Hitting Theaters on Friday - Keanu Reeves in John Wick
While there are those who simply didn't like Disney's adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic character John Carter back in 2012, there are even more people who didn't give it a chance because the studio just didn't market it well enough. It's a fun, impressive space adventure worthy of comparison to Indiana Jones and Star Wars in tone and scope, even if it's not the most groundbreaking film. After the film was a huge flop for Disney, there was little to no chance that a sequel would happen, but that doesn't mean we won't see a new John Carter adventure, because the rights to the character no longer belong to Disney.
Hot on the heels of news that fans will be able to get a dancing Groot toy just in time for the holidays, another treat from Guardians of the Galaxy will be available for purchase this holiday season too. Besides the ragtag group of misfits that make up the titular cosmic crew from Marvel's successful flick, one of the biggest stars of the film is the classic pop rock soundtrack. And now you'll be able to own and listen to it exactly like Star-Lord would because Billboard reports you can buy Awesome Mix Vol. 1 on cassette tape beginning November 17th. So now that friend of yours with a shitty car will have great music. Look!
If you're into documentaries, or even if you aren't, this is a must watch trailer for a must watch film. A few years ago, filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer unveiled his remarkable, shocking, profound documentary The Act of Killing, confronting the murderers behind the Indonesian killings of 1965-66. Oppenheimer is back with his follow-up documentary The Look of Silence, in which he returns to Indonesia and focuses on an optometrist who confronts the men that killed one of his brothers, addressing the same tough topic in a completely different light. It's another incredible documentary that we highly recommend taking a look at, it says so much through silence and emotions. It's a powerful film and this trailer provides a good hint at that.
The sequel to Hot Tub Time Machine was just pushed back to February 20th, 2015 after originally being set for release on Christmas Day, and now director Steve Pink already has his next comedy lined up as Deadline reports MGM has picked up a pitch for a project called Cop Swap. The studio acted fast to pick up the pitch with Pink attached to direct and also write the script with his writing partner Jeff Morris. The movie will focus on a real-life international exchange program of major metropolitan police departments across America that allow cops from foreign cities to essentially intern as part of the LAPD.

In today's installment of fun Star Wars stuff to hold us over until some non-spoiler, Star Wars: Episode VII updates surface, we have a cool photo set that makes the sci-fi saga feel real. Photographer Thomas Dagg has taken real-life photos and injected something from a galaxy far, far away in each one of them. Each photo shows us what the real world might be like if the characters, creatures and vehicles of the Star Wars trilogy actually existed on Earth. From an AT-AT patrolling the snowy city to Jawas digging through a trashpile, these are some great, subtle photographs that will make anyone wish they were real. Look now!
There are plenty of aspiring screenwriters out there who want to turn their favorite comic book, video game, toyline and whatever else Hollywood snatches up, into a feature film. However, few of them ever actually have the drive or ambition to actually do it. Enter Max Landis, the writer of the found footage superhero flick Chronicle and the forthcoming new take on Frankenstein starring Daniel Radcliffe. Landis is now 29 years old and has a lucrative screenwriting career, but just 10 years ago he was a 19-year old with the dream of turning the popular Super Nintendo video game Super Mario World into a feature film. More below!
We're waiting patiently for the arrival of Interstellar, the latest film from director Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight trilogy), and we can't wait to see the film's IMAX footage, which clocks in at over an hour. Nolan recently compared the film to Stanley Kubrick's sci-fi classic 2001: A Space Odyssey, and audiences in the United Kingdom will get a chance to compare them perfectly on the big screen since the 1968 film is getting re-released in theaters. And to promote the film's return to the big screen, a gorgeous new trailer has arrived that will have you wanting to see this film again now. Watch it!
"Whoever you are, whatever it is you're doing, you are going to want to witness this." The release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part I is exactly one month away, and the marketing campaign is heading into overdrive with cross-promotions launching all over the place. We just got an extended TV spot when tickets for the first chapter in the two-part finale went on sale last week, plus there's a new series using YouTube personalities as District Voices for Capitol TV, and now a new TV spot has surfaced from Doritos, the snack brand that wants to be synonymous with a franchise about citizens killing each other due to an overpowered government simply because it has the word "hunger" in the title. Watch TV spot below!
Considering the fact that Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues didn't quite live up to the 10 years of waiting fans had to do in order to see it hit the big screen, it's probably a safe bet that director Adam McKay won't be heading back into sequel territory again anytime soon. And that's exactly right, but that doesn't mean the comedy filmmaker doesn't have plans to return to one of his more revered comedies. Collider recently sat down with McKay for a chat and asked about the potential for a sequel to the 2008 comedy Step Brothers starring Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, and it's further along than you might have thought.
Briefly: Warner Bros. Pictures had originally dated the horror sequel to last year's hit The Conjuring for October 23rd, 2015. However, since we haven't heard anything about a director or cast, we were starting to wonder if the film would be able to meet that date. And now we have our answer as the studio has removed The Conjuring 2 from next year's calendar and will release it sometime in 2016 instead. But there will still be horror from Warner Bros. this fall because an unspecified horror film will take the sequel's previous October 2015 date instead. But we're not sure at all what that film might be so stay tuned.
Well hello there little friend! Pixar has a new character to introduce us to today, and his name is Arlo. He's a dinosaur, and he's a cutie, of course. Disney-Pixar has posted a short new video to their Twitter account @DisneyPixar with a message introducing us to director Peter Sohn and his lead character Arlo from The Good Dinosaur. The film was originally supposed to be out this summer, but ended up pushed back to November 2015, late next year. Word is the movie has been "dismantled" & "completely reimagined", which means we're not sure what to expect or if any of the early details hold up, but here's the latest little official tease. One note - you can see the lead human character in a frame in the upper right at the end of the video.
There's no doubt that Gone Girl is a hit, and it's undoubtedly of the most successful films David Fincher has ever directed, and it's likely reached audiences that otherwise might not seek out the filmmaker's work. And if you're like me, then you're hungry to hear Fincher, writer Gillian Flynn and stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike talk about the film itself. They all showed up for a chat on "Charlie Rose" and the result is a solid 36-minute discussion about the making of the film, whether the characters were likable, and of course, the film's commentary on marriage and the insane world of media. It's definitely worth a watch.
