Michael Crichton‘s Westworld is a movie packed with ideas, but it doesn’t add up to much more than robots going berserk. While it’s an enjoyable film with some terrific sequences, there’s a goldmine of untapped ideas in it. The creators of HBO’s Westworld, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, take real time to explore some of those ideas — and plenty more they bring to the table — in the thrilling, unsettling, and thoughtful first four episodes of season one.
Below, read our Westworld review.

Next week brings the perfect movie for the whole family to see after a tasty Thanksgiving feast, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur. The film hits theaters everywhere on November 25th, bringing us the story of a lost dinosaur named Arlo who befriends a wild little boy who he names Spot and tries to survive in the wild on his own.
We’ve already got a good idea of just how much we’re going to cry at this movie thanks to the most recent trailer, so why not take a look at the hustle and bustle behind the scenes of making a feature length animated movie. Below we have a few videos looking at the making of The Good Dinosaur, from recording sessions with the actors to a scoring session for the soundtrack and even director Peter Sohn brainstorming and storyboarding with the crew.

A new trailer for The Good Dinosaur just arrived this week, giving us an even better look at Pixar Animation‘s latest original tale, focusing on a lost dinosaur named Arlo and his feral young human friend he meets along the way. It teases exactly the kind of high quality storytelling and animation we’ve come to expect from Pixar.
And now you can marvel at just how gorgeous the animation truly is as some high resolution The Good Dinosaur images have surfaced online. Pixar has certainly come a long way since Toy Story hit the big screen 20 years ago. Read More »
So far we’ve seen two different trailers for Pixar Animation’s second film of 2015, The Good Dinosaur. And while we’ve seen some stunning animation and have a basic idea of the story about a young apatosaurus named Arlo befriending a feral young boy in the wild, we’ve only heard one word of dialogue from the movie.
But that changes today in a quick new The Good Dinosaur trailer from overseas. This one has Spanish voiceover and bumpers, but it doesn’t make the trailer harder to follow because all the dialogue is in English, and it includes more lines from Raymond Ochoa as Arlo, as well as the first dialogue from Sam Elliott as the gruff, intimidating tyrannosaurus rex named Butch and more.

HBO debuted the first Westworld teaser to coincide with the season finale of True Detective. The brief tease for the series-length remake and expansion of Michael Crichton’s 1973 sci-fi film is certainly eye-catching and intriguing.
We don’t know much about the show. Westworld comes from exec producers Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy, and J.J. Abrams, and has been called “a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the future of sin.” Combine that with the plot of the original film, which features an amusement park for adults in which synthetic humanoids help recreate a few different periods from history, but also become very dangerous when they malfunction, and we’re excited to see what the team has created.
This Westworld teaser has some gorgeous and very tantalizing shots; check it out below. Read More »

Jeffrey Wright may not be the lead of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, but as with so many of his other projects, that doesn’t stop him from making a huge impression. His Beetee brings a thoughtful, mature vibe to the series that helps balance out the more volatile energy of his younger co-stars. It’s no wonder this tech geek has become a fan favorite.
At a recent press day in New York, I got a few minutes to chat with Wright about the Hunger Games series. He told me all about his love for Beetee, why he preferred the Catching Fire shoot to the Mockingjay one, and his plans (or lack thereof, rather) for Bond 24. Hit the jump to read my Jeffrey Wright interview.

Not long ago, the announcement of a TV series that adapts or jumps off from a noted film would have elicited nothing but eyerolls. After shows like Fargo and Hannibal, however, even the most skeptical onlooker must realize that it’s better to keep an open mind. And when HBO is involved? The “benefit of the doubt” requirement goes way up.
HBO is making a series adaptation of Westworld, based on the 1973 feature film by Michael Crichton. In the movie, visitors to an advanced theme park for adults found their lives threatened when the androids populating the park break down and change behavior thanks to a virus-like problem. Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings, Rake) has just joined the cast, along with recent signee Thandie Newton (Rogue, E.R.). Read More »
