It is the Avengers: Age of Ultron clip that debuted at SDCC (you can read our coverage here) featuring our heroes trying to lift Thor’s Hammer.

It has been a while since we’ve seen the Funny or Die’s public access interview show Between To Ferns, in fact the last time we saw an episode, host Zach Galifianakis was interviewing President Barrack Obama. The sketch features the comedian as a host asking celebrities and even the President of the United States some rather rude, vulgar, and even insulting questions. His latest victim is Brad Pitt, star of Fury – or is it Furry? As usual the guest plays as himself, but this time Pitt can barley tolerate Galifianakis’ questions, and goes to great lengths to restrain himself from resorting to physical violence. What’s more, the interview is interrupted by an impromptu stand-up act from a very well-known comedian. Won’t spoil who it is, but you’ll just hit the jump to see who it is. [Read more...]

Of the trailers we have seen promoting Big Hero 6, the most recent one has shown the most footage of the masked villain, Yokai. With Disney’s latest animated film making yet another press tour over at the New York Comic-Con, the studio was kind enough to show audiences brand new footage of the film in the form of a sizzle reel. We have already covered a few tidbits from the film and talked to directors Don Hall (Winnie the Pooh) and Chris Williams (Bolt).
The new sizzle reel gives us a better look at the characters and their newly acquired abilities. But you have to admit, the marketing team is going to make a big push on selling Baymax, the robot is just too cute without the suit. Hit the jump to check out the Big Hero 6 sizzle reel. [Read more...]
There are those who love Michael Bay‘s Transformers film franchise, then there are those who just hate it. While all four films have been a box office smash, there is no doubt that people unanimously hate the film for being vapid headache inducing action films.

So Transformers being the Michael Bay film that it is, begs to be ripped to shreds by films fans to love to tear them apart. Thankfully we don’t have to wait any longer as Screen Junkies have released the honest trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction. Hit the jump to check it out. [Read more...]
AMC has been showing very brief glimpses of Better Call Saul, their Breaking Bad spinoff, through very tiny teasers. The series is currently under development, and set to debut in February of next year. But AMC’s latest move may be it’s biggest promotion for the series.

It’s that time of the year again. People are trying to scare one another in the spirit of Halloween. This also means we are going to get scores of scary movies being released in the coming weeks. And of course that makes for a perfect marketing campaign. As we have seen for films like Carrie and The Devil’s Due, Thinkmodo is in the business of pranking people by scaring them in unsuspecting places like a coffee shop or just on a sidewalk. So they have released a video for their latest prank, which will help promote Platinum Dunes’ upcoming film, Ouija. [Read more...]
No film no matter how massively popular, critically acclaimed, or profitable, is safe from comedic parodies. Last week, SNL spoofed Marvel Studios’ success with a number of parody trailers based on Guardians of the Galaxy. Now they are doing it again, but this time for the teen sob story hit The Faults In Our Stars.
But just doing another spoof of the trailer but with random terminal illnesses would be some what of a repetitive theme, so Sarah Silverman and Taran Killam did one with the focused on more current affairs: the Ebola virus outbreak. It only seems fitting to call the trailer The Faults In Our Stars 2: The Ebola In Our Everything. The trailer is almost a mirror image of the film it is parodying, only with that humorous SNL touch and a shift in the illness. It’s actually quite funny.
Hit the jump to check out the parody trailer for The Faults In Our Stars 2: The Ebola In Our Everything. [Read more...]
In 2012, Nightwing aficionados and amateur filmmakers Danny Shepherd and Jeremy Le produced a short film called Batman: Nightwing vs. Red Hood that was inspired by Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The fan film went viral. To date, it’s earned over one million views on YouTube, despite its low budget. The success prompted the duo to imagine what they could do with more resources, so they took to Kickstarter to fund a sequel. Nine hundred backers and $34,000 later, Nightwing: The Series has been produced, and the first episode premiered online this week. Watch it after the jump.
