3 hours ago

Check the gas tank, make sure the fuel gauges are working, load up on windshield washer fluid, and make sure the brake pads are working. A new, extended look at "Furious 7" has arrived, and like everything else in the marketing campaign for the sequel, this one is going full throttle. As you might expect from the seventh installment, the cast is appropriately massive —  Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne JohnsonMichelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black are all here — with Jason Statham also returning in villain mode, while Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey, Nathalie Emmanuel and Kurt Russell jump into action too. Cars will jump to and from improbable places, Vin will say some dope shit, and your eyeballs will feel like someone poured Red Bull directly into them. "Furious 7" arrives on April 3rd. Watch below along with a few recent TV spots as well. »

Pixar President Says 'Toy Story 4' Will Be A "Romantic Comedy" Not Tied To The Trilogy

9 hours ago

You may be trying to forget this is real and happening, but indeed, a release date has been set, John Lasseter is returning to direct, and "Toy Story 4" is coming soon a theater near you. For many fans, who view the original trilogy as a near perfect animated accomplishment, the news has been a bit dismaying, with many questions to be answered. At the time the news broke last year, it was reported the fourth installment would be a "love story," and now we have a couple more details about what Pixar will do to continue the story...and it seems they might be leaving the original trilogy alone. Chatting with Disney Latino, Pixar president Jim Morris shared a few kernels of intel about the brewing sequel. "I think this movie is not part of this trilogy. It is a separate story, which in turn I do not know »

Watch: Vintage 29-Minute Talk With Anthony Burgess & Malcolm McDowell About Stanley Kubrick's 'A Clockwork Orange'

9 hours ago

Before its demise in 1980, “Camera Three” was a show focused on different forms of art that aired on Sunday mornings on CBS. In 1972, they spend an episode examining Stanley Kubrick’s infamous adaptation of “A Clockwork Orange,” and thanks to the fine people of Dangerous Minds, you can stream the whole episode on the futuristic device of your choice. Running half-an-hour long and featuring the trio of cinema historian William Everson, 'Clockwork' author Anthony Burgess, and the film’s star Malcolm McDowell, the episode aired around the same time of the film’s U.S. release in February of 1972,, notably, before any of the controversy surrounding the film occurred in the U.K. It’s an extremely informative and entertaining discussion of the sort that’s sorely missed on American television these days, especially post-Roger Ebert. Watch Camera Three’s “Examination of Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange” below and »

Watch: 'The Artist' Star Jean Dujardin Steps Into The World Of Crime In Nsfw Red Band Trailer For 'The Connection'

10 hours ago

He charmed everyone with his vintage movie star charisma in "The Artist," but Jean Dujardin shows a much grittier side in the French crime flick, "The Connection." After hitting some festivals last fall and opening abroad, the movie is now headed stateside, and a Nsfw, red-band trailer is here to get you thoroughly amped. Cédric Jimenez directs the movie, which co-stars Gilles Lellouche, Céline Sallette, and Benoît Magimel, and is inspired by the same events that William Friedkin tackled in "The French Connection," only from the European side of the equation. It all looks pretty slick and accomplished, though our review said it "feels at best like a cover version of the classic American crime films of the 1970s." But maybe that's the kind of cinematic song you'll want to hear again. "The Connection" opens on May 15th. Watch below. [ComingSoon] »

Watch: Side-By-Side Comparison Between Oscar Winner 'Birdman' & Darren Aronofsky's 'Black Swan'

10 hours ago

With the number of new hot takes on the Oscars sufficiently cooled down, now may be the best time to take a closer look at this year’s Best Picture winner in the context of an Oscar nominee from a previous year that covers surprisingly similar ground. Miguel Branco has put together “Blackbird,” which plays shots from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s technical marvel “Birdman” side-by-side with clips from Darren Aronofsky’s beautifully terrifying “Black Swan,” revealing the similar terrain of both films. First of all, both films are essentially about the struggle of putting on a good show: a Raymond Carver adaptation for the stage in Inarritu’s film and a new version of the “Swan Lake” ballet in Aronfsky’s. The two main characters both have a rival who threatens to steal their moment in the spotlight. Both also put their protagonists through the ringer physically, mentally, and emotionally »

'The Expendables' Is Going To Be An Event Series Now

10 hours ago

$786.1 million. That's how much "The Expendables" trilogy made in cinemas worldwide, so if you're wondering why a television series is now happening, there's your answer. It looks like the concept of shit-tons of washed up movie stars joining forces is now going be tweaked into washed up TV stars joining forces. Deadline reports that Fox is working on an event series that will bring together "iconic" TV stars to team up and fight terrorists, but probably on an even cheaper budget than "The Expendables" movies. Greg Coolidge ("Ride Along"), Kirk Ward, and TV vet Shane Brennan ("NCIS," "CSI: Miami") will write the show, with the latter acting as showrunner. There's no word on casting yet, but apparently the project is moving along even as fourth and fifth installments of "The Expendables" are being worked on, along with "The Expendabelles" (Get It?). If any of those movies happen, we'll be surprised. »

