passengers clip

Sony has released a couple new bits of marketing for next month’s other big space movie, Morten Tyldum‘s Passengers. The sci-fi romance stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt as two people who wake up 90 years early on an interstellar journey. They kill some time by falling madly in love with one another (because even in the future, human beings are powerless to resist the charms of Jennifer Lawrence or Chris Pratt) before realizing they’re screwed because their spaceship is about to fall apart.

But that disaster comes a bit later, it seems. The new Passengers clip and the new Passengers music video (with music by Imagine Dragons) show the pair in happier times, as they dive headfirst into their whirlwind romance. Click on through to check ’em out. Read More »

Moana Clip - You're Welcome

If you didn’t catch Moana over the holiday weekend, you’re missing out on one of the best movies Walt Disney Animation has ever made. It’s an outstanding adventure full of gorgeous animation, a powerful story about identity with a strong female character at its center who doesn’t need romance to have a complete story.

But one of the best elements of Moana is the soundtrack of original songs crafted by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer Mark Mancina and South Pacific fusion musician Opetaia Foa’i. And if you need any more convincing to see Moana, or you just want to watch one of the most fun musical numbers from the movie again and again, we have good news. The entire musical sequence where Dwayne Johnson‘s demigod character Maui sings the song “You’re Welcome,” has been made available to watch online.

rogue one featurette

In the months leading up to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, it feels like we’ve talked about every character in the movie except Diego Luna‘s Captain Cassian Andor, whose role appears to be “straight-laced soldier who has to wrangle together all of those strange rebel misfits.” Since I like Luna quite a bit and am eagerly awaiting to see him contribute to the Star Wars universe, this new featurette focusing on his experiences on the set of the film feels like it arrived at the just the right time.

westworld season finale trailer

Earlier this season, Westworld introduced the bicameral mind into its mythology, a real-world theory that suggests human consciousness evolved because the human brain would have conversations with itself, possibly leading early humans to believe they were communicating with a higher power. In ways both fascinating and creepy, Westworld took this concept and made it literal. Now, the season finale is right around the corner and it’s titled “The Bicameral Mind.” Yeah, it certainly sounds like something fairly huge is set to go down.

La La Land Featurette

Decades ago, musicals were all the rage in Hollywood.

Now Whiplash director Damien Chazelle is bringing back that classic style in the modern musical La La Land starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, and a new featurette goes behind the scenes to show how they’re making it happen.

The Belko Experiment Teaser

While many are looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, before that we’ll get a chance to see another film that director James Gunn worked on as a writer before getting behind the camera of the Marvel Studios sequel.

The Belko Experiment is scripted by James Gunn but directed by Wolf Creek helmer Greg McLean, and it takes the intensity of The Hunger Games or Battle Royale and throws it into an every day office. Sure, you may have fantasized about unleashing fury on one of your co-workers after they took the last donut, but given the opportunity, would you actually be able to kill them? That’s the dilemma that will be faced by the employees in The Belko Experiment teaser that just debuted. Read More »

Beauty and the Beast Photo

Fans of the 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast got quite a glimpse at the live-action remake coming from Disney in the spring thanks to the new trailer that was unveiled not too long ago. It looks very loyal to Disney’s first attempt at telling the tale as old as time, but advanced visual effects gives director Bill Condon an opportunity to tell the story in a new way, and it looks positively fantastic.

Now we get another little glimpse at the movie in the form of a new photo that finally gives us a shot of Luke Evans as Gaston attempting to catch the eye of Emma Watson as Belle. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

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 Donnie Darko gets a 4K re-release, the new Captain Kirk narrates a story of some overly ambitious high schoolers, Fat Mike learns a thing a two about running a music label because he’s seen a thing or two, we try and earn a few bitcoins, and North Korea lets in an industrial band to play a few tunes for the people.  Read More »
