Watch the Final Battle from GODZILLA and Add Some Monster Mayhem to Your Day

by     Posted 6 hours ago

Godzilla lived up to big expectations assuming you expected it to be a true Godzilla movie.  There wasn’t much in the way of interesting human characters or deep personal drama.  It was about giant monsters fighting, and director Gareth Edwards handled it wonderfully.  It will be four years until we get the sequel, but with the promise of Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah, I’m hoping it will be worth the wait.  In the meantime, we can enjoy the excellent final battle from this year’s movie.  I won’t lie: It’s not quite as powerful when viewed on a computer monitor, but it’s still entertaining.  Atomic breath is always entertaining.

Watch: The Best GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Scene Is Now Online

by     Posted One week ago

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has a number of memorable sequences thanks largely to Chris Pratt and a killer soundtrack, but one sequence in particular is positively swell.  The scene comes from the latter third of the film and involves a certain dance, and I’d argue that it is impossible not to smile when watching it.  Since the scene could be considered a spoiler, many were remiss to talk about it openly for fear of spoiling the surprise, but the scene has now been released online in its entirety and it is glorious.  I’m keeping it vague here on the front page for those that haven’t seen the movie yet, but if you have, odds are you know exactly what I’m talking about.

THE GIVER Clip: Hologram Taylor Swift Plays Piano

The Weinstein Company has released a new The Giver clip from director Philip Noyce’s adaptation of the Lois Lowry novel, this time featuring Taylor Swift.  I’m still not sure what to make of the film as a whole.  I read the book as a kid and enjoyed it immensely, but it’s been marketed heavily as a kind of Hunger Games riff.  I’m not sure if this is simply a case of getting audiences into the theater or if the trailers are really indicative of the film, but I’m hoping it’s a more introspective piece in line with Lowry’s novel.  For those unfamiliar, the story takes place in a utopian society where all memories of the past reside with a sage figure known as “The Giver”.  This new clip shows Jeff Bridges’ Giver character talking about the previous recipient of his memories (Swift), revealing a musical hologram of the two.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Clip Features Turtle Beatboxing, Shredder and More

I don’t even know where to begin with this first clip from Jonathan Liebesman’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because there are actually quite a few elements worth highlighting.  First off, it delivers a solid laugh courtesy of a mid-chase Turtles beatbox session, then they run right into Shredder and after that, we finally hear one of our heroes shout an iconic Turtles catchphrase.  It’s pretty satisfying for less than two minutes of material.

You can catch the Turtles in action in the clip after the jump and, in case you missed it, we’ve also got some set visit coverage up and running including a main report and an interview with Megan Fox and Will Arnett as well as a bunch of brand new stills from the film.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles arrives in theaters on Friday, August 8th and also stars William Fichtner, Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub.

CBS Films has released six What If clips along with a behind-the-scenes featurette.  The film 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 really enjoyed the film when I saw it at TIFF last year (back when it had the better title “The F Word“), and I look forward to seeing it again when it opens later this month.

Hit the jump to check out the What If clips and featurette.  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 GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Clip Has a Finger on the Pulse of the Film’s Humor

by     Posted 30 days ago

We’re walking a fine line with Marvel’s marketing for Guardians of the Galaxy, with one side being in danger of giving away too much and the other offering teases to fans and newcomers alike.  In the last four days alone, we’ve seen not one, but two clips from the film.  Now, since audience reactions to an early screening were overwhelmingly positive, perhaps they want to encourage that great word of mouth with yet another clip.  This one does a solid job of not only showing off the film’s sense of humor, but further exploring the relationships between the characters early on in their tenuous arrangement.  Good stuff, but I’ve already seen more than enough to convince me to check this one out in theaters.

Starring Chris PrattZoe SaldanaDave BautistaLee PaceKaren GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz, and featuring the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin DieselGuardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st.  Hit the jump to check out the latest clip.

INTO THE STORM Clip Shows Sarah Wayne Callies and Richard Armitage Getting Too Close to an Incoming Tornado

We’ve come a long way since Twister’s flying cows.  We’ve already seen loads of destruction in the first two trailers for Steven Quale’s Into the Storm and also read quite a bit about it in Dave’s set visit reports, but now it’s time to get a sense of what just a single one of these tornados is capable of in the very first clip from the film.

When the town of Silverton is ravaged by a freak onslaught of twisters, Sarah Wayne Callies’ Allison, a meteorologist working alongside a team of storm chasers, is pretty much asking to have an up close and personal encounter with a vicious cyclone and, sure enough, she winds up getting closer than anyone.  Hit the jump to see what happens in the first Into the Storm clip.  The film will arrive in theaters on August 8th in 2D and IMAX, and also stars Richard Armitage, Matt Walsh, Alycia Debnam-CareyArlen Escarpeta, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Jeremy Sumpter, Kyle DavisJon Reep, and Scott Lawrence.

With just a little over a week to go until its big release, early Guardians of the Galaxy reactions are coming in and, as we told you yesterday, they’re tremendously positive.  There’s always been a chance this whole thing could go south considering it’s such an unusual and highly stylized Marvel film, but ever since that very first trailer dropped back in February, it really did seem like James Gunn pulled it off.  At this point we’ve got loads of quality promotional material to further prove Guardians could be a standout, all of these adoring first reactions, and now we can add a solid extended clip from the film to the collection, too.

