6 hours ago

Nearly two months ago we learned that Clint Eastwood's adaptation of American Sniper would sneak into this years awards race with a limited release on Christmas Day before it goes wide in the middle of January. Now the hype machine on the film is starting with the first photos from the film starring Bradley Cooper. Based on an autobiography by Navy Seal Chris Kyle, the book recalls the soldier's own time spent as deadliest American sniper ever, called "The Devil" by the enemies he hunted and "The Legend" by his Navy Seal brothers. Expect a trailer sometime soon too, but for now, check out the first photos below! Here's the first photos from Clint Eastwood's American Sniper from USA Today: American Sniper is directed by Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino, Flags of Our Fathers) and written by Jason Dean Hall (Paranoia).

7 hours ago

The forthcoming sequel Maze Runner: Scorch Trials recently gained a "Game of Thrones" cast member as the main villain in the film, two more new characters have been cast. First of all, to clarify, only Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario and Thomas Brodie-Sangster have been confirmed to return in the sequel that sees the group of teens outside of the deadly maze and now faced with a new set of challenges for survival in a futuristic world ravaged by devastation and disease.

Ben Affleck May Lead 'The Accountant' Thriller for Warner Bros. Next

9 hours ago

After directing the Best Picture winning Argo for Warner Bros., it seems like actor and filmmaker Ben Affleck is getting comfortable over there. His next directing gig is supposed to be Live by Night at the studio whenever he's done with Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (also at Warner Bros.), and now he's lining up another starring role over there too. Variety reports Affleck is currently in talks to lead the action thriller The Accountant, based on an original script by Bill Dubuque, the man responsible for writing The Judge staring Robert Downey Jr. Warrior director Gavin O'Connor is the studio's top choice to direct too. The project has been kicking around various studios for years. Sony once had a version in the works with Will Smith, but before that the project was at Warner Bros. to begin with and had Mel Gibson attached to direct. Now Affleck has unearthed it again, »

Watch: Fun First Trailer for '21 Years: Richard Linklater' Documentary

10 hours ago

"There's no slacker in that slacker!" We've been patiently waiting for this one. There's a documentary about filmmaker Richard Linklater being released this fall (in November) titled simply 21 Years: Richard Linklater, looking back at the first 21 years in his directing career - from Slacker to Boyhood. The doc features interviews with everyone from Matthew McConaughey to Jack Black to Jason Reitman to Kevin Smith, and many of them pop up in this trailer. It's perhaps mere coincidence that Linklater seems to be having a landmark year, with Boyhood in theaters now, Before Midnight still getting love, and all of this acclaim on top of it. I'm a huge fan of Linklater and have been anxiously awaiting this - it looks like fun. Here's the first trailer for Michael Dunaway & Tara Wood's 21 Years: Richard Linklater, via YouTube: See the official poster here. "It's been said that the first 21 years defines the career of an artist. »

Kevin Hart Joins Colin Firth for The Intouchables' American Remake

11 hours ago

A remake of the hit French film The Intouchables has been brewing since 2012 when Chris Tucker was in talks to take the role originated by Omar Sy and British actor Colin Firth was rumored to be attached. Since then directors like Tom Shadyac and Paul Feig have been linked to the project, but we're not sure who's supposed to get behind the camera now. However, a report from French site Allocine (via The Playlist) reports that Firth is still in the film, and comedian Kevin Hart will be taking the co-starring role. Does that mean this is going to become less of a drama and more of a straight-up comedy than the original? This would be the first film that isn't pure comedy for Hart, who hasn't really shown that he has the acting chops to take on a role like this. The original French film is funny but touching »

Is Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski's Next Project 'Indiana Jones 5'?

11 hours ago

Well, here's something that's interesting and a little bit flimsy all at the same time. Ever since Disney picked up the rights to Indiana Jones from Paramount Pictures to complete their acquisition of properties from Lucasfilm, there have been rumors of both continuing the adventure with Harrison Ford or maybe rebooting the franchise with someone like Bradley Cooper. Neither option has proven to have any solid development, but there's a curious mention of Indiana Jones 5 in a Variety article (via SlashFilm) that gives a crash course in cinematography from some of the top names in the business, and one was Janusz Kaminski. For those who don't know, Janusz Kaminski is a frequent collaborator of director Steven Spielberg, having been director of photography for many of his films (Saving Private Ryan and Schindler's List landed him Oscars for his work). And in the aforementioned article, there's this little excerpt: Since then, »

