The Protégé, Riders of Justice, The Sparks Brothers, The Killing of Two Lovers, There Is No Evil

The Protégé     HD720p 93MB
Action thriller directed by Martin Campbell (Green Lantern, Casino Royale, The Mask of Zorro). Rescued as a child by the legendary assassin Moody (Samuel L. Jackson) and trained in the family business, Anna (Maggie Q) is the world's most skilled contract killer. But when Moody - the man who was like a father to her and taught her everything she needs to know about trust and survival - is brutally killed, Anna vows revenge. As she becomes entangled with an enigmatic killer (Michael Keaton) whose attraction to her goes way beyond cat and mouse, their confrontation turns deadly and the loose ends of a life spent killing will weave themselves even tighter.
Lists about 20 executive producers at the end and looks highly derivative. But maybe it's still a diverting watch.

Riders of Justice     HD720p 94MB
US trailer for Darkly comedic action thriller from Denmark. Markus (Mads Mikkelsen), who has to go home to his teenage daughter, Mathilde, when his wife dies in a tragic train accident. It seems like an accident until a mathematics geek (Nikolaj Lie Kaas), who was also a fellow passenger on the train, and his two colleagues (Nicolas Bro, Lars Brygmann) show up. Directed by Anders Thomas Jensen (Adam's Apples, The Green Butchers, Men & Chicken).
Now in limited release in the US and already available on demand at some places.

The Green Knight, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Stillwater, Undergods, Luca

The Green Knight     HD720p 35MB
Full trailer for this fantasy adventure based on the Arthurian legend, The Green Knight that tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur's reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Barry Keoghan and Sarita Choudhury are also part of the cast. Written and directed by David Lowery (Pete's Dragon, The Old Man & the Gun, Ain't Them Bodies Saints).

Venom: Let There Be Carnage     HD720p 106MB
Full trailer for the sequel that sees the return of Tom Hardy as the lethal protector Venom. Otherwise it says, "plot unknown." Michelle Williams, Woody Harrelson and Reid Scott also return, new cast additions are Naomie Harris and Stephen Graham. Andy Serkis (Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, Breathe) takes over directing duty.
I can't say that I was expecting that there will be a sequel.

Stillwater     HD720p 103MB
Thriller drama that follows an American oil-rig roughneck (Matt Damon) from Oklahoma who travels to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter (Abigail Breslin), in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit. Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated legal system, he builds a new life for himself in France as he makes it his personal mission to exonerate his daughter. Directed by Thomas McCarthy (Spotlight, The Station Agent, Win Win). But it feels a lot like recent Clint Eastwood films.
Apparently "loosely based on the Amanda Knox story", but I'm not sure if that is really relevant.

Undergods     HD720p 99MB
Anthology film that will take you on an darkly humorous, ill-fated journey through a dystopian Europe, where stories and characters intertwine in the most doomed way possible. In a futuristic, post-apocalyptic landscape, K (Johann Myers) and Z (Géza Röhrig) roam the streets on the lookout for corpses and possibly even something more valuable: fresh meat.

Maya Rudolph and Jim Gaffigan will also lend their voices.
Will start streaming on Disney+ in June 18th.

A Quiet Place Part II, Last Letter from Your Lover, The Paper Tigers, Benedetta, Oxygen, Eternals

A Quiet Place Part II     HD720p 71MB
A new, still very noisy trailer for the sequel that got delayed for obvious reasons. It will now start playing in theatres at the end of the month.
Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

Trailer seems to reveal a lot. Set during a different time period, but there was a movie called Possession with a similar premise starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Aaron Eckhart. The new one will start streaming on Netflix July 23rd. Trailer version without German subs.

The Paper Tigers     HD720p 91MB
Feelgood action comedy about three kung fu disciples, who were inseparable as teenagers. Fast forward 25 years, and each has grown into a washed-up middle-aged man seemingly one kick away from pulling a hamstring - and not at all preoccupied with thoughts of martial arts or childhood best friends. But when their old master is murdered, the trio reunites, soon learning that avenging their sifu will require conquering old grudges (and a dangerous hitman still armed with ample knee cartilage) if they are to honorably defend his legacy.
Now in limited release in the US and available on demand.

Benedetta     HD1080p 32MB
Trailer from France that would clearly be labelled "redband" in prudish countries like the US for this titillating religious drama. A 17th-century nun (Virginie Efira) in Italy suffers from disturbing religious and erotic visions. She is assisted by a companion (Daphne Patakia), and the relationship between the two women develops into a romantic love affair. Charlotte Rampling and Lambert Wilson are also part of the past. Directed by Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Elle, Showgirls).
Looks like Verhoeven tries to leave his mark in the nunsploitation genre. All in the name of high art, of course. It will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in July.

Oxygen     HD1080p 32MB
If the current pandemic doesn't provide you with enough anxiety, a trailer for a claustrophobic thriller from France about a woman (Mélanie Laurent) who wakes in a cryogenic chamber with no recollection of how she got there, and must find a way out before running out of air.

Documentary narrated by Laurie Anderson that showcases the music of and rare interviews with female electronic pioneers.
