The 'Batkid Begins' Trailer Will Make You Shed a Tear or Two (Video)

13 hours ago

The world was captivated last November when 5-year-old leukemia survivor Miles Scott took to the streets of San Francisco as Batkid, fulfilling his dream of becoming Batman through the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Now, a documentary about how that event came together is currently in production, and a new trailer has debuted.

"Batkid Begins" reveals Miles's lifelong love of superheroes, and how his request to the Make-a-Wish Foundation of the Greater Bay Area morphed a simple dream into a cultural phenomenon. Make-a-Wish execs discuss the painstaking detail with which the event was planned, including choreographing actors to play the bad guys, building a custom car seat for Miles in a Batmobile, and drawing tens of thousands of people to transform San Francisco into Gotham, and its citizens into screaming, supportive fans of the pint-sized crime fighter.

We dare you to watch the trailer without breaking out into a huge grin. This is »

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista Get Weird in Our 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Unscripted (Video)

14 hours ago

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista sat down for the latest episode of Moviefone's Unscripted, and it didn't take long for things to get weird. Clearly more than comfortable with each other, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" stars spent plenty of time making themselves -- and the entire room -- laugh, with topics ranging from serious casting calls to ridiculous food-gorging tales.

Food gorging tales? Yup, Pratt hilariously describes his cheat days and Bautista even chimes in to explain Pratt's love for sausage platters -- and that's only half of it. The love between these stars is real, but don't take our word for it, watch for yourself.

Witness more other-worldly antics when "Guardians of the Galaxy" hits theaters Friday, August 1.

Norman Reedus Breaks Down Daryl and Beth's Relationship on 'The Walking Dead'

15 hours ago

Fans of "The Walking Dead" no doubt sensed a bit of sexual tension mounting between Daryl and Beth in the latter half of the show's fourth season, where the pair were stranded alone together, and began to to form an intense bond. But is there really a chance for romance for the pair?

Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl, shared his thoughts with Cinema Blend during an appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, noting that Beth offered Daryl, who had already suffered plenty throughout the series's run, a bit of hope.

"Beth was kind of like this long dark tunnel. She was kind of like this little flame at the end of it," Reedus told the site. "[Daryl] got closer and closer to that flame and thought maybe he could see something and maybe there would be light and it's getting warmer and warmer... and then someone blew it out."

That latter statement »

Get Creeped Out By the Latest Demon-Filled 'Constantine' Trailer (Video)

15 hours ago

The new trailer for "Constantine" is chock full of demons, dark hallways, blood, and bugs -- and that's just scratching the surface of the horrors awaiting audiences of the NBC series

Matt Ryan stars as the titular character, a demon hunter with a major chip on his shoulder. As he says in the clip, "I'm a nasty piece of work," and it's not hard to see why.

Constantine spends most of the trailer battling demons both real and internal, while also trying to protect others from their encroachment. There's a lot going on visually in the clip -- including bleeding eyes and mouths, shattering windows, and black souls swirling through the sky -- so it's a bit difficult to make out just who is good, bad, or somewhere in between. We have a feeling our protagonist is also meant to have a bit of a murky character makeup, too.

Things Look Very Grim in the 'Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies' Trailer (Video)

16 hours ago

The first trailer for "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" proves that while Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) and his friends may have reclaimed the dwarves' homeland from the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch), their epic journey is still not over yet. If anything, the most difficult leg still remains before them.

The clip shows just what sorts of danger Bilbo and his company are up against, as orcs and other deadly creatures converge to destroy them in the titular battle. There's also a blink-and-you'll-miss-it glimpse of the evil eye of Sauron, who has sent the orcs to do his bidding.

As usual, director Peter Jackson and his special effects team seem to once again have outdone themselves with stunning visuals, as the trailer offers looks at lush landscapes, scores of soldiers, and curious creatures galore.

Lea Michele Is Going From 'Glee' to 'Sons of Anarchy'

16 hours ago

The already star-studded final season of "Sons of Anarchy" has added another familiar face in a guest-starring role: Lea Michele is set to appear on an upcoming episode of the motorcycle drama.

The "Glee" star announced her casting on Twitter on Monday, writing that she would be featured on her "favorite show," and thanking "Sons" creator Kurt Sutter for the opportunity.

