Fri, 20 Jan 2017 02:08:00 -0800(image) Experimental music producer Flying Lotus has directed his first feature film titled Kuso, and it looks to be about as insane as you'd expect from an experimental music producer directing a feature film. Here's the official description, though it probably won't help you understand what you're seeing:
Broadcasting through a makeshift network of discarded televisions, Kuso is tangled up in the aftermath of Los Angeles' worst quake nightmare. Travel between screens and between aftershocks into the twisted lives of the survived.This feels like if Kentucky Fried Movie had a child with Adult Swim.

Although it would've been even better if they just focused on the content and removed the arbitrary ranking format. Not everything has to be a Top 10 List, especially something as subjective as color design.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 15:00:33 -0800(image) It appears that little girl in the firstLogan trailer wasn't just some random girl Patrick Stewart was trying to unload on Hugh Jackman. In a shocking turn of events, it turns out that innocent little girl *gasp* may in fact be a mutant. And one with little Wolverine girl claws at that. How adorably murderous.
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:17:40 -0800(image) The new Power Rangers trailer is here, and it finally reveals what the actual Power Rangers look like in action. They didn't shy away from the crazy costumes or giant robot battles at all. Plus this one didn't just reuse footage from an original Japanese version, so they can actually show you the actors' faces during fight scenes now. You also get to hear Bryan Cranston show how professional he is by saying "It's morphin' time!" in about as serious a voice as somebody can use when saying "It's morphin' time!"
Thu, 19 Jan 2017 05:44:34 -0800(image) The official Toy Story Facebook page uploaded this compilation of Easter eggs, pretty much confirming that every Pixar movie takes place in the same Universe. One really crazy Universe that has normal humans but also super humans, as well as talking animals, living toys, living cars, and a whole bunch of other stuff that if you actually encountered in real life would be a living nightmare.

One year after the existence of the afterlife is scientifically verified, millions around the world have ended their own lives in order to "get there". A man and woman fall in love while coming to terms with their own tragic pasts and the true nature of the afterlife.It's nice to see Jason Segel taking on more serious work, though for me he'll always be the guy in Forgetting Sarah Marshall that showed his naked wiener. It doesn't matter how many seasons of How I Met Your Mother you did or if you played David Foster Wallace, once you write a Dracula musical and show your penis, that's who you are for life.

Mon, 16 Jan 2017 16:23:47 -0800(image) The 2016 Japanese Godzilla remake Shin Godzilla (known in the States as Godzilla Resurgence) has been nominated for Best Picture in the Japanese Academy Awards. Not to be confused with the 2014 Gareth Edwards version of Godzilla, which was not nominated for Best Picture in any version of the Academy Awards, except for maybe the one put on by Gareth Edwards in his living room in 2014. And even then, Godzilla was probably still runner up.

