New Godzilla TV Spot Emphasizes Grief, Chaos and Nature's Order

1 hour ago

"It's not the end of the world" is a phrase that takes on new meaning when it kind of is. Or at the very least, when a giant monster starts tearing things up, as is the case for Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, a new take on a classic monster story. The latest TV spot for the film spends most of its time focusing on the human element, as we see some of the characters whose lives have been -- or are about to be -- greatly affected by what's to come. The spot begins with Bryan Cranston talking about losing his wife. We got to see a bit of that situation in the extended look, which revealed some sort of incident taking place in a lab. Something goes wrong and Cranston's character has to seal off a part of the facility before his wife has time to get out. His »

10 Hilarious Movies That Prove 'Spoof' Isn't A Dirty Word

3 hours ago

When did "spoof" become such a dirty word? There once was a time when filmmakers like Mel Brooks (Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein) and brilliant comedians like the late Leslie Nielsen (Airplane!, The Naked Gun) mastered the art of parody. No film genre was safe. Nowadays, however, movies like Michael Tiddes. A Haunted House 2 arrive in theaters with a thundering eye roll. When did things go so wrong? Open Road Films didn.t screen Marlon Wayans. comedy sequel for critics. (I know, right?) That gave us an excuse to go back and celebrate the finest entries in the spoof genres. movies that packed in the laughs and took advantage of the creative leeway that comes with assuming a familiar genre. Surely you love these 10 vintage spoof movies. We apologize for calling you Shirley. And, of course, we want to hear from you! Tell us your favorite spoof movies in the »

5 hours ago

Everything is awesome.or it will be, as soon as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases this winter.s The Lego Movie onto Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. The movie won.t actually be released into homes until June, which means we still have a while to wait, but Warner Bros. is promising a set with multiple editions and plenty of extras for the kiddos and adults with plenty of kiddo inside of them. The Lego Movie stars Chris Pratt as Emmet, an unpopular Lego minifigure who gets mistaken for a masterbuilder and gets taken on an extremely cool adventure featuring a slew of characters from the Lego canon, including Lego Batman (Will Arnett), 1980 spaceman Benny (Charlie Day), pirate Metal Beard (Ron Swanson) and a lovely lady Lego named Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks).

X-Men Fans: It's Ok To Still Be Excited For Days Of Future Past

5 hours ago

It.s Ok to still be excited for X-Men: Days of Future Past. I know it doesn.t feel that way right now. Comments on social media and posts on various message boards suggest that the accusations being lobbed at X-Men director Bryan Singer are coloring people.s opinions of 20th Century Fox.s upcoming sequel. Our own Mike Reyes touched on the internal conflict fans currently wrestle with in his report that Singer planned to skip this weekend.s X-Men: Days of Future Past panel at WonderCon in Anaheim, California. The hesitancy to embrace Singer.s movie, at the moment, is totally understandable. It.s an unfortunate consequence of the uncomfortable accusations. But I also believe it is an unnecessary reaction, and one that.s only affecting you, personally. The movie won.t change regardless of the outcome of the allegations raised against Singer. And if you were ecstatic »

Batman Vs. Superman Opening Early Overseas?

7 hours ago

It.s the showdown of the century. Marvel.s Captain America 3 is coming off the heels of a megahit, and following the events of Avengers: Age Of Ultron. And Warner Bros. is doing the unthinkable, teaming DC's two biggest superheroes in Batman Vs. Superman, refusing to back down. While those release dates are more than two years away, people keep expecting one of them to back down. And it looks like Warner Bros. is inching forward. The UK Film Distributor's Association just unveiled a couple of release dates for 2016. One is Universal.s The Mummy, which will bow on April 22nd, 2016, the same release date it has in America. But there is the Batman/Superman film, clocking in at April 29th, one week before its American release on May 6, 2016. We have reached out to Warner Bros. for confirmation, and are awaiting a reply. So, to recap: Marvel seized the date, »

