"Oh no, I can't be late on the first day!"
In the 2001 hit Monsters, Inc., bed-time monsters Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) end up befriending and, ultimately, saving a human child from their city of Monstropolis while simultaneously helping to uncover a scandal at their titular workplace. Monsters, Inc. was only Pixar Animation's fourth movie and its second outside of the Toy Story franchise, but was a huge box office success, earning more worldwide than Toy Story 2.
So where has the sequel been? The upcoming prequel Monsters University, answers that question, albeit twelve years later. The holdup lies somewhere in Disney's 2006 acquisition of Pixar, but resulted in the decade-plus delay. Nonetheless, Monsters University picks up years before the events of Monsters, Inc., with Mike and Sully meeting at college, where their friendship began as a rivalry prompted by competitiveness to see who was the scarier monster, as seen in the newly-released international trailer. watch the trailer >> Posted 02.11.13 by Ryan
"Folk songs? I thought you said you were a musician."
Academy Award–winning writer-directors Joel and Ethan Coen (No Country for Old Men, True Grit, Fargo) have made movies in almost every genre, but their latest, Inside Llewyn Davis, is a first; a tale of a fictional folk singer named Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) set in the 1960s. Sure, the Coens have made movies set in the 1960s before (A Serious Man) and have even made movies that include folk music (Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?), but this is the first to tackle the folk music in the 1960s.
Reportedly based loosely on the life of Dave van Ronk, an American folk singer who was a part of the Greenwich Village folk scene of the 60s who was an influence on Bob Dylan and others, Inside Llewyn Davis has yet to find distribution, however Thompson on Hollywood has managed to find a trailer sent as a special invite to industry professionals for a February screening on the Sony lot. The trailer, which does have language that is NSFW, offers a first, hazy look at Isaac as the troubled singer, along with co-stars Carey Mulligan (Drive) as a sharp-tongued ex, Justin Timberlake (The Social Network) as Mulligan's husband as well as Coen regular John Goodman (The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink) and Garrett Hedlund (seemingly on loan from On The Road). the latest in folksy trailers

Love or hate the Hangover movies, production has begun on the third and final installment, after co-writer and director Todd Phillips called The Hangover 3 a "fitting conclusion to our three-part opera of mayhem, despair and bad decisions" back in March.
While the sequel will undoubtedly bring back Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and proverbial fourth wheel Justin Bartha in another drug-induced, amnesia-filled adventure, the exact details on The Hangover Part III have been unknown, though Cooper revealed last year that the sequel would "maybe not adhere to the structure." Finally, Warner Bros. has finally released some very brief details about the sequel via ComingSoon. more about The Hangover Part III >> Posted 09.10.12 by Ryan
Clint Eastwood is back. To acting, anyway. Or, to be more precise, to acting and not directing. For the first time since 1993's In the Line of Fire, Eastwood is not behind the camera (though he is producing) but in front of the camera for the baseball scout drama Trouble with the Curve. Instead, the directing duties are being handled by first-time helmer Robert Lorenz, Eastwood's longtime producing partner. Trouble With the Curve stars Eastwood as an aging Atlanta Braves scout with vision problems named Gus, who recruits his daughter Mickey (Amy Adams) to be his eyes for a recruiting trip.
"He gets his chance to prove whether he still has value as a scout—and as a dad," Lorenz told Entertainment Weekly. "They’re having trouble communicating. They always have, and now they’ve come to a point in the relationship where it’s either going to change or it’s not. He needs a little help, and she decides it’s worth the effort." EW has also released some first-look photos from the project, which co-stars Justin Timberlake as a rival scout who respects Gus, and soon finds that he has feelings for his daughter as well. check out the photos >> Posted 07.27.12 by Ryan
With a new Disney Pixar movie, Brave, hitting theaters this week, now is a great time to start promoting the studio's next movie, Monsters University. Four variations of one trailer have just been released online and it looks like this animated flick will deliver far more laughs than scares.
The movie is a prequel to the 2001 hit Monsters, Inc., and it follows Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal) at college, where they weren't always the best of friends. This new trailer reveals a few facts about the new movie and these already beloved characters. First, it seems that, in their younger days, Sulley was the bigger prankster and Mike was the more studious of the pair. Second, monsters dreams aren't that different than everyone else's. And finally, nothing sets a mood like a disco ball and some Spandau Ballet. Well, maybe everybody already knew that last thing. watch the trailer variations >> Posted 06.20.12 by Mandy
The epic movie event Pope Joan will be re-airing on ReelzChannel this month and again in March to celebrate National Women's History Month (NWHM). March is officially NWHM and what better way to celebrate than to honor a legendary woman whose alleged existence has been denied for over a thousand years.
Pope Joan is the story of a controversial figure of historical record who disguised herself as a man and rose to rule the Catholic Church in the 9th century as the first and only woman to sit on the throne of St. Peter. The movie, based on the international bestselling novel by Donna Woolfolk Cross, features the performances of John Goodman, Johanna Wokalek and David Wenham.

Despite appearances in movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and Live Free or Die Hard, actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead has never strayed too far from her horror roots, which started with 2006's Final Destination 3 and Black Christmas and continued to last year's The Thing. For Winstead's latest journey into the genre, she will team with The Last Exorcism director Daniel Stamm for The Darkness.
Written by Megan Holley (Sunshine Cleaning) and loosely based on Henry James' classic novel Turn of the Screw, The Darkness will follow Winstead as a young American student who looks after young children in a British manor and is convinced they are the victims of a haunting.
Screen Daily reports that The Darkness will start shooting in Europe this summer and that British distributor HanWay Films has already agreed to release the movie internationally. "We were blown away by The Last Exorcism," said HanWay managing director Thorsten Schumacher. "Given the recent box office success of the ghost movie genre in attracting the sought after younger audience, the timing is perfect to bring this haunting thriller to the marketplace." goodman pairs with eastwood; alexander plots to kill >> Posted 02.09.12 by Ryan
