Michael C. Hall Kills Again in First Trailer for Indie Drama 'Cold in July'

1 hour ago

While many are used to seeing Michael C. Hall kill someone with no problem on the now completed Showtime drama series "Dexter," his role as a killer in the Sundance selected drama Cold in July is a little different. Complete with a terrible haircut, Hall plays Richard Dane, a man who ends up fatally shooting a home invader to death. But the real tension begins when the dead intruder's father (Sam Shepard) is released from prison, and seeks out revenge by targeting Richard's young son. This looks like quite an intense thriller, with a solid performance from Hall. We missed it at Sundance, but will certainly seek it out. Here's the first trailer for Jim Mickle's Cold in July, originally from Apple: Cold in July is directed by Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are, Stake Land), who also co-wrote the script with Nick Damici. How can a split-second decision change your life? »

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Has a Clip After 'Amazing Spider-Man 2'

2 hours ago

Following last night's final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, not to mention this morning's revelation that Anna Paquin will have a brief appearance as Rogue in the film after all, that's not all the news for the comic book sequel we have. Empire has learned that the film will actually be teased after the credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But before anyone gets too excited, this isn't like a Marvel Studios credits scene that will tie the two franchises together (X-Men is at Fox while Spider-Man is at Sony), but merely a collaboration between the two studios to tease another comic book blockbuster. More below! We've confirmed with Sony Pictures that this X-Men: Days of Future Past coda will be attached to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in both the United States and the United Kingdom, but it's not clear if it will play in other international territories as well. »

First Poster for Paul Haggis' Drama 'Third Person' Blows in the Wind

2 hours ago

Following yesterday's international trailer for the Toronto Film Festival selected Third Person, the first poster for the film's release in the United States has arrived, but the film doesn't yet have a date to hit theaters. If you look hard enough, you can see Liam Neeson in the background, and we're not sure why he's being given top billing since the film follows him along with Adrien Brody and James Franco, with all of their stories in Paris Rome and New York (respectively) intersecting somehow. The dress blowing away like paper is a nice touch, but after yesterday's trailer, we're not all that excited to see the film itself. Here's the first poster for Paul Haggis' Third Person from Imp Awards: Third Person is written and directed by Paul Haggis (Crash, The Next Three Days) and follows three stories in Paris, Rome and New York, each with hidden connections »

Jaden Smith & Liev Schreiber Find Period Drama in 'Good Lord Bird'

3 hours ago

So far rising star Jaden Smith, son of box office superstar Will Smith, has only taken on big studio films like After Earth and the remake of The Karate Kid (with a sequel still on the way). Now Deadline reports he's going to really test his acting chops with a lower profile, powerful period drama called The Good Lord Bird, based on the book of the same name by James McBride. The story follows Henry ‘Onion’ Shackleford (Smith), a young slave who links up with radical abolitionist John Brown (Liev Schreiber of Goon and "Ray Donovan") in 1856 Kansas, traveling the nation with his motley crew of freedom fighters. More below! In what sounds like a tale akin to Forrest Gump, the story is from the somewhat satirical point-of-view of Onion, as he follows Brown’s historic campaign and encounters the likes of well-known history book icons like Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman, »

First Golden Teaser Poster for Horror Reboot 'Leprechaun: Origins'

3 hours ago

"A horror icon is reborn." That might be a little too liberal use of the word "icon." Yes, there's been plenty of Leprechaun films in the past, but they've all been B-movie level horror movies (some even worse), many never even hitting the big screen and going straight-to-dvd. But the tiny little bastard is making a comeback with Leprechaun: Origins, and now Lionsgate and WWE Films have released the golden teaser poster for the horror reboot starring wrestler Dylan "Hornswoggle" Postl in the role originated by Warwick Davis. This likely means the first trailer is also coming sometime soon, so stay tuned. Look below! Here's the first poster for Zach Lipovsky's Leprechaun: Origins from Shock Til You Drop: Leprechaun: Origins is directed by TV movie director Zach Lipovsky and written by freshman writer Harris Wilkinson and straight-to-dvd horror sequel writer Matt Venne (Fright Night 2, Mirrors 2, White Noise »

Anna Paquin Will Show Up in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' After All

5 hours ago

Just before Christmas last year, some disappointing news came from director Bryan Singer about a certain mutant not making the cut in X-Men: Days of Future Past. A certain sequence in the film had already ended up on the cutting room floor, and while Singer liked the sequence, it just became extraneous and he said, "it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in." However, it appears Paquin will end up in the film after all. Some observant eyes at BuzzFeed noticed the actress' name still in the credits at the end of last night's awesome final trailer, and they found out more info. Read on! When Singer said Paquin was cut from the film, he said, "Even though she's in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won't appear in it." So it would stand to reason »

Watch: New Footage in a Quick 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Featurette

