marvel civil war movie

One of the big announcements in Marvel’s press event this morning was the reveal that the third Captain America film is Captain America: Civil War. That’s based on a comic book storyline in which Iron Man and Captain America are at odds over the idea of government oversight and hero registration. So how does Marvel do a Civil War storyline on screen when the company doesn’t have a few key elements of the comic incarnation — namely Spider-Man and secret identities? Asked about the story, Kevin Feige explained how the Marvel Civil War movie will work. Read More »

totoro worm

Now there is a Totoro worm. Maybe you have a dog or a cat named Totoro but did you find and name a species of worm after Hayao Miyazaki’s fan-favorite character? I didn’t think so. Researchers have detailed the discovery and naming of a new species of velvet worm, found in Vietnam. Thanks to some specific physical characteristics, the creature is named after Totoro.

The Last Scout trailer

We’re thinking about sci-fi as all the reviews hit for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar; meanwhile here’s the trailer for an independent film that also deals with mankind looking to the stars when situations go bad on Earth. In The Last Scout the situation on Earth is far more dire, leading a ship that contains essentially the remnants of humanity to explore space in search of a new home. It’s a little bit Battlestar Galactica, and a little bit drawn from a few other shows and films you like. But that might be alright. Check out The Last Scout trailer after the break. Read More »

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night trailer

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a stylish and moody feature debut from very promising writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour. In this film, Amirpour combines a hearty set of influences — Iranian culture, Westerns, rock and roll films, and horror icons — to create a unique take on the vampire genre. It’s a sultry and compelling film, with all the energy of the late ’80s and early ’90s independent scene but a personality that isn’t quite like any of the influences it draws from. I can’t wait to see what Amirpour does next; in the meantime I’m ready to see this one again. Check out the new A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night trailer below.

Watch Judge Dredd Superfiend

This has arrived quickly — from surprise announcement to trailer to full release, here’s the 6-episode “bootleg” web series Judge Dredd: Superfiend. The show is from producer Adi Shankar and writing/directing siblings Luis Pelayo Junquera and Enol Junquera. It begins with the youth of the miscreant who grows up to be Judge Snyder, and traces the transformation into Judge Death, a being who considers life to be the ultimate crime. From there, Judge Dredd gets involved, and things get even more messy than they were to begin with. Read More »

Nightcrawler red-band trailer

This Nightcrawler red-band trailer is unusual. Most red-band trailers are restricted because of the language or images contained in the film footage. In this one, most of the foul language comes from critic quotes praising the film. (Though the characters spew a few choice lines, too.)

And, yeah, Nightcrawler is great; as bitingly funny as it is brutally disturbing. Jake Gyllenhaal shines as a very determined man who finds a career path freelancing in scummy late-night cable news.  And while some people might find their road to success blocked by little things such as morals or a conscience, this character isn’t much troubled by such things. This trailer doesn’t give much away, but you’ll get to see Gyllenhaal getting into action. Read More »

Mark Rylance BFG

Mark Rylance is known more for his work on stage than on screen — he’s won three Tonys, in addition to other major accolades — and has been called one of the finest Shakespearian actors of our time. (He has also participated in the call to reevaluate the true authorship of Shakespeare’s work, which explains how he ended up in Roland Emmerich’s Anonymous, pictured above.)

Now Rylance is forging a solid relationship with Steven Spielberg. He is already playing a role in Spielberg’s Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks, which has been shooting over the past month. Now Spielberg has cast Rylance as the title character in his Roald Dahl adaptation The BFG. That means that Rylance, a giant on stage, will soon portray a giant on screen.  Read More »

Late Phases trailer

I’m a sucker for a werewolf film, and Late Phases may have just enough of a unique spin to set it apart from the plentiful collection of not-so-good werewolf movies we’ve seen over the years. In the film directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano (Here Comes the Devil, Penumbra) from a script by Eric Stolze (no, not Eric Stoltz) a blind veteran (played by Nick Damici of Stake Land) movies to a retirement community. There, he runs across a werewolf — as you might expect, right? From there, the movie turns into a battle of blind soldier versus werewolf, and that’s pretty much all I need to know. Watch the Late Phases trailer below. Read More »
