ST. VINCENT Clip Features Bill Murray Boozing it Up While Exploiting Child Labor

The Toronto International Film Festival is in full swing now and that’s where Theodore Melfi’s feature directorial debut, St. Vincent, will be having its world premiere this evening.  You’ve seen a trailer for the film along with some images, but now we have our first clip from the movie.  I like it.  Bill Murray seems like he’s in nice, subdued form and it’s a relief to see Melissa McCarthy playing a real person after a string of successful caricatures.

St. Vincent features Bill Murray as Vincent, Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) and Oliver’s (Jaeden Lieberher) retired neighbor with a drinking problem, bad attitude and no money in his bank account.  When Maggie gets stuck working long hours, she lets Vincent watch Oliver while she’s gone, giving him a chance to make a quick buck.  Hit the jump to check out the clip.  The film also stars Chris O’Dowd and Naomi Watts.  It’s set to screen at TIFF tonight and will begin its theatrical run on October 14th.

Hold onto your butts; Samuel L. Jackson is back and he’s rolling down a hill in a freezer.  Really.  Jackson leads the Toronto International Film Festival Midnight Madness selection, Big Game, as the President of the United States.  When a 13-year-old boy named Oskari (Onni Tommila) accepts the traditional challenge to head out into the wilderness for one day and one night to prove that he’s a man, he winds up stumbling across an escape pod – the Air Force One escape pod.  Now it’s up to Oskari to protect the President from the terrorists trying to kidnap him.

Check out what happens when Oskari insists, “Instead of looking tough, we have to be tough,” in the very first Big Game clip after the jump.  The film also stars Ray Stevenson, Jim Broadbent and Felicity Huffman.

If you’re going to survive The Maze Runner, you’ve got to follow the rules.  You’ve got to check out the map room, get your section assignment, gear up and only then can you run into the maze to try to find a way out.  And if that’s not hard enough, you’ve also got to make sure you make it back into The Glade before those doors close, otherwise, the Grievers will get you.

It’s always been clear that the James Dashner book has some serious big screen potential, but now that The Maze Runner promo material is pouring in ahead of the film’s September 19th release, it’s more evident than ever.  Hit the jump to catch a brand new The Maze Runner clip as well as some new promo videos and character posters, too.

Fed up with movies that rely on jump scares and gore to excess to freak you out?  You’ve got to check out these two new clips for Backcountry.  The film marks Adam MacDonald’s feature directorial debut and centers on Jenn (Missy Peregrym) and Alex (Jeff Roop), a couple that takes to the woods to get away from the big city for a bit.  Alex insists he knows the way to the secluded Blackfoot Trail, but when their path disappears, they’re stuck out in the middle of nowhere with no food or water, and in bear territory.

Backcountry is due to make its World Premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, September 8th.  It’s already got distribution in Canada, but hopefully a domestic distributor sees it and snatches it up fast because after watching these Backcountry clips, you’ll be dying to see the full feature.  Hit the jump to check them out.

BIG HERO 6 Clip Introduces Unlikely Friends Hiro and Baymax

big-hero-6-clip

Disney has released a new Big Hero 6 clip online.  Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt) directed the adaptation of the Marvel comic, which takes place in the high-tech city of San Fransokyo, and tells the story of a robotics prodigy named Hiro Hamada (voiced by Ryan Potter) who, with his robot companion Baymax (Scott Adsit) in tow, teams up with a reluctant team of first-time crime fighters to save the metropolis from destruction.

I’m not familiar with the source material, but I really dug the trailer and am looking forward to seeing this movie next month.  I think it’s interesting that a lot of the more clever writing on the studio end of things these days is for animated projects.  This clip is most certainly from earlier in the film considering it seems to be the scene where Hiro and Baymax first meet.  Hit the jump to check out the new Big Hero 6 clip.  The film also features the voices of Maya Rudolph, James Cromwell, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Genesis Rodriguez, Damon Wayans Jr., and Alan TudykBig Hero 6 opens in 3D on November 7th.  And be sure to check back in with us tomorrow, since we have a lot more coverage on this film hitting then.

