After making waves at Sundance, A24 has released the first trailer for The Last Black Man in San Francisco. In the film, Jimmie Fails plays a cinematic version of himself who goes back to the Victorian-style home of childhood in San Francisco. The house was built by his grandfather in 1946 but is now under new ownership, leaving Fails to imagine the community as though it had never changed. Directed by Joe Talbot, the film also stars Jonathan Majors, Rob Morgan, Tichina Arnold, and Danny Glover and will be in theaters June 14, 2019.
If you think you've ever tried wasabi, think again. Most sushi restaurants serve a concoction of horseradish and Chinese mustard tinted with green food coloring. Even the most authentic sushi restaurants serve the fraudulent condiment. The reason is the real stuff is one of the most expensive crops in the world. In this short document, eighth generation farmer Shigeo Iida shares the tradition of growing Wasabia Japonica.

The Movember Foundation has been raising money for men's physical and mental health issues since 2003, using the power of community to help spread awareness. Now they're teaming with Swiss watchmaker Oris and Yankees manager Aaron Boone — someone who knows a thing or two about the power of a team — on the Movember Edition watch. Based on Oris' iconic Chronoris model, it has a 39mm stainless steel case and a black dial with rose gold-plated hour and minute hands. It also features an orange second hand, and white indices that come together to create a pleasing vintage feel. An Oris 733 automatic movement powers the timepiece, which arrives on either a brown leather strap with a Movember signature mustache imprint or a stainless steel bracelet. It's packaged in a special presentation box with a leather travel pouch and a more casual red and white NATO fabric strap — a perfect bonus for those who know the importance of getting out and spending time in their community.

During the height of the Cold War, the US government built 1,000 nuclear ICBM silos across the country, mostly in the Great Plains. As the threat of nuclear war with the Soviets waned, over half of the sites were decommissioned — making them ideal doomsday bunkers for the ultra-rich and paranoid. The Survival Condo Project repurposes these sites built to withstand sustained nuclear war, converting them into condos that can support a family nearly indefinitely.
Never underestimate humanity's ability to make anything into a specialized profession. At $29 per cup, Sey Coffee in Brooklyn serves one of the most expensive cups of coffee you can find. It's the result of years of testing and communicating with coffee growers on a personal level, all in the name of extracting the best from the beans. The world of high-end coffee is the end-result of the Starbucks revolution, with small businesses and enthusiasts taking one of the world's favorite beverages into the rarified air of wine.
To kick off the launch of Uncrate Issue 05 and the return of our favorite not-smartphone, the Punkt MP02, we've partnered with Punkt, Grand Classics, and Mark Ronson to host a VIP screening of 1983's The King of Comedy, staring Robert De Niro. Personally selected by Mark Ronson, the film is a timely choice given its direct influence on this month's release of Joker, and as De Niro also appears in Joker as homage to his character in The King of Comedy. On October 16th at the Public Arts venue, at New York's Public Hotel, a select group of guests and friends of Mark Ronson, Punkt, Grand Classics, and Uncrate gathered for the screening and cocktails. Punkt, maker's of minimalist technology, chose to partner with Grand Classics on this screening due the increasingly frustrating effect of smartphones on the film community. Often used to snap pictures that leak a film's plot details well before release, smartphones have become a drag on sets around the world. Punkt's MP02 phone, a camera-less work of art, fixes not only this issue but allows anyone to disconnect from the distracting while remaining connected via a good old fashioned phone call or basic text message. Animoji's need not apply.
Inspired by one of the most iconic military timepieces ever created, the Pilot Pioneer is a reinterpretation with real character. The mechanical hand-wound watch takes cues from the legendary Hamilton W10, a watch produced for the British Royal Air Force in 1973 and carries with it the form and function that made it memorable. Each timepiece features a black textured dial that's as easy to read as it was for pilots in the 70's, with luminous sword hands and numerals. It also has a sleek vintage-inspired case that integrates seamlessly into the lugs for added comfort. The new release also adds hardened mineral crystal with double anti-reflective coating for an extra layer of toughness. The Pilot Pioneer is powered by the H-50 hand-winding movement with 80 hours of power reserve and is finished with your choice of a gray textile or brown leather NATO strap.
