We had a Hitman movie back in 2007 that was alright, but it generally followed the trend of videogame movies being kind of crappy. »

The future is running out in Tomorrowland's new full-length trailer with George Clooney

9 March 2015 1:27 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

George Clooney and newcomer Britt Robertson (Under the Dome) adventure into Tomorrowland this May. With today’s new full-length trailer, Disney has finally given us a closer look into its upcoming dimension-jumping film, which has been shrouded with mystery since its inception.

Boasting a script from Damon Lindelof (“Lost,” Star Trek Into Darkness) and director Brad Bird (The Iron Giant, The Incredibles, Ratatouille), you can rest assured that Disney’s Tomorrowland will deliver on its promise of fantasy/sci-fi spectacle that’s simultaneously both delightful and exhilarating.

And honestly, we’ll watch any movie with rocket bathtubs.

Tomorrowland hits Cineplex theatres on May 22, and also stars Hugh LaurieJudy GreerKathryn Hahn, and Keegan Michael-Key.

Check out the brand new trailer and poster for Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland below!

Hollywood’s 9 Best Robot Heroes and Villains

8 March 2015 9:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Director Niell Blomkamp’s new sci-fi epic Chappie opened this weekend. The film tells the story of a robot who is given artificial intelligence by his inventor, but he must learn the ways of the world just like a child. However, his innocent mind is being molded by gangsters and violent criminals.

Photos: 'Pacific Rim' and 7 Giant Robot/Monster Mashes

It’s still to be seen if Chappie will go down as a classic in the robot sci-fi genre, but if it whetted your appetite for artificial intelligence movies and android action scenes, here are nine of the best robotic heroes and nine of the craziest robotic villains in cinematic history.

Robo-Heroes

9. Gigolo Joe from A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Played by: Jude Law

This is one of Law’s greatest roles. Gigolo Joe is a mechanical male prostitute on the run from authorities after being framed for murder. Joe is a highlight »

Tomorrowland: new poster for Brad Bird's latest

6 March 2015 9:04 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, is one of the most promising-looking blockbusters of the year. Here's the new poster...

There's a bunch of blockbuster movies this coming summer that already look really rather exciting. But save a space in your movie-going calendar for the new film from The Incredibles and The Iron Giant director, Brad Bird. He's directing Disney's standalone big budget effort, Tomorrowland, working from a script by Damon Lindelof. We've seen around 15-20 minutes of footage from the film, something we usually avoid, but the stuff we saw really was very impressive indeed. Here's hoping the final movie holds up.

George Clooney stars in this one, and we sense that a new trailer may not be far away. After all, out of the blue, Disney has released thef ollowing new poster for the movie. And the modern way of marketing a movie is that the poster comes first, the trailer's never far behind. »

Tomorrowland: Big Game Spot, With A Bit More Clooney And A Dash Of Laurie

1 February 2015 8:00 PM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

So far we have not been given a whole lot to go on with Disney's Tomorrowland. They are still holding back the goods. Tonight's big game spot is no exception. We get a bit more George Clooney and a quick look at Hugh Laurie. I would like to see a full trailer sooner than later. In Brad Bird we trust, right? We all know The Incredibles was... just that. I am not sure how mentioning Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol is going to make your average folks say, 'Oh yeah. Now I am totally going to keep an eye out for this one'. Don't you wish they could drop The Iron Giant in there instead and it still have the desired effect?Sigh. How easily they forget. We'll be here,...

Tomorrowland Super Bowl Trailer: “Do You Want To Go?”

1 February 2015 4:06 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Walt Disney Pictures

Damon Lindelof, co-writer of Tomorrowland, brings with him an association to Jj Abrams, and Abrams’ so-called Mystery Box. As such, Tomorrowland has been produced under as much secrecy as Disney could manage. This only makes every trailer and glimpse of footage more exciting. This Super Bowl pretty much had me on the edge of my seat.

There’s a lot I know about Tomorrowland that isn’t anywhere in that trailer at all. Did you see any trace of humanoid robots, for example? But at the same time, some of that trailer sideswiped me entirely. I had no idea that rocket ship at the end was going to come into play – the business with the pin badge makes it look Tomorrowland is accessed through a kind of teleportation, not space travel, so I’m really not sure what’s going on there.

And that was our first »

Which Films Are Getting Super Bowl Ads This Year?

29 January 2015 10:11 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Every year, studios line up to throw tons of money to air ads during the Super Bowl. The football spectacle produces gigantic ratings, which means a ton of exposure for anything that airs during it. As of a couple of weeks ago, only Jurassic World had been announced as getting a spot on the telecast, but with the big game mere days away we now have a better idea of what films will be vying for your attention.

The most intriguing one at this point is Disney's Tomorrowland, since we've seen next to nothing from that production yet. It stars Academy Award winner George Clooney, in his first blockbuster tentpole since 2007's Ocean's Thirteen. It's also being directed by fan-favorite Brad Bird, who's films have all been well-received. We're talking about a resumé that includes The Iron GiantThe Incredibles, and Mission: Impossible- Ghost Protocol. So this will be »

Most Anticipated Blockbusters of 2015 (That Aren’t Already Hyped to Death)

25 January 2015 5:57 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Especially when it comes to big-budget genre blockbusters, hype has become an inseparable part of movie culture. Trailers, teasers and teasers for trailers, along with a steady drip-feed of news, rumors and inside reports, all these are well-handled tools in Hollywood’s ever-increasing mastery of getting you primed and ready to slap down your money. Add the fact that more and more Hollywood blockbusters are based off beloved properties or tied to ongoing series and yearly top-ten lists of the most anticipated blockbusters or summer movies of the year can tend to look a bit samey. Oh really, you’re excited for Star Wars Episode 7? Well of course you are, it’s Star Wars Episode 7. Saying you’re excited to see it is like saying you enjoy oxygen or puppydog kisses.

Most of the most anticipated movies of the year, quite frankly, don’t need any more hype than they already have. »

One of the first toys announced as part of their new venture was a huge figure of The Iron Giant, the massive robot from Brad Bird's under-appreciated animated film from the late 90s. Well, the figure is finally available for pre-order starting tomorrow, and to help hype the sale, io9 was given a video of Brad Bird himself playing with the figure, giving his full endorsement, and maybe even getting a little emotional and nostalgic. Click to watch the short video of Brad Bird playing with Mondo's The Iron Giant figure: Mondo obtained the original digital files to make this collectible as accurate and detailed as possible. The figure stands 16-inches tall and has over 30 points of articulation. »

Jennifer Aniston’s 'Cake' performance earns Sbiff honor

3 January 2015 8:07 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Clearly drunk on Netflix’s mass uploading of all 10 "Friends" seasons, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival announced Friday evening that Jennifer Aniston would earn its Montecito Award. The fest’s prestigious accolade reconigzes a performer who has "given a series of classic and standout performances throughout his or her and whose style has made a major contribution to film." Previous winners include Oprah Winfrey, Daniel Day-Lewis, Geoffrey Rush, Julianne Moore, Kate Winslet, Javier Bradem, Naomi Watts, and Annette Bening. Sbiff honors Aniston for her "inspirational performance" in "Cake."  "Once in a while a performer who we thought we knew gets outside of his or her comfort zone and shows us the unexpected,” said Sbiff Executive Director Roger Durling in a statement. “When that happens it is cause for celebration – and this is why the 2015 Montecito Award is bestowed upon Ms. Aniston." Aniston’s career is worthy of praise, though »
