Returning to 'Jedi': Ewok down memory lane with Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Chris Hardwick, Eli Roth -- VIDEO
EW approached filmmaker Kyle Newman (Fanboys) with a simple proposition: Will you make us a short film that collects famous voices talking about Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi and their feelings about the film as it reaches its 30th anniversary?
After sweet-talking him with promises of no money and too-little time, we mentioned that he was our only hope and, weirdly, that worked. The result is The Return of Return of the Jedi: 30 Years and Counting, which shows elite geeks — among them Kevin Smith, Seth Green, Chris Hardwick, Jaime King, Topher Grace, Fall Out Boy, Eli Roth, and Jason Mewes — revisiting the movie in which tribal Teddy Ruxpins put down an Imperial invasion force with rocks, logs, and other Gilligan’s Island-esque props. Who saw that coming?
Cinemagoers in 2013 are experiencing a veritable (and biblically-appropriate) plague of apocalypse comedies. But only one stars Craig Robinson from The Office as the Anti-Christ — and its name is Rapture-Palooza.
The film — whose cast also includes Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, Rob Corddry, and Thomas Lennon — is being unleashed to theaters on June 7 and will also be available on demand. But you can check out an exclusive clip from the movie featuring Kendrick and Daley below. READ FULL STORY »
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… another new trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which combines this staticky message from General Zod with the darker tone, battle scenes, and shots of Henry Cavill’s Bearded Super-Fisherman we’ve seen in other spots. All of it, naturally, is set to Hans Zimmer’s pounding score. The fate of our planet rests on you watching this video:
Check out the trailer for 'Kill List' director Ben Wheatley's new movie, 'A Field In England' -- VIDEO
Can a film be black and white and still be psychedelic? That’s one of the (many) questions raised by the first trailer for A Field In England, the latest film from prolific U.K. director Ben Wheatley, whose last movie, Sightseers, was featured on our Must List just a couple of weeks back.
A Field In England is set during the English Civil War and stars Julian Barratt from comedy duo The Mighty Boosh, Wheatley regular Michael Smiley (Kill List, Luther), and Reece Shearsmith (The League of Gentlemen). You can check out the trailer for the film, which was recently acquired by Drafthouse Films, below. READ FULL STORY »
X-Men Origins: Wolverine was the story of how our favorite clawed misanthrope got his scowl back, while this year’s The Wolverine (which mostly ignores that earlier film, like, completely) is about a man ready to give that scowl — and those claws — up. In the new trailer, we get still more insight into how terrible Logan’s life has become. He’s having nightmares of killing Jean Grey and not caring for his wildman beard. And then an “old friend” discovers a cure for his immortality: ”A man can run out of things to live for.”
Psych! Logan has to fight with/against a number of rogues: Yukio, Viper, and the Silver Samurai. I kind of wish Dream-Jean was sticking around — Hemlock Grove gave Famke Janssen a nice lick of malice.
Watch the new trailer below.
X-Men: Days of Future Past director Bryan Singer has been regularly tweeting from the Montreal set of his highly anticipated superhero flick due out next summer.

Director Guillermo del Toro’s giant-robots giant-robots-versus-giant-monsters sci-fi action epic Pacific Rim won’t stomp into theaters until July 12, but the film’s backers already see its franchise potential as, well, giant—so much so that a sequel was greenlit before the movie was finished. After the first screening, Legendary Entertainment CEO Thomas Tull immediately told del Toro to start writing a follow-up. “He said, ‘Do you think you can come up with a great idea?’ ” del Toro remembers. “I said, ‘F—, yeah!’ ! Because on the way to the finished screenplay, there were entire angles and ideas that we chopped off because they were too much.” READ FULL STORY »
Marvel's Phase Three: 'Doctor Strange,' 'Iron Man 4,' 'Hulk,' 'Inhumans' or 'Runaways' on horizon? -- EXCLUSIVE
Big things happen in threes.
With Iron Man 3 heading into its third weekend, now is the perfect time to look ahead to what Marvel Studios may be planning for its own third act — the evolving multi-movie slate known as Phase Three.
Phase One for the comic book studio was the series of films that culminated in last year’s The Avengers. Phase Two begins with Iron Man 3, and will build to Avengers 2 in 2015, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, and Guardians of the Galaxy in between.
The question that still hasn’t been resolved, even internally at the studio… What comes next?
We wouldn’t want to give the impression that V/H/S/2 is an entirely laugh-free zone. But this apocalyptically-minded horror anthology sequel certainly takes a more serious approach to the end of the world than out-and-out apocalypse comedies like the recently released It’s A Disaster and the forthcoming This Is The End.
V/H/S/2 — which features sections overseen by Hobo with a Shotgun filmmaker Jason Eisener and You’re Next director Adam Wingard, among others — will be available on demand on June 6 and arrives in cinemas July 12. You can check out the gory, offensive, and just plain weird, red-band trailer below. READ FULL STORY »
