We usually put mash-up trailers in our link blog round-up Page 2, but I think this one is worth a breakout because it combines the two best movies of 2014 (so far, at least in my opinion), Matt Reeves’ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Richard Linklater’s Boyhood. Nelson Carvajal has edited the two movies into a trailer titled “Apehood” (which also includes footage from Rise of the Planet of the Apes). Watch the trailer now embedded after the jump. Both Dawn and Boyhood are in theaters now, make time to see both of these films on the big screen.

The way I see it, you have three options. 1. Spend tens of thousands of dollars a year on film school. 2. Read a book. Or 3, watch this nine-minute YouTube video. Yeah, I’d pick number 3 too.
The fine folks at CineFix have put together a video called The History of Hollywood in Under 10 Minutes. Which is great, except it teaches you about much more than just Hollywood and the total runtime is 8:52. And while I don’t advocate this being your only source of knowledge on the topic of film history (I’m obliged to say that because of my own expensive film education) it’s a super-fun watch nonetheless. Check it out below. Read More »

Briefly: The latest Sacha Baron Cohen movie has a talented new addition, as his comedy Grimsby has just recruited Penelope Cruz.
Unlike some of Baron Cohen’s other films, Grimsby is a scripted film about a soccer hooligan whose brother is a secret agent. He co-wrote the script and Louis Leterrier (Now You See Me) is directing. Baron Cohen plays the hooligan, obviously, and Mark Strong is his brother. Also in the cast: Ian McShane, Rebel Wilson and Gabourey Sidibe.
The Wrap reported the news of Cruz’s likely involvement. She’s currently in talks. As for her role, they say it’s most likely a supporting role as a “Femme fatale.”
Grimsby is scheduled for release July 31, 2015. It’s now filming.

Briefly: AMC has already released a few briefs teases from the set of The Walking Dead season 5 but now they’ve gone one step further. Almost like you’re visiting the set yourself, they’ve premiered a short scene from the new season. Emphasis on the “short,” in that it’s 30 seconds and feels like an assembly made very quickly by an editor to show the actors what they just shot. But still, it’s The Walking Dead and there are zombies a-plenty.
