A brief clip for Iron Man 3 premiered at tonight’s MTV Movie Awards.
The promo showed Tony’s home under attack, while our hero attempts to find his way into his new Iron Man suit. Check it out below.
Racing is rounding the corner on a real pop culture moment this year. In addition to the buzzy Zac Efron-starrer At Any Price (set for April), Ron Howard’s Rush hits theaters this fall. Chris Hemsworth revs up his regal Thor accent as a take-no-prisoners Formula 1 driver, who says things like, “The closer you are to death, the more alive you feel.” Judge that statement for yourself in the trailer below.
Corduroy blazer-wearing hero? Check. Fetching heroine who belches occasionally? Check. Dreamy electronica soundtrack? Check! Sundance breakout Celeste and Jesse Forever has all the ingredients to be a good, old-fashioned summer sleeper. In place of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, who have vacated their thrones as indie film’s prom king and queen, Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones play a couple whose Facebook status most certainly reads “It’s complicated.” Check out why below.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower centers on several teens’ journey to discover their identities. Among them is Emma Watson’s Sam.

Two new spots were just released for Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis’s upcoming comedy The Campaign. Ferrell plays unctuous Congressman Cam Brady, who appears to have a better grip on his political groupies than the English language. His opponent Marty Huggins (Galifianakis) simply wants to “give Washington a Huggins” — not to mention a thorough cleaning because “it is a mess!”
The ads send up all the clichés of real-world political ads and tweak them for maximum comedy. Who doesn’t like a good Saddam Hussein joke or two? There are also jabs at Communists and out-of-touch fat cats, plus a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him shot of Jack McBrayer (a.k.a. Kenneth from 30 Rock). Start educating yourself on the candidates below.

Mix equal parts Kill Bill, Kick-Ass, and Lolita, and you’ve got Hick, though they may imply more glamor than is really there for the Chloë Grace Moretz film, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. Moretz plays 13-year-old Luli McMullen, who hits the road and finds herself tangled up with a grifter named Glenda (Blake Lively) and a handsome drifter, Eddie (My Week With Marilyn‘s Eddie Redmayne). See the trailer below.
With two and a half months until its July 3 premiere, The Amazing Spider-Man continues to weave its narrative web for fanboys (and girls, of course). A new, darker Japanese trailer offers a more in-depth look into the backstory of Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) and emphasizes the complex dynamic between Peter and Dr. Curt Connors, a.k.a. The Lizard (Rhys Ifans). Check it out below. READ FULL STORY »
An Oscar winner, an Emmy winner, and a son of Tom Hanks are all appearing in a movie together. But this project isn’t serious-minded awards-bait — it’s a high-concept* stoner comedy with a literal title.
See, there’s this school. And everyone in it is high. That’s…basically it. Okay, fine, the story’s a tiny bit more complicated: A slacker and a nerd are worried they’ll get expelled once they fail a mandatory drug test. So they decide to get their entire class baked, figuring that if everyone fails, nobody will get kicked out.
But as in potboiler classics like Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, the plot’s pretty much beside the point. All a movie like this really needs is a couple of hot girls, a series of cheerfully ridiculous set pieces, and, ideally, a few cameos — which is where Adrien Brody, Michael Chiklis, and Colin Hanks come in. Also, apparently, there’s a talking frog. High School will be a masterpiece. Don’t believe me? Check out the trailer, then decide for yourself: READ FULL STORY »
Likes: Long walks on the beach, Bollywood dancing, handsome upperclassmen.
Dislikes: The caste system, servitude, controlling boyfriends.
That’s the skinny on the heroine of Michael Winterbottom’s India-set Tess of the d’Urbervilles adaptation as told through its new trailer. Immortals‘ Freida Pinto and Riz Ahmed (Four Lions) play the class-crossing lovers, and much of the clip focuses on the two leads’ searing chemistry. It takes an ominous turn at the end, of course, and if you’ve read Thomas Hardy’s 1891 novel, I needn’t tell you any more. Simply enjoy the eye candy below. READ FULL STORY »
