Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials Trailer Gets the Minecraft Treatment

1 hour ago

A little more than a month ago, we saw the first trailer for Wes Ball's Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, which took the cast out of the Glade and into the Scorch. Now, those same characters have been transformed from photogenic humans into blocky approximations of their former selves. No, it has nothing to do with Wckd's experiments; the trailer has simply undergone the Minecraft treatment. Why? Because the sequel's mod is coming soon to the popular game and, despite the odd clash of tones between the game and the action movie, it's a pretty cool look at the expansive world of the Scorch. If you want a better look at the world of The Scorch Trials, the human version that is, then head on over to this image article. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Brodie-SangsterKaya Scodelario, Nathalie Emmanuel, Aidan GillenGiancarlo EspositoKi Hong LeeRosa Salazar and Jacob Lofland, »

Win Tickets to the Comic-Con Screening of X-men: Days Of Future Past – Rogue Cut

1 hour ago

Much was made about the fact that while Anna Paquin shot scenes for the superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past, her character’s future-set scenes were ultimately cut from the film. 20th Century Fox was attuned to the fan interest, however, and is thus releasing X-Men: Days of Future Past – Rogue Cut on DVD and Blu-ray next month, with Paquin’s scenes put back into the film. However, if you’re coming to San Diego Comic-Con next week, you might be able to see the Rogue Cut even earlier than the July 14th Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD release. Fox is hosting a screening of the Rogue Cut at San Diego Comic-Con on July 11th at the Reading Gaslamp Cinema at 8:00pm, and were here at Collider have been provided with VIP passes to give away to 10 lucky readers, who will be granted access to the screening with a guest. »

Kevin Feige Reveals When Spider-man, Thor 3, and More Start Filming

1 hour ago

The Marvel Studios train is a busy one, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Back in 2007, the studio was forging ahead with its first two films, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk. Now, in the post-Avengers world, Marvel is juggling a schedule that sees the studio amping up to releasing three films a year starting in 2017, where we’ll get Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man, and Thor: Ragnarok within the span of six months. With such enticing projects on the horizon, fans are understandably curious about when and where everything starts filming. Steve recently spoke with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at the press day for Ant-Man, and he revealed the studio’s production plans for the next few films: “We literally just crossed the halfway mark of [Captain America:] Civil War last week, it’s day 42 or 43 of 80. We start filming Doctor Strange in London in November. We »

The Best Films of 2015 So Far

1 hour ago

A little over 300 films have debuted in the United States so far in 2015, and one can presume that anywhere from 300 to 450 more will see release before the end of the year. That’s a lot of movies – up by about 150 releases since 2010 - and really only a handful of those are sequels or franchise monoliths like Jurassic World or Avengers: Age of Ultron. Though superheroes, dinosaurs, and cartoons still rule the box office, the cinephile event of the year was an auteur-backed action film with minimal use of CGI, namely Mad Max: Fury Road, one that still managed to land in the top-ten grossers of the year. That being said, and as great as George Miller’s wild tempest of a film is, there’s no denying that it also benefitted from name recognition, as did 4/5 of the films that comprise the top 25 box-office grossers of 2015. As the aforementioned number suggested, »

Snowden Trailer Teases Oliver Stone’s Nsa Leaker Drama

1 hour ago

Open Road Films has released the first teaser trailer for Oliver Stone’s upcoming thriller Snowden. The film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as government contracter Edward Snowden and recounts how he obtained and absconded with thousands of classified Nsa documents, which he then disseminated to the press in the interest of informing the public about privacy breaches from its own government. This teaser doesn't show any footage so it doesn't really give us any indication of whether this'll be any good or not--it's more of an announcement that Oliver Stone made an Edward Snowden movie. I'm curious to see what Stone put together, but can't say I'm hopeful just yet given Stone's recent output. JFK was a long time ago. Watch the teaser trailer below. The film opens in theaters on December 25th and also stars Shailene Woodley, Melissa Leo, Zachary Quinto, Tom Wilkinson, Rhys Ifans, and Nicolas Cage. Here's »

