One of the biggest films of the spring may be the latest sci-fi creator from Neill Blomkamp, Chappie. Starring Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Sigourney Weaver, the film tells the story of an artificially intelligent robot which finds a place in human society. Buzz has been pretty solid on the film, which promises to combine action, drama and intelligence in a way that could only come from the mind of the director of District 9.
When a movie features robots, explosions, rap stars and giant mechs, you can be sure the Poster Posse is going to take notice. The online art collective has been making cool representations for several recent blockbusters: Guardians of the Galaxy, Interstellar, Big Hero 6, etc. and now they’re tackling Chappie. Check out the new Chappie posters below. Read More »

Few objects in recent history have been more visually impactful than Apple’s iPhone. One of the men primarily responsible for that look, and the look of numerous other iconic Apple products, is Jony Ive. Ive is the senior vice president of design at Apple and “one of the two most powerful people in the world’s most valuable company,” according to The New Yorker.
The New Yorker is also where Ive revealed that he and good friend J.J. Abrams have had private discussions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not only that, Abrams took one of Ive’s suggestions about the design of the film and you’ve already seen it. Read more about the Jony Ive Star Wars connection below. Read More »
Fans who want one final chance to see Christopher Nolan‘s latest film on the big screen will get that this weekend. Paramount is releasing the multiple Oscar-nominee Interstellar to select AMC IMAX Theaters on February 21. The screenings will take place at 3 p.m. local time and feature “more than 12 minutes of never-before-seen exclusive behind-the-scenes content.” That’s pretty enticing, and this will be probably your last-ever chance to see the film in IMAX.

Spring was one of the movies that had the most people talking at Fantastic Fest last year, and it was the one I was most bummed to miss. It comes from writer/directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who previously made the intense and unsettling film Resolution, and features Lou Taylor Pucci as an American backpacker who meets a beguiling young woman (Nadia Hilker) in Italy… and then discovers that she has secrets that set her apart from every other girl he’s ever met. This Spring trailer is pretty great, starting off with a pretty normal tone before getting really weird. Check it out below. Read More »
If you’re reading this website, you’re most likely excited for Mad Max: Fury Road. Even if you haven’t been following the franchise since its humble beginnings, those trailers certainly hit your geek radar. The visuals and music director George Miller is working with for this latest film, which stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult, look and sound remarkable.
As we all patiently wait for the release of Mad Max: Fury Road on May 15, the DC Comics imprint Vertigo has collaborated with Miller on a few new releases. There’s a large, hardcover book called Mad Max: Fury Road: Inspired Artists which has art influenced and inspired by the world of Mad Max by 65 famous artists. They’re also doing four character centric prequel comics, which will tell the story of characters played by Hoult, Theron and Max immediately before the film begins.
/Film is excited to exclusively debut the first information and covers for the two of these Mad Max Fury Road books. See them below Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
This new Insurgent trailer — possibly the last before the film opens at the end of March — has a lot of new footage, and condenses the sales pitch for the film down to one minute. (My favorite edits!) We see some of the strife that consumes Tris (Shailene Woodley) and a bunch of big effects shots that dress up the proceedings. We also get shots of a lot of the rest of the cast, including Tris’ beau Theo James, and Miles Teller, Kate Winslet, and Octavia Spencer. Read More »
Two big new pieces of Jurassic World info have been revealed Tuesday. First up, a new viral video reveals the character played by Vincent D’Onofrio. His name is Vic Hoskins and he’s the head of InGen’s Private Security division. They’re a security force, funded by the same company as the Jurassic World park, to develop new methods of defense both for international incidents, and for anything bad that may or may not happen at the park.
Also, a new toy image has been revealed that strongly suggests that there’s more than one hybrid dinosaur in the park. (Just remember that you can’t always trust toys.) See the viral video and find out about this new Jurassic World hybrid dinosaur below. Read More »
