4 (Good) Trailers from the Past Week

Another week means another batch of trailers. A week that was no doubt overshadowed by the release of the long-awaited Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer still featured a number of other trailers that you have just got to see.

Kicking off the list of trailers is Green Room, the critically acclimated indie film that took the film festival circuit by storm; it stars Anton Yelchin, Imoogen Poots, and Patrick Stewart. Second is another film festival hit, Swiss Army Man, which has become known as the “farting corpse” movie; it stars Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe. Next is the red band trailer for the comedy Search Party, which stars Silicon Valley crutches T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch. Lastly, but definitely not forgotten is the smaller movie Manhattan Night, which stars Yvonne Stahovski alongside Academy Award winner Adrien Brody.

Green Room

Release date: April 29th.

Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown.

Swiss Army Man

Release date: June 17th (limited).

Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on a deserted island, having given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) washes up on shore; the two become fast friends, and ultimately go on an epic adventure that will bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams.

Search Party

Release date: May 13th (limited).

Convinced that his buddy Nardo (Thomas Middleditch) is making the mistake of a lifetime by marrying Tracy (Shannon Woodward), Jason (T.J. Miller) puts a dramatic end to their wedding. When the furious bride decides to take her Baja honeymoon solo, Nardo follows her-where the lovesick groom is carjacked and left stranded, naked and penniless in a remote part of the Mexican desert. Helpless, Nardo sends out an SOS to Jason and their pal Evan (Adam Pally), an up-and-coming ad exec slated for an important business meeting the next morning. During their ridiculous attempt to rescue Nardo, the trio embarks on a series of increasingly outrageous misadventures involving con artists, drug smugglers and even the Federales in this wild and wacky action comedy.

Manhattan Night

Release date: May 20th (limited).

Manhattan Night tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a Manhattan tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home, he is a dedicated husband to his wife (Jennifer Beals) and father. But when Caroline (Yvonne Strahovski), a seductive stranger asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon (Campbell Scott), he can’t resist. In this modern version of classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail – one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.
