After months of waiting, crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper and Eva Mendes FINALLY has a trailer.
Joining forces with Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance once again, Gosling channels a mysterious motorcycle stunt driver who robs banks to support his sometimes lover (Mendes) and the baby boy he fathered. But as he becomes the target of a rookie cop (Cooper), the confrontation determines his fate.
If anyone remembers watching Drive, Gosling’s character will seem very familiar. However, the story here is much deeper and more emotional. I had the chance to catch this flick during its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this past September. Although it was a bit long, I was extremely impressed by what I saw and LOVED the performances. Gosling was amazing as usual, but Bradley Cooper was the actor who impressed me the most.
The Place Beyond the Pines will be released on March 29, 2013. Packed with an all star cast, the film also stars Ray Liotta, Dane DeHaan and Rose Byrne.
The characters in The Hobbit and Lord of The Rings aren’t particularly attractive. But what if your life depended on being involved with one of them?
Playing a funny game with stars Martin Freeman, Andy Serkis and Sir Ian McKellen, MTV’s Josh Horowitz gave the actors a hard time in choosing whether they would F*ck/marry/kill characters like Gollum, the Eye of Sauron, Smaug or Bilbo Baggins.
There obviously isn’t much to choose from (because really, who would want to kiss an Orc?), but I agree with McKellan for marrying the dragon Smaug.
Although villainous, Smaug is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch and that man is BEAUTIFUL.

The trailer for Pacific Rim is here and all I can think about is how I can’t wait to see Sons of Anarchy’s Jax Teller kick some monster ass. Actor Charlie Hunnam plays Raleigh Antrobus, one of the soldiers deployed to fight an alien menace that threatens Earth.
The alien creatures are far superior in power and size than the humans, but we create a giant, motion-controlled machine to fight back and protect the world. The film was directed by Guillermo del Toro and also stars Hunnam’s costar from Sons, Ron Perlman.
It comes out on July 12, will you see it?

The new official trailer for Man of Steel showcases a darker, gloomier version of your kind-hearted hero Superman, as he grapples with the possibility that the world might reject his unique alien powers. Henry Cavill (that hottie from The Tudors) stars as Clark Kent while Amy Adams is Louis Lane.
The trailer features flashbacks from Clark’s youth, including when his school bus crashed into water. He saves the nearly drowning students, however, his father disapproves of his actions and encourages him to hide his secret, even at the risk of others. Later, a fully cloaked and grown up Clark remembers haunting advice from his father: ”My father believed that if the world found out who I really was, they would reject me. He was convinced that the world wasn’t ready.”
Today Superman is seen as morally sound and idealistic with a strong sense of justice, however, he was actually rougher and more aggressive in the original comics by Siegel and Shuster.
I’m crossing my fingers the film will redeem the wreck that was 2006′s Superman Returns. Another thing working in its favour is that The Dark Knight’s Christopher Nolan is a producer.
The movie will be on screens starting June 14. Will you see it?

Trekkies can rejoice today as they finally got a glimpse of the long-awaited movie Star Trek Into Darkness, the sequel to JJ Abram’s 2009 film. Just like The Dark Knight Rises and Iron Man 3, the film seems to focus on terrorism, specifically the so-called “one-man weapon of mass destruction.”
The villain is played by Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch. “You think your world is safe,” he says in the teaser. “It is an illusion . . . A comforting lie, told to protect you . . . Enjoy these final moments of peace . . . For I have returned . . .to have – MY VENGEANCE!”
The trailer is full of epic explosions and fighting, as Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to capture the ruthless but complicated villain. The film comes out on May 17. Will you see it?

Part two of the Twilight Saga, New Moon features werewolves, shirtless dudes, terrible acting and even more AWKWARD stares. If you’re planning to see the new Breaking Dawn but don’t know what to expect, this Honest Trailer by screenjunkies should prepare you.

“Joe Goes” comedian took on Twilight fans camped outside Nokia Theatre for the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 and did all sorts of blasphemous stuff, like ripping the novel and calling the movie horrible.
“Spoiler alert, it sucks,” he told one fan about the film. While some of the fans reacted with gaping mouths and sharp intakes of breath, one girl gave him a noogie. But that reaction is only expected when a Twilight hater starts talking about Dune and Lord of the Rings.
The Matt Friedman-directed clip might make you worry for the next generation. While I love Twilight as much as the next person, these fans take it to the next level! Still, we all have to fangirl for something, right? The movie will be in theatres on Nov. 16.

