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 »

INSIDE OUT

Most Pixar movies are emotional experiences, in that they inspire what the kids used to call “all the feels.” But their next film Inside Out is an emotional experience in a more literal sense, as it delves into the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Living within are five primary emotions that drive her: Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader), and Anger (Lewis Black). Get to know all of them as Pixar begins to release new Inside Out character posters. (We’ll update this post as more posters arrive.)  Read More »

project almanac trailer

We’ve been talking about Dean Israelite‘s Project Almanac for what seems like forever. Jumping back in time, the idea first got picked up by Michael Bay‘s Platinum Dunes in 2012. Cameras then started rolling Summer 2013 aimed at a February 2014 release date. In that time, the title changed to Welcome to Yesterday. However the distributor, Paramount, decided to hold the film back once that date got close. It was retitled Project Almanac and it had a pretty successful, buzzy screening at Comic-Con.

Which brings us to the present. A second first trailer for Project Almanac has been released with the film set to hit theaters January 30. In it you’ll see what a group of teenagers might do if they found out how to time travel in their garage. Watch the Project Almanac Trailer below. Read More »
