Antoine Fuqua is on a roll right now. Fuqua’s The Magnificent Seven remake opened strong at the box office this past weekend. The western may be another hit from Fuqua, whose three previous movies — Southpaw, The Equalizer, and Olympus Has Fallen — also performed well. After a few hit-or-miss movies post-Training Day, the director has been connecting with moviegoers again and again lately. We’ll soon see if audiences embrace his next project, Ice. The TV series is executive produced by Fuqua, who also directed the pilot.
Below, watch a quick Ice teaser trailer.

Sarah Wayne Callies has plenty of experience avoiding the walking dead, but her new film sends her running from dead people of a more spiritual sort. In The Other Side of the Door, she plays a mother who has lost her son in a tragic accident. In grieving desperation, she turns to a supernatural ritual that will allow her to speak to her son through a portal located in an ancient temple.
The only catch? She’s not to open that door, no matter what happens. Of course, that’s exactly what she does, and now the balance between life and death is all topsy-turvy. Watch The Other Side of the Door trailer after the jump. Read More »
For some reason, there’s an influx of tennis comedies on the horizon. We just got a peek at HBO’s sports mockumentary 7 Days in Hell starring Andy Samberg and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington and now another comedy from the courts has just debuted a trailer.
Break Point stars Jeremy Sisto (Clueless) and David Walton (About a Boy) as two estranged brothers who attempt a comeback in each of their own lives by uniting to play in a grand slam tennis tournament. The sports setting is merely a backdrop for self-discovery, but it’s not everyday that this happens on the tennis court, so this might be worth seeing. Watch the Break Point trailer after the jump!

Even when James Cameron doesn’t have a new film in theaters, he’s not far from the headlines. This year saw the 3D re-release of his record-breaking 1997 success Titanic, which pushed the movie’s total gross over two billion dollars. Between that and Avatar, just two of Cameron’s movies have made him more of an economic power than many small countries.
With Titanic hitting DVD this week, Cameron is out stumping for the movie once again, and he’s being asked about his view of the film that challenged his earnings records earlier this summer: The Avengers. Read More »

Waitress is a movie you would like a lot, but you have no desire to see. The film first premiered at Sundance and was a huge hit. Fox Searchlight bought it (hint: they buy the good films – Napoleon Dynamite, Garden State and a small film called Little Miss Sunshine), and they’ve been holding tons of sneak preview screenings throughout the country. And guess what? People love it. I have yet to find one person who didn’t. Surprisingly, even guy-guys love it. Still not sold? Check out some of the video clips after the jump.

Andy Griffith (old Joe) tells Keri Russell her horoscope for the day.
Fox Searchlight seems to have the Sundance purchase down. Last year they bought Little Miss Sunshine. Two years earlier, the studio picked up Garden State and Napoleon Dynamite. This year the studio went crazy and made four purchases: The Savages, Joshua, Once and Waitress. Unfortunately I’ve only seen one of the four films (Joshua, which has good horror/thriller appeal). We waited in line for two hours to see Waitress (that was the film will all the buzz) and we still didn’t get in. But everyone totally dug this flick (it currently has an 8.2 imdb rating), so I’m pretty sure this will be Searchlight’s Sundance 2007 breakout film. So while you might not think you want to see this movie yet, chances are you will. Be an early adopter, here is your chance.
Anyway, we’ve previously posted the theatrical trailer, and now comes a set of nine production photos. As always, left click for a better view.
