Gareth Edwards and Legendary are getting ready to serve up some serious monster attacks in Godzilla. Two new Godzilla TV spots preview even more of the devastation that takes place when Godzilla (and probably another monster or two) make landfall. The great thing about these spots is that they continue the run of marketing Godzilla like a horror movie rather than a big action movie or sci-fi tentpole. That seems like the perfect way to get across a new vision of giant monsters, and really holds my interest in the film, rather than dissipating it by showing too much. Read More »

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues was crammed full of jokes, and there were so many more left on the cutting room floor that director Adam McKay was able to cobble together a second cut of the movie with 763 new jokes. But now it’s time to get serious.
Paramount has just released a clip from what it calls Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues: No Joke Cut, with exactly zero jokes. By stripping away the humor, Anchorman 2 is finally exposed as the heart-wrenching domestic drama that it really is. Watch it after the jump.

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 »

The mutants are stopping by your TV on their way to the theater. Fox has released the first X-Men: Days of Future Past TV spot, with all the action, excitement, and grave-yet-vague voiceover narration you can cram into 30 seconds.
The Bryan Singer-directed sequel weaves together the First Class and original trilogy casts, as the older versions of the X-Men find themselves in danger. In an effort to save themselves, they send one of their own back in time to join forces with the younger X-Men and alter the future. Watch the video after the jump.

The first Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer was promising because it was all ominous tension as we started to see how humans feel cornered after a viral outbreak leaves evolved apes competing with humans for control of, well, everything. Now a Dawn of the Planet of the Apes TV spot shows off more of those evolved apes. While half of this spot is dedicated to the same shot we’ve already seen, of Caesar ready for war, there are a few new shots here of other simian characters. Read More »

The Raid was packed wall-to-wall with gory, glorious action, and The Raid 2 promises to up the ante even further. A new clip from the movie offers just a sample of the insanity we can look forward to, as Rama (Iko Uwais) tries to fight himself out of a car during a car chase.
But even with a running time of 150 minutes there were a few scenes that director Gareth Evans apparently just didn’t have room for. One The Raid 2 deleted scene, featuring a bloody shootout between rival gangs, has just hit the web. Watch both the scene that made it in and the one that didn’t after the jump.
