Team building exercises can be the worst. But James Gunn has found a way to make it just a little bit entertaining by turning those team building exercises into a bloody, twisted game of survival in The Belko Experiment.
While the filmmaker was too busy working on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to direct it himself, he handed over his script to director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek). Now we are finally getting our first look at the film in an all-new trailer. Check it out below.
Every once in a while Adam Sandler steps away from his usual movies, the lighthearted rom-coms and goofy stuff, and does something more dramatic such as Punch Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, and so on.
When it comes to one of his latest projects, titled The Cobbler, things are a little bit different. The movie’s premise sounds like something you’d expect to see Sandler in (a cobbler discovers he can put on the shoes of others and become them!), but the thing here is that, while still clearly a comedy, it’s delivered a little more seriously, with Sandler seemingly using his more serious actor side for at least a chunk of it. Whether this is a good thing or a bad thing remains to be seen, but you can see the trailer for yourself below.

Written and directed by Ryan Coogler, Fruitvale Station is based on the true story of Oscar Grant, a young man killed by a police officer at the Fruitvale Bay Area Rapid Transit Station in Oakland, California in the early morning hours of New Year’s Day 2009.
Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Friday Night Lights) stars as Oscar, an unemployed 22-year-old struggling to provide for his daughter Tatiana (Ariana Neal) and girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz, A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints).
When he wakes up on New Year’s Eve, Oscar resolves to be a better son to his mother (Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer), a better partner to Sophina, who he hasn’t been completely honest with lately, and being a better father to Tatiana, their four year-old daughter. After taking Tatiana to school and dropping Sophina off at work, Oscar goes to his former place of employment, a grocery store in Hayward, California, to ask for his job back.
