There have been a lot of shows and movies about corrupt, broken down cops trying to make amends for their dirty deeds, but have any of those movies and shows paired the cop with an imaginary friend? No, they absolutely have not. But Happy! does exactly that. The new Syfy series adapts a graphic novel from Grant Morrison, and the first twisted trailer has just dropped to give you a sense of the lunacy on display. Watch the Happy series trailer below.

In recent years, Bruce Willis has been sleepwalking his way through a lot of action thrillers. That’s truly a shame since we know he’s still capable of doing great work in movies like Looper and Moonrise Kingdom. Sadly, a new bank heist movie called Marauders doesn’t appear to be one of his better choices, even if the story does have some intriguing elements to it.
Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: SVU), Adrian Grenier (Entourage) and Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy) play the FBI agents investigating a recent bank robbery, and while evidence points to the bank’s owner (Bruce Willis) being involved, there’s much more to the case than meets the eye.

You know that delightful little moment in movies when the title of the film is said out loud by one of the main characters? Well, this I Am Wrath trailer takes the cake in that regard, because Chuck Russell‘s thriller literally places the title of the film on actor John Travolta‘s back. Travolta’s back tat is one of the final images we see in the I Am Wrath trailer — and there couldn’t possibly have been a better note to end on.

Last weekend, the prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp arrived on Netflix, flashing back to a time before the events of the Sundance selected cult favorite comedy, but with the exact same cast playing younger versions of themselves despite having aged almost 25 years.
Well, today a new behind the scenes documentary called Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot American Summer has been released going behind the scenes of Wet Hot American Summer as it was being shot in the year 2000. It’s an hour-long look at the making of the movie with the entire cast appearing on candidly recorded home video, and it looks like a fantastic and entertaining time capsule from the trailer that was just unveiled.

Shailene Woodley rocked the Sundance Film Festival last year with James Ponsoldt’s lovely The Spectacular Now, and she’ll hope to do the same next year with Gregg Araki‘s White Bird in a Blizzard. Based on a 1999 novel of the same title by Laura Kasischke, the drama stars Woodley as a teenager whose life is thrown into chaos by the mysterious disappearance of her mother (Eva Green).
While most Sundance films haven’t released much more than a still image, if that, White Bird in a Blizzard has just put out its first trailer. Check it out after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The story of Jackie Robinson is one of the most important stories in sports history, but it is also one of the most important social stories of the 20th century. As the first black ballplayer in Major League Baseball, Robinson became one of the focal points at an early stage in the ever-evolving shift in American race relations. Which is to say that he was subjected to the same scorn, intimidation, and attacks as many other black men and women, but on a much larger scale.
The first full trailer for 42 is a dramatic, energetic thing, but it is also infuriating. It recreates some of our worst behavior in broad strokes, and even if the actions seen here are dramatically enhanced, the core attitudes and behavior have an inarguable basis in history. And while 42 sports Harrison Ford grumping and growling his way through some pretty impressive makeup, there’s enough of a sense of reality in this footage to make the intimidation of Robinson (played by Chadwick Boseman) have serious impact. Presumably, that will also make his eventual victory and acceptance pay off with the power of a grand slam. Read More »
Briefly: Very few things about filming a Robert Rodriguez movie are similar to your standard, effects-laden blockbuster. Case in point: his October 2013 film Sin City: A Dame To Kill For. The sequel to the 2005 film brings back most of the cast of the original (such as Jessica Alba and Mickey Rourke) with several new additions. The movie has been filming in Rodriguez’s Austin studios for several months. As usual, Rodriguez does everything in house and on his own.
Production is now coming back from a holiday break and even though much of the film has already been shot, major casting continues. Monday, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was revealed to be joining the film and Tuesday, Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Man of Steel) joined the cast. Beyond the fact that the character is a cop we aren’t sure exactly who he’s playing, but the role is said to be one of the leads. [Deadline]
Update: Josh Brolin has been confirmed to play Dwight, the character played in Sin City by Clive Owen. Details of that are after the break. Read More »
