The first Avenger is back. Marvel Comics just unleashed the first trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Chris Evans and his bulging biceps return for a second go round as the titular superhero. This time he’s joined by Scarlet Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Redford and Sebastian Stan who returns as the Winter Soldier. We also see the first glimpse of Anthony Mackie as the Falcon.
The sequel takes place after Steve Rogers helped save New York City in The Avengers. He’s now living in Washington, DC trying to adjust to modern life after being unearthed from a 70-year icy sleep. I know I’d be cranky ;)
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, The Winter Soldier also stars Emily VanCamp, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo and Hayley Atwell. It comes out April 4, 2014. I wasn’t completely in love with the first film, but this one looks really good. Check out the spankin’ new trailer below.
Ron Burgunday and his Channel 4 news team leave San Diego for the Big Apple in the highly-anticipated sequel. Being as sheltered as they are, the boys encounter and experience new things. Naturally, when they come across the gay anchor at GNN, they can’t quite tell the difference between homosexuals and vampires. It’s silly, ridiculous and exactly what you’d expect (and want) from Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.
Along with the Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Steve Carell, David Koechner and Christina Applegate reprise their roles. In addition, the film has rounded up practically everyone in Hollywood for either a cameo or small speaking role. Megan Good, Kristen Wiig, Harrison Ford, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, John C.Reilly, Jim Carrey, Kanye West, Sacha Baron Cohen, Liam Neeson and Kirsten Dunst are just a few of the names you’ll see in the sequel. Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues premieres worldwide on December 20, 2013. Check out the second trailer below.
Wes Anderson appears to have another winner on his hands. If you love any of the 44-year-old director’s previous works such as The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom, I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy The Grand Budapest Hotel. Not only is it gorgeously shot, it seems like a fun and entertaining ride. I get the vibe that it’s Wes’ own version of Clue. Love that movie starring Tim Curry.
To say the film boasts a stellar cast would be an understatement. Ralph Fiennes, F. Murray Abraham, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitel, Tom Wilkinson, Bill Murray and frequent collaborator Owen Wilson are just a few of the names appearing in the film.
The Grand Budapest Hotel recounts the adventures of Gustave H (Fiennes), a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa (introducing Tony Revolori), the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. There’s murder, revenge, romance, adventure and naturally Anderson’s quirky signature style of comedy. It hits theaters on March 7th, 2014. Check out the trailer below.
As someone who gets spooked quite easily, scary movies aren’t my thing. Minus those films released during the Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer era. I don’t see the point in shelling out cash only to watch the entire film looking through a tiny gap between my hands. Anytime I get coerced to visit a haunted house, I usually have my eyes shut tight and grab onto whichever friend’s hand is nearby extremely tight.
By far, the scary movies that freak me out the most are ones with religious undertones. Being raised Catholic, I’m terrified by films like The Exorcist, The Omen, The Exorcism of Emily Rose or anything in that vein. I guarantee you 100 percent you won’t find me on opening night of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones.
Christopher Landon, who wrote three of the previous Paranormal Activity films, returns with this new film which is being dubbed a “cousin” to the horror series and not an official spin-off. No official details about the plot of the movie have been released, but it is expected to include Catholic themes and primarily Latino cast. The film stars Richard Cabral, Carlos Pratts, David Fernandez Jr., Andrew Jacobs, and many more. It hits theaters January 3, 2014. Check out the trailer below.
Whether or not you’ve seen the original Endless Love movie, you’ve undoubtedly heard the classic ballad of the same name. The Lionel Richie and Diana Ross duet has played at practically every wedding since. It’s definitely one of my favorite sappy tracks to sing at karaoke. Obviously, I take Miss Ross’ parts :) In addition to its contribution to music history, the movie is also best known for marking Tom Cruise’s silver screen debut.
On Valentines Day 2014, Universal Pictures releases a remake of the 1981 original. Taking over the roles the star-crossed lovers Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt immortalized are Gabriella Wilde and Alex Pettyfer. Based on the recently-released trailer, expect lots of scenes featuring a barely-clothed Pettyfer. My kind of movie;) No wonder Alex is Lee Daniels’ latest male muse. Even though he’s not your conventional good-looking chap, there’s something about him that just screams ‘SEX.’ Check out the trailer below.
I never thought I’d see Zac Efron wearing a strap-on, but that very image just happened. The 25-year-old puts one on and accidentally dips it in the martini glass being held by his girlfriend’s parents. AWKWARD. That’s one cocktail I want on my next night out on the town.
That’s just one of the predicaments Efron and his buddies find themselves in for the raunchy comedy That Awkward Moment previously titled Are We Officially Dating? The studio just released the red band trailer and it highlights Zac in several states of undress. Thank you Focus Features. Dude shows off his bare butt as he pees horizontally. Why you ask? Let’s say just say it involves taking a hit of Viagra.
That Awkward Moment also features Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan as Efron’s BFFs. The film marks the first movie produced by Efron’s Ninjas Runnin’ Wild production company. It opens on January 31, 2014. Check out the risque trailer below.
Based on Brent Hartinger’s best-selling critically acclaimed novel, Geography Club is an upcoming teen comedy where a group of students of varying sexual orientation form a “geography club” to discuss their feelings and experiences.
One of the members is a closeted high school football player who’s engaged in a secret romance with his teammate. The closeted athletes are played by Pitch Perfect‘s Cameron Deane Stewart and 90210‘s Justin Deeley. Now, that’s one sexy huddle I’d like to get in the middle of.
Also starring in the film are Meaghan Jette Martin (Mean Girls 2), Allie Gonino (The Lying Game), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap), Marin Hinkle (Two and a Half Men), Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray) and Alex Newell (Glee). Geography Club will be theatrically released in the U.S. on November 15, 2013 by Breaking Glass Pictures. Check out the trailer below.
At first glance, the clip looks like a Funny or Die sketch. Then you realize it’s an actual full-length movie. I have no idea how they’re going to stretch it out for over an hour and a half. I’m sure this is one of those cases where all the funny bits are spoiled in the trailer.
The Starving Games is another cinematic spoof from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. I’m certain you’ve seen Date Movie, Meet The Spartans, Disaster Movie or Epic Movie. Their latest pokes fun at The Hunger Games where their heroine is Kantmiss Evershot played by Maiara Walsh (Switched At Birth). Taking on the Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson roles are Pretty Little Liars alums Brant Daugherty and Cody Allen Christian respectively.
Watch the trailer below which includes jabs at The Avengers, Oz the Great and Powerful, Harry Potter, Taylor Swift and much more. The Starving Games arrives in select theaters, VOD and Digital Download November 8th, 2013.
