/Film has featured a new trailer for Kill Your Friends (not to be mistaken for your Darlings), the Britpop Wolf of Wall Street/American Psycho/other film with caricatural young/scary capitalist. Nicholas Hoult stars as a music exec trying to make another hit in the declining Britpop sound/landscape. As he begins to flounder, he decides that the best way to have another success is to murder everyone who might get ahead of him — presumably, given the title, his friends. The film will be released in England on November 6. Watch the (slightly NSFW) trailer:

You could certainly say Hoult’s character is a “dangerous man,” as, presumably, are the men of the cult-classic-that-never-was, Dangerous Men. The action movie/”rampaging gutter epic of crime, revenge, cop sex and raw power” that took the director John Rad (who died in 2007) 26 years to make never made it past festivals and small cinemas, but now Drafthouse is trying to give the film a second chance to at least woo lovers of extreme camp. It follows a woman whose husband is murdered and who, per the official synopsis, “sets out on a venomous crime spree to eradicate all trash from Los Angeles. Armed with a knife, a gun and an undying rage, she murders her way through the masculine half of the city’s populace.” Watch the trailer on Indiewire.

If you thought you’ve seen the whole Monty Python and the Holy Grail — well, you probably have, and no one will question you. But you likely haven’t seen the whole film as Terry Gilliam would have wanted it. With the recent release of the 40th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray, a series of Gilliam’s animations that were cut from the original have now been shared. Watch over on The Creators Project.

If you found True Detective‘s second season [attempt to insert insulting word that hasn’t already been used], that may have been because it never truly found itself tonally. But a recut trailer for the season suggests the greatness it could have achieved had it only realized it was meant to be a romantic comedy. The rom-com trailer for True D will tug your heartstrings — not even in a murder-y way! — and make you await the next season in hopes that it’s just a little more like Sleepless in Seattle.
