'Ratchet and Clank' TV Spots Unleash the Sheepinator

4 February 2016 5:19 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's been quite some time since we've seen any footage from Ratchet & Clank, with our last glimpse coming with the second trailer released way back in October. Now that we're getting closer and closer to the April 29 release, Playstation Nation has unveiled two new TV spots, which showcases the transforming powers of a weapon known as 'The Sheepinator.' As you might have guessed, this crazy ray gun turns its targets into sheep. We're not quite sure how exactly that's useful, but The Sheepinator was a popular weapon used in the Playstation video game series this animated movie is based on.

The story centers on the title characters, Ratchet (James Arnold Taylor) and Clank (David Kaye), two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek (Paul Giamatti) from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy "lombax" who has »

Joel And Ethan Coen Rubbish Reports Of The Big Lebowski Sequel

4 February 2016 9:47 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mixed reviews and a lacklustre box office wasn’t enough to quell the impact thst Joel and Ethan Coen’s The Big Lebowski had on popular culture, and since its humble debut in ’98, both the neo-noir and Jeff Bridges’ inimitable stoner The Dude have always remained a topic of conversation, even if those fleeting reports suggesting a sequel never made it part the starting line.

While promoting their upcoming period dramedy Hail, Caesar!, both Joel and Ethan Coen confirmed that the song very much remains the same regarding a potential follow-up to The Big Lebowski – a categorical no. That’s despite actress Tara Reid dropping hints to the contrary, though the Coen Brothers poured cold water over the resurgent rumors in an interview with Variety. “Tara Reid likes to announce that just like [George] Clooney likes to announce ‘Hail, Caesar!,” Joel Coen said. “In this case, I don’t think we’ll oblige. »

No one can agree on the top 5 greatest Coen Brothers films

4 February 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As we began talking about editorial content we could publish to celebrate the release of Hail, Caesar!, the latest film from Joel and Ethan Coen, we realized that none of us had the same top five lists, and that it seems unusual for that to be the case. The Coens have had such a rich and varied career that it is impossible to pin them down to one style or one theme or one type of storytelling. Some people love their comedies. Some people love it when they get dark. Some people love the underdogs, the least-liked of their films. But what's clear is that every film they've made has its fans, and even their worst films are beloved by someone. There are few artists like the Coen Brothers, and we were delighted to get lists from each of our special guest contributors this time. The diversity of the replies »

Mary Elizabeth Winstead talks 10 Cloverfield Lane

31 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier this month Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot Productions dropped a major surprise when it release the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, the sequel / “blood relative” to the cult 2009 monster movie.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly at the SAG Awards, star Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been speaking about the secretive nature of the movie:

“There is this veil of secrecy to it from the very beginning. We were making this movie in this little bubble where nobody else knew what we were doing and there’s really only three actors in the whole thing, so it kind of felt like this really intimate experience. Now that it’s about to come out, it’s sort of crazy — like, ‘Oh yeah, people are excited to see this movie.’ I forgot that that was going to happen.”

Winstead stars in the film alongside John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr., and from the sounds of it, »

9 Film Projects That Were Rewritten to Become Sequels

30 January 2016 9:14 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We recently saw the release of the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which started life as an independent film unrelated to Cloverfield but was rewritten as a sequel (of sorts). This got us thinking about other films that were conceived as original projects but were altered by studios to become sequels to existing franchises.

When 10 Cloverfield Lane started out, it was an independent film called The Cellar, about a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who wakes up injured and locked in the bunker-like cellar of a man (John Goodman) she’s never met before. The strange man tells her that he found after an accident and brought her there to minister to her wounds but then a cataclysmic disaster ravaged the surface world and she has to stay there. She doesn’t believe him and spends the rest of the film trying to escape, while her memories of the night of her accident slowly return. »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Viral Campaign Launches, New Secrets Teased

30 January 2016 3:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi opened earlier this month, it arrived with a surprise teaser trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which many believed was a sequel to the 2008 thriller Cloverfield, a movie that arrived wrapped in just as much mystery. 10 Cloverfield Lane has since been called a distant cousin to Cloverfield. The two films are connected, but this new thriller isn't a direct sequel. Some believe it is more of an anthology film held under the Cloverfield banner. Whatever it is, it is arriving under a shroud of secrecy this March. And like Cloverfield, it is getting an extensive and somewhat bewildering viral campaign. In a recent interview, star Mary Elizabeth Winstead teased what the movie is actually about.

