On the heels on the news of Wes Anderson’s new movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel, comes news of a book on his movies, career, and his universe of films as a whole.
And I can’t wait.
This book is coming from Pulitzer Prize winning writer Matt Zoller Seitz, and official synopsis says, “A true auteur, Anderson is known for the visual artistry, inimitable tone, and idiosyncratic characterizations that make each of his films—Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Moonrise Kingdom—instantly recognizable as “Andersonian.” The Wes Anderson Collection is the first in-depth overview of Anderson’s filmography, guiding readers through his life and career.”

In case you didn’t know, SUPERMAN turns 75th this year. And to celebrate, Warner Bros. Animation teamed up with Man of Steel director, Zack Snyder to make a short showcasing those glorious 75 years. Starting from his first appearance, all the way to the Man of Steel movie.
I can’t say it enough, I LOVE the films by Wes Anderson. And I cannot even begin to tell you HOW stoked I am to learn there’s a new film coming from the iconic director! AND a trailer was released today!
The film in question, The Grand Budapest Hotel, which follows a legendary concierge and his friendship with a young employee, and as with every film, Anderson’s trademark look is seen throughout the trailer. But what is interesting is that the trailer is presented in a fullscreen format? Which, oddly enough, seems to suit the director’s style of filmmaking, and just makes me even more curious how it will play out in the theatre.
But check out the trailer, and first poster for the film after the jump Continue reading TRAILER AND POSTER FOR ‘THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL’
Supposedly the rumor of the day is that you can expect to hear details (like a title), and confirmed casting news this month about episode VII.
But it doesn’t end there. Again, take this with a grain of salt, but you can expect to see a teaser trailer sooner than later. But if true, I imagine it’s probably gonna be a voiceover over scenes of the original trilogy.
But we’ll see what happens!
I gotta say, I was hopeful for this movie. I mean, I’ve been needing me some solid sci-fi/horror for a LONG TIME. I think the last sci-fi/horror film that scared the crap out of me was Event Horizon, funnilly enough, also starring Laurence Fishburne, who stars here as well. So when I started seeing spots for this movie, I was getting more and more excited. Post-apocalyptic horror goodness. All starring my man Fishburne…
…sad to say, this movie was shit. Continue reading REVIEW: ‘The Colony’, SKIP IT!!!
“Life is about courage and going into the unknown…”
I honestly can’t remember the first time I saw the teaser for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, but I was immediately sold. I had no idea what the movie was about, but the initial teaser was so inspirational and engaging. The scenes it presented so visually stunning… yea, I don’t know how else to say it…
…I was sold.
But now the first full length trailer has been released. A little insight into the story… and I personally can’t wait for this to come out. Check out the trailer after the jump. Continue reading Full Length Trailer for ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’
The first trailer to Gareth Edwards reboot is here! Check out the video after the jump! Continue reading ‘GODZILLA’ TRAILER!!!
Damn do I love me some production/behind the scenes stuffs. And for your viewing pleasure, here is a featurette on the ship to ship scene in Star Trek into Darkness.

Love it. Hate it. But J.J. Abrams apologizes for the lens flares in the Star Trek movies.
I know I get a lot of grief for that,” says Abrams. “But I’ll tell you, there are times when I’m working on a shot, I think, ‘Oh this would be really cool… with a lens flare.’ But I know it’s too much, and I apologize. I’m so aware of it now. I was showing my wife an early cut of Star Trek Into Darkness and there was this one scene where she was literally like, ‘I just can’t see what’s going on. I don’t understand what that is.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I went too nuts on this.'” “This is how stupid it was,” J.J. Abrams added. “I actually had to use ILM [Industrial Light & Magic] to remove lens flare in a couple of shots, which is, I know, moronic. But I think admitting you’re an addict is the first step towards recovery.
Personally? I didn’t mind them. Even liked them. I thought they added an atmosphere to the movies. But that’s just me, and I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority on that. But still nice to hear filmmakers respond to the fans like this.
21 Jumpstreet was EASILY my favorite comedy that year! I couldn’t remember the last time I laughed that hard. And looks like the cast and crew are back in production, picking up where the first movie left off…
…the cops are going to college.
22 Jumpstreet hits theatres on, June 13, 2014. And I personally CAN. NOT. WAIT!
