First BLACK SEA Clip Has Jude Law Explaining the Science Behind Salvaging Nazi Gold

Universal Pictures has released the first clip from Kevin Macdonald‘s upcoming submarine thriller Black Sea. Jude Law stars as a rogue captain who puts together a misfit crew to recover lost Nazi gold from a sunken U-boat, but the claustrophobia becomes even tighter as the crewmates turn on each other in the hope of gaining a greater share of the treasure.  This clip doesn’t highlight the interpersonal drama between the crew as much as it explains to the audience how a treasure from the 1940s could still be salvageable.  I don’t really need to know the science behind preserved Nazi gold, but I don’t mind the inclusion.

Hit the jump to check out the Black Sea clip.  The film opens January 23, 2015, and also stars Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, Michael Smiley, David Threlfall, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Konstantin Khabenskiy, Sergey Kolesnikov, Sergey Puskepalis, and Jodie Whitaker.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Deleted Scene Has Gamora and Nebula Quarreling over Their Killing Skills

With the upcoming release of Guardians of the Galaxy on Blu-ray, Marvel has released a deleted scene from the film.  While the movie is filled with great characters, I felt that Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) didn’t get as much attention.  Gamora had to be the grown up in the room, and Nebula’s only real purpose was to fight Gamora.  However, after watching this deleted scene, leaving them on the cutting room floor may have been a wise decision.  This scene adds nothing to the film (we know Gamora and Nebula are rivals), and the line readings are stilted and melodramatic.  Guardians of the Galaxy is a space opera, but this is from a soap opera.

Hit the jump to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene.  The film hits shelves on December 9th, and stars Chris Pratt, Dave BautistaLee PaceGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly and Peter Serafinowicz and features the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.  Click here and here for more clips from the Blu-ray, and click here to pre-order.

Exclusive BAD TURN WORSE Clip Has a Plan To Get the Money

by     Posted 5 days ago

bad-turn-worse-clip

I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about the new film Bad Turn Worse and this clip “Money” certainly backs up a lot of them.  As a native Texan its refreshing to see a film that, by all appearances so far at least, plays with an ever so slightly heightened version of the state’s flavor without making it a pandering caricature.

The film was written by Dutch Southern (let’s stop for a moment and tip our hat to that name) and was directed by Simon Hawkins and Zeke Hawkins.  It stars Mackenzie Davis (AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire,” What If), Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless”), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, CW’s “Supernatural”), and veteran William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, FOX’s “24” Series).  The film opens in select theaters Nationwide and VOD platforms Friday, November 14th from Starz Digital.  Hit the jump for our Bad Turn Worse clip.

The Weinstein Company has released six new clips from The Imitation Game online.  The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Alan Turing, a brilliant cryptanalyst whose expertise cracked Germany’s “Enigma code” and helped turn the tide of World War II for the Allies, but his homosexuality made him a target of persecution.  I saw the film at TIFF, quite enjoyed it, and am very eager to see it again.  Also, if you don’t need to worry about these clips spoiling the best moments from the movie.  They’re definitely good, but they won’t diminish your experience when you see the entire film.

The marketing campaign for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has delivered loads of stunning imagery, but it’s tough to assess the film’s potential based on pretty pictures and quick-cutting trailers alone.  I thought that might change after seeing a clip from the film, but the big takeaway from the one that just dropped isn’t the tone or the dynamic between Christian Bale’s Moses and Joel Edgerton’s Ramses, but rather the incredible mid-battle imagery, especially those aerial shots of Ramses’ army about to pummel the enemy with an onslaught horse-drawn chariots.  It’s also a frustratingly brilliant move to have the piece end so abruptly.  It certainly left me eager to find out what goes down after the clip wraps up.

Hit the jump to check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings clip.  The film arrives in theaters in 3D on December 5th and also stars Ben KingsleyAaron PaulJohn Turturro and Sigourney Weaver.

Ready to get a taste of a possible Oscar-worthy performance?  Fox Searchlight just unveiled the very first clip from Jean-Marc Vallée’s Wild.  The film is based on Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, which chronicles her 1,100-mile hike from the Mojave Desert to the border of Washington State while revealing what sparked the need to make the lengthy journey along the way.  In a TIFF edition of Oscar Beat, Adam dubbed Witherspoon’s work in the film “her best performance to date.”

