Fathers and Daughters trailer

There probably isn’t a person alive who has not been shaped, in some way, by some lingering childhood trauma or another. In Gabriele Muccino‘s Fathers and Daughters, those scars take center stage. Russell Crowe plays a writer and the doting father of an adorable daughter named Katie. But a painful incident tears the family apart, leaving little Katie to be raised by her aunt (played by Diane Kruger). Decades later, she’s grown into a young woman played by Amanda Seyfried, a social worker who deals with orphaned children while struggling with her own daddy issues.

Aaron Paul plays a nice young man who woos the grown-up Katie, and Quvenzhané Walls appears as particularly troubled charge of Katie’s. Octavia Spencer and Jane Fonda are also among the supporting cast. Watch the Fathers and Daughters trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Seth MacFarlane Live-Action Series

Seth MacFarlane has made quite a name for himself by being the go-to creator of new animated series on the FOX network. He started off with Family Guy, a show that was canceled and then revived along with MacFarlane’s career. Since then he’s created American Dad, The Cleveland Show and Bordertown. Now he’s heading into live-action television territory at his comfy network home with a new hour-long comedic drama series that will be set 300 years in the future.

The Nice Guys final trailer

Forget all of those super-serious superhero-on-superhero showdowns. Sometimes, the brightest sparks fly when two not-so-heroic foes are forced to join forces. And no one does that particular genre of story like Shane Black, as we’ve seen in films like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Lethal Weapon. His latest, The Nice Guys, pairs a hapless detective (Ryan Gosling) with the gruff enforcer (Russell Crowe) who broke his arm, as the two get caught up in an ever-more-tangled web of intrigue involving a missing girl, a dead porn star, and Matt Bomer in a really unflattering haircut.

All of the marketing so far has suggested that Black is up to his usual tricks — colorful characters, ridiculous action, crackling dialogue — with typically spectacular results. And the first reactions from early screenings are backing that up. Get a taste of the Nice Guys buzz and watch the Nice Guys final trailer after the jump.

Dear White People

Justin Simien made a big splash with his feature directing debut Dear White People, and now he’ll continue making waves over at Netflix. The streaming service has ordered a Dear White People TV series, which like the movie will center on students of color attending a mostly white Ivy League school. As of now, there’s no word on whether any of the original cast members (which included Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, and Tyler James Williams) will return.  Read More »

Now You See Me 2 Trailer

Lionsgate has released a new trailer for Now You See Me 2. The new piece of marketing shows how Morgan Freeman’s character, incarcerated skeptic Thaddeus Bradley, has somehow framed the Four Horseman and is using the magician group to do his evil bidding. Of course we also see a lot of visual flourishes thanks to the film’s magic-fueled heist set-pieces, many of which appear to use too much CG for my tastes. (As an amateur magician, I’d love to see more practical magic being used, as some of these visuals look too impossible even if the ideas are based in possible science.) Hit the jump to see the third Now You See Me 2 trailer.

Irredeemable Movie

Last year there were rumblings that Adam McKay might eventually end up directing a movie at Marvel Studios. While McKay is better known for comedies like Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Step Brothers, he was also hired to rewrite the script for Ant-Man with actor Paul Rudd. Plus, his recent turn at drama with the financial crisis story The Big Short, which earned him an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. So now McKay is getting his crack at a superhero movie… but it’s not with Marvel.

Adam McKay has been slated to direct Irredeemable, an adaptation of the Boom! Comics title which follows a superhero who takes a rather dark turn. Find out more about the Irredeemable movie after the jump. Read More »

warcraft IMAX 3D

We’re just over a month away from the theatrical bow of Warcraft and Duncan Jones‘ adaptation of the hugely popular video game series still looks like one of the summer’s biggest risks. Despite the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the Harry Potter series, fantasy is generally a tough sell with audiences…and Warcraft looks like a dungeon master’s notebook brought to life and injected with as many bright colors as humanly possible. It looks goofy. Maybe in a good way. Maybe in a bad way. Who knows yet?

Risky or not, Universal and Legendary Pictures are finally starting to treat this film like a proper event. Although official screenings of the film are set to begin on the evening of Thursday, June 9, 2016, AMC and IMAX are teaming up to host early “Fan First Event” screenings on June 8. And naturally, attendance to one of these screenings comes with a few extra goodies and what-not. Meanwhile, Chinese Audiences will get to see the film earlier than anyone else.

why Ava DuVernay turned down Black Panther

Following the stunning success of Selma, Ava DuVernay found herself in high demand, getting courted for everything from Black Panther to A Wrinkle in Time even as she set up projects at OWN and HBO. But even DuVernay can only be in so many places at once, so this week she’s taking one item off her to-do list. DuVernay has exited DreamWorks’ Intelligent Life, a sci-fi project co-written by Colin Trevorrow which has Lupita Nyong’o attached to star.  Read More »
