The Wachowski Siblings will be among the fans of this latest clip from The Amazing Spider-Man 2. In it, Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) have a Times Square showdown. However, when Electro finally unleashes his powers on Spider-Man, we see Marc Webb‘s version of bullet-time. It’s a slow motion, spinning, digital tracking shot meant to duplicate Spider-Sense. In this case, it also tracks the devastating power of Electro’s electricity. More so than almost any of the previous sizzle reels, trailers or commercials, this one-minute clip should get you excited for the epic potential of the May 2 release. Check out this new Amazing Spider Man 2 clip below. Read More »
It was a star-studded weekend on Reddit. Not only did director James Cameron do an AMA, legendary actor Harrison Ford did one, too. Both were promoting the environmental documentary Years of Living Dangerously. As things tend to do, each went awesomely off-topic. In Ford’s case, he admitted he still hopes a Blade Runner 2 get made but has yet to see a script. He talked about playing Han Solo and Indiana Jones as well as some of those characters’ more interesting quirks. His recent roles in Anchorman 2 and Expendables 3 were brought up and much more. Unfortunately, there was no mention of Star Wars Episode VII or Indiana Jones 5 but read all the highlights of the Harrison Ford AMA below. Read More »
The MTV Movie Awards came complete with a barrage of clips and ads, and one of the most significant was a minute-long clip from Bryan Singer‘s new X-Men film. Here, the Sentinels attack early in the X-Men: Days of Future Past storyline — or early in the movie at least, despite these events taking place in one possible future for the mutant race.
Here you’ll see a variety of mutants, from Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) and Colossus (Daniel Cudmore) to Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Blink (Fan Bingbing), Bishop (Omar Sy), Sunspot (Adan Canto), and Warpath (Booboo Stewart). All work together as the mutant-hunting Sentinel robots attack. You’ll see more of how the Sentinels operate, and get a sense of how the mutants are employing teamwork to defend themselves — not that it will likely do them any good, given how effective the Sentinels are.

There’s a tiny bit of new Turtle fight action in this TV spot, but the part of this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles footage that you’ll probably want to see is the first real look at the rat Splinter. You don’t get a great look at the guy, but there’s enough of a view to know that it couldn’t possibly be anyone else. The Turtles are still ugly, though, as as in the trailer. “New ugly,” I mean; the guys were never pretty, but at least they had an established look. Enough about that, however. Check out the spot below for the shot of Splinter. 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 try and grow a beard, get weirded out in a strange house, consider whether something was afoot when Kurt Cobain ”allegedly” shot himself, get all modern up in here, take in the freaks in the NYC, and get our twerk on.
