Heroes unite in the epic new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League

17 hours ago

Author: Josh Wilding

Well, this is epic! Warner Bros. has finally released the new trailer for Justice League (after a series of teases and new posters) and it points to this movie finally doing the DC Films Universe…well, justice! The visuals here are incredible, but so too are the moments of levity – something many said was needed after Batman v Superman – and big reveals.

We’ll get to the latter in a feature a little later today, but in the meantime, it’s worth noting that Superman is nowhere to be seen here. The focus is instead put on Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and The Flash, and it appears as if the plan is to keep the Man of Steel’s fate a mystery either until a much later trailer or for Justice League itself.

However, if there’s one hero who steals the show here, it’s »

Spectacular new Spider-Man: Homecoming posters reminds you it’s set in the McU

24 March 2017 12:45 PM, PDT

Author: Josh Wilding

It’s been a while since we’ve seen anything official from Spider-Man: Homecoming, but Marvel Studios has now revealed a brand new poster for the upcoming reboot. As you can see, it features Tom Holland’s wall-crawler taking a break from work as the gorgeous New York skyline can be seen in the background. However, that contains a major Easter Egg.

Reminding us that Spider-Man: Homecoming is set firmly in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers Tower dominates this image. Those of you wondering what the yellow jacket means will want to bear in mind that this version of Peter Parker is a high school student as it bears the logo of the Midtown Science High School that the hero reports to each day.

You have to believe that the release of these posters is leading to a new trailer, something which will more than likely be »

Exclusive: See the trailer for the new 4K Restoration of David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive

24 March 2017 6:33 AM, PDT

Author: Jon Lyus

While the two worlds chant out the names of David Lynch and Twin Peaks in heady expectation of the cult series’ revival we’re also diving deep into the murky waters of pure Lynchian nightmare fuel. Last year Lynch’s 2001 masterpiece Mulholland Drive was voted the greatest film of the 21st Century, and with good reason. In anticipation of the beautiful new 4K restoration of the film hitting UK cinemas on the 14th of April we’re proud to debut the new trailer today.

Naomi Watts in David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive

Mulholland Drive is a timeless classic. Conceived as a TV series by David Lynch the film is the perfect millennial enigma. Elements of fragmented identity, worlds shrinking and expanding under a spotlight, the pull and clasp of fame – these are all in the mix here. As we have become ever so much more used to »

New Justice League Trailer Teases, Photos and Posters – Full trailer tomorrow

24 March 2017 5:41 AM, PDT

Author: Jon Lyus

The campaign to pick up our enthusiasm for the future of the DC cinematic universe has gathered of late. It’s true that last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad failed to rouse a wider audience, however we’re hopeful that 2017 will be a better year for Zack Snyder and the various Justice League team.

In that spirit we present a number of teases for the full length trailer for DC’s Avengers-esque team up movie, Justice League, which is coming tomorrow. So far we’ve seen three of the brief snippets featuring The Flash (Ezra Miller), Batman (Ben Affleck) and Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and you can see them below. Two others at least are expected, namely Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg.

The Edge of Stardom: Hailee Steinfeld and the New Hollywood Kids on the Block

24 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT

Author: Matt Rodgers

It feels strange to herald Hailee Steinfeld as a fresh cinematic supernova, considering her Oscar nominated turn as True Grit’s Mattie Ross was as far back as 2010. Since then she has carved out a wonderful niche as a supporting actress, often stealing the films from under the nose of the likes of Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect 2), whilst also sustaining what the kids tell me is a pretty good pop career.

Last year she stepped up to leading lady status with The Edge of Seventeen. It’s the kind of film that should have found a bigger audience, threatening a re-think of most people’s top ten of the year lists. One of those coming-of-age parables that truly reflects what it was/is like to be young, and as the sardonic Nadine, Steinfeld runs the full gamut of emotions; comedic to sympathetic, and always utterly watchable. »

All This Panic Review

24 March 2017 3:56 AM, PDT

Author: Adam Lowes

The growing pains that come with the leap from adolescence to adult are never the easiest to circumnavigate. This is something that hasn’t been lost on director Jenny Gage who, together with her cinematographer husband Tom Betterton, has crafted a thoughtful and candid female coming of age documentary. If, at first, the film appears dangerously close to self-consciously mimicking that woozy indie cinema aesthetic – all soft focus, floaty camerawork and sunlight spilling into the frame – this artifice thankfully ebbs away in time as the themes are allowed to percolate and the film finds its own probing personality.

