Trailer: ‘Jurassic World’ with cutie Chris Pratt!

Jurassic World

So far, there has been something like three movies about how opening a park full of dinosaurs is a bad idea that will invariably end with Newman being eaten by a T-Rex while he's on the john. So of course, here's the new Jurassic World trailer, where once again, people fill an amusement park with dinosaurs and think, "what can go wrong?" But it does give Chris Pratt an excuse to smolder in a leather vest, so I approve. Jurassic World will MORE

‘Pitch Perfect 2′ is coming! (Well, of course it is!)

Pitch Perfect 2

2012's breakout hit Pitch Perfect was one of those movies that (A) was based on an original idea rather than being a (lazy take your pick) remake / sequel / adaptation, and (B) that actually managed to get a decent cult following going for it. What I'm kind of hoping is that, in about twenty years or so, this is one of the movies that we'll eventually look back on with sweet nostalgia, at least until clickbait websites runs that nostalgia into MORE

Good Grief! The trailer for ‘Peanuts’ (The Movie!)

Peanuts

Every once in a while, I like to pop in here and remind you about the weird little differences between Canada and the US. One of the most notable being that our Thanksgiving is in October rather than November, so once Halloween is out of the way, it's pretty much one big luge towards the holiday season. Which is why I'm sure most of you are probably already exhausted about Christmas, but not us! Especially when Peanuts releases a trailer MORE

Official Full Trailer: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Fifty Shades of Grey

I'll be the first to admit, I haven't exactly been subtle in my disdain for Fifty Shades of Grey (in theaters Valentine's Day–how romantic). In fact, anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of BDSM knows enough to veer as far away from this stuff as possible. But I also know that regardless, this is (and will continue to be) very popular, so allow me to put in a companion piece for the below trailer. Because if we're going to put warning MORE

Trailer: ‘Minions’–getting their own movie!

Minions

Okay, so real talk here: I have seen both Despicable Me movies. I liked both of them. I liked the Minions and thought they were a great addition to the movie that rounded out the plot nicely. But, and this is a minor one, I don't seem to love Minions the same way the web has, to the point where Minion memes are popping up left and right on Facebook. It's like bacon: I get the appeal, I enjoy it immensely, but there's such a thing as too much, MORE

First Look: Avengers: Age of Ultron–teaser trailer!

Avengers: Age of Ultron

Hey, so remember that time Marvel put all your favorite superheroes in one movie and then it made a bajillion dollars (actual box office figure)? Well, it looks like they're going for round two because it's mothaf*cking Avengers: Age of Ultron time–they've got a teaser trailer and everything–the film is due out on May 15, 2015. The two-minute teaser features giant Iron Man suits, Scarlet Witch–and Quicksilver who was the best part of X-Men: MORE

And now, a word about the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trailer

Fifty Shades of Grey

It's been a while since I talked about Fifty Shades of Grey, but since the first trailer is out and nothing else is happening, let's talk about this. This isn't about the quality of the book or the movie. That's a matter of personal taste and for the sake of an objective view point, I can't bring in my own personal standards. Here's the problem I have with it ... the vibe coming off the trailer is that it's supposed to be a dark romance sort MORE

District 13 hacks the new teaser for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’

HG

If you've never read Mockingjay (and really, you should: It's a dark, well-written narrative about power and politics that somehow remains accessible enough for teenagers to read) a big part of the book is propaganda, and how it's used by the elite to trick the poor into killing each other for their benefit. So continuing along the lines of the last Hunger Games teaser, here's the second installment which finds the inhabitants of District 13 MORE

The first teaser for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt 1′

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1

You know, amidst the hype and popularity of The Hunger Games movies, and despite the marketing campaign aimed at a younger crowd, it's weird how people forget that the books are a surprisingly deep Dystopian critique of Western culture's celebrity worship / dissociation for those under the poverty line. But then, it's hard to use that as a tagline, so I can kind of see why. Anyway, here's the first teaser for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part MORE

Here’s the second trailer for Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Hercules’

Dwayne Johnson

Here's the latest trailer for Hercules (July 25th) starring Dwayne Johnson, and before you say it: Yes, I am aware that it looks kind of dumb. And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way. The thing is, I have a deep, deep love for movies that I call 'dumb boners,' so named because ... well, you figure it out. The movies that so gleefully bound away from logic and common sense that they become sublime master pieces. Like Hansel and Gretel, MORE

Watch: JAY Z & Beyoncé “RUN”

JAY Z & Beyoncé "RUN"

Oh my word, it's getting a bit late here on the west coast but Jay Z and Beyoncé just dropped this faux trailer entitled "RUN" (a nod to their upcoming On The Run Tour) that is literally my everything right now. DO NOT MISS THIS! It includes appearances by Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones, Jake Gyllenhaal, Guillermo Díaz, and my darling Emmy Rossum. #ComingNever MORE

Who’s ready for season two of OITNB?

Orange Is The New Black

June 6th cannot come fast enough ... the intense anticipation of Orange Is The New Black's upcoming second season on Netflix is killing me. I absolutely fell in love (top-notch writing and performances) with the show last year, watching all 13 episodes in very short span of time, it's SO GOOD. Without a doubt you'll find me marathoning the new episodes immediately, what craziness is going to transpire this time around with the ladies (plus a few MORE

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ has a new trailer!

X-Men: Days of Future Past

They are really pushing the new X-Men: Days of Future Past hard, aren't they? Not that I'm necessarily complaining, since the movie looks pretty good and the last two X-Men films have more than made up for the unmentionable third movie. I'm just saying, they had me in their back-pocket since the first trailer, now they're just gilding the lily. Although I would say that Quicksilver's costume just looks ... weird to me. Although I think a big part MORE

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
