New Guardians Of The Galaxy Featurette Takes You Behind The Scenes Of Marvel's Sci-Fi Epic

2 hours ago

With Captain America: The Winter Soldier out in theaters, we've been spending a lot of time looking at the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe - and that means thinking a lot about James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Continuing Marvel Studios' pattern of releasing two movies per year, the sci-fi epic is scheduled to hit theaters this summer, which means that the next few months will be filled with ll kinds of different previews, trailers and clips. Take today for example. Following the latest episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that aired this evening, Marvel unveiled a new featurette for Guardians - and now that video has arrived online via Yahoo! I don't know if it's because the effects aren't ready to show off or what, but I must say that I am somewhat disappointed by the lack of any real new footage in this »

The Wolf Of Wall Street Honest Trailer Is Effing Brilliant

7 hours ago

The Wolf of Wall Street was one of 2013's biggest successes. It gained a ton of award nominations. It was Martin Scorsese's most profitable picture to date, and it was a damned fun time at the movies. If there was an Academy Award Nominee that the Internet Meme Machine latched onto with all of its love, support, and laughter, it was definitely this one. With that in mind, we come here this evening to honor The Wolf's greatest Internet honor yet. It's not the Gif of the sexy nursery scene. It's not the many GIFs with an Oscar being positioned outside of Leo's grasp through various struggles seen in the film. It isn't even that really funny video where someone dubbed old Bennihana commercials with audio from the film. It's the Friar's Club Roast of internet trailer reviews: The Screen Junkies' Honest Trailer. That's right, the people that love »

This Week In Home Entertainment: Ride Along, Secret Life Of Walter Mitty And More

7 hours ago

Ride Along Blu-ray Comedian and actor Kevin Hart went from bit player to leading man over the last several months, starring in both Ride Along and About Last Night in a relatively short period of time. It.s the former that has made its way onto Blu-ray and DVD this week, telling a sort-of buddy cop story about a mysterious crime boss and cleaning up the streets of Atlanta. Ride Along follows good-guy security guard Ben (Kevin Hart), a recent enrollee in the police academy who happens to have a gorgeous, likeable girlfriend (Tika Sumpter) and an almost brother-in-law named James (Ice Cube) who hates Ben.s rapid-fire dialogue and bumbling demeanor. To make matters worse, James is a detective, and he offers to bring Ben around for a ride along to show him how ill-suited he would be as a police officer. Of course, in this breezy, lesson-filled narrative, »

Limited Edition Blu-ray For Documentary 'The Final Member' Comes With A Real Bull Penis

8 hours ago

Believe it or not, there is a museum in Iceland that is entirely dedicated penises. Founded in 1974, the Icelandic Phallological Museum is home to over 280 specimens collected from every different kind of creature you can think of. Except for one: human. Even stranger, this open spot generated a race of sorts between two men who wished to be immortalized forever as the representation of the human penis in the museum. That bizarre story has been captured in the new documentary The Final Member, but in case that's not strange enough for you, you should check out it's limited edition Blu-ray/DVD contents. Before we get into the set pictured above, you should first watch the trailer for The Final Member below: So what is the deal with the crazy package (no pun intended) you see above? If you pre-order the film on Blu-ray now, you will include a set that »

Female Screenwriters Fare Better In Television Than Film.

10 hours ago

A major criticism of the Hollywood studio system has always been a lack of diversity when it comes to its protagonists and subject matter. In a world of reboots, copycats, and sequel prospects, the typical "white male protagonist" doesn't only recur, he dominates the marketplace. The same criticism can be made for who is hired to bring things to life on the creative end, particularly in the screenwriting sector. While it.s always been a general gripe that those conscious of such inequalities have always had, The Wrap.s coverage on the 2014 Writer.s Guild of America.s Hollywood Writers Report sheds a lot of light on just how much of a disparity there is between women and minority writers versus the status quo. This year.s report had one overarching message to its statistical analysis: Television is more open to female and minority voices by a surprising margin. In »

Pixar Featurette Highlights Some Of The Studio's Best Easter Eggs

11 hours ago

Thanks to the recent release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we've spent the last few weeks talking about how good Marvel Studios is as sprinkling little Easter Eggs into their films. But let's not forget: Pixar has been doing similar brilliant work in the same regard for the last 19 years - a.k.a. since they began making feature films. Die hard fans of the studio's animated movies have spent years studying their favorite titles and analyzing them frame by frame, but now Pixar has released an official video highlighting a few of the best ones. Hosted by Lee Unkrich, the director of Toy Story 3 and the co-director of Finding Nemo, Monsters Inc. and Toy Story 2, the video puts the spotlight on some of the most clever little bonuses featured in Pixar movies. Not only does the Luxo Jr. ball appear in nearly every one of the studio's films, »

Paul Walker's Brothers Will Help James Wan Finish Fast & Furious 7

11 hours ago

Universal Studios today confirmed that the brothers of late actor Paul Walker will be used by director James Wan to bring Fast & Furious 7 to a close. This has been speculated for a while, basically ever since Walker died in a tragic car accident while the production was on hiatus. Rumors swirled that Wan and the studio would need to rely on some form of CGI to complete scenes that Walker hadn.t yet shot. Now, in a statement (acquired by ComingSoon), Universal reveals that Walker.s siblings will be used. and explains why that is relevant to this film series: A Note to the Fans of Fast & Furious 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. It certainly defines how we feel »

