Honest Trailer For ‘Warcraft’ Tackles The Gorgeous, Big-Budget Mess

27 minutes ago

We probably don’t need to reiterate that “Warcraft” was a flop….at least domestically. Whatever critics and audiences might’ve said on this continent, elsewhere around the world, Duncan Jones‘ video game blockbuster earned $386 million worldwide, and nearly 90% of the movie’s box office returns. We can theorize all day why that happened, but at the end of the day, even the director himself admitted the movie suffered from a “death of 1,000 cuts.” And the folks at Screen Junkies are going to slice it up a few more times.

Gael Garcia Bernal Is Hunted At The U.S./Mexico Border In New Trailer For ‘Desierto’

1 hour ago

You can’t really talk about the U.S./Mexico border these days, without bringing up Donald Trump, who continues to hold fast to his plan to build a wall right across it should he become president. Considering his ten year-old son is better at cyber than he is, we should all be worried if that happens, but until we find out in November who will be the next leader of the free world, Jonas Cuaron has directed “Desierto,” a movie that takes audiences right to the line between the U.S.

Olivier Assayas Declares Kristen Stewart “The Best Actress Of Her Generation,” Says ‘Idol’s Eye’ Might Be Back On

2 hours ago

Anyone who still thinks of Kristen Stewart as “that girl from ‘Twilight,'” is clearly putting blinders on to one of the more interesting actresses currently working in Hollywood. Stewart has stepped out of the blockbuster franchise that made her name, and parlayed it into a string of interesting indie projects, working with a handful of acclaimed auteurs. However, Olivier Assayas has made her a muse of sorts, directing Stewart in two straight projects — “Clouds Of Sils Maria” (for which Stewart won the César award for her performance) and “Personal Shopper.” And while he might be slightly biased, he’s unequivocal in assessing the talent of his recent collaborator.

Benedict Cumberbatch Confirms ‘Doctor Strange’ For ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ Russos Say The War Is Just Starting

2 hours ago

As sure as the sky is blue and water is wet, this news probably won’t be too Earth shaking for anyone familiar with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s interconnected qualities. If “Captain America: Civil War” gathered together pretty much every character under the sun, except for Thor and Hulk, then you can bet the upcoming “Avengers: Infinity War” will do the same.

In the latest print edition of Empire (via ScreenRant), Benedict Cumberbatch confirmed that Doctor Stranger will indeed wave his wand (or whatever that character does) in the upcoming blockbuster because, obviously.

The Terror Returns In Re-Release Trailer For The Newly Restored ‘Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer’

2 hours ago

There have been few movies over the past few decades as straight-up disturbing as “Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer.” The title pretty much says it all about John McNaughton‘s 1986 film, which wasn’t even originally planned to get a theatrical release, but film festival screenings and support from film critics like Roger Ebert managed to get it a limited run, even as the MPAA stamped the picture with an X rating, and told the filmmakers there would be no acceptable edit that would get them down to an R.

New Trailer For Jonathan Demme’s ‘Justin Timberlake And The Tennessee Kids’ Hits The Stage

3 hours ago

Whatever you might think about his music, there are few showmen quite like Justin Timberlake. It’s a rare feat to survive teen pop stardom and become a superstar and artist (and actor) in your own right, but that’s just what Timberlake has done, and acclaimed director Jonathan Demme (“Silence Of The Lambs,” “Stop Making Sense“) has captured some of the magnetism that makes the singer so beloved.

First, there’s “The Magnificent Seven” remake (our review), which sees him in blockbuster mode, directed by his frequent collaborator Antoine Fuqua. And then in December, he returns behind the camera to helm his first film in nearly a decade with “Fences,” and it’ll be aiming for Oscar glory. And the first trailer will showcase whether or not it’s got the goods.

Brendan Gleeson Throws Sands In The Gears In New Trailer For WWII Film ‘Alone In Berlin’ With Daniel Bruhl & Emma Thompson

5 hours ago

The WWII movie genre has plenty of familiar tropes, but sometimes if they’re done respectfully enough, that’s all you need to create a gripping film. Certainly, Vincent Perez hasn’t tried to break any cinematic rules in his adaptation of the bestselling novel by Hans Fallada, but “Alone In Berlin” look to be a decent enough wartime thriller.

Fine Art & Film Come Together In This Supercut

20 hours ago

With the world at our fingertips nowadays, art forms feed into others as we are constantly inspired whether nose-deep into a great novel, or scrolling through an online catalog. And yes, life imitates art, but cinema juxtaposes both into a stunning amalgam of characters, scenery, sets, and dialogue, creating unforgettable universes of its own. Oftentimes directors take their own direction from varying forms of inspiration, whether adapting a screenplay from a book (an ongoing trend) , or creating a backdrop that adds dimension to a painting they like, a la David Lynch and his adoration for artist Edward Hopper.

20 hours ago

It seems you can’t turn around at the moment without the “Stranger Things” kids showing up on a talk show or at some kind of awards event. And certainly, the kids should enjoy the moment, but soon, they’ll be back in front of cameras for the nine episode second season. And there’s no doubt about it, expectations are very high.

21 hours ago

What would you do for Benedict Cumberbatch?

When putting together “Doctor Strange,” Marvel had their pick of the crop when it came to leading men, with Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and Ryan Gosling all taking meetings at various points, but it was the “Sherlock” star who proved to be the right fit. But there was one problem.

21 hours ago

Whether you’re in it for the 80’s nostalgia, the reemergence of Winona Ryder, the inimitable ensemble cast of kids, or the pulsating, mind-throbbing music of S U R V I V E, “Stranger Things” has become an instant favorite and classic in its own right. The Netflix series has already been renewed for a second season appearing in 2017, but that doesn’t mean you have to solemnly eat Eggos and adorn yourself with Christmas lights until then.

James Franco, Christian Slater, Molly Ringwald & More Dive Into The World Of Gay Porn In Trailer For ‘King Cobra’

22 hours ago

The world of porn has served as the backdrop for more than a few cautionary cinematic tales, none more famous than Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Boogie Nights.” However, the gay porn sphere hasn’t been explored nearly as often, but it’s set to get some rather steamy treatment in the upcoming “King Cobra.”

22 hours ago

It is, how shall we put this, not a huge week for new releases, and the movie news cycle seems to be taking a little bit of a breather in between Tiff and the New York Film Festival. So we thought we’d take this opportunity to attempt a more ambitious, wide-ranging week-long feature, and one that we’ve been batting around internally for a while now — our official and definitive and unimpeachably correct (!!) ranking of the 100 currently working filmmakers we’re most excited about.

Writing Has Officially Started On ‘MacGruber 2’

23 hours ago

Six years ago, “MacGruber” hit cinemas, and it flopped, but like “Anchorman” and “Zoolander,” it found new life again on home video. Will Forte‘s simple concept — what if MacGyer was thoroughly inept and had a huge ego — started as a series of “Saturday Night Live” sketches, expanded into the movie, and has since become a cult favorite.

Nicolas Cage & Willem Dafoe Are Babynapping Bad Guys In New Trailer For Paul Schrader’s ‘Dog Eat Dog’

26 September 2016 10:14 AM, PDT

While critics might be divided on Paul Schrader‘s “Dog Eat Dog,” one thing is clear — it’s a movie told without compromise. Vicious and violent, the legendary screenwriter and director doesn’t know a boundary of good taste or decorum that he doesn’t cross in the picture, and for certain audiences, that means an enjoyably wild ride, especially when you have Nicolas Cage and Willem Dafoe leading the charge.