10 Movies Matthew Weiner Assigned As Required Viewing For The 'Mad Men' Cast & Crew

11 hours ago

This spring, AMC's "Mad Men" will say goodbye, yet it's impact will be felt for a long time. Few shows would garner a major exhibition at Museum Of The Moving Image, but no one could possibly dispute that Matthew Weiner's examination of the men and women of the advertising world of the 1960s is one of them. Running in conjunction with the final episodes of the show will be a film series titled "Required Viewing: Mad Men's Movie Influences." The screenings will feature movies that Weiner had the cast and crew watch and were a key influence on the show. It's an interesting blend of titles from Billy Wilder's classic "The Apartment," to Alfred Hitchcock thrillers "North By Northwest" and "Vertigo," to David Lynch's head-spinning "Blue Velvet," as well as less celebrated films from the likes of Delbert Mann and Jean Negulesco. Weiner has added some key »

Watch: James Franco & Rachel McAdams Star In First International Trailer & Clip For Wim Wenders’ ‘Every Thing Will Be Fine’

12 hours ago

March is definitely a big month for Wim Wenders. The German filmmaker is currently celebrating a long overdue retrospective of his work at Moma, which will lead to a passel of new Criterion Collection releases of his films later this year, and his Oscar-nominated doc “The Salt Of The Earth” (his best work in some time) comes out in theaters via Sony Pictures Classics later this month. Not too shabby. But Wenders isn’t slowing down even as he approaches 70. His 3D drama "Every Thing Will Be Fine," starring James Franco, Rachel McAdams, Charlotte Gainbsourg and Marie-Josée Croze just premiered in Berlin last month and now a new international trailer has arrived. The movie is a domestic drama about a tragedy that irrevocably affects several families (here’s our review from Berlin). Here's the synopsis:  A winter's evening. A country road. It is snowing, visibility is poor. Out of nowhere, »

Premature Oscar Predictions: The 2016 Best Director Contenders

12 hours ago

The good news: last year’s Oscar season is over. The bad news? This year’s Oscar season has begun. Obviously, this doesn’t mean you have weeks of Q&As and gaudy pull-quote ads to process, but by this time last year, “Whiplash,” “Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Boyhood,” three of this year's big winners, had already premiered. And you can bet that publicists and executives have already started planning their campaigns for the next season, even when the films are only just entering production. And as we’ve done for the past few years, we’re exorcising our demons and spending the week running down some of the premature possibilities for films that have been released so far that seem at a distance like they could have the right stuff for Oscar gold. This week, we've examined the races for Best Picture, Actor, Actress, and Best Supporting Actress, and now we're tackling Best Director. »

Watch: First Trailer For Action Thriller 'No Escape' With Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan And Lake Bell

13 hours ago

Two of these names are not like the other. While Pierce Brosnan spent years in the role of James Bond and has done his share of genre flicks (like last year's "The November Man"), Owen Wilson and Lake Bell don't come immediately to mind with respect to action thrillers. But they're giving it a shot in "No Escape" (formerly known as "The Coup"), and the first trailer is here. Directed by John Erick Dowdle ("Quarantine," "Devil" —make of that what you will), the story follows an American businessman who moves his family to Southeast Asia only to get caught up in a violent uprising. They must go on the run from dangerous Foreign People, in what looks like an insipid and vaguely offensive movie (we're not sure it's smart enough to be actually offensive). And tossing a child in the mix seems like a cheap way to add drama and stakes, »

Exclusive: Get Inside Mary Elizabeth Winstead's Head In Clip From 'Faults'

13 hours ago

When it comes to being part of a cult, the process of brainwashing followers involves more than just taking advantage of the weak-willed. It involves manipulating emotional and spiritual needs, cutting ties to the past, and creating an illusion that there is no surviving without the cult. Trying to free someone from the grip of a cult is often monumentally difficult, but one man gives it a shot in the terrific "Faults." Today we have an exclusive clip from the film. Mary Elizabeth Winstead gives what we called a "commanding performance" in the Riley Stearns directed film about a washed up expert on mind control (played by Leland Orser) who is hired to deprogram a young woman (Winstead) by her desperate parents. What follows a tense and sometimes surprisingly funny movie that gets deep into the power dynamics that unfold between between the pair. In the scene below, you can »

Zal Batmanglij And Brit Marling Reteam For Netflix Series 'The Oa'

