Warcraft trailer

Director Duncan Jones finished shooting Warcraft almost a year ago. Production wrapped in May of 2014 but the film is not scheduled for release until March 11, 2016. In the meantime, the director and his team are working hard not only on post-production, which includes a lot of performance capture and computer graphics, but marketing. How do you sell the masses on a super-geeky property based on a popular video game which still remains a niche property as far as the mainstream is concerned?

One idea Jones had was to do two separate Warcraft trailers for two of the major factions in the action fantasy adaptation: one for the Horde and one for the Alliance. Whether or not that’ll happen, or when it’ll happen, we don’t yet know. But below, read Jones discuss Warcraft’s marketing and offer an update on the film. Read More »

How To Train Your Dragon 2

One of the casualties, and maybe even causes of the recent dissent at DreamWorks Animation is the hugely popular How To Train Your Dragon franchise. The second film was expected by many to be among the highest grossing films of the year. Despite the film being a worthy follow-up to the first movie, however, it disappointed financially. It was one of many recent disappointments for the studio, which in turn was forced to make some huge cutbacks. The third film was delayed one year, then pushed back another.

So the original 2016 release date has become a 2018 release date, which is just fine for writer and director Dean DeBlois. That gives him more time to get everything right with How to Train Your Dragon 3. In a new interview, he hinted at the structure of the film, some character stuff, once again discussed the ending and offered an update on the script. Read about the How to Train Your Dragon 3 plot and more below. Read More »

Lost River

Ryan Gosling is an extremely successful movie star, or at least he was as of 2013. He hasn’t been seen onscreen in the past year because in addition to being a movie star, he also wants to be a director. He makes his feature filmmaking debut with Lost River, a dreamy fantasy-thriller about a teenage boy (Iain De Casestecker) in an abandoned city.

Christina Hendricks plays the kid’s beleaguered mother and Saoirse Ronan his oddball love interest. Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, and Ben Mendelsohn also star. Watch the Lost River trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 5 - Tyrion screengrab

Fans willing to brave the cold and get to the theater last night got to see the very first Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer in IMAX. The rest of us will have to settle for watching it on YouTube today. Which isn’t so bad, all things considered.

The two-minute promo is positively packed with footage from the new season, and just about every fan-favorite character gets a moment. (Well, the ones who survived Season 4, anyway.) Intriguingly, they also suggest the show will continue to stray even further from George R.R. Martin‘s original novels. Watch the first Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer after the jump.

UPDATE: An official version of the Season 5 trailer has just been posted; check it out below. Read More »

Jupiter Ascending

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 »