This new Wild clip doesn’t really have “Academy Award” written all over it, but it is a charming scenario and Witherspoon does make a convincing plea for chips and a lemonade Snapple upon her arrival at the very first stop on her 1,100-mile trek, Kennedy Meadows.  Hit the jump to check it out for yourself.  Wild arrives in select theaters on December 5th and also stars Laura DernMichiel HuismanGaby HoffmanThomas Sadoski and Kevin Rankin.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire made room for new players like Sam Claflin’s Finnick Odair, Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason and Jeffrey Wright’s Beetee, but The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 introduces far more new main characters, a number of which will likely have a significant presence in the final two films.  A brand new clip from the movie just dropped and it offers a brief introduction to Katniss’ camera team.  As the Mockingjay, it’s Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) responsibility to inspire the nation to fight back via propos – interviews, messages or wartime footage featuring Katniss supporting the rebel war effort – and the folks behind those videos are franchise newcomers Cressida (Natalie Dormer), Castor (Wes Chatham), Pollux (Elden Henson) and Messalla (Evan Ross).

You can catch them as well as Mahershala Ali as Boggs, Katniss’ personal bodyguard, in the latest The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 clip after the jump.  The film hits theaters on November 21st and also stars Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore and Donald Sutherland.

Horrible Bosses 2 is inching closer to that November 26th release date, so Warner Bros. just unleashed another clip from the film.  Nick (Jason Bateman), Dale (Charlie Day) and Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) are back, but this time around, they want to be their own bosses so launch a business of their own, but based on what goes down in that clip featuring Kevin Spacey that dropped yesterday, it doesn’t look like they’re very good at it.

A second clip just surfaced showing what happens when Nick walks into Julia’s (Jennifer Aniston) sex addiction group therapy session under the impression that it’s an AA meeting.  I can’t say it’s laugh-out-loud funny, but Bateman, Day and Sudeikis still make for a charming trio and there’s also still some fun to be had with Aniston’s outrageous character as well.  Hit the jump to check out the new Horrible Bosses 2 clip.  The film also stars Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz and Jamie Foxx.

After all those posters, TV spots and trailers, it’s about time we’re getting our very first clip from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, but the reveal is actually a little underwhelming because the clip isn’t as wow-worthy as all of the other promos.  It’s not a bad scene by any means, but it does seem like an odd choice for a first clip.  First off, we’ve seen a good deal of this footage in trailers already and secondly, it just ends so abruptly.  Again, there’s nothing wrong with the material, it just isn’t a particularly satisfying standalone clip nor is it one that leaves you thinking, “I’ve got to see what happens next.”

We may have Doctor Strange on the brain right now courtesy of Marvel’s big day yesterday, but let’s not forget, Benedict Cumberbatch could be on his way to his very first Academy Award nomination as well.  He leads the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival Audience Award winning film, The Imitation Game, as Alan Turing, a British cryptologist determined to solve the most difficult problem in the world, the German Enigma Code.

Even though Charles Dance’s Commander Denniston thinks breaking the Enigma Code is impossible, Turing isn’t fazed by the challenge in the least.  In fact, he refuses to dub the task unbreakable just yet.  He insists, “Let me try, and we’ll know for sure.”  Hit the jump to see what happens when Turing is first given the opportunity to try to crack the code in the new The Imitation Game clip.  The Weinstein Company is giving the film a limited release on November 21st.  It also stars Keira KnightleyMatthew GoodeCharles DanceMark StrongRory KinnearAllen Leech and Matthew Beard.

Focus Features just unveiled some brand new promotional material for The Theory of Everything, paving the way to the film’s limited release on November 7th.  The clip is a bit on the schmaltzy side, but Adam’s predicating that both Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones could score some Oscar nods, so I’m going to take his word for it and assume that both will do big things with the material in the full feature.

In addition, we’ve also got a brand new featurette for the film in which Redmayne and Jones discuss Stephen Hawking and Jane Wilde’s loving relationship.  Hit the jump to check that out as well as the new The Theory of Everything clip.  The film also stars Charlie CoxEmily Watson and David Thewlis.
