    Sweet Trailer…Season Two of ‘Ted Lasso’

    One of the most surprising things to come out of 2020 was the ever-charming Apple TV+ show Ted Lasso. And who says you can’t have a jolly good time in a pandemic. What the show has going for it – aside from the cast, the writing, the chemistry of the leads, the care-free charm of Jason Sudeikis, the gorgeous cinematography, and Dani Rojas, Rojas, Rojas – is simple: it is delightful up, down, and sideways. As such, it should surprise no one that a new season is on the way, so all you Lassoites (yes, I made that up just now) don’t have long to wait to get back to…

    Sweet Trailer…’Take Out Girl’

    We’re always on the look out for something different. If, like us, you’re a little burned out on super heroes, sequels and zombie films, then look no further. This impressive looking film is inspired by real events, and it feels pretty real in the trailer. Actress/Co-Writer Hedy Wong and Indigenous Director/Co-Writer Hisonni Johnson choose to amplify their AAPI/Indigenous voices by focusing on commonalities in their upbringing. They came together on this project to show how their shared familial bonds, poverty, and the lack of upward economic mobility, led to crime in their minority communities. Take Out Girl tells the story of Tera (played by Wong), a 20-year-old Asian-American woman who parlays her family restaurant delivery expertise into a…

    Sweet Trailer…Tom Hanks in ‘News of the World’

    Seems that even in a pandemic, you can’t keep a good Hanks down. First of all, he and his wife Rita beat the Coronavirus. And shortly after that, his WWII actioner, Greyhound, was released in early Summer. And for his third feat of 2020, he headlines a moving period-piece, set in the plains of Texas, about a war veteran helping return a young girl to her family. Paul Greengrass’ new film – a Western written and directed by Greengrass (based upon the novel by Paulette Jiles) – finds him reuniting with his star from their 2013 Best Picture nominee Captain Phillips. Looks like another winning project for the both of…

    Sweet Trailer…Mel Gibson as Chris Cringle in ‘Fatman’

    The Grindhouse revival has fallen off in the past several years, but that’s just what makes this trailer so surprising. It’s unexpected, outlandish, and a really inventive take on a mythic figure like Santa Claus. It’s always a laugh when genre films play with holidays (see Anna and the Apocalypse), and this looks to be jolly good fun…especially with him how serious they are taking it. The film might not have the legs for a full feature, but for a trailer it’s highly intriguing. I’m all in. Enjoy Mel Gibson and Walton Goggins in the trailer for Saban Films’ Fatman. To save his declining business, Chris Cringle (Mel Gibson), also…

    Sweet Trailer…Steven Yeun in A24’s ‘Minari’

    When it comes to studios that deliver hit after hit after hit, it’s tough to compete with A24 who are one of the few who constantly bring the goods. Their brand of cinemagic is realism and, further, one with tangible human stories that make a real connection. As such, we’re really looking forward to this one from Lee Isaac Chung. Sometimes you just need a movie that gets right to your heart, right? If so, then enjoy the trailer for the Steven Yeun-led Minari. A tender and sweeping story about what roots us, Minari follows a Korean-American family that moves to a tiny Arkansas farm in search of their own…

    2020 is a weird time to be living in. Seems like there’s always bad news, and a crisis looming behind every headline. From COVID to weather to finance, it seems like we just can’t get ahead. But, wouldn’t it be great if we could level the playing field? Well, if you haven’t seen it yet, you should check out the fist trailer for Echo Boomers. It’s a stylized heist film that is a good mix of Robin Hood, Spring Breakers and Widows and, best of all, it stars Michael Shannon. We’re fans, so of course we’re game.

    Sweet Trailer…’The Croods: A New Age’

    Well, file this under ‘U’ for unexpected, unbelievable, and utterly awesome. One of our very, very favorite films from the last decade is, hands down, The Croods. What Dreamworks and team did was deliver something so inventive, so imaginative, and so darn fun, I can’t understand why it hasn’t captured more of an audience. We raved about it in 2013 (check out our glowing review here) and I’ve loved it every single time I’ve seen it since. And now we have a sequel!! There’s something so incredibly charming about this family dynamic (including the stellar cast who are all back for this sequel) set against the simply gorgeous pre-hysterial narrative…

    Sweet Trailer…Jimmy O. Yang in ‘The Opening Act’

    They say that laughter is the best medicine. And after this year, we’re gonna need a lot of it. So if your funny bone is need of some tickling, then check out The Opening Act.

Whether or not this is the Rocky of the stand-up comedy genre remains to be seen. But if having Vince Vaughn & Peter Billingsley on board as…

Can’t believe this is almost upon us, but in these crazy times I think we need a feel-good type of film that picks us up and rocks our world.
