'Star Wars' trailer: 7 things we just learned

11 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

You've seen it. You have thoughts. So do we. Below are 7 things we just learned from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, which blew up Black Friday with voom-voom pew-pew-pew glory. 1. There is a triple-bladed lightsaber. Remember when our minds were blown by Darth Maul having a two-sided lightsaber in The Phantom Menace trailer? Not to be outdone, here comes J.J. Abrams with a triple-sided version. Note the light itself is more sparky and flame-like than the usual solid-looking shafts. Also, functionality-wise, the prongs presumably act as added protection. Finally somebody must have said, "Hey, maybe we should »

Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' Tops Sight & Sound's 20 Best Films Of 2014

13 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On Monday, the New York Film Critics Circle will their annual awards, launching the Oscar season into high gear. Other critics groups will soon follow and December will be filled with no shortage of lists and accumulated opinions on what was cinema's finest offerings in 2014. But overseas, Sight & Sound has got the jump on everyone, with the release today of their top twenty films of the year. To be certain, this has pretty much little bearing on any awards season talk, and it should be noted that many films that opened stateside last year, only debuted abroad in '14 (hence the inclusion of Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street"). But culled from the top five lists of 50 critics, it does give a very good indication of what films connected in a big way over the last twelve months, and top of the heap is Richard Linklater's "Boyhood. »

The Peanuts Movie Voice Cast Revealed

27 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fittingly, 20th Century Fox chose today to reveal The Peanuts Movie voice cast.  The CG-animated feature comes from producer Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), director Steve Martino (Horton Hears a Who!), and writer Craig Schulz, the son of Peanuts creator Charles Schulz.  The footage we’ve seen thus far has been surprisingly promising, with the CG animation being done in a stylistic fashion.  But when it comes to the voice cast, you won’t find any big movie stars here (though it’d be kind of great if someone like Will Ferrell or Tina Fey provided the “wah wa-wah”’s of the adults).  The voice cast for the Peanuts Movie is mostly made up of young actors with experience in voiceover work, commercials, and kid-centric programming on The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon.  Noah Schnapp, who just wrapped a role in Steven Spielberg’s untitled Cold War thriller, takes the lead role of Charlie Brown, »

Star Wars 7 Trailer Narrator Revealed

47 minutes ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As Star Wars: The Force Awakens has found its trailer circulating through the internet faster than an erroneous price listing for a Wii U, one particular mystery has stepped to the forefront of the trailer analysis market: who's voice is behind the ominous narration for the first look at J.J. Abrams' slick but appropriate for canon sequel? Despite the relatively fresh nature of this debate, there's already a front runner and an apparent "winner" for the honors of who actually voiced the trailer. That winner, according to a report that's surfaced online, is none other than Andy Serkis. According to HitFix, it has been reported that Serkis, who we know is already in the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is the mysterious voice leading our ears on a journey into the future of the Star Wars universe. For comparison purposes (and because you know you're »

Constantine Recap: “Rage of Caliban”

1 hour ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The bad news it that NBC has halted production on its freshman season of Constantine, stopping the paranormal investigator at an unlucky 13 episodes.  The good news is that the show isn't necessarily canceled (yet).  If you're a fan of the show, now's the time to get vocal about it and encourage your friends to watch it live and check it out on NBC's site where they're hosting replays.  If you haven't given this offbeat and charismatic antihero a chance just yet, then what are you waiting for?  With other comicbook adaptations getting ready to take off for the holidays, the Hellblazer frontman continues to carry the genre squarely on his trenchcoat-covered shoulders. Hit the jump for our Constantine recap. Constantine sure knows how to set up a spooky opener doesn't it?  Last week featured a ghostly, grisly murder, and this week steps that up a notch.  A man runs into »

Watch Vince Vaughn Do Drugs And Get Shot In The Unfinished Business Red Band Trailer

4 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's been a while since Vince Vaughn has really wowed an audience with a movie that truly shows off his off kilter sensibilities. While the trailer for Unfinished Business shows a more subdued, less in-your-face version of Vaughn's classic persona, it also shows that he's still got some prime laughs in him. You can watch for yourself below. 20th Century Fox shared this red band trailer through their YouTube channel, and for a film that's being dropped into a March release date next year, it actually looks pretty funny. The main thrust of the story is that Vince Vaughn has been running his own business for a year or so, and has just landed the big deal that'll pull it all together. Unfortunately for him and his colleagues, there's some surprise competition in the form of Vaughn's ex- boss, played by Sienna Miller. With the deal hanging by the thread, »

5 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ernest Cline.s New York Times best-selling novel Ready Player One has been stuck in movie-making limbo for some time now, and fans of the book have been dying to know: will a film adaptation of the book ever really happen? Zak Penn, the film.s screenwriter speaks to the difficulties with bringing such a unique book to the big screen. The most ominous hurdle in creating the movie should be a surprise to no one. Cline.s novel is full of references to classic video games and movies, and bringing those to a feature film will be somewhat of a nightmare when it comes to obtaining the rights to those games and films. Nerd Report says Penn took "huge liberties" while he penned the screenplay. "You write a script, you take your chances, you say, .This is what we.re going to do. This is where we.re going »
