The reboot of Godzilla has come and gone on the big screen, and it's now available to purchase on Blu-Ray & DVD, and while the film didn't impress some audiences, it still ended up landing director Gareth Edwards a gig directing the first Star Wars spin-off (which may be about a heist obtaining the plans to the original Death Star). While some might have a problem with Godzilla as a movie, you can't deny that the King of Monsters and all the creatures he fights have never looked better, thanks to some truly spectacular visual effects by the company Mpc. Now a visual effects reel breaks down how they came together. Watch! Here's a visual effects reel for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla from Mpc (via Legendary Pictures): Godzilla, being directed by Gareth Edwards (of Monsters), comes from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce, Max Borenstein and Frank Darabont. The cast is lead by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, »

More highly anticipated than the rodent guest speaker at a cat convention, broadcaster AMC have revealed the premiere date for Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul. February 8th will see Bob Odenkirk’s super-slippery Saul Goodman ply his trade at the wrong end of the justice spectrum. Viewers only have to wait 24 hours for the next episode before the show sets out its stall on Monday nights. But is Saul going to be Saul, or Jimmy McGill, the previous identity shown in publicity material? Charlie Collier (AMC President) has revealed how it’s going to play out:
While some element of flashing back and forth has been mentioned, this is confirmation the prequel is going to go right back to Goodman’s beginnings. »

"...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...So we’ve been thinking »

Time to get excited, Breaking Bad fans! AMC has more info about the Breaking Bad spinoff series, Better Call Saul, like the premiere date, and we're breaking down everything we know about the show so far. If you're worried about the success of the spinoff, you may find some comfort in AMC President Charlie Collier's comments: "We are enjoying the process on Saul and share a focus on making it a true television event. No half measures." So what's it all about? Who's in, and who's out? Keep reading for all the details. Where It Will Be Set The spinoff is a prequel, taking place before all the action on Breaking Bad, specifically, six years before Saul meets Walter White. Producers have said the show has some flexibility; Peter Gould said, "One of the great things about having a timeline which is flexible is that perhaps some of »
One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.
Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.
So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.
Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

"This February, during AMC's first ever two-night series premiere event, we're going to introduce Jimmy McGill to the world.

"Huge thanks to Vince Gilligan, Peter Gould, Bob Odenkirk, our partners at Sony, and the entire team. We're thrilled to be cooking together again. »

A quite wonderful mash-up of Breaking Bad and Frozen, as Walter White sings 'Do You Want To Build A Meth Lab'
This video below contains spoilers for Breaking Bad, albeit in animated form.
One year on from the release of Disney's Frozen, and there's been no shortage of YouTube mash-ups based around its music. However, this has to rank as one of our favourites. It takes the Do You Want To Build A Snowman? song from the beginning of Frozen, and mixes it up with some animated Walter White.
The end result? Do You Want To Build A Meth Lab? It's probably best we stop talking, and let you see this one for yourself. It's really quite glorious.
Wonder if Bryan Cranston will come along and sing it for real?

Whether you are a filmmaker, or one of the Sundance programmers whose task it is to identify the films that make up a line-up, it is indeed the most wonderful, panic-filled and nerve racking time of the year. The 31st edition of the Sundance Film Festival kicks off on January 22nd with Park City and Salt Lake City playing host to some of the more innovative, thought-provoking narrative and non-fiction films of 2015. Last year, a Jenga tall order of 4,057 features and 8,161 shorts were submitted. Now let’s think about those numbers for a second.
Twenty years ago, Terry Zwigoff’s Crumb claimed the Grand Jury Prize Documentary award, Living in Oblivion‘s Tom Dicillo was honored with the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award, and Edward Burns’ micro-budgeted The Brothers McMullen (there is a read-worthy, lively, eleventh hour account on how it was submitted to the fest in Ted Hope’s “Hope »

It’s been twenty-five years since Woody Harrelson originally hosted “Saturday Night Live,” and more than two decades since his last appearance on the show. In that time, he’s gone from "lovable bartender on 'Cheers'" to someone who is simultaneously part of one of Hollywood’s biggest film franchises (“The Hunger Games”) and co-lead in one of 2014’s most talked-about television shows (“True Detective”). What’s hosting a live sketch-comedy show on top of that already stuffed year? I’d be shocked to not see a parody of at least one (if not both) of those aforementioned pieces of pop culture, but mostly I want to see Harrelson let his comedy freak flag fly with this cast and see what happens. As always, I’ll be grading in sketch in real time. As always, you shouldn’t worry too much about the grades. We’re all here because we love “SNL, »

Emma Stone made her triumphant Broadway debut Tuesday, as Sally Bowles in the Tony-winning musical Cabaret. She stars alongside Tony winner Alan Cumming in a 12-week run of the Roundabout Theatre Company production.
Emma's boyfriend Andrew Garfield was reportedly in the audience as the 26-year-old actress made her first bow on Broadway. The Social Network actor has his own time to shine on Broadway in 2012 when he appeared in the revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman alongside the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

It’s been a hot week or two for movie and television news, with big things coming from the movie world as the run up to the Christmas season begins in earnest. There have been updates from the real behemoths in the world of movie entertainment, with both Marvel and DC unleashing new information about their film and TV properties.
Most notably, Age Of Ultron got itself a nice little extended trailer, and the new swathe of DC films are beginning to get solid details, including some very, very, very exciting casting news. As more and more actors jump onto the comic movie bandwagon and tie themselves in for a lucrative ten year, multi-film deal, the competition is hotting up as the number of roles diminishes quickly!
Away from comic specific news (well, Marvel and DC anyway), Sony has some fantastic information circulating about the new Spider-Man cinematic universe that they’re attempting to build, »

A new clip from Dumb and Dumber To has been released, and it features a great cameo that I thought was awesome. I will let you know the the image above is not a spoiler, because you can't really see who is behind the mask. In fact, his face isn't even shown in the clip. I had no idea that this actor was even in the movie, and it seems like a lot of the critics who have seen already seen the film didn't know who it was. Watch the clip and see if you can tell who the actor is. In case you can't figure it out, I've posted the name of the actor below the video.
