Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released two new TV spots for Godzilla.  I continue to be impressed at how little the studios are showing from the movie.  While other summer blockbusters are rushing to reveal as much as possible, Godzilla is still teasing.  Granted, we’re still six weeks away from the movie’s release, and there’s plenty of time to give away too much, but for the time being, it’s nice to get new footage, but not so much that the film will be slightly less exciting when it arrives.

International Trailer for GODZILLA Showcases New Footage and More Destruction

A new international trailer for director Gareth Evans’ highly anticipated Godzilla has landed online, and it’s quite excellent.  Plenty of new footage can be gleaned from this trailer, as we see much more of the titular creature’s immense amount of destruction and also get a better look at the film’s human characters.  This pic continues to look fantastic, and I’m incredibly eager to see the full feature on a ginormous IMAX screen in a couple of months.

New Full-Length Trailer for GODZILLA Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. have released a new trailer for director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming monster redo Godzilla.  Starring Aaron Taylor-JohnsonBryan Cranston, and Elizabeth Olsen, the film “pits the world’s most famous monster against malevolent creatures who, bolstered by humanity’s arrogance, threaten our very existence.”  This full-length trailer delves a bit deeper into the film’s plot without giving too much away, which is all-too-rare nowadays (ahem, The Amazing Spider-Man 2).  Cranston appears to be the film’s voice of reason as his voice narrates this new trailer, and while we do get hints of a twist on the nuclear origins of the titular monster, the main focus is really on conveying the epic scope of the film through a series of sweeping shots.  Some of the unfinished effects look a little spotty, but all-in-all this is another exciting glimpse at what’s poised to be a monster hit at the box office this summer.  I also like how they’re still keeping any full or clear shots of Godzilla himself out of the marketing—at least for now.

Full Cast and Synopsis Revealed for THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL 2

by     Posted 99 days ago

the-best-exotic-marigold-hotel-slice

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was one of 2012′s sleeper hits.  It was the perfect summer counter-programming to the blockbusters inundating theaters.  John Madden‘s film is a nice, fluffy piece that has charming actors in a story featuring a solid balance of comedy and romance with a little bit of drama thrown in for good measure.  This mixture ended up yielding $136 million worldwide on a reported budget of $10 million, and that’s good enough for Fox Searchlight to make The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 the first sequel in the company’s history.  Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Dev Patel, Celia Imrie, Ronald Pickup, Penelope Wilton, Diana Hardcastle, Tena Desae, and Lillete Dubey are all set to return, and they’ll be joined by Richard Gere, David Strathairn, and Tamsin Greig (Episodes).

Hit the jump for the press release, which contains the synopsis for the movie.  Ol Parker and Madden will return to write and direct, respectively.

International Trailer and TV Spot for GODZILLA Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston

Yesterday, the teaser trailer for Godzilla was released online, and judging by the reaction of the people I follow on Twitter, response was positive.  It’s a well-made trailer, and more importantly, the response shows that people are eager to see the giant monster get a second chance at an American adaptation.   Today, an international trailer and TV spot have gone online, and the tone is the same, but they contain brief new bits of footage.  If yesterday left you with a need for more Godzilla (or a need for actors who will be in Godzilla, since there’s not much of the titular monster at this point), it’s a quick fix.

Hit the jump for the trailer and TV spot.  The film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Juliette BinocheDavid Strathairn, Ken Watanabe, and Sally Hawkins.  Godzilla opens in 3D on May 16, 2014.

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released the first trailer for director Gareth EdwardsGodzilla along with a new poster  If you want to see the titular kaiju, you’re going to be in for a bit of a disappointment, but you should be encouraged by the style Edwards is bringing to the movie.  There are some great-looking shots, especially the opening halo jump and the red smoke clouds following the paratroopers.  And when Godzilla is finally “revealed”, it’s in a stunning, smokey silhouette.  It’s an effective teaser trailer, and I don’t mind waiting to see more while the special effects team attempts to recreate one of cinema’s most memorable monsters.

HBO has become one of the great places for auteurs to make cheaper movies.  Of late we’ve seen Todd Haynes and Steven Soderbergh turn to the channel to get films made, and now Philip Kaufman has joined their ranks.  The man behind The Right Stuff and The Unbearable Lightness of Being directed Hemingway & Gellhorn, a biopic about Ernest Hemingway’s one-time wife and reporter Martha Gellhorn.  And for the film he got Nicole Kidman and Clive Owen to star as his drunken lovers.  Our review of the Blu-ray of Hemingway & Gellhorn follows after the jump.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Juliette Binoche lead a cast that also includes David Strathairn and Bryan Cranson.  Additionally, the press release notes that Ken Watanabe has now joined the film as well.  Though plot details are firmly under wraps, we know from the film’s brief Comic-Con appearance last year that Edwards is taking a grounded, realistic approach to the classic monster.  His take attempts to answer the question, “What would it be like if all of this really happened?”

