"You're here to be a human sacrifice!" Screen Media has debuted a full-length trailer for the wacky action horror film Willy's Wonderland, which we first teased last year. This is the gnarly movie about Nicolas Cage fighting evil furry animatronics. A quiet drifter is tricked into a janitorial job at the now condemned Willy's Wonderland - which seems to be mocking Chuck E. Cheese.

Official Trailer for 'Til Kingdom Come' Doc Film About US Evangelicals
"We've been waiting for that to happen for decades..." Abramorama has released an official trailer for an acclaimed documentary film titled 'Til Kingdom Come, made by journalist / filmmaker Maya Zinshtein (Forever Pure). This already premiered at a number of film festivals last year, and the film is showing in "virtual cinemas" next month. This frighteningly stark, eye-opening film takes us into the world of American Evangelicals and their (indoctrinated) connection to Israel. Pastors encourage an impoverished Kentucky community, "the forgotten people of America", to donate more to Israel in anticipation of Jesus's impending return. The film exposes the controversial bond between Evangelicals and Jews, in a story of faith, power and money, revealing how Trump’s America is led by an End-Times apocalyptic countdown. There's way too much Trump in this trailer, but it's also a reminder of how vicious religious power controls these countries.
