filmography 2013 As the year comes to a close, the internet will be clogged with think pieces, best-of lists—here's our own—and, of course, supercuts. Every year a few enterprising and very meticulous souls go through the trouble of piecing together footage from dozens and dozens of films released in a given year to create a sort-of video scrapbook. And one of the best is the Filmography series, which had its latest edition arrive online yesterday. Just over seven minutes long, the supercut runs the gamut of indie fare like “Short Term 12” and “Upstream Color,” to tentpoles like “The Lone Ranger” and “Pacific Rim” and everything in between like the Bollywood superhero sequel “Krrish 3.” It’s a clever, and sometimes oddly moving, piece of work and as always, it’s fun to try to see how many of the films you actually remember or know. And if you need to check your answers, »

As we look back on 2013, it’s easy to round up the best and worst of Xyz. But what about those things that surprised us? It’s so easy to make a snap judgement on a TV show or album before anyone has had a chance to watch or hear it. The same goes for everything on this list. From the onset, things like Pacific Rim and Sound of Music Live, sounded like awful ideas but the execution, the spectacle, even the live-tweeting somehow made it better. It turns out these things weren’t such disasters after all. In fact, they were the biggest surprises of 2013.
Even The Gossip Table weighs in on what the found surprisingly delightful this year. Cronuts? Yum! North West? Cutest name ever!
Now, back to the list at hand:

Following the start of a viral marketing campaign which referenced photos of the “world’s largest sinkhole” and a company called M.U.T.O, the first Godzilla trailer for next year’s monster reboot has been released.
The question “Who Are M.U.T.O?” has arisen – and it’s a very good question. They seem quite similar to Pacific Rim’s Ppdc (Pan Pacific Defense Corps) or something designed to track down these monsters, but we’ll probably have to wait and find out properly. That said, there are indeed some photos to go with the viral marketing campaign (see below for an example, where M.U.T.O vans, military personnel and helicopters surround one of the sinkholes) which seem to suggest that Godzilla (or something else) emerged from the aforementioned sinkhole but, again, we’ll have to wait and see in that regard.

The Flickering Myth writing team give their thoughts on the first trailer for Godzilla....
It's been a busy time for the Flickering Myth Reactions with three going live last week looking at Gal Gadot's casting as Wonder Woman in Batman vs. Superman, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer and the announcement of X-Men: Apocalypse.
But we can't rest up, because the King of the Monsters has a debut trailer for his new movie next year released yesterday. You can read Luke Owen's detailed thoughts on the trailer here, but what did the rest of the team think of the trailer for Godzilla?
Martin Deer: Well this trailer certainly did it's job: I'm excited. A few oddly placed scenes in the middle to show the "drama", I guess, but a cracking opening and the tease of Big G was more than enough to get me excited.

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”).
The epic action of Edge Of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Check out the trailer below.
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.
But with each battle, »

Indiewire will provide updates of our predictions for the 86th Academy Award nominations through January 16th, 2014, when the nominations are announced. Here's our take on the best sound mixing race. "Gravity" is absolutely the film to beat here (and is probably the one category I'd call right now), though there's plenty of competition from summer blockbuster fare and fall Oscar hopefuls alike, including "Captain Phillips," "Rush," "All Is Lost," "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Man of Steel" and "Pacific Rim." Best sound mixing predictions below. Check out all predictions in all the categories here. Lock: 1. Gravity Strong Possibilities: 2. Rush 3. Captain Phillips 4. Lone Survivor 5. Inside Llewyn Davis 6. All Is Lost 7. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 8. 12 Years a Slave Outside Shots, But All Possible: 9. Man of Steel 10. Pacific Rim 11. Star Trek Into Darkness 12.

There’s no question that many of this year’s science-fiction movies were somewhat divisive (ie. Upstream Color, Pacific Rim, Oblivion, Elysium, Ender’s Game), and yet on the whole, I’d still say it was a great year to be a sci-fi fan. If we’re lucky, next year might hold even more potential with movies like Transcendence, Interstellar, [...] »
Welcome to Issue 26 of ‘The Marvelous Da7e!’
Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies.
This week: 2013 was a big year for both superhero and blockbuster filmmaking. A few things might have changed the landscape forever. These are those things.
I’m making a Marvel sandwich. Or I’m starting and concluding this list with non-Marvel, non-superhero movie developments. These are more in the blockbuster sphere, but will undoubtedly change the way superhero movies are made and green-lit based on the current monetary status quo of making huge, multi-million dollar blockbusters.
It seems like after Avatar, the market that matters is an international market. Back when I was a little sprout, knee high to a Paul Giamatti Rhino, people would make whispers about Will Smith and Tom Cruise movies, claiming they’d pick up parts because they were stars accepted around the world. »
Universal have unveiled a new interactive trailer for 47 Ronin on YouTube which allows a viewer to scroll through multiple scenes, and find characters of the film via glowing blue spots, get additional information on creatures & weapons, and even unlock exclusive pieces of content. It's very entertaining, as is the trailer itself and comes highly recommended. 47 Ronin opens on Christmas Day and stars Keanu Reeves, Hiroyuki Sanada, Ko Shibasaki, Tadanobu Asano and Pacific Rim star Rinko Kikuchi. Watch it Now! Reeves makes an explosive return to action-adventure in 47 Ronin. After a treacherous warlord kills their master and banishes their kind, 47 leaderless samurai vow to seek vengeance and restore honor to their people. Driven from their homes and dispersed across the land, this band of Ronin must seek the help of Kai »
It's just a fact: some of the best movie scenes involve dudes without shirts. This has definitely been the case in 2013, a year filled with guys shunning shirts on the big screen. Josh Duhamel started the year off on a good foot with plenty of shirtless scenes in Safe Haven, Charlie Hunnam kept the ball rolling in Pacific Rim, and who can forget Sam Claflin as Finnick in Catching Fire? Before you welcome 2014, take a look back at some of the shirtless highlights of 2013. View Slideshow › »

