3 hours ago

This week was poised to act as the big unveiling of Universal’s Jurassic World trailer, but then Disney had to go ahead and announce a Friday debut for the first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer.  No matter, Universal moved the release of its dino-infused sequel teaser up a couple of days, giving us our first look at director Colin Trevorrow’s take on the Jurassic Park universe this morning.  Universal released a handful of new images from the film earlier as well, but we’ve gone ahead and taken screengrabs of some of the more interesting/notable shots from the trailer and compiled them in one convenient location for you perusing pleasure. Check out over 20 images from the Jurassic World trailer after the jump.  The film stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas HowardNick RobinsonTy Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan KhanJake JohnsonOmar Sy, and Judy Greer. »

The Flash Recap: “Power Outage”

3 hours ago

Often, in superhero fare, fans have to wait for a sequel or a second season to feature two big bad villains in the same showing.  The Flash decided to change that up tonight by bringing two antagonists front and center, and allowing them to cause havoc on two separate fronts.  The interesting thing with "Power Outage" was that the writers didn't let the title hero save the day in both places (even though his speed could have let him do so), choosing instead to let the not-so-helpless non-metahumans take care of their own problems.  Perhaps the more interesting thing is that the biggest villain isn't waiting in the wings, he's hiding in plain sight and biding his time.  And the most interesting thing is how The CW managed to take a series about a guy who runs really fast and quickly turn it into one of the most entertaining hours on television right now. »

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom McGrath Talk The Penguins Of Madagascar, Favorite Animated Movies, and More

3 hours ago

Opening tomorrow is Eric Darnell and Simon J. Smith's The Penguins of Madagascar.  DreamWorks Animation's upcoming spinoff features the espionage-minded birds as they go off on a mission to bring down the nefarious octopus Dave (John Malkovich) even though they end up getting in the way of the professional spy organization the North Wind, which is led by the wolf "Classified" (Benedict Cumberbatch).  The movie also features the voices of Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, and Peter Stormare.  For more on the film, check out the trailer. To help promote the film, I recently got to talk with Benedict Cumberbatch (he plays Agent Classified) and Tom McGrath (he voices Skipper).  They talked about the relationship between Agent Classified and the Penguins, script changes during production, how recording their dialogue separately can be an advantage, and their favorite animated movies.  Hit the jump for what they had to say.

Jennifer Aniston Goes Dramatic in New Cake Trailer

6 hours ago

A new Cake trailer has been released for director Daniel Barnz’s upcoming drama.  The film stars Jennifer Aniston as a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a member of her chronic pain support group.  When she starts delving into the woman’s life, she develops a relationship with her widower and grapples with her own personal tragedy.  I think Aniston’s a really talented comedic actress, so I’m very interested by the prospect of seeing her lead a dramatic film.  Her performance drew a bit of Oscar buzz after the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and she certainly appears to bring a significant amount of complexity to the role. Check out the new Cake trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Anna KendrickSam WorthingtonChris MessinaFelicity HuffmanWilliam H. MacyBritt RobertsonLucy WaltersCamille ManaManuel Garcia Rulfo, »

Game Of Thrones Season 5 Teaser Sees Darkness

6 hours ago

We’re still about five months away from the premiere of Game of Thrones’ fifth season, but HBO is ready to kick off the long-lead marketing today (which is fitting given this week's heavy quantity of big trailers).  A very brief Game of Thrones Season 5 teaser has been released online that’s more enigmatic than it is revealing, but it does offer a tiny bit of footage from the new season.  For fear of spoiling who’s still alive in the show’s fifth season I won’t go into anymore detail here, but fans of the books might spot a clue or two for what’s in store.  This new season could mark a turning point for the show, as showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss caught up with George R.R. Martin’s book series in a couple of the show’s major storylines last season and have said »

Guillermo del Toro Says Pacific Rim 2 Begins a Few Years After Pacific Rim in a Kaiju-Free World; Charlie Day and Burn Gorman to Return

7 hours ago

About a month ago Guillermo del Toro told Haleigh that he’s going in a very different direction with Pacific Rim 2.  Some favorite characters from the first film will return, but others won’t because del Toro is hoping to use them at the end of Pacific Rim 2 in an effort to ramp things up for a third film. Who are the lucky ones to make it into Pac Rim 2?  We’ve got two names for you – Charlie Day and Burn Gorman.  While talking to del Toro about the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of The Strain season 1, he told me that Day’s Geiszler and Gorman’s Gottlieb will return for the second film which picks up a few years after the events of the first.  Hit the jump for more. First off, here’s what del Toro had to say about the Pacific Rim 2 timeline: »

