In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 things are looking like they’re going from bad to worse for Katniss. The character played by Jennifer Lawrence endured a second round of Games in the last film, but now she has to face the wrath of rulers in The Capitol who won’t stand for even a spark of rebellion to float through the grey haze they call society. And so preventative action has been taken, and in this new Mockingjay Part 1 teaser Katniss is forced to confront it.
Compared to the first trailer this is far more somber, and uses almost entirely new footage. Watch after the jump. Read More »

We’re inching closer and closer to seeing Interstellar. Christopher Nolan‘s latest film, about a space journey undertaken to save the Earth, hits theaters with film-projection capabilities on November 5 and all the others November 7. I think most of us have gotten to the point where we’ve gone dark on the movie, preferring to experience the whole thing in the theater. And with a Christopher Nolan movie, that’s pretty easy. There really isn’t a lot of information or images out there.
However, some new stuff from both columns A and B have hit the net today. On the information side, we’ve learned that the near-three-hour film has more than an hour of IMAX footage. That’s a jump up from Nolan’s last film, The Dark Knight Rises. On the image side, eight new images have been released thanks to an Entertainment Weekly cover story. Read more about the Interstellar IMAX footage and check out the new images and commercials below. Read More »
In Dying of the Light Nicolas Cage plays an intelligence agent who wants to do something worth remembering. Based on the Dying of the Light trailer, Nic Cage may not achieve the same thing in this movie.
We’ve followed the film’s strange history for a while: scripted by Paul Schrader, Dying of the Light was originally going to be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, with Harrison Ford in the lead. But Ford and Refn had creative differences and that version fell apart. Eventually Schrader directed the film with Cage starring and Refn acting as exec producer. But there has been conflict between Schrader and the film’s primary producers, resulting in a final edit that does not involve the director. Check out the trailer below to see a representation of what will hit theaters in December. Read More »
In David Fincher‘s big screen adaptation of Gone Girl, Rosamund Pike plays Amy Dunne, a wife who goes mysteriously missing leaving her husband (Ben Affleck) in the public spotlight. The character of Dunne has always lived in the shadow of Amazing Amy, a series of children’s books written by her parents very loosely based on her childhood. Well it looks like the Amazing Amy books are about to be released as a collection, The Complete Amazing Amy, and a preview has been released digitally. Take a quick preview of The Complete Amazing Amy, after the jump.

It’s hard to overstate the impact of The Blair Witch Project. These days, movies like it are a dime a dozen. Online viral marketing? Pretty passé. But fifteen years ago, a found footage movie marketed primarily through the Internet was not only radical, it was revolutionary. On a budget of just $25,000, the film grossed $250 million worldwide, making it the most profitable film in the history of cinema.
For those of us who were lucky enough to be a part of it, the impact of Daniel Myrick and Eduardo Sánchez‘s film is a door into our own pasts. For those who may not have been there — who didn’t experience lining up for screenings and the confusion over what was real and what wasn’t — the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has created a short little documentary about how The Blair Witch Project changed movies forever.
Below, watch a video about The Blair Witch Project history and read a first hand account of what it was like on the ground floor. Read More »
The first Jurassic World poster is here.
Director Colin Trevorrow tweeted the image, which is very reminiscent of the poster for the original Steven Spielberg film. It’s just the logo, big and imposing, daring fans to enter. This time though, the tagline is “The Park is Open.” Jurassic World itself opens June 12. Check out the Jurassic World poster below. Read More »
We know the history of Steven Spielberg‘s film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and we even know some of the fine details. For example, we’ve seen the early alien designs created by Rick Baker for the aborted project Night Skies. It’s obvious that some of those designs made their way to the stream of concepts that influenced ET when that film was born in the wake of Night Skies being scrapped.
Now we’ve got some rarely seen early ET concept art from Ed Verreaux, who worked with Spielberg as production illustrator starting on Raiders of the Lost Ark. The art by Verreaux shows more of the process of Night Skies alien designs being mutated into the friendly guy we know and love at the center of ET. Read More »

Thought billionaire playboys made for unlikely vigilantes? You haven’t met Miss Meadows, the heroine of Karen Leigh Hopkins‘ offbeat indie thriller of the same title. Played by Katie Holmes, this prim and proper elementary school looks so sugar-sweet, bluebirds literally follow her around while she tap-dances down the street. But what her community doesn’t know is that when they’re not looking, she moonlights as a pistol-packing avenger.
This is obviously a big problem for the bad guys in her town but it also proves a headache for local law enforcement, represented by James Badge Dale. Especially once he starts falling for her. Hit the jump to see the new Miss Meadows trailer.
