Crimson Peak

Watch The First Trailer For Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Crimson Peak’

If you are a fan of some of Guillermo del Toro’s works (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Pacific Rim), then you should be excited for his upcoming film, Crimson Peak. It’s a horror flick set in Victoria-era England and follows the aspiring writer Edith Cushing (Mia Wasikowska). She falls in love with a mysterious man and subsequently moves into a large, creepy mansion with him and his eccentric sister. Edith quickly learns that not only is the home alive, but it breathes, bleeds and has memories.

If the plot sounds intriguing to you, you can watch the …

Wiz Khalifa & Iggy Azalea Share ‘Furious 7′ Track “Go Hard or Go Home”

With less than two months to go until Furious 7 rolls into theaters, Wiz Khalifa and Iggy Azalea have shared their collaborative contribution to the film’s soundtrack.

Titled “Go Hard Or Go Home,” the first track to surface from Furious 7 puts an emphasis on fun and family. The hook may repeat the title of the song over and over, but the heart of the track can be summarized with the line “Give it all for the family.” Wiz and Iggy swap verses throughout, with Wiz taking the reins and (surprisingly) keeping pot talk to a minimum. You can stream …

Latest ‘House Of Cards’ Season 3 Teaser Is Full Of Tension

Trying to move attention away from last week’s short-lived content leak, Netflix has shared a new teaser for House Of Cards season 3.

Subtitled ‘White House Portrait,’ the latest teaser for House Of Cards season 3 finds president Frank Underwood posing with the first lady in the oval office. As they prepare for the photographer to snap his shot, a voice over from Frank talks about feeling a slight hesitation/resistance from his wife when he touches her shoulder. It seems one-sided at first, but then a voice over from his wife sends chills down your spine with the line “I …

Fifty-Shades-Movie-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Muses Limp But Whips Smart

Film: Fifty Shades of Grey
Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
Starring: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Marcia Gay Harden

It would be wrong of me, as a male critic, to dictate what a whole gender looks for in a film by judging the worldwide success and huge following that Fifty Shades of Grey has garnered. Instead, I chose to judge the Sam Taylor-Johnson directed film as an adaptation, a project that partially stands on its own from the source material. Despite the turgid story that highlights an abusive relationship where one side errs to actions that can be only classified as encroaching …

‘Hot Pursuit’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon + Sofia Vergara = Big Laughs

Two years after The Heat proved women can hold their own in the world of action-comedies, Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara have joined forces for a new feature we can’t wait to see.

Hot Pursuit tells the story of a promising young police officer (Witherspoon) who receives her first big assignment. She is tasked with transporting a key witness (Sofia Vergara) to a very important trial, but before that can happen a lot of gunplay and explosions occur, which propels the women–who of course could not be more different–on a spontaneous road trip while they try to figure out their …

Drake Shares New Short Film, ‘Jungle’

Amidst a flurry of rumors regarding his plans to release new music, Drake has shared a gorgeous and incredibly intimate short film titled Jungle with the world.

Released through the OVO blog early Thursday morning, Jungle offers glimpses of Drake’s life. We begin in the present, with Aubrey discussing the state of hip-hop and his concerns for its future. We then go back in time to Drake’s youth, complete with adorable family videos, then back to the present for a hypnotic trip through Toronto at night. Along the way a series of new tracks are teased, but (of course) no …

The-Better-Angels-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Better Angels’ Sweeps, Panders, And Obscures

Film: The Better Angels
Directed by: A.J. Edwards
Starring: Jason Clarke, Brit Marling, Diane Kruger

A quote from Abraham Lincoln himself opens the film as such, “All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” The Better Angels, the new indie project by producer Terrence Malick (The Tree of Life, The Thin Red Line) and protégé director A.J. Edwards, scantly explores patriarchal and matriarchal issues and how they form us into adults. Akin to Malick’s projects, the camera sweeps across the wilderness of Indiana in 1817 with an intricate eye. Its …

The ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Red Band Trailer Is Here, And It Looks Insane

In 1988, N.W.A released their revolutionary record Straight Outta Compton. Arguably the most significant album in the history of rap music, it represented much more than most modern hip-hop does. It was a commentary on the life and times of being a young black man in the streets of South Central Los Angeles.

This August, their story will be told on the big screen across the country. Tonight, we have the first official uncensored trailer for the film. Featuring an introduction starring none other than Dr. Dre and Ice Cube (and some guest appearances by The Game and …

Jupiter-Ascending-Movie-Review-1

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Is Silly, Gorgeous, And Fun

Film: Jupiter Ascending
Directed by: Andy & Lana Wachowski
Starring: Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne

There once lived a little girl named Jupiter who was destined for bigger and better things. One day her gravity boots-wearing Prince showed up to- wait a second; this sounds like every trope beaten to death in the most generic of big budget films. The Wachowski’s newest doesn’t dare to take the space road less traveled in terms of narrative. If spectacle is your game, then you may be hard pressed to find another film as good looking as Jupiter Ascending. Although I …

The-Voices-Review

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Voices’ Blends Murder, Comedy, And Mental Illness With Mixed Results

Film: The Voices
Starring: Ryan Reynolds
Directed By: Marjane Satrapi

Part black comedy, part cautionary tale of untreated mental disease, The Voices is an uneven murderous romp carried almost entirely by its star.

Ryan Reynolds stars as Jerry, a seemingly mild-mannered factory worker living above an abandoned bowling alley somewhere in middle America. Jerry appears normal on the surface, albeit a little shy when it comes to public speaking, but when he finds himself alone at home things start to get a little weird. Jerry talks to his animals, which is something many of us can relate to, but I’m …

Furious 7

Second ‘Furious 7′ Trailer Teases “One Last Ride”

There was a time when it seemed like the Fast And Furious franchise would live forever. Then the untimely death of Paul Walker cast doubts on the longevity of the series, including the upcoming seventh installment, which was in production at the time of his passing. Universal found a way to complete the picture, however, and now it seems like the world’s longest running car racing franchise may soon be the studio’s golden goose once more.

Today, a second trailer for Furious 7 found its way online. The video features footage from the first trailer combined with the quick clips …