Now You See Me 2 Title Revealed

7 hours ago

2013’s Now You See Me was one of those quiet box office successes that kind of flew under the radar.  The magician-centric heist picture didn’t garner great reviews, but it opened to a solid $29.3 million and went on to gross $351.7 million worldwide.  With an international hit on its hands, Lionsgate/Summit unsurprisingly put the wheels in motion for a sequel.  G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu takes over from previous helmer Louis Leterrier this time around with the entire main cast returning plus Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, and Jay Chou (The Green Hornet).  And now that filming is set to get underway soon, star Mark Ruffalo has revealed the official Now You See Me 2 title: Now You See Me: The Second Act.  More after the jump. With pre-production on the sequel now underway, Ruffalo opted to break the news of the Now You See Me 2 »

Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon to Star in Limited Series Big Little Lies from David E. Kelley

7 hours ago

It’s no secret that the “limited series” (ie. a fancy new word for miniseries) is now one of the most popular trends in television.  Telling a close-ended story over a short amount of episodes not only allows the material to remain creatively fresh and satisfying, but the relatively short time commitment allows for bigger actors to make the move to TV.  True Detective did it, Fargo did it, and now a pair of high-profile actresses are taking the limited series dive.  Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are poised to lead a limited series adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s book Big Little Lies with veteran TV producer David E. Kelley set to pen the script.  More after the jump. Per THR, Witherspoon and Kidman have committed to starring in Big Little Lies with Kelley attached to pen the script, though a network home has yet to be determined.  The project »

Ridley Scott Says He Won’t Direct Blade Runner 2 But It Starts Shooting in 2015; Harrison Ford Appears in the Third Act

8 hours ago

For a filmmaker of 76 years of age, Ridley Scott is showing no signs of slowing down.  He just shot Prometheus, The Counselor, and this December’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings in quick succession, and while he’s prepping the sci-fi thriller The Martian to start production early next year, he’s also still talking about sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner.  It’s the latter that he addresses today, revealing that while he won’t be directing Blade Runner 2, it is poised to begin production next year.  That’s somewhat surprising news given that we haven’t heard anything about a replacement director being set, but Scott now says he’ll only be involved in the picture as a producer.  However, he also let slip how Harrison Ford fits into the film’s story.  More after the jump. In a lengthy profile in Variety, it’s mentioned that »

Horrible Bosses 2 Review

8 hours ago

While 2011's Horrible Bosses doesn't hold up quite as well as I had hoped it would, the chemistry between leads Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis is still a lot of fun.  Watching the three actors bounce off each other is electric as they bicker and argue like foul-mouthed children.  Comedy sequels are always tough, but Horrible Bosses 2 makes the wise decision to shake things up not only in terms of avoiding a rehash of the first film's plot, but also changing the tone of the comedy and the trio's dynamic.  Although the movie falters at the end, Horrible Bosses 2 feels surprisingly fresh while never losing what made the original work so well. Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis), and Dale (Day) have decided to go into business for themselves, and they have a solid (albeit silly) invention in the "Shower Buddy", a device that helps automate the showering process. »

Penguins Of Madagascar Review

8 hours ago

Can scene-stealers carry a movie?  Or do some characters only work best in small doses?  Even though they don't have big-name voice actors, the espionage-minded penguins from the Madagascar franchise have consistently been more appealing than the central characters.  They almost feel like they're more for the adults in the audience and the kids can have the slapstick and fart jokes.  Now Skipper (Tom McGrath), Kowalski (Chris Miller), Rico (Conrad Vernon), and Private (Christopher Knights) have taken center stage, and their spin-off, Penguins of Madagascar, easily surpasses the first two Madagascar films (I didn't even bother with the third) through its rapid-fire wit, cuteness, and offbeat jokes that will amuse kids and adults alike. After seeing crack squad's first mission, we cut to the present and see the Penguins squaring off against Dave (John Malkovich), a mad scientist/octopus who poses as a human by day, but by night harbors »

Book to Screen: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 Is Better than the Book

9 hours ago

If you’ve read the third book of Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games trilogy, you’re well aware that Mockingjay has problems and is undoubtedly the most difficult book of the series to bring to screen.  Whereas The Hunger Games and Catching Fire had the benefit of following the clear-cut chain of events involved in the Hunger Games, Mockingjay is more of a free-for-all.  Katniss is holed up in District 13, the Hunger Games are a thing of the past and now it’s just about the rebels trying to figure out how to get an edge on President Snow and the Capitol.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that narrative, but for folks who’ve enjoyed the spectacle and structure of the Hunger Games, Mockingjay could be a serious adjustment. The same is true of the first half of Francis Lawrence’s big screen rendition, but it’s an adjustment worth making. »

