Even if you’re a monster movie aficionado, it’s likely you’ve never seen one quite like Nacho Vigalondo‘s Colossal. Anne Hathaway stars as Gloria, whose charm helps paper over the fact that she’s a total mess. Unemployed and freshly single, she moves back to her hometown and reconnects with an old friend (Jason Sudeikis) who becomes her new drinking buddy.
So far, it sounds like just another quarter-life crisis indie dramedy, right? But Gloria, it turns out, shares a mysterious connection to a giant monster that’s been rampaging through Seoul. As the truth of the situation dawns on her, Gloria must figure out how to stop it from spiraling completely out of control. Watch the Colossal teaser below. Read More »

Movies about giant monsters descending upon cities are a common sight, as are movies about chronic screwups trying to get their lives back on track. But if a movie has ever combined those premises before, I haven’t seen it.
Written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, Colossal stars Anne Hathaway as a hard-drinking, unemployed thirty-something who hits rock bottom when she gets dumped. But her messy life takes an even crazier turn when she realizes that she’s somehow connected to an enormous creature that’s begun terrorizing Seoul. It’s a bizarre conceit that works against all odds, anchored by strong performances from Hathaway as Gloria and Jason Sudeikis as Oscar, Gloria’s childhood friend. Read More »
Over the past couple months, the cast of the Ocean’s Eleven spin-off Ocean’s Eight has slowly been filling out. Sandra Bullock was the first name attached to the project, and we later learned that she would be playing Danny Ocean’s sister, who also happens to be a charming ex-con just like her brother. Since then, the cast has added Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and Mindy Kaling, but now three more names have just been added to the roster. Read More »
This month (and the rest of the summer) is chock full of sequels. Captain America: Civil War just kicked off the blockbuster movie season with over $181 million at the box office for the fifth highest opening weekend of all time. Another comic book sequel is on the way with X-Men: Apocalypse arriving later this month, but the film will face some pretty big competition with Disney’s sequel to Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.
Alice Through the Looking Glass finds the title character, played by Mia Wasikowska, away from Underland for a long while. And by the time she has returned from sailing the high seas, the magical place she saved and loved is being destroyed by Time (Sacha Baron Cohen). Not only that, but The Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp), her truest friend, seems to have forgotten all about her. It’s all explained in the new Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer and clips after the jump. Read More »
It’s been 14 years since Anne Hathaway returned as Crown Princess of Genovia, Amelia “Mia” Thermopolis, in The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement. Since then, the actress has won an Oscar for her turn in Les Misérables, and she’s taken some pretty big roles in films such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Dark Knight Rises, Alice in Wonderland and more. But it sounds like she may be heading back to Disney princess territory again.
Director Garry Marshall says he and Anne Hathaway have talked about getting back together for The Princess Diaries 3. Find out what the filmmaker had to say about the sequel after the jump. Read More »

Last night, ABC aired The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60. The two-hour special was a star-studded celebration of Disney’s storied past, from Mickey Mouse to Beauty and the Beast to Star Wars: The Force Awakens… but the studio also took the chance to look forward at some of its upcoming offerings. In addition to new concept art for Star Wars Land, the studio also served up new footage from its three live-action fairy tales due out this year: Pete’s Dragon, The Jungle Book, and Alice Through the Looking Glass.
Mia Wasikowska returns for that last one as Alice, who get caught up in a race against Time — literally, since Time turns out to be a man played by Sacha Baron Cohen. The Alice in Wonderland sequel also features the returns of Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and the voice of Alan Rickman as the Blue Caterpillar, in what has turned out to be his final film. Watch the latest Alice Through the Looking Glass TV spot below. Read More »
Just last week, the first teaser trailer for Alice Through the Looking Glass arrived, the sequel to Tim Burton’s 2010 adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. It’s quite an early tease for the film that won’t arrive until next summer, and now a batch of posters featuring some of the prominent Wonderland characters and one new face have surfaced.
Mia Wasikowska, Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter all get their own posters, reprising their characters from the first film. In addition, Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays a part-human, part-clock manifestation of Time gets his own poster as well, with all of the character surrounded by trippy, melting clocks. Read More »

At this point Disney has more live-action fairy tales in various stages of development than we can count, but the movie that kicked off that whole craze to begin with was 2010’s Alice in Wonderland. The Tim Burton-directed adventure racked up more than $1 billion worldwide, making a sequel more or less inevitable, and now that sequel is almost here.
James Bobin (The Muppets) replaces Burton in the director’s chair this time around, but the original cast is back including Mia Wasikowska as Alice, Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway as the White Queen, and Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen. There are some new characters, too, including Rhys Ifans as the Mad Hatter’s dad and Sacha Baron Cohen as Time himself. Watch the Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer after the jump. Read More »

It took director Shane Carruth nine years to make a follow-up to 2004’s time travel instant-classic Primer. Thankfully, 2013’s Upstream Color was a remarkable sophomore effort, a science fiction tinged drama that was as emotionally moving as his debut feature was mind-bending. Even more thankfully, we won’t have to wait nearly a decade for this third movie. His new movie is on the way and its already assembled a jaw-dropping ensemble.
We already knew that The Modern Ocean would be Carruth’s first step into big-budget filmmaking, but no one saw this cast coming. The man who once worked miracles with a couple thousand bucks is now commanding a cast that includes Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield and Jeff Goldblum. More details on the Modern Ocean cast can be found after the jump.
