Prepare Ye for More Swirling Camera Work
Terrence Malick‘s next sweeping masterpiece of cinematic artistry won’t be released here in the US until next April but it will open, first, in the UK in February … and so, the first trailer for the film has been released. Click the embed above to watch the UK trailer for To The Wonder and get your first look at Malick‘s latest work of art. It doesn’t really show us much (which is expected) but it deffo looks very Malicky … sweeping camera work and all. As I understand it, the film stars Ben Affleck as an environmental inspector person with Olga Kurylenko playing his wife and Rachel McAdams as his childhood sweetheart. Javier Bardem also stars in the film as a priest undergoing a test of faith … or something. At this point, it’s all still mysterious but we should expect nothing less from good ol’ Terrence. Check out the trailer for To The Wonder and see what you think.

'Here With Me'
The Killers have released a new music video for their current single Here With Me and as you can see above, it stars actress Winona Ryder as a creep mannequin.

ZZ Talks Growing Up 'Blues' With Pink Is The New Blog
Earlier this year I began falling in love with Compton rapper Kendrick Lamar, and I was lucky enough to have one of our music-savvy readers point me in the direction of a song Kendrick had with ZZ Ward. PITNBR Jess officially put me on to the bluesy, hip-hop, bone-chilling amazingness that is Cryin’ Wolf and voila! Another ZZ Ward fan was immediately born (in me, lol). Since her debut album Til The Casket Drops was released back in October, ZZ‘s been compared to artists like Joss Stone and Duffy, but I can safely say that I’ve never heard anything like her. But I get the comparisons. I mean, it’s sorta like Joss Stone had a baby girl with Adele, and that baby grew up and listened to a lot of Lauryn Hill, and Nas, and Odd Future, and Earth Wind and Fire. And then that baby girl made ‘Til The Casket Drops, lol. Anyway, I love this album and I still cannot believe I actually got to chat with such an amazing talent. Click inside to read our exclusive interview with an artist who truly is the next big thing– ZZ Ward!
A couple of weeks ago we got our first look at the first teaser trailer for the forthcoming sequel film Star Trek: Into Darkness. Today we get to feast our eyes on a second teaser trailer. This second trailer shows us a bit more plot-related stuff but it’s still not yet clear what the major conflict is. Check out the teaser above and get another taste of the new Star Trek film.
Keepin' It Indie
Okay. I really, really want to be excited about this movie. A while back I remember learning that Zoë Kravitz (daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, changed my life when she showed up in the I Know video) was getting into the movie biz and I was really looking forward to seeing her work. Yelling To The Sky isn’t her first film, but it caught my attention because she’s starring alongside Oscar-nominee Gabourey Sidibe (Precious). The problem with the movie is that Zoë’s character is lit’rally named Sweetness O’Hara (LMAO… sorry… but… I can’t) and it’s that sort of good-girl-gone-bad plot that we’ve seen before. Honestly, the trailer just didn’t really do it for me, but I’m still interested in seeing this one. The cast looks good and it’s hard for me to resist a dark indie drama :) Peep the trailer for more! Anyone else into it?
You can watch Yelling To The Sky on Amazon right now or on VOD.
"Are You Ready For This?"
I’m not gonna front– I kinda rolled my eyes when I saw that this trailer was out. A lot of people are over the Jersey Shore thing (what with the show being, you know, over) and we’ve seen sooo many amazing pictures of baby Lorenzo, I didn’t really see the point in another Snooki & JWoww season (although I know PITNBR Dezden will wholeheartedly disagree with me, lol). However, I watched the trailer… and I was kinda, sorta into it! I like that the focus really does seem to be on Snooki‘s new life as a Mom and JWoww‘s new life as a wannabe fiance (even if we already know she gets the ring in the end). Peep the video for more! Anybody else into it?
