Watch out, people.  We’re getting a blockbuster movie that isn’t a remake/reboot/sequel/prequel or adaptation.  Transcendence is an original screenplay, it’s the directorial debut of Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister (Inception), and it has a cool concept.  For those that don’t know, Johnny Depp plays a scientist who uploads his mind into a computer.  And in another surprising twist, Depp’s character isn’t covered in makeup and wearing a wacky costume.  This should be interesting.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 25 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Transcendence.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film also stars Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Cole Hauser, and Clifton Collins Jr.  Transcendence opens in traditional theaters and IMAX on April 18th.

It’s time for another horror movie, isn’t it?  You have to go all the way back to January for some horror flicks, and so it’s about time we get a new one in 2014.  Thankfully for horror fans, they’re about get a fresh horror flick with Oculus.  It’s an indie feature, so for those who aren’t aware of the plot, it stars Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) and Brenton Thwaites as siblings who set out to prove that an ominous mirror is responsible for the death of their parents 10 years prior, as well as the deaths of countless others over the centuries.

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Judging by the enthusiastic response thus far, Captain America: The Winter Soldier might be the best Marvel movie yet.  Personally, I couldn’t be more excited.  Captain America: The First Avenger is my favorite movie of Phase One, I think Chris Evans is perfect as the character, and I just love his honest, moral compass, which was so easily boiled down to “I don’t like bullies” in the first film.  But now the stakes have been significantly raised as he’s not only in a new time period, but also working with an organization that doesn’t quite share his values.  I’m not surprised the film’s getting a lot of love, and I can’t wait to see it for myself.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 10 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Anthony Mackie, Georges St-Pierre, Frank Grillo, Hayley Atwell, Toby Jones, Emily VanCamp, Maximiliano Hernández, Robert Redford, and Samuel L.

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See VERONICA MARS

Okay, “marshmallows”, after a seven-year absence, private investigator Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) is back.  The show’s devoted fan-base powered the film adaptation to a lightning-fast $2 million Kickstarter goal and beyond.  As you’ve seen from the trailer, there’s a lot of love for the fans, but from what I’ve heard, this isn’t going to be off-putting to everyone else.  I believe that the show’s inherent charm can woo the uninitiated, and have them running back to see where the drama all began.  So whether you’re a fan or a newbie, all are welcome.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Veronica Mars, and since the movie involves a high-school reunion, the first 10 pass holders to bring their high school yearbook to the screening will win priority seating for themselves and one guest.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  Veronica Mars hits VOD and opens in theaters on March 14th.

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See 300: RISE OF AN EMPIRE

Zack Snyder‘s 300 is goofy fun, and while he didn’t direct the new sequel, 300: Rise of an Empire, the visual aesthetic, straight-faced melodrama, and ridiculous action appear to have remained in place.  I’m not expecting a radical leap forward from the first movie; I’m expecting a delightfully silly picture where spear-wielding guys in loincloths try to kill other spear-wielding guys in loincloths.  There’s no need to over-complicate things here.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of 300: Rise of an Empire.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film stars Sullivan Stapleton, Eva Green, Rodrigo Santoro, Lena Headey, Jack O’Connell, Hans Matheson, David Wenham, Igal Nao, and Andrew Tiernan300: Rise of an Empire opens in 2D, 3D, and IMAX 3D on March 7th.

Being an action hero badass is Liam Neeson‘s thing now, and the world is a better place for it.  Even if the surrounding movie isn’t very good, he’s always the best part of it.  The gun-firing, face-punching, growly Neeson is the one we want to see, and we’re going to have a chance to him at it again with his latest film, Non-Stop.  The film is about Neeson hunting a bad guy on an airplane.  I don’t think I have to do much more to sell it, but if you need some extra encouragement, click here.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Non-Stop.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film also stars Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery, Nate Parker, Scoot McNairy, Lupita Nyong’o, Linus Roache, Anson Mount, and Corey StollNon-Stop opens February 28th.

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to 3 DAYS TO KILL

Kevin Costner is having a career renaissance. After having a string of flops in the mid-2000s, he came back with an award-winning performance in Hatfields & McCoys followed by a strong supporting performance in Man of Steel, and now he has at least three pictures slated for 2014. He gave a supporting turn in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, but now he’ll be front-and-center in the action film 3 Days to Kill. If you can buy Costner as a gun-wielding badass (and there’s no reason you shouldn’t) then this should be a fun flick.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of 3 Days to Kill. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free. The film also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Connie Nielsen, and Amber Heard. 3 Days to Kill opens February 21st.

