Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

“Everyone must fight!” No exceptions! Screen Gems has debuted a new international trailer for Burr Steers’ Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, the classic-romance-mashed-with-zombie-horror adaptation due out next February. We’ve already featured two full-length trailers previously, and this keeps looking better and better the more they start to show. This trailer throws in just about everything – blood splattering everywhere, POV of the zombie-head-being-cut-off, the sisters teaming up in the hallway, it’s all here and it looks pretty damn good. Lily James stars as Elizabeth Bennet, joined by Ellie Bamber, Bella Heathcote, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, plus Sam Riley, Matt Smith, Jack Huston, Douglas Booth, and Lena Headey. ›››

Watch: Steve Desmond's 'Twilight Zone'-Style Sci-Fi Short 'Monsters'


“I can fight the monsters!” Time for an excellent throwback to “The Twilight Zone”. Monsters (not to be confused with Gareth Edwards’ breakout sci-fi film) is a short film from director Steve Desmond about a family living in an underground bunker, away from the monsters that roam the world above. It is a full-on “Twilight Zone” homage in the way the monsters are exactly who/what you expect them to be (we are all the monsters! oh no!) and yet there is still a twist ending, all within about 12 minutes. It’s good, an entertaining short film discovery that is worth your time to watch. Especially if you appreciate “Twilight Zone”. Enjoy. ›››

Review: Ryan Coogler's 'Creed' is Early Contender for Best of the Year

Creed Review

Ryan Coogler’s Creed is the best film of the year. That may come as a shock for some of you especially if you’re among those old enough to remember many of the hokier directions the Rocky series took. After six films and several ups and downs, it didn’t seem reasonable to go back to the Balboa well once again. Instead, it was time to revitalize the series for a newer, younger audience. I know what several of you think of the word “reboot,” but, when it works – and those exceptions are few and far between – there’s no denying it. Everything in Creed works perfectly, and the movie not only spins off from the Rocky series in the most organic and best way possible, it stands on its own as a flawlessly realized work of cinema. ›››

Google Launches 'Choose Your Side' Promo with 'Star Wars' Themes

Google Star Wars

Do you follow the Light Side, or the Dark Side, of the Force? That is the question. With the release of the new Star Wars just weeks away, marketing crossovers are appearing all over. One of the latest takeovers is Google going all out and hiding Easter Eggs in their website. The first one appeared when fans discovered that if you type “A long time ago in a galaxy far far away” into the search bar, the website turns into the opening text crawl from the movies. Google has also launched official themes as part of a new website where you get to “Choose Your Side” – either the Light or Dark Side – and it adds images to your Gmail and Google Maps and everything. If you use Google apps all the time (like me) you’ll want to take a closer look at this. ›››

The Little Prince Movie Trailer

“I’m not so sure I want to grow up anymore…” Paramount has released yet another new trailer for the animated movie The Little Prince, based on the beloved story Le Petit Prince which is shown in this using stop-motion. We just featured the new full-length international trailer last week (not to mention a few other trailers), and now we have another that is very similar but features some incredible new footage near the end. The English-language voice cast features Jeff Bridges, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard, James Franco, Paul Rudd, Benicio del Toro, Paul Giamatti, Ricky Gervais, Albert Brooks, and Bud Cort. This does look wonderful and I still want to see it. “Do you know how to fly a plane? Buckle up.” ›››

Sarah Wayne Callies in Trailer for Horror 'The Other Side of the Door'

The Other Side of the Door Trailer

It was never meant to be opened. Fox has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming horror thriller The Other Side of the Door, starring Sarah Wayne Callies (from “The Walking Dead”, Into the Storm) as a grieving mother desperate for emotional closure after her son is killed in a freak accident. She eventually enters into a strange supernatural world in an attempt to contact her dead son from the other side. The cast includes Jeremy Sisto and Javier Botet. Interestingly this seems to be set mostly in India so it’s a whole different kind of supernatural, but still just as chilling. If you’re a fan horror this is worth taking a look at. ›››

Watch: Featurette Explains the 70mm Roadshow of 'The Hateful Eight'

The Hateful Eight Roadshow Featurette

“Here’s what makes 70mm so glorious!” Still confused by the “roadshow” version of The Hateful Eight? The Weinstein Company has released a featurette explaining the story behind why Quentin Tarantino wanted to shoot this film in 65mm ultra-panavision and how they’re planning to release it in 70mm in certain theaters around the country. The video features Tarantino plus Samuel L. Jackson, cinematographer Robert Richardson, and many others. They explain that this roadshow is basically a big, special occasion that features an overture, and an intermission, and a playbill and everything. This is awesome and I’m glad they finally released this video for The Hateful Eight, the 11th feature shot in ultra-panavision. Do not miss. ›››

Uber Chases The Perfect Ride With Back-To-Back Trips

shutterstock_6701266 There’s a secret equation Uber is constantly trying to optimize, where Uber and the driver earn the most money possible while the passenger pays the least. Internally, I’ve heard Uber refers to this as “the perfect ride”. It might seem like the two halves of the equation fundamentally clash, and in a way they do, but the trick is in maximizing efficiency of every part… Read More
