Disney officially opened the floodgates with yesterday's mega-trailer, starting a two-month torrent of Avengers: Age of Ultron promotion.
Between now and May 1st, you're going to get positively pummeled by hype for the sequel to the second biggest movie of all time (not adjusted for inflation). It might get old in about a month, but right now, you're riding high from that trailer, foaming at the mouth eager for every shred of Marvel action available.
There's suddenly a whole lot more of it, because a bumper crop of tantalizing Avengers: Age of Ultron behind the scenes videos have arrived online.
A lot of fans are skeptical about Toy Story 4.
Beyond representing a high water mark for the series, Toy Story 3 felt like an ending. The last stretch was a cathartic emotional crotch-kicking, a devastating yet graceful farewell to old friends.
So plenty of folks are awaiting the June 16, 2017 release of Toy Story 4 with excitement but also trepidation, wondering if maybe this might be one too many trips to the toy box, a cash-in retread that could besmirch their fond memories of Woody, Buzz, and the gang.
Based on some new story-nuggets revealed by Pixar president Jim Morris make it clear, however, that Toy Story 4 zigs in a new direction rather than zagging back to Toy Story 3.
Cannes. Sundance. Venice. Federman.
These are the cream of the film festival crop. While you might be more familiar with the first three, none of those world-famous fests allow some of the world's finest stand-up comedians to personally select and present their favorite classic movies.
So obviously the Wayne Federman Film Festival is superior to any and all other film festivals.
Having established his fest the past three years running, Federman is back for the 4th Annual Wayne Federman Film Festival, which is set to feature comedians like Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat), Will Forte (The Last Man on Earth), Lauren Lapkus (Jurassic World), and Paul Scheer (The League) pairing stand-up and Q&A's with films such as Klown, MacGruber, Big, and Ghostbusters, just to name a few.
A quartet of posters for this year's Peanuts movie keep it simple, sticking to the classic appeal of Charlie Brown, Snoopy (Woodstock, too), Lucy, and Linus.
Thanks to an international trailer and poster, you can get your first real looks at Dark Places and bone up on remedial French at the same time.
Dark Places is based on the bestseller by Gillian Flynn, the novelist behind Gone Girl. Like last year's twisted sensation, this thriller is darker than the inside of a coffin on a moonless prairie night.
Ever since Emma Watson joined Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast, the big question has been just who would play the Beast to her Belle.
Who—who, we cried to the heavens, who?!— could possibly play the hairy bad boy whose inner prince is brought out by Watson's girl most peculiar? Disney has found the man for the job, casting Dan Stevens as the other titular character in Beauty and the Beast.
That's not all, either: Luke Evans has also joined the big budget remake as the Beast's romantic rival, Gaston.
Is Tarsem Singh looking to shut up everyone who claims he's all style, no substance?
The first trailer for Self/Less marks the very first time in the director's career that a Singh movie hasn't immediately announced itself as a Singh movie through overblown painterly visuals, elaborate costume and set design, and strange headgear.
There are, in fact, only a couple flourishes that suggest Self/Less is from the same guy who made The Fall, The Cell, Immortals, and Mirror, Mirror.
The Saturn Awards are the only awards that matter, but the MTV Movie Awards is always a fun shindig too.
Actually, after the undue seriousness of awards season, particularly the ostentation and pomp of the Oscars, MTV's annual celebration of cinematic shenanigans tends to be a breath of fresh air, an awards show that bothers to be entertaining.
Not only that, but the MTV Movie Awards tend to hand out golden popcorn to more populist fare. This year, for example, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Fault in Our Stars, and Neighbors lead the nominees with seven nods apiece.
With two months until Avengers: Age of Ultron assembles in theaters, Marvel Studios has dropped one last trailer for the sequel to the biggest superhero movie ever.
This trailer is a humdinger, one that makes it absolutely clear Age of Ultron puts The Avengers to shame, dwarfing its predecessor in scope, spectacle, and stakes.
The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Films has announced the nominees for the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.
Awards season reached its official end with last month's orgy of pomp and circumstance, the Oscars, and you may remember that a movie slagging off superheroes won Best Picture there. But the Oscars and most of the marquee awards shows are notoriously tough on genre fare, and that's where the Saturn Awards come in.
Unlike your Oscars or Golden Globes, the Saturn Awards are meant specifically to single out excellent work in science-fiction, action/adventure, horror/thriller, and fantasy. With six "Best Picture" categories divided by genre, these are the only awards that give the likes of Edge of Tomorrow, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Guest, and Only Lovers Left Alive a fair shake.
