Maybe There Doesn’t Need To Be An Apple Watch App For Everything

Apple Watch Should Apple be concerned that a number of popular app makers like Facebook, Google and Snapchat have yet to embrace its Apple Watch platform with apps of their own? That’s a question raised by a recent New York Times piece detailing how many developers are taking “wait-and-see” approach when it comes to Apple’s new wearable.

Official US Trailer for Jeunet's 'The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet'

The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

“They think I’m an adult.” The Weinstein Company has put out a last minute new US trailer for Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet. You’ve probably heard of this one before, because it opened in Europe two years ago, in 2013, and has been delayed by The Weinstein Company for release until now. They’re quietly dumping the new Jeunet film in select theaters this weekend. We’ve posted at least one trailer for this a few years ago, but another brand new trailer has just debuted for this week’s opening. Kyle Catlett (who went on to star in Poltergeist after making this) plays T.S. Spivet in this quirky adventure about a ten-year-old cartographer who travels solo across the country. I might still check it out sometime. ›››

Watch: Trailer for Rick Alverson's Kooky New Film 'Entertainment'

Entertainment Trailer

“That’s what it’s all about folks – having fun.” A few years back filmmaker Rick Alverson broke out with a controversial comedy called The Comedy, which premiered at Sundance to both rave reviews and constant walk outs. Alverson is back again this year with a new film, Entertainment, starring Gregg Turkington as The Comedian, a performer “caught in a struggle between being the center of attention and the object of alienation”. The cast includes Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz. This is a very funky film that seems like something more from the mind of Quentin Dupieux, with lonely, dusty California landscapes and kooky characters aplenty. This is not for everyone, but might tickle your fancy. ›››

Watch: Trailer for Hannah Fidell's '6 Years' Starring Taissa Farmiga

6 Years Trailer

“I don’t want you to have regrets, we make decisions they affect the rest of our lives.” The Orchard has premiered the official trailer for Hannah Fidell’s 6 Years, a relationship drama looking at the first six years in the romantic life of a young woman. Taissa Farmiga, younger sister of actress Vera Farmiga, stars as Mel Clark. She is in a relationship with Dan Mercer, played by Ben Rosenfield. The cast includes Joshua Leonard and Lindsay Burdge from Hannah Fidell’s previous film, A Teacher. This looks quite good, I must say, it’s a nicely cut trailer with an energy to it that pulls you in, makes you feel like you’re a part of it. ›››

'Feast' Director Patrick Osborne to Take On 'Battling Boy' Adaptation

Battling Boy

One of the best animated short films of last year was Patrick Osborne’s Feast (it also won the Oscar), which played in front of Disney’s Big Hero 6. A charming story about a dog’s place in a family, the filmmaker got his foot-in-the-door to Hollywood with his work on that short and now has his first big gig. Variety confirms the Tracking Board news that Patrick Osborne is attached to direct an adaptation of Paul Pope’s graphic novel Battling Boy. We’ve actually been covering this one for years and years, reporting news on various rewrites and screenwriter updates as the film has been in development for about 7 years already. Read on. ›››

Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in Another New 'Black Mass' Trailer

Black Mass

“Jimmy’s business is Jimmy’s business…” Warner Bros has debuted one more official theatrical trailer for Scott Cooper’s Black Mass drama, starring Johnny Depp as the notorious gangster Whitey Bulger. We’ve seen plenty of trailers for this already, so we all should know what to expect at this point, but they keep revealing more and more. This time there’s a focus on Depp as Bulger, and lots of the action around his character, and he looks so damn good. And crazy. The big cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, Dakota Johnson, Joel Edgerton, Kevin Bacon and Adam Scott. I actually really dig the pacing and the intensity of this trailer, thanks to the song “Till It’s Gone” by Yelawolf. Enjoy! ›››

Requiem For The App Revolution

too-many-apps-fb The app revolution is dead. In fact, it died years ago. It had been a good run, but a revolution is no longer a revolution when the model is the status quo. With new apps created every day, the revolution has definitely been televised, commoditized and capitalized. But while the app revolution is dead, a new movement is rising to take its place — the experience evolution. Read More
