Everything's comin' up Matty
We have a new trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming movie, Interstellar, which remains one of the most highly-anticipated films of the year. And since Matthew McConaughey is getting to be more and more of a big deal (seriously, everyone was obsessing over him at the Emmys), the idea of him saving the world doesn’t seem all that far off. Interstellar also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine, Ellen Burstyn, David Oyelowo, Casey Affleck, and Wes Bentley. Peep the trailer for more!
She's singing that 'Kill Bill' song and I LOVE IT!!!
Let me tell you—I was all prepared to roll my eyes at yet another Beyoncé/Jay Z whatever, but this is different. I don’t know who had the brilliant idea for Bey to sing Bang Bang (which I will always and forever associate with Kill Bill), but it opens up the trailer and it’s perfection. The rest of this just looks super-dope. Not all of us can be Trent, so we’ll have to settle for the HBO special. I’m personally psyched to experience On The Run from my home. Will you be tuning in?
Jess VS. Jess
It’s amazing what you can get done when you can see your flatscreen from your kitchen. I binge-watched The New Girl while washing dishes and making lunches over the course of maybe a week, and it was glorious. So I was excited to learn that a sneak peek had been released, featuring Jessica Biel. The cast of New Girl hit up the Let’s Be Cops premiere (the movie stars Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans), and in between interviews with
Winston Lamorne Morris we get a little sneak peek. Peep the video for more!
The 4 new films he left behind
The late Robin Williams has always been a prolific actor and, as such, it should come as no surprise that he has left behind a batch of new films that will be released in the coming months. Earlier this year, it was reported that Williams had wrapped filming production of the sequel film Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb which is due for release this coming holiday season (you can watch the first trailer for Night at the Museum above). Additionally, Robin had successfully filmed movies titled Merry Friggin’ Christmas (due out in early November), the British film Absolutely Anything (due out next year) and a drama titled Boulevard (which debuted at the TriBeca Film Festival earlier this year but has yet to be picked up by a studio for theatrical release). But while these 4 films will eventually make their way to movie theaters, I have to believe that plans for the Mrs. Doubtfire sequel that was reported last April will be cancelled. I cannot imagine that anyone will think it’s a good idea to move forward with a Mrs. Doubtfire 2 without Robin Williams in the lead role. I hope it is of some comfort to fans that there are still a few opportunities to see Robin in new movie projects in the coming months. For me, personally, I will hang on to and cherish the body of work that he has left behind. Through his new films and old, Robin Williams will remain with us forever.
You will love these. I promise.
I know I usually wait ’til the end of the year to round up my favorite indie films, but I gotta get you guys in the theatres to see these bad boys! I’ve gotten the chance to cover interviews for a few films at Paste Magazine over the last couple of months, and I’ve been exposed to some fantastic directors and talent. Right now, I know everyone the world over is flocking to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy, but in between the blockbusters I hope you all make time for some small films with big themes. The more people fill the seats, the more we can send a message that these movies are important—because they are! Y’all know I exaggerate, but I am not kidding when I saw I got my life changed in some small way with each of these stories. Click inside for more!
"Be prepared to be captivated, exhilarated, mystified"
I’d heard whisperings about this miniseries a while back, and I’m excited to see that it’s almost here. It’s a scientific fact that people of color—specifically men of color—lose their minds over magic tricks, so I am really looking forward to seeing Adrien Brody as Houdini (LOL). We have a first trailer, and the story really does look spectacular. Peep the video for more! Kristen Connolly (House of Cards) also stars as Houdini’s assistant-turned-wife

She's Private Amy Cole, a guard at Guantanamo Bay
We’d heard about this project a little while back and now the first trailer for Kristen Stewart‘s Camp X-Ray is here. The film debuted to positive reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, and I think it looks to tell a compelling story. Stewart plays Private Amy Cole, an American soldier at Guantanamo Bay. She meets a prisoner… er detainee who starts to change the way she sees her position and the side she’s on. It’s not an unfamiliar story, but I don’t think we’ve had a lot of big movies about what’s going on at Guantanamo Bay. I’m definitely no expert, so if nothing else, I hope director Pete Sattler gets people talking.
Camp X-Ray hits theaters on October 17.
"We're all in, brother"
Thus far we’ve seen fun promo videos for the forthcoming 7th and final season of Sons of Anarchy on FX. Today, AT LONG LAST, we finally get to see a trailer that features actual footage from the show. Sons teamed up with IMDB for the exclusive trailer above that shows actual scenes from the new season of Sons of Anarchy. The show returns on September 9th with a 90-minute episode and as you can see above, the action is going to come at us hard and very heavy. OMG. I cannot WAIT. AHHH!!!
