See a clip from the new, serious 'Leprechaun' reboot 'Origins'

1 hour ago

Comic-Con may be one of the biggest movie-related shindigs on the face of the planet, but it still makes space for some of life’s smaller—not to mention Irish-er—things. That’s in reference, of course, to Leprechaun: Origins, the horror reboot starring WWE wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the titular Emerald Isle monster.

To mark today’s Leprechaun-featuring WWE Studios and Lionsgate panel at Comic-Con, EW is exclusively debuting a sequence from the film which boasts the first look at the new Leprechaun himself. At last year’s New York Comic-Con, Leprechaun: Origins director Zach Lipovsky described his movie as “terrifying. »

Nicole Kidman tries to remember in 'Before I Go to Sleep' trailer

8 hours ago

In the new teaser for Before I Go to Sleep, Nicole Kidman plays a traumatized woman who can’t remember the violent attack she suffered 10 years ago. Her husband (Colin Firth) and doctor (Mark Strong) say they only want to help her recover, but every morning, when she wakes up, her memory of everything is gone. So she starts to document her days, Memento style, so that each day slowly brings her closer to the truth.

The debut 2011 novel from S.J. Watson was a best-seller, and Ridley Scott’s production company quickly nabbed its rights. Rowan Joffe, who wrote 28 Weeks Later, »

Miles Teller can't find the right beat in 'Whiplash' trailer

8 hours ago

“There are no two words in the English language more harmful than ‘Good job.’”

That’s the fault line on which writer/director Damien Chazelle has built Whiplash. His Sundance sensation stars Miles Teller as a jazz-drum prodigy who earns the attention of his prestigious school’s notorious music maestro (J.K. Simmons). Is genius simply born, or does it need to be forged? How far is a teacher supposed—or allowed—to go to bring out the best in a student, and what are the risks and consequences for such methods?

In the new trailer for the film, Teller’s »

Let's all ogle Batman's new cowl, which is now on display at Comic-Con

11 hours ago

Should you decide to walk the show floor of San Diego’s Comic-Con International, you might come across a bat-themed surprise: the actual cowl that will be worn by Ben Affleck in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is on display at the convention today.

It may seem like just a cape, but there’s much to be gleaned from its appearance. As DC co-publisher Jim Lee stated in an interview with USA Today, the cape has “a very low drag coefficient,” and suggests “a boxer’s physique.” (A refresher, in case you’re a little rusty on your »

Box office preview: 'Lucy' aims to dominate 'Hercules'

13 hours ago

Hercules might be a legendary warrior, but Lucy’s brain capacity will likely prove too formidable a foe for the Greek demigod at the box office. The Scarlett Johansson-led action film looks poised to ravage Dwayne Johnson’s sword-and-sandals epic as both debut on 3,000+ screens this weekend.

Rob Reiner’s And So It Goes, starring Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas also opens in 1,800 theaters, which could possibly break the top five with $8 million, closing out a quiet and struggling July at the box office before Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy arrives next weekend.

Here’s how things might play out. »

Fans who attended Preview Night  at San Diego Comic-Con and stopped by Marvel’s booth last night got a first look at two new concept art posters for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which arrives in theaters on May 1, 2015.

The first poster, drawn by Ryan Meinerding, features Iron Man blasting away one of Ultron’s robots. Things don’t look too good for Ultron’s robots in the second poster, which shows Scarlet Witch—played by Marvel film franchise newcomer Elizabeth Olsen—using her powers to fend off her attackers.

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' trailer has arrived

14 hours ago

In the first trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson is a mousy girl with a notepad who makes an impression on Jamie Dornan’s laser-gazed billionaire Christian Grey. If I recall correctly, his corporation puts her bookstore out of business and they become unlikely online pen-pals after meeting in a chat room. And then they have lots of sex. The end.

Enjoy.

The film opens on Feb. 13. »

Can Luc Besson score another French-import blockbuster with 'Lucy'? (Updated)

15 hours ago

Over the course of his dozen-plus films as a writer-director, Parisian auteur Luc Besson has become known for his stylish inversions of schlock genre fare and a certain, shall we call it, Vive la femme attitude toward women.

