The first full trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is here! We don’t hear Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) or Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) but we do get to see Chris Pratt as a sort of Indiana Jones/Han Solo hybrid, with a lot of great teasing shots that show off James Gunn’s huge, weird, and comic take on the galaxy. Watch below. Read More »

The first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is set to premiere later tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but we have the very first footage from the film this morning in the form of a 15-second teaser. In it, Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) asks the question that’s been on the minds of moviegoers the world over since the moment this film was announced: “Who are you?”
The Guardians never quite get around to answering the question, presumably because they’ll be doing so in the full trailer this evening, but we do get some big shiny explosions and glimpses of the star-studded cast — which includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista — in action. Watch the video after the jump.

With Mark Ruffalo moonlighting as a superhero these days, it’s easy to forget he’s one of the best actors currently working. Infinitely Polar Bear, written and directed by newcomer Maya Forbes, not only serves as a reminder of Ruffalo’s chops, it’s arguably his finest performance to date. He plays Cameron, a bipolar father of two, who is forced to solely care for the kids when his estranged wife Maggie (Zoe Saldana) goes to graduate school hoping to improve the family’s financial situation.
So you’ve got a bipolar man, barely able to keep himself together, forced to take care of two young girls when their African-American mom goes away hoping to get a white-collar job… in 1978 Boston. Yes, Infinitely Polar Bear is weighty with issues of race, economics, and gender, but Forbes deals with them carefully and thoughtfully in a hilarious, heartwarming film. Read More »
Not that they weren’t going to sign on, but it’s now official. Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana have signed on for the three sequels to James Cameron‘s Avatar. They’ll reprise their performance-capture roles as the Na’vi Jake Sully and Neytiri in films scheduled for release December 2016, 2017 and 2018. Read More »
NBC is ready to birth a new version of Rosemary’s Baby, based on the same Ira Levin novel that was adapted into Roman Polanski’s landmark film of the same name. And while this new four-hour miniseries is said to be based more on the book than the film, let’s not kid ourselves — it will be very difficult to keep Polanski’s influence from creeping in. Scott Abbott scripted this take.
In this version, Rosemary will be played by Zoe Saldana, which was announced today by Deadline. Read More »

Woody Harrelson‘s last feature role was as a time-traveling turkey in the animated family flick Free Birds, but don’t let that trick you into thinking he’s lost his edge. The new TV spot for Scott Cooper‘s Out of the Furnace has arrived, and he’s full-on terrifying in it.
The gritty drama stars Christian Bale as Russell, a steel mill worker whose Iraq vet brother Rodney (Casey Affleck) falls into the criminal underworld and eventually disappears. When the police fail to find Rodney, Russell sets out to discover the truth for himself. Check out the new video after the jump.

Miles Davis was among the most spectacular talents of the 20th century, fiery and commanding on stage, and fearless as a songwriter. He pushed jazz forward in ways that are incredible, coming from just one man. Offstage, his life was complicated, as his temper could be just as explosive as his music. He dealt with drug addiction and had complicated personal relationships with women, and with many figures in the music scene.
While Davis appeared as an actor in some minor roles (he was in Scrooged!), he has never been portrayed on screen in a major way. That will change when Don Cheadle stars as Davis in Kill the Trumpet Player, which will also mark Cheadle’s debut as a feature director. The film has been in development for years, but appears ready to shoot now, at last. Read More »
Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper returns this winter with Out of the Furnace, a crime thriller that features an all star cast including Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Forest Whitaker, Willem Dafoe, Zoë Saldana and Sam Shepard.
The first trailer made the film look great, and this new one outlines the story a bit better, so if you watch this you’ll start to know how brothers played by Bale and Affleck run afoul of a local criminal played by Harrelson, and how that sets up a conflict that will probably mess everyone up in the end.
