the Flash VFX breakdown

Given its home on The CW, who expected The Flash to become the most satisfying, and in some ways the weirdest superhero show on television? And yet here we are, one season into the show with fans eagerly awaiting the second. (The Flash season 2 debuts on October 6.)

One way to ease the wait between seasons for any show is enjoy new tidbits like a costume update. Another is to dive into breakdowns of the creation of the prior season. And so here’s a The Flash VFX breakdown that shows how some of the show’s effects, both obvious and subtle, were layered in. The real attraction here, I expect, is the footage of Gorilla Grodd, all drawn from episode 21, ‘Grodd Lives.’ Read More »

final Vacation trailer

Summer may almost be over, but the latest road trip with the Griswold family in Vacation doesn’t begin until next week. Ed Helms plays a grown up Rusty Griswold, taking his wife (Christina Applegate) and their two sons on a trip in order to help bring them closer together, just like when he was a kid.

Now a final NSFW red band trailer makes one last attempt to get audiences on board the new family truckster for a trip that is more raunchy and rowdy than any of the preceding National Lampoon titles. This isn’t the best trailer for the movie, but it does have some amusing moments, especially from then new Griswold kids.

One & Two trailer

Kiernan Shipka has new powers. We all know Shipka from her role as Sally Draper on Mad Men; we watched the young actress grow up on the show along with her character. In the new film One & Two, she also plays a young woman with family troubles, but this is a very different story. The two leads, played by Shipka and Timothée Chalamet of Homeland, are trapped on their family farm by an overbearing father who is terrified of their potential. Familiar family drama, right? Kind of, because the potential in these kids manifests as supernatural powers.

Check out the One & Two trailer below, which also features Grant Bowler of Defiance, and Elizabeth Reaser, who had her own role in the final Mad Men season. Read More »

X-Men Apocalypse Cairo set photo

At Comic-Con in San Diego, fans got their first look at X-Men: Apocalypse with an early trailer put together just for fans who waited in line to get into Hall H. But the footage leaked online (which producer Hutch Parker says is not a marketing scheme), and millions have now seen the footage showing off Oscar Isaac as the film’s titular villain.

Since then, some official first look photos have surfaced online, and sadly the look of the aforementioned villain has been frustratingly compared to that of Ivan Ooze, the villain from the first Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie. Once you see it, it cannot be unseen.

But we’re doing our best to march forward and hope for the best from the sequel. Thankfully, director Bryan Singer keeps teasing us with photos from behind the scenes, and his latest is a shot from the set of a destroyed Cairo, Egypt, which just so happens to be where the weather-controlling mutant Storm is from in the comics. Check out the X-Men Apocalypse Cairo set photo after the jump! Read More »

Mississippi Grind trailer

Half Nelson duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are back this year with Mississippi Grind, an indie drama starring Ben Mendelsohn and Ryan Reynolds as unlikely companions on a gambling road trip.

Along the way, the two men learn all about themselves and each other, and meet all sorts of characters, and reckon with the pasts that haunt them, and all of that usual stuff. But between Boden and Fleck’s eye for detail and Mendelsohn and Reynolds’ appealing chemistry, this one looks a cut above your average road trip flick. Watch the Mississippi Grind trailer after the jump.

Just Jim trailer

British actor Craig Roberts first came to our attention as the offbeat teen lead in Submarine, Richard Ayoade’s directorial debut. Now Roberts is all grown up and starring as the offbeat teen lead in Just Jim, his own directorial debut.

Roberts’ Jim is a lonely 16-year-old whose life is upended by a new American neighbor, Dean (Emile Hirsch). At first Dean’s arrival seems like a gift, as he takes Jim under his wing and brings out the cool in him, but eventually Dean’s dark side emerges. Watch the Just Jim trailer after the jump.

new Spectre trailer

The first teaser trailer for Spectre, the 25th James Bond film, dropped a few stunning plot hints, including the suggestion that Bond (played once again by Daniel Craig) has some direct link to the organization Spectre, and perhaps more than one link at that. The first extended TV spot had many flashes of action.

Now we’ve got the new Spectre trailer — the first full-length trailer for the movie, in fact — with a lot more footage, and even more info for Bond fans to chew on. There’s action in Mexico, a few cheeky lines, some new gear courtesy of Q, and a lot more mystery around that evil organization, Spectre, which turns out to have deep roots in Bond’s own past. Check it out below!

Addicted to Fresno Trailer

This summer, we’ve seen Judy Greer as a mom in Ant-Man and Jurassic World and heard her as a mom in Tomorrowland, which means maybe those films are all actually part of the shared Judy Greer Universe.

But 2015 won’t merely be the year of Greer toiling in supporting roles as a caregiver. She looks like she gets to have a lot of fun and enjoy top billing in Addicted to Fresno, playing a sex addict who tries to get her life together, but accidentally kills a guy and then robs a sex shop, neither of which really helps her plight.

The film also features Natasha Lyonne and a great supporting cast including Aubrey Plaza, Fred Armisen, Jessica St. Clair, Molly Shannon, Michael Hitchcock, and Ron Livingston. Check out the funny Addicted to Fresno trailer below. Read More »
