Burial trailer pits the Russians vs. the Nazis in WWII

In IFC Midnight’s new film, Burial, it’s 1945 in Berlin, and Adolf Hitler is dead. WWII is nearing the end, but there is still work left to do. A group of Russian soldiers is given what they think is a simple task: Get Hitler’s dead body out of Germany. However, the soldiers learn they’re being followed, and the Germans want Hitler back.

At the center of the fictional story is Brana Vasilyeva, a female Russian soldier played by Charlotte Vega. In the trailer, Vasilyeva is worried about the mission and appears to be on edge at all times, knowing that Hitler’s remains are of the utmost importance to a lot of people, especially among the Germans. When their truck breaks down and the soldiers enter the town for supplies, the band of soldiers begins to realize they are being followed.

The Russians are being stalked by a group of German soldiers known as the “Werewolves.” The werewolves were a group of Nazi partisans tasked with harassing and fighting the Allied forces as they advanced through Germany. Their guerilla warfare tactics mirrored those of a werewolf, hence the name. The werewolves ambush the Russian unit as they attempt to steal Hitler’s body. However, Vasilyeva leads the remaining soldiers in one last stand because in her words, “The war is not over.”

Starring alongside Vega are Barry Ward, Dan Renton Skilner, Bill Milner, Harriet Walter, and Harry Potter’s Tom Felton. Burial is directed by Ben Parker, a British film director best known for his 2016 survival film, The Chamber.

New Legend of Tarzan trailer pits the king of the jungle against countless enemies
new legend of tarzan trailer 2 still

The jungle is getting wilder in the new trailer for the Warner Bros. film The Legend of Tarzan. Released today, the new preview paints a clearer picture of the dangerous situation the king of the jungle is drawn into years after making a life for himself in England. The threat is enough to make anyone cower, but luckily, as is pointed out, this hero is "no normal man."

The trailer, like the first, shows the incredible strength and skill of Tarzan (played by Alexander Skarsgard), even after having become "civilized." We see him swinging himself around the vines of the jungle like he never left. (It must be just like riding a bike -- you never forget how to do it.) New footage takes the preview beyond that, though, and we see more of Tarzan's backstory, including his parents, and the enormous danger to him now.