The trailer for Lindsay Lohan’s new movie The Canyons almost seems like a parody, in both good and bad ways. It pokes fun at the movie’s writer Bret Easton Ellis, calling him a “Twitter-obsessed author” and brags about the “never-nominated director.” The black and white teaser also plays off the real lives of Lohan and co-star James Deen, who previously worked in porn, referring to them as sensuous and potent.
Poking fun at the movie is a smart idea to move past all the real life personal drama weighing the movie down. However, they revealed so little about the plot that it’s hard to tell what it’s actually about. The noir film from director Paul Scrader chronicles a sexy woman (Lohan) torn between two lovers. It explores the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition among young people circa 2012.

Disney’s latest 3D flick may include some of your favourite video game characters like Bowser, Pac-Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. However, none of this would have been possible without the guidance of animation director Rich Moore.
But even if you’ve never heard of Moore before, chances are you’re familiar with some of his work. Having directed episodes of The Simpsons and Futurama, he is actually an accomplished director with two Primetime Emmy Awards under his belt.
Speaking about his new film Wreck-it Ralph during a phone call, Moore let us in on what it was like to create a movie about video games.
Wreck-It Ralph focuses on the bad guy:
An underdog story, the film surrounds Wreck-It-Ralph, a video game villain with dreams of becoming a hero. Tired of being overshadowed by good guy Fix-It-Felix, Ralph goes on a quest that ultimately brings havoc to the whole arcade he lives in.
Believe or not, “hero” Fix-It-Felix was originally supposed to be the star of the film. But when Moore and screenwriter Phil Johnston weren’t really getting traction with the project, they scrapped the idea and decided to focus the movie on Wreck-It Ralph instead.
“In a feature, the main character has an arc, a journey. They learn something or something changes in that character,” Moore says. “It was tough to build a nice comedic story with a lot of heart around (Fix-it-Felix).”
The flick features appearances by 190 characters and the voice talents of some of Hollywood’s biggest names:
Featuring cameos by Sonic the Hedgehog’s Doctor Eggman, Street Fighter’s Chun-Li and even Paddles 1 and 2 from Pong, the film also includes original characters voiced by John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk.
While working with everyone has been a treat for Moore, he was particularly pleased to have Reilly on board as the title character of Wreck-It Ralph.
Reilly, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work in Chicago, was so invested with his role that he even asked Moore to meet with the animators who created his character.
“(Reilly) was so hands on and so instrumental in fleshing out who Ralph is and what he’s like. Every character he plays feels like a real human being. You really care about his characters and you want them to achieve what it is that they want and desire.” Read more…
Since Hollywood is waaay out of ideas these days, studio exec are scratching their heads trying to discover the new big thing and I think they’ve finally nabbed it. Why not remake every movie out there with cats? People love cats. People love movies. So why not cats and movies?
This re-cut trailer of Seven PsychoCATS replaces actors Colin Farrell and Woody Harrelson with feline alternates. The movie is about a struggling screenwriter who becomes entangled in the Los Angeles criminal underworld after his friends kidnaps a gangster’s Shih Tzu.
Sounds like a winner to me.

