Last month, Bad Robot cracked open a mystery box we didn’t even know existed. The first teaser trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane would’ve looked promising under any circumstance, what with its vaguely creepy premise and stellar cast (John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher Jr.). But the title added an extra layer of intrigue. Was this the Cloverfield sequel fans had been waiting for? If not, what connection, if any, could the new film have to Cloverfield?
We’ll have our answers sooner rather than later, as 10 Cloverfield Lane is scheduled to hit theaters in a little over a month. But in the meantime, Paramount devoted some (very expensive) time during the Super Bowl to give curious audiences some more material to mull over. Watch the new 10 Cloverfield Lane Super Bowl spot after the jump. Read More »
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets isn’t quite a return to sci-fi for Luc Besson, as his last feature film, Lucy, was also in the genre. But Lucy didn’t share much in common with The Fifth Element, Besson’s 1997 hit. Valerian, his new movie and his biggest picture to date, seems to be more in the same mold as The Fifth Element. The sci-fi project stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevigne, Clive Owen, John Goodman, and more, and it’s shooting right now. Get a look at some behind-the-scenes photos after the jump.

When did The Big Lebowski 2 become a thing we talk about? Not only that, but a thing we ask the Coen Brothers about? 2009 is about as far back as I could go to find the filmmaking duo shooting down the idea of a sequel to The Big Lebowski. With their latest film opening in theaters this Friday, Hail, Caesar!, once again they’ve been asked about the imaginary project.

2016 may just be the year that the video game movie “curse” is broken once and for all. Assassin’s Creed has lined up a cast and crew that’d be the envy of most prestige dramas, Warcraft looks like a meticulously realized fantasy epic of staggering ambition, and even Angry Birds looks pretty damn cute.
Rounding out that roster now is Ratchet & Clank, the new film based on PlayStation’s hit game. The first trailer has just landed online, and it looks like an enjoyable all-ages ride. Watch the Ratchet and Clank trailer 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 »

Although Bryan Cranston‘s been plenty busy over the past few years, he hasn’t actually been seen in a lead role onscreen since Breaking Bad. So it’s nice to see him take the spotlight again in Trumbo, Jay Roach‘s drama about Hollywood at the height of anti-Communist fervor.
Cranston plays Spartacus and Roman Holiday screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted from the industry due to his political beliefs. Helen Mirren, Diane Lane, Louis C.K., Elle Fanning, Michael Stuhlbarg, and John Goodman also star. Watch the Trumbo trailer after the jump. Read More »
Kevin Smith‘s career changing movie Red State could have gone in a very different direction. Smith has gone on the record saying that he had a different ending of the film in mind when he first wrote the script. However, he they realized the budget was only $4 million, he scrapped the bigger ending in favor of something smaller and quieter.
In other interviews, Smith has said what he wanted that ending to be but – in case you haven’t read it – I won’t say it here. Especially because Smith has proved Entertainment Weekly with an animated version of this original vision and it’s absolutely insane, especially if you don’t know what’s coming.
Watch the animated Red State alternate ending below. Read More »
