Neil deGrasse Tyson Examines the Ares 3 in 'The Martian' Promo

4 hours ago

Our adventure is just beginning. Whoa! This is awesome. Fox has debuted an intriguing new promo video for Ridley Scott's The Martian, featuring real-world astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examining and discussing the Ares 3 mission to Mars. With all the footage we've seen it looks like they're trying to make this as realistic as possible, as if this mission was actually taking place. And I love that angle because it really does make this feel more real, and like it's actually possible. This video delves into the ideas about Mars and why we want to go there, and how we're going to get there. It's a very nice primer for this movie. Here's the new promo for Ridley Scott's The Martian, with Neil deGrasse Tyson talking about Ares 3: You can also see the second trailer for The Martian here with tons of footage + the Ares 3 video promo.

First Look: Michael Fassbender in Costume for 'Assassin's Creed' Movie

12 hours ago

Meet Callum Lynch. Fox has unveiled the first photo of Michael Fassbender playing the lead character in an Assassin's Creed movie. We've been covering this one for years, as they've been developing it for a long long time ever since the Assassin's Creed game series became a huge hit. Lynch is actually a new character created for the film, and they're telling a story that isn't from any of the games. "After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he's poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day." Marion Cotillard, Michael Kenneth Williams and Ariane Labed also star, but are not pictured yet. Looks good so far. Here's the first look photo showing Michael Fassbender from Assassin's Creed, in high def from Yahoo: Assassin's Creed, created by Patrice Desilets & Jade Raymond back in 2007, is an award winning historical fiction action-adventure open world stealth video game series that as »

"What are we looking at here, Mr. Mansley?" A brand new trailer has just landed online for the upcoming re-mastered and extended re-release of Brad Bird's animated The Iron Giant: Signature Edition. We've already heard about this before, as the beloved animated classic will get a small theatrical re-release before it hits Blu-ray in October.

This new trailer doesn't feature too much new footage, but it is a very nice edit that makes this look like so much more than just a cartoon. A great trailer for a wonderful movie.

"You need to deal with your own anger management issues." The first international trailer for Nasty Baby, the latest from Chilean director Sebastián Silva, has debuted. Actress Kristen Wiig has been in a number of outstanding indies recently, between Welcome to Me and The Skeleton Twins and The Diary of a Teenage Girl (I recommend any/all of them), and she has another one coming up. Nasty Baby premiered at Sundance this year and stars Wiig along with Tunde Adebimpe, Reg E. Cathey, Mark Margolis, and Denis O'Hare. The story follows a trio, one woman and two men, in a very awkward relationship. Enjoy.

Watch: New Us Trailer for Stephen Daldry's 'Trash' Film Set in Brazil

26 August 2015 11:40 AM, PDT

"Through all of that, why did they stick with it?" "Because it was right." An official Us trailer has debuted for the film Trash, directed by Stephen Daldry, co-directed by Christian Duurvoort, about three kids in Brazil who find something in the trash that changes their lives. We've been posting about this film for a while already, featuring a couple of different trailers over the years. What we saw back then was much more like a City of God, with the story of kids growing up within the crazy world of Brazil. This trailer looks much more mainstream, with some familiar faces that speak English to help guide us through the story. Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen are in this, along with Wagner Moura. I'm still very interested in seeing this. Here's the new official Us trailer for Stephen Daldry's Trash, originally from Yahoo: When two trash-picking boys from »

26 August 2015 10:32 AM, PDT

"The noble quest is at hand..." Warner Bros / New Line Cinema has debuted the full trailer for The Hobbit Trilogy: Extended Edition, an event being hosted by Fathom Events. Taking place in cinemas around the country this October is a series of screenings (on October 5th, October 7th, October 13th) of the complete Extended Edition trilogy from Peter Jackson. One movie will be shown each date, ending with the debut of the Extended Edition of The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies. The final movie is actually rated R for "some violence", if that adds any extra interest. The footage is pretty much most of what we've seen, but it's cool to see them make a trailer for the theatrical events. Back to Middle Earth one more time.

