Isle of Dogs Header

Wes Anderson films are anything but conventional. He has a visual sense composed of flat cameras, snappy zooms, symmetrical compositions, hand-made art, and miniature feels, that give the film’s setting a sense of uniqueness. On top of that, he has a quirky and yet hypnotic soundtrack that often utilizes pop songs of the ’60s and ’70s. Then there is the dysfunctional family that takes center stage of the storytelling. And while all of that plays a huge role in his live-action films, Anderson has also dipped his hand into stop-motion animation. An animation medium where his skills can be put to good uses because of its use of practical hand made set pieces.

Which takes us to Isle of Dogs, Anderson’s latest directorial effort that uses stop-motion animation. And just wait until you hear who has lent their talents for the film. Check out the cast and trailer below.

“Welcome to a new world of gods and monsters.”

If you’re a moviegoer in the year 2017, odds are you’re familiar with the concept of a “shared cinematic universe.” Whether it’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s The Avengers or the DC Extended Universe’s upcoming Justice League, we understand that these franchises are built on standalone stories set within the same continuity, leading to crossover events and team-up films.

The idea of a shared cinematic universe came into being over 70 years ago with the emergence of Universal Monsters. Following their popular silent films, 1923’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame and 1925’s The Phantom of the Opera, Universal Studios began developing talkies based on other classic horror characters. 1931’s Dracula and Frankenstein got things started, followed by The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), 1935’s Bride of Frankenstein, and The Wolf Man (1941).

Universal's The Mummy

Sometimes explorers should just leave ancient temples be. But where’s the fun in that? We’ve all heard the story before of an ancient evil being unleashed on accident, on purpose, or just because someone is curious. It’s all been done before. But for Universal’s reboot of The Mummy, it’s a little bit different. That’s because it’s a part of a dark universe of monsters.

In the film’s final action-packed trailer we see Tom Cruise being attacked by ancient monsters and hurled out of vehicles. All the while, audiences will “Witness The Beginning of a Dark Universe.” Check out the final trailer below.

The Mummy reboot Sofia Boutella

Universal Pictures has released the second trailer for The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella, Jake Johnson, Annabelle Wallis, and Russell Crowe.

Check out the full trailer below.

Movie Review: Office Christmas Party

Office Christmas Party
Directed by: Will Speck, Josh Gordon
Written by: Justin Malen, Laura Solon, Dan Mazer
Cast: Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon, Jennifer Aniston, Vanessa Bayer, Rob Corddry, Jamie Chung, Jillian Bell
Distributor: Paramount Pictures
Rated R | 105 Minutes
Release Date: December 9, 2016

“Party like your job depends on it.”

Directed by Will Speck and Josh Gordon (Blades of Glory, The Switch), Office Christmas Party is like its star, T.J. Miller: loud, obnoxious, occasionally funny, and best when loaded on drugs and alcohol.

When Zenotek CEO Carol Vanstone (Jennifer Aniston) tries to close her hard-partying brother’s branch in Chicago, he (Clay Vanstone, played by Miller) and Chief Technical Officer Josh Parker (Jason Bateman) must rally their co-workers and host an epic non-denominational holiday mixer Christmas party to woo potential client Walter Davis (The People v. O.J. Simpson‘s Courtney B. Vance) and close a sale that will save their jobs.

The Mummy reboot Tom Cruise Annabelle Wallis

Now that Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, it’s time to answer some of those lingering questions we may have about the film. No, not about the shared Monsters universe that the studio is creating, but on how they shot that gravity-defying scene that sees Cruise and co-star Annabelle Wallis twisting and turning in a plane.

As it turns out, this wasn’t CGI or done on a soundstage. This was real and shot in an aircraft, appropriately called The Vomit Comet. Watch the featurette here below.

Universal's The Mummy

The popularity of a shared universe is undeniable. Disney has their Marvel Cinematic Universe, while Warner Bros. has the DC Extended Universe. Both studios use comic book source materials to expand and grow their superhero franchises. This doesn’t leave much for other studios. But in the case for Universal, they have their classic monster movies at their disposal. So, in order to keep up with the competition, they are launching a shared Monsters universe, and it will all kick off with Alex Kurtzman‘s The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Star Trek Beyond)

The film’s first trailer dropped during Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead. Check it out here below.

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY header

The holiday season is upon us, and that means it’s time to party and celebrate the end of the year. And what kind of celebration would it be without a Christmas party, especially the kind of party that involves drinking, physical humor, and other unsightly vulgarity? Paramount Pictures has released the latest trailer for Josh Gordon & Will Speck‘s Office Christmas Party, starring Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T. J. Miller, Jillian Bell, Courtney B. Vance, Kate McKinnon and Jennifer Aniston. As you might expect with the cast and the title, this will be the kind of office Christmas party that everyone will be talking about, that is, if they’ll be able to recall it after the amount of alcohol they’ve consumed.

Check out the full trailer below.

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY header

If it is December, chances are you will probably be invited to a Christmas Party to celebrate Yule Tides and Season’s Greetings. Of course, at these parties there’s bound to be some egg nog with a little alcoholic kick to it, which leads to some sort of drunken shenanigans, dumping one’s feelings over the office crush, and a nice hangover the next morning.

Now, a new comedy called Office Christmas Party will explore all those regrettable themes. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, and since this is a movie, things get seriously out of hand.

Check out the new trailer below.
