This month (and the rest of the summer) is chock full of sequels. Captain America: Civil War just kicked off the blockbuster movie season with over $181 million at the box office for the fifth highest opening weekend of all time. Another comic book sequel is on the way with X-Men: Apocalypse arriving later this month, but the film will face some pretty big competition with Disney’s sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Alice Through the Looking Glass finds the title character, played by Mia Wasikowska, away from Underland for a long while. And by the time she has returned from sailing the high seas, the magical place she saved and loved is being destroyed by Time (Sacha Baron Cohen). Not only that, but The Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), her truest friend, seems to have forgotten all about her. It’s all explained in the new Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer and clips after the jump. Read More »

We’re still about a month and a half away from seeing what happens when the aliens who attacked us 20 years ago in Independence Day regroup and come back to finish the job. As we’ve seen in viral news reports and the trailers for Independence Day: Resurgence released this year, we’ve already rebuilt, and we’ve even utilized alien technology to advance our weapons and society, including a global initiative that founded Earth Space Defense, which includes a military base on the moon.
Now another viral video has surfaced in the form of a recruitment video for Earth Space Defense with William Fichtner asking you to be all you can be…in space. We also get to hear part of a speech that President Lanford (Sela Ward) gives in the movie In addition, you can actually go enlist in ESD and play a few mini games to unlock some new footage from the film. Some of them even provide hints as to what story details we may find in the sequel. Watch the Independence Day Resurgence viral video after the jump. Read More »
The last time we were presented with an X-Men: Apocalypse clip, we were given a scene where Rose Bryne dumps exposition all over James McAvoy‘s not-yet-bald head. This new clip (while seemingly cut down from the full version of the scene) is significantly more action packed, showcasing a fight sequence between Ben Hardy‘s Angel and Kodi Smit-McPhee‘s Nightcrawler.

The Avengers have never been without internal conflict. The first Avengers had the superheroes sizing each other up and getting testy with one another; the second one saw everyone getting (justifiably) pissed off at Tony for inventing a megalomaniacal killer robot. But in the end, these guys always manage to work it out. Because someone’s gotta save the world at the end of the day, after all. And if all goes well, sometimes they even muster up the energy to celebrate with shawarma afterward.
Not so in Captain America: Civil War. This time around, the rift between Captain America and Iron Man is far bigger, with Bucky Barnes and the Sokovia Accords pulling the former teammates further and further apart. A new Captain America: Civil War featurette, breaks down the Avenger-on-Avenger conflict, and teases a big third-act showdown that promises to break from the usual Marvel formula. Star Chris Evans, producer Kevin Feige, executive producer Nate Moore, and directors Joe and Anthony Russo all weigh in. Read More »
Filmmaker Jim Jarmusch has two films premiering at the Cannes Film Festival. Jarmusch’s documentary on The Stooges, Gimme Danger, and his Adam Driver-led film, Paterson, will both make their debuts later this month. The latter project (which was co-financed by Amazon) was shooting a little under-the-radar later last year. Driver stars in the “wry comedy,” and you can now see some footage from the film.
Watch the first Paterson clips below.

The first Neighbors was such a pleasant surprise that I can’t help but slightly dread Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. After all, you’d need to borrow the hands of your family and friends if you wanted to count every lousy sequel to a great comedy. To its credit, the follow-up to one of 2014’s biggest comedies did get the whole gang back together, with stars Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron back in front of the camera and director Nicholas Stoller behind it. Is this a case where my dread is misplaced?
Maybe. After all, I did chuckle at the new clip from the film Universal just released, which is a good sign.

Yesterday, I wrote about a behind-the-scenes video that showcased just how much of Jon Favreau‘s The Jungle Book was created in post-production and I was just bowled over by it. It’s one thing to hear that a movie is set entirely in digital environments (because computers can do anything and so on), but it’s another thing to actually see the before and after (because computers can do anything and holy cow).
Disney has released a new series of stills showing the transformation of a few shots in the film, revealing how a lone kid standing in front of blue screens was transformed into a lone kid standing in a lush and photo-realistic Indian jungle by the visual effects geniuses at MPC.