First Trailer for 'The Mule' Starring Hugo Weaving & Leigh Whannell

13 hours ago

"Do something with this shitty life of yours before it's too late!" Damn this looks good. We've been waiting ages to see a trailer for this Australian film called The Mule, about a drug mule who gets into the wrong shit. Angus Sampson (who also co-wrote and co-directs this film) plays Ray Jenkins, who ingests a bag of drugs while in Thailand and attempts to enter Australia. He's caught, but it's not necessarily by the police, with everyone coming after him as soon as he arrives. Hugo Weaving and Leigh Whannell co-star, along with John Noble. This looks great, like a dark comedy with some crazy fun times, I'm looking forward to it. The quotes are the worst part about this trailer, but all the footage and Weaving's mustache looks awesome. Here's the first full trailer for Angus Sampson & Tony Mahony's The Mule, on YouTube (via The Playlist): »

13 hours ago

"Is everybody ready to say goodbye to our solar system?" It's almost time, we're so close. Don't watch this trailer! But here it is anyway! One more fourth and final trailer for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar has debuted, to push this movie to new heights as it prepares for launch in early November. Given we've seen three trailers so far and a handful of TV spots, there's no need to watch this final trailer - it shows too much and it's better to just go in and experience the movie fresh at this point. However, we have also included a brand new featurette with Kip Thorne, the astrophysicist who consulted on the script/movie. This new trailer also confirms the early Tuesday, November 4th screenings in IMAX, starting a few days earlier than the release. Tickets are on sale now - get yours now and get ready to embark upon an unforgettable journey. »

Bill Hader, Josh Gad & More Lead Voice Cast for 'Angry Birds' Movie

15 hours ago

Though it feels like the hype and love for the mobile game turned merchandising machine Angry Birds has died down, the animated feature film is still coming to theaters on July 1st, 2016 with Clay Kaytis and Fergal Reilly directing the film for Rovio Entertainment. And today, Rovio finally revealed the full voice cast, and there's a lot of familiar faces from "Saturday Night Live" and other assorted comedy stars bringing the frustrated little birds to life.

Smaller roles will be voices by Keegan-Michael Key (of "Key & Peele"), Kate McKinnon (Emmy nominee from "Saturday Night Live", Tony Hale ("Veep" and "Arrested Development"), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors), Hannibal Buress ("Broad City"), Jillian Bell ("Workaholics" and 22 Jump Street), Danielle Brooks ("Orange is the New Black"), Cristela Alonzo »

The Plagues Have Arrived in 'Exodus: Gods & Kings' Second Trailer

15 hours ago

"There was a prophecy that our leader would be born to liberate us. That leader is you, Moses." Following the teaser trailer earlier this year, the second full trailer for Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus: Gods & Kings has arrived, and it's epic in every sense of the word. The first trailer seemed to be holding back, but this one paints a beautiful picture of two brothers forced to become enemies. Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton are putting in great performances here, even if the latter's orange skin is a little off-putting, and the scope of this film is huge as evidenced by the arrival of the infamous plagues from God. Watch below! Here's the new trailer for Ridley Scott's Exodus: God & Kings from 20th Century Fox: Watch the original teaser trailer for Exodus: Gods & Kings right here. Exodus: Gods and Kings is directed by Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Robin Hood, »

Watch: Impressive VFX Breakdown for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'

15 hours ago

In just a couple weeks, you'll be able to bring home X-Men: Days of Future Past on Blu-Ray and DVD, and while you'll be able to check out a slew of featurettes going behind the scenes of this past summer's time traveling blockbuster, you won't find this little gem on there. A visual effects breakdown from Digital Domain (via io9) has surfaced online, showing off the impressive work done in post-production. Though I wish there was explanation about what we see and how it's done, there are some cool tidbits, like seeing how each scale on Mystique's body moves when she transforms, or how various composite shots of Jennifer Lawrence fighting and changing into someone else visually come together. It's all very cool to see. Watch! Here's Digital Domain's visual effects reel for X-Men: Days of Future Past (via io9): X-Men: Days of Future Past is directed by »

Watch: Shower Buddies Unite in Third Trailer for 'Horrible Bosses 2'

30 September 2014 5:24 PM, PDT

"There they are! They're my Shower Buddies!" Warner Bros has posted yet another trailer for Sean Anders' sequel Horrible Bosses 2, starring everyone's favorite goofballs: Jason Sudeikis, Jason Bateman and Charlie Day. This time they go to battle against Chris Pine who plays a "slick investor", with the always-cunning Christoph Waltz in the mix, too. Of course, Jamie Foxx is back and so is Jennifer Aniston, keeping things interesting as always. Before this we featured a teaser trailer and another full trailer for the sequel that has another wacky kidnap plot that probably won't go as planned. It looks fun, but may not top the first one. Too many jokes that are timely topical, and not enough of a better story this time. Take a look. Here's the third official trailer for Sean Anders' Horrible Bosses 2, direct from Warner Bros: Horrible Bosses 2 is directed by Sean Anders »

