The Martian viral teaser

Hot on the heels of some new images from Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi adaptation The Martian, a viral video has surfaced online in the form of a video diary from astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) on the Hermes. The ship is in the process of heading to Mars, and all the astronauts are preparing for the mission ahead. It’s a pretty cool way to introduce the characters.

Jurassic World InGen Viral Video

For some reason, despite the disaster that occurred at a test run of Jurassic Park, the folks at InGen Technologies thought it was still a good idea to follow up on John Hammond’s dream and build Jurassic World. In the new film, the theme park has been operation for a while, and it seems like they’ve worked out all the bugs in the system. But of course, they create a genetically modified hybrid called the Indominus Rex, and that’s bad news.

We’ll see how that turns out next month, but in the meantime, check out this Jurassic World InGen viral video that dives into how the company’s genetic technology and dinosaur breeding has evolved over the past couple decades. There’s also a new TV spot that uses some familiar voiceover from the late Richard Attenborough as John Hammond. Watch the videos below! Read More »

Batman v Superman batsuit

Monday night Warner Bros. held IMAX screenings all over the country of the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer. This was supposed to be the big reveal for the trailer, but the Internet changed that, and the footage was released early. To thank fans for coming to the event anyway, director Zack Snyder added in about six seconds of exclusive footage to the trailer, and took to Twitter to show a brand new image of Ben Affleck‘s Batsuit.

Jeff Goldblum Jurassic World

On Easter Sunday, the Jurassic World Twitter account posted an image. Text read “The hunt is on. Happy Easter from Isla Nublar,” over a bunch of dinosaur eggs. The eggs had QR codes on them that linked to images from the upcoming film. Most of them we’d already seen, but another was incredibly interesting. This image featured a book called “God Creates Dinosaurs” by one Dr. Ian Malcolm, the character played by Jeff Goldblum in the original Jurassic Park films.

UNTITLED JOEL EDGERTON PROJECT

Reconnecting with an old friend sounds pretty nice, especially if said friend turns out to be a generous and thoughtful gift-giver. But in the first The Gift trailer, Simon (Jason Bateman) quickly realizes that his new old friend Gordo (Joel Edgerton) has a dark side — and that he could wind up exposing some of Simon’s unsavory secrets, too.

Edgerton directed and Rebecca Hall also stars. Hit the jump to watch The Gift trailer, and also to see the incredibly unsettling message “Gordo” personally sent Peter ahead of the trailer debut. Our boss will probably want to sleep with one eye open tonight. Read More »

Super troopers 2 release

“The time is meow.” That’s what the guys from Broken Lizard have to say about Super Troopers 2. After years of teasing fans and assuring them the film is on the way, the sequel is finally coming. 20th Century Fox has agreed to distribute the film but they need to see that the fans care. To show that fan support, Broken Lizard has started a Super Troopers 2 Indiegogo page hoping to raise at least $2 million. If it doesn’t raise $2 million, the film won’t happen. If they raise more, they’ll do bigger stuff in the movie. The hope is to shoot this summer and release in early 2016.

Below, read more about the Super Troopers 2 release and Indiegogo.

UPDATED: The initial $2 million was reached in a single day. This movie is happening. Now it’s just about how big the movie can get. Read more below. Read More »

Interstellar Text Adventure

Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar is the height of technical cinema. Whether you love or hate the story, the filmmaking used to bring it to life is extraordinary. The practical and digital effects, the cinematography, production design, IMAX sequences, sound effects, and score are just some of the best of the best. It’s pretty much as high-tech as a movie gets.

So what better way to celebrate Tuesday’s digital release (and the impending Blu-ray release) than with the lowest-tech game imaginable?

Paramount has launched the Interstellar Text Adventure, a text-based game similar to the popular computer games of the early 1980s. There are no images, just text; you have to type in your commands to travel through the galaxy. It’s a lot of fun and a nice throwback. Read More »

Power Rangers short film

UPDATE: The copyright debate over Power/Rangers has been settled and the film is back on YouTube and Vimeo. Click there to see both. Original story follows with the update after.

One of the biggest movie stories this week was the release of Power/Rangers, a professionally made, R-rated fan film based on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Directed by Joseph Kahn (Torque) and produced by Adi Shankar (Dredd), the Power Rangers short film put a dark, kinetic spin on the ’90s cartoon. Fans seemed to enjoy it but two groups who didn’t like the short were Saban Brands, the company who owns the Rangers, and members of the original cast.
