Our first Facebook movie game, ClusterFlick, plays off that old "six degrees of separation" theory — you know, the one that has a certain Kevin at the center of the Hollywood universe. It's easy to play, but not so easy to win. The goal is to use the major cast of movies to get from Point A to Point B in the smallest number of moves.

So far, the trailers and preview clips that have been released to promote director Neil Burger's (The Illusionist) upcoming sci-fi thriller, Limitless, have pretty much just focused on the rags-to-riches story of how struggling writer Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper) turned his life around by ingesting a wonder-drug called NZT given to him by his friend, Vernon (Johnny Whitworth). Now, three new preview clips have been released that show just how serious the ramifications of such a turnaround can be as Morra's newfound wealth attracts the attention of some creepy characters with very sinister intentions. watch the new preview clips >> Posted 03.09.11 by BrentJS
Two new preview clips from director Neil Burger's (The Illusionist) upcoming sci-fi thriller, Limitless, have surfaced online. Based on Alan Glynn's techno-thriller novel The Dark Fields, the movie centers around an experimental new designer drug called NZT that allows the user to access the untapped potential of the human mind. When down-and-out writer Eddie Morra's (Bradley Cooper) scurrilous friend offers him the wonder drug, Eddie thinks it might help jump-start his creative juices so that he can break through his writer's block and finish his novel. The drug does so much more than that, however, and soon Eddie has become stronger, smarter and more confident, turning his newfound abilities into millions of dollars by playing the stock market. But, Eddie's success has attracted some powerful enemies and his dwindling supply of NZT will be needed if he is going to outsmart them. watch the Limitless preview clips >> Posted 03.06.11 by BrentJS
What do you get when two of the creative minds behind two of the hottest modern horror franchises put their heads together? Tne answer is Insidious, which was co-produced by James Wan, the writer and director of the first Saw, with Oren Peli, the writer and director of Paranormal Activity, and directed by Wan from a script by Leigh Whannell, who has acted in, written and executive produced several Saw movies. How's that for a horror pedigree?
Insidious stars Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne as the parents of a boy who is being preyed on by evil entities from another dimension called "The Further." While the boy's spirit is trapped in The Further, his body is being used as a magnet and conduit for evil. As the tagline on the new poster states, "It's not the house that's haunted," it's the boy. check out the new poster for Limitless >> Posted 02.27.11 by BrentJS
A trio of new theatrical posters have been released for movies of differing genres. For romantic moviegoers, we have the first poster for director Lone Sherfig's (An Education) new movie, One Day. David Nicholls (When Did You Last See Your Father?) wrote the screenplay, which is adapted from his 2009 novel of the same name. The story follows Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess), who meet for the first time the night they both graduate from the University of Edinburgh, and then get together on the anniversary of that meeting every year for twenty years. Romola Garai, Rafe Spall and Ken Stott also star. One Day opens July 8th. two more new posters >> Posted 02.20.11 by BrentJS
At the rate we're going, you won't even have to watch Super Bowl XLV to see all of the great movie TV spots that will fill the gaps between the Packers-Steelers action (or, you can watch the game, but now you can grab snacks and use the restroom during the commercial breaks instead of staying glued to the tube). We've already seen full or partial TV spots for Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Drive Angry, now we have sneak peeks at three more movie TV spots that will air during the big game.

Last week, Relativity Media released a viral promo for its upcoming science fiction-tinged thriller, Limitless, that seemed like a typical commercial you would see on TV. Only, the spokesman for the commerical was currently-hot actor Bradley Cooper and the product being pitched was a wonder drug called NZT that unlocks the untapped potential of the human mind, but with nasty side effects like "brain damage, irreversible coma, homicidal blackouts, and sudden death." Now, the first trailer for Limitless has been released and we learn more about what NZT has to do with the movie and what effects taking the drug has on Cooper's character. watch the Limitless trailer >> Posted 12.18.10 by BrentJS
