Baz Luhrmann Chanel

Baz Luhrmann‘s razzle-dazzle style isn’t for everyone, and it doesn’t work for every story. But it’s just perfect for high-end perfume ads, which are all about glam and glitz.

This Chanel No. 5 spot stars Gisele Bündchen and Michiel Huisman (of Treme / Orphan Black / Game of Thrones fame) as star-crossed lovers who variously enjoy surfing (her) and Sam Smith-ified Grease covers (him). Hit the jump to see the sumptuous new Baz Luhrmann perfume ad.

Edgar Wright Pharrell Williams

Good news: Edgar Wright‘s latest movie is here. Bad news: it’s only five minutes long.

Wright, the director of Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, just directed a music video for a Pharrell Williams song called ‘Gust of Wind.’ Daft Punk cameos – in a way – and it’s filled with lots of interesting and beautiful visuals. It’s the first music video Wright has directed since 2005. Watch Wright’s video for ‘Gust of Wind’ by Pharrell Williams below. Read More »

dredd dark judges

The line between “official” and “unofficial” gets weird with this announcement of an online Judge Dredd series, called Dark Judges, which seems to be meant as something between a sequel to the 2012 film and a “thank you” to passionate Dredd fans. Producer Adi Shankar helped make Dredd as a passion project. Now he is the one backing the online series. Many details about the series remain mysterious; what we know about the Dredd Dark Judges series is below. Read More »

Robert Downey Jr in The Avengers

Officially, Robert Downey Jr. is only contacted to play Iron Man one more time. He’s already completed next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and then he’ll shoot The Avengers 3, whenever that ends up happening. However, the proposition of an Iron Man 4 is something the actor has been very coy about. He’s said things that hint he won’t return, then softened those statements considerably. With his latest film, The Judge, hitting theaters soon, Downey is once again under fire about his iconic role as Tony Stark and a new quote definitely makes it sound like he’ll return.

And even if he doesn’t, an excellent short film has made its way online that uses his likeness for a whole different kind of Iron Man transition. It’s really cool. Below, hear the new Iron Man 4 Robert Downey Jr quote and see him in a new short film. Read More »

Twilight

Given that the five Twilight movies raked in a collective $3.5 billion (adjusted for inflation) over five years, it was only a matter of time before Lionsgate tried to bring the franchise back from the dead. What’s surprising is how they’re doing it.
