The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I is nearing its release date, and we’ve seen two trailers in the past few months. The film had a small presence at Comic-Con this year, choosing to forgo grand Hall H spectacle and trade it in for something smaller and more humble. Since then it’s been a mopey marketing campaign to reflect the dark tones of the final two films of the trilogy. Now we are getting one final trailer before the film makes its debut, and if you are a fan of the books, well, then there will probably be some tears in your eyes.

President Snow has declared war on the hostiles of Panem, and is using those close to Katniss to bring the rebellion down. Will she be swayed and turn her back on those who need her most? Hit the jump to see the final trailer of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I. [Read more...]

Ridley Scott is back at it again with his large gasping sweeping scenic shots, exciting action sequences, and massive epic feel, with Exodus: Gods and Kings.

By the looks of things, this adaptation of the Book of Exodus isn’t something you learned back in Sunday School or comes close to looking like The Ten Commandments starring Charleston Heston, which airs every Easter Weekend.

2014 films have been a bit underwhelming. But with October just around the corner, you can expect to see more and more Oscar bait, which will hopefully pick up the slack made by 3/4s of the year. Now we are getting our first look at Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Inherent Vice, an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s novel of the same name.

The film stars Joaquin Phoenix as private detective Larry “Doc Sportello” (Joaquin Phoenix) is hired by a former lover to investigate the kidnapping of her current boyfriend by his wife and her boyfriend. Inherent Vice doesn’t look as dark and brooding as some of his previous efforts, in fact it looks more goofy and light-hearted while staying true to his style and tone.
