Six weeks! Six weeks until the world gets to see Channing Tatum (and Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer) bumping and grinding in nothin’ but a pair of tight skivvies on the big screen. I really hope “Magic Mike” — opening June 29 — is playing at the IMAX theater. I need to see this hotness on as large a screen as possible. Entertainment Weekly just released a whole mess of photos from their current issue’s cover shoot with the cast and, I swear, I almost started tossing dollar bills at my screen and whooping. Click on to see some of my faves and then check out the rest at EW.com.
It happened to one of us, ladies. Let’s let her tell it: “A handsome man with tousled hair and an aversion to commitment showed up at my door, suitcase in hand, seeking shelter from the storm. (Okay, he’d called beforehand, but still.) We had a two-day romance — he played music, I wore a dress, we talked for hours. Then he disappeared from my life on a six-a.m. flight, and that was that. It was the emotional and quirky hit-it-and-quit-it.”
“My pop-culture education to date had not prepared me for this scenario. Yes, I felt a sense of loss at his leaving, but I also felt a sense of spiritual wholeness. Why wasn’t I moping around waiting for him to come back to me, like in a romantic-comedy post-breakup pre-finale montage? Why did I feel, of all things, better connected to my art?”
We came to a conclusion so bizarre that it had to be true: he’d Zooey Deschaneled her, hard. He was a manic pixie dream guy. Keep reading »
Fledgling filmmaker Benh Zeitlen’s new film “Beasts of the Southern Wild” garnered tons of acclaim at the recent Sundance Film Festival and was an official selection at Cannes. Even so, that doesn’t necessarily guarantee that it’ll be a compelling, watchable film. But the first trailer, featuring breakout child star Quvenzhane Wallace, makes it look pretty damn good. The film follows Wallace as Hushpuppy on an odyssey to survive a Katrina-like storm, ward off mystical “auroch” creatures, and find his missing mother.
2012 is the summer of the superheroes! The newest trailer for ”The Amazing Spider-Man” was just released, and it’s got us tingling more than Peter Parker’s Spidey Sense!
This reboot, starring Andrew Garfield, is definitely darker and more action-packed than the previous versions. While the origin story is largely the same, there’s a new villain (Curt Connors/The Lizard, played by Rhys Ifans) and love interest (Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone). This film’s plot will focus on Peter uncovering his father’s mysterious ties with Curt and both characters’ transformations into their super-powered alter egos. Check out the thrilling trailer here…
My favorite thing about the trailer for “Harmless,” a Christian propaganda/horror movie about the evils of porn, is that this fictional family is being terrorized by a box of porn. Now, let’s just pretend that I actually thought porn was metaphorically evil enough to make a horror film about — I would be far more terrified by the seemingly limitless array of pornography available via the internet, not a little ol’ box of VHS tapes. You know? This isn’t the ’80s!
It may be the final Batman film from Christopher Nolan, but he’s clearly going out with a bang rather than a whimper with “The Dark Knight Rises.” Judging by the absolutely ingenious new full-length trailer that Warner Bros. released on Monday night, the third installment may just be the best of the series.
Scheduled to hit theaters on July 20, “The Dark Knight Rises” is one of the summer’s most-anticipated movies, so it’s no surprise that the new trailer is already generating a ton of buzz. In classic Christopher Nolan form, the trailer is the perfect promotion—just enough of a tease without relying on the increasingly popular studio method of showing the whole damn film in two minutes. It leaves us feeling excited about the film, but still dying to know more. Read more…
