Those who braved the recent MTV Movie Awards were generiously awarded with 90 seconds of new footage from The Dark Knight Rises. That footage was not supposed to show up online. Bootlegs hit the internet, of course, and were taken down immediately following the show. Weeks later, Warner Bros. has finally released footage for everyone to enjoy.
In this edit, you’ll see new glimpses of Anne Hathaway as Selina Kyle, Tom Hardy as Bane and Christian Bale as Batman. It’s an action-oriented, comic book character focused look at Christopher Nolan‘s highly anticipated film that’s now less than a month away. Check out the footage below. Read More »

There has rarely been something as good for Monday morning water cooler talk than HBO Sunday nights. All the way back to The Sopranos and Sex and the City up through Girls and Game of Thrones, HBO’s Sunday night line-up creates all kinds of next-day chatter amongst friends, family and co-workers, who discuss the company’s thought-provoking, exciting and controversial shows. This Monday is no different as Sunday night, Aaron Sorkin‘s latest TV show The Newsroom premiered.
The show, which was created by the Oscar-winning writer of The Social Network and creator of TV shows like The West Wing, stars Jeff Daniels, Emily Mortimer, John Gallagher, Jr., Alison Pill, Thomas Sadoski, Olivia Munn, Dev Patel and Sam Waterston. It tells the behind the scenes story of a nightly cable-news TV program. Reactions following the premiere range from calling it the best show on TV to a huge misfire from Sorkin. If you don’t have HBO, you were in the dark about the show. Until now.
HBO has posted the entire 72 minute pilot episode, directed by Greg Mottola, online. Check it out below. Read More »
The Internet has been abuzz this week with the news of Star Wars 1313, a video game that’ll provide a more mature look at the Star Wars universe. You star as a bounty hunter working in the underworld of Coruscant sometime between the events of Star Wars Episodes III and IV.
Initially, several images were released but it was unclear whether they were concept images, gameplay or cut scenes. Now, actual gameplay footage from the Star Wars 1313 has been revealed and it’s extremely impressive. Check it out below. Read More »
Before we once again see Chris Hemsworth as Thor, legendary director Ron Howard snatched him up to co-star in the true racing story Rush. Hemsworth plays James Hunt, a world champion Formula One racer whose lifestyle choices made him a direct rival of another world champion racer, Niki Lauda, played by Inglorious Basterds star Daniel Bruhl. Howard has been shooting his period piece for several months, incorporating real race footage, precision driving and more.
After the jump, you can see a nearly 4 minute featurette about the making of the film that cuts between Howard’s production and the actual footage he’s trying to recreate along with interviews and behind the scenes action. It’s fantastic. Read More »
In 2005, Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell kind of invented the viral video with Lazy Sunday, a rap song on Saturday Night Live about an activity filled Sunday in Manhattan. The song was catchy, funny, introduced millions of people to YouTube and probably drove up tickets sales a few dollars for The Chronic-WHAT-cles of Narnia. That was seven years ago.
This past weekend marked Kristen Wiig’s final Saturday Night Live, and possibly Samberg’s, so they commemorated the occasion with a sequel, Lazy Sunday 2. No trips to Magnolia Cupcakes or The Chronicles of Narnia this time, though. It’s all about mimosas and Sister Act the musical. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
If the career of writer Kevin Williamson is any indication, his new TV show The Following could be in trouble. It’ll premiere later this year on Fox and stars Kevin Bacon as an FBI agent on the hunt for a serial killer (James Purefoy) who can psychically connect with fellow murders. Sounds promising and, from the guy who wrote Scream, could be truly special.
So how could it be in trouble? Williamson’s career has followed a pattern of huge hit followed by big disappointment ever since he first broke into the business. There were the first two Scream movies, then there was The Faculty and Teaching Mrs. Tingle. Dawson’s Creek was a huge success, but Hidden Palms wasn’t. Currently, he’s experiencing more massive success with The Vampire Diaries so one has to wonder, will The Following follow in the steps of that show or one of the others. Check out the trailer below and decide for yourself. Read More »
By its very nature, the world of Tron has always been about the visuals. It’s a franchise set inside a video game where programs live on a digital grid, compete in games and get around on cycles that leave bright, beaming trails of light in their wake. The original 1982 film was a milestone of special effects and its 2010 sequel pushed the bar of what 3D and digital effects could be. However, in live action, that kind of visual aesthetic can be expensive so taking Tron into the animated world, where anything is possible, seems like a perfect marriage.
Tron: Uprising, a new animated show on Disney XD, takes place between the two films and tells a new story with familiar characters. It also happens to be everything the Tron movies always wanted to be but never were. At least, that seems to be the case from its pilot episode/prequel, Beck’s Beginning, which fans can see on May 18 on Disney Channel and May 21 on Disney XD before the show premiere June 7.
Or you can watch the entire first episode, in full, after the jump as well as read more about what Tron: Uprising has in store.
