The Gang Is Back For More In New Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’

10 hours ago

Making a good trailer is a tricky business, as our recent look at the 20 Best Movie Trailers Of 2016 bears out. In the clutter of movie marketing, making a spot that works and grabs attention in the clutter of advertising isn’t an easy feat. And then there’s the question of how much you reveal, and what you leave out so audiences have something to look forward to when they buy their ticket. It’s a difficult equation, but director James Gunn promises that for “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.

Octavia Spencer Teaches Sam Worthington To Feel Again In Trailer For ‘The Shack’

2 December 2016 3:06 PM, PST

There’s no way around it. The new trailer for “The Shack” is strange. From the incredibly dark opening and the very odd acting choices by star Sam Worthington (remember him?) to the almost cartoon-like last half, the trailer is all over the place. One thing is for sure, “The Shack” is targeting your heart strings and expects you to bring tissues.

Pablo Larrain Paints A Devastatingly Human Portrait In ‘Jackie’ Starring Natalie Portman [Review]

2 December 2016 2:28 PM, PST

There is a broad, prestige Oscar-bait biopic that “Jackie, Starring Natalie Portman As Tragically Bereaved First Lady Jackie Kennedy!” implies. It has a central performance that will be declared “towering,” and a lot of pathos-laden scenes in which a woman in a bloodstained pink Chanel suit looks small and helpless, swamped in a sea of dark-clad Secret Service men; in which a beautiful First Lady looks prophetically sad in an evening gown at a state function.

Amy Schumer To Lead ‘Barbie’ Movie

2 December 2016 1:56 PM, PST

Before the phrase hopefully/rightfully gets retired in 2017, the ugly storm of chatter around this year’s female-led reboot of “Ghostbusters” was a real dumpster fire. And I can already sense that “Barbie” will be much the same. But if there is anyone who can endure the slings and arrows of the internet, it’s Amy Schumer.

The comedian and actress is the somewhat inspired to choice to lead the toy movie, that will be penned by sibling writers Hilary Winston (“The Lego Ninjago Movie,” “My Name Is Earl“) and Kim Caramele (who has worked with Schumer, as a producer on “Trainwreck,” and producer/writer on “Inside Amy Schumer“).

Self-Serious ‘Man Down’ Starring Shia Labeouf Squanders Its B-Movie Potential [Review]

2 December 2016 1:25 PM, PST

The world is a vast and wonderful place, filled with inexplicable and peculiar things, and one of them is the career of musician-turned-model-turned-author-turned-director Dito Montiel. Perhaps with a backstory as colorful as his it’s inevitable that the first Dito Montiel film, “A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints,” which was adapted by Dito Montiel from a book by Dito Montiel based on the life of 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer — naw, just kidding, based on the life of Dito Montiel — was going to be his best.

New Clip From ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,’ Film May Connect To ‘Episode VIII’

2 December 2016 12:29 PM, PST

The big hook for “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” — besides being a “Star Wars” film — is that it’s the first official spinoff from the mainline saga. But it would seem that’s not entirely the case, as a quick tease in a recent Entertainment Weekly piece suggests otherwise.

Waxing about the timeline as it stands, Anthony Breznican dropped an intriguing graphic during his video chat that shows that ‘Rogue One’ takes place before “Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope” — which we already know — but then a red line also connects the upcoming spinoff to Rian Johnson‘s “Episode VIII.”

So, how does that work?

Director Andrew Dominik Talks Creativity Amid Tragedy In Sublime Nick Cave Doc ‘One More Time With Feeling’ [Interview]

2 December 2016 11:55 AM, PST

Imagine a friend of yours had an unimaginable trauma occur. Imagine he asked for your help, not with the thing itself, which will forever be out of reach, but with something else — a creative project. Imagine the project he proposed, which would require him to probe the darkest corners of his life, was risky in many other ways, too, and that by placing it in your hands, your friend was placing in you a trust so immense it could have felt like a burden.

‘Barbara’ & ‘Phoenix’ Director Christian Petzold To Helm Refugee Drama ‘Transit’

2 December 2016 11:07 AM, PST

A trifecta of films — “Jerichow,” “Barbara,” and most recently, “Phoenix” — has turned German filmmaker Christian Petzold into an arthouse favorite. And the good news for fans is that his next movie is gearing up, and as always, it sounds promising.

