In just under a couple weeks, audiences will get to feast their eyes on the latest iteration of Marvel’s first family in 20th Century Fox’s reboot of Fantastic Four from director Josh Trank. We’re not sure if fans will turn out the way they have for Marvel Studios films, but with the hope of a crossover with X-Men on the horizon, maybe interest will be piqued.
In the meantime, you should check out this great trailer remix featuring the ominous voiceover from the Fantastic Four teaser trailer combined with footage from Roger Corman‘s infamous, ridiculous 1994 adaptation of the comic book property.

While some movies are immediately beloved and acclaimed, destined to be one of the films we talk about every year for decades, others come and go without much pomp and circumstance. One of those movies seems to have been A.I. Artificial Intelligence, the former Stanley Kubrick project that was completed by Steven Spielberg and released in 2001.
The film certainly wasn’t a dud, but it wasn’t universally acclaimed either. At the time, Rotten Tomatoes wasn’t used as a reference point for the quality of a movie, but retrospectively, it has a 73%, which is a decent score for such a dense, wandering sci-fi fairytale of sorts.
Over the years, as the film has gotten older, some critics and bloggers have revisited the film, finding it to even improve with age and reexamination. And that’s just what a new video has done, examining the film in a 15-minute visual study. Watch the Artificial Intelligence video essay after the jump! Read More »

Victoria started doing the rounds at festivals early this year, and I’ve talked to more and more people who really admire it, and at times even love it, after it plays each successive festival. What’s the big deal? In this case, it’s that the film was captured in one single shot, running over two hours. And, while part of me thinks 2+ hours is a long time to watch a single-take experiment, the rest of me is totally game for it.
Here’s what the distributor is saying as part of the official blurb for the film: “This film is not a movie; it’s not about a bank robbery. It is bank robbery. “Victoria” was shot in one single take. Two hours and eighteen minutes. No cuts. No CGI. No cheap tricks. No expensive ones, either. Just one shot.” Does that work? The new Victoria trailer has the advantage of cuts, so you won’t exactly be able to tell from this footage, but have a look anyway. Read More »

There’s a new subscription-based streaming video service called Shudder, bringing a slew of different horror films to the masses. Sure, services like Netflix already have a selection of movies for horror fans, but Shudder works a little differently, and it just might be what the more seasoned movie fan is looking for.

Despite the recent additions of Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley, a lot of the earlier attractions and experiences at Universal Studios Orlando feel dated. And it seems like the Universal Orlando mandate is to replace a lot of the older attractions with new experiences (I hope they decide to refurbish and update E.T. Adventure rather than replace it entirely). The latest rumor is that the Twister…Ride it Out attraction will be replaced with a ride that will take us inside the mind of Jimmy Fallon. So essentially they would be replacing an old attraction based on a 1990’s movie with an experience ride based on a 2015 late night television series. More details, after the jump.
