Filipino director Brillante Mendoza is proving to be a pretty prolific filmmaker. Since 2005 he has 11 feature film and three short film directing credits to his name, and has also directed a segment in an anthology series and an episode of television for good measure. Although he’s yet to have one film truly break out, he’s been quite a hit on the festival circuit last year. “Thy Womb” was in competition for the Golden Lion at Venice while "Captive" with Isabelle Huppert premiered in Berlin. Now, after several arthouse successes, Mendoza is trying something a litltle different, with his next feature by taking on the horror genre.

So, how mega early is this three minute red band trailer for "About Last Night"? The movie doesn't come out until next year. In fact, there isn't even an official still for this, and yet, Sony is opening the gates on this way way, way early in the hopes that this spot is funny enough that it'll stay in your mind for a while. And does it succeed on that front? Not particularly.

When tackling provocative material, there is a fine line between drama and merely being seamy and soapy. And that's the line director Anne Fontaine ("Coco Before Chanel," "The Girl From Monaco") needs to balance in "Two Mothers" which brings together Naomi Watts and Robin Wright for a very unique story.

We don't cover these Honest Trailers very often, but sometimes everything aligns as it should, and with today being Valentine's Day, the folks at Screen Junkies have fittingly taken their satiric wit to "The Notebook." And while it's not the best one of these they've put together, it does knock down "The Olive Garden of love stories" a few pegs.

With "The Host" arriving in just over a month and the chatter around it has remained...minimal, certainly far less than what was launched upon Stephenie Meyer's previous YA hit, "Twilight," the marketing has changed gears. In the fall, we got the very tweeny version of the trailer, that was clearly geared to a certain demographic, and now we have a more action-oriented spot for everyone else. But yeah, still looks kinda whatever.

After taking a siesta from movies to go to the stage with "Frankenstein" and tend to the London Olympics, Danny Boyle is coming back hard, and he's keeping it lean and mean. Leaning more towards his early thrillers than his later crowdpleasers, "Trance" is a heist film with an intriguing psychological bend, and apparently a bit more blood than we would have expected. A new red band trailer has arrived and the nervy pic just got even more interesting.

What are moral and ethical lines of digging into someone's past, particularly someone who might have been affiliated with a horrible action, but all in the name of the greater good? These seem to be the thematic tangles that Robert Redford will look to uncover in his latest directorial effort, "The Company You Keep." And a brand new trailer has arrived showing off a mix of ideals and thrills coming for you this spring.

There are times, on this very site, when we cry out for originality, for Hollywood to stop lazily packaging movies and shoveling them into the marketplace. This is not one of those times. Yes, Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson have made this movie a half dozen times already, but whatever, we'll gladly watch one more.

Just when you thought you saw everything there was to see regarding “The Master,” here comes a new minute-long trailer that will leave fans of the movie even more befuddled. As you likely remember, director Paul Thomas Anderson posted a number of different teaser clips from the film in the months leading up to its theatrical release in September. When the movie finally came out, we were all a bit surprised when there appeared to be some scenes missing in the final cut. Now, after digging through the script to uncover all the scenes that were missing in the film and sifting through all the Blu-ray/DVD extras to explore the deleted scenes that were filmed, the new international trailer for "The Master" continues to recontextualize the movie through footage in the finished product as well as the stuff on the cutting room floor.

One actor who made our feature Fire Your Agent: 10 Actors Who Need A Change Of Career Direction was John Cusack, and his upcoming "The Numbers Station" pretty much illustrates why he belongs on that list. Yet another generic thriller (once slated to star Ethan Hawke instead), this is the latest in a string of genre efforts by the actor that are as bland as they are interchangeable.
