Guardians of the Galaxy featurette

Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.

So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

If I Stay

Chloë Grace Moretz is no stranger to (onscreen) life-or-death situations. She’s played a superhero, a vampire, and a telekinetic outsider with a furious grudge. But she’s never been in one quite like this.

Directed by R.J. Cutler (The September Issue) and based on the novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay stars Moretz as a bright, talented teen who falls into a coma after a car accident kills the rest of her family. She’s faced with a choice — wake up an orphan and get about the hard work of moving on, or let go and die with her loved ones. Jamie Blackley plays her punk rock boyfriend, who may just give her something to live for.

Raid2berandal

The teaser trailer for The Raid 2: Berandal was one of the most impressive teasers I’ve ever seen, a meticulously constructed series of attention-grabbing moments. The sound design was ominous, the shots were spectacularly violent, and the editing was expertly executed. Sometimes, directors don’t have much say over how their films are marketed, but I just had this feeling that director Gareth Evans had a hand in how this teaser turned out. It felt like so much thought had been put into it.

Ever since I saw the teaser, I’ve been really curious to know how Evans conceived of it. I finally had the chance to chat with Evans extensively last night, and the material from that conversation will be used for a couple of upcoming video essays. First up: How Evans created The Raid 2: Berandal teaser trailer. Check it out his trailer commentary after the jump.

The Raid 2: Berandal is out in theaters now.

jaden-smith-after-earth-header

In the novel The Good Lord Bird, the young slave Henry dresses in a sackcloth during an escape from violence, and subsequently takes advantage of being mistaken for a girl as he seeks freedom. It’s not the role you might assume Jaden Smith would take to follow a couple of Karate Kid movies (the second is moving forward now) and After Earth. Nevertheless, it’s the movie he’s doing.

jackman-mcavoy-fassbender

You’ve seen the most recent (and supposedly final) trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. To complement it, stars Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, and Michael Fassbender took part in a 20-minute question and answer session in which they fielded inquiries about the new movie. But this isn’t the place where Fox’s well-oiled marketing machine suddenly breaks down and all manner of secrets are revealed. No, this is just the place where you get a sense of how much fun it might be to hang out with these three actors for a little while. And that is pretty good, given their personalities and easy chemistry together. Read More »

X-Men Days of Future Past

After some intense promos and clips (and a couple of truly WTF Carl’s Jr. commercials), Fox has released one final X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer.

As usual, the video has mutant heroes battling mean humans, terrifying Sentinels, and their own inner angst across two different timelines. What’s different is that this particular trailer plays up Wolverine’s role in the whole thing. Though he doesn’t tend to be much of a team player, desperate times call for desperate measures, so this one has him running around the ’70s trying to get the gang together.

Watch the new X-Men Days of Future Past trailer, which includes tons of new footage, after the jump. Read More »

Third Person trailer

If Valentine’s Day (or Love Actually, or New Year’s Eve, or He’s Just Not That Into You) were reimagined as a brooding drama instead of a fluffy comedy, it might look kind of like Paul HaggisThird Person. The drama follows three intersecting tales, each featuring a couple at a crossroads.

In Paris, a recently separated novelist (Liam Neeson) and a clever journalist (Olivia Wilde) are engaging in an affair. Over in Rome, an American businessman (Adrien Brody) is maybe being duped by a beautiful local (Moran Atias). And across the Atlantic, two exes (Mila Kunis and James Franco, giving us the Oz the Great and Powerful reunion we didn’t ask for) are battling over parental custody in New York City.

The first Third Person trailer has just hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.
