Check out this trailer for Interstellar that was shown at Comic-Con this year – it’s pretty amazing. Interstellar star Matthew McConaughey and director Christopher Nolan showed up to Hall H last weekend to show off this new trailer and discuss the project. It’s being called Nolan’s “most ambitious” film yet and was influenced by most influenced by 2001, Star Wars, and Blade Runner; not bad company to have in the back of your mind while creating a potential masterpiece.

A coin for anyone who can tell us what’s going on! The movie also stars Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, Casey Affleck, Matt Damon, Michael Caine, Ellen Burstyn, John Lithgow, and Topher Grace.

Interstellar opens on November 7th, 2014, watch the trailer below:

The New Boardwalk Empire Teaser Makes Me Sad; The End is Near

July 30th, 2014 by Graham McMorrow

The final season of Boardwalk Empire starts on September 7th, and now an “Invitation to the Set” video is here to bring us some idea of where we’re going this season. There is a lot more color this season as they mention, and some old grudges still to settle. We also take a look back into Nucky’s childhood, which is an interesting way to end the show rather than start it years ago.

Creator Terence Winter talks about what fans should expect over the final eight episodes below:

THE HATEFUL EIGHT Poster Sets a 2015 Release for Quentin Tarantino’s Next Film

July 30th, 2014 by Graham McMorrow

h8-poster

So here is what we know now when it comes to The Hateful Eight: it will be Quentin Tarantino’s next film (his 8th says the poster) and we have the first official poster below for you to see. It’s going to be a bloody Western! So it confirms a 2015 release (likely in December) as well as the fact that Tarantino will shoot it in “Super CinemaScope”.

The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

The cast announced so far includes Bruce Dern, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Madsen, Kurt Russell, James Remar, Amber Tamblyn, Walton Goggins, and Zoe Bell.

The Trailer and Poster for NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB

July 30th, 2014 by Graham McMorrow

Shawn Levy’s Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, starring Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Dan Stevens, Rebel Wilson and Ben Kingsley has its first trailer for you to watch below. If you enjoyed the first two films then you will no doubt be looking forward to this one; it looks bigger and better that’s for sure. I thought they missed a few steps with the first sequel so I expect if this is the last outing, they will give it their all.

Larry and museum exhibits including Pharaoh Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher), Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck), Roman centurion Octavius (Steve Coogan) and Jedediah (Owen Wilson) wind up at the British Museum’s famed Egyptian wing to solve the deadly mystery.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb opens in theaters on December 19, 2014.

IMAX announced today that Robert Zemeckis’ Academy Award Best Picture-winning Forrest Gump starring Tom Hanks will get an exclusive one-week IMAX re-release, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the film’s original theatrical release in 1994. The film will be digitally re-mastered for the IMAX format and released starting September 5, 2014.

Forrest Gump will also receive a special Diamond Luxe Blu-ray release (what those are) on September 30, 2014.

I don’t know if I’ll catch this in theaters, although IMAX would be great. It’s just I have the great DVD and Blu-ray that I’ve watched at least once a year since I got them. You can check out my FORREST GUMP: Twenty Years Later retrospective full of fun trivia and quotes.

Book Review: The Art of the Films Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes

The Art of the Films Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Leading up to the release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Titan Books released an all new hardcover titled The Art of The Films Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. My first impression when getting my hands on this book was how substantial it is. For those who have seen the film (read my review for more information) Dawn of the Planet of the Apes has fantastic visuals. This book does a fantastic job of highlighting this. Page by page it takes you up close with behind the scenes shots and stills straight from the movies. Continue Reading

Cut To The Chase Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of The Planet of The Apes

Cut To The Chase Reviews from COF are spoiler free reviews ‘abridged for your pleasure’. Quick, concise, and sometimes entertaining opinions on the go!

line

For starters, my expectations for Rise of the Planet of the Apes were fairly low. It looked like a fun origin tale, but nothing to write home about – I certainly ate my words on that one. Rise was fun, fresh – and unlike Graham, I don’t have total disdain for James Franco and thought he did a fairly good job portraying Caesar’s teacher/father/friend. Continue Reading

Comic-Con: Red Band Trailer for Frank Miller’s SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

The trailer below was previously shown at the Hall H panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, Dimension Films has now released the extended Red Band trailer for Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

I have just enough enthusiasm for this movie to get me to go see it; I loved the first one but feel they waited far too long to bring the gang back and from what I’m seeing, they offer little reward for the wait other than the same old. Still, it looks great and should be fun; I wonder though how many people will actually go see it and fear this could be a bomb waiting to happen. I hope I’m wrong.

Watch it below:

A New Trailer For Daniel Radcliffe’s HORNS

July 28th, 2014 by Kevin Fraser

Horns

Remember all those people who protested Harry Potter because they thought it was promoting witchcraft and the dark arts?  Well wait until they get a load of his new film!  Daniel Radcliffe stars as Ig Perrish in this adaptation of the Joe Hill novel.  Ig has been suspected of raping and murdering his girlfriend so he grows horns, as you do.

I hadn’t been sure what to expect from this film but the more I see of it, the more I’m looking forward to it.  It’s been fun watching Radcliffe grow and try new things as he tries to shed his Harry Potter image.  With each film I feel he’s getting better and better, and that’s saying a lot for someone who used to be the link weak in his own series.
