American heist trailer

Joke all you want about Hayden Christensen‘s performances in the Star Wars prequels, but the guy has some chops. Sure, those two films weren’t great, but around the same time he crushed Life as a House and Shattered Glass, two highly underrated films. Since then he hasn’t exactly stayed in the spotlight, choosing to only do movies every few years. In part because of good will generated by those two indie roles, it’s always great to see him.

His latest role is in American Heist, where Christensen plays the brother of Oscar-winner Adrien Brody. Brody plays a hardened criminal who coaxes his rehabilitated brother (Christensen) to do one more big job. It’s a familiar set up to be sure, but with co-stars Jordana Brewster and Akon, there’s a distinct Fast and Furious vibe to this one. Check out the American Heist trailer below. Read More »

Age of Adaline

You’d think eternal youth and immortality would be gifts, but in TV and movies it’s as often as not a curse. Vampires and mutants alike angst over the unfairness of having to remain young and beautiful while the world spins on. And in The Age of Adaline, Blake Lively joins the pity party.

The Gossip Girl alum plays a 27-year-old woman rendered ageless thanks to a freak accident in the 1930s. As her loved ones start to grow old and die off, she becomes withdrawn — until a handsome man (Michiel Huisman, a.k.a. Daario Naharis v2.0 from Game of Thrones) draws her out of her shell. Ellen Burstyn and Harrison Ford also star. Watch the Age of Adaline trailer after the jump.

Pitch Perfect 2 Poster header

Look, there are some great sequels coming out in 2015: Star Wars, The Avengers, Jurassic Park, The Terminator… the list goes on and on. But none of those will have synchronized dancing, a capella covers of pop songs, or Anna Kendrick. Those elements put the sequel to Pitch Perfect right up there on my must-see list.

Pitch Perfect 2, directed by Elizabeth Banks, opens May 15. The first trailer will be out Thursday, after it debuts at nationwide Pitch Perfect Sing-a-Long screenings Wednesday. In anticipation, a great teaser poster has been revealed. Check out the Pitch Perfect 2 poster below. Read More »

Cinderella

Disney’s wave of live-action fairy tales continues next spring with Kenneth Branagh‘s Cinderella. Unlike Maleficent or Oz The Great and Powerful, however, Cinderella doesn’t come at the tale from a different character’s perspective. Instead, it looks like a pretty straightforward retelling of the classic story.

Lily James plays young Ella, Cate Blanchett her evil stepmother, Helena Bonham Carter her fairy godmother, and Richard Madden the handsome prince. Watch the first Cinderella trailer after the jump.

Xul1349 - Bicycle Thief header

In the limited edition poster game, you pretty much know the drill. You’re going to get really nice art for the same few dozen movies. It just so happens that movies like Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Jaws, etc. are the ones that most influenced the current crop of professional artists. In fact, it’s pretty rare that you get a piece of art for a movie that was made before 1975, let alone something foreign.

Enter FAMP Art, a new limited edition art company who is hoping to create works not from the regular hit films. They’re focusing only on the best in independent and foreign cinema. They checked both boxes with their first poster for City of God and next week, they’ll release a regular and variant for Vittorio De Sica‘s 1948 masterpiece, The Bicycle Thief. Below, we exclusively reveal both Bicycle Thief posters and tell you how you can get one. Read More »

_N8A9026.NEF

After perfecting her plain-girl act in Arrested Development, Mae Whitman (her?) is trying to shake it off in The Duff. She plays Bianca, a high school senior who’s dismayed to realize she’s considered the DUFF — Designated Ugly Fat Friend — to her prettier pals. In an effort to reinvent herself, she enlists the help of handsome popular jock Wesley (Robbie Amell).

It all sounds pretty silly, starting with the notion that Whitman is ugly and fat. But this is movie-land, where Rachel Leigh Cook was once considered freakishly repulsive because she dared wear overalls and glasses. And where we’re supposed to believe Amell, a 26-year-old former male model, is a typical teenager. Hit the jump to watch The Duff trailer.

Nicolas Francoeur Neverending Story

We’ve officially got to the frightening stage of remakes. This is the stage where Hollywood has remade almost every single movie reasonable worth remaking, and even some that weren’t. Now they’re onto the classics. How long will it really be before films like Psycho or Halloween get remade? Oh, wait.

On that list of films that should never be remade, but may one day is The Neverending Story. The 1984 film directed by Wolfgang Petersen follows a young boy who reads a fantasy book and ends up getting involved in the story. It spawned a few sequels, and holds a special place in the heart of many filmgoers because – for some – it was one of their earliest exposures to the world of fantasy, especially seen through the eyes of a young protagonist.

Will The Neverending Story ever get remade? Who knows. But one artist has created some concept art in case it does and it’s pretty impressive. Read More »

Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher

Foxcatcher is getting a lot of attention for its tone, its performances, and Steve Carell’s nose. But that title proved to be irresistable for one editor, and now we can show you something that was probably inevitable. Fantastic Mr. Foxcatcher is exactly what you think it might be: a mash-up of the trailers for Foxcatcher and Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox. Specifically, it uses the audio from the new film with the images of Anderson’s movie. Some parts work better than others, but the bits that do work are, well, fantastic. Read More »
