Swear words and sarcasm in a deleted scene from Inside Out

14 hours ago

Disney's Inside Out took a very ambitious stab at getting inside the mind of a young girl named Riley, and it introduced us to the essential emotions and aspects of a person's brain.

In this deleted scene that will be featured on the Blu Ray and DVD which is out November 3rd, Riley's mind is going through more construction. As she is growing up, a swear word dictionary, sarcasm generator and boy research center are being added to her mind. All of this stuff would be super cool to include if Disney decides to make a sequel--as we're sure that once Riley's a teenager, all of these components will be essential.

[Interview: getting emotional with Inside Out's voice of Sadness, Phyllis Smith]


All of this is obviously upsetting to Joy (Amy Poehler) who works super hard to ensure that Riley's mind is operating well, and that she can simply be happy. The film already made great use of many emotional components, »

Gladiator George Clooney and sailor Channing Tatum star in first trailer for Hail, Caesar!

22 hours ago

The Coen Brothers are two filmmakers whose films are eagerly anticipated by cinema-goers with each and every new and wonderful film they churn out. Lucky for us, they work rather frequently, and next February will see the release of Hail, Caesar!—about a leading man (George Clooney) who gets stolen by “The Future” and the Hollywood fixer (Josh Brolin) who fights to get him back.

Also starring Channing TatumScarlett JohanssonJonah HillRalph FiennesTilda Swinton, and Frances McDormand, the Coens have put together yet another dream cast for this 1950s Hollywood satire.

The trailer promises the Coens’ signature brand of humour, ensuring lots of laughs—it looks to be their first true comedy since Burn After Reading, though you could argue that even the saddest of Coen Brothers films has its fair share of dark humour. If you want to see Channing Tatum as a dancing sailor and »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies balances machetes with manners in first teaser

22 hours ago

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a Jane Austen heroine should always recreate the opening shot of Reservoir Dogs with her sisters as Sleigh Bells’ “A/B” drowns out the moans of the undead.

Welcome to the Regency era – or at least Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ take on it.

Yes, the women are still refined, and the men proper – but whist, piano, and needlepoint aren’t the only skills required if you’re going to succeed in this English countryside. Under the tutelage of their father, Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters have become a corset-wearing, gun-toting, knife-wielding squadron of zombie hunters – who are also, of course, moderately acceptable marriage material.

“Zombies are exactly what Pride and Prejudice needed,” said Matt Smith at San Diego Comic-Con this passed July, and watching this trailer, we can’t help but agree with him.

Back to Battle: Talking to Paul Gross about Hyena Road

9 October 2015 8:00 AM, PDT

Looking at Paul Gross’s two most recent films as writer-director, 2008’s World War I drama Passchendaele and this month’s Afghanistan pic Hyena Road, you might think he has a master plan; some reason he’s made two military movies in a row. That’s not the case.

“After doing Passchendaele I had no interest in ever doing another war film because they’re just so phenomenally difficult to execute,” he says over the phone from his Toronto home.

Gross, whose big break as an actor came playing Constable Benton Fraser on TV’s "Due South" in the 1990s, was asked to go to Afghanistan to visit the Canadian troops in 2010. Once there, he realized there was a story he wanted to tell.

“It was just mesmerizing to me, I’ve been in a lot of weird places, but never in an active war zone. It was so complicated and so strange, »

Keanu Reeves faces a home invasion in 2 new Knock, Knock clips

8 October 2015 3:21 PM, PDT

Eli Roth is notorious for his very gory, overly sexualized, and campy horror films. This makes the new clips from his latest film Knock, Knock all the more intriguing, as these scenes look pretty innocent, and yet, they worry us for what's to come. 

