10 Cloverfield Lane Debuts Chilling First Trailer

In: Donovan, Movies

Cloverfield frightened moviegoers to a stellar $170 million global take back in 2008. Eight years later, a sequel is finally making its way into theaters. Or as producer JJ Abrams likes to call it instead, “a blood relative of Cloverfield.” Whatever that means.

“The majority of the movie takes place in an underground cellar, and revolves around a young woman who wakes up in the cellar after a severe car accident and fears she has been abducted. Her captor, a doomsday prepper, tells her he saved her life and that there has been a terrible chemical attack that has left the outside uninhabitable. She does not know what to believe and as tensions rise, she decides she must escape, regardless of the terrors that await outside,” according to Variety

10 Cloverfield Lane, actually had the working title of The Cellar. No one in the industry knew it was a sequel until the trailer dropped. “The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of Cloverfield. The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible,” Abrams said in a statement to Collider.

The film stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and John Gallagher, Jr. 10 Cloverfield Lane hits theaters on March 11. Check out the chilling first trailer below.

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens mainly focused on the new cast. Fans, including myself, were hoping to see the original cast reprise their roles. J.J. Abrams finally delivered today.

There’s still no Luke or Leia in this new footage, but we get to see Harrison Ford as Han Solo, reuniting with Chewbacca. Definitely one of the most beloved pairings of all-time. He says “Chewie … We’re home,” right before showing off his signature crooked smile at the end of the clip.

The more I see, the more I’m stoked to see the seventh installment of the Star Wars franchise. The special effects look sick. Check out the second teaser trailer below. Star Wars: The Force Awakens storms into theaters on December 18.

If spoilers aren’t your thing, definitely do not proceed ahead. This one is a major doozy.

It’s been rumored that Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the darkest film yet seen in the long-running space saga. Based on this new report from MakingStarWars.net, it would appear JJ Abrams delivers on fans speculation. A ‘most trusted’ source in production reveals a major character will die in Episode 7. Find out who below.

MAJOR SPOILER after the jump

Star Trek Into Darkness director J.J. Abrams has been receiving a bit of flack for his seemingly gratuitous scene of actress Alice Eve in her underwear in the film. The 46-year-old understands the criticism he’s been receiving and takes responsibility saying he “didn’t quite edit the scene in the right way.”

During a stop on Conan, Abrams proves the charges of sexism are unwarranted. He’s an equal opportunity exploiter. J.J. brought along a deleted scene from the film to share. It shows Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch) showering. A “shower of evil” as Abrams jokes. Dayum. It’s short and sweet, but extremely sexy. It’s even hotter when Conan changes the background music.

The full scene better be part of the DVD/Blu-Ray extras. He can’t tease us like that without giving up all the goods. Check out his interview with Conan below. The good parts begin at the 1:30 mark. Enjoy.

This isn’t your daddy’s Star Trek. It’s one from a galaxy far, far away. Oops, wrong sci-fi movie franchise 😉 In all seriousness though, Star Trek Into Darkness looks pretty dang awesome. That’s saying a lot considering I didn’t even go gaga for the first one.

Earlier this week, Paramount released the first official poster for the Star Trek sequel. It featured a metropolis in shambles with a figure who’s back is towards us. Now, we know who the figure is and what happened to destroy the city which looks a lot like a futuristic San Francisco. J.J. Abrams just released the first teaser video for the hotly-anticipated film and it’s FAN-FRIGGIN-TASTIC.

There’s so much action jam-packed in a minute, my heart is still racing from watching it. We see Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) and McCoy (Karl Urban) maneuvering themselves through some sort of red cornstalk labyrinth. Uhura (Zoe Saldana) looking hot, while Spock (Zachary Quinto) is armed and dangerous. Not to mention all the screaming and ass-kicking taking place. Check out the trailer below.

Forget the holiday season, this is my favorite time of the year. It’s time for the big networks to unveil their plans for the 2012-13 television season. As Fall arrives, it brings the promise of the next big thing. All the networks hope they have the season’s new “IT” show.

NBC among all of them definitely needs the most help. Based on their presentation, they definitely have a couple of potential hits and surefire bombs. Speaking of which, before we chat about the new shows, let’s quickly officially say good-bye to this season’s canceled shows. Gone are Chuck (final season), Free Agents, The Playboy Club, Prime Suspect, The Firm, Best Friends Forever, Bent, Are You There Chelsea?, Awake and Harry’s Law. Can’t say that I’ll miss any of them. In fact, I probably would’ve axed more shows. Remember when NBC was “must-see television“? Me neither. Seems like a lifetime ago.

For Fall 2012, NBC is hoping laughs will bring in the viewers. Not only did they renew most of their under-performing sitcoms, but the network also ordered seven new comedies. With the genre making a comeback this past season, it’s definitely a sound judgement. On the flip side, I think airing “The Voice” in both the Fall and Spring will hurt the franchise. Fox has always held off from doing that with “American Idol” and it’s worked. Also a horrible decision by the peacock network is waiting til midseason to air the second season of “Smash“. Hopefully, this doesn’t kill the show.

Without further ado, let’s get to the brand new shows. Based on first impression, I’m predicting “The New Normal“, “Revolution“, “Chicago Fire” and “1600 Penn” as NBC’s greatest chances for success. Watch the clips below and see if you agree with my choices.

After the success of the first reboot of Star Trek, director and producer J. J. Abrams promised a second film would be in the works. After Leonard Nimoy made a very prominent featured cameo in the first flick, it was a major question whether or not William Shatner would be next in line to make a cameo in the sequel. However, that is looking like it’s not the case.

Even though the film focuses around the development of Captain Kirk through actor Chris Pine, the actor who played him for the entire television series still won’t get his cameo. According to some reports, Shatner was a little peeved that he wasn’t asked to be a part of the original reboot so the rumor started to flutter that J. J. would maybe give him a shot. However, Will revealed at Calgary’s Comic Expo that even though he was become an acquaintance of J. J. Abrams lately, he will not be in Star Trek 2. And even though Leonard did play a hug role in the first film, he also will not be jumping on board for round 2.

It is looking like the rest of the main cast will return including Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto who played a young Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, John Chu as Sulu and Zoe Saldana as Uhura. So what’s the plot looking like for the sequel?

5 Movies You Should See This Summer

In: Kyle, Movies

It’s that time of year again! We’ve been teased with trailers for months and now they’re finally here. Summer movie season is upon us! With so many great movies coming out this season, it was VERY difficult narrowing it down to just 5. I’m a huge movie buff and a sucker for sequels, but I wanted these movies to be fresh and epic. Enjoy!

1. The Tree of Life – May 27

When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I was hooked! I love trailers that manage to tell you a story without giving too much away. Starring Brad Pitt, Sean Penn and Jessica Chastain, this drama about a 1950s family is sure to leave audiences in awe. The film focuses on the life of Jack, who is one of three sons in the film parented by the surprisingly intimidating Brad Pitt. Everything seams fine and dandy in the beginning until Jake’s world begins to unravel. It’s hard to speak of a movie when the trailer speaks so much for itself. We’re used to seeing Pitt as a fun, lovable character, but this looks completely different!  Where does Sean Penn come in, you ask? He plays the adult version of Jack, now dealing with his troubled past. I have a feeling that The Tree of Life not going to disappoint. Check out the trailer below!
