"I have a message for President Snow ..."
We are less than a month away from the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and today we get to see the final trailer released for the film. As you can see in the embed above, this final trailer features footage that we’ve seen before but it does include very exciting previously unseen footage as well. The Mockingjay will rise on November 21, are you ready?
So good. Just, soooo good.
The first trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron was supposed to air during last night’s broadcast of Marvel‘s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. but because the clip leaked a week early, the first trailer was officially released early as well. But, because Marvel Studios loves us so much, they aired a second trailer for Ultron during last night’s broadcast of S.H.I.E.L.D. which features new footage from the film (and footage already featured in the first trailer). The first part of this second trailer is just too perfect … it’s so Joss Whedon, it hurts … but in the best way possible. The look on Thor‘s face when his hammer moves a tiny bit when Captain America tries to pick it up is priceless. OMG, so good! Enjoy this trailer … I know you will.
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 »
The future is almost here
After the stunning success of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies which Disney based on the ride of the same name in Disneyland, the company has decided to produce a new film based on another part of Disneyland — the area known as Tomorrowland. Tomorrowland is described as a sci-fi fantasy film that … well, is all futuristic and stuff. The teaser above doesn’t really inform us much about the film’s plot but it sure does look interesting. As you can see in the embed above, a young girl is transported to a new place (presumably Tomorrowland) when she touches a special pin (which I have no doubt will be sold in pin stores at the Disney parks) … oh and the movie stars the newlywedded George Clooney. Have a look, see what you think. I’m intrigued by this teaser, are you?

Plus, see what's ahead on this season of 'AHS'
The new season of American Horror Story: Freak Show premiered on FX last night and it did NOT disappoint, not one bit. The premiere episode did a really good job of introducing most of the main characters and it provided us with a fun musical performance by Jessica Lange. Lange plays the freak show boss lady Elsa Mars and on last night’s ep, she performed a cover of the David Bowie song Life On Mars?. In case you missed it or just NEED to see it again, you can watch Elsa‘s performance in full above. I really enjoyed last night’s episode and am very anxious to watch the rest of the season unfold. Click below to watch a preview video for next week’s episode and the just-released trailer that previews the new season overall. More »
One of my new fave directors is about to blow up!
As you all know, I spend a good portion of my life falling in love with new indie movies, and sharing my faves with all of you. This year I had an amazing experience during the Tribeca Film Festival, and I’ve been meaning to tell you all about one film in particular that stuck with me. Michael D. Ratner directed this hilarious short called The 30 Year Old Bris, and I absolutely fell in love. Now, this is a big week for Ratner (who I’ve kept up with since I interviewed him during Tribeca) and his Emmy-winning production company One Big Ball Entertainment (you know you love that name) because they have officially signed with Relativity Sports and have some exciting new projects underway. Check out the teaser trailer above, and click inside for more deets on one of my new favorite directors!
And it's called 'Christian Mingle'
PITNB reader Rachel gave me the head’s up that Mean Girls actress Lacey Chabert is starring in a new movie called Christian Mingle which is based on the dating website Christian Mingle and my head almost exploded from all the weird awesomeness. First, I’m really quite impressed that someone came up with the idea to make a movie based on Christian Mingle. Second, I’m thrilled that Lacey won the lead role in this awesome-sounding movie. Honestly, the premise sounds more like a movie you’d see on the Hallmark Channel but still, I’m intrigued. Lacey‘s character is NOT a Christian but she’s so thirsty to find a man that she pretends to be a Christian on Christian Mingle and then meets and falls in love with a Christian guy named Christian (OK, I made that part up but wouldn’t this movie be better if his name was Christian?!) and she has to keep pretending to be a Christian to keep him until his suspicious mother ferrets out the LIE that she is NOT a Christian. My guess is that the guy, being the good Christian that he is, decides to love her anyways and Lacey‘s character becomes a Christian in the end and the couple proceed to mingle … in the Biblical way (but only after marriage). DOESN’T THAT SOUND LIKE A MOVIE YOU’D LIKE TO SEE? I’m not even kidding, I deffo plan to see this movie. It hits theaters this month so … who wants to come with?
Pixar has a new animated feature film coming our way next summer and they are already teasing us with what’s to come. Inside Out will tell the animated tale about the emotions that live inside a little girl’s head … which will likely turnout to be a huge hit at the box office. As you can see in the embed above, Pixar has enjoyed much success exploiting our emotional welfare with the movies they have released thus far. Can you imagine what they are going to do to us with a movie solely about emotions? Check out the teaser video above and then click below to read the official movie description for Pixar‘s Inside Out. More »

Yes, you will cry again
In early August, we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming Stephen Hawking biopic film The Theory of Everything and, as you may recall, that first trailer was a stunning look at what promises to be a powerfully emotional film. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for The Theory of Everything, which is just as wonderful as the first trailer. I made it about a minute into this new trailer until I felt the tears well up in my eyes but by the end, full blown crying. I’m just blown away by Eddie Redmayne‘s performance as Hawking IN JUST THESE TRAILERS. If the two trailers we’ve seen thus far are truly representative of the entire film, I predict awards glory come awards season. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. The Theory of Everything opens in theaters on November 7.
Go Go Go, Moses
Back in July we got our first look at the first trailer for the new Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film in the embed above. Because it’s a Ridley Scott film and because it stars Christian Bale as Moses, I’ll probably be seeing this movie in theaters. My fear is that the movie may be a snoorefest until Moses and God unleash the CGI plagues on the people of Egypt (kinda like how Titanic is boring as heck until the ship hits the ice berg and the CGI destruction of the ship gets underway). Check out the trailer and see if it looks like a movie that you would like to see. All I know is that if the parting of the Red Sea scene isn’t handled properly, I’m going to be really bummed out.
