The Best Movie Trailers of the Week

just now

Welcome back to Best Movie Trailers of the Week, a column where we handpick the best new movie trailers that have arrived online over the past week. Fantastic Four   Sure, the Fantastic Four trailer could be a little stronger, but the piece is certainly a nice surprise after such a long wait. There is some fun to be had with seeing the characters back in action for those that are familiar with the source material, but the piece could be a little short on story details for Fantastic Four newcomers. However, Fox’s choice to highlight tone and mood over action and plot is still a refreshing and especially effective one.   The Ever After   The pace of this trailer for Mark Webber and Teresa Palmer’s semi-self-financed The Ever After...

Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Guess These Found-Footage Movies Based on Their Cropped Posters?

14 hours ago

Break on through the fourth wall, because it's time for another Poster-Crop Quiz! This week, Project Almanac gave us the impetus to take on our own project. We've gathered together posters from 10 found-footage movies, and then stared horrified through the lens of a handheld camera as an unseen entity tore them to shreds. See if you can identify the movies from the decimated remains of their posters, leaving your guesses in the comment section below. The first person to correctly name all 10 will receive a shout-out in next week's quiz. It won't cure your nausea from all the shaky cinematography, but it's a nice bonus.    Caption: To kick things off, gaze if you dare at the poster for the Spanish found-footage horror flick [Rec].

Comics on Film: What 'The Fly' and 'The Fantastic Four' Have in Common

15 hours ago

At long last and on bated breath, this week 20th Century Fox finally gave audiences their first look at Fantastic Four, the franchise reboot directed by Chronicle's Josh Trank. Many people, including comic book fans, seem to agree that while the film doesn't look like it'll be the most faithful comic book adaptation out there, it still looks extremely interesting. One thing in particular stood out in an interview Trank conducted with Collider. When asked what would make his superhero film different in a market that seems to be crowded with them, Trank answered very honestly, and in a way that many likely didn't expect. He said, "...I always viewed Fantastic Four and the kind of weirdness that happens to these characters and how...

Is 2015 the Year of the Funny Documentary?

16 hours ago

Most of the documentaries we discuss each year focus on serious, important issues -- topics that are newsworthy and with purpose. The kind of stuff that may help change the world one day. But that doesn't mean docs can't offer up a good laugh, too. With an influx of amusing documentaries on the Sundance Film Festival docket this year, we couldn't help but wonder whether 2015 would become the year of the funny doc. Here are a few we liked the most. Misery Loves Comedy Do you have to be miserable to be funny? This is the question Kevin Pollak eventually asks as he has comedians open up about their day (and night) job. Comedians like Tom Hanks, Larry David, Jimmy Fallon, Judd Apatow, Marc Maron,and Amy Schumer -- plus actors such as Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sam...

M. Night Shyamalan Thinks It's Time to Make 'Unbreakable 2'

18 hours ago

It's been almost 15 years since the release of Unbreakable, and you'd think the window of opportunity for a sequel has long since passed. But now more than ever, writer-director M. Night Shyamalan seems to believe it's finally the perfect time to revisit superpowered security guard David Dunn (played by Bruce Willis) and his arch nemesis Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson).  Collider caught up with the filmmaker while he promoted his upcoming show Wayward Pines and took a moment to discuss the possibility of the follow-up. "Of course, the whole world makes comic book movies now," Shyamalan notes. "At the time, it was completely novel. I remember when I made it, Disney was literally like, 'Comic books?!  There’s no...

Jurassic World: A new photo from Jurassic World gives a peek -- through smoke -- at a new dinosaur that will be featured in the movie, rumbling toward theaters on June 12. The beast is identified as Indominus Rex, described as "the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World." Concept art for its paddock is presented below.

What Is Your Most Anticipated Movie from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival?

