Six new X-Men Days of Future Past videos prove that old Pringles slogan: “Once you pop, you can’t stop.” What does the highly anticipated Marvel mutant sequel have to do with the potato chip? Nothing really, but Pringles has teamed up with Fox to promote Bryan Singer‘s film with six behind the scenes videos covering three tours of various sets, a video on the massive cast, a clip talking about the plot, and one on Singer returning to the franchise he kicked off in 2000. Once you watch one, I dare you to stop. They’re packed with new interviews, lots of new behind the scenes footage and even new footage we haven’t seen in trailers. Check out all the videos below.

Even if you’ve hit a saturation point with Star Wars, there’s a lot to be said for anything that documents the creation of the original trilogy. Those first three films developed and refined filmmaking techniques that continue to be influential. The lightsaber, for example, seems obvious at ubiquitous now, but it was a concept that hadn’t been seen on screen in the way Star Wars realized it back in 1977. Below, watch The Birth of the Lightsaber, the official featurette tracking the development of the fictional weapon. Read More »

Lost footage from Ralph Bakshi‘s animated film, The Lord of the Rings, finally expands on a scene fans know all too well from Peter Jackson’s trilogy.
Bakshi’s film, released in 1978, tells the story of two J.R.R. Tolkien books, The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers. In the live-action versions by Jackson, those films are linked by Gandalf’s battle with the massive Balrog in the Mines of Moria. Bakshi’s film has a version of that battle, but it’s very sparse and, frankly, pretty cheesy.
Now, after 36 years on the cutting room floor, Bakshi’s full early vision of the epic showdown has come to light via lost animation cells Check out some Lord of the Rings lost footage below. Read More »

Denis Villeneuve‘s latest film, Enemy, is not for everybody. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a simple college professor who realizes there’s another man who looks just like him, the film is way more complex than it seems. It’s atmospheric, captivating and wholly engaging. From the first minute, it slowly feeds you fascinating information until a mind-blowing, very odd conclusion. Enemy is one of those movies you can’t wait to discuss after you see it. Then, the more you talk about it, the better it becomes.
Enemy opened in limited release last week and expands today into theaters in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Nashville and many others. To celebrate the expansion of this mind-expanding film, A24 Films has given us two cool, behind the scenes images to premiere. You’ll see Gyllenhaal, Villeneuve and more. Check them out below.

It’s just over a week until the public debut of Darren Aronofsky‘s new film Noah, but you can all but visit the set of the film thanks to a long reel of Noah b-roll footage. This look at the creation of Noah shows off the creation of the Ark (previewed in a featurette not long ago) but also takes us into the capture of a confrontation between Russell Crowe and Ray Winstone.
We see this sort of b-roll footage for some big movies now, but it’s surprising to get such a look at Aronofsky in action. Read More »
