Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising?
This week we get secluded on an island with Gerard Butler, try to get away with murder, watch as Ferris Beuller becomes a mensch, see what a paycheck looks like, and try to survive Hannibal Lecter. Read More »
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been craving a good tornado movie. Not something dumb with sharks or whatever, but something that at least tries to be realistic and scary. That craving is so bad, I get legitimately excited when Twister is on TV. Well, thank the clouds, New Line’s upcoming tornado film Into the Storm is almost here.
Directed by Steven Quale (Avatar), it stars Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and Sarah Wayne Callies (The Walking Dead) in the story of what happens to a small town when one of the worst storms ever hits. It opens August 8 and you can get a great look at the scope of the carnage in this new trailer. Watch the latest Into the Storm trailer below. Read More »

Final Destination isn’t the kind of franchise that surprises — if you’ve seen any of the four previous installments, you probably already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Final Destination 5. We were treated to a 3-D clip from the upcoming film, showing that scene familiar from any Final Destination movie: the moment when one of the characters has a horrifying vision of death, prompting him to get off the airplane / highway / roller coaster / stands / bus just before it comes true. Read details of the footage after the jump.

We’ve been getting a lot of casting info about Final Destination 5, which James Cameron protege Steven Quale is soon directing. Emma Bell from Frozen and The Walking Dead is signing on as the female lead.
She’ll join P.J. Byrne, Tony Todd, David Koechner, Meghan Ory, Nicholas D’Agosto, Ellen Wroe, Arlen Escarpeta and Miles Fisher when the film shoots in Vancouver later this month. Expect more antics in which death stalks people, who end up expiring in rather extravagent ways. [Arrow in the Head]
After the break, Ted Danson hates whales, and Jon Hamm partners up with his real-life wife. Read More »
Over the past week there has been some casting movement on 5nal Destination, aka the fifth Final Destination movie. We haven’t reported some of it because, well, the movie was called 5nal Destination. And after the last couple films in the series, mustering up enthusiasm for this one is difficult. (Though there might be some reason to hope for a better outcome this time. More on that in a moment.)
Now, in addition to a couple more names, including the returning Tony Todd and surprising addition of David Koechner, there’s vague suggestion that someone in marketing or production has come to their senses and the film could be backing away from that ridiculous title. Read More »