29 January 2015 11:00 PM, PST

We've still got a few more days left until the end of this year's Sundance Film Festival, and so we don't know what the jury or audience favorites of the event are. Maybe we need to wait for them to be announced to determine what our most anticipated selection should be, because unlike the 2014 fest, which gave us an immediate and unbeatable crowd pleaser in Whiplash (now a Best Picture Oscar nominee), this time there doesn't seem to be an unmistakable certainty for best of fest yet. That isn't to say anything of the quality of the program. In fact, it's probably more so a reflection on how great the movies have been overall. There is no difficulty finding options for the winner of Sundance '15. There may instead be difficulty paring down from so many...

The Last Sci-fi Blog: 'Interstellar,' 'Fantastic Four' and the Science Fiction-ing of Superhero Movies

29 January 2015 9:30 PM, PST

When the first trailer for Josh Trank's Fantastic Four reboot arrived earlier this week, everyone noted that the footage was cut awfully similar to the marketing for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar. Since this is the Internet, it took someone less than 24 hours to splice together Matthew McConaughey's voice with Reg E. Cathey's narration and the results were uncanny. The trailer played exactly the same, beat for beat. This can't be an accident. The marketing folks at 20th Century Fox didn't utilize beautiful shots of cornfields, traditional images of Americana and astronauts suiting up for a dangerous mission by accident. And then there's Cathey's narration, which sounds like something out of The Right Stuff, not a superhero movie. The lack of...

This Film Just Broke Zach Braff's Box Office Record for a Crowdfunded Movie

29 January 2015 7:00 PM, PST

What's better, raising the most money on a crowdfunding site or earning the most money at the box office? The latter has always been more newsworthy, if we consider the funding part the same as any movie budget raised ahead of production. But being a box office success is a particular achievement for a crowdfunded project, because it shows that the movie doesn't just sound like a good idea, but it followed through and in fact is a good movie that people are talking about and that more and more people want to see on the big screen. Dear White People, a race-based satire about black students at an ivy league university, only raised $41,405 when it campaigned through Indiegogo back in 2012. That was pretty great considering the movie's goal was only $25,000...

Watch: The Sundance Film Festival Movies You Should Put on Your Radar

29 January 2015 5:47 PM, PST

Sometimes it's hard to look at a list of unfamiliar film festival movies and pick out the ones to put on your must-watch list for when they arrive in theaters at a later date. While attending this year's Sundance Film Festival, I sat down with AMC Independent's Amirose Eisenbach and Alicia Malone to discuss a whole bunch of the movies we watched over the course of a few days up in the mountains of Park City, Utah. We had a great conversation and covered a lot of movies, so give it a watch below.   Some of the films mentioned include.... Dope Sleeping with Other People Me and Earl and the Dying Girl Wild Tales The End of the Tour The D Train Strangerland Knock Knock Going Clear Z for Zachariah The Bronze What Happened, Miss Simone...

Watch: Your Favorite Dirty Teddy Bear Returns in First Official 'Ted 2' Trailer

29 January 2015 3:56 PM, PST

The most hilariously dirty, foul-mouthed and perverted movie character in recent years returns to theaters this summer for another big-screen comedic adventure... and did we mention he's a teddy bear? Yes, that lovable and huggable loudmouth is back alongside his best buddy John (Mark Wahlberg) in Ted 2, due out June 28, and the first official trailer for the film has just dropped. Check it out. This time around it looks like Ted is getting married and wants to have a baby, except he's running into trouble achieving life's goals because he's not a real human... he's a teddy bear. Thus kicks off what looks to be another R-rated riot full of all kinds of absurd debauchery, only this time stars like Morgan Freeman, Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson are joining...

Disney Princesses Meet Horror Icons in These Awesome Mash-ups

29 January 2015 3:00 PM, PST

Disney villains may be the stuff of nightmares for really small children, but imagine if the heroes and heroines of animated classics went up against really terrifying characters. That's precisely what artist José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros has done with his latest set of parodies, which pit Disney princesses and other favorites from the Mouse House brand against horror film icons and at least two baddies from Batman movies. Most of these are really perfect, such as the above image of Freddy Krueger and Princess Aurora, hinting that the leading lady of Sleeping Beauty might not get to ever wake up, even with a kiss from her prince. Then there's the obvious combo of Little Mermaid's Ariel and the Creature from the Black Lagoon. We're not sure...
