Inside Out

Just yesterday, the entire SlashFilm crew participated in a collaborative list of the Top 10 Films of 2015 So Far. We all voted, and then crunched the numbers to figure out what the top movies were throughout all our lists. Films like While We’re Young, Inside Out and Ex Machina made the list, but several readers also had their own favorites.

So let’s see if this alternate list of The 10 Best Films Of 2015 (Thus Far) is any better received. I’m guessing that plenty will still disagree since this one includes some more obscure titles and foreign films that a lot of people haven’t seen yet. The list is presented in the form of a video essay, so watch below to find out what the best films of 2015 so far may be! Read More »

‘Terminator: Genisys’ – What Did You Think?

Terminator Genisys set visit

This week brings the first Terminator film since 2009, and the first Terminator film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger since 2003. Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator: Genisys builds on the storylines from earlier Terminator movies, while simultaneously setting course for a completely new direction.

The story jumps between time periods and alternate timelines, as John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). When he arrives, however, he discovers the past is nothing like he expected. For one thing, this version of Sarah was raised by a T-800 (Schwarzenegger) who’s already informed her of her fate.

mission impossible escape room

A big emerging trend in gaming is the concept of an Escape Room, a cooperative game that puts you with a group working together to solve puzzles to escape a carefully designed puzzle of a room before a certain time.Paramount Pictures and Skydance have announced they are teaming with AMX and IMC to launch escape rooms at four theaters in major cities around the United States to promote the upcoming release of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Seems like a perfect match to me.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it… The Mission: Impossible Room Escape will only be at all of these theaters for a two day time period, and considering each team will get 20 minutes in the room, there will likely be limited availability — so reserve your tickets now! Read the full Mission Impossible Escape Room press release after the jump.

Queen of the Desert

After several documentaries, Werner Herzog returns to narrative features this year with Queen of the Desert. Nicole Kidman stars as Gertrude Bell, an English explorer sometimes described as the “female Lawrence of Arabia.” Along with the male Lawrence of Arabia (played here by Robert Pattinson), she helped shape the Middle East region as we know it today.

Now a new Queen of the Desert trailer has been released, and you can watch it after the jump. Damian Lewis and James Franco also star.

new Hateful Eight image

Quentin Tarantino is bringing his new film The Hateful Eight to Comic Con, which will mark the first time non-industry types have been able to see the movie in motion. Before we see that footage debut, however, a Comic Con preview offers up a great new still from the film, featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, and Kurt Russell’s amazing facial hair, which should probably get its own SAG card.

Check out the new Hateful Eight image below, and read a few comments from writer/director Tarantino. Read More »