Watch: New Us Trailer for 'Youth' with Michael Caine & Harvey Keitel

26 August 2015 10:01 AM, PDT

"Who were you? 'Who?' - that's what I always ask myself..." Fox Searchlight has debuted their new official Us trailer for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, starring Michael Caine as an aging composer who retreats with his filmmaker friend, played by Harvey Keitel, to a spa in the Alps. There they encounter some interesting characters and discuss life, and youth, and beauty, and more. Rachel Weisz also stars as Caine's daughter, who also joins him on the trip. The cast includes Paul Dano, Jane Fonda and Ed Stoppard. This trailer starts out looking like a fun indie comedy, then becomes something very poetic in the second half. The best trailer yet, very moving - I can't wait to see this. "I don't owe anybody anything, I did it myself!" Enjoy it. Here's the official Us trailer (+ poster) for Paolo Sorrentino's Youth, from Fox Searchlight's YouTube: Fred (Caine) and Mick (Dano), two old friends, »

New Poster for Danny Boyle's 'Steve Jobs' Film Premiering Very Soon

26 August 2015 9:32 AM, PDT

Universal has debuted a poster for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film, which is about to premiere and start earning real buzz with critics/journalists. I've heard from numerous places that the film will be premiering at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day, and it will also play at the New York Film Festival in October. We've already seen a couple of trailers so far, and it looks way better than I was expecting, though I'm very curious to see how much of an influence Boyle had. Since I'm perhaps more intrigued by Sorkin's script than anything else. Michael Fassbender plays the iconic black-turtleneck-wearing tech innovator Steve Jobs. Here's the newest official Us poster for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film, direct from Universal. Thoughts? You can also still watch the full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs right here, if you're interested. Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, »

Check Out This Excellent Daniel Craig Era James Bond Tribute Video

25 August 2015 3:51 PM, PDT

"You don't trust anyone, do you James?" It may be a bit too early to be posting a tribute to the Daniel Craig era of James Bond movies, considering we're still in the midst of it, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy one anyway. YouTube user Steven Thomas has edited together an excellent five minute tribute to Daniel Craig as Agent 007 in anticipation of his fourth movie coming up, Spectre, directed by Sam Mendes arriving in theaters this November. Roger Moore made seven Bond movies, Sean Connery made six (not counting Never Say Never Again), so Craig has a few to go to match them. I'm very excited for Spectre and I'm hoping it's as good as if not better than Skyfall. In the meantime, watch this 007 tribute in full below. Description from YouTube: "Relive James Bond's movies incarnated by Daniel Craig. Since Casino Royale to Spectre. James Bond »

Watch: Sharlto Copley Playing Chappie in Impressive VFX Breakdown

25 August 2015 11:46 AM, PDT

This is impressive. While Neill Blomkamp is off working on his version of an Alien movie, let's try not to forget that Chappie was released this year. Whether you liked the film or not, there's a lot that Blomkamp does as a sci-fi director that should be admired. Whether it's the way he seamlessly integrates sleek CGI into practical scenes, or tries to create entirely CG characters and make them feel completely real. That's a lot harder than it sounds, and thankfully there's a few VFX teams that help him pull this off. One of the VFX houses responsible for a large chunk of the main work on Chappie was Image Engine, a Vancouver based agency. This 4-minute reel shows how they went from blank plates or actual shots with Sharlto Copley in costume to the final footage with the robot. There's some impressive work on display in here, so take a look. »

25 August 2015 11:04 AM, PDT

Get a load of this! What a funky teaser trailer. The first official teaser trailer for Guy Maddin's new film The Forbidden Room has debuted online, and it's a quite a doozy. This wacky, experimental film premiered at Sundance in the New Frontier section. If you're familiar with Maddin's past work, you may know his style already. But if not, this fun teaser will give you a brief glimpse. The introduction of the cast is a bit tiresome, but at least it looks nice. Directed by Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson, The Forbidden Room stars Roy Dupuis, Clara Furey, Louis Negin, Udo Kier, Mathieu Amalric, Charlotte Rampling and Victor Andres Turgeon-Trelles. If abstract stories that dive six layers deep are your thing, then give this a whirl.

