Peaky Blinders trailer

The first season of British gangster series Peaky Blinders has flown under the radar of many viewers in the US, despite starring Cillian Murphy and Sam Neill. Expect the show to experience a huge uptick in interest soon, however, as the second season will also feature Tom Hardy. The show was created by Steven Knight, who writes and produces. He also happens to be the guy who directed Hardy in Locke; that connection probably didn’t hurt when it came to bringing Hardy into the fold. Check out a bearded Hardy and some of the season two action in the Peaky Binders trailer below.

BOOheader

The upcoming  DreamWorks Animation film B.O.O.: Bureau of Otherworldly Operations sounds like an explicitly for-kids combo of Men in Black and Ghostbusters, as it follows two agents in “a ghostly, top-secret government agency devoted to protecting humans from evil hauntings.” Bill Murray is even voicing the villain, Addison Drake, who plots against the bureau. We don’t have a trailer or any footage yet (the film hits next summer) but an early bit of licensing gives the first early look at B.O.ORead More »

TMNT VFX Breakdown

There’s no point in pretending that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles was a particularly good movie, but the tech that brought it to the screen is great stuff. In a new video, we see some of the process ILM used to animate the turtles based on the motion-capture performers. In the process, we learn that one of the film’s most effective scenes — the impromptu elevator scene — was actually suggested by the actors playing around between takes. Read More »

‘The Imitation Game’ Wins Top Toronto Prize

Toronto Imitation Game

The Toronto International Film Festival is unique in a few respects, but one of the most interesting thing about the fest in relation to other film festivals is that the top prize is decided by audiences. The People’s Choice Award may sound like an also-ran TV awards show, but in reality it’s a big deal. You’ve heard of some of the previous winners: 12 Years a Slave, Silver Linings Playbook, The King’s Speech, and Slumdog Millionaire. This year, the prize winner at TIFF was The Imitation Game, in which Benedict Cumberbatch plays pioneering computer scientist Alan Turing. Read More »

Effie Gray trailer

Entire teams of people working in legal and clearance departments exist to prevent just the sort of stuff that happened to Emma Thompson‘s film Effie Gray. Based on a true story, Thompson scripted and co-starred in the film, only to see it bogged down in two separate accusations of plagiarism by two different playwrights. Judges ruled in favor of the film in both cases. Now it is closing in on release, so we can examine the first Effie Gray trailer.

The film follows a particularly odd Victorian love triangle in which Victorian art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) married his childhood friend Euphemia “Effie” Gray (Dakota Fanning), only to leave the marriage unconsummated. Eventually, Effie embarked upon a more fulfilling affair with painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). Read More »

stolen batmobile

On Friday, a rumor cropped up that one of the new Batmobile vehicles had been stolen in Detroit. The story wasn’t verified, but it did end up at a couple bigger news outlets. Because who can resist the phrase “stolen Batmobile”? Thankfully it was all just a rumor, but the story did give Batman v Superman director Zack Snyder a reason to pull together some of the minor resources at his disposal for a great photo op.  Read More »

Playing it Cool trailer
“Hey, if that other guy can do it…”

When Chris Evans talks about wanting to leave acting behind, maybe he’s talking about movies like Playing it Cool, once called A Many Splintered Thing. The romcom follows a screenwriter who just wants to write action, but is talked into writing a romcom… and somewhere along the way, this self-professed love-hater falls for a charming young woman (Michelle Monaghan). In truth, this doesn’t look bad, just terribly lacking in character. And that’s despite a great supporting cast, which includes Aubrey Plaza, Anthony Mackie, Topher Grace, Luke Wilson, Philip Baker Hall, Giovanni Ribisi and Martin Starr. Check out the Playing it Cool trailer below. Read More »
