Games turn deadly in Bodies Bodies Bodies trailer

We’ve always half-suspected that rich kids play decadent games when they’re away from the prying eyes of normal people. And that seems to be the basic premise of Bodies Bodies Bodies, a new black comedy that slightly veers into horror territory. Following its debut at SXSW, A24 is set to bring the film to theaters this summer. And if the first trailer is any indication, it lives up to its tagline: “This is not a safe space.”

In the footage, a group of rich young adults gathers at a mansion far from the city life, where no one will bother them as they get drunk and high. The “friends,” and we use that term loosely, have a cruel game that they call “Bodies Bodies Bodies.” It always leaves someone in tears. But this time, someone among them is making sure that their fellow players are actually dying. The humor comes from the fact that even in a life-and-death situation, these people can’t let go of their shallow personas.

Here’s the synopsis from A24:

“When a group of rich twentysomethings plan a hurricane party at a remote family mansion, a party game goes awry in this fresh and funny look at backstabbing, fake friends, and one party gone very, very wrong.”

Blood, gore, and demons return in Evil Dead Rise trailer
A woman with a bloody face holds a chainsaw in a scene from Evil Dead Rise.

The next chapter in the Evil Dead franchise takes the action from the woods to the city in Evil Dead Rise. The first trailer is bloody, gory, and full of Deadites. In other words, it's an Evil Dead movie.

Beth (I Met a Girl's Lily Sullivan) travels to Los Angeles to visit her older sister, Elie (Vikings's Alyssa Sutherland), and her three children. Elie struggles to raise the children as a single mother in their cramped L.A. apartment, so Beth's visit is much appreciated. However, the reunion is cut short when they find the Necronomicon, a book from previous Evil Dead films, in Ellie's building. The evil book unleashes the Deadites, flesh-possessing demons that wreak havoc and bring the horrors of hell to earth. As Elie becomes possessed, Beth becomes a defacto mother as she protects the children while battling the Deadites in all their bloody glory.

Brendan Fraser looks to his side in The Whale.

Brendan Fraser needed a comeback. What he got was The Whale, which may have given him the role of a lifetime. Just over two decades ago, Fraser headlined films like The Mummy and George of the Jungle, as well as an assortment of wacky comedies. Fraser also made the occasional drama, including his standout performance in Gods and Monsters. But The Whale is something else entirely. It may even give Fraser his first nomination for Best Actor at next year's Oscars.
