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.

Hit the jump to check out the new Birdman clips and posters.  The film also stars Naomi WattsEmma StoneZach GalifianakisAndrea Riseborough, and Amy Ryan.  Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) opens in select theaters on October 17th. Just a heads up that the language in these scenes is NSFW.

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 91 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.
