Stanley Kubrick’s vision of Stephen King’s The Shining has become so iconic, ripping it off is almost cliché. Oh, is that a guy with his head popping through a cracked door? A typewriter with the same phrase over and over? A snowy hedge maze? We get it.
That said, somehow a new commercial by IKEA is all kinds of awesome. It’s a blatant Shining homage/rip-off but maybe it’s the production value, the single take, the easter eggs throughout, or the absurdity of an IKEA Shining commercial existing at all, but you’ve gotta check it out. Read More »

We’re inching closer and closer to seeing Interstellar. Christopher Nolan‘s latest film, about a space journey undertaken to save the Earth, hits theaters with film-projection capabilities on November 5 and all the others November 7. I think most of us have gotten to the point where we’ve gone dark on the movie, preferring to experience the whole thing in the theater. And with a Christopher Nolan movie, that’s pretty easy. There really isn’t a lot of information or images out there.
However, some new stuff from both columns A and B have hit the net today. On the information side, we’ve learned that the near-three-hour film has more than an hour of IMAX footage. That’s a jump up from Nolan’s last film, The Dark Knight Rises. On the image side, eight new images have been released thanks to an Entertainment Weekly cover story. Read more about the Interstellar IMAX footage and check out the new images and commercials below. Read More »
We’re into the second week of Gotham, so audiences are starting to get a good idea of what Bruno Heller and his cast and crew have planned for Batman’s home town. (Hint: it seems to be an uneasy combination of camp and very serious drama, and we’ll give it another couple weeks to see how that balance settles.) A new Gotham season trailer now teases what’s to come for the rest of the year. Here you’ll see the murderer Victor Zsasz, along with hints of a few other characters. Read More »

In addition to being one of the most highly-anticipated movies of late 2014, Interstellar is also one of the most mysterious. The Christopher Nolan-directed sci-fi adventure hasn’t played any festivals or otherwise allowed for any early reviews, and even the marketing campaign has been careful not to give away too much.
And naturally, all of that secrecy just makes us more curious about the movie. For now, we’ll take what we can get. Today, that means four new TV spots which reveal a bit more Interstellar footage and clarify some of the plot details. Watch the Interstellar TV spots after the jump.

For fans of David Fincher and/or Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl became a must-see the second it was announced. But for those still on the fence — or, alternately, for those who are so eager they just need something to tide them over until the movie actually opens — Fox has tons of new marketing material to share.
Among them are the first Gone Girl clip, four new Gone Girl TV spots, and the full streaming Gone Girl soundtrack. Bury yourself in Nick and Amy’s twisted world 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 »
