Trailers of the Week: ‘Cut Throat City,’ The French Dispatch,’ ‘The Hunt’ and More


From a RZA-directed casino heist gone wrong to a Wes Anderson-imagined expatriate magazine — your weekly movie trailer roundup.


Beef House 

 Meet the Beef Boys, TV’s newest (and perhaps strangest) sitcom family with Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim at the helm. While the multi-camera aesthetic and canned laughter give nods to sitcoms like Full House, the goings-on of the Beef Boys’ household are a far cry from that of the Tanners. Tim leads a game of strip poker right at the kitchen table, Eric presents his wife with a “sexual egg,” and for an unfathomable reason, there are twenty-five gallons of mayonnaise in their refrigerator.

  Cut Throat City 

 The upcoming RZA-directed film takes us back to 2005 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina’s destruction. A group of childhood friends return to their hometown only to find out that FEMA isn’t going to cover the funds needed for the Lower Ninth Ward to rebuild. Facing scarce options and apocalyptic-level devastation, they seek the help of a notorious local gangster. Naturally, things begin to spiral. The clip teases a botched casino heist that not only brings the detectives out on their trail but puts them on the wrong side of a local warlord. Starring T.I., Wesley Snipes, Ethan Hawke, and Shameik Moore, the drama’s trailer ends with a harsh look at reality: “Katrina’s always been with us,” says a voiceover, “just had a bunch of different names.” (Apr. 10)
