Here’s hoping you enjoy Anna Kendrick‘s singing voice, because you’re going to be hearing a lot of it over the next year. There’s Into the Woods this Christmas, Pitch Perfect 2 next spring and, sandwiched between them, a little indie called The Last 5 Years.
Directed by Richard LaGravenese, The Last 5 Years stars Kendrick and Broadway vet Jeremy Jordan as attractive young couple Cathy and Jamie. The musical chronicles the ups and downs of their five-year relationship through song — like the one Kendrick belts out in the first The Last 5 Years clip. Watch it after the jump.

Guardians of the Galaxy is the highest-grossing film of 2014 in the US so far, and is doing well overseas. It hasn’t even opened in some markets, which is why there are new Japanese Guardians of the Galaxy TV spots. And these spots are great. They focus on Rocket, Groot, and the bunch of losers as a whole. Each spot opens with some normal images of raccoons or trees, before going to the familiar images of our weird heroes messing up jumpsuited aliens in the prison sequence. The energy is great, and the super-enthusiastic Japanese voiceover doesn’t hurt at all. Read More »

A couple of years ago, Syfy gave a pilot order to High Moon, Bryan Fuller‘s adaptation of John Christopher‘s 1969 sci-fi YA novel The Lotus Caves. The bad news for fans of the Hannibal creator is that High Moon never got picked up to series. But the good news today is that we’ll get to see it anyway.
Syfy is repurposing the 90-minute High Moon series premiere as a TV movie, to air later this month. To tease the upcoming event, the network has just released the first five minutes of the pilot-turned-film. Watch it after the jump.

Walt Disney Productions purchased the film rights to Gary K. Wolf‘s novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? shortly after the book’s publication in 1981, and Disney spent many years trying to bring Who Framed Roger Rabbit to the screen.
In the early 1980′s, Disney developed test footage with animation director Darrell Van Citters with Paul Reubens voicing Roger Rabbit, Peter Renaday and Mike Gabriel as Eddie Valiant, and Russi Taylor as Jessica Rabbit. This was right around the time that Reubens was getting ready to reveal his Pee-Wee Herman persona to the world.
The early test footage was broadcast once on a 1983 Disney Channel show called Disney Studio Showcase, and never seen from again — until now. Thief Archive (via CartoonBrew) has found the footage of the television airing of these early animation tests. Watch the Paul Reubens Roger Rabbit test footage now, embedded after the jump.

We knew that Phil Lord and Chris Miller shot a lot of extra material for 22 Jump Street, and that a good chunk of it is going to be on the Blu-ray release of the movie. (The Blu will also supposedly feature a much shorter version of the film, the 10-minute “serious” edit.) If you can’t wait a couple more months to see all the extra shenanigans that didn’t make the theatrical cut of the film, check out this clip of 22 Jump Street outtakes. Read More »

It’s not hard to imagine why Ridley Scott would want to make Exodus: Gods and Kings. It’s an epic tale for the ages, with plenty of opportunities to show off dazzling visuals and stunning performances. But if you want to hear Scott explain his attraction to the material in his own words, a new featurette has you covered.
The new video takes a peek behind the scenes of Exodus: Gods and Kings, highlighting the impressive scale of the project. Everything about this project looks massive — the sets, the cast, the scope of the story, even the racial controversy it has attracted. Check out the Exodus Gods and Kings behind the scenes featurette after the jump.

Big Hero 6 is Disney’s upcoming animated film, loosely based on a Marvel comic series, that centers on a boy who weaponizes, or hero-izes as it were, his robot Baymax. We’ve seen a lot of the rotund white Baymax in previous materials for the film, but we still don’t know much about him. In this clip we meet Baymax, and find that he’s something of a caregiver, if (at first) one who is a little, er, thick. Check out the long Big Hero 6 clip below. It’s a cute and funny bit that doesn’t seem to give away anything at all important about the film. Read More »

The rough cut of the Star Wars cantina scene is a thing that crops up online every once in a while, thanks to it having been a part of the Star Wars: Behind the Magic CD-ROM release way back in 1998. This cut of the cantina scene features rough early audio and no music, but some of the dialogue is different, the performances are often very different, and there’s a good bit of material that didn’t make the final cut. So if you haven’t seen the Star Wars cantina scene rough cut, watch below. Read More »
