Sing Audition Clips

If the Minions aren’t your cup of tea, then maybe you’ll be more interested in one of Illumination Entertainment’s other projects coming this year. The Secret Life of Pets is the next one from the animation studio arriving this summer, but just before Christmas this year, they also have the musically charged Sing.

Like many animated movies, this one takes place in a world where animals live like humans, and one koala has fallen on hard times, unable to keep his theaters up and running. So in a last ditch effort to keep the place alive, he decides to throw an epic singing competition, and some clips of the animals auditioning for the show have just debuted before the official teaser trailer arrives next week. Watch the Sing audition clips after the jump and prepare to tap your feet. Read More »

the huntsman winter's war trailer

The most important thing to understand about the new The Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer is that there are at least two shots where Emily Blunt, playing a literal ice queen named Freya, rides a polar bear. Now, I’m not sure what you value in life, but Emily Blunt as an ice-blasting sorceress sitting astride a polar is the kind of thing that can get us through a dark and lonely day. That’s some serious D&D shit right there.

The rest of the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War isn’t nearly as inspiring, looking like a half-baked rehash of the already half-baked Snow White and the Huntsman. And yet it’s hard to find too much to hate about a movie that somehow managed to wrangle Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chasten, and Emily Blunt (on a polar bear!) into the same ensemble.

Battlestar Galactica

Just as Bill Adama refused to give up on humanity, even after countless Cylon attacks and supply outages and political disputes, Hollywood is not giving up on the notion of a Battlestar Galactica movie, no matter how many false starts they’ve had in the past. The latest team to attempt to try and maneuver this big old spaceship to the big screen will be Michael De Luca and Scott Stuber, who are producing for Universal.  Read More »

the purge 3 trailer

Writer/director James DeMonaco‘s The Purge movies have never been shy about melding politics and horror. The series’ creepy, Twilight Zone-esque elevator pitch – a near-future America legalizes all crime for one night every year – has been a vehicle to examine how corrupt systems favor the wealthy and powerful while literally leaving the poor and the helpless out on the streets. You can argue about the results (I think they’ve been pretty good), but it’s always nice to see a grisly horror series bring a little bit of actual meat to the slaughter.

The trailer for The Purge: Election Year has arrived and it looks like the next natural step forward for this series. But most importantly, Frank Grillo is back, which is the real reason to celebrate.

Amy Schumer Live at the Apollo

It seemed like Amy Schumer was cracking jokes everywhere in 2015. She had her first starring feature role in Trainwreck, and her first HBO stand-up special Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo. She hosted Saturday Night Live for the very first time and returned to Comedy Central for the third season of her sketch series Inside Amy Schumer.

But after that impressive run, it seems Schumer is ready to branch out into new territory as an actress: drama. Schumer has just boarded the PTSD drama Thank You for Your Service, joining Miles Teller. Oscar-nominated American Sniper writer Jason Hall is directing.  Read More »

fast 8 charlize theron

There is nothing the Fast and Furious series loves more than squeezing more big names and memorable faces into its already jam-packed ensemble. Fast Five brought an impossibly sweaty Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson into the testosterone-heavy mix. Furious 7 introduced Jason Statham as a vengeful villain who managed to beat the stuffing out of our seemingly unstoppable heroes. Now, in a display of good taste that may be just a little too obvious, Fast 8 is currently wooing Oscar-winner Charlize Theron for a new role.

Untitled Next Bourne Chapter

Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) swimming away to the sounds of Moby’s “Extreme Ways” was a fitting farewell for the tortured operative. The Bourne Ultimatum was a completely satisfying conclusion, but almost a decade after its release, we’re going on another adventure with Bourne. What kind of conflict will he be grappling with this time? In a recent interview, Damon dropped some big clues about where we’ll find our hero in Jason Bourne.

hail caesar review

With Hail, Caesar!, Joel and Ethan Coen have crafted a movie that’s amusing but baffling, challenging but easygoing, and frivolous but about everything. It’s a film that wears its frustration on its sleeve like a badge of honor, inviting you to engage with it even as it tries to hard to keep you at a distance. It’s funny and sad, silly and serious. In other words, it’s a Coen brothers movie. We’re all probably going to like it a lot more in five years if we’re unsure about it now.

Now that Hail, Caesar! has been out for an entire weekend and you’ve had a chance to see it (because you definitely went out and saw the new Coen brothers film on its opening weekend, right?), let’s take this opportunity to explore how this Hollywood farce fits into the larger Coen canon. Like all of their films, this film reflects their larger worldview and shares ideas with some of their best work. Hail, Caesar!, halfway between Barton Fink and A Serious Man, a cousin of Inside Llewyn Davis and Miller’s Crossing, feels like it fills a specific gap in their overall filmography.

Naturally, spoilers lurk ahead.
