"All the guys in my barbershop quartet are dead ..."
Yesterday we got our first look at the second movie poster released for the upcoming superhero sequel film Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Today we get to see the just-released first trailer for the film. To be honest, after watching the trailer three times myself, I can’t say that I’m particularly wowed by what I’m seeing here. It looks like the movie will have a bit of political crap for the Capt. to sort thru and then, of course, he has to do battle with the Russian villain the Winter Soldier … all while trying to not let Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow steal all of his thunder. I guess the Captain America films will be heavy on the story, which is good … I guess … but I really hope this new film is also able to bring the action. Check out the trailer above and see what you think. Does this look like a superhero sequel that you might like to see?
Due out in January
The Paranormal Activity horror film franchise continues to roll on with the forthcoming release of the 5th installment of the series. Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones will hit theaters in January (the first of the PA films to be released after Hallowe’en) and will pick up where Paranormal Activity 4 left off. To be honest, the movies haven’t all been great but I’ve been — at the very least — marginally entertained by most of them. This time around, the main character is a Latino male — which is awesome, I gotta say. Click the embed above to get your first look at Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and see if it catches your fancy. I know I’ll prolly pony up to see this flick when it hits theaters in January … will you?
"Just get horizontal"
Zac Efron has got a new movie coming to theaters in January that I think some of you might be interested in seeing. In the just-released red band trailer for the film That Awkward Moment, Zac gets completely nekkid. I mean, duh, that’s the obvious draw but once you get past the nekkid part of the trailer, you see that the movie actually looks kind of funny. Believe me, I know it’s very difficult to get past the notion of a nekkid Zac Efron to think of anything else regarding this movie (like plot, co-stars, etc.) but … trust me, the movie looks funny. It probably won’t help matters if I reveal that Efron also gets his, ahem, “cock out” in the trailer so … why don’t we just click below, watch the NSFW red band trailer and see what all the hubbub is about.

Behold, Game Of Bones
The announcement of porn parodies never cease to amaze me … even tho I have never actually watched a single one, I can’t help but get a kick out of formal announcements of new parody films. First we got the Buffy the Vampire Slayer parody, then the Man of Steel parody … I guess it was only a matter of time before Game of Thrones got it’s own spoof. The parody produced by Wood Rocket is titled Game of Bones, obvs, and it features (among other things) an Iron Throne made out of dildos cuz … duh. Click thru the gallery to see the cast of porn actors who will appear in Game of Bones (including Lindsay Lohan‘s Canyons co-star James Deen as Jon Snow). Then click below to watch a SFW and hilariously ridiculous preview trailer. More »

You can't keep a good monster down
A new supernatural action flick is on the way that tells the tale of Victor Frankenstein‘s monster as he might exist today if he had never died as is assumed at the end of the Mary Shelley novel. As you may recall, the monster vows to kill himself at the end of the book and the reader assumes that he does so. I, Frankenstein picks up many years after the book leaves off and reveals that the monster did not kill himself and, instead, chose a life of solitude … that is, until he is caught between a battle involving two supernatural forces. I mean, makes sense. I’m not quite sure how I feel about this but the film stars Aaron Eckhart and I do love his work so … we’ll see. Click the embed above to check out the trailer. Does this look like a film that you would spend your hard-earned money on?

'Do You Want To See The Girl Who Lives Behind The Aura?'
Along with the release of her ARTPOP album, Lady Gaga is preparing to make her acting debut in the upcoming movie Machete Kills. We saw the first trailer a while back, and today we get another look at the film, plus the added bonus of hearing a new Gaga track. Aura is the featured song, and the lyrics seem appropriate for Lady Gaga‘s character– The Chameleon. Peep the video above for more!
"Dragon fire and ruin ..."
Back in June we got to check out the first trailer released for the upcoming sequel film The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and while that first trailer clocked in at just over 2 minutes long, I guess it has formally been classified as a teaser video … because the just-released second trailer (which you can watch in full in the embed above) has been labeled the “official main trailer” … whatever that means. No matter, the first trailer gave us our first look at the dragon Smaug and this second, “main”, trailer gives us our first chance at hearing Smaug speak. AND, cuz it’s really important, the infamous Ring gets a pretty sweet cameo in this new trailer as well. Check it all out above and see what you think. Personally, I think I prefer this second trailer over the first one. This is a trailer that makes me want to see this new film. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be released in theaters on December 13.
The Marvel Comics series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. debuted on ABC last week to massive ratings and the show is hoping to attract an even larger audience this week by reportedly featuring a much-beloved Marvel Comics character in a cameo appearance. The Marvel Comics movies are famous for featuring extra scenes at the end of theatrical movies that show after the credits roll. ABC and Marvel Comics are telling fans to stay tuned until after the credits of tonight’s episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to see an extra scene … which will likely feature a cameo appearance by Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the leader of The Avengers. You will note that the eagle in the S.H.I.E.L.D. logo is wearing an eye patch like Fury‘s in this promo video about tonight’s episode so it’s likely we will get a Nick Fury cameo. Watch the commercial above and then set your DVRs to record Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. until AFTER the credits so you don’t miss a thing :)
Meet 'Rebel without a Cause' star Sal Mineo
Back in 2011, actor/filmmaker James Franco (yes, James Franco) debuted a biopic film titled Sal at the Venice Film Festival that tells the story of Rebel without a Cause star Sal Mineo‘s last day alive. Mineo, as you may know, won acclaim and an Academy Award nomination for his work in Rebel (alongside James Dean and Natalie Wood) and a second nomination for his work in Exodus but watched his career suffer when he publicly came out as a gay man in the 1960′s. In 1976, Mineo‘s career was starting to take off again when he was fatally stabbed in West Hollywood, CA at the age of 37. Franco‘s biopic focuses on Mineo‘s last day alive and can be previewed in the trailer embedded above. Sal will be available on VOD (Video On Demand) and iTunes starting October 22 and will open in select theaters on November 1. Check out the trailer and see what you think.

Thus far, FX has released a new teaser video for the forthcoming third season of American Horror Story: Coven almost on a daily basis … but today, they’ve upped their game with the release of 2 new teaser videos. The clip featured in the embed above is titled Voodoo. As you can see from the voodoo doll in the screenshot, the clip is pretty straightforward. Click below to see a second teaser clip that introduces us to a woman named Laveau. This second clip ends up giving us a little more than we might have expected. Enjoy. More »
