Coldly Flashy Trailer: The Huntsman: Winter’s War!

Huntsman

‘If It’s the Snow White tale you’re looking for, discover the story that came before,’ says the narrator in the new trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War – the prequel to Snow white and the Huntsman.

Considering how little we wanted a follow-up to the first film, I have to say that this new trailer is more dark fun than I expected. Check it out after the jump. The Huntsman: Winter’s War opens on April 22nd.

Spooky Trailer: Crimson Peak!

Crimson Peak is Guillermo Del Toro’s passion project – the one he has worked on for years (as many as his H.P. Lovecraft adaptation? Probably). It’s a classic ghost story set in a big old mansion in which there are areas that ‘are not safe.’

The cast – which is pretty awesome – includes Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and Charlie Hunnam. Legendary Pictures has released a new trailer that you can see immediately following the jump.

The Color of Time – A Student Film That Feels Like It!

Color of Time

The Color of Time was made by the members of a class James Franco taught at NYU – a peculiar mix of poetry and biography based on the poems by Pulitzer Prize winner C.K. Williams. The film’s content is a collection of vignettes composed of memories, poetry and Williams’ struggle to write new material as he prepares for an appearance to read his work.

The reason I say that The Color of Time feels like a student film is not because of any lack of polish, but because it looks and feels free of the need to be commercial; to fit into a specific niche. Franco’s students have clearly been taught well when it comes to both technique and thinking for themselves.

2015 Critics’ Choice Awards – More Perceptive Than The Oscars®?

Birdman

Some Oscar® wrongs were at least partially (and in two cases, totally) righted at the 2015 Critics’ Choice Awards. Selma, for example, at least got more nominations; The LEGO Movie won Best Animated Feature, and Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) won for Score (while being not being considered at all for that award by Oscar®).

Birdman wound up with seven awards – including two for Michael Keaton (Best Actor in a Comedy and Best Actor); Boyhood got four (Best Director, Best Young Actor, Supporting Actress and Best Picture), and The Grand Budapest Hotel got three (Best Comedy, Best Art Direction, Best Costume Design).

This year’s Louis XIII Genius Award went to Ron Howard; the Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Kevin Costner and the very first MVP Award (for the most prodigious body of work over the last year) went to Jessica Chastain.

Host Michael Stahan (Live with Kelly and Michael) struggled a bit with his opening monologue, but got stronger as the night went on. The complete list of winners follow the jump.

Interstellar Is Stellar Not Interstellar!

INTERSTELLAR

Christopher Nolan’s new epic, Interstellar, is a magnificent achievement technically but falls a bit short in terms of story and character development. It’s an intriguing mix of science fact and fiction that attempts to turn a potential end of the world scenario with a phoenix-like rise from the ashes story. It spends a lot of time thinking and paying homage to Kubrick, but falls short with plot points that don’t add up and maybe one-and-a-half characters that are at all developed.

Matthew McConaughey shines as Cooper, an engineer turned farmer by necessity and Mackenzie Foy shines as his intelligent, earnest, determined young daughter, Murph. Otherwise, there are no characters we can really care about – which makes all the cool science stuff less relatable.
