new Foxcatcher teaser

Here’s another terrific new Foxcatcher teaser. Bennett Miller‘s new film is based on a true story about a wealthy guy (Steve Carell) who builds a facility to train wrestlers in the hope of winning gold at the 1988 Olympics. The wrestler he pinned his hopes upon, played here by Channing Tatum, was the younger brother of a more successful grappler, played by Mark Ruffalo. And it seems like the younger guy had some problems. In fact, it seems like a couple people have problems. We’ll leave it at that.

The marketing push for the movie so far has been all about setting up broken characters and some really heavy atmosphere, and this new Foxcatcher teaser continues in that mode. There’s little hint of where the story goes, but based on the way this teaser is cut, you know it won’t end well. Read More »

Bill Hader Skeleton Twins

A spin around the TV dial is almost guaranteed to turn up at least one appearance by Bill Hader. Whether it be his memorable stint on Saturday Night Live, smaller film roles in Judd Apatow comedies, leading roles in Greg Mottola comedies, adding voices to Edgar Wright movies, writing South Park episodes, or a commercial for his wonderful new drama The Skeleton Twins, Hader seems to be everywhere. And that’s a good thing. The guy is talented and funny, and a huge film fan.

In the book “Poking a Dead Frog: Conversations With Today’s Top Comedy Writers” by Mike Sacks, Hader contributed his own list of “200 Essential Movies Every Comedy Writer Should See.” It pretty safe to say, though, you don’t have to be a comedy writer to appreciate these gems. Some are obvious, some not, but it’s a fun list even just as a jumping off point for a debate.

Below, check out the list of Hader’s 200 Essential Comedies and even watch him talk about it. Read More »

Exodus casting controversy

Normally, Ridley Scott tapping Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton for the leads of his next movie would be cause for excitement. But in the case of Exodus: Gods and Kings, Scott’s choices have raised some eyebrows. You see, Exodus is a film set in ancient Egypt, about ancient Egyptians, specifically Moses and Ramses.

More than a few people have pointed out the oddness of casting Caucasian people to play Africans — especially since the few black actors he did cast appear to be playing lower-class and criminal elements. Now Scott has finally responded to the Exodus casting controversy. Read his explanation after the jump.

Chloë Grace Moretz Says Piracy Killed ‘Kick-Ass 3′

everything wrong with Armageddon

The guys at CinemaSins have returned with a new Everything Wrong With… video essay. This time the video takes a look at Michael Bay‘s 1998 feature film Armageddon. Some people seem to hate these videos, but it seems like few can resist from clicking through and hitting the play button. I’m sure we’ll see fewer complaints in the comments this time, with a 14-minute video making fun of a Michael Bay movie.

That said, I love so much about this movie, and Bay’s earlier efforts when he had a producer that was powerful enough to say “no” every once in a while. Watch Everything Wrong With Armageddon, embedded after the jump.
