There are still more than 180 days left until Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, and fans probably need all the help they can get passing the time until December 18th arrives. They’ll get some help in September when Force Friday unveils a bunch of new merchandise from Episode VII. Otherwise, you just have to bide your time until Christmas arrives.
And to help out with that, one YouTube user decided to spend his time waiting for The Force Awakens by combining all six of the Star Wars movies into a single video. I don’t mean that he edited all six movies down into a single movie. Instead, he took all six movies and put them on top of each other and played them at the same time.

When you think of the work of directing icons Steven Spielberg and David Fincher, there may not be a lot of similarities that come to mind immediately. Fincher is much more dark, gritty and grounded, while Spielberg is known best for his blockbuster fare and grand storytelling.
However, a short video essay has popped up online that points out three areas where Spielberg’s work has influenced the films of David Fincher. But to find out how Steven Spielberg influences David fincher, you’ll have to watch the video after the jump! Read More »
No one argues the impact of Toy Story. The 1995 film totally changed the world of animation, making hand-drawn films all but obsolete. Pixar’s way of thinking changed filmmaking, too. The studio’s incredible success rate, which started with Toy Story, was due in part of their Brain Trust method of making movies. Since then almost every major studio has adopted this thinking in one way or another. Not to mention the film is just delightful. It is funny, introspective, and smart, a true cinema classic.
So is there anything wrong with it? Well, maybe. The team at Honest Trailers have made a Toy Story Honest Trailer that celebrates the film for its quality and cultural significance, but also questions some of the film’s philosophy and context. It’s a very interesting and entertaining watch. Check out the Toy Story Honest Trailer below. Read More »
After Jurassic World raked in over $511 million at the worldwide box office this weekend, it’s safe to say that director Colin Trevorrow is now a big time filmmaker. He may not be returning for Jurassic World 2, but he will forever be credited with reinvigorating the Jurassic Park franchise, whether fans are pleased by his work or not.
But before he became an indie sensation turned blockbuster filmmaker, Trevorrow was just another aspiring filmmaker. And thanks to the magic of the internet, we can take a look at some of the director’s very early work. Below you can watch Colin Trevorrow’s Home Base, a short film he directed back in 2002 when he was 26 years old.

The folks at How It Should Have Ended previously skewered The Avengers: Age of Ultron by poking fun at one of the trailers for the Marvel Studios sequel. But now that the full film has been out in theaters for over a month, and the team has had a chance to soak it in a few times, they’re taking aim at the whole enchilada.
While the gang usually takes a look at the ending of any given film and plays around with it, this time their imagined ending for The Avengers: Age of Ultron would have actually seen the movie ending in the first act.
Find out how The Avengers: Age of Ultron should have ended below!

Now that Jurassic World holds the record for the biggest box office debut of all-time (though it could end up getting trampled by Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December), there’s no doubt that Chris Pratt is one of the biggest movie stars in the world now. However, it’s important to remember that movie stars are just like the rest of us, and Pratt is no exception.
If you need proof that Chris Pratt isn’t just some action adventure hero created in a lab, you can go watch the first few seasons of Parks & Recreation on Netflix. Or if you don’t have that kind of time, you can watch this prank video where Pratt gets the sh*t scared out of him by a dinosaur surprise. Watch these guys prank Chris Pratt after the jump!

With Jurassic World currently in theaters, people just can’t stop talking about Jurassic Park. And since we here at /Film love both the Steven Spielberg-directed action adventure and theme parks, we couldn’t help but call attention to a new world record set on the Jurassic Park River Adventure ride at Universal Studios Hollywood in Los Angeles, California.
Jake & Dave are two dudes who just decided that they wanted to set the world record for most rides in a single day (or as long as the park is open) on Jurassic Park River Adventure, and they chronicled their fun on the splashtastic ride for our enjoyment.

Even though Christopher Nolan‘s sci-fi drama Interstellar ended up being a fairly divisive piece of cinema last year, it’s hard to deny that the film still left an impression on people. And while we can nitpick the story until we’re blue in the face, one element I think we can all take the time to appreciate is the abundance of practical effects used.
Miniatures and large sets were used surprisingly frequently with digital effects only being used to enhance what Nolan physically shot with a camera. And this is even more impressive when you take a look at how practical and visual effects combined to create what Nolan calls the “Tesseract,” which is the spatial plane where Matthew McConaughey can see across time and dimensions.
