When I first saw a clip from the Miles Teller/J.K. Simmons film Whiplash, I thought it would be a dramatic film with light comedic highlights. Out of context, that scene seemed like a fun little moment that could liven up what was being described as "Full Metal Jacket at Julliard." It's not that hard of a stretch, as both actors have shown proficiency with the comedic arts, but they've also handled some of the much heavier stuff. We now have the first trailer for Whiplash, and I'm pleased to say that I was wrong. This film is made of some of that much heavier stuff, and it looks so much more intriguing because of it. Yahoo premiered the Whiplash trailer, which tells the story of Andrew Nyman . a young jazz drummer who wants to be "one of the greats." To get to that point, he's going to have »
Apparently Fox decided not to bring any marketing for The Fantastic Four to Comic-Con this weekend, even though the Josh Trank-directed picture is currently shooting in Louisiana and will debut before next year's convention. However, a very unofficial image has leaked out into the interwebs that shows what is apparently the film's new version of The Thing. Jamie Bell is playing the rocky humanoid hero, aka Ben Grimm, and thankfully it looks like he'll be doing so through motion capture. It looks pretty good, but the bar was previously set laughably low by poor Michael Chiklis' rock suit in the last effort. Hit the jump to check it out. Also starring Michael B. Jordan as Human Torch, Kate Mara as Invisible Girl, Miles Teller as Mr. Fantastic, and Toby Kebbell as Dr. Doom, The Fantastic Four is set to open June 19, 2015. Here's a look at the (top half, »

Fox has aroused our curiosity at its Comic-Con panel last night by opting not to include anything for Josh Trank’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, which finds Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell stepping into the key roles of Reed Richards/Mr. Fantastic, Sue Storm/The Invisible Woman, Johnny Storm/The Human Torch and Ben Grimm/The Thing (respectively). However, we may get a few scoops out of the tentpole yet.
A new image (above) has hit the web, depicting what looks to be the the reference CGI bust of the Thing being used on Trank’s film. A mysterious Twitter account called @justifiedfilms, which has since been deleted, tweeted out the pic, which of course has been immortalized on the web. For those who don’t know, a reference bust is essentially a placeholder marker intended for the computer animators, who use it to then »

As promised by writer-producer Simon Kinberg, The Fantastic Four was absent from 20th Century Fox’s Hall H presentation at Comic-Con yesterday. However, fans wanting to get a glimpse of Marvel’s First Family may be interested in an image that has arrived online through Justified Films on Twitter, which claims to show how Jamie Bell’s Ben Grimm will appear as The Thing in the Josh Trank-directed reboot. Take a look via Cbm…
The Fantastic Four is set for release on June 19th 2015, with a cast that includes Miles Teller (Divergent) as Mr. Fantastic, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) as the Invisible Woman, Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) as the Human Torch, Jamie Bell (Nymphomaniac) as The Thing, Toby Kebbell (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Doctor Doom, Reg E. Cathey (The Wire) as Dr. Storm, and Tim Blake Nelson (The Incredible Hulk) as Harvey Elder.

Director Josh Trank was rumored to be bringing The Fantastic Four reboot cast to Hall H today as a surprise during the Fox panel. That didn't happen. But we may have a special treat for fans anyway. It seems a disgruntled crewmember has taken a spy pic of The Thing, sharing it on Twitter. Take a look:

Is this what Jamie Bell will look like when he transforms into The Thing? We're not sure, but it's a pretty good fake if that's what it is. The above picture appears to be a set sculpt of Ben Grimm after he transforms into his mighty alter ego. It will be used for lighting reference while shooting against green screen, and »
Back in May we showed you a very intense clip from Whiplash featuring J.K. Simmons throwing a chair at Miles Teller. Now take that scene and turn it up to 11 because holy hell this fill trailer might make your stomach turn. Writer/director Damien Chazelle’s Sundance award-winning drama is on the top of my must-see movies this year and if our own Chris Bumbray’s review is any indication, it’s going to be worth checking out. He mentioned that Simmons “has »

