Director Jeff Nichols has delivered two rich, fantastic indies with Mud and Take Shelter, but now we’ll get to see how he fares with a studio sci-fi flick, Midnight Special.
The film follows young St. Vincent star Jaeden Lieberher, a young boy who has mysterious supernatural gifts, forcing him and his father (Michael Shannon, because of course) to go on the run from agents who just don’t understand his powers. We just got our first look at the movie this past weekend, and now the first Midnight Special trailer has arrived. Read More »

Jeff Nichols‘ Midnight Special was originally scheduled to open in theaters this month. The “sci-fi chase film” is written and directed by Nichols, one the most exciting filmmakers working today. His last previous efforts, Take Shelter and Mud, are easily two of the best films of the past five years. Nichols has made a new kind of movie with Midnight Special, a sci-fi studio picture. With the film only a few months away, promotion materials are starting to come out.

On August 25th 2000, Bring It On hit theaters nationwide. Thats right, want to feel old? Its been 15 years since the release of that movie. I’ve always loved that movie for whatever reason, call it a guilty pleasure. I feel like it were released today it would have a bunch of theatrical sequels and the same success that we’re seeing from the like-minded Pitch Perfect franchise.
But what would a real Bring it on Sequel look like? I’m betting that a few years down the line we could see a theatrical Bring It On sequel/reboot with the stars playing mothers, coaches, or teachers. But where might the characters of Bring It On be 15 years later? The cast of the 2000 film give us their answers.

Since directing the teenage thieving romp The Bling Ring, director Sofia Coppola has been pretty low key on the filmmaking front. While she was initially slated to direct an adaptation of The Little Mermaid at Universal, she fell away from the project back in June this summer. And the only definitely project she has coming up is a Netflix Christmas special starring her Lost in Translation lead Bill Murray.
However, some new information has come to light pointing to a new Kirsten Dunst Sofia Coppola project sometime in 2016, which would mark their third time working together following The Virgin Suicides and Marie Antoinette. Read More »

One of the best films of the new century is undoubtedly Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s an innovative, beautiful, mesmerizing, heartbreaking and simultaneously uplifting romance. The Charlie Kaufman scripted, Michel Gondry directed film is one of my five favorites of all time, and I’ve explored and read about every facet of the film.
But there might be some of you out there who haven’t dug as deep. That’s why I wanted to post this featurette that dives into the unique and quaint visual effects of the film. Michel Gondry is known for using some interesting practical production methods, but this featurette looks at the seamless digital visual effects that helped complete the film. There are some effects here that you probably didn’t even notice.
