The very best sci-fi movies are the ones that go beyond ooh-ing and ahh-ing at cool gadgets, to dig into the thornier questions of what these technologies mean for humankind, and what they can tell us about ourselves. And that’s what makes the award-winning Sundance drama Advantageous look so intriguing.
Directed by Jennifer Phang, Advantageous features a newfangled procedure that allows people to transfer their consciousness into a new body. But the story is really about a single mother (Jacqueline Kim) who, through various social and economic forces, is forced to consider undergoing the process in order to secure a brighter future for her young daughter (Samantha Kim).
We’re pleased to debut an exclusive Advantageous poster in advance of its premiere. Hit the jump to check it out and learn more about the film.

Below, check out the Ant-Man Avengers TV spot and posters. Read More »
When Roland Emmerich first unleashed Independence Day on the world in 1996, major cities were under attack. Washington DC, New York, Los Angeles — each city was leveled when a city-sized spaceship set off a blast over an iconic building. In Independence Day 2, it seems that idea is being expanded globally. A nice licensing poster for the film shows the aliens back in Earth space, but not floating over cities. This time, they’re floating over the entire planet.
Below, check out the first Independence Day 2 poster and read a synopsis that offers a few more details. Read More »

Given how ubiquitous Charlie Brown and Snoopy still are, it’s a bit surprising to realize they haven’t been the subjects of their own full-length feature film in 35 years. But that changes this fall with The Peanuts Movie, which gives Charles M. Schulz‘s beloved creations a 3D CG upgrade.
On paper, that description sounds kind of alarming — does that mean we’re in for a cooler, sexier Charlie? As the new Peanuts Movie poster reveals, you needn’t fear. The gang’s all here, and they still look like their own delightful selves. Check out the Peanuts Movie poster after the jump.

We never know quite what’s going to happen when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell team up, but it’s usually safe to assume we’re in for something hilariously bizarre. The pair’s newest collaboration is the Lifetime movie A Deadly Adoption.
Based on the cheesy tagline (“The birth of a plan gone wrong”), it sounds like everything you’d expect a Will Ferrell Kristen Wiig Lifetime movie to be. Get all the details, and see the first billboard, after the jump. Read More »
Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig are quietly becoming quite the force of nature. It started with Greenburg, they made magic with Francis Ha and now their latest collaboration, Mistress America, might be the best yet. Gerwig stars as the soon-to-be-step sister of a loney college freshman (Lola Kirke) just looking for a friend. The two hang out, hit it off, but they’re such incredibly different people you never quite know where the film will take you.
After its Sundance premiere, I said this about the movie: “Mistress America is by far Baumbach’s funniest film, anchored by a completely new sort of performance from Gerwig, and blessed with a script so smart and sharp, many of the film’s jokes don’t land for a few seconds because A) you’ve never heard anyone say anything like that and B) it’s just so damn intelligent.”
Now you can see what I mean. The first Mistress America trailer is out. Watch it below. Read More »
The Hunger Games series has, so far, used logos that are flashy and polished, but the Mockingjay pin logo now has a very different look. What we see now is truly a symbol of fury and resistance, rather than a slick promo for a system meant to keep a populace under control. The Capitol will have to face the wrath of a populace that has finally been pushed too far, in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, and the latest Mockingjay teaser poster leaves no questions about what fate may be in store for the nation’s leader President Snow.