Michael Bay's Friday The 13th Reboot Looking At V/H/S Director

11 hours ago

Friday The 13th is getting rebooted. Again. You can thank (or rage at) Michael Bay, whose Platinum Dunes is resurrecting the slasher franchise for Paramount Pictures. While we've known about this project since last November, the latest development is that Bay and his fellow producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form have nearly wrangled one of the directors of the horror anthology V/H/S to take the film's helm. The Wrap reports filmmaker David Bruckner has entered into negotiations to direct the Friday the 13th reboot. Bruckner is described as a "genre veteran" by The Wrap, but in truth he's worked on two horror features: V/H/S and The Signal, neither of which required him to helm the entire film by himself. Basically, Friday the 13th will mark Bruckner's feature directorial debut. Bruckner earned his first director credit in 2007 with the release of The Signal, a horror-thriller broken into »

Spider-Man Producer Warns Fans Not To Expect The Traditional Sinister Six

11 hours ago

Sony has told Spider-Man fans that a Sinister Six movie is coming. Heck, we even know that Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard will helm the spinoff film. But before you go assuming which classic members of Spider-Man.s rogues gallery will be front and center in the Sinister Six movie, consider the recent comments of The Amazing Spider-Man producer Matt Tolmach. The producer was speaking with IGN ahead of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opening in the UK, and he cautioned that the traditional Sinister Six lineup isn.t Gospel. Said Tolmach: "Nothing is sacred. I mean it.s going to be the best Six that you can imagine, but it.s going to make sense in the world that we.re building." Anyone paying attention to the trailers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 knows that Doctor Octopus and The Vulture were hinted at in the confines of Oscorp: »

This New X-Men: Days Of Future Past Trailer Will Blow You Away

12 hours ago

After months of waiting following the debut of the first X-Men: Days of Future Past footage late last year, we are now finally starting to get new previews on a regular basis. It was less than a month ago that 20th Century Fox unveiled the most recent trailer for the film, and just this past Sunday we saw a new clip arrive courtesy of the MTV Movie Awards. But now the time has come for yet another big theatrical preview for the blockbuster comic book movie, courtesy of the X-Men Movies YouTube page. I must say that I absolutely love this trailer, and I imagine that it will absolutely sell anybody on the movie that.s not already sold. From the thumping chords of Led Zeppelin.s "Kashmir," to the almost heist-like set-up of the plot, this new preview gives us a much better idea of what X-Men: Days of »

Leonardo DiCaprio Signs Up For Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's The Renevant

12 hours ago

Now that he.s done dancing at Coachella, Leonardo DiCaprio can get back to the business of acting. He appears to have circled his next gig, agreeing in principle to a September shoot for the gritty thriller The Revenant, the next drama from director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. Deadline breaks the news, reporting that the film will be backed by Fox and New Regency. Inarritu.s movie will be based on Michael Punke's novel "The Revenant: A Novel Of Revenge." DiCaprio is slated to play Hugh Glass, a "19th century fur trapper who gets mauled by a grizzly bear, and then is left for dead by cohorts who rob him. When he survives, he is as pissed as a bee-stung bear and sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on those who betrayed him." When we first reported on the project way back in 2011, we noted that Sean Penn »

Magic Mike Xxl Sets July 2015 Release Date

13 hours ago

Magic Mike Xxl's premiere date has been set. It looks like Warner Bros. is looking to get the anticipated followup into theaters on July 3, 2015, which means fans of Channing Tatum and his moves will be waiting more than a year for Magic Mike 2, the sequel which follows up on Steven Soderbergh's 2012 feature. Fourth of July weekend seems a bit patriotic for the occasion, but then again... The July 3 release date puts the film in close proximity to the release of the Terminator reboot, which is due to arrive in theaters July 1, 2015. We've known for a while that a sequel was coming, and that Channing Tatum is writing it... in a fedora... What better way to start writing #MagicMike2 than with my old friend Dallas? #runatribe pic.twitter.com/RalS3nQfro.

No One Bothered Telling James Franco He's In Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes

13 hours ago

When Rise of the Planet of the Apes turned out to be not only a good movie, but a great one, a sequel was pretty much guaranteed - especially since this was 20th Century Fox.s second bite at refreshing the Ape apple following the "let.s not even talk about it" effort from Tim Burton in 2001. Among those who benefited from the success of the film was its star, James Franco, who almost looked like he was going to torpedo his promising career with the stoner fantasy flop Your Highness in the same year. A lot of his credibility was restored with his portrayal of Dr. Will Rodman, the genius who accidentally brought upon the downfall of mankind. Much like how his character didn.t mean to be the bearer of the apocalypse, Mr. Franco also apparently didn.t mean to play a cameo role in upcoming sequel, Dawn »