Bryan Singer To Skip X-Men: Days Of Future Past WonderCon Panel

8 hours ago

It was a calamity that happened almost overnight: reports started to break that Bryan Singer, director of the X-Men franchise past and present, was being accused of sexually assaulting a 17 year old boy back in 1998. In a story that sounds like a sequel to Eyes Wide Shut, the victim.s case details wild house parties that routinely involved adult males chasing after young males. We.ve previously covered the details of the allegations, as well as Mr. Singer.s reaction to them, but now we have something new to report in what looks to be a long term story. The latest scoop from Deadline is that Mr. Singer was scheduled to appear at the WonderCon convention in Anaheim this weekend, but he is now withdrawing his attendance. In his place, writer and producer Simon Kinsberg will be attending to talk up the latest X-Men film, Days of Future Past. What »

Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Christmas Comedy Gets A Release Date

8 hours ago

Tis the season to spend it with Seth Rogen and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The two had teamed for a Christmas-themed film for Sony, which was being eyed as a potential hit for the colder months. It should be no surprise, ultimately, that the project has received a tidy, warm holiday release date. The untitled film, which will be directed by Jonathan Levine, will land on December 11th, 2015. The picture features Rogen (who.ll soon be seen in Neighbors and The Interview), Levitt (who will pop up in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) and a third friend for a night on the town on Christmas Eve, an annual tradition that likely involves a bit of bad behavior. Or maybe the three volunteer at soup kitchens, go to church and visit an orphanage. No details have been released yet, so you can only guess for now. This release date pits this »

15 Widely Released 2010 Movies We Bet You Won't Recognize

9 hours ago

If I asked you what job you had four years ago, you could probably tell me. Hell, you could probably tell me who you were dating/ married to, what kind of dog you had and what kind of car you drove too. These basic facts are burned into your brain, but what about the most important things? What about all the movies you saw and all the ones that obsessively advertised at you but didn.t earn your business? Could you remember all of them? Luckily, you don.t need to speculate. The heroes here at Cinema Blend have devised a quiz to help you figure out just how many movies you remember from four years ago. As a reminder, four years ago was 2010, a perfectly passable twelve month chunk that gave us such favorites as Toy Story 3, Black Swan, The King.s Speech, The Social Network and my »

Maleficent Featurette Teases A Reinvention, Not A Retelling Of Sleeping Beauty

9 hours ago

Rather than delivering a live-action remake of Sleeping Beauty, Disney has taken more of a Wicked approach with Maleficent in focusing its attention on the villain of the story. As screenwriter Linda Woolverton describes the concept in the new featurette, Maleficent is "a reinvention, not just a retelling of the same story." It's a risk, no doubt, as it does involve tinkering with a beloved classic. But from everything we've seen, including some of the thrilling footage revealed in this featurette, that risk may very well pay off. In the latest promotional video, stars Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, writer Linda Woolverton and director Robert Stromberg discuss revising the classic story from a new angle. Those familiar with Sleeping Beauty might agree that Maleficent is a pretty underdeveloped villain. In the animated film, she shows up at Aurora's christening, interrupting the fairies as they're bestowing their gifts on the baby. »

Steven Spielberg Reteams With Tony Kushner For The Kidnapping Of Edgardo Mortara

11 hours ago

Steven Spielberg is no stranger to docudramas. When the three-time Academy Award winner gears up to bring a true story to the big screen, he tends to have his pick of talent in front of and behind the camera. For his latest dive into docudrama, Spielberg is reuniting with Tony Kushner, who penned Spielberg's Oscar-winning Lincoln as well as his critically praised Munich. Variety reports Spielberg and Kushner will collaborate on The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, a religious drama which will be produced by DreamWorks and the Weinstein Company. The film will follow the story of Edgardo Mortara, a Jewish boy who was taken from his parents by the Papal State of Italy in 1858 so he would be raised as a Catholic. Kushner will be adapting the screenplay from the nonfiction book The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, written by David I. Kertzer. Read the book's Amazon synopsis below: "Bologna: nightfall, »

Marion Cotillard Chases Love and Freedom In The Immigrant Trailer

22 hours ago

Movies, much like the weather, used to operate on strictly seasonal patterns. It used to be that you would have a separate season for prestige pushes and another season for big ticket tent-poles, with crap shoots scheduled in the off seasons in between. But as the market has gotten more and more crowded, studios have became bolder and bolder with scheduling their ringers for seasons where they normally wouldn't "belong". This counter-programming strategy seems to work to a certain extent, with Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel being an excellent example. The film was released this past March, and managed to clean up. With a trailer that invokes cinema classics before it, and a musical refrain that already sounds like it's ready to be conducted by William Ross, James Gray's The Immigrant looks like it's ready to make a name for itself just as the summer box office »

