"I want something people can't turn away from." In this age of sensationalized news, it's the perfect time for this twisted thriller Nightcrawler starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a desperate freelance crime journalist in Los Angeles willing to do anything to get a good story. However, when some of his shady activities to craft the best feature for a hungry network executive (Rene Russo) get him in trouble with the law, he just might end up being the next juicy headline himself. This looks pretty damn intense and even gruesome, showcasing another fantastic performance from Gyllenhaal, which is becoming a regular thing. Watch now! ›››

"Sometimes demons get attached to objects." Following a terrifying introduction to the origin story of Annabelle, the doll who made her big screen debut in The Conjuring, the full theatrical trailer for the horror spin-off has arrived. There's the average horrors you would expect, but they're heightened by the presence of a newborn baby being caught up in the terror. Plus, there's one particular creepy surprise towards the end of the trailer. James Wan is only producing this one, but John Leonetti, the director of photography on The Conjuring, seems to have his honored horror spirit (no pun intended). Watch below! ›››
Before premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, we saw an otherworldly teaser for White Bird in a Blizzard, the drama starring Shailene Woodley (Divergent, The Fault in Our Stars), directed by Gregg Araki (Smiley Face). Now the film is poised for release this fall, and the first full trailer has arrived, and it paints a much more conventional picture. Woodley plays Kat Connors, a teenage girl who feels relief from her repressed adolescence when her beautiful homemaking mother (Eva Green) suddenly disappears. But that feeling doesn't last long as she realizes just how much she needed her mother to keep order in her life. ›››
In this edition of movies that might just be crazy enough to work, we have a wild comedy developing between Hyde Park Entertainment, Image Nation Abu Dhabi and the sterling WWE Studios. Deadline has word that The Hangover and "Community" co-star Ken Jeong is being placed in the lead role of a comedy that is currently being referred to as Untitled Celebrity Death Pool. The film will see Jeong playing a struggling night club owner with a massive debt to a loan shark. So in order to get the money he needs to pay them back, he decides to make good on his club's celebrity death pool by killing David Hasselhoff. ›››

In case you forgot, there's a sequel coming to the 2012 gothic horror flick The Woman in Black, the first film that saw Daniel Radcliffe venture outside of the Harry Potter franchise. However, the British star isn't returning for The Woman in Black: Angel of Death. Instead, it's Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Helen McCrory (Skyfall) and Phoebe Fox (Switch) starring in the horror sequel with a new tale of terror in the old, abandoned Eel Marsh House. Now we have a teaser trailer from across the pond, and it doesn't show us much, and that's not just because the YouTube version of this video is far too dark to see anything. Watch! ›››

A filmmaker can have all the production value in the world, but it's not worth a damn if your actors think they're starring in a high school play. That's exactly what seems to be happening in this trailer for Outcast from Arclight Films. In the film Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen are thrown back into 12th century China, which is already a hilarious premise in itself, as ex-Crusades warriors who team up to help the children of a deposed Chinese Emperor battle their murderous uncle. Honestly, despite how pretty this film looks, Cage and Christensen make it look laughably bad, especially with whatever accents they're poorly trying to pull off (Cage saying "lad" puts it over the top). But for that reason, it ay be worth seeing. Watch! ›››

Will it be called Star Wars: Revenge of the Tauntauns or just Episode VII? Who is John Boyega playing and when does he get to have dinner with Luke? So many questions! So few answers. But that doesn't mean we should be making up answers and filling the void, instead we should be waiting patiently to see the new Star Wars in all its glory sometime in 2015. In a genius move, Slate has launched what they're calling the "Star Wars Rumor Generator", a fun little interactive script that creates random Star Wars posters with rumors like the title, who each person is playing, and so on. Yes we're often caught up in the Star Wars news game, but we try to focus on what is actually worth knowing, not every last rumor someone comes up with. ›››

"A father must avenge his son!" Time for some Norwegian revenge. The UK trailer for Hans Petter Moland's new film In Order of Disappearance has debuted, featuring the always-awesome Stellan Skarsgård as well as an impressive Norwegian ensemble cast. The film's structure involves following the deaths of many people, with the madness beginning when Skarsgård's son is found dead. It turns out he was involved in a drug ring and Skarsgård goes a bit crazy and takes on the entire clan, single-handed. It's a very dark, but incredibly fun thriller about the cold, snowy world of Norway. I highly recommend the film after first seeing it in Berlin and I hope it gets a strong US release soon enough. We'll be following it. Until then - have fun! ›››

As one of the few people who gave a positive review of Seth MacFarlane's western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West, I'm absolutely still looking forward to Ted 2, the sequel to the "Family Guy" creator's 2012 raunchy comedy about a grown man and his talking teddy bear that he's had since childhood. The film is set for release on June 26th, 2015 with Mark Wahlberg back in the lead, MacFarlane voicing the title stuffed animal, and Amanda Seyfried taking a female lead role (with Mila Kunis likely not back in a large capacity). Now Deadline reports another character will be back too with Patrick Warburton returning. ›››

