New TV spot and poster for Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

A new poster for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES has made its way online, as well as a new television spot for the upcoming film.

The TV spot does contain some awesome new footage, including a couple of shots of a few of those damn...

First Look: Toby Kebbell behind the scenes on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t excited for DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. I really enjoyed the first film more than I thought I would. Matt Reeves on as helmer with a cast that includes Andy Serkis, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Toby Kebbell, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Enrique Murciano, Kirk Acevedo and Judy Greer is pretty inciting. One actor I’m excited to see here Is...

Gary Oldman says Dawn of the Planet of the Apes tells a very human story

Gary Oldman is not shy from taking on big franchises these days. The actor can do everything from hero to villain in movies big or small, human or monster. But, in his two big films of 2014, Oldman is playing very human characters. This Friday he plays a scientist in the remake of ROBOCOP, but this summer he will be the leader of the human resistance in Matt Reeves ' sequel, DAWN OF...

Review: Young Ones (Sundance 2014)

PLOT: In a future where water is the rarest and most valuable commodity, a settler- Ernest Holm ( Michael Shannon )- fights to keep his family and land safe from intruders. REVIEW: Jake Paltrow’s YOUNG ONES is easily one of the most ambitious films to be unveiled at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. It takes a page not only from post-apocalyptic actioners like MAD MAX,...

Review: Romeo and Juliet

PLOT: Romeo and Juliet, two teenagers at opposite sides of forever dueling families, fall in love at first sight. It doesn't end well. REVIEW: Carlo Carlei 's ROMEO & JULIET is a lovely looking film that lacks the fiery passion inherent in William Shakespeare 's play, and has completely miscast the two lead roles. It's also altered the lines of the play in order to appeal to...

Michael Fassbender joins the western Slow West with Ben Mendelsohn and Kodi Smit-McPhee

Michael Fassbender had to leave JANE GOT A GUN due to a schedule conflict, but the actor apparently still has a Western itch that needs to be scratched, and has joined the film SLOW WEST. It also stars Ben Mendelsohn (THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES) and Kodi Smit-McPhee (THE ROAD, LET ME IN) and is being directed by John Maclean, a former member of The Beta...

So, for those of you with wives and girlfriends, I've found the next movie you'll be dragged to, kicking and screaming. It's a little movie called ROMEO AND JULIET starring Hailee Steinfeld , Douglas Booth, Damian Lewis , Paul Giamatti , Stellan Skarsgard , Ed Westwick , Natascha McElhone , and Kodi Smit-McPhee . The latest adaptation of William Shakespeare 's...

Wicked and trippy trailer for The Congress starring Robin Wright and Harvey Keitel

The first international trailer for THE CONGRESS, starring Robin Wright , Harvey Keitel , Danny Huston , Paul Giamatti , and Kodi Smit-McPhee has arrived and it's an odd, trippy, and wicked looking affair. Written and directed by Ari Folman , who did the brilliant documentary WALTZ WITH BASHIR, which was equally trippy in that it used animation to recount a tale of war. Now,...

The trailer for the new Romeo and Juliet features Haillee Steinfeld, Paul Giamatti, Damian Lewis, and Stellan Skarsgard

ROMEO AND JULIET is one of the movies that we will continue to see remakes of for the duration of film as an medium. The last two theatrical versions were the contemporary Baz Luhrman version and the animated GNOMEO AND JULIET. This new take returns the tale to 16th century Italy complete with lush costumes and the full iambic pentameter intact. Julian Fellowes , the writer of...

ParaNorman coming to Blu-ray and DVD on November 27th!

At the end of the day, despite how much I loved THE DARK KNIGHT RISES , my highlight of the summer movie season was easily PARANORMAN.  I'll always hold a deep respect for and fascination with stop-motion, and it didn't hurt that the film was replete with subtle/classy horror references and humor and exciting sequences and beautiful design all while espousing an important message...

Check out the creepy cool final trailer for Paranorman

The final web-only trailer for Laika Entertainment's PARANORMAN has arrived and steers the marketing in a more suspenseful and creepy direction.  The past few trailers have been good, but mostly what you'd expect from a stop-motion film with supernatural tendencies.  This, however, is more of a live-action thriller type trailer and it works exceptionally.  Check it out:...