Rick Santorum's EchoLight Films Releasing Movies Exclusively To Churches

14 hours ago

EchoLight Pictures is but one of many independent film distributors trying to get by on modestly-budgeted films aimed at a growing market. They've distinguished themselves with faith-based offerings, courtesy of former Presidential candidate Rick Santorum, and many of their films have been able to secure hundred-screen releases. That doesn't seem like much when big films usually debut on 3,000-plus screens, but for modest indie distributors, it's a whole lot. But EchoLight isn't trying to use theaters to break out: they're using churches. Deadline reports that their plan is to release four films a year. But they'll be in churches nationwide, no longer just theaters. DVD, VOD, theatrical, we expected, but just churches? Unexpected, but it's this sort of unconventionality that Santorum says helps bring people closer to Christian faith. EchoLight CEO Jeff Sheets elaborates: "We want to be a part of empowering the church to elevate its role as a »

Godzilla's Latest Poster Celebrates The Creature's Japanese Heritage

16 hours ago

Gareth Edwards. new Godzilla is winning the unofficial marketing war of somehow selling audiences on his upcoming blockbuster without giving away the best parts of the movie. Even though we have seen multiple trailers and TV spots for Godzilla, it feels like we haven.t seen a crystal-clear image of the titular beastie. And this latest poster (shared above) is yet another example of giving us Godzilla without completely revealing its cards. ComingSoon had the new one sheet, from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. It.s a callback to Godzilla.s Japanese heritage . a factor that has been powering this franchise reboot since the studios set up an interactive display at San Diego Comic-Con last summer. This design also allows Godzilla to coast on the heritage of its lead character without having to spoil the audience with new footage or crucial reveals. This has been an issue plaguing pending blockbusters »

Hans Zimmer Says He's Returning To Score Batman Vs. Superman

17 hours ago

Just as the Batman vs. Superman talk was starting to ramp up last autumn, one key piece in the puzzle remained up in the air: whether Hans Zimmer was going to come back to score the next film in the universe he helped create. The last we had heard was that Zimmer was not terribly interested in coming back, mostly because he felt like he.d be plagiarizing his work from Christopher Nolan.s Dark Knight saga. In fact he.d even gone as far as saying that his best contribution to the project would be to tell Zack Snyder to find someone else to do it. Well, now it looks like the Man of Steel director has found his new composer! And you'll never guess who it is. Digital Spy has announced that the composer for Batman vs. Superman is up-and-coming composer. Hans Zimmer. In a short six months, »

Ice Cube Lashes Out Against MTV Awards For Losing To Paul Walker, Quickly Apologizes

17 hours ago

Nobody cares about the MTV Movie Awards more than Ice Cube. The rapper-actor had received a nomination with Kevin Hart for Best Onscreen Duo, for their team-up in Ride Along. Ultimately they lost the award to the coupling of Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker in Fast And Furious 6. And so life moved on. But not for Ice Cube, who decided to make a stand and slap his foot deep into his own mouth. Speaking to USA Today (via Us Weekly), Cube vented to the publication, We was robbed. Shame on you, MTV... We had the best chemistry of everybody nominated, for us not to win was crazy. We were the best onscreen duo, period. Cube also went on to credit Walker's win to a "sympathy" vote, saying they should have given it to him "before he passed away." Which is sort of true, that sympathy played a part: »

Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice Described As The Big Lebowski Meets The Long Goodbye

18 hours ago

As follow-up to the critical darling The Master, Paul Thomas Anderson is bringing us Inherent Vice, a 1970s-set crime drama based on the Thomas Pynchon novel about a drug-fueled detective on a search for his missing ex-girlfriend. His cast includes Jena Malone, Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, and Maya Rudolph. This much-anticipated film isn't scheduled to hit theaters until December, but one insider has tipped what fans should expect from P.T. Anderson's latest. The Film Stage spoke with an audience member from an early screening of the film. Read this unnamed viewer's impressions below: "Mix together The Big Lebowski and Altman.s The Long Goodbye, turn it into a two-and-a-half hour Pt Anderson epic and you.re getting close to the awesome experience of Inherent Vice. Even Joaquin Phoenix.s performance has echoes of 70′s Elliot Gould with a touch of The Dude. »

Could Die Hard 6 Reunite Bruce Willis With Samuel L. Jackson?

18 hours ago

In certain circles, John McTiernan.s Die Hard with a Vengeance is viewed as the best of the five-film franchise. Better than the original. Those people are insane (and insanely wrong), but they are the ones who.ll be most excited by the rumor that.s making the rounds this morning. A tweet posted by Latino Review.s scooper Elmayimbe claims that 20th Century Fox is on the hunt for new Die Hard story pitches, with one specific caveat: Twitter Scoop: Fox is meeting writers for takes on next Die Hard. It has to involve John McClane And Samuel Jackson's Zeus Carver character!. elmayimbe (@elmayimbe) April 14, 2014 We really want to go down this road? The most recent Die Hard movie, the Russia-set A Good Day to Die Hard was a travesty that completely forgot all of the reasons why fans have grown invested in Bruce Willis. vulnerable anti-hero, John McClane, »