Hopefully you’ve had your morning coffee and don’t plan on having a glass of wine for a while now because these new clips from The Sound and the Fury and The Riot Club might make you think twice about drinking either of them.  James Franco’s latest is just days away from its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival and has its Toronto International Film Festival screening coming up right after, so the team behind it has unveiled a clip from the film, teasing the intensity we’ve got coming.

We’ve also got Lone Scherfig’s The Riot Club making its way to TIFF for a world premiere.  Even though Joey King and Scott Haze both look like they can get a little nasty in that piece from The Sound and the Fury, the Riot Club clip actually might be tougher to stomach.  Hit the jump to find out why.

LAVA Clip: Pixar’s Latest Grabs the Ukulele and Sings

by     Posted 25 days ago

lava-clip-pixar

There’s not a whole lot to say about a 38-second clip for a 10-minute short, but Pixar’s Lava certainly looks charming enough.  The studio doesn’t have a feature film slated for release this year, at least not since they pushed The Good Dinosaur to 2015, so this clip could be all we get from them for a while.  The short is a “musical love story” that revolves around two anthropomorphic volcanoes, and now you can hear one of those volcanoes (named Uku) sing.

Directed by James Ford Murphy, the short will play in front of Inside Out in theaters starting June 19, 2015.  So, yeah, almost a year away.  Hit the jump to check out the Lava clip!

Reclaim is gearing up for release next month and we have an exclusive clip from the film to share with you today.  The clip features John Cusack and Rachelle Lefevre engaging in some beach-side conversation that gets a bit too personal (and a bit too creepy) a bit too quick.  My advice for her would be to run away and take her adopted daughter with her.  Ryan Phillippe also stars in the film along with Luis Guzman and Jacki Weaver.

Reclaim was directed by Alan White from a script by Luke Davies and Carmine Gaeta and if definitely seems like it explores the shady underbelly of the international adoption process.  Hit the jump to check out the Reclaim clip!  The film opens in limited theaters and On-Demand this September 19th.

Ever since seeing writer-director Jennifer Kent’s feature directorial debut, The Babadook, all I’ve wanted to do is be a total weirdo and walk around whispering, “Ba ba-ba dook, dook, dook,” to everyone.  Trouble is, the movie doesn’t hit theaters until November 28th, so until then, I’d probably sound like an idiot.  But, a brand new clip from the film did just hit the web and it reveals what The Babadook’s all about and his creepy catchphrase, too.

Hit the jump if you dare let Amelia (Essie Davis) read you the story of Mister Babadook in The Babadook clip.  The film also stars Noah Wiseman, Barbara West and Daniel Henshall.

Watch the Final Battle from GODZILLA and Add Some Monster Mayhem to Your Day

by     Posted 32 days ago

godzilla-poster

Godzilla lived up to big expectations assuming you expected it to be a true Godzilla movie.  There wasn’t much in the way of interesting human characters or deep personal drama.  It was about giant monsters fighting, and director Gareth Edwards handled it wonderfully.  It will be four years until we get the sequel, but with the promise of Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah, I’m hoping it will be worth the wait.  In the meantime, we can enjoy the excellent final battle from this year’s movie.  I won’t lie: It’s not quite as powerful when viewed on a computer monitor, but it’s still entertaining.  Atomic breath is always entertaining.

Hit the jump to check out the final battle from Godzilla, and click here to pre-order the film on 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, or DVD.  The film will be released for home entertainment on September 16th.

A SECOND CHANCE Clips and Images Featuring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Go Deeper Into the Film’s Criminal Underworld

a-second-chance-clips

One of the feature TIFF films that I’m most looking forward to seeing is Love is All You Need director Susanne Bier’s thriller A Second Chance.  Last month we posted the trailer which was gripping, tense and dour (in a good way).  As I said then, this project looks like a little bit of a twist on Gone Baby Gone (also a good thing) in that it explores thematic elements that could be seen as a counterpoint to that film.  Now we have a series of five clips, totaling eight minutes of the film, that flesh about the characters a bit.

The film was written by frequent Bier collaborator Anders Thomas Jensen and stars Jamie Lannister himself,  Nikolaj Coster-WaldauUlrich Thomsen, Maria Bonnevie, Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Lykke May Andersen also appear.  Hit the jump to check out the A Second Chance clips.  We also have new images from the film.  A Second Chance will have its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 9th.