The film stars Keanu Reeves as a husband and father who is left home alone for the weekend. He wouldn't be your usual target for a home invasion, but that's what makes this project so interesting--not only is Reeves the one who is being targeted, the invaders are two young, seemingly harmless girls played by Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas

In the clips, we see that the girls have raided Evan's (Keanu Reeves) fridge, and are quite barbaric when it comes to having breakfast. They also use their allure to tempt to Keanu, who is pigeon-holed into a position where he can't quite fight the girls or force them out. »

The "Bumps Gonna Goose Ya!" in new Goosebumps rap by Jack Black

8 October 2015 12:52 PM, PDT

The release of the new Goosebumps film is going to be a heavy dose of nostalgia. The popular book series, that later became a television show, caused nightmares for many of us as young kids, and yet, we couldn't look away. The new film adaptation sees Jack Black as real life author R.L. Stine, battling the very creatures he wrote about, as they come to life and real havoc in the town of Greendale, Maryland. It seems as though we aren't just getting treated to the film, but a companion rap and music video, which really sends those nostalgic tingles home.

It's been a while since a film has had it's own original song and rap to accompany it, at least in the all-out, crazy fun style that "Bumps Gonna Goose Ya!" does. Leave it to Jack Black, who isn't just an actor, but the eccentric lead singer of the »

7 October 2015 2:27 PM, PDT

Move over Anna and Elsa, the newest Disney Princess has arrived!

The young and feisty Moana is the latest to join the ranks of Disney Princesses in Disney’s CG-animated adventure, the aptly-titled Moana.  Set in the South Pacific, Moana sets out on a daring adventure to prove herself a master navigator as she attempts to fulfill the unfinished quest of her ancestors from three thousand years ago.  While at sea, she encounters her hero, the once-mighty tattooed demi-god Maui (voiced by Dwayne “The Rock Johnson) and together they set out to conquer the seas against impossible odds.

Mioana is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the filmmaking team behind Disney classic Aladdin andThe Little Mermaid who co-wrote the story alongside Taika Waititi, director and writer of the vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows.  A vampire comedy might seem a far stretch from a Disney movie, but »

This new clip shows the two women in what is likely their first interaction. It’s the moment that sparks what will become a lifelong relationship for the pair. The chemistry is strong between the actresses, who both are embracing awards buzz for their performances in the film.

Paul Gross and cast shed light on the Canadian war story in Hyena Road

7 October 2015 12:55 PM, PDT

War Is Hell” was a phrase coined by Union Army General William Tecumseh Sherman during the American Civil War. 150 years later that saying still deeply and hauntingly resonates in Paul Gross’s latest war film, Hyena Road.

Gross who is no stranger to war films, effectively swore off the genre after the tribulations of his 2008 film Passchendaele. But after a "meet-the-troops" visit to Afghanistan in 2010, Gross became absorbed in a story often untold – the every day lives of soldiers that aren’t embellished for dramatic effect; the “born to kill” idiom of many of his contemporaries.

After spending time hearing these soldier's tales, Gross felt a calling to present a very real slice of the Canadian military’s efforts in Afghanistan. This wasn't just to use film as a means of educating those who don’t really understand Canada’s role in the war. It was also to give a voice, »

Jennifer Lawrence rebels against Donald Sutherland in last trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

6 October 2015 10:44 AM, PDT

Today we finally get some insight into what exactly is going down in the latest and final film in The Hunger Games series. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) is leading the revolution against President Snow (Donald Sutherland), who she proclaims is everyone’s enemy. The question is, will everyone take a stand with Katniss? By the looks of the trailer, Mockingjay: Part 2 is going to be the most action-packed and intense film of the series, which says a lot considering the films that came before it. While Mockingjay: Part 1 was the quieter film, it set us up for all the chaos that is about to come. 

We trust that Katniss is the best person to risk it all for the freedom of Panem. We’re also very curious how true this film will stay to the final book of the series, which came with a lot of controversy when it was released. »

Arlo meets Spot in the new trailer for The Good Dinosaur

6 October 2015 10:33 AM, PDT

Disney and Pixar have been teasing us about their new film The Good Dinosaur for quite some time now. Finally with the third trailer, we get some more insight into the adorable friendship between Arlo the dinosaur and his unlikely human companion.