The piece is nearly five minutes long and gives us some serious background on all five main characters and also an extensive look at what goes down when the team is thrown in The Kyln.  Guardians of the Galaxy arrives in theaters in 3D on August 1st.  It stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee PaceKaren GillanGlenn CloseBenicio Del ToroMichael RookerJohn C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz, and features the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.  Hit the jump for the Guardians of the Galaxy extended clip.

Marvel has released the first Guardians of the Galaxy clip online, and it showcases a scene that should be familiar to anyone who has seen the trailers.  The scene focuses on Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) trying to take an orb only to be interrupted by Korath (Djimon Hounsou).  What’s interesting about the clip is how it plays in the larger context of a scene rather than cherry-picking the snappiest parts and leaving out the plot points as opposed to how we’ve seen the scene in the trailers.

LIFE AFTER BETH Clip: Dane DeHaan’s Girlfriend Is Back from the Dead

life-after-beth-clip

A24 Films has released a new Life After Beth clip for director Jeff Baena’s upcoming comedy.  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.  This new clip comes from a scene early in the film, when DeHaan barges into his girlfriend’s house where he finds her parents (played wonderfully by John C. Reilly and Molly Shannon) are keeping their reanimated daughter hidden.  I caught the pic at Sundance and while it’s very funny, it has a little trouble settling on a tone.  At times it’s a straight-up comedy, at other times it’s a relationship drama, and at other times it’s a flat-out zombie movie.  Nevertheless, Plaza turns in a delightful performance as the titular Beth, proving her range goes much further than deadpan.

Hit the jump to watch the Life After Beth clip, and be sure to check out my 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.

LUCY Red-Band Clip Featuring Scarlett Johansson Using Less Than 100% of Her Brain

by     Posted 43 days ago

scarlett-johansson-lucy-red-band-clip

Let’s get something out of the way right now: the idea that humans only use 10% of their brain and could be superhuman if only we tapped into that other 90% is utter nonsense.  Aside from being categorically incorrect, it’s tired and lazy even as movie tropes go, and I want to believe that the majority of audiences know better and respond with an eye-roll upon hearing it.  That being said, writer-director Luc Besson’s Lucy could be a fun female-led action flick with literally almost any other explanation (nano-tech, genetic recombination, anything else…).  Case in point, now available for your viewing pleasure is the first red-band clip from the film featuring star Scarlett Johansson showing off her new-found abilities that are but a fraction of her eventual potential.  It’s such a shame that the man behind The Fifth Element and one of few women holding their own in superhero movies are restricted by something as idiotic as the 10% myth.  Hit the jump to watch the clip.  Lucy opens July 25th.

New BOYHOOD Clip Lets Us Know that Conversations Should Unfold Naturally

boyhood-ethan-hawke-ellar-coltrane

IFC Films has released a new Boyhood clip online.  The film stars Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as a divorced couple raising their son Mason (Ellar Coltrane) and daughter Samantha (Lorelei Linklater), and it was shot over a period of 12 years.  Director Richard Linklater filmed scenes for the pic every year for over a decade with the same actors, and the result is a movie that tracks the adolescence of young Mason through the formative experiences that shape and mold him into the man he will become.  Like some of Linklater’s other movies, the majority of the picture is just people talking, but every conversation has weight because it lives in the little moments rather than grand speeches.  As Ethan Hawke’s character says in this clip while trying to talk to the young Mason and Samantha, “We should just let it happen more natural.”  Boyhood is currently my favorite film of the year, and I can’t wait for audiences to finally see it.

SEX TAPE Clip and Images: Cameron Diaz Does Her Best Rollergirl Impression

Sony Pictures has released the first Sex Tape clip from director Jake Kasdan’s upcoming comedy, as well as a batch of new high-resolution images from the film.  The pic stars Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz as a couple who, after discovering that their three-hour intimate video has accidentally been uploaded to the cloud, set out to delete the video from the iPads of their friends and family and ensure that their reputations aren’t ruined.  This new clip appears to be a scene from the “inciting incident” that leads to the aforementioned sex tape, as Segel’s character is very excited about Diaz’s sexy mobile get-up.  Segel also shares screenplay credit on the film with Nicholas Stoller and Kate Angelo, which is encouraging.  He and Diaz are both talented comedic actors and I’m a big fan of Kasdan’s Walk Hard, so hopefully this one delivers on the promise of a solid summer comedy.

WISH I WAS HERE Clip: Zach Braff and Donald Faison Go for a Spin

Focus Features has released a new Wish I Was Here clip from co-writer/director Zach Braff’s upcoming comedic drama.  Braff also stars in the film as a struggling actor, father, and husband who is seeking purpose in life and trying to come to terms with the impending death of his father (Mandy Patinkin).  This new clip features a scene between Braff and his Scrubs co-star/friend Donald Faison, who plays a high-end car salesman.  It’s a funny scene, and it’s indicative of some of the goofier moments from the film.  I caught the pic and Sundance and found it to be rather disappointing, but it’s not without merit.  The humor is mostly spot-on and Kate Hudson is genuinely great as Braff’s supportive wife.
