If you’ve been following along with ATC the last few months, you know how high I am on musical drama Whiplash, led by Miles Teller and J.K. Simmons.

A new trailer has made it’s way online and it continues to display just out action packed and intense this film about striving for greatness is.

Winning everything at Sundance, Whiplash is like Full Metal Jacket at music school. J.K. Simmons plays a crazy, strict, no-nonsense music academy instructor, pushing drummer Miles Teller to his breaking point.

Whiplash opens on October 10, 2014.

First Image From Ant-Man Surfaces

Filming for Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man has finally begun.

The first image has officially surfaced which features thief-turned-hero Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) standing out by the Golden Gate Bridge.

I’m really interested to see how Rudd does in a role like this as it seems so far away from his normal choices. But that’s a good thing.

Corey Stoll plays Pym’s star employee Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, who wants the Ant-Man suit for nefarious purposes, and Evangeline Lilly co-stars as Pym’s daughter, Hope Van Dyne.

The film also stars Michael Douglas, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John Slattery.

Hit the jump for the first official image.

Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17th, 2015.

2014 has been and will continue to be one hell of an impressive year for Jack O’Connell.

Already giving a break through performance in Starred Up,  O’Connell has a handful of projects on the way to close out the year including Angelina Jolie’s Oscar contender Unbroken and this war thriller ’71.

Getting rave reviews from the Berlin Film Festivals amongst others, O’Connell stars as a young British soldier in Belfast in 1971 that is accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot.  Trapped behind enemy lines, he’s unable to tell friend from foe, and we follow as he tries to find his way home, while the locals battle for supremacy.

No release date is confirmed for the US yet, but the film opens in the U.K. on October 10th, 2014.

Trailer: Men, Women & Children

Socially and culturally relevant to our everyday lives, the premise behind Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children will resonate with audiences.

It’s a shame though, that a very similar film (Disconnect) was released just last year, and was excellent, and it’ll be overshadowed by this bigger budgeted picture.

The film focuses on how crippled by technology we are today and just how much it’s ruining our everyday lives.

Adam Sandler, Ansel Elgort, Kaitlyn Dever, Judy Greer, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jennifer Garner, and Dennis Haysbert star in the film that hits theaters on October 3rd, 2014.

Final Trailer for Bridge and Tunnel

With the festival circuit coming to a close for Jason Michael Brescia’s second feature film Bridge and Tunnel, the team has released it’s final trailer. This one specifically for theaters.

The film Stars Ryan Metcalf, Arjun Gupta, Mary Kate Wiles, Annet Mahendru, Joe Murphy, Brianne Berkson, Chris Viemeister, Natalie Knepp and Wass Stevens as they experience life in Long Island, New York. Childhood friends Sal, Terry, Nate, Eric and Lina have had to grow up in a post 9/11 New York. They graduated high school at the peak of the War on Terror, and began adulthood amidst a global financial crisis. Now at the crossroads of their mid-twenties they find themselves unhappy with their places in life.

Having seen the film and enjoying it, I can firmly recommend it, especially older teens and those in their mid to late twenties. It’s relatable and that alone should be a selling point. The characters in this film represent those of us who went to school, stayed out of trouble, graduated from college and then had nothing to show for it in the professional world. Times are tough, and while the older generation likes to throw around the phrase “you have it easy these days,” it’s a bit misguided.

Bridge and Tunnel depicts this message with vigor and a bunch of self awareness.

Ben Affleck Talks About Playing Batman

When it was announced that Ben Affleck would play Batman, the internet exploded. Fans were livid, for whatever reason this casting choice angered the nerds to a boiling point.

But that was expected.

Myself, on the other hand, loved the casting. Affleck isn’t the same actor he was 10 years ago, he isn’t the guy doing stupid romantic films anymore. He will thrive.

Now, the film is deep in production and shooting all over the world, rumors are flying, and theories are being concocted.

Affleck sat down with Entertainment Weekly to talk about this high profile role and what it’s like being the new Caped Crusader.

I Mourn for Robin WIlliams and My Childhood

Sitting in my car, shortly past 7pm this evening, I learned of the passing of acclaimed comedian Robin Williams.

Blank stare on my face, I was transfixed by the words on my iPhone screen:

“Holy sh*t Robin Williams is dead”

I couldn’t believe it. I refused to believe it.

I refused to start my car and drive home. I was in a state of paralysis; the words simply didn’t make sense.

The man who played iconic characters that defined my childhood was no more. But he will live on, thanks to the countless amounts of films he’s made, and millions of jokes he has told.

Kristen Sewart has a few stigma’s she is trying to shed in Hollywood. Camp X-Ray  could go a long way in doing so.

The film also stars Payman Maadi, Lane Garrison, J.J. Soria and John Carroll Lynch.

Trailer: Two Night Stand

It’s obvious Miles Teller’s stock is pointing way way up. With huge films on the way like the highly anticipated Whiplash and next summer’s The Fantastic Four, Teller is poised to become one of Hollywood’s next big stars. After That Awkward Moment sort of came and went, Teller is trying his hand at the rom-com genre again, this time without Zac Efron and Michael B. Jordan, and with Analeigh Tipton.

Two Night Stand stars Teller and Tipton as Megan and Alec, two young adults who are just looking to hook up. Working up the courage to go on a one night stand via internet, Meghan finds Alec, does the deed and falls asleep. When she wakes up she realizes it’s time to go but winds up trapped in the house due to a snow storm. That’s where the fun begins.

Tipton has long been a favorite of mine, she’s subtle in her roles but has serious acting chops and my take on Teller has well been documented. This should be a fun little film for date night.

The film also stars Kid Cudi and Jessica Szohr.

Two Night Stand hits theaters on September 26th.
