This is pretty much the Black Friday for moviegoers. The trailer debut for Star Wars: The Force Awakens has just been announced. Sources say it will be revealed in nine theaters, and it will be played before every movie shown. We don’t know exactly when it will be made available online. It’s a great movie marketing strategy, since the Friday after Thanksgiving is generally the busiest for various business, including movie theaters. Based on the information released, the nine theaters that will show this are exclusively Regal Edwards Theaters. Now there is a chance that it could expand to a few more, but for now, take the list of locations after the jump as the only theaters you will be able to see the first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

So few true story-based films capture a descent percentage of the subject they are capturing. Even if it isn’t a true story, films like Whiplash don’t even come close to the pressures the students feel. So for a film like Foxcatcher to come out, it has to be on point. Bennett Miller’s latest directorial effort is a dark look into the world of the obsession to the a champion and the dangerous lengths some go through to stop being overshadowed by those greater than themselves. That dark and dismal atmosphere that surrounds the film only gets colder and colder as the film progresses. Thanks in part to powerful performances from Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, and a nearly irreconcilable Steve Carell, Foxcatcher is one of the this year’s best.

The original Dumb and Dumber was funny. Simple, but funny. And though the film was released in 1994, the comedy still resonates today. With a comedy as hilarious and successful as Dumb and Dumber, a sequel was bound to happen. But comedy sequels are difficult to write, it needs to keep the humor fresh and the characters interesting while not falling into the trap of repeating itself by using silly nods to the original. And maybe because Dumb and Dumber‘s potty humor – and the fact that I watched it when I was ten – made the film so funny. So we get older and the way film’s approach comedy changes. Unfortunately Dumb and Dumber To didn’t get the memo. The sequel lacks everything that made the first one so hilarious, and soils whatever charm the first one had as well. Hit the jump for the full review of Dumb and Dumber To. [Read more…]
Comedy sequels are hard to do, especially when there is a 20 year gap in between films. But for Dumb and Dumber To stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, they found reprising their roles for a sequel not that difficult. In the film, Harry (Daniels) believes that he is the father, and goes out on a search to find the daughter he never knew he had. Joining him is his loyal pal, Llyod (Carrey). Together they will go across the country, get themselves into trouble, and try to out prank each other.
We had a chance to sit down at the Dumb and Dumber To press conference to talk to them about the sequel, why it took so long for them to do one, working together, and more. [Read more…]
In the wake of the Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer leak, we have seen Marvel release the actual trailer ahead of schedule, release a slightly altered version of that same trailer during Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and now we are getting another trailer. We may be getting too much of a good thing too soon, but I am willing to bet that this trailer would not have been released if the first trailer was leaked.
The newest Age of Ultron trailer is a mix of the old and new. Though it plays out like the first trailer, the opening is slightly different, and there is of course new footage. But the same “No Strings On Me” song plays throughout the trailer, and it even ends on the same not. [Read more…]
