Earlier this week we got our first look at Johnny Depp in character as the Big, Bad Wolf as he will appear in the forthcoming Disney film Into The Woods and today we get to see actual footage from the film that features actual music! A new promo featurette titled The Story has been released that features stars of the film talking about the movie … yada yada yada … and at the 2:30 mark, we hear Meryl Streep sing. This is our first really good look at the film, much more impressive (I think) than the teaser trailer we saw last summer. Enjoy.
"We are in the hopeful phase I think."
After Jennifer Hudson spilled the beans earlier this month that serious discussion is taking place concerning a third Sex and the City movie, rumors about the project have been flying all over the place. Stars Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis teased about the rumors on Twitter and SJP even went so far to capitalize on the SaTC 3 rumors to help promote her line of shoes (promotion that has gotten her into a bit of trouble, actually). Today, Kristin Davis will appear on The Meredith Vieiera Show to talk a TINY bit about the movie rumors … and while she doesn’t really say much, the fact that she is even commenting on SaTC 3 is very PROMISING :D Check out the video clip above and then tune in to watch today’s episode of The Meredith Vieiera Show to watch Kristin‘s interview in its entirety.
An unauthorized leak resulted in the official release
The first trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron wasn’t due for official release until next week during the next episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D but earlier today, a low quality version of the trailer leaked online. Marvel immediately sprang into action and tried to get the trailer yanked offline. They realized the cat was already out of the bag so they decided to officially release the trailer early, which you can watch in full above. As far as movie trailers go, this one is effing bad ass. This first look at Ultron is very promising. Have a look above, then click below to see the just released teaser poster for the film as well. More »

I recently heard that Steve McQueen cast another unknown actor to star in his upcoming television series, and immediately got excited for that guy. I mean, LUPITA NYONG’O. Clearly, McQueen has an eye for raw talent. And, since 12 Years a Slave, Nyong’o has been moving on to big things, including an upcoming role in Star Wars: Episode VII. We’ve been getting fun little details about the production here and there, and now Nyong’o is sharing some really cute pics on Instagram. Click inside for more!
SPOILER ALERT WARNING
Filming production continues on the Michigan set of the upcoming sequel film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and today we learn of a MAJOR casting spoiler leak that has been revealed by an extra who broke the confidentiality agreement they signed to appear in the film. Because extras get paid very little money, they are sometimes swayed by the promise of money elsewhere if they divulge secrets from movie sets. For the most part, major spoilers about the overall plot of Dawn of Justice have been kept under wraps but because the movie is still 1 1/2 years away from release, there is plenty of opportunities for spoiler details to come out. Speaking on the condition of anonymity, an extra has revealed to a Detroit-area TV station that a major, previously unannounced, character from the DC Comics universe will be included in Dawn of Justice. We already know that Wonder Woman will be featured in the movie and it’s very likely that Aquaman and The Flash may be featured as well … so there are a LOT of DC characters on tap to appear in the movie. But this new information about another major DC Comics character appearing in the movie is so significant that I fell compelled to pass along the info with all y’all. If you are unconcerned about spoilers and you want to know who the character is, please proceed below. More »
Back in October of 2012, we heard that Sam Raimi was reportedly signing on to direct a reboot of the 1982 horror film Poltergeist and while Raimi is NOT directing the the film, we do learn today that the reboot/sequel is coming to theaters next summer. Gil Keegan is directing this remake of Poltergeist which the MPAA has given a PG-13 rating. This is interesting, I think, because the original Poltergeist movie was instrumental in the creation of the PG-13 rating in the first place. Ready or not, here comes a new incarnation of Poltergeist. More »

The TV Guide
All month long, the Arclight movie theaters here in the LA area are screening classic horror films on the big screen and, apparently, the 1992 camp classic Buffy the Vampire Slayer fits the bill. When I found out that BtVS was being screened, I knew I had to see it with my BFF Darion. Darion and I met at a screening of the musical episode Once More With Feeling from the Buffy TV series so I thought it would be fun for the two of us to see the original movie together on the big screen.

You really can't go home again
Late last month we got to hear Yellow Flicker Beat, the song that Lorde wrote for the soundtrack to the upcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and today we get to hear that song featured in a new preview trailer for the film. In the video embedded above, we see protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) paying a visit to her home District 12 to survey the damage done by the Capitol. The imagery is stark, the music is powerful and the scene is really exciting in that I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THIS MOVIE! If you enjoyed the full trailer that was released in September, I think you’ll enjoy this new video trailer as well. Enjoy.
