Magicians Rob Banks In Dorkiest Way Possible In 'Now You See Me' Trailer

On the one hand, pretty cool. On the other, it necessitates wearing a top hat. Critics of the Occupy Wall Street movement have lambasted the group for their lack of organization, clear-set goals, and now, magic. Now You See Me follows a group of snazzy dressed magicians who seemingly teleport into banks and blink out with all of the money. Jesse Eisenberg mixes his Marc Zuckerberg with David Copperfield while joined by Woody Harrelson, who stops preaching the magic of hemp long enough to convince us of the power of actual magic. However, I think the real magic here is the silky tones of Morgan Freeman. He even made the magic loom from Wanted seem believable.

Trailer For ‘Fright Night’ Has Everything But Magicians

It does have McLovin, though. As the world eagerly anticipated the first trailer for Fright Night, one thing was clear: We would finally get to see David Tennant's magician/vampire hunter character in action, perhaps squaring off against Colin Farrell's vampire. So imagine my disappointment when I watched this trailer, only to see that there's not a single magician in the damn thing! What it does have, though, is Anton Yelchin and McLovin exchanging one-liners, and Colin Farrell as a vampire with the least-threatening vampire name since "Max": "Jerry." It actually looks pretty good - it might not be as sexy as Twilight, but it's a lot funnier and less boring.

First Clip From ‘Red State’: Drinking, Group Sex, Not Sexy

Will 'Red State' be Kevin Smith's version of "Skins?" With underage drinking and implied group sex with teens, you'd think that all signs point to yes. Will Red State be Kevin Smith's version of "Skins?" With underage drinking and implied group sex with teens, you'd think that all signs point to yes. However, a creepy older woman with three teen boys, plus a discussion of shag carpeting, and the fact that it's a horror film makes me think I should stop consulting my Magic 8-Ball so much. Check out the awkward first promo clip above to see for yourself. This is the movie that Smith almost, kinda, but never really actually planned to sell the distribution rights to at a Sundance auction. He's taking this film about teens who get terrorized by a "holy force" after responding to a kinky online ad on the road. He compared the indie distribution model to Gone With The Wind, but the comparisons end there, unless Scarlett O'Hara's famous quote is actually, "As God is my witness, I will never go hungy for d*ck again," after which she put an ad in the personals and ended up getting three teens killed. I admit that I slept through part of it, but somehow I don't think that happened. (Dread Central)


This Film of 20 Strangers Kissing For The First Time Is Magical

As cliched as it sounds, watching strangers make out for the first time, for art, really is a thing of beauty... For her short film First Kiss, artist Tatia Pilieva gathered 20 strangers together and pretty much said  "hey you just met and you probably already don't remember this person's name, but make out in this studio, in front of my camera, OK? Great." It's just as awkward and uncomfortable to watch as it sounds...until it's not. Maybe it's the sweet song or the beautiful photography, or the fact that most of these people are really quite attractive (they are actors, after all), or  perhaps it's witnessing a human connection that's both physical and emotional, risky and strangely fragile blah blah blah—whatever it is, the result is, as cliched as it sounds, beautiful and surprisingly touching. Watch it, even a cynic like me will understand why it's gone crazy viral, reaching 7.5 million views (and counting) in just one day...


McConaughey & Harrelson Chase A Serial Killer In HBO's 'True Detective' Trailer

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have teamed up, surprisingly not to raise hemp awareness (it's a versatile material!), but instead to have a drawl-off in the upcoming HBO series True Detective. They star as two detectives -- Harrelson is the family man and McConaughey is the tortured one who sleeps naked and leans back in chairs -- tracking a serial killer across Louisiana over the span of seventeen years. I don't want to spoil the series for those who haven't read the book, but prepared to be disappointed to find out the killer is actually a really methodical alligator.


Paul Rudd Got Conan With 'Mac And Me' Again

It never gets old. Paul Rudd has been playing the same trick on Conan O'Brien for at least twenty years. He'll visit Conan's show to promote a film but when it comes time show a clip, he throws to a scene from Mac and Me, the McDonald's-produced E.T. knockoff about a handicapped boy and his encounter with aliens that look like William H. Macy. Last night, while promoting Ant-Man, he was sad to report that Marvel wouldn't allow him to play that trick again. So, he played an all-new trick. It never gets old.
