Ant-Man Trailer Teaser

Yesterday, Marvel released a miniature “ant-sized” version of the Ant-Man trailer teaser. Only it was purposely too small to see.

Today, they followed that up with the full “human-sized” version of the trailer teaser ahead of the release of the full trailer, which will drop on January 6 during the first episode of Marvel’s new show, Agent Carter.

We get a brief glimpse of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, and Corey Stoll as Darren Cross. It’s a major tease, but hey, at least we actually know what we’re being shown this time.

Be sure come back here on January 6 for the full length trailer.

Ant-Sized ‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Teaser

By Will Oliver, January 2nd 2015

Today, Marvel shared a pint-sized version of the Ant-Man trailer teaser – only it’s so small that you can barely make out any of the action. Got to hand it to Marvel, this is pretty damn clever and hilarious, but mostly very cruel. This comes ahead of the actual premiere of the trailer which will come on January 6 during the first episode of Marvel’s new show Agent Carter (on ABC).

You can watch the trailer below, but head back here on Tuesday when we will have the full resolution trailer to share with you guys.

Ant-Man is directed by Peyton Reed and will be released in theaters on July 17.

Knight Of Cups

Knight Of Cups is the latest tale from the always mysterious Terrence Malick, who has stayed awfully busy these last few years (it’s his 3rd film since 2011). Details on the film were previously scarce, aside from the eclectic cast, which includes Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Natalie Portman, and Antonio Banderas.

Today the trailer has been released for the film, and it looks stunning. It’s very Malick, with swirling camerawork (from longtime cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki) and melancholic voiceover narration. But the setting of L.A. is something different for Malick, used to follow Rick, the protagonist played by Bale, who seems to get swept away in the land of temptation that is Hollywood.

Here’s a interesting synopsis that the film has shared:

“Once there was a young prince whose father, the king of the East, sent him down into Egypt to find a pearl. But when the prince arrived, the people poured him a cup. Drinking it, he forgot he was the son of a king, forgot about the pearl and fell into a deep sleep. Rick’s father used to read this story to him as a boy. The road to the East stretches out before him. Will he set forth?”

The stunning cast also includes Wes Bentley, Brian Dennehy, Freida Pinto, Isabel Lucas, Teresa Palmer, Imogen Poots, Armin Mueller-Stahl and the voice of Ben Kingsley.

Knight Of Cups will have it’s World Premiere at the Berlin Film Festival next February, with its theatrical release coming later in the year. Enjoy the trailer below.

After spending almost a quarter of a century in development hell and actually seeing progress within the last decade, George Miller’s franchise anti-hero Mad Max is returning to the big screen in a big way – without lead actor Mel Gibson.

Trailer: ‘San Andreas’

By Alex Ebron, December 11th 2014

San Andreas Poster

Disaster movies! What could be more instantly gratifying than watching the world end or the city you reside in, fall to pieces? From The Towering Inferno, to the more recent 2012, disaster movies have always been void of any true material yet they will always attract audiences with great visuals and set pieces. How does one top this feat? Add a bona fide action star in Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and no matter how brainless San Andreas might be, the audience will find some sort of satisfaction out of it.

San Andreas Still

The Rock plays a helicopter pilot from L.A. who has some sort of estrangement with his daughter (Alexandra Daddario). He’s from L.A., she’s from San Francisco, and a large-scale earthquake strikes. The Rock goes to San Fran to find her, along with his wife (Carla Gugino). Then there’s a scientist too smart for his own good (Paul Giamatti) who warns us that the earthquake will soon spread to the East coast. Pretty formulaic and standard for your disaster film right?

Nonetheless, the first trailer is filled with great visuals and a few thrills along the way. Director Brad Payton teams up once again with Dwayne Johnson. The last time they paired up was in 2012 for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. This tandem seems to work for great adventure pieces. Johnson, coming from the summer success of Hercules is on a hot streak and I expect San Andreas to keep fire. The Brahma Bull can’t be stopped.

San Andreas hits theaters on May 29, 2015. Enjoy the trailer below.