Because of the snowstorm, our previous screening of Pompeii was canceled, to which I can only say, “At least we weren’t destroyed by lava and frozen in time by volcanic ash.”  Thankfully, we’re doing another screening, and so I will repeat my previous comment about how this movie looks like Gladiator but with lava.  I don’t know what else I can say to try and convince you to see it.

Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 action film RoboCop is a classic, and it’s very difficult to remake classics.  I have mixed feelings about trying to redo this film, but I was somewhat encouraged last year at Comic-Con when director Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) noted that there will be social commentary in his version just as Verhoeven has satire in his.  While I highly doubt Padilha’s film will have a toxic-waste-degenerated henchman getting destroyed by a car, the remake could still be entertaining in its own way.

Atlanta Readers: Win Passes to See THE MONUMENTS MEN

I consider George Clooney‘s directing work to be 4-for-4.  Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is a brilliant debut, Good Night, and Good Luck. is a perfectly timed critique of the Bush Administration, Leatherheads is a ton of fun, and The Ides of March, while it has some issues, is still an assured piece of filmmaking.  His latest, The Monuments Men, has a terrific premise—a true story about a group of soldiers trying to rescue art from the Nazis—and an outstanding cast.  I have no reason to believe he won’t be 5-for-5.

I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 20 admit-two passes to The Monuments Men.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The Monuments Men opens on February 7th, and stars George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, Jean Dujardin, Hugh Bonneville, and Cate Blanchett.

It’s odd for my most-anticipated film of the year to come so early, but here we are.  I’m excited out of my mind for The LEGO Movie to where I have to consciously keep my high expectations in check.  But when you have Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the directors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street, working in the LEGO world, and just about every piece of advertising has been incredibly funny, it’s hard to keep saying, “It could be bad” when my primary thought is, “This is going to be awesome.  It’s right there in the title song, ‘Everything Is Awesome’”.

I’m incredibly pleased to announced that we’re giving away 5 family-four packs of passes, so you don’t have to be a terrible parent and choose between your children (unless you have more than five people in your family; then someone is going to be unhappy).  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  Also, click here for nine clips we just posted.  The film features the voices of Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, Liam Neeson, and Morgan FreemanThe LEGO Movie opens in 3D on February 7th.

Paul W.S. Anderson’s movies are really silly, and Pompeii is one of the greatest archeological finds in human history.  Throw them together, and you’ve got a film that could be incredibly entertaining.  Judging by the trailer, his new film, Pompeii, looks like Gladiator but with lava, and if there’s one thing Gladiator was missing, it was lava.  Am I saying Pomepii will be better than Gladiator?  I don’t know, but I do know it will have 100% more lava.  That’s worth the price of admission.

But you won’t have to pay anything if you get a free ticket.  I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of VIP tickets to an early screening of Pompeii for our Atlanta readers.  And what makes these tickets “very important”?  Because you’ll also win a meet & greet with stars Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbage (Lost).  Hit the jump to find out how you can win.  The film also stars Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jessica Lucas, and Jared HarrisPompeii opens in 3D on February 21st.

Last year, we did Atlanta screenings for 38 movies, and received hundreds of entries from our readers.  It’s so great to get up in front of an audience at one of our screenings, plug the site for people who don’t know it, and when I say “Collider.com”, our readers cheer.  We’re going to keep doing screenings in 2014, and we’re hitting the ground running with one of the best films of 2013, Her.  The movie had a limited release in New York and L.A., and is now expanding to other cities.  I’ve been recommending this film non-stop (here’s my full review), and I can’t wait for more people to see it.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 20 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of Her.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Amy Adams, Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, and Scarlett JohanssonHer opens wide on January 10th.

This year, we’ve run plenty of pass giveaways for our Atlanta readers, and you guys have always shown up in full force.  For some of these movies, I received hundreds of entries, and it was always a bummer I could only pick a handful.  But we’re going to continue doing these, and we’ll be finishing out 2013 with a screening of Lone SurvivorI had mixed feelings on the movie, but I saw it with an audience, and they applauded at the end.  There was even a woman behind me who was crying.  Whatever qualms I had with the film, it’s never cynical and it hits hard.

American Hustle will probably be one of the major players in this year’s awards race.  It’s already been honored by the New York Film Critics Circle for Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence), and it recently landed on the American Film Institute’s Top 10 movies of the year.  I’ll have my review up on Thursday, but I’ll say this for the film right now: it’s a lot of fun, but in a way that’s different from director David O. Russell‘s previous movie, Silver Linings Playbook.  If you’re looking for a good night out, this flick my fit the bill.

I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 30 pairs of passes to the Atlanta screening of American Hustle.  Hit the jump to find out how you can see the movie early and for free.  The film also stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy RennerAmerican Hustle opens in limited release on December 13th and goes wide on December 20th.
