Hot Trailer: ‘The Maze Runner’

By | Tuesday July 29, 2014 @ 9:39am PDT

Hot Trailer: ‘The Maze Runner’20th Century Fox unveiled new footage and cast at Comic-Con on Friday for The Maze Runner, which bows September 19. It’s based on James Dashner’s bestselling YA novel about youngsters marooned on a maze-ridden island. Wes Ball directed and Dylan O’Brien, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie Sangster and Aml Ameen star. Noah Oppenheim, Grant Myers and T.S. Nowlin adapted the book. The pic had been set for a February 2014 release but it was pushed back. That shouldn’t be an indication of unhappiness though — Fox already exercised the option to buy The Scorch Trials, the second book in Dashner’s four-book series. So is this looking franchise-worthy?

By | Sunday July 27, 2014 @ 11:41am PDT

Hot Comic-Con Trailer: ‘Batkid Begins’ Brings Make-A-Wish Phenom To ScreenEXCLUSIVE: Five-year-old Miles Scott touched hearts all over the world last November when he donned a cape and cowl to “save” Gotham City – aka, San Francisco – as “Batkid.” Now award-winning filmmaker Dana Nachman (Witch Hunt) is taking his story to the screen in a feature-length crowdfunded documentary (watch the trailer exclusively on Deadline).

The Batkid phenomenon went viral after the Make-a-Wish Foundation staged its most elaborate wish to date: The charity, with the help of The City, President Obama, and thousands of supporters, turned the streets of San Francisco into Gotham City on Nov. 15, 2013. Scott, a leukemia patient now in remission, got to live every superhero-loving child’s fantasy as he played sidekick to the Caped Crusader in a series of staged missions as onlookers cheered him on. It all culminated with Scott receiving the key to the city from Mayor Ed Lee. The entire event sparked more than 400K tweets in 117 countries, among much else social-media attention, and received a Digital Visionary Award from the Producers Guild.

Hot (Tub) Trailer: ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ Redband Unveiled At Comic-Con

By | Thursday July 24, 2014 @ 5:00pm PDT

Hot (Tub) Trailer: ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ Redband Unveiled At Comic-ConFour years ago, a modern dude quartet took a booze-soaked soak in a hot tub and were hurled back to the Reagan era. Now Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke are suited up for the sequel (though John Cusack isn’t) and are joined for Round 2 by Adam Scott and Gillian Jacobs. This time when our heroes fire up their watery wayback machine, they accidentally are sent to the future. And of course they must alter said future so they can preserve the past — which is really the present. Got that? Anyway, Steve Pink returns to direct from a script by Josh Heald, who co-wrote the 2010 original. Paramount will unwrap Hot Tub Time Machine 2 on Christmas Day. Until then, here’s the decidedly NSFW redband trailer:

Hot Hot Trailer: ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Hot Hot Trailer: ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’Mr. Grey will see you now. But when has there been a major studio film with two less recognizable actors playing the leads? Universal and Focus Features are squarely banking on the numbers here — the E.L. James erotic novel Fifty Shades Of Grey has sold over 100 million steamy copies around the world — and less concerned that, as they deliver those signature bawdy lines in the erotic love story, newcomers Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey (“I don’t do romance”) and Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele (“Enlighten me then”) are less recognizable than some of the actors you see regularly in TV commercials. Did Universal make the right choice in discovering stars who’ll bare all over a three or four movie arc, after Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam got cold feet? Set to a remix of Beyoncé’s “Crazy In Love”, the promo seems like tasty foreplay that only hints at the serious relationship dynamic (a girl’s seemingly perfect first love, who turns out to be damaged perhaps beyond repair and must dominate his partners). Sam Taylor-Johnson directs the adaptation of the mega-bestselling book. The global rollout starts February 11, 2015.

Simon Cowell Exec Producing One Direction Event Cinema Concert Film

Simon Cowell Exec Producing One Direction Event Cinema Concert FilmEnglish-Irish boy band sensation One Direction gave fans something extra to get excited about this morning. The pop idols announced an upcoming film of their current Where We Are tour (see trailer below), touting it as “the first ever full One Direction concert experience on the big screen.” In keeping with the growing trend towards event cinema, One Direction: Where We Are – The Concert Film will screen for one weekend only — October 11 and 12 — in theaters worldwide. Recorded in June at Milan’s San Siro stadium, the film will feature the concert, interviews and backstage tour footage. In 2013, the Morgan Spurlock-directed 3D documentary One Direction: This Is Us grossed $68.5M worldwide. That Sony/Tri Star release was produced by Simon Cowell‘s Syco Entertainment in association with Fulwell 73. The latter is producing the new concert film which is presented by Syco, Sony Music Entertainment, Modest Management and Arts Alliance. Cowell is again among the exec producers. The five One Direction members were discovered on Cowell’s X Factor UK in 2010. Since then, they’ve sold over 29M records. Paul Dugdale, who directed The Rolling Stones ‘Sweet Summer Sun: Hyde Park Live’ last summer, is helming the Where We Are movie.

Hot Trailer: ‘The Imitation Game’ With Benedict Cumberbatch & Keira Knightley

Hot Trailer: ‘The Imitation Game’ With Benedict Cumberbatch & Keira KnightleyEarlier today, the London Film Festival set The Imitation Game as its opening-night gala. We now have a trailer courtesy of The Weinstein Co — which paid a whopping $7M for the Morten Tyldum-directed movie at the Berlin EFM in February. Benedict Cumberbatch stars in the story of Alan Turing, the genius British mathematician, logician, cryptologist and computer scientist who led the charge to crack the German Enigma Code that helped the Allies win World War II. Winston Churchill said Turing’s was the single biggest contribution to Allied victory, but the brilliant scientist was later prosecuted by the UK government in 1952 for homosexual acts which the country deemed illegal. He died two years later and was just granted a posthumous pardon by the Queen in December last year. The film centers on Turing and his team’s race against time to break the Enigma code at Britain’s top-secret Bletchley Park facility. Graham Moore wrote the script. Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Mark Strong, Rory Kinnear, Charles Dance, Allen Leech and Matthew Beard also star. Weinstein will release in the awards-season corridor on November 21; Studiocanal releases a week earlier in the UK.
