Limo Ride Doc Trailer

"A true tale told by those who lived it." Something a little raw to raunch up your day. A trailer has debuted for a wacky documentary called Limo Ride, about an epic "wildest night ever" limo ride about ten friends having the time of their lives. If you like white trash cinema, this is the doc for you. It's essentially about these guys recounting the tale of this crazy night of drinking and sex and all kinds of bad shit, which hearing about now is so much fun. They end up at some beach, endless bars all over, and other nasty places. This sales trailer is full of nudity and language aplenty, so don't watch this one at work, or with any one around. ›››

The Zero Theorem

"Everything adds up to nothing." It feels like we've been seeing trailers for Terry Gilliam's latest sci-fi venture The Zero Theorem for years, but that's just because the film has been hitting tons of international territories before arriving in the United States. The film is poised to hit VOD next month with a theatrical release following in September, and so we have one more domestic trailer showing off this wild world that Gilliam has created. Christoph Waltz plays a computer genius tasked with proving that our existence has no meaning. It's exactly the kind of original and visual stimulating film you'd expect from Gilliam. Watch! ›››

Christopher Nolan Goes Bold on the Future of Cinema in the WSJ

Christopher Nolan

Whoa. Time to geek out. So, Christopher Nolan just wrote a piece for the Wall Street Journal, about the future of cinema. And it's kind of brilliant, but of course we all expected that. The title online explains: "Christopher Nolan: Films of the Future Will Still Draw People to Theaters", with the subtitle "When Movies Can Look or Sound Like Anything, Says the 'Dark Knight' Director, Extraordinary Work Will Emerge". Now, Nolan is in the midst of finishing work on Interstellar, his sci-fi epic which will arrive in theaters this November. He makes rather some bold comments about the state of the industry. "We moan about intrusive moviegoers, but most of us feel a pang of disappointment when we find ourselves in an empty theater." Yep. ›››

Christian Bale is Golden on 'Exodus: Gods & Kings' Teaser Posters

FirstShowing.net - Tue, 07/08/2014 - 11:56
 Gods & Kings

Later tonight, the first trailer for Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus: Gods & Kings will arrive. We've just gotten a first look at the film starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton as Moses and Ramses II respectively, and now the two stars are featured on some golden posters for the film arriving just before Christmas this winter. They're not all that great, to be honest, mostly because the head of Christian Bale looks poorly Photoshopped onto his body in both posters featuring the actor. Plus, we can't help but notice that Edgerton looks pretty odd as the Pharaoh on these posters, though we can't see his orange skin. Look! ›››

Sylvester Stallone

If that trailer for Reach Me left a bad taste in your mouth, Sylvester Stallone might be able to redeem himself with a developing project at Millennium Films from The Expendables franchise producer Avi Lerner. Deadline has word that Stallone will lead Scarpa, a new organized crime thriller from The Lincoln Lawyer director Brad Furman that will tell the story of Gregory Scarpa Sr, a hitman also known as "The Grim Reaper" who was the chief enforcer of the Colombo crime family during the 70s and 80s and an FBI informant for over thirty years. And there's a writer aboard who will please fans of quality mob films as well. ›››

Spielberg & Oprah Talk 'Hundred-Foot Journey' in New Featurette

FirstShowing.net - Tue, 07/08/2014 - 10:00
The Hundred-Foot Journey

When the first trailer for Lasse Hallstrom's adaptation of The Hundred-Foot Journey debuted, quite a big deal was made by the fact that the film is produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey. And now the two entertainment powerhouses discuss the charming story of a clash between two different cultures who eventually find a way to co-exist. Helen Mirren plays a stuck up restaurant proprietor who is not too pleased when an Indian establishment opens up across the street. It looks a little cheesy, but it seems to have a lot of heart, and if the story has the approval of Spielberg, then it must have something to it. ›››

Guardians of the Galaxy

"I look around me and you know what I see? Losers." Following the unveiling of 17 minutes of footage in an extended IMAX preview of Guardians of the Galaxy tonight, Marvel has debuted an extended trailer for the film. Taking a cue from the "Cherry Bomb" infused TV spot, this trailer also features the classic rock tune from The Runaways, in a spectacularly edited tease for the film coming in under a month. There's tons more footage of Rocket Raccoon, and Bradley Cooper is knocking it out of the park while Chris Pratt seems like the perfect makeshift Han Solo as Star-Lord. That last scene is hilarious. Can't wait for this flick. ›››