5 hours ago

As of now, we've only seen one trailer for Marvel's cosmic assembly of heroes in Guardians of the Galaxy, but once the blockbuster summer kicks into full gear, we'll be bound to see a full theatrical trailer at some point. In the meantime, why not check out a brief new featurette that aired during last night's episode of Marvel's series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," which has been shaken up quite a bit since Captain America: The Winter Soldier hit theaters. There's some brief bits of new footage, including Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel as Rocket Racoon and Groot, and it's a short but sweet look behind the scenes. Here's the new featurette for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from YouTube: And if you haven't had the pleasure yet, watch the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer right here. Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super »

First Powerful Trailer for Adaptation 'If I Stay' Starring Chloe Moretz

15 hours ago

"Life is this big, fat, gigantic, stinking mess, and that's the beauty of it, too..." Warner Bros has debuted the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's If I Stay, an adaptation of Gayle Forman's novel of the same name about an aspiring musician who must overcome great tragedy and make an impossible decision. Chloe Moretz stars, along with Jamie Blackley as the boy, plus Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds and Stacy Keach This looks like a heartbreaker to compete with Fault in Our Stars, but, maybe by the end, a heartwarmer, too. The footage looks solid, nothing like The Lovely Bones thankfully. Take a look. Here's the first trailer for R.J. Cutler's adaptation of If I Stay, direct from MTV's YouTube: Synopsis for If I Stay, adapted from the novel by Gayle Forman. Mia Hall (Chloë Grace Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever »

Must Watch: Final Astounding 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Trailer

15 hours ago

With the film just over a month away, it's time for the final trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past, and if you're not fully excited for this sequel after watching it, we're not sure what to tell you. This promises to be the biggest X-Men film to date, which is crazy since X-Men: Apocalypse could be even bigger. But it's hard to argue with the presence of this positively massive cast that includes the young X-Men: First Class crew, and the veteran original X-Men franchise cast brought to life by Bryan Singer. We're still trying to keep our hype in check, but we can't help our growing anticipation after this last tease. It features everyone from Magneto to Kitty Pryde, Beast to Mystique, Quicksilver to Iceman, and of course, Professor X. Enjoy! Here's the final trailer for Bryan Singer's X-Men: Days of Future Past, direct from X-Men YouTube: »

Will Ferrell & John C. Reilly Back with Adam McKay as 'Border Guards'

17 hours ago

Perhaps one of the funniest comedic duos of the past 10 years is that of John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell. While they've only teamed up on Step Brothers and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, they've done plenty of random hilarity online and on the small screen. Last fall we heard Ferrell and Reilly would reteam for a film called Devil's Night, but we're not sure when that project will come together. Now Deadline has word that the hilarious actors will reunite on another project called Border Guards, scripted by In the Loop writer Jesse Armstrong, with Step Brothers helmer Adam McKay circling as director. Well, Border Guards would see Ferrelly and Reilly as two hapless but earnest friends who decide to give purpose to their lives by protecting America’s borders from the illegal immigrants of Mexico. In the process, they find themselves accidentally stranded in Mexico somehow »

'Back to the Future II' Inspired Documentary Focuses on 2015 Tech

18 hours ago

Though the HUVr tech hoverboards inspired by Back to the Future Part II turned out to be an obvious hoax, at least Nike's power laces are a real thing coming in 2015. The fact that we're able to talk about these things so commonly, and most of the general population knows what we're talking about, just goes to show you how engrained the Robert Zemeckis' time traveling trilogy has been on pop culture. In fact, the technology "created" to populate the year 2015 in the sequel has been referenced and used as inspiration for real science for decades. Now a new documentary aims to explore just how accurate the film's prediction of future technology turned out to be or how far we are from realizing Zemeckis' film vision of 2015. Read on! Film School Rejects called our attention to a documentary from unknown British director John Plaskett called Back to the Future »

Watch: Spotlight on Fantastic Stunt Work in 'Captain America' & More

22 hours ago

If you're a cinephile, you know a lot of hard work from a hell of a lot of people goes into making movie magic possible. But perhaps one of the most overlooked performers in some of the most popular movies to hit theaters are the stunt men and women who put themselves into harm's way when the action gets a little too dangerous. CBS Sunday Morning (via Movies.com) recently did a 10-minute profile on stuntwork in feature films with a special focus on Sam Hargrave, the stunt double who steps in for Chris Evans when things get too tough on the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. There's also a short look back at the history of stunts on the big screen, and the profession that deserves its own Academy Award category. Here's the news feature "Taking the Fall" from CBS Sunday Morning (via Movies.com): "I exist because I'm expendable. »

Elizabeth Banks Causes Trouble in 'Walk of Shame' Red Band Trailer

23 hours ago

Following a somewhat underwhelming trailer earlier this year for the comedy Walk of Shame starring Elizabeth Banks, a second red band trailer offers a slightly better look at the comedy. While the terrible audio editing in the first half of the trailer is thoroughly distracting, Banks shines as she runs around Los Angeles, trying to get her car back in order to make it to the most important job interview of her career as a news anchorwoman. Meanwhile, her one-night-stand James Marsden and friends Gillian Jacobs and Sarah Wright are in hot pursuit, trying to end her long night from hell with a happy ending. Watch below! Here's the new red band trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Us Magazine: Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, Drillbit Taylor, Without a Paddle).

