Mix reunion of BFFs from college with Bridesmaids – add a dash of Weekend at Bernie’s and you get Rough Night – in which best buds from college reunite for one’s wedding, but the celebratory night out in Vegas goes horribly wrong.
Ghost in the Shell is based on a Japanese manga by Masamune Shirow and a classic anime by Mamoru Oshii – both of which deal with the questions of what constitutes identity and whether humanity remains when the line between human and machine disappears.
Rupert Sanders’ live-action Ghost in the Shell touches on these ideas more I expected it would and is a cracking good science fiction-action movie as well.
Fans of Ghost in the Shell will be given a chance to take an early look at the live action adaptation of the classic anime – in IMAX® – on February 28th.
Paramount Pictures, Dreamworks Pictures and IMAX present a one-night-only event featuring an exclusive first look at stunning film footage exclusively in IMAX® theatres across 14 North American cities with select international markets and dates to follow.
Attendees will receive a limited edition poster and have the opportunity to capture their experience in a film-centric experiential photo booth — Becoming the Major.
The new trailer for Paramount’s Ghost in the Machine has a lot of new footage. It looks like pretty dazzling stuff, with the Major’s confrontations with a cyber-terrorist suggesting that there’s more to her story than she remembers. Also, lots of cool action!
Following the release of ten 10-15 second snippets of video from Ghost in the Shell, Paramount Pictures has released a full trailer – introduced by Scarlett Johansson.
Accusations of whitewashing have been at least partially addressed by named the main character simply The Major – but otherwise, the trailer definitely seems to be a reasonably faithful adaptation of the of the original anime feature.
The trailer suggests both the sumptuously technological world of the anime and the films that have been influenced by the anime – films like The Matrix and Ex Machina – as well as the films that influenced the anime (like Blade Runner).
The trailer follows the break. Feel free to just jump right in. Ghost in the Shell will be in theaters on March 31st, 2017.
The Coen Brothers’ love of movies – especially, in this case, movies of the fifties – has never been in greater display than in Hail, Caesar. As the film follows Capitol Films’ Head of Physical Production, Eddie Mannix, through twenty-fours of doing his job (he fixes problems that the studio’s actors create) we are taken through four very clever pastiches.
The problem with Hail, Caesar is that, if you’re not an avid fan of films from 65 years ago, you will probably miss out on over half the movie.
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson and Jeremy Renner – the core cast of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron – will guest on Jimmy Kimmell Live on Monday, April 13th (11:35pm/10:35C).
For Jimmy Kimmell Live: Avengers Assembled, the cast will talk about the new film (with as few spoilers as possible) and present world premiere clips of exclusive new footage. For more, follow the jump.