Clint Eastwood's 'Jersey Boys' Debuts Its First Trailer

23 hours ago

Clint Eastwood has hit a bit of a rough patch in his directing career. Since getting his last Oscar nomination in 2007, his work has ranged from the underwhelming (Changeling, Gran Torino, Invictus) to downright bad (Hereafter, J. Edgar). Given the the star's status as a Hollywood icon, one truly hopes that he can turn things around before he is ready to retire, and today we get our first look at his latest effort. Apple has debuted the premiere trailer for Eastwood's upcoming musical Jersey Boys, and you can watch it embedded above. Based on the true story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and starring John Lloyd Young, Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda, Vincent Piazza, and Christopher Walken, Jersey Boys is an adaptation of the Broadway play of the same name. The story begins in 1960s New Jersey and follows the various members of the rock group as they came together »

Godzilla Toys Provide A Good Look At The Reboot's Other Monster

17 April 2014 4:29 PM, PDT

We've know since early last year that Gareth Edwards' upcoming Godzilla reboot would feature a monster other than just the eponymous one - but even though we've seen many trailers for the film we have yet to get a good look at it. Footage has shown hints of a giant flying creature and a weird foot, but for the most part all of the attention has been put on the King of the Monsters. Thanks to the toy website SciFiJapan, however, we now have a very good idea of what we can expect. The site has run images of many, many, many different kinds of promotional items that will be released alongside Godzilla in theaters, and while most of the shots are of the titular beast, the collection also includes images of an eight-legged winged creature called Muto. Scroll through the images below to both the different variations of »

Watch: Spider-Man Fan Builds His Own Electromagnetic Webshooters

17 April 2014 3:09 PM, PDT

I have some news that might be kind of hard to hear: you are never going to become Spider-Man. Radioactive spiders don't exist, humans can't naturally stick to walls with their hands and feet, and a person trying to swing from a skyscraper with "webbing" would probably rip their arms right out of their sockets. But while some of the most important aspects of the character are really unattainable in our universe, the same cannot be said about all of the characteristics. Take, for example, the work being by German craftsman Patrick Priebe. As you can see in the video above it actually is possible to create a wrist-mounted apparatus that shoots out a harpoon and a line of string strong enough to tug on. Preventing this from being the fully real deal is the fact that Pribe has yet to invent a special sticky, webbing-like polymer to fire out »

Three X-Men: Days Of Future Past Featurettes Reveal Even More New Footage

17 April 2014 1:25 PM, PDT

20th Century Fox waited nearly five full months between trailer releases promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past, but now it's safe to say that the media blitz is on. It began with a clip from the opening scene of the film released on Sunday, which was followed by an amazing new trailer on Tuesday and a pair of featurettes on Wednesday. The studio really, really wants to make sure that you're excited for their next big comic book movie, though, so that's why today we're getting yet another three new featurettes, courtesy of Norton. Unlike the videos that came out yesterday, which centered on two very specific scenes being filmed during the movie's production, these new ones are a bit less focused. What they do bring to the table is some brand new footage that hasn't been featured in any of the trailers yet, pus a bit of commentary from »

Eli Roth's The Green Inferno Debuts First Flesh-Eating Trailer

17 April 2014 12:03 PM, PDT

Guess who's on the menu tonight? People. Above is the trailer for the new Eli Roth film The Green Inferno, courtesy of Moviefone, a down-and-dirty horror film about a group of Americans who foolishly decided to visit Peru. Don't go to Peru, idiots. Nothing but cannibals there! This is actually a remake, of sorts, to 1988's Natura Contro, which also went by the titles The Green Inferno and Cannibal Holocaust II, because all the most awesome horror movies have multiple titles. It's directed by Antonio Climati, who only directed documentaries, though he served as a cinematographer for Mondo Cane, Goodbye Uncle Tom and Umberto Lenzi's Primal Rage. As an old-school horror fan who has seen Cannibal Holocaust a couple of times, I have never ever heard of Natura Contro, which apparently has no real connection to Cannibal Holocaust other than the marketing hook of the title.
