‘Nightcrawler’ Alums Jake Gyllenhaal & Dan Gilroy Paint a Horrifying Picture in New Trailer for ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’

Writer/director Dan Gilroy and leading man Jake Gyllenhaal first showed us their collective dark side with 2014’s Nightcrawler. Set in the seedy underworld of Los Angeles, the subversive crime thriller became an instant critical darling and earned about five times its meager budget at the box office. Now, the two are re-teaming for a new film which captures the horrors of the modern art scene.

Netflix just released a new trailer today for Velvet Buzzsaw, a movie where, “mega-collectors pay a high price when art collides with commerce.” In the clip, tapestries come to life to maim, mangle, and burn their highfalutin owners. The trailer shows off Gilroy’s signature blend of heightened realism, satire, and dark imagery, and you can watch the entire clip for yourself below: read more

Netflix Releases Trailer for ‘Maniac’ Starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill

Netflix has a new series coming out called Maniac. It’s not based on the ultra-violent 1980 William Lustig film, but it still looks pretty darn creepy! The series is co-written and directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the writer of It (2017) and the director behind the incredible first season of True Detective. In the new trailer, Stone’s and Hill’s characters appear to be participating in a pharmaceutical trial that’s going off the rails with unintended side effects. The result is a psychedelic, mind-bending thriller, with scenes crossing various genres and filmic styles: read more

Kevin Williamson’s ‘Tell Me a Story’ Trailer Released

The new trailer for Kevin Williamson’s upcoming CBS All Access series, Tell Me a Story, was just released and it is definitely reminiscent of the stories that made him famous in the 1990’s.  In Williamson’s own words (from the TCA Conference) “This reminds me a lot of my early days. It took me back to another place.”

The writer/director best known for ScreamI Know What You Did Last Summer, The Faculty, and Dawson’s Creek, appears to be venturing back into the slasher-thriller territory with his new series, which is supposedly based on classic fairy tales (and also based on an Argentinian anthology  series).  The focus on young, attractive twenty-somethings and mystery is readily apparent in the trailer (as well as a lot of sex and drug use, which I guess I missed the last time I read Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel and The Three Little Pigs). read more
