mondocon 2016 posters the graduate

We’re days away from MondoCon 2016, the annual celebration pop culture art organized by the good folks at Mondo, and previews from this year’s show have already been invading the internet. We’ve played our part, having debuted Kevin Tong’s new poster inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Ran last week and interviewed artist Todd Slater (and showed off his new The Secret of NIMH print) earlier today. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, as other stunning posters have already made their way online in advance of the show. Let’s run through ’em.

Resident Evil The Final Chapter Trailer - Milla Jovovich

Much like the long life of the Fast and Furious franchise, it’s hard to believe that early next year we’ll be getting the sixth film in the Resident Evil franchise. While the film series based on the video games of the same name hasn’t really found the same massive audience after starting back in 2002, there are still plenty of fans eager to see how it all ends.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter appears to be pulling out all the stops this time as a new international trailer shows even more absolutely batshit insane action sequences featuring hordes of zombies, giant winged-creatures, and villainous corporate executives talking menacingly in board rooms at the Umbrella Corporation headquarters. It’s exactly what you would expect from director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s latest contribution to the franchise.

death race 2050 trailer

The mere existence of Death Race 2050 is going to confuse a few people and I’d be lying if I said that didn’t delight me just a little bit. This is the direct sequel to producer Roger Corman‘s schlocky 1975 film Death Race 2000, ignoring Paul W.S. Anderson’s 2008 remake Death Race and its two direct-to-video sequels, Death Race 2 and Death Race 3: Inferno. Anyone who only knows this series from the more grim and serious-minded (but not exactly serious) remake series may get whiplash from the new Death Race 2050 trailer, which harkens back to the tone of the original movie in a big way.

Wolverine 3 title Logan poster

Wolverine may be an ageless mutant, but Hugh Jackman is not, and as a result, we’ve watched him grow older over his past 16+ years on the big screen. But Logan will be the first movie where Wolverine really gets to show his age. James Mangold has revealed the first look at Jackman’s Old Man Logan in the movie, just ahead of the first trailer’s premiere tomorrow. Get your Old Man Logan first look — and check out a teaser for the trailer — below the jump.   Read More »

silence andrew garfield

After flying under the radar and missing the 2016 film festival scene altogether, Martin Scorsese‘s Silence finally announced a release date a few weeks ago. As expected, the latest film from one of our greatest living filmmakers has been positioned as an Oscar contender, hitting theaters in limited release on December 23, 2016. That news followed stories about the film’s supposed 195 minute running time. And that news followed a handful of stills showing off actors like Andrew Garfield and Liam Neeson looking sad and desperate. But beyond that, the film has truly lived up to its title.

Still, the mere existence of a new Scorsese movie was enough to send Silence to the top of our most anticipated movies of the Fall list, so surely a new still from the film, featuring our first look at Adam Driver, qualifies as noteworthy movie news.

rey closeup lightsaber battle force awakens reshoots

Now that Star Wars: the Force Awakens is getting released on 3D Blu-ray, director JJ Abrams is being more open about the making of the film. Here we get two new clips from The Force Awakens audio commentary, both of which seem to suggest that reshooting Star Wars scenes might result in a better film (you hear that Rogue One cynics?).

In one of the clips, the writer/director reveals the two shots in the Rey/Kylo Ren lightsaber battle that were added after the fact — one of which was a suggestion of filmmaker Ava Duvernay (Selma) and the other is one of my favorite shots in the film. The second audio commentary clip features Abrams talking about how Rey and Finn’s relationship was dramatically changed after Harrison Ford’s on-set injury allowed him to go back and do Force Awakens reshoots.

transformers 5 video

Now that we’re five chapters deep into the Transformers series, it’s safe to say that just about everyone on the planet has an opinion on these movies. And while I’ve never been the biggest fan of what Michael Bay has done with these characters, I have to admire his audaciousness as a filmmaker. There are many, many things you can say about Bay’s filmography, but anyone who calls him lazy or derivative hasn’t been paying attention. Like him or not, he’s really one of a kind and his movies are made with a voice that is all his own.

And that’s why I’ve been digging the behind-the-scenes videos that have been trickling out of Transformers: The Last Knight, showcasing Bay in his element: commanding large armies of artists and technicians as part of a grand plan to orchestrate cinematic mayhem. The latest trio of videos are more of the same in the best possible way.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Trailer - Star-Lord

Well, that didn’t take long. Following the release of the first Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser poster this morning, the first teaser trailer has made its way online. It takes a cue from the first teaser trailer for the first installment of the cosmic comic franchise and brings back “Hooked on a Feeling” for the soundtrack.

However, the difference this time is that the teaser trailer has the confidence of a franchise that has already proven itself. Watch the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer after the jump. Read More »

Always Shine trailer

Reconnecting with old friends can be a tricky proposition even under the best of circumstances, but the best frenemies at the heart of Always Shine aren’t in the best of circumstances. Mackenzie Davis and Caitlin FitzGerald lead Sophia Takal‘s psychological thriller as a pair of longtime pals who head up to Big Sur together in an effort to repair their bond. But the trip quickly turns toxic as the women are beset by jealousy and unhappiness, and begin to turn on each other.

Always Shine earned high praise at its Tribeca Film Festival world premiere, with Davis even scooped up a Best Actress award for her work. If you’ve ever watched Halt and Catch Fire or Masters of Sex and wished Davis and FitzGerald, respectively, had even more to do, this definitely looks like a movie worth checking out. Watch the Always Shine trailer below.  Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Teaser Poster

Just recently, the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was classified with a running time of 1 minute and 29 seconds. With Doctor Strange set to hit international markets next week, we’re likely to get this teaser trailer either later this week or early next week. But in the meantime, the first Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser poster has arrived.

Unlike the polished posters we’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios movies, this particular teaser poster looks more like an album cover straight out of the 1980s, and it has a rather cocky tagline as well. Check out the poster after the jump. Read More »
