New year’s resolution: watch more movies.
Our first batch of movie trailers in 2018 kicks off with the real-life story of California’s spookiest destination, the Winchester Mystery House. Helen Mirren stars as Sarah Winchester, the wealthy widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester, who obsessively ordered construction on her Victorian mansion over 38 years to ward off hostile spirits.
The Workaholics guys are getting the band back together for Game Over, Man!, a Die Hard-influenced action-comedy that sees three hapless waiters spring into action when the building they work in – and pop star Shaggy – is taken hostage.
And speaking of Die Hard, look for Bruce himself to make an appearance at his badass best in Death Wish.
On an isolated stretch of land 50 miles outside of San Francisco sits the most haunted house in the world. Built by Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), heiress to the Winchester fortune, it is a house that knows no end. Constructed in an incessant twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week mania for decades, it stands seven stories tall and contains hundreds of rooms. To the outsider it looks like a monstrous monument to a disturbed woman’s madness. But Sarah is not building for herself, for her niece (Sarah Snook) or for the brilliant Doctor Eric Price (Jason Clarke) who she has summoned to the house. She is building a prison, an asylum for hundreds of vengeful ghosts, and the most terrifying among them have a score to settle with the Winchesters. Inspired by true events.
Game Over, Man
Three friends must level-up and become heroes when their workplace, a Los Angeles hotel, is taken hostage by evil gunmen seeking a large ransom. Game Over, Man! is a dangerous comedy from the creators of Workaholics starring Adam Devine, Anders Holm, and Blake Anderson.
An unusually bitter Arctic blast has made its way to downtown Cincinnati and the front doors of the public library. Its patrons – many of whom are homeless, mentally ill and marginalized – and its exhausted and overwhelmed staff build a unique connection, and in the face of the extreme weather event, turn the building into a homeless shelter by staging an “Occupy” sit in. What begins as an act of civil disobedience becomes a stand off with police.
Truth Or Dare
Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) and Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf) lead the cast of Truth or Dare, a supernatural thriller from Blumhouse Productions (Happy Death Day, Get Out, Split). A harmless game of “Truth or Dare” among friends turns deadly when someone—or something—begins to punish those who tell a lie or refuse the dare.
Dr. Paul Kersey (Bruce Willis) is a surgeon who only sees the aftermath of his city’s violence as it’s rushed into his ER – until his wife (Elisabeth Shue) and college-age daughter (Camila Morrone) are viciously attacked in their suburban home. With the police overloaded, Paul, burning for revenge, hunts for his family’s assailants to deliver justice. As the anonymous slayings of criminals grabs the media’s attention, the city wonders if this deadly avenger is a guardian angel… or a grim reaper.
Mad To Be Normal
David Tennant of Doctor Who fame stars as celebrity psychiatrist R.D.Laing, who revolutionised the treatment of people diagnosed as ‘mad’. Working out of Kingsley Hall in East London throughout the 1960s and 1970s, Laing performed various daring experiments on people who were diagnosed as mentally disturbed. His revolutionary methods involved experimenting with LSD and practicing a form of self-healing known as metanoia, causing outrage and controversy in the medical profession and radically changing attitudes and perceptions of mental health around the world.
The End of the F***ing World
Based on the award-winning series of comic books by Charles Forsman, The End of the F***ing World invites viewers into the dark and confusing lives of teen outsiders James (who’s pretty sure he’s a psychopath) and Alyssa (who he plans to kill) as they embark on a road trip to find Alyssa’s father, who left home when she was a child.
The China Hustle
From the producers of Enron: The Smartest Guys In The Room comes a Wall Street heist story about a still-unfolding financial crime so big, it has the power to affect all of our wallets. Investors on the fringes of the financial world feverishly seek new alternatives for high-return investments in the global markets, and have found a goldmine in China. But when one investor discovers a massive web of fraud, everything else is called into question. Jed Rothstein’s documentary rings the alarm on the need for transparency in an increasingly deregulated financial world by following those working to uncover the biggest heist you’ve never heard of.