14 hours ago

Well, here's a reteaming that we're really excited to see happen. Zal Batmanglij and Brit Marling knocked out back-to-back efforts with 2011's cult drama "Sound Of My Voice" and 2013's activist tale "The East." While Marling moved on to a variety of acting gigs including a role on the British series "Babylon," things have been a bit quieter for Batmanglij, though he has helmed a couple episodes of M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming event series "Wayward Pines." But now, the duo are back together. Netflix has announced the new drama series "The Oa," with eight episodes directed by Batmanglij, who will co-write with Marling, who will star in the show. What's it about? Well, no details are being given out just yet so we'll just have to wait and see, but we'll be watching in 2016. Check out the full press release below. ---------- Beverly Hills, Calif., March 5, 2015 -- Netflix, the »

Watch: 'Chappie' And 'Short Circuit' Get Rewired In This Mashup

15 hours ago

There are a lot of very strong opinions flying around about Neill Blomkamp's "Chappie," but I have to agree with our own Drew Taylor who said "there is a lot to appreciate and even love" about the movie. Yes, it's flawed, but it's also surprisingly moving and undoubtedly original. However, for those less enamored with the film, it's nothing more than an expensive, more violent take on "Short Circuit." And so, they'll probably enjoy this mashup. Yep, the music and dialogue from "Chappie" has been cut with "Short Circuit" in this rewired take on both movies. Certainly, I haven't seen "Short Circuit" since I was a kid so I completely forgot that the military plays a big part of the movie. But in terms of functional design, Chappie has Johnny Five beat. Check it out below. [Live For Films] »

Exclusive: Learn The Art Of Forgery In Clip From 'Buzzard'

15 hours ago

The day-to-day grind of office life is something most of us tolerate to make a living, but for Marty in Joel Potrykus' "Buzzard," it's an indignity that's beneath him. He's always got some kind of con going on, but his latest scheme is one that will find him in over his head. And today, we have an exclusive clip from the edgy film that won a Special Mention Award from the Junior Jury at the Locarno International Film Festival. Written, directed and starring Joel Potrykus along with Joshua Burge, Teri Ann Nelson, Alan Longstreet, Rico Bruce Wade and Katie Call, the story zeroes in on Marty who seizes an opportunity when it lands right in his lap. Entrusted with some undelivered checks, the young man soon sees the possibility to make some cash, and as you'll see in the sequence below, he's figured out a way to forge the required signatures. »

27-Hour Marvel Movie Marathon Including 'Avengers: Age Of Ultron' Coming To A Theater Near You

16 hours ago

Let's say you're one of the five people on the planet who has never seen a Marvel movie, and with "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" coming, you want to catch up with the cinematic universe all at once. Or maybe, you're a Marvel mega-fan who wants to overload on your favorite superheroes all at once. Well, AMC Theaters, Regal Entertainment, Cinemark, Megaplex, Harkins and National Amusements has you covered. The theaters will host the Marvel Ultimate Marathon Event, a non-stop 27-hour movie-fest starting on April 29th with "Iron Man" and ending the next day with "Avengers: Age Of Ultron." The upside? It'll be a full day of Marvel movies with the most dedicated and enthusiastic fans out there. The downside? You'll have to sit through the Thor movies (though perhaps that would be a good time to duck out and catch a nap). This will set you back a whopping $65 dollars or just under $6 per movie. »

Watch: First Trailer For Gillian Flynn's 'Dark Places' Starring Charlize Theron, Chloë Moretz, And Nicholas Hoult

16 hours ago

So... what happened? Even before we got our first look at David Fincher's "Gone Girl," in late 2013 that other Gillian Flynn adaptation, "Dark Places," released its first image. And then a deafening silence followed. Along the way, cult/arthouse distributors A24 picked up the movie, and it was pretty much assumed that "Gone Girl" and "Dark Places" would stay out of each other's way. We didn't expect that the picture would suddenly open up overseas with little in the way of advance fanfare, but that's right, in just one month "Dark Places" arrives in France. And the first trailer is here. Featuring a pretty terrific ensemble of Charlize TheronCorey StollTye SheridanChloë Grace MoretzNicholas HoultSterling Jerins and Christina Hendricks with Gilles Paquet-Brenner ("Sarah's Key") directing, the story follows Libby Day (Theron), who as a teenager »

Warner Bros. CEO Says DC Movies Are "Edgier" Than Marvel Films

16 hours ago

Oh boy, here we go again. There is nothing fanboys love to debate more than the merits of DC versus Marvel movies, which is a bit silly considering they are in the big, mainstream, blockbuster sandbox. Sure, one could argue the approach of Zack Snyder and co. is a bit more po-faced than Joss Whedon's quip-fests, but let's face it: at the end of the day, both "Man Of Steel" and "The Avengers" reveled in CGI fulled, big city mayhem. But the CEO of Warner Bros., Kevin Tsujihara, who has a mega-slate of DC comics, world-building movies on the horizon, wants to make a clear distinction between his expensive tentpoles and Marvel's big expensive tentpoles. “The worlds of DC are very different. They’re steeped in realism, and they’re a little bit edgier than Marvel’s movies,” he said during the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference. We're »
