Trailer: Kung Fu Panda 2

— by ADAM POYNTER — In case you couldn’t get enough of the 2008 hit “Kung Fu Panda,” then I am sure you will be happy to know that the sequel “Kung Fu Panda 2” is right around the corner. I am glad to announce that the entire original cast, plus many more talented[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Red Riding Hood’ (Teaser Version)

— by ALEXA MILAN — First classic novels like “Wuthering Heights” and “Pride and Prejudice” got “Twilight”-inspired covers. Now, a popular fairy tale is about to get a supernatural romance makeover. I sure don’t remember the tale of Little Red Rid[...]

Kung Fu Panda 2: Teaser

— by SHERICE ANTOINETTE — One word comes to mind after watching the teaser trailer for “Kung Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom”: hilarious. Just as the trailer dictates, the awesomeness returns next summer and if the sequel is as amusing as this teaser, the second film will be as funny [...]

Is ‘Batman 3’ Finally A Go?

— by BEN FOWLER — A moderately-successful film followed by the (now) third most successful film of all time — sounds like a threequel would be a sure thing, no? Not in the Caped Crusader’s case it appeared. After 2008’s uber smash-hit “The Dark Knight,” director[...]

Under Review: ‘The Book of Eli’

— by MARIUSZ ZUBROWSKI — Post-apocalyptic films commonly use a bleak representation of the world to illustrate a political message. Besides an occasional “Oh, God” blurted out by one of its leads, it’s rare for a director to look at a nuclear wasteland through a[...]

Eleven Clips from ‘The Book of Eli’

— by ROBERT DeFEIS — Those of you reading this have probably already seen the trailer and, if you have any doubts about this being a fantastic film, these clips should put any of those thoughts into hibernation and will most likely get you to the theater this Friday to see the film. I am[...]

Behind the Stunts in ‘The Book of Eli’

— by CAM SMITH — Thus far, the Hughes Brothers (Albert and Allen for the curious) are three-for-three in regards to their fictional film work — I’ve yet to see their “American Pimp” documentary — with “Menace 2 Society,” “Dead Presidents” and “From Hell” all[...]

Six Clips From ‘Disney’s A Christmas Carol’

— by CAM SMITH — It’s been almost 10 years since Robert Zemeckis directed a film with flesh-and-blood actors in front the camera and I don’t really see this as a particularly stellar accomplishment. His first two experimentations with motion-capture animation — “The Polar[...]

Poster Peek: ‘The Book of Eli’

— by ALEXA MILAN — January is usually a pretty unexciting time for new movies, but hopefully the latest film from Albert and Allen Hughes will be an exception. “The Book of Eli” is set in a post-apocalyptic America, a bleak and violent society where the world as people once knew it[...]

Under Review: ‘Planet 51’

— by JOEL CRARY — Compared to “Wall-E,” the Pixar animated film about a robot who journeys into outer space and finds out more about humanity’s place in the grand scheme of things, “Planet 51” is pretty inert. It’s a film about first contact[...]

Ten Clips From ‘Planet 51’

— by SEAN GERSKI — When the Academy Awards nominations are announced on Feb. 2, 2010, there will be great anticipation over which animated movies made the cut for the Animated Feature Film category. In some years, it is hard to justify even three films receiving nominations[...]

A Clip From ‘Planet 51’

— by JOSUE SANCHEZ — There is a lot to be said about the clip for the movie “Planet 51” shown below. To me, it is smart to not just show a montage of different clips from a movie, but to provide a two-minute clip of perhaps a key moment instead. In this case, that’s[...]

Trailer Talk: ‘The Book of Eli’

— by ROB COX — The Hughes Brothers haven’t directed a movie since 2001’s “From Hell,” a film I liked a lot. Their latest release, “The Book of Eli,” stars Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman. I’ve never been a huge fan of Washington, though I’m usually game [...]

Trailer Talk: ‘Disney’s A Christmas Carol’

— by JON MARTINCIC — Robert Zemeckis is doing “A Christmas Carol.” Need I say more? It’s an animated version of the Charles Dickens classic tale and from the looks of the trailer, it’s done very well. Zemeckis — whose resume includes the “Back to the Future” trilogy[...]