Universal Also Using Paul Walker's Brothers to Finish 'Fast & Furious 7'

15 April 2014 12:35 PM, PDT

When production resumed on Fast & Furious 7 towards the end of last month, it was revealed that body doubles coupled with the use of visual effects would help director James Wan and the production team of the actions sequel to finish the film in the wake of the death of franchise star Paul Walker. Now Universal has revealed another way they're able to finish the film without the late Walker. The studio has commissioned Walker's brothers Caleb & Cody Walker to help out a bit. The studio says, "Caleb and Cody are helping us complete some remaining action for their brother and fill in small gaps left in production." Here's the press release in full that explains their plan: The 'Fast & Furious' saga is about family. The characters are connected by the bond of family, and it is how all of us who have worked together for more than thirteen years feel about each other. »

Second 'Friday the 13th' Reboot Eyes 'V/H/S' Director David Bruckner

15 April 2014 12:13 PM, PDT

Just before Thanksgiving last year, we learned that Platinum Dunes decided to try out another reboot of Friday the 13th with Paramount Pictures already staking out a release date on March 13th, 2015, which just so happens to be a Friday. Now the project is rounding up some talent to make it happen, and it gives us some semblance of hope for a horror film that already had a reboot as recent as 2009. Apparently it wasn't good enough to just keep the franchise going from there, and now The Wrap reports David Bruckner, who directed the segment "Amateur Night" in the horror anthology V/H/S is being eyed to direct the new film. If you haven't checked out V/H/S, it's available to stream on Netflix Instant right now, and it's definitely worth your time. Bruckner's segment focused on some college kids who use some camera eyeglasses as a »

'Magic Mike Xxl' to Strip Down for America on July 4th, 2015 Weekend

15 April 2014 11:59 AM, PDT

Briefly: Last month, we learned the developing sequel to Steven Soderbergh's male stripper hit Magic Mike would be going by the appropriately bigger title of Magic Mike Xxl and the original film's first assistant director Greg Jacobs would be at the helm this time. Now Warner Bros. has announced that the sequel will arrive in a prime summer spot on July 3rd, 2015, just in time to take advantage of the big box office that always comes through on July 4th weekend. That means the Channing Tatum sequel will arrive just a couple days after Terminator: Genesis, but the target audiences couldn't be more different. We still don't know much of anything about the film other than it's "a road movie sort of thing," so stay tuned for more. »

Jenny Slate Gets Pregnant in First Trailer for Hilarious 'Obvious Child'

15 April 2014 10:25 AM, PDT

After loving the comedy Obvious Child at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, we're happy to report the film is hitting theaters this summer, and the first trailer has just arrived. Former "Saturday Night Live" star and "The Kroll Show" regular Jenny Slate delivers a charming, hilarious and spectacular breakthrough performance as Donna, a Brooklyn comedian who gets dumped and takes solace in a one night stand and ends up pregnant. It throws her whole life into upheaval, not to mention her struggle with telling the would-be father about the mishap, including her plan to get an abortion. Not only is the film funny, but it's genuine and as I wrote in my review, "everything that romantic comedies wish they could be." Watch! Here's the first trailer for Gillian Robespierre's Obvious Child from A24: Obvious Child is written and directed by Gillian Robespierre, based on her own »

Dudes Love 'My Little Pony' in Odd Tribeca Doc Trailer 'A Brony Tale'

15 April 2014 10:09 AM, PDT

If you frequent the internet enough, then you might already know about the phenomenon of men aged 13 to 30 who are obsessed with the Hasbro toy line and animated TV series "My Little Pony." This group of males has been dubbed "Bronies" and now they're getting the spotlight at the Tribeca Film Festival later this month in the form of A Brony Tale, a documentary that looks at the perplexing, pop culture niche which has a big enough following to warrant its own convention, BronyCon. Complete with interviews with various Bronies, this looks like a truly eye-opening documentary that should illicit some chuckles. Watch it! Here's the trailer for Brent Hodge's documentary A Brony Tale from Deadline: Born of internet mecca 4chan, the “Brony” phenomenon is a flourishing community of adult, mostly straight, male fans of the children’s cartoon "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic."

Conan Reveals 'American Hustle' Makeover Before MTV Movie Awards

15 April 2014 9:17 AM, PDT

Yesterday, we featured the opening to the MTV Movie Awards, not because we care about who the golden popcorn goes to, but because it showcased host Conan O'Brien fitting no less than 50 celebrity cameos into the beginning of the show. Now that the show is over, Conan is back to his normal hosting duties on his own late night talk show on TBS. But he had some time to reminisce about his weekend hosting gig, and even took the time to reveal some of his preparation behind the scenes, mostly his hair styling inspired by the remarkable comb-over donned by Christian Bale in last year's Best Picture nominee American Hustle. Here's Conan O'Brien preparing for the MTV Movie Awards from Team Coco: American Hustle is directed by David O. Russell (Flirting with Disaster, Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook), working from a script he co-wrote with The International writer Eric Singer. »
