he will have to use all of his charm, ingenuity and stealth to track down and infiltrate billionaire arms broker.
Sounds pretty generic to me, but it was reportedly the biggest deal coming out of the TIFF Virtual sales room, so there’s that.
STX will be handling distribution. No word on a potential release date.
Michael Bay had been searching for his next project for months, and it looks like he has finally settled on one.
According to multiple reports, the 55-year-old filmmaker will direct the action-thriller ‘Ambulance‘ with Jake Gyllenhaal in talks to star.
Not much is known about the plot, but insiders say the film is similar in tone to great action thrillers of the 90s like Speed and Bay’s Bad Boys.
One can only assume that there is some hostage situation on an ambulance, and Gyllenhaal plays an EMT trying to save someone’s life while dealing with a gunman. That’s my guess anyway. I could be completely wrong.
Chris Fedak wrote the original script, and sources say it’s likely Universal Pictures takes up the package.
Bay wants to start filming at the beginning of January, so he’s wanting to move pretty quickly.
This production itself will already be quiet the feat to undertake but if there is anyone that can tackle the challenge its the veteran director who has made a career of taking on tough productions. Bay has already had a busy 2019 as a producer on the STX thriller Songbird, a pioneering film that became of the first productions to shoot during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We’ll keep you posted as more information is released.
