2018 Golden Globes Nominees - 'Disaster Artist', 'Dunkirk' + 'Get Out'

Golden Globes

The list of nominations for the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards (of 2018), the yearly precursor to the Academy Awards, have just been announced today - you can find all the film nominees below. The infamous Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees this morning from The Beverly Hilton. The selection this year is interesting, but as always it's full of some weird and confusing picks, and a few snubs (like Greta Gerwig and Jordan Peele from Best Director). The top nominees are The Shape of Water with 7 noms, plus The Post and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with 6 noms each. Lady Bird and Get Out at least did get Best Film noms. Another intriguing year of picks but not that surprising for the HFPA.

Suki Waterhouse in Official Trailer for 'The Girl Who Invented Kissing'

The Girl Who Invented Kissing Trailer

"Says you're not from ’round here. Come here to make trouble?" An official trailer has arrived online for an indie drama titled The Girl Who Invented Kissing, starring up-and-coming actress Suki Waterhouse as a "nameless, pill-popping drifter girl" who steps off of a bus and into a neighborhood bar owned by two middle-age brothers. The film hasn't played at many festivals, but seems to have that indie vibe, with some mysterious twists and turns, and emotional stakes that push the plot along. The Girl Who Invented Kissing full cast includes Vincent Piazza, Dash Mihok, Abbie Cornish, Luke Wilson, Corey Large, Johnny Messner, and Michael Buscemi. This seems like a quirky, oddly sweet story and I'm not sure if the plot is about these two older guys falling for this young girl or what exactly, but it seems interesting. Check it out.

Second Trailer for Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' Starring Tye Sheridan

Ready Player One Trailer

"It's the only place that feels like I mean anything." Warner Bros has launched the new full theatrical trailer for Steven Spielberg's grand adaptation of Ready Player One, the geeky novel about a kid in the future who logs into a virtual reality world and plays games to win the ultimate prize. The first teaser trailer had a few small glimpses, but this just looks wow - totally jaw-dropping stunning. My goodness. Young actor Tye Sheridan stars as Wade Watts, known in the Oasis gaming world as "Parzival". The full cast includes Mark Rylance as the game's creator, James Halliday, as well as T.J. Miller, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Olivia Cooke, Lena Waithe, Letitia Wright, and Kae Alexander. This trailer actually makes me feel like Spielberg might've pulled this off, and I am excited to see it and experience the entire thing. I really love the footage they're showing in this, looks outstanding; and the Depeche Mode track is perfect. So can't wait.

Watch: The Moviejerk's Wonderful Best of Cinema 2017 Recap Video

The Moviejerk’s Best of Cinema 2017

"If only you knew how little I know about the things that matter…" Another year end countdown video looking back at the best movies of 2017. "The Moviejerk" has released a video called Best of Cinema: 2017 Edition that features clips from his favorite films edited together to songs from the films this year, similar to David Ehrlich's year end recap. Janz Anton-Iago is "The Moviejerk" and runs the website of the same name. He includes footage from Pablo Larraín's Jackie in this, because it was released in the UK in 2017 (even though it was released in 2016 in the US). He explains in the intro that this is more of a "video mood-piece" capturing his feelings from all the best films he saw throughout the year. It's actually worth a watch.

Kick Ass First Trailer for Animated 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse'

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Trailer

Enter a universe where more than one wears the mask. Sony Pictures recently unveiled an awesome first teaser trailer for the animated Spider-Man movie, which is now officially titled Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Yes, this is the one that is being developed by Phil Lord & Chris Miller, who wrote the script and are producing as well. And yes, this is also the Spider-Man movie that features Miles Morales, the black kid for Brooklyn, and he seems pretty damn cool. The only problem is the wait to watch this - one full year from now. Too long! I want it now! Shameik Moore (from Dope!) voices Miles, and the rest of the cast includes Liev Schreiber, Mahershala Ali, and Brian Tyree Henry. This looks really damn good, seriously, the animation style is slick but the whole thing just has a fresh, thrilling, fun vibe to it. And it doesn't even seem to tread on MCU's territory or Tom Holland as the live-action Spidey either. Bring it on.

Review: 'I, Tonya' Brilliantly Captures Darkly Comical Moment in Time

I, Tonya Review

A closeup shot of Tonya Harding's skate crushing a lit cigarette serves as a visual representation of the figure skater as a whole in I, Tonya, a biography of her life and the events that led to her controversial end in the sport. Harding was a force in the skating world: unrefined, rebellious, and unapologetic but with a raw talent that world had never seen before or since. It makes sense Harding's tenure in the figure skating world ended in controversy. I, Tonya, directed by Craig Gillespie, doesn't shy from the darker turns her life took, the film's screenplay working from rumor and the unreliable narration of the people around her. It's a stunning story, dark and comical in equal turns, and the film relays the events in splendid fashion as well as giving us a star-making turn by Australian actress Margot Robbie as the eponymous character.

