John Williams' soundtrack unveiled in latest The Force Awakens TV spot

27 November 2015 7:13 AM, PST

The latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens TV spot offers more new footage and music from the highly-anticipated film. The new clip features narration from Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and shows Oscar Isaac's pilot Poe Dameron in great distress.

Even more exciting than that, however, is the release of the Star Wars soundtrack track listing, by no one other than John Williams. For anyone who can't fight their curiosity, the track listing may give way to some spoilers. While the score is titled by key moments in the film, there's still plenty left to the imagination. We'll have to see it all unfold when the film--which still manages to keep its details under wraps--hits theatres on December 18th.

Check out the track-listing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens:

26 November 2015 1:23 PM, PST

Tom Holland dug into his musical theater roots, and his acrobatic skills, to land the role of the next Spider-Man.

The 19-year-old played Billy Elliott on London's West End so when he was preparing an audition tape, he put his physical abilities to good use.

"I basically did a somersault into frame and a somersault out of frame and I was like, 'They may never see this but if they do I need them to know that I've got some gymnastics abilities and stuff,'" the actor said during a recent interview. "And every tape I sent in I always did a little acrobatic demo to try and convince them to give me the role," he said, laughing.

Holland spoke about the breakout role while promoting In the Heart of the Sea, opening Dec. 11, a Ron Howardsea survival film based on a non-fiction book of the same name. Holland plays »

Top 5 Contemporary Big-Screen Bromances

26 November 2015 8:55 AM, PST

It takes some very special chemistry in order to pull off the contemporary bromance. While the term "bromance" is rather current, platonic male and female friendships have been depicted on film forever. There's rarely a more cathartic or enriching experience of watching true friendship unfold on the big screen.  In the new release Victor Frankenstein, not only do we get a spectacular twist on Victor Frankenstein and Igor -- we also receive it in the form of one of the most fulfilling bromances to ever see the light of day. James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe are a match made in heaven (or a dark dungeon, probably). In the spirit of friendly male relationships that are equally as passionate as any on-screen romance, we have compiled a list of the top five contemporary bromances. From age-old times like in Victor Frankenstein or Sherlock Holmes, all the way to two dudes crashing a high school party, »

Eddie Redmayne and director Tom Hooper reunite for transgender tale The Danish Girl

25 November 2015 9:45 AM, PST

In a pivotal scene early in Tom Hooper's The Danish Girl, the 1920s Copenhagen painter Einar Wegener, as played by Eddie Redmayne, sits in for a portrait his wife Gerda (Alicia Vikander) is painting of a ballerina. Breathlessly caressing the stockings and slippers, something stirs in Einar.

It's a moment that cues a coming transformation: Einar will gradually become a woman, finally undergoing one of the earliest known sex reassignment surgeries. Einar becomes Lili Elbe, a celebrated trans pioneer.

"I didn't want it to be an epiphany," says Redmayne of the scene. "It felt like she had been born, and society and herself had encased herself in this masculine exoskeleton. The important thing for me was the film should see that unraveling."

Redmayne, the best-actor Oscar winner earlier this year for his Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything, has proven to be an immaculately technical actor and an expert of metamorphosis. »

Can we be Frank? The 5 Best Frankenstein films

25 November 2015 8:00 AM, PST

Our collective obsession with the creature of Mary Shelley’s seminal novel from 1818 has brought us over 100 years of cinematic pleasure.  For a monster that’s graced our screens and captured our imaginations for over a century, Frankenstein is still looking pretty good.

The first on-screen appearance of Dr. Frankenstein’s monster – the nameless creature of Shelley’s book commonly referred to as Frankenstein – dates all the way back to an early silent short film from 1910.  Fast forward 105 years later, and old Frank is getting a bit of a makeover in Victor Frankenstein, due in theatres on Friday.

This new spin on the Frankenstein tale tells the story from Dr. Frankenstein’s trusty assistant Igor.  A hunch-backed Daniel Radcliffe plays assistant to James McAvoy’s wildly eccentric Victor Frankenstein in their experiments that test the boundaries of human nature on a quest to use science to create new life.  And »

The Avengers disassemble in first trailer for Captain America: Civil War

25 November 2015 7:03 AM, PST

In the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War, Steve (Chris Evans) — ever the loyal Hufflepuff — picks sides with Bucky (Sebastian Stan), his best friend of 60 years who went a little bit Awol in Winter Soldier. Rather than allowing Iron Man (Robert Downey, Jr.), Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson), and S.H.I.E.L.D. to take Bucky in for the destruction he caused two Marvel instalments ago, Cap’ forms a new supergroup of superpowered superfriends to defend himself.

