Godzilla Full Trailer #1

Clocking in at a little over two minutes in length, the teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Godzilla remake was more satisfying than the usual teaser is.

Now Legendary Pictures has released the first full trailer for the movie. The new trailer is only slightly longer than the teaser, but shows plenty of new footage and features more dialogue from some of the film’s characters, including a healthy dose of Bryan Cranston in his role as “guy who tries to warn lots of people who don’t listen/cooperate until it’s too late.”

You can check out the first full Godzilla trailer below.

John C Reilly

Out of all the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe scheduled for release during Phase Two, James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy would be the only one that isn’t a sequel. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana (who reportedly isn’t fully committed to the film just yet), Dave Bautista, and Michael Rooker all have starring roles in the film, with Lee Pace in negotiations to play the antagonist. The roles of Rocket Raccoon and Groot still have to be cast though, but with filming scheduled to begin later this summer, expect to hear of some names taking the role really soon.

Now it’s being reported that John C. Reilly (Wreck-It Ralph) has been offered a role as Rhomman Dey in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Andrew Garfield

From social media platform mogul to webslinging hero, Andrew Garfield’s stock has yet to reach its peak, and now the actor will add another project to his resume that will surely bring his name up a few more ticks. Variety broke the news that the actor will star alongside Ken Watanabe in Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Shusaku Endo’s novel Silence. Like the novel, the film will center on Jesuits who spread Christianity in 17th century Japan.

Garfield will play Father Rodriguez, one of the priests who will attempt to spread the word of the Gospel, while Watanabe will play the priest’s interpeter. The report says that as soon as Scorsese completes his work on The Wolf of Wall Street, which is scheduled for a December release, he would start to film Silence in Summer 2014 for a holiday 2015 release.

Akira Takarada & Gareth Edwards Godzilla

Fans of Godzilla and monster movies in general couldn’t help but instantly think of Roland Emmerich’s 1998 disasterpiece of a remake when it was revealed that a new reboot was on the way.

But thankfully things appear to be going in the right direction with the reboot as far as casting is concerned, and the latest actor to be confirmed for the movie brings with them some positive vibes that the reboot will be very faithful to the original Godzilla movie, titled Gojira.

Legendary Pictures has released a new image via the Twitter of reboot director Gareth Edwards and Akira Takarada, one of the stars of the 1954 original movie.

Inception blu-rayInception
Blu-ray Combo Pack | DVD
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Paige, Marion Cotillard, Michael Cain, Cillian Murphy, Ken Watanabe
Warner Bros Home Entertainment
Release date: December 7, 2010

American Beauty had a tagline that instructed us to “look closer.” Apply this instruction to Inception and see what lurks underneath the myriad of descriptions explaining what inception and extraction actually are. Adhering to a more surgical approach to Christopher Nolan’s film we will be granted what truly drives the movie. Looking closer we are no longer misconstrued by the esoteric explanations of dreams, but are firmly grooved along a rail that is undeviating in its approach of getting to the heart of the film: which is the wounded souls of two men who inhabit an unrelenting atmosphere of ceaseless action.

The true meaning of this film isn’t about penetrating through multiple layers of dreams, nor is it about an espionage heist. Inception, as psychologically brilliant as it is, is even more potent when it reveals that it has a heart; a heart so beaten down to a wounded mass that it is thriving to be resuscitated. It is this kind of heart that takes the film past the esoteric and psychological realms of excessive commotion and into the heights of the masses who can empathize with what it is like to have a heart that feels it cannot be mended. Here is Nolan channeling a universal theme of extreme grief. We are swimming in a pool of grief the entire span of the film (the brooding soundtrack is evidence). Hearts want to mend the past, dissipate the regret pervading its existence and get revenge on things eating away at it. Nolan created a character that had intact these same motivations in his hallmark film Memento. That film and Inception reveal men disconcerted with their current way of living, motivated by past events and regrets that have the potential to drive them mad.

Inception – **1/2
Directed by Christopher Nolan
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine
Release date: July 16, 2010

A thief of dreams is one who drowns out the purities of cinema, cashing in on the big budget extravaganzas and deterring from the simplicity of storytelling in favor of an extremely intellectual web of narrative that proves to be in the long run too tedious, too sophisticated, and too savvy for its own good. Ideas are extrapolated from the likes of Freud and Jung, then are mixed with cinematic concepts spanning from 2001: A Space Odyssey, to BladeRunner and to The Matrix. All of this and more occurs in Inception, a refreshing film that seems to have forgotten how a great cinematic tale can be told with such simplicity.

What is meant to confound the mind in a stimulating and energetic manner turns into a rather laborious process that gives us a contemptuous attitude towards a film that dares the impossible: it perceives colossal dreams and attempts to make them possible (key word there being ‘attempt’). An exuberant imagination, even an overwhelming fury of inventive images, is displayed before us with hopes of redefining not only the sci-fi genre, but the entire panorama of cinema. The elaborate logistical demands of director and screenwriter Christopher Nolan’s film is a cause for celebration only because he is audacious enough to go dream them up and apply them to his film. He conjures up an inconceivable idea that obliterates the familiar landmarks of cinema and troubles the mind profoundly, but in a way that is detrimental to his film.
