Trailer: ‘Intramural’ (starring lots of SNL peeps)

Intramural

After the major cast upheaval that capped off last season of Saturday Night Live, it's nice to see that the new crop of performers and writers have come together and carved out a voice for themselves. (Dongs All Over The World. Perfection.) Anyway, now that they have their footing, it's time for them to start playing around in indie comedy movies, so with that in mind, here's the trailer for Intramural (premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival), MORE

Trailer: Jupiter Ascending

Jupiter Ascending

Here's the truth: The BF and I normally agree on just about everything, but we have VASTLY differing taste in movies and TV shows. For example, I love 30 Rock and Parks and Recreation, and he would rather eat a bucket of deep-fried spiders. And while Dune is one of his favorite movies, my eyes glazed over after thirty minutes of ... all of that. Sci-fi is not my forte, and it's absolutely his. Anyway, here's the Andy and Lana Wachowski directed MORE

Trailer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been characters whose looks just didn't translate well in real life. Shockingly, mutant reptiles tend to be cuter when they're hand-drawn than when they're rendered in real life, where they plummet into the uncanny valley and claw their way into your subconscious. With that in mind, here's the trailer for director Michael Bay's new TMNT movie (due out this coming August), which actually doesn't look MORE

Trailer: Dwayne Johnson is ‘Hercules’

Dwayne Johnson

Remember how yesterday I posted pictures of Dwayne Johnson looking all hot and muscley as Hercules? Well, here's the trailer for that movie, set for a July 25th release. It doesn't show a whole lot, but I'm still pretty confident about it because Johnson has always been pretty dependable for committing to a movie completely and elevating the material. Fingers crossed! MORE

SXSW Film Review: Fort Tilden

Fort TIlden

I blame Lena Dunham. It all started when Tiny Furniture premiered at SXSW’s 2010 Film Festival and won the Grand Jury Award for Best Narrative Feature. She took the reigns from the mumblecore pioneers Andrew Bujalski (Funny Ha Ha) and Mark and Jay Duplass (The Puffy Chair, Baghead) and sold it to HBO. Movies made by twenty-somethings about twenty-somethings now has corporate money to share its millennial neuroses with the larger culture. Girls MORE

Disney & Pixar are making The Incredibles 2 (and Cars 3)

The Incredibles

Good news! Almost ten years after the original, Disney and Pixar are finally working on a sequel to The Incredibles! And also Cars 3. Yes, a whole new look at one of Pixar's most beloved, memorable movies! And another turd from that series about talking cars. Time reports ... Brad Bird, who directed and wrote the original 2004 film, is now writing The Incredibles 2. Bird had previously been hesitant to continue the story of Mr. Incredible and MORE

Here’s another trailer for Disney’s ‘Maleficent’

Maleficent

I'm in a very weird place with Disney's Maleficent (May 30). On one hand, I love the new trailer, and I really love the direction the movie seems to be going in with the title character played by Angelina Jolie. On the other hand, the trailer's are starting to get a touch to ... showy. I'll still see the movie, no doubt about it, but it's getting to the point where they're showing too much from the movie and I'm worried that too much reveal is MORE

Teaser Trailer: The Peanuts movie looks MAGICAL!

Peanuts

Oh man, this is so sweet. So very, very sweet. Here's the teaser trailer for Peanuts the movie (opening in 3D sometime next year), the CGI adaptation of the beloved Charles Schulz comic strip. And like The LEGO Movie, it understands how to recreate the look and feel of a childhood classic using new media without losing any of the charm. Seriously, look at it! LOOK AT IT! IT IS DELIGHTFUL! For the first time ever, Snoopy, Charlie Brown and MORE

Film Review: Bad Words

Bad Words

The poster for Bad Words look almost austere: muted tones, calming white Helvetica title, Jason Bateman’s name, centered and high, with just a pinch of kerning. His mouth is the only image on display, curled as if about to spit or say a four-letter word. It could be the latest cinematic retelling of Jane Austen (“See You Next Tuesday: A Modern Emma” starring Lea Michele and Jason Bateman). It is the mass market equivalent of artsy and edgy. MORE

SXSW Film Review: Take Care (with Leslie Bibb)

Take Care / Leslie Bibb

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you got hit by a car in New York City and broke an arm and a leg? Are there people in your life that would take care of you? Well, Liz Tuccillo, writer and director of Take Care has imagined that exact scenario. The charismatic Leslie Bibb stars in the film as Frannie, a single woman who happens to live in a four-story walkup in Manhattan. Yes, Frannie, with two broken limbs declines her sister MORE

Trailer: Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Sin City: A Dame To Kill For

Fun Fact: the only reason I saw the first Sin City (and by proxy, the first 300) was because my English teacher in high school was a hardcore Frank Miller fan who would regularly take time out of teaching us about Of Mice and Men and How To Kill a Mockingbird to extoll the virtues of Mr. Miller. To put this into perspective, we would have been about 14 years old at the time, so maybe this was not the most age appropriate stuff to be talking MORE

The trailer for the ‘Annie’ remake is here

Annie

All right kids, here's the trailer for the Annie remake (December 19th) starring Quvenzhané Wallis, and ... well, the good thing is that she makes for a great Annie! It's the older actors that worry me. Cameron Diaz as Miss Hannigan is pretty rough, let's be honest about it. She's playing that abrasive Brooklynite character that every improv actor has defaulted to at least once in their career, and it's not bad, it just feels like she needs to MORE

Trailer: Transformers: Age of Extinction

Transformers: Age of Extinction

Even though Transformers: Dark of the Moon was a two-hour kick in the balls that predicated on you believing Dr. McDreamy could pull off being a villain, they made another installment of the series. So here's the trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction (in theaters June 27th), which wisely doesn't include any Shia LaBeouf and instead puts all of its chips on Dinobots. Because remember Beast Wars? That Transformers spin-off that looked like MORE

The Muppets wrote a song about sequels!

Muppets Most Wanted

I hope someone at Disney is planning on giving a hefty bonus to whoever's in charge of marketing Muppets Most Wanted (in theaters March 21), because holy mother of crap they're just nailing it. Here's the latest trailer, a full-length song about sequels that made laugh. And not 'laugh' where you just exhale out of your nose really hard. Like actual belly laugh. I really need to see this now! MORE
