'Life Is Very Long'
Way back in October we heard about the film adaptation of August: Osage County, and today we get our first look. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play (and Tony Award-winning production), the movie stars Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor, Sam Shepard, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, and yeah. Everyone who is awesome, everywhere, lol. I haven’t read the play yet, but I understand the trailer gives off a slightly more playful feeling than the original, which is a heavily dark comedy. Still, I’m excited for this one. Peep the video for more!
JGL's Directorial Debut Looks Friggen Awesome!
I’m not gonna lie– I was nervous for this one y’all. When actors get behind the camera and start directing, it doesn’t always pan out. We heard about Joseph Gordon-Levitt‘s directrial debut Don Jon a while back, and while I was excited, I was also wondering if JGL would be able to pull it off. Well, judging by this first trailer, I think we can expect some very good things. JGL plays a Jersey Shore-type porn addict who starts to fall for a girl (Scarlett Johansson) and, naturally, things get complicated from there. Peep the video for more! Apparently, there’s also a little hint at a movie-within-a-movie, featuring Channing Tatum and Anne Hathaway– awesome.
Don Jon hits theatres on October 18th.
"The fate of your planet rests in your hands"
We are less than a month away from the release of Superman: Man of Steel but today we get one last movie trailer to check out before the film hits theaters on June 14. As you may recall, we’ve previously seen sweeping, emotional trailers for Man of Steel but the just-released newest trailer is all action. Check out the embed above and get a taste for just how action-packed Man of Steel will be. We have mere weeks left to go before Superman flies into movie theaters … are you ready? Cuz after watching this trailer (a few times) I am SO damn ready.
More and Faster
Back in March we got our first look at the first official trailer for The Wolverine and today we get to see official trailer #2. As you can see in this new trailer via the embed above, Wolverine is reunited with one of his old X-Men compatriots … a very special compatriot, actually. I’m not always very excited about stand alone movies like this that focus on one character (outside of the rest of the films that feature more than one member of X-Men) but I like what I see from this movie so far. The Wolverine opens in theaters on July 26 … and I think I’ll be there.

'Blood Ties' Also Stars Clive Owen, Billy Crudup & Zoe Saldana
PITNBr Natalea, get ready to freak the freak out with me! As we learned when we saw those first photos from the film, all of our favorite people are involved in this new movie– Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts and Guillaume Canet are teaming up along with Clive Owens, Mila Kunis, Zoe Saldana, Billy Crudup and more people than I can name. Just watch the trailer! Blood Ties looks gritty, gangsta, and hella intense. I’m sooo in!

Brick Still Can't Get It Together
We recently heard the best news ever– Kanye West has joined the cast of Anchorman: The Legend Continues. I mean, c’mon. This is clearly going to be the greatest thing to hit the cinema since… Rust And Bone?! LMAO, but seriously. We have a new mini-trailer to check out and although Yeezy isn’t in it, it’s another great way to get us excited for the upcoming sequel. Peep the video above and watch Steve Carrell (AKA Brick) struggle with his catchphrase, yet again.
The TV Guide
Last night I met up with Emma and Josh for a little dinner/movie date after a few days of missed opportunities. Because the pair of them have an uncanny knack for picking excellent movies that most people never hear about, I decided to follow their lead and agree to see the new Sarah Polley documentary film Stories We Tell. As usual, they selected an excellent film for us to watch, even if the “doc” has a few flaws. All in all, I enjoyed the film but mostly, I enjoyed my night out with my fun BFFs. More »

Jean-Pierre Jeunet Is Back At It!
EEEEeeeekkkk! Jean-Pierre Jeunet (acclaimed director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement) has completed his next film and I am CrAaaazy-psyched about it… even though my girl Audrey Tautou is not in it, lol. The Young & Prodigious Spivet is an English-language film based on Reif Larsen‘s The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet; it follows the story of a young inventor who leaves home when he’s invited to the Smithsonian. This first trailer is a little cutesy for me (which is a critique that some folks gave Amélie), but I’m still excited to see it in theatres. This will also be Jeunet‘s first 3D film, and it’s starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, and Dominique Pinon. Peep the video for more!
"Someone really wanted our initials to spell out S.H.I.E.L.D.'
ABC presented their upfront presentations to advertisers today and showed off their collection of new TV shows, scheduled to debut this Fall. Among the new shows on display today was the much-anticipated Joss Whedon series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. As you may recall, we got our first look at this new series yesterday with the release of a super short 30-second trailer. Today, ABC has released the first full-length trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that features almost 3 minutes of footage from the show. The writing, as you will quickly learn, is brilliantly Whedonesque … and Clark Gregg, as Agent Phil Coulson, is just perfection. Check out the just-released first trailer for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and get excited, y’all. The countdown to the coming TV season is now underway!
"It's time for humans to bite back"
In late March we got our first tease of the forthcoming 6th season of True Blood on HBO but today we get to see the first full length trailer for the season. As you can see above, all Hell is breaking loose in the coming season and the supernatural beings (both vampires and werewolves) find themselves being hunted by the humans … and Bill pretending to be god … as the action leads to a series end?! HMMM. As the temperature warms up, we’ve grown accustomed to the arrival of another fun (but oftentimes ridiculous) season of True Blood. Season 6 premieres on June 16.
