Also starring Rihanna, obviously
So now you have one more reason to go see the new Annie movie, which I’ve heard is really fun—plus Quvenzhané Wallis earned herself a Golden Globe nomination. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have reunited on-screen again, which makes this fake movie trailer some sort of bizarre, That 70s Show/Twilight crossover. Seriously, you have to see this to believe it. The new parents are the stars of the upcoming movie (just kidding, it’s not upcoming) MoonQuake Lake, and this parody trailer is so ridiculous, I love it. Click inside for more!

I’m in the middle of writing another essay about one of my favorite movies of the year, Beyond the Lights. Sigh. This amazing film was the victim of poor marketing, and it just drives me crazy that it was made to look like a romance flick when it is so much more. I’ve made it mission to sing this movie’s praises from the mountaintops because OMG it was soo good. And I know many of you would appreciate it, as its core narrative is a powerful critique of today’s music and pop culture. Now, before December’s over, I’ll be posting about my Top Films of the Year (just like I did for last year’s indies), and I’m scrambling to see some movies before the year is up! Click inside to give me some recommendations, and to share your top picks of the year!
"Out here, everything hurts"
Back in July we got to see the first trailer for the upcoming reboot film Mad Max: Fury Road, which was first screened at San Diego Comic-Con. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film. As you can see in the embed above, this trailer is packed with lots of action … like, a lot of action. The goal here, it seems, is to smash the viewer over the head with intense visuals in an effort to entice them to want to see the movie in full. I can’t say that I’m all that jazzed about a Mad Max remake but I do enjoy watching Tom Hardy on the big screen so … I’m, at the very least, interested. If you add Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult to the mix and, well, I guess I’ll have to see this movie when it opens next year. This second trailer does seem a bit heavy-handed but I do get the sense that it’s the sort of thing the Mad Max fans might enjoy.

More than we expected
In early October, we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming Disney/Pixar film Inside Out — which opens next year — and today, we get to check out the just-released second trailer for the animated movie. The first trailer led us to believe that the movie would be centered on a group of emotions living inside a little girl’s head. This second trailer shows us that the movie is actually so much more. Click the embed to watch this new trailer and see what Pixar has planned for us next. I must admit, this second trailer makes me much more interested in seeing Inside Out when it opens next June.

What's Old is New Again
The first teaser for Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens has been remade AGAIN but this time not in LEGO, or in the style of George Lucas or Wes Anderson. This time, the trailer has been recreated using footage from the original Star Wars Trilogy films. Click above to see the new teaser recreated scene by scene with footage from Episode IV: A New Hope, Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.
An epic, timely cover story for 'The Hollywood Reporter'
I don’t think this article could have come at a better time. Seriously. Chris Rock penned a brilliant (and hilarious) essay for the December cover story of The Hollywood Reporter, and I finally got the chance to read it today. The actor and comedian has been a favorite of mine for some time now, and I am so insanely excited about his new movie Top Five, I make everyone in the house quiet down when the trailer comes on TV… in spite of the fact that I’ve seen it just about every day. Tracy Morgan, Rosario Dawson, JB Smoove, Gabrielle Union (and I just realized Jay Z and Kanye West are two of the producers)—it’s going to be great. Click inside to read my 10 favorite moments from his amazing article!
Coming January 17
Yesterday we got to see a batch of really great promo photos from the forthcoming Lifetime made-for-TV movie about the life of Whitney Houston. Today we get to see the just-released trailer for Whitney. As you can see above, this trailer already looks better than any biopic movie that Lifetime has already released this year so in that regard, it’s already a winner. I had a feeling having Angela Bassett in the director’s chair would elevate this TV movie to higher ground. It’s obviously too soon to tell judging solely from one trailer but I already love what I see, do you? Whitney will premiere on Lifetime on January 17.
Coming January 11
Last month we got our first look at the forthcoming second season of the HBO series Looking and today we get a second, longer look. The network has just released a first official trailer for Looking season 2 that shows us actual scenes from the show, giving us our first taste of the drama to come. New boyfriends, love triangles and hot tubs. Yep, it looks like Looking is coming back for more of the same. The new season of Looking will premiere on HBO on Sunday January 11.

Yes, Arnold says "I'll be back"
In August we learned the title, in October we got our first look at the characters, yesterday we saw the motion poster and today — we get to see the first trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Terminator: Genisys. As you can see above, Genisys looks more like a retelling of the Terminator origin story rather than an actual sequel … tho, it would appear that the plot is open enough for interpretation to make an argument that this is a sequel. I dunno. The trailer looks much better than I was anticipating so that’s the good news. Terminator: Genisys will open in theaters next summer. Does it look like something you’re dying to see?

Thus far, we have seen the official teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and the Internet has given us both a LEGO version of the teaser and an imagined George Lucas version of the teaser. Today, we get to see what the teaser trailer might look like had it been directed by Wes Anderson. Since the LEGO version came out, there have been a plethora of similar (yet subpar) parody videos … but this Wes Anderson one is so perfect that I had to share it. Thank you Internet, for this here gift.
