Oscar Scuttlebutt: Ten Films You Forgot Were Oscar Contenders

Published by

Philomena
Every year there are films that are nominated for Oscars that got there because of campaigning, and sometimes a dearth of other possible candidates. These are films that were nominated for things because of possibly contractually obligated Oscar pushes, or because it was assumed they were better than they were. Here are a list of ten films from the last ten years that have either been...

'A Million Ways To Die In The West' Green Band Trailer Is Here

Published by

a million ways to die in the west
Seth MacFarlane has been bringing a bunch of wonderfully raunchy humor back into the mainstream. Now that's not to say it ever disappeared; it was just a little dormant after the teen sex comedies had their run in early 2000. Thanks to the success of Ted, we're getting an additional dose of raunchy MacFarlane comedy on the big screen with his latest, A Million Ways To...

'Mad Max: Fury Road' Won't Be Released Until May 2015

Mad Max: Fury Road may be a sequel/reboot to a franchise that’s been dormant for nearly 30 years, but we’re still pretty excited about it.  First off, the Mad Max franchise is just, well, awesome (OK, well, minus about half of Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome).  Second, if Mel Gibson’s road warrior Max had to be...

After what seems like a decade of rumors, false starts, troubled shooting and more, it's hard to believe that George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road would ever be released, much less filmed. But as production has wrapped it looks like - yes - we will someday, perhaps even next year, get to see the fourth entry in this road-rage maximum opus. Now's there's picture  proof...

10 Great Risky Performances In Movies

Risky Performances
Cloud Atlas appears to be this year's Inception as it's a big budget brainy sci-fi film. But, instead of traveling through different levels of dreams, this film follows the intertwining lives of various characters through their past, present and future. The cast is flooded with A-list actors including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Sturgess,...

When you hear that a classic and/or cult film franchise like the Mad Max series will be rebooted as an all-new trilogy, it’s sure to make you more than a little nervous.  Then you find out it’s in 3D, and you go even more nuts.  Then you find that the director, writer and creator of the original trilogy (George Miller) is returning to write and...

Prometheus: Movie Review

Published by

One can walk a very fine line between having a movie be a prequel or it's own original piece. At the same time, if you're watching a movie you don't want to be constantly guessing over whether or not it has any connection to the filmmaker's previous flicks. With Ridley Scott's Prometheus, a lot of fans were under the impression that not only is he going back to his...

Snow White and the Huntsman: Movie Review

Snow White and the Huntsman - Kristen Stewart
This Friday, Rupert Sanders makes his feature directorial debut with Universal's Snow White and the Huntsman. It's an action-packed take on the classic fairy tale that features Kristen Stewart as the fairest one of all. The film steps away from the princess who needs rescuing and gives her an independent makeover. But even though she has the innocence...

Prometheus ship
With a week and a half left before the film’s U.S. premiere, Prometheus just can’t help but release yet another featurette on the film, this time concerning the titular spacecraft that gives the movie its name.  Featuring about a minute of all-new (and, admittedly, pretty cool) footage, the featurette tells us a lot about the ship and the technology of the fictional year 2089. ...

Latest 'Prometheus' Featurette Talks Aliens (Not 'Alien')

Published by

prometheus noomi rapace
Prometheus may be R rated, but it's gunning to be one of the big event films of the summer, and the advertising and viral videos are now hitting the frequency of Avengers material. Perhaps it's a winning strategy. The latest from the Prometheus cast and crew concerns extra terrestrials. An interesting word...

While the big summer buzz is mostly attached to The Avengers, Prometheus, The Amazing Spider-Man, and The Dark Knight Rises, Snow White and The Huntsman has been steadily building up steam on the way to its June 1 premiere.  We’ve already seen a great full trailer, received news of a pre-approved sequel, and caught a great poster and solid new...

Latest 'Prometheus' Featurette Reveals Even More

Published by

Charlize Theron and Idris Elba in 'Prometheus'
For a while there you could say that Ridley Scott's Prometheus was playing cute. It was embracing one of J.J. Abrams's favorite marketing schemes - the puzzle box - where part of the fun was not knowing what the film exactly was until you got into the theater. That game plan has been modified for marketing recently, and now we're getting a clearer sense of what the...

Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman
Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron are heading up the big-screen action-fantasy film version of Snow White and the Huntsman, and it feels weird to say this, but man does this look right.

The Trailer for the Trailer for Snow White and the Huntsman

Published by

Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman
The latest and possibly most grotesque trend in marketing is now to offer a preview of an upcoming trailer. Or - to put it bluntly - a trailer for a trailer. These thirty second clips tease the images that will be teased at greater length in the near future. We've seen it with Super Bowl ads, and now we're seeing it as a common practice for tentpole releases. Why not drag out the hype a couple...

Trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus

Published by

Prometheus
Quick of cut and huge of scale, the trailer for Ridley Scott's Prometheus ties the film into his 1979 film Alien in two distinct ways. One is the lettering that comes as we get quick flashes of cast members Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba. The other is a certain prop that looks mighty familiar to fans of the...
