If all had gone according to plan, we would have seen Andy and Lana Wachowski‘s Jupiter Ascending last summer. But Warner Bros. postponed the sci-fi epic at the last second, so this weekend’s Sundance secret screening was the very first public unveiling of the movie.
While Jupiter Ascending reviews won’t be out for another few days, reports from the event offer some hints about what we’re in for when the film opens next month. And they are… not good. Get the Jupiter Ascending early buzz after the jump. Read More »

They say any publicity is good publicity, and apparently that’s even the case if your movie starts an international incident. Thanks to Sony’s delay of The Interview, interest in not only that film, but other similar ones, has risen exponentially. For example, Trey Parker and Matt Stone‘s 2004 comedy Team America: World Police (which Paramount wouldn’t allow to be screened in the middle of this controversy) sold out on Amazon.com. Plus, though the large majority of people haven’t seen The Interview, tens of thousands of them have voted the film up on IMDB. At one point, it was rated a staggering 10 out of 10. Read more about each below. Read More »
December is upon us, which means there are mere days until the final Peter Jackson Middle-Earth film comes to theaters. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens December 17 and the review embargo just broke. Let’s just say the notes aren’t as good as the ones for the final Lord of the Rings film, which won 11 Oscars including Best Picture. They also aren’t as bad as the reviews for previous films in this new trilogy. It’s a bit all over the map, but most seem to agree if you like the other films, you’ll really like this one. Read some early The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies review below. Read More »
I’m sure I’m not the only one who kind of forgot there’s a new Tim Burton movie coming out this year. That movie is called Big Eyes, and it tells the true story of Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz), who becomes famous as a painter, for his images of people with big eyes. The truth of his life, however, is that his wife Margaret, played by Amy Adams, is the actual talent. He’s been stealing her credit.
With Burton, Waltz, Adams and a Christmas Day release date, Big Eyes sounds like a sure fire Oscar-contender. But no one knows for sure until that all important first screening, which took place Thursday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Did it work out? Read a bunch of early Big Eyes reviews below. Read More »
With all the release date shuffling Matthew Vaughn‘s latest film has endured, one could assume it is no good. The film, Kingsman: The Secret Service, had multiple release dates before settling on February 13, 2015 in the U.S. Usually that’s a sign of weakness, but perhaps not in this case. Based on a comic written by Mark Millar, Kingsman: The Secret Service has begun screening for critics and fans in the UK and the buzz is as if the film never moved a muscle. It seems Vaughn has made a film that’s very much in line with Kick Ass, but with bigger action, bigger stars and even bigger possibility for franchising.

Without a doubt, Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is one of the most highly anticipated releases of 2014. But whether it’ll deliver on those sky-high expectations is another question altogether.

Two weeks from Tuesday, theaters with film projectors start screening Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar. That means a few things. One, you better get your tickets. And two, it’s time to begin managing expectations and avoiding spoilers. Over the past few days, the film has begun screening for general audiences, celebrity audiences and press alike. Attendees are usually embargoed from going on social media about early screenings but that very rarely stops people. And if the reactions are positive, studios usually don’t care.
As expected some of those early Interstellar reaction tweets are positive. Very positive. Plus, they suggest while Nolan continues to compare his film to 2001: A Space Odyssey, he’s made something that has wider appeal than Kubrick’s polarizing masterpiece. Below, read about some early Twitter buzz about Interstellar.
UPDATE: We’ve added the reactions of some of Hollywood’s most well respected filmmakers and fans such as Rian Johnson, Patton Oswalt and more. Read More »
