Stuff You Need to Know: Okay, Let’s Try This Again

Carrie Fisher Yes?

Everything you’re about to read in quick snippet form would be an entire post on other sites, with the same amount of content plus maybe 200-300 words of filler. Nobody has time for that shit. We’ve got a lot of trailers to catch up on. Enjoy.

  • All I can tell you about the upcoming Gunpowder Milkshake is that it seems it will live up to the promise of its title. Look at this cast. Look at all the guns they use. It looks epic.
  • Harkening back to a simpler time with more straightforward apocalypses, rather than the complicated apocalypse we find ourselves in now, is How It Ends. Which appears to have someone’s entire Rolodex in it.
  • I think the world became a brighter place a while back when Jean-Claude Van Damme started embracing the full silliness. Here’s The Last Mercenary, which is laced with pure insane joy.
  • I was on board with No Sudden Move with the teaser which hit a month ago. But the full trailers just solidifies my decision that this must be seen. Soderbergh, period crime, this cast…yes, please.
  • I don’t know what’s happening to Nicolas Cage recently (I can already hear you asking “What do you mean recently?”, but he seems dead set on being the gonzo actor of his generation. And I am totally here for it. Here’s the trailer for Pig, which seems like a mashup between Babe and John Wick.
  • Apparently Paul Freeman (aka Belloq) has been making the rounds doing interviews for the 40th anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark. The most interesting one I found was on this site, where, in my opinion, he nails why the first film is so timeless and the later films…less so.
  • This looks like it might be a film, but it’s an eight episode miniseries based on the podcast of the same name. Ferrell and Rudd playing opposite each other in this sort of scenario looks interesting, and of course, MVP Kathryn Hahn can also be spotted in the trailer. So The Shrink Next Door is on the list.
  • Lin-Manuel Miranda (yes, he of Hamilton) is making his feature film directorial debut with the Jonathan Larson work that came before Rent. It’s tick, tick…BOOM! And I think it looks pretty fantastic. Did you know Andrew Garfield could sing? Because I did not.
  • I mean…I don’t know who ordered the Independence Day/Edge of Tomorrow mashup, but Tomorrow War is here. And I’m game.
