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.

New Trailer for A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD Starring Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney

Fox has released a new trailer for A Good Day to Die Hard.  Usually at this point, the trailers begin to reveal the basic plot (and some go too far and reveal the whole movie).  However, the fifth Die Hard is a little over a month away, and I still don’t know what the plot is beyond “McClane n’ Son fight bad Russians.”  The Die Hard movies have never been complex, but the villain always has a clear motive, so we know what John McClane is trying to stop.  I think the bad guy in this movie wants nukes or something, but even that seems kind of vague.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film stars Bruce Willis, Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Anne Vyalitsyna, and Mary Elizabeth WinsteadA Good Day to Die Hard opens February 14th.

It looks like Antoine Fuqua’s Olympus Has Fallen will get a chance to take down the White House before Roland Emmerich’s White House Down as it is now slated to open first by about three months.  Starring Gerard Butler as a disgraced Secret Service agent called back to duty when terrorists take over the White House, Olympus Has Fallen will star Aaron Eckhart as the President in Peril. (Emmerich’s film stars Channing Tatum as the heroic Secret Service agent with Jamie Foxx playing the President.)

First Trailer for A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD

The first trailer for the sequel A Good Day to Die Hard has been released.  The story takes place in Moscow and sees Bruce Willis’ John McClane teaming up with his estranged son (Jai Courtney) to take on some Russian baddies.  The new trailer doesn’t elaborate on the story, but it does show off plenty of action, which is probably a good idea considering this is a Die Hard movie.  I still can’t bring myself to get on board with a PG-13 Die Hard film, and I don’t know what director John Moore will bring to the project, but this is a fun trailer, and I especially like the remixing of “Ode to Joy”.

The ambitions of the team of US marshals at the center of NBC’s new fast-paced law enforcement drama are clear: we’re here to catch the bad guys. If Law & Order challenges your mind too much but CSI: Miami just makes you feel dirty, then Chase just might have enough action and standard police procedural fare to satisfy. But the real question is whether or not Annie Frost (Kelli Giddish) and her top notch team chasing the most notorious and ruthless criminals in the state of Texas are enough to make Chase worth your pursuit. Find out after the jump.