'Zombieland 2' is Back to Life with Ruben Fleischer Directing Again

30 September 2014 4:50 PM, PDT

It's been nearly four years since we heard anything solid about Zombieland 2, and the project was once thought to be in the immediate future of director Ruben Fleischer, but there hasn't been any real progress. The project was assumed dead, but Deadline reports the sequel is now back to life, and Fleischer is returning to direct. As for the script, Dave Callaham (The Expendables, Doom) is tackling the project, coming off a story credit on this summer's successful return of Godzilla at Legendary Pictures. However, it should be noted that Fleischer doesn't have a deal to direct yet, though it doesn't sound like a problem. As for the original cast, it's not clear who will return for the sequel. Emma Stone has blown up since starring in the 2009 film, and Woody Harrelson has been busy with The Hunger Games franchise and "True Detective" has made him more popular than ever. »

Nyff Review: Nostalgic Look at Base Jumping in 'Sunshine Superman'

30 September 2014 4:42 PM, PDT

To live. To fly. To be free. Why is it that the people who live on the edge seem to be the most inspiring? Because they are thrill-seekers, they are the ones who know that the best life is one lived without worry, without fear, without the concerns that society forces upon us. They live with an open mind, a big heart, an appreciation for this planet. They know that genuine thrills make the heart beat faster; thrills remind us that we are still alive, we're still breathing, and that we should make the most of it. I love films that capture this feeling in ways that can't be easily described. Marah Strauch's Sunshine Superman is one of those films that is exciting, moving, heartfelt, but above all it's inspiring to watch. Because it's about inspiring people. Every year there seems to be a documentary or two about extreme »

Russell Crowe's Directorial Debut 'The Water Diviner' Aussie Trailer

30 September 2014 3:04 PM, PDT

After some footage surfaced in our first look at Russell Crowe's directorial debut The Water Diviner earlier this year, the first trailer for the film has finally arrived from Down Under. The film follows Crowe as an Australian man who travels to Turkey four years after the Battle of Gallipoli to try and locate his three missing sons. After working with directors like Ridley Scott, Ron Howard and Darren Aronofsky most recently, it looks like Crowe might have learned a lot, as this looks like a powerful drama that could make a late entry into awards season this winter. The film also stars Olga Kurylenko and Jai Courtney. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Russell Crowe's The Water Diviner from Yahoo Australia: The Water Diviner is directed by Russell Crowe (star of Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, The Insider), making his directorial debut from a screenplay by Australian television »

'Interstellar' IMAX Showings Listed Starting Tuesday, November 4th

30 September 2014 2:52 PM, PDT

"Mankind's next step will be our greatest." Well, this is interesting. We haven't heard or seen any official announcements yet, however theaters in Los Angeles are selling tickets for 8Pm shows of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar starting on Tuesday night, November 4th. Up until today, Interstellar has been officially scheduled to open everywhere on November 7th, and we expected them to run late night/midnight shows the evening before. However, these listings are a full three days early, occurring Tuesday night (for midnight) with the full opening likely on November 5th. So far these listings are only for IMAX theaters, which means this could be an IMAX event to fuel (a few days early) the launch of this cinematic experience. Below is a screenshot directly from MovieTickets.com (link via Twitter) showing listings starting at 8Pm on Tuesday, November 4th running all throughout the night (yes, I would buy three back-to-back showings, »

Alec Baldwin Lends Voice to 'Boss Baby' for DreamWorks Animation

30 September 2014 12:44 PM, PDT

DreamWorks Animation hasn't really had a lot to brag about over the last few years, even with quality franchises like How to Train Your Dragon, they're still struggling to stay on top, and have had trouble pleasing their shareholders. But the animation studio is marching onward and they've just announced a new project called Boss Baby, slated for release by 20th Century Fox on March 18th, 2016. THR has the report on the new project with word that Alec Baldwin will voice a fast-talking briefcase-carrying baby who makes his seven-year old brother jealous in the film described as a fantastical comedy (obviously). Read on! Here's a look at some concept art for DreamWorks Animation's Boss Baby from THR: Could the new animation film be inspired by this sketch from "Saturday Night Live" last year? That's likely not the case since animated films are in development and worked on for years before hitting theaters, »
