Coming Soon Trailers: Super Troopers 2, Traffik, I Feel Pretty.
Hollywood is getting their counter-programing in early with a pair of comedies and a thriller the week before Avengers Infinity War.
The long awaited and crowd funded sequel to Super Troopers lands on 4/20 this week, as well as an Amy Schumer comedy, and a thriller. It will be interesting to see how well Super Troopers 2 does, as the Broken Lizard brand of comedies tends to be rather niche…but a successful kickstarter campaign may motivate fans who usually wait for their films on streaming to make a pilgrimage to the theater.
Despite all of the advertising online, You Were Never Really Here is only in limited release this weekend (not exactly my definition of “everywhere April 20th”, Amazon!) That’s a shame, since this Joaquin Phoenix crime drama looks spectacular.
Finally, we have a more sedate weekend on the streaming market. There is a documentary about how the police deal with rape kits and sexual assault, a pair of horror movies, and a murder mystery.
Super Troopers 2.
After getting canned for their antics, five Vermont state troopers are given a second chance. This time around, they’re assigned north of the border in a quiet Canadian town that it turns out was supposed to be part of the US all along. The natives aren’t happy with their new American law officers, including a smuggling ring that would prefer to see the troopers sent packing.
Two couples have their quiet vacation retreat crashed by a vicious gang who are looking to drive away anyone who might have witnessed their operations.
I Feel Pretty.
After a blow to the head, a formerly shy and unsure young woman becomes convinced that she is the most beautiful and capable woman alive.
You Were Never Really Here.
A contract killer with a reputation for extreme methods is hired by a politically connected client to retrieve his daughter from a human trafficking ring. When the killer takes a personal interest in the case, he is drawn into a web of deceit.