Best friends Ginger and Lena (credited as ‘Lena M.’ presumably to help keep her family’s post-breakup issues as private as possible) are the ostensive ‘leads’ here, but the story splinters out to five other Brooklyn-based teenage girls, some vaguely connected to the duo, others more intimately so (Ginger »

CHiPS Review

24 March 2017 3:48 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Even some of the more engaging action comedy capers have to make a compromise, as the success rate in establishing a strong narrative while remaining consistently funny is a a hurdle many a filmmaker has stumbled on. Some thrive in their farcicality and the story becomes something of a side-note, while in others, it’s the comedy that takes precedence, with the narrative working as a mere vehicle for the humour. Dax Shepard’s CHiPS is a rare case, though – for it succeeds in neither.

Shepard plays Jon Baker, a newly enforced member of the Chp (California Highway Patrol) wanting to make his mark, and impress his wife (Kristen Bell) in a bid to save their dying marriage. Threatened with being fired if he doesn’t file within the top bracket of performers, he’s unenthused when meeting his partner, undercover FBI agent Frank Poncherello (Michael Pena »

Star Wars: Woody Harrelson talks the Han Solo movie & 3 planets we’re returning to in Episodes VIII & IX

23 March 2017 10:03 AM, PDT

Author: Jon Lyus

The ironclad security surrounding the new Star Wars films is well known. It is expected (and not unreasonably so) that larger plot elements be revealed in the cinema, rather than online months before. The smaller hints however can give fans a flavour of what to expect. We have a couple of these for you today with a snippet of info about the forthcoming Han Solo Star Wars Story, as well as locations for future saga films.

In the interview with NBC‘s Jimmy Fallon, primarily to talk about his new film Wilson, Woody Harrelson told us the name of his character in the film, and confirmed where he fits into the main story.

“I play a guy named Beckett, who is kind of a criminal and I am a mentor to Han.”

It’s not much but he confirmed the ‘mentor to Han’ element to his character, »

Life Review

23 March 2017 8:18 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

 

Daniel Espinosa’s latest endeavour, the sci-fi blockbuster Life, is heavily inspired by the likes of Alien and Gravity, and while not imitative, it does make for a film that feels somewhat hackneyed in its execution, lacking in originality. It’s a shame this be the case, for the screenplay comes from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and yet comes devoid of that same charm and comedic tendencies that illuminated their preceding venture, as a film somehow lacking in adventure.

The premise is gloriously simple; a small collective of astronauts, featuring the likes of David (Jake Gyllenhaal), Roy (Ryan Reynolds) an Miranda (Rebecca Ferguson) have managed to discover a very small sample from Mars, which they believe could finally provide evidence of extraterrestrial life away from Earth. The most specialised in this department is Hugh Derry (Ariyon Bakare) who vies tirelessly to awake this minuscule, »

Exclusive: Ariyon Bakare discusses his biggest movie role to date, in sci-fi thriller Life

23 March 2017 8:06 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

Despite having appeared in both Rogue One and Jupiter Ascending, Life marks the first major cinematic role for British actor Ariyon Bakare, and we had the pleasure of sitting down with the talented actor to promote the Daniel Espinosa sci-fi.

We discussed the plausibility of the narrative at hand, and whether that was a selling point, while also pointing towards the sheer horror that derives from the unknown – which the antagonist in this picture(an organism named Calvin) represents.

Bakare also discussed the close-knit nature of the cast and crew, and why he seems to have an inclination for this particular genre – which leads into a brief discussion about shooting the scenes depicting zero gravity, and whether or not he’d ever been tempted to go to space himself one day.

Finally, in light of recent comments made by Samuel L. Jackson concerning black British actors taking on roles in the States, »

Perhaps the best movie poster so far this year – here’s the new, hellish Alien Covenant Poster

23 March 2017 6:24 AM, PDT

Author: Jon Lyus

Some movie posters just pass you by. Ten-minute Photoshop jobs using publicity stills are a dime-a-dozen right now, and evoke nothing but an emotional shrug of the shoulders. This one, however, pins you to the wall and screams Fear Me! in your face. The posters for Alien Covenant have, thus far, been relatively happy to keep their distance. Using familiar imagery in the shadows with a few terse words (Run. Hide. And So On), they did not prepare us for this bastard child of Hieronymus Bosch and H. R. Giger.

