Tom Cruise brings a lot of respectability to The Mummy. More than one would maybe expect from the first entry in the potential Universal Monster Movie Universe, partly because it’s following up the disastrous Van Helsing, The Wolfman, and, a movie erased from the new world of monsters, Dracula Untold. Universal has struggled to bring their iconic monsters back to the big screen in the past, but Cruise’s involvement in this universe, especially after seeing him in the solid trailer, inspires some confidence — and maybe because you know you’re usually in for a fun time with most movies starring Tom Cruise.
Below, watch The Mummy featurette, which features footage not shown in the trailer.

Chances are you’ve already seen Moana, and if you’ve already seen Moana, chances are you’ve got the songs stuck in your head. Maybe you’ve tried to get your fix by streaming the soundtrack on Spotify or downloading it on iTunes. But it’s just not the same without the bright, expressive visuals by Disney Animation, is it?
Happily, the Mouse House is sympathetic to our plight. The studio previously shared a clip showcasing Dwayne Johnson‘s big musical number “You’re Welcome,” and today they’ve unveiled another clip featuring “We Know the Way.” (Yes, Hamilton fans, that’s the one where you can hear Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s vocals.) Watch the Moana “We Know the Way” clip below. Read More »
We are ten days away from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hitting theaters and it already feels like the marketing for this film is reaching a fever pitch. Disney has released another featurette, this one focusing on the aliens and creatures featured in the first Star Wars anthology film. While the marketing for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was so laser-focused on convincing fans that this was a return to practical effects, locations, and creatures, we haven’t seen much of this angle for Rogue One. But this new featurette takes us into the Rogue One creature shop to take a look at the artistry behind the aliens and creatures in this film. Hit the jump to watch it now.

Production on Transformers: The Last Knight has officially wrapped, and we know that because the official Twitter account for the film franchise has just posted a video announcing the completing of shooting.

As of this moment, 20th Century Women is my favorite movie of the year. Mike Mills‘ (Beginners) latest film is warm, compassionate, honest, and funny. It’s easily the director’s most accomplished feature to date. While watching 20th Century Women, there are themes that call to mind his previous features. Time is a crucial component of Mills’ work, and in 20th Century Women, he focuses on a very particular and relatable time in most peoples’ lives.

A Monster Calls is a heartbreaking movie. When J.A. Bayona‘s (The Impossible) latest film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, in a nice bit of promotion, tissue boxes were handed out to those in attendance. That was a good call because the film certainly made our own Angie Han choke up once or twice. She praised the drama as a “five-hankie sobfest, a ruthlessly effective tearjerker even by cancer drama standards,” despite a few scenes she found too manipulative.
Below, watch A Monster Calls featurette, which shows how the story came about and evolved.

Before you start doling out superlatives for the year in movies, you’ll want to check out what I’m pretty sure is still one of the most unsettling cinematic experiences of 2016. The Eyes of My Mother creeped the hell out of audiences at Sundance at the start of the year, and has spent the past several months traumatizing the rest of festival circuit with its odd blend of startling beauty and quiet but visceral brutality. Now, at long last, it’s available for everyone to see. But if you’re still not quite convinced, allow an exclusive The Eyes of My Mother featurette to make its pitch. Click through to watch.

The season finale of Westworld is just a couple days away, and soon we’ll get to see how many of the ever-growing list of theories about the show actually turn out to be true. The most recent episode of Westworld already confirmed one major theory that has been kicking around since the season premiere, and the finale will likely confirm or debunk the popular but controversial theory that Jimmi Simpson‘s character William is actually a younger version of Ed Harris‘ character The Man in Black.
While we wait for the 90-minute season season finale to hit HBO on Sunday, series executive producer J.J. Abrams stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to tease what he calls a “crazy” conclusion to the first season, and he even brought a clip from the finale to hold us over.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
With December just around the corner, it’s time for your office to start planning their annual office party, but I can almost guarantee that yours won’t be quite as epic as the festivities that will unfold in Office Christmas Party.
The new R-rated holiday comedy is coming to theaters next week, and to help spread the cheer; three new clips have just debuted online. There’s no new peeks at the impending holiday party, but these are clips from earlier in the film leading up to the massive shindig that will go awry in Chicago. The first two are tame enough, but the last one has some potentially NSFW language if you’re not listening with headphones.
