Nearly ten years after the original Sin City, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller go back to seedy streets with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. The aesthetic approach is the same: black and white, dotted with color. The technique, which heavily relies upon green screen shooting, is hopefully much refined after a decade of practice and technological advances. There’s a new long Sin City: A Dame to Kill For TV spot today; and the one-minute mini-trailer is a good way to take a look at the film. Read More »

Trailers and TV spots for Godzilla have been doling out information about the film in small chunks over time. That especially goes for the monster, which has been seen in the distance, through fire and smoke, and in fractured form. But Warner Bros. and Legendary aren’t being shy with the creature; there are quite a few full images out there — we just haven’t seen much in motion so far. This new TV spot gives up some new footage, including a great shot of Godzilla as he roars the “bending girder” sound that is so familiar. Check out the spot below. Read More »

Joss Whedon‘s next movie as a director is about as mainstream and big-budget as movies get. But his next release as a writer is more Much Ado About Nothing than Avengers. Directed by Brin Hill, In Your Eyes follows two people (Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David) who’ve never met and are separated by thousands of miles. Nevertheless, they share a metaphysical connection that neither of them can quite explain.
Tribeca Film Festival attendees will get to watch the full movie when it premieres this weekend, but the rest of the world can watch the opening scene right now. Watch the first In Your Eyes clip after the jump.

So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

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 »
