The Help

Jessica Chastain seems to be everywhere this year: rattling around a haunted house in Crimson Peak, shooting off into outer space in The Martian, running from dinos in Jurassic World. The operative word there being “seems.” Jurassic World actually stars Bryce Dallas Howard, not Jessica Chastain, though a great many people seem unable to tell the difference.

To prove once and for all that they’re two separate people — and to help everyone figure out which is which — Howard and Chastain have taken to social media to unleash a friendly musical reminder. Except it might just make things worse. Watch the Jessica Chastain Bryce Dallas Howard video after the jump.  Read More »

The Martian viral teaser

Hot on the heels of some new images from Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi adaptation The Martian, a viral video has surfaced online in the form of a video diary from astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) on the Hermes. The ship is in the process of heading to Mars, and all the astronauts are preparing for the mission ahead. It’s a pretty cool way to introduce the characters.

The Martian photos

Just last month, the first images from Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi drama The Martian surfaced, showing off Matt Damon stranded on Mars. We’re not sure when the first trailer will pop up, but now we have another glimpse at the film as two more photos have surfaced, one with our first look at The Newsroom star Jeff Daniels in the film as well.

The Martian First Look

Last year, we saw Matt Damon in astronaut mode in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar (above). And now The Bourne Identity star is returning to space with The Martian, the adaptation of Andy Weir‘s novel of the same name. Alien director Ridley Scott is at the helm of the sci-fi drama which follows an astronaut (Damon) who was part of the first team to walk on Mars. But when a dust storm catches his crew off guard, he ends up left behind on the planet, with no way to signal his astronaut colleagues, or mission control back on Earth, that he’s still alive. I guess that’s what he gets for trying to leave Matthew McConaughey behind in Interstellar

Earlier this year we got an unconventional first look at the set of The Martian thanks to a Super Bowl bet that Damon made with author Andy Weir. (Find out more about that here.) But now we actually have an official first look photo from the film with Damon in full astronaut gear.

UPDATE: A couple more of The Martian first look photos have surfaced, and we’ve added them after the jump. Read More »

A Most Violent Year is a slow burn of a film, primarily centered around a simple land deal that entrepreneur Abel Morales (Oscar Isaac) is trying to put together to sustain and grow his young oil business. Yet somehow, writer/director J.C. Chandor is able to up the stakes until they are almost unbearably tense. What hangs in the balance is not merely Morales’ business and the future of his family, but also his sense of self, his moral center. If you extrapolate it further, the film becomes and indictment of American capitalism, in the same way that films like Nightcrawler did in 2014.

With some beautiful cinematography from Bradford Young and some dynamite performances from the leads, A Most Violent Year manages to be haunting, wistful, and unforgettable. Hit the jump to see my full video review of the film.
