Ain't nobody got time for this
Swedish filmmaker Anders Weberg is readying the release of the longest film in history which will be preceded by promo trailers, the first of which we get to see today. Click the embed above to watch the 72-minute short teaser for Weberg‘s Ambiancé … but watch it while you can because it will be taken offline forever in a few weeks. In 2016, he will release the second trailer which will be 440-minutes long. The final trailer, clocking in at 4320-minutes, will be released in 2018 and the full 43,200-minute film will be released on December 31, 2020 (it will run continuously for the entire month of January 2021). So, if you’ve got some time, take a look.

Based on the memoir by Cheryl Strayed
Last July we learned that Reese Witherspoon acquired the rights to adapt the best-selling memoir Wild by Cheryl Strayed into a feature film. Today, we get our first look at the just-released first trailer for the film. In February, I finally read the book for myself and really enjoyed it. As I read, I could envision in my head how a film adaptation might look. This trailer gives us our actual first taste of the final product. Click the embed above to see this first trailer for Wild and see what you think. Wild will open in theaters in December.

Live-Action is the new Animation
In April we learned that Disney is planning a live-action version of The Jungle Book, in May we learned that Disney is releasing a live-action movie version of Cinderella next year and in June we learned that plans are in the works for a live-action movie version of Beauty and the Beast. Today we learn that Disney has also decided to move forward with the live-action adaptation of another of their classic animated films — Dumbo! Because of the huge box office success of Maleficent (which is a live-action adaptation of Sleeping Beauty), it would appear that Disney is hoping to strike while the iron is hot with this live-action movie thing so … get ready for a version of Dumbo that will star a “live-action” baby elephant.

This is Capitol TV
Last month we got to see the first teaser video for the forthcoming sequel film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, which will open in theaters at the end of this year. Today we get to see the just-released second teaser video for the film. Like the first teaser, this new video is presented as an announcement from President Snow via Capitol TV but unlike the first teaser, this new video gets interrupted by the rebels hiding out in District 13. The video is just under a minute long but you must watch all the way to the end. Then, click below to see the new poster art that was released in conjunction with this new video teaser. More »
Thou Shalt Watch this Trailer
Last week we got to see a batch of promo photos from the upcoming Ridley Scott Biblical epic film Exodus: Gods and Kings, which stars Christian Bale as Moses. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the film. If you know the story of Moses (or the Charleton Heston film The 10 Commandments) then many of the scenes in this trailer will look very familiar to you. If not, then you are in for a very large, very dramatic story when this film is released in theaters. I like what I see in this first trailer but my initial reaction was that the scenes don’t look big enough. A story of this magnitude has to be larger than life … and perhaps watching the trailer on You Tube just won’t cut it. Even still, I’m encouraged that this movie will turn out well when it is shown on the big screen — in 3D. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. Exodus: Gods and Kings hits theaters in December.
'Girl', at work
Yesterday we got to check out the second trailer for David Fincher‘s new movie Gone Girl which features original music written for the film by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Just a short time ago, TR posted a photo on Facebook that was snapped during the recording of the Gone Girl score, taken on the 20th Century Fox studio lot. Reznor and Nine Inch Nails have been really bizzy on tour over seas for the past few months but he is now back in LA working hard on the Gone Girl score. See for yourselves below. More »
The folks who handle the promo for the upcoming Marvel Comics superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy are not content with the release of mere standard movie trailers so they’ve upped the game with the release of this new extended trailer for the film. Clocking in at 2 1/2 minutes, this extended trailer for Guardians is pretty darn cool. It features a lot of new footage AND an actual scene from the film. Amazingly, this trailer shows us a lot about the movie without giving too much away. This movie is going to rule, I’m telling you. Check out this extended trailer and see what you think.
Thus far we saw official(ly kinda boring) photos HERE and HERE from the set of the upcoming sequel film Jurassic World but today, courtesy of Scified, we get our first look at the thing that we all really want to see from the movie set … the dinosaurs! Thankfully, Jurassic World will feature both animatronic and CGI dinosaurs (very much like the original Jurassic Park movie did) and, as such, we get to check out a neat leaked photo that shows us what the Velociraptor dinosaurs will look like in Jurassic World. Have a look below, won’t you? More »

Building a Mystery
Back in April we got our first look at the first trailer for David Fincher‘s new film Gone Girl. Today we get to check out the just-released second trailer for the film. As you can see above, we get a much better sense for the movie overall from this trailer … and we get to hear the first bit of music created for the film by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. It looks good and mysterious, I think. Have a look, see what you think. Gone Girl hits theaters on October 3.
