The world could have used a great CG reimagining of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream. What a shame this isn’t it.
Still there are some good moments to be had from Strange Magic – Alan Cumming rocking out as the Bog King and Evan Rachel Ward flittering through several musical styles as Princess Marianne of the Fairy Kingdom come to mind.

Disney’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day may be based on a children’s novel, but it’s a classic and looks like great fun for all ages. The movie’s first trailer made me laugh more than I expected and reinforced a concept I’ve long held dear – bad luck is contagious!
The movie stars Steve Carell, Jennifer Garner, Dylan Minnette, Megan Mullally, Jennifer Coolidge, Kerris Dorsey and Ed Oxenbould. Check it out after the jump. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day careens into theaters on October 10th.

There’s not a lot you really need to know about Need For Speed except that what little CGI there might be in the movie, none of it is in the stuntwork. The racing sequences are outstanding – and practical (which is where the ‘old school’ comes in). Oh, and there’s actually a plot and a lot of good actors doing good work.

Disney/Marvel and Netflix have confirmed that four new Marvel Series are coming to Netflix and will be filming in New York City. Gov. Cuomo and Walt Disney Co. CEO Robert Iger will hold a joint press conference today for the big announcement. So what are we thinking – Daredevil, Punisher, Black Panther and who would the fourth be? I think the first three would be almost a lock although they may be a little too similar to each other. I’d like to see a Black Widow/Hawkeye show.
Follow the jump for one of the strangest Marvel trailers you will ever see (quite possibly including Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man). James Gunn rocks! I’m in.
Guardians of the Galaxy rockets (sorry!) into theaters August 1st.

The illusion of characters driving in an action movie is greatly enhanced when they can do all or at least some of their own driving. In the case of Need For Speed, we get a chance to follow Dominic Cooper through his pre-shoot day at action driving school. If this acting thing doesn’t work out for him…
Check out the video after the jump. Need For Speed rolls into theaters on March 14th.

Since, for budgetary reasons it would make no sense to be damaging Bugattis, Keonigseggs or other expensive cars, the team behind the cars for Need For Speed built replicas of these supercars that would still give them the performance requirements of a movie that incorporates ‘speed’ into its title. Check out a new video that gives a glimpse into the world of making faux supercars – and a feature on those cars – after the jump.

After attending Disney’s excellent D23 presentation of upcoming films, Saving Mr. Banks quickly became one of the few films that I really looked forward to seeing. It has all the elements that I love in movies – heart, comedy, colorful cinematography and it is about the creative process. That twenty-minute preview and surprise ending with the great Richard Sherman, Jason Schwartzman, and B.J. Novak doing a live performance of Let’s Fly A Kite is one the highlights of my year. The movie met and exceeded my expectations in every way.