Speaking with EW, the actress opened up every so slightly about the tense drama, which takes place in a bomb shelter. She can't tell us much about the plot or its twists and turns. »

Trailer Trashin’: What’s Happening in the 10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer?

21 January 2016 10:15 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers. We’re in the middle of January, and it’s still slim pickings in terms of new movies, although I plan on checking out the new horror movie The Boy this weekend. But there are still cool new trailers for me to watch and analyze. This week’s column takes a look at the first trailer for the upcoming science-fiction mystery thriller 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Premise: Waking up from a car accident, a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) finds herself in the basement of a man (John Goodman) who says he’s saved her life from a chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable.

My take: In this day and age of 24/7 media coverage, it’s nearly impossible for a film to truly sneak up and surprise us. One film that did manage that was Cloverfield (2008), the found-footage giant monster film from producer J. J. Abrams, »

Top 10 Disappointing Films Of 2015

18 January 2016 2:26 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

2015 offered some terrific films for audiences – The Martian, Creed, Straight Outta Compton, Brooklyn and Star Wars: The Force Awakens to name a few. They were huge crowd-pleasers and very successful at the box office. But not every movie connected with audiences this past year, as much as we wanted them to.

Wamg takes a look at the past 12 months and the movies that we really wanted to love, but just couldn’t. Here we go with our Top 10 list of the Most Disappointing Films of 2015.

Dishonorable Mention: Seventh Son

It’s hard to decipher exactly what Jeff Bridges is saying under his accent that sounds like a cross between Gandalf and Bane from The Dark Knight Rises. And that is only one of the many problems with this film. Seventh Son is nothing but hallow, visual clutter that is cobbled together to form something that struggles to appeal to the »

New 10 Cloverfield Lane poster and plot rumours emerge

17 January 2016 3:29 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

We all got an unexpected surprise this week with the launch of a new trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane from Bad Robot, and people have instantly supposed this is a big follow up to 2008’s wonderful Cloverfield but… is it really?

J.J. Abrams Bad Robot are synonymous with secrets and anyone who knows J.J. will be very aware of his Mystery Box love so have we all been cleverly played already? The rumours say this isn’t a sequel at all and is, in fact, just a smart marketing move with the use of the word Cloverfield. But I’ll be honest here, I don’t think I care either way and the fact there’s so much secrecy makes me even more intrigued and eager to avoid spoilers before it opens. We’re living in a time of film where you can almost watch everything before it comes out »

'10 Cloverfield Lane' New Movie Poster and Trailer

16 January 2016 4:22 PM, PST | CineMovie | See recent CineMovie news »

Cloverfield gets a sequel with all new faces because everyone died in the first one. The new teaser trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane has John Goodman holding Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. in an underground bunker. But the new preview for 10 Cloverfield poses too many questions, and no answers as to what the new threat is.  And that’s how J.J. Abrams likes it. He returns as producer on the film opening March 11. Perhaps the new one-sheet and tagline for the movie bares a clue; "Monsters Come In Many Forms" which could refer to John Goodman's character if indeed he is holding them hostage.

'10 Cloverfield Lane' Is Not 'Cloverfield 2', But Part of an Anthology?

16 January 2016 2:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, fans were treated to a surprise trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which many have speculated is a sequel to the 2008 hit Cloverfield. There is still very little we know about the story, but since both 10 Cloverfield Lane and Cloverfield were produced by J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot, many assume there is some sort of connection between the two. Earlier today, a user cleared the air about this mysterious project, revealing that it may not be a direct sequel, but it is set in the same Cloverfield universe.

"This film was originally made under the names Valencia and The Cellar for Paramount's Insurge division (a subsidiary for films made for under 5 million dollars like The Devil Inside), and when Paramount closed it down, this movie (shot and completed) was thrown out to the wind and orphaned. Paramount bought it back up and had Daniel Casey and Damien Chazelle do some re-writes »

Cara Delevingne Shares 'Valerian' Behind-the-Scenes Sneak Peek

16 January 2016 8:37 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets comic book isn't as a well known as the Marvel and DC titles, so when it comes to secrecy on set, there is little in trade for making sure people actually know what this is by the time it hits theaters in summer 2017. Helping to promote the movie firsthand is star Cara Delevingne, who has been constantly giving us sneak peeks behind the curtain ever since production started a few weeks ago. She is back on her personal Instagram page today, and she is showing a quick video of everyone hard at work, including herself.