Jack Reynor & Will Poulter in Quiet, Morose 'Glassland' Teaser Trailer

FirstShowing.net - Mon, 07/07/2014 - 17:03
Glassland

Right now you can catch Jack Reynor in the disappointing blockbuster sequel Transformers: Age of Extinction, but the actor shows some potential in breaking out of the rut in which director Michael Bay has dug for him. Then later this year, Will Poulter steps into blockbuster territory with The Maze Runner. But the two also took the time to star in the quiet drama Glassland, getting ready to premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh this week with a teaser trailer. Toni Collette also stars in the film about a young taxi driver (Reynor) on the fringes of the criminal underworld trying to save his mother from addiction and unite his broken family. It's a short teaser, but it's enticing, and promises a moving, character-driven drama. Watch! ›››

Now that Marvel Studios has hired Yes Man director Peyton Reed to direct Ant-Man after the departure of Edgar Wright, production is looming closer.

Just last month, a new IndieGogo campaign was launched to help Don Cheadle get his gestating Miles Davis biopic off the ground.

AMC Reveals Big Plans to Install Recliners in More Movie Theaters

FirstShowing.net - Mon, 07/07/2014 - 12:44
AMC Movie Theaters

It's time to recline. There's a big story in the Wall Street Journal this week highlighting plans from AMC Entertainment to install more recliner seating in some theaters, while taking out the old crappy style seats in the process of upgrading. The article defends some flack from external criticism about how removing seats just doesn't "make sense" but goes on to explain, with quotes from AMC's CEO Gerry Lopez, that they believe it will be better off in the long run if they put in these recliner seats. Yes, they will eventually charge more for them (but not right at first), and they won't be in NY or LA, but it's still cool to see this happening. ›››

Gone Girl Trailer

"All I'm trying to do is be nice to the people volunteering to help find Amy." It's time. Fox has debuted the second official trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike as Nick and Amy Dunne. This murder mystery involves an interesting cast of characters, with some Fincher twists and turns, many of which are carefully planted in this trailer. The rest of the cast includes Scoot McNairy, Neil Patrick Harris, Missi Pyle, Patrick Fugit, Emily Ratajkowski, even Tyler Perry. This new trailer isn't as sleek as the first one, but I still can't wait to see this, I feel like Fincher has a few tricks up his sleeves and this footage is only just scratching the surface.

Following his weekend gushing over a visit to the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, director Kevin Smith has some updates on projects of his own as well. Speaking with ScreenDaily, Smith talked about the development of Clerks 3, the expected final chapter in his story of two best friends that launched his career in Clerks, the revered indie from 20 years ago. Earlier this year, it was revealed that the sequel would be pushed back for Smith to work on Anti-Claus, formerly known as Comes the Krampus, but the project has hit a speedbump because The Weinstein Company wasn't willing to finance the film themselves.

See the 72 Minute Teaser for Anders Weberg's 720 Hours Long Film

Anders Weberg's Ambiance Teaser

"As a small tease until the premiere in 2020 shorter teaser/trailers will be presented at different occasions." Wait - what? This movie is 720 hours long (that's a month!)? Who is going to watch that?! The first teaser, which runs 72 minutes with "the intent to convey the mood and tempo from the full piece", for Anders Weberg's experimental cinematic project Ambiancé has debuted. For those intrigued by this, it's pretty much just 72 minutes of random, mesmerizing, grainy imagery, and an atmospheric score, without much going on. But that's his entire idea, as this is "abstract nonlinear narrative" and it's all about what you feel while watching it. I can't say I feel much besides confusion, but perhaps that's just me. The final release isn't until 2020, so we've got a few years, but this teaser will only be online until July 20th (2014) - catch it now. ›››

Star Wars

While most of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII has been revealed, there are probably dozens of smaller roles that have been and will be cast, but since they're not major roles, they won't be announced as news. However, Lucasfilm and Disney have gone out of their way to announce the casting of two unknown talents in the film following their open casting call last year that hit 11 cities in the United States and United Kingdom where 37,000 people came to audition, along with 30,000 more applying online. The two names are Crystal Clarke, an American studying across the pond, and Pip Anderson, an actor from the UK. ›››