Villains Rise In the Dark New Trailer For 'Gotham' (Video)

16 hours ago

While "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is set to unite the Dark Knight with the Man of Tomorrow in theaters around the world in 2016, Batman is also coming to television, much sooner, courtesy of Fox's "Gotham," airing this fall. It's a gritty look at the origins of Gotham's most notorious residents, both good and bad, with a young Commissioner Gordon (played by "Oc" star Ben McKenzie) taking center stage. If you aren't jazzed yet, this new trailer (courtesy of EW) should do the trick.

This trailer plays up the iconic nature of Gotham and its inhabitants without going crazy on the "Hey! It's a little kid version of the Riddler!" stuff that some of the previous trailer and teasers have relied heavily on. Instead, this takes a more atmospheric approach, establishing the mood and tone of the piece (gritty cop drama with some oversized villains) over the whole comic book connection thing. »

The 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Comic-Con Trailer Will Blow Your Mind (Video)

17 hours ago

One of the highlights of this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con was the section of the Warner Bros panel dedicated to next summer's "Mad Max: Fury Road." The presentation lasted around 10 minutes and left everyone in Hall H to pick their jaws up off the floor. Thankfully, if you didn't make it to San Diego this weekend, we've got a sneak peek for you with a shorter trailer comprised of some of the same footage screened this weekend. It should do the trick.

The footage opens the same way the Comic Con reel did: with a two-headed lizard scurrying across the sun-bleached tundra. (Clearly, things in the future are positively radioactive.) The lizard darts towards Tom Hardy as Mad Max, taking over the iconic role from Mel Gibson, who essayed the character in three movies ("Mad Max," "The Road Warrior" and "Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome"). Max steps on the lizard, which »

'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' Is Even More Sinful in the Red Band Comic-Con Trailer (Video)

17 hours ago

At the "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" panel over the weekend, co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller noted that it was almost ten years to the day since the last time they were presenting "Sin City" footage at Comic-Con. (Yes, it's been that long since the first movie.) Thankfully, the wait for rainy, neo-noir crime shenanigans is almost up, as the highly anticipated sequel opens at the end of August, and just in case you were hankering for a real deal look at all the sex and violence the sequel has to offer, here's a red band clip from the movie to really get your motor running.

What's great about this clip is that it compares some of the actors and set pieces to their comic book counterparts (where appropriate -- this sequel has some new sections crafted specifically for this movie) and shows you just how faithful »

20 hours ago

Andi Dorfman is about to make one of the biggest decisions of her life. Yes -- July 28 is the finale of "The Bachelorette" Season 10 and the Atlanta attorney will finally choose between her final two suitors, Josh Murray and Nick Viall.

As we prepare for this momentous moment, we may as well take a trip down memory lane and look at the track record of former Bachelorettes and their chosen mates. As it turns out, not all the relationships were doomed, but the odds aren't exactly in these reality TV relationships' favor.

Here's hoping for a lifetime of love and happiness for Andi and her (maybe) husband-to-be. And as we celebrate her new chapter, let's check in with past "Bachelorette" couples and see how they're doing. »

​Box Office: How Scarlett Johansson Beat Dwayne Johnson at the Action Movie Game

21 hours ago

In a normal summer, a debut like the estimated $29.0 million opening for Dwayne Johnson's "Hercules" would be reason for its creators and distributor to rejoice. After all, the movie did better than pundits had predicted (in the low 20s), and it enjoyed a healthy per-screen average ($8,067 per venue). As an action star with a track record, Johnson would be said to have delivered on his promise, and there would be backslapping and cigars all around for a $100-million PG-13 movie that would surely earn back its investment from both domestic and overseas audiences (who bought an estimated $28.0 million worth of tickets) .

And yet, that opening was good enough only for second place. Coming out more than 50 percent ahead to debut in the No. 1 slot was "Lucy," a French-made R-rated action movie starring petite Scarlett Johansson, shot for a modest (by action standards) $40 million. Playing on 422 fewer screens than "Hercules, »

'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Trailer Teases The Coming War

23 hours ago

The new "Hunger Games Mockingjay - Part 1" trailer is out and it looks like it's all fun and games until someone starts a rebellion for our friends in Panem.

That someone would be Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen as she becomes the face of the rebellion against the forces of President Snow, once again played by Canada's Donald Sutherland.

The trailer's more of a teaser, released on YouTube after airing at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend but despite running for 63 seconds, it's the most substantial look at Lawrence's transformation from death-match contestant to warrior.

Also in the trailer are some of the earliest shots of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman and Julianne Moore as President Coin. We also get a first look at "Game of Thrones" star Natalie Dormer as Capitol film director, Cressida.

Give the trailer a watch and let us know what you think about "Mockingjay" in the comments below. »