Noah Oppenheim On ‘Bizarre’ Back And Forth Of Making ‘Jackie’ And Covering The Election

2 December 2016 10:29 AM, PST

Noah Oppenheim has waited a long time for this moment. Today, his first spec script, “Jackie,” is finally hitting theaters. As you’ll soon learn, there were moments when Oppenheim thought it might never happen.

The acclaimed drama went down a long development road when he first sent it out for consideration five years ago. Darren Aronofsky was going going to direct it at one point, but after deciding against it, he never stopped looking for the right person to do it.

Supernatural Mayhem Unleashed In First Trailer For Sci-Fi ‘Spectral’

2 December 2016 10:05 AM, PST

While it’s going straight to Netflix instead of to your local multiplex as a big 3D spectacle as it was originally planned, the question remaining about “Spectral” is: Was it a movie that Universal and Legendary just didn’t think was commercially viable, or a dud they wanted to get off their hands?

Certainly, Joe Moviegoer isn’t going to buy a ticket to a movie based on these names alone — James Badge Dale, Max Martini, Emily Mortimer and Bruce Greenwood (and no knock on them, they’re just not huge A-listers) — but you also have to wonder about how much heart Universal had in a movie that they didn’t release any poster for, despite having an initial release date pegged for this summer.

The Dead Haunt The Living In New Trailer For ‘The Autopsy Of Jane Doe’ Starring Emile Hirsch

2 December 2016 9:58 AM, PST

With Mariah Carey‘s Christmas songs playing in malls across the country, tinsel hung with good cheer everywhere, and the general warmth of the season starting to come into bloom, you might not be feeling up for a horror flick. But if the thought of another glass of eggnog will make you barf, then perhaps “The Autopsy Of Jane Doe” will be the perfect antidote.

Get Lit With The New Trailer For ‘Office Christmas Party’ Starring Jennifer Aniston, Jason Bateman & Kate McKinnon

2 December 2016 9:21 AM, PST

It’s that time of year, when the will to get wasted and blow off the steam of the past 12 months has to be measured against maintaining your composure at the office Christmas party. Many have fallen prey to too much eggnog when hanging out with their co-workers and wind up carrying some real regret into January. And for the characters in Universal‘s plainly titled “Office Christmas Party,” things are going to get — as the kids say — lit af.

The 20 Best Movie Trailers Of 2016

2 December 2016 8:38 AM, PST

We have a love/hate relationship with movie trailers (don’t even get Kevin started on teaser trailers), that is, we love to talk about how much we hate them. But they’re an unavoidable fact of the business, and while we try not to feed the beast of pre-trailer teasers and trailer release date hype, we can’t ignore that our trailer posts are among the best performing parts of our news coverage – we might dislike them in general, you might dislike them in general, but apparently most of us watch them.

First Look: Elisabeth Moss In Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

It’s not just HBO and Netflix offering must watch Peak TV, as this year has shown their competitors stepping up with everything from “The Night Manager” (AMC) to “Atlanta” (FX) to “Rectify” (Sundance) among the best 2016 has had to offer.

Stream Mica Levi’s Powerful & Mesmerizing Score For ‘Jackie’

2 December 2016 7:32 AM, PST

Pablo Larrain‘s “Jackie” is remarkable not just because it’s one of the best films of the year, but because it tackles one of the most iconic figures in American life from almost every unexpected angle possible. It’s a story about a legend who made her own myth, a profile of courage and resilience in the midst of unfathomable grief, and a movie that actively avoids many of the visual cues we’ve come to expect from films set during that time.

Kristen Stewart Goes On A Joy Ride In The Rolling Stones’ New Video For “Ride ‘Em On Down”

2 December 2016 7:09 AM, PST

Looking back on Kristen Stewart‘s year, you might wonder if the actress had a moment to sleep. She’s had five films hit cinemas this year — Woody Allen‘s “Café Society,” Olivier Assayas‘ “Personal Shopper,” Kelly Reichardt‘s “Certain Women,” Drake Doremus‘ “Equals” and Ang Lee‘s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” — and just typing them out made us exhausted.