Back To The Future Remake Will Happen Over Robert Zemeckis’ Dead Body

3 hours ago

Familiar IP is everything these days, it seems. Studios will (somewhat begrudgingly) continue to churn out original properties, but their bread and butter is sequels, reboots, and remakes—and you can’t blame them. The top three films of the year so far at the box office are all sequels, with Jurassic World positively rolling in the dough as it breaks record after record. Movie tickets are expensive, and audiences are more likely to spend their money on something they’re already pretty sure they’ll like rather than take a chance on something unfamiliar. Every now and then they'll take a chance, as original films like Spy and Inside Out have proven to be big hits, but even so those movies are tinged with familiarity—the Melissa McCarthy/Paul Feig duo for Spy, and the Pixar brand for Inside Out. And with Jurassic World—a sequel in a franchise »

Scream Review: MTV’s Teen-Horror Series Strains To Be Hip, Compelling

3 hours ago

About halfway through the pilot of MTV's Scream, adapted from the Wes Craven franchise of the same name, Noah (John Karna), a nerdy teen, goes meta and describes the challenges of adapting a slasher film for television. It's meant to be playful, but the entire discussion, in which Dario Argento and Horace Walpole are name-dropped, lands with a thud, bereft of the little details or sense of genuine fandom that added flavor to similar diatribes delivered by Jamie Kennedy's character in the first two Scream films. It would be one thing if the Scream series was attempting to subvert or comment on current horror trends - rampant self-seriousness, hectic and uncaring camerawork, lazy auditory scares, etc. -  but as the pilot brazenly admits, that's not what this show is about. [caption id="attachment_479785" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via MTV[/caption] Instead, as Noah once again opines, Scream is meant to be Friday Night Lights with a body count, »

Secret In Their Eyes Trailer: Roberts, Ejiofor, and Kidman Track a Killer

4 hours ago

Stx Entertainment has released a new trailer for the upcoming thriller Secret in Their Eyes. Based on the 2009 Argentine film of the same name, the movie stars Julia Roberts and Chiwetel Ejiofor as FBI agents Jess and Ray, respectively, whose lives are turned upside down when Jess’ daughter is found murdered, for seemingly no reason. Years later, their inability to bring the killer to justice still haunts Ray—until he finds a new lead that may prove integral to catching the murderer and giving his colleague (and himself) some peace. The dramatic thriller is the third directorial effort from Billy Ray, who previously wrote and helmed Shattered Glass and Breach but is best known for penning the screenplays for films like The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips. I’ve not seen the original Secret in Their Eyes so I can only speak to Ray’s iteration, but the film looks »

Ghostbusters: Paul Feig Reveals Proton Pack in New Image

4 hours ago

Social media has not only changed the way we live our daily lives, it’s also heavily impacted movie marketing. Sometimes it can be grating, like forcing contrived hashtags down people’s throats. But sometimes it can be smart, like the way filmmakers such as Zack Snyder and Bryan Singer tease images and first-looks from their highly anticipated upcoming films via their Twitter and Instagram handles. Director Paul Feig looks to be going a similar route with his Ghostbusters reboot, and after sharing an image of the new costumes last night, he’s now revealed a close-up look at the film’s iteration of the proton pack. The proton pack is, of course, the device that allows for all the ghost-busting in the first place, as it captures spirits and drives them into ghost traps. Much like the reboot’s costumes, this new proton pack is very similar to the original. »

Victor Garber Talks Big Game, Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, and More

12 hours ago

The action-adventure flick Big Game sees the President of the United States (Samuel L. Jackson) escaping from a crashing Air Force One into the rugged countryside of Finland. There, he comes across a young 13-year-old (Onni Tommila) on a traditional quest to prove he can survive 24 hours alone in the wild, and the unlikely duo must escape a group of kidnappers who are hot on their trail and looking to take the President. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Victor Garber talked about playing the Vice President to Samuel L. Jackson’s President, what attracted him to Big Game, how he approaches his roles, and his fondest memories from this shoot. He also talked about why Alias was such a turning point in his career, being a part of the DC comic book universe, playing Dr. Martin Stein on The CW’s The Flash and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow, »

