During periods of his career, Martin Scorsese has enjoyed working with one lead actor over and over again. In the Seventies, Eighties and Nineties, that actor was Robert De Niro. In the last two decades, it was Leonardo DiCaprio. However, the three have never worked together on a feature film. That’s the gag in a series of commercials for two casinos in Manila, Philippines.
Scorsese directed the commercials, which star DiCaprio and De Niro as themselves, competing for a same role. However, these are not just commercials. These are basically trailers for a short film called The Audition that will also bring Brad Pitt into the mix. Yes, it’s a Martin Scorsese directed short starring DiCaprio, De Niro and Pitt. And rumor has it, each actor made over $10 million for the work. Check out the Martin Scorsese Leonardo DiCaprio Robert De Niro commercials below. Read More »

Call me crazy, but I’m looking forward to Project Almanac. After a few delays, Paramount debuted the film at Comic-Con in July and reactions were pretty good. Now, months after that, the found-footage time travel film is finally hitting theaters on January 30.
To gear up, Paramount has released five TV spots for the film, which, follows what happens when a group of teenagers discover a device in their house that makes time travel possible. They begin to use it for all kinds of crazy immature things – revenge, money, skipping school, and lust – until everything gets really messed up.
Directed by Dean Israelite, written by Jason Harry Pagan & Andrew Deutschman and produced by Michael Bay, Project Almanac opens January 30. Check out the new Project Almanac footage from the TV spots below. Read More »
Of all the TV shows coming to the small screen in 2015, Vince Gilligan‘s Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul has to be among the most anticipated. The show premieres February 8 and 9 on AMC and will explore the character of Saul Goodman, played by Bob Odenkirk. In Breaking Bad, it always seemed like Saul had connections to some really, really messed up people and this show – which is set before, during and after Breaking Bad depending on the story – will give us a better idea of how a struggling lawyer named James McGill became the slimy lawyer Saul.
AMC has just released our best look yet at the show via a cool new 30 second TV spot. It’s almost all new footage, so check out the Better Call Saul trailer below. Read More »
For the past decade, Noah Wyle has been The Librarian. That’s a character who featured in three made-for-TV movies following an adventurer traveling the world looking for artifacts. He’s very much inspired by Indiana Jones. Now, that character will play a role in a regular TV series that expands the movie’s mythology.
The show is called The Librarians, and it follows a secret society that protects the world from mysterious happenings. Wyle will appear sporadically as his character, but he’s since passed the mantle of Librarian to a new group of characters, including one played by Rebecca Romijn. Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate) is one of the executive producers and will direct a few episodes of the series, which debuts December 7.
Below, read more about the show and watch The Librarians trailer. Read More »
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.

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 »