Having grown up a fan of kaiju cinema, the wait for the Godzilla trailer has been almost excruciating. While other movies coming out in 2014 were flaunting their bright and bombastic trailers and announcements of sequels, the Godzilla camp over at Legendary Pictures has been rather quiet. So, with 156 days left to go until the film's release (not that anyone is counting), we finally got our first look at Gareth Edward's Godzilla.
In a word, wow.
2013 has been a big year for the word "kaiju" with production kicking off on Godzilla and the subsequent viral marketing as well as Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim pleasing (some) audiences around the world. But this trailer has shown that 2014 might be even bigger. Pacific Rim was not the runaway hit Warner Bros. might have hoped for, but it pleased a »
Warner Bros. has finally unleashed the first trailer for director Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, which reinvents the franchise for today's audiences without losing any of the iconic imagery that made him the classic monster he has become over the decades. The trailer opens with a paramilitary outfit dropping out of the sky to fire missiles at the mammoth lizard's head. We also get to see some of the massive damage he's done to one of our major cities, and a look at that almost-too impressive cast. Watch the trailer again with us, and check out 6 things to love about Godzilla 2014.
1 The New Godzilla Design!
Somehow, director Gareth Edwards found a way to take the original 1954 Godzilla design and turn it into something very modern yet classic, updating the monster with a finesse not usually seen in most modern day reboots. Godzilla: 1985 was the first time the U.S. got »
The first trailer for Legendary's Godzilla reboot is out, and if you were wondering what to expect, the answer appears to be: "a story of claustrophobic, epic destruction told on a human scale." With little dialogue -- outside of an opening speech given to soldiers about to drop into a city partially destroyed by the giant monster -- and almost no clear view of the titular monster himself, the trailer creates the impression that next year's movie, helmed by Gareth Edwards, will offer a more serious, realistic Man of Steel-esque take on the giant monster genre than this summer's Pacific Rim,

Back during Comic-Con 2012, many people were amped to see first footage from Guillermo del Toro’s monsters vs. robots epic, Pacific Rim. For all those eager fans packed into Hall H seats, however, a bigger surprise was on the way; Legendary Pictures had brought footage from yet another giant monster movie (“Kaiju movie” as the sub-genre is known) waiting in the wings: The Godzilla remake from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters).
Our own Sandy Schaefer described just how epic that footage was and how the crowd went wild for it – arguably more wild then they did for Pacific Rim. It was a surprising revelation at the time – and the mania only built with the Godzilla footage shown during Comic-Con 2013 the following year. Now, with the Godzilla teaser trailer is here for all the world to see, and we have a feeling more people are going to be hopping on ...

It all began in 2012 during the Warner Bros. San Diego Comic-Con panel that featured snippets of the first Hobbit movie, Pacific Rim and Man of Steel. In between all that excitement, Legendary Pictures snuck in a brief surprise clip for a Godzilla reboot that sent the crowd into a tizzy. Almost a year and a half after the project was first announced, the first trailer for Godzilla is here in all its rampaging glory. Granted, the lucky souls who made it into this year's Warner Bros. Hall H panel were able to catch a glimpse of the monster in a promo reel. Toho, the Japanese production company which released the first and subsequent Godzilla movies has put out a shorter and slightly different international trailer. Next year marks the 60th anniversary of the...

Gareth Edwards’ highly anticipated blockbuster hits the big screen just as the summer season kicks off, and now the studios have released an epic first trailer for the mammoth monster movie.
An epic rebirth to Toho’s iconic Godzilla, this spectacular adventure, from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s scientific arrogance, threaten our very existence.

Oscar season is just around the corner, so this is as good a time as any to start talking about which films will potentially be walking away with hardware next March. The Academy is helping to get the buzz going early by releasing the names of the 10 films that will be competing for the five spots in the Best Visual Effects category next year – and it’s an impressive list of features. All the titles you’d expect to see (well, save for two – more on those in a minute) are present and accounted for. Early favorite Gravity will almost assuredly make the final cut, and is joined by titles like Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness, and big-budget...

Last week, the Academy announced the longlist for their visual effects awards, from which five nominees will be picked. The list is made up of "Elysium," "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," "Iron Man 3," "The Lone Ranger," "Oblivion," "Pacific Rim," "Star Trek Into Darkness," "Thor" The Dark World" and "World War Z." Oh, and one more, which overshadows all of the others: "Gravity," which bar some immense shock is certain to take the prize. It's a solid front-runner in cinematography too bu does it have the rest of the technical awards—editing, sound design and sound mixing—sewn up in the same way? Let's look at Visual Effects first. Eyebrows were raised by some omissions from the longlist—while "47 Ronin," "Rush," "Oz The Great & Powerful" and "Ender's Game" were among those left off, the real surprise was "Man Of Steel," which many had figured as a potential nominee.
