The Overnight Trailer Video

It was a pretty fun week for trailers, with Johnny Depp looking gangsteriffic in Black Mass and Chris Pratt running with raptors in Jurassic World. We’re also ready to get suckered again byM. Night Shyamalan with The Visit. But there were a few more fun films giving us a sneak peek, so check out with some of the more forgotten flicks from this past week…

The Overnight

We understand being a little suspicious about a movie billed as “Sundance’s best sex comedy,” but The Overnight really plays more like a major-studio cringefest. Adam Scott and Taylor Schilling star as new L.A. residents who end up up on a weird playdate with parents Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche. The trailer gives you a pretty good idea of the weirdness that entails, but you’ll marvel at the parts that couldn’t be shown in the trailer….


Area 51

So the guy who made Paranormal Activity ran out and made another low-budget found-footage film in 2008–and then it sat on the shelf for years, despite Paranormal Activity making all kinds of money and launching a franchise. Let’s assume it’s a conspiracy, since Area 51 is about kids who shoot some video while running around the notorious government property that supposedly houses UFOs of some sort. Anyway, this is what some folks have been waiting for…


Barely Lethal

This one isn’t going to movie theaters–and seems to be a DirecTV production, so it’s all the more baffling to see Jessica Alba and Samuel L. Jackson in this movie about teen spy Hailee Steinfeld. We know that Mr. Jackson works a lot, but this is so much like Kingsmen: The Secret Service that we’re mainly wonderig if he’s even reading the scripts before signing on….


Mega Shark vs. Kolossus

From the makers of Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Mega Shark vs. Crocosaurus, and the (not so good) Mega Shark vs. Mecha Shark comes the latest movie in which a Mega Shark has to go up against a cool creation. This time, it’s a pretty cool twist with Russians reactivating an old Cold War experiment that would’ve been too outdated to be in Pacific Rim–but looks fun while heading to Syfy…