Yesterday, we saw how Rian Johnson’s Looper would be like if it were remade into a movie full of dirty jokes, farts and cheap humour. But what if Looper was secretly just a remake of a 90s film?
Here in the Disney version, we see scenes of a little Joseph Gordon-Levitt and a much younger, hairier Bruce Willis in what seems like…a heartwarming, family classic.
I was pretty mind-blown after watching Rian Johnson’s Looper last night. From its crazy fight scenes to the story’s wicked concept, I just couldn’t stop thinking about the film after watching it.
But what if Looper was remade into Pooper? Filled with disgusting fart sounds and cheap humour, I couldn’t help cracking up at this parody trailer. As stupid as this looks, the editing was just TOO GOOD.
WARNING: Wear headphones, because this video is not safe for work…nor is it appropriate during lunch time.
The Avengers gag reel proves just how much fun the crew had on set, which isn’t hard to believe considering Robert Downey Jr. was there (he’s a rambunctious sorta fella). The DVD and Blu-ray editions don’t come out until Sept. 25, but this four-minute reel should tide you over until then.
Here are the three best scenes:
1. Superheroes are always coordinated — the direct antithesis the clumsy — especially Thor. However, in a scene with Chris Evans (Captain America) actor Chris Hemsworth (Thor) can’t catch his hammer and instead gracelessly bounces it from arm to arm like it’s a hacky sack. He gets points for never giving up though.
2. Evans demonstrates the difficulty of putting on some of the intricate and complicated gear during one scene. In the movie he puts on a parachute quite easily but in the gag reel we realize how difficult it actually was to put on. “Guess it doesn’t go up as smoothly as I was hoping,” he jokes.
3. After Clark Gregg (Agent Coulson) perfects his character’s death — which is notably hilarious — Cobie Smulders has a severe meltdown that we WISH made it in the movie, because you know, it’s so believable and all.
I’m pretty sure this was my exact reaction to the following movies: Bambi, Dumbo, My Dog Skip, Marley and Me, War Horse (the latter was just last year and I soaked through 17 tissues — I counted). Usually my kryptonite is ANY MOVIE with animals but these kids are a little more sensitive to their own mortality, as expressed through “feel good movie” The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
I feel slightly sadistic laughing at the two brothers, whose parents recorded them on the ride home from the theatre. It’s probably so funny because we’ve all been there.
What movie always gets you?
The 1984 movie Red Dawn had an all-star cast that included Charlie Sheen, Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell (Ponyboy!!) and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing). I wasn’t around back then but I’m guessing it was pretty much the teen movie to go to.
I don’t always understand the necessity of remakes — especially if the plot isn’t changed all that much — but I just might go see the new Red Dawn just because they fast-forwarded the story to the present day. Instead of combating Soviet forces, a group of courageous teenagers are defending their town from an invasion of North Korean soldiers.
Granted, the likelihood of disorderly teenagers (who have probably only ever shot a gun in an iPhone game) saving a small town is slightly unbelievable. Still, I’m pretty sure if actor Chris Hemsworth is present North Korea would be like: “Damn, it’s Thor. Back out boys!”
The movie stars Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, who both have connections to The Hunger Games. The action flick hits theaters Nov. 21, 2012. Will you see it? Check out the original and new movie trailers below. I want to like the new version but I have to say, the original trailer is pretty enticing.

While I enjoyed the movie Taken, I have a bad viewing history with it. It was released just before my friends and I went on a month long backpacking trip across Europe and my parents became convinced Paris was full of criminals trafficking third year university students.
While my parents are pretty cool, they don’t have Mission Impossible skills like Liam Neeson, which added another level of concern. Old Liam NEVER loses his cool in the movie even when the odds are stacked against him. If it was any other parent in the universe they might act differently. This dude, Captain Hippo wanted to investigate what would happen if a real dad was put in that situation. They couldn’t find any, so they used their own. The result is a meatball loving dude who has to decide between watching the next episode of Home Improvement and rescuing his son from the bad guys.
Well, he gives it his best shot.

In celebration of Bob Byington’s deadpan comedy Somebody Up There Likes Me getting picked up by Tribeca for a March 2013 video-on-demand and theatrical run, some of the stars decided to smoke up in bed and relax. The film is a surreal comedy about the cycle of life.
Offerman, who is a producer and star of the movie, is joined by wife Megan Mullally and Community actress Alison Brie. The three of them also star in the upcoming indie comedy Toy’s House.
While there are so many things that are confusing about this video (Why do they each need their own bong? Why do they bleep out the first swear word from Brie but no the second?), studios should take note — this is how you promote a movie.

When I first heard that Ashton Kutcher was going to play Apple founder Steve Jobs in a movie, I really could not register it in my brain. But with new photos spreading around of Kutcher on set of the biopic, his likeness to the inventor is so accurate it’s actually kind of creepy.
Spotted filming at Loyola Marymount University in LA, the actor sported a pair of round-framed spectacles, jeans and Steve’s trademark running shoes.
While I’m not sure if Ashton will grow older to look just like Steve Jobs, the resemblance here is definitely uncanny! (SOURCE)
Don’t trust your dad with your iPad ladies and gents. If this video is any indication, a movie like this might happen when your father decides he’s having way too much fun.