LINCOLN Clips Reveal Superb Performances of Supporting Cast, Including Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader and David Strathairn

by     Posted 1 year, 160 days ago

lincoln-daniel-day-lewis-slice

Although the last quarter of this year is positively stacked with fantastic films, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln should be on your short list. The period piece is less a cut-and-dry biopic of America’s 16th President, played perfectly as always by Daniel Day-Lewis, and more of an examination of the burdens placed on Lincoln to keep a nation from falling apart while abolishing slavery and attempting to hold his personal life together.  While the film is excellent overall (you can read my review here), a highlight of Lincoln is the excellent supporting cast.  A previous selection of clips focused mainly on the President, but this new batch  shows off snippets of the performances by Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader and David Strathairn to name a few.  Hit the jump to check them out.

Lincoln, also starring Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lee Pace and Hal Holbrook, opens November 16th.

International Trailer for LINCOLN Is the Best One Yet

by     Posted 1 year, 164 days ago

lincoln-daniel-day-lewis-slice

Just in time for Election Day, a new international trailer for director Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln has been released, and it’s by far the best one yet.  This trailer actually delves into the central focus of the long-in-the-works drama—the passing of the 13th Amendment—and gives us a much better idea of what kind of biopic Spielberg and screenwriter Tony Kushner have crafted.  Much of this trailer is reminiscent of The West Wing, with Daniel Day-Lewis’ Lincoln and his advisers working to secure enough votes to ensure that the amendment will pass.  The trailer also teases the multitude of strong performances from the ridiculously talented ensemble, and I can’t wait to see the whole thing unfold onscreen.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Oyelowo, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace and Jared HarrisLincoln opens on November 16th.

First Full Trailer and New Images for Steven Spielberg’s LINCOLN Starring Daniel Day-Lewis

We posted the first teaser trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln earlier this week in anticipation of the full trailer being released during the Google + Q&A.  Now that the full trailer is online, we finally get a chance to hear Daniel Day-Lewis speak as Abraham Lincoln.  If I’m being honest, his choice of tone and inflection is not exactly what I had expected, but who am I to tell Day-Lewis what to do?  There are plenty of scenes in the legislative houses, on the streets and on the battlefield, and they all give a sense of scope and tone to the film, just like Spielberg said it would during the Q&A.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, David Oyelowo, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace and Jared HarrisLincoln opens on November 16th.

First Teaser Trailer for Steven Spielberg’s LINCOLN Starring Daniel Day-Lewis

lincoln-daniel-day-lewis-slice

The first teaser trailer for director Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln has been released.  The teaser comes just days ahead of the first full trailer and live Google+ Q&A with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.  The teaser gives us our first look at Daniel Day-Lewis in motion, though we only see glimpses of him as the titular President.  There’s also a shot of who appears to be David Oyelowo dressed in Union attire as he turns and walks away from Lincoln.  A narration of the Gettysburg address plays over scenes of Civil War combat, but who is speaking remains unclear for the moment.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace, and Jared Harris. Lincoln opens on November 16th.

Bourne Again: Matt Revisits THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM

by     Posted 1 year, 253 days ago

[With The Bourne Legacy set to open this Friday, we'll be taking a look back at the original Bourne trilogy.  These reviews will contain spoilers since the movies have been out for yearsClick here for my review of The Bourne Identity and click here for my review of The Bourne Supremacy.]

In 2004, the post-9/11 American had begun to take shape and The Bourne Supremacy reflected that change.  It provided a conscious subtext, but the movie remained first and foremost an action-thriller.  But by 2007, the change in our country was no longer worthy of a simple observation.  The change had produced a feeling, and that feeling was anger.  We had been misled into a war, and the government was taking extraordinary powers against Americans in the name of protecting Americans.  The Bourne Ultimatum is unapologetically political, which is its greatest weakness and its greatest strength.  Director Paul Greengrass still delivers a pulse-pounding blockbuster that retains the same intensity of Supremacy, but he pushes audiences to not only recognize the seismic shift in our country, but to confront our complicity in it.

Steven Spielberg’s LINCOLN Gets Release Date

lincoln-daniel-day-lewis-movie-image-set-photo-slice-01

Steven Spielberg‘s Abraham Lincoln movie, Lincoln, has landed a release date.  We previously reported that the film would open after the 2012 Presidential election so to as avoid any accusation that the movie was making a political statement (we’ll let the trailers and other advertising allow pundits to bloviate and fill airtime draw their own conclusions).  Disney has announced that the movie will open in limited engagement on November 9th before expanding nationwide on November 16th.  It’s worth noting that Lincoln will still be fighting vampires, except this time it will be at the box office.  The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 also opens on November 16th.

Lincoln stars Daniel Day-Lewis as the 16th President, and the all-star cast also features Sally Field, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tommy Lee Jones, James Spader, John Hawkes, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Strathairn, Walton Goggins, David Oyelowo, Tim Blake Nelson, Bruce McGill, Jackie Earle Haley, Lee Pace, and Jared Harris.
