The fact there’s a Lego Jurassic World video game coming out pretty exciting. What’s even more exciting is it’ll tell a story that spans all four Jurassic Park movies. Out this June, the Lego Jurassic World game just released a new trailer that shows iconic scenes from the original films reimagined in that trademark Lego way. You’ll hear the actual voices of Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, but unfortunately get no real sense of what to expect in terms of the fourth movie, Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World.
Below, see the Lego Jurassic World trailer as well as the cover and a few still images. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we have to endure the slings and arrows of video gamers and their comprehensive use of the English language, get the arm butter out for Dolph Lundgren in a soon-to-be-direct-to-DVD classic, talk to the master of modern pizza making, revisit Vietnam in the backyard, and take a moment to talk to comedians about the nature of comedy.

Misery Loves Comedy is one of the films I wish I could have seen at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. It was presented as a special screening, slotted at a very inconvenient time all the way on the top of Main Street at the Egyptian. Thankfully, actor/comedian Kevin Pollak‘s documentary film was sold at Sundance to Tribeca Film, which will allow all of us to see it when it is released on iTunes on April 14th and in limited theaters on April 24th 2015. The documentary features over 60 famous funny people “featured in this hilarious twist on the age-old truth: misery loves company.” Hit the jump to watch the Misery Loves Comedy trailer, and leave your thoughts int he comments below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
There’s a Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana Bad Robot movie that you haven’t seen yet. That’s pretty cool, right? Plus, the movie is great to boot. I’m talking of a film called Infinitely Polar Bear, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the film soon after its Sundance debut (which is now over a year ago) but we haven’t heard anything about it since.
Now, finally, a trailer is out for the film. It’s getting released internationally in March and the US will get it on June 19. Check out the first Infinitely Polar Bear trailer below.
UPDATE – A different US trailer, including a quote from yours truly, is now online. Read More »

Vampires — they’re just like us! The first Hotel Transylvania demonstrated that raising a teenager is just as challenging for bloodsuckers as it is for the rest of us, and now the Hotel Transylvania 2 trailer reveals that vampires have their own version of “sink or swim.” Only instead of tossing someone into the deep end so they’ll learn to swim, it involves throwing a toddler off a tower so he’ll learn to fly.
Watch the Hotel Transylvania 2 trailer after the jump.

The passing of pioneering documentary Albert Maysles isn’t a good way to bring attention to his final film, but we’re happy knowing that we get to see one last effort from he master filmmaker. Iris is a doc nominally about Iris Apfel, the 94-year old designer and fashion icon, with the film primarily focused on the Met exhibition that celebrated her career in 2006. But the film is truly about time and art, and even filmmaking, as Iris talks to Maysles as he films her, influencing the progression of the documentary process. See the Iris trailer below.

Based on the cast list, you’d probably think Ross Katz‘s Adult Beginners was a broad comedy. The lead is Nick Kroll of Kroll Show and The League fame; co-stars include SNL‘s Bobby Moynihan, Community‘s Joel McHale, 30 Rock‘s Jane Krakowski, and comedians Mike Birbiglia and Jason Mantzoukas.
But while the Adult Beginners has some laughs, it’s really more of a gentle dramedy. Kroll plays an entrepreneur whose career is in tatters. In an effort to rebuild his life, he moves in with his sister (Rose Byrne), her husband (Bobby Cannavale), and their young son. Watch the Adult Beginners trailer after the jump. Read More »
