The cast and direction of Non-Stop are first-rate. They are infinitely better than the material they’re working with.

Richard Curtis is responsible for such films as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Love Actually – romantic dramedies that detail burgeoning relationships that work, as often as not, because the people in them are flawed. For About Time, Curtis adds a very limited form of time travel to the mix in a low key, unsurprisingly affecting movie that will provoke a bit of laughter, a few tears and the feeling of almost two hours well spent.
There’s a trailer for 47 Ronin, the martial arts/fantasy starring Keanu Reeves and Rinko Kikuchi. It looks… BIG!
Check it out after the jump. 47 Ronin will be in theaters on Christmas Day.
The sequel to one of the oddest comic book satires (from the satirical superhero comic of the same name), Kick-Ass 2 remains as faithful to the details of the comic as the original, but wildly misses on the tone. It’s a case of a well-directed film that features some bravura performances but loses its way in attempting to mix the inspired grotesqueries of the comic with a tone of gritty reality that turns it into a descent into over-the-top action/superhero cliché.
Edgar Wright’s The World’s End might the final entry in the so-called Cornetto Trilogy, but there’s a lot more than that going on in it. Wright and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost talk about some of the movie’s themes in a new featurette, Not What It Used To Be (as in ‘The future…’).
Check it out after the jump. The World’s End premieres on August 23rd.
At Comic-Con 2013, Universal unveiled an extended red band trailer for Kick-Ass 2 that was just nuts. You can check it out after the jump – but remember, red band! NSFW!
Kick-Ass 2 premieres on august 16, 2013.
Universal has released four posters for Keanu Reeves’ 47 Ronin (above and after the jump).
