Phantom Menace review guy takes on Indy and the Crystal Skull

One of my favorite video discoveries of the past few years has been Red Letter Media's lengthy review series of the entire new Star Wars trilogy. His serial killer gimmick is so-so, and his voice is strange at first, but in his hour and a half long reviews, he has some of the best insights I've ever heard into why exactly the new trilogy was so poor, and how George Lucas has lost his...

Mission Impossible's success inspires a sequel and Top Gun 2 as well

MISSION IMPOSSIBLE is turning out to be one of the best success stories of the winter, and executives are pleased as punch with the film's performance. Tom Cruise was thought to be an iffy commodity, as his last few offerings like KNIGHT AND DAY and VALKYRIE have failed to impress, and some thought his star may have faded since his blockbuster days. But MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: GHOST...

Cool Videos: The Year in Film 2011

Wow. That's all I've got to say about this year's film compilation video from pro editor and film fan Kees van Dijkhuizen. He's come out with one every year for a while now, but this one actually sent chills up my spine. I can't pinpoint why, but it's a very emotional journey through the year of film, and is masterfully edited beyond any other such montage you'll see this year....

First teaser for HBO's Game Change with Harris/Moore as McCain/Palin

It may be a TV channel, but HBO movies are not of the Lifetime variety. They've made incredible films in recent years, most notably RECOUNT with Kevin Spacey and YOU DON'T KNOW JACK with Al Pacino. Their next is GAME CHANGE which focuses on the McCain campaign decision to pick Sarah Palin as his running mate in the 2008 presidential election. Ed Harris and Julianne Moore fill the top...

Prometheus trailer crash lands early!

UPDATE: HD online at Apple . Another day, another big trailer. After THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and THE HOBBIT earlier this week, the first spot for PROMETHEUS has leaked out early, and we have a non-bootlegged version for you to enjoy below. It's not on iTunes yet as was promised, but it's a good copy, though we'll have a link to an HD variant once its online. Even though Ridley...

New look at The Hunger Games' Effie in a...nail polish ad?

Goddamnit Hunger Games, I've just finished reading your first two books and let me please express my distaste if you're going to overly market this film as a Twilight successor to tween girls. I understand the financial appeal, but you actually have a really solid story to work with here, so having your characters appear in nail polish ads? Please stop. What you see below is a look...

Michael Fassbender looks intrigued in new Prometheus photo

I guess it's the cool thing to do to release a new picture before your big trailer debut. THE HOBBIT did so yesterday, and now PROMETHEUS is following suit ahead of its big premiere this Thursday. The latest photo released is the one above which shows Michael Fassbender in a high tech space suit investigating something with a flashlight in hand. We've gotten very few official...

Vin Diesel says deep character relationships are why we're getting Fast Seven

We've been hearing about possible sixth and seventh FAST AND FURIOUS films for a while now. Another one was assumed after how well FAST FIVE did, but two more lined up already? It seemed a bit much. But now Vin Diesel is speaking about what that's the case, and the reason a seventh film is necessary for the series: “With the success of this last one, and the inclusion of so...

New CGI Yoda front and center in Phantom Menace 3D poster

One of the big "Lucas meddling" changes in the new Star Wars trilogy 3D re-release is that the puppet Yoda from the first film is being completely replaced by the all CGI version we saw lightsaber fighting in the other two movies. Now, he's taking center stage in this brand new poster for the film which you can see below. Yes, it's Russian. They like Star Wars over there too. I don't...

One more new Hobbit image ahead of tonight's trailer

In case you missed the announcement yesterday, THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY is set to premiere its first trailer tonight at 7PM PST. While we're all eagerly looking forward to that, the studio has provided a new image from the film via Empire. Official images have been hard to come by, and this one features Bilbo (Martin Freeman) front and center. Even though I never actually...

Christopher Nolan won't change Bane's voice

As impressed as we all have been with the DARK KNIGHT RISES trailer and prologue, there's been one point of contention that won't go away. There seems to be a pretty steep divide as to who can understand Bane's voice, muffled behind his mask, and who can't. The fact that such a divide even exists is a problem for the film, and reportedly has studio executives worried over at Warner...

Another Prometheus teaser ahead of first trailer

I guess that they're doing some sort of countdown for the PROMETHEUS trailer set to debut Thursday on iTunes. Yesterday we saw the "three days left" video , and now there's a "two days left" one that you can see below. It's only thirty seconds long, but features more footage from the film than we've seen, which so far, other than yesterday, has been zero. There are plenty blink and...
