A pair of new clips – accompanied by almost ten images – showcase the central performance of Inside Llewyn Davis, while also giving an aural taste of the delicious music-buffet in the latest from straight-up geniuses Joel and Ethan Coen.
Much like the machete-wielding death elemental whose murderous adventures it chronicles, the Friday the 13th franchise is returning from the deep of Crystal Lake with little to no explanation.
Paramount Pictures has scheduled a thirteenth Friday the 13th for March 13, 2015. Yes, that's a Friday the 13th. Dun dun dun!
It's been almost a year since Django Unchained left many a movie screen drenched in slaveholders' blood.
Since then, we've been wondering just what eccentric auteur Quentin Tarantino will get up to next. He's Quentin Tarantino, after all, so it could be damn near anything and we wouldn't be too surprised.
But, in broad terms, it's not terribly surprising at all: Tarantino is making another Western.
No one makes animated family musicals better than Walt Disney Animation Studios!
Now the company that brought you Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Peter Pan, and The Jungle Book, as well as contemporary classics such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Lion King returns with Frozen, which opens in theaters on November 27th. The film was directed by Chris Buck (Tarzan) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, Wreck-It Ralph) and is inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen.
Frozen features a sensational cast of talented voice actors and singers including Kristen Bell (Hit & Run), Idina Mendez (Enchanted), Jonathan Groff (TV’s Glee), and Josh Gad (The Internship). The story revolves around princess Anna (Bell) who is forced to team up with Kristoff (Goff), his reindeer sidekick Sven, and a snowman named Olaf (Gad), on an epic journey to find Anna's sister Queen Elsa (Mendez), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom in an eternal winter. The film also includes soon-to-be classic songs from Tony Award-winner Robert Lopez (The Book of Mormon), and his wife Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Winnie the Pooh).
I recently had an opportunity to sit down with directors Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee to talk about their work on Frozen. The animated filmmakers discussed their new movie, pitching the idea to Walt Disney Animation Studios chief creative officer John Lasseter, their research, the animation process, creating the story and characters, casting, the music, how the film falls in the tradition of Walt Disney animated musicals, and which classic Disney animated films helped inspire the movie.
Will Paul Greengrass be the guy to finally make The Stand into the epic motion picture event that Warner Bros. and CBS Films are dreaming of?
Too early to say with any authority.
Apparently, though, he's at the top of the directorial wishlist to tackle Stephen King's humdinger of a novel.
You turn your head for just a minute and suddenly its awards season all over again.
Film Independent has announced the full roster of nominations for the 29th Annual Independent Spirit Awards, of which 12 Years a Slave and Nebraska secured the most, with seven and six nominations apiece.
Not many theatrical trailers go behind the scenes of the film they're advertising, but a new trailer for The Boxtrolls does.
And it's better for it.
How else could we appreciate the amount of handcrafted artistry and unbelievable detail involved in this work of stop-motion animation by Laika Entertainment?
Next year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the most S.H.I.E.L.D.-heavy of Marvel's Phase 2 movies.
Since S.H.I.E.L.D. has so frequently served as the connective tissue of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many fans are expecting that some of the sequel's new players – like, say, Anthony Mackie's the Falcon or Frank Grillo's Crossbones – might stick around for future adventures.
Grillo himself is suggesting that this may very well be the case for Crossbones aka Brock Rumlow.
J.J. Abrams is one of the world's foremost practitioners of hype-fu, capable of answering seemingly any question in tantalizing fashion without actually saying anything.
As the director of the deliriously anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, Abrams is pushing these skills almost to their breaking point. While he isn't going to reveal that Watto was behind the whole thing, Abrams has provided an update on the progress of the new Star Wars, discussing the release date, working with Lawrence Kasdan, and filming in the U.K.
The latest trailer for Ben Stiller's The Secret Life of Walter Mitty remake gets points for using Queen to set up the titular Mitty's imaginative habits.
