There’s a film with Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto, and Richard Roxburgh that US audiences haven’t had a chance to see yet. The Turning is an Australian anthology film that adapts a set of short stories by Tim Winton, with more than a dozen directors, including Mia Wasikowska and Anthony Lucas (The Mysterious Geographic Explorations of Jasper Morello), David Wenham (300: Rise of an Empire) and Justin Kurzel (Assassin’s Creed). But the anthology structure and long running time mean that has mostly been on the festival circuit for a while. Check out a trailer for The Turning below. Read More »

The Thunderbirds TV series that captured imaginations in the ’60s is about to get a new revival. The 50th Anniversary of the original show will be celebrated in part with a new series from ITV called Thunderbirds Are Go!, with effects from WETA. A new Thunderbirds teaser is now available, and though it doesn’t show off very much, it might be enough for fans who have been excited about the new show.
Update: Previously, we had seen only an image of the backs of the new Thunderbirds team design. Now we’ve got the reverse of that shot, showing off the faces of the puppet-based CG designs. Check it out in full below.

The appeal of seeing Game of Thrones on an IMAX screen should be pretty obvious, but it takes a lot to convince people to brave the January cold. So here’s one more reason to shell out for Game of Thrones in IMAX: the theater company has just revealed two cool commemorative Game of Thrones IMAX posters by artist Robert Ball, to be distributed for free at participating locations.

Last week, Latino Review ran an article about next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuting with Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, since you read /Film, you already knew that because we broke that news a month prior. What our friends at Latino Review mentioned that we didn’t though was the trailer would include footage of Han, Luke, Leia and Chewbacca. That was news to us.
You see, the source who tipped us off to the new trailer told us something almost totally different. They said the original trilogy characters would not be featured in the marketing because Lucasfilm wants to keep their specific roles as secret as possible. Plus, with so many new characters, worlds, ships, etc. to sell people on, they don’t want to show too much familiar stuff. They want it to be Star Wars, but a new Star Wars, like the first teaser trailer. Familiar yet different.
Our source never said we wouldn’t see the characters at all. It was just strongly implied they would be in the background. Could this strategy, one we heard about in late November, have changed? Could Disney have decided to put the original trilogy characters in the marketing? Like most things, the truth will most likely be found in the middle. Read More »
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 we grow up, get drunk, get Shakespeare’d, get a life, and wonder what hides in the minds and hearts of office a-holes.

Unsurprisingly, Taken 3 was the run away box office champion in its opening weekend, grossing almost $40 million. People just love Liam Neeson kicking ass, especially on a weekend and month that’s down at the theaters. And though almost everyone involved figured the third film would be the end, maybe it won’t be.
Jimmy Kimmel Live got on the train early. They created their own Taken 4 trailer a mere three days after the Taken 3 opening weekend. Liam Neeson stars, of course, as does the host himself. But it’s the subject who is actually “taken” that brings it all together. Watch this funny Taken 4 trailer below. Read More »
