New TOP FIVE Clips Provide a Bigger Glimpse at Chris Rock’s New Comedy

by     Posted 11 days ago

top-five-clips

I still haven’t had a chance to see the new Chris Rock comedy Top Five, which not only stars the comedian, but was written and directed by him as well.  The first trailer and the red band trailer are both great, and these three new clips provide a further look (even if it’s a brief one) inside the tone of the movie, which seems to be a more grounded, observational type of comedy than something like Grown Ups (which Rock only acted in).  It only makes sense that this more personal material would retain more of Rock’s actual comedic voice.

Check out the new Top Five clips.  The film also stars Rosario DawsonJ.B. SmooveGabrielle UnionTracy MorganCedric the EntertainerKevin HartJerry SeinfeldAdam SandlerWhoopi GoldbergSherri ShepherdJay PharoahAnders Holm, and Michael Che, and features music by Questlove.  Top Five opens in theaters on December 12th.

20th Century Fox just released a brand new Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette in which director Ridley Scott states the obvious, that his latest is epic in scale, but the studio also just unveiled two new clips that offer up a taste of some of the quieter, more intimate moments of the film.  The first gives us our first good look at Maria Valverde’s Zipporah as she runs through what makes Moses (Christian Bale) happy – while her bracelets jingle incessantly – and then the second shows what happens when you lie to Ramses (Joel Edgerton).

They’re both quality clips, but I also can’t say there’s anything particularly mind-blowing about them that’ll have you eager to see the film as soon as it comes out.  Hit the jump to check out both Exodus: Gods and Kings clips as well as that aforementioned featurette.  The film hits theaters on December 5th and also stars John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley.

We just saw Nick (Jason Bateman) unknowingly step into a sex addiction group therapy session and the guys go at it with Kevin Spacey’s Dave Harken in prison, but now it’s time for seven additional Horrible Bosses 2 clips.  They’re not all big winners, but the “kidnaping” gag from the film’s trailers works wells and the chemistry between Bateman, Charlie Day and Jason Sudeikis still packs the power to entertain and put a smile on your face.  This new batch of clips also includes some material with Jamie Foxx as Nick, Dale and Kurt’s personal murder consultant Dean “Motherf*cker” Jones and Christoph Waltz as Burt Hanson, the investor who steals Nick, Dale and Kurt’s big idea, but it’s Chris Pine as Burt’s rather unhinged son, Rex, who looks to be one of the more promising supporting characters on the roster.

Hit the jump to check out all nine Horrible Bosses 2 clips for yourself.  The Sean Anders-directed film is set to arrive in theaters on November 26th and also stars Jennifer Aniston.

I’m so exceed to see Birdman, a dark comedy starring Michael Keaton that director Alejandro González Iñárritu staged to appear as one long, continuous shot.  The film stars Keaton as an actor who once played an iconic superhero, and now faces troubles with his ego and family as he prepares to mount a Broadway play in a bid to reclaim past glory.  Two new clips from the film hit today, and both of them feature Keaton going toe-to-toe with Edward Norton as a smarmy New York theater actor.  And they’re great.  We’ve also got a look at a few city specific posters for the movie.

Fox’s Gotham premieres in just a few days, so I can’t see it taking much more than these six clips to tide you guys over until then.  To be perfectly honest, this show is so far removed from my own personal tastes that I don’t feel qualified to tell you whether these clips are “good” or “bad.”  They just exist.  The show features  James Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) and Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor), along with Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney.

Hit the jump to check out the Gotham clips.  Be prepared for the Batverse to feel very different from both the Nolan and Burton takes on the world (so far, at least).  Gotham is set to kick off on Monday, September 22nd and also stars Donal Logue, John DomanBarbara KeanCamren BicondovaSean PertweeCory Michael Smith and Zabryna Guevara.

what-if-clips-daniel-radcliffe

CBS Films has released two new What If clips (in addition to the six clips released earlier this week) along with a behind-the-scenes featurette for the film.  It stars Daniel Radcliffe as a medical school dropout who strikes up a friendly relationship with a young animator (Zoe Kazan), but they start to wonder if the chemistry between them outweighs her relationship with her longtime boyfriend (Rafe Spall).  I’ve heard this film is really, really good (read Matt’s review) and I can’t wait to see it.  I’m a sucker for good rom-coms, and this one looks like it’s staking a claim on the territory.

Hit the jump to check out the What If clips.  The film also stars Adam Driver, Mackenzie Davis, Megan Park, and Oona Chaplin.  What If opens in limited release on August 8th and expands nationwide on August 22nd.

New LIFE AFTER BETH Clips Tease Comedy Over Horror

by     Posted 141 days ago

life-after-beth-clips

I’m not gonna lie, I’m sort of excited for Life After Beth.  I’ve heard that director Jeff Baena’s film is fun yet slight, but it seems like the kind of slight I could get into.  And A24 has just released two clips that continue to further my anticipation of a film I might enjoy in the most casual of ways.  The film stars Dane DeHaan as a young man whose girlfriend (Aubrey Plaza) comes back from the dead, only to start deteriorating into a flesh-craving zombie.  One of these new clips highlights the apparent fact that smooth jazz can soothe a zombie while the other is more of a John Hughes-ish look at the dynamic between DeHaan and his older brother in the film that has a bit of a “Wyatt vs. Chet” Weird Science vibe.

Hit the jump to watch the Life After Beth clips. You can also check out Adam’s Sundance interviews with Plaza & DeHaan and writer/director Jeff Baena.  The film also stars Matthew Gray Gubler, Paul Reiser, Anna Kendrick, and Cheryl HinesLife After Beth debuts exclusively on DirecTV on July 17th and opens in limited release on August 15th.

Last night marked the Star Wars Rebels presentation at the Gaslamp 15 during the San Diego Comic-Con during which several new clips and a new trailer debuted.  All three clips continue in the aesthetic that we’ve seen from the show so far.  So if you dug last week’s trailer, you’ll dig these.  I’m sort of surprised that this series seems to have much more narrative consistency than the prequels

The show premieres on Disney XD in the fall and also features the voices of Vanessa Marshall, David Oyelowo and Steven Jay Blum. If you’d like to catch what the show’s bringing to Comic-Con, the “Heroes of Stars Wars Rebels” panel will take place on Thursday, July 24th with executive producers Dave Filoni and Simon Kinberg as well as Prinze Jr., Marshall, Blum, Gray and Tiya Sircar.  Hit the jump for the new Star Wars Rebels Comic-Con Clips.
