Swiss Army Man featurette

Daniel Radcliffe has shown that he’s not afraid to get nude for the sake of art, with his performance in a stage production of Equus back in the late 2000s. However, when it comes to the big screen, he’s not one to flaunt his body around. But in Swiss Army Man, his bare ass proves to be a valuable asset (pun not intended) as the flatulence of his character’s corpse helps Paul Dano survive in the woods. And in addition to his gas serving a purpose, Daniel Radcliffe’s penis turns out to be immensely helpful as well.

A new Swiss Army Man featurette takes a look at some of the practical effects used in the indie hitting more theaters this weekend, and there’s a special focus on Radcliffe’s animatronic penis. This was actually teased in the featurette released earlier this week about the creation of the dummy body used in the movie. Find out all about the magical appendage after the jump. Read More »

War Dogs trailer

Todd Phillips has built his career on bro comedies, from Road Trip to Old School to the Hangover trilogy. His latest film, War Dogs, is in a similar vein, with Jonah Hill and Miles Teller as the buddies whose wacky hijinks spiral out of control until they’re in over their heads, but this time there’s a fascinating real-world twist: it’s all based on a true story.

Based on the Rolling Stone article “Arms and the Dudes” by Guy Lawson, War Dogs centers on two Miami 20somethings who go into the lucrative business of gunrunning. They work their way up the food chain, raking in bigger and bigger sums of money and getting into more and more danger, until they land a $300 million contract from the U.S. government to arm the Afghan military. Watch the new War Dogs trailer below.

stranger things image

The first trailer for Netflix’s Stranger Things sure got our attention. Our own Jacob Hall described it as having a “pinch of Amblin and a cup of Stephen King,” which is a spot-on description of a series that looks like a big throwback. There are images in the trailers, including the latest one, that can’t help but make you think of Amblin, King, and John Carpenter‘s work. All of those potential influences could add up to little more than a trip down nostalgia lane, but the trailers are leading us to believe there’s possibly more to this Netflix series.

Below, watch the Stranger Things trailer.

The Childhood of a Leader

Over the past few years, actor Brady Corbet has been a part of some great films. We saw the actor in Simon KillerForce Majeure (which Fox Searchlight is remaking), Martha Marcy May Marlene, and a few other notable titles. Now he is stepping behind the camera with The Childhood of a Leader.

Corbet’s directorial debut stars Liam Cunningham (Game of Thrones), Bérénice Bejo (The Past), Stacy Martin (Nymphomaniac), and, in a brief appearance, Robert Pattinson (Maps to the Stars). Corbet also managed to get singer-songwriter Scott Walker to compose the score, which is another reason to look forward to the actor’s film.

sully trailer

The last few movies Clint Eastwood made based on real people didn’t turn out so well. J. EdgarThe Jersey Boys, and even his biggest hit as a filmmaker, American Sniper, are strangely cold and clinical movies. The same goes for Changeling and Invictus, but let’s hope that’s not the case with Sully, which comes out later this year and stars Tom Hanks. Below, check out the first Sully trailer to see Tom Hanks’ transformation into Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.

Breaking Bad - Saul Goodman and Walter White

Over its first two seasons, Better Call Saul has pulled in more than a few familiar faces from Breaking Bad. There’s Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks), of course, but also criminal power players like Tuco Salmanca (Raymond Cruz) and even random minor characters like Ken (Kyle Bornheimer). One that’s yet to show up, though? Walter White, whose transformation from Mr. Chips into Scarface put Saul Goodman on that long and rocky road to Omaha.

At this point, it’s unclear whether the future Heisenberg will ever make his way to the prequel series. But if he does, Bryan Cranston says he’d be “all in” for a Better Call Saul Walter White cameo. Provided Vince Gilligan ever calls him up, that is.  Read More »

Swiss Army Man Featurette

The buzzed-about Sundance-selected indie Swiss Army Man got a limited release last weekend, and it will be expanding to more theaters this weekend. The film has infamously been called the “farting corpse” movie because that’s exactly what is prominently featured. Bringing even more attention to the movie is the fact that the corpse in question is played by none other than Harry Potter franchise star Daniel Radcliffe. Now you get to see how his corpse stand-in was created in a new Swiss Army Man featurette that you can watch after the jump. Read More »

Bojack Horseman season 3 trailer

Who would have guessed that the closest spiritual successor to Mad Men would come in the form of a half-hour cartoon about a washed-up sitcom star who just happens to be a horse? Netflix’s Bojack Horseman was a little shaky in the early going, but it hit its funny-sad stride around the middle of its first season, and by its second season was a legitimate contender for one of the best shows on television.

So will Bojack Horseman keep up the good work in season 3, or will it self-destruct just like its equine star? Watch the first Bojack Horseman season 3 trailer and see for yourself. The returning voice cast includes Will ArnettAmy SedarisAlison BrieAaron Paul, and Paul F. TompkinsRead More »
