Five years ago we saw how truly weird and dark Jake Gyllenhaal could get when he teamed up with writer-director Dan Gilroy for the twisted 2014 thriller Nightcrawler, which gave a thought-provoking condemnation of the ambulance-chasing tabloid industry.
Now, Gyllenhaal, Gilroy, and Nightcrawler co-star Rene Russo reunite for what looks to be a darkly satirical indictment of yet another niche field: the contemporary art world. Velvet Buzzsaw is a horror-thriller starring Gyllenhaal as a pretentious art critic who soon becomes targeted by killer art pieces. Yes, you read that right. See the first Velvet Buzzsaw trailer below.

In what could have easily been a silly comedy about age difference and being old in a modern world, Nancy Meyers‘ latest effort The Intern actually looks like a surprising, charming and even touching tale of friendship when two people need it most.
A new trailer for The Intern has just popped up giving us a new look at the film which sees Robert De Niro playing a retired 70-year old widower trying to fill a hole in his life. And his latest attempt is taking an intern position at an online fashion site founded by Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway). Watch The Intern trailer after the jump! Read More »
Nightcrawler stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a guy who discovers that his intense work ethic and lightweight moral sense combine to make him a talent in the field of shooting bottom-feeding TV news. Initially unsuccessful in his job hunt, a chance encounter with a news team led by Bill Paxton leads Gyllenhaal’s character to start gathering news on his own… and perhaps even tweaking it a bit, as this new Nightcrawler trailer suggests. The film was recently moved to an October 31 opening; see the new trailer below. Read More »
Our first look at the crime thriller Nightcrawler featured star Jake Gyllenhaal going through a few permutations of a job pitch to an unseen person — and despite that potentially dull setup, it was a strange, riveting piece of film thanks to Gyllenhaal’s performance. Now there’s a longer Nightcrawler trailer that shows us a lot more of Gyllenhaal’s character as he combs the nighttime streets of LA looking for lurid news. And even though we see a lot more, this trailer still leaves a lot of questions.
I love this new look at the film, and each new thing we learn about the movie helps it climb to a higher spot on the “must watch” list. Check out the Nightcrawler teaser trailer below.

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting pretty excited to see Thor: The Dark World. Where I felt the first Thor was just okay, after the character’s emergence in The Avengers, along with the blossoming of his evil brother Loki, the prospect of seeing them both on the big screen again is quite exciting. And it’s coming soon. Thor: The Dark World, directed by Alan Taylor, opens November 8.
Today, a whole bunch of brand new still images only add to that excitement. In them, you get a much closer look at Christopher Eccleston‘s bad guy Malekith the Accursed, some sweeping scenery and a few new glimpses of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Rene Russo, Natalie Portman, Kat Dennings, Jaimie Alexander and more to boot. Check them out below. Read More »

Marvel Studios and Paramount will be unleashing Thor upon the world in just under two months — the film opens on May 6 — and we could well see another chunk or two of the film released to the public before opening day. In the meantime, check out the French trailer for the film, which offers a couple of very slight new visions that didn’t make it into the last couple domestic trailers. Read More »
In late July we saw a leaked version of the Comic Con trailer for Thor. The very unofficial release spread like wildfire, but Marvel Studios managed to scrub it away from many corners of the web.

Well, this image shows two of the Warriors Three from Kenneth Branagh‘s Thor: on the right side of the steps are Fandral the Dashing (Josh Dallas) and Hogun the Grim (Tadanobu Asano). At the very far right, you can just see what I guess is the right leg of Volstagg the Valiant (Ray Stevenson).
This is the same image that arrived via the LA Times over the weekend, but now in high-res. You can see a lot more detail in the armor and helmet of Loki (Tom Hiddleston, on the left in the green cape), and in the costumes for Fandral, Hogun, Frigga (Rene Russo), and Odin (Anthony Hopkins). You can even make out better detail on Huginn and Muninn, Odin’s two ravens that are perched atop his throne. Those ravens are Thought and Memory, in case you needed a little Asgardian refresher. Hit the jump for the full version, and for a high-res version of the Thor and Odin photo from EW. Read More »
