Best Movie Trailers of 2014

2 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Making a trailer is never an easy feat, regardless of the film being promoted.  Nearly everyone has a story of a flawed trailer that does the opposite of its job, whether it’s by giving away the entire story of the film being promoted, or by poorly using a song. However, a memorable trailer can detach itself from the film it’s tied to to become its own creation, something to be admired on its own merits. Below are the 30 best trailers released in 2014, a selection that includes everything from Westerns to Horror, proving that any movie is capable of producing a good trailer.


30) The Homesman international trailer #1

This trailer wastes no time drawing the viewer in, using distant landscape shots to establish the harshness of the land, emphasised by the way the humans appear particularly tiny. The score adds to the effect, setting the stage for the plot of the story to get introduced. »

Awfully Good: 'Twas The Night + A Christmas Story 2 (Video)

10 Alternative Breaking Bad Spin-Offs To Better Call Saul

24 December 2014 2:43 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Not long now. It’s safe to say that we’re all giddy for the premiere of Better Call Saul, and in February everybody’s favourite criminal defence lawyer returns to our screens for a much-anticipated spin-off series set to take place before the events of the breathtaking Breaking Bad.

So what do we know so far? Not a whole lot, really. AMC is typically keeping things under wraps as best as they can, and aside from an incomplete cast list (which includes Jonathan Banks reprising his role of Mike Ehrmantraut) and a couple of teaser trailers, the details of Better Call Saul are being left mostly to the imagination. We do know however that Saul’s real name is Jimmy McGill, Bryan Cranston may well direct an episode or two, Aaron Paul, Dean Norris and Anna Gunn have all had conversations with Gilligan about making appearances, and also »

How Tim League, George R. R. Martin & Indie Cinemas Helped Uncancel ‘The Interview’

23 December 2014 5:30 PM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The surprise salvage of The Interview’s release started with emails amid the chaos of Sony’s hacking crisis, sent between Alamo Drafthouse impresario Tim League, Tim Massett of Florida’s Sun-Ray Cinema, and George R.R. Martin. Yes, that George R.R. Martin, bestselling Game Of Thrones author and owner of the single-screen Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

“They were looking for a little bit of insight into the Sony situation,” League told me Tuesday after word broke that Sony would release the Seth Rogen-James Franco comedy after all – not through the major corporate-owned theater chains, but with the help of independent cinemas. “It seemed like an opportunity for Art House Convergence to get involved.”

Art House Convergence is the Sundance Institute offshoot founded in 2006 to support and promote independent and art house exhibition. After the major chains bowed out of screening The Interview and Sony »

You "Better Call Saul"

23 December 2014 10:55 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new footage from AMC's "Better Call Saul" series, debuting February 8, 2015, starring Bob Odenkirk reprising his "Breaking Bad" role as Irish lawyer 'Jimmy McGill' aka 'Saul Goodman':

"...set six years before 'Saul Goodman' meets 'Walter White', 'Jimmy McGill' is a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny...

"...and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. 

"Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is 'Mike Ehrmantraut' (Jonathan Banks). The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts 'criminal' in 'Criminal lawyer'..."

"He seems to be a pretty happy-go-lucky guy, and that makes him everything that 'Walter White' is not, " said creator Vince Gilliagn about Saul Goodman, "...and that also makes for tricky drama. When I say drama, even in a comedy, you want drama, you want tension and conflict, and a character that at heart seems at peace with himself is intrinsically undramatic. »

'Better Call Saul' Photos Introduce the Cast

22 December 2014 7:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If the premiere trailer from AMC's Better Call Saul wasn't enough for you, the cable network has debuted 17 new character photos from the Breaking Bad spin-off. While these images give us plenty of looks at Bob Odenkirk's Jimmy McGill/Saul Goodman, we also get to see more from the supporting cast, including Michael McKean's Chuck McGill, Patrick Fabian as Howard Hamlin, Rhea Seehorn as Kim Wexler and Michael Mando as Nacho. The series is set six years before Saul Goodman ever met Bryan Cranston's Walter White from the critically-acclaimed series Breaking Bad.

We know that Patrick Fabian and Rhea Seehorn's characters are lawyers from the trailer that debuted earlier today, but there is very little we know about Michael McKean's Chuck McGill and Michael Mando as Nacho. All four of these supporting characters are said to "represent both legitimate and illegitimate sides of the law, »

'Better Call Saul' Premiere Trailer Reveals New Footage

22 December 2014 2:33 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Breaking Bad star Bob Odenkirk stars as Jimmy McGill, the persona he took on before becoming Saul Goodman, in the latest trailer for AMC's spinoff Better Call Saul. Before this shady attorney represented drug kingpin Walter White (Bryan Cranston) as Saul Goodman, Jimmy was just trying to make a living, revealing to Michael McKean's Chuck McGill that, "money is the only point." We also get a look at Patrick Fabian and Rhea Seehorn as Jimmy's colleagues Howard Hamlin and Kim Wexler.

The series is set six years before Jimmy/Saul first meets Walter White, introducing fans to Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny and hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside and often against Jimmy is "fixer" Mike Erhmantraut, played by Breaking Bad's Jonathan Banks. The series tracks Jimmy's transformation into a man who puts the criminal in "criminal lawyer."

The trailer opens with Jimmy screaming that, »

‘Colbert Report’ Finale Scores Series High in Viewers

19 December 2014 2:56 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert officially got a proper send-off — at least per the Nielsen sheets.

Also Read: Emmy Winners: Bryan Cranston, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Aaron Paul, Allison Janney (Photos)

The finale of “The Colbert Report” set a series record high with 2.5 million total viewers on Thursday. The goodbye show, which was heavily star-studded, appeared to have nearly as many people singing along on stage as it apparently did watching along at home.

The half-hour series closer topped Colbert’s previous high from Oct. 29, 2008, when he pulled in 2.4 million total viewers. That show was boosted by lead-in “The Daily Show,” which welcomed President Barack Obama as guest. »

After nearly 10 years on the air, The Colbert Report ended its run Thursday with a star-studded farewell for its host, Stephen Colbert. (Or "Stephen Colbert," as it were.)

Watch the Star-Studded Musical Finale for The Colbert Report

19 December 2014 8:51 AM, PST | | See recent news »

After nine years on the air, The Colbert Report came to an end last night as host Stephen Colbert prepares to take over Late Night from David Letterman next May.  It was a fitting finale in that Colbert provided a funny and outlandish sendoff for his Colbert Report alter ego, complete with a musical finale featuring the most random assembly of celebrities ever.  Seriously, name three random people and they were probably on The Colbert Report last night singing “We’ll Meet Again.”  George Lucas?  Check.  Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?  Check.  Tom Brokaw?  Yep.  Even Big Bird showed up.  Comedy Central has now made the musical Colbert Report finale available online, so if you missed it or just want to watch again (which is totally acceptable), you can now do so. Watch the Colbert Report finale video after the jump, which also features James Franco, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Ariana Huffington, J.J. Abrams, »
