Marion Cotillard Chases Love and Freedom In The Immigrant Trailer
Every now and then, a trailer comes along that impresses you beyond belief. The mix of images, music, and tone just grabs the audience and never lets go. This trailer for The Immigrant does just that, as it tells a tale of love, exploitation, and freedom in 1921 New York.

We've know since early last year that Gareth Edwards' upcoming Godzilla reboot would feature a monster other than just the eponymous one - but even though we've seen many trailers for the film we have yet to get a good look at it.

Three X-Men: Days Of Future Past Featurettes Reveal Even More New Footage
Unlike the videos that came out yesterday, which centered on two very specific scenes being filmed during the movie's production, these new ones are a bit less focused. What they do bring to the table is some brand new footage that hasn't been featured in any of the trailers yet, pus a bit of commentary from various members of the cast (but mainly Hugh Jackman).
Eli Roth's The Green Inferno Debuts First Flesh-Eating Trailer
This is actually only Roth's fourth effort as a director, following Cabin Fever and the two Hostel movies. But he's built a heavy rep working on projects like Grindhouse and the Netflix series Hemlock Grove. It's apparently given him the license to call himself a “Horror Master” as he does in the trailer, which is totally different from being a “Master Of Horror.”

How Did Batman Get Into Man Of Steel 2? Zack Snyder Explains
Snyder seems confident in his portrayal of the Last Son Of Krypton, however. Comparing it to Watchmen (while squashing that silly Gilliam beef), a film which he most certainly has not acknowledged its critics, Snyder says he's brought the character into the real world.

Beck has his audience, for sure. The bigger question will be whether he can connect with an audience outside of his core – and become a hit as big as, ironically, Aronofsky’s Noah, which has grossed $248 million worldwide to date.

This Is What James Cameron's The Abyss Set Looks Like 20 Years Later
Before the days of CGI advancement we live in today, there was a time where taking an abandoned and unfinished nuclear power plant and using it to film a movie was considered “a safe move”.