Falcon (Anthony Mackie) is of course on Team Red, White and Blue, but it’s interesting to see how the other Avengers fall in line. Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) fight alongside Steve in the first trailer for Civil War, whereas War Machine (Don Cheadle) and newcomer Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) are behind Iron Man.

Meanwhile in Asgard, Thor’s just hanging out on rainbow bridges and drinking mead. »

James McAvoy on Victor Frankenstein's wild ride with Daniel Radcliffe

24 November 2015 9:36 AM, PST

James McAvoy stars as Victor Frankenstein opposite Daniel Radcliffe as his trusty assistant Igor in the latest adaptation of Mary Shelley’s seminal novel.

In theatres on November 25th, McAvoy is the wild-eyed medical student with a desire to make the dead live again in Victor Frankenstein.  After rescuing a circus freak, Igor (Radcliffe), Victor begins to experiment with reanimating organs of the dead in the hopes of creating a living, breathing, human.  And we all know how well that works out for him.

The chemistry between McAvoy and Radcliffe is electric as they bring the Gothic bromance behind Shelley’s tale to new heights as Victor Frankenstein is truly a tale of friendship.  Co-starring Andrew Scott as a police detective with a grudge, and Jessica Brown Findlay as Igor’s circus crush, Victor Frankenstein shows us a side of the monster tale that we haven’t seen before.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu on brutal film shoot for The Revenant

24 November 2015 7:23 AM, PST

Filming the harrowing wilderness epic The Revenant was like "rock climbing without a rope," director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu told a robust crowd on Monday at one of the first public screenings of the film.

"There is no way down," Inarritu said. "You have to go up or you die. There was no choice for us."

After the credits rolled and the audience stood up to cheer, Inarritu was joined on the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre stage at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences by stars Leonardo DiCaprioWill Poulter, and other members of his filmmaking team, who braved a brutal British Columbia winter to shoot the film this past year. He put the final touches on the film last week for its Oscars-qualifying limited release on Dec. 25 followed by a nationwide expansion on January 8.

Set in 1823, The Revenant, based on a 2002 novel by Michael Punke, follows Hugh Glass (DiCaprio »

Life imitates art for Creed director Ryan Coogler

24 November 2015 7:19 AM, PST

Fruitvale Station writer-director Ryan Coogler is sending a love letter to his father in the form of the latest Rockyfilm.

Creed was inspired by his dad, who showed him the Rocky movies over and over when he was growing up.

And as Coogler told a story about a father-son relationship between Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone, of course) and Adonis Creed (Fruitvale star Michael B. Jordan), the young filmmaker and his cast found themselves being coached off-screen by Rocky himself.

"There was a lot of art imitating life," said Coogler, 29. "The same way Rocky has this advice for Adonis, (Stallone) would kind of treat (us) the same way."

Creed tells the story of Adonis Creed, the illegitimate son of Rocky's late opponent-turned-friend Apollo Creed. Adonis never met his father, but he wants to be a professional fighter, so he goes to Philadelphia to seek Rocky's help. Though initially reluctant, »

Ryan Gosling and the men of The Big Short take down the banks in latest trailer

23 November 2015 1:40 PM, PST

Who knew that business books could make for such great cinema?  Recent successful films such as The Wolf of Wall Street and Moneyball prove that real life corporate corruption makes for a riveting topic on the big screen. With an A-list cast that includes Ryan GoslingChristian BaleBrad Pitt and Steve CarrellThe Big Short is hoping to be another one of those success stories.

In the latest trailer for the film, we are reminded of just how greedy banks can be and the trap that most people get caught up in when dealing with money. These men take big risks that may just pay off. Sometimes cheating the system isn’t as devious as the system itself.

This marks the first dramatic film for director Adam McKay, best known for his collaborations with Will Ferrell(they’ve made Anchorman and Step Brothers). Because of this, we’re counting »

Meet the super team behind new Pixar short Sanjay's Super Team

23 November 2015 1:25 PM, PST

Continuing with long-standing tradition, Pixar will release a new short in advance of its newest feature-length film.  Earlier this year we met a lonely signing volcano in Lava before Inside Out, and now we’re getting ready to meet Sanjay’s Super Team.

Playing in theatres when The Good Dinosaur opens on November 25th, Sanjay’s Super Team is Pixar’s latest short film featuring a colourful cast of characters.

