Marvel Studios has been working hard to put out good stuff for years, but they truly stepped up their game earlier this year with the release of Joe and Anthony Russo's Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Not only was the film yet another thrilling chapter in the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe - moving the world forward in a fascinating way - it was also an incredibly well-executed political thriller that just happen to have comic book characters playing out the roles of heroes and villains.
Kudos to the Foos for stepping up this game, investing the time, energy, resources and imagination that elevates the simple act of dumping cold water on one’s head.
Have you ever been tempted to look at someone else's phone? Who do they text? What pictures do they save? What are they hiding? This modern quandary plays at the center of the teaser for Jason Reitman's upcoming drama Men, Women & Children. As its tag taunts, "Discover How Little You Know About The People You Know. "
This Sundance and SXSW favorite finds this teenager admitted to the hospital for her unhygenic ways, where it appears she undergoes quite a bit of treatment and cathartic therapy to unblock her issues. There's also a nice, handsome young orderly to help her sort out her issues, which appear to involve her childhood, her parents, and a lot of puss, blood and goo.
Elijah Wood, who by now is no stranger to high concept indie thrillers, stars as Nick, a superfan who enters a contest to win a date with beautiful actress Jill (Sasha Grey). But when she opts out of the deal, a frustrated Nick hears from her "representative", who promises a voyeuristic gaze into her home via secret webcam.
Robin Williams sadly passed away this past week, and while we've spent a lot of time looking back on his long career in the film industry, the truth is that we haven't actually seen his full body of work yet. While he didn't leave behind any incomplete films, there are still three movies that Williams finished shooting but haven't made their way to theaters yet. One of those titles is the upcoming holiday comedy Merry Friggin Christmas, which, as you can see inside, just released its first clip.
The following video has been deemed unacceptable for general audiences by the Motion Picture Association of America. Considering how straight up incompetent that organization is, I would encourage you to ignore their warning and heed mine instead.
There are far too many incredibly entertaining moments in Guardians of the Galaxy to list here, but certainly one that tops the list is what could be called the mid-credits sequence. And now it's available online for you to watch over and over again until your eyeballs pop out.
The synch of the lips on the Frozen characters is hysterically perfect for the Fifty Shades of Grey audio. I especially love how they figured out how to animate the sultry exhale at the end of the Fifty Shades trailer. Great selection.
That's James Marsden as the very Nicolas Sparks-sounding Dawson Cole, who is working on an oil rig after spending a whole bunch of time behind bars. Marsden took this role over for the late Walker, who was originally slated to appear in this and Agent 47 before his untimely death.
If you're doing the math at home, you just counted eight baddies, which means this is not the Sinister Six lineup (particularly not with a Venom solo movie also on the horizon). It is interesting that you'd see those earlier baddies there from Sam Raimi's films, particularly considering there are sketches of Doctor Octopus and the Vulture in the room that Marc Webb discusses here briefly, known as “Special Projects.”
Depp here plays Charlie Mortdecai, an eccentric and wealthy art dealer who must recover a stolen painting leading him to Nazi gold. You might not know that from the trailer, which feels like a brief introduction that will continue in a series of ads: here's a goofball who the audience will grow to love! Depp's latest affectation here is meticulous mustaches.
In the world of Hollywood actors, roles come and go like earthquakes. Audition tapes, on the other hand, tend to stick around like the paparazzi.
From the darkest corners of our minds, a monster has resurrected himself. Only this time, Freddy Krueger's not trying to kill you in your dreams. No, this time he's working to save a drive in theater. Undoubtedly in a plot to seed your dreams with his visage, and THEN kill you in your dreams! Clever.
The internet has democratized information, which means you can't scare anyone with urban horror stories - like the one about an adoption agency that re-adopts kids for a ransom price. Fortunately, there are movies like Reclaim that come along ready to scare the bejesus out of any would-be parent thinking of adoption. Beware – your Third World child might just be bait to allow John Cusack to capture and torture you!
