One day after A24 purchased Ex Machina and gave it a April 10, 2015 release date, we get our first trailer.

Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac star in a story centered on a love triangle of sorts with Alicia Vikander as the robot woman in the middle, who is the world’s first true artificial intelligence.

Gleeson has been doing great things for his career over the last two years and Isaac has put his stamp on Hollywood as one of the best actors going right now.

It’s safe to say, this will be the biggest, most action packed Hunger Games film to date.

In Mockingjay – Part 1 - we see Katniss reeling from Peeta being captured – only to go up against President Snow and the Capitol with her friends who built their own underground resistance.

Many familiar faces return including Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stanley Tucci, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks and Sam Claflin. New additions to the cast include Natalie Dormer, Stef Dawson, Annie Cresta and Julianne Moore as President Coin.

The new (short, thankfully) trailer shows us a lot of new footage as we are less than a month away from release date.

Doom and gloom, that’s what the theme seems to be from the first trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The internet caught a buzz when the trailer leaked earlier today, but it was only up for a short period of time. Those that were quick enough to see it were raving.

As the leak made waves, Marvel handled it perfectly:


 


So as Marvel’s original plan to unleash the trailer next week during ABC’s SHIELD show failed, they did what was right – releasing the official trailer now.

Joss Whedon’s follow up to The Avengers, shows Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.),  Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Thor, (Chris Hemsworth), Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), teaming up again to battle an unstoppable robot named Ultron, played by James Spader.

Avengers: Age of Ultron also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Andy Serkis, and Samuel L. Jackson and hits theaters May 1, 2015.

Paramount has released the first trailer for Rupert Wyatt’s James Caan 1974 remake ofThe Gambler.

The film follows Mark Wahlberg’s character as he gets in deep debt due to his titular addiction and the effects are felt by those closest to him, including his mother (Jessica Lange) and significant other (Brie Larson).

Paramount believes strongly in the film and are releasing it now to push for awards consideration. The first red band trailer is here.

The films also stars John Goodman and. Michael K. Williams. In an interview with USA Today, Wahlberg said losing 40lbs for the role wasn’t the hardest part, being a professor was:

“Being believable as a teacher was one of my greatest challenges and most rewarding. It meant being able to have the comfort to really understand and say those words.”

The Gambler opens on December 19th and expands on January 2nd.

Review: Fury

Throughout history, we have seen countless films about World War II. Yet year after year it seems like we get new ones, with slight tweaks.

2014 is no different, but David Ayer’s Fury focused on a portion of war we haven’t seen to date: the dynamic between a group of five soldiers inside a tank, leading the front line trying to win a battle for their country and humanity.

It’s 1945 and the Nazi’s are making their presence felt in the war, things are starting to get dark and bleak quickly. A battle-tested sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier leads a team into the heart of gunfire in order to protect his country’s freedom.

Fury pulls no punches and it doesn’t try to hide the gruesome reality of combat. Severed heads, bullet wounds, and dead bodies riddle the landscape, but the sense of authenticity is apparent, as Sony spared no expense.

SAW Producers Ready to Return to Series

Ready to play another game?

While many weren’t a fan of the Saw franchise, I adore the series.

Yes a few of the films missed their mark, but every Halloween I’d park my butt in a theater and watch the next installment. Unfortunately the 7th and last film was the worst of them all and made me literally throw my 3D (ugh) glasses across the theater in anger.

Saw is returning to theaters at the end of the month as it’s been 10 years since the original.

Well, now producers Mark Burg and Oren Koules are considering a return to the series.

Trailer: In the Heart of the Sea

We all know the story of Moby Dick, but not like this.

Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth proved to be a great team after Rush, so they figured they’d do it again. In the Heart of the Sea takes inspiration from Herman Melville‘s novel Moby Dick, but is actually based on Nathaniel Philbrick‘s book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, which tracks a whaling ship in 1920 that go up against their prey and are stranded at sea.

“It has a lot of action in it, and that’s vitally important,” Howard tells USA Today. “But it’s also dependent on rich characters and nuanced emotional performances, and those are all aspects of the movie we’re also dealing with under great physical duress.”

The film also stars Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, and Jordi Mollà.

In the Heart of the Sea opens on March 13th, 2015.

The idea of Ryan Gosling signing on to play a superhero, or tie himself down to franchise seemed to be a bit far fetched. The type of films he has done so far have given him a ton of freedom for other projects and in turn have allowed him to be as versatile as possible.

Gosling is currently getting ready to start filming Shane Black’s 1970s crime noir The Nice Guys opposite Russell Crowe, but Gosling is looking big picture.

According to Heat Vision Gosling is currently mulling over a handful of franchises to lead: Marvel’s Doctor Strange, Summit’s The Secret life of Houdini, and Warner Bros. Suicide Squad.
