Fresh off of it’s world premiere at the Berlinale FestivalDavid M. Rosenthal‘s crime thriller A Single Shot got itself a trailer today, and boy is it something to see.  The film was adapted by Matthew F. Jones from his own novel and stars Sam Rockwell as a deer hunter who falls into a strange game of cat and mouse with some backwoods criminals.  The trailer acts more like a tone poem than a traditional trailer, but in this sense it sets a haunting, elliptical mood that has me very psyched for the film itself, much more so than a straightforward trailer focused on plot and exposition.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer for yourself.  Set to play the Tribeca Film Festival later this monthA Single Shot also stars Jeffrey Wright, Kelly Reilly, Jason Isaacs, Ted Levine and William H. Macy.

Aaanndd… they’re back!  Made at around $35 million and grossing north of $209 million worldwide, it’s no joke calling Seth Gordon‘s 2011 workplace comedy Horrible Bosses a hit.  Starring Jason BatemanCharlie Day and Jason Sudikis as down-trodden buds who plot to kill their maniacal bosses, studio New Line justifiably wanted a sequel despite the premise feeling somewhat sequel proof.  Well, when there’s a will, there’s a way as the principal cast will return for Horrible Bosses 2.  Though when that will involves hefty sums of money for the film’s stars, sometimes everyone involved has to wait.  And now, after more than a half a year of negotiations things look bright for more “boss-bashing.”  Hit the jump for more.

Once upon a time, Spider-Man director Sam Raimi was set to direct the adaptation of Blizzard’s uber-successful MMORPG, World of Warcraft. It was a time for celebration amongst movie fans and gamers alike as Raimi seemed like a bold, exciting choice for the project which promised to rival the scope of films such as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. And then, with the wave of a wizard’s staff, Raimi was off the project. While World Of Warcraft is now getting back on track with Duncan Jones (Source Code) in the director’s chair, we never quite knew what was the cause behind Raimi’s departure.

Until today that is. Hit the jump for the full story, including further details on why he also left Spider-Man 4, and what he thinks of Marvel’s wonder boy, Joss Whedon.

There’s no doubt about it, when Director Brad Bird takes on a project anticipation and expectations in geekdom can, for better or worse, swell to great heights. Add Lost co-creator Damon Lindleof into the mix and we’ve got a whole new set of feelings to wade through. When news came that Bird and Lindleof were working together on a project for Disney called 1952, film geeks everywhere perked up. Earlier this year when the title changed to Tomorrowland, many of us raised our eyebrows, as we figured this had to be tied in with the classic Disney sub-theme park — home of the infamous Space Mountain. So, just what could Bird and Lindelof be cooking up for Disney? And would Lindelof be bringing his particular brand of “mystery-box” writing to the project?

Fresh details on just what this Tomorrowland could bring, after the jump.
