A new theatrical trailer for Unbroken is one of those trailer that makes you feel silly for almost crying months before the movie even comes out.
It's an excellent trailer conveying the beats of a truly remarkable life in what could very well be a great movie.
The original cinematic Jack Ryan is returning to the CIA.
Alec Baldwin is joining Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible 5.
Not content with a big action movie, the erstwhile Jack Donaghy will also appear in the NFL concussion drama starring Will Smith. As icing on this Baldwin-cake, the actor is also developing a TV show on which he'd play a Rob Ford-style mayor.
It's pretty cool that Guardians of the Galaxy is just three weeks away, but Marvel Studios is only now unveiling official images of a major character in the smartassed space opera.
That character is Yondu, the grizzled badass played by grizzled badass Michael Rooker.
Lionsgate will almost certainly roll out the first proper trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 at San Diego Comic-Con later this month.
For now, though, the studio has revealed a new teaser, a bit of mock-Panem propaganda that finds the despotic President Snow interrupted by a pirate transmission from Beetee and the rebellion.
The most groundbreaking movie of the summer is also, in many ways, the simplest.
Boyhood is a drama that looks and feels uncannily like real life, a story that eschews superheroic slugfests or city-leveling spectacle, yet is also undeniably huge. It follows one Texas family over the course of more than a decade, charting the victories, losses, and the maturation of all four family members.
Writer-director Richard Linklater (Dazed & Confused, Bernie) approached Boyhood in a totally unique way, however. In 2002, he cast six-year old unknown Ellar Coltrane as Mason, the boy of Boyhood. The writer-director then shot this film a little bit at a time over the course of twelve years, following his lead actor through childhood, adolescence, and into adulthood onscreen.
While Coltrane is the central figure, the rest of the family also grows and changes around him, helping to form him as a person. Patricia Arquette (True Romance, NBC's Medium) and Ethan Hawke (The Purge, Before Midnight) play Mason's parents, with the director's daughter Lorelei Linklater (Waking Life) as Samantha, his sister.
IAR was recently on hand at the Boyhood press day in Los Angeles, where Richard Linklater, along with Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke, discussed the process of making a film piecemeal over twelve years, working with Coltrane and Linklater as they grew up, how Boyhood captures the rhythms of life as it's actually lived, and the possibility of a sequel years from now.
The teaser trailer for Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings includes huge battles, Biblical plagues, and even a quick look at the parting of the Red Sea.
But the focus of this first look at footage makes it clear that Exodus is fundamentally the story of two brothers, once close and now at war with one another.
Despite what he's declared over the last few years, Kevin Smith has not, in fact, retired from moviemaking.
In fact, his next movie, Tusk, sounds like the most interesting thing Smith's done in quite a while. It's a unique little horror story that sounds like riff on Misery, except way, way weirder.
Bad Robot has officially confirmed that Star Wars: Episode VII will boast jumbo-sized footage caught with real IMAX cameras.
And with that, George Lucas's franchise proves to be even more an exception to its creator's passion for digital photography.
A lot of directors get called visionaries these days, but very few of these young upstarts can lay claim to the title the way Terry Gilliam can.
The first domestic trailer for his upcoming The Zero Theorem is a reminder of this fact. There's simply no one else who could make such a Gilliamesque movie. By which we mean to say that The Zero Theorem looks delightfully and confoundingly batshit.
Greasing the chute for today's reveal of the first teaser trailer, 20th Century Fox has unveiled three posters for Exodus: Gods and Kings, Ridley Scott's take on one of the most epic stories ever told.
That's not all, either, as the trio of posters is accompanied by four images showing off new looks at Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, and even John Turturro.
