Follow Me

Follow Me

(PG-13: Language) Will Sasso stars in this mockumentary about a stay-at-home dad who becomes obsessed with becoming a social media “celebrity,” ignoring the real world and preferring the digital one. It would be way more funny if we didn’t know people like this.

Fist Fight (Trailer)

9 to 5 Feet Under

9 to 5 Feet Under

(PG-13) Terry Ziegelman’s short film takes us inside the world of a man with a mundane desk job who meets with an untimely end, yet nobody seems to notice. We’re a little concerned about the “Inspired by Actual Events” title at the beginning though.

Do your best Blue Steel and celebrate the return of the dopiest male models ever. But this time, they’re old and lame, as fashion always moves on. Still they find their way to the runway as they must stop a killer who’s taking out the world’s most beautiful people. Yeah.

Is it just us, or does this trailer have nothing to do with the description of Melissa McCarthy’s latest comedy: “After losing her job and learning that her husband has been unfaithful, a woman hits the road with her profane, hard-drinking grandmother.”

A Million Way to Die in the West

A Million Way to Die in the West

(NSFW: Language) Despite an awesome cast, we’d have to say the jury is still out on Seth MacFarlane’s upcoming comedy which ventures into the risky territory of westerns. Though the Mila Kunis joke was pretty funny.

Big Ass Spider (Trailer)

Big Ass Spider (Trailer)

While we’re not sure it’s as difficult of a nemesis to take down as a sharknado, the idea of a giant, venom spewing arachnid destroying L.A. sounds like a good way to pass the time while chomping popcorn. Anyone got a 200-foot-tall can of Raid?

Ass Backwards (Trailer)

Ass Backwards (Trailer)

Two friends who failed miserably at the pageant circuit when they were kids (and continue to fail miserably at life) have an opportunity to turn back time and set things right. Or not. The comedic cast is top-notch – let’s hope it’s funny.