Ant-man Clip: Paul Rudd Goes on His First Ant-Sized Adventure … in a Bathtub

14 hours ago

Back in April the very first Ant-Man clip hit the web revealing how Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) finds the Ant-Man suit, but now it's time to catch a glimpse of what happens when he puts it on for the first time. Marvel just posted the first official clip from the film in which Lang makes the mistake of giving the suit a test run in a bathtub. It's one thing to show off snippets of Ant-Man in action in a trailer, but it's another to see Lang shrink down to the size of an ant in the context of a lengthier scene. I've had some fun with the marketing campaign thus far, but this clip is the first promo to suggest that the film could sustain the zany adventure and sell Ant-Man as a very capable hero. Check out the first Ant-Man clip for yourself below. The film is due »

Over 25 New Trainwreck Pictures Featuring LeBron James, Tilda Swinton and More

15 hours ago

Trainwreck debuted as a work-in-progress at SXSW back in March, but hopefully Judd Apatow hasn't changed much since because the cut screened there was fantastic. Amy Schumer wrote the script and also stars as Amy, a young professional living in New York City who firmly believes that monogamy isn’t realistic. However, that changes when she starts to fall for the subject that she's writing a magazine article about - the super sweet and successful sports doctor Aaron Conners (Bill Hader). With the film's July 17th nationwide release fast approaching, Universal just unveiled a whole batch of hi-res Trainwreck pictures featuring Schumer and Hader as well as co-stars Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda SwintonLeBron James and Vanessa Bayer. You can see them all for yourself below and, in case you missed it, click here to check out my Trainwreck review from SXSW.

Ghostbusters Uniforms Revealed by Paul Feig in Behind-the-Scenes Image

18 hours ago

A little less than two weeks ago, Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot kicked off filming in Boston. We got our first look at Kristen Wigg, Melissa McCarthy, and Kate McKinnon in costume soon after, and today we've got a behind-the-scenes peek at the title characters' new uniforms. Even though we didn't see co-star Leslie Jones in the earlier set photos, I'm happy to report that she does indeed have a 'bustin uniform hanging on the rack alongside those of her team members. All we know about Wigg and McCarthy's characters so far is that, in the past, they were unsuccessful authors of a book theorizing that ghosts are real, only to reunite years later once word of this laughable publication gets Wigg kicked out of her prestigious teaching position at Columbia University. Somewhere along they way they team up with McKinnon and Jones, and then presumably decide to get matching uniforms. »

First Star Trek 3 Image Revealed by Director Justin Lin; Title Confirmed

19 hours ago

It's Justin Lin's first time at the helm of a Star Trek movie and he's already putting social media to good use. In less than 140 characters, Lin managed to not only reveal the first behind-the-scenes image from Star Trek 3, he also so much as confirmed the threequel's presumed title, Star Trek Beyond. Now whether the title is formatted this way to appease the hashtag gods or just to continue the trend of eschewing colons (like Star Trek Into Darkness), I'm not entirely sure just yet. We'll certainly find out more soon, but for now let's take a look at Lin's Tweet itself. Let the next Starfleet voyage begin! #StarTrekBeyond #Llap pic.twitter.com/VZh9YvJgqA — Justin Lin (@trailingjohnson) June 29, 2015 So as you can see, Lin's got a lot of info packed into this one unassuming little Tweet. First up, we get a new look at the "Starfleet: United Federation of Planets" patch. »

Hitman: Agent 47 TV Spot and Poster Hit You Where You Least Expect It

19 hours ago

The first full trailer for Aleksander Bach's Hitman: Agent 47 left no doubt that it would be an insane, over-the-top action flick on par with the film's videogame origins. It did, however, reveal quite a bit more of the plot than I would have liked, even if most of the film's twists and turns remain unspoiled. That being said, I much prefer seeing short snippets of the assassin at work, like those seen in this newly released TV spot. We also have a new international poster for you to feast your eyes on. Starring Rupert Friend in the title role, with Zachary Quinto, Hannah WareCiarán Hinds, and Thomas Kretschmann, Hitman: Agent 47 opens in theaters August 21st. Watch the new TV spot below: Here’s the official synopsis from 20th Century Fox: Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, »