25 August 2015 7:21 AM, PDT

Omaze has launched another short new promo video from the set of Star Trek Beyond. This one is special though, it's a tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy from the entire cast and crew of Star Trek Beyond, being directed by Justin Lin. We've already featured a number of these Omaze Star Trek mini promos before, but this one is worth seeing for all the footage of Nimoy and the love they have for him. The video features most of the cast and is narrated specifically by Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in this new Star Trek series. The rest is all about collecting money for a charity Nimoy supported, so take a look. Live long and prosper.

See the Trailer for Stephen Tobolowsky Doc 'The Primary Instinct'

24 August 2015 11:01 AM, PDT

"That thing that makes a story a story..." FilmBuff has debuted the first teaser trailer for David Chen's documentary The Primary Instinct, about actor/entertainer Stephen Tobolowsky. The documentary follows Tobolowsky across the country while he speaks at events and performs "The Tobolowsky Files", the podcast hosted by Chen and Tobolowsky. It's essentially a concert film made up mostly of footage from his events with an extra edge looking at storytelling, asking the question of "why do we tell stories in the first place?" This actually looks really good! I'm already fascinated by what Tobolowsky talks about in this tease. Here's the first official trailer for David Chen's doc The Primary Instinct, originally from Vanity Fair: Actor Stephen Tobolowsky has acted in over 200 TV shows and films over the past 40 years, possessing one of the most dazzlingly diverse filmographies on the planet. But even more compelling than the »

Alamo Drafthouse Hosting 'Septemberg' Spielberg Month Screenings

24 August 2015 10:30 AM, PDT

"I wanted to show them something that wasn't an illusion. Something that was real." Get ready for Steven Spielberg mania all-September-long at your local Alamo Drafthouse! Drafthouse has officially announced a new screening series they're hosting called Septemberg, in honor of the upcoming release of Spielberg's newest movie Bridge of Spies (in theaters October 16th). Many of my friends grew up watching Spielberg movies, whether it was E.T. or Indiana Jones or Jaws or Hook or Close Encounters. He's a one-of-a-kind, masterful filmmaker even today, and it's always exciting to revisit his past work. The Drafthouse also put together a fun video teaser for the "Septemberg" series, along with info and locations around the country. Teaser video below - the screening series runs all month during September at various Drafthouse cinemas. "Steven Spielberg has to be the most populist of all the great American filmmakers.

Teaser Trailer for Dark Comedy 'Kill Your Friends' with Nicholas Hoult

24 August 2015 9:59 AM, PDT

"How far are you willing to go?" Are you ready for this? StudioCanal UK has debuted a teaser trailer for the dark comedy Kill Your Friends, starring Nicholas Hoult as an A&R man working at the height of the Britpop music craze. This looks like it gets a bit more darker and crazier than just an "A&R man" looking for a new hit group, almost like a British mash-up between American Psycho, Filth and Almost Famous. Aside from Hoult, the cast includes Ed Skrein, James Corden, Rosanna Arquette, Tom Riley, Georgia King and Craig Roberts. It's just a tease, though I'm certainly intrigued after that glimpse. Take a look! Here's the first teaser trailer for Owen Harris' Kill Your Friends, on YouTube (via The Film Stage): Based on John Niven's best-selling novel, and starring Nicholas Hoult as you’ve never seen him before, Kill Your Friends »

Watch: New 'I'm Alive' TV Spot for Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi 'The Martian'

24 August 2015 7:12 AM, PDT

"I'll never stop fighting to make it home." This is easily one of my most anticipated movies coming up this fall, so I'm happy to keep posting some cool promos. This time it's another new TV spot (following the latest trailer) for Ridley Scott's sci-fi The Martian, starring Matt Damon as Mark Watney, and the spot comes in at 60 seconds. There's lots of new footage, lots of old footage, everything together making this look absolutely amazing. Of course, we should be cautiously optimistic since it is Ridley Scott, but at least there are some cool FX, and Watney's story seems worth exploring. Co-starring Kate Mara, Sebastian Stan, Kristen Wiig, Jessica Chastain, Sean Bean, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor. Enjoy. Here's the extended TV spot titled "I'm Alive" for Ridley Scott's The Martian, from 20th Century Fox: You can also see the second trailer for The Martian here »