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 20:26:55 -0800(image) For anybody who watched Luc Besson's Lucy and thought, "Hey, this would be a pretty good movie if they changed the main character to a boy and made Lucy a supporting character and also the story is way too believable so let's make it a bit more unrealistic," fear not, because Netflix heard you and made exactly that. Here's the trailer for iBoy, with a premise that's almost as dumb as the title. Emphasis added:
Tom is an average teenager whose world is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of his shattered smartphone embedded in his brain. He wakes from a coma to discover that returning to normal teenage life is impossible because he has developed a strange set of superpowers.
Wed, 11 Jan 2017 23:48:28 -0800(image) Either the film is called Untitled or they've really left it untitled, but A24 has such a great track record that at this point this is enough to get me excited. It feels like something Shane Carruth (of Primer and Upstream Color) would be involved with, though his upcoming Modern Ocean features recognizable actors that don't appear here. And if this actually is a trailer for his new film, you've probably understood as much from this as you would from watching the entire completed movie.
Tue, 10 Jan 2017 15:37:08 -0800(image) Because if you're going to have a picture of the Justice League lineup, it's definitely a good idea to leave out the most iconic character of the team and put the least known character smack dab in the middle. You want Superman in your Justice League? You must be a stupid idiot. Here, have Cyborg instead. You've done it again, DC Films.
Thu, 05 Jan 2017 15:27:44 -0800(image) It keeps getting pushed back, but here's the new trailer for Rings set for release in early February. Although calling it a trailer is being generous, since it's only a minute long. Also, if you don't know what to expect from a Rings movie by now I'd get yourself checked for Alzheimer's or some other mental condition. There's, uh, only so much you can do with the exact same premise.
Tue, 27 Dec 2016 05:31:03 -0800(image) I know this is supposed to be menacing, but Pennywise looks like he's just been caught masturbating in a sewer pipe. "This is my private time. Don't judge me."
Sun, 25 Dec 2016 01:03:03 -0800(image) Because it's Christmas and obviously everybody thinks of blood-thirsty unstoppable killing Xenomorphs on Christmas, 20th Century Fox released the official Alien: Covenant red band trailer today. With Ridley Scott back at the helm, it feels appropriately Alienish, hitting all the things we've come to expect from a proper Alien movie: weird slimy eggs, face-huggers, and pointy tails disemboweling humans. You know, the kind of stuff that brings families together this time of year to celebrate.
Fri, 23 Dec 2016 02:19:53 -0800(image) Costume/makeup designer Tom Woodruff Jr. posted a new image of Pennywise from the upcoming It remake on his Instagram last night. It's a clear departure from Tim Curry's costume from the original, going less for a traditional kid's clown and more of a carnival jester. A really creepy carnival jester that clearly likes to eat children and wouldn't pass as an employable clown at all. Tim Curry's version didn't appear threatening until he wanted to, whereas this version seems incapable of looking like it doesn't want to murder things.
Fri, 23 Dec 2016 02:03:31 -0800(image) Entertainment Weekly has a new Wonder Woman production still depicting Gal Gadot attempting to steal the Amazon's mythical sword, the "god killer." More importantly though, the image shows the Amazon's shoddy craftsmanship when it comes to making skirts. I mean, c'mon, that thing's only like 70% done.
Thu, 22 Dec 2016 14:43:46 -0800(image) The Auralnauts continue their trend of turning Kylo Ren into probably the best YouTube celebrity with this review of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. There are some pretty major spoilers, so I'd avoid this if you haven't already seen the movie. And I'd do the opposite of that if you have seen the movie. Also, why would you watch reviews before seeing the movie? It'd be like asking your parents to describe their Christmas gift to you in great detail before they even gave it to you.
Thu, 22 Dec 2016 06:43:18 -0800(image) Contrary to all logic and reason, The Emoji Movie wasn't a hoax and here's the official teaser trailer. They even presented it vertically, in case the sheer concept of the movie wasn't offensive enough. Is there a suicide emoji? Because that seems like the only appropriate response to this.
Thu, 22 Dec 2016 06:41:32 -0800(image) The original Mortal Kombat still might be the best video game movie and it definitely has the best video game movie theme song. Actually, it probably has the best theme song period, which may or may not explain why I 100% will be playing it at my wedding.
Tue, 20 Dec 2016 22:45:07 -0800(image) Reddit user CrtureBlckMacaroons purchased a physical CD copy of the Rogue One soundtrack and apparently in the liner notes, Michael Giacchino included alternate punny titles for all of the tracks on the album. Here they are in word format: 1. A Krennic Condition 2. Jyn and Scare It 3. Jyncarcerated 4. Going to See Saw 5. That New Death Star Smell 6. Jedha Call Saw 7. When Ambush Comes to Shove 8. Erso Facto 9. Go Do, That Eadu, That You Do, So Well 10. Have a Choke and a Smile 11. Erso in Vain 12. Takes One to Rouge One 13. World's Worst Vaction Destination 14. Scarif Tactics 15. Bazed and Confused 16. Switch Hunt 17. Transmission Impossible 18. Live and Let Jedi Michael Giacchino is kind of known for his punny titles, so it's nice to see he maintained his dad-level sense of humor despite working on something as massive as Star Wars. [via]
Tue, 20 Dec 2016 15:18:25 -0800(image) Either as a brilliant marketing move or a legitimate screw up by Universal Pictures, the IMAX version of The Mummy trailer was uploaded with a broken audio track. It'd be fair if you thought it was an edited parody video, since it really is that ridiculous, but this is real and untouched. The studio has been pulling the videos as quickly as they've been reuploaded, so try to watch it before it gets taken down again. Make sure you watch with sound, otherwise it's indistinguishable from the original trailer.
Tue, 20 Dec 2016 15:02:40 -0800(image) Despite what logic and reason might suggest, The CW actually is releasing a TV show based on Archie Comics, but with none of the fun and lightness of the source material. I don't know about you, but when I think Archie Comics, I definitely think of murder and mystery and basically Silence of the Lambs but with teenagers. It's like the very definition of Archie. Anyways, check out the teaser trailer for Riverdale after the jump.
Tue, 20 Dec 2016 12:38:29 -0800(image) A new trailer for Gore Verbinski's A Cure for Wellness was released today, and the look and tone feel very much like Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island. This trailer seems a bit more spoilery than the first one, so it might be worth avoiding if that's something you care about. But if you care more about seeing Dane DeHaan drink out of a dirty glass, then boy will this trailer not disappoint.