Terminator Salvation Revisited: “You Cannot Save John Connor”

20 hours ago

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines showed that a Terminator universe without James Cameron was its own kind of wasteland. Schwarzenegger wasn’t enough, and retreading the same premise as T2—T-800 comes back in time to protect John Connor from a more advanced Terminator—made the third installment mostly pointless. The only part of that movie that significantly moved anything forward was the ending, and we already knew where that ending would take us. Terminator Salvation wasn’t so much a salvation for the franchise, but a salvage operation. Director McG went for the reality that the first three movies had tried to avoid, and while Salvation removes all hope from the previous installments, it also theoretically could have carved its own path. It’s set in the future; it doesn’t have Arnold Schwarzenegger (the crummy body double and digital masking doesn’t count); and it introduces us »

I Am Chris Farley Trailer Reveals Two Sides to the Late Comedian

21 hours ago

Like many of you, I grew up watching Chris Farley on big and small screens. Whether it was the bit parts in comedy movies starring his more successful (at the time) Saturday Night Live co-stars, his scene-stealing characters on the same late-night skit show, or his starring movie roles alongside David Spade, Farley's comedic talent always loomed large. He seemed impossible to ignore, an unstoppable force of physical comedy (and surprisingly agility) who was destined for greatness. But rather than following in the footsteps of comedians who went on to long and successful careers, Farley's path to an early death due to a drug overdose closely resembled that of his comedy idol, John Belushi. While it's easy to get choked up wondering "What could have been?" for the 33-year-old star, a new documentary looks to revisit his legacy in a biography that explores Farley's life, character, and career through the »

Kevin Feige Talks Thor: Ragnarok Director; Comments on Kenneth Branagh Rumor

22 hours ago

While just about every Marvel character will be suiting up for Captain America: Civil War, it’s a near-certainty that Thor won’t be joining the party. That means we may not seem him again until his next solo film, Thor: Ragnarok, which opens on November 3, 2017. While that’s still five films away, Marvel is getting the wheels moving faster than you might think. Steve recently spoke to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at the press day for Ant-Man, and they touched on Thor 3. Feige says, “probably towards the end of the summer we would announce a filmmaker and a writer. May be the same person, I don’t know, may be two different people.” [caption id="attachment_451351" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Marvel[/caption] Having it be one and the same person, would be a change of pace for Marvel. Now that Joss Whedon has left, James Gunn is the only writer-director left working for the studio. »

Sandman and Other DC-Vertigo Movies Heading to New Line

22 hours ago

Warner Bros. is shifting some of its comic book properties to a different studio. In an effort to consolidate focus on its DC Movie Universe, which includes Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, and Wonder Woman in the immediate future, Deadline reports that the studio is opting to move properties under the DC-owned Vertigo comics imprint to sister studio New Line Cinema. This includes Sandman, the film adaptation of the Neil Gaiman comic that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is attached to direct and star in, as well as Constantine, Dark Universe, Preacher, and Lucifer. Vertigo was originally created to focus on comics that did not meet the guidelines of the Comics Code Authority, which means the Vertigo books were inherently darker, edgier, and more adult in contrast to the DC comics. Obviously the lines have blurred in recent years, especially in the film world where we have a rather dark-looking »

Teen Wolf Showrunner Jeff Davis Talks Senior Year, Breaking Points, and More

23 hours ago

On Season 5 of the popular MTV series Teen Wolf, Scott (Tyler Posey) and his friends are dealing with senior year and find themselves facing the possibility of a future without each other, as they think about what direction life might take them. Of course, it wouldn’t be Beacon Hills, if outside forces weren’t also plotting to break the Pack apart, and this season’s new villains are using a combination of science and the supernatural for a malevolent and mysterious purpose that will eventually pit this tight group of friends against their greatest enemy yet. During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, showrunner Jeff Davis talked about how formidable the Dread Doctors will be this season, why they’re like no villain we’ve seen on the show before, how much senior year will affect them, telling a 20-episode story with a big mid-point episode, whether viewers »
