Go into any kids store and you don’t see the main character of Despicable Me on t-shirts. You see his minions. So it was not a surprise when Universal announced a few years back that those crazy yellow guys would get their own movie.
Fast forward to today and the first Minions trailer is here. The film, directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, features the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and doesn’t open until July 10, 2015. So, it’s a little surprising but you can already watch the Minions trailer and see some new images below. Read More »

Earlier this year, news broke that The Incredibles and Ratatouille were getting 3D post-conversions. The two Brad Bird-directed Oscar-winners are already on Blu-ray, but the rumor was that these conversions could be for upgraded 3D Blu-ray discs. Soon after that rumor landed, a 3D version of Ratatouille hit shelves overseas. Nothing happened with The Incredibles, however. Now, a new rumor says that, unlike Ratatouille, The Incredibles 3D conversion could be going to the big screen. Read More »
We’re pretty familiar with the sight of good actors jumping and rolling about in mo-cap suits while doing performance capture work for effects-based films. We’re especially familiar with that image when it comes to Peter Jackson‘s Middle-Earth movies. And yet there’s something special about seeing Benedict Cumberbatch, whose on-screen presence radiates control and composure, crawling on his belly and fire-breathing dialogue for the worm Smaug in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. A few short featurettes about the creation of the dragon, and the Smaug mo-cap work, have gone online. They’re probably more fun than at least half the other stuff you could be watching. Check out a few below. Read More »

Jean-Luc Godard releases his thirty-ninth film this year, and his first in 3D. The film, Goodbye to Language, is an experimental effort that takes an approach to 3D that has been called radical and even game-changing. (Though we probably won’t see anyone using 3D in this manner for a conventional film any time soon.) The film premiered at Cannes, where it shared the Jury Prize with Xavier Dolan’s film Mommy; now you can see the first Goodbye to Language trailer from US distributor Kino Lorber.
Héloise Godet, Jessica Erickson, Kamel Abdeli, Richard Chevallier, Alexandre Païta and Zoé Bruneau all star in a film that appears to be about the structure of film itself. This isn’t a typical narrative, and it appears to be one that goes even further out than some of Godard’s recent work. I can’t wait to see it. This trailer seems like a pale representation, but we’ll take it for now. Read More »
