Jurassic World got our attention with a new Super Bowl spot today, and the film looks significantly different now than it did a couple months ago. We often wonder if effects from early trailers will be significantly changed between that trailer and the full movie. It’s rare that we get to see as quick a change as we do from the original Jurassic World theatrical trailer and this new Super Bowl spot.
Quite a few shots appear in both trailers, but more than half a dozen look at least a bit different. Some are massively changed. Check out side-by-side comparison of old and updated Jurassic World effects below. Read More »

There are a couple quick glimpses of a new Terminator in the Terminator Genisys Super Bowl spot, which went online earlier this week and just aired during the game. While most of the footage is culled from the first trailer, this spot promises “a new threat” before showing off a not-quite skeletal metal warrior with a familiar-looking skull face. Check out the spot below.
UPDATE: There’s also a new poster to go with the trailer — take a look after the jump.

There are all-ages and adults-only versions of the new Unfinished Business Super Bowl spot, which shows off the comedy from Ken Scott, starring Vince Vaughn, Tom Wilkinson, and Dave Franco as a trio of unlikely colleagues who head to Europe in order to make a big business deal. Unfortunately, they run across a few of Vaughn’s old colleagues, played by Sienna Miller, James Marsden, and Nick Frost, who are trying to make the same deal. There’s a lot of drinking and shenanigans as everyone embarrasses themselves en route to success and/or failure. And this time it’s all cut to The Lonely Island’s track ‘Like a Boss.’ Read More »
Sundance doled out its awards tonight, with a batch of feature film Jury, Audience and other special awards going out to films that played the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Many of our favorite films of the fest — Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, The Witch, The Wolfpack, Dope, and Slow West — took awards, including some of the major prizes. One change is that this year, “jurors were asked to give an increased number of special jury prizes recognizing excellence in the craft of filmmaking as they deemed appropriate,” according to Sundance. That just means more prizes went to more films. All the awards, and video of the full awards presentation, can be found below. Read More »
J.C. Chandor, who raced from Margin Call to All Is Lost to A Most Violent Year, has left the director’s chair of the upcoming film Deepwater Horizon. The reason? Our old friend “creative differences,” at least as far as the official knowledge base goes. Now, coming in to replace him, is Peter Berg, whose most recent film was Lone Survivor. The link to the new Deepwater Horizon director may be Mark Wahlberg, who is set to star in the film, and was also the lead in Lone Survivor. Read More »

Here’s the first Welcome to Me trailer, featuring Kristen Wiig as a woman suffering from Borderline Personalilty Syndrome who wins millions in the lottery. But those lottery winnings don’t make her life any easier, as she ditches her treatment and moves in to a casino. Oh, and she buys her own talk show, which she appears to host with unusually transparent personal candor. Reviews from the film’s TIFF debut last year were filled with praise for Wiig’s work, and watching this trailer it isn’t difficult to understand why. Read More »
