When 2014 began, many of us thought Jupiter Ascending would be one of the coolest films of the year. We eagerly anticipated its summer release date. As that date drew closer and closer, however, it was pretty obvious something was happening. Warner Bros. bumped the sci-fi film by Andy and Lana Wachowski to February of 2015. Was this a cry for help or just a delay for something awesome? We still don’t know. But a new Jupiter Ascending trailer might offer a clue. It’s filled with new footage that expands the scope of the film and intensity of the action even more. Check it out below along with a new poster. Read More »
The Wachowski siblings have crafted what seems to be a big, action-packed space opera in Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Sean Bean, and Eddie Redmayne. Now you can see a bit more of the action, and some additional shots of the sprawl of the Wachowskis vision of space, in the new Jupiter Ascending international trailer. Check it out below!

If Valentine’s Day (or Love Actually, or New Year’s Eve, or He’s Just Not That Into You) were reimagined as a brooding drama instead of a fluffy comedy, it might look kind of like Paul Haggis‘ Third Person. The drama follows three intersecting tales, each featuring a couple at a crossroads.
In Paris, a recently separated novelist (Liam Neeson) and a clever journalist (Olivia Wilde) are engaging in an affair. Over in Rome, an American businessman (Adrien Brody) is maybe being duped by a beautiful local (Moran Atias). And across the Atlantic, two exes (Mila Kunis and James Franco, giving us the Oz the Great and Powerful reunion we didn’t ask for) are battling over parental custody in New York City.
The first Third Person trailer has just hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.

New Yorkers aren’t exactly known for our sunny, upbeat demeanor. But even by the city’s surly standards, the character Robin Williams plays in his next movie has an attitude problem. He’s such an obnoxious jerk, in fact, that in the first Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer, he causes his doctor (played by Mila Kunis) to snap and tell him he has 90 minutes left to live.
What ensues is a mad-dash scramble to try and set things right before time is up. Williams’ Henry attempts to quickly mend his relationships with his wife (Melissa Leo), his brother (Peter Dinklage), his son (Hamish Linklater), his friends… it turns out pretty much everyone who’s met him has reason to be unhappy with him. Watch the first Angriest Man in Brooklyn trailer after the jump.

It’s the latest sci-fi spectacle from Lana and Andy Wachowski, the writer and director siblings who previously tackled the genre in The Matrix Trilogy, Speed Racer and Cloud Atlas.

The last Jupiter Ascending trailer got mixed reviews when it hit in December, with some folks rolling their eyes at the sci-fi cliches and others enchanted by the Wachowskis‘ creativity and ambition. Today a new Japanese promo has hit for the epic adventure, and while it won’t change any skeptical minds, those who loved the last one will probably be thrilled to see more.
Mila Kunis stars as the Jupiter of the title, a lowly cleaning lady down on Earth. Her life is forever changed when she’s tracked down by an albino wolf-man from outer space (Channing Tatum), because that tends to happen when one is tracked down by an albino wolf-man from outer space. Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.

The last film from Andy and Lana Wachowski, Cloud Atlas, ranged through time from centuries in our civilization’s past to thousands of years in the future. So, by comparison, the scope of their new film Jupiter Ascending, which merely flies from Chicago into deep space, seems almost restrained.
But nothing else looks restrained in the new film, which sees Channing Tatum as a sort of hybrid animal-human hunter tracking down a woman on earth (Mila Kunis) who holds the key to galactic intrigue.

Warner Bros. has something up their sleeves, but dammed if we know what it is. A poster tube has been spotted at a few major comic book stores, and in it is a very legitimate-looking poster for Wonder Twins. (The Twins are the Hanna-Barbera superhero team that’s part of the Super Friends.) The “film” stars Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis and is slated for a 2014 release. Here’s the kicker. This is not a real movie. So what the heck is the poster for and why is it arriving at comic book shops? Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The omnibus film Tar is based on the life and work of poet C.K. Williams, but the real attraction of the film is the cast. Jessica Chastain, James Franco, Mila Kunis, Zach Braff, and Bruce Campbell are among the actors who worked with twelve new directors from NYU to create a film that acts as both biopic for Williams and an exploration of his work.

Another big Cannes premiere this year was the crime drama Blood Ties, co-written by Two Lovers director James Gray, and the first English-language film directed by Guillaume Canet (Tell No One). The film has quite a cast, and a period ’70s setting in Brooklyn, as it remakes the 2008 French thriller Les liens du sang by Jacques Maillot.
The cast includes Matthias Schoenaerts and Marion Cotillard reuniting from Rust & Bone, but the prime cast members are Clive Owen and Billy Crudup, with Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, and James Caan. The plot relies on an old conceit: two brothers on opposite sides of the law. But there’s some changing of sides, and the ensemble cast expands the scope of the production by involving far more people than the two brothers.
Keep in mind, the trailer is not safe for work thanks to language. Read More »
