The first trailer for Noam Murro‘s 300 sequel, 300: Rise Of An Empire, has just been released. If you liked the look, feel and violence of Zack Snyder‘s original, you’re about to get much more of that.
Following Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) as he marches on the Persian armies of Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his right hand woman, Artemisia (Eva Green), 300: Rise Of An Empire looks big, bloody and pretty damn exciting. See for yourself below. Read More »

By his own admission, Jay Baruchel is the least well-known of the six main stars in This Is The End. He’s been acting for decades, appearing in Oscar-winning films from Almost Famous to Million Dollar Baby and blockbusters like How To Train Your Dragon and Tropic Thunder. Yet, when compared to some of his co-stars, he simply isn’t as famous. That might not be the case once people see This Is The End.
Along with co-director Seth Rogen, Baruchel is arguably the film’s lead character and the “in” for the audience. He plays the pseudo-outsider who finds himself at a star-studded Hollywood party just as the world is about to end. It’s a role he’s been playing for some time, starring in the original Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse short film the feature is based on, and having worked with seeming every other actor in the film at one time or another.
We spoke to Baruchel, a film junkie, about his outsider role in This Is The End, and some of the film’s more controversial elements as well as aspirations to write more movies, opening against Man of Steel, working with first time directors, odd career choices, How to Train Your Dragon 2 and the RoboCop remake.

From the instant In A World… premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, I remember thinking, “I can’t wait to see the trailer for that.” That day is here. Written, directed by and starring Lake Bell, In A World… is the story of young woman trying to make a living in the male-dominated field of voice over work, specifically that of movie trailers. When marketers for a new movie decide to reinstate the classic phrase “In a world” for the film’s trailer, a competition breaks out that pits the young woman against her father (Fred Melamed) and an up and comer (Ken Marino).
Featuring supporting performances by Dimitri Martin, Michaela Watkins, Rob Corddry, Nick Offerman and Geena Davis, the film won the Best Screenwriting award at Sundance. It opens on August 9. Check out meta-trailer below. Read More »
One day, Darren Aronofsky will direct a superhero movie. After three close calls, it’s inevitable. Years ago the director was developing a film that eventually became Batman Begins. He was very close to making this summer’s The Wolverine and, it’s now been revealed, he was also a finalist to direct this week’s Superman reboot, Man of Steel.
Eventually Zack Snyder got the job, thanks to his previous relationship with Warner Bros. and the endorsement of producer Christopher Nolan, but Aronofsky was reportedly next in line. Read More »
Man of Steel opens this weekend, but don’t forget you have one more superhero movie coming this summer. That’s James Mangold’s The Wolverine, the return of Hugh Jackman as everyone’s favorite immortal, adamantium-clawed X-Man. This time Logan, dealing with the events of the original X-Men films, finds himself in Japan and posed with an incredible proposition. If he can become mortal and live a normal life, would he give up what makes him special?
Of course that spawns plenty of mutant, ass-kicking action and this latest international trailer might be filled with the most effects shots we’ve seen from the film yet. Tons of shots of Viper (Svetlana Khodchenkova), massive battles, and a few previously released stunner moments featuring the Silver Samurai. Check it out below.
UPDATE: Check out the first TV spot as well.

Lucasfilm has always stood for something. For many years, it was a beacon of excellence thanks to Indiana Jones and Star Wars. Then, for a while, it was a whipping boy thanks to fan dissatisfaction. These days, after the sale to Disney, it’s a mystery box. A company whose inner workings and project slate are still quite secret. But there’s a list of stuff we do know the company is doing: the Star Wars movies, beginning with Star Wars Episode VII, as well as a new Star Wars animated series and video games. Now we have information on another project.
In a new interview the Oscar-winning co-director of Brave, Brenda Chapman, revealed she’s completed work on an animated feature at Lucasfilm which is now being directed by multiple Oscar-winning sound man and Pixar director Gary Rydstrom. Read More »
So we’re at this haunted hospital and James Wan says Insidious Chapter 2 will include time travel. It’s a mind-bending piece of information that potentially changes the whole nature of the upcoming sequel.
But taking a cue from that nugget, let’s jump ahead in time to today as a new teaser poster has been revealed for the horror sequel, which opens on Friday the 13th of September. The poster features a small child ominously in the middle of a room with the tagline “It Will Take What You Love Most.” Chilling.
Patrick Wilson, Barbara Hershey, Rose Byrne, Ty Simpkins and the rest of the cast return for Insidious Chapter 2, which picks up immediately where the 2010 hit left off. A trailer was released last week and, as part of that reveal, I was ushered to the haunted Linda Vista Community Hospital in Los Angeles to check it out. That’s where Wan talked about time travel and a few other pieces of information regarding the sequel. So check out the poster and read what he had to say below. Read More »
