"That there is a dame to kill for." Some recent first look photos popped up showing off the return of Mickey Rourke and Jessica Alba in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, not to mention a glimpse of Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Now we get to see more of them and a much better look into the sequel, including the first looks at Ray Liotta, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, and Dennis Haysbert stepping in for Michael Clarke Duncan. As expected, the visuals are gorgeous, and this looks like the Sin City sequel we've all been waiting for from Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller. It's short and sweet, but that's all we need now. Watch!
Can Tom Hardy make driving in a car for an hour and a half compelling? If the quotes in this first domestic trailer for the real-time thriller Locke are to be believed, then then answer is affirmative. While the trailer does seem a bit silly since it uses quick cuts to Hardy driving a car from different angles and in various states of distress, it does sounds like his character is dealing with a lot of pressure from several different angles. Taking the isolated setting and single-character style of Buried and adding an actor like Hardy into the mix is what truly makes this seem like a promising film, but we'll find out this spring. Watch!
After playing at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, the indie rock comedy Frank is poised to hit theaters sometime this year after Magnolia Pictures picked up the film starring Michael Fassbender. Since the film is already slated for a release in the United Kingdom on May 9th, that's where the first trailer for the film comes from, and it perfectly showcases the quirky, hilarity that makes this such an endearing comedy. But if you're hoping to see Fassbender's handsome face alongside Domhnall Gleeson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Scott McNairy, you're in for a surprise, because he's got quite a special accessory. Watch!
"Movies don't really build things like this anymore." While much of the talk about Noah after the film hits theaters will likely and pointlessly revolved around the film's accuracy to The Bible and various other religious qualms, some attention should be paid to its achievement in filmmaking. And one such impressive element is the constructions of the ark at the center of the film. The first featurette for Darren Aronofsky's epic focuses on how they made part of this giant ship a reality, taking one year to design and six months to build it. Visual effects complete the ark, but this practical set piece is awesome. Watch below!
We just recently saw a cool featurette showing Benedict Cumberbatch doing motion-capture work to play the titular dragon in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Now another look behind the scenes has popped up looking at the somewhat silly, but impressive dwarf barrel escape sequence from the sequel that feels almost straight out of a Steven Spielberg film. Peter Jackson pops up on set as this featurette shows a combination of the footage shot and the visual effects that came together to make this fun sequence work on the big screen. It's a short featurette, but it shows just how much went into this small part of the film.
Originally slated for release last year around awards season, The Weinstein Company decided to delay Grace of Monaco to a March release. However, the film was pulled from that release as well in favor of a premiere at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival this summer. That might mean that The Weinstein Company is looking to give the film an awards season theatrical run this year instead, but we'll have to wait and see how the film does at its festival debut overseas. In the meantime, we have a new trailer from the United Kingdom to see how Nicole Kidman fares as Grace Kelly, getting involved with the monarchy in Monaco. Watch it!
After a breakthrough performance in the Best Picture nominated Beasts of the Southern Wild, young actress Quvenzhané Wallis is getting musical in this contemporary adaptation of the classic musical Annie. With a story that puts the adorable orphan in the care of Will Stacks, just in time to help his New York mayoral campaign, everything about this updated, urban on the material feels too phony, and so do Jamie Foxx and Cameron Diaz. Wallis is cute as Annie, and she's certainly grown up a bit since her indie debut, but this film doesn't look like anything special, and the singing sounds way too artificially poppy. Watch?
"The stress of everything is catching up to me..." Ohhh boy this looks really, really eerie. A teaser trailer has debuted online for Midnight SXSW film Honeymoon, from first-time filmmaker Leigh Janiak. The film stars Harry Treadaway and Rose Leslie as newlyweds Paul and Bea, who travel to a remote lake country for their honeymoon. It doesn't take long for the whole atmosphere to get a bit creepy, almost as if Lars von Trier suddenly took over. Janiak was impressed by Treadaway's performances in Fish Tank and Control, she tells Hitfix. The film will play at SXSW 2014 and Tribeca and likely other genre fests. Be prepared for chills.
The last teaser trailer for Laika's new stop-motion animated film The Boxtrolls looked behind the scenes at the painstaking, intricate animation process. Now a new teaser trailer has emerged that still doesn't give us much in the vein of story, but features a catchy new version of an old tune for the film. That's Cee Lo Green's cover of "(You're So Square) Baby, I Don't Care," previously sang by the likes of Elvis Presley and Buddy Holly, driving this whole teaser trailer with more fantastic animation. This time we get to see more of the human characters, but we're still waiting for a full trailer with some story details. Watch below!
We've already seen one teaser trailer for the creepy indie horror flick Oculus, but now we get a much better idea of the story with the full theatrical trailer. Tim (Brenton Thwaites) and Kaylie (Karen Gillan) had their lives changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents at a young age. Ten year later, Tim is released from protective custody and ready to move on with his life but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents' deaths were caused by a malevolent supernatural force from the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror from their childhood home. And she's unfortunately right. Watch below!
"I'm his biggest fan, and I fired him." If you're a loyal follower of the NBC comedy series "Community," then you likely know about the tumultuous times the series creator Dan Harmon had behind the scenes with plenty of people. From former series regular Chevy Chase to NBC executives, Harmon became known for being a somewhat difficult guy to work with, and it turns out that just might be a regular thing. A new documentary called Harmontown premieres at SXSW this month, and it follows a comedy tour Harmon did recently mixed in with talking heads from Joel McHale, Jack Black, Sarah Silverman and more, painting a better picture of Harmon's life, career and personality. It looks pretty fascinating. Watch below!
"There has been an accident..." Magnet has debuted the first official red band trailer for the feature debut of Canadian filmmaker Jerome Sable, best known for his short The Legend of Beaver Dam, as well as a number of others. In the film, titled Stage Fright, Meat Loaf and Minnie Driver star in a wacky horror musical comedy set at a musical theater camp. I have a feeling this might end up being cult horror classic kind of material and I'm looking forward to seeing it, especially after this trailer. The kabuki seems a bit odd, but this still looks ridiculously campy and musically absurd, exactly what Sable promised to deliver.
"The age of the Transformers is over..." Paramount has unleashed the first full trailer for Michael Bay's fourth movie in the action-packed Transformers series this one titled Transformers: Age of Extinction, starring Mark Wahlberg (seen in Bay's Pain & Gain) instead of Shia LaBeouf. Bay gave us our first tease during the Super Bowl with a 30-second TV spot that showed the Dinobots making an appearance. Now we finally get to learn a bit more about the story and characters in this sequel, but mostly see more explosions and awesome robot action. The cast includes Nicola Peltz, Jack Reynor, T.J. Miller, Stanley Tucci, Kelsey Grammer and Peter Cullen back voicing Optimus. Fire up the first TF4 trailer below and enjoy.
"Get me off the grid now!" After the last TV spot hinted that a certain Marvel character might be in trouble in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a new one-minute spot for the Marvel sequel pretty much confirms it. It seems like Samuel L. Jackson has Nick Fury will definitely be incapacitated for part of the film, but we're doubting that he'll be killed off. However, Fury isn't the only member of S.H.I.E.L.D. under fire as we see the government holding some sort of hearing to scrutinize the agency that seems to be taking a lot of liberty with protecting the United States. This just looks better and better. Watch the TV spot below!
