20th Century Fox has released the first Gone Girl trailer. Directed by David Fincher, the adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name stars Ben Affleck as a man who becomes the lead suspect when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary.  This trailer continues Fincher’s streak of brilliantly repurposing songs to introduce his films to audiences (“Creep” for The Social Network and “Immigrant Song” for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as a rendition of Elvis Costello‘s “She” plays over a series of scenes from the dark drama that tell viewers everything may not be exactly as clear-cut as it seems.  I enjoyed Flynn’s novel and I’m incredibly eager to see how Fincher chronicles the twisted relationship between Affleck’s Nick and Pike’s Amy, and this debut trailer is an excellent mood-setter for the pic.  October cannot come fast enough.

Universal has released a new TV spot for A Million Ways to Die in the West.  The story revolves around a cowardly farmer (MacFarlane) who backs out of a gunfight and subsequently loses his girlfriend.  When he later meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who teaches him how to shoot, he gets an opportunity to win his pride back, but must choose between reclaiming an old love or kindling a new one.  The plot thickens when the outlaw returns to claim his woman.  I’m really looking forward to this movie, especially since this TV spot shows the jokes won’t just be foul language and slapstick.  There’s also a business called the “Moustachery”.

Hit the jump to check out the TV spot.  The film also stars Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Sarah Silverman, Giovanni Ribisi, and Neil Patrick HarrisA Million Ways to Die in the West opens on May 30th.

TOP 5: Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons Join BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN, NEIGHBORS, THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, INTERSTELLAR, A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST

by     Posted 75 days ago

With an Oscar nod for Best Documentary under its belt and Matt having named it his favorite film of 2013, the last thing Joshua Oppenheimer‘s The Act of Killing needs is an endorsement from me. And yet, here it is. I watched the film on Netflix several weeks ago and, to be honest, I’m still having trouble coming to grips with it. It’s the most the surreal and disturbing look at human atrocity I’ve seen and the more I think about its subjects and overall approach, the more I’m in awe of the fact that it exists. I drown in hyperbole when thinking of words to describe it because it’s so profound that calling it a “good film” seems not like an understatement but a complete inaccuracy. The Act of Killing is not a “good film”, it’s a stunning work of humanity that makes awards, critical reception, the sentence I’m typing at this very moment, etc., seem absolutely trivial.

Speaking of trivial, in what may go down as one of the worst segues in Collider history, I’ll now attempt to jump into this week’s Top 5. Highlighted today is Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons joining Zack Snyder‘s Batman vs. Superman, Steve’s Neighbors set visit coverage, the first trailer for The Fault in Our Stars, Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar being exempt from Paramount’s digital mandate, and the first trailer for Seth MacFarlane‘s A Million Ways to Die in the West. Keep reading for a brief recap and link to each of the above.

Universal Pictures has released the first red-band trailer for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s latest directorial feature A Million Ways to Die in the West.  It’s also MacFarlane’s live-action acting debut, and judging from this first look, he’s actually a bit more reserved than his animated counterparts.  The dangers of the wild west more than make up for MacFarlane’s toned-down performance as it looks like the film will live up to its title; just about anything and everything in this world can and will kill you in the most hilarious way possible.

Universal has released eight posters for Seth MacFarlane‘s upcoming western-comedy, A Million Ways to Die in the West.  The story revolves around a cowardly farmer (MacFarlane) who backs out of a gunfight and subsequently loses his girlfriend.  When he later meets the wife of a notorious outlaw who teaches him how to shoot, he gets an opportunity to win his pride back, but must choose between reclaiming an old love or kindling a new one.  The plot thickens when the outlaw returns to claim his woman.  We have yet to see a trailer for the film, but these posters give us a slight indication of each character’s personality, and each seems to be a play on a western archetype.  Hopefully, we’ll get a trailer soon so we’ll have a better idea of what MacFarlane is going for.

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 Review

by     Posted 203 days ago

cloudy-meatballs-2-anna-faris-bill-hader-slice

I adore Cloudy with a Chance of MeatballsPhil Lord and Christopher Miller’s adaptation of the classic children’s book is one of the most unexpected and successful book adaptations of the past several years.  Most movies based on children books are belabored, tiresome affairs, and Cloudy turned the simple idea of food falling from the sky into a weird, adorable, and hilarious animated comedy.  It set an incredibly high bar for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, but new directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn have come close to giving us a movie as wonderful as the original.  Everything that made the first Cloudy a success is still in place, even though there’s more reliance on some cheap gags.  The sequel has cemented the identity of the series even though the story leaves some residual guiltiness about being a carnivore.

Sony Pictures Animation has released five clips from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.  In the follow-up, Swallow Falls is under attack by mutant foods known as “foodimals”, so Flint (Bill Hader), Sam (Anna Faris), Brent (Andy Samberg), Manny (Benjamin Bratt), Earl (Terry Crews), and Steve (Neil Patrick Harris) must contain the creatures before they overrun the planet.  I’m going radio silent on the movie since I love the first one, and I like everything I’ve seen from the trailers, so I don’t need more to sell me on this flick.  However, if you still need some convincing, these clips are for your viewing please.  Also, if you live in Atlanta, you still have a time to enter for a chance to win passes to an early screening.

Opening in theaters this week is Raja Gosnell’s Smurfs 2.  The film picks up three years after the first installment when Gargamel (Hank Azaria), now a successful Paris-based stage magician, devises a plan to become the most powerful wizard on earth by kidnapping Smurfette (Katy Perry) and stealing her Smurf-essence.  When the little blue guys team up to rescue Smurfette they turn to old friends Patrick (Neil Patrick Harris) and Grace (Jayma Mays) for help, and set off to Paris for an adventure that has a surprisingly genuine message about identity and the meaning of family.  Smurfs 2 also stars Brendan Gleeson, Christina Ricci, Jonathan Winters, Anton Yelchin, George Lopez, and John Oliver.

At the recent Las Vegas press day I sat down for a video interview with Harris and Mays.  They talked about shooting in Paris, the film’s message, working with Brendan Gleeson, the fun they have on set, and playing parents.  Additionally, Harris commented on the final season of How I Met Your Mother.  Hit the jump to watch.

rosamund-pike-gone-girl

After a year and a half of waiting to hear what David Fincher’s next project after The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo might be, the filmmaker is moving very quickly on his adaptation of the bestselling Gillian Flynn novel Gone Girl.  Fincher committed to the film as his next project just a couple of weeks ago with Ben Affleck set as the male lead, and the search began to fill the pic’s integral female lead role.  While names like Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, and Emily Blunt were rumored, all three were subsequently ruled out due to scheduling and various other reasons.

Now Fincher has settled on which actress will take on the role, and it’s the lovely Rosamund Pike.  Hit the jump for more, including the possibility of Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry (?) joining the cast.

cloudy-with-a-chance-of-meatballs-2-poster-slice

Following on the heels of yesterday’s new domestic trailer for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, an international trailer has now been released online.  The plot revolves around Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader) and Sam Sparks (Anna Faris) returning to Swallow Falls to clean up the mess created by the FLDSMDFR, only to find that food is now taking on the form of mutant beasts.  The film is one of my most-anticipated movies of the next three months, and while this trailer does retread a good portion of what we saw in the first trailer with regards to the food puns, we’re also getting more of Steve (Neil Patrick Harris).  I’m curious to see if the talking monkey will have a larger role in the sequel, or if he’s just being played up in the marketing due to his popularity and ability to get quick laughs.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also features the voices of Andy Samberg, Will Forte, and Terry CrewsCloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 opens in 3D on September 27th.
