New trailers and updates for upcoming films

Tom Cruise is American Made

Tom Cruise reunites with his Edge of Tomorrow director, Doug Liman, for this September 29 release. Based on the true story of Barry Seal, American Made follows Barry (Cruise) as he moves from piloting passenger planes to prop planes full of drugs and guns, working for various factions in the 1980s drug war. Sarah Wright plays his wife, and Domhnall Gleeson, Lola Kirke, Jesse Plemons, Jayma Mays, and Caleb Landry Jones show up in supporting roles.

Landline goes back to the '90s

Landline re-teams director Gillian Robespierre and her Obvious Child star, Jenny Slate, for a 1995-set story about two sisters, Dana (Slate) and Ali (Abby Quinn), who suspect their father (John Turturro) is having an affair. As they try to uncover the truth, keep it from their mom (Edie Falco), and deal with their own issues, they find themselves bonding for the first time. This July 21 release received good reviews when it premiered at Sundance in January.

Pixar's Coco

With Cars 3 hitting theaters next Friday, Pixar has released a new trailer for their next film, the November 22 release Coco. Directed by Lee Unkrich (Toy Story 3) and Adrian Molina, the movie follows the music-loving Miguel (newcomer Anthony Gonzalez) as he and his dog, Dante, struggle to unlock a family mystery and return home from the Land of the Dead. The voice cast includes Benjamin Bratt, Gael García Bernal, Edward James Olmos, and Cheech Marin.

Preview the Netflix doc Chasing Coral

Chasing Ice director Jeff Orlowski takes his cameras under much warmer seas for his latest documentary, an investigation of coral bleaching—a sign of mass coral death—that is occurring more frequently with each passing year. From Bermuda to the Bahamas, Hawaii and eventually the Great Barrier Reef, Orlowski and his team race to document indisputable evidence of this underwater catastrophe. Chasing Coral hits Netflix on July 14th.

First Kill's first trailer

Director Steven C. Miller and Bruce Willis, one of the least rewarding collaborations over the last few years of cinema (Extraction, Marauders), are back together again with First Kill. Their latest slice of B-movie action follows Will (Hayden Christensen), a Wall Street broker on vacation with his family. When his son is kidnapped, Will must avoid (or work with) the police chief (Bruce Willis) to secure his son’s return. Find it On Demand and in theaters beginning July 21st.

Strange Weather

In the July 28 release Strange Weather, Holly Hunter stars as a grieving mother looking for answers about her son’s suicide. Her curiosity leads her from Mississippi to New Orleans, where a friend of her son settled and possibly stole his idea for a restaurant chain. Written and directed by Katherine Dieckmann, the film also stars Carrie Coon and Kim Coates.

Short takes

In the Korean action movie Reset, Yang Mi must time travel to save her son. Look for it in select theaters June 30th.

The July 14 release Blind stars Alec Baldwin as a blind novelist who begins an affair with the wife (Demi Moore) of an indicted businessman (Dylan McDermott).

Coming to select theaters and On Demand July 21st is Killing Ground, an Australia-set horror film from writer-director Damien Power.
