First Trailer for Secret WWII Sci-Fi Movie 'Overlord' Made at Bad Robot

Overlord Trailer

"A thousand year army" Paramount has dropped the first official trailer for a movie called Overlord, a secret project from Bad Robot made by Australian filmmaker Julius Avery (Son of a Gun). This project was first rumored to be the "new Cloverfield movie", that could be altered in post-production to fit into that universe. But Paramount has decided to release it as its own movie, sticking to the original script that was filmed. Overlord is about a group of WWII soldiers who end up stuck behind enemy lines after D-Day. They discover the Nazi's secret plans to create more powerful soldiers using supernatural forces. Starring Jovan Adepo, Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbk, John Magaro, and Mathilde Ollivier. I'm way, way in for this - especially considering it's coming from Bad Robot, they've been cookin' up something gnarly for us to enjoy.

IFC Films has released the chilling official trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Elizabeth Harvest, which first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year. The film is the latest from Venezuelan filmmaker Sebastian Gutierrez (Elektra Luxx, Hotel Noir) and is about a woman who is about to get married to a brilliant scientist, until she finally opens the locked door in his home and discovers what's behind it. They don't reveal much in this trailer, but it seems to be a mix of body horror and psychological horror. "Elizabeth Harvest casts a spell of creeping Gothic menace as it unravels a disturbing tale of identity, obsession, and twisted love." Abbey Lee stars with Ciarn Hinds, Dylan Baker, Carla Gugino, & Matthew Beard. This looks very unsettling.

Nathan Fillion is Nathan Drake in an Unofficial 'Uncharted' Short Film

Uncharted Short Film

"My employer is not a man you want to cross." After all the support from fans, Nathan Fillion went off and decided to star in his own live-action, unofficial short film for Uncharted. Fillion has teamed up with director Allan Ungar, producing and starring in this homemade short film about Nathan Drake trying to escape unharmed. In addition to Fillion, this stars Stephen Lang as Sully, Geno Segers as Diego, Mircea Monroe as Elena, and Ernie Reyes Jr. as El Tigre. This film plays up the humor and cockiness of Drake, along with his skills of sneakiness and hand-to-hand combat. It's considerably entertaining even though it's very simply put together, which is probably why this work so well. It's all about the character. Watch below.

Elle Fanning in French Teaser Trailer for Mlanie Laurent's 'Galveston'

Galveston Teaser Trailer

"Are you going to kill me?" "No." The Jokers distribution out of France has debuted the first teaser trailer for an indie film titled Galveston, the latest feature directed by French actress Mlanie Laurent (The Adopted, Breathe). This originally premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, which makes sense considering it's set in/around Texas and it's also Laurent's first American film. Ben Foster stars as Roy, a man on the run after a violent encounter with his boss. He picks up a prostitute named Raquel, played by Elle Fanning, and decides to take her with him as he tries to escape to Galveston, Texas. The cast includes Lili Reinhart, Mara Valverde, Beau Bridges, Robert Aramayo, and Adepero Oduye. This really looks like a very dark, intense, moody action-thriller more than a drama, with some slick cinematography.

New Trailer for the 4K Re-Release of Paranoia Film 'The Atomic Cafe'

The Atomic Cafe

"You must be ready every day, all the time." Kino Lorber has released a new trailer for a re-release of a cult classic paranoia film titled The Atomic Cafe, which was first released in theaters in the US in 1982. The wacky, entertaining, frightening documentary film is a collage of footage and newsreels collected from the 1940s and 1950s of United States government issued propaganda films designed to reassure Americans that the atomic bomb was not a threat to their safety. It features all those classic, freaky clips of atomic bomb explosions, juxtaposed with the safety videos of how to survive, juxtaposed with all the propaganda videos explaining that all is well and we have the bomb and there's nothing to worry about. "Returning to theaters in a sparkling 4K digital restoration created by IndieCollect, The Atomic Cafe is an absurdist blast from the past that would be downright laughable if it werent so eerily relevant to our fake news present." Have fun.

Matt Smith & Natalie Dormer in Pandemic Thriller 'Patient Zero' Trailer

Patient Zero Trailer

"Something new and smart is evolving" Sony has debuted the trailer for an indie horror thriller titled Patient Zero, another attempt at mixing up the zombie genre with new ideas. The twist in this one is that one guy has the unique ability to speak "the Infected's new language" and leads the last survivors on a hunt for Patient Zero and a cure. Matt Smith stars as Morgan, the one with the skill of communicating with the undead/zombie/creatures but goes up against a formidable opponent when they find The Professor, played by Stanley Tucci. The cast includes Natalie Dormer, Clive Standen, Agyness Deyn, John Bradley, Colin McFarlane, Pippa Bennett-Warner, and James Northcote. As interesting as this "pandemic" film seems, there's so much of the usual tropes in this it doesn't seem like it really has anything new to offer.

Another New Trailer for Fox's 'The Darkest Minds' Superpowers Movie

The Darkest Minds Trailer

"What happens next?" 20th Century Fox has debuted another new trailer for their superpowers movie The Darkest Minds, in theaters in August. Finally they're putting out footage that really makes this look good, instead of looking like just another YA movie for teens. The best trailer yet for this movie - worth a watch. The Darkest Minds is set just after a disease kills 98% of America's children, and the surviving 2% develop superpowers and are then placed in camps. A 16-year-old girl escapes and joins a group of other teens on the run. This stars Amandla Stenberg, Mandy Moore, Harris Dickinson, Wallace Langham, Golden Brooks, Mark O'Brien, Patrick Gibson, and Gwendoline Christie. I'm very curious now, even if this does seem a bit too much like X-Men meets The Girl with All the Gifts. But now you have my attention, Fox.
