After two movies that blended live-action and animation, Sony Pictures Animation is taking The Smurfs in an entirely different direction with a new fully computer animated adventure, featuring a completely different voice cast, and a mystery for the blue guys (and one girl) to solve.
Smurfs: The Lost Village follows Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty as they defy Papa Smurf’s rules, head into the Forbidden Forest, and try to find a rumored lost village full of…well, we don’t know, but they have eyes just like the Smurfs, so I guess that’s a good sign?

Put the words “Carrie,” “New York City,” and “premium cable” side by side, and you’ll probably assume I’m about to go into a discussion of Sex and the City. But no, it’s a different Carrie on a different show on a different network. Showtime has released a new Homeland season 6 teaser trailer, which sends Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) to Brooklyn where she’s working for a foundation that helps American Muslims. But of course she gets caught up in espionage and intrigue again. Watch the Homeland season 6 teaser trailer below. Read More »

The first full-length trailer for Homeland Season 5 begins with Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) in a good place. She’s got a cushy private job in Berlin, she’s dating a handsome new fellow, and she finally seems to have taken to motherhood. Most importantly, she’s left behind the CIA, the source of her greatest triumphs and tribulations over the years.
… Or so she thought. This is still Homeland we’re talking about, after all. It’s not long before Carrie gets sucked back into a web of international intrigue involving shady government organizations, hackers, black-ops agents, and a rather pissed off Saul Berenson (Mandy Patinkin).

But now the studio is having its Sony Pictures Animation division take a crack at the little blue creatures in a fully computer animated feature film that will harken back to creator Peyo Culliford’s original animation style.
Since today is supposedly Global Smurfs Day, there’s no better time for Sony to unveil a first look at the film, which is called Get Smurfy. In addition, the studio has also unveiled three of the principal cast members: Demi Lovato, Rainn Wilson and Mandy Patinkin.

Showtime has released another new trailer for Homeland Season 4. This new trailerreveals a bunch of new tidbits about the upcoming season. For instance, we learn that the story picks up after the CIA is trying to control the damage of a drone strike killed civilians in Pakistan (sounds like a subplot from the last season of 24: Live Another Day) and it also appears Saul and Carrie are friendly once again.

Zach Braff‘s Wish I Was Here is now infamous because of the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter campaign. But the film premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and was a real crowd pleaser — earning a standing ovation at the Premiere screening (it was one of my favorites of this year’s fest). Focus Features snapped up the distribution rights, and the movie is being released on July 25th, 2014. The Wish I Was Here trailer was released this morning, and you can see it for yourself. Wish I Was Here is a dramedy about “a thirtysomething man who finds himself at major crossroads, which forces him to examine his life, his career, and his family.” The ensemble cast includes Zach Braff, Kate Hudson, Mandy Patinkin, Josh Gad, Joey King, Jim Parsons, Ashley Greene, and Donald Faison. Watch Zach Braff’s Wish I Was Here teaser trailer embedded after the jump.

For the last few years, one of the highlights of the Academy Awards night has been what comes after the Academy Awards. Namely, Jimmy Kimmel‘s post-Oscar spoof of Hollywood filmmaking at its grandest. This year was no exception.
After knocking it out of the park two years in a row with Movie: The Movie and its inevitable sequel, he switched gears this year to bring us highfalutin Oscar bait trailers starring the likes of Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Ben Kingsley… based on the likes of YouTube classics “David After Dentist,” “Keyboard Cat,” and “Charlie Bit My Finger.” Check ’em all out after the jump.

Zach Braff‘s Wish I Was Here is now infamous because of the controversy surrounding Braff’s Kickstarter campaign. But let’s not allow that to cloud the real picture –Braff’s fans coughed up $3.1 million for his second feature film because they loved his first movie. Garden State connected with teens and college-aged twenty somethings in a manner that rarely happens, almost in the way that a song or a poem connects, rather than a movie. Fans have been waiting over a decade for Braff to go back behind the camera for a follow-up. This year at Sundance they got it.
Wish I Was Here is a real crowd pleaser, earning a standing ovation at the Premiere screening at Park City’s The Marc theatre. The film is very funny; when the lights came up I was hurting from laughter and sniffling a bit. (Must have been the cold temperature of Utah, right? Yeah that has to be the reason…) It is my favorite movie of Sundance this year (thus far).
