On Wednesday, the brand new trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road crashed in. Take a look at one of the best trailers you’re likely to see this or next year.
From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes Mad Max: Fury Road, a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.
Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

You’re not the only one, Max.” Moviegoers last saw Max Rockatansky roaming the desert wasteland in 1985, but longtime fans of director / writer George Miller’s apocalyptic road rage series will be reunited with the widowed wanderer in May of 2015, when Mad Max: Fury Road hits theaters, and you can get a taste of the post-apocalyptic mayhem to come in the film’s new trailer.

Doha – Salma Hayek and a delegation from the passion project she produced, animation pic “Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet,” pranced down the red carpet of the second Ajyal Youth Film Festival in Doha, as the event, where 450 youths are the jurors, wrapped on a high note.
“The Prophet” was partly financed by the Doha Film Institute. “I have to say that the first support that I got was from Doha,” Hayek said during a presser.
“For us it was very important to have in the project someone who was also from the region,” she added. “As international as this film is, it does have the Middle East at its core, and this was important for us.”
The out-of-competition Doha gala screening of “The Prophet” was preceded by the first live performance of themes from the film by composer Gabriel Yared, who conducted a 20-member orchestra on stage, which also performed »

Before I met my wife, my longest relationship lasted a span of only three months. I wasn’t afraid of commitment; I was too committed too early. I fell fast and hard. Every time. But that doesn’t mean I never went through the typical relationship bumps in the road. I fought with plenty of exes about normal things – jealousy, dishonesty, etc. And now my wife and I fight about plenty of the same things, but we handle it, just like every other successful couple. In the spirit of tumultuous relationships, this list looks at the definitive relationship dramas. These are films that focus on one or more romantic relationships. These aren’t just “falling in love” movies. These are movies that dissect some side of a relationship that helps to drive the plot. So, without further ado, let’s join hands on this journey together.

Entertainment Weekly: How tough was it to shoot Bobby's death scene? Weller: I'm a real crybaby. »

Set during the final months of World War II, Fury follows a tank commander (played by Brad Pitt) and his crew as they head into Nazi Germany as part of the Allies’ final push. The film also stars Logan Lerman, Shia Labeouf, John Bernthal and Michael Pena. The Hollywood Reporter’s Todd McCarthy said the film is “a modern version of the sort of movie Hollywood turned out practically every week back in the 1940s and 1950s.” Fury opens Oct. 17.
Could Fury score a best picture nomination at the 87th Academy Awards? Both war biopics and fictional war films — about real wars or battles — have historically done well at the Oscars; however, the current projections show that the race will be a tight one. Here’s a look at some of the fictional war films that scored nominations for best picture:

The Fault in Our Stars features Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort as Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus “Gus” Waters, two teens who meet at a cancer-survivor support group. Though Hazel is initially skeptical about getting close to Gus and warns him of her worsening condition, Gus still falls for her. As the two fall in love, Gus relapses, and he dies shortly after they return from their romantic trip to Amsterdam. The adaptation of John Green’s novel of the same name was a box-office smash and has earned Woodley some Oscar buzz. Should Woodley receive a nomination for this role, she would join the list of best actress nominees who have been nominated for their roles in heartbreaking films.
Some of the most well-known tragic love stories didn’t score any leading actress nominations, though. For example, Natalie Wood was not nominated for her »

Venice - When high schoolers Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash) successfully fix up a couple of single teachers in Amy Heckerling's seminal teen hit "Clueless", the pampered girls coo "Old people can be so sweet!" as the targets of their matchmaking begin to enjoy a tentative romance. The joke is on the naive teens; we're laughing at their blithely patronizing attitude towards their elders. Would that all films were as smart as Heckerling's Jane Austen revamp. There are far too many films that play aging for the wrong sort of laughs. They usually fall into two camps. For some, the idea of older people falling in love and having sex is seen is adorable and/or amazing. It's the same attitude that Dr Samuel Johnson brought to the table when discussing female preachers: "A woman preaching is like a dog's walking on his hind legs. It is »

From the revenge-via-circular-saw High Tension to the skin-shredding Piranha remake, director Alexandre Aja has memorably dunked past pictures in the blood bucket. But with his adaptation of author Joe Hill’s novel, Horns, coming out this Halloween, Aja has just signed on to helm another book-to-screen project that’s more psychological thriller than bloodbath: The 9th Life of Louis Drax.
Based on the 2004 novel by Liz Jensen that follows a boy plagued by violent occurrences, The 9th Life of Louis Drax will star actor Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey, The Fall) as Dr. Allan Pascal, who tries to figure out the mysteries surrounding 9-year-old Louis Drax’s near-fatal accident. Aja will direct off a script by first-time scribe Max Minghella (who co-stars in Horns). Shooting on the Miramax film is set to begin this October in Vancouver, Canada. We have the official press release with full details below.