Directed by Sanjay Patel, the short film is inspired by Patel’s own childhood where he felt conflicted between the Hindu traditions of his family and the modern world, which for a little boy, is represented by his love of superhero cartoons.  His attention torn between his beloved cartoon heroes and his daily ritual mediation and prayer with his father, the animated Sanjay daydreams about a world where Hindu gods and superheroes are one.

The Dmv is run by sloths in new Zootopia trailer

23 November 2015 1:01 PM, PST

In Zootopia, you can't even count on the fastest sloth at the Dmv to be efficient.

The new Disney animated film explores a city run by animals, with a fox named Nick (Jason Bateman) and a rabbit named Judy (Ginnifer Goodwin) who are forced to become besties, despite their natural aversion. 

The latest trailer for the film explores the problem with sloths, who aren't known for being nature's speediest creatures, especially when you're in a hurry. When Judy has to report a license plate number in order to catch a thief, the sloth at the Dmv isn't quite what you'd call "quick." This extended clip gives us a taste of the humour in store for audience members... whether you're old enough to stand in line at the Dmv or not. 

The film also stars Idris ElbaJ.K. SimmonsJenny SlateOctavia Spencer and Shakira as various animals who occupy this human-less world. »

The Dmv is run by sloths in new Zootopia trailer

23 November 2015 10:46 AM, PST

In Zootopia, you can't even count on the fastest sloth at the Dmv to be efficient.

The new Disney animated film explores a city run by animals, and a fox named Nick (Jason Bateman) and a rabbit named Judy (Ginnifer Goodwin) who are forced to become besties, despite their natural aversion. 

In this new trailer, we get a closer look at the sloth. When Judy has to report a license plate number in order to catch a thief, the sloth at the Dmv isn't quite helpful. This extended clip promises that this film is going to be very accurate when likening animal traits to human stereotypes. It also suggests that the humour in Zootopia may be as enjoyable for adults as it will be for children. 

The film also stars Idris ElbaJ.K. SimmonsJenny SlateOctavia Spencer and Shakira as various animals who occupy this human-less world.

Finn and Rey are on the run in first clip from The Force Awakens

23 November 2015 10:31 AM, PST

The Force Awakens’ new clip has Rey (Daisy Ridley), Finn (John Boyega), and Bb-8 on the run during the First Order’s attack on Jakku. Based on his dialogue here – and the fact that his Tie fighter is basically destroyed in his attempt to flee – it’s probably a good guess that Finn isn’t the greatest pilot, but thankfully, Rey knows her way around a flight deck.

Sure, we’ve seen most of this new clip’s footage spliced into trailers and teasers, but it’s incredibly exciting to see our new intergalactic heroes just existing in J.J. Abrams’ new entry into the Star Wars universe.

I already love how exasperated Finn is about everything. »

Gal Gadot is fierce and cloaked in new image from Wonder Woman

23 November 2015 8:30 AM, PST

Anticipation is high for Wonder Woman's first time headlining her own film. The iconic character has had her own television show and has appeared in numerous forms, but 2017 marks the film that, as star Gal Gadot tweets, is 75 years in the making. It's a huge honour for Gadot, who most would know from The Fast and the Furious films. The actress has earned the breakout role of all breakout roles, and we have high hope that Wonder Woman will be the beginning for female-driven superhero films.  Female heroines are finally having their turn in the spotlight. With new television series like "Jessica Jones" and "Supergirl," Wonder Woman is arriving at a time where audiences will be more than ready to see a woman at the centre of a DC comics film on the big screen.  The cast of Wonder Woman will offer Gadot some great support. Alongside our heroine will be Chris Pine, »

Daniel Radcliffe and James McAvoy's Gothic bromance takes over Victor Frankenstein featurettes

23 November 2015 8:02 AM, PST

“Like Liam Neeson in Taken, Victor sees that Igor has a particular set of skills.”

That’s James McAvoy at San Diego Comic-Con, explaining the utilitarian and cruel yet apparently loving relationship between his character, Victor Frankenstein, and Victor’s assistant/experiment Igor (played by Daniel Radcliffe) in film Victor Frankenstein, in theatres this Friday.

Director Paul McGuigan (“Sherlock”) isn’t adapting Mary Shelley here; Igor isn’t even in the 1818 classic. Instead, with the help of McAvoy and Radcliffe, he will explore what Frankenstein has become to be known in popular culture, adding in that much-loved literary bromancing that McGuigan perfected in BBC’s “Sherlock.”  And the bromance is alive and well on-screen with McAvoy and Radcliffe.