Sherlock and Watson Get Dapper for 2015′s Sherlock Christmas Special

9 hours ago

When Sherlock returns for its Christmas Special in 2015, Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Watson (Martin Freeman) will be squaring off against Moriarty (Andrew Scott), but that doesn't mean they can't look snappy while doing it.  The BBC has released an image of the crime-solving duo donning some 19th century threads, and while this looks like a promo image, the BBC's Twitter account confirms that this is how they'll appear in the special.  Sherlock doesn't do dream sequences, so I'm intrigued as to why Sherlock and Watson are wearing some period garb.  Unfortunately, the answer is a long ways off. Hit the jump to check out the Sherlock Christmas Special image along with a shot of the read-through script. Via BBC One. #221back #Sherlock #notkidding pic.twitter.com/iTfDqfJI0R — BBC One (@BBCOne) November 25, 2014 This is what we've been doing today.

Jason Bateman Talks Horrible Bosses 2, The Family Fang, What He Learned Directing Bad Words, Ipo Man, and More

10 hours ago

Sean AndersHorrible Bosses 2 opens tomorrow with Jason BatemanCharlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis reprising their roles from the first film.  This time around they decide to be their own bosses by setting out on their own entrepreneurial venture.  When a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) steals their idea, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) and hold him for ransom.  Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, and Jamie Foxx all return for the sequel.  While Horrible Bosses 2 isn't going to win any awards, I'll admit that I laughed a lot mostly from the great chemistry between Bateman, Day and Sudeikis.  For more on the film, watch some clips, the trailer, or here's all our previous coverage. At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive interview with Jason Bateman.  He talked about not wanting to make a "stinky sequel," what it was like on set working with Sudeikis and Day, »

Hop in Some Gyroballs in 4 New Jurassic World Images Featuring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins

11 hours ago

Along with today's first Jurassic World trailer, Universal Pictures has also released four new images from the upcoming sequel.  The movie takes place 22 years after Jurassic Park and is set on a fully functional park on Isla Nublar.  The folks running Jurassic World think genetically modified dinosaurs are a good idea, and so naturally bad things happen.  These images show off one of the film's new doohickeys, a gyroball (not the official name, but I don't know what else to call it), which looks like it tumbled out of Oblivion and got a paintjob. Hit the jump to check out the new Jurassic World images.  The film opens in 3D on June 12, 2015, and stars Chris PrattBryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Ty Simpkins, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan KhanJake JohnsonOmar Sy, and Judy Greer.

Director Gabe Polsky Talks Red Army, How the Cold War Influenced Hockey, the Russian Five, and Werner Herzog’s Role as Executive Producer

11 hours ago

Gabe Polsky’s new film Red Army (check out Matt's review) is an exhilarating documentary about the Cold War on ice and how an incredibly oppressive system produced one of the greatest teams in sports history:  the Red Army Hockey Team of the late 70’s and 80’s.  The story is told from the perspective of its former captain and star defenseman, Slava Fetisov, who was at the center of an extraordinarily talented group of players – Sergei Marakov, Vladimir Krutov, Igor Larionov and Alexei Kasatonov – known as the Russian Five.  Fetisov’s impressive career took him from national hero to political enemy to Russian Minister of Sport under Vladimir Putin. In an exclusive interview, Polsky spoke about using hockey as a window into a larger personal and political story, what inspired him to structure his documentary around the legendary Red Army Hockey Team and one of its greatest players, why Fetisov was an interesting interview subject, »

First Pan Trailer Reveals Joe Wright’s Reimagining of the Classic Story Featuring Hugh Jackman

12 hours ago

Warner Bros. has released the first Pan trailer for director Joe Wright’s (Hanna) reimagining of the classic J.M. Barrie story Peter Pan.  The film finds newcomer Levi Miller’s young Pan, along with other young wartime orphans, being kidnapped by the men of the dreaded pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman), thus beginning a series of adventures in Neverland that shape the boy into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan.  I think Wright is a talented director, but it looks like he made a prequel to Hook. I couldn't help but laugh at the part in the trailer when kids from the Oliver Twist Home for Orphan Boys are abducted onto a flying ship.  "What happened to Peter?"  "He was kidnapped by Cirque du Soleil." Check out the first Pan trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Amanda Seyfried as Mary, »