Whiplash has released its first trailer.
Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, it follows a young jazz drummer (Teller) fighting to succeed in an exclusive conservatory.
But the tutelage of his ruthless instructor (Simmons) might either make or break him.
The film won the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize for the Us dramatic category at Sundance.
Read our Whiplash review - "savagely funny, gripping and exhilarating"
Whiplash will open on October 10 in the Us. A UK release date is yet to be announced. »
Whiplash was my favorite movie at Sundance this year, and it's still easily one of the best movies that I've seen all year. A trailer for this amazing film has finally been released online and you need to watch it. This is one of those movies that everyone needs to see, it's just so damn good! It's got an amazing story, strong characters and it's ridiculously intense.
The movie stars Miles Teller as Andrew Neyman, a young jazz drummer who attends one of the top music schools in the country under the guidance of the school’s fearsome maestro of jazz named Terence Fletcher, played by J.K. Simmons.
Both of these actors give the best performances of their careers in this movie. Make sure to read our review of it here. Now watch the trailer! The movie is set to be released on October 10th.

Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash garnered immense acclaim at Sundance and only improved its stellar rep after being included in the Cannes Directors’ Fortnight. By all accounts, it’s one of the very best musical dramas in recent memory, thanks to its tight direction, thrilling story, dramatic tone and wholly compelling performances from Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. And with its participation in the Toronto International Film Festival now set, something tells me that we’re going to be talking about Whiplash all the way up until its theatrical release in October.
An extremely tense and compelling new trailer for the movie is making the rounds online, keeping the focus squarely on Simmons’ vicious and ruthless band conductor and Teller’s struggling musical prodigy. Both performances look superb, and Chazelle’s script seems primed to provide a terrific showcase for both actors.
If I’m counting correctly, Teller has had exactly »

Drum roll please… Whiplash, the Sundance wowing, Grand Jury prize winning, buzz gathering indie has released its first trailer. The debut of director Damien Chazelle (who also won the jury prize at Sundance last year for the short film that grew into this feature), Whiplash is the story of a teenage jazz drummer and his brilliant/bullish/bonkers teacher. Miles Teller (Divergent, That Awkward Moment, soon to be Mr Fantastic…) plays musical prodigy Andrew Neyman to J.K. Simmons’ ruthless Mr Fletcher – an orchestra leader who seems to take...

One this year’s most critically acclaimed and eagerly-anticipated festival films, Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash has debuted its first trailer online, and you can see a glimpse below of what all the fuss has been about.
After its award-winning debut at this year’s Sundance, which then picked up more steam with some very good word of mouth at Cannes, Whiplash has been getting some of the best reviews of the year so far on its festival run.
Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now, Fantastic Four) and J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man, Terminator) are the leads in the film, which tells the story of a young jazz drummer (Teller) who aspires to be the best, but finds himself pushed to the limit, both mentally and physically by his new teacher, played by Simmonds.
From the first look at the trailer, it certainly looks like a powerhouse of a film, with a double-whammy of performances from the two leads, »

After winning both the Us Grand Jury Award and the Audience Award at the year’s Sundance Film Festival, news on Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash (based on the director’s short film) has been pretty quiet. Luckily we now have a trailer for the film, which stars the up-and-coming Miles Teller as a young expert drummer attempting to join one of America’s most prestigious jazz orchestras, and the always-great J.K. Simmons as his sadistic band instructor. The film looks much more intense than one might expect, as Simmons’ methods are brutal and abusive, and will no doubt have major repercussions on Teller’s psyche and relationship to the craft he holds near and dear to him. The film also features Paul Reiser, who we don’t see much of anymore, so it is nice to see him around. Whiplash opens in Us theaters on October 10, 2014.

On the same day as the release of highly-anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer, Sony Classics has unveiled the first official trailer for “Whiplash,” starring Miles Teller as a young drummer and J.K. Simmons as his abusive instructor.
The film won both the Audience Award and the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and played in the Directors Fortnight at Cannes. It’s scheduled to be screened in the Special Presentations section at the Toronto International Film Festival before opening in theaters on Oct. 10.
The trailer includes Simmons punishing Teller verbally — “If you deliberately sabotage my band, I will gut you like a pig” — and giving him a loud unseen slap.

