Here's the Official Trailer for Justin Simien's 'Dear White People'

After making waves at Sundance, getting funded through Indiegogo, and releasing a teaser trailer last month, filmmaker newcomer Justin Simien's Dear White People dropped its first official trailer yesterday.

Tommy Wiseau, star and director of the famously bad 2003 film The Room, recently announced via his website that his original sitcom The Neighbors — a project he's been working on since at least 2009 — will drop in September (on "Comedy TV," apparently). Wiseau made a website for the sitcom that includes the kind of description you'd expect, with lines like "This cocktail of characters always guarantee plenty of surprises," "The demographic is all inclusive," and the very specific "The Neighbors is a sitcom about the relationship between a group of neighbors who live in an apartment building."

Here's the Trailer for 'St. Vincent', Bill Murray's First Starring Role in Years

Bill Murray hasn't played the lead role in a movie since 2012's Hyde Park on Hudson (and since 2005's Broken Flowers before that), so it's a rarity to see a movie come along where he's the central character. His next film is St. Vincent, which just dropped its trailer today, and stars Murray as a degenerate guy who takes a well-intentioned neighbor kid under his wing. The supporting cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, Naomi Watts, Scott Adsit, and Nate Corddry, and the movie hits theaters October 24th.

Watch a Trailer for the Racial Satire 'Dear White People'

Here's the teaser trailer for Dear White People, a racial satire that's been winning critical acclaim at film festivals and hits theaters on October 17. The movie comes from newcomer Justin Simien, who in the trailer and in real life is highly critical of the types of movies that get made featuring predominantly black casts, telling Variety, "Films with predominantly white casts can come in any form, tell any story, big or small, or black films, you have the light fluffy rom-coms or Madea movies and then you have the black torture awards movie." Dear White People certainly doesn't fall into any of these categories. Here's the official description:
