When you add just the right music to a trailer, it can really spice things up.
Such is the case of the latest trailer from Marvel UK for Ant-Man. The music seems to put a whole new spin on things, as does the reveal of Scott's line upon hearing that he's needed to be the Ant-Man..."I think our first move should be calling the Avengers."
Does anybody have line delivery like Paul Rudd?
Just hearing him say that brings this whole thing into giddy focus. Rudd's going to be a super hero for goodness sakes! He's really paid his dues and deserves this. The more they slowly reveal of Scott Lang and the Ant-Man, the more it sinks in that it's his turn.
Another thing of note, am I the only one who likes international trailers a whole lot more than those from the U.S.? The U.S. trailers tend to put such a dour spin on things, honing in on Lang's past as a criminal and that he has to revisit it to become a hero, while in Japan the focus was on fatherhood and here it's just plain fun.
Maybe it's just me.
Like most people, I didn't see Box of Moonlight when it was in the theater, but I was lucky enough to catch it upon its initial release on DVD. It's an absolute gem of a film about a man who tries to do everything just right, by the book, but suddenly realizes that particular outlook on life has left him without any joy in his own life, nor has he managed to pass on the ability to enjoy the smaller things to his son.
Luvven Coddle: I sense a, a yearning in you. A, a searching, almost, as if you're lost. You've been lost for a long, long time. Am I right? You found Jesus, Al.
Al Fountain: Why? Is he missing?
Al Fountain (John Turturro) is married with a young son. He's a construction engineer who has to go away for business very near the Independence Day holiday. His son just wants fireworks and for dad to come home to celebrate and barbeque, but Al calls every night to make sure he's doing his math homework. Their wires are crossed.
When Al's job is suddenly shuttered, instead of going directly home, something snaps and he remembers being a boy, visiting Splatchee Lake. At Splatchee, he was carefree and life had promise. He wants to go back.
Instead his car breaks down and he meets the Kid (Sam Rockwell), an adult who is the polar opposite of Al in every way. He dresses like Daniel Boone for some reason and lives in half of a trailer, retrofitted into the woods with string lights and furniture, eating Oreo cookies as a meal replacement. He's an enigma to Al.
The Kid and Al strike up an easy and interesting friendship, one that surprises them both. Al learns from the Kid and the Kid learns from Al. They meet women (Catherine Keener and Lisa Blount), swim naked in ponds, get into tomato battles and revisit the factory Al was building for a little payback for a job unfinished.
There are sparklers, fireworks and the theme of July 4th bolsters the entire production. It's the perfect summer holiday to remember what it was like to be a kid and try to recapture your innocence and the little devil inside. Turturro and Rockwell are both quirky and play off each other really well, but don't go overboard, something that could have happened considering their characters. Instead, you come to love each equally, genuinely hoping their friendship lasts.
Does Al make it to Splatchee? Does it matter? Well, I will tell you there is a box of moonlight to be found, but how or what it is remains part of the beauty of this film. Just watch. I've been recommending this film by word of mouth for almost 20 years. I'm going bigger now.
If you've ever wondered if it's too late for you to reclaim the magic in your life, Box of Moonlight reminds you it's never too late. There is always a new road to take and a new face in the crowd if you just slow down long enough to explore your options.
Why not give it a try? You can watch Box of Moonlight online right now. It's well worth it! If you watch, please come on back and let me know what you think. What's your Splatchee Lake?
Jerry Weintraub, who produced the Oceans films (Ocean Eleven, Twelve and Thirteen) as well as The Karate Kid, among others, died at his home in Palm Springs of a heart attack.
Weintraub has been in Hollywood for years, producing megastars such as Frank Sinatra and Neil Diamond, and winning multiple Emmy Awards, including one for the recent HBO movie Behind the Candelabra about the life of Liberace, starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon.
Weintraub is survived by his wife of 50 years, Jane Morgan.
At the time, Can't Buy Me Love made Amanda Peterson just as iconic as her co-star, Patrick Dempsey. Together, they rode off to what we assume was eternal happiness on a riding mower, her with her hat in her hand, a big smile on her face.
Amanda Peterson died in her home at the age of 43, her family reports.
Peterson had retired from acting some years ago and was living in Greely, Colorado. She was last heard from on July 3, and her body was discovered on July 5 after her family became concerned.
There has been no determination of cause of death at this time, although her family notes she had suffered from bouts of pneumonia, sinusitis and sleep apnea over the years, which may have played a part. "She had some illness and a sleep apnea problem that may have contributed," her father said.
Peterson's last role was in a family movies titled Wildrunner in 1994 with Margo Kidder and Jake Busey.
How do you go from defending your country to being on the run from it?
Remember Edward Snowden? He's the guy who sold classified information from the NSA to The Guardian. This could very well be one of the best thrillers of the year.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt takes the reigns as Edward Snowden and we have no doubt he'll be able to pull the role off, but it sure is the last role we'd expect him in, so consider us intrigued.
Then again, we never expected him to play the character he did in Don Jon. Let's just say that he is a highly versatile actor.
Of course there are some other well-known stars attached to this film, including Shailene Woodley, Nicolas Cage and even Zachary Quinto.
Is it Christmas yet?
If you were looking forward to Masterminds, the film starring Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis and Owen Wilson about a successful multi-million dollar robbery gone horribly awry, then you're going to have to put a cap on it.
Relativity Media has been facing financial woes, and amidst its restructuring has decided to push the comedy back from its original August 19 premiere date to October 9, when stiff comedic competition will be less fierce.
The company has issued this statement:
Relativity Studios has rescheduled the release of its next film Masterminds to October 9, 2015, to allow the company to focus on its recapitalization and give this film the proper attention and support it deserves.
Rescheduling the premiere should give Vacation plenty of time to lose a little steam and make room for another large comedy to join the ranks.
Are you tired of waiting for the official trailer for SUICIDE SQUAD? We know we are! Nerdist has set out to try and whet our appetite for the star studded movie by making their own version of a trailer which seems to think it has everything we expect to see.
The trailer has a similar looking cast to what we will be watching when the movie hits theaters in August 2016. Ever since that first image appeared online of Jared Leto in his role, we have been clamoring for more details about this movie. They are trying to keep everything under wraps and that's only making us want more!
Have a look at the trailer and hit the comments and let us know what you WANT to see in the official one!
The end is nigh.
Katniss' story will conclude later this year, but it hasn't stopped Lionsgate from teasing us and this Comic-Con trailer is just cruel. You might be expect some fight sequences, but this is pretty much a dance recital.
Yes, Katniss appears in the front and she's dressed in red. Could this be a sign to expect a lot of death in the final movie? Probably, but we still want to see some real footage from the movie and we'd dance for it!
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth reprise their roles from the first three movies for the last hurrah.
How will it all end? Be there in November 2015 to find out!
Let's be honest, it's hard to tell by watching this trailer that this woman named Joy found this exciting life by creating the Miracle Mop.
Yet that's exactly what's on tap for the third film pairing up star Jennifer Lawrence with Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle). Joy Mangeno, a single mother of three, became a successful business woman after creating the Miracle Mop. From the looks of this amazing trailer, that's hardly the tip of her life story.
Here's the official synopsis:
JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces.
Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Are you on board with this one? Let us know in the comments.
Digging for Fire features a lot of the same cast found in Joe Swanberg's 2013 film Drinking Buddies, including co-writer Jake Johnson.
Rosemarie DeWitt stars as Johnson's wife in this take of a husband and wife who have different adventures after he digs up a gun and a bone in their backyard. As you do.
As a fan of Drinking Buddies, it's nice seeing a lot of that cast join in here, including Anna Kendrick and Ron Livinston. Other familiar faces include Orlando Bloom, Sam Rockwell, Brie Larson, Mike Birbiglia and Sam Rockwell.
This genre, whatever it's called, when a rather eclecic group of people get together for one or two nights to discuss life can be hit or miss, but when you're tossing out lines like, "Yeah, there's garbage in the ground. If you dig far enough, you'll find a landfill," you can't miss, right?
Digging for Fire premiered at Sundance in January, is directed by Swanberg and written by him and Johnson. Take a look at the trailer now, and let us know what you think!
What's all the fuss about The Revenant, you ask? As if the scope of the film about a man on a quest for vengeance in the 1800s against the men who left him for dead after a bear mauling isn't enough, and the cast featuring two of todays best actors (we're looking at you Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy) doesn't blow you away, the cinematographer is filming the entire thing with natural lighting.
Say what?! Apparently they've been filming this epic adventure for the last six months without the aid of lighting equipment of any kind. If you're a movie buff of any kind and that alone doesn't draw you to the theater, then...what the hell?
The official write up of what to expect is below. The teaser trailer does something interesting. It produces excitement with the sound of DiCaprio's characters breathing enhanced throughout. It gives the entire experience a sense of urgency. Well done!
The Revenant | Official Teaser Trailer: Inspired by true events, THE REVENANT is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit. In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy). Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption. THE REVENANT is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award® winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel).

Sadly, we aren't all flying around on hoverboards or wearing self-closing shoes, but we have still made it to 2015. And while Jaws 19 wasn't playing in theaters, it did make it's own reappearance in theaters this summer in honor of it's 40th anniversary.
Wednesday, October 21, 2015 is the day Marty McFly landed in the future in Back to the Future II to save his family. On that day there will be a splashy new Blu-Ray release of the entire Back to the Future trilogy in a nifty light-up flux capacitor case, as well as a special showing of all three of the movies in select theaters nationwide to honor the 30th anniversary of the first film.
Is that a great date for all of this to go down, or what?
Included in the Blu-Ray release will be a 64-page book, a vinyl soundtrack and the entire Back to the Future animated series, among a host of other extras.
You can keep an eye on the official Back to the Future website for updates on where the trilogy will be playing and to get your tickets. I went to the Jaws showing that had two dates and multiple times and the theaters were packed. Something tells me this trilogy is going to be an event that sells out fast!
Are you going to be there? Surely the only thing that could keep you away would be a job (yes, we all have them) or sitting at home in front of the comfort of your 55 inch LED TV watching the Blu-Ray set. Am I wrong?!
I gotta be honest, I have a love hate relationship with both of American Ultra's stars. Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart (Twilight) can both be brilliant and grating at times.
It appears that when put together in a comedy, we're going to get brilliant performances out of them both.
Eisenberg plays Mike Howell, who is a sleeper agent activated while working at a mini-mart, suddenly capable of taking out two other agents with merely a spoon he was prepared to use for his cup-o-noodles. His girlfriend Phoebe wonders, "Why are people trying to stab you?" to which he responds, "I don't know, but I'm like freaking out. I have a lot of anxiety about this."
There are times when Stewart can seem a little too unemotional, but playing a stoner thrust into these bizarre cirumstances, the trailer indicates she's hitting all the right notes. The same with Eisenberg. His anxiety-ridden, spoon-wielding, suddenly-activated sleeper agent seems to be written just for him. This opinion, of course, comes off of a recent viewing of The Double, so I'm a bit heavy on Eisenberg at the moment!
Other stars in American Ultra include Connie Britton, John Leguizamo, Topher Grace, Bill Pullman and Walter Goggins.
American Ultra will be released on August 21.
The first time I watched the first official trailer for The Good Dinosaur, I was just in awe of it's beauty.
The second time I watched, I couldn't help but get a lump in my throat and genuine tears welled in my eyes. What the heck? Yes, the trailer is that good. Just imagine how good the whole movie will be!
In the alternate world in which the movie takes place, dinosaurs weren't wiped off the face of the earth. Arlo, an orphaned Apatosaurus meets a little human boy named Spot and the two set off on a series of adventures.
The theme, as set by the trailer, is that a single moment, a single kindness, can change everything. That idea alone, as all encompassing as it is, so simple and pure, is enough to make your heart swell three times its normal size, isn't it?
Voices in the movie include Raymond Ochoa, Jack Bright as Spot, Jeffrey Wright, Steve Zahn, Anna Paquin, Sam Elliott and Francs McDormand.
Waste no more time reading. Watch the splendor unfold before you now!
Fiery explosions! Emotionally-charged shouted speeches! Jennifer Lawrence’s withering, hardened gaze as she stares off into the distance!
You guessed it – the very first full length trailer for Mockingjay Part 2 has finally arrived, after weeks of anticipation, speculation, and torturously brief teasers released by Lionsgate.
“The game is coming to its end,” intones President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the epic new trailer just released for the final installment of The Hunger Games saga, and so too is this beloved film franchise.
It’s been a long, harrowing journey for our hero Katniss (to say the least) and the trailer highlights the position of leadership that she’s both fallen into and risen up to. There’s a glimpse of a Peeta-Katniss kiss (the first in too long a while!) and we hear Katniss give a rousing speech imploring the rebels to turn their weapons against the oppressive Capitol and the villainous President Snow.
The trailer definitely has a "closing time" feel, as the many plot points at play throughout the previous three films are speeding along toward their respective conclusions. How will the Katniss/Peeta/Gale triangle finally resolve? Will Katniss and the rebels successfully assassinate President Snow?
Mockingjay Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and Donald Sutherland. It hits theaters on November 20th.
It's not a surprise to anyone that Jurassic World is coming back, but we have an official date out of Universal.
Mark your calendars for June 22, 2018! Whatever dinosaurs were left roaming the island, be they friend or foe, will be doing something to entertain us. They'll be doing it with the charismatic Chris Pratt and plucky Bryce Dallas Howard right along side, them, as well.
Honestly, we'll be there, hoping for a slightly better storyline the second time around, one that meets the expectations set by the technical wizardry.
Surely if they can breathe life into dinosaurs and man-made hybrids with such authenticity, a personality and an outfit can be crafted for Bryce Dallas Howard's character.
She deserves at least that for shooting myriad jungle scenes and running more than any living human ever has in a pair of heeled pumps, right?
Bring it, Universal!!
I hadn't watched It Follows until now because, frankly, I had no idea it existed until just the other day. That's just one downfall of living under a rock and still hoping to find great horror films that have little publicity to begin with – I digress.
If sex before marriage resulted in constant stalking by a non-threateningly slow, yet still somehow terrifying figure, I'm pretty sure everyone would still be doing it. It's too bad in this case the recipient of the nightmarish virus-being didn't know that her life would essentially be ruined forever until after making the prurient decision – but I guess that's always the case with these kinds of things, right?
Jay Height (Maika Monroe) is a carefree college student living in Michigan, and it's the classic story of girl meets boy, boy convinces girl to do something before she's ready, girl winds up with a paranormal creature that's destined to follow her the rest of her life unless she's willing to continue the cycle and pass it onward – by sleeping with someone new, how else? So her jerk boyfriend Hugh (Jake Weary) knocks her out with chloroform (no mention of where he got such a controlled substance, of course), ties her up, and shows Jay her grim fate before dropping her off – in her skivvies no less – and leaves town now that the weight is off his shoulders.
Now poor Jay – with the help of her sister and a few friends (all of which are seemingly in love with her, which is significant to show I guess?) – grapples with logic and ethics as she tries to figure out how to pass the sinister torch.
It could look like someone you know or it could be a stranger in a crowd. Whatever helps it get close to you.Huge
In this glaringly indie film, there's promiscuous sex, slow-burning and well planned out fear, and surprisingly great acting coming from this relatively green cast list. The cinematography is phenomenal, which probably serves to cover the fact that nothing really happens, although that isn't always a bad thing. It works well in stories like The Babadook, where the development of plot and characters is entirely more important for the scare-factor than the monster figure anyway, who is an ancillary specter at its best.
With It Follows, the main character's innocence is all but drained, and the comparison of her doom to the continued normal lives of her friends (not the one Jay sleeps with though, It gets him, and resumes its pursuit of her again almost just as immediately) becomes an overarching theme. Her apparently less attractive, less liked sister and their sea shell reading friend are in the background as clear support characters, and it winds up being secondary character Paul (Keir Gilchrist) that evolves beside Jay.
It's true what they say; love is blind, and it has the power to make us do very, very stupid things.
Pleasantly lit, seemingly safe suburban environments turn sinister in this slow-burn type of horror film that doesn't crutch itself on cheap scares and overabundant gore, and because of that it's the psyche thriller type that really lasts. Just as we start to believe things are ok – really let our hair down – BAM, the arcane form is back again, not necessarily doing anything but being all the more terrifying because of it.
And as soon as I thought I'd figured everything out, I realize maybe there was no figuring it out. For instance, is it really the rule that sex passes the mystery-thing? The only way we know this is because Hugh says it to Jay (after assault and battery, but whatever), but are we sure he has the whole story?
That's what I liked about It Follows. It's an original idea that doesn't take itself too seriously. What's so horrific about it is that you don't know what's so horrific about it. It doesn't hold your hand and tell you its evil plan, it just follows you, an insidious – often really gross looking – entity. And slowly, but surely, when you're alone in the dark or casually lounging on the beach, it'll get you. Somehow, someway, It's always following.
And the most terrible agony may not be in the wounds themselves but in knowing for certain that within an hour, then within 10 minutes, then within half a minute, now at this very instant -- your soul will leave your body and you will no longer be a person, and that this is certain. The worst thing is that it is certain.Yara
Looks like we'll be waiting another four months for Midnight Special!
This first major studio production from indie favorite Jeff Nichols (who directed the earlier critically-acclaimed Grand Prix recipient Mud) was originally slated for a Thanksgiving 2015 release. The film was bumped back to a March 18, 2016 release date by Warner Bros.
Midnight Special, described by writer/director Nichols as a "sci-fi chase" film inspired by John Carpenter, wrapped filming and has been lingering in post-production as of early 2014.
The film stars Michael Shannon as a father who discovers that his young son possesses supernatural powers and consequently flees with him, dodging a religious sect led by Sam Shepard and a government agency headed by Adam Driver.
The 40th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) has made public its first batch of films – and it's quite the line-up!

Sony Pictures Entertainment – the studio that sort of almost gave us The Interview– is spreading some holiday cheer this Christmas with The Night Before, Jonathan Levine's star-studded new holiday comedy.
Three ride-or-dies homies who have spent fourteen Christmases together are finally calling it quits (everyone's gettin' all old and sh*t) with one last hoorah at an epic New York Christmas party. Given that it's a film starring Seth Rogen (Pineapple Express), naturally there is explicit content it the way of illegal drugs, language that would make even a sailor bat his eye, and probably some nudity because let's face it, Miley Cyrus.
If Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't enough to bring you in on his own, maybe Anthony Mackie, Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, or – you know – Kanye will do the trick.
If The Night Before is anything like Neighbors or This is the End, I'm prepared to roll my eyes and laugh 'til I can't breathe this holiday season. Rogen sums it up best with his tweet of the trailer:
The perfect thing to wake you up from that turkey coma!
