Iron Giant trailer

Brad Bird‘s first feature The Iron Giant didn’t make a big splash upon its release in 1999. Warner Bros. didn’t seem to know how to market the film, and with the internet publicity machine only in its first formative stage, some of the tools that can help raise awareness of a film in 2015 were not yet in place.

The Iron Giant resonated with nearly everyone who did see the film, at least, and over the years it has been celebrated as a new classic in hand-drawn animation and science fiction. The good news is that Warner Bros. is planning a brief new theatrical release for a version of the film called The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, with a bit of new footage. There’s a new Iron Giant trailer to advertise the September release, which you can watch below. Read More »

The Hobbit trilogy extended edition in theaters

Earlier this month, we learned Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy would be returning to theaters in October, but it would be the extended edition of each film on the big screen this time, marking the first time the longer editions of the film have played in theaters. However, official details on the screenings were still a little hazy today.

But that’s changed as Fathom Events and Warner Bros. Pictures have just announced the official dates for The Hobbit trilogy extended edition in theaters, and they’ve also released a trailer for the event which you can watch below! Read More »

Mad Max Fury Road outline

For us in the audience, Mad Max: Fury Road felt thrillingly new when it raced into theaters this summer. But for director George Miller, it was the culmination of an idea that had been kicking around in his head for nearly two decades. A new book, The Art of Mad Max: Fury Road, shows us Miller’s original handwritten outline for the movie, dating all the way back to 1997.

Of course, now that Mad Max: Fury Road is actually out, it’s inspired its own wave of creativity, this time from the fans who fell for it in cinemas. One of the most stunning pieces of fan art we’ve seen retells Miller’s saga in — of all things — ancient Egyptian style. After the jump, see Miller’s original Fury Road outline and an Egyptian-style Fury Road reinterpretation.  Read More »

Man of Steel 2 on hold

A new rumor recently popped up saying that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was in talks to take over the Man of Steel franchise from Zack Snyder. But considering the movie isn’t officially on Warner Bros. Pictures’ schedule for their DC Comics cinematic universe, it didn’t sound like it was an immediate concern for the studio.

Now another rumor seems to confirm a lack of urgency to get Man of Steel 2 off the ground as the project is reportedly on “permanent hold.” But what does that even mean? Read More »

Suicide Squad trailer

This past weekend was a big one for superhero movies. Not in the sense that any of them actually opened in theaters (alas, we’re still stuck with Fantastic Four), but in the sense that a whole bunch of next year’s superhero movies have just wrapped shooting.

But while the cast of Captain America: Civil War celebrated at a bar in Leipzig and the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse relieved Montreal of its entire supply of Red Bull, the Toronto-based cast of Suicide Squad indulged in a sweeter treat. Stars Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney stopped by a little girl’s lemonade stand to help her raise money for charity.  Read More »

Mad Max Fury Road Honest Trailer

We’ve already seen Mad Max: Fury Road get a Mario Kart overhaul, and now the Honest Trailer for the blockbuster from the director of Happy Feet and Babe: Pig in the City dives into what they describe as a two-hour, hellish version of the Nintendo racing game.

The good news is that this Honest Trailer doesn’t really do much to criticize what is one of the best action blockbusters we’ve ever seen, but rather just pokes fun at certain elements, like Tom Hardy‘s endless array of grunts. Watch the Mad Max Fury Road Honest Trailer below! Read More »

Clickhole Dark Knight

Since we’re obsessed with all things cinema, we love stumbling across a good video essay that takes a closer look at a good movie. There’s no better way to examine a movie than in a medium that allows us to actually see clips from the movie being discussed as they’re being explained. But some movies have been examined so thoroughly that there doesn’t seem to be much else to discover.

One of those movies seemed to be The Dark Knight, which has been poked and prodded to death all over the internet. But the folks at Clickhole have just blown our minds by peeling away even more layers in Christopher Nolan‘s superhero sequel. The movie is still packed with hidden secrets and insane trivia you might have missed the first time through. The Clickhole Dark Knight video essay will change the way you watch the movie forever.

I'm a Marvel and I'm a DC

It’s been a while since we got one of those “Hi, I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC” videos, but creator ItsJustSomeRandomGuy hasn’t lost his touch, as evidenced by his latest video.

He’s got a lot to work with in the new installment, with both mega-franchises preparing to square off at the box office next year — Marvel with Captain America: Civil War, DC with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And in between all the sniping, he even manages to get in a solid Fantastic Four dig. Watch it after the jump. Read More »
