the martian extended cut

Ridley Scott‘s extended cuts can be somewhat hit or miss. The longer versions of American Gangster and Robin Hood, for example, mostly just added more minutes to the running time. Neither version proved to be the Kingdom of Heaven: Director’s Cut, a fantastic cut that contains all the nuances lost in the theatrical version.

Last year we heard rumblings about an extended cut of The Martian, and it’s been confirmed that later this year we might see Scott’s longer version of the adaptation.

the huntsman winter's war clips

The most important thing about The Huntsman: Winter’s War is that there is at least one scene where Emily Blunt rides a polar bear. This was true when the first trailer arrived last month and it continued to be true when the second trailer arrived last week. This film seems to offer its fair share of pleasures for all kinds of people – the astonishingly handsome Chris Hemsworth strutting about with just enough chest exposed, the lovely Jessica Chastain kicking all kinds of ass in black leather, the incredible Charlize Theron vomiting black goo all over the place – but I’m buying a ticket because Emily Blunt is a literal ice queen who rides a fantasy polar bear. How did this movie gain access to the darkest corners of my brain?

Anyway, a batch of new The Huntsman: Winter’s War clips have arrived and one of them is entirely about Emily Blunt and her polar bear. Be still, my pounding heart.

Huntsman Winter's War trailer

Sunday was the first official day of spring, so naturally Universal is celebrating with a trailer that’s all about winter. The Huntsman: Winter’s War takes Eric the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) and Ravenna (Charlize Theron) back before they met Snow White, to a time when he got caught up in the battle between Ravenna and her sister Freya (Emily Blunt).

As one of Freya’s loyal protectors, Eric is forbidden to fall in love with a fellow Huntsman — but that rule becomes awfully difficult to follow when he sets eyes on Sara (Jessica Chastain). Watch the Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer below.

Jessica Chastain Molly's Game

Over the course of his career, Aaron Sorkin has put his words in the mouths of some very talented actors, from Michael Fassbender (Steve Jobs) to Jeff Bridges (The Newsroom) to Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network). And now that he’s getting ready to make the leap from writing to directing, he’s got his eye on another world-class thespian. Jessica Chastain is being courted to lead Molly’s Game, based on a true-life story set in the world of high-stakes underground poker.  Read More »

the huntsman winter's war trailer

The most important thing to understand about the new The Huntsman: Winter’s War trailer is that there are at least two shots where Emily Blunt, playing a literal ice queen named Freya, rides a polar bear. Now, I’m not sure what you value in life, but Emily Blunt as an ice-blasting sorceress sitting astride a polar is the kind of thing that can get us through a dark and lonely day. That’s some serious D&D shit right there.

The rest of the trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War isn’t nearly as inspiring, looking like a half-baked rehash of the already half-baked Snow White and the Huntsman. And yet it’s hard to find too much to hate about a movie that somehow managed to wrangle Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chasten, and Emily Blunt (on a polar bear!) into the same ensemble.

The Huntsman trailer

The full trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War debuts next week, but in the meantime, Universal has released a teaser for the trailer. The sequel/spinoff features an excellent cast, which is why, after the underwhelming first film, Snow White and the Huntsman, this might actually be worth seeing.

After the jump, watch a whopping 15 seconds from The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

UPDATE: Shortly after we shared the first The Huntsman teaser, the first full-length The Huntsman trailer went up. Watch it below.

Huntsman director

Universal ditched the Snow White half of Snow White and the Huntsman some time ago, but the Huntsman will be back next year headlining his very own movie. And as of today, that movie has a new title, a new synopsis, and four first-look promotional images.

The Huntsman: Winter’s War has dished out four new character posters featuring Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Jessica Chastain, or, as I think of them, “Thor and three people the internet wishes would play Captain Marvel.” Get your The Huntsman first look after the jump.  Read More »

Crimson Peak trailer

We’re a week and a half away from the opening of Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson PeakThe buzz is strong for the director’s horror-romance, but it’s still a financial gamble. Del Toro’s film is an original, R-rated period piece, which are never a sure thing at the box-office. Then again, there’s nothing else quite like Crimson Peak coming out anytime soon, so maybe that’ll be enough to draw general audiences in. It’s a very good, beautifully directed movie — and a Crimson Peak clip, a handful of features and TV spots highlight the beauty of del Toro’s latest. Check them out after the jump.

Crimson Peak trailer

Writer-director Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak made a surprising debut this weekend at a festival well-suited for the film. The romantic horror picture, from the director of Pan’s Labyrinth and Pacific Rim, probably wouldn’t have fit in at Toronto or the ongoing NYFF. But at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, del Toro’s latest was perfect for the genre-oriented film festival. To no one’s surprise, the first wave of Crimson Peak reviews are positive.
