Here’s the first The Theory of Everything trailer, in which Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables, Jupiter Ascending) plays a young Stephen Hawking. The film catches Hawking in the years before motor neuron disease ravaged his body, when his theories about space and time first began to coalesce, and when he fell for the woman (Felicity Jones) who became his first wife. Much of this story has been told in the Errol Morris-made doc A Brief History of Time, but now you can see James Marsh (Man on Wire) dramatize it for awards season. Read More »

Even as we’re still talking about the backstory that led to Edgar Wright‘s abrupt departure from Marvel’s Ant-Man, it seems that Wright is pushing forward towards his next film. Reportedly, that project is likely to be Baby Driver, an original script from Wright that the director originally started talking about back in 2009. Back then, he called it “not an adaptation or anything, or a sequel to anything else.” After the Ant-Man kerfuffle, that probably seems incredibly appealing. Read More »

Laika, the animation studio behind Coraline and ParaNorman, has a new film coming this fall: The Boxtrolls. The story adapts Alan Snow‘s book Here Be Monsters, and features a fantasized town in which box-wearing trolls comb the streets at night. A young boy, nicknamed Eggs, falls into the clutches of the trolls… and they proceed to raise him as one of their own. A new Boxtrolls trailer shows what happens when Eggs is drawn back towards human life.
Because this is Laika, the animation here is all stop-motion. While there is some CG used to smooth over seams and in a few cases fill out the backgrounds with extras, everything else seen on screen is something built by hand. The town streets are miniature sets, the villain’s big monster machine is built in sections; even the glowing ripples of water seen in a shot when Eggs stands at the bottom of a ladder were created with old-school light refraction techniques. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

The two Insidious films, released in 2011 and 2013, were written by Leigh Whannell and director James Wan, the same pair that created the Saw series. We’ve known for a while that a third Insidious film would arrive in 2015, and that Whannell is writing that, too.
But with Wan moving on to direct Fast and Furious 7, where does that leave the third Insidious film? With Leigh Whannell directing, as it turns out. The writer/actor has just been announced as the director of Insidious: Chapter 3. Read More »
