It's been a busy week for trailers, what with our first looks Godzilla and Jupiter Ascending and now Warner Bros. has released the first trailer (and a brand new poster) for the upcoming sci-fi actioner Edge of Tomorrow, which sees Tom Cruise (Oblivion, Jack Reacher) as a soldier who finds himself stuck in a time loop, reliving (and dying in) the same battle time and again; check out the first trailer after the official synopsis....
The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, »

Oscar nominee Tom Cruise (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “Collateral,” “Jerry Maguire”) and Emily Blunt (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “The Adjustment Bureau”) star in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Village Roadshow Pictures’ sci-fi thriller Edge Of Tomorrow, under the direction of Doug Liman (“The Bourne Identity,” “Mr. & Mrs. Smith”).

Major William Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage now finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop—forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again…and again.

The film costars Emily Blunt (Into the Woods) and Bill Paxton (2 Guns) as human soldiers in a not-too-distant futuristic war against invading aliens. The twist on this familiar genre scenario? Cruise’s protagonist is killed in battle, then gets caught in a time loop that allows him to re-experience his final day as a breathing person, over and over – gaining in skill as he does so.
Edge of Tomorrow is based on Hiroshi Sakurazaka’s light novel All You Need Is Kill and was co-adapted for the big screen by the likes of big-shot screenwriters Christopher McQuarrie (Jack Reacher) and Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (The Amazing Spider-Man 2), though its premise sounds more like an amalgamation of Hollywood sci-fi titles; ...

The frustratingly vague marketing campaign for the Godzilla reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures continues this week with a cluster of viral videos featuring brief, grainy footage from the film and a voiceover that is believed to be from actor David Strathairn, who may or may not be playing a military leader of some sort in the movie based on previous rumors. Judging from the videos, it seems like a pretty safe bet that he is.
Strung together from all the videos in succession, here is what Strathairn’s character says:
“You want to help. Well, this is your chance. I realize not all of you have had hands-on experience. I know many of you have family and loved ones still in the city. None of us have ever faced a situation quite like this one before. Remember your training and you’ll be fine.”

If you're a fan of b-movie tribute creature features such as 'Eight Legged Freaks' or 'Slither' then we reckon that upcoming Benni Diez helmed horror 'Stung' will be right up your street. A few new behind the scenes images from the now wrapped project have appeared over on it's official Facebook fan page featuring Matt O'Leary ('In Time') and hottie and former model Jessica Cook in the action and well bloodied up. Clifton Collins Jr. ('Hellbenders'), Lance Henriksen ('Aliens') and Peter Stormare ('Fargo') also star. Head below for the new images. »
The Bechdel Test, which examines the representation of women in film, is in the ether at the moment, so this week’s Question is another way of looking at the paucity of women onscreen.
What are the greatest or most iconic movie quotes spoken by women?
The dialogue doesn’t need to be feminist. It doesn’t need to come from a film that passes the Bechdel Test. It doesn’t need to be anything other than so memorable that when it is uttered even outside the context of its story, most people recognize it.
I’m going to get what I think are the three most likely responses out of the way right here:
• “You know how to whistle, don’t you? »

The final film for the 2013 edition of Late Nite Grindhouse is a doozy. You might have been hearing about this film as of late but nothing can prepare you for what you will witness when you see The Visitor.
“The holiest of holy-fucking-shits and has the highest Jdpm (Jaw Drops Per Minute) ratio of any film of its era, Italian ripoff or not.” – The Cinefamily

Alfonso Cuarón's space odyssey is a visually mesmerising, crowd-pleasing fairground ride
There's a sequence in Stanley Kubrick's epochal 2001: A Space Odyssey in which the cranky supercomputer Hal throws a space pod at astronaut Frank Poole, sending him spinning silently through the empty void. This sequence is effectively expanded to feature-film length in Alfonso Cuarón's eye-boggling Gravity, which hurls Sandra Bullock and George Clooney into the abyss after their Hubble-attached shuttle is hit by an avalanche of space debris. Swirling among scattered shards of ever-circling extraterrestrial junk, our unfeasibly good-looking heroes must get a grip on anything that will offer them safe re-entry into Earth's atmosphere or drift ever further into the depths of space – cold, dark and utterly alone.
Created through a painstaking combination of physical and digital performance that disintegrates the divide between live action and animation, Gravity boasts a level of sheer visual invention »

Don’t worry if you haven’t seen of heard of The Visitor. Not many have seen this cult film from the ’70, but Drafthouse Films is giving the movie a limited theatrical release. We already gave you a look at the trailer and now we have three clips, including the first three minutes of the movie.

There are good director's cuts and there are bad director's cuts. The theatrical cut of Michael Cimino's "Heaven's Gate," which feels like an incredulous, 149-minute epyllion of dirt and dust filmed through a glaze of vaseline, is a shell of the much longer, 219-minute director's cut, which somehow feels shorter, more coherent, more gorgeously tragic. That's a good director's cut. Sergio Leone's four-hour anti-gangster tragedy "Once Upon a Time in America" was butchered by studios, purging it of its suspense, its character progressions (and mutations), the ethereality created by Leone's nonlinear narrative. The theatrical cut is an abomination, heartbreaking in all the wrong ways; the four-hour version is sublime, earnestly heartbreaking, and a great director's cut. James Cameron's "Aliens" and "Terminator 2," two great, lean, tight, tense action-thrillers with impeccably efficient (and effective) pacing and startling effects, are both bloated and tranquilized in his unnecessary »

Do we really need spoiler-filled trailers? When it comes to forthcoming movies, ignorance is sometimes bliss, James writes...
I don't know much about Gravity. I'm not talking about the force because I do know a bit about that. I remember getting some basic info and an anecdote about Sir Isaac Newton's apple tree in physics lessons at school. I've seen gravity in action and have personal experiences of it, though fortunately nothing that would inspire any Jimmy-Stewart-in-Vertigo-style trauma.
I know that Mars (Barsoom) has lower gravity than Earth and that's why John Carter can leap really high and really far when he's on the planet. I know that the Battle Room in Ender's Game has zero gravity and that makes for a fun combat simulation experience for kids coerced into an ultra-serious military career ultimately aiming at alien genocide. That in itself is a »
