Director John Hillcoat has yet to make a major box-office hit. The director behind Lawless, The Road, and the incredible 2005 western, The Proposition, makes bleak and brutal movies about the violent side of humanity. If this Triple 9 red band trailer is any indication, though, he may have finally brought his sensibility to a commercial project. Watch the Triple 9 Red Band Trailer now after the jump.

Director David Gordon Green sure likes to keep us guessing. After a string of studio comedies, followed by a microbudget indie and a couple of dramas, he’s back on screens this fall with the political satire Our Brand Is Crisis. Sandra Bullock leads the cast as Jane, an American political strategist hired to work with a lagging Bolivian presidential candidate (Joachim de Almeida).
Billy Bob Thornton plays Jane’s professional rival. Anthony Mackie, Zoe Kazan, Ann Dowd, and the ubiquitous Scoot McNairy also star. Watch the first Our Brand Is Crisis trailer after the jump.

Back in the summer of 2014, we learned that Emmy-winning Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston would be taking his Tony-winning performance as President Lyndon B. Johnson to HBO in an adaptation of the stage play All the Way.
Production is now underway on the HBO Films production, and we have a first look photo of Bryan Cranston as LBJ, in which the actor is completely unrecognizable. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Production on Captain America: Civil War just wrapped over the weekend, and while some footage from the film was recently shown at D23 Expo, I wouldn’t count on the first official trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving until later this year, maybe with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In the meantime, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, including word on which superheroes align themselves with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when they end up at odds. The aforementioned footage from D23 essentially confirmed those rumors, but in case you needed more substantial evidence, some Captain America Civil War promo art has surfaced showing each of the teams, but beware of spoilers below.

For a Marvel movie, Ant-Man was pretty self-contained. It mostly kept to its own tiny corner of the universe, with its own colorful cast and own potentially world-destroying problems. The one major exception was a scene midway through the movie, when Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) sneaks into Avengers HQ.
His subsequent encounter with Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon (Anthony Mackie) is one of the film’s highlights — a playful tie-in that does a great job of showing off Ant-Man’s unique abilities. While most of us have already seen Ant-Man at this point, it still makes for an entertaining rewatch. See the Ant-Man vs Falcon clip after the jump. Read More »
We’re not anywhere near being able to say “Christmas is just around the corner.” It’s not even fall yet and all the pumpkin-spiced junk is hitting shelves along with Halloween decorations, but still, it’s just a little too kooky to even start thinking about Christmas.
However, when you’re a movie studio and you have to start promoting movies a few months out, you have to start parading the holiday movies way ahead of time. And that’s where the Love the Coopers trailer comes into play, showing off a new Christmas comedy featuring the likes of Ed Helms, Olivia Wilde, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried and more. Watch the trailer below! Read More »

It was a balmy September afternoon when I left my house to visit the Queens, New York set of Jonathan Levine‘s The Night Before, on the second to last day of a 35-day shoot. But when I got there, I was greeted with a scene that looked like Christmas on steroids, replete with colorful lights, harried shoppers, and of course, ugly sweaters.
Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Anthony Mackie were prancing around a fake Manhattan toy store (don’t call it FAO Schwarz), performing Kanye West’s “Runaway” on an enormous Big-style keyboard. If you’ve seen the trailer for the film, you’re likely familiar with the scene, which has already “instant classic” written all over it.
In between takes, Levine, his cast, and more clued us in on their R-rated entry into the Christmas movie canon. Get the full report from our The Night Before set visit after the jump. Read More »
