‘Big Eyes’ Trailer - Starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz

‘Big Eyes’ Trailer - Starring Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz

I like Amy Adams in anything I have seen her in. Yes, yes, Man of Steel was a terrible movie that I hope with all my heart I never have to watch again, but Amy Adams was good in it.

Christoph Waltz I have actually only seen in two films, but I thought he was good in both.

On that basis, I am interested in this film. I’m not much of an art watcher, but this film does look interesting. It takes…

CGI Animated ‘Popeye’ Test Footage

CGI Animated ‘Popeye’ Test Footage

Popeye was one of my mainstay cartoons growing up. It was funny and unique and I enjoyed it immensely. Looking back on it, it’s pretty cheesy and probably not really worth watching. But it still holds a special place in my heart.

I was unaware of this CGI movie until just now, and I have to admit the idea of it is not very endearing. Much like my initial thoughts on the Peanuts film, I just…

The Practical Effects Abound in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Behind the Scenes

The Practical Effects Abound in ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Behind the Scenes

On of the better films this year was Edge of Tomorrow. It was fun, funny, dramatic, and had a great story. One thing that might surprise you though, is that it apparently made use of a lot more practical effects than you might imagine. We often assume that modern sci-fi is filled with green screen and CGI, and yes those things are most certainly present in Edge of Tomorrow, but this b-roll reel…

‘The Judge’ Trailer 2

‘The Judge’ Trailer 2

If Billy Bob Thornton doesn’t ruin this film, it’s going to be great I think. I’m in and I sure hope I’m not disappointed. The film primarily stars Robert Downy Jr. and Robert Duvall. Billy Bob Thornton is going to play a fairly major role though, it looks like (ugh), as the prosecutor of our two protagonist’s case.

The film will also star Vera Farmiga, Leighton Meester, and Vincent D’Onofrio.…

‘Bourne’ Talk On The Playlist

‘Bourne’ Talk On The Playlist
Edward Davis — The Playlist »

Politics, politics, politics. It’s the name of the game in Hollywood. Earlier this summer, producer Frank Marshall insisted Matt Damon wasn’t returning to the ‘Bourne’ series (because he had to) and now, he’s essentially admitting to it because the cards are all on the table. Yes, Matt Damon is coming back to play Jason Bourne, but it’s complicated (as THR says, “Let’s hope Matt…

The MovieByte Podcast #106: A Little Taste of Home

A Little Taste of Home

TJ and Joe talk about food! No, really! That’s because this week, they had the great delight of reviewing the latest offering from Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Charlotte Le Bon: ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey’. It really is a pretty fantastic film with only a few flaws and well worth seeing — certainly over much of the cruft at theaters the last few weeks. It has a wonderful story, but you might not want to see it while hungry! Also don’t miss discussion about Andrew Garfield and the blame game for Amazing Spider-Man 2’s failures, Tommy Lee Jones starring in a western (and it actually looks pretty good!), ‘Star Wars Rumors’, the first full trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’, and heavy rumors about Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass returning to do more Bourne films — which sounds exciting to Joe and TJ!

Whoa! Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass Returning for New Bourne Film!
Germain Lussier — Film »

Shocking news in the world of Bourne: reports say Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are making deals to return for their third Jason Bourne film together. (This new one would be the fifth overall film in the series.) The film would take the Summer 2016 release date that was already in place for The Bourne Legacy sequel, which was set to be directed by Justin Lin and star Jeremy Renner. Read more…

First Full Trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’

First Full Trailer for ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’

I think this series is getting better with each successive film. That’s what it looks like to me. Mockingjay Part 1 seems no less fantastic than Catching Fire if this trailer is to be believed. And given that it’s the same team at the helm, I don’t know why I wouldn’t believe it.

It does seem as if Katiniss’ interactions with President Snow might be upped and deviated a bit from the book, but I…

RUMOR: Obi Wan Kenobi Stand Alone ‘Star Wars’ Film?

RUMOR: Obi Wan Kenobi Stand Alone ‘Star Wars’ Film?
Germain Lussier — Film »

As little as we know about Star Wars Episode VII, we know even less about the Star Wars stand-alone films. We know Gareth Edwards and Josh Trank and directing the first two. We’ve heard they may be origin stories and rumors have run rampant of all the various characters that might be featured. Han Solo and Boba Fett are two of the best bets, but Yoda has been mentioned too, possibly a side…
