James Franco brings back his Spring Breakers’ character, Alien, back for this “no talking” commercial.
Filmed at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin during his visit to SXSW, Franco wants you to turn off your screens and not to ruin it because, “look at this shit!” Also making a brief appearance is Harry Osbourne, Franco’s character in Sam Raimi’s Spiderman trilogy.

If there’s anything we love more than a great movie it’s the obligatory sequel that follows. And in the coming months there will be loads of them! Here are 11 sequels that we’re excited to see this year.
Anchorman: The Legend Continues
Unprofessional and inappropriate — these are just a couple words that can be used to describe Ron Burgundy and his team at the Channel 4 nightly news. I think it’s fair to say we’ve been looking forward to an Anchorman sequel since it was released in 2004. Anchorman: The Legend Continues will bring back Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd, Christina Applegate and just announced to join the cast…Drum roll… is the hilarious Kristin Wiig. We have to wait until Dec. 20 for this one so ’til then, re-watch Ron personally announcing the sequels’ release on Conan (above).
Thor: The Dark World
Let’s be honest, when it comes to Thor you don’t have to be a Marvel Comics fan, am I right ladies? Australian hottie, Chris Hemsworth made his action hero debut when he donned his Thor costume and hammer in the first instalment, which became a huge blockbuster and career starter for him. In The Dark World, Thor sets out to battle a dark race of elves being led by Malekith, who is threatening to plunge the universe into darkness following what happened in The Avengers. The Dark World is set for a Nov. 8 release, but above is a little teaser from Marvel.

Zombies aren’t the heartless creatures you think they are. Because in the case of upcoming film Warm Bodies, Nicholas Hoult plays one falling in love.
Based on Isaac Marion’s book of the same name, Warm Bodies follows R (Hoult), a zombie who eats human brains to feed on their memories. But after feeding on his latest prey, he finds himself falling in love with the victim’s girlfriend (Teresa Palmer).
It’s strange to see a zombie movie getting a romantic twist when most films about the walking dead are gory and terrifying. But as Warm Bodies attempts to add some depth to who zombies really are, the film might actually prove that they have desires and fears like any human as well.
While this movie is slated to release on Feb. 1, 2013, it’s already being compared to the Twilight series. But after watching the trailer, I personally think this film is a lot more different than it sounds.

A Movie You Can Control: Cinema’s Effect on Video Games
Ever been watching a movie and wished you could tell the actors that what they’re doing is stupid? That you have a much better plan that would totally work, and if they would only do that instead, maybe the zombies wouldn’t eat them, or the comrade that was clearly going to inevitably betray them wouldn’t get the chance? Well I have. But with the advent of video games in recent years that seemingly make a conscious effort to mimic the pacing and immersive experience of a film, it’s almost like we have the ability to watch a movie that we’re also able to play through and control. For a classic narcissist such as myself, this is clearly the greatest thing to happen to video games since the B-button. Read more…