The film is the 16th for Pixar Animation Studios, and with their track record, we are expecting plenty of laughs, plenty of tears, and at least in this case, over-the-top cuteness. The Good Dinosaur takes place in a universe where dinosaurs never became extinct, as it imagines that the asteroid that destroyed them never hit the earth. Arlo is a young dinosaur who due to a storm, gets separated from his family. This is where he meets Spot, the young caveman that helps protect him and get him home to his family.

The cast includes newcomers Raymond Ochoa and Jack Bright providing the lead voices, and is supported bySam Elliott, »

5 things we learned about Hugh Jackman's Pan

6 October 2015 10:00 AM, PDT

J.M. Barrie's classic tale of Peter Pan is getting an unbelievable new makeover in Pan, a brand new fantasy film from visionary director Joe Wright.  

The familiar story unfolds in new ways as the young Peter (Levi Miller) is whisked away to Neverland and coems face-to-face with Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara), and the man who will eventually become his nemesis, Hook (Garrett Hedlund). But that's just where the familiar narrative ends, as Peter meets the dreaded pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) who cruises the skies above Neverland in a massive flying pirate ship.

In July, Wright and his cast brought exclusive new footage of their Peter Pan fantasy film to the fans in the fabled Hall H at Comic-Con.  Here are five things we learned about what audiences can expect from the family-friendly adventure before it sails into Cineplex theatres on Friday:

The movie is a complete re-framing of the story of Peter Pan. »

Bryan Cranston braves the blacklist in new Trumbo trailer

6 October 2015 9:13 AM, PDT

Biopic?  Check.  Golden Age of Hollywood?  Check.  Stacked ensemble cast? Check.  Trumbo has everything Hollywood and Academy Awards voters love as Bryan Cranston brings the story of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo to the big screen.

Cranston stars as the highly successful and in-demand screenwriter Dalton Trumbo who saw his career options plummet after he is blacklisted in the 1940s for being a Communist.  The man behind Spartacus and Roman Holiday was persona non grata along with several of his writer pals as the great Red Scare made waves throughout the United States government and trickled down through Hollywood studios and heavyweights.

What’s a movie about Hollywood in the 1940s without a few famous players of the time?  Some of the biggest names of the era appear as characters in the film including former actress and gossip columnist Hedda Hopper (played by Helen Mirren) who infamously spared with Trumbo in her anti-Communist crusade. »

Exclusive: Get a sneak peek at Deepa Mehta's Beeba Boys in stylish new clip

5 October 2015 1:25 PM, PDT

Deepa Mehta’s Beeba Boys may be an intense film about a Sikh mobster who leads his gang into a war to take control over the drugs and arms trafficking in Vancouver, but that doesn’t mean the film isn’t without its lighter moments.

In this clip, we see Katya (Sarah Allen), the beautiful woman that gang-leader Jeet Johar (Randeep Hooda) is dating, fresh from an extravagant shopping spree and accompanied by Harry (Steve Dhillon) and Nep (Ali Momen) as they join Jeet in his limousine. She gushes about how she thinks her parents will be impressed by Jeet, particularly because he looks like the host of a fictional television show. Her excitement isn’t met with much enthusiasm from Jeet or his crew.

Beeba Boys is new territory for Deepa Mehta, and in fact offers a rare moment where a woman is directing a gangster film. If anyone could take on this challenge, »

Daniel Craig is torn between Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux in Sam Smith's Spectre music video

5 October 2015 12:01 PM, PDT

Think what you will about Sam Smith’s new Bond theme song “Writing's on the Wall” for the upcoming release of Spectre, but there’s no denying that the music video is pretty epic. Not only is Sam Smith the current king of the power ballad, but his emotional performance juxtaposed with new footage from Spectre, (involving an apparent love triangle between Daniel CraigMonica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux), has got us on the edge of our seats.

The song itself is more subtle and emotional than most of the other Bond themes in recent memory, and it is a nice change of pace, especially with someone like Sam Smith behind it. The video hints that Bond and Bellucci have something going on, all while sexual tension builds between 007 and Lea Seydoux. We're not sure who Bond ends up with – or who makes it through the film alive — but we're »
