NEW TERMINATOR: SALVATION PICS!

Saturday, March 21 by

Columbia Pictures just released a new set of promotional photos for Terminator: Salvation.  This is looking more and more like Mad Max meets Cyberdyne, and I like it.  More photos for you to click and make all nice n' big (like the handsome one of the blow'd up T-800 exoskeleton one above) after the jump…

REVIEW: I LOVE YOU, MAN

Friday, March 20 by

I take issue with the word "Bromance."  But I guess it’s better than Brotonic Brolationship. I Love You, Man is a "bromantic comedy."  That’s it.  And I am fine with…

THE CRITERION CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON

Friday, March 20 by

Cinematical's Elisabeth Rappe just announced that David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button will forego the regular DVD release period that normal films get before being deemed a classic, in order to go straight to the gilded library of high society that is the Criterion Collection.  Don't worry, peasants.  The regular release will be available on your primitive studio-released DVD and Blu-Ray, too.  But you'll be missing out on the Two-Disc Criterion's following features:

We’ll Miss You BSG Weekend TV Preview

Friday, March 20 by

While the series finale of Battlestar Galacica may not come with such a hullabaloo as did with the Seinfeld finale, ScreenJunkies can whole heartedly gurantee you it will be a 100x more satisfying send-off. Is BSG one of the best shows in TV history? So get all your nerdlinger buddies over and throw a big viewing party with Battlestar Bento and Battlestar Cocktails and get Battlestar Drunk. BE WARNED–If you have to record it on your DVR, remember that the finale is 2 HRS and 11 MINUTES LONG. All your other favorites on schedule too (FNL, T:TSCC, BB), but dammit, if you have to watch anything this weekend, make sure it's Battlestar. Your preview after the break.

30 Rock Recap: The Bubble

Friday, March 20 by

This newest episode of 30 Rock begins with Liz Lemon telling Kenneth she is ducking up town to have lunch with her boyfriend, Drew. Initially, Kenneth is confused; Liz Lemon doesn’t normally have many boyfriends. But yes, to Liz’s delight, she is still dating Drew. Tracy tells Kenneth he wants jerk chicken and pictures of pregnant women in their bikinis. Kenneth already has these items ready, he always knows what Tracy likes. Jack asks Liz how Tracy’s mood seemed. Jack is negotiating Tracy’s new contract and is a little nervous. Liz walks down the street with her boyfriend. Everyone they pass compliments Drew, including Calvin Klein, who wants Drew to be the next underwear model.

REVIEW: KNOWING

Friday, March 20 by

Knowing, opening today, is a compelling film that walks the line between horror and science fiction – a genre blend right up the alley of director Alex Proyas, who probably gained the biggest notoriety from the cult fave Dark City.  Unlike Dark City, Knowing takes place in the very real world – Melbourne, Australia doubling amazingly as Massachusetts and NYC – and its story drums up a question that’s come to all our minds at some point: does Earthly life have a purpose, or does “sh*t just happen?”

MORNING NEWS IN 3-D

Friday, March 20 by

In a Time.com article on the future of 3-D filmmaking, Josh Quittner – lucky sum'bitch that he is – got to check out some footage of James Cameron's Avatar, due in December.  According to Quittner, "[Avatar] could be the thing that forces theaters to convert to digital."   WETA's VFX is creating an entire world from digital scratch, and Quittner apparently had trouble separating pixels from reality.  Cameron theorized that 3-D viewing "is so close to a real experience that it actually triggers memory creation in a way that 2-D viewing doesn't."  Spielberg predicts it will be the biggest 3-D live-action film ever.  I think that's like saying Louisville has a chance of beating Morehead State in the NCAA Tourney today.Here now, the rest of the news…Tara Reid Starring in The Fields (Dread Central) Little Fockers Likely Gets Smart Director (Variety) New Terminator: Salvation Poster (/Film) Sorority Row Trailer Goes Up (Pajiba)Hanks-produced Agent ZigZag Finds a Writer (Variety)

The Unmanageable Manager

Friday, March 20 by

The new boss for the northeastern branches, successor to Jan and Ryan, comes into the office so Michael can introduce him to his branch to get to know it better, while Jim has to suffer because he wore a tux to work that day to mess with Dwight for being strict about the dress code.  The new boss is none too lenient, though, and starts cracking down on office spending while several office women eye his good looks.  Michael doesn’t like the new boss too much, and pesters David about him.  It’s the shot in the arm this Office season needs, and it’s right after the jump.

YEAR ONE: THE FIRST FULL TRAILER!

Thursday, March 19 by

Today, Columbia Pictures released the full theatrical trailer for Year One.  We get to see Jack Black and Michael Cera leave their village, head out on a way old school road trip and run into some familiar figures along the way (like a pissy Cain and Abel played by Paul Rudd and David Cross). I'm glad that Michael Cera's getting to spread his wings at least a little bit.  He's still playing the awkward, quirky geek that we've become accustomed to, but at least he's doing it in the ancient world.  It kinda works.  Check out the trailer after the jump and tell us what you think about this Michael Cera and Jack Black epic team-up in the comments section.

SLEEP DEALER TRAILER

Thursday, March 19 by

Sleep Dealer, from relative newbie director Alex Rivera, takes its visual cues like a westernized, live action version of some funky used-future Japanese anime flick.  Set against the backdrop of the US-Mexico border in some kind of alternate, not-so-distant future, it already seems disturbingly credible.  Don't take your border patrol friends opening night.  Check out the trailer and a more detailed plot synopsis after the jump.
