‘Batman v Superman’ Teaser To Run In Front Of ‘The Hobbit’

They might not admit it to the public, but it’s pretty clear to anyone paying attention that DC Comics is desperately trying to catch up to, if not top, Marvel‘s cinematic universe. Every time one company announces something big, the other one follows, and every time it’s the fans who win.

We have just under two years to wait until Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice hits theaters, but according to a new story on Forbes we might get a glimpse of the superhero epic as soon as December 2014. Writer Mark Hughes claims to have heard from a …

‘Top Five’ Trailer Proves Chris Rock Is Still The King Of Comedy

There are many icons in the world of stand-up comedy, but many of those who have been given that title are no longer among the living. There are only a few ‘greats’ still walking around in 2014, and of those even less are actively doing comedy in a live setting. Chris Rock has not toured for several years, but in his latest film he digs deep into his history to present a story that could very much be a reality for someone in his position.

Top Five introduces the world to a man (played by Chris Rock) whose fame has …

Machine Gun Kelly Makes His Big Screen Debut In Latest ‘Beyond The Lights’ Trailer

Ohio native Machine Gun Kelly is the latest in a long line of hip-hop celebrities to try and find success on the silver screen. Lucky for us, his first role is a rapper.

Beyond The Lights is the latest film from Love & Basketball creator Gina Prince-Bythewood. The film follows a young musician, who looks just a bit like Rihanna, that finds herself struggling with the pressure of success while on the verge of becoming the next big pop star. To make matters worse, her love life is a mess, including what appears to be a less than peaceful relationship …

‘Camp X-Ray’ Gets A New Trailer

Camp X-Ray, a film that follows a guard at Guantanamo Bay, has been given a new trailer.

Featuring Twilight star Kristen Stewart, and A Separation star Peyman Moaadi, the film will examine a guard’s (Stewart) relationship with a detainee (Moaadi).

The film seems to provoke questions based on the uses of detention facilities at Gitmo, and will be sure to provide controversy and question on both political ends of the spectrum.

Although the film has received mixed reviews thus far, many critics have been praising Stewart’s performance. Moaadi, who will most likely be new to American audiences, provided a …

UTG INTERVIEW: Director Ned Benson Discusses ‘The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby’

To cast both Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy in your first feature film you’ve got to be a pretty special director, and after seeing The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby: Them, I can vouch for the fact that Ned Benson has some pretty special traits to him as a filmmaker.

His first feature film, The Disappearance Of Eleanor Rigby, is split into three parts – HimHer, and Them – each exploring different viewpoints and perspectives as to why the relationship between Conor Ludlow (McAvoy) and Eleanor Rigby (Chastain) failed. It portrays their relationship in both a raw

Official ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Plot Synopsis Released

Marvel has released the official plot synopsis for its upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age Of Ultron, sequel to the highly praised The Avengers.

It appears that crazed robotic entity Ultron will be a side-effect of a Tony Stark project gone wrong, and he will be voiced by none other than the enigmatic James Spader. Along with Spader, Earth’s mightiest heroes will include Evans’ Captain America, Downey’s Iron Man, Ruffalo’s Hulk, Hemsworth’s Thor, Renner’s Hawkeye and Johansson’s Black Widow with additional support from (ex?) S.H.I.E.L.D operatives. Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch will also be seen onscreen, in the form of illusive …

Love Bad Movies? Help The Internet Make ‘Samurai Cop 2′ A Reality

There are bad movies and then there are those films that are so godawful that they somehow become cult hits that outlast well made films in terms of popularity by a wide margin. The Room is a classic example, as well as Troll 2, but in my opinion neither of those creative endeavors can hold a candle to the ludicrous film known as Samurai Cop.

Created in 1991 and almost immediately forgotten by the vast majority of the general public, Samurai Cop is a horrendous film chock full of bad acting, crap dialogue, and over the top action …

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Film: Guardians Of The Galaxy
Directed by: James Gunn
Starring: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana,

We need to get some things out of the way before we start this review. The current cinema is completely oversaturated with superhero/comic book films. Most of them are the same; every hero is getting their own movie, all of which have relatively the same aesthetics. The worst part about this is, Marvel shows no sign of stopping, with even just recently announcing they have films planned through 2019, which is nothing short of ridiculous. These superhero and comic book adaptations have become so prevalent in …