Earlier this month we were out at SXSW where the audience were given a sneak peek of the new Alien film by the director himself. Wanting, in his words, ‘to scare the shit out of you’, what we were allowed to see was tense and exciting. Here’s our take on the footage we saw. The continual »

Netflix delivers a chilling trailer for manga adaptation Death Note

23 March 2017 5:26 AM, PDT

Author: Zehra Phelan

Are you worthy of your life? That decision is in the hands of the bearer of the Death Note so be sure to be kind to all those you encounter.  Thanks to Netflix, all will be revealed in their upcoming original film, Death Note in August, but first, we have a teaser to wet your appetite.

What is the Death Note you may ask!  Death Note is Netflix own live-action adaptation of a hugely popular manga series brought to life for Western audiences. With Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost in the Shell released into cinemas next week, Netflix has followed suit in adapting the series which first debuted in Japan in 2003, clearly not wanting to be left out of the trend which is taking the big screen by storm.

This isn’t the first time this story has been adapted, in Japan it has had four live-action films, »

Table 19 Trailer and Images: Anna Kendrick plays a loser in love

23 March 2017 4:28 AM, PDT

Author: Zehra Phelan

Almost flying under the radar with an April 7th release is Anna Kendrick’s romantic comedy, Table 19 and with it comes the new trailer, a selection of stills and posters to give you an insight of what a real loser in love looks like.

Related: Anna Kendrick news and interviews

As romantic comedies go, Table 19 doesn’t exactly stand out, but there will be an audience out there who will love it. The trailer focuses on Kendrick attending a friend’s wedding who just happens to be marrying the brother of her ex-boyfriend who unceremoniously dumped her via a text message. Stuck at the table at the back, full of fellow losers who no one cares about, friendships flourish as the bitter and twisted guests reveal themselves. Predictably could love also flourish for our protagonist? We can safely bet it does.

Power Rangers Review

23 March 2017 4:10 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

Remember those adverts that used to play to us when we were kids? The fast-paced, Saturday morning toy commercials that just shout at you for 30 seconds? Well, Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers is reminiscent of such merchandising, yet if you can get beneath the loud noises and emphatically overstated nature of this film, there’s much enjoyment to be had, for all the family. Well, at least after the opening joke being about masturbating a cow with two hands it is, anyway.

Power Rangers Video Review

Jason (Dacre Montgomery) is one of the most promising athletes at school, but finds his future compromised when indulging in illegal activity, winding up in weekend detention alongside other reprobates. It’s here he meets the autistic Billy (Rj Cyler) and Kimberly (Naomi Scott) forming a friendship with the pair, as they set off to a nearby scrapheap to hang out. »

Exclusive: Kleber Mendonça Filho gets political discussing controversial feature Aquarius

22 March 2017 10:06 AM, PDT

Author: Linda Marric

At the Cannes premiere of his latest film Aquarius, director Kleber Mendonça Filho and his cast, including legendary Brazilian actress Sonia Braga, made a courageous and very public stand against the current Brazilian government. This resulted in a barely disguised attempt by the Brazilian authorities to sabotage the film and its director. Aquarius was initially given a very damaging 18 rating, which was later reversed, and more importantly failed to be put forward for Best Foreign Picture at this year Academy Awards. With all the drama surrounding it, the film became a story of its own and gained huge critical acclaim for the director and his cast.

Set in Filho’s own hometown of Recife, Aquarius stars Sonia Braga as sixty five year old Clara who lives in an old apartment building which is at risk of being demolished and made into a modern apartment complex. Clara is »

“I would never go to space” – Director Daniel Espinosa on his latest project Life

22 March 2017 9:52 AM, PDT

Author: Stefan Pape

Though the whole of his latest endeavour Life may be set in outer space, it’s not a place that Swedish filmmaker Daniel Espinosa has any ambitions of going to himself one day, as we sit down with the director ahead of the movie’s UK release.

“I would never go to space, it’s an atrocious place,” he said. “Those astronauts are slowly dying, they go up there and their bodies start to decay. Space and the jungle are two things you should just avoid. The mosquitos are like the size of fists, why would you ever want to be there? This notion of space being glorious… I admire astronauts, they are truly heroes, but for me I would rather go down the street and have a coffee and a cigarette”.

We also discussed with Espinosa how vital the realism is the narrative at hand, and »