Final Trailer for Wes Ball's Sci-Fi Action 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure'

Maze Runner: The Death Cure Trailer

"You can't save everyone, Thomas." "I can try." 20th Century Fox has revealed the final theatrical trailer for Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third and final movie in the sci-fi series. Director Wes Ball tweeted yesterday that this is the "last Maze Runner trailer you're ever gonna see [sic]." This sci-fi series had a small, humble beginning with a movie about a giant maze, then blew up into something much bigger with the second movie, The Scorch Trials, released in 2015, and now it concludes with an all-out, epic, action-packed grand finale. Dylan O'Brien stars as Thomas, and the cast includes Kaya Scodelario, Walton Goggins, Nathalie Emmanuel, Katherine McNamara, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rosa Salazar, Giancarlo Esposito, Patricia Clarkson, Barry Pepper, Ki Hong Lee, and Jacob Lofland. Even if you haven't been following this series so far, you might want to fire up this trailer - it looks pretty dang cool.

Must Watch: Official Trailer for Robert Rodriguez's 'Alita: Battle Angel'

Alita: Battle Angel Trailer

"It's a harsh world. The strong prey on the weak down here." Whoa. You have to see this! After almost a decade in development, Robert Rodriguez finally went off and made James Cameron's adaptation of Alita: Battle Angel, based on the popular manga series. 20th Century Fox has debuted the first trailer for Alita: Battle Angel, about a deadly cyborg humanoid named Alita, played by Rosa Salazar, who is found in a scrap heap by Dr. Dyson Ido. Rodriguez used James Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis' script that has been floating around for years, and Cameron is also a producer along with Jon Landau. So this still has the James Cameron touch (since he was originally supposed to direct), but Rodriguez is at the helm instead. The film's full cast includes Jennifer Connelly, Eiza González, Michelle Rodriguez, Christoph Waltz, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeff Fahey, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, and Casper Van Dien. Get your first look here.

Milo Ventimiglia in First Trailer for Sci-Fi Horror Thriller 'Devil's Gate'

Devil's Gate Trailer

"Some people are better off not being found." IFC Midnight has debuted the first official trailer for a sci-fi creature feature horror thriller called Devil's Gate. The title comes from the location in the film, a small town in North Dakota named Devil's Gate (which does not really exist). This starts out as your typical small town murder mystery involving various shady characters, but then turns into some crazy alien horror half-way through (the trailer) with some freaky shots. Milo Ventimiglia stars as religious fanatic Jackson Pritchard, along with Amanda Schull, Shawn Ashmore, Bridget Regan, and Jonathan Frakes. That actually seems like a cool cast for a sci-fi horror, and maybe there's some cool twists in this for horror fans to enjoy. All the creepy footage with the creature in this trailer is quite effectively scary. Check it out below.

Vintage News Reel US Trailer for 'The Death of Stalin' is Worth a Watch

The Death of Stalin Trailer

"Citizens of America, we need you to make moviegoing great again." IFC Films has debuted a unique teaser trailer for the US release of The Death of Stalin, satirist Armando Iannucci's latest film about Russian politics. This is a peculiar teaser because it's basically a fake B&W news reel talking about how the film is finally going to appear in the US in March after "first conquering Britain" (since it opened there in October). Based on Fabien Nury's graphic novel, the film is about Russian dictator Joseph Stalin's last days and the disorganized chaos of the regime after his death in 1953 and 30 years of iron-fisted rule. Adrian McLoughlin plays Stalin, with an entertaining ensemble cast of characters including Rupert Friend, Steve Buscemi, Olga Kurylenko, Jason Isaacs, Andrea Riseborough, Jeffrey Tambor, Paddy Considine, Michael Palin, and Jonathan Aris. This trailer is worth a watch just to see how unique it is.

Official Trailer for Romero Zombie Movie 'Day of the Dead: Bloodline'

Day of the Dead: Bloodline

"His brain is still working. They're learning." Saban Films has released the official red band trailer for a new zombie movie called Day of the Dead: Bloodline. This is basically a remake of the classic original George A. Romero zombie movie Day of the Dead, released in 1985, though it's being called a "reimagining." The plot is about a group of military personnel and survivalists living in an underground bunker trying to survive the zombie apocalypse. The main character is a young woman named Zoe Parker, played by Sophie Skelton, who is "tormented by a dark figure from her past" - surprise, that figure is now a zombie. The cast includes Johnathon Schaech, Jeff Gum, Marcus Vanco, Mark Rhino Smith, Lillian Blankenship, and Shari Watson. This doesn't look that good at all, but if you need more zombies in your life, have at it.

First Trailer for J.A. Bayona's Sequel 'Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom'

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Trailer

"Life cannot be contained. Life breaks free…" Universal Pictures has debuted the first official trailer for J.A. Bayona's Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, the action-packed blockbuster sequel to 2015's Jurassic World, which is the current reboot of the Jurassic Park sci-fi dinosaur park series. The plot for this one involves the group going back to Isla Nublar to try and save some dinos before a volcano eruption takes out the entire island. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return as co-stars, along with "Ian Malcolm" himself, Mr. Jeff Goldblum, plus BD Wong, Toby Jones, Ted Levine, James Cromwell, Geraldine Chaplin, and Rafe Spall. So this actually looks pretty damn good, better than I was expecting, but it still seems they're overselling it (more dinosaurs, and a volcano, and everything!). I just hope this one is good.
