Having a Mustache is Apparently Quite Funny in the New 'Mortdecai' Trailer

20 hours ago

Here is a new trailer for Mortdecai, which looks like a truly dreadful January release. The first half of the trailer for the spy comedy starring Johnny Depp relies entirely on the joke of his mustache. It is a rather arduous process to sit through it, and it is only forty-five seconds long. Then there's the second forty-five seconds, which is just as bad. I am sure the Depp fans will line up to see this, if they are still out there. But I do not know what the appeal of this isc Aren't we all tired of Depp's wacky schtick alreadyc I am. When he does decide to do it, it is much better in a small dose (i.e. Into the Woods). Well, if you are at all interested in the film also starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany, and Jeff Goldblum, you are free to watch the new trailer below. »

Watch: Honest Trailer for 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Reboot

24 December 2014 7:52 AM, PST

Picking on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is just an easy target, no matter how good the film is/was. Paramount, however, isn't too concerned with any of the jabs the ScreenJunkies crew throws its way in this new honest trailer as they sent out a press release yesterday announcing among all films theatrically released in 2014 that earned more than $100 million at the box office, the new DVD and Blu-ray release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has the highest ratio of disc sales to theatrical ticket sales for its first week of release. Now that's a rather specific group of films, but it does include the likes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Transformers: Age of Extinction and so on. I think Christmas for the kiddies has a little something to do with that, but doesn't that speak to whom this film is forc So, »

Watch: Trailer for New 'Entourage' Movie

23 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST

I think I've seen one episode of "Entourage" so I have no context from which to approach the upcoming movie, but it seems the fanbase for this film still exists and so perhaps this trailer for the upcoming movie is something that will get you interested... or not. Directed by Doug Ellin, the movie tells the story of movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny (Kevin Dillon), are back...and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven). Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood. The movie hits theaters on June 12, check out the trailer and some posters below. sb id="1287949" height="360" width="640" »

Watch: Oscar Composer Roundtable with Zimmer, Reznor, Elfman, Powell, and Beltrami

23 December 2014 10:12 AM, PST

Guess what, guysc It is time for another Oscar roundtable! Are you excitedc Well, you should be. Whyc Stephen Galloway is not, I repeat is Not, the moderator for this particular roundtable, which brings together five of this year's composers. I can feel your excitement for this video rising through the Internet just with that information. The five composers The Hollywood Reporter have brought together for this roundtable discussion include Hans Zimmer (Interstellar), Trent Reznor (Gone Girl), Danny Elfman (Big Eyes), John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon 2), and Marco Beltrami (The Homesman). There were a few composers I would have liked to have seen in this roundtable, most notably Antonio Sanchez (Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)), but you cannot always get what you want. I am sure what will interest most is Zimmer's comments on Interstellar's sound mix (something I don't understand the uproar over, »

Antonio Sanchez's 'Birdman' Score Disqualified from Oscar Race

23 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST

One of the best things about Alejandro Gonzalez Inaritu's terrific film Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) was its improvised, jazz drum score from Antonio Sanchez. It was propulsive, exiting, odd, and is the only kind of music that could fit that film. And I do not know how much the movie works if you take his music out. I was looking forward to Sanchez garnering many accolades for his work, because he totally deserves it. After being nominated for a Golden Globe, the natural next step would be an Academy Award nomination. Well... that will not happen. In a terrible decision, Sanchez's score has been disqualified from the race. The film also features classical music, and the Academy concluded there is not enough original score in proportion to the already existing classical music. Sanchez, in an interview with HitFix, talks about he just does not understand why he »

Top Ten Movies of 2014

23 December 2014 8:15 AM, PST

I'm curious what the consensus will be in ten to twenty years, once we look back and evaluate the movies of 2014. It seems I continually see people referring to it as either a great year or a terrible year with little in-between. Were you to judge the year on the quality of the mainstream studio features I could see where you might be disappointed. It wasn't exactly the best year for blockbuster cinema. Hell, Christopher Nolan even came out with a new big budget film and it didn't even make it onto my list of Honorable Mentions. However, you look at the mini majors and smaller distributros, studios such as A24, Fox Searchlight, Sony Classics and Open Road and things begin to perk up, but these studios don't market their films on every channel so at the end of the year when people are asking me "what movies they should »

Justin Lin Set to Direct 'Star Trek 3', and All Other Blockbusters, Too

22 December 2014 7:10 PM, PST

Well Trekkies, it looks like you're going to be in for quite a ride, as Deadline reports Paramount has just set Fast and Furious 6 director Justin Lin as the captain of its space-bound mothership, Star Trek 3. Lin was on the shortlist Paramount assembled after Roberto Orci left the project, and he was joined on that list by the likes of Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), Duncan Jones (Source Code), and Daniel Espinosa (Safe House). However, it appears Paramount has made its decision, and as far as blockbuster directing experience goes, Lin certainly fits the bill. Of those five, he seemed the obvious number one choice, at least from a studio executive's point of view. Admittedly I'm not a big Trek fan, so this news doesn't do a ton for me. I don't particularly have an opinion either way on the »

Nazi Shadows Loom Over the New Poster and Trailer for 'Woman in Gold'

22 December 2014 2:26 PM, PST

Here is a new trailer and poster for a film I had never heard of before. It is called Woman in Gold, which comes to us courtesy of director Simon Curtis (My Week with Marilyn). The poster is obviously what struck me first. It is so comically over the top I could not help but laugh. Then again, this is a film that comes to us from The Weinstein Company, and with films like this, they certainly are not subtle in their marketing. Despite the comical poster, the film does sport a rather impressive cast including Helen Mirren, Daniel Bruhl, and Charles Dance. Ryan Reynolds and Katie Holmes are also in the film, but we don't need to talk about that. If you were like me and had no idea what Woman in Gold is, you can check out the synopsis, as well as the new poster and trailer below. »

New Trailer & Posters for 'Focus' Starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie

22 December 2014 11:06 AM, PST

Warner Bros. has released a new trailer and the first posters for the upcoming conman thriller Focus starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie from directors Glenn Ficarra and John Requa (Crazy, Stupid, Love). The pic hits theaters on February 27 and has the appearance of being mildly intriguing while at the same time looking as if it devolves into something a little less interesting by the film's end. Here Smith stars as Nicky, a seasoned master of misdirection who becomes romantically involved with novice con artist Jess (Robbie). As he's teaching her the tricks of the trade, she gets too close for comfort and he abruptly breaks it off. Three years later, the former flame--now an accomplished femme fatale--shows up in Buenos Aires in the middle of the high stakes racecar circuit. In the midst of Nicky's latest, very dangerous scheme, she throws his plans for a loop...and the consummate con man off his game. »

Watch: New Trailer for Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea'

22 December 2014 9:45 AM, PST

Warner Bros. has released a brand new trailer for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea telling the story that inspired Herman Melville's "Moby Dick". Set in the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. In the Heart of the Sea reveals the encounter's harrowing aftermath, as the ship's surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down. Set for release on March 13, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, »
