The concept of vampires has become a pop culture punching bag thanks to a deranged Mormon lady with terrible grammar skills. Back in the day, director Neil Jordan directed one of the best vampire movies, INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and he is continuing his love for the mythical creature in his new movie, BYZANTIUM. Thanks to the Apple Trailers site, we have the full length trailer. Check it out below.
We got a few seconds of his crazy eyes in the epic trailer, but here, we find out a little more of his intentions. This trailer also shows more/different pieces of action that he haven't seen in previous ones. Oh yes, and it has a bit more Amy Adams.

About a year ago, we kept hearing rumblings of this horror anthology film coming out of Sundance called V/H/S. So we trekked down to the Oak Cliff Film festival to watch it. We gave it mixed reviews, with Javi not caring for it and me being a lukewarm. Then, of course as with most horror films, a sequel must come out.
However, rumblings about V/H/S 2 has become increasing positive. It seems that the film makers heard the complaints and have fixed the problems the first had. Instead of five short films, there are only four, and the bookends is more cohesive. Plus, the segments have some fantastic directors: Adam Wingard (YOU'RE NEXT), Jason Eisener (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN), Timo Tjahjanto (ABC'S OF DEATH), Gareth Evans (THE RAID), and Gregg Hale and Eduardo Sanchez (THE BLAIR WITH PROJECT).
Check out both SFW and NSFW trailers after the break.

While I was not too keen on the previous KINGS OF SUMMER trailer. It definitely seemed to catering to the standard indie arthouse theater crowd. This new trailer, courtesy of Funny or Die, is the closest thing that replicates the experience of watching this movie. I particularly love the way it takes the beat that kids are banging on the pipes and transitions to a rap song. But enough of me talking. Check out the totes NSFW trailer below.