Time and again, his movies place emotionally fragile female characters in physically perilous situations: a conflicted hit-woman struggling with the perils of her job in 1990’s La Femme Nikita, 12-year old Natalie Portman on the run as an assassin-in-training in The Professional, and Milla Jovovich’s universe-saving alien Leeloo in The Fifth Element (1997) among them. Besson’s latest multiplex offering appears set to follow that template. »

'Ninja Turtles' trailer features theme song by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa

23 July 2014 12:32 PM, PDT

If nothing else, let this mark the first time you’ve heard an anthropomorphic turtle shout “woo” between the words “Wu “and “Tang.”

A new trailer for Paramount’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finds the four adolescent amphibians fighting crime to the tune of “Shell Shocked” by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, which was released just yesterday.

Once you recover from being, well, shell-shocked by the very existence of both this song and the video it’s paired with, take a moment to reflect on the fact that combining rap and Tmnt has been done before. »

Sean Astin bugs out in 'Cabin Fever: Patient Zero' clip

23 July 2014 11:05 AM, PDT

How much does Sean Astin know about disgusting infectious diseases? A lot more now than he did a few years ago, probably.

The Lord of the Rings actor can currently be seen in FX’s vampire-virus drama The Strain and is also one of the stars of Cabin Fever: Patient Zero, the third movie in the flesh-eating virus horror franchise which Eli Roth kicked off back in 2002 with his directorial debut Cabin Fever. Patient Zero itself is directed by Kaare Andrews and concerns a Caribbean vacation which goes (as is the tendency in films whose title features the words “Cabin” and “Fever”) badly awry. »

A college radio show causes chaos in 'Dear White People' trailer

23 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT

Dear white people,” Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) begins her college radio broadcast. “The minimum requirement of black friends needed to not seem racist has just been raised to two. Sorry, but your weed man, Tyrone, does not count.”

After taking the Special Jury Award for Breakthrough Talent at Sundance, first-time feature writer and director Justin Simien’s college race relations comedy is preparing to hit theaters with just as much verve as Samantha’s radio show.

'Sinister Six' gets 2016 release date as 'Amazing Spider-Man 3' moves back

23 July 2014 10:04 AM, PDT

Slow down, Spider-Man. Take a load off. You’ve been going nonstop since 2002.

After bringing home more than $700 million around the globe in his last superhero adventure, Andrew Garfield and the Amazing Spider-Man franchise aren’t being rushed back into the fray. A third film was originally slated for June 10, 2016, but Sony announced today that Spidey wouldn’t swing back our way—at least in his own film—until 2018.

The twist is that we still might get a taste of Spidey in two years, because Sinister Six is now officially on the calendar for Nov. 11, 2016. That franchise expansion, to be »

See Chris Evans in his directorial debut

23 July 2014 9:34 AM, PDT

Earlier this year, while promoting the second Captain America film, Chris Evans hinted that people shouldn’t expect to see him in superhero movies much longer. In fact, his real ambition was to direct, and he wasn’t speaking hypothetically. Once titled 1:30 Train and now titled Before We Go, his directorial debut was recently announced as one of the films that will premiere at this September’s Toronto Film Festival. According to the festival’s official release, “the story follows two strangers after their serendipitous meeting in Grand Central . Over the course of one night, they form an unlikely »

Video: Jessica Chastain, Colin Farrell play with fire in 'Miss Julie'

23 July 2014 8:54 AM, PDT

The following clip is Nsfw, assuming you’re a repressed 19th-century manservant.

If you’re not: Here’s a first look at Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, a period piece based on the 1888 Strindberg play of the same name. Jessica Chastain plays the titular character, the feisty daughter of a count; Colin Farrell plays Jean, the valet who’s loved Julie since she was a girl. (“Loved,” here, means he’s had “nasty thoughts” about her since childhood.) Naturally, things get complicated when the two become entangled—more along the lines of Quills than Downton Abbey, if this slow-burning international trailer is any indication. »
