See the Sundance Poster for the Must See Roger Ebert Doc 'Life Itself'

Life Itself

The Only Thing Roger Loved More Than Movies… This isn't the best poster you'll see all year, but it might just be one of the best documentaries you see all year, which is why his is worth featuring anyway. With a release coming up this summer, CNN Films & Magnolia Pictures have debuted the poster for the Roger Ebert doc Life Itself, directed by Steve James (Hoop Dreams) based on Ebert's memoirs of the same name. The doc first premiered at Sundance to glowing reviews across the board. It's the kind of doc where you feel every emotion, but by the end you'll be inspired to live and love life—and movies—as much as Ebert.

Charlie Brown and Snoopy Go 3D in Animated 'Peanuts' First Teaser

Peanuts

While comic artist Charles Schulz may have passed away, leaving us without any new Peanuts comic strips, that doesn't mean Charlie Brown and Snoopy don't have some more tricks up their sleeve. Blue Sky Studios, the company behind the Ice Age franchise, has been working on a computer animated feature film, turning the beloved characters into 3D creations for the first time. But as the first trailer indicates, it hasn't lost any of its timeless charm. The same illustrated style is there, and even has some stop-motion style jitters, but it's just been given some nice depth and texture. Maybe this could work after all? Watch below!

Watch: Full Teaser Trailer for Wes Ball's 'The Maze Runner' Adaptation

The Maze Runner Trailer

"We don't know… what's out there…" 20th Century Fox has debuted the first teaser trailer for Wes Ball's The Maze Runner, adapted from the novel of the same name by James Dashner, who also worked on the screenplay. This story is about a bunch of kids trapped in a brutal game (another Hunger Games follow-up) but the game is actually a gigantic maze they're trapped in. Directing is Wes Ball, of that short Ruin, who's making his feature debut with Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson & Thomas Brodie-Sangster in his cast. This actually looks pretty damn good, it has a nice sci-fi tinge to it, I'm looking forward to seeing what's out there. "I think it's time we find out what we're really up against."

Alison Brie Joins Will Ferrell & Kevin Hart in 'Get Hard' Prison Comedy

Alison Brie

Over a year a go, Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart were reported to be teaming up for a new comedy called Get Hard. In the film, Ferrell is playing a rich, soft-handed investment bank manager who is sentenced to a maximum security prison for a crime he didn’t commit. So how is this white collar softie going to deal with hard time? With 30 days until he has to report to prison, he hires a streewise guy (Hart), who normally washes his car, to prepare him for the trials and tribulations of life in the big house. Now Deadline reports Ferrell has a fiance in the form of the funny and adorable "Community" and "Mad Men" star Alison Brie.

Alfonso Cuaron Reflects on Entire Career in One-Hour BAFTA Chat

Alfonso Cuaron

For those who didn't pay attention to the BAFTA winners (the United Kingdom's equivalent of the Academy Awards), you might have missed that Gravity was considered a British film because it was produced by David Heyman and shot largely in studios across the pond. So it makes sense than director Alfonso Cuaron took one hour to sit down with the Los Angeles branch of BAFTA to talk about his whole career, including his influential childhood in Mexico, his time spent in film school and more. This took place in January before he won Best Director, so there's no talk about that, but he certainly dives into the making of Gravity, his previous films, and his tastes and influences in cinema. It's an incredible discussion. Watch!

Watch: 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier' Trailer Remade with Kids

Captain America: The Winter Soldier with Kids

Earlier this year we saw some kids adorably reenact some scenes from the Best Picture nominees, and now some more adorable rugrats have been rounded up to give the same treatment to the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. While the aforementioned videos of kids acting out Oscar nominated films was just for the sake of comedy, this one has the weight of Chevrolet behind it. This is exactly what kids see in their mind when they act out their favorite superhero movies, but what makes this charming is the slight changes to some of the dialogue, tailored for the kids. That Nick Fury kid sounds tough. Watch!

First Look: Dwayne Johnson is a Bad Ass Chopper Pilot in 'San Andreas'

San Andreas

Production on Fast & Furious 7 will be getting back in swing in April, so it sounds like Dwayne Johnson might be pretty busy over the next few months, because in four weeks he's also slated to start shooting the disaster action thriller San Andreas. Sin City and Sucker Punch star Carla Gugino just joined the film about a special ops firefighter (Johnson) and his ex-wife (Gugino) as they attempt to leave Los Angeles and head to San Francisco in order to rescue their daughter (Alexandra Daddario) after a massive earthquake strikes California. Now we have a first look at Johnson looking like a bad ass with his chopper. Look below!

Angelina Jolie Spreads Wings as 'Maleficent' in New Teaser & Banner

Maleficent

"All the other fairies fly, why don't you?" Following a couple new posters for the Disney villain tale Maleficent, we have a new banner and teaser poster taking flight with Angelina Jolie spreading her wings as the Sleeping Beauty sorceress. The banner just shows off the impressive wingspan, but the new teaser gives us even more background information of how Maleficent came to be so evil, and it might have something to do with someone stealing her wings. While I'm concerned this will turn out like another bland revision in the vein of Snow White and the Huntsman, hopefully Jolie will make this work. Watch and see!

First Ivy-Covered Teaser Poster for Adaptation of 'The Maze Runner'

The Maze Runner

Following some impressive, towering concept art last year, not to mention some first look photos, the teaser poster for The Maze Runner has arrived. It definitely takes a cue from the aforementioned concept art, but just changes the angle from which we see the maze, and only features two characters getting ready to enter the towering puzzle. Fox pushed back the film from an initial February release all the way to this fall in September, but  that was apparently to make the movie and marketing better, to give audiences more time to gain interest in the film. The teaser trailer shouldn't be too far behind either so stay tuned. See the poster!

Check Out This Monstrous New 'Godzilla' Toy That's Over 3-Feet Long

Godzilla

Normally when it comes to posting pictures of toys for big blockbuster films heading to theaters, we're not big fans. Many times, some people think getting a glimpse of some action figures or toy promo artwork is a good first impression for a film that hasn't released a first look photo or a teaser trailer yet, but we think that's rubbish. However, since we've already gotten a glimpse at the new Godzilla from director Gareth Edwards in the most recent trailer, we have no problem pointing out this cool new toy version of the King of Monsters, especially since it's over 3-feet long! And if this new Godzilla is really that big compared to the kid in this picture, then we might just have to pick up one of these for our own shelf. Check out the toy!

Pixar is Planning 3D Re-Releases of 'The Incredibles' and 'Ratatouille'

The Incredibles

With 3D re-releases of Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Finding Nemo and Monster Inc. already in the past, Pixar Animation plans on giving two more of their films the same treatment. Screen Daily has word from Josh Hollander, Pixar’s director of 3D production (speaking at the 3D Creative Summit in London) that both The Incredibles and Ratatouille will be sent back to theaters in 3D. This will be the first time Pixar is re-releasing their films in 3D without a real reason. The aforementioned 3D re-releases hit theaters in order to promote then-forthcoming sequels, but the two new re-releases don't have sequels in development now.
