Robots with feelings is well-tread sci-fi territory. But if Alex Garland (the man behind 28 Days Later) was able to bring new life into the zombie trope, he can find an intelligent and thrilling twist on this as well. Will you watch it?
In a few days the European Space Agency’s ‘Rosetta Mission’ will be landing on its host Comet. As the first successful orbit around a comet, the ESA is searching for answers on the origin of our Earth. This short film is a celebration of the Rosetta spacecraft mission, and it’s pretty bloody awesome!
After a low-resolution version of the first Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer leaked today and caused a fanboy flurry online, Disney and Marvel reacted quickly by releasing the official version almost a week early. The original plan was to debut the trailer next week during ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. next Tuesday night. When the leaked video started going viral, Marvel smartly opted to put its higher-quality version online. Watch it now!
Halo Nightfall is a live action series providing insight into the origin and backstory of legendary manhunter Agent Locke, a pivotal new character in the Halo universe who will play a key role in Halo 5: Guardians. A strange and treacherous world exposes elite UNSC operatives to a much deeper danger.
Few things are as tense as watching someone needlessly gamble away a fortune. Nothing makes me want to yell at the screen more. Nevertheless, I’m pretty eager to see The Gambler based on this awesome Red Band trailer. There isn’t a lot of sex or violence going down here. It’s basically just John Goodman saying “F**k you” a lot followed by Mark Wahlberg saying “F**k you” just once. I’m not sure if we’re getting dumb Wahlberg, angry Wahlberg, or just flat out serene Wahlberg, but we do get a bald John Goodman, so it’s all good either way. It gets a limited release December 19. Then the rest of us schmucks finally get to see it starting January 2.
Griffon Ramsey makes incredible detailed wooden sculptures. But while many artists who deal with wood use utility knives or chisels as their primary creation tool, Ramsey opts for the much more powerful chainsaw. Ramsey’s latest creation is an awesome sculpture of Groot from the box office megahit “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and in the video Ramsey gives us an intimate look at how she made it. Not only does Griffon use the chainsaw to carve the outline for Groot out of the massive tree she used for the sculpture, she also uses it to make the fine cuts that give Groot skin textures and other small details. Check it out!
In Focus, Will Smith returns to screens as a charming con man–much as he was in the popular series in which he conned his way into a rich family’s life by pretending to be their nephew. He’s training The Wolf of Wall Street’s Margot Robbie in the art of the con, but because she is really sexy, and he is super ripped, they also end up getting romantically involved. They end up calling things off when they get too close, but that’s not the end of it: three years later, the rest of the movie happens! Here’s how that looks…
From Disney comes two-time Oscar winner Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland,” a riveting mystery adventure starring Academy Award winner George Clooney. Bound by a shared destiny, former boy-genius Frank (Clooney), jaded by disillusionment, and Casey (Britt Robertson), a bright, optimistic teen bursting with scientific curiosity, embark on a danger-filled mission to unearth the secrets of an enigmatic place somewhere in time and space known only as “Tomorrowland.” What they must do there changes the world–and them–forever.
Annoying for her, hilarious for everyone else. You don’t have to be a Lord of the Rings fan to find this absolutely side-splitting. Watch this bloke repeatedly scare his girlfriend with decibel-busting quotes from the popular fantasy trilogy. ‘THE BEACONS ARE LIT!’ he shouts as he charges his partner who’s hanging out washing in the garden. The bombardment continues, this time in the kitchen, where he says softly: ‘Is there any hope Gandalf? For Frodo and Sam?…There was never any hope.’ Then he scares her in the darkness with: ‘Where is Gandalf? For I have much desire to speak with him.’ At one point the clip cuts to his girlfriend outside in a bikini top. ‘Even on holiday?’ she questions. I like to imagine that the first clip is when they first met.
Ever wonder what it’s like filming a sex scene? Based on a behind-the-scenes video from the upcoming movie Stretch, it seems pretty awkward. Cameras on set captured not just the fake love-making, but also Wilson and Decker getting um, comfortable, with each other before launching into their, ahem, performance. After the director yells “cut,” the stars are praised for “great f**king,” and even discuss whether to add some dirty lines. There’s also the application of fake sweat. Check it out!
American car culture has penetrated the Scandinavian countries. From modern-day muscle cars such as the Shelby GT500 to the original heroes like the Shelby Cobra, they’re all present in this movie. Don’t worry though, Europe has a place on the map too. Think Ford Sierra Cosworth, Porsche 911 GT3, Ferrari V8s, the BMW M3 and others. And while Japan’s presence is limited, it looks like a Toyota GT 86, for which “heavily modified” would be an understatement, has a central role in the motion picture. Børning brought its carbon fiber hoods and massive rear wings to Norwegian theaters on August 13 and was apparently a huge hit. Now SF-Film, the company behind the production, wants to take on the rest of the world, with an international release. Would you watch it?
Warner Bros. has released the first American Sniper trailer for director Clint Eastwood’s upcoming drama. Based on a true story, the film stars Bradley Cooper as U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who served four tours in Iraq and quickly became the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. His reputation crossed enemy lines, making him a prime target for the insurgency, and when he returned home to his wife and kids, he struggled to leave the war behind. Will you watch it?
You’ve gotta love how Warner Bros. is marketing Horrible Bosses 2. The last trailer pushed the edges of what “Green Band” could do, featuring some incredibly racy dialogue from co-star Jennifer Aniston. She’s back in the latest trailer, called the “Official Main Trailer” and again her story sets the tone with some hilarious, off-colour humor. Everyone seems to be really going for it here and, hopefully, the movie itself adheres to that. Will you watch it?
