Unidentified Objects trailer depicts an unlikely duo searching for aliens

The road trip movie is a tried-and-true formula that typically depicts the main characters on a journey where they learn more about themselves along the way. From action comedies like Smokey and the Bandit and Midnight Run, to dramedie, such as Rain Man and Little Miss Sunshine, to the iconic Thelma & Louise, road trip movies have been around in Hollywood for almost a century. The latest entry in the genre is Unidentified Objects, an American indie that puts an unlikely duo together in search of the supernatural.

Peter (New Amsterdam’s Matthew August Jeffers) is an antisocial and unemployed gay man with dwarfism living in New York City. One morning, he gets a knock on his door from Winona (Flesh and Bone’s Sarah Hay), a nonconformist sex worker who needs Peter’s help, or in her case, his car. Winona pays Peter to use his car so she can visit the site of a possible alien visitation in the Canadian wilderness. Peter accompanies Winona on the journey, and the ensuing journey results in a series of unexpected interactions with “bickering lesbian cosplayers, shroom-addled survivalists, and even extraterrestrial highway cops.”

Besides Jeffers and Hay, Unidentified Objects stars Roberta Colindrez (A League of Their Own), Tara Pacheco (First Wives Club), Hamish Allan-Headley (Mayor of Kingstown), Kerry Flanagan (Sharper), John Ryan Benavides (Mimi and Mo), Dorian Perez (Big Dogs), Andrew Stevens Purdy (Meet Cute), Roy Abramsohn (Quantum Leap), and Elliot Frances Flynn (Linoleum).

Unidentified Objects in the feature directorial debut of Juan Felipe Zuleta (Faded Love). Zuleta co-wrote the script with Leland Frankel (Woke). Quiver serves as the film’s distributor.

All Quiet on the Western Front trailer exposes the horror of war
A harrowing moment in All Quiet on the Western Front.

The first adaptation of Erich Maria Remarque's classic novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, arrived in cinemas in 1930. It has been adapted to many different mediums in the 92 years since that film's release. Later this year, Netflix is offering up a new adaptation that gives All Quiet on the Western Front a modern flair that will play well come Oscar time. But if you're expecting this film to glorify war, then you've come to the wrong place. This isn't a movie about personal glory or the righteousness of patriotic fervor. This is a horror story, and war is Hell.

Kumail Nanjiani in Welcome to Chippendales.

The year may be rapidly coming to a close, but Hulu has at least one more buzzy true crime series on the docket ahead of the new year. The upcoming miniseries Welcome To Chippendales follows the unlikely story of Somen "Steve" Banerjee, an Indian immigrant who founded Chippendales in 1979. For those of you unfamiliar with Chippendales, it's a male striptease chain geared toward women. Banerjee correctly saw the potential for it to become a franchise. However, he may not have predicted just how far he was willing to go for his empire.

Santa Claus unleashes season’s beatings in the trailer for Violent Night
David Harbour is Santa Claus in Violent Night.

For several years now, Die Hard has been somewhat facetiously celebrated as a Christmas movie. And there have been all types of Die Hard variations over the years. Air Force One was "Die Hard on a plane," whereas Snakes on a Plane was "Die Hard on a plane ... with snakes." But jolly ol' Saint Nick has had enough of standing on the sidelines for this Christmas tradition. In Universal Pictures' upcoming holiday flick, Violent Night, Santa Claus is going to become his own action hero.