Do you miss the days when J.K. Simmons was a sadistic, sociopath prison rapist? Nowadays, he’s not so much into the dangerous manipulation and sex abuse – not when there’s a steady line of cop, military and general “authority figure” roles that let Simmons speak to us with his particular manner of sarcastic wisdom. But all those lectures on what we don’t know about our insurance have gotten a little stale. It’s time for Simmons to reclaim his rightful place on the “please stop screaming at me, sir” throne. He’ll do so with Whiplash, this year’s Sundance darling that stars Miles Teller as a young jazz drummer who just wants to make it big, man, and Simmons as the big man who will guide Teller to his dreams of being the next Buddy Rich. Oh, and Simmons’ preferred method of musical instruction is screaming so close to your face that his saliva »

What does it take to become a legend? How much strain, anxiety, and suffering does a person have to endure to achieve perfection, to rise to the highest echelons of their craft? How much must a person sacrifice? Most importantly, when the dust settles and they’ve met their goals, is the cost of greatness really worth it? These are the core questions posed by Whiplash, 2014′s Sundance Film Festival Grand Jury prize and Audience Award winner, which has received its first trailer.
The film, which is on its way to theaters for a fall 2014 release, comes courtesy of Damien Chazelle. It’s his sophomore effort following his 2009 debut, and the second screenplay he has credits on this year to focus on the competitive, cutthroat world of top tier musicianship (following March’s Grand Piano). Whiplash promises to be much ...

You’ve likely already seen the first clip from Whiplash, the Sundance award-winner that comes bearing positive buzz and plenty of praise for director Damien Chazelle and stars Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons. The initial trailer, which shows more of the film’s tone, is online courtesy of Yahoo!.Teller is Andrew Neyman, an ambitious 19 year-old jazz drummer who attends a high-profile music conservatory, where legendary teacher Terence Fletcher (Simmons) rules the roost.But though Fletcher initially comes across as an encouraging mentor, Andrew discovers that reaching for perfection comes with a price, as Fletcher is actually hot-tempered, oft-maniacal bully. Soon, Andrew is suffering under Fletcher’s yoke, driving himself to the limit and worrying those around him.Featuring Melissa Benoist, Austin Sowell, Paul Reiser and Jayson Blair among its cast, Whiplash is set for release in the States on October 10. It’s still frustratingly listed as simply "2014" over here, »
After winning the Audience Award and Grand Jury prize at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival it was clear that Whiplash is definitely one to take note of. Today we bring you the brand new trailer and, boy, does this look intense.
Directed by Damien Chazelle, Whiplash sees Miles Teller (That Awkward Moment) play Andrew Neyman, a good – but not great – jazz drummer, hired as part of hardass Terence Fletcher’s (J.K. Simmons) band. As Andrew starts to grow and progress as a musician, Terence pushes him further and further, teetering on the edge of motivation and abuse, sanity and insanity. Melissa Benoist (Glee) co-stars.
I’m used to seeing Simmons play the laid-back, funny guy, so to see him slap someone round the face was rather unnerving. I can only imagine the rest of the film follows along the same lines. With rave reviews submitted from Sundance this is definitely not one to miss. »

It made a splash opening Sundance, wowed Cannes and will likely get awards mentions later this year -- so "Whiplash" will leave a mark. Watch the first trailer ahead of its Toronto Film Festival play this fall. Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons star for writer-director Damien Chazelle ("Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench" and scribe behind this year's "Grand Piano"), playing respective 19-year-old drummer-protégé and tough-as-nails mentor locked up at a Manhattan music academy, pitted against one another in the attempt to become a percussion legend. This intense, high-anxiety film has been described as "'Full Metal Jacket' with drums," with ferocious lead performances and a fine visual palette. Amidst the fare that typically comes with a fall season, Sony will give "Whiplash" a release on October 10. Watch our exclusive video interview with Miles Teller here, and read our »

“There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘Good job.’”
That’s the fault line on which writer/director Damien Chazelle has built Whiplash. His Sundance sensation stars Miles Teller as a jazz-drum prodigy who earns the attention of his prestigious school’s notorious music maestro (J.K. Simmons). Is genius simply born, or does it need to be forged? How far is a teacher supposed—or allowed—to go to bring out the best in a student, and what are the risks and consequences for such methods?
In the new trailer for the film, Teller’s »
