Thanks to Universal Pictures, we now have a new poster for This Is 40, the upcoming comedy-drama from Judd Apatow.
Because we can't actually see how well-executed the 3D in Life of Pi while watching trailers, clips, and featurettes in tiny windows on computers or cell phones, a new official featurette tells us explicitly, in no uncertain terms, that the 3D in Life of Pi is really something.
Synopsis: Uptight and straight-laced, FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn is a methodical investigator with a reputation for excellence–and hyper-arrogance. Shannon Mullins, one of Boston P.D.’s “finest,” is foul-mouthed and has a very short fuse, and uses her gut instinct and street smarts to catch the most elusive criminals. Neither has ever had a partner, or a friend for that matter. When these two wildly incompatible law officers join forces to bring down a ruthless drug lord, they become the last thing anyone expected: buddies.
Unless Lucasfilm and Disney decide to once again drop some big Star Wars news before the day is through, we can declare this the week of Thor: The Dark World set photos. The latest crop of thoroughly unofficial images from the production have Chris Hemsworth and Christopher Eccleston surrounded by rubble and duking it out as Thor Odinson and Malekith the Accursed.
Any horror fans experiencing withdrawals since the passing of Halloween and the unofficial horror movie season are for a tiny hit of their drug of choice today, as Warner Bros. has released the first two images from The Conjuring, a small-scale tale of spookiness from James Wan.
Good news for anyone not within convenient distance of an IMAX screen: A full theatrical trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness will be attached to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on non-jumbo screens.
When Tim Burton and Robert Downey Jr. consistently express interest in a movie, particularly one with a recognizable, easy-to-sell title like, say, Pinocchio, you can bet that a studio will put some work into getting the duo to actually make said movie. In the case of Pinocchio, that involves hiring Jane Goldman to rewrite the script according to their specifications.
The first trailer for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has arrived online, and it teaches us two important lessons about putting together an effective trailer. The first: make sure you've got Jared Harris to make any exposition sound magnificent. The second: use John Murphy's Sunshine score to give the whole thing a sense of awe and coolness.
The Wolverine is nearing the end of production, and despite the shamblefest that was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, fans are starting to get enthused for a standalone adventure following Marvel's favorite adamantium-boned mutant to Japan. A new synopsis for the comic book movie keeps things vague, as is standard for any synopsis, but it does emphasize some of the themes that are getting folks riled.
American has yet to collectively gorge on turkey in order to give thanks, yet we're nonetheless inundated with Christmas-related commercials, sales, and products. Since we're already embracing the Christmas spirit with abandon, this new clip from next week's Rise of the Guardians is well-timed.
