The TV Guide
Last night I met up with Tamar, Ollie and Caleb at the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood for a showing in the Cineramadome of the new Wes Anderson film The Grand Budapest Hotel. To be honest, it’s been many years since I’ve truly enjoyed a Wes Anderson film but with each new film that he releases, I hope to feel the same joy that I felt (and continue to feel) when I watch his earlier films, like The Royal Tenenbaums. Invariably, tho, I’ve come to learn that with each new film that Anderson puts out, there is less and less emotion and feeling and more and more technical smoke and mirrors. The Grand Budapest Hotel is a Wes Anderson film to the nth degree … and for me, that is not necessarily a plus. More »
"... you're looking at a world war"
On Super Bowl Sunday, Fox unleashed an EXPLOSIVE teaser video for the forthcoming new season of 24: Live Another Day, set to debut in early May. Today we get to feast our eyes on a just-released new promo video that gives us a taste of what’s to come, plotwise, from the new season of 24. President James Heller (William Devane) is threatened with assassination in London and long wolf/ex-CTU agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) takes it upon himself to spring into action to protect the president — while all the president’s men view Jack as a threat. Yep, sounds about right for a typical day in the life of our beloved Jack Bauer. This is a great new promo. We are less than 2 months away from the premiere of 24: Live Another Day, are you pumped yet? The new season of 24 premieres on May 5.
Remember last weekend when John Travolta inexplicably introduced Idina Menzel as “Adele Dazim” during the Academy Awards telecast on Sunday night? Well, as you may know, that embarrassing faux pas turned into an instant craze on the Internet that lasted for a couple of days. Disney is now trying to capitalize a bit more on Adele Dazim‘s popularity by featuring “her” in a new promo video for the new film Muppets Most Wanted. Click the video above to see what Adele Dazim (or Adele Dazeem, depending on the spelling of this fictional person’s name) has to say about Muppets Most Wanted. If the movie is good enough for “her”, it should be good enough for the rest of us :)

The Princess Diary
Back in 2012 we learned that Nicole Kidman had signed on to portray Princess Grace of Monaco in a planned biopic film about her life. There was some talk that the project might be shelved altogether but it was announced a few weeks ago that Grace of Monaco will have its world premiere at the Cannes International Film Festival this year. Ahead of its premiere at Cannes, we get to see today the just-released first trailer for the film. Personally, I’m having a hard time seeing anyone but Nicole Kidman in this trailer but I’m hopeful that the film will do more to show us that she can become Princess Grace. Check out the trailer above to get your first look at Grace of Monaco. Does this biopic film look like something you’d like to see for yourself?
Early last month we got to see the pretty epic first full-length trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Transformers: Age of Extinction and as you may recall, THAT TRAILER FEATURES AUTOBOT LEADER OPTIMUS PRIME WIELDING A SWORD WHILE RIDING ATOP DINOBOT LEADER GRIMLOCK. Sorry, I’m having a hard time NOT TYPING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE THE DINOBOTS REALLY GET ME AMPED UP. As much as I really DO NOT LIKE OR TRUST Michael Bay, I have to admit … this second trailer looks pretty damn sweet … er, that is, if you focus solely on the Transformers … especially THE DINOBOTS. OMG, I have to stop yelling, click the embed above to watch this new Transformers trailer and see what you think. Personally, I hate myself for being so excited about this movie but THERE’S REALLY NOTHING THAT I CAN DO AT THIS POINT. Ugh.
"People have this image of me that it is chaos"
A few days ago we got to check out a short teaser video that previewed the forthcoming premiere of Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-series Lindsay that will debut on Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN network this coming Sunday night. Today we get to check out the first full-length trailer released for the series. As you can see in the video embedded above, this trailer lays out the things that folks will be most interested in seeing when this series debuts — 1.) Lindsay talking about her attempted sobriety, 2.) Lindsay‘s involvement with the paparazzi, 3.) Lindsay‘s estrangement from her father Michael Lohan, 4.) Lindsay messing up again and 5.) Oprah getting pissed off at Lindsay for messing up again. Folks, Oprah comes right out and tells Lindsay to “cut the bullshit”. That’s good TV right there. Check out the 2+ minute trailer above and prepare yourselves, Lindsay is coming to a TV set near you in just a few days’ time. Are you ready for this?

"Time to sabotage"
Last week we got to see the first promo images for Lindsay Lohan‘s new docu-series Lindsay, which will premiere on the OWN network next Sunday night, and today we get to see the first actual footage from the show. A short video teaser aired on OWN this weekend, which you can watch in the video embedded above. This teaser clip is short but it’s worth a watch if you’re at all interested in this show. I’ll be watching, er, for work purposes … yeah, that’s it … will you be watching, too?

Directed by Hype Williams
Kanye West updated his official website with a video trailer for an upcoming concert film that will be releases in movie theaters. You may recall that we learned last week that author Bret Easton Ellis has penned a movie script for Kanye West but this particular film is something different. Kanye‘s site doesn’t give much information other than revealing Hype Williams as the film’s director. Click the embed above to get your first look at Yeezus: The Film and stay tuned … we will likely be hearing more about this Kanye West movie in the coming days and weeks.
A few days ago we got a very good first look at the new Green Goblin as he will appear in the upcoming superhero sequel film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Today we get to get a pretty good repeat look at one of the other villains that will torment Peter Parker/Spider-Man in this year’s sequel film — none other than Electro. The video embedded above is an international trailer released outside of the US and it features a lot of the footage that we’ve already seen in earlier trailers … but there are new scenes that I think are worth your time. I can’t say that I’m totally on board with this new version of Electro just yet but I’m willing to reserve judgement until we see him in action when the film opens in May.
"They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy"
