With Wally Pfister’s upcoming directorial debut Transcendence opening April 18th, Warner Bros. has provided us with seven clips and thirteen minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the movie.  The film revolves around a group of scientists trying to build the first self-aware supercomputer, and when lead researcher Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) becomes the target of anti-technology extremists, he unexpectedly becomes a participant in his own transcendence.  Pfister has done excellent work as a cinematographer in recent years with films like The Dark Knight, Inception, and Moneyball, but the big question is can he make the leap to the director’s chair.  So far the marketing materials have promised Transcendence is a smart, sci-fi-tinged thriller, and I’m very curious what audiences are going to think.

Hit the jump to watch the clips and behind-the-scenes footage.  The film also stars Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, and Clifton Collins Jr.

We have an exclusive clip from Muppets Most Wanted.  The Muppets set out on a world tour in the caper sequel.  With a carefully placed mole, the infamous Constantine swaps identities with Kermit, who is captured and shipped off to a Siberian Gulag.  The clip takes place pretty late in the film at the Gulag—showing off the sight gag of Muppets in winter clothes—so tread lightly if you are avoiding spoilers.  But go see it already!  The Muppets are the most reliable good time in Hollywood.

You can’t sell a big superhero movie these days without product integration or cross-promotion, and thanks to Sony’s team-up with Kellogg’s, three new promo clips from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have landed online.  The clips show off some meaty bits of new footage (including Oscorp and Norman Osborn), but they’re mostly notable because they feature narration from comic book legend Stan Lee, adding a retro, heroic feel to the footage.  In the Marc Webb-directed sequel, Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) finds himself surrounded by antagonistic forces as Electro (Jamie Foxx) emerges, Parker’s old friend Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) returns to New York City, and everyone seems to have a connection to the shady goings-on at Oscorp.

Hit the jump to watch the three promo clips, one of which is slightly spoilery.  The film also stars Emma StonePaul GiamattiFelicity JonesChris CooperB.J. NovakColm Feore, and Sally Field.  The Amazing Spider-Man 2 opens in 3D on May 2nd.

With director Noam Murro’s 300: Rise of an Empire opening March 7th, WB. has provided us with 6 clips and over 7 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the film.  In the sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300, Greek general Themistokles (Sullivan Stapleton) attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war against the massive invading Persian forces led by mortal-turned-god, Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro), and Artemisia (Eva Green), the vengeful commander of the Persian navy.  The film also stars Lena Headey, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Igal Nao, Callan Mulvey, Jack O’Connell, and Andrew Tiernan.

I’ve seen the film twice now and am happy to report the sequel kicks ass.  The fight scenes are extremely well done, the 3D actually adds to the story, and Eva Green’s performance is worth the price of admission.  It also might have the best sex scene of 2014, and it’s only February.  While many might have wondered if we needed a sequel to 300, I’m very happy they made it.  Hit the jump to watch the clips and behind-the-scenes footage, and here’s all our previous coverage on the film.

With directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller helming The Lego Movie, I was confident the animated film was going to be something special.  But I will fully admit, the film exceeded my lofty expectations.  Loaded with great animation, a fun story, humor for both kids and adults, and an insanely addictive song (Everything is Awesome) that you’ll be singing again and again, The Lego Movie is truly something special and I’m beyond confident both audiences and critics are going to fall in love with the film.  If you’re not familiar with the movie, it’s been made using a mix of stop-motion and CG animation, and the pic revolves around Emmett (voiced by Chris Pratt), an ordinary construction worker who finds himself anointed “The Special”, a master builder who will lead a band of rebels to save the world from the evil President Business (Will Ferrell).  The film also features the voices of Elizabeth Banks, Morgan Freeman, Liam Neeson, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Charlie Day, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Alison Brie, and many others.

With the film hitting theaters on February 7th, Warner Bros. has provided us with nine clips.  Hit the jump to check them out.  You can also click here for all our previous Lego Movie coverage which includes posters, images, trailers, and more.