We've seen Katie Holmes smirk her way through many performances like Batman Begins, Thank You for Smoking, Don't Be Afraid of the Dark and Jack & Jill. But now she's entering a whole new realm with Miss Meadows. The film debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, and now the first trailer has arrived showing Holmes as a sweet, inspirational grade school teacher by day, who totes a cute little gun as a ruthless vigilante outside of the school yard. She goes from trimming roses to cutting down the scum of her small town. This looks so weird, especially with someone like Holmes in the lead, but you can see for yourself. ›››
Over the weekend, an unsubstantiated rumor claimed that Disney had plans to release the original cuts of the Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray, without all the "Special Edition" alterations made to the films when they were re-released in theaters in 1997. With the exception of a limited DVD release, the unaltered, original cuts haven't been available in high-definition, so that would be awesome. However, Badass Digest smartly pointed out that Fox owns the rights to those films, so it's not really up to Disney whether or not that happens unless some serious negotiations are done (and that's not out of the question). In the meantime, a video from Geeks are Sexy (via SlashFilm) shows some big fans have taken matters into their own hands. ›››

Following a pair of breakthrough performances from Ezra Miller in We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Perks of Being A Wallflower, we haven't seen the actor get nearly as much work as we want him to. But now he's lined up what could be a promising indie project with Billy Crudup and Michael Angarano in the Stanford Prison Experiment. Based on the social study of the same name, the film has been in development for over a decade and The Wrap reports it's coming together with C.O.G. director Kyle Patrick Alvarez at the helm. This certainly seems like timely subject matter considering what's going on in Ferguson, Missouri. ›››

With the forthcoming adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey on the way, if you don't know much about the world of BDSM, then you might be interested in checking out the documentary Kink, produced by James Franco and directed by Christina Voros. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and we got a saucy tease before the film premiered, but now a full trailer has arrived as the film is poised to hit limited theaters in just a couple days. The doc looks as Kink.com, the Internet’s largest producer of BDSM content, and aims to explore the driving force behind this seemingly misunderstood fetish. There's no nudity or sex in the trailer, but the subject matter alone makes this NSFW. Watch below! ›››

"If you want to survive, you must stay with us." Just recently, we highlighted two teaser posters for an upcoming sci-fi flick called Automata, starring Antonio Banderas. Now the first trailer has arrived, and it definitely has our attention. It seems like a mix of Isaac Asimov's I, Robot mixed with Blade Runner and a hint of District 9. It's gritty, with practical robots, and some impressive visuals for such a low profile sci-fi project. Of course, the question is whether or not the big ideas teased in the trailer are effectively transferred to the big screen, unlike the Will Smith attempt to adapt Asimov's classic work. Watch below! ›››
If you've been on the internet at all the past couple weeks, you've undoubtedly seen the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a charity trend sweeping the nation to raise money to fight against amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Many people seem to think that Charlie Sheen delivered the best video of this challenge by dumping $10,000 in cash on his head, all of which he was donating to the cause. However, Dave Grohl and his band Foo Fighters have taken this fun, charitable trend to incredible new heights by creating an elaborate recreation of the infamous pig's blood scene at the prom in Stephen King's Carrie. It's awesome. Watch! ›››

Following news yesterday that Benedict Cumberbatch would reateam with his The Hobbit trilogy motion-capture co-star Andy Serkis for his directorial debut on Jungle Book: Origins, the rest of the cast has been revealed, including the role of young Mowgli. THR reports Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan and Peter Mullan have all landed animal roles in the film which is a new telling of the orphan boy Mowgli who is raised in the jungle by the animal kingdom. In addition, Rohan Chand, the kid from Jason Bateman's comedy Bad Words, will play the jungle boy. ›››
In case you forgot, there's still a remake of the classical musical Annie coming this winter, just before families get together for Christmas. This time it's breakout Beasts of the Southern Wild actress Quvenzhané Wallis taking the titular lead as an orphan who gets upgraded to the big time when New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks (Jamie Foxx) takes her under his wing in a mutually beneficial relationship used to boost his approval ratings and give Annie an upscale home for awhile. But of course, they end up finding a unique bond, and Stacks ends up wanting to have a more permanent place in her life. This latest trailer from the United Kingdom goes into full-on musical mode in the Big Apple. Watch now! ›››

For anyone who grew up when Nintendo 64 was new and popular, the James Bond game GoldenEye is easily one of the best games from that time. Today there are still plenty of people who held on to their system and play the game with their friends. But what if you could play the game with James Bond himself? Well, that's exactly what Jimmy Fallon did on "The Tonight Show" last night when Pierce Brosnan came on the show to promote The November Man, the film hitting theaters next week and that also just had a sequel announced to be in development. So did Brosnan hold his own against Fallon at all? Watch below! ›››

15 miles from paradise...one man will do anything to tell the world everything. One of the formative films in my early years exploring cinema was City of God, about the impoverished and corrupt reality of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. While the film has gone on to much acclaim, a new poster organization has decided to make their first artwork for Fernando Meirelles' City of God, released in 2002. "A business years in the making, FAMP Art was founded to bridge the gap between pop culture art and art house cinema, focusing on films that don’t get much love in the art community but are praised in the world of cinema (and that we ourselves love)." Sounds like they're challenging Mondo and Gallery1988 and I like it, especially debuting with this. ›››

Last fall, Pixar Animation had to push back the release of The Good Dinosaur from an initial release this past summer back to November 25th, 2015. The news came just a few weeks after we learned Bob Peterson had been removed from the film as director and a brain trust consisting of John Lasseter, Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, replacement Brave director Mark Andrews, and Party Cloudy short director Pete Sohn were put in place to take over the project. Now we have word that Pixar has completely overhauled the film as voice star John Lithgow says the film has been drastically changed for the better. ›››
