Iím a total horror movie apologist. If a filmmaker can shoehorn in a few legitimate scares at some point across the hour-and-forty-minute runtime, Iíll probably find a way to defend the movie. I just canít help myself, which is why you should probably take the following sentence with a grain of salt: I am pumped up about this new Bigfoot movie!
Because he is Superman Ė and heís impervious to pain Ė the buckets of ice water just keep coming. Two. Three. Four. By the time we get to buckets five and six, the crew of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice have graduated to plastic garbage pails filled with chilled liquids.
It's amazing what a bit of clever editing, some title cards, and a hint of slo-mo can do. In this recut trailer for The Princess Bride, these elements blend to turn a romantic fantasy that was fit for children of all ages into a horror movie in the vein of Single White Female or Dressed To Kill.
From lightsabers to Darth Vader's mask to quotable lines ("I know!"), few movies are as hugely iconic as the original Star Wars trilogy. But new video has just revealed that one of the most memorably elements of the sci-fi fantasy was nearly cut from the films completely, that'd be the voice of Yoda.
Matthew McConaughey plays Cooper, a one-time pilot and engineer whose unique skills arenít much help when our planetís food shortage runs dry.

What happened to Amy Dunne? That's the question that plays at the center of David Fincher's latest, Gone Girl. In the trailer up top, we see this query explored along with some new footage featuring Ben Affleck, Neil Patrick Harris, Carrie Coon, Rosamund Pike and Tyler Perry.
Stupid Bane (Tom Hardy). That dude ruins everything for the poor citizens of Gotham. Want to take your kids to a Gotham Rogues football game? Baneís blowing up the field. And you booked a downtown chapel for your long-awaited wedding? Bane has to photobomb your pictures by flirting youíre your bridesmaids!
After teasing the conflict of Godzilla and the MUTOs for most of the movie's runtime, the finale hit hard and spectacularly in the heart of San Francisco. Now you can revel in the blow-by-blow action, as Warner Bros has released the full sequence online ahead of its DVD release.
You might well remember, Annabelle was the name of a curse doll who factored into the third act of last summer's horror blockbuster. Now, she's got a movie all her own, and you can get a pretty good look at her and the demon attached to her in the trailer above.
Some men are lucky by nature. Others make their own luck. Jake Gyllenhaal's character in Nightcrawler is one of those second kind of guys, and he's got the footage to prove it.
Outcast, helmed by first-time filmmaker Nick Powell, pairs Cage with Star Wars outcast Hayden Christensen (of course) on a quest for vengeance in a feudal, samurai, sword and sorcery epic. Nope. That is not a series of amazing typos.
So the Up clip demonstrates what we all pretty much knew. There are a lot of pretenders in this universe, and they think they can ape Michael Bayís style. But when you boil it down to the facts, there is only one Michael Bay on this planet.
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 oneís head.
