Atomic Blonde clip 2

Focus Features has deemed the next few months an “#AtomicSummer” in honor of their upcoming spy thriller Atomic Blonde, and I’m willing to overlook that cheesy name as long as it results in us getting a better look at the movie. They kicked things off with a glimpse at one of the film’s fight scenes, but their newly-released second clip slows things down a little and shows a different side of the spy game altogether, as Charlize Theron and Sofia Boutella’s characters flirt in a crowded bar.

okja characters

Okja looks like it will be a very weird movie. And while fans of director Bong Joon-ho, the mind behind riveting sci-fi features like Snowpiercer and The Host, couldn’t eat that up more, it may take a little more to sell the casual Netflix viewer on the latest film from one of the greatest living filmmakers on the planet.

Hence the new release of eye-catching character posters of the star-studded cast of Okja, which includes names like Tilda Swinton, Steven Yeun and Jake Gyllenhaal, and a featurette introducing the Korean newcomer and star, An Seo Hyun.

Spider-Man Homecoming NBA Finals Spot

Continuing the onslaught of marketing between now and the release of Spider-Man: Homecoming next month, a new promo for the film that aired during the NBA Finals has arrived online, continuing the narrative of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) being invited to Tony Stark’s party for the big games.

In the last Spider-Man Homecoming NBA Finals spot, Spidey was sent out by Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) to get snacks for the party, specifically for Tim Duncan for some reason, but ended up having to thwart a robbery. In the new spot, the wallcrawler has finally arrived at a generic bodega to get the snacks, and he runs into a familiar face, as well as some fans.

Transformers The Last Knight TV Spot

Just when we think we’ve seen enough from Transformers: The Last Knight, another piece of the marketing campaign comes along to unleash even more Bayhem.

From Japan, a new Transformers The Last Knight TV spot shows off a whole lot of new footage from the sequel, including a shot of Bumblebee (seen above) from when he apparently helped defeat the Nazis in World War II. This movie is going to be the most bonkers installment of the Transformers franchise yet.

Rick and Morty Featurette

In the simplest terms, Rick and Morty is an animated comedy series about a drunk, genius scientist grandfather who takes his grandson on insane adventures across the universe and usually creates problem for his family back on Earth. But Rick and Morty is so much more than a series of sci-fi mishaps, vulgarities and drunken burps.

Series co-creator Dan Harmon sat down for a Rick and Morty featurette where he talks briefly about the bleak outlook that Rick Sanchez has by thinking that nothing he does really matters. Is Rick really any happier because he’s smart enough to realize that all of the things that worry the rest of his family are inconsequential? Dan Harmon certainly doesn’t think so, and he explains why in the fairly deep thinking Rick and Morty featurette you can watch after the jump. Read More »

The House Casino Tour

Making time for a night out on the town can be difficult when you’re exhausted by the suburban lifestyle of going to work and driving the kids around everywhere. But what if you could experience the luxury of Las Vegas without leaving your perfect little neighborhood? It’s not a dream anymore, because Frank’s Place is here.

Frank’s Place is the illegal, underground casino from this summer’s comedy The House that Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler start in order to make enough money to send their daughter to college after they realize they’ve wasted all the money they had intended to save for her. Jason Mantzoukas (who plays Frank) gives us a guided tour of the casino and all its glorious accommodations, which includes five-star dining, a kick-ass pool and handjobs.

Logan VFX Breakdown

Since Hugh Jackman doesn’t actually have claws that extend from and retract back into his hand, usually the creation of Wolverine’s signature adamantium claws in the X-Men franchise comes from the prop department. However, for the instances when Wolverine has to jam his claws into somebody, visual effects must be employed to make it look like the mutant has actually stabbed someone rather than just playing pretend.

In the case of Logan, the visual effects process of creating Wolverine’s claws delivering damage to bad guys was more complicated because the movie’s R-rating allowed for much more gruesome, bloody kills from his signature weapons. For those curious how they pulled it off, a Logan VFX breakdown from the visual effects company Rising Sun Pictures reveals the details layers that went into creating Wolverine’s claws and a few more seamless details.

Avengers Infinity War Set Video

Marvel Studios has churned out some great superhero movies, but one of the best things they’ve created is a short from Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi that revealed what the God of Thunder (Chris Hemsworth) was up to while the rest of The Avengers were involved in a Civil War with Captain America. The short introduced us to a goofier version of Thor as well as his roommate Daryl (who had trouble getting rent from the Asgardian in a follow-up short).

Now that same sense of humor returns, this time with Chris Hemsworth playing himself on the set of Avengers: Infinity War. The actor stumbles upon directors Anthony & Joe Russo using action figures to stage an action sequence featuring a bunch of The Avengers and even one of the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy. However, he’s not too pleased when he sees that Thor isn’t involved in the action, and he creates his own scene instead.

The Dark Tower TV Spots

Sony Pictures is bringing the long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King‘s book series The Dark Tower to theater at the beginning of August. The first trailer for the sci-fi western was more confusing than anything, especially for anyone who isn’t familiar with the book series, though our trailer breakdown may have helped a bit.

Now some TV spots for The Dark Tower have started hitting the small screen, presumably taking advantage of the audience watching the NBA Finals, and while they don’t really do much to explain the story more, they do show off more of Idris Elba slinging guns like a badass while Matthew McConaughey threatens to turn the world into hell.