Principle photography started on the Luc Besson written and directed film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets the first week of January. The movie stars Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne, and is slated for release July 21, 2017. Luc Besson based his screenplay on the French »

10 Cloverfield Lane Trailer From Dan Trachtenberg and J.J. Abrams Arrives (Updated With Poster)

16 January 2016 5:41 AM, PST | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

I promise you will never think about the classic song, 'I Think We're Alone Now,' the same way again after watching the surprise trailer for Paramount and Bad Robot's 10 Cloverfield Lane.

What exactly is 10 Cloverfield Lane? Is it Cloverfield 2? Sort of, but no one outside the inner circle knows precisely the thematic connection. Executive producer J.J. Abrams has already described it as a "blood relative" of the original Cloverfield sans the shaky-cam shooting style. Whether that menacing monster appears in this new iteration is being kept under wraps.

Director Dan Trachtenberg shot this film starring John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. under obviously a different name to preserve its secrecy, though Trachtenberg was open on Twitter about working on a Bad Robot project. The studios and creative minds came up with the brilliant idea to keep the name and concept under wraps and unveil »

J.J. Abrams Drops Surprise 'Cloverfield' Sequel Trailer

15 January 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ok, music industry and your surprise albums — J.J. Abrams is answering with a surprise movie.

In the oodles of spare time he had while directing "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Abrams apparently produced a surprise, top-secret sequel to 2008's monster smash, "Cloverfield." The follow-up is titled "10 Cloverfield Lane," and Abrams' Bad Robot production company and Paramount just unveiled the first trailer.

Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, and John Gallagher Jr., "10 Cloverfield Lane" is described by Abrams to Collider as a "blood relative" of the earlier film. The project, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, had been known as "Valencia," but its connection to "Cloverfield" comes as a complete surprise. The trailer doesn't give much away — Winstead's character is locked up in a basement/bomb shelter by a captor (Goodman) who claims to be shielding her from the dangers of the outside world.

"10 Cloverfield Lane" hits theaters March 11.

First trailer & poster for ’10 Cloverfield Lane’

15 January 2016 1:09 PM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

What’s that you say? A film no one knew about releasing it’s first trailer and poster. Looks that way! Yes, the ever-prolific J.J. Abrams has seemingly not rested on his laurels post-Star Wars, producing a sequel to his found-footage hit Cloverfield – entitled 10 Cloverfield Lane.

This “sequel” (which looks to be taking place at the same time as the first film) is helmed by Dan Trachtenberg, who many will know as one of the hosts of the much-missed web series The Totally Rad Show and director of the short film Portal: No Escape. Whilst little is known about the film beyomd this trailer and poster, what we do know is that 10 Cloverfield Lane – which stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman and John Gallagher Jr. – will be release in the UK on April 8th.

Watch: Trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Secret ‘Cloverfield’ Follow-Up

15 January 2016 12:48 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After surprising audiences with numerous cinematic twists over the years, Paramount Pictures and J.J. AbramsBad Robot have pulled another fast one on fans with the trailer release of the studio’s mystery movie, which is tied to another Abrams hit.

“10 Cloverfield Lane,” previously titled “Valencia,” stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr.

Abrams has since confirmed that the film, directed by Dan Trachtenberg, is set in the same universe as his 2008 monster movie “Cloverfield.”

“The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of ‘Cloverfield,'” Abrams said in a statement to Collider. “The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

According to a log line released by the studio when the film went into production, the story follows a young woman (Winstead), who wakes up in »

The Return of Cloverfield!

It’s been eight long years since the Statue of Liberty’s head barreled down one of New York’s steel canyons in Matt ReevesCloverfield. And in those eight years there have been whispers, rumors, and innuendo about a sequel.

While it looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer for a legit Part 2, J.J. Abrams has at least gifted us with a teaser trailer for something called 10 Cloverfield Drive, which the Star Wars: The Force Awakens director calls a “blood relative” to the hit found-footage Sci-Fi thriller. Being cagey as usual, Abrams told Collider.com, “The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

Now, what “blood relative” means is up for debate, but what we do »
