If you’re like me and having been waiting to see a glimpse of Tim Burton’s drama about painters Walter and Margaret Keane, you’re in luck today. The Weinstein Company has released the first two images from Big Eyes, the film focuses on artists Margaret (Amy Adams) and Walter Keane (Christoph Waltz). The story goes that Walter became famous for paintings that Margaret was actually doing; she eventually became tired of that arrangement and the two took it to court for a heated battle.
It’s one of my Movies To See in 2014 simply because it’s different territory for Burton and the casting of Waltz and Adams is fantastic. The film also stars Krysten Ritter, Terrence Stamp, Jason Schwartzman, and Danny Huston.
Big Eyes opens December 25th 2014. Check out the images below:
We have the first trailer for Horrible Bosses 2, directed by Sean Anders (That’s My Boy) and starring returning funny men Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, and Jason Sudeikis. You would think after all the crazy they caused in the first movie, these three would lay low and stay out of trouble. Of course, that’s just not hilarious. Watch the great trailer below and be prepared to fall in love with scene stealing Jennifer Aniston again.
Here is the synopsis:
Fed up with answering to higher-ups, Nick, Dale and Kurt decide to become their own bosses by launching their own business. But a slick investor (Christoph Waltz) soon pulls the rug out from under them. Outplayed and desperate, and with no legal recourse, the three would-be entrepreneurs hatch a misguided plan to kidnap the investor’s adult son (Chris Pine) and ransom him to regain control of their company.
Horrible Bosses 2 opens on November 26, 2104. Hit the jump to watch the first trailer:
We Likes This Trailer for Terry Gilliam’s THE ZERO THEOREM Starring Christoph Waltz with no Eyebrows
The first trailer for Terry Gilliam’s upcoming film The Zero Theorem has been released and no surprise, it looks pretty interesting. The movie stars Christoph Waltz as Qohen Leth, a computer hacker who searches for the meaning of life while being distracted by “Management”, a shadowy figure from an Orwellian corporation. The film looks insane and Waltz seems to be putting in all his efforts, should be worth checking out. The Zero Theorem has no North American release date yet but we will keep you posted.
The film also stars Melanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, and Matt Damon. Check out the trailer after the synopsis below:
An eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence – or the lack thereof -once and for all. However, it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.
The video below might not be up for long (NBC doesn’t care to be liked) but it’s worth finding if you have to. Saturday Night Live had a parody this past weekend titled Djesus Uncrossed. You get it right?
That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed. Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture). Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.
The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:
Here is the final trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, there isn’t a lot of new footage you haven’t seen from the previous trailers, but it’s still fun to watch. I’ll be checking this movie out his holiday season if for no other reason than DiCaprio’s crazy performance.
The movie also stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
Here is a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained, it’s a bit more revealing than the past trailers as it sets up what’s going to happen at the beginning and middle of the movie. The cast looks to have had a lot of fun in their respective roles, especially Leonardo DiCaprio who looks and sounds like a maniac.
Adult supervision is required when Django Unchained opens on December 25th.

It’s finally here, our first look at Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, his first feature since Inglourious Basterds. It’s everything you would expect: bloody, funny, and accompanied by a great soundtrack. His films often divide people (many I know were annoyed by Basterds) but if you ask me, he still offers something completely different from what’s playing any day or year in the theater.
With his latest Django Unchained Christoph Waltz plays a bounty hunter out to kill a group of masked, slave-running brothers. The only man to have seen their faces is a slave named Django (Jamie Foxx), who agrees to help the bounty hunter in exchange for both his freedom, and the rescue of his wife from evil plantation owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio).
It’s great to see DiCaprio in a role that doesn’t require him to have lost a wife and cry (Inception, Shutter Island, Revolutionary Road), he’s going to steal the show I bet. The film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, M.C. Gainey, Walton Goggins, Garrett Dillahunt, Dennis Christopher, Gerald McRaney, Laura Cayouette, Don Johnson,and Tom Savini.
Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
The first trailer for Roman Polanski‘s Carnage is here for your viewing pleasure. It’s based on a play called “God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza and follows two sets of parents who come together to discuss a fight between their children. Things don’t go too well as you will see in the trailer which is filled with great humor and cringe worthy moments. Who knew parents would come off as ridiculous and childlike when it comes to defending their own?
The great cast includes of Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet.
Carnage will play at the Venice Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. It opens December 16th. Watch the trailer:
