The idea of nostalgia for a record store is probably not even a thing for audiences under a certain age, but to anyone who sought out new and unusual music and all the cultural attachments that came with it, the best Tower Records locations around the world, from Los Angeles to new York, London, and Tokyo, were regular stops.
Colin Hanks documents the history of Tower Records in the documentary All Things Must Pass, and he’s scored a great lineup of interviews to bring that history to life. Tower was the place a bunch of my weirdo friends found jobs in the ’80s and ’90s, just as Dave Grohl says; it was the place to find Japanese imports of weird jazz records, supporting Elton John‘s assertion; it was, as others in the film will tell you, a place where the employees usually knew their stuff.
The All Things Must Pass trailer is a good introduction to the film; check it out below. Read More »

The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.
… Or so she thought. This is still Homeland we’re talking about, after all. It’s not long before Carrie gets sucked back into a web of international intrigue involving shady government organizations, hackers, black-ops agents, and a rather pissed off Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin). Watch the Homeland Season 5 trailer after the jump. Read More »
As of now, Jurassic World is the biggest movie of the year. That might change this winter once Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, but for now Universal Pictures is having a huge year at the box office, so we’ll let the studio bask in that glory for awhile.
This fall, fans will be able to bring home the Indominus Rex when the movie hits Blu-Ray and DVD on October 20. (Or you can get it on Digital HD a bit earlier on October 1st.) Universal is teasing all the special features that will be available on the home video release, showing the making of Jurassic World. There’s a collection of eight short featurettes you can watch below! Read More »
Thanks to the first trailer, people knew a little bit about Rock the Kasbah earlier this year. Then Bill Murray showed up to Comic Con to promote the Barry Levinson movie. After the actor walked around Hall H doing karaoke before the panel, and spent a bunch of time roaming the aisles afterwards to shake hands and pose for pics with fans, the film’s profile got a nice bump.
Now here’s a new Rock the Kasbah trailer, and it’s all about Murray’s comic energy and the big supporting cast, which includes Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel, Danny McBride, Scott Caan, and Bruce Willis. Have a look below. Read More »
There are plenty of people who are already sold on The Martian, the latest sci-fi drama from Ridley Scott. It’s one of our 30 Movies to Be Excited for Before the End of 2015, and the most recent trailer really showed how good it looks.
But 20th Century Fox still has a little over a month to go before the film hits theaters, and they’re continuing their impressive viral marketing campaign with yet another cool video focusing on the crew of the Ares 3, another manned mission to the surface of Mars. This time, famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson examines the upcoming mission in the style of the recent Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey series.

Brad Bird‘s first feature The Iron Giant didn’t make a big splash upon its release in 1999. Warner Bros. didn’t seem to know how to market the film, and with the internet publicity machine only in its first formative stage, some of the tools that can help raise awareness of a film in 2015 were not yet in place.
The Iron Giant resonated with nearly everyone who did see the film, at least, and over the years it has been celebrated as a new classic in hand-drawn animation and science fiction. The good news is that Warner Bros. is planning a brief new theatrical release for a version of the film called The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, with a bit of new footage. There’s a new Iron Giant trailer to advertise the September release, which you can watch below. Read More »
Production on Captain America: Civil War just wrapped over the weekend, and while some footage from the film was recently shown at D23 Expo, I wouldn’t count on the first official trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving until later this year, maybe with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In the meantime, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, including word on which superheroes align themselves with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when they end up at odds. The aforementioned footage from D23 essentially confirmed those rumors, but in case you needed more substantial evidence, some Captain America Civil War promo art has surfaced showing each of the teams, but beware of spoilers below.

Here’s a bit of new Star Wars: The Force Awakens footage, and despite being brief in length there’s a powerful sight here. Finn, played by John Boyega, ignites his lightsaber as he stands in what appears to be the same forest in which we’ve seen Kylo Ren readying for battle. There’s a bit of additional footage in this brief preview, too; watch below. Read More »
