We got our first look back in November at Chappie, the upcoming film from director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium).

Now, a second trailer for the film has been released, which you can watch here below.

The new trailer see the roles of Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Sigourney Weaver come into sharper focus and reveals more action than the more emotional spin of the first trailer. It also became more apparent to me that Chappie draws strongly on elements from two sci-fi classics, RoboCop and Short Circuit, which Blomkamp is weaving into a dystopian sci-fi take on Pinocchio.

RELEASE DATE: June 11, 2013

With shows like Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, and True Blood leading the charge, it’s clear that HBO’s hit shows can often have a hefty budget and rely heavily on visual effects and costumes and so on. One of their newer series, The Newsroom, is not one of those shows.

Created by Aaron Sorkin, the show is simple enough on the surface—being about the inner workings of a news team—but a collection of lives intertwined within this newsroom setting leads to plenty of interesting storylines as the show progresses. Instead of the aforementioned effects and costumes, it instead relies on two key things: writing and acting, and nails both of them consistently.

Watch Now: ‘The Last Airbender’ Trailer

By Seaberry

The Last AirbenderA new trailer has been released for The Last Airbender.

Check it out here below.

As I was watching the trailer, I saw several scenes from the first episode of the animated series. They got the clothing and the overall feel of the film exactly right, even the effects when Aang uses his power.

It was also cool to see Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire in action. The music and visuals give the trailer a truly epic feel. It looks as though M. Night Shyamalan and the rest of the crew “get” the story and the world that these characters inhabit. It looks like it is going to be a fun, wild ride.

Check out the trailer below courtesy of our friends at Fused Film, and let us know what your thoughts.

What do you think of the new trailer? Do you think the film will do the animated series justice?

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – Chapter I

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – Chapter ILet’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: Yes, we know it’s been a few months since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.

So here we are, geeks; we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be a month or so into the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!

We must once again declare that this list is also simply opinion. You are are without doubt going to find movies here that you hate and do not think deserve to be included. You will surely think of movies that you think should not only be on here, but that should be at the very top of the list. There will even be some that I have not seen and thus, can not add. Even at this very moment, I sit, worrying and wondering if I’ve forgotten any that I would include; that’s just the way things fly when compiling something this massive.

With all of that said, we invite you in to relax and check out Chapter I of our list, The Decade List: The 59 Best Films of the Past Ten Years!
