Young-adult entertainment goes through phases and we're currently waist deep in the "sci-fi dystopian" phase, where 'The Hunger Games' is the obvious high watermark. Although 'Divergent' will make a run at the throne in a few weeks, 'The Maze Runner' is taking aim at Katniss and company later this year, and the new poster looks strategically designed to tap into your love of that franchise.
If the goal for 'Need For Speed' was to replicate the success of the 'Fast and Furious' films, then the film's opening weekend is not promising. Opening in third place, the video game adaptation was overtaken by two of last week's releases, making this potential franchise D.O.A.
We were sold on 'Captain America 2' before the new featurette arrived and got us pumped to see Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson, aka The Falcon, in action. Despite being used in the trailers and getting a character poster or two, we had yet to fully understand what purpose he would serve in the film ... until now.
On paper, 'Pan' sounds like the kind of movie you'd have to drag us to kicking and screaming, but since the production keeps on adding talented people like Rooney Mara to the cast, it's getting more and more difficult to ignore.
'Macbeth' is one of William Shakespeare's greatest plays and one of the most inherently cinematic stories ever written. That's why it's been made into a movie multiple times before. That's why a version starring Michael Fassbender is currently in the works. But this is a first: Sean Bean is attached to lead an adaptation of the infamous "Scottish play" for actor-turned-director Vincent Regan ... but only if the project reaches its Kickstarter goal.
The West Memphis Three made national headlines and found itself the subject of two documentaries -- 'Paradise Lost' and 'West of Memphis' -- but now the tragically true-to-life story has been brought to life with the debut of the new 'Devil's Knot' trailer.
'Frank' is a movie that has the audacity to cast a known face like Michael Fassbender in the lead role and then hide him in a giant, silly-looking fake head for the entire running time. In other words, it's our kind of weird. The film was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival -- where we gave it a sparkling review -- and with the first 'Frank' trailer, you can see why. This movie looks crazy and, more importantly, crazy good.
Now that CG-animated films are more common, stop-motion has become more magical than it ever has before. Laika is a studio that built its name on doing this kind of work better than anyone else, creating modern gems like 'Coraline' and 'ParaNorman.' Can their latest effort, 'The Boxtrolls,' live up to their legacy? If the new teaser trailer is any indication, all signs point to yes.
We have a good feeling about 'Oculus.' As the latest release from Blumhouse Productions (the folks behind 'Paranormal Activity' and 'Sinister'), the horror film follows a young woman who attempts to clear her brother's name after he is accused of a crime that was actually committed by a creepy supernatural entity living in a mirror. The full 'Oculus' trailer has arrived, and it looks like it'll have its fair share of chills and scares.
We're not entirely sure why Steven Spielberg, arguably the most famous and beloved filmmaker of all time, is currently looking into remaking 'West Side Story' as his next project, but who are we to argue with The Beard?
