Summer movie season is about to begin, and it’s going to kick-off in a big way with Iron Man 3. Iron Man 2 is admittedly the weakest of the Phase One bunch, but all my faith has been restored with writer-director Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) at the helm. The trailers have conveyed a very different tone for our hero, and the action looks to be the best in the series thus far. Iron Man 3 definitely looks like it can deliver the goods when it comes to starting Summer Movie Season 2013 on a strong note.
I’m please to announce that we’ll be giving away two pairs of passes to the 3D Atlanta screening of Iron Man 3. Hit the jump to find out how you can see the film early and for free. The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, and Ben Kingsley. Marvel’s Iron Man 3 opens in theaters in 3D on May 3rd.
I cannot wait to see Michael Bay‘s Pain & Gain. The red-band trailer is hilarious, and without the benefit of giant robots, it looks like Bay has had to put more focus on story and character. That’s not to say that they’ll be particularly deep, but at least they won’t be wallpaper for an onslaught of CG. This movie is going to rely on the excellent cast just as much as it’s going to rely on the set pieces.
I’m pleased to announce that we’ll be giving away 15 passes to the Atlanta screening of Pain and Gain. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. The movie stars Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, Anthony Mackie, Rob Corddry, Rebel Wilson, Ed Harris, and Tony Shalhoub. Pain & Gain opens April 26th.
If you love blood-drenched horror, you’re probably going to love the remake of Evil Dead. When I saw it at SXSW, the crowd went absolutely nuts for it, and it provided a level of violence rarely seen in wide-release movies. For those who like their movies gruesome as hell, you need to come out to see this.
I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 20 passes to the Atlanta screening of Evil Dead. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. Evil Dead opens April 5th.
I’m a fan of director Chan-wook Park, and I really enjoyed his English-language debut, Stoker, when I caught it at Sundance in January. For those who are unfamiliar with the film, it centers on a young girl (Mia Wasikowska) who encounters her mysterious uncle (Matthew Goode) while mourning the death of her father (Dermot Mulroney). Stoker has the same style and confidence Park showed with his excellent films Oldboy and Lady Vengeance, and while it was divisive at Sundance, it’s still worth checking out.
I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 10 passes to the Atlanta screening of Stoker. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. Stoker will open exclusively at the Tara on March 15th.
I can’t say no to a Die Hard film, especially when they’ve restored the franchise to its rightful R-rating. Die Hard movies require wise-cracks, swearing, and John McClane (Bruce Willis) getting the ever-loving shit kicked out of him. Hopefully, McClane’s mission to Moscow, A Good Day to Hard, will deliver in a big way.
I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 25 passes to the Atlanta screening of A Good Day to Hard. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. The film also stars Jai Courtney, Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Anne Vyalitsyna, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. A Good Day to Die Hard opens Thursday, February 14th.
I’m not embarrassed to say I’m intrigued by Beautiful Creatures. I know I’m not the target audience, but that doesn’t mean I’m excluded from enjoying the film. For those unfamiliar with the movie, it’s supernatural love story centering on Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert) a “caster” (a.k.a. a witch), her relationship with Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), and her dread at being chosen for good or evil.
I’m pleased to announce that we’re giving away 20 passes to the Atlanta screening of Beautiful Creatures. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. The film also stars Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, and Emma Thompson. Beautiful Creatures opens February 14th.
One of my most-anticipated films of January – March is Andrés Muschietti‘s horror film, Mama. Produced by Guillermo Del Toro, the film stars Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a couple who take in two abandoned sisters discovered five years after the mysterious death of their parents. The couple gets more than they bargained for when a supernatural presence follows the girls into their new home. The trailer makes the film look damn creepy, and I will always pay attention to a film that gets Del Toro’s stamp of approval.
I’m happy to announce that we’re giving away 10 pairs of passes (20 tickets) to our readers in Atlanta, New York City, and Los Angeles. Hit the jump to find out how you can check out the film early and for free. Mama opens January 18th.
With director Ruben Fleischer’s (Zombieland) 30 Minutes or Less opening August 12, Sony is using this week’s Comic-Con to help promote the very funny film. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Aziz Ansari, Nick Swardson, Dilshad Vadsaria and Michael Pena, the film centers on a pizza delivery guy (Eisenberg) who is kidnapped by two men (McBride and Swardson) and forced to rob a bank at the risk of being blown up.
Anyway, Sony is holding a free screening this Friday night at 8pm and we’ve got tickets to give away to some of our readers. Since I know no one wants to see a movie by themselves, every person getting tickets will get a +1. In addition, Ansari, Swardson, Pena and Fleischer will intro the film and then participate in a Q&A following the screening! Hit the jump for details on how to enter, and you can also watch video messages from Eisenberg and Ansari, as well as McBride and Swardson.
I’ve raved about Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block, Scott loved it, Steve’s loved it, and plenty of other online writers have cheered it on as well. And if you don’t like our opinions, the film has picked up accolades at the SXSW and Los Angeles Film Festivals. I’m not sure how much convincing you need to see this film, but for Comic-Con attendees who can’t wait to see this flick, I’ve got some great news. Collider will be giving out 5 pairs of tickets to a special Comic-Con screening of the flick. Additionally, you can click here to register for free passes on a first-come, first serve basis, but our winners will be guaranteed seats. If you do get passes through RSVPing and not directly through us, be sure to show up early as your pass does not guarantee you a seat.
Furthermore, folks at the Comic-Con screening will be treated to a Q&A with Cornish, executive producer Edgar Wright, and star John Boyega. Hit the jump for more details on the screening, the Comic-Con panel for the film, and to find out other sites that are giving away tickets. Attack the Block hits theaters in the US on July 29th.
If you’ve been hearing the ridiculous buzz and unending love for Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block, then you’re probably itching to finally see the thing. Well, now’s your chance. The Edgar Wright-produced flick is being screened at the New Beverly in Los Angeles on July 4th, and we’ve got a limited amount of tickets to give out.
For those in the dark, the film centers on a street gang of kids who take on a hostile alien invasion. That plot description in and of itself should be enough to pique your interest. Hit the jump for more information on the screening.
At this year’s SXSW, one film walked away with all the buzz: Joe Cornish’s Attack the Block. The film (which was produced by Cornish’s writing-buddy, Edgar Wright) had been called the “best film of SXSW 2011″ since its very first screening. It went on to win the Audience Award.
Unfortunately, if you weren’t at SXSW, all you’ve been able to do is read about the movie (or watch the international trailer). However, if you live in or around Los Angeles, I’ve got awesome news. I’ve got 15 pairs of tickets to give away to a free screening this Thursday night! Since the film doesn’t yet have domestic distribution, this is going to be your only way to see it for quite awhile. So if you’d like a chance to get tickets, hit the jump for more info:
UPDATE: An email has been sent to the 15 people that won tickets. However, if you didn’t get an email…a stand by line will open at 5:30pm, so feel free to try and get in that way. The theater is the Landmark Theatre at the Westside Pavilion. Anyone who has tickets but fails to check in by 7:15 loses the rights to their seat…some will flake. If you are near the front of the line, I think you have a good chance of getting in…
