voltron legendary defender season 4 trailer

Merely two months after the third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender premiered on Netflix, a new trailer has already been released, teasing a fourth season that’s even closer on the horizon.

Anxiety over the missing fifth Paladin and a new Big Bad have evaporated — for the most part — with the team back together again and ready to give the war against the Galran Empire the ‘ole razzle dazzle. Those are Lance’s words, not mine.

Almost Famous Alternate Titles

If you don’t love Almost Famous as much as most of the staff of /Film does, then you might not know that the original title for the film was Untitled. If you watch “The Bootleg Cut” (or director’s cut) that was released on DVD back in 2001 and re-released on Blu-ray in 2011, you’ll see the real title appear, as it was preferred by director Cameron Crowe (who is the one doing the handwritten opening credits as well).

Before the title Almost Famous was settled upon, there was a time when Cameron Crowe was trying to figure out what else he could call the movie, since Untitled was not the most desirable name for the studio to sell. One person who tried to help Cameron Crowe figure out a satisfying alternate title was supporting star Jimmy Fallon, and the director recently revealed the full list of options he was presented with by the man who would go on to host The Tonight Show.

Thank You for Your Service Trailer

Adding another entry to the subgenre of war films that follows the life of a solider after dealing with the trauma of war we have Thank You for Your Service, marking the directorial debut of American Sniper screenwriter Jason Hall, who also adapts the David Finkel’s non-fiction book of the same name that inspired it.

Thank You for Your Service follows Miles Teller as a US soldier who returns home after a tour in Iraq and attempts to get back in the rhythm of civilian life. As you might expect, Teller doesn’t find it easy to adapt to a world where people aren’t trying to kill him, and it makes for some intense drama.

Watch the Thank You for Your Service trailer after the jump. Read More »

The Boss Baby teaser trailer

I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named The Boss Baby, and a sequel was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Man, the Bible really saw this afternoon’s movie news coming, huh? Maybe I should have paid closer attention in church. Anyway, The Boss Baby 2 is in the works, just as the Book of Revelation foretold.

shrek 5 will be reinvention

Shrek is still holding out for another film, and if possible, another franchise.

The last time we saw the familiar green ogre was in the forgettable Shrek Forever After (also known by the patently FALSE title Shrek: The Final Chapter). But Dreamworks can’t let Shrek live happily ever after, and with the recent success of reviving long-dead franchises (Power Rangers, Ghostbusters), the studio is still in the process of rebooting their reliable franchise, just as we heard they would. It turns out Shrek 5 will be a reinvention of sorts.

Ghost In The Shell spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Rupert Sanders’ Ghost in the Shell.)

Ghost in the Shell sometimes feels more preoccupied with how characters are framed than what they’re doing and saying. They usually look and sound fantastic, but rarely do they register as real flesh and blood in director Rupert Sanders‘ adaptation of the classic manga and anime. Ghost in the Shell is a distancing movie never quite as humane as its themes.

Below, check out our Ghost in the Shell spoiler review.
